Calculate Days Between Subtotaled List
In the attached workbook, I have subtotaled a list of parts. I want to add a formula beside the subtotals, under Column C, "Days BO", that subtracts earliest date in column R from the latest date in column R, for each part number.

I have added a simple formula to the attached example that does what I want, but the full sheet will be thousands of lines weekly, with varying part numbers, and different counts. I don't know how to take the count function into account so I can copy a single formula all the way down the sheet.

Formula To Calculate Average/wtd Avg On A Subset Of A List
I will do my best to explain but just in case I have attached a worksheet to make things easier. I have a list of a few thousand products with data on each product. When I run through a series of cuts, I get a subset list and want to be able to calculated a weighted average by somehow saying to do a weighted average (and/or count, and/or average, etc.) on the characteristics of only the products in the subset.

Calculate Average Based On Item Chosen From List
My attached files contains stock returns for companies. Each sheet contains the returns over a 5 year period for a certain stock, with the ticker symbol of the stock used as the sheet name. I want to write a sub that presents the user with a user form. This user form should have an OK and Cancel buttons, and it should have a list box with a list of all stocks. The user should be allowed to choose only one stock in the list. The sub should then display a message box that reports the average monthly return for the selected stock.

Sum Every Nth Cell & Calculate Difference Between 2 Different Time Interval List
I have two sets of data, one is recorded every 5 minutes and the other is every 15 minutes. I am trying to add every 3 cells in the 5 minute column so I can compare it side by side with the 15 minute column. I have tried one of the responses in this forum with placing 0s in 2 cells and then the formula in the third however this does not allow me to compare the 2 sets side by side.

Named List: Data Validation To Restrict The User To Only Selecting Values In A List
I'm trying to use data validation to restrict the user to only selecting values in a list which I create. Right now, the list is a named range. I'd like to get rid of the range and just use a named list. I create a name using the following as my list.

Insert > Name > Create
Name: Fruit

Refers to:

When I try to use the name Fruit in my data validation, I get the message "The List Source must be a delimited list, or a reference to single row or column." I thought my name "fruit" was a delimited list.

Created Validation Drop-down List - Can I Make The Row Now Change To The Colour That Relates To The Selection From The List
I am trying to create a fairly simple spreadsheet with about 8 columns and about 400 rows. One of the columns features a drop-down list with about 8 or 9 different options. Dependant on which option is selected, i would like the entire row to change colour with that option.

For example:
FAILED - whole row changes red
SUCCESSFUL - row has no fill
Tested - row changes to orange


Is this possible within Excel 2003?

Validation List Based On Named Range Not Restricted To List
I am attempting to use a named range as my Validation data source but have two questions:

1) It seems when you use a named range as a source the user can enter in any data they want in that cell. I really only want the user restricted to the list I give them. If I enter the list manually in the source box then it works but I really want to use a named range

2) My range is fixed to 10 cells and the user can enter in as many variables as they want (up to ten). When a user clicks on one of the cells that the validation is set to read the range the user has to always scroll to get to the top. When selecting the cell Ecel always defaults to the bottom choice in the list. I want to minimize the VBA because Mac users will be using this and VBA seems to be touchy with macs.

Update Horizontal List Based On Vertical List (ins Column)
1. I have a list of several items in sheet 1. Lets say 30-40 rows.

2. I do a frequently update of this list.

3. In sheet 2 I want to have a copy of this list in row 1 from column A to Column x (depends on how long the list in sheet 1 is.)

4. When I change the list in sheet 1, could be in first, middle or last row- mayby several rows. The list in sheet 2 should be updated

5. The update of sheet 2 should insert a new column on the right place, according to the list in sheet 1.

Create Unique List From Matrix & List Frequency Of Each Occurrence
I've searched the forum and believe this thread to be the closest to what im looking for, but its doesnt completely apply: matrix to list conversion. I have an attachment to support my questions (see attached). I have a matrix of words (strings) that contain repeating and non-repeating contents. The matrix also has spaces which are of no value. Essentially, the VBA needs to ' analyze' this matrix and create a consolidated frequency list (as shown in the file).

The matrices are HUGE and therefore some of the clumsy VBA i am using is turning out to be a bit inefficient. The file also contains formulas and such that I cannot use AutoFilter nor can I use Insert or Delete the VBA shouldnt use those either.

Validation List: Wide As Widest List Item
I am trying to make some of my data validation dropdown list boxes narrower. I was told one way to do that is to use combo boxes. (If there are any other ways, please let me know!)

I don't think my combo boxes are working. I had tried to make a combo box appear in each data validation pulldown cell by using this tutorial:

I followed this tutorial word for word, but when I try to test the code at the end by double-clicking on a data validation pulldown cell, no combo box appears.

Find All The Records That Appear In My List More Than Five Times Then Make A List
I have a list of 200,000 e-mail addresses in a excel document in column A. What i am trying todo is find all the duplicate e-mail addresses within the list that appears more than four times.

I have tried this forumla in colunm B so it lists how many times the record appears: =countif($A$2:$A$244270,A2) which works fine and then a number appears next to each record. Then i pressed the sort filter to arrange all the records in number order so all the 5's are at the top of the worksheet but that does'nt always list them in the correct number order.

Basically all i want todo is find all the records that appear in my list more than five times then make a list of just one of those 5 records so i can remove them from my e-mail system.

Manage A List- List Full With Numbers In A Column
1- I have a list full with numbers in a column. And I want to count how many digits are there in every cells. If digit of the number is less than 7, macro will complete it to 7 digits by adding 0 (zero) at the beginning of the number.

