# Counting Occurrences Based On Uniqueness Of Value In Another Column

Aug 9, 2007
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.

Here is a table

Col1 Col2 Col3 Col4

8821015m14:44.0E__uMail

9266321m34:13.0E__uMail

92677165m23:43.0E__uMail

9309415m07:24.0E__uMail

[Code] .....

Here is some context

Each one of these rows represents an entry into a ticket in our incident management system. Col4 represents the method by which the incident was reported to us (Email, Voicemail, Walk In, Ask IT). A ticket can be open and closed with a single entry if the issue is easily solved or it can have many entries if the issue is complex and requires more troubleshooting or escalation to a higher tier of support. I need to determine the number of unique tickets submitted by each reporting avenue (Email, Voicemail, Walk In, Ask IT).

In this table the number of tickets that were:

submitted via Email is 14

submitted via Voicemail is 1

submitted via Walk In is 2

submitted via Ask IT is 1

Col1 Col2 Col3 Col4

8821015m14:44.0E__uMail = 1

9266321m34:13.0E__uMail = 2

92677165m23:43.0E__uMail = 3

9309415m07:24.0E__uMail = 4

[Code] ....

What I need is a formula that will produce this result.

I'd like to count the number of occurrences a value appears in a column. Hard to explain what I'm after so I will draw it out:

Column A

2512

2512

2513

2513

2513

2513

2518

2519

2519

2519

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

ColA ColB

2512 1

2512 2

2513 1

2513 2

2513 3

2513 4

2518 1

2519 1

2519 2

2519 3

I am working on a big project involving baseball statistics, evaluating individual seasons. After a great deal of entertaining data gathering, I have a spreadsheet of 1896 seasons that meet certain criteria--that is, seasons belong to an individual player. The player's names are in column A of my spreadsheet.

Individual names appear between 1 and 15 times. I would very much like to generate a quick table (or just a couple of columns) that lists every name in column A, and how many times it appears. My understanding is that the histogram function won't work with text. I'm running Excel 2013 on windows.

I get this work a lot and am looking for a much more effective way of working the dataset,

I have numbers like 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and so on.......

These come under criteria like (1) = 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and so on.....

I am look for an automated way of doing a count of any number that falls under this criteria, so I want to count based on criteria (1) it would count all 1.1,1.2,1.3 and so on as one count.

I am attaching a sample document to see how it is laid out. [URL] .....

I've got two columns, one with policy numbers, the other with error codes.

A policy could be in the list more than once, so I'm counting the number of unique policy numbers with the function

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(A10:F10000,A10:A10000)>0,1))

I want to count the number of errors that are NOT code 00 or code 21. Because the error codes are saved as text, I'm counting the number of errors with

=SUMPRODUCT((B10:B10000"21")*(B10:B10000"00")*(B10:B10000""))

The problem is that since a policy number could be listed twice, when I count the errors, I might be counting the same policy as an error twice. This means that I could feasibly end up with more errors than I have unique policies, which doesn't work.

What I'd like to do is only count the number of errors that have unique policy numbers. That is, I only want to count an error the first time it is in the list, based off it's policy number. Is that possible?

Here's my sample data: [URL]

We've got a column of names. A single name might appear once or two hundred times. The column is over 25,000 lines long, so we don't want to have to count how many different users there are (besides the likelihood of doing it wrong!). Is there some way to make Excel count the number of unique entries in the list, ignoring multiple repetitions of the same name?

I have a spreadsheet which consists of Sheet 1 and Sheet 2.

In Sheet 1, Column I there is a list of country names which indicate who visited our website at a certain time. So for example England may be listed multiple times.

In Sheet 2 I have a table showing January through to December in a column and the different country names across the top in one row.

I want the Table in Sheet 2 to count how many times England (for example) occurs in Column I and to indicate that as a numeric value.

what I'm looking at doing is counting the number of reccuring unauthorised absences in a list. We have the persons name in column B, the absence type in column C and the date in column E. Basically I need to send out an AWOL notice when 5 days of unauthorised absence for the person in column B has occurred, so I need some sort of indication that this has happened in order for me to stick some conditional formatting in there to flag it.

I am running Excel 2007 at work in compatibility mode. My company is in the process of switching to Excel 2007, but not everyone has it, so I save my files in Excel 97-2003 format, so they can be viewed by everyone.

