# Counting Unique Values, 2 Columns, Alphanumeric

Feb 16, 2005
I have two columns of data: 1 column can be possibly anything, either numeric, alphanumeric, or alpha only (VINS or vehicle numbers). The adjacent column are four different types of vehicles. I've tried concatentating the two to try and count the unique combinations (a truck maybe used more than once during the day), which I can get unique values, but not unique values for each type. Also, the range sizes are variable, but no more that 65 rows.

An example:

5CZ975 Van

25RW04 Straight

5CZ975 Van

ZJ6026 Van

So, the result I am after is 2 vans, 1 straight truck

I found an array in a another post, but it is not working properly (see cell F7 in the attached):

=sum(if(frequency(if($b$2:$b$18=$f7,$a$2:$a$18),$a$2:$a$18)<>"",1,0))

**ctrl+shift+enter**

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.

Columns A & B contain several thousand Project Numbers (e.g., P1052, PA844, etc.). Many of the Project Numbers in column B are the same as in column A, but column B also has additional (i.e., newer) Project Numbers scattered throughout. Ideally, I would like to use a built-in function (versus a custom function if possible) that compares all the Project Numbers in both columns and then separately lists those that are unique to column B.

=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

Ok so I have an excel file, that has 20,000 records/rows of data. There is a column called <STATE>, which could be PA, MD, CA, MT, etc.

I need to know how I can count how many times each state is populated and return the results to a new created sheet called <REPORT>. See example below.

State:

PA

PA

PA

MD

CA

MT

NJ

NJ

Report Results

PA 3

MD 1

CA 1

MT 1

NJ 2

Can this be done?

I have 2 columns i want to find out which items match in each column and put the matching value in column c. I have tried Vlookup and continue to get an N/A .. I tried countif and I get either an N/A or a value error. I have tried turning the cells into text but that is not working either..

column A has about 1700 rows and column B has about 4000

MOST CELLS ARE 6-7 VARIABLES.. satrting with either 01, 02, 03 with 4-5 letters following or have a 6 digit number or 6 letter value.

I have 2 columns with approximately 200K lines of data. There are only 84 and 823 unique values in each column respectively. On my report.

Column A is essentially a customer list, column B is a product list. I am trying to find out how many unique/individual products a customer orders. I have a separate column that has the customers in it (Column G), and in Column H, I want it to count the unique products ordered by customer.

I changed some of the data, but essentially what I attached is what I need.

I have a column of data with 1000 rows. In this column there are duplicated values. I would like to be able to use a function count how many unique values are in the column. Let's say there were 4 duplicates of 250 values in the column. I would like to be able to write a function to calculate the 250. I am very familiar with Excel and am able to acheive the number through subtotals and/or pivot tables. I know I can find how many instances one specific value appears in the column through sumproduct and/or countif statements,

I have the following macro (as part of a much bigger set of code that adds some formulas to to cells to return the total number of unique values. The problem is, this part of the macro takes over 10 minutes to run. Is there a quicker way of doing this or am I going to have to just wait it out each time.

The columns B and/or H is a formula. Column W is an string value.

FYI the last row it is counting to is between 4000 and 30000 lines in each of the formulas

Code:

Dim IRMatRow As Integer

Dim IRMisRow As Integer

Dim UKMatRow As Integer

Dim UKMisRow As Integer

IRMatRow = Worksheets("Matching Stats").Cells(Rows.Count, "H").End(xlUp).Row

[Code] .........

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.

I need counting unique values with a number of given conditions. I need this to be a formula so that I can just add data to my spread sheet and it will automatically calculate.

The formula I have is:

SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(A:A=Z1,IF(B:B=Z2,IF(C:C>Z3,IF(D:D<=Z4,G:G)))),G:G),1))

The goal is to count all of the unique value in column G:G that meet certain criteria (have ending times greater than Z3 and beginning times less than Z4, etc.). Once I get the formula to work, I'll simply drag it down to have it calculate for similar lightly changing criteria (like different beginning and ending intervals). However, the formula doesn't seem to be working. It's only giving me zero values (I have "ctrl-shift-entered").

