Excel 2010 :: Count Number Of Populated Cells Containing Formulas?

Jun 26, 2013

Excel 2010

Sheet 1 contains range B12:B353 with names of people. Sheet 2 range B12:B353 contains a formula to extract the names from Sheet 1 if range D12:D353 contains a certain value:

=IF(Sheet1!D12:D354="A",(Sheet1!B12:B353)," ")

At the bottom of each column in Sheet 2 I am trying to get a total count of populated cells (a running count of names actually visible). I have inserted formula:

=COUNTA(B12:B353)

Which should count the number of cells with text in them, right? But I believe it's somehow counting the formula as text because I inserted the value of "A" in Sheet 1 Column D for 3 names. It returned a number of 331 at the bottom of my column in Sheet 2. First off, a return of 331 doesn't make sense in any way (still scratching my head at this return. It should have returned a value of 3.

I have data arranged in a worksheet (see attachment) that has hours of work broken down by day. What I need is a formula that will find the number of times a record occurred in Column F that is greater than or equal to 12 hours each day. So for March 1st there would be 9 times. I can do that now with no problem using "=COUNTIF(F4:F14,">=12")" However, the real thing that I need is how many days of each month were there only 1 count (of 12 hours or more). So it needs to look at the range of data that goes from 3/1/13 to 3/31/13 and find the total number of days that had 1 count (of 12 hours or more) each day and return the number of days it found.

I'm doing a study of when people are most productful in their day. I just need to count how many units a person made within say 4 hours of starting work.

How do I enter a formula in excel 2010 that will give the total amount of times each number is in this group. Example : how many times (total) the number 12 showed up , how many times the number 27 showed, and so on for each number that is in the entire group of numbers, from 1 to 80 .

Here is the page I will copy and paste into a workbook sheet from the internet that i want to evaluate the times each number was called.

Very new to all this , I am a bit aged and need not to learn excel A to Z, just need to know what correct statements /formulas have to be entered to do what i desire.

I am only interested in the total count of the small bold numbers 1 to 80, each single digit 1 to 9 and double digits 10 to 80 will be in their separate cells. The large bold three digit numbers and dates/times will have to be erased (manually) before the calculation takes place.

I have attached a sheet as an example, as i am trying to Divide a cell by the number of populated cells in that column e.g column (A) has a table of 16 but only has 13 populated cells in that column, the sum would be something like this =sum(A18/13. Sometimes the column will have less and at times more populated.

I am sure this should be REALLY simple, but i just can't find the answer i'm looking for. I have a sheet which changes daily in quantity of information. I want some simple code which counts up the number of populated cells in column A and returns the answer to a cell in another worksheet - or just automatically use it to print that number of pages.

I think i should be able to do the printing side, but, currently have no idea how to count up the number of populated cells in the row. If someones feeling very generous though, giving me the code for printing that number of pages too would save me some work (the worksheet which needs printing is different to the worksheet which needs the number of cells adding up.)

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.

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 am looking for a way to highlight groups of identical number cells in alternating grey and white. My goal is to make it clear when there is a repeating set of numbers. Below is an example of what a completed state of this would look like that I created manually. The real form I will be using this code on will have long number which is why I am looking for this added clarification. I am using excel 2010.

For various reasons, I need to determine how many total calculations are being performed in a spreadsheet. These can be IF statements, sum, max, vlookups etc but I am looking to determine the quantity. I do not need to know how many of each just how many in total.

Is there a relatively simple method of conducting this search? I don't mind VBA code, etc.

I need to know if it is possible to combine these 2 formulas (1. (RIGHT(C23,0)&RIGHT(C23,4)) and 2. LEFT(E23,2)&":"&RIGHT(E23,2) into a single cell. I have a date time group that is in text format. I need to take the last 4 digits (the time) and pull it out into another. Then take that cell and convert it into an actual time ie 2:30.

example: 01may2014 0831 first formula pulls the 0831 into another cell. then the 2nd formula converts it into a time 8:31.

After this occurs, I can then subtract times from different categories in my spreadsheet.

My, problem, is that I cannot combine the two formulas. They work great by themselves. I am just trying to make formulas more compact and hopefully more efficient.

I am looking over spreadsheets in a new job, and I am coming across formulas I am unfamiliar with?

For example, =(G16*G17/C13-G24)*hrs and =I25*elec.

hrs and elec??

After using the "Trace Precedents" feature, the "hrs" and "elec" are still a mystery to me. Are these variables that the creator of the spreadsheet has defined? They don't appear to be named data sets because they exist in just a few cells.

I Need to Understand Running Total Sum Formulas. I'm using Excel 2010. and I'm typing in the basic correct formula to arrive at a running total for each ajacent cell to the left of it.

I put in the correct formula in Cell (B1) of Sum=(A1)

I then put in the correct formula in Cell (B2) Sum=(A1:A2) I then highlight the A1 part of the formula with an F4 Key to lock it in.

I then drag the B2 Cell all the way down the excel page to capture all of my running total coming from the (A) Column just to the left of my formula.

Why even though I'm getting the answers I want in the running total does it put an error message in each of the correct answers in each of the cells in the (B) column where I put my formulas.

I tryed to delete the error message spot but I don't know how to delete all of the error spots without going into each cell one by one.

How can I get rid of all the error message out of each cell without having to click on each cell one by one to do it when I might have over 500 or more cells to click on.

