I'm on Excel 2003 and have a sheet to track people who have read my emails. I want to know the answers to the questions below. I've included a fake sample to show what I'm looking at. The number of cells in each column is much higher and not the same per column. I've tried variations of MATCH, VLOOKUP, SUMPRODUCT, etc. but haven't found a good way to set up a formula.....

My Excel program (Excel 2010) currently has several columns and each column looks for and pulls data from a specific file on my computer. Then I need to delete any duplicate data entries, count the number of unique entries and track the changes through a chart. I have everything done except I cannot figure out (or find on the internet) a way to search in multiple columns (more than 2) and delete just the duplicate cells. I want to delete the cells in a way where there is one left. For example if the code 12gf is duplicated three time, I want to be left with one 12gf (it doesnt matter what column the original one is left in). Additionally, column length changes and they are not sorted. I have attempted to attach an image of an example file below.

I have a Workbook with multiple sheets with Data in them. I would like to Count the number of duplicate values between the sheets.

For example.

Sheet one has a list of case references Person A is dealing with.

Sheet two has a another list of case references Person B is dealing with however the also have a list of case reference's they are monitoring as part of a project.

Sheet 3 has got the total number of case references each Person is dealing with, it also contain the total number of cases Person A&B together are dealing with. however i need to find the total number of cases Person B is monitoring that Person A also has so that the total number of cases is the true number of total cases with no duplicates involved.

(References begin with VB then have a string of numbers afterwards and I would like to know the total number of cases the Person B is monitoring as well so these need ot be calculated).

how i can set 'Data Validation' to stop me from entering duplicate values across multiple columns, i can set it for a single column i.e. A1 to A100 but i am after this but for something like A1 to H100.....?

I am currently using this formula in Data Validation: =COUNTIF($A$1:$A$100,A1)=1

I need something to do this but for multiple columns.

Fixed data labels over a number of columns and i want to count the number of times 2 of these appear however when ive tried to use the countifs function it will only count if in the first colum of the range selected and for example if A2 says 'FRANCE' and D1 'RED'

Ie i have been using COUNTIFS('Datasheet'!BB:BE,A1,'datasheet'!BE:BH,D1)

I have a sheet with data which is all sorted by columns.

What I want to be able to count the occurrence of an instance when 2 cells in the same row (but in different columns) match my given criteria.

Ive been using 'countif' to count the instances in a single column and I am now aware that this is about all it can be used for.

An example of my data is:

A B 1 a 1 a 1 c 2 d 2 c 3 b 3 b 3 c 3 d

What I want to be able to count for example is how many times '3' & 'b' occur on the same row (in this case the answer would be 2).

Im not very good with pivot tables and have tried but have not managed to find an answer. I really hope that someone can help as Ive been working on this probelm for days and quite frankly its doing my head in :-)

I have an excel worksheet which is having duplicate values in multiple columns, i want to remove those duplicates and should return unique values... how can i do that... My Excel Sheet looks below....

I have unit measures that are converted across four columns (FT, SQFT, SQM and SQY).

THere are three units in rows (BOX, Skid and Roll). I am trying to identify in a column labeled "Duplicate Volume" with a formula stating "YES" if there are duplicate numbers (volumes) in any of the four conversion columns listed above. I tried to attach an excel file here but the system will not accept it. Hopefully the diagram i make below will be enough to understand the concept:

I am not sure if Excel is able to do this but basically I am looking to find out which rows have some duplicate values. I have just read this back and it doesn't make a great deal of sense so I have attached an example spreadsheet.

Basically I am looking to find if E1:G1 duplicates further on down the list, hope this makes a bit more sense with the example attached.

For my job I have to take hundreds of codes and compare them to other codes. For example, in column A I'll have 453 codes, in column B I'll have 352 and in column 97. I want to find common codes for all three columns. Sometimes, I'll have just two columns and sometimes it's multiple columns. I have tried a few formulas but nothing works that well. Any formulas or MACRO

I am using MS Office 2010. I want to count---on multiple sheets---the number of times that a given cell is greater than another cell if and only if a third cell is equal to a given value. I want to do this for 4 sets of data on each sheet. I thought I had it figured out with this formula---

but it returns a value of zero each time. Clearly there is an error in the formula.

Here is some background: -- $H$1:$H$43 is a block of cells that has the names of the sheets in the workbook -- E1 and F1, G1 and H1, I1 and J1, K1 and L1 are the four groups of cells that I am comparing. In the entire workbook, I want to add 1 (counting function) only when: R1=2 AND E1>F1 or S1=2 AND G1>H1 or T1=2 AND I1>J1 U1=2 and K1>L1 on each appropriate sheet in the workbook.

I have a spreadsheet with columns A to W populated with data and 2470 rows Column A has email addresses in it (2470 rows) Column B has email addresses that are bad and are duplicated of those found in Column A there are only 345 of them in column B.

I would like to compare columns A and B and highlight the email addresses in column A that are also found in column B.

OR: If column A has a duplicate found in column B I would like the word delete to be inserted into column C of that row so I can review and then delete later.

I'm looking for a Conditional Formatting formula that will check two columns before highlighting the duplicate rows. I need it to be conditional formatting because I know nothing about writing macros or vba (what-ever that is?). Data is entered into Columns A, B, and C. I need to check both column A and C before it highlights the duplicates, based on those two columns. (The format only unique or duplicate values checks only one column.) I have attached an example, but this is just an example, as I have hundreds of lines to go through on the original. (For this example, Row 2 and Row 7 are the duplicates I need highlighted.)

