# 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?

I have a row containing:

Date entered

Name

Date of Birth (DOB)

Occurrences of Name + DOB this Month

Occurrences of Name + DOB within last 3 Months

Occurrences of Name + DOB within last 6 Months

I can manage the occurrences this month but haven't a clue how to calculate the 3 and 6 months ones. I have attached a sheet.

I'm putting together a database in Excel and there is a particular item that I am having trouble with. I need to count the frequency of occurences in between events over a series of cells.

This:

ABBBAABBAB

Needs to be tracked like this:

ABABAB132211

Basically I need to write it so that when A occurs it counts how many times B occurs immediately after, until the next A. Once that is figured out I should be ok counting double A occurences.

how many dates appear in a column. I have a spreadsheet wherein when a name is encoded in column A, the date is automatically logged in column B. Now, i need to count how many of those dates occurred in column B.

For the month of May - how many 1 May 2007, 2 May 2007...an so on.

After that - i need to match those dates to the name of the encoder and a another encoded status. It's like - 1 May 2007+john+approved = 1 occurence. I need to count them separately and combined.

I'm trying to formulate something that will count how many times say 5 comes up in a =randbetween(1,20) function. Of course if I do =(IF(A1=5,1,"") it will count it, but once the randbetween recalculates it will reset. Is there any way to do this so it keeps a cumulative count?

I’m looking for a formula that will count the number of occurrences of “YES” in column A between a specific date range (column B) BUT only if the it's categorized as "LAB" (column C).

Up until now I’ve jerry rigged the spread sheet to do it with various filters, if, and countif formulas but I’m looking for something that will fit in one cell and lower the overall size of the file.

To make it even more complicated I’d like to feed the formula the date range information from another editable cell so that it can basically be queried for whatever dates my boss is concerned about at that second.

i have a spreadsheet that contains a column for each day and i need to input the count from another tab for certain data...example as follows:

column A shows types of fruit - apples, bananas or oranges, row 1 contains the date (todays date, weekdays only) - the count of each fruit needs to be entered in rows 2 (apples), 3 (bananas) & 4 (oranges) for each fruit for each date

i copy and paste a daily report into a new tab in this workbook -Raw Data (the data is always in the same format and the info i need is in column J...."555" = apples, "666" = bananas & 777" = oranges)

i have used the below formula which works:

apples =COUNTIF('Raw Data'!$J$5:$J$65536,"555") etc

however the daily report that is pasted into the Raw Data tab only relates to the current day (date is present in this tab in A1)...how do i get each daily column to only display a count if the date in row 1 matches the date in Raw Data tab A1?

also how do i keep the previous days' data to keep what the count was for that day (instead of counting the current count of the new data only relevent for today)?

I use [=IF(F15="","",EDATE(F15,-D15))] to track time frames. The problem is Edate works great for months but on occasion I need days, like 40 days. In cell D15 I have a list where the user must choose from, but one of the choices needs to be in days so the Edate won’t work anymore.

I have a list with several stocks tickers and the respective quantities and prices on three columns: example below. I wanted a formula to list all different occurrences of each stock only once. Later on I would consolidate all trades.

stock / price / quant / expected list

A / 10 / 1000 / A

B / 20 / -2000 / B

C / 25 / 500 / C

D / 30 / 2000 / D

E / 15 / -2000 / E

B / 20.5 / 1500

A / 10.2 / 1200

D / 29 / -500

C / 25 / 800

E / 16 / 2000

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)

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

I've been racking my brain on this one for awhile, and I feel like I'm going the right direction but...

I have a list of dates like:

11/30/2007

10/31/2007

9/30/2007

8/31/2007

7/31/2007

6/30/2007

5/31/2007

or maybe

11/30/2007

11/23/2007

11/16/2007

11/9/2007

11/2/2007

10/26/2007

10/19/2007

10/12/2007

10/5/2007

9/28/2007

9/21/2007

9/14/2007

9/7/2007

8/28/2007

...and I need to determine if the difference between them is daily, weekly, or monthly. There are 79 of these lists, on 79 different sheets so I can't visually peg them as daily, weekly, or monthly.

The way I have been looking at the problem is to calculate the number of months between the last & first dates and see if the resulting answer (+1) matches the number of actual dates, and so on...

I am using excel 2013 in my laptop (windows 8.1) after having upgraded excel 2007. Everything works fine during my daily tasks. Especially autofill which I use quite often works perfect.

At the same time I upgraded my girlfriends laptop (Windows 7) with the office 2013 (office 2007 was the older version) and somewhere there begun some isues. Autofill doesn't. Especially with months or days. I enter the value "Monday", I drag down (of course using the black filled cross down right of the cell) the cursor and all the cells get the value Monday. Even if enter the value Tuesday in the second cell and then try to autofill (having marked before both these two cells) I get the same results. Monday, Tuesday, Monday, Tuesday.

I tried to test the autofill with numbers. If i write only the one number (for instance the value "1") and then autofill, this doesn't work. It gives me the value "1" in all the cells. But if I enter the value "2" in the second cell, the autofill works fine (marking these 2 cells and then autofill).

We make some online courses using exactly the same excel exercise files. In my laptop everything works perfect.

In one column I'll have a list incrementing in 1w,2w,3w,1month and I want to be able to count the number of days that have elapsed till the latest cell. Right now I'm just winging it by saying there's always 31 days in one month using a COUNTA function, but I need it to be accurate.

I know I will earn $5,000 of monthly revenue from a client. $5,000 is represented in a monthly revenue cell. I have 12 columns showing the 12 months of the year. There is an additional cell showing the customers implementation date.

If a company's implementation date is on or after the 15th of the month (example: 3/28/2014) then the next month (April 2014) is skipped and the $5,000 is returned to columns May through December. All months prior to May return $0.00. If the implementation date is before the 15th day of the month (example: 3/13/2014) then the next month (April 2014) and all months after will return $5,000. All months including March and prior must return $0.00. If the implementation date is unknown then 12/31/2099 would be in the implementation date cell and $0.00 is returned for all 12 months.

Essentially, if the implementation date is prior to the 15th of the month the revenue will show as of the following month. If the implementation date is on or after the 15th of the month the revenue skips the following month and will show the month after.

Cell A1 contains 02/29/2012

Cell B1 contains 12/01/2006

I am looking for a formula that will return the number of months (periods) between two dates, ignoring days and years. Using the above dates, which cannot be changed, the result needs to be 63. The formulas I have tried keep returning 64 because my later date is at the end of a period, and my earlier date is at the beginning.

I have some cells which must be in the format 15/06/2007 15:25

I then need to add either days, months or years onto it.

Say the above date/time is in cell A1, when I do =YEAR(A1)+5 it displays 2012 if I choose the general cell format, but when I select the same cell format (date time) it comes out as 04/07/1905 00:00

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?
