# Conditional Counting ...

Jul 12, 2006

Basically I am trying to count how many people are overdue on tasks and my spreadsheet layout is non-changeable. I have used the DATE function to calculate data in cells that I would like to count the occurrences if the result of the formula exceeds a criteria, but the cells I would like to count are every other row not continous where I could use something likeB3:B8. In the example I posted I would like a count where the result of the DATE function for cells B4, B6, and B8 results in a date less than today's.

## Conditional Counting

Jan 18, 2006

I have 8 columns.
The first column is a counter
The 7 others contains codes for faults on 7 different channels that get theres value from manual input.
The codes has a value and from all this i get a graph. Count/points.
Now i need to know when criterion is met and mark the count in the graph some way.

Fault codes:
A
B1-B13

For example:
Criterion 1 to be met: Fault B1 or fault A

Criterion 2: One individual channel >B1 or >two channels with B1 or > one channel with A

Criterion 3: One individual channel >B2 or >four B1

The criterion is judged by row. So when it find a row that match one of these i need that
count to be marked in the graph and then that criterion is set and not needed to be checked no more.

## Counting Based On Conditional Format

May 30, 2007

i have a spreadsheet which is used to keep the training records for the company it counts no of staff and their skill levels for different parts of the job, when a person moves to a different branch the skill required changes and they have a set period of time to aquire the new skill.

when the time is up the colour of the old skill is changed to a red font by a conditional format based on the date.this is then counted by a calculation so the team know how many people are to be targeted for extra training.

the problem i have is the calculation will not count conditionally formated cells, so whenever i update the sheet i have to go to each cell with red text and change the font colour manually to red, this sounds really silly and is impossible to explain to anyone who does not understand conditional formatting. i e the people who will end up using the database

what im looking for is a way to count conditionally formatted cells based on the condition being met i.e. they are showing as red font.

## Search Worksheets, Conditional Counting?

Mar 9, 2007

My workbook is made up of a number of worksheets, A master sheet, which creates new sheets for each work order I enter. Therefore, eventually I will end up with a large number of worksheets that I will have to sort through to find what I need. I put in a command button to allow me to search and hide all of the worksheets that do not match the the work order number I entered. However, if no sheets contain a matching number, then all sheets will be hidden, except for the master sheet. I want to add an exception that pops open a message box if no matches were found and stops the code. I was thinking of doing a conditional count to count all worksheets that match the criteria. If the count = 0, then the message box will open.

Private Sub SearchButton_Click()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim Search As String
Search = InputBox("Enter work order", "Search Archives", "")
For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
If ws. Range("D4") <> Search And ws.Name <> "Master" Then
ws.Visible = xlSheetHidden
End If
Next ws
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

## Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting And Counting Coloured Cells?

Nov 1, 2011

i have a spreadsheet in excel 2007. It shows a students target grade in one column and their recent test mark in another column. Firstly i have applied conditional formatting to say whether or not the student has hit their target, below or above, using red, yellow and green colours. This all works fine.

Now i would like to add a formula that counts the number of cells that are red, yellow or green etc.....

## Excel 2010 :: Counting Cells With Interior Colors Set Via Conditional Formatting

Jan 3, 2014

How to sort out a way to count cells whose fill colors have been set via conditional formatting.

I'm sure that I was once able to use Chip Pearson's CountOfCF function back in the days of Excel 2003, as it worked around the 3 condition limit and used .ColorIndex which assumed that you'd only ever be formatting using the .ColorIndex values of 1 to 56, but I can't seem to be able to get it to work in 2010.

## Conditional Formatting Counting Characters If Less Than X Characters

## Counting Matching Values In Two Separate Ranges Without Counting Duplicates?

Jan 1, 2014

I cannot get various formulas (Countif, Match, Frequency, Etc) to work properly.

I am trying to arrive at a total number of matches of numbers in cell range B1:G1 with any numbers entered into the cell range of K1:P11 and have the total of matches display in cell H1.
However I do not want to count duplicate numbers from the K1:P11 cells. (if the number 5 in posted in K1:P11 multiple times I only need it reported once in H1)

B1:G1 is the constant and the numbers will not change - K1:P11 cells will be populated by adding numbers until the all the numbers in B1:G1 is completed and match.

Range
B1 C1 D1 E1 F1 G1
2 7 19 45 22 13

H1 Total of matching numbers in cell range K1:P11

## Conditional Formatting Based On Another Cell Conditional Format

Mar 20, 2013

Is it possible to change the format of cell AI3 based on the format of cell C3 and D3? I have C3 and D3 set to turn red based on what is in cell C2 and D2. I would like the following done:

If AI3=C3 & C3 is red, format AI3 blue
If AI3=D3 & D3 is red, format AI3 blue
Otherwise, leave AI3 unformatted.

Possible???

## Conditional Median Formula Into Conditional Quartile / Percentile?

Apr 15, 2014

Having trouble changing this formula from its current Median to a Quartile or Percentile. The median formula looks like this:

(MEDIAN(IF(DATA!\$B\$15:\$DZ\$15=1000,DATA!\$B26:\$DZ26))) and works perfect.

