Excel 2010 :: Formula To Determine If Duplicate Values Exist In Single Column (excluding Empty Cells)
Jun 29, 2012
1 workbook, 2 worksheets (or tabs). On tab 1, I want a formula/alert that tells the user if any duplicate values exist in Column A of tab 2
Tab 2, Column A, has Unique ID's (6 digit numeric values)
The user manually inputs the ID's on new rows in Column A
Row 1 is reserved and in use for something else
Row 2 is my header, so cell A2 says "ID"
Row 3-623 currently contain unique ID's
When the user inputs a new ID into cell A624, then they return to Tab 1, I want my formula/alert on Tab 1 to tell the user that they have duplicates in Column A of tab 2. I know the Conditional Formatting, but if the user copies in 100 new values, they won't necessarily see the highlighted cells. My tab 1 is my "checks and balances" and the last place the user is suppposed to look to ensure that they haven't created any duplicate ID's. If the user sees a warning message that says duplicates exist, then I'll tell them that they need to look at column A (for cells that have been conditionally highlighted).
One issue that I'm running into with the conditional highlighting is that I want cells A3:A1048576 to already have the conditional formatting - this way when the user inserts a value into Cell A624, then A625, etc they conditional formatting is already there. Right now with data in cells A3:A623, cells A624:A1048576 are all highlighted with the Red/Bold Red Font (which is okay I guess), but ideally it would be nice to not count 2+ empty cells as duplicates and I'll have to have my formula on Tab 1 not include the blank cells.
I DO NOT want to use the Remove Duplicates feature of Excel 2010. If I remove them I could be removing data in columns B, C, D, etc that belong to the Unique ID. I just need the user to be told in Tab 1 that they DO have duplicates and I'll train the user how to research this and fix it.
The reason I want to look for duplicates in the entire Column A is because the list of Unique ID's will grow over time.
I want to do, is search column A for claim numbers that match. When I do have a matching claim number, I want to concatenate the original cells ownership field with the said matching cells ownership field (or move into a column in the same row, I can always concatenate later). Once that is complete, I want to delete the row I took the information out of.
I want to join this data in ArcGIS, but as of right now, it's not a 1-to-1 relationship, so only a relate works. That doesn't help me as I want to display claims by ownership, and this can vary per claim. Company A may have 100% on one claim, and then split another claim 50% with Company B.
This causes a double entry on the claim field in this current spreadsheet I have, which requires me to clean it up by making multiple columns of ownership vs. an additional row for shared ownership.
Column A Column B 1235555 Company A (50%) 1235555 Company B (50%) 1235556 Company A (100%) 1235557 Company A (33%) 1235557 Company B (33%) 1235557 Company C (33%)
What I would like to see
Column A Column B Column C Column D 1235555 Company A (50%) Company B (50%) 1235556 Company A (100%) 1235557 Company A (33%) Company B (33%) Company C (33%)
I'm new to VBA and macros, using Excel 2010, and am trying to figure out how to delete all duplicate rows in a sheet where 2 or less of their values in column A is "1". I'd like have a script that is flexible enough to change to 3 or less if need be. I also have a header row that needs to be offset in the process.
A---B- 0--123 <-delete 0--123 <-delete 0--123 <-delete 1--123 <-delete based on this the value of column A 0--123 <-delete 0--123 <-delete 1--321 1--321 1--321 1--321 1--321
A---B- 0--123 <-delete 0--123 <-delete 1--123 <-delete 1--123 <-delete based on this the value of column A 0--123 <-delete 0--123 <-delete 1--321 1--321 1--321 1--321 1--321
I'd like to apply multiple formula to a set of cells on a summary page. My summary page also contains 3 variable dropdowns, and I'd like to display data based on the text selected in those dropdowns (pulling data from 2nd tab "Variables")
The following formula works in the first instance:
=IF(AND(H4="Product Type A1", H6="External", H8="Existing"), Variables!C4, 0)
What I'm struggling to do is add additional formula to the same cell in order to deal with the remaining eventualities of the drop down variables:
Variable 1: Product Type A1 Product Type A2 Product Type B1 Product Type B2
Trying to figure out a VB Script but don't know where to start.
