I'm trying to sift through 10000+ rows of results, and I'd like to know if there's a count formula to determine how many times I have matches in one column (name) and mismatches in another column (ID #)

Profile ID |Name | License #

12345 |Debra Nelson |12345678

12345 |Debra Nelson |23456789

I want to count how many times theres a match in the 1st or 2nd column (profile ID, name - those two columns should match) and a mismatch in the 3rd column (License #). I'm not sure if this can be done with a formula, like a COUNTIF, or not.

I have a number of records that have in one cell a string of the form 1,2,3 etc (up to 10) representing conditions that have been met. There are a number of options available for producing reports on all of the other attributes in a record but now we wish to add this element as well.

The reports I can produce using VBA and the INSTR function, however on the summary page where, a total of all records matching available criteria is shown, depending upon drop down items being selected, I need to add this element to the equation as well. The existing conditions are counted using SUMPRODUCT and a combination of IF statements and work fine.

As there is an option to create a report for both AND and OR, e.g. if condition 1 and 2 and 3 apply include in the report, or if condition 1 or 2 or 3 apply include in the report

The conditions are selected using a check box and a drop down list to select the AND/OR condition.

I have been trying various combinations of database functions, countif, find and cannot get them to evaluate. I suspect that it may be beyond my reach to use a formula and I will need to use VBA with a Worksheet_Change macro to achieve what I want, or alternatively redesign the layout to store the conditions differently, however if anyone has any ideas for a formula I would much appreciate hearing from you.

A sample worksheet illustrates how the data is currently shown. The string in the record column is created using VBA and then inserted into the actual record.

I am trying to match words in two separate columns that are not exact matches. any formulas or codes I can write to do this.Below is an example.

Column A

3m Corporation

Apple Inc

Allstate Corp

State Farm

I have Userform1, Textbox1, Textbox2 and CommandButton1. Textbox1 is being manually inputted by users.

I would like that when I click Commandbutton1, that Textbox2 will be populated by whatever value was entered in Textbox1, except that the any string that matches any of the listed pattern below:

009???

017???

088???

078???

003???

663???

will be excluded. "?" here represent any 1 character.

So for example, if the user inputted "AA-90-088100ABC" in Textbox1, when CommandButton1 is clicked, Textbox2 should have the value:

"AA-90-ABC"

I am looking for a way to check for the presence of a member of a list in a field. Not for an exact match, but for the text to be somewhere present. I know I can use the "search" function to find text within text, but I don't see how to find the presence of any member of a range of values (a list) within the text.

I have a cell that contains a string of characters that were combined from two different cells. What would the formula be for excel to ignore the characters that are from one of the cells? In other words, if cell A1 contains ABCD123 and cell A2 contains XYZ (the length of the string in A2 varies in length), the combined string is ABCD123XYZ. In cell B1 I would like excel to ignore the contents of cell A2. This seems simple but I'm not coming up with the right syntax.

View 6 Replies View RelatedI have an excel file, and on some rows, the "B" column contains the text " Total:" (it does have a leading space). I would like to loop through the first 200 rows (maximum length of the file) and delete all the rows that contain " Total:" in column "B". I have tried:

For i = 1 To 200

range("B" & i).activate

If range("B" & i).value = " Total:" Then

rows(activecell.row).select

selection.delete shift:=xlUp

End If

Next i

When I step through that code, it just skips over the IF function as if B1 does not equal " Witness:"

I'm trying to restructure a list of files at work into a format that makes some sort of sense and can be filtered into useful information.

Part of what I need to do, is match up all the drawing numbers that a certain project references. The numbers are formatted like "####A##" ex. 1234A01,1234A02,5678A01, etc. The cells that I need to extract drawing numbers from contain some description or other text (not just the drawing number) so I need to extract the drawing number from that cells value. (Ex. I need to get the drawing number 1234A01 from a cell whose value is "blah blah 1234A01 blah blah blah")

I was thinking I could just search the string for "####A##" but I'm not really sure how....I tried instr, but I think its searching for the literal value of "####A##" rather than treating the # characters as wildcards...

I tried:

Code:

if rngNames.Cells(intx, 2).Value Like ("*####A##*") then

set intStart = instr(1,rngnames.Cells(intx,2).value,"####A##")

'....

end if

but intStart remains 0, so this method is not working...

I have two questions:

a. Check the code below:

Dim news1 As String, news2 As String

news1 = "new"

news2 = "polygon"

Dim countie As Integer

For buddie = 2 To b1.UsedRange.Rows.Count

'If b1. Cells(buddie, 1).Value Like "new*polygon" Then

If b1.Cells(buddie, 1).Value Like news1*news2 Then

countie = countie + 1

n1.Cells(buddie, 10).Value = "test"

End If

Next buddie

I have 2 strings, news1 and news2, i need to use the like function to check the occurance of these two strings in all the cells, and just for testing purpose, im printing 'test' it out in another excel sheet.

