# Countif To Find Number Of Unique Values And Number Of Times Repeats Happen

Aug 20, 2013
I have a large amount of data and I'm trying to count how many unique values I have in one column. I also want to know how many times each duplicate appears. I tried using a pivot table but it's not working for me.

I also tried the following formula: =SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(H:H,H:H)>0,1)) but it's not quite working.

So i need a way to find the minimum number in a given set of numbers without there being multiple minimums. For example if you had 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 the minimum would be 1. If however you had 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5....i want excel to recognize there are multiple minimums (two 1's) and produce a warning (i realize this probably needs to be coupled with an if statement).

I am trying to come up with a macro that selects values from one sheet and inserts them into another sheet. The number of values will change each time based on the user's entry, as well as the number of times that each entry should be pasted.

For example:

Entry: X | Y | Z

Number of Times to be Inserted to New Sheet 3 | 2 | 1

Result:

X X X Y Y Z

I have spent a while trying to figure it out, however the best I can come up with is using an array, but I can only get one value from the array to paste multiple times:

(*Note: In my testing, I didn't insert into new sheet or set up the array to handle different values, I was just trying to get the basic idea to work)

Dim A(1, 3) As Variant

A(1, 1) = Range("C3").Value

A(1, 2) = Range("D3").Value

A(1, 3) = Range("E3").Value

[Code].....

I am trying to extract the number of times a name appears on a certain range of cells on a worksheet, now I can get this to work, but I am sure there is a better way I just cant get it to work!

=SUM(COUNTIF(sales1!$B$8:$F$11,A18),COUNTIF(sales2!$B$8:$F$11,A18),COUNTIF(sales!$A$8:$B$11,A18))

I have only used 3 pf the worksheets, but in time there could be up to 30.

I've got a set of data that I update once a month and the number of team members per team changes all the time. I'm trying to write a formula that basically says, if the date matches AND the manager name matches, count the number of team members.

In the attached sample if A2 and B4 are found in the data set, count the number of SalesReps they have. So I'm looking at Sarah for February 2013, she has two sales reps that sold something, but Katherine appears twice, so I'm not looking for a result of 3, the correct answer is 2. How do I write the formula?

A2 will look to the data range of A14:A23 and SarahK will look to I14:I23, but I want to count H14:23.

I have the following figures in my spreadsheet and I have been trying to use SUMIFS. However, I don't want to count values in a continuous way, rather than that, I need to count the values ONLY until the number that is being counted repeats.

Example: Spreadsheet from Column Q1 to Column Q6:

Q1 Controlling

Q2 8

Q3 8

Q4 8

Q5 8

Q6 8

On this case, the Excel would count the number 8 five times in this array. However, If there were more number just below the number 8, it would count them as well and that's not what I am looking for.

Q1 Controlling

Q2 8

Q3 8

Q4 8

Q5 8

Q6 8

Q7 5

Q7 8

What do I need is not to count them when the number being counted has stopped to appear eventhough it can be found at Q7.

For my needs the answer should be that the number 8 was counted 5 five times rather than 6.

I'm holding a Reverse Auction where people pay a dollar to place a bid, BUT the twist is they are giving me a number that they how will be the lowest number but it has to be the only occurrence of that number (greater than 0).

During the party people can guess as much as they want to pay. I think i'll use a spreadsheet with their names in column A and go out in the row with however many cells for how many numbers they guess (so there would be blank cells in the overall range of the whole list if one guy buys 10 numbers and another only 1, for example).

So, i need a cell at the bottom that tells me the lowest number that wasn't guessed more than one time.

I've found how to FIND duplicates and the lowest number but i don't know how to write it so that it discards the duplicates.

Is there a function that allows you to read column A for an ID (these may or may not include letters/numbers/"?", are non-sequential and are of variable lengths) and, if it is the first time that it has seen an ID column B will read "sample_1_arm_1", if its the second time it has seen an id it will read "sample_2_arm_1", etc? An example of what I am trying to do on a much larger scale:

id

event_name

C83-858

sample_1_arm_1

I have an excel sheet that has multiple rows for one PO number. I've created a row at the top to calculate all of the unique PO numbers in the sheet. However, I want to create another column that will give each unique PO number it's own ID number starting at 1. For instance:

Column B (PO Number)

4 - Counts unique values in B

219

219

219

220

220

221

222

222

Then in Column C I'd want

1 (unique number for 219)

1 (unique number for 219)

1 (unique number for 219)

2 (unique number for 220)

2 (unique number for 220)

3 (unique number for 221)

4 (unique number for 222)

4 (unique number for 222)

I have 12 columns of data. In those 12 columns of data I have 3 digit numeric IDs. I want to count the unique number of IDs for each row. I have about 14K rows.

What would be the best way to do so?

Some rules about how the data is stored. I have 12 columns of data with anywhere from 1 to 12 columns having data for each respondent. Data always fills left to right and never skips columns.

I have attached an example file that represents how the data is stored and the output I would like (Unique Count).

I've tried everything I know (which isnt that much to be honest. lol). Ive tried the frequency formula but that doesn't work the way I want it - I think its probably the wrong formula to use. I've also tried a pivot table but they always vex me. If a pivot table IS the way to go, could someone talk me through it step by step? (*the wizard is just as confusing as doing it yourself I find) ....

I will say exactly what i want.

I want to keep statistics of roulette.

More specifically, i want to count how many times a dozen lates to come.

The range from 1-12 is 1st dozen, from 13-24 is the 2nd and 25-36 is the 3rd.

