# Excel 2007 :: Count Number Of Cells In A Range That Have Text

Feb 7, 2012
I'm using excel 2007, here's what I need.

I want to count the number of cells in a range that have text in them (any text at all) but not count them if they have numbers in them or are blank. How would this formula be written?

I export data into Excel format from a corporate reporting tool. 1 column includes a product description in text format, however, due to the many different products I need to count the number of cells based on a single word in the product description.

Hypothetical Example:

The report contains various information about vehicles. The product description exports to a single column and may include "Ford Fusion", "Ford Focus", "Chevrolet Malibu", "Chevrolet Impala", etc. I only need to count how many cells contain information about Fords and Chevrolets. The model detail is not needed.

I'm able to count if I enter the complete and exact make & model description, but want to avoid this due to the large quantity of products.

I'm using Excel 2007, on Windows 7, 64 Bit Enterprise

Using Excel 2010.

I have data in excel which looks like this:

Column 1 has 1200-1209,1300-1350,1523-1563

Column 2 has 1400-1409,1600-1650,1823-1863

I would like to take the range of e.g. 1200-1209 and have excel put 1200 1201 1202 1203 1204 1205 1206 1207 1208 1209 into separate adjacent cells for me. And be able to do this for each column/cell of data I have like this.

Column 1 1200

Column 2 1201

Column 3 1202

Like that only. Is it possible?How?

I want to count the number of duplicate rows where the exact text in columns A and B match. An example is as follows, where column C would be the desired result. Note that there are hundreds of different text values of column A and hundreds of column B, I just simplified the example.

I am wondering how can I count different color condition color cells?

I am currently using this UDF,

Code:

Function ColorFunction(rColor As Range, rRange As Range, Optional SUM As Boolean)

Dim rCell As Range

Dim lCol As Long

Dim vResult

[Code]...

However, this code count the entire conditioned color cells that I have. What I want is for the code to count two different colors within the same column range (like B1:B10). For example, I have 3 red color cells in range B1:B10 and 7 green color cells in range B1:B10. So, I want it to count 3 and 7 seperately rather than giving me the total of 10.

Important Note: As it is a conditioned coloring, there is no fixed coloring as to which cell will have the red or green since it is based on conditions.

One last time, I am using Excel 2007.

I am applying conditional formatting on a range of cells. I have 2 conditions to color cells in different colors. Once I enter data, cells get colored corectly according to conditions. What I want is to count how many cells are colored by conditional formatting.

I tried using VBA --- Evaluate formula for each cell and count if TRUE.

I observed, for Excel 2007, as the condition is applied on the range, I expect the formula to be changed dynamically for each cell with appropriate addresses, like for A1, if am referring to cell C1, for A2 it should automatically refer to C2.

And excel takes care of this cells are colored correctly,however, when I try to check the 'FormatCondition' in VBA, I get only one formula for entire range. SO I can not use evaluate to find if the condition is satisfied or not ?

I have a .csv open in Excel 2007 that looks like the following

Code:

1 566

1 566

1 566

2 341

2 341

3 566

3 566

3 566

3 566

...

There is a one-to-one relationship between Column A and B, but B is not unique (but can only take a small set of valid values). I wish to query how many id's (Column A) contain a particular property (Column B). If the example above ended before the "...", I would like to get as the output:

Code:

566 2

341 1

because the property 566 is owned by two id's (1 and 3) and the property 341 is only owned by the id 2.

I know different variations of this question get asked all the time... but I can't find an answer that I'm sure will *always* do what I want.

