Counting Word Occurrence Within A Month From Another Column
Aug 11, 2013
How to make information gathering easier. So I have a spreadsheet with information in one tab and Graphs & tables in another. I am trying to count how many times a word appears in my last column (the word is "HM - GM") but I only want to count how many times that appears in the month of Jul (The July column is my first column, it shows as "Jul-13" but when you click on the column it appears as 01/07/2013). I have tried a few =COUNTIFS formulas I found around the site, but none seem to work for me. I am trying to get the counted information into a table so it will show how many 'HM - GM' were in Jul-13.
I have a few dozen columns of data and would like from each row to count the number of negative numbers in every 3 occurrences. E.g. in row 2 I’d want to count the negative occurences in B2, E2, H2, K2 etc. Also, I’d like to be able to count the total number of occurences along each row, again counting every 3rd occurrence, though this time both negative and positive values.
I am trying to create a graph that is conditional on two different columns. The first column is a date column, the second column has various categories. I want to show how many times each category appears per month. This database is continually added to so I wanted the formula to reflect the entire column range.
For example, let say I have 5 categories (Grapes, Apples, Peach, Pear, Banana). Column A would show a date (in a M/D/Y format) and Column B would list the fruit type. I want to show how many Grapes were input in January, February, March, etc. and then move on to show how many apples in each month, and so on.
I'm working on an attendance sheet, and have allocated certain letters for related occurrences. For example, V=Vacation day, S=Sick day, B=Bereavement, etc. Over a two-week period (eg - D19:D32), I want to total the number of times one of these values has been used, and add to work hours. Where an employee will enter 7.5 in D19 to indicate hours worked, they may instead enter a 'V' for a vacation day, and have 7.5 hours still added to their total hours in the pay period. I have a formula that works, but it is so incredibly long that I'm thinking there must be an easier way.
Right now, I'm using the following: =SUM(D19:D32)+(COUNTIF(D19:D32,"V")*7.5)+(COUNTIF(D19:D32,"Vh")*7.5)+(COUNTIF(D19:D32,"S")*7.5)+(COU NTIF(D19:D32,"Sh")*7.5)+(COUNTIF(D19:D32,"H")*7.5)+(COUNTIF(D19:D32,"B")*7.5)+(COUNTIF(D19:D32,"A")* 7.5)
I want to count the number of sales in three periods. prior 7 to 12 months, prior 4 to 6 months, and over the last 3 months.
I have three letters that occur in column B of sheet 2.
A for active, P for pending, and S for sold. The date of activity appears in column C for each event. It is in mm/dd/yyyy format. Currently I have over 5000 rows.
I would like to total the sales for each period and place it on sheet 1. can you help or point me to the right place to read up on it. I can get the information by using a pivot table but there has to be a faster way.
I am writing a program which would look for look for the word " TOTAL" in sheet1 and then assign several values in sheet 2 based on cells offset of address of "TOTAL". This is repeated and down rows of sheet 2. Everything works except that it is giving repeating the first "TOTAL" address; i.e. it doesn't seem to go to the next met criterion.
I know there's a pretty compley formula out there that counts the occurence of say Fridays in 2009 - does anyone have this? I had it before in a file but ranged valued the results showing the count of each day of the week for each month in a given year.
I have a spreadsheet with column B being the date when a staff joined the company; column C being the date when the staff left the company. If I want to set a formular in column D to calculate just the number of month had a staff been working in the company, how should I set?
e.g any day joined in Aug 05 and left in Sep 05 will be counted as 1 month
Now what I need is a formula similar to the one provided in the above referenced thread; however, I need it to sum the totals of all Children (C) from column BW in the attached excel file, and return the sum values found in BW to the corresponding employee (E), before the next E occurrence, or blank, if the row below the last row containing a C value in row M in blank.
refer to the excel file, specifically the row highlighted in RED, and the explanation to the right of it, for further clarification on what I'm needing the formula to do.
Ultimately, I have a census of employees with rates, and some employees cover their children, and I'm needing a formula that will be able to total up the monthly premium for each employee's covered children, and bring that total up to the same row that the employee's data is located.
