# Count Number Of Blank Cells In Range Starting And Ending Will Cells That Match String Values

May 13, 2013
I'm trying to develop a new daily timesheet for my production workers, where non-production items are recorded in 15 minute intervals. The user would put in "Clock in" by the corresponding time, and the same for "Clock out" at the end of the day. Any non-production items will be type in next to their appropriate time. Since clock in and clock out times will vary, I need to set up a formula that searches the array of cells for the day, finds the "Clock in" and "Clock out" values, and counts any blank cells in between them. Basically the blank cells will equal production time, and the result of the Count function will be multiplied by 0.25 to get the hours.

I am having a very difficult time finding a way to set the "Clock in" and "Clock out" cells as the range for the Count function, because it won't always be the same cells. What would be the best way to automatically have excel find the cells containing these values and set them as the range criteria for a Count function?

The formula at the bottom was one of my initial attempts, but it didn't work. I took out the '=' for the screenshot, so that wasn't the problem.

create a function that counts only the number of rows in a range which contain less than 5 instances of the string "VAC". So if they have less than 5 cells in the row that contain "VAC" count + 1.

For reference, I’ve attached a sample spreadsheet. I’m trying to find a way to calculate the max number of blank cells between a range of cells. As an example, in row two of my data, the result would be 3 using the range of F2:N2. Can this be done without the use of VB?

I have this formula which is counting the number of cells in a column that fall within each calender month.

However, if there is a formula at the bottom of column B and C that yield a "", the formula breaks.

In my workbook, B/C:133 have a formula =""

I will need the formula in column E to work if there is a formula that yields a "" in column B and C.

Getting a formula or macro that count the number of blank cells between 2 cells with data (numbers) in 1 column. E.g.

1

Blank

Blank

2

Blank

Blank

Blank

3

...

In this case the blanks between 1 and 2, between 2 and 3 to be displayed in an adjacent column.

I am using Excel to use stock ticker symbols such as FDX "Fedex", to return past volume and price daily performance found in Google Finance that will be manipulated with the current VBA I am working on that will result in a trading pattern. Each trading pattern will happen at a different range in the same column. I will be inputting hundreds of ticker symbols daily so using VBA and not having to enter formulas manually in each is greatly preferred as this will save me lots of time.

I am stuck trying to find the average value of a range starting from the minimum to the maximum value. For instance, Range("H10:H20") may have a maximum value at range("H12") and a minimum at Range("H18"). I would like the average of Range("H12:H18").

Sub Fnd()

Dim MaxStartPriceRange As Range

Dim MinStartPriceRange As Range

Dim MaxPriLocation As Double

Set MaxStartPriceRange = Range("h11:h21")

MaxPriLocation = Application.Max(MaxStartPriceRange)

Set MaxStartPriceRange = MaxStartPriceRange.Find(MaxPriLocation)

Dim MnPriLocation As Double

I have a macro that copies three sections of data from a word document and pastes it within the Excel worksheet. The column of data is pasted in a single column (data to be space-delimited and evaluated later), and what I would like the MACRO to do is separate the three sections of data based on the starting and ending values of the section and place them in different columns.

Section 1 : starts with the word "Team"

Section 1 : ends with the word "City"

Section 2 : starts with the word "Location"

Section 2 : ends with the word " Date"

Section 3 : starts with the word "Member"

Section 3: ends with the word "Age"

So section 1 would be pasted into cell C1, section 2 pasted into G1 and section 3 pasted into J1.

Each section will have vary in number of rows between the starting/ending values, so to cut and paste the section based on the starting and ending value is vital.

I need to accomplish selecting a range using variables for the starting cell and ending cell rows and columns.

Pseudo code (how I'd like the syntax to be, but isn't):

Worksheets(mysheet).range(startCellRow, startCellCol : endCellRow,endCellCol).Select

With Selection

I can count the blank cells withiin a range using

=COUNTBLANK(C6:AD2506)

But I dont want it to count the cells if the entire row, within that cell, i.e. C6:AD6, is blank.

It should only count the blank cells within a row if there has been some data entered on that row..provided it has been entered within the specified range.

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")?

I need to count the number of non blank cells in a column and add a text string to the result to show, for example, "75 Clubs" as the result. I have tried "=Count(A1:A90) + Clubs" but this does not work.

From the highlighted cells at B17 to B19, while using some kind of lookup or indexing method, I want to count the number of cells in that specific range that's great than zero. This list is just a sample, the list will be much bigger and order may not be the same--that's why I need to lookup the project name.

This formula counts how many dates in the range match the month in cell (Q3). How do I get this formula to to not count empty cells. I keep getting $VALUE! as my answer when I include all the cells in the range.

This is the formula:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(P20:P976-DAY(P20:P976)+1=DATE(YEAR(Q3),MONTH(Q3),1)))

This is the formula in the cells of the range that is being used above:

=IF(D26="","",IF(F26"",F26,IF(I26"",I26,IF($Q$3"",$Q$3))))

I needed this formula to leave the cell blank if all the data cells were blank that's why I have =IF(D26="","", at the begining.

