how do to count the number of occurrences of a text string in a range of cells, where some cell have comma delimited entries?

I am trying to count the number of times a project number is identified in a column of cells. However, in any row in that column a cell may have multiple project numbers referenced, separated by commas.

Using countif Excel thinks that the cell has a different entry and it won’t include it in the count even though the criteria string is in the cell.

I am currently trying to count data in one cell separated by commas. The spreadsheet attached will make things look a lot clearer.

The "CURRENT" table is what I currently have and the "IDEAL" table is what I would like (but not hard-coded). Sheet 3 is where the meaningful data is. So for example, E4 has "CC-12" which is "Open" and "CC-11" which is "Closed". Therefore I would want there to be a "1" in cell F4 and G4 and a "0" in H4.

i have a spreadsheet that acquires data from 42 other worksheet and in a row of cells it has yes or no at the bottom of that row i have =COUNTIF(A2:A34,"YES"). But it will not count the yes' because the cells that it is trying to count all have formulas in them like =tues!A34 or similar is there a different formula i can use to still count the yes' even in a cell containing a formula?

How can I minus 1 from this COUNTIF. Basically counting non blanks - but it keeps counting the title as well, even when i change it to start at row D2 (it just jumps back to D1 next time). =COUNTA(RAW_DATA_2!$D$1:$D$215)

I am trying to use a countif formula to count how many students a teacher has. Here is the formula COUNTIF(fceteacher!C:C,E2) I am using a dropdown list to count how many students the teacher has.

I noticed that when I use countif to count cells with certain text value it works but up to some point when it returns way too much then (when there are generally more values matching I think). I don't know what is the cause ..formatting? some function limit ?

I've got a head-scratcher here that no one in the office can figure out (at my level anyway). I'm trying to count multiples of the same value within the same cell. For instance, if one cell's value is:

2, 2, 4, 5

I need my '2' count column to return two '2's. I'm using a wildcard because the cells will contain the numbers 1-7, some multiple times, and usually in different orders. The wildcard formula I'm using only picks up one if multiples of the same value are entered in one cell. Here's the formula:

This formula only returns a value of one in the '2' count column. It can't find the second '2' for some reason. I haven't been able to make COUNTA work either.

Ok so I am trying to streamline the Shirt ordering process at my work. I have made a table with Employee names as Column A, then Row 1 is shirt sizes from small to XXXL. The Cell values are going to be the colors people want. I want to total the number of each size/color combination. But someone may want more than one of the same color. For instance you would enter "BK, BK" if you wanted 2 black shirts of that size. This is where the issue with COUNTIF comes in. If a cell has the same value twice, it only counts it as one because counts the cells with an instance of a value, not the actual count of instances. Is there a way to make COUNTIF or a better function for this?

Using COUNTIF/COUNTIFS how to counting data with 3 mode ;

name property checking

[Code]....

I want to count with criteria based on adjacent value "name" column related with "checking" column

1) counting data "name" with "yes" criteria? 2) counting data "name" with "yes" & "no" criteria? 3) counting data "name" with blank "" criteria? 4) counting data "property" with criteria contains "name" and "yes" criteria

I'm trying to make a spreadsheet that will count the number of times a certain incident occurs, for a particular person, for a particular month. The attached spreadsheet is an example of what I need done.

For the attached spreadsheet, I need to find out how many times x employee has been late for x month, and how many times they've been late overall.

You can see one of the many tries I've attempted in the second sheet, but it doesn't seem to want to work. I have to be able to do this without VBA, because of signature issues.

I have a workbook that is going to be used as an offline 'database', recording issues being worked on and all the necessary details e.g. time logged, user, problem type, comments etc. A lot of this will include vba for automation and validation etc.

This will then be exported in comma seperated .txt format. So I don't want anyone putting a comma in a normal field within Excel. I'm sure I remember a way of blocking certain character entry a few years back when I was working on a similar problem. However, time is getting the better of me so is anyone able to help save me some time and point me in the right direction? Trying to find a suitable search string for this question is proving tricky.

I receive a report that is generated by another program. One column contains the address, city, state, and zip (5 and 10 digit) with no coma separators. Macro that would add comas before the Zip, state, and city so that I can use the text to columns tool in excel.

here is an example of the column

7935 COUNCIL PL SUITE 200 MATTHEWS NC 28105 223 WRENWOOD LN CHARLOTTE NC 28211 1125 BIRCH ST APT A ROGERS CITY MI 49779-1406 PO BOX 1376 NEW YORK NY 10018 428 C ST APT 301 SAN DIEGO CA 92101 4682 MISSION BV SAN DIEGO CA 92109

I need it to look like this:

7935 COUNCIL PL SUITE 200 ,MATTHEWS ,NC ,28105 223 WRENWOOD LN ,CHARLOTTE ,NC ,28211 1125 BIRCH ST APT A ,ROGERS CITY ,MI ,49779-1406 PO BOX 1376 ,NEW YORK ,NY ,10018 428 C ST APT 301 ,SAN DIEGO ,CA ,92101 4682 MISSION BV ,SAN DIEGO ,CA ,92109

Then I can run the text to columns and it will split the text into 4 columns.

