Find/Count Most Common Words & Phrases In List

Jun 25, 2008

I am attempting to take a very large list of keywords, and find the most common words and phrases within them. For example, if I had a list that said:

excel formulas
excel spreadsheet formulas
excel help
excel formulas help form
formulas for excel

I would like to come away knowing that "excel" and "formulas" are common words within the list.

Currently, I believe this can be accomplished by doing the following:

1. Break down each line into all of its possible combinations.This would mean that the line with "excel spreadsheet formulas" would return:

excel spreadsheet formulas
excel spreadsheet
spreadsheet formulas
excel
spreadsheet
formulas

2. Once the entire list is broken down into its many parts, use the pivot table feature of excel to determine how common each of the parts is within the entire data set.

So, my questions are these:

1. Do you believe this is the best way to solve my problem? If not, what would be the preferred method?
2. If this is the best method, what function or script would I use to accomplish the first step of breaking down the lines into their individual parts?

Find / Count Most Common Phrases In List

Jul 25, 2012

I've found a vb script via Google that displays the most common words in a list followed by a number.

Code:
Sub HTH() Dim vArray As Variant Dim lLoop As Long
Dim rCell As Range With CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
For Each rCell In Range("A1", Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp))

[Code] .......

At the moment this results in 1 word followed by a count.

How do I alter this so it shows 2 or 3 words, ultimately showing the most common phrases?

Find Common Words In Cells And Create New List

May 29, 2005

I have a spreadsheet of part #'s, descriptions, manufacturer names, and manufacturer part #'s. (It's a list of the inventory in my warehouse). Each row contains information for just the item in that row. Row 2 references another part in my warehouse, row 3 yet another, and so on.

Many of the parts have more than one potential manufacturer and part #, (meaning that any of those manufacturer's part #'s are basically the same tool; just different brands. At one time we may get a shipment of one, at other times we may get a shipment of another). For example, a screwdriver may be listed like this:

Part # 1234 screwdriver, mfg Snap-On, part # 456, mfg Stanley, part # 789, mfg Mac Tool, part # 439.

Then further down the list, there may be another part listed like this:

Part # 9980 wrench, mfg Stanley, part #741, mfg Snap-On, part # 852, mfg Proto, part # 369.

If you can imagine that data across the cells of a spreadsheet row, notice how the mfg name 'Snap-On' was the first mfg name on the screwdriver, but it was listed as the 2nd mfg name on the wrench.

So, here's my question: I want to be able to group all of the items made by any one manufacturer together in a new list. If all of the manufacturer names were in the same column, I could simply sort the list by that column, but since I've got thousands of rows with the mfg name I'm looking for in different columns on different rows, I thought maybe a macro could search each row for the word I'm looking for, then if found, take the whole row and copy it to a new worksheet. So the end result would be, If I wanted to see all items of which Snap-On is an acceptable supplier, I could get a list of all potential Snap-On items grouped together.

I'm sorry this is so long. I may have over-worded this and it may not be too clear. I could email an example of the spreadsheet if anyone needed more info to figure out what I'm looking for and was willing to take a look at it.

Find List And Count All Words Within A Text String?

Feb 26, 2014

I have uploaded my spreadsheet.

I have a column of text strings on Sheet1, Column A, which I need to check for the presence of keywords listed on Sheet2, Column A

So if any word from the keyword list on Sheet2, Column A is found in, say, cell A2 of Sheet1, the cell to its right (B1) should have a formula to display the count of keywords found in A2. I also would like to see each keyword identified either through a highlight or a list. I need the formula to NOT be case sensitive and the match does not have to be for whole words).

Macro To Create New Column From Common Words

Jun 4, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with approx 7000 rows, many of which contain the same item but with flavors and other variations on the end. An example would be:

VB:
A B
10142 6kg of whey bundle With Free protein shaker-Banana
10143 6kg of whey bundle With Free protein shaker-Chocolate
10144 6kg of whey bundle With Free protein shaker-Strawberry
10145 6kg of whey bundle With Free protein shaker-Unflavoured
10010 **Bodybuilding Warehouse Premium Whey Probiotic - 2.2kg
10011 **Bodybuilding Warehouse Premium Whey Probiotic - 2.2kg + FREE Shaker

Would it be possible To create a New column (column C) which would display all common words from row b into the New column Like below?

