# Allocating Employee Names With Unique Reference Number

Oct 31, 2008

I have been given a database with peoples names that require a unique number to hide/replace the name to hide their identity for a meeting and to act as a ghost system.

The problem i have is that some individuals names on the list appear more than once so i cannot simply call Joe Bloggs number 3 as he can appear further down the list at number 120.

I was wondering is there is a way to do this without manually replacing each name with a number and making and logging the persons name that corresponds to the number.

as there are 600 names and some can appear up to 4 - 5 times!

## Count Unique Names Only Not The Number Of Times It Appears?

Apr 4, 2013

I've got a set of data that I update once a month and the number of team members per team changes all the time. I'm trying to write a formula that basically says, if the date matches AND the manager name matches, count the number of team members.

In the attached sample if A2 and B4 are found in the data set, count the number of SalesReps they have. So I'm looking at Sarah for February 2013, she has two sales reps that sold something, but Katherine appears twice, so I'm not looking for a result of 3, the correct answer is 2. How do I write the formula?

A2 will look to the data range of A14:A23 and SarahK will look to I14:I23, but I want to count H14:23.

## Sumproduct: Determine The Number Of Unique Names In Column

Jan 22, 2010

I have 1500+customer names in column C7 of table. I'm looking for a SUMPRODUCT formula that achieves the following 2 logical goals. First, it needs to determine the number of unique names in column C7. It can't just count the rows because many customers appear multiple times in the range. So, I have been using the following formula and it works great:
=SUMPRODUCT(
((Table[C7]<>"")/COUNTIF(Table[C7],Table[C7]&"")))

Second, I'd like the formula to tell me how many of the unique names in C7 correspond to public companies. Column C8 of my table indicates whether or not a company is public ("Yes") or private ("No"). So, I've been using the following formula and it seems to deliver the right result:

=SUMPRODUCT(
((Table[C7]<>"")/COUNTIF(Table[C7],Table[C7]&""))
*
(COUNTIFS(Table[C7],Table[C7]&"",Table[C8],"Yes")>=1))

But the added COUNTIFS statement seems very unwieldy and indirect to me. Why do I have to examine every instance of a particular company's name when the answer could be determined by looking at any instance of the name -- after all, each company in C7 is either public or private, and has the same corresponding value in C8 (whether "Yes" or "No") everywhere that its name appears in C7!

So that's my first question: is there a clearer, more efficient way to achieve the same result? My second question has to do with toggling the public company test.
What if I create a special cell, say A1, that will always contain either the word "On" or "Off"........

## Generate Unique Reference Number?

Jan 9, 2014

I'm wanting some sort of formula to generate a reference number that relates to numbers i put in a cell. i want the end result to look something like this:

Reference number
362 3620001
456 4560001
362 3620002
487 4870001
456 4540002

As you can see id like it to generate a reference number to the number that i input, and also when i input that number twice or three times it picks that up on the reference number also.

## Sumproduct (count The Number Of Unique, Or Distinct, Company Names In Column)

Jan 28, 2010

I want to count the number of unique, or distinct, company names in column [C7], subject to two conditions that will exclude certain unique company names from the count.

I should also point out that most company names appear multiple times in column [C7].

a) Count the unique company names in column [C7]...

b) ...including only those companies who have at least one "Yes" in column [C8] somewhere among their records

c) ...and who also have at least one value equal or greater than "1" in column [C15] somewhere among their records

Note that that there is no requirement that the "Yes" and the "1" ever appear in the same record.

## Create Unique Reference Number For Data Entry

Mar 20, 2007

I'm making a user form in excel/vbe, that will enter data into a worksheet behind the form. I would like to make a unique reference number that is automatically generated by the form as the next in the series. It can be as simple a number as 00001 so nothing too complicated I hope.

When the user opens the user-form i would like the reference to appear on the form so that they know what it is. Then when they enter the data I want the number to go in the database with all the rest of the info they have entered and also for a message box to come up reminding them to rememeber their number.

