# Counting In A Column?

Jun 2, 2014
So I have an annoying dataset to work with. The first column contains ID#, string, string, string, ID#, string, string, string, string, ID#, string, and so on. It is basically a list of patient numbers with a list of their appointments listed underneath them. I need to find a way to count up the number of strings for each patient, like shown below:

Patient#

Count

101

2

Had an appointment

Had an appointment

Deleted-Had an appointment

The format isn't too important. The data I have is basically column A, and I want to create column B.

I've created a very simple formula which counts the number of days from Today and excludes blanks.

I'm trying to set it up so the formula *stops* counting the days once a cell in column C is populated.

Formula so far...

Code:

=IF(A3="", "",A3 - TODAY())

It looks exactly like this this [URL] .....

I have a workbook where I am trying to COUNT the values greater than zero in column "J" based on a selective criteria of column "B".

In other words, if the date in a column "B" cell (B3:B78) is greater than the date in A86, I want to count the number of cells whose corresponding value in the "J" column is greater than "0". And then I want to take this selective COUNT and divide it by a COUNT of all the cells in the range "J3:J78".

So, what I am trying to do is:

FORMULA /COUNT(J3:J78)

is there an IF formula to compare values in two columns, say Column A and Column B have "Action recommended" and column B has "Actual action taken", both columns should have the same texts, in cases where there is no similarity, the formula should count the cases.

Im trying to find out a way of counting the contents of, say: column C where that contains text as long as column B = a variable

Basically column C contains the words Sale and Lead and i need a function that reads column B for examples of a user defined variable (1-4) and counts sale or lead in column C if this condition is satisfied.

like a sumif but capable of adding text (two cases of in this example but not really vital as the only things in column C would be sale, lead or left blank)?

I have a column of names and I want to find the frequency that each name occurs per row, but the cells have a string of text. For example:

Column A:

John Dimon, Matt Carpenter, James Chan, Gary Smith

Matt Carpenter, Leo Monroe, Craig Thomson

John Dimon, Matt Carpenter, Larry Barclay

I would like a way to count how many times each name occurs in the column. So John Dimon would be 2, Matt Carpenter would be 3. I tried countif but it doesn't seem to work with a string of text.

I have a list of 60,000 names in a spreadsheed, column A has the NAME, Column B the STREET NUMBER and Column C the STREET NAME. Heres a small sample.

WADE FRED100603RD ST

CHALWIN E100733RD ST

JAQUE D J101263RD ST

JAQUE D J101263RD ST

JAQUE D J101263RD ST

JAQUE D J101263RD ST

JAQUE D J101263RD ST

BAXTER P M101593RD ST

BAXTER P M101593RD ST

MCLEOD E A101603RD ST

MCLEOD E A101603RD ST

MCLEOD E A101603RD ST

As you can see some of the names repeat, and that is exactly what I want. I want to write a formula in Column D that will indicate how many times each name appears so that it will show, for example, a "5" beside JAQUE D J" and a "2" beside "BAXTER P M".

I have tried using EXACT, MODE, IF ... COUNTIF wouldn't work because there will be some names that are duplicate but at different addresses, besides the range would be enormous.

I tried using the following code to count the number of entries in a column (Column A, text entries) and then display it as a percentage of the total in a separate box. I just got the result "1".

Sub Count_Selection()

Range("a1").Activate

Dim cell As Object

Dim count As Integer

count = 0

For Each cell In Selection

count = count + 1

Next cell

Range("g1").Value = count

End Sub

How do I go about having a formula which will return the number of times 0 is repeated in a column sequentially?

e.g.:

0

1

0

0

0

0

0

1

0

0

0

The idea being that after row 7 (there have been 5 consecutive zeroes), the count would reset when it hits a value greater than zero, and then count again once it hits a zero again.

Output for the example above should be 3.

How can I count the number of unique values in a column?

I have a spreadsheet that lists transactions that occurred over a one-year period (2007). I need to determine the number of days our facility was operational. No transactions on a particular date (25-Dec-07, for example) and the facility would be considered to have been closed on that date.

On the days that the facility was open, multiple transactions would have occurred on those open days and those multiple tranactions are all reflected in the worksheet.

So I need to count each occurrence of '01-Jan-07', '02-Jan-07', and so on.

Ok so I am trying to streamline the Shirt ordering process at my work. I have made a table with Employee names as Column A, then Row 1 is shirt sizes from small to XXXL. The Cell values are going to be the colors people want. I want to total the number of each size/color combination. But someone may want more than one of the same color. For instance you would enter "BK, BK" if you wanted 2 black shirts of that size. This is where the issue with COUNTIF comes in. If a cell has the same value twice, it only counts it as one because counts the cells with an instance of a value, not the actual count of instances. Is there a way to make COUNTIF or a better function for this?

I'm using a sumproduct forumla to count rows based on specific data in multiple columns. So if column A equals 1 and column G does not equal 6 and column M equals 4 then count that row. I know how to do this. The problem I'm having is that I want to count column A if equals 1 or 2. I tried adding an OR comand in with my sumproduct but it doesn't seem to work that way.

I want it to count and fill in a range in column A until it sees a blank or notices the change in value in column B. In the example below i hope it shows what i need to do. i left the last group without numbers to show that is where it needs to start counting over again. i am basically wanting to count down 1st place 2nd place etc.

I want to count the number of times a certain value is found in columnB, only for unique values in columnA.

I have made a simple example file, attached. Column B shows Status which can be Active, Current, Dormant. Column A holds Item names. I want to know how many Active Items I have, but an Item can appear more than once in ColA, so I want it only to include in the count the unique ColA values.

I am trying to count the number of unique items in a single column (~5,000 rows of data). For example, I may have the following data

a1 = apples

a2 = pears

a3 = oranges

a4 = apples

a5 = apples

a6 = apples

a7 = pears

in this case number of uniques items is 3

Right now I am using a Pivot Table to figure out the number of unique items but I am sure there is an easier way to do this.

I need to be able to count items if they match a condition in another column, as below

A B

1 Apple Red

2 Apple Green

3 Apple Red

4 Pear Green

5 Apple Red

6 Pear Green

7 Pear Red

8 Apple Red

How can I count how many Red Apples there are. The answer should be 4 but when I use countifs I can either count the no of apples in Col. A or the no of colour Red in Col. B.

I have tried every combination of if, vlookup, and count that I can but keep getting errors or single col. counting.

I want to add a formula in column b that will add the number of times it appears as it appears:

ColA ColB

2512 2

2513 1

2513 2

How to make information gathering easier. So I have a spreadsheet with information in one tab and Graphs & tables in another. I am trying to count how many times a word appears in my last column (the word is "HM - GM") but I only want to count how many times that appears in the month of Jul (The July column is my first column, it shows as "Jul-13" but when you click on the column it appears as 01/07/2013). I have tried a few =COUNTIFS formulas I found around the site, but none seem to work for me. I am trying to get the counted information into a table so it will show how many 'HM - GM' were in Jul-13.
