# Counting Matching Values In Two Separate Ranges Without Counting Duplicates?

Jan 1, 2014

I cannot get various formulas (Countif, Match, Frequency, Etc) to work properly.

I am trying to arrive at a total number of matches of numbers in cell range B1:G1 with any numbers entered into the cell range of K1:P11 and have the total of matches display in cell H1.
However I do not want to count duplicate numbers from the K1:P11 cells. (if the number 5 in posted in K1:P11 multiple times I only need it reported once in H1)

B1:G1 is the constant and the numbers will not change - K1:P11 cells will be populated by adding numbers until the all the numbers in B1:G1 is completed and match.

Range
B1 C1 D1 E1 F1 G1
2 7 19 45 22 13

H1 Total of matching numbers in cell range K1:P11

## Counting Cells With Certain Date Ranges As Values

May 3, 2006

I need to count cells withdates in theme in a column. So that would be a CountA function; but only if the values in the cells are within a certain date range, a COUNTIF function. Here's what I thought:

=COUNTIF('All Employees'!O1351:O1364,">12/31/05,<2/1/06")

It returns a zero, which I know is not correct, as I checked it on a smaller sample....

## Counting Formula (compare Values In 2 Separate Columns To See How Many Times The Same Value Appears In Both Columns)

Oct 13, 2008

I'm trying to compare values in 2 separate columns to see how many times the same value appears in both columns. Ideally I would be able to insert a range function to compare the values in the column "ID 1" against the values in column "ID 2" and return the count of times that a value appears in both columns. For example 2122, 1112 and 1718 appear in both columns and I would like the formula to return a count of 3.

ID 1ID 2
12342122
45671112
89101718
11122678
13144544
15162324
17189987
19201215
21221928
1976
2576
2345
4678

In my actual project I'm comparing 2 columns in the same worksheet. The column are column B with data in cells B2:B10266 against column C with data in cells C2:C18560.

## Counting TYPES Of Duplicates

May 23, 2014

I have a dataset that has a good number of duplicates, many of which have more than 2 records.

In these sets of duplicates, there are two fields that have many combinations of values.

I would like to find a way to COUNT THE COMBINATIONS in all of the sets of duplicates, as in, every time there is a type of a certain combination of values, create a count for it:

12345 9 9
12345 9 0

123456 9 9
123456 9 0

(Total: 2) For 9/9 and 9/0

12344567 0 0
12344567 0 0
12344567 0 0

12344567 0 0
12344567 0 0
12344567 0 0

(Total: 2) For 0/0 3x

I have attached a listing of types of combinations that I found by scanning the database, but I don't know what formula or functions would do the trick. I don't think there is something in Subtotal or the Count functionality that would apply but I will fumble around.

## Duplicates From A Range And Then Counting.

Dec 24, 2008

I currently have a spreadsheet that grabs data from 10 columns using vlookup.

This data is transferred to the new sheet in individual cells. (see attatched)

what i want to do is create a list from them cells, filtering out duplicates & counting them.
Creating a list like this:

720x560 = x5
452x282 = x3
etc.. etc...

I've tried everything i can think of, but i'm imagining that its a vba job to do what i'm asking.
I'd appreciated it of someone could point me in the right direction.

## Duplicates Counting With Plural Criteria

Jan 20, 2010

This is a follow-up of my previous post which was brilliantly solved. I found out that I need someting additional, which is over my head really.

I know have the following formula: IF(SUMPRODUCT((\$G\$4:\$G\$3000=\$G6)*(\$AA\$4:\$AA\$3000=AA6)*(\$O\$4:\$O\$3000=O6)*(\$I\$4:\$I\$3000=I6))>1,....

However, I want to change the end into something which can count the number of appearances of the duplications in a specific row, so I would get results saying that they appear 1 time, 2 times, 3 times or 4 times (4 being the most) in the list and could be placed after the text value of O and I (I398&" "&O398,"-"))?

