Counting Different Characters In The Same List

Oct 26, 2009

I'm making a register and need to count the attendences (marked on the register as 1) and the number of authorised abcenses (marked on the register as AA).

I'm using the SUM function to count the attendences but wondered if they was a formula that would allow me to just count the AAs from the list.

Counting Characters

Mar 30, 2009

I have 62,000 lines - and some of the cells contain 4 numbers, and some of the cells contain a sequence with two letters followed by 8 numbers

I want to count how many cells have the sequence of two letters and 8 numbers.

Everything Ive read so far has led me to using the LEN function, but that doesn't seem to be working too well for me.

Example: In D5 if I have AB00011111

Basically =LEN(D5) will tell me there is 10 characters in the cell - How do I get it to count the cells with only 10 characters and post the number of cells with 10 characters in column E1 for me.

We are in the middle of a system conversion and I need to make sure our data is not over the length of the maximum character count for certain fields in the new system. Is there any function in Excel that counts the # of characters in a cell or will highlight the cells that contain larger than a certain # of characters?

Counting Text Characters Within A Cell

Aug 8, 2007

This should be simple, but I am struggling with finding a way to use the search or find function to identify text characters. This is my situation, I have for example a cell that contains FW023 or D1234. I need to be able to count the number of characters that are text.

i would think I would be able to do it with the search or find function, but can't figure out how to get it to just count the number of text characters with in it.

Sort List By No Of Characters

Feb 18, 2007

I have a large list of phrases, about 30,000 all in Col A. (From A3 to be exact)

What I want is to sort by number of characters.
I know excel can sort A-Z,,, but I can't see by number of characters??

Is there anyway I can sort this list by No of Characters please??

List does include letters and numbers.
But they are mainly 3-4 keyword phrases.

This is so from a large list all the least amount of characters will be at the top of the list so I can easily see them,, and probably delete most of the 1,2,3,4 character returned results.

A Custom Sort List Longer Than 255 Characters?

Apr 30, 2009

I have a large list of parcels to be delivered which have names, the last 2 letters of the postcodes, addresses tel. no. etc. I have created a custom sort list of postcodes in the order I want to deliver them. I can only list a total of 85 postcodes since there are 2 characters in each postcode and a return at the end of each line, hence 85*3=255.

Is there any way I can make excel sort my list of parcels using a spreadsheet list of the 2 postcode letters of unlimited length? There is a theoretical maximum of 676 postcodes in my area (26*26) so I would need it to be at least this long. It would also be more convenient if it were an excel based list since the editing of such a list would be more convenient.

Formula For Counting Positive Numbers From 0 - 999 In A List

Dec 19, 2011

Any way to make a formula that would "COUNT" the number of positive values from 0 to 999 (no negatives and nothing higher than 999). Another way of saying it would be values greater than or equal to 0 but not more than 999?

For example. If you had the following numbers in a list, I would like a formula that would only count the 3 numbers that are less than 1000 but equal to or greater than 0.

$370 $1,070 $1,400 $300 $1,160 ($4,720) $1,080 $1,170 $30 $1,050 $1,150

Counting Duplicate Files And Comparing To List

Mar 22, 2013

I am trying to make a Macro that will search through a folder on my PC and look for file names with a string such as shown below:

The issue i am facing is that many of the files have duplicates.

I need it to check to see if the number of duplicates in Column E for each file name have the same amount of duplicate files in the actual folder... and if they don't I need the rows(s) highlighted Yellow.

Example: Say I run this macro.. and there are only 2 files in the folder that start with "BH1003".. as there is 3 instances in column E.. the 3 rows that have "BH1003" in them should all highlight..

I have added my code so far below also, but it only highlights each row Yellow if it finds an instance of the string in column E.. I don't know how to get it to count and compare....

Code:

Private Sub CommandButton3_Click()
'Search Folder for files - Highlight Yellow if Exists - Highlight Red if NOT Exists.
Dim r As Long, lastRow As Long
With ThisWorkbook.ActiveSheet
'get last row

[Code]...

Counting Occurences Of Months And Days Etc In A List

May 11, 2006

I have been struggling for almost 2 days with this problem.

I have a list of data, one column of which is the date displayed in dd/mmm/yy format.
This date will always be entered by users and is variable.

I can't find a way of counting the number of occurences of each month and each day that the date represents.

So, I want to know how many occurences of March, June, May, Septemeber etc are on this list and Mondays, Tuesdays, etc.

I have tried several posssible routes, DCOUNT DCOUNTA COUNT COUNTIF SUM. I've also tried separating the date out into days & months using the MONTH & DAY functions but this didn't work either.

It also apepars (shock horror) that Excel has incorrect date & day values because entering todays date in one cell (11/05/2006) and then using the DAY function to find the day of the week for this date produces WED when it should be THU. (My system date is set as 1 Jan 1900).

I feel that Excel can't separate the months & days away from the date, since the date is stored as a numerical value and not as we humans use dates.
The dates will always be manually entered by users, probably as dd-mm and Excel will automatically add in the year.

How can I count the occurences of each month and days of the week?

Removing Multiple Invalid Characters For Dependent Data Validation List

Oct 14, 2009

I have a list drop down that is dependent on a first list. The first list has numbers, spaces, and "-" at the beginning I need to get rid of to make it a valid name to reference. The "Substitute" function can't be nested enough times to make this work for me since I have a fairly lengthy list for the independent column which has differing numbers at the beginning. The first two examples of the independent drop down (which would dictate the second dependent column and drop down) are:

00 - Preconstruction
01 - General Conditions

I would like to name these something like "Preconstruction" and "GeneralConditions" for valid naming convention.

Second thought:

If character removal isn't the most efficient or possible at all, is there a combination of reference functions that could make this work? Ultimately I want to use these 2 drop downs for reference functions on a second worksheet.

Counting The Number Of Times A Date Appears In A List

Nov 21, 2008

the number of days when there were 0 cases
the number of days there was 1 case
the number of days when there were 2 cases.
As yet there are no days in which there were more than 2 cases but there might be in the future.

I have a list of dates when operations took place in that room. On some days the it was not in use, so those dates don't appear in the list. Some days there was 1 case, so that date appears once in the list. On some days there were two cases, so that date appears twice in the list.

What I've done so far is create a pivot table that contains all the dates, then grouped it by day and counted the number of times there was 1 or 2 cases in a day by hand, then subtracted the total to get the days when there weren't any cases.

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

Take X Characters From One Cell And Y Characters From The Next?

Aug 1, 2014

So we have people's names in a table. First name in one column and last name in another column. We have a 3rd column where we can use 8 characters to do a combination of First 5 of Last Name + first 3 of first name. However, if someone's last name is only 3 or 4 characters, we'd then want to take more from the first name to fill out the 8 characters.

So:
Charles Johnson -> Johnscha
John Smith -> Smithjoh
Willian Wu -> Wuwillia

What's the best way to do that without creating some crazy formula with tons of if/thens?
