Count Of Cells Where Occurrence Of Some Specific Text Is Found

May 28, 2013

I have a spreadsheet that lists all the work done by employees within a specific area. Some employees cover multiple areas.

I am now needing to work out the average work completed by each area. I need a formula that will count the number of employees by each work area.

I know this is something I have done before, but my mind has gone blank and I can't for the life of me work it out again (it's one of those days).

Row 3 of the spreadsheet contains the codes for the work areas they cover (CM, V & TC) and some employees only cover one (which would be a simple CountIf) but some have multiple.

What is the formula to, for example, count the number of people who have CM in row 3 even if they also have other entries in that cell.

Find Text, Go To Found Cell & Show Message If More Than 1 Occurrence

Oct 1, 2008

I have a file that the user selects and when they enter a value (in this case, a job title) into the input box, my macro looks for the value in that file. If the value is there, a msgbox pops up that lets the user know that the value was found and it then goes to that cell, displaying in the next msgbox the cell address of where the value was found. I already have the code down for this part of the macro.

My problem is what happens if the file has the same value more than once. Ideally, I'd like to display a message box that returns the addresses of both cells with the same value and then prompts the user to select one of these values as the value they are looking for. I am not sure if a msgbox or a msgbox and then an input box are most appropriate for this situation. Once the user does this, the macro continues. The rest of my macro is built on the cell where this value is, so it is crucial that I make sure there is at least one value selected. Any help is much appreciated. I have included a sample worksheet of what this situation might look like.

Here is the code I presently have for this part of my macro.

Sub GetOpenFileName()
strFind = InputBox("Please enter the job title you wish to search for:", "Search for job title in this file")

If strFind = vbNullString Then Exit Sub

With Sheets(strSheetsMainCompProfile)
If WorksheetFunction. CountIf(Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(100, 100)), "*" & strFind & "*") = 0 Then
MsgBox strFind & " cannot be found on this sheet"
Else

Count The Number Of Cells With A Particular Colour AND SPECIFIC Text?

Jan 15, 2014

I have a spreadsheet where i would like to 'count' the number of cells with a particular colour AND SPECIFIC text (not 'any text').

I attach a xls with the initials of the person in column A, their colour as seen in cells in next four columns with the particular text in each cell. Therefore, for 'ABC1', in the given range, I would like to count how many cells have been allocated with the particular colour (brown, do not know colour index) and the particular text (1 or 2 or 4 or 5) in the range A1:CK39. Haven't supplied the actual sheet for confidentiality reasons.

VBA Code To Stop Macro If Specific Text Is Found

Feb 24, 2012

I have a simple macro that copies data from worksheet to another. I only want this macro to be run once per day by the user. One of the cells that gets copied is the value found in the formula "=today()". My thought is that the macro could look for the existance of the current date in the pasted data (meaning the macro has already been run once today), and if the date = today, then a message pops up warning the user that the macro has already been run once today, and ask if they're sure they want to continue.

Any easy way to accomplish what I'm attempting to do? The current date gets pasted into a worksheet name "PriorDay" in cell C5.

Count Number Of Keywords (range) Found In Text String

Aug 23, 2013

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.

Finding The Maximum Occurrence Of Text Over Non-consecutive Cells

Jun 15, 2009

Im trying to figure out how to show the highest occurrence of text in 10 cells which are not next to each other. Some of the cells will also be blank And the other thing is if there is a draw e.g. 5 2Z and 5 1Z I'd like it to show that, either with a word e.g. "DRAW" or anything really other than just putting whichever of the 2 "notes" in it feels like

Attached is a spreadsheet (all other data deleted) that shows what I am wanting to do I have typed the results I am after directly in to the cells in columns BE & BF BE will need some kind of countif, but when I try that is says I have too many arguments! I have to leave the columns in between blank in this case as they have other info in them, which is really annoying as if those 10 cells were contiguous then the formula

Average Out Range Of Cells Excluding Text Found In Other Cells

Jul 17, 2014

What I want to do is Average out a range of cells "F4:F343". That's the easy part =average(F4:F343). However I want to exclude any numbers for that average if data in coloumn "Q" = "FMC"

Would that look anything like:

=average(F4:F343)/countif(Q4:Q343, "<>FMC")

I'm also displaying it as minutes in a day so i added *24*60 to the end of the formula and formatted to Number/.00. I've entered the formula and it will calculate but when i enter FMC to the appropriate area the average wont change.

Consecutive Value Occurrence Count

Apr 2, 2008

I have to calculate bonus payments for people working O/S. I have a 5 year calendar in month blocks (60 months/columns). In each month there is a percentage 'time O/S' figure.

If an employee is O/S for 3 consecutive months they get bonus 'A', 6 consective months bonus 'B', etc. How can I evaluate the 60 columns, returning the number of times 100% occurs in 3 consecutive months/columns. I have found examples of similar solutions but they will return a value of 3 if there are 5 consecutive months of 100%...

ie. 100 100 100 100 100
= 100 100 100 *** ***
& *** 100 100 100 ***
& *** *** 100 100 100
= 3
but I need it to equal 1

Count Continuous Occurrence Of Each Signs 1-X-2

Oct 22, 2011

Will it be possible to Count continuous occurrence of each signs 1-X-2 and arrange them in corresponding column From Q To AE as shown below in example table: 1

Draw result is shown in cells A2:N11 and result of Count continuous occurrence of each signs 1-X-2 is shown in cells Q2:AE11

For example we take a look row 7 where first sign-2 has occurred 3 times, as

Column Q is for to place result of sign1
And column R is for sign-X
So far count of sign-2, which is 3 times, must be paced in cell S7,

And then count of sign-2, which is 5 times, must be placed in cell V7,
And finally count of sign-X, which is, also 5 times, must be placed in cell X7,

This counts all entries with the status "Contact Sheet Available/Disc Sent" and that have a timestamp within the current month.

I need to alter this to count the last week in September and the first 3 weeks in october (using this month as an example and will have to have to be able to run without changing dates next month).