I hope I formulated this well enough....

Also, does anybody have an idea how I can message my file? I've got close to 3000 rows all the way up to AB and my pc now starts to complain...

## VBA: Deleting Duplicates And Counting Results

May 13, 2014

I'm trying to take column A (number of records can change from time-to-time and may contain blanks), copy that to column B less duplicates and then use a count forumla to count items in column B based on original list in A. I am aware of how to do this in Excel but am interested in VBA.

Example

## Counting Duplicates In A Range Of Cells

Oct 17, 2013

I found this formula =SUM(1/COUNTIF(A1:A17,A1:A17)) onlinesometime ago and have been using it regularly. It counts the number ofduplicates in a range of cells. I have been trying to modify this formula sothat it only looks at the first two characters in the cell. So, instead 7duplicates it would return 5 duplicates because the formula would only belooking at the first 2 characters in the cells.

## Counting In Between Ranges

Apr 2, 2008

I am trying to count the number of patients that were in a hospital during specific times (time and date). I want to know, by hour, how many patients are in the hospital. I am using a month of data as my "sample size".

I all the start times (e.g. 3/1/2008 12:35:00 AM) and leave times (e.g. 3/1/2008 5:52:00 AM) and I want to have the patients by hour for the month. So I want to know that during, as an example, 2:00:00 AM to 3:00:00AM there were 40 patients in the hospital.

So I will eventually combine all one hour periods (e.g. 2:00:00 AM to 3:00:00 AM) for all the days, but it's counting (patients per hour)

## Counting Matching Numbers In Two Adjacent Columns

Nov 19, 2007

I have a fairly large spread sheet where I need to count the number of instances where the number in one column matches the number adjacent to it in a second column.

## Counting Matching Occurrences From Multiple Columns

Feb 1, 2007

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 :-)

## Counting Blanks In Date Ranges

May 19, 2013

I am trying to work on a spreadsheet (I am very new to all this). I have colum I with dates in and Colum K with dates in... When a product comes into my shop I enter the date it arrived in Colum I and when it leaves I enter the date in Colum K.

What I would like to try to work out is how do I ask Excel to tell me How many blank cells there are in Colum K if I enter a date range for Colum I

I will try to give an example.

Colum K may have 200 entries for the week 6/5/13 to 10/5/13. I need to know how many cells are blank in Colum K if the date range on Colum I is between 6/5/13 to 10/5/13

The end result should basically tell me how much stock I have left in my shop for that week.

I have found something that sort of works by using this =SUMPRODUCT((I1:I200<=TODAY())*(K1:K200="")) but ideally I need to be able to change the word TODAY into a date range like 6/5/13 to 10/5/13 and I cant seem to do that???

## Counting Time Ranges Within A Range

Oct 16, 2008

I have a column of start times which are entered as per 24hr clock and what I am trying to do is to is to sort the times out into ranges;

00:01 to 06:59, 07:00 to 19:00 and 19:01 to 00:00

The range is T7:T488 and here is my first formula for 00:01 to 06:59 which works, it correctly finds 35 entries;

## Counting Days Within Date Ranges

Oct 19, 2009

I run a small holiday cottage and I want to use excel to tell me which days of the year I get most enquiries for.

Every time I get an enquiry for a certain period in the cottage, I enter the dates into excel.

I have two columns - Start of holiday and End of holiday.

What I would like to do, is give each day of the year one point if someone enquires for it.

e.g. If someone asked for 3rd january to 5 january, I would give 1 point to the 3rd and 1 point to the 4th of january (but not the 5th as that is the day they would leave!)

At the moment I find it easier to count with pen and paper than use excel for this problem.

## Counting Filtered Data And Matching To Specific Monthly Headers

Apr 2, 2014

Essentially I want to show how many loans funded in October 2013, from ABC Lending, and I want that result to show in cell K9 of the Sample Output sheet. However, since I'm dealing with filtered data, I cannot figure out the correct combination of formulas to make this happen (e.g., SUBTOTAL, VLOOKUP).