I have spreadsheet that contains about 25,000 rows of client addresses. The columns/data is set up as follows for example

ColumnA...........ColumnB..................ColumnC Jim Smith..........123 Apple Road.........New York NY 10022-3456 Tina Jone..........456 Apple Road.........San Diego CA 12345-1111 Bob Smith..........789 Peach Lane........Seattle WA 59802-3344 Tim Smith..........4255 Lime Lane.........Missoula MT 59802-3333

I am having an issue with the vendor whom needs to do a mailing of all 25,000 clients. They have indicated that they require comma delimited data to create the mailing. In order to do this, I need to place a comma after the city and a comma after the state.

So as in the first row of data the cells looks like this:

New York NY 10022-3456

The vendor needs it to look like this:

New York, NY, 10022-3456

Is there a function and/or VBA procedure to put commas in where I need them?

I need to have them look like this: A1 cabinet hardware, cabinet hardware knobs, cabinet hardware pulls, kitchen cabinet hardware, amerock cabinet hardware, antique cabinet hardware. How do I do it? Im a COMPLETE Newbie when it comes to excell but I urgently need to figure this one out....how do I do it?

I have a column of contacts. Each contact has data spread out over many rows, most of which are blank. I would like all of the data spread out through the rows to be in one cell, delineated by commas (so I can import into another program).

Concatenating the cells works except that I end up with 20 commas for two strings of info.

Just so you understand I may have this: Mary red blue yellow purple Rob blue purple Trey yellow

and I want it to look like this

Mary red, blue, yellow, purple Rob blue, purple Trey yellow

i am trying to import an excel document and then copy over some columns to another worksheet from the imported worksheet, using a macro. Everything imports and copies over fine except for one column that has cells that comprise of a list of number separated by commas. When these cells get copied over some of the values retain the commas but some of them (specially when there are a lot values separated by comma) gets changed to this format

From: 1,229,124,012,441,230 To: 1.22912E+15

From: 1044,1048,1052,1053 To: 1.0441E+15

From: 1279,1282,1286,1295,1299 To: 1.27913E+19

From:926,929,938 To: 926929938

I am trying to figure out whats happening here! Is there a max number of letters this column can take and if it exceeds that value, excel converts them to this format? Or is the formatting gets changed to something else while copying and pasting?

I am working on a excel file that has a sheet that i want to convert to .csv. The sheet has formula's for the first three column that are warped an if statement that returns "" (blank) if certain conditions are not meet. However when i got to save the file as a csv i get a file with ",,,,,,," where there is no data. I would like to save csv and have only commas where this data.

Example When i convert a sheet like Firstname Lastname Password Tim Cats Bo3n9x

it saves as Firstname Lastname Password Tim Cats Bo3n9x ,,, ,,, ,,,

I have a large spreadsheet, within which i am trying to remove commas from all cells. I get the error 'formula is too long' when I carry out the search. Some of the cells are >1024 characters in length and contain dates, text etc.

I have the following syntax in B1: "1,2,3,5,6". and I need VBA to take the very last number out of that list, and increase by four in single steps. For example: before the code: "1,2,3,5,6" and then after it "1,2,3,5,6,7,8,9." The code must be flexible, though, because it will be running within another Macro, and it must work whether the last number in the list is 1 digit ("...4,5,8"), 2 digit ("...34,35,36") or 3 digit ("...111, 113, 114"). Those three examples would be changed into "...4,5,8, 9, 10, 11" "...34,35,36, 37, 38, 39" "...111, 113, 114, 115, 116, 117".

What i want to do is count but only if another cell meets a certain criteria,,

Let me explain better,,what i want to do is count the number of 'Completed' cases by each individual, i.e. count if the cell A1 = Completed and B1 = Kevin and the same for 'Pete'

I'm sure i need some sort of nested =IF AND formula but just can't think how the nesting should look.

B CompletedKevin CompletedPete CompletedPete Parked Kevin SubmittedKevin CompletedKevin Started John With AdviserPete With AdviserPete Started John Started John

I have a formula =IF(AND(F14=3,G14<2)=TRUE,1,"") which is in cell J14. I also want to 'add' to this formula an 'or statement' (I am not sure of the terminology, so taking a shot in the dark). So it would continue to complete the calculation as normal, but if there is a '1' in K14 it would also output in J14 as a 1

Can I use a CountIf formula to count coloured cells that have been formatted? I tried to use a CountIf formula to count the % but because some of the warning and failing % are different that would distort my results.

