# Count Quantity Of Unique Combinations Of Multiple Columns

Apr 20, 2014
I have two columns in a spreadsheet, and I need to write a formula to determine how many times each combination shows up. Example:

SKU-A Location1

SKU-A Location1

SKU-A Location2

SKU-B Location1

SKU-B Location7

SKU-B Location7

SKU-B Location8

SKU-B Location8

SKU-B Location8

SKU-B Location8

I want it to have the data converted to be like this (with the third column being the the number of times that combination appears):

SKU-A Location1 2

SKU-A Location2 1

SKU-B Location1 1

SKU-B Location7 2

SKU-B Location8 4

I have a table with 6 columns (A to F) and multiple rows each, with cells containing words. Taking the words in any one cell from each of the columns in order from A to F will form a complete sentence each time. I need a solution to display all unique possible combinations in column G.

The number of rows is different for each column. A successful result in column G has to include cells from all columns (A to F).

I searched this forum and found a few analogous questions/solutions, but nothing close enough for me to apply to my case. I tried using a concatenation formula, but I have to manually edit the formula in each cell to get all unique combinations (and that would mean thousands of times). If I just drag the formula down it will increment all cell rows instead of one cell's row at a time.

Here's an example : all possible unique combinations.jpg

I need to count how many times a code appears over a 6mth period only on a single day. The data would look something like:-

1/1 2/1 3/1 4/1 5/1 6/1 7/1 8/1 9/1 10/1 etc

a b c a a b a a b b

If counting b the result would be 2 on the above 10 days as it appears on the 9/1 & 10/1 it would not be included. It is to be used to count the number of times somebody only appears on a single day over a period of time but not count them if they come back the next day.

I cant think of a way to do this using in built formulas (Countifs, sumproduct, etc) The example is basic and there could be up to 20 codes.

I have a spreadsheet with two columns:

The first one will always have a 'W' or a 'E'.

The second one will have a three digit code. Like this:

W 507

W 507

W 507

E 504

E 504

W 505

W 505

W 504

W 504

Is it possible to have output that show how many of each combination there is? Like this(for the example above):

W 504 2

W 505 2

W 507 3

E 504 2

Have a monthly report process in which I need to count to combinations of values in 2 columns. Example:

A 1

A 1

A 2

A 3

B 2

B 1

B 3

B 3

B 4

Count results: A&1 = 2, A&2 = 1, etc. I'd like to get a summary table of the results. I see how to use sumproduct to count combinations, but that requires a sumproduct formula for every combination. The 2 colums are lengthy and the contents vary each month, so building the formulas each month will be a fair amount of work. Is there another way?

I need a one formula solution to compare two columns for duplicates and count the number of matched pairs. Need to ingore blanks. Can have matched numbers or letters. Asterik denotes a blank (empty) cell. Also only consider the first matched pair if there are more than one matched pairs.

Col A Col B

a

b a

* b

c c

d y

x f

f z

f z

In this case I only want to consider a:a, b:b, c:c and f:f, resulting in the count of 4.

I've got no clue about all this, but I've had to get specific formula examples and fill in the blanks in order for my timesheet to work. There's just one final problem if somebody could please help.

This is a timesheet for a 5 day work week. I need to count the number of unique log numbers for a specific activity. The log numbers counted must be unique across the entire week, not just for each day, which means I want the formula to count the unique log numbers across multiple sheets.

The formula also has multiple conditions. I got 2 columns. The first part of the formula needs to verify a word, say, "split" and if it does it checks the adjacent cell for a unique log number. If both arguments are true, it counts the log as 1 unit.

Here is a working formula for only one page.

=COUNT(IF(D4:D29="split",IF(FREQUENCY(C4:C28,C4:C28)>0,1,)))

Here's 2 problems with this formula:

1. I will count if it encounters a blank cell in the Log numbers the first time (which will happen as not every activity we do has a log#), but it will stop counting if it encounters a second blank cell.

2. I don't know how to make it work across several sheets.

This is an alternate formula which works and skips the blank cells, but I don't know how to add the multiple condition of "split" and to have it work across multiple sheets. I just copied it Microsoft. As I said, I don't understand it, I just fill in the blanks.

SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(LEN(C4:C29)>0,MATCH(C4:C29,C4:C29,0),""), IF(LEN(C4:C29)>0,MATCH(C4:C29,C4:C29,0),""))>0,1))

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?

For example, each job has a specific ref number and within that job ref number there is a number of lines of data, some of which we ignore and some of which we include. Each job will have a planning time using an old methodology (Planning A), a planning time using a new methodology (Planning B) and an actual time. There are a few other variables too such as the category of work.

I am trying to count the number of each unique ref no. within the sub category of work I am looking at (there are circa 50 sub categories of work). Each ref no. will only have 1 combination of work cat and sub category.

For example: ....

I have the following example values in Column A and I want to concatenate each unique combination to a list.

A

B

C

D

Example necessary output:

A vs. B

A vs. C

A vs. D

B vs. C

B vs. D

C vs. D

Notice there are no duplicates (e.g., A vs. B / B vs. A). I have found many macros that will create all the duplicates but none that will create only unique.

I have a list for example:

apple

pear

grape

orange

i'm after some code that will create every possible combination of the list.

The examples i've found in the archives give all possible combinations of the same list in a different order

e.g apple, pear, orange, grape.......apple, orange, pear, grape.........apple, grape, orange, pear etc etc etc... THIS IS NOT WHAT I'M AFTER.

i'm after every possible combination starting right at the beginning with single words

e.g

apple

apple, pear

apple, pear, orange

apple, pear, orange, grape

pear, orange,

pear, orange, grape

orange,

orange, apple

etc etc you get the idea..... but i do not want repititions like

apple, pear.........pear, apple.

apple, orange, pear ...........pear, orange, apple.

I have this formula to give me the number of unique locations and it works fine for cell J1:

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(MATCH($B$3:$B$22,$B$3:$B$22,0),MATCH($B$3:$B$22,$B$3:$B$22,0))>0,1))

What I am trying to figure out is how to populate cells N4:N5 and N8:N9 for unique locations by Fruit & Vegtables by Area A and Area B. I just have some basic data for this example as the spreadsheets are 30,000+ lines long.

I have two ranges of data and want to count the unique number of times the values in column A occur if they have two values in column B. For Example:

ColA ColB

333310143333306344441014444430635555161246666101466661612466663063

I want to count the number of times value in ColA has the value 1014 AND 3063. My intention is to create a table that cross references the two

10143063161241014331306333116124112

I searched and found answers where multi criteria were in multi columns but I can't seem to find a solution to this means of find the unique count in ColA.

I have 15 different words that I want to order in as many ways as possible, but only 3 at a time.

So let's say the words are:

cat

dog

elf

clown

monkey

rock

bananas

(etc)

then I want a list that has all of these possible combinations:

cat dog elf

cat dog clown

cat dog monkey

cat dog rock

cat dog bananas

cat elf clown

cat elf monkey

(etc)

until all are listed. I understand there is a huge number, I don't mind having a couple of thousand as long as they are all genuinely unique.

I CAN have elf dog cat, elf cat dog, dog elf cat later on ... it's just the order that needs to be unique not the words in the phrase.

1.)

... Column H >=A1 and <=A2

2.)

... Column H <>"" and Column I <>"expired" and <>"" and Column I >=A1 and <=A2

3.)

... Column H <>"" and Column I ="expired" and Column H+120 >=A1 and <=A2

4.)

... Column H <>"" and Column I >=A1 and <=A2 and Column J =""

I'm having a problem with a spreadsheet in Excel. I have in column terras, codti problem and several cells that are repeated. I'm stating that terra appear only once, the information in column each issue should appear in different columns with the sum of how often they appear and codti according to terra.

In excel is best illustrated what I mean!

In total, 5267 lines and need to do this with all. You can do this in excel?

I am trying to count the number of unique entries in a sheet, that also satisfy 2 other conditions.

I've attached an example sheet : Example email report.xlsx

The result I need is: The number of unique values in column E, that also have NULL in column G and NULL in column I.

So, in the example, the result would be 7.

I know I can do this by conditional formatting and filtering, but would prefer a formula, and perhaps also a macro that I could apply as the number of rows in each sheet is up to 20000, and each month's sheet will be a different size.