How do i make that work? the commented line shows what exactly i want, only that i dont want to hard code the string values.

b. If i have a value in the cell:

/new/blahblah/anycra/polygon

how do i split it so as to assign two variables to have 'new' and 'polygon'.

I have data sets on multiple worksheets within a workbook (over 70). Based on the begining of a string, I need to count all instances with that begining, and if there are fewer than 12 instances, delete the entire row.

Data set example:

In this example, I need to count each instance of rows starting with 1/* - 9/*, and delete rows as mentioned. In other data sets the string might start Gi1/*, and so on. In the following code, if I do not loop, and only test against 1 value type, and ONLY run it once, it works. As soone as I try to loop through all possibilities, or run the macro a second time, it blanks out the entire worksheet, starting at row 3.

Dim c As Long

c = Worksheets(i).Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

With Range("A3:A" & c)

If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Worksheets(i).Columns(1), "1/*") < 12 Then

. AutoFilter field:=1, Criteria1:="1/*"

.Offset(1).Resize(.Rows.Count - 1, 1).EntireRow.Delete

.AutoFilter

I have also tried to concatenate a variable with my CountIf criteria, but that fails miserably.

I'd like a formula to count the number of matches between a column and a named range. The named range has six cells. I'd like to return the number of times any cell in the column matches any cell in the range.

View 5 Replies View RelatedI have data (coming straight out of another system, so whilst is seems messy, its the easiest way to have it in Excel).... where there are a number of rows (one for each employee) - then every column represents a date in the month (so there are about 30 columns)....the cells contain a number of hours worked by that employee for that day.

I have figured out how many hours they worked for each day of the week, but my client now wants to know:

for each employee - how many Mondays did they work?- how many Tuesdays? and so on

I am happy to figure out the day of the week for the first date in the month and then manual set up another column heading above the date that tells me what day it is - but I feel that Excel may actually be able to work out what day of the month it is - although the dates come across from the other system as text - April 26, 2006 etc...

So I would like a summary in my sheet that has column headings

Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sun

and then for each row for each employee - I would like the number of days that employee worked for the month by these Days of the Week.

I have looked at Count if - but I need to be able to select the range of cells to count, and also the range of cells to evaluate for the criteria and I cant figure it out!

I am trying to use a "=COUNT(IF(..." formula to count the number of hourly employees that have start dates older than 3 years. Column A has the start dates and column B has the salary status (S/H). =COUNT(IF(AND(A2:A1000<DATE(2004,1,1),B2:B1000="H"),A2:A1000)) This formula returns 1 no matter what I change the data to.

View 3 Replies View RelatedI want to count the number of times partial text strings occur in a cell adjacent to another cell containing specific text.

A B

FB Milton v Town PHOTO

FB North v Milton PHOTO

FB Milton v South

I'm looking for the number of times "FB" and "Milton" occur in Column A when "PHOTO" also appears in Column B in the same row. From numerous searches I've tried figuring out VLOOKUP, DCOUNTA, etc.

Have numerous values in Col A. Col E extracts a list of unique values from that column.

In Col C, the Col A value has had characters added to it.

Need a formula to count the number of unique values from Col C which contain the same prefix from Col A, and place the result in Col F.

A sample workdook is attached with the desired result shown and highlighted in yellow.

I have several worksheets (Labeled Sheet1,Sheet2,sheet3) What I need to do is to step through each row in sheet3, and do a search in sheet1, it the data was found, then return the row number. I then will need to copy data from sheet1 (rowfound columnA , through rowfound CoulmnBd to sheet3 current working row columnK

View 3 Replies View RelatedIn my spreadsheet, on the first worksheet called "Working". Column A, called "Results", contains carrot ^ delineated string values in each cell (i.e."john^apple^pear^banana^grape^love^heart^pickle"). The majority of string values in every cell in my "Results" column match a "source" column of Pick-List Values, called "Fruits" in the same spreadsheet, however found in a different worksheet called "Lists" (also in Column A). I want to perform 3 functions against my "Results" Column on worksheet "Working":

1.) Report In Column B: Analyze column "Results" by cell and return carrot delineated string values for only those that match my "Fruits" Pick-List

2.) Report In Column C: Analyze column "Results" by cell and return carrot delineated string values for only those do not match my "Fruits" Pick-List

3.) Report In Column D: Identify and return all unique values in "Column C" as a List.

