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.

I have an Excel file in which I want to find the numbers which are repeated in several columns (B to L), but there are too many rows to find them looking one by one cell, is there a function which will allow me to find the common values which appear in these 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.

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.

I have 1-d array that gets populated from a number of sheets. This array may contain duplicate entries... for example, let's say this array contains animals.. cows, chickens, horses, pigs... etc. What I would like to do is take this info from this array and create another where it would contain all the different types of animals but without all the repeats.

I have numbers in a table from A1 to X1. From that table I have selected some numbers in example 1: (44,3,11,20,44,3), in which the number 44 and 3 is repeated twice. What I want to do is to conserve one set of repeated numbers and to change one of the sets picking next number of repeated into the following number. Giving a result as follows (45,4,11,20,44,3) and if possible to put it in ascending order.

The same method applies in Example 2: but instead of 2 it conserves 3 repeated numbers and changes the other 3 into next following number.

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.

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.

Assume Cell A2 + A3 as the fraction: 60/100. How can I get the smallest fraction (3/5 in cells B2+B3). I do not want to use the build in cell format for fractions) There are a few samples of want I would like to get a s the result (Red Digits). I will appreciate 2 ways: via VBA Code and via Sheet Build-In Functions.

I need to compare two colums by number decription for example m344 in one column and fsh344-1 in another. All I want to match is 344. In column a I want to indcate the match by placing an X by each match. View my attachment for reference. I don't know if it makes a difference but the columns are centered in my original spreadsheet.

I have been trying to write two formulas in one cell. I have been able to write them both separately but have been unable to join them both together. What I am trying to do if first search name them how many reoccurring numbers appear. I have provided an example below

a b c d

1 Tom 333 2 Sam 22 3 Sam 22 4 John 5 5 Sam 22 6 Sam 1 7 Tom 3 8 Tom 333

Is there a function in excel that can look at an array of values and find the two values that equal a number.

I have a number 159. I have an array of 100 numbers but only two of them added together can equal 159. Rather than sort through every possible combination is there a function in excel that can do that?

I have another post here on this forum, but I'm afaid the formula is getting so complex that nobody is able to fully understand what I want. Instead I want to find a value between two numbers and add it to some IF sentences. It will do what I want, even if it's not that elegant.

I've looked at the SUMIF function but it did not do exactly what I wanted. It finds a number or adds numbers only if they are in range it seems.

What I want is the following: Return sum between 500 and 1000 in one cell.

Create a form where i would enter 2 numbers into 2 seperate boxes, and those numbers would be highlighted/bolded/shown in red from a list of 30 rows of numbers x 20 numbers in each row. these 2 numbers will not be the same all the time, below is just for an example

I have a large list of numbers in two columns. I need to know what numbers are in column A but don't appear in column B. For example if the numbers are 1 2 and 3 in column A but column B only has 1 and 2 I need to know that 3 is missing.

the only thing I can think of is doing =IF(A1=B1,"TRUE","FALSE") however typing this a thousand times would not be practical.

Is there a macro that can check column A against column B and tell me which ones are missing?

Find smallest numbers in the range ignoring zeros. I want it returned as value "1", all others - as value "0". Example: range A1:J1 contains - 5,0,7,3,6,5,8,0,9,3 desirable result in the range A2:J2 - 0,0,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,1

I am trying to find numbers from a string. I have for example words "EUR Fwd 9x12" and "Eur Fwd 11x15" And i want to write a function that reads the first number from a string if there is only one number before "x" or two numbers if there are 2 numbers. So I have tried to build following function:

Function NumbersInString(Word As String) As Integer Dim i As Integer Dim FirstNumberInString As Integer, SecondNumberInString As Integer For i = 1 To Len(Word) If IsNumeric(Mid(Word, i, 1)) Then FirstNumberInString = Mid(Word, i, 1) If IsNumeric(Mid(Word, i + 1, 1)) = False Then Exit Function Else SecondNumberInString = Mid(Word, i + 1, 1) End If End If

Next NumbersInString = FirstNumberInString & SecondNumberInString End Function

I am looking for a way to find a highest (and/or) lowest value in a list of numbers. The list keeps getting longer and after a certain point I will need the 2 highest (or lowest), then the 3 highest (or lowest). I know MIN and MAX will find the high and low, but how do I find the 2nd highest, etc?

I am trying to get an average of a couple numbers, but I have to enter both numbers in one cell.

I have to enter the numbers in a cell as a range (ex. "1000-3000"). I need to convey it as a range in the spreadsheet I am doing, but in a separate cell I need the average of the extremes (1000 & 3000). Is there a formula or anything that would let me get the average of those two numbers(2000) directly from that one cell? If needed, I could make the cell "1000,3000" instead. I just don't want to make two separate cells, one saying 1000 and the other saying 3000.

I do a lot of work in excel to do with accounts and this often needs checking against sage. When the invoices/petty cash sheets are put into sage the total amount is put in, but in my spreadsheets I need to split the reciepts. So I was wondering if there was a formula/VBA code, that if I only knew the total of the invoice would find which cells added up to this total?

In a data report i have a column which contains a mix of text and may contain an 8 digit number which could start in 0.

for example

in column A i could have "Hello how are you 01237232 I am fine"

I wish to extract the number into a seperate column, and would ordinarilly use a mid or left/ right function, however the text infront and behind the number will vary in length, which means i cannot do this.

The number will always be 8 digits, could start in 0 but will not always, and it may not be present in all the cells in this column.

I have an excel file which contains two sheets. In one sheet there are some numbers in a single column. In the other sheet again there are certain numbers span across rows and columns (a number may be duplicated). I need to check whether there are numbers which exist in both the sheets. If such a number is found it may be marked (say with a color) in both the sheets.