I need to modify the underneath Count Array Formula to count unique values based on multiple conditions. I can get the formulas to work with NUMERIC values in Column A in the N1 & N2 tabs. However, I cannot get the formula to work when column A contains TEXT values in the TX1 & TX2 tabs.

I've attached the XL file for your review of the project.

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(('TX1'!$B$2:$B$15=B2)*('TX1'!$C$2:$C$15=C2)*('TX1'!$D$2:$D$15=D2),MATCH('TX1'!$A$2:$A$15,'TX1'!$A$2:$A$15,0)),MATCH('TX1'!$A$2:$A$15,'TX1'!$A$2:$A$15,0))>0,1))

I have two idential spreadsheets with several rows of items each with different packaging quantities, price break quantities and corrisponding prices next to each break quantity. I'm trying to build a discounting sheet on an idential page by using formulas that read off the price sell in the same relative position on sheet 2. Below is one row of sheet1 and the idential row of sheet2 - underneath the cells are the rules I would like incorporate:

I coordinate access requests for several contracts, and I have to list the approved accesses in a list where each line represents one person and one contract. For each access request, there will be an arbitrary number of persons obtaining access to an arbitrary number of contracts.

The input would then be as follows: Joe A and Jill B request access to contracts 1001, 1002 and 1003 ->

Joe A 1001

Joe A 1002

Joe A 1003

Jill B 1001

Jill B 1002

Jill B 1003

To automate this task, I have made a simple macro for generating a combination list of all persons having obtained access to a selection of contracts.

My macro worked well when I only wanted to list unique and independent list items, but now I have been asked to include each person's email address. How I can change my code so that only one email address is copied into my list for each person?

Code:

Sub AccessList()

Sheets("requests").Select

Dim rng As Range, c As Range

Dim rng1 As Range, c1 As Range

Dim rng2 As Range, c2 As Range

I need to list only the unique values in a range found in multiple columns. Some cells are blank. I need to list all the unique values in numeric and/or alphanumeric order in another column within the same worksheet. I would prefer non-array formulas, if possible. See the attached file.

In the attached table, I have 5 columns and 5 rows of values in the range B2:F6. The unique values, in order, are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. This looks simple and can be done manually if the file is small but I have 150 columns and 150 rows, thus the need for automation.

What formula should I use so that it will find the match with a 6-column table (with every other column containing the 'reference' items, so I can't use vlookup)

So that it will return the value next to the match

(instead of returning gibberish, will return a number instead)

Solved

Okay had that table setup that way because I needed separate tables ("linked" comboboxes")

So I just altered it so that the vlookup range changes dependent on the value of combobox 1.

I need a UDF to make live easier. I have a huge excel file and I need a final function (I suppose a UDF) that lists all values from a range spanning over multiple columns and rows. I would not really like a macro, since it does not update when certain values are changed.

It's part of a bigger functionality, but I need this one, really bad, since it spans over 6000 rows as the search range, and 7000 as the search values. In short:

I got to list all the unique values. They are in specific cells on worksheet 1 (A1:C5 and A25:C31) and should be listed on worksheet2 starting in field A2. As 'simple' as that. Nothing more, nothing less, just list all unique values of a certain range, which I specify. If it can not be done, by selecting the two fields separately, it's no problem at all to list all values in eg A1:C6000. Do note that some of the cells will be blank, and I don't need blanks. I only need the actual data sets. I added a sample excel file, that shows a representation of the data. I can not upload the actual file, since it's way too big (60 MB). So a sample file should give you the idea.

Three sheets:

Data 1: some value lists multiple columns

Data 2: some value lists, again multiple columns

Desired result: the result as it should be listed.

Want a single count of multiple columns based on the columns selected value. Data is in text format.

Have tried multiple COUNTIF statements and have tried using pivot table (Excel 2010) both only give me total counts for all. I think I need an OR statement somewhere, but not sure where?

In other words, if a single record has an "any" in the any fields or a "yes" in the yes fields, I want to to count that as one record.

Sample data:

Pegnancy Smoke

Pregnancy Alcohol

Pregnancy Marijuana

Pregnancy Powder

Stress Cigarettes

Stress Marijuana

Stress Alcohol

Stress Medication

[Code] .....
