# Automatic Way To Enter Data Into COUNTIF Formula?

May 21, 2014
I have a huge (for a newbie ) spreadsheet where every item is associated with several key words. There about 500 key words, all in the same column, and I have to build a table identifying the total frequency of each key word. Basically, the first column of the table I've created lists all the possible key words, and the second one is all the COUNTIF formulae, each one being associated with its corresponding key word. The formula I need to use is this one :

=COUNTIF($D$2:$D$8486;"corresponding key word from column 1")

The formula works well and my table looks fine, but the task of copying and pasting 500 key words into each occurrence of the formula is pretty daunting! is there an automatic way to enter each key word into the corresponding formula without having to do it manually? Otherwise, is there a more direct way or another formula that would give me the information I need? Surely there's a more efficient way to do this, but I just don't know how!

I have a very long list in columns A and B, about 1000 rows. I was just wondering how would i be able to setup an automatic formula that can produce the data in column D and E?

Ideally, i would the sequence running every 5 rows but iam doing this manually and running the sequence every 5 rows would be way to slow.

Is there a way to add data into a cell that already had a formula? Lets say in cell A1 we have a formula like "=A1*A2". Would I be able to some how enter a value into cell A1 without changing the formula?

Example: enter value "5" into A2 and value "10" into A1 which would result in A1 value being "50" after value is entered.

I know that this creates a circular error but is there any other way to accomplish this?

Is it possible to have a formula in a cell which can be overwritten by manually entering in a number, but if the manually entered number is deleted, the formula remains in the cell.

This formula must be confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER not just ENTER. You will see { } brackets appear.

Currently i am using below formula to get the data from Sheet 'Dec,11'

I have sheets from Jan,11 till Dec,11 and I would like to give a cell reference A1 where I will enter the Sheet name and I should get the data of that sheet.

=COUNTIFS('DEC,11'!$AH$6:$AH$4457,$BE$5,'DEC,11'!$T$6:$T$4457,A6)

Actually I tried entering like this

=COUNTIFS('A1'!$AH$6:$AH$4457,$BE$5,'A1'!$T$6:$T$4457,A6)

But its not working.

I really know nothing about vba so here goes. I would like to enter data in a row with 4 cells of info. then hit enter and return to the first cell and move the row down. all four cells must have data entered. and all four must move down. i tried some code as below i found and i modified but it did not work as expected. this moved the row down when returning the cursor to A2. It also should not copy the data style of the top row.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)

If Target.Column <> 1 Then Exit Sub

Application.EnableEvents = False

[Code].....

I am looking for a formula that will take data from one page and graph it on another page. The data I am trying to graph is arranged like so:

A B

1 q 2009.05.01

2 w 2009.05.02

3 w 2009.05.01

4 q 2009.05.01

I am looking for something that will look at column A and if the answer is "q" and then look at column B and if the answer is "2009.05.01" Excel will take that and count it in a specific cell on another page. In the case above, I want Excel to give me the answer of "2" in a designated cell.

I have attached a sample of the spreadsheet. The cell/cells in question are f32:f36 on the first tab.

Question #1 how this formula works or what it does.

Question #2 Is when I enter the required information in cells a32:e32 it enters an N/A in cell f32. When I than click on cell F32 and than click on the formula bar and hit enter the information populates.

I thought I could update formulas dynamically by dragging into new cells but it's not working.

Problem: I have a time series of input from a device that samples at 40Hz. The output I get from this device in Excel consists of 40 columns in row 1 (representing the first second) and then it creates a new row - row 2 - which also consists of 40 columns of values (representing second 2) - and it does this until the end of the response period which for me is 10 seconds. When I do a quick filter I end up with 10 rows, each consisting of 40 columns of data and all of this represents 1 trial. This then repeats for 32 trials.

I want to have all of my data for each trial in the same row. So I want the first 10 rows essentially collapsed into 1 row so instead of a 10x40 matrix representing one trial I have a 1x400 matrix representing that trial.

It starts out well enough - I make a row for my first trial and, if trial 1 second 1 = H2:AV2 and I'm typing in cell AY2, I just write =H2 in cell AY2 and drag across for 40 cells until I get to CK2 which will have =AV2 in it because of the automatic updating from dragging. Then I move one cell over - to CL2 - and type in =H3 and start the whole process again until I have all my 400 values in one row. I know this is a tedious way to do this but I figured once I did this it would be a simple matter of formulas and dragging to fill in the rest.