I have a range of cells (A1:A10), and I want to count all the text entries of positive length. That is to say, I don't want to count:

blanks

numbers

zeros

spaces

errors

I'm sure I need to use the LEN function, but I can't quite figure out how.

this counting expression will be inserted in a SUMPRODUCT formula

I've used the below, for example in Column E, the actual data starts in row 4, so I can't use the full E:E syntax:

=IF(ISERROR(INDEX(Data!E$4:E$65000,MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307,Data!E$4:E$65000))),

INDEX(Data!E$4:E$65000,MATCH("z",Data!E$4:E$65000)),

INDEX(Data!E$4:E$65000,MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307,Data!E$4:E$65000)))

The above basically checks for a number, and if fails (there could be #N/A, #DIV/0!, text, or Number-stored-as-text in any cell here), it checks for text. (the 65000 is arbitrary; we will never have more than a few thousand rows)

However this is not reliable--the main problem seems to be number-stored-as-text. And it's not possible for me to do the Paste-Special Multiply *1 trick to convert the numbers because this data is dynamically generated from a database--the user would have to do that every time the sheet opens.

Is there not some formula that simply says: "Give me the last non-blank cell after row 4 in column E, regardless of what type of data"? (Excel 2007)

I have a text file that I need to open in MS Excel 2007. The file contains the following data. (Each column is delimited by the "|" character.)

Part #|Inventory ID

1743|213,221

1864|10,40

1948|1170,1180

5265|100,104,107,10004

Ultimately, I need three columns but the data needs to look the same as it did before I opened the file.

When I open the file for the first time, I use “Text to Columns” to delimit the fields by the "|" character. The problem is that the Inventory IDs in the middle column get a bit whacky.

Here's what I'm left with:

Part # Inventory ID

1743 213,221

1864 10,40

1948 11,701,180

5265 10,010,410,710,004

The comma is retained appropriately when there are two 2- or 3-digit Inventory IDs.

When a row has multiple, longer Inventory IDs or Inventory IDs that vary in length, the comma is moved to every 3rd decimal place.

I tried putting quotation marks around the data before I opened the text file for the first time but that didn’t do anything. I tried Custom Formatting to retain the comma position (0000,0000) but this only worked when I had two 4 digit IDs. I also changed the number type to Text and General. Once the comma was changed, I couldn’t figure out how to get it back.

How to best retain the format of my Inventory IDs.

I'm trying to develop a new daily timesheet for my production workers, where non-production items are recorded in 15 minute intervals. The user would put in "Clock in" by the corresponding time, and the same for "Clock out" at the end of the day. Any non-production items will be type in next to their appropriate time. Since clock in and clock out times will vary, I need to set up a formula that searches the array of cells for the day, finds the "Clock in" and "Clock out" values, and counts any blank cells in between them. Basically the blank cells will equal production time, and the result of the Count function will be multiplied by 0.25 to get the hours.

I am having a very difficult time finding a way to set the "Clock in" and "Clock out" cells as the range for the Count function, because it won't always be the same cells. What would be the best way to automatically have excel find the cells containing these values and set them as the range criteria for a Count function?

The formula at the bottom was one of my initial attempts, but it didn't work. I took out the '=' for the screenshot, so that wasn't the problem.

I am wanting to create a validation rule so when two cells are added the together the answer must be less than or equal to 14:00 - otherwise a message box will appear

So for example if H7+I7 gives an answer of 13:00 in J7, that's OK, but if the answer is 15:00, the error box will appear. I know that data validation doesnt work on a cell that already has a formula so I'm hoping to use K7 for the Validation and then hide the column

I have a worksheet with four data columns A,B,C,D starting in row 2. I want to add between every row, exactly 11 blank rows. So if we have:

Code:

A B C D

1 5 3 4

2 7 6 3

3 9 1 3

the end result should be:

Code:

A B C D

1 5 3 4

2 7 6 3

3 9 1 3

Do I necessarily need a macro for this? Or is there another quick and creative way to achieve this result?

I receive spreadsheets which tell me where samples are located in 96 well plates. The plates' rows are lettered A-H, and the columns are numbered 1-12. So, for example, the first well is labeled A1, the 12th is A12, the 13th is B1, and the 96th is labeled H12.

