# Counting Number Of Months If More Than 9 And Highlighting Cells

Dec 24, 2013

Have been doing some sums on excel. I've managed to calculate the number of months between 2 dates using this formula.....

=DATEDIF(C3,D3,"y")&" years "&DATEDIF(C3,D3,"ym")&" months "

I then come up with a list of months calculated.

What I now want to know is, how many are equal to or more than 9 months? And if this is the case then can the cells be highlighted in a different colour?

## Counting The Number Of Months

Dec 13, 2006

I am trying to calculate the number of months between two given dates.
The spreadsheet is basically about staff and their start and end dates.

For example start dates would be in colum A and end dates would be in column B (in dd/mm/yyyy format).

I am currently using the following formula:
=DATEDIF(A1,B1,"m")

It does return the correct results when the dates are the same e.g. start date = 01/01/2006 and end date = 01/04/2006 = 3 months.
BUT when I change the end date to 31/03/2006, it returns as 2 months.

Is there a way around this? I need a more accurate number of months (with no decimal places)

## Counting Number Of Months

Apr 1, 2008

I have an excel list with 3 columns (date, comment, cost):
I'm continously adding new entries to the list and want to see the average cost per month without remembering how many different months I already entered.
For this I need the number of months extraced from the date-column so I can devide the cost total by the numer of months.
The date format is dd.mm.yy

## 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

Any method for colour highlighting a row (specific number of cells) as and when any cell of that row is selected, and return to normal when deselected.

## Highlighting Cells That Have Duplication In A Set Number Of Charictors

Jun 8, 2009

each month i have to clens a sheet that shows customer name and then the figures per month.

this is pulled from a system that allows for a new entry each time a variation on customer name is used, I.E

Joe Blogs LTD
Joe Blogs Limited
Joe Blogs ltd.

would all come through as new entries. then i have to manually consolidate the figures from each month. the spreadsheet has over 5000 rows, and maybe only 15% are duplicated. what i want is to be able to select the column (that will be sorted a-z) and highlight cells that have a match for the first 4 or 5 charicters.

once i have identified duplicates i then have to merge the data into one row.
is there an easy way to do this? it is monthly, comparing 2008 and 2009, so by december there will be 24 columns + the company name that need to be clensed.

## Counting Months ..

In column A I have dates set up in the 00/00/00 format. In cell B2 I want it to tell me how many 09s (Septembers) there are in column A.

## Counting Months Between 2 Dates

Oct 7, 2011

I need a formula to count the months (including part months) between 2 dates.

So i want 01/04/11 to 5/5/11 to equal 2

I have tried a few formulas that get the answer 1 but i need it to count the part month too.

## Counting Number Of Cells

Mar 24, 2014

My data is as follows:

Month 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17
Number of Starts 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10
Rolling Number of Cases 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 110 120 120 120 120 120 120

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)

## Counting Cells With Certain Number Conditions

May 9, 2012

I need to count all the cells in columns H, I, and J that contain a number either less than -.5 or greater than .5.

Separately, I also need to count all the cells in columns H, I, and J that contain a number either less than -.5 or greater than .5 if the corresponding cell in column G is not empty.

## Counting Number Of Cells Which Are Green

Apr 12, 2013

I have a column that shows green when a target has been reached.

On a separate sheet, in the same workbook I have the number of days which target has been reached in the month. At present I have to update this manually, is there a way to automate this?

## 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?

## Counting Number Of Cells With Same Number

Jan 5, 2007

I need to know wich formula or VB method, I have to use to count the number of cases in a range of colomns and rows C4:G107, have the same number. For eaxample how many times do I have number 1 and so on...

## Counting The Number Of Instances Between Blanks Cells?

Mar 18, 2009

I like to think that I am pretty good on Excel 2003, can't stand 2007 but hey thats for another thread.

I can do most forumulas and write some pretty elaborate macros, but one thing I am trying to do has completely stumped me.

Each month I compile a Pivit table that shows by day if a product was in stock or out of stock, this is represented by a blank cell (in stock), "1" Out of stock.

All this is fine, but I want to be able to show the number of instances that a product was out of stock in any given month...

## Counting Number Of Cells In Column That Are Not Blank

Mar 21, 2012

I want to count the number of cells in column A that are not blank MINUS or EXCLUDING the cells in Column AD whose values are "Closed".

## Counting Total Number Duplicate Cells

May 21, 2013

I have a Workbook with multiple sheets with Data in them. I would like to Count the number of duplicate values between the sheets.

For example.

Sheet one has a list of case references Person A is dealing with.

Sheet two has a another list of case references Person B is dealing with however the also have a list of case reference's they are monitoring as part of a project.

Sheet 3 has got the total number of case references each Person is dealing with, it also contain the total number of cases Person A&B together are dealing with. however i need to find the total number of cases Person B is monitoring that Person A also has so that the total number of cases is the true number of total cases with no duplicates involved.

(References begin with VB then have a string of numbers afterwards and I would like to know the total number of cases the Person B is monitoring as well so these need ot be calculated).

## Counting Conditionally - Count A Number Of Cells In One Column?

Dec 11, 2012

I am attempting to count a number of cells in one column so long as they fall within a certain date, which is located in another cell in the same column. I'm trying to account for a number of reports that happened within a certain week.

The formula I came up with was

=COUNTA(COUNTIFS(A_DATE,">="&B2,A_DATE,"<="&D2))

But this returns 1 more then it should no matter what. Even when all cells within A_DATE are empty. it returns 1.

I know the COUNTIFS portion works to count the cells between certain dates.