I have items arriving on certain dates (the dates are listed in column N)
In the cell to the right of each month, I want to have a formula that will count the dated cells in column N that fall under each month.
i.e. In cell B5, next to January, I want to display the total number of cells that contain a date in January (ultimately giving me the number of items that arrive in January) the number would read '5' because there are 5 dates in January that are in the list.
I would like to count how many Mondays, etc., that shh worked.

Some dates will appear twice, because that will be relative to different clinics.
What is the easiest way to find the last occurrence of a value in a table using functions. I want to avoid VB if at all possible and note the row number and use it in an index function to report text adjacent to that last occurrence. I would normally use match but match only records the first match and not the last.
I have one column in a worksheet that I want to split into 2 columns. If there is one "(" in the cell, I want to split at that point, but if there are two "(" 's, I want to split at the second occurrence. I can use the Like operator to identify the cells, but is there a way to specify which delimiter in a sequence of identical delimiters to split at? Here are templates (not actual data) of the two type of cells:
Name1 (ABC) (Name2, Name3) Name4 (Name5, Name6)
For the first, I want to split on the second "(", before Name2, and for the second, I want to split on the first "(", before Name5.
I have a 2007 Excel spreadsheet (saved as .XLS) with worker names in column A and error types in column B. Column B can have multiple entries (which are sometimes duplicative of each other) separated by a hard return.
What I need to do is run tallies to determine the number of errors by type for each person, counting the value every time it appears, even if it is more than once in a particular cell. The ultimate goal is to generate a formula to track the number of occurrences for all error types types for the person in Column A (i.e. one formula each to track ABC's Procedural errors, ABC's Technical errors, ABC's Admin errors, DEF's Procedural, etc) though ideally I just need a formula to calculate any one of those and I can edit it to get the rest. Here's a sample screenshot:
The COUNTIFS formula is where I started but that only seems to count cells with the value as opposed to occurrences of the value. I did find this formula in my searches but it doesn't seem to work:
Here is the attached Excel file and the following is the desired output of the macro:
1.) List the data (Names) of the Columns D (Input), F (Analyze), and H (Output) in Sheet1 to Column A (Name of Person) in Sheet2. There should be no repetition of two names. 2.) Count the number of entries of each person in the Column D (Input) in Sheet1 appears per month (basis is the Input Date column E) and record into the corresponding month in Sheet2 under the Input Header. 3.) Add the total of the 12 months in the YTD column under the Input Header. 4.) Repeat steps #2-3 for the Column F (Analyze) and Column H (Output) of Sheet1 with the results recorded in their corresponding headers in Sheet2. 5.) Note: The data in Sheet1 is a running data and continually adds up as the current year goes by. If there is a way the macro could take that into account it would be much better.
I'm getting an export from a CDR. This export contains the date and times people log on and off from a queue. For logging in they dial 511, for logging out they dial 512. They get a voice prompt and type their password. I need to know how much time they daily spend in this queue
At first this looks pretty easy. I just make a sum of all the times they called to 511, then a sum of all time they called to 512 and finally I substract those values and I end up with the correct time spend in the queue.
The problem comes when they call multiple times to 512 without actually logging off. For example, they type the wrong password or simply hang up.
Result is this in the CDR
FROM TO DATE TIME 101 511 23/12 08:34 101 512 23/12 11:58 101 511 23/12 12:34 101 512 23/12 14:45 101 512 23/12 14:47 101 512 23/12 15:00
The actual time spend in the queue is 5 hours and 50 minutes. But Excel calculates this as 35 hours and 22 minutes, because it counts the 512 values no matter what.
How can I make sure that Excel only calculates the values of they are either the last value in the row OR if they are preceded by 511?
Please see the attached xls file so see what I am referring to.
I have shipments that are going to different destinations (rotterdam, austria, london, etc.)
I would like to count the arrival dates in column H that fall under each week's span, but ONLY IF its corresponding value in column F is 'rotterdam'.
Column C contains the ideal numbers that I would like column B's formula to return. I plan on doing this for the entire year, but if someone can some up with a formula, I might be able to modify it for the rest.
Note: This is only an example spreadsheet, I am going to be referencing an external file with much more information on it.