Attached is a simple example of what I'm trying to accomplish called " Sorting.xls"

I am creating a formula that matches a particular date with a particular time. All of the dates that have 14:00 (2:00 PM) next to them should be listed from oldest date to newest date. The workbook where the formula needs to be entered contains data that is constantly shifting and updating so the formula has to be based upon the 14:00 (2:00 PM) and not the number of rows because the 14:00 (2:00 PM) row won't always be in the same place.

See the attached spreadsheet for a better explanation. There are two examples of what I need on one sheet to give an example of how the data can shift. Also, the weekend is not included in the data so the dates skip days during that period.

In the attached sample work book Col E has text that I want to check if it is also in Col G and return Yes or No into Col F

View 4 Replies View Relateda while back one of you gave me an awesome formula that pulls data from sheet 2 based on what was typed in A1 and A2 on sheet 1. Well I ran into a snag, is there a way we can add a 3rd match in the formula. See the attached file. I need to pull data from sheet 2 based on what is typed on sheet 1 in cell A1, A2 and A3.

Exp

Sheet 1, report to be printed

A1 = last name

A2 = first name

A3 = month

Sheet 2, data is held here

Need to pull data in column “M”

I have two columns with dates. Colum A has the date of the deadline of a document while column b has the day it was sent. Column X will display the difference if its a positive integer ( i.e. if the document has been sent after the deadline). Now i have another column Y which displays the month as an integer of when the document was actually received.

Now i need a counter which will count the number of instances a positive integer is registered in column X according to the month in column Y. I have been trying everything but cant figure a simple way to do it. Im doing this so i can be able to see how many documents are sent after the deadline per month.

I've written a Function which will count the number of files in a folder which the modified date equals a fixed date

For example, here, I want the file count which modified date = 01.01.2014

Code:

Function FileCountDate(Path As String, FileType As String) As Long

Dim strTemp As String

Dim lngCount As Long

Application.Volatile

strTemp = Dir(Path & FileType)

Do While strTemp ""

[Code] ......

However I got a #VALUE! error message with this formula:

=FileCountDate("C:Usersjohn.doeDesktopTEST","*")

In the TEST folder there are 4 pdf files so it should return the value of 4.

I'm looking for is to repeat this formula within the cell, so that it can pull the information of not only the first match, but all matches proceeding it. Right now it only pulls the first match it finds, but I would like it to add every time a row matches the criteria of the formula.

=(LOOKUP(2,1/(('Paste SFHS'!$A$2:$A$9=A2)*('Paste SFHS'!$B$2:$B$9="08-Wave/Stu. Goals")),'Paste SFHS'!$C$2:$C$9))

I need a lookup formula that matches first three digits of column, U (153 - LINE PIPE), and match Total 13153 - LINE PIPE, 7th, 8th, and 9th digit in column C. and bring value from either column T,

The formula that I am using is not obviously not correct, I am putting it here to show what I am trying to do.

{=INDEX($T$2:$T$16,MATCH(LEFT(S2,3),MID(C2:C273,FIND(" ",C2),3)),FALSE)}

I have two sheets (sheet 1 and sheet 2). Sheet 2 has a range of data about employees. Column A contains a unique reference number with the rest of the row (Column B - Column X) containing corresponding data about that empoyee.

When I enter that unique reference number in Sheet 1, Column A, and matches the value in Sheet 2, Column A; I would like the rest of the corresponding row data (Column B - Column X) from Sheet 2 to populate 'automatically' (copied) in Sheet 1.

How do I count unique values in Column A only if the values in Column B match?

A B

1 a

2 a

1 a

4 b

5 b

1 b

The formula would return "2" for "a", and "3" for b. Basically, there are names in column B, and I want to know how many unique things are in column A for each person. If there is a better way than a formula (pivot table?) that would be great - like a table that has each of the names (from Column B) and the number of unique items from Column A next to each unique name.

I am trying to count the characters in a string in one cell. For example, I want to count the number of "-"'s in the cell. The version number of part numbers is always the last two characters if the value contains at least one "-". However the parts have a non standard number of characters.

444444 = 0

444-44 = 1

44-44-44 = 2

There can be 0,1 or 2 "-" in the string. I can use the substitute formula to get the root part number, but I was wondering if there is an easier way. The raw data is from our ERP system, so I multiply the value by 1 to get a number if there are no "-" for the vlookup in another formula to work....

I am trying to find a formula that populates a room number based on the number of hours used. I have a chart that is by building but multiple rooms within each.

Where I am having trouble is when there are more than one room with the same number of hours used then sometimes the formula populates the wrong room number.

Attached is my example spreadsheet of my chart. Book1.xlsx

I have shown what I need, what I have tried and a blank space to show where I need it to go.

Using Excel 2013,