## Subtotal Non-Unique Items By Employee

Nov 28, 2008

I have a list of sales associates by items by manufacturer. I need to count how many manufacturers are represented by each associate. It might look something like this:

Smith, John Brand A Beer 12 oz Beer Industries, Inc.
Smith, John Brand A Beer 8 oz Beer Industries, Inc.
Smith, John Brand B Vodka 700ml Vodka Industries
Jacobs, Sally Brand C Wine 1989 Wine Makers Co
Jacobs, Sally Brand C Wine 1979 Wine Makers, Inc.
Jacobs, Sally Brand D Wine 1908 Old Wine Makers, Ltd.
Jacobs, Sally Brand E Beer Six Pack Fun Beer Co.

So the totals would be:

Smith, John Total # of Manufacturers: 2
Jacobs, Sally Total # of Manufacturers: 3

So the formula ignores the duplication in employee names and manufacturer names.

Is this possible? I'm thinking something like =sumproduct((Range=AssociateName)*(sum(1/countif(ManufacturerRange, ManufacturerRange)))

## Employee Number

Sep 3, 2007

I have a list of employees that i need to simplify into groups as listed below

Employee No's
1-19
20-50
50-199
200-499
500+

In my list of data (attached) that i receive i currently manually count the employee numbers and then put them into the relevant bands dependant on the employee sizes. Example:

Employee List
4
28
35
46
503
376
2000

Employee No's
1-19 - 1
20-50 - 1
50-199 - 3
200-499 - 1
500+ - 2

## Excel Automatically Insert Employee Number

Sep 6, 2013

Is it possible with excel, to automatically insert an employees number if their name is inserted.

Example:
Column A If Smith, John is entered in Column B automatically have his employee number show 5668?
Joe, Mary entered in Column A Column B to show 12345

This would save me a huge amount of time going back and fourth.

## Counting Number Of Days For Each Employee Since Last Day Of Absence / Tardy

Aug 9, 2013

I am trying to get the correct formula to count the number of days it has been for each employee since the last occurrence of an absence/tardy. For each employee, starting with the beginning of the year, we mark and employee as Absent as an "A" or Tardy as "T". See below the examples.

...................................1/1 ....1/2 ....1/3 ....1/4 ....1/5 ....1/6 ....1/7 ....1/8 ....1/9 ....1/10 ....1/11 ....1/12 ....1/13

Captain America ................................A ..........................T .....................................T
Incredible Hulk.......................................................................................... A
Spider Man ........................................................................................................................ ........A
Iron Man ....................................................T

( I added dots because it wouldn't let me space them out?)

We are keeping track so that employees have the ability to make up numbers because after so many occurrences they can become terminated. If an employee has about 60 days in a row without an infraction, that employee can deduct a day from their total on the year.

Any formula to use. Also to include a vlookup so that I could have their name as well with the number of days on a separate tab!

## Rota - Add Up The Total Number Of Hours Per Week Per Employee

Oct 14, 2007

I am trying to create a rota in excel but I am struggling to get it to add up the total number of hours per week per employee.

It get a little complicated as they work split shift so they may do 4 hours in the afternoon and another shift in the evening going into the next day, example they may work 11.00 am - 3.00 pm and 8.00 pm untill 2 am.

## Formula- Calculate The Number Of Days Since An Employee Worked

Oct 16, 2009

I am trying to calculate the number of days since an employee worked. Column A has the date and columns B,C, and D show the name of the 3 employees who worked that day. Each row shows the next day in column A with the three employees who worked that day in columns B,C, and D. I need the format of the excel sheet to remain the same. I'm looking for a formula that will calculate the number of days since each employee has worked...there are 10 different employees and only 3 work each day.

## Count Number Of Days Since Employee Last Day Of Recorded Absence / Tardy

Aug 9, 2013

I am trying to get the correct formula to count the number of days it has been for each employee since the last occurrence of an absence/tardy. For each employee, starting with the beginning of the year, we mark and employee as Absent as an "A" or Tardy as "T". See below the examples.

