# Excel 2007 :: Formula That Counts Individual Numbers Within 1 Cell

Jun 13, 2014
For work I keep track of errors in files my co-workers make. So in one individual cell it may look like this :

OP15698

OP25687

or

OP45986

OP74563

I simply need to count how many of those file numbers there are in one cell.

Is this possible? I also use Excel 2007.

I am using Excel 2010.

At work, we've got a program that outputs the results of a search into an Excel file, in column 1 below.

I need to get that list of numbers listed out to the right, with one number per cell. The list in column one could possibly contain from 1 to 20 numbers, and the last number is always without the comma after it.

In Excel 2010, I have a list of numbers with about 7000 rows. I am trying to track the number of times the number "22" appears within 30-day periods, with the end-result being a "count column".

While I could enter a formula manually for the date ranges, there are over 200 time-spans I'd have to enter (list goes back to year 1994). Is there a way to automate this process...

I have the following SUMPROCUCT in place and it works fine for current purpose:

=SUMPRODUCT(VLOOKUP($E$9,Rota!$C$4:$FU$369,{5,30,53,78,103,137},FALSE))

columns 5, 30, 53, 78, 103, 137 all contain text. However I need to amend some of these to text but I still need the SUMPRODUCT to add up.

Is there a way to amend the above formula so its counts both text and numbers in 5,30,53,78,103,137 ?

Column: A B C D

Values assigned & Formula Used : 1 2 3 (A+B+C)

There are lots of cells, where i used various formulas that includes the value of Column D as specified above.

Example:

In Column E as "D*3" or Column Z as "D-E".

Now, i want to trace in the whole excel sheet, where i used column D in Formulas, i put through.

I have a mass of data which look something like this:

table removed

and I require the ranges of reference numbers to be listed in a column one above the other, which requires inserting new rows. I also need the date & description columns copied down into the newly inserted rows.

So basically for example I would want the top row to now read:

table removed

and then apply the same procedure to the other ranges below this.

I'm using excel 2007 sp3. I have a function that I want to adjust so that, when used, it spits back the last two numbers in a specific cell. Is there an easy way to do that? If my cell said blahblah12395-01, how can I get excel to gather the '01'? My current code is below...

Code:

RowPos = RowSpec & ", and " & Range("C" & LoopStrt)

The 'Range("C" & LoopStrt)' is what I currently have to gather the contents of the cell. I have a message box later that displays the "RowPos" string.

how would you do the following in excel 2007:

"SUM numbers within a cell based on unique strings in another cell".

For example, how would i use formula to SUM the following numbers (and only the numbers for david and sam only once), 700+454+50+40+2+129+16

700david

700 david

454john

50buch

40daniel

I have an issue with two columns in Excel 2007. The first one has a bunch of numbers that run from top to bottom and I would like to move all of the negative numbers from the first column to the second one. I understand that this can be done with the IF command

I have an array formula which reads:

{=SUM(IF(Female2!$A$2:$A$5000=$A403,IF(Female2!$C$2:$C$5000=C$402,IF(Female2!$1:$1=C$401,1,0))))}

However this formula only counts the number of cells (returns 96 for 96 cells) rather than adding the numbers in those cells to come to a total of 34.

Version: Excel 2007 WinXP

I'm basically looking for something almost like an inverse function to INDIRECT. This function would first look at a cell's formula as a text string, parse out the first valid cell reference in A1 format, and return that cell as a text string.

Detail: I have a spreadsheet with cells that point to other values. I would like to get only the row number from the first cell reference in the formula residing in a given cell. For example:

Suppose A1 has the formula =AL267. and A2 has the formula =SUM(AL94:AL235)

I would like a formula in B1 that returns the text string, "AL267" so that I would know this is the first reference.

Ideally it could be dragged down to B2 such that it returns the text string "AL94" (and not "AL235") because AL94 is the first cell reference in A2's

Currently I am copying the formulas after hitting ctl+` and pasting that text into a text editor, followed by text operations to manipulate the results into the desired values. Any solution that didn't involve going out to notepad.

I have a set of data in once cell and its strung out. I'm trying to pull the numbers that follow certain words from that data. That's easy enough with the find and mid function for the first one. But after that I have a repeating word (see below) and different numbers that follow it. So I want to pull the second number string after that word, the third and so on.

I've attached an excel file that explains this better.

Excel 2007 I have 80 very similar sheets. The only difference is the sheet name (Phase A (1), Phase A (2) etc.). I want the formula located in cell B5 to be different on every sheet.

I have listed the desired formulas on a single seperate worksheet, named "Overview". On this sheet, the following columns have these data in them:

A - Sheetname (example: Phase A (1), Phase A (2) etc.)

B - Cell location (example B5, constant)

C - A formula (example: =Sheet1!G47, =Sheet1!G48, etc.)