Specifically, I'm stuck with the combination of a) counting the results that meet the monthly date criteria, combined with b) the filtered results. The single cell that I want to solve is K9, on the attached "Sample Output" sheet. Once I see how this cell works, I can figure out the rest. This cell is looking for the number of loans that funded in October 2013, from ABC Lending.

The filtered results are located on the "SCORE Data" sheet. The filter is already configured to only show results for ABC Lending, and the relevant column is labeled "Funded" (column "I"). Since the "Sample Output" sheet is looking for loans that funded in that month, and not a specific date, I created column "U" on the "SCORE Data" sheet, to convert specific day-dates to month-dates.

## Conditional Counting Of Characters In Cells/Ranges

Sep 9, 2006

I have a spreadsheet, a small section attached. There are near 20000 rows at present. I need to count the number of characters in B1 excluding any hyphen in b1. If a hyphen occurs in b on its own,the count is zero.If b cell is blank,i need a count of all characters in A.I need a formula I can autofill down.The count column is c and I have completed it manually to show what I mean.

## Excel 2003 :: Counting Occurrences Involving Two Criteria In Separate Columns?

Nov 13, 2013

I'm using Excel 2003 and I need to calculate the number of occurrences on according to different criteria in two separate colums.

I am on Sheet 3 and the data I am analyzing is on Sheet 1, titled "RATES". I wish to know how many occurrences are when the word "GB" appears on column B (cells B2 to B100) along with a value greater than zero on column M (cells M2 to M100). The word "GB" does not appear alone but is part of a string of text with different words, I think this is relevant.

## Formula Counting Attendance - Counting 1 Day Too Many

Feb 3, 2014

I was given this spreadsheet to count attendance by entering the entry date and exit day, however it's counting the first day and the last. I'm needing it to only count the first day and not the exit day.Book2.xls

## Retrieving Values Based On Matching Values On Separate Worksheets

Feb 17, 2010

Is it possible to have a formula where it will retrieve a specific value on one sheet based on matching values? Unfortunately, hlookup wont work as there are several values in the table where the 'lookup_value' is the same.

Example:

On sheet 1 (titled BSRC), I have a table which has a list of values in column 1. On column two I have the 'lookup value' which needs to be matched and all values underneath it to be retrieved from sheet 2 (titled CSRD). The 'lookup_value' range is on row 9 of sheet 2.

I have attached a sample spreadsheet for clarification.

## Counting Values In VBA

Mar 5, 2014

I'm trying to display a 2-column table that tells me the number of games broadcasted by each channel. The code has to figure out the channel name itself, without me specifying the channel name in it. How can I do this in VBA?

Game1 NBC
Game2 CBS
Game3 CBS
Game4 CBS
Game5 FOX
Game6 CBS
Game7 FOX
Game8 FOX
Game9 FOX
Game10 NBC
Game11 ESPN
Game12 NFL Network
Game13 FOX
Game14 CBS

## Counting Certain Values

Jul 11, 2008

if i want a cell to count certain value in a range what formula o set, i know that CountA function counts cells with words in them but it counts everything, i want a certain word(s) to be counted.

for example i have...

New
Old
Take Over

and i want C11 to count 'New' in range of B12:B20 .

how to?

and 2nd how to Name the Columns, i mean Instead of regular A,B,C how to set a name or title for them...
and how to keep them on top, i mean as i scroll down columns keeps there only sheets scrolls up and down so i can see given Column Names/heads.

## Highlighting Lowest Score Without Duplicates Highlighting And Counting Player Skins?

Feb 15, 2013

I found this spreadsheet on here and I have been trying to customize it to what I need. I am trying to have scores from skins match highlighted. I want only the minimum score to be highlighted but if there is another duplicate minimum score I don't want it to highlight anything. I also need to find a way to count the skins won by each player and have it off to the side.

