# Count Combinations Across Multiple Columns?

Apr 23, 2013

I need to count how many times a code appears over a 6mth period only on a single day. The data would look something like:-

1/1 2/1 3/1 4/1 5/1 6/1 7/1 8/1 9/1 10/1 etc
a b c a a b a a b b

If counting b the result would be 2 on the above 10 days as it appears on the 9/1 & 10/1 it would not be included. It is to be used to count the number of times somebody only appears on a single day over a period of time but not count them if they come back the next day.

I cant think of a way to do this using in built formulas (Countifs, sumproduct, etc) The example is basic and there could be up to 20 codes.

## Count Quantity Of Unique Combinations Of Multiple Columns

Apr 20, 2014

I have two columns in a spreadsheet, and I need to write a formula to determine how many times each combination shows up. Example:

SKU-A Location1
SKU-A Location1
SKU-A Location2
SKU-B Location1
SKU-B Location7
SKU-B Location7
SKU-B Location8
SKU-B Location8
SKU-B Location8
SKU-B Location8

I want it to have the data converted to be like this (with the third column being the the number of times that combination appears):

SKU-A Location1 2
SKU-A Location2 1
SKU-B Location1 1
SKU-B Location7 2
SKU-B Location8 4

## Count Combinations Of Values In 2 Columns

May 9, 2008

Have a monthly report process in which I need to count to combinations of values in 2 columns. Example:

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

Count results: A&1 = 2, A&2 = 1, etc. I'd like to get a summary table of the results. I see how to use sumproduct to count combinations, but that requires a sumproduct formula for every combination. The 2 colums are lengthy and the contents vary each month, so building the formulas each month will be a fair amount of work. Is there another way?

## Get All Unique Combinations From 6 Columns (multiple Rows) Into 7th Column

Jul 2, 2014

I have a table with 6 columns (A to F) and multiple rows each, with cells containing words. Taking the words in any one cell from each of the columns in order from A to F will form a complete sentence each time. I need a solution to display all unique possible combinations in column G.

The number of rows is different for each column. A successful result in column G has to include cells from all columns (A to F).

I searched this forum and found a few analogous questions/solutions, but nothing close enough for me to apply to my case. I tried using a concatenation formula, but I have to manually edit the formula in each cell to get all unique combinations (and that would mean thousands of times). If I just drag the formula down it will increment all cell rows instead of one cell's row at a time.

Here's an example : all possible unique combinations.jpg

## Return A Count From Multiple Columns - Each Column Has Multiple Answers

Sep 28, 2012

Want a single count of multiple columns based on the columns selected value. Data is in text format.

Have tried multiple COUNTIF statements and have tried using pivot table (Excel 2010) both only give me total counts for all. I think I need an OR statement somewhere, but not sure where?

In other words, if a single record has an "any" in the any fields or a "yes" in the yes fields, I want to to count that as one record.

Sample data:

Pegnancy Smoke
Pregnancy Alcohol
Pregnancy Marijuana
Pregnancy Powder
Stress Cigarettes
Stress Marijuana
Stress Alcohol
Stress Medication

[Code] .....

## Count Number Of Times Text Combinations Appear In Same Column

Oct 6, 2013

A1:A10 contains text (say colors) and B1:B10 also text (say vegetables). I need a formula to count the number of times a certain combination of numbers and vegetables appear in the same column, so if "red" and "carrot" appeared in A4 and B4 and also in A6 and B6, the result would be 2.

## Count Several Items In Multiple Columns?

Feb 25, 2014

I have this work sheet with several formulas in columns Z to AD. All of them highlighted red work fine as for as I can tell. I am stumped with the one needed for the cell highlighted yellow AD2. It should count all the dates in AD1 that are Requested Changes Made and/or Rejected in Column "M". AD2 is a total of today minus 8. Equipment Change out - TEST.xlsx

## Count Multiple Columns And Criteria

Mar 13, 2014

What I'm trying to do count the TRUE values in multiple columns, if the criteria is correct in another column.

I've tried countifs but end up having the company included into the count, or only count the row that matches all the criteria.

If I do =COUNTIFS(A2:A7,"A",B2:B7,"TRUE")+COUNTIF(C2:C7,"TRUE") then I get 5.

When I change it to +COUNTIFS(A2:A7,"A",C2:C7,"TRUE") it works but there's a time where I need to check up to 8 Options.

