# Count Number Of Rows With Unique Entries In 2 Columns

Oct 9, 2006
I have a spreadsheet which is to record quality checks on work carried out by staff. The spreadsheet has a customer reference number in column B and a Staff reference number in column C.

I can carry out a number of checks on a member of staff on one transaction, so for instance, I could carry 3 checks on one customer number, which would result in the staff ref number being enetered 3 times (there is 1 check per row).

I need a formula to count the number of checks I carry out on each member of staff. My problem is that although 3 checks could be completed on someone, if it is on the same customer NO, it only counts as 1 check. In effect, I need a formula to count the number of staff ref numbers which have a unique customer number eneterd in the adjacent column.

All the cust numbers are unique so would I be able to use a wildcard?

I have 7 columns x 3 rows with unique numbers. I wish to determine every combination of the above numbers without repeats.

5

11

17

24

29

35

40

[Code] ........

Column 1 would only use column 1 numbers.

Column 2 would only use column 2 numbers...etc.

Also have the same for 5 rows of unique numbers.

I've been working on this for 10 years and this is the last step to finalizing the WINNING numbers.

Back checking using the 5 row technique I would have spent 10,000,000.00 playing over 8 years with a winners purse of 33,000,000.00

With the 3 row I would have spent close to 200k and won 2.5 mil.

Only problem is that I don't have the 10 to start with, the 200k is a maybe .

I need to be able to generate the combinations to play the numbers.

I have several columns in an excel sheet which contain values (eg. Names). The entered names can be unique or already exist in the column. I need to find out (using a function or macro) how many different names were entered. Duplicates shshould be ignored in the count.

I am hoping this can be done with formulae. Starting at C7 and continuing down the C column there is a list of names which could potentially run from C7 to C5000. This list of names will contain duplicates. For each name there is a corresponding 'reason' in the F column which will contain the word 'Truancy' or 'Late'.

I need a formula that can count the number of UNIQUE names in the C column which correspond to the word 'Truancy' or 'Late' in the E column.

An example,

[Name].....................[Reason]

C7 ...........................E7

John Potts.................Truancy 2

Matt Jones................Truancy 10

John Potts.................Truancy 4

Matt Jones ...............Late AM

Pete Burns................Late PM

Pete Burns ...............Late Both

Steve Lopez..............Truancy 6

Count of unique names with the word Truancy in the corresponding E column = 3 [John Potts has 2 instances of the word truancy in column E but this is only counted once]

Count of unique name with the Word Late in the corresponding E column = 2 [Pete Burns has 2 instances of the word late in the E column but this is only counted once].

I have also included a sample workbook.

Count unique entries in a column according to two specified criteria.Specifically, I am trying to count the number of days in a month a supplier has a visited.Below is an example taken from the excel:

COLUMN A COLUMN B

Date Supplier

01-ago-12 Mr X

01-ago-12 Mr X

01-ago-12 Mr X

I want a formula that allows me to see how different dates Mr X has visited in each month. So in August he has visited 8 times BUT only on 5 different dates.

In the case of Mr Y I want the formula to give the answer 5 (even though he has visited 6 times in total, he has visited on only 5 different dates).

In the case of Mr X in September, the answer to the formula would be 2, since has visited on 2 different dates in September.

I've been struggling for hours on what should be a simple formula. I have 6 columns containing various dates. On each row I want to count of the 6 columns how many dates were unique and after 3/15/09. I've been using the following formula however it still counts a cell even if it's prior to 3/15/09. =SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(A1:F1,A1:F1)>3/15/2009,1,0)). I've attached a sample file for reference.

I tried to ask this question yesterday -- but it was a follow-up question stuck at the bottom of a thread. So, with your indulgence, here is a simpler version of the question, complete with an attached spreadsheet, if you wish to use it. I also closed the other thread by marking it "Solved", since it answered my initial question.]

The situation:

I have two columns of data. The data is not in alphabetical order, and every column includes duplicate values.

namegender

jones m

martinf

smithf

collinsf

wilsonm

jones m

martinf

hughesm

wilsonm

martinm

smithf

west f

jones m

west f

The challenge:

In one cell, count the number of unique names that appear in the name column 3 or more times... with the additional condition that each unique name (which appears at least 3 times) must include at least one one woman!

The correct result: ...

Using the DCOUNT function is generally a straight forward proposition but I'm not getting the expected results and would like for someone to take a look and help me understand why.

Goal: create a count of unique entries within a defined variable date range

I have a data table with duplicate values and need to count unique entries, the result of which will be used in a calculation. Due to a requirement to track the counts in a rolling 30-day period, the flexibility of daily selecting the date ranges is a necessity, which is why I chose to use DCOUNT and feed dates into the criteria cells.

