Count Occurrences In Worksheet Based On Data In Another Cell

Mar 14, 2014

I have my workbook set up so that one worksheet contains the names of all my departments/sections listed with their 3 letter code (this can be anything from AAA-ZZZ, e.g 'FYH', 'JWK' or 'KZA' are all valid) in Column F. I then have Columns H, I, J & K blank and require them to be auto-filling based on data from 4 other worksheets - i'll detail what i need below, but Column H needs to be filled based on what it finds in worksheet 'Data 1', Column I should be filled based on what it finds in worksheet 'Data 2' etc. etc. I have four further worksheets that contain data based on the types of assets owned by the department/section, these are 'Data 1', 'Data 2', 'Data 3' and 'Data 4' and I use these as described above, with Column H referring only to 'Data 1', Column I only to 'Data 2', Column J only to 'Data 3' and Column K only to 'Data 4'.

What i need then, is a VBA that will take the value of a cell in column F on my main worksheet (called 'main') and then count the number of occurences of that value in Coulumn A on another worksheet and place the number of occurences into Column H, I, J or K based on which sheet it's checking.

For example, Cell 'F2' on my main worksheet contains the value "ABC". I need to take "ABC" and search Column A of worksheet "Data 1" to find how many time it occurs, placing the result into Column H of worksheet 'Main', I then need the same value to be counted in Column A of 'Data 2' and its result placed into Column I on 'Main', and again for Column A of 'Data 3' with the result being put into Column J of 'Main', and finally Column A of 'Data 4' to be checked and that result placed into Column K on 'Main'.

does this seem too much of a task for VBA? or am i best doing each column separately with a CountIf or Array formula?? Not sure whether a COUNTIF or Array formula will do the job.

I am working on a spreadsheet that will provide count of types of complaints for particular areas over a running time span. I have tried a multitude of formulas but not sure how to write any of them correctly. What I am trying to do is generate a count of area type by whether it is formal or informal. (i.e. I want to know if there are x formal finish issues vs. y informal finish issues and so on.) This information will get charted and be kept "real-time" user input.

I get this work a lot and am looking for a much more effective way of working the dataset,

I have numbers like 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and so on....... These come under criteria like (1) = 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and so on.....

I am look for an automated way of doing a count of any number that falls under this criteria, so I want to count based on criteria (1) it would count all 1.1,1.2,1.3 and so on as one count.

I am attaching a sample document to see how it is laid out. [URL] .....

I've got two columns, one with policy numbers, the other with error codes.

A policy could be in the list more than once, so I'm counting the number of unique policy numbers with the function

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(A10:F10000,A10:A10000)>0,1))

I want to count the number of errors that are NOT code 00 or code 21. Because the error codes are saved as text, I'm counting the number of errors with

The problem is that since a policy number could be listed twice, when I count the errors, I might be counting the same policy as an error twice. This means that I could feasibly end up with more errors than I have unique policies, which doesn't work.

What I'd like to do is only count the number of errors that have unique policy numbers. That is, I only want to count an error the first time it is in the list, based off it's policy number. Is that possible?

I have been trying the whole day to create a formula to solve this but I just can't get it. To make it simple, let's say I have column A filled with different people names, column B filled with Level of Complexity and column C with the Activity (work task) title. This table is fed dynamically, so the number of rows can vary from 2 to 2000.

What I want to do is count how many times a single name appears related to the same complexity, so I can tell how many "simple, medium or complex" tasks each person has in their work queue.

A simple table example would be: colA colB colC Dan Complex Build House Dan Complex Build Shopping center Dan Simple Take dog to walk Jose Simple Clean desk Maria Medium Paint office roof

Then, on another cell I'd like to have a formula automatically telling me that Dan has 2 Complex tasks and 1 Simple, and so on - considering number rows is not a fixed number. What I have so far is this: =SUMPRODUCT((Data!$I$2:$I$457="Dan")*(Data!$L$2:$L$457="Complex")) But I need to tell a specific last row, and if the data worksheet gets updated with less data (say 450 rows) the formula breaks...

I am trying to count the number of unique entries in a sheet, that also satisfy 2 other conditions.

I've attached an example sheet : Example email report.xlsx

The result I need is: The number of unique values in column E, that also have NULL in column G and NULL in column I.

So, in the example, the result would be 7.

I know I can do this by conditional formatting and filtering, but would prefer a formula, and perhaps also a macro that I could apply as the number of rows in each sheet is up to 20000, and each month's sheet will be a different size.

I'm working on spreadsheet where I have to match the data on two columns, and then count how many times that same number appears on both columns (see below table) In this below sample, I should get total of 3. (23654 , 12345 and 57963).

