# Count Highest Number Of Duplicate Text Entries In Range

Nov 2, 2011
I have a column that is filled with different names. Some names appear more than once. There is one name in fact that appears four times.

I am looking for a formula, or VBA if that's necessary, that will look through the range Y2:Y50, and return a value of 4, because the person that has the most duplicates, her name appears 4 times.

If everyone's name appeared only once, except for a person whose name was in that range twice, then the formula would return a 2.

I have a range of 30 cells in a row. From that row there are groups of cells that have data that might be 1-7 cells populated in a row and in between these groups are blank cells in the row. I need to see what is the highest number of cells in a continuous row that contain data, what the mode is for continuous cell counts, and what is the average value for the data from the continuous cells. The average is a nice to have but not entirely necessary as most cell data will be fairly similar and I can get a close enough average just by knowing the average number of cells that contain data in a row. I have to do this calculation for about 1000 rows of individual data so its important a formula fit in one row.

Almost need a count function to count starting with each cell and then stopping at the first no no value it finds. Then it would show those counts and I could run a formula to pick the highest count and also show the mode of counts.

I will let the experts at it!, my weak mind could not think this one through. I thought something to do with MATCH for a while but no go from what I could do.

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.

there are unique entries like AU0896 etc. that are repeated in my list.

my job is to find how many unique entries there are and add the count at the end so, basically if there are 6 AU0896 entries, then I must create a AU08966 value.

I often need to merge multiple occurences of data (such as account numbers or names) and to sum or count the values associated with each invividual instance (eg cost or number of entries). Data can often be thousands of rows and varies every time. For example:

Col A Col B

Ken 5.9

Ken 12.6

Brian 5.5

John 6.4

Fred 9.9

Fred 11.6

Fred 2.0

I need to be left with either a sum

Ken 18.5

Brian 5.5..............

I have the following two columns, and would like to obtain for each individual Company, the corresponding Country values excluding duplicates as text in a single cell.

Company 2Country B

Company 2Country C

Company 3Country C

Company 3Country C

Company 5Country A

Company 5Country C

Company 5Country C

For example:

- For Company 2, a cell containing "Country B, Country C"

- For Company 3, a cell containing "Country C"

- For Company 5, a cell containing "Country A, Country C"

I've approached generating an array using an IF statement, as in =IF(INDEX(A1:A8="Company 5",,),INDEX(B1:B8,,)," "), which returns the following array: ={" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";"Country A";"Country C";"Country C";" ";" ";" ";" "}.

The question is: how do I get that array to produce, as text in a cell: "Country A, Country C". Note that the duplicate Country C has been removed.

There are a few "StringConcat" User-defined functions that I've found elsewhere on the internet, but they don't seem to be able to handle to conditionally generated IF Index array, which I would think is key to parsing between Countries corresponding to each Company in the list.

I have a spreadsheet I use for creating golf score cards. I select the golfers from a drop down list and display a message if a golfer has already been selected. The ranges I want to use are A7:A15, A25:A33, A43:A51, A60:A68. My code is below and I am getting an error saying 'compile error, argument not optional' and UNION is highlighted.

Code:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If Intersect(Target, Union(Range("A7:A15, A25:A33, A43:A51, A60:A68"))) Is Nothing Then

With WorksheetFunction

Option Explicit

Dim myCount As Byte

Dim myColumn As String

Dim myRow As Long

Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

myCount = 0

If Range("B" & myRow).Value <> "" Then myCount = myCount + 1

If Range("C" & myRow).Value <> "" Then myCount = myCount + 1

If Range("D" & myRow).Value <> "" Then myCount = myCount + 1

If Range("E" & myRow).Value <> "" Then myCount = myCount + 1

If myCount > 1 Then....................

The above code pops up the message box when a second entry is made within the specified range, but OK button does not function, contents are not cleared, and Excel locks up.

I have a list of ID's, many of which appear several times. Is there a formula that will give me the number of different ID's? That is:

CON001

CON100

CON050

CON001

the formula would give the answer "3" for 3 different numbers in the 4 total numbers.

I want to count the number of times a word appears in a range (like M9:S663), but sorting it by the month it appears (eg: january = 2, february = 56, march = 2000, etc.)