However I can't figure out how to manipulate it into a percentile keeping the condition of

IF(DATA!\$B\$15:\$DZ\$15=1000)

## Conditional Percentage Based On Conditional Sum

Mar 13, 2008

I have a list containing blocks of stock price values with each block representing a series of values at a given time e.g

1400 156
1400 99
1400 74
1400 86
1400 256

The number of entries may vary for each block but is never more than 60. the next block may be e.g.

14:05 15
14:05 42
etc

and down a very long list of around 65000 entries. I'm looking for a routine that will add up all the values in each block and calculate the total for that time block. I then need to fill in an adjacent column with the perecentage that each value is of the total. A completed block may look like;..............

## Counting Up From Certain Value?

Nov 26, 2013

want to count up from a certain number but rather to a certain number.

Basically I am making a spreadsheet of products which already have product ID's, however there are 1000's of these. So I am doing them by manuafactuer, so some sheets do indeed start from 1, but pretty much every other sheet starts from a number like 1300, or even 2563.

how I would go about making excel automatically fill in the ID field?

So it would show like;

1300
1301
1302
etc etc

## Counting From Various Columns

Apr 29, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with 3 sheets, the first sheet is to be an overview of the entire workbook used to keep track of training,

The last sheet (Called Raw_Data) contains various coloumns, the two I am interested in is the training course and the name, as someone completes a course I record what the course was, who did it and date/time of start/finish,

What I would like to do it to count on the front sheet how many times someone has completed a course

Operational Overview
Joe Blogs

Work Pratices

From the above table Job blogs should flag in a cell for Incident Handling Processes twice, Is this something that can be done via a formula as I am trying to avoid VBA.

## Counting In A Column?

Jun 2, 2014

So I have an annoying dataset to work with. The first column contains ID#, string, string, string, ID#, string, string, string, string, ID#, string, and so on. It is basically a list of patient numbers with a list of their appointments listed underneath them. I need to find a way to count up the number of strings for each patient, like shown below:

Patient#
Count

101
2

The format isn't too important. The data I have is basically column A, and I want to create column B.

## Counting Cells That Are Different

Oct 23, 2007

Is there a function in Excel that will count cells that are different from one another? I.e. it would not count the same value twice. For example, in column A:

a
a
b
a
b
b
c
a
c

The result would be 3. However, if I replaced the first "a" with a "d" I would get 4 as a result. Basically I want to know how many different arguments there are in a list. I could not find a function that does this in the Excel list of functions.

## Counting Certain Numbers?

## Formula For Counting

Nov 20, 2008

How do I get cell C4 to give me a total of the times a score in column C is > than opposing score next to it in coumn D? Also, a total in cell D4 to show the number of times this team's score was less than the opposing score in column C. This would be for a running Win/Loss record.

## Counting Particular Cells

Nov 22, 2008

I am now attempting to do the same type tally except I want a tally for "in conference" Wins/Losses.

I tried the same "SUMPRODUCT" formula as before except this time I held the control key down so as to use only the cells desired. I'm getting "VALUE" for my answer though.

The row I have added in for in conference tally is row 3.

All blue colored cells are for the ACC conference and the green are for the SEC.

Is there a way to get the win/loss figures for selected cells / rows only?

## Matcing And Counting

Feb 3, 2009

A quick background. I have a large dataset on radio stations in the US. The data (that I will illustrate below, and sorry if it looks like a mess, I run on a mac and don't know how to get the right structure when I paste it in) contains the following:

Column A: Owner (owners of radio stations - by their name: e.g. Clear Channel)

Column B: Owner (same owners above, but with corresponding ID-numbers instead, e.g. 83)

Column C: Market (a market which holds both owners and their radio stations, e.g. Boston)

Column D: Market (same as market above, but with the corresponding ID number instead, e.g. 21)

Column E: Number of stations - this column represents the number of stations that a particular owner has IN ONE MARKET. OBS: A owner with 4 stations in Boston, will have four cells, in which all of them say "4", so be aware of the problem with doubles, tripples, etc. ........................

## Counting By 2 Or More Criteria

Jun 2, 2009

i have to create a summary of the productivity of the administration staff in my office. i have a table of raw data that shows the jobs they open each day, but i need to find a way of counting the number of those jobs.

i've included an example so that its easier to understand what i'm getting at.

on the first sheet (Jobs) i have the table of raw data. each administrator opens jobs each day which can either be S (standard) or W (Warranty). the second sheet (Summary) shows the way i need the data to be summarised. effectively i need to narrow my count by 3 criteria (Date Opened, Job Type and Administrator).

i've used DCOUNT functions in the past to count data by more than 1 criteria, but as this system will be in place for every day of the year, that means i would have to produce a table for every administrator and every type of job and every day of the year. which would be 3650 different tables, and that's too many.

is there a way i can do this more effectively? or can i somehow make the DCOUNT tables relative so that the table can look up the date required, reducing the number of tables required to 10?

## Counting Times

Aug 25, 2009

## Counting Wingdings

Sep 20, 2009

I am using arrow wingdings (CHAR233 or CHAR234) in the same
column and I would like to count them.

I don't need a separate count of 233s or 234s I just need a
count if the column is occupied by one or the other.

I have tried various contexts of the formula posted below without
success.

How do I count multiple characters in the same cell?

=COUNTIF(A11,CHAR(233,CHAR(234))
