# Counting Number Of Used Columns?

Oct 19, 2012

I want to have the number of used columns in a worksheet. The information will be used to understand what range the data is in. So for the rows I am using nRows = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountA(myRange). I am hoping to have something similar for the columns.

## Counting Number Of Used Rows/columns In A Sheet

Mar 3, 2007

In my Macro , i add a worksheet and depending on certain conditions i decide whether to populate it or not.

At a later point of time i am checking if the newly created worksheet is empty or not using the following check :

If ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets(ISheet).UsedRange.Rows.count <> 0 Then

Now what i have noticed is that even in cases where the "ISheet" is empty the above condition evaluates to true for the first attempt. I cannot understand why ?

let me know if the query is ambiguous and i will post the code snippet

## Counting Amount Of Columns With Different Content Under Number Of Conditions?

May 16, 2014

I've been desperately trying to figure out a formula that allows me to count the number of rows in a column that have different values, but that only counts those rows in which other conditions have been met. Probably sounds a little confusing, which is why I'll illustrate it with a screenshot:

The file contains a listing of major executives of a variety of different firms in different years from 1992 onwards. In the screenshot for example, you see the executives of AAR Corp from 1992 to 1997. Since my file however consists of 240,000 rows, there's a number of c. 2400 firms with their executives over a time period of 20 years each. Since not necessarily all executives remain with their companies for the rest of their lives, some executives show up for a number of different firms in my sample.

I want to determine at how many firms each executive worked within his current industry up to the respective year, based on the information of the 2400 companies and executive data over 20 years. The current industry is classified by 1 digit SIC codes (column U) and each firm has an individual firm identifier which is the CUSIP in column S.

For example, when applying this to the first row in the screenshot (Ira Eichner), I would need a formula that counts the number of different CUSIPs (thus firms), given that the EXECID (executive ID, identifier for each executive; column I) equals 9248, the 1 digit SIC code (column U) equals 5, and the Year (column J) is below 1992.

## Counting Number Of Unique Values In Rows/columns

Mar 6, 2003

I have several columns in an excel sheet which contain values (eg. Names). The entered names can be unique or already exist in the column. I need to find out (using a function or macro) how many different names were entered. Duplicates shshould be ignored in the count.

## Counting In Excel - Determine Number Of Times Certain Item Is In Columns

## Counting Number Of Rows Where Datediff Of Two Columns Meet Criteria

Aug 21, 2013

I have a range of data and need to summarize some of the data. In the table below is an example of the data. I would like to have a single formula where I can count the number of rows where the end date - start date is < 14 days. I would prefer not to add an additional column for the datediff value. Is there a way to do this with either arrays or named ranges?

Name
Start
End
Other data
Verizon
1/10/2010
1/25/2010
AT&T
3/2/2010
4/14/2010

## Looking Into Range Of Data And Counting Number Of Columns Before Data Is Greater Than 1

May 23, 2014

I need a formula that will look into a range of data and tell me whan the last time a value exceeded 0 (working backwards).

So below the first row would return a value of 6, the next 5, the next 0, the next 1 and so on....

I can do it with an if formula but the amount of days it will be looking at will be too many, plus the range will keep growing as time passes.

## 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 The Number Of Times A Multi Digit Number Appears

Nov 22, 2007

I've tried everything I know (which isnt that much to be honest. lol). Ive tried the frequency formula but that doesn't work the way I want it - I think its probably the wrong formula to use. I've also tried a pivot table but they always vex me. If a pivot table IS the way to go, could someone talk me through it step by step? (*the wizard is just as confusing as doing it yourself I find) ....

## Counting The Number Of Occurrences Before The Current Week Number?

Jul 10, 2014

I have a spreadsheet for tracking jobs. Most everything is based off of week # rather than date. I am trying to get the stats page of the workbook to tally the total number of late jobs per week.The current week is taken care of because there is a function that automatically displays on time yes or no and I just set it to count the yeses or nos.The problem I am having is for past weeks.

I tried- =COUNTIF(Table2[On-time],"No"+(CountIF(Table2[Week # Hidden],"<Weeknum(Now())" but that doesn't work. I also tried isolating the < like this. =COUNTIF(Table2[On-time],"No"+(CountIF(Table2[Week # Hidden],"<"Weeknum(Now()) and that did not work either.

------ UPDATE

In response to using CountIFS I have also tried-

=COUNTIFS(Table2[On-time],"NO",Table2[Due Week '# Hidden],"<Weeknum(Now())") this just returns a zero value even when I have a late job listed three weeks ago.

## Counting The Columns

May 29, 2006

This is a very simple thing that i can't seem to figure out or find the right code in search.

How do i count the number of columns in an excel worksheet?
- No selection should be made
- If it helps, the worksheet only shows the columns and rows with data, if there are no data there are no columns, something about the Page break view...

