# Count Groups Of Alternating Rows Across 3 Columns?

Jan 18, 2014

I'm looking for a way to count groups of alternating rows of "TRUE" values across 3 columns. There will never be an occurrence of more than one "TRUE" value per row. In the sample below, alternating TRUE values occur in rows 4 through 7, so this would be counted with the groups of 4.

1Column 1Column 2Column 3
2FALSEFALSETRUE
3FALSEFALSETRUE
4FALSE TRUEFALSE
5 TRUEFALSEFALSE
6FALSE TRUEFALSE
7 TRUEFALSEFALSE

## Alternating Color For Groups Of Rows

Aug 1, 2014

My spreadsheet has rows with inspection numbers in column A, but there are varying numbers of rows associated with an inspection number. I'd like to change the color of the rows for every other inspection number to yellow using a formula. I think it has to involve an if/then statement but I can't figure out how to word the formula to just choose every other group of inspection numbers.

Example:
inspection numbers
date

## Excel 2010 :: Highlight Groups Of Identical Number Cells In Alternating Grey And White?

Jun 27, 2014

I am looking for a way to highlight groups of identical number cells in alternating grey and white. My goal is to make it clear when there is a repeating set of numbers. Below is an example of what a completed state of this would look like that I created manually. The real form I will be using this code on will have long number which is why I am looking for this added clarification. I am using excel 2010.

## Convert/Transpose Multiple Groups Of Rows Across Columns

Mar 9, 2009

How to convert multiple Rows recors to a single row record in a Notes(csv) format? Have update my xls file. My source is in the below format(Source.xls):

GroupName_A,Name_A
GroupName_A,Name_B
GroupName_A,Name_C
GroupName_B,Name_D
GroupName_B,Name_E
GroupName_B,Name_F
GroupName_B,Name_G
GroupName_B,Name_H
GroupName_B,Name_I

I want to convert it to a CSV file where by it can be import to Lotus Notes (output.xls):

1,1,Group,GroupName_A,"Name_A,Name_B,Name_C","CN=John Sam/OU=FIN/OU=staff/O=IBM,CN=Mary Flow/OU=FIN/OU=staff/O=IBM",CN=John Sam/OU=FIN/OU=staff/O=IBM
1,1,Group,GroupName_B,"Name_D,Name_E,Name_F,Name_G,Name_H,Name_I","CN=John Sam/OU=FIN/OU=staff/O=IBM,CN=Mary Flow/OU=FIN/OU=staff/O=IBM",CN=John Sam/OU=FIN/OU=staff/O=IBM

As you can see only GroupNameN, and Name_N are varibles, the rest of the fields are static. note that there is opening and closing quota for column "E" and "F" in output.xls

## Sorting Multi-rows & Columns Of Data In Groups

Mar 30, 2007

I realize that the easier resolve to this request is to use Access & we are moving to that application.

I have included a worksheet as an example.

We have a 'work in progress' (WIP) worksheet that contains 12 rows of data per job. Need to know how (or if) you can sort by the "Job #:" value while maintaining the group of information necessary for each individual job.

Not a normal sort because the values aren't entered in typical side-by-side row & column format.

## Count Alternating Values In Column?

Aug 25, 2014

I'm sure there's a simple way to do this (I've been trying countif/match formulas but I'm not quite there)! I need to group line items with the same dollar value, WITHIN say 1 cent. If I do a pivot it will group exact matches, but I'm looking for the flexibility to group something within a few cents. So instead of pivots, I was trying to think of a formula that would do what Column A is doing below:

*I manually added Column A, looking for a formula that would group dollar values within 1 cent, assuming I've sorted Column B from smallest to largest:

Column A : Column B
1 : \$2.13
1 : \$2.14
2 : \$3.00
2 : \$3.01
2 : \$3.01
3 : \$4.00

## Merging 2 Columns Into 1 Alternating Every Other Column

Aug 12, 2010

I'm looking for a way to put data into 1 column from 2 different columns, alternating every other row.

The data looks like this:
A B C
1 2
3 4
5 6

And I want C to look like this:
C
1
2
3
4
5
6

I don't necessarily need to keep the data in columns A and B, as long as C follows this format.

Excellent, just what I was looking for. I couldn't get the UDF working right, I'll try messing around with it, but the Index solution works great!