I am running Excel 2007 on Windows Vista Business 32 bit. Recently I have noticed that if I enter a formula into an empty, unsused cell, it is recognized as a formula. If I modify that formula, it is then recognized as text and does not work as a formula. The only way I can get the cell to recognize a formula is to delete the cell and start over. This same scenario does not occur on previously stored workbooks. I have checked all of the flags that I know about, including the Options function.

I recently received an .xls book which I then saved as .xlsx (I'm using 2010). There are just under 8,000 rows and 20 columns. File Size 1MB.

The only formulas in the sheet are the ones in a column which I inserted and copied down for all 8,000 rows. Nothing too complicated: no arrays or anything. The sheet calculates fine.

I am simply trying to copy and paste these formulas as values (into the same cells), though at every attempt Excel crashes. I tried on smaller sets of the column and just got it to work for a few hundred rows, though it struggles with any more than that.

I opened a different workbook of mine, and tried the same operation on twice as many cells containing complicated, lengthy array formulas and the action completed instantly.

There is no Conditional Formatting in the book, no code, no 'last cell' issue, no Named Ranges, no external links.

I have even copied the data to a new workbook, then copied the text of just one of the formulas over into this book, added an equals sign, copied down and recalculated, then tried to paste as values again. Still crashes.

is far more resource-hungry than I thought, though if that were the case, wouldn't the issue be during calculation (which, as I said, is fine) and not during a paste attempt? No, it can't be this.

I have an excel file with 2 sheets. Sheet 1 has a column that contains formulas (ie (18299*11151)/20067 ) Those numbers are IDs referencing questions stored in Sheet 2. What I would like to do is find a way to look up those questions and place them into the formula instead of the ID numbers.

Still adjusting to 2010 Excel...How do you use the automatic fill in feature of formulas; e.g. when typing =convert....a fx function appears....not sure how to use it

I am trying to find the frequency of lottery numbers that occur within 10-day periods (see row 7). Instead of having to manually write each formula for each column, is there a way I can automate it, so that each column will "advance" 10 days?

I am monitoring tank levels using a program called "PI". I need to know if the tank is rising, lowering or staying the same.

I am using conditional formatting to turn red if high, blueif low and yellow if stays the same. Column B, F and J are tank volumns, Column C is in feet and D is in inches.

I am trying to create an inventory list that automatically updates the supply quantity when items are taken away from inventory. I have created entry cells where the quantity of items taken out of inventory can be entered (example, cell F2 of the attachment), and the new overall inventory count is adjusted accordingly for each stock of items (example, cell B3). These automated adjustments are repeated for each subsequent row for every time items have been taken from inventory and recorded.

I managed to get it to do what I originally intended with exception of the fact that it still present values on rows where there were no activity - or quantity of items taken from out of inventory (row #6 and beyond of the attachment). Is there a way of "hiding" these values without removing the formula, or possibly set conditional formatting where no values are displayed if no changes in inventory has been entered?

Is there a way in Excel 2010 that the administrator of a excel document can not only hide some columns but lock the columns by some kind of password so it remains hidden? I know user can hide/unhide columns but can some columns be hiddens and locked with passwords?

Secondly can formulas like IF and vlookups statements be hidden and locked with some kind of password?

In maybe via VBA or by some other means, is this possible?

The end user should only be able to type and select certain cells only.

Lets suppose i have 5 columns of data. 3 of the cols have "formulas" in them and 2 do not. I want to count the number of formulas that are in a given row. Is there a way to do this?

I want to build a little report on another worksheet that goes over the table and counts cells (i.e. data records) based on the entries in the last column (i.e., if the corresponding data-record has an "x" in that column, then it should be counted).

As every data record also carries a numeric value in the "Numbers" column, I wanted to do this with COUNT formula combined with an IF-formula.

The formula to count the corresponding data records that match the criteria then looks something like this:

=COUNT(IF($F$1:$F$6="x";$E$1:$E$6))

However, this always counts all cells in the "Numbers" column. I want the formula only to return the range of "Numbers" cells, that belong to the matched data records.

What formula would I use to count the nonblank cells, if all the cells within the range have formulas in them.

For example, cells A1:A50 each have a formula. As a result of the formula in the cell, 10 of the cells have values or text while the remaining 40 cells appear blank. What formula do I use to count the 10 cells?

I have a problem that when I try to convert text to number and format the number without 2 decimal places as seen on the link I have given below, Instead of 1607.947, I get 1607947. I have Excel 2010 loaded. The details are in below picture.

I need to count the number of equal cells in col D beginning at the top of the column. The counted cells must begin with a text prefix of "Category:" without the quotes.

Some but not all of the cells in col D begin with a prefix of "Category:" without the quotes, followed by a word or words following the word "Category:" See examples below. All of the terms prefixed with "Category:" in col D are in alphabetical order. I need to count the number of identical cells in col D with the "Category:" prefix.

Examples of the contents of cells in col D with the "Category:" prefix are as follows:

Cells above and below cells with a prefix of "Category:" in col D are not adjacent.Cells above and below cells with a prefix of "Category:" in col D are separated by 3 to an undermined number of rows.

I need to count the number of equal cells in col D and insert the count in col A at the last equal term. For example, col A above would have 93, 1, 1, 5, 10, 8, 3, and 12 inserted into col A.