I am looking to count the unique amount of customers who are listed in column C based on the criteria that they purchased the product on the 1/08/2014 and that the product came from Department 3. The output I am looking for in this example would be 3. I can do it for this example but when I have 300 different customers it starts getting tricky and I'm a bit stumped on how to incorporate an array formula into a countifs() function or whether there is an alternative.

Date DepartmentCustomer

1/08/2014 3 A

1/08/2014 3 B

1/08/2014 2 C

1/08/2014 3 D

4/08/2014 3 A

5/08/2014 2 A

5/08/2014 3 D

I want to count unique items in a list with an array formula, like the items is in 3 columns A,B,C are from row 2 to 101. Now i use an array to filter out some rows in the columns of B,C & then count unique items in Column A.

so,

column A has "30 diffrent names repeated from A2 to A101"

column B has numbers 0 to 100

column c has value either 0 or 1

now i use an formula TO filter out rows in column B & c

formula =count(IF((B2:B101>0)*(C2:C101<>1),1))) using ctrl+shift+enter

now what should i suffix or prefix to this formula to count unique values in column A.

Is it possible to count unique values in one column based on that column and another column? I have a report that has a column of dates (B:B), column of month and year (C:C), and a column of RMA numbers(A:A). The RMA numbers repeat if there is more than one part on the RMA. I would like to count the number of RMA created each month. Below should be Jan = 2; Feb = 2; Mar = 1............

I have a CSE formula that allows me to count based on two criteria but it does not count unique values and you have to specify the two criteria.

I have a spreadsheet which has in one column a list of offices in Column H. In Column K there is a lst of locations. In these cells the 'location' has a value of for example ( abcdb 1234), however in a cell there may be more than one value eg (abcd 1234, xxxxx 3241,). I need a macro or formula to count the number of locations per office and also a macro or formula to count the number of unique locations per office and the number of unique locations overall. A small example of the spreadsheet. This spreadsheet can have thousands of rows.

Column H Column K Office 1 abcs 1234 office 2 locationa 2435, locationb 6521 Office 3 abcs 1234 Office 4 locationa 2435, locationb 6522 Office 5 abcs 1236 Office 1 locationa 2435, locationb 6522

I have used the advanced filter option in excel 2010 to display all the unique occurences of a list of names (column B) and then used the count function =COUNTIF(A$2:A$21,B2) to count the occurences of each name (column C).

However, excel did not manage to take into account the last 3 entries in column A (mir-23). I assume this is because it is a mixture of text and numeric values. How can I include this information in the grouping and counting?

I am attempting to count how many cells have different values in a table while not counting the N/A's and 0's found in the table. From what I'm finding online, I see lots of formulas set up with frequency functions, but none of them are set up to exclude anything - just find unique values. I need to count the cells with values other than 0 and N/A going across each row and not count the same value twice

Here's an example of what the table looks like (the real one is over 1,000 rows and 50 columns) with column C being where the formula needs to go. I put what I would like to have returned in the cells.

C

I have an issues with a formulae I have written to measure two factors;

A; How many different countries appear within a certain date range. B; What countries are they.

I tried a unique list, but could not get it to work within a range? I dont particuarly care how the data is pulled through as long as I do it. At the moment I have become stuck in 'Unique Ranges' and have n given up?

The formulae issue is in the tab "Problem_Formulae", the dat in the sheet 1, and the date ranges in sheet 2. Also, just to make life a bit more challenging pivot tables are a no go .

I am working on an attendance spreadsheet in Excel 2003 at work that will display data showing number of learners allocated to an activity, number unallocated, number attended, number not attended, number of acceptable reasons and number of unacceptable reasons by Block Letter. My problem is that for a number of reasons the same learner number is allocated to a number of activities each day. I need to know how many learners from each block have been allocated, not how many allocations each learner has from each Block.

I have tried different formulas, but fast running out of time

I have attached a modified sample from the main spreadsheet

I need : Cell H4 to calculate the number of unique values from Column C on Mon tab but only meeting the following criteria Mon!$N$3:$N$4000="AM", Mon!$O$3:$O$4000=D4, Mon!$B$3:$B$4000="mon1" I can then apply to the other rows.