Company
Option 1
Option 2

a
True
True

b
True
False

c
True
False

a
True
False

a
True
False

b
True
True

## Count Instances In Multiple Columns?

Mar 19, 2013

What I'm trying to do is input a formula in col G which will look for instances of the city named in col F in both cols A and C. This should then return the total of these, from cols B and D that have the letter "F", into col H. Therefore, in the attached example, cell G2 would return "1", G3 would be "0" etc.

Should I be using VLOOKUP or COUNTIF, or maybe a combination of these or something totally different?CityCodeCount.xls

## Count And Sum For Criteria In Multiple Columns

Aug 17, 2007

I am trying to figure out how to create a formula using multiple criteria in different columns. Ideally, I need to use the whole column (i.e. E:E rather than E2:E400) because I don't want to have to update the formula every time I input data.

I will simplify my spreadsheet for example purpose. Basically, column A has a unique identifier that either begins with an "M" or an "R." Column B either contains a person's name or a "-". Column C contains a dollar amount.

1. I need to be able to count all the cells in Column A that begin with an "M" AND have a "-" in Column B.

2. I need to be able to SUM the \$ amounts in Column C ONLY for the items that begin with an "M" in Column A and have a "-" in Column B.

Is there any sort of formula that might do this? I have tried SUM arrays but as I said before, I would rather be able to use the whole column.

5 Yes 4.89
6 11.99

So this example would count 3

## How To Count Rows With Defined Values In Multiple Columns

Nov 7, 2005

I need a formula or function that will sum the number of occurences a
specific text string is entered into cells in column B. I only want to count
the occurences when a number that is in column A (on the same row as the
text) is equal to a specific number. Sounds easy but it's very frustrating.

## Getting Row Count From Other Excel File On Basis Of Multiple Columns

Jun 18, 2014

If I have 2 excel files. One with data about electronic equipment and one with more general counting data, i will explain..

For example the electronic equipment excel file contains data about notebooks, desktops, epads etcetera and also prices and how old they are etcetera. The excel file also has a column for serial number, so for example a notebook serial number looks like this: 23N34ERT3 and an epad SN looks like 25OKE445EE. IF i filter the SN on text and begins with: ??N then it will show me only notebook data(because the N stands for notebook). Same if I only want the Epad I just filter on ??OK, so i get all the epad data.

now for the general counting data file, in this file i actually want to put data which i get from the other electronic equipment file. For example i want this data to be retrieved:

a. total number of rows of notebooks from the electronic equipment file
b. total number of rows of epads from the electronic equipment file
c. how many rows there are for notebook that are 0 - 1 years old(in electronic equipment file there will be a column called product_Years so in this column you have data like: 1,4,12,3) + that are from model: A from the electronic equipment file
d.how many rows there are for notebook that are 2-3 years old + are from model:A from the electronic equipment file and then going on for 3-4 years model:SD etc......
e. in the electronic equipment file there are prices for each model, i also want to calculate the prices for each rows which i get here in the list above.. These rows must be calculated with prices from electronic equipment file

Is there any easier way than constant filtering and copy pasting the data?

## Counting Combinations Where Same Field Data Can Be In Different Columns

Dec 19, 2012

What I am trying to achieve using the example below:

ID Subject 1 Subject 2 Subject 3
1 Italian French German
2 Italian Art Physics
3 German French Italian
4 French Italian German

the result:

Italian French German 3
Italian Art Physics 1

As in the example, the combinations of Italian, French and German where counted, irrelevant of whether the subjects are in 2nd, 3rd or 4th column.

I tried to do this task by creating a pivot table but there are so many permutations and subjects that it would take me a long time to add the combinations.

## All Number Combinations From Entries In 7 Columns And 3 Rows With No Duplicates?

Dec 2, 2013

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.

## Excel 2010 :: Count Consecutive Numbers Over Multiple Columns / Rows

May 27, 2014

I'm using Excel 2010 and my spreadsheet contains numbers in columns A:E and approx 500+ rows. Here is a 10 row example of my data:

A B C D E
0 1 2 3 4
5 6 7 8 9
0 2 4 6 8
1 3 5 7 9
1 2 4 5 8
3 4 5 6 9
9 8 1 2 3
7 6 1 4 0
0 8 2 1 9
1 0 5 3 2

I would like to count the number of consecutive times each number appears (to a max of 9 consecutive times in a row). So, from my example above:

Number 1 appears:
1 consecutive time = 1 (appears in row 1)
2 consecutive times = 1 (appears in rows 4 & 5)
3 consecutive times = 0
4 consecutive times = 1 (appears in rows 7, 8, 9 & 10)

Number 2 appears:
1 consecutive time = 4 (appears in row 1, row 3, row 5 & row 7)
2 consecutive times = 1 (appears in rows 9 & 10)
3 consecutive times = 0
4 consecutive times = 0

Number 5 appears:
1 consecutive time = 2 (appears in row 2 & row 10)
2 consecutive times = 0
3 consecutive times = 1 (appears in rows 4, 5 & 6)
4 consecutive times = 0

and so on....