I have a sheet for each month. lets take September 2013
A Column with 200 Servers (A1:A200) on the Intranet listed as server-1/, Server-2/ Server-3 ... Server-200/ Each Server lists a location of a file for each day (31 columns per row)
I am trying to check for the existence of the files on each server (The Cells contain the URL and File Name in Range B2:AF201) starting with server-1 check the URL in B2 if it exists, go to C2, Continue with that row until the file check is False (The Page will show a 404 error) if not found delete cell url and continue. do this for all 200 rows
I created a spreadsheet for use by the shipping department where I work. We are trying to prevent pulling and shipping the incorrect item to the customer. This is how it works. The employee downloads a CSV file containing items that have been purchased from our website and imports the file into the excel. Then the item is pulled and the employee scans the item's barcode into the spreadsheet named "SCAN." Formulas and code on the "reference" sheet look for the SKU number in the list from the CSV file while others create a consolidated list of SKUs that have been scanned, SKUs that have a problem and need to go to customer service, and SKUs from the CSV file that have yet to be scanned. Some of the formulas in this workbook have been borrowed from forums like this and altered to fit my needs - I'll admit I'm not even entirely sure how they work.
Occasionally a SKU is scanned in twice and not always sequentially which will effect the total item count. It can be very difficult to find the duplicates in the list.
I would like for any value that appears more than once in column B of the 'SCAN' sheet to be highlighted. I have tried to do this, but to no avail.
Scan Below FWD: CS? If FWD: CS, state reason below: Status NOT SCANNED FWD to CS SHIPPED
I am using Excel 2010 and have the problem as shown in the attached file.
Input Sheet shows the Data I have at present Output Sheet is the desired result.
I need a macro which should create an "Output" sheet by doing the following on the Input Sheet
1)Insert a Blank Column before Column A 2)Unmerge the Region Heading and insert the respective Region Name in the newly inserted Column. Region Heading will be in Bold Font. 3)Repeat Step 2 for all Regions 4)Delete the Rows which was merged.
Please note that the number of Data Rows will vary for each Region.
I have shown two Regions for explanation purpose only. There will be several Regions in reality.
I need a macro that will examine column A starting at A2 and working its way down copying the data in the first cell (A2) and then delete that row. If the next cells are empty (usually the next 5 cells) it should paste this copied value in each of the empty cells until it comes to the next cell with data in it. At this point it should copy this next value and delete the subsequent row and copy this value in each of the empty cells directly following (again, usually 5) until it finds the next cell that has data in it. At this point, again the whole process begins again repeating it self until it comes to the end where no more data is.
I have a sheet (see Sheet 1) from a report we run which lists the following information: Personnel Number, Amount, Wage Type. This is generated for 1000's of employees, with each personnel number being repeated several times in column A.
I am trying to pull specific data to another sheet (see Sheet 2), which would ideally generate the sum of "Amount' for a specific wage type for each personnel number. The issue is is that there may be dplicates of the wage type for each ID number (which is also repeated).
For example, the total salary amount on sheet 2 for ID#12345678 would be 0, while for #9876543 it would be 1250. Is there a formula I could use on sheet 2 column B that would generate this?
I have a long list of data with many columns and I'd like all the information to be in one column without manually copying and pasting each column and adding to the first column. The data has different amounts of rows and columns as well. An Example is below. I'm using Excel 2010. Is there a formula or something for this? This isn't the data I'm using but just an example since I do this frequently.
What I'm trying to do. I have two separate requirements:
(1) To add the whole array to a listbox on form initialization - see Sub UserForm_Initialize() (2) To clear the listbox and re-add only certain items based on what's typed in a textbox - see Sub txtSearchTerm_Change()
I have two errors:
Error 1 in UserForm_Initialize()
The listbox contents need transposing! It is displaying as
Code: 1 2 3 4 5 Tom Ben Heidi Julie Mark Smith Jones Evans Simpson Petersen email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com 02071001022 02071001026 02071001027 02071001028 02071001029 Friend
When it should be displaying as : Code: 1 Tom Smith firstname.lastname@example.org 02071001022 Friend 2 Ben Jones email@example.com 02071001026
Is there a way to transpose the array?
Error 2 in txtSearchTerm_Change()
I cannot find anywhere - even on MSDN - all the information I need how to correctly add a single record to a multiple-column listbox! What I'm trying is:
Code: For i = 0 To UBound(SearchList) If InStr(1, SearchList(i), SearchTerm) 0 Then With lstPeople .AddItem For j = 0 To UBound(PeopleList, 1) .List(c, j).Value = PeopleList(j, i)
How do I add a record to the listbox????
