    Does anyone know how to convert a date entry from Unix format to Gregorian calendar format?

    I have a long table with Unix values for date and want to plot a count of row entries within a certain date range...

    Any ideas?

    Also... how do I count the number of occurrences of similar entries in a column... i.e.

    1
    1
    1
    2
    2
    3
    3
    3
    3
    4

    I want to be able to count the number of occurrences of 1, then the number of occurrences of 2 etc etc

    >> a date entry from Unix format

    I don't know what that is ; to me, this is like saying "how many fingers am I holding up?" ;)

    >> number of occurrences
    Say those are in A1:A11. Enter 1, 2, 3, 4 in d1:d4 respectively. Click & drag to select E1:E4, type
    =FREQUENCY(

    Click & drag to select A1:A11, type
    ,
    Click & drag to select d1:d4, type
    )
    Press CTRL+Shift+Enter.

    If you need to extract a unique list for the bins, use
    (Data -- Filter--) Advanced Filter. You'll need a header cell (label) for your list. Action = copy to another location, list range = A1:whatever, copy to = wherever, unique records only checked (OK).

    HTH,
    Andy