Problem:

I am trying to count the number of occurrences of "dates" between a starting date and an ending date. (e.g., cells B16:B1000 contain dates when a test at work was performed. I want to count all tests that occurred between 12/30/2007 and 1/9/2007.) Please note that the dates cross the new year

More Info:

I have searched this board, found a similar post, and tried the different formulas listed but get a result of "0" (zero). If I try the same formulas at home using Excel 2000, they work. The formula types I've tried include regular and array styles I am led to believe that this is either an Excel 2007 bug (bug??? - Nah, not from Microsoft!), or one of the cute changes between the new and old versions that I keep running across. The last possibility is that I am doing something wrong, which a smart betting man wouldn't rule out either!

I'm working with a set of text values. The sets of text can be either 2 or 3 chars long (in this example 2), and are separated with a pipe. The end char for each set of chars in fixed. In this case a Z.

I'm looking for a formula which counts the unique / distict number of sets of chars. I have been trying to use COUNTIF with a wildcard (?Z), but unfortunately I haven't been able to find the correct formula yet.

For example.

|AZ|AZ|AZ|BZ|AZ|AZ|BZ|AZ|BZ|AZ| -> 2 (AZ, BZ)

|AZ|AZ|AZ|BZ|CZ|AZ|CZ|AZ|BZ|AZ| -> 3 (AZ, BZ, CZ)

|CZ|BZ|AZ|BZ|CZ|AZ|EZ|AZ|FZ|AZ| -> 5 (AZ, BZ, CZ, EZ, FZ)

|BZ|BZ|AZ|BZ|CZ|AZ|EZ|AZ|GZ|AZ| -> 5 (AZ, BZ, CZ, EZ, GZ)

I have a sheet with data which is all sorted by columns.

What I want to be able to count the occurrence of an instance when 2 cells in the same row (but in different columns) match my given criteria.

Ive been using 'countif' to count the instances in a single column and I am now aware that this is about all it can be used for.

An example of my data is:

A B

1 a

1 a

1 c

2 d

2 c

3 b

3 b

3 c

3 d

What I want to be able to count for example is how many times '3' & 'b' occur on the same row (in this case the answer would be 2).

Im not very good with pivot tables and have tried but have not managed to find an answer. I really hope that someone can help as Ive been working on this probelm for days and quite frankly its doing my head in :-)

I am using Excel 2010, and trying to count the number of times a certain name occurs within a specified date period. The date range start date is manually entered in F7, and the date range end date is manually entered in F8. I need to be able to choose different reporting periods. The answer to this question goes into F3.

I also want to know how many working days (Column D) it takes per name. A working day is Monday-Friday, less public holidays. In this period there have been public holidays from 24 December until 2 January (inclusive), 20 January, 6 February, 18 April, 21 April, and 25 April. I put these dates manually into the worksheet "Holidays".

For the number of times a certain name occurs I tried the COUNTIFS function but keep getting a "zero" value. I used the NETWORKINGDAYS function for the working days and have incorporated the holiday periods. That seems to work OK and I can live with the negative date values showing here.

The really tricky part for me - can I combine the COUNTIFS (assuming it works) and NETWORKINGDAYS functions into a single function to only count the working days of a specific name. As some names have yet to be completed (i.e. there is no data in Column C) how do I not count those? The answer to this question goes into F4.

There will be about 6 of these spreadsheets, and I intend to link all worksheet data into a "master" spreadsheet which automatically updates whenever it is opened. The separate spreadsheets are stored in a document management system rather than a network drive so I can't state a filepath.

I have a row that contains a different time (hh:mm) in each column where each column represents a different date which is display in row 3. If there is no time the cell is populated with "N/A"

I want to count how many cells for a specified Month/year are not equal to "N/A". I have been able get each selction criteria to work but when I try merging numeric and non-numeric queries I lose it.

The following formula was able to give me the count of cells "N/A"

=COUNTIF('Master Data'!$UA59:$ALZ59, ">0")

and this gave me a count by Month/Year

=SUMPRODUCT(--(YEAR('Master Data'!$UA3:$ALZ3)=2012),--(MONTH('Master Data'!$UA3:$ALZ3)=1))

When I tried creating one COUNTIF I was unable to get it without an error as I needed the YEAR/MONTH functions.

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.

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*"))

I'm using Excel 2003 and I need to calculate the number of occurrences on according to different criteria in two separate colums.

I am on Sheet 3 and the data I am analyzing is on Sheet 1, titled "RATES". I wish to know how many occurrences are when the word "GB" appears on column B (cells B2 to B100) along with a value greater than zero on column M (cells M2 to M100). The word "GB" does not appear alone but is part of a string of text with different words, I think this is relevant.

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 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.
