# Count Instances In Multiple Columns?

Mar 19, 2013

What I'm trying to do is input a formula in col G which will look for instances of the city named in col F in both cols A and C. This should then return the total of these, from cols B and D that have the letter "F", into col H. Therefore, in the attached example, cell G2 would return "1", G3 would be "0" etc.

Should I be using VLOOKUP or COUNTIF, or maybe a combination of these or something totally different?CityCodeCount.xls

## Excel 2003 :: How To Count Cells With Instances Text Not Instances Of Text

Aug 17, 2012

I'm using WinXP with Excel 2003 - I have a column of highway sign description data (16k+ rows).

Example:

Curve Arrow Right
Curve Arrow Left
Turn Arrow
Reversing Curve Arrow Right
Winding Road Arrow(plus many more unique entries)

I'm using SUM and COUNTIF to total the number of times "Curve", "Reversing", "Turn" and "Winding" appear in the column.

My formula is:
Code: =SUM(COUNTIF(\$F11:\$F16196,{"*CURVE*","*REVERSING*","*TURN*","*WINDING*"}))

Which works great EXCEPT what I really want is the number of cells with any of those key words, not the total count of those words. The example above should be 5, but since row four contains more that 1 of the key words I'm getting 6.

## How To Count Instances Of A Row Of Several Cells

Dec 13, 2013

Basically, I have a table with rows as person, and variables as features. If a person meets a feature, the that cell writes 'X', now, I hope to create a master variable that capture all the features, basically counting how many features a person has met. For example, Joe has three features; "have balls," "cool guy", "good with ladies". In the cell in question would be "X" "" "X". And if I count, then it should be 2.

## Formula To Count Number Of Instances

Jan 29, 2007

I need a formula to count the number of times the same thing occurs in a particular column. i.e. tree 1, tree 2, tree 3. I just tried the countif function and it is returning "0". Not sure if that's because the data I am looking for is part number/part text. Does this make a difference? There are also spaces between the number and the text. Also, the range I am asking excel to look in is based on a concatenate formula.

## How To Count And Report Instances Of Text In Block Of Cells

Feb 17, 2014

I have a workbook consisting of two sheets: a Monthly Class Schedule (Divided into five one-week blocks. Each block's vertical is Mon to Fri, the horizontal is 9 class slots. There are 45 class slots pw). Each class has one student and the cells are filled 'Student Number, First Initial, Surname' eg, '666 J Smith'. Students may be scheduled for several class slots per week and some class slots have no students scheduled. When the student attends a 'P'is added at the beginning of the cell eg,'P 666 J Smith'.

The Student Attendance Report has the students listed vertically on the left, arranged by Student Number, and then a column for each week.

At the moment I have to manually count the classes each student has attended for each week and enter the attendance figures in the appropriate week column. It's a PitA so I want to automate the process by using the S#s in the Attendance Sheet to search the week blocks in the Schedule Sheet for 'P S#' and auto-fill the week columns in the Attendance Sheet.

## Count Instances Of Part Cell Text In Range

Jan 21, 2008

I need a formula which I am using to count instance of sickness. I include a sample copy of my data which I hope will make my request clearer! I'm currently using the below formula to count the number of continuous instances of any code starting with "SICK" =(SUMPRODUCT((LEFT(C\$10:C\$37,4)="SICK")*(LEFT(C\$10:C\$37,4)<>(LEFT(C\$10:C\$37,4)))))

I would also like this formula to count any code starting with LTS as well (Long Term Sick). Due to the nature of sickness there may be continuous periods where both SICK and LTS codes are used, at the moment I can not come up with a formula to return the value I need. These columns may contain other codes but for simplicities sake I have only shown the relavent ones.

## Excel 2010 :: Count Number Of Instances Complete In Certain Time?

## Count Combinations Across Multiple Columns?

Apr 23, 2013

I need to count how many times a code appears over a 6mth period only on a single day. The data would look something like:-

1/1 2/1 3/1 4/1 5/1 6/1 7/1 8/1 9/1 10/1 etc
a b c a a b a a b b

If counting b the result would be 2 on the above 10 days as it appears on the 9/1 & 10/1 it would not be included. It is to be used to count the number of times somebody only appears on a single day over a period of time but not count them if they come back the next day.

