# Count Unique Results: Function &lt;&gt; Filter

Dec 27, 2007

Data: four variables A,B,C and D from A2:D6000

I want a count of unique D values
when A=xxx
and B=yyy
and C=zzz

I have named the A,B,C,D ranges as RangeA, RangeB, RangeC, RangeD

I have used the function

=SUM((RangeA="xxx")*
(RangeB="yyy")*
(RangeC="zzz")*

But what do I use to count-unique values of variable D ?

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(RangeD,RangeD)>0,1)) doesn't work.
=SUM(1/COUNTIF(RangeD,RangeD&"")) doesn't work either

They don't work because D can occur during different combinations of A,B and C. In other words, the D value of 'Smith' can, and does, occur when A is 1,2 or 3 and additionally when B is Pass, Fail, Withdrawn.

They "don't work" because I can use filters on A, B, C and D to see what the correct answer should be .. and the function doesn't return the correct answer.

I hope I've explained this ok - I've been searching on several excel-help websites for 2 days now and one of the days my client is going to want some results.

## Filter Function Not Returning Correct Results In The Code?

Mar 20, 2013

In an excel sheet, I am using a macro to filter. Macro code is as follows. When I run this macro, it returns 4 rows matching the criteria from 560 rows in the excel sheet.

VB:
ActiveSheet.Range("\$A\$1:\$I\$566").AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:= _
">=11/11/2012 22:13", Operator:=xlAnd, Criteria2:="<=11/12/2012 6:47"

I want to use the same criteria in the vb.net code, to do same thru vb.net. But, when I run the same code in vb.net, it just returns only 1 row (1st row only).

VB:
[FONT=Consolas][SIZE=2][COLOR=#0000ff]xlsRange1.AutoFilter(Field:=1, Criteria1:=">=11/11/2012 22:13", Operator:=Excel.XlAutoFilterOperator.xlAnd, Criteria1:="<=11/12/2012 6:47")

This returns 1 instead of 4 expected.

## Filter And Count Unique Values In Single Formula?

Mar 18, 2014

I need to count the unique items in a range that don't contain the string "option". I would like not to use VBA for that but I can't make it work with a simple formula.

For now, I have :

[Code] ......

That doesn't count the cell with the content "option" and count correctly the other unique items. However I need to ignore any cell that contains the string "option" (with wildcards).

## Index / Match Function To Count Criteria Results Once?

I've been trying to edit my index formula to only count an order number once even if the criteria for that result appear more than once. Attachment 324723

## Count Unique Text Cells Ending In X - Function Only

Nov 15, 2013

I have some data in a column, starting at row 6 that I'd like to find the number of unique text values for. For this I have been using this formula

Code:
{=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(LEN(A6:A10000)>0,MATCH(A6:A10000,A6:A10000,0),""), IF(LEN(A6:A10000)>0,MATCH(A6:A10000,A6:A10000,0),""))>0,1))}

The data is dynamic so I picked an arbitrarily large number (10000) and the above formula successfully ignores blank fields.

However, I'd like to now find the count of unique text values that end in X. For example, let's say the data are as follows

Dog_Cat
Mouse_Dog
Mouse_Cat
Mouse_Cat
Mouse_Cat
Mouse_Mouse
Elephant_Elephant

How would I go about (in one function) finding the unique values that end in "_Cat", in this case 2 ("Mouse_Cat" and "Dog_Cat")?

## Function / Formula In Excel To Count Unique Values Matching Criteria

I have a worksheet. I would like to count unique number of "Trans" in column A only if value of cells in column B "Type" equals "Return". In example below, I would want to see the value "3" as total.

Trans Type
1 Return
2 Return
2 Return
3 Exch
4 Exch
5 Return
5 Return

## Filter With Formula: FILTER A Range And Display The Unique Items, One Below The Other, WITHOUT Blank Cells

How can I FILTER a range and display the unique items, one below the other, WITHOUT blank cells - with only a FORMULA. What I came up with is shown in the attached WB. I would like to present the countries like in C11:C15.

## Filter Results Of Primary Filter Sort

Feb 11, 2008

I am in the process of making a database more efficient and am running into a problem with sorting data. I currently am trying to use AutoFilter to sort the data. When I want to then narrow the results further using the same column as the critical and there is nothing that matches the critical, I get everything from the entire database that matches that critical rather than what I want to see, which, in this case, would be nothing.

