In the following extract, I would like to have today's date placed into Col K when an entry is made into Col J.

Entry into Col J is from a validation list of 3 options. What I desire is that when one of these options is selected ("Complete"), then I would like today's date to be written into Col K.

Currently Col K has a validation list which comprises dates from 1st of each month from July to June.

I need a fixed date as text preferably, so was thinking the VBA function "Date" on a Change Workbook Sub.

The information is currently part of a Table in Excel 2007 that has about 500 records.

I am trying to count the number of times that data is in a field and in any field the date is greaert than today's date. This date field could be blank and that is where I am having the problem.

Example

See Attached

I have a column formatted as a date. I would like to filter out all rows which have a blank date value. I don't see any blank value to select when I try to select auto-filter for that row. Any suggestions?

I would like to filter out the blank values because I found that if I pivot on the data and there are blank values in the field, I can not use the group option for that field.

Couting Unique Entries

I've included a sample worksheet ...

i need to count the number of used entries in a range.

so fex the range is A1:A10 but there are only 2 entries what i search is the number 2

is there a VBA function or so doing that.

ps i have this range.Rows.Count but this is counting me the length of the range even if there are no entries..

Column A contains names

Column B their unique ID number

Column C the date a transaction occurred

How can I count the number of entries between two dates i.e. 1-31 April regardless of duplication or anything? I've tried a few things mentioned in other threads but none seem to work.

My spreadsheet contains two text columns that represent dates and times; 11/21/2007 and 0935 for example. The rows are populated with the date and time for every event during a 48 hour period. A single worksheet may contain up to 3,000 events (rows).

How do I create a subtotal for the number of events in each of the forty-eight 1-hour periods?

Colum A

Ticket No.

150258, 150268, 150269

150259

150249, 150266, 150271, 150279

Colum B

No. of Stillages

3

1

4

I have two colums. In A1:A4 are ticket numbers of products made. In B1:B4 are the number of stillages that the tickets relate to. What i am trying to work out, is a formula that will calculate the number of stillages produced based on the fact that each ticket number begins with "150". I have tried using COUNTIF, MATCH and FIND functions, but when i does work, will only return a value of 1.

I am trying to determine wether there are duplicate entries within a range and have then counted also. Example:

I have a list if zip codes and I want to find out how many of each zip code are there. If I have a list with:

12345

12345

12345

12346

12346

12347

I want to have it tell me there are 3 of "12345" and 2 of "12346", possibly next to the entry?

12345 3

12345

12345

12346 2

12346

12347

What I am trying to achieve using the example below:

ID Subject 1 Subject 2 Subject 3

1 Italian French German

2 Italian Art Physics

3 German French Italian

4 French Italian German

the result:

Italian French German 3

Italian Art Physics 1

As in the example, the combinations of Italian, French and German where counted, irrelevant of whether the subjects are in 2nd, 3rd or 4th column.

I tried to do this task by creating a pivot table but there are so many permutations and subjects that it would take me a long time to add the combinations.

I'm looking for a way to count entries of numbers per day of the week within a date range. Example

Start End Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa Su TOTAL

2/10 2/23 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 12

3/1 3/31 1 2 1 1 1 1 2 40

I don't know if that possible in excel or its to much

I need to count the number of unique names (column A) on 3 separate worksheets. Each worksheet represents a facility that people visit. It is possible that the same person will visit all three facilities. If this is the case I want to only count them once, even though they may have numerous entries on each.

I need to get the same result as if I was to copy and paste all of the names from three spreadsheets on to one (which isnt an option) and then count unique names. To do this on one sheet I have been using =sumproduct((A1:A100<>"")/countif(A1:a100,A1:A100))

I have a column of dates and want to count how many times there is an entry for a particular month. example:

(column D)

7/4/2009

7/13/2009

7/22/2009

8/1/2009

8/6/2009

9/15/2009

I want to be able to coun (countif?) how many times there is a July listing, August listing, etc.

=COUNTIF(D3:D20,">=7/1/2009")+COUNTIF(D3:D20,"<=7/31/2009")

=SUMPRODUCT(--(D3:D20>="7/1/2009")*(D3:D20<="7/31/2009"))

I have made them arrays.

Im trying to make an excel spreadsheet for work for working out how many of each product and individual staff member has sold

I have 2 columns one with staff and one with what they sold e.g.

Staff Member - Sales

Staff 1 - prod A

Staff 2 - prod B

Staff 3 - prod A

Staff 2 - prod C

Staff 1 - prod A

and have another table, the one that i want to populate, that looks like this

Staff 1

prod A =

prod B =

prod C =

Staff 2

prod A =

prod B =

prod C =

etc

I cant seem to find a function that will work out how many of prod A staff 1 has sold and how many prod B he has sold etc

i have tried things like countif but i cant seem to get them to link the staff member and sales boxes together, the only way i can think of is to write down an equation for each line, but i have hundreds of sales and that would takes ages

I run an online golf tour and I need a little help with the coding of my handicap excel sheet. (For any golfers out there this is a custom handicap system, not the R&A version).

First I'll explain what I have, then my problem.

I have from left to right the following, Name, Scores, Worst Score, 2nd Worst Score, Average, Hcp. (There are other columns but are not important here)

The Scores columns record each round played, so at the moment we only have 10 columns with data as its the start of the season. I currently find the "Worst Scores" from the 10 columns, as they are all relevant at the moment. My problem will arise when I get over 12 columns of data. From that point on I need to find the "HIGHEST 10" from the "LAST 12" entries.

