Hello. 

 

I have a dataset that has the following set up.

 

member_id sold_dt product

1  xx/xx/xxxx a

1  xx/xx/xxxx b

1  xx/xx/xxxx b

1  xx/xx/xxxx c

2 xx/xx/xxxx a

2 xx/xx/xxxx a

2 xx/xx/xxxx a

2 xx/xx/xxxx b

 

What I want to do is end up with a dataset with the following set up:

member_id product_cnt

1 3

2 2

 

I want a count of the unique products.