For those not familiar with golf a Skin is a game where you try to get the lowest amount of strokes on a specific hole. Ex- 4 people play the hole one. P1 scores 4, P2 gets a 3, P3 and P4 get 6. The skin would go to P2 who has the lowest score on that hole.

Highlight lowest number in each column not highlighting if there are duplicates starting at L6 down to L11 and for each column till AC. And the same for the group just to the right on attached file.

On row 13 and 14 it tells me who won a skin. I want to tally up the total skins won by each player. so if Joe's names shows up twice on R14 I want it to tell me somewhere in the sheet Joe = 2

## Formula For Getting Average Of Values Without Counting Zero Values In Range?

Dec 23, 2011

Is there a formula that would allow you to take the average of all values within a range but not count the zero values? I thought something like this might work but it's not. Neither one worked.

=AVERAGEIF(\$E\$4:\$E\$34,">0")
=AVERAGEIF(E4:E34,">0")

## Counting Duplicate Values With Repeated Text Values

Jan 25, 2004

I have a collumn with lots of different text values some repeated. how can i count all these values so that it only counts each value once.

e.g

if in cell A1 i have = "apples"
and in cell A2 i have "apples"
and in cell A3 i have "Pear"

## Counting Values Within Cell?

Jun 20, 2014

I have a cell, say C74. In the cell contains 416 values are four & five digit numbers separated by a comma and a space. (example: 21160, 21161, 21250, 21340, 21440, 2155, 21650, 21651, 21740, 21741, 2185, 21940, 2253, 2254, 2440, 26160, 26250, 26293, 26323, 26350, 2636)

So I'm trying to write a formula to count all values with in the cell.

## Counting The Same Values In Two Columns?

Jun 27, 2014

I am trying to count how many times a certain value appears in a column. For example how mnay times A81001 appears in column A and compare with column B. I suppose it's Count function?

column A column B
A81001A81001
A81001A81001
A81002A81002
A81002A81002
A81002A81002
A81002A81002
A81002A81002
A81003A81003
A81003A81003
A81003A81004
A81004A81004
A81004A81004
A81004A81004
A81004A81005

## Counting Repeat Values

Dec 10, 2013

I'm putting a presentation together for work regarding false alarms and I'd like to count how many alarms have gone off at certain locations and I'm wondering if there is a formula that will accomplish this. I've attached a pic of a spreadsheet containing the data to be used. On the left side, there is a table labeled "Alarms" with columns displaying the dates, street numbers and street names. On the right side of the spreadsheet, there is a table labeled "Activations", which will be used to display the amount of single, double, triple, etc. activations.

For example, using the data, the alarm at "2 Red Oak Row" has gone off 3 times and since there are no other addresses where this has happened, a "1" would be displayed under the box labeled "3" in "Activations". Since the alarm at "4 Winding Way" and the one at "23 Blackberry Lane" have both gone off twice, a "2" would be displayed under the box labeled "2" in "Activations". The same would hold for addresses where the alarm has gone off 3 times, 4 times, 5 times, so on and so forth. In addition, if an alarm has gone off 10 or more times at any residence, the first 10 activations and any subsequent activations would be counted as a "1".

For example, if there is one case where an alarm at a certain residence has gone off 10 times (or more), a "1" would be displayed under box 10. If another residence's alarm also went off 10 times (or more), a "2" would be displayed under box "10".

## Counting Unique Values ...

Nov 11, 2009

Ok so I have an excel file, that has 20,000 records/rows of data. There is a column called <STATE>, which could be PA, MD, CA, MT, etc.

I need to know how I can count how many times each state is populated and return the results to a new created sheet called <REPORT>. See example below.

State:
PA
PA
PA
MD
CA
MT
NJ
NJ

Report Results
PA 3
MD 1
CA 1
MT 1
NJ 2

Can this be done?
