Finding Unique Entries Among Two Columns Of Alphanumeric Data

Jun 16, 2006

Columns A & B contain several thousand Project Numbers (e.g., P1052, PA844, etc.). Many of the Project Numbers in column B are the same as in column A, but column B also has additional (i.e., newer) Project Numbers scattered throughout. Ideally, I would like to use a built-in function (versus a custom function if possible) that compares all the Project Numbers in both columns and then separately lists those that are unique to column B.

Counting Unique Values, 2 Columns, Alphanumeric

Feb 16, 2005

I have two columns of data: 1 column can be possibly anything, either numeric, alphanumeric, or alpha only (VINS or vehicle numbers). The adjacent column are four different types of vehicles. I've tried concatentating the two to try and count the unique combinations (a truck maybe used more than once during the day), which I can get unique values, but not unique values for each type. Also, the range sizes are variable, but no more that 65 rows.

An example:

5CZ975 Van
25RW04 Straight
5CZ975 Van
ZJ6026 Van

So, the result I am after is 2 vans, 1 straight truck

I found an array in a another post, but it is not working properly (see cell F7 in the attached):

=sum(if(frequency(if($b$2:$b$18=$f7,$a$2:$a$18),$a$2:$a$18)<>"",1,0))
**ctrl+shift+enter**

VLookup / Finding Reverse Entries In Two Columns?

Dec 23, 2013

I have a dataset that looks like below -

Header1 Header2 Data
100 101 20.50
102 19
103 1003.2
101 100 20.50
200 300
102 100 20
200 104 30

Now, what i need to do is for each of the rows in my dataset, I need to find the reverse entries (consider first row where header 1 is 100 and header2 is 101, I need to search the entire dataset to find if I have some data for header1 is 101 and header2 is 100). In this case, I do have such data where header1 is 101 and header2 is 100.

Header1 Header2 Data Reverse Entry Difference
100 101 20.50 20.50 0
102 19 20 -1
103 1003.2 Not found Not found
101 100 20.50 20.50 0
200 300 30 270
102 100 20 19 1
200 101 30 300 -270

let me know if that's possible through excel formulas?

I need a column D with such data and column E for differences. So that, my final output should look like below -

Unique Entries In Each Column Of 620 Columns?

Create List Of Unique Entries Based On Several Columns

In that file, you can see there is a list of somewhat similar data across 5 columns. Some of the entries are duplicates, some are different by only one character. What I want to be able to do is generate a list of all the unique rows of data, taking into account the data from ALL 5 columns. The list can be on another sheet or simply just further down on the same sheet, that doesn't matter too much.

I could do it if it were just one column of data, but struggling trying to do it with several columns.

Count Number Of Rows With Unique Entries In 2 Columns

Oct 9, 2006

I have a spreadsheet which is to record quality checks on work carried out by staff. The spreadsheet has a customer reference number in column B and a Staff reference number in column C.

I can carry out a number of checks on a member of staff on one transaction, so for instance, I could carry 3 checks on one customer number, which would result in the staff ref number being enetered 3 times (there is 1 check per row).

I need a formula to count the number of checks I carry out on each member of staff. My problem is that although 3 checks could be completed on someone, if it is on the same customer NO, it only counts as 1 check. In effect, I need a formula to count the number of staff ref numbers which have a unique customer number eneterd in the adjacent column.

All the cust numbers are unique so would I be able to use a wildcard?

I'm trying to create a single column of stock bin codes for eventual conversion to barcodes. The bin codes run like this:

A2A
A2B
A2C etc. up to A6H, when the 1st character changes to B and the sequence starts again

This needs to continue until the sequence reaches Z6H

How to do this without having to enter each code manually?

Duplicates Finding Entries In Column A Which Match Any Of Column C Entries

May 7, 2014

What I need to do is sort certain entries in longer list (column A, it is in .csv format and needs to be in it so coordinates and names and ID, all sorted with commas) and I have another list (column C) which is shorter list of certain IDs. I googled and tried and got some results for the basic structure but the fuction seems to fail. It doesn't matter how I get that third list done, but there is only one criteria: since the list in column A is really long and those entries need to keep the .csv formatting, the function should copy that info what is in the matching cells.

