I am looking to find the top 5 most common/repeated numbers within this range. I have found a formula to work out the largest number within the range:

=MAX(IFERROR(0+TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(";"&B3,";",REPT(" ",LEN(B3))),(ROW(A\$1:A\$200)*LEN(B3))-1,LEN(B3))),0)) (REF http://www.excelforum.com/excel-gene...e-numbers.html)

How to modify it to work with e.g. the mode function.

I know I could separate all the numbers out using 'text to columns' but I will need to work this out regularly on large quantities of data ...

Find Most Common Occurring String Based On Lookup Value?

Dec 4, 2013

Find the most common occurring string in my spreadsheet based on a lookup value. For example, if my table is as follows:

Capture.PNG

- I want to calculate the most common value chosen by user 234 (A in this case), user 524 (B in this case)... and so on.
- 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?

How To Find The Most Common Numbers

Apr 9, 2009

I have 300 number groups and each group has 22 different numbers (from 1 to 80).

Can I find the most common 5 or more numbers in these groups by excel, macro or any program?

for example, let us suppose that 4-15-23-36-45 are the most common numbers and these numbers are in 8 groups from 300.

Find Common Numbers Between 2 Columns

Aug 26, 2008

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.

Finding Common (repeated) Numbers In Columns Of Numbers

Mar 21, 2008

I work for a charity and I have to cancel the donations of people whose credit card donations have been declined in three consecutive months.

If in Column A I have a list of donor IDs whose credit cards were declined in Jan 2008, in Column B I have a list of donor IDs whose credit cards were declined in Feb 2008 and in Column C I have a list of donor IDs whose credit cards were declined in Mar 2008, is there a way of showing in a fourth column which donor IDs were common (repeated) in Columns A, B and C? I would have a title for each column in A1, B1 and C1, and also the column where the repeated donor IDs would be displayed.

Pull Out The Top Five Most Common Numbers In A Block Of Numbers

Apr 7, 2009

I have a large block of numbers in a spreadsheet and I am wondering how I can look at the whole block and pull out the top five most common numbers. So perhaps the number 4 is repeated the most times, it would be number 1, number 18 might be repeated the second most number of times so it would be in the number 2 slot etc etc.

Conditional Formatting - Numerical String Ending With Alphabetical Value?

Mar 20, 2013

I am working with a somewhat lengthy worksheet with over 60,000 records. oOne of the columns within the worksheet is the "Account Number" column, which typically consists of 14 numerical characters, but can sometimes have additional or fewer characters. I need to set up a conditional format to pick up any account number that ends in an alphabetical value, (e.g. a through z). The account number is located in column G.

Find Method Returns A String Instead Of A Range

For some reason, it seems that this following line returns the value its supposed to be searching for instead of the range where it finds the value.

FIND Value In String Perform Lookup From Range

Oct 6, 2009

I have account information with 4-digit customer location identifiers beginning at character 9 and ending at character 12:

3600820040010500050006080000360082004004050005000503000036008200400105000500068900003600820040050500050006880000360082004001050005000402000036008200400105000500052320003600820040030500050005271000

No matter what changes in this string, these four digits (9, 10, 11 & 12) will always be in the same position.

What I would like to do is (I think) use the FIND funtion and then perform a VLOOKUP against an already defined table/range which identifies the actual location in the destination cell. Will FIND be the easiest for me to do this our should I use something else?

The what to interpret characters 9-12 (using 3600820040030500050005271000 as an example):

3600820040030500050005271000

4003 is the location information which consistantly breaks down:

4 = Region Name
003 = Office / City (001 thru 024)

There are 7 possible regions with 24 possible Offices/Cities. I want to believe I can make this lookup happen using VLOOKUP tables that break them down - but I just don't have the brainpower to identify those 4 digits and then break them out for a look up.

Formatting Rows With Common ID Numbers?

Oct 23, 2013

I have almost 300-400 records of such data which needs formatting. There are n number of IDs in the first column & corresponding data in columns 2 & 3.

For those rows which have identical ID numbers, I need to fill those rows with some unique shade of color. If you look at the next sheet, I have manually colored the rows & that is my desired outcome. The shade of color does not matter. It just needs to be unique for each ID.

Check Multiple Locations For Common Numbers

Oct 22, 2008

I am currently trying to automate some excells workbooks that my company uses. The one i'm working on is a listing of all the change orders we have. Unfortunatly there are roughly a 1000 rows, each containing the information for the change- change #, Date opened, part numbers, change description, status, date closed.

Order 0001 - 10/22/08 - 0156, 7251, 9901 - delete bag - closed - [blank] -
Order 0002 - 10/22/08 - 0018, 0612, 0875 - add notes - open - [blank] -

What I want to do is type a part number in, it checks to see if there are any rows that already have that number and have an open status (as apposed to closed) and then tells me where the conflict is. so in the above example if I typed in 0612 it would tell me that number is already in use. I am using excel 2003 if that makes any difference.

Find Common Values In Two Lists

May 10, 2007

I have two lists, one is 15,000 records, the other 100 records. I want to find the common records between the two.
I am using this formula currently, but is returning an incorrect result--
=INDEX(\$B\$2:\$B\$11157,SMALL(IF(COUNTIF(\$M\$2:\$M\$100,\$B\$2:\$B\$11157)>0,ROW(\$B\$2:\$B\$11157),1000),ROW()-ROW(\$P\$2)+1)-ROW(\$P\$2)+1)

this is the record number in M2

it is returning
BI1METBRSM
as the common record. This formula is from Joseph Rubin's book F1 Excel Formulas and Functions

What i am trying to do is to to determine the common material that is
used among different model do product in a product family. I have the
column C the various part number for the product family. Each product
model is made up of different combination of the parts.

In I3:U3 i have the model number for each product. Under each are the
combination of various part that make up each model. What i need to do
is in column G conditional formatiing that if all the different model
use a particular part (part number). The respective cell in column in
the row will be color. This will help me to determine what are the
parts that are common to all the product.

Column C Column G Column I .........................Column U

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?

Formula To Extract Numbers From Alpha Numerical Entry

Jan 8, 2014

I have a sheet with thousands of rows of ID's which are made up of a series of letters, numbers, underscores and or spaces. Within the sheet there are numerous duplicates so I need to able extract the numerical element, which is the key data to be able to identify the duplicates.

The numbers I need to extract are mainly 6 and 7 digits long however don't always sit in the same place within the ID. I don't need the 3 digit number sequences, just the 6 & 7 number sequences

e.g

AB_123_456789_Jones
CD_131_7654321_Smith
AB_123_Jones_456789

I've found a formula that strips out all the numbers, however it also included the 3 digit numbers which I don't want. I've also used Text To Columns to break up the ID across a number of columns however that leaves me with 2 and sometimes 3 columns where a 6 digit ID appears

Is there a simple way to extract the number if it's a certain length? i.e. 6 or 7 digits long

Find Top 10 Most Common Words In Column Of Text Strings?