I managed to do this but there has to be a better way

=COUNTIFS(RNM.1;"PRUM Transcripcion";FechaComite;">=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";

FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";

FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"

I'm using excel 2007, here's what I need.

I want to count the number of cells in a range that have text in them (any text at all) but not count them if they have numbers in them or are blank. How would this formula be written?

I am trying to count the number of specific words contained in a specific cell. If my data were static, and the list of keywords was short, there are many solutions such as using multiple instances of the length function as proposed by @shg here.

Suppose I have the following sheet: (column C is what I am trying to achieve)

A

B

C

1

[Code]....

That is, C2 will tell that B2 contained 3 of the keywords (1X beautiful, 2X happy) and so on.

I have a list of words in one column, some of which feature more than once, in random order, i.e.:

Bird

Plane

Superman

Superman

Plane

Superman

Bird

Plane

I want to have a function that counts the number of times each word appears, so in the cell next to each entry for "Superman" it would say 3, for "Bird" 2 etc. If I add another "Superman" it should then change to 4 next to each entry. Also, I will be adding new words all the time, so the function needs to be able to cope with that too.

I would like to count number of approved projects (Yes) and denied projects (No) on monthy basis. See attached file for more info..

If F17 is "No" on the month of Sept 09, then cell "O2" should count number of "No" in the month of sept.

I'm trying to Count the number of Entries on a Sheet that match an Hour. Looking through the availiable functions i found COUNTIFS, which is exactly what I want. However, when I try to compare the Hour values within the COUNTIFS arguments, there is an error.

This is the function that I figured would work here:

=COUNTIFS(HOUR(Sheet1!G:G), HOUR(E6))

which should count all entries in column G where its HOUR matches the HOUR in E6 (all are time format). I do realize that in the example above there is only one comparison made and i'm using COUNTIFS instead of COUNTIF, but i'll be adding other comparisons to it once i get this first comparison working.

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?

I want to learn how to program excel to do this :

1) Type in a text data in a predesignated entry box

2) Excel automatically inserts that text into a table

3) If that text is already in the table, then adds a counter next to it (or increases the counter by one)

4) Excels then clears the text data in the entry box

Basically, I want to tabulate the number of times a specific entry comes up, and it would be much faster if I can just type it in, press enter, and let excel do the rest. It would be ideal if I can also add a date to that entry, so the data table comes up to something like a date vs the entries table, and the intersection would be the number of times each entry comes up on that day.

I WANT it to search all of column A for the highest number in the range (which will change daily to a new high number above the highest currently), and return the value in column 4 (column D) that corresponds to that value from column A. This is what I have, but it is not working, it is giving me the number (1) in Cell A800 (which is the lowest valued number in my range. The numbers range in value from 1 to 762 with none repeating (they are sequential). The formula I have is :

=+VLOOKUP(MAX(A76:A2000),A76:I2000,4)

I am trying to do 2 things involving data validation. 1) Count the number of entries in a data validation dropdown list and display a result. 2) Use an If statement to pull the formatting from a cell into another cell.

An example would be if Cell A1="A", then show the drop down list associated with cell or sheet "!ryanB2". Alternatively, I would like to also display the number of entries in the drop down list.

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.

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)?

how to count how many times a word or text is displayed in a column.

Say this is Column A Can any formula be used to tell me that T1409 was duplicated 3 times and T1527 was used 2 times. The rest of the numbers only triggered once so I dont care for those numbers. I only want T1409 and T1527 to pop up and tell me how many times it was used.

StoreT1409T1409T1527T1527T1360T2463T1547T0164T1976T2482T1409T2760T1507T0224T2458T0201T2398

need to understand the easiest way of highlighting the highest and lowest number in a range of cells several times in the same column.

As I said the cell range will be in the same column. So highlight the highest number green and lowest number red in cells a3 to a9 and then repeat the same process again in cells a11 to a17 and so on.the cell references are an example.

So I have several separate sets of numbers in the same column.

Is it possible to count Text & Non Text Entries in the following way?

The value in cell A1 = 18A

The value in cell B1 = 18B

The value in cell C1 = 19

A Cell with a value that includes and A or a B constitutues a half of a unit so -

The sum of A1 on its own would be .50

The sum of B1 on its own would be .50

The sum of C1 on its own would be 1.0

The sum of B1:C1 would be 1.5