I've been attempting to use the DCOUNT function but I'm not getting the correct result.

Oddly, after duplicating the table and formula on the "Count Repeated Items Once" page, even those results are incorrect.

It seems, too, that COUNTIF does not like (accept) dynamic named ranges. Hard coding the range into the formula yields a result of TRUE, but using a dynamic named range gives FALSE. Anyone else experience this and is there a work around (that is, if I have not erred in its use)?

I need to count the number of unique text values in the first column given a condition in the 2nd column. For example, the formula that I'm looking for should give a result of "3" because it is an SME, and there are 3 unique companies that are classified as SMEs.

Company Name

Company Type

Company A

SME

Company B

SME

(I cant seem to make the tables visible but Company A and Company D right below the header should be in one cell) This should still yield a value of "3" despite having Company A and D in the same cell.

I have 620 columns of data with each column consisting of 17 rows. I need to be able to count the number of unique entries in each column. I recorded a macro that would do what I wanted, but it just used absolute references for each column, which would make the process rather tedious. Is there a way to make the macro less restrictive?

Sub Macro1()

Columns("B:B").Select

ActiveSheet.Range("$B$1:$B$17").RemoveDuplicates Columns:=1, Header:=xlNo

End Sub

I have been using the wrong formula to count total entries in columns and only just found this error. The MAX formula in cell B4 is: =MAX($B$12:$B$36). If the all the rows are full within range F12:F36, then the MAX formula is fine to count the total within range B12:B36 (25) so I thought. But sometimes there are omissions between F12:F36. If there are 2 blank cells anywhere within F12:F36 for example, then B4 needs to show 23 respectively. In the sample WkBk B4 needs to show 8

I have two columns in Excel.

I want to compare the two columns and pull out the unique entries.

So any entries that are in both column 1 and column 2 I don't want anymore.

I just want all the entries that are NOT IN BOTH columns.

In that file, you can see there is a list of somewhat similar data across 5 columns. Some of the entries are duplicates, some are different by only one character. What I want to be able to do is generate a list of all the unique rows of data, taking into account the data from ALL 5 columns. The list can be on another sheet or simply just further down on the same sheet, that doesn't matter too much.

I could do it if it were just one column of data, but struggling trying to do it with several columns.

Columns A & B contain several thousand Project Numbers (e.g., P1052, PA844, etc.). Many of the Project Numbers in column B are the same as in column A, but column B also has additional (i.e., newer) Project Numbers scattered throughout. Ideally, I would like to use a built-in function (versus a custom function if possible) that compares all the Project Numbers in both columns and then separately lists those that are unique to column B.

I have a list of ID's, many of which appear several times. Is there a formula that will give me the number of different ID's? That is:

CON001

CON100

CON050

CON001

the formula would give the answer "3" for 3 different numbers in the 4 total numbers.

I have a list of words in one column, some of which feature more than once, in random order, i.e.:

Bird

Plane

Superman

Superman

Plane

Superman

Bird

Plane

I want to have a function that counts the number of times each word appears, so in the cell next to each entry for "Superman" it would say 3, for "Bird" 2 etc. If I add another "Superman" it should then change to 4 next to each entry. Also, I will be adding new words all the time, so the function needs to be able to cope with that too.

I'm trying to Count the number of Entries on a Sheet that match an Hour. Looking through the availiable functions i found COUNTIFS, which is exactly what I want. However, when I try to compare the Hour values within the COUNTIFS arguments, there is an error.

This is the function that I figured would work here:

=COUNTIFS(HOUR(Sheet1!G:G), HOUR(E6))

which should count all entries in column G where its HOUR matches the HOUR in E6 (all are time format). I do realize that in the example above there is only one comparison made and i'm using COUNTIFS instead of COUNTIF, but i'll be adding other comparisons to it once i get this first comparison working.

I have a column that is filled with different names. Some names appear more than once. There is one name in fact that appears four times.

I am looking for a formula, or VBA if that's necessary, that will look through the range Y2:Y50, and return a value of 4, because the person that has the most duplicates, her name appears 4 times.

If everyone's name appeared only once, except for a person whose name was in that range twice, then the formula would return a 2.

I need a one formula solution to compare two columns for duplicates and count the number of matched pairs. Need to ingore blanks. Can have matched numbers or letters. Asterik denotes a blank (empty) cell. Also only consider the first matched pair if there are more than one matched pairs.

Col A Col B

a

b a

* b

c c

d y

x f

f z

f z

In this case I only want to consider a:a, b:b, c:c and f:f, resulting in the count of 4.