I would like to design a macro that can find a value within a cell in a colunm and copy a value in the row then count occurances of that value next time a match in the colunm is found on a different row, but also do this only if the date range in the row is within a specified range. So a multi-critieria search and copy operation.

To explain a little better here is a simplified example of my spread sheet that is in input for the macro.

A B C D E

1 PART NO. date in date out comp1 comp2[code]......

Column A lists the coponents found on the same row as the seach critria, in this example "12-3".

Column B lists the number of occurances of the components. This search is limited to a date range input by the user.

So what I can see is the components replaced and the amount of times replaced on a specific item over a fixed time.

*It is difficult to describe this problem without showing the macro output, but this is just an example for the purpose of explanation.

I know a bit of VBA programming and initially I started with an input box that asks for the part number and limit dates.

The table, which works correctly, looks in another worksheet 'Report' for 'Example 1' within the date range of August. This uses COUNTIFS.

Ideally, what I'm wanting to do is have an auto-filter on each of the cells - 'Example 1', 'Example 2', so if a user wants to see what rows on the 'Report' sheet, falls into this criteria, it auto filters the other worksheet, and takes them too it.

The action would be - Click on the cell of 'Example 1', the macro auto-filters based on the cells value in column F of the 'Report' sheet, and takes the user there. The macro would have to take into account the date filter as well, which uses cells A1,B1 for August, and C1,D1, for September.

I've set up a trial sample register to monitor progress.

Column A contains date of receipt Column B contains data of report Column C contains deadline Column D contains a formula to indicate whether the deadline was achieved, or force the cell to be blank if no date was entered, =IF(C2="","",IF(C2>=B2,"Yes","No"))

Columns E to P contain other information.

So far ok.

I want to create a summary by month., giving the number of samples received each month, which I did by extracting the month from column A =month(A2), but i also want the number which met the deadline.

I have a somewhat large spreadsheet that is imported from an AS/400 database which shows the number of times something is being used. It lists the object in a row for each use. For instance, if the object is being used 4 times, there would be four rows of this object's name as well as a 0, 1, 2, 3 next to the correct row. Where it is being used is listed in the H Column.

I'm just trying to count the number of times each object is used and where it is used and list it out in another worksheet. Like this:

Object 1, 4 uses, Place 1 2 3 and 4.

Can someone point me in the right direction in terms of where to start with this? I don't mind giving it a shot in terms of the coding but I'm somewhat at a loss in terms of the general "how to".

I have a table of values, each of which can occur multiple times on multiple rows. I need to figure out the maximum number of times a specific value appears in a row. I could do it quite easily with VBA, running countif on each row and tracking the maximum, but I would like to do it with builtin formulae if at all possibl

I have a small sample sheet attached..I need a formula in column c which identifies how often the name in column B hass occurred already in the sheet. Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;File attached

Iam doing a market report for real estate. I have attached a file for reference. I am trying to track the Active Listings within a given time period and within a specific zip code. Unfortunately my local MLS does not track historical data on Active Listings, and therefore I have to use the Listing Date and the date it no longer went active to determine which listings were active in a given time period. Some of the listings are still active and therefore do not have a "No Longer Active" date. These listings will need to be counted as well.

In a datafile I have one column containing a trip 'origin' and a second column contains 'destinations'. I want to count how many times each trip occurs (so the same origin/destination pair). This is doable using COUNTIFS but unfortunately respondents did not provide consequent origins and destinations. I encountered the following formulations

Since the format is different among and within respondents functions containing LEFT, RIGHT, MID are not useful (at least, my trials did fail). I found a VBA-script for a FUZZYVLOOKUP which sounded promising. Unfortunately the data is stored on a remote PC without VBA on it.

Is there a way to count the occurrences of trips given the circumstances?

I have an excel spreadsheet to record employee holiday and sickness figures.

It is set on as a grid e.g. column A stores all the dates and then employee names are used as column header.

One of the triggers I need to use is where, an employee has been absent 28 consecutive days. When an employee is absent I simply enter 'ABSENT' against there name.

Countif will count the number of time absent appears in the column however I need it to only recognise it if it is only 28 days in a row.

Col A contains a list of random dates going back 1 year in this format 12-Oct-11. These dates are the dates of events. The events are coded into 5 areas in col B with a,b,c,d & e representing each typy of event.

I would like to look at the last 3 months of data taken from Col A and count how many events occured in that time period.

What I want is in column B to give the sequential count that each number is for that number. In other words in row one the number 4 appears for the first time and so the sequence number is 1. It next appears in row 4, so the sequence number there is 2, and for row 6, it is 3.