I have a data set which has 6 columns (and lots of rows). Every row is different but I want to aggregate them based on 4 fields and then find the average of the numerical column for the results. I basically want to Group based on 4 fields and find the average of the 5th field.

My initial approach was to introduce a column which is a combination of the 4 fields I want to group by, simply in the Excel file (=A2&B2&C2&D2) and then find duplicates of that. I have a solution for this in VBA but when importing new data sets in this method is very slow, so I want to be able to do the whole thing in VBA.

I found this great macro to use in a spreadsheet I'm trying to transpose from rows to columns, however, I need a place holder for blank cells: [URL] .....

I was able to use the macro in the last post by Ochenden but the blank cells need to have a placeholder.

How to change the macro or come up with a different script for me to use?

Attached is how I need the spreadsheet to look.

Script I used:

Sub aaa() Dim OutSH As Worksheet Set OutSH = Sheets("Sheet2")

I am looking for a macro to look in Sheet 1 column A and compare the values to Sheet 2 column O. When it finds a duplicate I want it to delete the entire row in sheet 1. I dont want to have to manually sort anything if that's possible.

Column A contains "Power","Instr","EHT", Column AJ contains "25M32", "25M35","25M39"and the a date is in column AE. I need to count how many time the date appears in AE if column the cell in A is "Power" and the cell in AJ is "25M32".

I have a large list of items and I want to be able to count and sum up the cells based on multiple conditions. Lets just say for example I have a list like this, also the list updates and adds more rows for more information, so its not confined.

xxx Open xxx Complete yyy Complete yyy Open xxx Complete xxx Open

I want to be able to count how many xxx are Open. I assume it involves either CountA, CountIF, If, And but I keep getting errors when It searches for text. I can use CountA and have it search for text of a single columb just fine, but I cant do contitions based on multiple columbs with just a cell formula.

I am looking for some code that will use A,B,C as filters to find duplicate cells, and if duplicate found, there should be deleted the duplicated row (but not only the row from a,b,c column, but the whole 8 cells from that row - A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H).

As filter I would like to be used A,B,C columns.

EXAMPLE: BEFORE A B C D E F G H Kristijan Markovski 26,2,1992 1389 Prilep Prilep Mice Kozar1 1 Kristijan Markovski 26,2,1992 1389 Prilep Prilep Mice Kozar01 1 Kristijan Markovski 26,2,1992 1389 Prilep Prilep Mice Kozar001 1 Bojan Smileski 5,2,1992 1356 Prilep Prilep Borka Taleski 1

AFTER A B C D E F G H Kristijan Markovski 26,2,1992 1389 Prilep Prilep Mice Kozar1 1

Bojan Smileski 5,2,1992 1356 Prilep Prilep Borka Taleski 1

I have a spreadsheet, similar to the one attached, that monitors deliveries. The reasons for deliveries not being made on time are merged across to have one reason per delivery vehicle.

I am trying to count the number of times a reason occurs, but utilizing a COUNTIF function it will only count a merged cell as one count, rather than per each delivery.

In the attachment at the bottom of the page I want to count the symbols in the blue selected area when they are apear into the cells in the red selected area. The catch is that I want to treat the each of the "RED", "BLUE", "GREEN" as a single colum so to speak and have a value "1" or "0" apear in the back circled area.

Eg, For MrB there is nothing in the "RED" column (B7:D7) so that gives a value of zero in cell cell "P7". In the "BLUE" column (E7:G7) there is a circle which will give a value of "1" in cell "Q7". In the "GREEN" column (H7:I7) there is a double circle and a square symbol and that will return a value of "1".

I hope this makes sense. I have tried to do this with counta, but that will also count cells when a space bar is used and that makes it difficult to make sure that I am getting the right info. I also tried VLOOKUP and COUTIF but this is beyond my level.

I have a list of brands in one worksheet that are abbreviated (Brand 1 = "AB-"). In another Worksheet I have a list of products that start with various brand abbreviations (ex: AB-12345, BP-12345), and in another column on the worksheet I have codes that represent certain characteristics of that style ("1"=flat shot), "2"=shot on model, etc). Now what I want to do is count how many instances I have of products that begin with "AB-" and have a "1" in the other column so I can get a count of how many flat shots i have to do for that brand.

So far I am using the below code to get a TOTAL count of products that start with "AB-", but i cant figure out how to write it so that it checks additional criteria in another column.

A3 contains the text "AB-" and 'photo list'!G2:G5001 contains the list of products that may or may not contain the text string "AB-". Column S (not shown in this code) contains the codes for how to shoot. Hope someone can make sense of this and give me a hand.

I need to fill the following table in another sheet counting the amount of Blank cell there are according to Month, Team and if the name row is filled. I have tried Sumifs, sumproduct,countblank typing them in as arrays but don't seem to be getting anywhere

my spreadsheet has duplicate serial numbers in column A and the corresponding row in column B has mutliple descriptions for the same serial number. I need to combine those descriptions into 1 cell rather than having multiple rows for the same serial number. is there an IF formula that I can combine with a concatenate that will capture what I need?

What i'm trying to do is i would like to compile in 1 column all duplicate values from multiple cells.

ex. A1 to 10 is numbered 1 to 10 respectively, B1 to B10 is numbered 6 to 15 respectively. which means in A1:B10 the duplicate values are 6,7,8,9,10. i could like these number to show automatically in C1 to C5.