Not so. Is there a way to dynamically update references? So for example, cell AY2 has the formula =H2 in it. Now I KNOW that in AY3 I want to have the formula =H12 (because the beginning of the next trial is 10 rows down from H2) and I know I want AY4 to have =H22 etc. but when I drag the reference to H2 down it just changes it to H3, which makes sense but having a formula like =AY2+10 returns the value in AY2+10 instead of the reference, which again makes sense but I'm totally blanking on how else to do this. I've tried using offset and indirect and offset, for example, will work if I hard code in the numbers (e.g. =offset(H2, 10, 0)) but if I drag this formula down neither the 10 nor the 0 changes so I get the same formula in every which is obviously not what I want (and I guess if it did change, it would just change the 10 to 11 anyway, which again, is not the increment I'm looking for). I've also played around with adding constants of 10 and got nowhere, probably because I'm doing it wrong because I'm fairly sure I'll have to add a constant of 10 somewhere.

In my "example" I have references in Summary!D23:E32 which take data from Input!B36:U36. Is it possible to automatically update these formulae if a row is inserted eg above my row 37? The formula in D23 should then change from =OFFSET(B37,-1,0) to =OFFSET(B38,-1,0) and so on. I would like this to occur wherever I insert a row.

I am using this code, but it inserts rows consecutively from the top only.

Sub InsertVolRow()

Dim iRow As Long, iColumn As Long

On Error Goto Exit_Error

iRow = Application.WorksheetFunction.Match(" Total", Range("A:A"), 0)

Rows(iRow).Select

Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown

iColumn = Application.WorksheetFunction.Match("Total", Range("2:2"), 0)

Cells(iRow - 1, 1).Select

Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range(Cells(iRow - 1, 1), Cells(iRow, 1)),

I have a spreadsheet that contains a list of dates: What I need is a formula that will count the number of cells that hava a date more than 6 months old. I also would like the field automated so I don't have to change the date manually every day.

=COUNTIF(S5:S593,"<2012/06/18") This formula will give the correct read out, but I must change the date manually.

My attempts at adding a =today() command in place of the date result in 0 being the result (not correct)

This is what I have tried: =COUNTIF(S5:S593,"<"=TODAY()-"183")

I am currently streaming financial data into excel which updates on a minute by minute basis. Every minute a new row of data is automatically inputted based on market activity. Is there any formula/function which would expand to cover the new data as the amount of cells increases? Is there any way that I can have it so that the function/formula only looks at the last 20 or so cells, so its like a moving/rolling formula/function?

I am looking to create a spreadheet that will automatically shade blocks in a gannt chart according to a list of dates.

I.e B13 & B14 will have the start and end date of the particular task or activity (this will be on another sheet)

Row A3 - S3 will contain dates, iusing a lookup formulas excel will look up the activity name (or number) and look for the relevant date, if the date listed in row 3 is within or equal to that date it will return yes, if not a no.

this seemed straightforad, but I cant think of a consistent formula that will do this, without having to keep changing it ...

I have a table with rows that keep growing. But I have place formula in the whole of column F, i.e. F2:F66565. When I import information from MS Access into column A to E, the formula in F does not work, until I copy from F2 to the end manually. I have tried using Tools, Options, Calculation, Automatic. That doesn't work, I have also tried F9, that doesn't work and I have also tried checking Precision as Displayed under the calculation tax in Tools-Options, that doesn't work either.

I have following Array formula in Cells N1:N3.

HTML =SUM(IF(O$4:O$1000="Total I/O Points",N$4:N$1000,0))

Each formula has different text in "".

There are a few macros in this workbook that delete and/or insert rows.

When that happens, the formulas listed above get modified with different references. How do I restore the formulas back to the same range reference [O$4:O$1000]?

I am trying to write a macro which will get values from column B and C and print the result on column D using a simple function like the one before:

D2 = "text" & B2 & "text2" & C2 & "text3"

I need this to be done in the macro, so that when I click the button, it will automatically create column D. Column B is formula and column C is constants.

I tried something like the one below:

formula that can automatically use the current month date to extract information from other cells on my spreadsheet.

For example: This formula should be located in cell C6. Cells D6, F6, H6, J6, L6, N6, P6, R6, T6, V6, X6, and Z6 (these cells correspond to the months of the year, January to December respectively) contain the values I need. The month names are labeled above in row five.

Let's say the current month is March, I need the formula in C6 to automatically know that it is the month of March and to pull the information from cell H6 (which is the March cell). Then when April comes along, it will know that it is April and to only pull the information from cell J6; and so on until the end of the year.

I need to write a formula that calculates after a value is entered. As in I want the cell to show 12% of whatever value is entered. The form needs to look as it does so I considered inserting a column and shrinking it down so it isn't visible, however this would be a last resort. I am building a spreadsheet for others to use and excel is not something they readily understand.

I am thinking something like:

if(0,0),ifx,(x*12%)

x being the entered value. Is this possible? I am hoping for some out of the box thoughts.