I have attached a sample file. In it, when All AF 1000 is run and then Selected MAC 2000 Wash is run, I want to see no results instead of seeing all MAC 2000 Washes from the original data set. I can do it using IF/THEN but I am looking for a faster way to do it.

Jun 14, 2009

Can anyone explain why the unique filter does not produce a unique result - sample attached?

## Count All Unique Values (text) + Definition Of UNIQUE :D

If I have multiple entries with different but repeatable text values in one column - how do I count all unique ones ? Is there a function or does it have to be a pivot table of sth ?

## Filter Not Showing All Results

Feb 19, 2009

I have a very large spreadsheet (almost 9000 rows). I have filters on all columns, however when I click to see all the results for the column under the filter, just to view the contents of the row, some are not there. Does a filter have a limitted amount of rows it can hold.

## How To Filter For Results In TWO Columns

Jan 17, 2013

I have spreadsheet that tracks flights between cities. The spreadsheet has become quite large, so I need a few simple tools or tricks to search it efficiently.

To keep things simple: the spreadsheet has "Departs" and "Arrives" columns, tracking the cities on either end of a flight. (See below)

FlightDepartsTimeArrivesTime
1001New York2:00Boston3:00
1004Washington DC3:00New York4:00
1006Boston4:00Washington DC5:30

If my boss says, "give me a list of all flights going through New York," I have to manually filter for "New York" in the "Departs" column, copy that to another spreadsheet, then filter again for "New York" in the "Arrives" column, and manually glue the results together. In my little toy example, that's not a big deal, but when there are up to a couple hundred flights (and just as many cities), this gets tedious and error-prone.

Is there some handy way of filtering for "New York" in both the "Departs" and "Arrives" columns? Or some other way of achieving the same thing? ("Find All" isn't useful unless I can export the full rows into a spreadsheet.)

## Filter Results In Listbox?

Dec 4, 2013

I have a UserForm with a TextBox and a ListBox

I'd like when I type a last name (for example) and press a button, it filter the results and these results should appear in the Listbox

I have a code that does the same but with numbers (ID, Tlfno number, or other)

## Results Based On Filter

Jun 21, 2006

I have a basic spreadsheet with a column of names of people (Matt, John, Mike), and specific sales numbers for each. I would like to have a cell give an average of the sales numbers based on how I filter for either Matt, John, or Mike individually.

For example: If I filter to see only Matt, I would like to see the average for Matt only, and when I filter to another name such as John, I would like to see the average number change to see only John's.

## Filter Results Using Combobox On Spreadsheet?

Feb 9, 2014

I want to filter my results using a combo box on my spreadsheet. I don't mind how this is done, even if it just hides all of the information which isn't relevant. I've done it with a VLookup but I want to be able to edit it easily without the formula popping up. So if you click Barlcays, only barclays appears. I'd also like a button to reset if possible. I've attached an example of how I sort of want it to work.

## Returning Results Via Filter To Next Sheet

## Search Box That Uses Autofilter To Filter Results Down?

May 14, 2012

I want to create a searchbox in Excel which will locate text in a massive amount of data, for example, if a user types into the box....

"123"

I want the search box to filter the spreadsheet using the autofilter from cell B3, thus filtering out all results that are NOT "123".

Currently I have a button to press which brings up the CTRL + F screen, but that isn't exactly what is required in this instance.

## Summing Totals Of Filter Results

Feb 8, 2007

A friend of mine asked if there is a formula that will add the "Y"'s and "N"'s based off of a filter per certain dates. Below is a brief example.

2/18/2009Y
8/15/2006N
2/18/2009Y
8/15/2006N
4/6/2005 N
4/6/2005 N

We want to be able to sort by dates so regardless of which date we pick, below the Y's and N's will be the total for the Y's and N's that are visible. If sorted by April, it will show 2 N's and 0 Y's, and so on. Is there any formula out there that can do this.

## Filter Database & Output Results

Jun 11, 2008

I'm trying to get certain data from an export of a phone logging report for a call center. I have exported this data into an excel spreadsheet. I would now like to retrieve the following information from the sheet.

'Agent name, Date, time of Login, time of Logout (at end of day).'

I have coloured these fields in red for easy finding. I do not require anything else from this data, however, within this sheet there are multiple agent names and can span for over a month. All names and dates are required. I have attached the current sheet, and also what it will possibly look like once complete. I would prefer the whole process to be automated if possible.