A B C
10142 6kg of whey bundle With Free protein shaker-Banana 6kg of whey bundle With Free protein shaker
10143 6kg of whey bundle With Free protein shaker-Chocolate 6kg of whey bundle With Free protein shaker
10144 6kg of whey bundle With Free protein shaker-Strawberry 6kg of whey bundle With Free protein shaker

[Code] ....

I've attached a larger sample of our list to get a better idea of different variations that are on the spreadsheet.

I think what we need is something similar to this thread[URL] .....

Combining List Of Words Into New Words, Conjugation

Feb 15, 2007

I have 4-5 separate lists of words/letters and I would like to combine them in a certain order but creating all possible combinations resulting a new word. It's like a conjugation tool for verbs. For example if List 1 = be/el/ki/meg; List 2= m List3=e/é; List4= gy/" "; List 5=" "/ek/sz/nnek So the output has to be (if the order is List1+List2+List3+List4+List5)= bemegy/bemegyek/bemegysz/bemesz/bemész/elmegy/elmennek/ ..... and all possible combinations.

Preferentially I would like to automate it in a way that it straight outputs into MS Access. Also can it be automated that it reads the list from a file (database)?
(Also can it recognize the word by letters? Because the basic word that I would load the program= List2+List3+List4)

I am trying to find certain words in a column and delete the word and characters following. For example, Say I have a column of info as seen below. This is a test of me. I am just experimenting with this stuff. Deleted (6/15/01) Let me know what you think. I am not sure about it all, but I guess I will figure it out. riviledge1 (01/05/06) Now let's see what happens when I try to test it.

I want to find all the "Priviledge1 (01/05/06)" and replace with nothing. Please note, the date will change with each record, so I need to figure out how to tell Excel to find "Priviledge1", delete it and the date behind it. So I want to delete "Priviledge1" and the next 11 characters including the space.

Finding Top 3 Most Common From A List?

Apr 14, 2013

I am currently trying to organise a student yearbook for my pupils at school. We have given out sheets to students in order for them to nominate their peers for various awards such as 'Funniest Student', 'Most Caring Student' etc.

I am trying to collate all of the data into an excel workbook. I have made two sheets within a workbook, which I have formatted how I want them to look like. I want to insert all the student's responses into one sheet, and somehow, the top 3 most occurring nominations are found and are inserted into the appropriate cells in the separate sheet.

I have attached a copy of the workbook. Due to data protection the student names and tutor groups have been taken out and replaced with the word "REMOVED", yet I will paste them back in at a later time. So feel free to have a play around to see what I am talking about! I have filled the table with some dummy data just so you can see what I mean.

I am not at all sure how I would go about picking out the top 3 most occurring names for each award, but once I can do that, I will be able to insert them into the other sheet. How to automatically produce the top 3 most occurring names.

Find Common Numbers Between 2 Columns

I need to find out common numbers between columns. Each column has multiple number entries seperated by a comma. For example:

Column A: "5592,12222" and Column B: "1,2,3,4,5592,123123" and Column C: "3, 4"

I need to find out any numbers that are found in more than 1 column. Hence, the result should be something like "3,4,5592". If no match is found then maybe can indicate by coloring the cell. My data is over 50,000 rows and 30 columns. I need to do this for each row one by one.

Find Most Common Occurring String Based On Lookup Value?

- I want to calculate the percent of the chosen value. So in the previous point, A was chosen ~67% of the time by user 234... and so on.

I'm not sure which formula to use. I am able to find the most common occurring value in column B using the formula below (which I found here), but how can I do that for a specific value, a user ID in this case?

Find Common Values Across Multiple Sheets Based On Unique ID

Oct 24, 2013

The old thread is here: [URL] ....