I would like to create a macro that will loop through all the sheets, doing the following:

1. Check if the sheetname exists in column A of the Overview sheet

2. If it does, take the formula from column C of the Overview sheet

3. And put it in the cell specified in column B of the Overview sheet

Here is some code, to illustrate the above. I know the code is mostly nonsensical.

Code:

Sub Enter_formulas()

Dim ws As Worksheet

For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets

[Code]....

I need a formula that will place the numbers in cell A into the cells in B C and D. The formula cannot be an array because for some reason my mac is very stubborn about arrays and I can't do them. If possible I would like each individual number to appear no more than once. That's why 4 and 3 only appear once.

It would also be nice if you could order them from smallest to greatest but if you can only do that with arrays then I suppose I can just get the same result with more clicks of the button.

Surely it's user error, but it honestly seems like Excel is not calculating 2 numbers correctly. At work, we have office 2010 where it is not calc'ing correctly; at home I have 2007 and it's fine, but anyway, here's my situation:

Cell A1: 0.003529

Cell B1: 0.48

If i put in Cell C1: "=B1/A1" i get a value of 136.000000 But that's not correct, it should be 136.01587... But if in Cell C1 i put "=0.48/.003529" then i get 136.01587...which is correct.

Why does using cell references in my formula give me the incorrect value?

I am an Excel 2007 user.

I have a formula (below) that looks only at records based on specific filtering criteria or conditions; one of those conditions is the month of the year: ('Data Dump'!$Q:$Q,Summary!$A$26). This portion of the formula would change as a month is selected.

Opposed to having to rewrite the formula every time that I want to view a specific month, I want to automate the formula to change the first condition when a user selects a month from Column A. This would be a real time, automatic refiltering and recalculation as the user selects different months from Column A

Current Formula that filters and shows only January records.

=COUNTIFS('Data Dump'!$Q:$Q,Summary!$A$26,'Data Dump'!$D:$D,Summary!$A$2,'Data Dump'!$M:$M,Summary!C$2)

Column A (January is in cell A26)

April

I have a series of numbers going down from max to min in column M, in column N I have the number of counts of the same numbers.

The Modal value is calculated by a formula and already displayed in cell F3 (it needs no modification).

What I am trying to do is this:

1) Identify the address of the same modal value in column M.

2) From the modal values address in column M, search Column N searching upwards and downwards from the modal value address, until the first instance of the pre-specified count number is identified.

3) When the pre-specified count number is identified look beside in the cell in column M and display the value beside that pre-specified count in cell.

We stop at the first instance of that prespecified count both when 1) counting upwards and 2) counting downwards.

The upper value is displayed in F2 and the lower value is displayed in F4.

An example would be.

1 1

2 2

3 3

4 4

5 6

6 1

7 2

8 3

9 4

10 1

The modal value is 5 looking beside it as it has 6 counts, so in the count column we search upwards from the count of 6 until we encounter the pre-specified number of 4, then we look beside the count of 4 and observe that the number 4 above the modal value has 4 counts hence we display the number, now we search downwards from 6 counts until we reach the first instance of 4 we find it and the cell beside it contains the number 9 so we display the number 9.

The end result is numbers 4 and 9 that have 4 counts each.

Using Excel 2007, I have a very simple spreadsheet made up of only two worksheets that I am using to track the songs played by a band during a current tour.

One worksheet is called "Summary" and the other is called "Setlists". In the Setlists worksheet I list every show played (10 shows so far), and every song played from each show. In the Summary worksheet I have very song listed that has been played during the tour in one column (A), then the number of times that song has been played in another column (B). Column B, the number of times each song has been played, is populated by a COUNTIF function that looks at the Setlists worksheet and counts each instance of each song.

What I want to do, very simply, is to sort on column B in order to display the list of songs from the most played to least played. That is where I run into a problem. When I sort my list of numbers, I end up with a seemingly random list that certainly isn't from most to least and I can't figure out why.

Is it possible that the COUNTIF function which populates that column of numbers is somehow throwing off the sort?

I have a Excel 2007 spreadsheet of part numbers and quantities sold. In the spreadsheet we have similar part numbers, but my sumif command is adding these together. the parts are :

0124225031

R124225031

My column of part numbers is formatted as text

My formula is this =SUMIF(Sheet1!H:H,A16,Sheet1!Q:Q) where H is the part number and Q is the quanity

I tried adding a format command in the sumif command, but it returned a 0. =SUMIF(Sheet1!H:H,format(A16,"0"),Sheet1!Q:Q)

better formula and why is excel adding different part numbers together?

I have a column in my data set that consists of dates and times in this format: 2014/08/02 01:46:49 PM. I am trying to convert these dates and times to numbers so that I can actually use these values for calculations and regression analysis. When I click on one of the cells, I get a number that is revealed along with decimals. For example, the cell with 2014/08/02 01:46:49 PM had a stored value of 41853.574. I tried to highlight the entire column of dates + times and click on the format cells button. I selected the number category under number but that did not work. I also tried to use the =DateValue(Cell #) function but that did not allow for distinguishing between the same date but different times.

