Conditional Counting Of Characters In Cells/Ranges

Sep 9, 2006

I have a spreadsheet, a small section attached. There are near 20000 rows at present. I need to count the number of characters in B1 excluding any hyphen in b1. If a hyphen occurs in b on its own,the count is zero.If b cell is blank,i need a count of all characters in A.I need a formula I can autofill down.The count column is c and I have completed it manually to show what I mean.

Cells in the range of BG8:BP8 either have a "W" or an "L" in them. I want to have cell BO9 display the total number of Ws and cell BP9 to display the total number of Ls.

I need to count cells withdates in theme in a column. So that would be a CountA function; but only if the values in the cells are within a certain date range, a COUNTIF function. Here's what I thought:

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.

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.....

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.

I have 62,000 lines - and some of the cells contain 4 numbers, and some of the cells contain a sequence with two letters followed by 8 numbers

I want to count how many cells have the sequence of two letters and 8 numbers.

Everything Ive read so far has led me to using the LEN function, but that doesn't seem to be working too well for me.

Example: In D5 if I have AB00011111

Basically =LEN(D5) will tell me there is 10 characters in the cell - How do I get it to count the cells with only 10 characters and post the number of cells with 10 characters in column E1 for me.

In one of my columns I need to count the characters (alpha/numeric AND blank spaces) in each cell. (Any that are over 300, I will need to manually reduce to under 300.) How can I do this? Basically I would simply like to know which cells exceed 300 characters.

I'm making a register and need to count the attendences (marked on the register as 1) and the number of authorised abcenses (marked on the register as AA).

I'm using the SUM function to count the attendences but wondered if they was a formula that would allow me to just count the AAs from the list.

We are in the middle of a system conversion and I need to make sure our data is not over the length of the maximum character count for certain fields in the new system. Is there any function in Excel that counts the # of characters in a cell or will highlight the cells that contain larger than a certain # of characters?

This should be simple, but I am struggling with finding a way to use the search or find function to identify text characters. This is my situation, I have for example a cell that contains FW023 or D1234. I need to be able to count the number of characters that are text.

i would think I would be able to do it with the search or find function, but can't figure out how to get it to just count the number of text characters with in it.

I need to be able to paste information into excel and then get excel to read the characters to 50 and then move the other info to another line and do the same command again until it has read all the data and put it in lines of 50.

I am trying to count the number of patients that were in a hospital during specific times (time and date). I want to know, by hour, how many patients are in the hospital. I am using a month of data as my "sample size".

I all the start times (e.g. 3/1/2008 12:35:00 AM) and leave times (e.g. 3/1/2008 5:52:00 AM) and I want to have the patients by hour for the month. So I want to know that during, as an example, 2:00:00 AM to 3:00:00AM there were 40 patients in the hospital.

So I will eventually combine all one hour periods (e.g. 2:00:00 AM to 3:00:00 AM) for all the days, but it's counting (patients per hour)

I am trying to work on a spreadsheet (I am very new to all this). I have colum I with dates in and Colum K with dates in... When a product comes into my shop I enter the date it arrived in Colum I and when it leaves I enter the date in Colum K.

What I would like to try to work out is how do I ask Excel to tell me How many blank cells there are in Colum K if I enter a date range for Colum I

I will try to give an example.

Colum K may have 200 entries for the week 6/5/13 to 10/5/13. I need to know how many cells are blank in Colum K if the date range on Colum I is between 6/5/13 to 10/5/13

The end result should basically tell me how much stock I have left in my shop for that week.

I have found something that sort of works by using this =SUMPRODUCT((I1:I200<=TODAY())*(K1:K200="")) but ideally I need to be able to change the word TODAY into a date range like 6/5/13 to 10/5/13 and I cant seem to do that???

I run a small holiday cottage and I want to use excel to tell me which days of the year I get most enquiries for.

Every time I get an enquiry for a certain period in the cottage, I enter the dates into excel.

I have two columns - Start of holiday and End of holiday.

What I would like to do, is give each day of the year one point if someone enquires for it.

e.g. If someone asked for 3rd january to 5 january, I would give 1 point to the 3rd and 1 point to the 4th of january (but not the 5th as that is the day they would leave!)

At the moment I find it easier to count with pen and paper than use excel for this problem.

What i need is the following: In cell B1: if A1 is greater than 08:00am but less than 14:00pm than B1 should have a tick which is green, if cell A1 is greater than 14:00pm than B1 should have a cross which is red...

I'm working on a report right now that I would like to identify incorrect phone numbers. So I'm looking to use the LEN function to identify and highlight any phone number that is incomplete (like missing area code). But I also don't want it to highlight if there is an "N/A" in the cell.

So I was using =LEN(A1:A100)<10 since 10 digits would be a complete phone number). But I don't know how to manipulate it to be if the cell is greater than 3, but less than 10.

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.

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.

I want to know the formula which sums up volume and multiply it with given price to get the value by category. An example is given in the encl. excel file.

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.

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

I have created a sheet which has 52 named ranges representing the week numbers.

I would like to apply VBA Conditional Formatting to each week with the following if a cell is empty colour the interior Green if not empty colour the interior Red.

I am trying to apply conditional formatting to the range K60:R82 based on their corresponding cell in the range K87:R109 (the arrays have the same size). If each cell in the first range is greater than their corresponding cell in the 2nd range, then the cell in the first range should be formatted with pink fill and red text.

Any way write a conditional format formula to shade a cell based on two ranges.

Here is what I need:

cell b4 should be colored in if n4:xfd4 = today's date AND n3:xfd3 = "Time Off". The part I am having trouble with is that it should only shade if today and time off are in the same column.

Here is an example:

This one should shade B4(note: Today is 08/13/2013):

time off late

08/13/2013 08/10/2013

This one should not:

late time off

08/13/2013 08/10/2013

This is what I came up with so far, but it shades the cell if either show up in the entire range:

=AND(MATCH($G$1,$n$4:$XFD$4),MATCH($H$1,$n$3:$XFD$3),1) Note: g1 contains =today() and h1 = "Time off"