I want to count among these numbers, how many times one of three dozens appear every 1 time, how many times appears every 2 times, .... until 20 times.

For example: I have put in a column 500 numbers from 0 to 36.

The output must be like this:

1st Dozen: Every 1 time: x

Every 2 times: n

Every 20 times: m

The same for 2nd and 3rd dozen.

I have time start and time end and the difference between the two times. In a third column I have profit and want to calculate the profit per hour. When I divide the profit with the time spent I get a very very high number. If I for instance type in 1 hour of work and profit 100, then I get profit per hour 2400. (profit/hours spent)

On a side note I am trying to get the numbers as 24 hours and not use am or pm and in the spread sheet I get these numbers but in the box at the top where you see the formulas etc. it shows as am and pm. I have uploaded an example.

I need to count the unique values in a list based on another value. i.e.

AB ___ Jones

AB ___ Smith

BC ___ Henry

AB ___ Jones

BC ___ Brown

BC ___ Henry

AB ___ Tomkins

For all the AB's in column 1, I need a formula that will give me all the unique names from column 2, in this case 3. I've tried adapting:

=IF(LEN(June!D5:D100),SUMPRODUCT(1/COUNTIF(June!D5:D100,June!D5:D100)))

but haven't been able to get it to work.

I have several columns in an excel sheet which contain values (eg. Names). The entered names can be unique or already exist in the column. I need to find out (using a function or macro) how many different names were entered. Duplicates shshould be ignored in the count.

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 have a file with a column containing a series of records where a reference number can be repeated several times. I want to create a formula that will count the number of unique reference numbers in the column.

However - and this is the tricky part - I need it to allow for when the report is filtered, i.e. something like a SUBTOTAL function which ignores the hidden values.

So, the column in the full report has 691 unique values across 2,200+ records. If I apply a filter the column only has say 78 unique values. Is there a formula that can calculate this?

Have numerous values in Col A. Col E extracts a list of unique values from that column.

In Col C, the Col A value has had characters added to it.

Need a formula to count the number of unique values from Col C which contain the same prefix from Col A, and place the result in Col F.

A sample workdook is attached with the desired result shown and highlighted in yellow.

I have been using this function to count the number of unique text values in a data set:

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(MATCH(B2:B10,B2:B10,0),MATCH(B2:B10,B2:B10,0))>0,1))

It works great if I want to count number of unique text values overall. However, I want to count the occurrences of unique text values if they meet specific criteria. (Like a countifs function would if it could count unique text).

In my workbook I have about 20 sheets (less in the attached sample), and on most sheets I’d like to query data for each day and find an average value based on the time and then copy that result into another sheet. I’m not sure if I’ll need 2 macro’s for this or if one can be used.

Here’s a quick description:

Assuming that I am currently in the sheet I want to run the macro, then I will either input “1:45” or “0:45” into a popup box, or I could always simply input the 1:45 or 0:45 in the code itself. I’m flexible

1:45:

If I input 1:45, then I’d like the macro to find the first 1:45 in Column B and the value in the same row in Column F will be used in the calculation. Once 1:45 is located, then the macro moves up to find 22:45 in Column B and the value in the same row in Column F will be used in the calculation.....

Column A is Department

Column B is EmployeeName

Column C is Hours Worked

Column D is WorkWeek

All columns will contain duplicates, though no particurlar row combination would be a duplicate. How can I count the number of unique values in Column B when the value in Column A = "MyDepartment"?

I have a column with unique identifiers (numeric) that are included in another column. I need to find this number in the column and pull the data from that column into a new one. For example:

Unique Identifier: 28530

Is included in this string: 10.1.8........28530_201_10-....

I need the content from the string pulled into a new column. It seems there would be a LOOKUP that would work, but I'm not able to figure it out.

=COUNT(

1/FREQUENCY(

MATCH($A$1:$A$50,$A$1:$A$50,0)

),

ROW($A$1:$A$50)-ROW(OFFSET($A$1:$A$50,0,0,1,1))

+1))

I'm looking to tweak this formula to count the number of unique values that occur at least 3 times.

So, imagine that A1:A50 contain 50 last names from the phone book, 27 of which are unique according to the formula above.

Now, further imagine that only 5 of these unique 27 last names appear at least 3 times.

I'm looking for the formula that returns 5.

And (like always), for simplicity and sharing reasons, I'm hoping to find a single formula that occupies a single cell, and does not rely on additional columns of intermediate information.

I am trying to fill a table of the last 12 values for the purposes of creating dynamic charts. I remember last time i used named ranges, offsets etc etc but been too long to remember how.

Ive attached a worksheet to explain it better.

I should probably mention, I want to be able to change cells C1 and C2 to update the values. Everything else wil be rather static.

Items in Column A1 are calculated by (B2/4+5)*1.4 Items located under the columns 2000, 3000, 4000, etc... 10,000 are calculated by taking the top number, eg 2000/(A1 cell value)+the column B number. 2000/7+0 = 286 (rounded numbers)

I need to find an way to look up for x number (2000,3000,4000, etc...) find the smallest number in that column and then return the value in column A1.

Cell

I have attached an example. If I have a set of numbers such as the one attached, is it possible to create a formula that will show me all the combinations of numbers that add up to 55.52? In the attached I have highlighted in different colours all the number combinations that add up to 55.52. The numbers highlighted in blue appear within more then one combination. Is there a formula that can do this for me, instead of randomly adding numbers hoping they add up to 55.52.