What are my options for converting these dates and times to numbers that I can work with? Is there a way to get the entire column of dates + times to show each cell's numeric stored value?

In the attached spreadsheet I would like to locate the peak values of the numbers in column "F". I don't know if this is best done with a series of functions or by using a macro.

Column "F" translates to the light blue line on the attached chart. Column "F" (MACD) is the difference between a 12 week exponential moving average (EMA) and a 26 week EMA.

I would like the peak values from column "F" re-stated into column J,K,L or M. Ideally I would like to find the highest peak that occurred in a rolling 12 weak period. So not all peaks would need to be posted. By doing this I would only be identifying longer trends .

I'm using Excel 2007. 25 years experience using Excel and functions. Limited experience with Macros though long ago I used to write C code.

I've got a main workbook (excel 2007) with a main spreadsheet where i group all the information (text and values) about brands and models linked to 10 workbooks (brands) with several spreadsheets (one spreadsheet=one model).

On the main spreadsheet I've got 16 lines for each model which they have the follow formulas, wich are linked to other workbook / spreadsheet (Mar/Gato)

1)

IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(V844;[Mar.xlsx]Gato!$A$3:$CE$78;3;FALSE));"";VLOOKUP(V844;[Mar.xlsx]Gato!$A$3:$CE$78;3;FALSE))

and will return text values

2)

IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(V844;[Mar.xlsx]Gato!$A$3:$CE$78;82;FALSE));"";VLOOKUP(V844;[Mar.xlsx]G!$A$3:$CE$78;82;FALSE))

And will return number values

3)

IF(M844<>"";HLOOKUP($V$3;[Mar.xlsx]Gato!$A$2:$CE$78;2;FALSE);"")

And will return number values. The return value (;2 goes from 2 to 16.

This process repeats to all the 10 workbooks e and 250 spreadsheets

4) Table Array of the model spreadsheet

With regard to formula 1) and 2)

The problem is that the table array (on the model spreadsheet) could have diferent dimensions (becouse the launch year of the model) like this:

A$3:$CE$78 (2009 - Launch year)

A$3:$BR$78 (2010 - Launch year)

A$3:$BE$78 (2011 - Launch year)

A$3:$AR$78 (2012 - Launch year)

A$3:$AE$78 (2013 - Launch year)

And the return column (value) for formula 1) is always ;3;

And the return column (value) for formula 2) are like this:

;82; (2009 - Launch year)

;69; (2010 - Launch year)

;56; (2011 - Launch year)

;43; (2012 - Launch year)

;30; (2013 - Launch year)

;17; (2014 - Launch year)

The difference between above values is 13, it corresponds 12 months and the total column (12+1)

For the formula 3) the table array its the same, the only difference is instead of starting A$3, starts in A$2

5) The update of the formulas 1) 2) 3) for 2014

I'm doing this manually... The formulas are updated like this,for 2013, I've got table array A$3:$AE$78 and the return value (;17, then for 2014 i will have a table array A$3:$AR$78 and the return value will be (;30, and so on

5) Change the network drive

For other reasons I've to change my files to another network drive, something like this:

Q:KPI2014Main File

6) Main Goal

I was thinking using Excel's regular Find and Replace feature to change:

- The network drive designation

- the table array area

- The return value

But I don't know if this process ( Find and Replace) is safe and clean. I'm doing this manually and I've got on the main worbook/sheet 4000 lines with 3 formulas its 12000 operations!I'm on the 350 line....!

The main goal is to update the all formulas (links) to "brand" workbooks and inside "model" spreadsheets automatically with a macro.

We were looking at a list of about 100 FedEx tracking numbers, each 30 characters in length, in an otherwise blank Excel spreadsheet. All tracking numbers in column A.

I used the Conditional Formatting - Highlight Duplicates feature to find any duplicate tracking numbers. It highlighted numerous. We sorted the column smallest to largest to look at two duplicates back to back, but found that there were actually no duplicates. Excel was highlighting values that had the *first 25* characters the same, but it didn't matter what the remaining characters were. For example:

1234567890123456789012345XXXXX and

1234567890123456789012345YYYYY

were highlighted as duplicates of each other.

Excel only looks at the first 25 characters when analyzing duplicates (at least in this specific function). That in and of itself blows my mind. Tracking numbers seem like an abundantly common type of data, and to think that Excel would fail to analyze them in such a simple manner seems impossible to me.

It gets slightly more confusing though. If you back a character off the end of the values, it NO LONGER sees them as duplicates. So...

1234567890123456789012345XXXX and

1234567890123456789012345YYYYY

are NOT highlighted as duplicates while

1234567890123456789012345XXXXX and

1234567890123456789012345YYYYY

ARE highlighted as duplicates. So there's some funny business going on about values of the same character length. Maybe Excel first looks at character length before analyzing specific characters. If length doesn't match, it doesn't even bother to analyze specific character values. That seems like a very strange programming choice though.
