Is there a function in Excel that will count cells that are different from one another? I.e. it would not count the same value twice. For example, in column A:
a a b a b b c a c
The result would be 3. However, if I replaced the first "a" with a "d" I would get 4 as a result. Basically I want to know how many different arguments there are in a list. I could not find a function that does this in the Excel list of functions.
I am trying to create a formula to count the # of names up to a certain word. So Cells A1-F1. Are a list of names, the Last name in the list starts with VACANT. How do I create a formula to count the # of names in the list upto the work VACANT? So if VACANT moves to C1 it would decrease the # of names.
I have written some VBA code to to test if there are 8 names within a range (EF5:FH5, these are 8 merged cells, (4x4 cells)), if there is 8 names within the cells, ie not any empty cells, then the coding will add the new staff name to "trigger_box_1b", and if not then "trigger_box_1a". These trigger boxes are then used to populate further cells.
Private Sub Trigger_Box_1_Change() Windows("Admin Skills Matrix.xls").Activate 'puts focus on correct spreadsheet Sheets("Skills Matrix").Select 'puts focus on correct page Select Case WorksheetFunction. CountIf(Range("EF5:FH5"), 0).double Case 0 Trigger_Box_1b.Text = New_Staff_Name Case Else Trigger_Box_1a.Text = New_Staff_Name End Select End Sub
the problems I have be having is that VBA is not recognising the Countif function ("Compile Error: Invalid qualifier", then highlights the Countif). I have tried using a CountA function with the same responce. I have tested the rest of the coding and know that it's working fine (don't think anyone would like to see 75+ pages of VBA coding)
I know this question may have been posted before, but I can not seem to get this to work with my formula. I have a formula to count the values of a column so that I can convert it to a graph. I am giving a value of 1 to cells that contain numbers between 0 and 9.5 and giving a value of 0 to cells that contain numbers greater than 9.5. It works fine except that I have some blank cells that I do not want to get rid of and it is counting those as zeros and giving them a value of one. I want to ignore the blank cells or give them a value of zero.
In my dataset above the cases finish after 12 months (hence why there is a maximum number of cases).
What I am seeking is a method to count along a certain number of cells, then sum the contents of those. For example, I would like to count the contents of up to 12 cells, then sum those 12 cells.
Where it gets difficult is as follows:
- In month 6, I am just counting the contents of 6 cells (months 1-6) - In month 12, I am counting the contents of 12 cells (months 1 -12) - In month 18, I am counting the contents of 12 cells (month 7 - 18)
way to count cells in a spreadsheet (not values in the cells but just the cells themselves). So I have a whole bunch of cells, some are red, some are blue, some are green based on the info i have to keep track of.
so can i write some COUNTIF for red cells green cells, etc
I have attached a spreadsheet with some tele numbers. What i need to do is to find out which column only has 1 telephone number, eg. only a cellphone number, etc. I have aboout 50 000 records that i need to check if only 1 telephone number is available. Can i use the countblank function?
I have a large number of customers listed in an excel sheet that may recieve a visit from my organisation. The reason for the visit may vary and sometimes a customer may recieve more than one visit. Each Row (or record) maps to a customer. Each column has a visit type which I insert a date in to say when the customer has been visited.
I am looking for a function that will return if a customer has been visited or not. As dates can be summed like numbers I am currently saying in the "Visits Recieved" column =if(sum of dates (visit type colunm) >0, 1,0) Then I simply sum the column to get my answer of how many csutomers have been visited.
I have a column (within a database) containing hundreds of Project Numbers (e.g., P8763, PA3229, P1090.1, etc.), and the same Project Number can appear more than once in the column. I need to count the number of unique Project Numbers within that column, based on the criteria of another column. Is there a way to do that using a combination of the DCOUNTA function and a formula?
I am trying to write a formula for the following can anyone help please? I have column D with blank cells and some with purchase order numbers in them. I want to count the blank cells in column D but only if the blank is 3days older than the date recorded in column A. Once I have done this I want to count ther same on every work sheet and I have 24 off them and get one answer. This will tell us all the outstanding purchase order older than 3days
I have a Column (G) of dates that is the sum of Column (B) and 6 months. I have conditionally formatted Column (G) to turn RED when overdue Yellow when close and GREEN if more than a month out. At the end of Column (G) I would like for it to add all the "RED" blocks and total them.
I'm struggling to work out a formula to do this even though it sounds simple.
I want to count cells in a particular row or column that contain any data, ideally without having to specify a range, so I just want to know that in column C contains x or row 5 contains y amount of data. So it would look at the entire rown or column and work out how many cells contain something and shows how many.
I have a sheet with a bunch of data including dates. I'd like to report out the number of cells that are in a certain month (say January). If I create another column and use =MONTH(A12), I can use COUNTIF(A1:A100,1) to perform this task. This somewhat clunky solution isn't very practicle, becuase I have about 30 column's I'd like to analyze by the date in the column. Is there a more elegant solution where I can incorporate the MONTH(A12) into the COUNTIF equation?
I would like to count the number of cells that contain a word. My table looks as follows:
In Column 1 (left column) I have 3 cells that contain the alphanumeric value "BDL". This would yield a non-numeric count of "3". Column 2 would yield a count of "0". I hope I'm being clear. Anyone hav an idea?
I am doing a simple count and it returns a value of zero.
I am wanting column D that equals "Macro" to return the number of rows that column D has Macro in it? I used = Count and I used = sumproduct and =count returned me a zero value and there are several hundred rows that meet that criteria and =sumproduct returned a zero value as well????? What am I doing wrong? Is it so simple that I'm missing something?
Bear in mind that the above is in 1 cell and in-between each attribute is an - Alt Enter
Now I want to know how many cells a certain attribute is contained in e.g. "MCE+". I can do this on a one by one basis using the "Contains" Filter. However I would like to have the FULL list of my attributes and know how many times each one is mentioned.
I have table in excel 2003, where in one column I have different values in cells, such as A, B, C, D,E, F, etc., etc ( as text values as an example) plus some blank cells, how to calculate number of cells with values different from/not equal to B,C without blank cells?
What I would like to do is create a column that will count the number of cells in each row whose background color is not red or yellow. The yellow background color was input manually, and the red background color was input through conditional formatting.
I have a spreadsheet full of GPS locations of different pumps on different dates. Each column represents a different pump, and each row represents a different date. The cells on this sheet contain one of two things - either a set GPS coordinates or the word "Repair" and a description of the repairs done. A few days ago I went through and checked the GPS coordinates to see which pumps were where every day during the past three years, and changed the background color of each cell containing GPS coordinates determined to be off-site to yellow. I then used conditional formatting to change the background color of each cell containing the word "Repair" to red. Now I need to go through and find out how many pumps were on location, not being repaired on each day.
Here's a link to a sample workbook. Any cell containing the word "GPS" just represents the fact that there are GPS coordinates in the cell. Their format is basically "(#####, #####)".
Is there a particular function which will allow me to count particular names inside cells, e.g, in cell A1 there are three names(Ben, Jack, Tom), cell B1 (Jane, Tom, Andy). I'm looking for a formula which will count the number of occurrences of Tom in cells A1 and B1.
I have a column, we'll say E18:E2500. In the cells in that column are four digit numbers. Some of these cells may have multiple four digit numbers separated by a comma and a space. (example: 2020, 2100, 3120) Some other cells in the column may also share the four digit numbers (I mean duplicates).
So I'm trying to write a formula to sum and count all the unique values in the cells and in the range. This is what i've been trying to use but it counts all the values with no regard to duplicate values:
