Count Number Of Equal Cells With A Prefix In Col D And Insert Count In Col A?

Aug 7, 2013

I need to count the number of equal cells in col D beginning at the top of the column. The counted cells must begin with a text prefix of "Category:" without the quotes.

Some but not all of the cells in col D begin with a prefix of "Category:" without the quotes, followed by a word or words following the word "Category:" See examples below. All of the terms prefixed with "Category:" in col D are in alphabetical order. I need to count the number of identical cells in col D with the "Category:" prefix.

Examples of the contents of cells in col D with the "Category:" prefix are as follows:

Cells above and below cells with a prefix of "Category:" in col D are not adjacent.Cells above and below cells with a prefix of "Category:" in col D are separated by 3 to an undermined number of rows.

I need to count the number of equal cells in col D and insert the count in col A at the last equal term. For example, col A above would have 93, 1, 1, 5, 10, 8, 3, and 12 inserted into col A.

I'm looking at test results and would like to know how many times in a row correct answers were given before getting one incorrect. The way I have this currently set up, is if a student has the answer correct it returns a "TRUE" value, and a "FALSE" value for an incorrect answer. A typical test may have 50 questions, so I would have either "TRUE" or "FALSE" values in rows A1 through A50.

So I've been trying to figure out a formula that counts the number of times "TRUE" rows repeat 'consecutively' in a given column, in this scenario column A. The formula would need to check the current row and if "TRUE" check the row immediately after, if that row is also "TRUE" then check the row immediately after that, until it runs into a "FALSE" string, then display that total count of consecutive "TRUES" in another cell. I understand there may be duplicate results but I'm only really interested in the longest value, so duplicates can be ignored.

If it makes the formula easier, each possible result can be assigned to it's own cell. Let's assume the test has 50 questions. So if a student got all 50 questions correct the result count would be 50 in cell B50, or if they got 25 correct before the first incorrect answer, cell B25 would say 25, etc. I'm guessing I could then easily query this column for the largest value to come up with what I need at a glance.

going down are stores a, b, c, d.... what i'm filing in across is the square feet of each store and what quartr or year each store came into place. so there will either be a 0 or a number Now, I want to be able to count the number of nhew stores each quarter. how do i create a formula that just recognizes it the first time there is a number and not a zero... because i will put the square feet in subsequent quarters after it opens so i can see yearly how many square feet the store had. then also, how can create a button on the page that will say quarterly numbers and a button that is annual. so that i can hide the quarterly columns and just see an annual spreadsheet... and for the quarterly button so i can hide the annuals and just see the quarters....

Create some sort of formula combination or macro that will: Recognise a cell with a value of 1, 2 or 3 in. If 3 is in the cell, the cell to its left will be counted and added to a total. If the cell that has 3 in changes the value is removed from the total. Ive tried lots of methods but i cant figure this one out!

i need a formula to count the number of cells in a column that HAVE a specific value (for example 1123). I tried the COUNT and COUNTIF function but it counts all the cell that CONTAIN the number 1123, i just need the cells that are EQUAL to 1123.

Column A has current building, column b has future building. Would like to count the number of changes without adding a separate column with an if statement.

I believe I need a loop code to do what I need, because none of the functions I've tried have worked. I want to start at B2 and go down the column until I come to a YES. When I find a YES, I want to know the number of NOs that preceded it. Then I want to go from that YES(#1) to the next YES(#2) and count the number of NOs between YES(#1) and YES(#2) and so forth, until I run out of rows. For example, in C5, the answer is 2, because there are 2 NOs between YES#1 and YES#2 in coulmn B, and a 1 in C7, because there is 1 NO between YES(#2) and YES(#3) in column B.

I'm creating an Excel sheet with statistics for a yearly salary review.

In the document that the managers will fill in there is a column for the employees performance (+, = or -).

I want to use this to compare how much salary raise employees has gotten depending on their performance rating. This is all fin with the + and - just using the regular countifs formula, but when it comes to the = Excel refuses to count them?

I'm trying to count all cells in a row after the last number that was greater than 0. See my example spreadsheet. I have put the answers that it should be in to show what I'm after.

I receive spreadsheets which tell me where samples are located in 96 well plates. The plates' rows are lettered A-H, and the columns are numbered 1-12. So, for example, the first well is labeled A1, the 12th is A12, the 13th is B1, and the 96th is labeled H12.

When I receive the spreadsheets, there are cells that tell me which wells are occupied. For example a cell will contain "A2 - B7" or "D3-F12" (sometimes with the spaces before and after the "-", and sometimes not." I need a program that will tell me that "A2-B7" (or "A2 - B7") means there are 18 wells occupied.

I've tried a few things, but a lot of problems arise when I try to do anything with names like "A1" because excel already defines "A1" as cell A1. Do you guys have any ideas? Am I being clear?

A B C D DATE EMPL1 EMPL2 EMPL3 3/6 NO NO YES 3/5 YES NO NO 3/4 YES YES NO 3/3 NO NO YES

I have a list of dates in column A, and a list of employees who either did or did not make a sale on that date in columns B thru D. What I want to do is automatically count the number of days between their sales for a 6 month period.

I am trying to combine 2 counting functions to count the number of rows that a certain value in 2 different columns. I think the 2 formulae I am trying to combine are:

=COUNTIF(N3:N136,-1) =COUNTIF(X3:X136,1)

i.e. the number of rows that have both "-1" in column N and "1" in column X

I received this code and formula from this board some time ago. My question is, how do i edit the code (and or formula) so it will count any color i choose? (red,green,yellow,etc.)

Here is the code;

Function CountColor(Rng As Range, RngColor As Range) As Integer Dim Cll As Range Dim Clr As Long Clr = RngColor.Range("A1:a100").Interior.Color For Each Cll In Rng If Cll.Interior.Color = Clr Then CountColor = CountColor + 1 End If Next Cll End Function

Once i enter this code in a new module, i use the following formula to get my answer on number of colored cells;

I know the formula =LEN(A1) to get the number of characters within a cell - however is there a way to count the number of cells within a range that have a length > X (lets say 50).

I'm trying to develop a new daily timesheet for my production workers, where non-production items are recorded in 15 minute intervals. The user would put in "Clock in" by the corresponding time, and the same for "Clock out" at the end of the day. Any non-production items will be type in next to their appropriate time. Since clock in and clock out times will vary, I need to set up a formula that searches the array of cells for the day, finds the "Clock in" and "Clock out" values, and counts any blank cells in between them. Basically the blank cells will equal production time, and the result of the Count function will be multiplied by 0.25 to get the hours.

I am having a very difficult time finding a way to set the "Clock in" and "Clock out" cells as the range for the Count function, because it won't always be the same cells. What would be the best way to automatically have excel find the cells containing these values and set them as the range criteria for a Count function?

The formula at the bottom was one of my initial attempts, but it didn't work. I took out the '=' for the screenshot, so that wasn't the problem.