## Search And Delete Combinations Of 4 Specific Numbers Stored In 5 Columns?

I attached partial file so you can see what i mean. I pasted only a few combinations cause the file was to big and i wasnt able to attach it...there are 142506 combinations . But you can see what i mean. A VBA or a macro on the worksheet will do the job?

## Number Combinations :: Between 7 To 15 (6 Digit Combinations)

Jun 30, 2008

What I am looking for is to select between 7 and 15 numbers in total, I want all the possible 6 digit combinations for this.

EG: if I choose 2,9,11,13,15,17&26, it would look something like this

2,9,11,13,15,17
2,9,11,13,15,26
9,11,13,15,17,26
And so on.

If I chose more numbers (10) 1,2,3,4,3,6,7,8,9,10 it would start something like this

1,2,3,4,5,6
1,2,3,4,5,7
1,2,3,4,5,8
1,2,3,4,5,9
1,2,3,4,5,10
And so on.

Please remenber I would like to be able to secelt between 7 and 15 number and be given all the possible combinations.

I would like it to be in one sheet but if that can not be done on as many as it takes.

It would be good if I could just type the required number into A1,B1,C1 and so on and they just gave the combinations required.

## Count Formula: Count Total Entries In Columns

Feb 22, 2007

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

## Formula For Multiple Count - Without Subtotalling For Each Document And Then A Count

Oct 19, 2009

I have a transactional data set with a line for each transaction and I am looking to count the number of documents (each contains multiple transactions) against criteria.....

It looks something like this.....

Column A Column B
Document No Category
11000001 A
11000002 B
11000003 B
11000002 A
11000001 A

Is there anyway to do this without subtotalling for each document and then a count?

## Count Rows Meeting Multiple Criteria Of Multiple Values

Aug 10, 2009

I am trying to find a formula to count rows that meet multiple criteria, but one of the criteria can be multiple values. I have a list of people with a list of clients that they are responsible for. Each person is responsible for 10-20 clients. Every day I run a report that shows the project worksheets submitted for each client and if money has been awarded or not.

I'm wondering if there is a way to count, for each person, the number of project worksheets that show "awarded" in column K. That would mean that I would have to look for, for each person, any of their multiple clients in column B and "awarded" in column K.

I am trying to put the formula in D2:D9, as I use A2:D9 for a chart. O1:P79 contain the names of the people and the applicants that they are responsible for. A17:D158 contains the list of project worksheets (updated daily). I used =SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIF(B17:B999,P1:P14)) to count the actual number of project worksheets for each person, but I can't figure out a way to modify that to add in the "awarded" criteria also.

## Count Unique Logs With Multiple Conditions Of Multiple Sheets

Oct 8, 2007

I've got no clue about all this, but I've had to get specific formula examples and fill in the blanks in order for my timesheet to work. There's just one final problem if somebody could please help.

This is a timesheet for a 5 day work week. I need to count the number of unique log numbers for a specific activity. The log numbers counted must be unique across the entire week, not just for each day, which means I want the formula to count the unique log numbers across multiple sheets.

The formula also has multiple conditions. I got 2 columns. The first part of the formula needs to verify a word, say, "split" and if it does it checks the adjacent cell for a unique log number. If both arguments are true, it counts the log as 1 unit.

Here is a working formula for only one page.
=COUNT(IF(D4:D29="split",IF(FREQUENCY(C4:C28,C4:C28)>0,1,)))

Here's 2 problems with this formula:
1. I will count if it encounters a blank cell in the Log numbers the first time (which will happen as not every activity we do has a log#), but it will stop counting if it encounters a second blank cell.

2. I don't know how to make it work across several sheets.

This is an alternate formula which works and skips the blank cells, but I don't know how to add the multiple condition of "split" and to have it work across multiple sheets. I just copied it Microsoft. As I said, I don't understand it, I just fill in the blanks.

SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(LEN(C4:C29)>0,MATCH(C4:C29,C4:C29,0),""), IF(LEN(C4:C29)>0,MATCH(C4:C29,C4:C29,0),""))>0,1))