## Select Alternating Columns With Unknown End Point

Feb 18, 2010

so I have been googling to figure out how to write a macro that will select every other column on my workbook. All that keeps coming up is conditional formatting, which I do not want. I am not trying to highlight the columns in alternating colors, I just want to select them.

I am starting at column F and I would like it to search until the end of the columns and select every other column ending with the last column with data in it.

I know I could search by a specific row and tell it to find the first blank cell then offset it, but there is no particular row that will always have data in it, so I guess it needs to check by column until it finds the first column without any data in all rows and then offset it.

Anyone know what I am talking about here?

I know it should be fairly simple but I couldn't seem to find any answers anywhere else.

Also, anyone know any good websites that have definitions for some basic macros? I'd love to start learning how to write this stuff on my own.

## Macro To Color Alternating Rows

Apr 13, 2009

I was wondering, what would the macro be to colour alternating rows.

So I could select the range of rows, hit the macro - and it would colour them for me?

I need it to do alternating green / lightgreen. For one, but I need to do other colours afterwards as well. So what would the code be to do this?

## Shading Alternating Rows In A Range

Nov 30, 2006

Is there a way to shade alternating rows in a range and have it always be alternating no matter if a row is added in the middle of the range. If I do it manually now and add a row it messes up the shading and fixing it manually is very time consuming.

## Copy Paste Alternating Rows

Jan 28, 2008

In column H I have dates from 1/1/2008 to 12/31/2013. What I would like to do is transfer that data to column J, but alternate it every other row and then insert the word Date into the blank cells. For instance J1 would read "Date" and then J2 would read 1/1/2008 J3 would be Date and J4 would be 1/2/2008. I have a large database and I tried to use array formulas and they slow it down to a crawl so I was working with DSUM, but I don't feel like wasting time with adding in Date manually.

## Separate A Line Of Alternating Text/Numbers Into Columns

Jul 20, 2009

I have thousands of lines of data that are of the following form:

Jackson, TN 9623 BCBS TN 98 UnitedHlthCare 2
Jacksonville, FL 3577 Aetna 47 BCBS FL 37
Knoxville, TN 3796 Cariten 44 John Deere 41
Lakeland-Winter Haven, FL 2165 UnitedHlthCare 31 Aetna 29

I need to separate these lines into columns such that, for example, the first line would be in 6 columns: (Jackson, TN) (9623) (BCBS TN) (98) (UnitedHlthCare) (2)

The delimiter does not work because some of there is no one character that always separates the text and the numbers. I've tried going through in word and typing something like '%' where I want to separate, but with thousands of lines of data that is extremely tedious.

Is there any formula I can use that would be capable of solving this?

## Quickly Select Cells In Alternating Rows

Jul 21, 2009

I am interested in selecting cells in alternating rows as follows:

12 Red Happy
00 Unique descriptor
03 Unique descriptor
14 Yel Happy
02 Unique descriptor

I am interested in selecting all the "12, 13, etc", "Red, Grn, ..." and "Happy, Sad..." for analysis, but want to skip all the rows containing the 0- numbers and the descriptors for them. How do I quickly select only the alternating cells in a column within a selection?

## Conditional Formatting Similar To Shading Alternating Rows

Aug 18, 2006

I'm trying to use the following formula in conditional formatting in cell A2 when the range A2:AW64 is selected (this conditional
formatting will be copied to all cells in the selected range):

Formula is: =isodd(\$A2)

The error I keep getting is this:

"You may not use references to other worksheets or other workbooks for Conditional Formatting criteria."

I'm trying to use this conditional formatting because column A is our "Order" column. "Order" can be from 1 to 13 and this column
is sorted ascending. There can be multiple rows in each Order number. So I want to shade all 1's, 3's, 5's, etc... so that each

I also want to use conditional formatting, not VBA, to get this to work. In the future, rows might be added to an Order number or two and I want the shading to automatically adjust.

## Copy Multiple Columns Groups To 1 Group Of X Columns

Aug 6, 2009

Example:................

