# Formula To Make Sure No Cells Are Duplicates

Feb 14, 2008A1 = 3

A2 = 3

A3 = 3

formula: =A1A2 gives us FALSE....

Why does =A1A2A3 give us TRUE

What is the best formula to use to make sure no cells are duplicates?

I am creating a formula. The formula needs to be something like this:

[Code]...

Basically, I need the formula to read the value in cell A and if it is a "1" then the value in Cell G will remain, all other values in cell A will erase the values in cell G.

I have a problem using indirect in a counta function. Basically, I want to count the number of used cells in a range. However, there would be insertions to the rows (using the insert row) on top of the range.

my function is now =counta(indirect(" events database"!"A"&M22&":A"&M500)

However, this formula returns an error. What have I typed wrongly?

I need a formula that will search the range D8-D100 to confirm that all cells within that range are either 11 characters in length or blank. I will use it inside of an error message that will look something like this:

=IF(****formula that checks to make sure all of the cells in that range are blank or 11 characters****=TRUE, "", "Please make sure that all cells are 11 digits or blank")

I need to figure a way to make to cells with dates equal each other if the

day,month and year are the same but are placed into a cell at different times during the day. "Making Date Now () = (06/29/09) In another cell". Therefore, A1= Now() and E11 = 06/29/09

Is it possible to make a cell "really" blank/empty based on an If statement? For instance:

=if(a1>10,a1,"")

Has a value_if_false of "". But Excel interprets this a bit differently than a cell that never had anything typed into it.

So if you have a column full of this formula copied down, and hit <control+down arrow>, you will go straight to the bottom and skip over all rows. Whereas if you have a column with values and empty cells alternating and hit <control+down arrow>, you will only skip the empty cells and go to the next value. Excel treats the conditionally empty cells as if they have a value, when it comes to this type of navigation. This holds even if you copy and paste "Values" for the cells over the formulas.

Is there any way to tell Excel to make the cells truly empty?

I have my dummy data, and I have (what I think) is how I want the data to be shown. My friend uses Google Sheets, but I prefer Excel. I am trying to convert the code because I am a stickler for excel. Typically I can convert codes some easily, but this is way beyond me.

For Column A: I want to create a list on sheet 'Setup!' based on ids!D2:D="yes". If that list has duplicate entries, I would like only the first entry to show up, but for the next entries I would like the cell to be blank. (this is important for the next step) For Column C: I want to have the corresponding dates go with the name entry. For Column D: I want to have the notes go with the corresponding date entry. (I believe I can manipulate Column C's code to do Column D myself).

I am also going to upload a data sheet, and an expected results sheet.

Creating a project tracking sheet that is as automted as possible so that people dont have to populate lots. I have managed to get it to create a new sheet and populate according to a filled out combobox. The user then populates a 'milestone' section. When a button is clicked these are transferred to a GANTT chart type sheet and pasted. Before they are pasted the macro checks if the project title exists, if it does not it first pastes the title LEFT INDENTED. Then follows by pasting the milestones CENTRED. If the title exists, it inserts the milestones under the project title by copying and pasting all milestones. Hence, if milestones are regularly added, it will begin to add duplicates of the same milestone. I need to remove these. I would usually be able to do this however there is often the same milestone in numerous projects which I CANNOT remove as it would loose data. I would like a code that says between the cell I was searching for (Rng) and the next cell which is also left indented to remove duplicates. Basically I can't use x1enddown because it needs to stop at the next cell which has the same formatting... i.e. only duplicates to be removed out of the cells which are centred. I would then like it to repear this action for the whole document and move the next left indented cell and do the same.

It feels like a kind of backward conditional formatting is what I am looking for

Here is my code as it stands

Dim FindString As String

Dim Rng As Range

FindString = Range("D2").Value

If Trim(FindString) <> "" Then

am making Excel for private use, i need the following makro to be active, here is the idea because i didnt yet work with makros at all:

If A1 = False

then Range B1:D1 will be locked cells

If A1 = True

then Range B1:D1 will be unlocked cells

Those rules apply to 1 day in the year.

the range A1:D1 will be copied about 400 so the makro should be active to each day separatly.

Check the picture attached for example of one day

A9, B9, C9, D9, etc.

On the next tab, I want the cell in D5 to equal A9, D6 to equal B9, D7 to C9, etc.

I can't seem to lock the cell correctly to do this. If I use =A$9 in cell D5 and then copy down in cell D6 I'll get A$9 also, but if I use $A9, in D6 I'll get $A10.

