Hi all,

I created an Addin to summarize a field using FeatureCount() method and add the result table into a list view. the purpose of the tool is to find duplicate atttributes. The code bellow works fine but it takes about 1 minute to return the result when quering multiple features (more than 5000 features for example). I am wondering if there is a sql statement to use such as Select fieldName, Count(FieldName) from table Group by FieldName, or is there a way to call the summarize field command in ArcMap? Also, attached is a screenshot of the tool with results.[ATTACH=CONFIG]33859[/ATTACH]

  'define datastat to query unique values
            Dim pDataStats As New DataStatisticsClass()
            'define data collection
            Dim pEnum As IEnumerator
            pDataStats.Field = selectedFieldName
            pDataStats.Cursor = fCursor
            pEnum = pDataStats.UniqueValues

            Dim dataStatResult As IStatisticsResults = pDataStats.Statistics

            Do While pEnum.MoveNext

                'Add unique feature in the first column

                newlist = ListViewDataresult.Items.Add(pEnum.Current)

                'define the whereclause
                Dim whereclause As String = String.Format("{0} = '{1}'", pDataStats.Field, pEnum.Current)

                Dim queryFilter As IQueryFilter = New QueryFilterClass()
                queryFilter.WhereClause = whereclause

                    'Adding the count of features in the second column
                Catch ex As Exception
                    MessageBox.Show("Ooops, FieldCount Error: " & ex.Message)
                End Try
