Counting The Number Of Days

This list goes on with every workday of the month repeat several times, with no day have any set number of entries. Also each new month is just tacked on to the previous list. All of this is in column A but there are many other columns of data with these dates. I just didn't see the need to replicate that here.

What I need is to be able to count the number of unique days per each month but I do not want to have to specify a range for the month of January, then another range for February, etc. I just want to be able to list the column A4:A1200 and have the formula select just the unique days for January. Then in another cell modify the formula for unique days in February and so on.

Counting Dates/Days
a count formula.

Right, Column A on my sheet is the date that the work was completed. First thing is I need to be able to count how much work was completed per month. (I dont know why we have it all in one big sheet rather than monthly sheets but thats too logical!)

Secondly, column I is the number of days that piece of work took to complete. I need to be able to have a formula that looks at the month the work was completed, then total up the number of days that the work took.

(Example, if I have three bit of work completed in October, 1 took a total of 20 days, 1 took 15 and 1 took 10 it would = 45 days)

I know that this should be possible as I've had Excel doing more complex formulas than this.

Counting Days And Hours
I have a questions about counting days and hours.

Imagine that i have an item entering my warehouse on 22/05/2008 at 21h35 and leaving on the 25/05/2008 at 5h42.

A1= 22/05/2008 and B1= 21h35
A2= 25/05/2008 and B2= 5h42

The goal is to count the full 24 hours day and the remaining hours.

For the example given i can say that on day 22 the item only says 2 hours and 25 minutes, on day 23 it stays 24 hours and on day 24 another 24 hours, on day 25 the item leaves at 5h42, so it only stays those 5h42.

So we have 2 full 24 hour days and 2h25 plus the 5h42, the the item were stored 2 days and 8 hours and 7 minutes.

The problem is when the item arrives at (example) 22/05/2008 2h00 and leaves at 25/05/2008 23h00 on another day. Lets say that on the first day the item is 22 hours stored, plus the 2 full 24 hour day and another 23 hours.
So it is 2 days plus the 45 hours, that is 2 days plus 1 day and the remaining 21 hours.

how to add to this 2 full days the 1 day and 21 hours

Counting Days Within Date Ranges
I run a small holiday cottage and I want to use excel to tell me which days of the year I get most enquiries for.

Every time I get an enquiry for a certain period in the cottage, I enter the dates into excel.

I have two columns - Start of holiday and End of holiday.

What I would like to do, is give each day of the year one point if someone enquires for it.

e.g. If someone asked for 3rd january to 5 january, I would give 1 point to the 3rd and 1 point to the 4th of january (but not the 5th as that is the day they would leave!)

At the moment I find it easier to count with pen and paper than use excel for this problem.

Counting Occurences Of Months And Days Etc In A List
I have been struggling for almost 2 days with this problem.

I have a list of data, one column of which is the date displayed in dd/mmm/yy format.
This date will always be entered by users and is variable.

I can't find a way of counting the number of occurences of each month and each day that the date represents.

So, I want to know how many occurences of March, June, May, Septemeber etc are on this list and Mondays, Tuesdays, etc.

I have tried several posssible routes, DCOUNT DCOUNTA COUNT COUNTIF SUM. I've also tried separating the date out into days & months using the MONTH & DAY functions but this didn't work either.

It also apepars (shock horror) that Excel has incorrect date & day values because entering todays date in one cell (11/05/2006) and then using the DAY function to find the day of the week for this date produces WED when it should be THU. (My system date is set as 1 Jan 1900).

I feel that Excel can't separate the months & days away from the date, since the date is stored as a numerical value and not as we humans use dates.
The dates will always be manually entered by users, probably as dd-mm and Excel will automatically add in the year.

How can I count the occurences of each month and days of the week?

Counting Days In Date/Time Format
I am trying to count the number of orders written per day. I used the following formula on another sheet and it worked fine, however on this one, A8 is a date only, and F2:F2000 is a date and a time.

I tried reformating the cell for date only, and it displays only the date, however, the time information is still stored, and I can't get it to do the count. Is there a way to count the date regardless of the time?

=COUNTIF('ACT Legacy'!$F$2:$F$2000,Stats!A8)

Counting Formulas And Creating A Matrix
I have the following used formula to count how many occurances there are of a particular piece of text in a column:


e.g. {=SUM(IF(K6:K16="H",1,0))}

I have repeated this formula for an adjacent column

e.g. {=SUM(IF(L6:L16="M",1,0))}

I need to find a way of counting number of occurances in these two columns (K and L) when text "H" and "M" are present in the same row.