I have a spreadsheet that contains given answers to a multiple choice test. I want to count the number of times each possible answer has been chosen at the bottom of the column. I have tried to use COUNTIF and that works fine to give me the number times each answer has been chosen but there is just one annoying thing. If the given answer hasn't been chosed by anyone, a "0" is automatically entered into the cell. This tends to really clutter up the spreadsheet and I would prefer for the cell to be left blank if the answer hasn't been chosen by anyone.

The closest I can come up with is: {=IF(D1:D10="","",COUNTIF(D1:D10,"A"))} but unless the answer "A" is chosed in D1, the cell remains blank.

If "A" is chosed in D1, then the formula works and counts all the rest of the cells that have "A" as an answer.

(It's hard to get out of the mindset of formula writing and into the structure of code).

I want to count the blank cells in a range of data from C4 to I4

I've written the

Range(Cells(4, "C"), Cells(4, "I")).Count

but this counts the number of cells. What's the simplist way of counting the blank cells in this range?

i have a list of 100 product codes in row b2:cw2, colum A contains dates in the month, yesterdays first and then each previous day before that going down, and the columns B:CW are the number of each particular product sold on that day.

I'd like to insert a formula in row 1 which will look down each column and count the number of blank cells from B3 to the first cell to contain a value, i.e. the number of days since this particular product was sold.

where i can grab a number from a cell it would ALWAYS be the last string item..

for example if cell A1 has the following text:

04/02 Card Purchase 03/31 Google*1873060297 Cc@Google.Com CA Card 5036 $500.00

i want cell B1 to hold just the $500

this wold always be the case for everything im trying to do

I receive spreadsheets which tell me where samples are located in 96 well plates. The plates' rows are lettered A-H, and the columns are numbered 1-12. So, for example, the first well is labeled A1, the 12th is A12, the 13th is B1, and the 96th is labeled H12.

When I receive the spreadsheets, there are cells that tell me which wells are occupied. For example a cell will contain "A2 - B7" or "D3-F12" (sometimes with the spaces before and after the "-", and sometimes not." I need a program that will tell me that "A2-B7" (or "A2 - B7") means there are 18 wells occupied.

I've tried a few things, but a lot of problems arise when I try to do anything with names like "A1" because excel already defines "A1" as cell A1. Do you guys have any ideas? Am I being clear?

I have a function which copy pastes data into a sheet based on a filter criteria. It is also pasted in a specific layout(shown below) starting from Cell A1 in the top left corner. Therefore the destination sheet could have a different number of rows with values each time.

What I would like to do is count the sum of 'Values' in the destination sheet, and add a total below it.

For example, the [=TOTAL] cell is where I want the total to appear. Below the answer would be 26. But say if Peter wasnt in the record, the formula should still work in identifying the Total as 20.

Title:

Sheridan

Owner

Petrov G

[Code]....

Is there a way I can achieve the desired result? I figured I had to somehow count from the first record by Peter, to the last one, whichever that may be.

I'm trying to copy the non blank cells in an area ("B120:K239"). and special paste (values only) to the next blank row of the actual work area (3 pages) within the worksheet. The area that this needs to paste to is between("B10:K29, B44:K63, B78:K97"). Problem is that if there are more rows to be copied and pasted then there are open rows on the first sheet it gives an error due to the rows outside those areas having different formats (merged cells and that)

Question: Is there anyway to special paste between ranges? I've tried to hide the inbetween rows and that still doesn't work. Could it be possible to add something to this code to ignore hidden rows or to only paste to visible rows?

Sub Special_Paste ()

Application. ScreenUpdating = False

With Range("B119")

. AutoFilter Field:=2, Criteria1:="<>"

With Range("B120:K239")

Application.CutCopyMode = False

.Copy

With Range("30:43")

.EntireRow.Hidden = True

With Range("64:77")

.EntireRow.Hidden = True

Dim NextRow As Range

Set NextRow = Range("B97").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)...............

How to modify a custom cell format to make data entry easier.

My goal is to have the output look like this: 'A12B-C20D: SET 10: Text string here'

Inputs needed are:

1-3 digit number between A & B

1-3 digit number between C & D

1-2 digit number after SET

Text string of variable length

Where I am stuck. So far I can get "A12B-C20D: SET 10:" to show up properly when 122010 is input. The custom format I am using looks like this: "A"##"B-C"##"D: SET "##": "

When I try to incorporate the "@" symbol the first part of the formatting goes away and the output shows up as "122010 Text string here".

I have tried:

"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##":";;-;_@

"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##": ";;@

"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##":";_@

"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##": ";;;@

how to built a formula or a VBA code which would tell me how many times a range of a certain amount of consecutively stnading cells in a given row there is present, where each of the cells belonging to these five cells fulfills a certain criterion.

Example:

How many times does the range of 5 consecutive cells appear in range A1 to P2, where every cells belongng to these 5 consecutive cells would have a value graeater than 10.

Rather than having to give it a range, I'd like to have a generic range giving me room to add or subtract values in the column without changing this statement.

Code:

Worksheets("Sheet1").Shapes("Combobox2").ControlFormat.ListFillRange = _

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.

Ok so my named range looks like this:

[Code]....

However, I want to ignore the "" cells and the truly blank cells... However, I think all of them will have "" since I have this formula in all of the ones I'm putting in the range:

[Code]....

How do I go about getting these results into a named range so I can use it on validation since validation only seems to ignore truly blank cells and not the "" ones.