I cant think of a way to do this using in built formulas (Countifs, sumproduct, etc) The example is basic and there could be up to 20 codes.

## Count Multiple Columns And Criteria

Mar 13, 2014

What I'm trying to do count the TRUE values in multiple columns, if the criteria is correct in another column.

I've tried countifs but end up having the company included into the count, or only count the row that matches all the criteria.

If I do =COUNTIFS(A2:A7,"A",B2:B7,"TRUE")+COUNTIF(C2:C7,"TRUE") then I get 5.

When I change it to +COUNTIFS(A2:A7,"A",C2:C7,"TRUE") it works but there's a time where I need to check up to 8 Options.

Company
Option 1
Option 2

a
True
True

b
True
False

c
True
False

a
True
False

a

## Count And Sum For Criteria In Multiple Columns

Aug 17, 2007

I am trying to figure out how to create a formula using multiple criteria in different columns. Ideally, I need to use the whole column (i.e. E:E rather than E2:E400) because I don't want to have to update the formula every time I input data.

I will simplify my spreadsheet for example purpose. Basically, column A has a unique identifier that either begins with an "M" or an "R." Column B either contains a person's name or a "-". Column C contains a dollar amount.

1. I need to be able to count all the cells in Column A that begin with an "M" AND have a "-" in Column B.

2. I need to be able to SUM the \$ amounts in Column C ONLY for the items that begin with an "M" in Column A and have a "-" in Column B.

Is there any sort of formula that might do this? I have tried SUM arrays but as I said before, I would rather be able to use the whole column.

## Find Multiple Instances In Multiple Workbooks

Feb 16, 2008

I'm trying to search through a group of Excel files for specific values in column B and then copy and paste the value from column C of the same row into the current worksheet if the search term is found. Thanks to some help from turtle44, I can do that if the search term only appears once, but if it appears more than once, I can only find the first occurance.

I have searched through te archives and found lots of people asking for the same thing. The common suggestion is to use .FindNext, but no matter how I try to use FindNext, it doesn't give me the results I want. It either seems to find the first occurance again or to find nothing at all.

Here is a simplified version of my code, if someone could just explain how to find the second occurance of "Use Code" and past the relevant value into column F of the destination workbook, I'd appreciate it and I should be able to work out the rest on my own.

Sub SearchAllXLSFiles()

Dim lCount As Long
Dim wbSource As Workbook
Dim wbDestiny As Workbook

On Error Resume Next

Set wbDestiny = ThisWorkbook

## Count Multiple Columns Meeting Condition

Dec 21, 2004

I have a column (A) in sheet1 with these values:

Code
a1 04800128
a2 04800178
a3 04800128
a4 04805555
a5 04800128

And in Sheet2 - Column A and B has these values

Code
a1 04800128
a2 04800128
a3 04805555
a4 04800128
a5 04800128

Status
b1 Y
b2 Y
b3 Y
b4 Y
b5 N

I need to count in sheet1, where the code of sheet1 will be matched with sheet2 code and its status should be equal to "Y" .. I do not want to hard code these values as I have a huge data.

## Multiple Instances Of A Name?

Jan 13, 2013

I have a large dataset with a company name in Column A and a Town in Column B, e.g.

ABC Company London
ABC Company London
XYX Company Swindon
STJ Company Bristol
STJ Company Bristol
STJ Company Bristol
DEF Company London
DEF Company London
DEF Company London

and I need to identify every instance where the same town appears for each instance of each individual company and add in Column C incrememnt the town name, so the above should end up looking like this:

ABC Company London London
ABC Company London London-1
XYX Company Swindon Swindon
STJ Company Bristol Bristol
STJ Company Bristol Bristol-1
STJ Company Bristol Bristol-2
DEF Company London London
DEF Company London London-1
DEF Company London London-2

I'm thinking I need to use some sort of lookup, but because of the volume of the instances of each company I have no idea how many instance appear in the data set. How could I go about achieving this and incrementing the town names in Column C automatically for each instance?

## How To Count Rows With Defined Values In Multiple Columns

Nov 7, 2005

I need a formula or function that will sum the number of occurences a
specific text string is entered into cells in column B. I only want to count
the occurences when a number that is in column A (on the same row as the
text) is equal to a specific number. Sounds easy but it's very frustrating.