Easy you might say, BUT the last 12 rounds played could be spread over 100+ columns and every row could be different.

Example, Player 1 could have scores in column A to AB and then in AD to AE. Where as Player 2 could have scores in every alternate column.

I'm assuming I'll have to set up some form of count to count the cells that have data in them until I get to 12. Then extract the ones I dont need.

My question is, How do I find the last 12 column cells used in any row AND extract the highest 2 from those 12?

I need to generate a report that indicates how long it took a vendor to respond, and indicate if the time was less than 2 hours.

I'm having trouble with a formula that will indicate how long it took for the vendor to respond during business hours (8-5 monday through friday). I can easily calculate the total elapsed time, but I'm at a loss on how to account for the after hours time period.

Would this be better handled with VBA?

I am trying to count the number of indentical entries in my spreadsheet. I got the conditional formatting to color indentical entries that have more than 2 entries. I need to know how multiple entries are in my spreadsheet. I am using =COUNTIF($A$1:$A$10000,A1)>2.

Summary sheet has been set up so that any additional records added to 'Monthly Budget' will be copied using the formula below (kindly provided by Cheeky Charlie yesterday):-

=IF(ISBLANK(INDEX('Monthly Budget'!$A:$G,ROWS($1:1),COLUMNS($A:A))),"",INDEX('Monthly Budget'!$A:$G,ROWS($1:1),COLUMNS($A:A)))

I have set up a unique entry count on 'summary sheet' which is currently showing 5. If I add a new name 'Jim' to the 'Monthly budget' sheet, this is copied on the 'summary sheet' however the unique entry count remains at 5.

Every other line is the planned production and the others are filled in after as the actual production

I have a sumproduct formula right now that looks if the line is considered planned production and then if there is a number greater than 0 planned on that day. The idea is to tell me the number of Stations scheduled to run that day.

Here is my problem- if a station is running two different products it gets counted twice.

I am trying to find a way that once a station is counted it only gets counted once even though they are on seperate lines.

Attached is an example of what I have with the formula and below that is what I am looking for

I'm trying to create a worksheet with only one unprotected cell (simple enough!) and I want to base calculations in other protected cells on a running total of how many times a value has been entered in my unprotected cell. Re-entering the same value would need to be counted.

First enhancement would then be a means of resetting the counter.

Second enhancement would be to check for a valid entry and only then increment the counter.

I have to input data into "ANYDATA" field. Since I need this input to be 100% accurate, I would like my operator to input it TWICE. E.g. 1st input - Obama 2nd input- Obama. Only if BOTH the entries match will the data move into ANYDATA field, else the field becomes blank once again, and the operator has to re-key twice again. In example above, if he had input 2nd time as Obame, then he will have to repeat the process. Can anyone pls help me create suitable formula/ field settings...Thx! Preferably, I would NOT like to create two dummy fields "ANYDATA1" and "ANYDATA2" with corresponding entry in "ANYDATA" if both match.

p.s. Need this to be done using MS-Excel only.

Counting Unique text entries in a sheet with a condition ..

View 14 Replies View RelatedI'm trying to create a questionnaire and in each question you got to rank the answers 1, 2, 3 and 4 according to your preferences.

So I'm trying to use data validation to allow ranges between 1 and 4 and at the same time I'm trying to use =countif($B$20:$H$20,B20)=1 to prevent repeating selections but my problem is that with the data validation tool I can only select one of those options either allowing whole numbers between 1 - 4 or allowing custom and using =countif($B$20:$H$20,B20)=1.

Is there a way to do both?

I am looking for either vba or excel method to prevent duplicate entries across multiple columns. The data validation only works when it is input manually by the user and not when it is generated by the formula

What i am trying to do ( assuming " | " are column dividers and each new line is a row)

abc | 2 | bac | 3 | cab | 4

bac | 3 | abc | 2 | cab | 4

abc | 2 | bac | 3 | cab | 4

I'm trying to make a sheet that will allow users to either pick from a drop down box, or if the choice they want isn't there, to input data in the same cell. That part I have got. What I can't do is figure out how to have excel add that user input to the list of options, so that they next time the drop down box is used, that "user input" will appear as an option in the drop down. I used data validation to do all these drop downs.

View 2 Replies View RelatedIs there a way to apply a custom validation rule to a drop down field in Excel (which itself is already using a validation rule)? Here is what I wish to do: I have a range of cells that can only pick up values from a list. I want to further apply a custom validation rule to these cells - display an error message when one chooses an element from the list that has already been used by another cell in the range.

View 2 Replies View RelatedI have a large table of data covering 3 different companies and need to create a second table of data counting how many entries there are for each month in each company. This second table is to be used to create bar graphs and I am not using pivot tables as I cannot work out how to get the pivot table to insert months where nothing has happened. The attachment should make it clear

View 3 Replies View RelatedIs it possible to create a formula using a Data Validation List where it will add a new entry to the existing entries in a cell?

For example: I have a data validation list with the names of Pete, Chris, Bruce, Carly, Megan, and Becky. With the normal data validation set I can select one entry and it will be output into the designated cell. If I select Bruce then Bruce with be placed in the cell. Is it possible to set it up so that each time I click on data validation it will add an entry to the already existing entry? E.g. I have already selected Bruce then I decide to add Becky, I want the output cell to show both Bruce and Becky.

I know I can do this with a formula that will place all the results from different cells into a single cell, but I would then have to create multiple data validation entries of which I would rather avoid if possible. Not to mention I don't remember how to do this formula anyway......