I've setup a worksheet whereby rows can be Autofiltered between a start and finish date via a Userform which (after much mucking about with UK/US dates) seems to be working nicely now. With the results of the Autofilter, i wish to count certain entries (in this case entries that are in column F) in the remaining visible rows.

The Workbook is about 'Cases' worked, and column F relates to how the 'Case' is cleared (Call, Letter, Referral). Effectively I want to be able to count 'Call', 'Letter' and 'Referral' entries once the Autofilter has been applied.

I have thousands of cells which contains 11 digit numeric number as primary key (suppose 19131804002). Now I want to count the cell if it contains first 4 numeric number is same (as here 1913).

I'm trying to count the number of times a pupil gets a detention which has been rescheduled.

In the main worksheet below I want to be able to count instances like the one on row 11 where John Smith has had a rescheduled detention.

I want to be able to connect this rescheduled detention to John Smith on a different worksheet in the same workbook. On the screenshot below I would like to have Column D as a running total of rescheduled detentions.

I have tried all sorts of permutations of the COUNTIF function but without success.

How do I write a nested COUNTIF formula ( assigning a value of 1 for each cell) for a range of cells that does NOT contain "", "OFF", or "REQ OFF" ?

For example:

A row of 20 cells (A1:A20), 5 are blank (""), 3 contain the text "OFF", 4 contain the text "REQ OFF", and the rest contain anything other than the three values just mentioned.

I need a sum number for all the cells in that row that contain any other value. In this example, the output value should be 8. Out of 20 cells in the row, a total of 12 cells had either "", OFF, REQ OFF, and the remaining 8 had some other value that did not equal those.

Some sort of COUNTIF(AND(... Can't seem to figure this one out.

I have a table of data that is laid out in multiples of two columns. I have attached a simplified example. Essentially all I need to do is count the contents of every second cell when it equals a specific value. If you look at my attached example it will be clearer. how I can do this using formula? (I don't want to use VBA in this instance).

I am tracking 3 different payment types, and the employee, customer and dollar amount for the transactions that can not be verified. All of this data is then transferred over the the "Summary" sheet. I found the Countif formula that will tell me how many times an employee names appears on the sheet, but I was wondering if it were possible to also calculate the dollar amount associated with those transactions.

I have attached the spreadsheet to better explain what I am talking about, but below is a very small example. I do not want to calculate the info on this page, but rather add another 2 cells next to where the number of unclaimed and the % of unclaimed are calculated on the "Summary" sheet. Sample spreadsheet2.xlsx

A B C D 1 Date EmployeeCustomer $ 2 1-Jan MonicaJohn Doe $65.00 3 2-Jan AshleyJane Doe $85.00 4 3-Jan MonicaJustin Doe $15.00 5 4-Jan MonicaJessica Doe $135.00 6 5-Jan AshleyJeremy Doe $100.00 7 6-Jan CheriJustine Doe $50.00 8 7-Jan CheriJace Doe $450.00 9 8-Jan JudyJackie Doe $50.00 10 9-Jan MonicaJake Doe $65.00 11 10-Jan JudyJennifer Doe$85.00

how to set up a formula that would count the number of numbers in a column, only if the cells before those cells are blank. In plain English: total the number of occurences in each column, provided the value in cellrow is the first occurence in that row starting at column A. E.G

A B C D John x x Dave x x Kyle x x Bob x x

Count would return under Column A, 1; under Column B, 1; (because row John has a value in AJohn it is ignored), under Column C, 2; under Column D, 0.

I am attempting to create a staffing calendar that will use conditional formatting to alert the coordinator by highlighting the cell when certain thresholds are reached.

The spreadsheet has three tabs, with 'Master' being the final copy.

In the 'Magic' tab, I was able to get it work with a rolling count but I am having trouble recreating it when the count is stationary and not updating itself line by line aside the person's name.

What I'm preferably looking to have happen is for the 'Name' to light up when it appears more than 3 times in a week in the Day fields, more than 1 time a week in the O/C field and more than 7 times a month in the Night field.

I am analyzing a quota schedule. I need to count the cells in a row until I hit a value in one of the cells in that row (lets say cell>=30). Then I want the formula to evaluate the next two cells in front of that cell to determine if either is >=30, if so then the formula counts up to the original cell. This will determine # of days out for a install or trouble call lets say.

I have messed with a combination of IF, CountIF, and Match statements and just seem to hit a dead end. Any thoughts, even if it is that I may need another approach, is welcome.

I am trying to count the number of time the 15th and the 28th of the month show up in Column A. Column A is in date format but not all cells have a date. In this example I am only looking for the 15th but in the end I want the combined count of both.

This formula gives me a count of 1 =(COUNTIF(TimeSheets!A1:A119,"3/15/2012")) These return 0 =(COUNTIF(TimeSheets!A1:A119,"*15*")) =(COUNTIF(TimeSheets!A1:A119,"*/15/*")) Or any other combination of wildcards with * or ?

Maybe there is something other than COUNTIF I can use.