Let me try to put it simple: .csv cells from column A that have matching ID from column C should be copied to column B (or N).

the function I'm working with right now is

=IF(ISERROR(FIND($C:$C; A1))=TRUE;"0";A1)

Finding Duplicate Cell Entries

Dec 5, 2009

I have a lengthy excel spreadsheet in which I catalog all of my Karaoke song collection. I would like to be able to automatically locate (not delete) cells in which there are duplicate song titles. For my purposes just finding these items quickly so I may deal with them in a manner I've already developed is all I want to do. VBA, Macro or whatever would be appreciated. I'm a relative novice with macros and VBA.

For example row 12 may have the song title "Crazy" in column C and later row 1200 may have the same song title. Manually searching the spreadsheet for dupliates is way too time consuming so I think it can be seen why I'm looking to unlock the power of excel to do this for me.

Finding First Instance Of Multiple Text Entries

Mar 14, 2014

I have a list of names that are mixed and in no order (and need to stay out of order, so not sorting allowed). I need to parse this list to give me the FIRST instance that each name shows up in the list. The one exception is that the first name, cell A1, will be auto-generated from a different workbook, and it is automatically named Name1.

So, in the example spreadsheet, Name1 (cell E2) must equal "Alice". The problem arises on Names2-4. Name2 (cell E3) should be David, Name3 (cell E3)=Jerry, and Name4 (cell E4)=Mark. I tried an array formula:

{=INDEX(A2:A13,MATCH(TRUE,A2:A13<>Name1),0)},

But it is yielding "Jerry" as Name2, when it needs to be Name3. And, of course, this doesn't work on Names3-4 at all. I don't think it matters, but just in case, A2:A13 will be data validation lists.

I"ll bet there's a more elegant way to write this maybe using a Collection or a Dictionary.

Count By Unique Entries

Feb 24, 2007

I am hoping this can be done with formulae. Starting at C7 and continuing down the C column there is a list of names which could potentially run from C7 to C5000. This list of names will contain duplicates. For each name there is a corresponding 'reason' in the F column which will contain the word 'Truancy' or 'Late'.

I need a formula that can count the number of UNIQUE names in the C column which correspond to the word 'Truancy' or 'Late' in the E column.

An example,

[Name].....................[Reason]
C7 ...........................E7
John Potts.................Truancy 2
Matt Jones................Truancy 10
John Potts.................Truancy 4
Matt Jones ...............Late AM
Pete Burns................Late PM
Pete Burns ...............Late Both
Steve Lopez..............Truancy 6

Count of unique names with the word Truancy in the corresponding E column = 3 [John Potts has 2 instances of the word truancy in column E but this is only counted once]

Count of unique name with the Word Late in the corresponding E column = 2 [Pete Burns has 2 instances of the word late in the E column but this is only counted once].

Finding Duplicate Entries In Column Considering Indirect Referencing

I wonder if there is any easy way of findinig (numerical) duplicate entries in a column? Some cells are empty, in case this might cause a problem. I do not wish to delete duplicate rows automatically, just to find them. Why not just sort it? Because indirect referenceing is used where each row corresponds to a separate spreadsheet in the workbook. What I need is to find the duplicate so that I manually can erase one of the spreadsheets for the particular case and adjusting a reference list.

Count Unique Entries With Criteria?

COLUMN A COLUMN B
Date Supplier
01-ago-12 Mr X
01-ago-12 Mr X
01-ago-12 Mr X

I want a formula that allows me to see how different dates Mr X has visited in each month. So in August he has visited 8 times BUT only on 5 different dates.

In the case of Mr Y I want the formula to give the answer 5 (even though he has visited 6 times in total, he has visited on only 5 different dates).

In the case of Mr X in September, the answer to the formula would be 2, since has visited on 2 different dates in September.
