This should be easy if you break it into no digit repeating, one digit repeating and two digits repeating (you cannot have 3 digits repeating in a 5 digit number).

There are 9P5 = 15,120 permutations without any digit repeating.

There are 9C4 * 5!/2! = 7,560 permutations with one digit repeating. 9C4 for choosing 4 digits letting one repeat and 5!/2! for arranging the 5 digits.

Similarly, there are 9C3 * 5!/2!^2 = 2,520 permutations with two digits repeating.

Overall, there are 25,200 5 digit numbers with no digit repeating more than twice. This is still only just about 1/4th of 90,000 possible 5 digit numbers.