Employee Name
Date:
1/1
1/2
1/3
1/4
1/5
1/6
1/7
1/8
1/9
1/10

[code]....

We are keeping track so that employees have the ability to make up numbers because after so many occurrences they can become terminated. If an employee has about 60 days in a row without an infraction, that employee can deduct a day from their total on the year.

Also to include a vlookup so that I could have their name as well with the number of days on a separate tab!

## Create A List Of Unique Names From A List Of Multiple Names

Oct 21, 2009

I have a database output file where one of the columns contains managers names, often more than once. I want to apply an autofilter on manager name and then copy the result to another sheet or sheets. My criteria for the autofilter is a variable pointing to a list of names that at present I maintain by hand; a for-each-next loop then cycles through the names.

What I would like to do, before running the autofilter code, is to create the list of names via code. This would then automatically pickup names that are missing.

The code I have so far is below:

Public Sub find_managers()
Dim managers1 As Range
Dim names1 As Range
Dim n1 As Variant
Dim n2 As Variant

In my mind it should check the names in the unique list against the imported list and add any missing names.

## Calculate Employee Vacation Accrual Rate & Number Of Days Taken/Left

Jun 18, 2009

Our office has a vacation days accrual policy based on number of years worked. We have a vacation days number, based on year of employment, the employee earns monthly. I need help with a worksheet, formulas, to document each employee, the year of employment they're in, # of days they have available based on the current month (which would need to add up automatically as the year progresses), then any days they request off, and finally a remaining balance of days left.

## SUMPRODUCT & Dynamic Range: Total All The Blank InDates For Each Technician By Employee Number

Feb 22, 2009

I have what I thought was going to be a simple function to create and, after a week of getting more error messages than I've had in a year, I'm ready to throw in the towel. Situation: There are two worksheets in the same workbook [Excel 2003]. One is for "Posting" details about technicians and their work orders. The other is a "Report" that summarizes the number of workorders open, closed, etc.

In the "Posting" sheet, I have created dynamic name ranges for two columns: Technician (4-digit text field) and InDate (date field that, if blank, means that the technician has not closed this work order. My ranges are set up like this:

Technician=OFFSET(Posting!\$B\$2,0,0,COUNT(Posting!\$B:\$B),1)
InDate=OFFSET(Posting!\$D\$2,0,0,COUNT(Posting!\$D:\$D),1)

So all I need to do is to total all the blank InDates for each Technician by employee number. I've tried COUNT to SUMPRODUCT. A co-worker got it to work with using...=SUMPRODUCT((ISBLANK(Posting!\$D\$2:\$D\$65307))*(Posting!\$B\$2:\$B\$65307=4288))
His solution was to list almost every available cell in each column. I just can't help but think that the dynamic name range should be able to work but I can't get it right. I think I'll choke if I get one more "N/A" or "VALUE! error.

## Allocating Costs Across A Row

Oct 27, 2008

I'm developing up a spreadsheet to conduct a feasibility on a 50 unit townhouse development and I was wondering if there was any way of allocating costs across the project without physically typing in the data in each month? (96 months in cashflow!)

ie: - In a row headed "Roads & Drains" can I allocate the say \$500,000 worth of works across the months by using a formula or other methods?

My current method is very time consuming when I want to conduct a sensitivity analysis,

## Allocating Capital Expenditure Across Months

May 19, 2009

I have project's start date and end date and total cost. I want to spread the total cost across month on top using the total number of days[calculated using the end and start date] that project will run and the number of days that project is in that month. I have highlighted the area in yellow where I want formulas to work.

## Allocating And Carry Over Order Quantities

Jul 16, 2014

I have a sheet which is just a list of product codes and a sum of every order placed for each code. i.e.
Sheet2  AB1Prod codeOrdered2123100345650478960

then I have another sheet which is the orders placed by our customers. These orders are to go out in 6 periods each of 2 weeks.
For various reasons the amount ordered each time won't match the periods.

