In a Pivot Table, show the most frequently appearing text entry by a certain parameter

{0 Comments}

Here's a simple two column dataset

Comment Identifier Intervals
A 3pm-6pm
A 9pm-12pm
S 3pm-6pm
S 3pm-6pm
S 9pm-12pm
A 9pm-12pm
S 9pm-12pm
D 3pm-6pm
A 9pm-12pm
A 9pm-12pm
A 9pm-12pm
A 3pm-6pm
A 3pm-6pm

For identifiers listed in column A, there are time intervals in column B. Note that for a certain identifier, a time interval can appear multiple times. The objective is two-fold:

  1. For each identifier, show the time interval which appears most frequently; and
  2. For each identifier, compute the count of the time interval which appears most frequently

The expected result is:

untitled

As you can observe, the result for S is two time periods - 3pm-6pm and 9pm-12pm.  This is because each of them appears twice.