When I receive the spreadsheets, there are cells that tell me which wells are occupied. For example a cell will contain "A2 - B7" or "D3-F12" (sometimes with the spaces before and after the "-", and sometimes not." I need a program that will tell me that "A2-B7" (or "A2 - B7") means there are 18 wells occupied.

I've tried a few things, but a lot of problems arise when I try to do anything with names like "A1" because excel already defines "A1" as cell A1. Do you guys have any ideas? Am I being clear?

I have a column that is filled with different names. Some names appear more than once. There is one name in fact that appears four times.

I am looking for a formula, or VBA if that's necessary, that will look through the range Y2:Y50, and return a value of 4, because the person that has the most duplicates, her name appears 4 times.

If everyone's name appeared only once, except for a person whose name was in that range twice, then the formula would return a 2.

I want to count the number of times a word appears in a range (like M9:S663), but sorting it by the month it appears (eg: january = 2, february = 56, march = 2000, etc.)

I managed to do this but there has to be a better way

=COUNTIFS(RNM.1;"PRUM Transcripcion";FechaComite;">=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";

FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";

FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"

I am trying to count the number of specific words contained in a specific cell. If my data were static, and the list of keywords was short, there are many solutions such as using multiple instances of the length function as proposed by @shg here.

Suppose I have the following sheet: (column C is what I am trying to achieve)

A

B

C

1

[Code]....

That is, C2 will tell that B2 contained 3 of the keywords (1X beautiful, 2X happy) and so on.

I am trying to find a way to see if a range of cells contain (not exactly, just contains) the text in another cell.

For example:

A1 Fred Flintsonte 2012 B1 Barney Rubble C1 Barney Rubble

A2 Barney Rubble 2012

If a cell in range A1:A2 contains text in B1 (CASE INSENSITIVE), then C1 equals B1

I've tried entering this formula in C1, but it does not work:

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(B1,A1:A2)), B1, "")

I have a spreadsheet where i would like to 'count' the number of cells with a particular colour AND SPECIFIC text (not 'any text').

I attach a xls with the initials of the person in column A, their colour as seen in cells in next four columns with the particular text in each cell. Therefore, for 'ABC1', in the given range, I would like to count how many cells have been allocated with the particular colour (brown, do not know colour index) and the particular text (1 or 2 or 4 or 5) in the range A1:CK39. Haven't supplied the actual sheet for confidentiality reasons.

I have a function which copy pastes data into a sheet based on a filter criteria. It is also pasted in a specific layout(shown below) starting from Cell A1 in the top left corner. Therefore the destination sheet could have a different number of rows with values each time.

What I would like to do is count the sum of 'Values' in the destination sheet, and add a total below it.

For example, the [=TOTAL] cell is where I want the total to appear. Below the answer would be 26. But say if Peter wasnt in the record, the formula should still work in identifying the Total as 20.

Title:

Sheridan

Owner

Petrov G

[Code]....

Is there a way I can achieve the desired result? I figured I had to somehow count from the first record by Peter, to the last one, whichever that may be.

appending excel sheet number in a formula. Here is the example.

In an excel book, I have sheets 1 to 50. In each sheet i have a standard format to enter the details. And in one sheet I want to keep some summary with required cells. I made a table by applying formula, for example in cell A1 i kept formula ='9'!$D$9. In this '9' refers sheet9. In the similar way i want to capture the data from all sheets.

A1 cell ='9'!$D$9

A2 cell ='10'!$D$9

A3 cell ='11'!$D$9....etc

Is there any formula to append the Sheet number automatically (like dragging the shell) intead changing sheet number manually. because it is wasting so much time.

Using Excel 2007.

I have shapes in 3 different rnages of cells on a cell worksheet:

R1 = $D$5:$D & lngRows (row=32)

R2 = $G$5:$G & lngRows (row = 51)

R3 = $M$5:$M & lngRows (row = 50)

I need to set the properties of the shapes in each range differently The shapes in R1 are Left + 46 But the shapes in the other 2 ranges need to be just left My problem is in this bit

Code:

'Set properties for each shape in ShapeRange