Is what i'm looking to do possible or am I suffering from Excel burnout and just can't see that logicaly it makes no sense?

## Counting Number Of Populated Cells In A Specific Column

Aug 7, 2009

I am sure this should be REALLY simple, but i just can't find the answer i'm looking for. I have a sheet which changes daily in quantity of information. I want some simple code which counts up the number of populated cells in column A and returns the answer to a cell in another worksheet - or just automatically use it to print that number of pages.

I think i should be able to do the printing side, but, currently have no idea how to count up the number of populated cells in the row. If someones feeling very generous though, giving me the code for printing that number of pages too would save me some work (the worksheet which needs printing is different to the worksheet which needs the number of cells adding up.)

## Counting The Number Of The Remaining Cells (yet To Be Filled In) Of A Column

Aug 15, 2009

A column (A1:A60) is being progressively filled in with numbers, and occasionally some blank cells are between.

I need a formula to work out the number of the remaining cells (that are yet to be filled in) from the last entry till the last cell (A60) of the column.

## Counting Number Of Date Occurrences In Range Of Cells

Aug 13, 2012

I have an excel sheet which is currently 1,100 lines long and expected to increase and has a number of dates in columns W-AO representing the dates in which someone has had an onsite assessment. I wish to report in column AQ if there has been any visit activity in the month, i.e August for this monthâ€™s report. Is there an Excel function which will allow for this? Im thinking something like having a drop down list to select the month at the top of the column and then the sheet returns a value of 1 for all lines where a there is a date equal to the month selected?

I guess it is also worth mentioning that the sheet is setup as a table.

## Formula For Counting Number Of Occurrences Within Range Of Cells AND Strings

Jan 14, 2014

I'm looking for the easiest way to count the number of occurrences within a cell range.

The formula that I'm currently using is:

=COUNTIF(D\$5:D\$8,"a*")

This counts the number of cells that start with 'a' and returns the sum. It seems to work fine, but when I try to make it look for more values in the range it gives me an error. For example;

When I want to find multiple values in the range and count them all, I use this formula:

=COUNTIF(D\$5:D\$8,OR("a*","b*","c*"))

## Counting The Number Of Non-empty Cells Beneath A Reference Cell

I'm trying to count the number of non-empty cells beneath a reference cell and would be most grateful for a few pointers. The code I currently have (that doesn't work) is:

## Formula To Calculate Based On Start Month Number And Duration Number Of Months

Mar 14, 2014

I need a formula that will calucalte the monthly total based on the following conditions:

Col A = Yearly Cost
Col B = The number of the month when the costs are starting (1=Jan etc)
Col C = The duration or the number of months for which the costs are to spread
Col D is Year 2013 with the months across columns D-O. Row 1 above those columns shows the month's corresponding number.

Right now I have =IF(\$B3<=D\$1,\$A3/\$C3,0) however if my start month is 1 and my duration is 5, I need the costs to stop after May. I've attached a sample file. Calculate based on start month and duration.xlsx

## Highlighting Rows Where A Value Is Not A Whole Number

Sep 18, 2009

See attched spreadsheet. I would like excel to highlight the rows where a value (model) = *.* (ie: not a whole number). I think the attached spreadsheet explains it better.

## Highlighting Variable Number Of Duplicates?

Jun 7, 2013

My sheet cotains a variable number of duplicates (2 up to 12 duplicates) that can each have different amounts.

Ex: 9879 = 7
9879 = 0

I would like to be able to highlight all the duplicates for that show only 0 as their value (all the duplicates must have a total value of 0). I've tried nested if functions and conditional formating but to no avail.

I've attached a small file that shows the end result.

## Comparing 2 Columns, Highlighting The Higher Number

Sep 1, 2009

I am trying to do is I have column C and column G. For each row, I want to highlight or change the font color of the greater number. I can do it with conditional formatting, but I am only able to do it for 1 row at a time and it will take forever considering there are over 800 rows.

Is there an easy way to compare the two columns and highlight or change the font color of the higher number in that row?

For example:

C G
4 5
8 1
6 2
9 11

So it would highlight the 5 in the first row, the 8 in the second row, the 6 in the third row, and 11 in the fourth row.

## Highlighting Cells If Specific Data Appears In Adjacent Cells

Mar 18, 2014

I have a couple of spreadsheets that has several columns each containing several hundred thousand rows of codes. To quickly analyze this data, I am trying to come up with a conditional formatting formula to highlight the respective cells when specific values occur next to each other. A particular code will show up in many cells, but the code that is the respective adjacent cell is always different. I need to know when row A contains, for example, '9928559' and row B contains '36415RT'.

## Highlighting A Range Of Cells Dependant On Data In Any Of Those Cells

Jul 20, 2009

On the attached sheet I am trying to indicate that enough data has been entered by highlighting the entire column. Any 3 cells in Rows 7-13 and 18-36 will be filled in with any of the values from cells O6-O11 (hidden). When the total = 6 i would like to highlight the entire column to indicate it has been completed.

The aim is two fold: to ensure that the correct number of points is allocated in each race, and secondly to indicate which column is the next to be filled in (as human error sometimes misses the column and adds the points to either the previous or next columns). You could call it idiot proofing the sheet. At present i have the cells in Row 37 conditional formatted to show this, but would much prefer the entire column to highlight.

## Highlighting Cells Based On Cells Values In VBA

Mar 26, 2007

I need to highlight a cell when its value exceeds parameters based on the production line it comes from. If the line is K11, then i need this cell to highlight when its value is either < 0 or greater than 221. If the line is K21, than it needs to highlight when its value is <0 or greater than 474.
