Is there a way to use the COUNTA function in cell A1, that will return the total number of cells containing text in the rest of row 1, BUT, will start the count over after a blank cell.

EXAMPLE: A2, A3, A4 all have text added on a daily basis. The value returned via COUNTA in A1 = 3 (after the third day). However, A5 is blank, then A6 gets text on the 5th day, and now I need the returned value in A1 via the COUNTA function to = 1, because we started over after a blank cell.

I am trying to produce VBA code that will perform the CountA function on a variable number of lines in a column. My macro first sorts the worksheet by department number and then inserts 2 blank rows when there is a change in departments. Most departments have several rows of data, but some may have only 1. In column N of the first blank row following each department, I want to count the number of rows for that department.

I'm using the SUM, COUNTA and COUNTIF functions in a macro. The SUM and COUNTA works but the COUNTIF function does not return results.

Sub B_Test() Dim myRange Dim Results Dim Run As Long myRange = Workbooks(1).Worksheets("Master").Range("S6", Range("S6").End(xlDown)) Range("M3") = Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(myRange) myRange = Workbooks(1).Worksheets("Master").Range("D6", Range("D6").End(xlDown)) Range("D3") = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountA(myRange) End Sub

I have tried countless ways to rewrite the COUNTIF line with no results or compiler errors returned. Originally had problems with the SUM and COUNTIF function and found that column formating was the problem. After clearing all column formats, the SUM function promptly began working but the COUNTIF keeps eluding all my efforts. The column which the COUNTIF is pointed to contains values of 0 to 500. Only values greater than 0 are to be counted.

I'm trying to create a report to show daily statistics for internet traffic. I have a large table showing a daily breakdown of performance, a table showing combined cost for all "Mondays", "Tuesdays" etc in the month and I also want a table to show the "average" performance for a typical "Monday", "Tuesday" etc.

The report will be used on a daily basis and I realised that until there is a full compliment of data the daily averages table would be inaccurate as it will be dividing the overall total for each day by the total number of occurances each day has in a typical month. This is wrong because if we are only halfway through the month then we will be dividing by days that haven't arrived yet.

A cell that will count an entry in another cell, within a range of numbers. EX: cell g1 will count the entries that range from 1000 to 1999 and 5000 to 5999 and 7000 to 7999. cell h1 will count the entries that range from 2000 to 2999 and 6000 to 6999 and 8000 to 8999. So if i had 6 cells with the following entries:

I am using the following formula to calculate the number of responses:

=COUNTIF([Cleanliness of Environment:],"None of the above")

However, I only want the number of cells which contain words other than "None of the above". The formula is counting empty cells. Is there a way to weed out the empty cells and receive a tally of only cells with words other than "None of the above" in them?

I understand the non blank cells part of Count A but not the additional values part. I have looked at the examples in teh MS help and it doe not help at all really.

Say there are two changing values in a spreadsheet: A row reference, and a column reference, called sRow and sCol.

sRow and sCol are integers, and they are also changing values.

I want to know how to find how many cells have something in them on row R, starting from column C to infinity (To the right). But the problem is that R and C change sometimes, so I have to make some sort of dynamic CountA formula.

I know I have to use CountA() to do this, but I don't know how to make the range reference just from two integers. What I have tried so far is CountA($sCol$sRow:$sRow), but this does not work. How do I properly format this formula?

I've tried many variations but I can't seem to find a solution - I hope you can help. I'd like a formula that will ideally achieve the following:

IF B5:F5 all contain the letter y then return "Pass" IF B5:F5 AND G5:K5 all contain the letter y then return "Merit" IF B5:F5 AND G5:K5 AND L5:K5 all contain the letter y then return "Distinction" IF B5:F5 is blank return blank IF there are Y's in B5:F5 and the total < 5 return "Fail"

I did a sample sheet to show the desired output but don't know if this forum supports attachments.

I've long wondered what's the difference between these two formulae - COUNT() & COUNTA(). Even if I apply COUNT() function on a range of cells with intermittent blanks, it still returns the count of the values in the range. How different is this from the COUNTA() function?

I have a sheet with 2 columns. First Column lists sizes of Devices. Second colum lists a servername. Example:

A B 30 server_a 30 server_a 65 server_a 65 server_a 45 server_b 45 server_b 15 server_b

What I want to do is a device count, not device sum on a criteria based on Column B.

For instance whenever column B equals servername A, then count how many devices it has.

This would equal 4 instead of 190 which is the sum of the devices. I can do a sumif statement, very easily, but I don't want a sum, I just want a count.

I have using the following Formula: =COUNTA(A3:A7,A10:A14,A17:A21,A24:A28,A31:A35) Basically is counts how many week days there are in a particular month. Now I have a cell (B47) that counts how many Bank Holidays are in that month. I am having trouble using the formula then minus B47. I must be missing something really simple.

I am trying to use =COUNTA(A25:A500) to retrieve the number of non blank cells. Only problem I am having is that the cells that are blank are also using a formula to gather its data. The cell would be blank but the formula is still there, so using =COUNTA(A25:A500) returns all these cells with the formula also.