I have the following formula

=IFERROR(INDEX('Data - CURRENT'!$B$2:$B$2500,MATCH(LARGE('Data - CURRENT'!$BA$2:$BA$2500,ROW(A1)),

'Data - CURRENT'!$BA$2:$BA$2500,0)),"")

This worked wonderfully until a duplicate crept in to Column B. Now there is the potential for many more duplicates. Column B holds an 8 digit numerical number. I am just struggling to add in a parameter that ignores any duplicates that have been added

I have two columns of email addresses and I want to make sure that between these two columns there are no duplicates.

I have a list of what we call "model codes" which are is a similar format to "DFS41FC57DD728NCWRY3"

The attached sheet is an example of a tracker sheet that I am trying to put together. No matter how I look at this I cant get my head around how to make this work

Basically It would work fine if all of the amounts were different. But in the cases where the retailers have been offered the same level of support YTD it is causing duplicates to pull through into the formulated tab.

I attached will clear up my query.

I have highlighted in red where the duplicates are showing

PS - It does need to be formula driven

TEST Manual Bonus Tracker 2014.xlsx

In cell G1 I have my snapshot dates header and dates running from G2 to G31. Next to in Column H I have the sold items by Product A.

There are 6 different snapshot dates and I need them to be horizontal with a formula and none duplicated with the largest (newest) date first so I can SUMIF the sold item per date. If I simply pull a LARGE formula it will return 24-05-2014 in all rows is it is the biggest "value".

When I them add new snapshots (biweekly) then the horizontal snapshot line will automatically add the newest dates (i.e. find the largest or newest, the 2nd newest snapshot, the 3rd newest, etc. Hence, in K2 we would have 09-03-2014 with 672 sold items in K3 (via SUMIF), in L3 we would have 18-03-2014 and 7523, in M3 23-03-2014 and 1703, etc.

I'm not sure if I explained it well enough. I'm attaching a file if this makes more sense.

I have a set of text in rows which includes duplicates like this:

Column A

Text 1

Text2

Text1

Text500

Text500

I then need to remove the duplicates and put them in column B. I normally use the remove duplicates button in Excel to do this but seeing as I have to do this task every day, I was hoping there would be either a formula or VBA solution which automatically does this?

I know it can be done cause I've used it before but I can't seem to make it work this time. I want to use the conditional formatting to compare two ranges of cells within one worksheet I know it's something like =match(A2:C12) the two ranges are sitting one on top of the other. . .

I need those duplicates pulled out into another cell with its amounts from column B, then total the amounts from column B. This would give the user the total amounts from column B.

I'm currently using this formula to show the last date of a entry ie A15, on a 2 different worksheets, the forst worksheet always has a A15 entry and the 2nd worksheet currentmonth! sometimes has and entry.

=MAX(LOOKUP(99^99,currentmonth!A:A/(currentmonth!B:B=A15),currentmonth!A:A),LOOKUP(99^99,mainlogbook!A:A/(mainlogbook!B:B=A15),mainlogbook!A:A))

and if I don't have and entry in this section of the formula (LOOKUP(99^99,currentmonth!A:A/(currentmonth!B:B=A15) which sometimes I don't.

It yields a #N/A Error.

Is there a way to make this formula work if there is no entry of A15 on the currentmonth! worksheet?

It is an example of a list of menu items that I need to put a tick next to whichever item (instead of a 1) in order for the cost of the item to appear in the B column of the Menu Costing Combination sheet. Without the tick the amount does not appear.

How do I go about putting the tick mark in the cell instead of having to put a 1? Of course, the formula in column B will have to be changed in order to replace the number 1.

I need to be able to enter text in a box, and from that box the formula looks at the text to see if it is in within strings of text in any other box in the entire spreadsheet. If the text is there, the box needs to turn green (or any color). If not, it stays the same. The catch is I need the formula to be in a separate box, and the Entered text will be in a blank cell, so the user (who is excel illiterate) will not be confused by the odd formula.

Example:

B1, B2, C2, D4, and D6 will have the items: XXX, YYY, ZZZ

B3 and B4 will have only: YYY

In the "search box" the user will enter XXX

B1, B2, C2, D4, and D6 turn green, while B3 and B4 stay as normal.

If they enter YYY in the search box, all of them turn green.

If I have different equations in various cells without an = sign (text only) how do I make the cells into formulas without using the formula bar?

e.g Cell B1 has text in it A1+A2+A3 and we need cell B2 to be =A1+A2+A3

I have a DDE code that returns a stock symbol value. The code is as follows, where @ES# is the symbol:

G10: '=NeoTicker|q!'

H10: '@ES#
