# Count/Sum Unique Values/Entries

May 9, 2008

Can DCOUNTA be used to only count unique values?

If the above is not possible how would I do the following:

Criteria

Column H = text1 AND Column B date is between date1 & date2

Count unique values in column C

## Count By Unique Entries

Feb 24, 2007

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 With Criteria?

Dec 3, 2012

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.

## Count Unique Entries Within Variable Date Range ..

Apr 27, 2009

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.

## Count Unique Entries In One Column That Meet Conditions

Jan 17, 2010

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
martinm

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: ...

## Count Of Unique Entries As The Subtotal Of A Pivot Table

Jan 28, 2010

## 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?

## Count Unique Entries Within Variable Date Range

Jan 26, 2008

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)?

## Count Unique Text Entries Given A Certain Condition In A Separate Range?

Aug 11, 2014

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.

## Count Unique Values In Column Based On Values In Other Columns

Mar 14, 2014

I'm running into an issue trying to calculate unique values in a Data column based on a few variables in other columns.

My current formula in Summary tab D4:D19 is
{=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(Data!\$I\$3:\$I\$66<\$E\$1,IF(Data!\$A\$3:\$A\$66=\$H\$1,
IF(Data!\$C\$3:\$C\$66=A4,ROW(Data!\$I\$3:\$I\$66)))),ROW(Data!\$I\$3:\$I\$66)),1))
+
SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(Data!\$I\$3:\$I\$66<\$E\$1,IF(Data!\$A\$3:\$A\$66=\$I\$1,
IF(Data!\$C\$3:\$C\$66=A4,ROW(Data!\$I\$3:\$I\$66)))),ROW(Data!\$I\$3:\$I\$66)),1))}

This is currently counting the number of times a date value (data column I) appears for that name (A4:A19) in the data when meeting all of the conditions. I need it to instead count the number of times a unique date appears for that name with the additional conditions met (which all appear to work fine).

The results in the pink highlighted cells (Summary column D) should be:

Names starting with A - 3
All others - 2

I've left some other columns in the data with X's so that I can easily convert this back to my working spreadsheet.

## How To Count Only Unique Values

Jul 24, 2014

I'm working with a data set (attached) that tracks financials at both the job and item level (in my customer's data - a unique job can be made up of a single or multiple items).

I've successfully built a formula (in column C of the attached) that counts the total number of items and their associated \$ values that were invoiced in a given month based on my customer's requested item-type categorizations (i.e. "Exact Match", "Similar", "Inferred", "Cost-Plus").

The problem I'm running into is building a formula that counts the first unique instance of the Job ID associated with those items. For example - in cell C33 on the attached - The total number of items invoiced in June that were "Exact Match" was 10. These items were spread across 9 unique jobs - and that's where I'm struggling - to build a formula that only counts the first unique instance of the corresponding Job ID in Column C.

The formula I'm having trouble with is located in Cell D12 on the "Dashboard" tab of the attached.

The formula as I have it is returning a result of 8 - because it's summing the "1"'s in Column I on my "Invoice Data" tab - however it should read 9 (Filter Column Q on the "Invoice Data" tab to "June", Filter Column AQ on the "Invoice Data" tab to "Exact Match", and then sum the unique job IDs in Column C).

## Count Unique Values Between Two Dates?

Nov 19, 2013

I want to count the unique values between 2 dates. He only needs to count the values that match 2 criteria. I want to know how many unique orders were place between 01/10/2012 and 30/09/2013.

In my Data sheet:
Colomn X: Customer name
Colomn D: Status
Colomn AH: Date of order (Day/Month/Year)

I want to count the unique values in Colomn O: Ordernumbers

This is what I already have:

=SUM(--(FREQUENCY(IF(Data!\$X:\$X=\$A4;IF(Data!\$D:\$D="BOOKED";Data!\$O:\$O));Data!\$O:\$O)>0))

This formula is working. He counts the unique values in colomn O that meet the 2 criteria (Status = "BOOKED"; Customer = A4).

But I don't know how the add the date range in this formula. I want him to take only the values that are between 01/10/2012 and 30/09/2013.