I've got two sheet's in a workbook. The first contains data and is setup with dates in column A, day of the week in column B, and values going across by day in column's C through H. As an example it looks as follows:

I have a formula counting non blank cells in another sheet 'Mem' I know there are 21 entries in Column M, which it used to show as the result. Today it shows 0. The 21 entries are still there.

Code: =COUNTA(Mem!$M:M)

The cell containing the formula is B6. The bottom bar of Excel has: Ready Circular:B6

I am trying to write a VBA code that does the following: The table below provides a sample of the Source (i.e how we start off with) and the Result (i.e how the format needs to look like). More specifically, for each product in 1st column that has a number in blue and or red column i need a row inserted immediately below (hence the counta function to indicate how many empty rows to insert). The end result should have a separate line for each blue/red colour depending if there is a number shown in the source data. Obviously the result should be displayed in another sheet (i.e sheet2).

I am a novice excel and VBA user, but have been working the past few days on a project to create a data entry form (using Excel 2003 on WinXP). I have the userform created and the textboxes working fine for inputting data into the spreadsheet. I also have comboboxes set up, and if I directly input data into them, they also input that data. So far, so good.

(problem)

Here is my issue: I want the comboboxes to use dynamic / variable ranges, so I have been trying to set up the ranges by defining them as names. I've come across a bunch of examples, but none of them seem to work (all produce an error that the formula is not correct or instead seem to reset the name to just the first cell when I input it).

My sheet is called Dropdown Lists, and there is a column here for each combobox. Each row in a column has the options I'd like used for that combobox. So I am basically trying to name a range as the entries in just one column.

This is what I have been working with most recently in the Name - > Define dialog box that according to everything I read -SHOULD- be working:

This produces an error, that when you hit OK highlights "$A$3" - and if I remove the $ symbols, it skips then to the "$A:$A" until I remove THOSE $ symbols, and then excel will accept it, but when I go to the name, it only highlights one cell. I thought maybe that was OK, but when I tried putting the name into my rowsource, nothing happened - so apparently not.

Questions:

(main question) - Why will this not input correctly when everything I read suggests this format? Am I not handling the space in the worksheet name correctly (with ' ')? Sometimes excel will automatically add in " " between = and OFFSET and the closing at the end, but this also has not helped. One source I read even recommended taking off the = at the start (also did not help). Am I missing something here?

(follow-up questions) - Why are you supposed to use "$" before the cell references anyway? I've looked for an answer but haven't found one yet... is that for when you make cell references to cells on an external worksheet?

- What is the "Add" button for on the Name -> Define dialog box? I'm confused to if I am supposed to use this to add the name to the list of defined names, or just hit OK?

- At the bottom of the Name -> Define dialog box is the "Refers To:" field with the formula. On the right of that you can hit a button to go to what seems like another (smaller) formula input box. Why would I ever use that when I could just type it in on the previous box? There is no label for it so I am guessing here - but does it actually do something else (like you need to go to that smaller dialog to input new formulas and the previous box is only for -viewing- formulas, or?)?

I need to do two things in my Excel spreadsheet: 1) I want it to insert a blank row everytime a value in the 1st column changes. 2) In the blank lines, I want to do a COUNTA for each of columns G through N. If I can get the program to insert the blank rows...they will not be a set # of records apart...some will have 3 records & some might have 17 records. Is there a way to automatically cause #2 to happen instead of having to choose the function icon and then tell Excel the first and last cells in each range?

how to play with data ranges and define names for charts to automatically update them by using the formula offset + counta. An example would be: =OFFSET(Sheet1!$B$7,0,0,COUNTA(Sheet1!$B$6:$B$37)-1).

So, the problem comes when there is a need to select a data range which is not that well defined like $B$6:$B$37. So, I need to import data regularly into my workbook, this data will be imported right below of the last cell with values.

Now, how would I manage to automatically select the data range from this new import for my chart? See attached example. I have highlighted in Yellow a potential import... there is no data in there so feel freel to fill it with any numbers you like.

I have tried to use a vlookup to find Country+Programme+Year (cat1 in the example) in the 'counta' part of the formula above. But I get lost,as a vlookup would retrieve a value and would not be useful for the data range?

I am working with output that I copied from SPSS into Excel. I want to use "counta" to count the number of cells in particular rows or columns that have data in them.

I have used "counta" successfully in the past. However, this time it is counting the blank cells as well as those that contain data. When I click on one of the "blank" cells in Excel, nothing shows up in the formula bar.

I have the following formula that works fine until someone uses the space bar to clear a cells contents

=COUNTA($D11:$AI11)

When the space bar is used to clear a cells contents the COUNTA statements includes the space in the count. How do I count the number of cells with content and exclude the space bar space in a cell?

I'm having trouble using the worksheet copy command in a VBA subroutine. I have the following line in my code:

[Code] ........

When I step through my code and execute this line, the sheet is copied as expected and put in the correct place, but then instead of the next line of code being highlighted, the pointer jumps to the first line of a function (in a different module) in my code.
