Count Of Unique Entries As The Subtotal Of A Pivot Table

Jan 28, 2010

I have attached an example of what i am trying to do. I can work out how to calculate unique entries by putting in a formula under a pivot table, but is it possible to select an option in the pivot table settting which will give this result?

I need to count the number of unique companies that receive money within a specific QTR. I have made this simple example, I have a Table called Awards, with Headings for DATE, QTR, Company, Awarded, on one worksheet, that I need to feed the data into a summary on another worksheet. What formula using table heading can I use to achieve the answer 3 unique companies for Q1-13.

Would like to know the number of unique customers (CUST_ID) have purchases and the sum of those purchases and how many transactions:

CUST_ID Sum of QTY Count of Transactions 50 $2000 1500

I cant seem to find how to do unique Cust using a pivot table - it just gives me a count of cust which is the same number as the number of transactions.

The pivot table has only two columns, the first is the identification number and the second is the count of the identification number. I am trying to get a count of the number of identification numbers, not how many times it was entered in the spreadsheet (some numbers are entered more than once on different days). It currently looks like:

Column A Column B 00000001 1 00000002 1 00000003 2 00000004 1 00000005 3 Grand Total 8

I'm trying to arrive at 5 for the answer, so that each number is only counted once even if used more than once.

I have a spreadsheet with several records for each person's name. I want to have pivot tables based on various columns, with the data field being a count of unique occurrences of a person's name.

When I set up a basic Pivot, it counts each occurence of the person's name.

I have a worksheet with a list of employees and the workgroup they belong to, along with other data like manager, start dates, etc. Recently a couple of the workgroups were duplicated (change in managers), so these employees are showing up on two rows even though the workgroup has the same name. The only differences in the two rows are the workgroup effective start and end dates. I need to be able to count, in a pivot table, the number of unique employee/workgroup combinations there are per workgroup. I can add columns to the sheet, but it's a dynamic set of data that will grow each time it's refreshed...

I'm trying to create a pivot table that will count how many employees have completed a Learning Plan. This task becomes complex (for me) because each learning plan has multiple Courses, each Course has a status of "Completed" or "Incomplete". A Learning Plan would only be considered "Completed" if all the courses within that Learning Plan were completed. In doing some research, it looks like I'll need to create another column of data, that shows per employee, per Learning Plan, if the entire Learning Plan has been completed, but I'm not sure of the best way to go about this. Please find SampleData attached.

I have data that has a customer name and the month that they were taken care of" (of course not spaces

Customer Month Smith January Smith January Mark January Suzy January Smith February Mark February

I want a pivot table to say:

Month #customers January 3 February 2

but when I do the count it adds the total number of customer names and gives (it is counting smith twice in January

Month #customers January 4 February 2

I was reading something about doing the count (so it shows 4) and then doing an index within the count but I keep just getting 1 as the value (for both months).

I tried doing a formula in the document that said =IF(ISERROR(MATCH(A2,$A$1:A15,0)),1,0). basically looking to see if the name is above the location I am looking at and if it is to put a 0 if not put 1 and then do a sum of that column....trouble is that when a customer has orders on more than one month, the second month is coming up with a 0 instead of a 1 (and this happens quite often).

I am not sure what to do. if the customer shows up in more than one month I want them to count towards the unique count of both january and february...we look at each month separately.

I'm trying to count how many production orders i have per week. However, there are duplicated production orders per week. I only want to count how many unique orders there are for each week. I only see the ability to "Count", which counts my duplicates as well so it over inflates my true quantity.

Is it possible to get a unique count in a group subtotal though the elements in the group may not be unique using Pivot Tables w/o resorting to Power Pivot?

Ex

Group 123 Group 456

Are both members of NorthDivision

If someone is in Group 123 for 9 months, then Group 456 for 3 months, that membership should be reflected in the correct group accordingly.However, that person should only be counted once in the NorthDivision, not twice.

Output:

Group 123 0.75 Group 456 0.25 NorthDivision 1

At first glance, it appears easy, however, what if membership is only total 3 months?Then Group would increment 0.25, but I need NorthDivision to increment 1

I want to get a subtotal of columns B C and D in a pivot table. I have tried to add a calculated item to a pivot table to add columns B C and D. When I try adding a calcuted item I am getting an additional column inserted after columns B C and D. Each additional column has the previous column duplicated. I want a subtotal of column B C and D. I don't want to use the grand total function because I also have columns E through H that I don't want in the subtotal.

How can I get the columns B C and D subtotaled within the pivot table?

I have a pivot Table with region & product wise as shown in the enclosed file. While calculating % of each item in region it is referring to grand total or total of column. Is there any way how to get this % calculated in regard of subtotal region.

I am hoping this can be done with formulae. Starting at C7 and continuing down the C column there is a list of names which could potentially run from C7 to C5000. This list of names will contain duplicates. For each name there is a corresponding 'reason' in the F column which will contain the word 'Truancy' or 'Late'.

I need a formula that can count the number of UNIQUE names in the C column which correspond to the word 'Truancy' or 'Late' in the E column.