Example: A1 = 85468... A1 value is 5 < 7 in this case our number will be 0085468 (total 7 digits)

PS: sometime, when numbers start with 0 (zero), excel delete all 0 value at the beginning of the numbers. Macro should prevent this error.

2- I have another list with 2 columns which arranged in order. I mean:
A1=xx1, B1=xx2, A2=xx3, B2=xx4, A3=xx5, B3=xx6... etc. One is at A column, next number in B column.

My request is I want to make this list 1 column as arranged.
A1=xx1, A2= xx2, A3=xx3, A4=xx4... etc.

3- Macro will add a new line to the end of the above list with this format:

Z00001 is static
xxxx is number of the full cells of A column plus 1. It will be 4 digits. If count is less than 4, it will complete it to 4 digits.
Example: if there are 15 cells in the list, last line will Z00010016 (15 + 1)

Using A List In A Pivot Table To Generate A List On Another Sheet

What i am trying to figure out is how can i make the list on Sheet B change when new accounts are added to the pivot on Sheet A (without simply referencing the pivot table making one cell equal the other)? I am not looking for a data validation pull down, i want a full list of the accounts.

Filtering A LONG List To Entries In A Shorter List
I have a list of email aliases for my company, approx 10,000 entries, mapping the alias to an email address. Two columns, one the alias firstname.surname, second column being the full email address. I have a second list, a subset of these aliases, approx 1200 of them, that are users of a particular web app. All i have in this list though, is the firstname.surname bit.

What I need to do is compare the lists, and where the aliases match I need to pull out the corresponding full email address from the long list, so I have 1200 aliases in the shorter list, with the full email address mapped to it. Is this possible in excel? i've tried all sorts of LOOKUP functions, and MATCH functions, but none seem to work. MATCH will give me the corresponding row number in the long list, but then it seems to offset itself every row it goes down, so the values are 1 out for every row. First row is good, second row -1, third row -3, fourth row -4 etc.

I don't want to have to manually go through 1200 entries and match them against a 10,000-entry list. Hopefully there's a quick way in excel to filter the long list down to the entries specified in the short list?

Update A ComboBox List, Which List Is On A Different Worksheet
Need Help in resolving the following issue:

Update a list using a Combo Box works fine when the list is on the same worksheet but when the list is on a different Worksheet it does not work.

Is this achievable? I guess so! but was wondering how to do it.

e.g: if my range defined name called let us say "SP" with a range AD1:AD60 in Sheet1 when I use a combo box the Listfillrange will contain: SP

When inserting a new entry using the combobox it works fine but when the same defined name range points to a different Worksheet example: Sheet2 then the update does not work although the ListFillRange contains the same Range name: SP.

List Teams In Rank Order From List
How do I list selected data by order of appearance in a list?

Suppose I have a named range somewhere in my workbook called "TeamsRanked".

This range contains hundreds of names. The data associated with each of these names appears in a table in the workbook in rank order. The teams are ranked in descending order according to points scored. This means that the ROW() for the HIGHER-Ranked teams will be LOWER than the ROW() for the LOWER-Ranked teams. Also, this named range is constantly being resorted as updated data is introduced.

Now...Suppose I want to monitor just a few of the names??

For example: Cells A1:A3 on a separate worksheet contain the names of the teams I want to monitor.

What formula do I need in Cell A5 to return the HIGHEST ranked of the teams in Cells A1:A3?? Cell A6, to return the next highest ranked. Cell A7, to return the LOWEST ranked.

I tried some IF(ROW(MATCH...)) ---"is less than" ---IF(ROW(MATCH...)) formulas...and I keep getting INVALIDs in my formula palette.

Make Data List And Copy From A List

A5 = Alan
A6 = Kevin
A7 = Mark
A8 = Dominic
A9 = John
A10= Tom

How can I make aonther list in column B, which contains a list of name in column A without repeating. So that B1 = NAME_2, B2:B4 is exactly like A2:A4, then B5 = Kevin, B6 = Mark, B7 = Dominic, B8 = Tom, B9 = Frank.... and so on. Another question, which is very similar to the previous one. In the same column A, now I add an AutoFilter (Data > Filter > AutoFilter) in A1. A drop down arrow button will appear at the right side within A1. Click the down arrow and another box shows: Sort Ascending, Sort Descending, All, Top 10, Custom, Alan, Ben.... the rest of the data in Column A but each unique data will only shows once in that list. How can I copy the contents of that box?

Determine If Value In List Exists In Another List
I have 2 sets of data in my excel spreadsheet.

Column A has a bunch of numbers and some duplicates
Column B has the same numbers but lots more and no duplicates
Column C describes what column B number does

All I want is for my formula to return the value in C when A#=b#:b#. The if statement, that I can't figure out how to get it to work right is this. =IF(A2=B2:B1021,C2:C1021)

This is fine if the 1st value is true (meaning a2=b2), the problem is the IF statement returns the 1st value in the array(I think) which in this case is false. An example of the array is below, the result of my formula is always false unless i change B2 to equal A2.

List Duplicate List Values
I have an excel spreadsheet that is several thousand entries long. There are cases in which duplicate entries will spring up on that list.

What I want to do is come up with a formula that will find the first duplicate entry in that list and then display that entry in cell on another worksheet. If it was at all possible, I would also like to have the row that the duplicate entry is contained on display as well, in a different cell of course.

I do not want to highlight them using conditional formatting since I have used that to perform other tasks on that sheet and that wouldn't display the entries in a different cell for me, and I would prefer not to use a macro to perform this function it that was at all avoidable.