The key point is that I have over 400 columns grouped in three, offset by one row down for each (this is due to a different formula I have working). Each column is 60 numbers long (not including empty cells above data). I want to copy all of these columns into a single set of three columns on another sheet (Sheet2). (These will be the fifth, sixth, and seventh columns, E, F, and G. If it would be simpler, I could simply copy the third of each set of columns on Sheet1 (C, F, I) to column G of Sheet2. Then there would be a total of 144 columns being copied (60 numbers per column).) All of this copying has to be values-only as the original columns consist of formulas referencing outside cells. Sheet2 should look like this:.............

## Count Rows / Columns In Folder?

Aug 4, 2014

I want to create a macro that will read excel files within a folder and will count the number of rows and columns. Then it will output the Name/Number of Rows/Number of columns into the current excel file. So output will look like this

Excel File NameNumber of RowsNumber of Columns

I have managed a macro to read the files and columns but the output is giving me a hard time.

## Count Of Consecutive Cell Groups

Split from Count Of Groups Where Last Character Is Unique

The A1 B1 C1 were not the data items in the table, but the cell addresses. The new title of the thread does not reflect what I am asking either. The focus of the question is the counting of groups, not counts of cell contents.

## Macro To Split Rows Into Groups Of 5 And Insert 3 Blank Rows In Between

Feb 9, 2013

I would like to have my macro code search column A (supplier numbers) and split the rows into groups of rows of 5 or less and then insert 3 blank rows between each group of rows. The split needs to start on a new supplier number and cannot split a supplier number into two different groups. Here is a sample:

Supplier

## Count Columns And Rows From Defined Range

Jun 23, 2013

I would like to modify my code below to count columns and rows from a different range. Currently, the code below only reads from A1 of my data table. My data table starts at F7 with n columns and y rows. Each time I run the macro it does not recognise the range but only from A1.

How to modify this code to read for a defined range?

Dim lRowCount As Long
Dim iCol As Integer

## Count Rows Between Occurrences In Multiples Columns

Dec 24, 2006

How do I create a code that record on row 1012, starting with column N, will count the number of rows between each "0" record in the range F7:F106. Perform the same function for number "0" in the range G7:G106 and recording in N1013.

Perform the same function for number "0" in the range H7:H106 and recording in N1014. Perform the same function for number "0" in the range F7:H106 and recording in N1015.

## 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.

## 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?

## How To Count Groups Of Cells In A Range Using Specific Criteria

Jul 24, 2014

I want to count the number of groups of 3 adjacent cells in a horizontal range (C5:EV5) in which any cell in the group of 3 has a value in it (as opposed to all the cells being blank or containing "0"). For example, if any or all of the cells in C5:E5 have a value in it, it would count as 1, and if any of the cells in the group F5:H5 have a value, it would also count as 1, and so on. Is there a way to use COUNTIF for this?

## Excel 2007 :: Count Number Of Duplicate Rows With Two Columns?

Jun 3, 2012

I want to count the number of duplicate rows where the exact text in columns A and B match. An example is as follows, where column C would be the desired result. Note that there are hundreds of different text values of column A and hundreds of column B, I just simplified the example.

## Excel 2007 :: Retrieving Count Distribution Of Groups Of Cells?

Jan 27, 2013

I have a .csv open in Excel 2007 that looks like the following

Code:
1 566
1 566
1 566
2 341
2 341
3 566
3 566
3 566
3 566
...

There is a one-to-one relationship between Column A and B, but B is not unique (but can only take a small set of valid values). I wish to query how many id's (Column A) contain a particular property (Column B). If the example above ended before the "...", I would like to get as the output:

Code:
566 2
341 1

because the property 566 is owned by two id's (1 and 3) and the property 341 is only owned by the id 2.

## Re-ordering Some Columns (groups Of Columns)

Nov 22, 2008

I must put in descendent order some columns, but the thing is a bit more complicated...
As my english is not very good i am gonna explain it with a simple example:

----------------------------------
1 4 2 5 rabit fox dog cat
2 6 1 3 bird fis wolf mouse
----------------------------------------

Ok, i must order the numbers in a ascendent way, but reordering one number means also reordering its correspondient name (the name of the animals at its right).
So, again, with an example you will see it better:

Ordering the first row it must appear like this:

----------------------------------------------
1 2 4 5 rabit dog fox cat
----------------------------------------------

I didnt know if i had to post it here or in other subforum and either if it can be done with excel.