The completed table will look like this:

A B 4 1 3 1 5 1 4 2 3 2 4 3

Any formula for the cells in column B? My actual list is about 5,000 lines and so I need a formula that is not slow.

In need checking if a particular ID number is repeated more than once in column B. I need to write a formula in each cells of "No.of Repetition" column or Column C to check if respective ID number in column B is repeated more than once and display the count or display a condition true or false.

Look at 2 columns and assess if certain criteria and then count the number of these certain criteria. I give an example below:

Column 1: Has a drop down box of possibilities from: "Red", "Amber", "Green", N/A

Column 2: Has a drop down box of possible choices of: "Significant", "Other".

What I would like to do is have a formula which will count the number of times you have "Red and Significant", "Red and Other", "Amber and Significant", "Amber and Other", "Green and Significant", "Green and Other" and "N/A and Significant" and "N/A and Other".

I am working on a spreadsheet that tracks employee attendence and I am hoping there is a formula that can count the number of occurrences (see below) not the number of incidents (total number of times it comes up).

I am trying to find out if Sumproduct or Countif will provide me the answer but in vain. In the example of the 2 columns of data, how do I find out the number of one-time (or unique) combined occurences for data in column A and B? In my example the answer should be 5. I do not how to proceed with my Sumproduct formula which gives error. =SUMPRODUCT(($A$1:$A$17="A122")*$B$1:$B$17)

I need to count the number of occurrences of a range of dates in one column. These are not unique dates, but dates between two date periods i.e. number of dates falling between 02/07/07 and 09/07/07. I have tried using the COUNTIFS function and inserting the column range (e.g. B7-B57) and then searching for dates <=02/07/07. However, what I need is to search for the number of times any date in a given period occurs i.e. number of 03/07/07s in a period from 02/07/07 to 09/07/07.

I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet consisting of many worksheets (20 or so). Each of these worksheets contain detail level data regarding different projects. One of the columns in these worksheets is the 'Status' column (column F). There is conditional formatting on this column where if the text is 'G' then change background to a green color, 'Y'=yellow, 'R'=Red and 'U'=Grey.

The first worksheet is a summary sheet that I would like to pull information from each of the detail worksheet's columns B, D, E, G and H if the status column (Column F) is 'R' or 'Y'.

The number of rows in the detail worksheet can change each week (as few as 0 and as many as 100)

I created a sort of FORM worksheet that uses lookups to pull a bunch of information (so the user does not have to key it all in,) and transfers it to a second worksheet (database worksheet), when the user clicks a "Submit" button.

The functionality is fine when used by one individual, but I am now going to have 9 different users working within this Shared file.

I seem to have worked out any of the other kinks related to the Shared file, but I'm having one problem that I should have foreseen.

The code below is looking for the next available empty row in the database sheet and copying the data there.

My problem is that the file is not updated in real-time, so if entries are submitted in a narrow time-frame, the data is fighting for the same row, and deleting one row-item or another.

My question is, is there a way to modify what I already wrote to fix this problem?

If not--the solution that I am thinking of is creating NINE separate worksheets and mapping the data into those individualy.

So... IF we have Sally, John, Scott, Dave, Jenn They each have their own worksheet.

From looking at the below, I am thinking the best option would be obviously mirroring the template for each user, and modifying this portion:

VB:

Option Explicit [U]Dim wsData As Worksheet [/U]Dim wsForm As Worksheet Dim wsPCD As Worksheet Dim rNextCl As Range Dim rNextC2 As Range

[Code]....

Will that work transitioning into the rest of the code? I'll assume that the above needs revised as I'm new to this all.

VB:

Option Explicit Dim wsData As Worksheet Dim wsForm As Worksheet Dim wsPCD As Worksheet Dim rNextCl As Range Dim rNextC2 As Range

In Sheet1 I've got a list of names in column A, then I've got a worksheet for each name in the list. I'd like to fill in column B with information from the worksheet of the same name as in column A.

Quick example...name in column A is Davis, want to fill in column B with a value from cell C3 on worksheet named Davis and do it for the entire list. Data being looked for is in same cell on each worksheet. Tried using a formula and dragging it down the list, problem with that is it doesn't change the sheetname just the cell.

I have a spreadsheet with 6 months of data in one row. the dates are from A3 (Jan 1) to FY3 (Jun 30). The data is in range A4:FY4. The data is a "$" (without quotes). The $'s are entered randomly during the 6 month period. I need a formula to determine the days between the last occurrence and the next to last occurrence of the $. Example spreadsheet shows the $'s on Mar 28 and May 5 as the last two. The spreadsheet is attached. I am using Microsoft Office Excel 2010.