## Counting Data From Columns

Mar 17, 2009

In my table I have a column called Series and Column called Games.

Now when a user makes an entry the do the following

Enter the Date of a game
then a Series # (I wish I could make this auto increment because a series number can never be used more than once.)

then a game number starting with 1 and never going past 3.

Then Bet Team, Home or Away and Vs Team.

Now let it be know if the column called w/L = Win then that Series is over for ever and there will be no more games played.

If there W/L = Loss then I must create a new row for that SERIES with the next game number.

What I was hoping to do is

If I write in the following going in order
Date ---4-11-09
Series # ---- 6
It should auto populate
Game to the next game #
Bet Team
H/A
Vs Team

I also want it to update my record

C3 is my series Wins
D3 is my series Losses

I do not know how to populate that.

A Series Win = during a series game 1-3 where W/L = Win
A Series Loss = a series 1-3 where there are no wins. A series does not count as a loss until you loose game #3.

## Counting Strings Across Columns

Jan 9, 2014

I need to get the count of a string from multiple columns. The problem is that string1 exists in column A and String2 can exist in one of eight columns. See the example below.

What I want to do is use two search criteria. I want to find the number of times I have Type=A and if the row has a case Beta. In the example above I should get an answer of 2. (From rows 3 and 9)

I tried countifs but I cant seem to get it working properly.

## Counting Same Values In Consecutive Columns

Dec 11, 2013

Ex:

ABCDEFGHIJ
1AAAABAA

in the given range A1:J1, I would like to count 'A' only if it repeats more than or equal to 3 times. For row 1 I should get count as 4.

## Blank Counting Amongst Two Data Columns

Oct 17, 2013

So, in general I do have two columns F and G taken from the other xls.

Age is obviously difference between today and open date

Open date is open date.

I made a table like:

Age and due date.png

In this case, I have 3 rows where there is no open date extracted, therefore is no age. The counter stops on them and shows 529 in total instead of 532 or shows the age as far more than 365 days. How can I count the blank cells, but only in the range of the list I do have, not the all blanks I have from the beginning till the end of the column, so I could (for similar in this case) have 3 blanks cells counted?

Sometimes is also stuck in the middle of counting (when blanks are inside there) and the total number is even smaller. What function can I use to count these 3 (or less, more inn the future) as BLANK to have the total numbers realistic?

## Counting Unique Across Multiple Columns?

Nov 23, 2011

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(B2:B20="Temp",MATCH(A2:A20,A2:A20,0)),ROW(A2:A20)-ROW(A2)+1),1))

The works when referencing two columns. I need a total count of unique across three columns.

Sample Data

A | B |C
Jason | Temp | 1
Jason | Temp | 1
Jason | Final | 1
Kim | Temp | 1
Mary | Temp | 2

My summary table has the unique values of C in first column and the unique values of B as headers. I want the unique counts as the data.

Temp | Final
1 | 2 | 1
2 | 1 | 0

## Counting Times Certain Letters Appear In THREE Columns?

Sep 30, 2013

If I have two columns of data, and I want to count the numbers of times a certain letter appears in column A and another certain value appears in column B, I use the following formula:

=sumproduct((AA="yes")*(BB:="X"))

What formula would I use to count the number of times "yes" appears in column A, AND EITHER "X", "Y", or "Z" appear in column B?

Would this still be a SUMPRODUCT formula, or would a cOUNTIF formula be used?

How about counting the times certain letters appear in THREE columns?

## Counting Columns Of Check Boxes

Jul 25, 2008

I am using Excel 2007 on Windows XP. I have written up a questionnaire that allows the user to simply check boxes in the cells. My problem is coming up with a formula to count the number of boxes have been checked. I tried several count formulas without any luck. I think one of the problems is that when I highlight the cells with these check boxes it doesn't actually show in data in the fx line.

## Counting Text Values From Two Columns

Apr 22, 2005

I have an Excel document that I want to count the number of rows that meet a text value in two columns.

Column B has a value of either "Open" or "Closed".
Column C has a value of either "High", "Med", or "Low".

I want to count the number of rows that are "Open" "High", "Open" "Med", and "Open" "Low".

I've been studying a number of different formulas, but I can't seem to get my head wrapped around this functionality.

## 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 Distance Between Number 1

Mar 27, 2014

I need a formula, from which I need to drag (if needed) and to fill with numbers, by following principles:

- when the left cell contain the zero, it needs to find on the same column if there exists another zero, or another one and count them, let's say if find three zeros untill find number one, return 3.
- when find a number 1, after another 1, has to return a zero.
- the formula need to initialise from the top of the column, only finds the first number 1.

I have a relevant example down bellow. I used to count them visually and sometimes errors sneak into my spreadsheets.