Full code for reference:
Private PeopleList As Variant Private SearchList As Variant Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
At work, we've got a program that outputs the results of a search into an Excel file, in column 1 below.
17,43,61,63 17 43 61 63
23,29,53,57,77,79 23 29 53 57 77 79
17,29,63,69,71,75,79 17 29 63 69 71 75 79

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.
Is there a function that will count a column of numbers where that will eliminate counting empty cells based on a certain date that will also capture any numbers that is added after refreshing the table from Access? I have attached a spreadsheet for an example. I need to count on the number in column V that equals 13 for the date of 12/22/09.
In this data, as you can see there are a lot of cells/rows that are empty. I have a macro that will copy the cells F98:F120 to F99:F121 and then copy F121 to F98, and finally delete the value from F121. In this case, it will give me a blank cell at the top and the data hasn't rotated really. All the names will be in same position.
But I DON'T want that. I want the macro to look for the last cell/row with a valid value in it and rotate the cells so that I end up having ACCIARITO at the top and everybody else to move down one row.
We have recently converted to Office 2010 from 2007 I have now got a name conflict with some macros on my templates
I have some code which will open up the affected templates delete the required modules & import the amended modules, this is working OK.
I now have to re assign the new macro to each button on all pages on all my templates., I started of by recording the actions to achieve this (see part of the code), but unfortunately the recorded code will not work, it runs but when I test the buttons I get the message that "this macro does not exist in this work book".
I have a form with a main list box and several other list boxes. I drag and drop records from the main list box to the others. When I drop a record onto one of the list boxes, a corresponding worksheet is updated with the same record. This works just fine.
The problem I have is:I close and re-open the form after having added some dataDrag/Drop a record to the list boxThe worksheet won't find the first empty rowExample: If the worksheet already contains 4 rows of data, I have to drag/drop 5 times before the fifth row will be updatedI would like to drop the data the first time and have the first blank row updated
1.) I have tried variations of "xlUp", "xlDown", and SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell) in the "Worksheets("Monday")... line of code; all to no avail.
2.) The cells contain formatting (borders)
Here is the relevant code:
'Copy items from the list box to the worksheet For intI = 1 To ListBox2.ListCount For intJ = 1 To ListBox2.ColumnCount If IsEmpty(Worksheets("Monday").Cells(intI + 1, intJ)) Then Worksheets("Monday").Cells(intI + 1, intJ).Value = ListBox2.List(intI - 1, intJ - 1) End If Next intJ Next intI
My Excel program (Excel 2010) currently has several columns and each column looks for and pulls data from a specific file on my computer. Then I need to delete any duplicate data entries, count the number of unique entries and track the changes through a chart. I have everything done except I cannot figure out (or find on the internet) a way to search in multiple columns (more than 2) and delete just the duplicate cells. I want to delete the cells in a way where there is one left. For example if the code 12gf is duplicated three time, I want to be left with one 12gf (it doesnt matter what column the original one is left in). Additionally, column length changes and they are not sorted. I have attempted to attach an image of an example file below.
I've got a column of client company names and because it is based from accounts, the companies names appear many times. I just need to populate a new column with unique names, so I have found a formula to do this:
However when I do this, I CtrlShiftEnter and drag to copy that down, and it's just a copy of the original list - client names are appearing on my new list multiple times. I don't see how this doesn't work... I'm using 2013.
I am trying to come up with a formula that will count everything excluding 1 in one row, while looking at another row to determine the group. The attached example explains things a lot better.
I am going to have 2 formulas. 1 for the "Big" group and one for the "Small" The formula needs to look first at the column that has the group in it. Then it needs to count everything is column A excluding "Snake" And return the value.
I'm attempting to count the empty cells in column C which correspond with the project reference shown in column A. I only want to perform this calculation where the project numbers change (see desired results in column D).
Am struggling with finding a way to define the different range of rows for each project ref within the formula. The full sheet has over 6000 rows and 1500 project refs.
What i'm trying to do is i would like to compile in 1 column all duplicate values from multiple cells.
ex. A1 to 10 is numbered 1 to 10 respectively, B1 to B10 is numbered 6 to 15 respectively. which means in A1:B10 the duplicate values are 6,7,8,9,10. i could like these number to show automatically in C1 to C5.