The sheet beforehand will look like

Sheet1  ABCDEFGHIJKLM1Prod codeP1 REQALLOCP2 REQALLOCP3 REQALLOCP4 REQALLOCP5 REQALLOCP6 REQALLOC212327 20 35 20 12 11 345633 40 50 15 25 11 478915 20 20 20 20 10

What I need to do is look up the quantity ordered and then allocate the ordered quantity to the periods carrying over the remainder to the next period and so with the table above the result would be

Sheet1  ABCDEFGHIJKLM1Prod codeP1 REQALLOCP2 REQALLOCP3 REQALLOCP4 REQALLOCP5 REQALLOCP6 REQALLOC2123272720203535201812 11 34563333401750 15 25 11 478915152020202020520 10

Both sheets are sorted by the product code ascending and it doesn't matter if it is a formula or VBA based solution as I am already using both.

The number of product codes is currently just over 400 but will grow to about 550 by the end of period 6.

## Unique Names From Multiple Columns?

Jan 22, 2013

I have multiple columns with names (lets say columns A, B, and C). I want to place only the unique names in column E. Is there a formula to do this? Each column does not contain all the names and each has names that are not in any of the other columns.

## Drop Down To Only Pull Unique Names...?

Oct 3, 2008

I have successfully loaded a combo box lookup in one cell referencing a column in another worksheet. While the drop down is pulling in all the names listed, there are duplicates in the data set. I want the drop down to only pull unique names. Is there a way I can do this and still use the combo box feature.

## Adding Values Against Unique Names

Apr 2, 2009

I have a spreadsheet with a series of names in a column and respective dollar values in a separate column. I would like a formula to automatically total the value spent against a particular name (without having to enter the name as a value each time).

Example

John Doe 3.89
John Doe 1.27
John Doe 0.98
Amy Smith 1.56
Amy Smith 2.29
Amy Smith 1.11
Alex Brown 0.67
Alex Brown 4.56
Alex Brown 8.87

I would like a formula to automatically populate a column, spreasheet, etc as follows:

John Doe 6.14
Amith Smith 4.96
Alex Brown 14.10

## Ranking With Only Unique Names Attached To Values?

Apr 1, 2014

I'm making an excel file where I keep track of the scoring in a little competition me and my friends do with betting on sports.

However, I got a little problem trying to automate my ranking.

Naamloos.jpg

As you can see in the image, when there is a duplicate score, the name stays the same for every other same value (Joris). The formula I use (also as seen in the image) just takes the first name it comes across (from left to right) and keeps using that one. But I need it to ignore the name Joris the second time, and ignore Joris AND Tim the third time, so that every score/rank (even if the scores are a draw) has a unique name attached to it.

## Finding Unique Names When Comparing Two Lists

Jan 25, 2010

I have two different lists of names. One is about 3000 names long and the other has about 3500 names. I want to identify the 500 people that are not in the first list that are in the second. If there anyway to do this? I was going to put them in A-Z order and then go through and using an IF(A=B,"yes","no") and go through and insert new cell when ever it says no till it says yes BUT the functions start messing up when I insert a new row and it's taking way too long.

## Formula To Look Down A List And Pull Out Unique Names Only?

Jun 4, 2014

I have a list of names in column A these names repeat themselves a lot and I don't know how many there are.

now I want to make a list of the names in column c starting at C2 that looks down row A finds names and puts them in column C one after the other.

## List Of Data :: Unique City Names

Jul 16, 2008

I have list of various city names in column B. From that i need unique city names in validation cell.

The reason is,

we have emp id, name, designation, area, marital status for our employees. From that if i select emp id from validation cell1 i have to get all employee id's available in the sheet1 is need to come under the validation2 cell automatically. and if i select "area" from validation cell1, all unique areas need to be list out in the validation cell2. Its look likes a filter. but without filter i need this for creating application.