There are three sheets in the workbook, Project, Tasks and Details and the expected resulting sheets are RESULT, In_Tasks_but_NOT_in_Projects and In_Details_but_NOT_in_Projects .

But now what I am looking for:

1. Copy the Projects data as is in the RESULT sheet.

2. Then in the Tasks sheet, if the ID matches paste the matching rows under the data from Projects (as in the result sheet with Orange colour)

3. If the ID is present in Tasks but NOT in Projects then copy it into the In_Tasks_but_NOT_in_Projects sheet.

4. Then If the ID and the Name in the Details tab matches with the data in the RESULT sheet then paste it under the ID and Name (as in the result sheet with Green colour)

5. If the ID does not match the ID in the results sheet then copy that row into the In_Details_but_NOT_in_Projects sheet.

The result of the current macro that RHCPgergo worked with are in the last sheet.

The formatting and colour of the rows doesn't matter, it is more of nice to have.

Evaluating List Of Similar Names And Assigning Common To Variable?

Sep 17, 2013

I am working on a customer report template that generates our customers reports and will send them out automatically.

This issue I have now is that the system that generates the raw data for these reports only lists the Customers name in a column with an entry for each line of data, the thing is though that the system has lots of variations of the customers name, even more so if that customers has different departments.

What I need to do is from this list of customer names, I need to automatically figure out what the "common" name is or main name so to speak, and then make a variable using the correct full name, which will be used later on in the code to import correct logos, and direct the reports to the correct people.

Here is a quick example of what data we get raw from the system:

Customer Name:
John Build
Johns Buildings
Johns Ltd Building
Johns Plumbing Department
Glass Doors Ltd A Department of Johns Buildings
Johns Building Corporation
Hole In One Golf Range

This is just an example, we have thousands of clients, so the length, number of words etc can change alot. Ideally I from a list similar to that I would get a full proper result of "Johns Buildings Ltd" for example, this would then be in a variable to be used in code from then on to reference doing certain things with the reports of Johns Buildings Ltd.

You'll notice there is one name "Hole In One Golf Range" that seems to have no relation at all, this is correct, ideally I would also like to build in some error checking into the code, so that rows like that that have nothing to do with the others would get deleted.

So how would you amazing VBA gurus go about working with data like this? I'd prefer a more general answer with explainations that just straight code, as I'm sure I will have to adapt the hell out of it for it to be useful in context.

Generating A List Of The Five Most Common Responses (Text-Based Mode)

Sep 11, 2009

I would like to generate a dynamic list of the top five most common text responses in a range. For simplicity sake, let's assume that the range spans cells A1 to A20, and the list is generated in cells B1 to B5. So, essentially, I am seeking five separate formulas. One to calculate the most common text element, one to calculate the second most common text element, one to calculate the third most common text element and so forth.

I am currently working with the two formulas below but finding it incredibly difficult to merge them into a working format.

Formula for finding second most common number:
=MODE(IF(IF(A1:A20"",A1:A20)MODE(IF(A1:A20"",A1:A20)
),IF(A1:A20"",A1:A20),""))

Formula for finding most common text element:
=INDEX(A1:A20,MODE(IF(ISTEXT(A1:A20
),MATCH(A1:A20,A1:A20,0))))

Count A Table With Words In It

Jun 12, 2006

I am trying to use Excel to do my manpower allocation and planning. So I have
a column of employees and a row of months. I then put in the project name
that each is working on in a given month.

then at the bottom, I just sum the number of people working on a particular
project in a month and do a simple calculation between the number of
available people and the number who are allocated. This works beautifully IF
each person only works on one project in a month. As we know, this is an
unreleastic assumption!

What I would like is for me to put in multiple project names in a cell and
for the 2nd table to be smart - i.e. if I put in Project A & B for John, then
it should count John as 0.5 for each A & B not 1 for each A&B. Similarly if
John is working on 3 projects, then it should count only 0.33 for each
project John is working on.