## Auto Filter Very Slow To Return Results

Feb 12, 2009

i have a work book of 12 sheets, the two main sheets 1+2 have 5000+ rows. by 30 columns. each row column b is a site number in ascending order(up to 4 for each site) so auto filter select = to site 5 about 10 seconds later i get the result of 3 sites try site 846 30 odd seconds later up pops the result. so i copied the sheet to a new work book and tried and it's nigh on instantaneous. next step
copied sheet paste special values into new sheet in same original workbook
and tried filter on that still slow as ever, thing is this book around 8meg and i cant for the life of me work out why ive cleared excessive formats and reset last cell on each sheet. there is a vlookup from sheet 1 to 2 for each site to return serial numbers. i have tried it in vba by turning autocal off/on but still no difference.

## Displaying Repeated Advanced Filter Results

Aug 22, 2007

I created a user form that provides a menu that allows users to perform advanced filtering. They can also scroll through the results freely. A problem is that a subsequent advanced filter selection does not always display the top row of filtered records, depending upon what the user has chosen to display prior to selecting the next set of filtered records.

How can I make the top row of filtered records always be displayed so that users will not overlook results of advanced filter operations?

## Paste Values Of Auto Filter Results

Jun 18, 2008

I have the following code that copies only the visible cells in an auto filter...how could I modify this code to paste only the values and not the format?

.Range("b:d,g:r").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Copy Destination:=Sheets("Monthly Hours").Range("A1")

## Returning Advanced Filter Results Into Row Not Range

Jun 7, 2006

I am trying to create an advanced filter that filters my results into a row.

e.g.

Shane
Shane
Tom
Tom
Paul
Mike

would return

Shane Tom Paul Mike

I have tried changing this piece of code

The problem is with

CopyToRange:=Rows("25:25")

I have tried using Range instead of Rows but I am not having any joy.

## Filter Table And Then Copy The Results Onto Another Worksheet

Jan 17, 2007

now i have filtered data in a table, i want to use the results by printing off a table showing just these and the appropriate rows from other tables on worksheets. these all have a specific ID which is how they are traceable to each other. like a related field in an access database. two tables/worksheets are like so:

table1:
Reg No | Rank | Name | Initials | Troop | etc

table 2:
Reg No | JCLM1 | JCLM2 | SCLM1 | SCLM2 | etc

If i were to filter the second table by JCLM1 = YES then i want to create a printable list of all those but also to include the related records from table 1. is this possible?

## Copy Advance Filter Results To Another Sheet

Aug 29, 2007

I recorded a macro to perform an Advanced Filter. I then adapted the range to & LastRow. My question is, can this now be adapted to remove the Select so the sheets are not selected when this is run.

Sheets("CIT Results").Select
Sheets("Open Calls").Range("A1:I" & LastRow).AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterCopy, _
CriteriaRange:=Sheets("Open Calls").Range("N5:V8"), CopyToRange:=Range("Q50"), Unique:=False

Moderators, can you please edit the Thread title. It should be "Advance Filter From and To Non Active Sheet"

## How To Generate Random Numbers In Range 1:20 With Unique Results

Mar 22, 2014

In an earlier life I was tasked with finding a "random" method of selecting two numbers from a "1 to 20" range so that the generated numbers can be applied to an set of people who will be partnered in a golf game draw.

It is only one draw per year so I don't care if the players have previously played together in past years.

easily be modified by a "passable knowledge level" person to be able to select a mystery "9" out of 18 holes that count for scores that particular round.

(btw: this is an issue only for the 20 guys who go away once a year to play golf, the world will not collapse if I have to draw numbers out of a hat, just looking for a slightly more elegant solution and I already have a few scoring macros so my first guess (but not only possibility) is VBA)

## Compare 2 Different Columns Of Data - Find Unique Results

Mar 2, 2007

I would like to compare some keyword lists if possible.

I have a large list of Unique keywords in Col A (From A3),

This Column is called Keyword List A - Large"

I then have a keyword list in Column C (From Cell C3),,

This Column is called "Keyword List B - Small.

I then have a column called "Unique Keywords Found",, This is Col E,, with hopefully returned results being entered from cell E3 downwards.

What I would like to be able to do if possible is run a Macro that would compare all the unique words in ColA and C and return only the difference, (The Unique words not found in ColC as Col A is the "Master List")

If possible could a pop up box appear saying
===================
List A No Rows:xyz
List B No Rows: xyz
No of Uniques Found : xyz
Time Elapsed (sec): xyz
===================

I'm running windows XP and Excel 2007.