An example,

[Name].....................[Reason] C7 ...........................E7 John Potts.................Truancy 2 Matt Jones................Truancy 10 John Potts.................Truancy 4 Matt Jones ...............Late AM Pete Burns................Late PM Pete Burns ...............Late Both Steve Lopez..............Truancy 6

Count of unique names with the word Truancy in the corresponding E column = 3 [John Potts has 2 instances of the word truancy in column E but this is only counted once]

Count of unique name with the Word Late in the corresponding E column = 2 [Pete Burns has 2 instances of the word late in the E column but this is only counted once].

I have data in a pivot table that has some positive and negative values. At the end of the Pivot Table, it sums the values for each month and then a grand total. I would like to also have it show the summation of all negative values per month. So it would be:Jan Total Jan Negative Total Feb Total Feb Negative Total etc... Grand Total Grand Negative Total Is it possible to add such functionality?

I am working on a pivot table and am having issues with our subtotal: Sum / Averages.

The pivot is setup as so: excel help.jpg

The problem is I need the average column to average the viewable area, and not from the data, so for example G28 should be 55 and not 6. Also, I need the Average of the fill rate to be a value.

In the attached Excel file, there is a pivot table.

In the Data part of the table, there are two columns. The second is the exact same field than the first one but expressed as percentage (Field settings/Options/Show field as "% of" + "Total".

The problem is: I don't want to express this field as a % of Total ('Grand total') but rather as a % of Subtotal (e.g. Danemark Total).

I create a Pivot Table in Excel 2003, excel by default puts the field settings for each of the columns to Automatic, creating a Total for each aggreate column, which is very annoying.

I have to manually go in in each field and change field settings > None. for each column, since no copy and paste special function to make all the columns have same subtotal >none.

Count unique entries in a column according to two specified criteria.Specifically, I am trying to count the number of days in a month a supplier has a visited.Below is an example taken from the excel:

COLUMN A COLUMN B Date Supplier 01-ago-12 Mr X 01-ago-12 Mr X 01-ago-12 Mr X

I want a formula that allows me to see how different dates Mr X has visited in each month. So in August he has visited 8 times BUT only on 5 different dates.

In the case of Mr Y I want the formula to give the answer 5 (even though he has visited 6 times in total, he has visited on only 5 different dates).

In the case of Mr X in September, the answer to the formula would be 2, since has visited on 2 different dates in September.

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.

I tried to ask this question yesterday -- but it was a follow-up question stuck at the bottom of a thread. So, with your indulgence, here is a simpler version of the question, complete with an attached spreadsheet, if you wish to use it. I also closed the other thread by marking it "Solved", since it answered my initial question.]

The situation:

I have two columns of data. The data is not in alphabetical order, and every column includes duplicate values.

namegender jones m martinf smithf collinsf wilsonm jones m martinf hughesm wilsonm martinm smithf west f jones m west f martinm

The challenge:

In one cell, count the number of unique names that appear in the name column 3 or more times... with the additional condition that each unique name (which appears at least 3 times) must include at least one one woman!

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?

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)?

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.

I have a list of data and I want to identify the unique entries for both columns but the second column has to unique to the unique values in the first column.

I have recently noticed a problem with a pivot table and assoicated pivot chart. The table has numerous columns from date, location and one entitled route. The route column has a value which is either a number or 'other'. The formatting of the column has been set to general (although the same problem was present under text). The problem is as follows:

When a new row of data is entered where the route is the same value as previous rows it should be grouped together. However when I go into my pivot table and look at the options for route I find the same value repeated twice. ie a route value of 155 will be listed once at the top and then lower down the list. A temporary fix is to rename all values of 155 to x155 and then back to 155. This then has everything grouped again under one value in the pivot table. As soon as new entries are added though the problem repeats itself. Does anyone know why this might be?

I was wondering if there is a simple way of deleting past entries from a drop down list for a pivot table. I have tested my spreadsheet and now want to create a 'blank canvas' for users.

I want to have a unique count field in my pivot table. I already read (via forum search) that this can only be achieved by adding an extra column to the database.

The problem is: I have no clue which formula to use for this column. Please have a look at the attached picture. Can someone provide me with a formula for this example?

I have a pivot that shows Patients, Invoices and charges. I want to throw Patient, Inv # and charge amount in the row area and put PatientId in the Page area as a count. It works fine except it double counts patients with more than one invoice...I want a unique patient count.

I am trying to find a way to count the total number of pivot fields in a pivot table so I can remove ghost pivot items that are no longer in the pivot table data. My code for this subroutine is as follows;

Sub RemoveGhostPivotItems() Dim ghost As PivotItem Dim pt As PivotTable Set pt = ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1) pt.ManualUpdate = True For Count = 1 To 10 On Error Resume Next For Each ghost In pt.PivotFields(Count).PivotItems ghost.Delete Next ghost Next Count pt.ManualUpdate = False End Sub

My code makes an assumption that I have 10 Pivot Fields or less. It would be nice to actually know the number of Pivot Fields so my "For Count" Loop would be more efficient. In otherwords;..............