To further complicate matters (well for me anyway) the text "H" and "M" care chosen from a list of options in the K and L columns.

What i ultimatly want to do is create a matrix to compare how many times all possble occurances of the various options listed in both columns are present in the same row in the spreadsheet.

Rolling 7 Days, Extract The 3 Previous Days
I have a spreadsheet in 2007. Days across the top for an entire year. So 365 columns. I need a macro to extract the 3 previous days , today's column, and the 3 next days and load to a different worksheet.

HTML worksheet A:
1/1/09, 1/2/09..... 10/17/09, 10/18/09, 10/19/09, 10/20/09, 10/21/09 .... 12/31/09
10 11 ... 14 15 17 12 22 ... 28
a g ... g c d d a ... a

the macro would create a worksheet B(if run on 10/19/09):
10/17/09, 10/18/09, 10/19/09, 10/20/09, 10/21/09
14 15 17 12 22

Using Two IF Formulas (3 Or More To Count If Other IF Formulas Are Actually Returning A Value)
I have a spreadhseet with various functions on it and what I am trying to do is this.

Cell E4 returns a >35 or <35 true or false value
Cell G4 is either blank or has "Yes" text type into it.

What I am trying to do is get cell F4 to return certain arguments.

E4 = >35 and G4 is blank I want it to state "Email Hiring Manager"
E4 = ,35 and G4 is blank I want it to state "Wait"

I have a basic IF formula that returns this
=IF(E4>35,"Email Hiring Manager","Wait")

Then if cell G4 is populated with a Yes the formula needs to overwirte the origonal if with the return arguments of
=IF(G4="Yes","Email Agency","Email Hiring Manager")

If yes then what would be Email Hiring Manager (yes will only be input if E4 is greater than 35) will be overwritten with "Email Agency"

Can this be done with two If formulas or does there need to be 3 or more to count if other IF formulas are actually returning a value?

Comparing Days In VBA
Using VBA, I would like to compare the date found in Cell(datRow, colIndex) of the Recap workBOOK to the date found in Cell(varRow, 3) of the Deduction workBOOK.

I loop through several Recap workbooks, one for each month. The problem I am encountering is this: If the date(s) found in the Recap workbook are before the date(one date) found in the Deduction workbook, the procedure will add the value of data below it to a running variable total.

However, what I am Needing, is for the value only to be added to the total IF the DAY of the date found in the Recap workbook (not the entire date) falls before the DAY of the date found in the Deduction workbook.

I know this is lengthy, but I have researched this for hours and am finding little to help me. Is there a function used in VBA to compare only the day of a date? And can I use a conditional IF statement such that execution happens when Cells(varRow, 3).Value > Cells(datRow, colIndex).Value even though the cells reside in different workbooks (both are open during processing)?

Calculating Days ..
What I would like to do is insert a formula into column E that would calculate the number of days from when the count is at 50 to when the next count is i.e. for part 6689841 the time between when the count was 50 and when it was at 20, so the difference between 21/01/2008 and 08/08/2008 in the above example. It does not matter what the count number is (it could be any number except 50), I'm only concerned with every time the count is at 50 how long it is until the next count and to show the result in days.

Number Of Days Between 2 Dates
I am trying to set up a function to derive a number of days between 2 dates.

Within the table I have an on hire date, and off hire date, and an optional suspend hire date range in 2 other columns - ie. there are 4 columns with dates in.

On hire is in column B; offhire in C; suspend hire in G and recommence hire in H. The optional suspend hire date range will always fall within the main hire date range.

Column I calculates the number of days for the suspend hire period.

My key cut off date is in cell C4.

There are 3 different scenarios I need the function to cover.

1 - if the cut-off date (in C4) is later than recommence hire, calculate the number of days from hire start to cut-off date, less suspend hire period days.

2 - if the cut-off date (in C4) falls within the suspend hire period, calculate the number of days from the hire start to the begining of the suspend hire period.

3 - if the cut-off date (in C4) falls before the suspend hire period, calculate the number of days from the hire start to the cut-off date.

This is the fuction I have written:-

Calculate Sick Days
Ive tried formulas for this but nothing is working, and was wondering if there was some vba that would do the job

Please find attached a sample sheet of where Im up to.

Im trying to calculate when someone goes sick to see whether they are entitled to company sick pay (CSP) Statutory sick pay (SSP) and most people will have waiting days (W D) before qualifying for CSP.

A6:A735 have set dates for two years
D6:D735 have the sick days an employee has taken
B6:B735 Matches the sick date to the date in column A

G2 has how many days entitlement for CSP
H2 has how many waiting days (W D) before CSP can start

In Column C i need CSP, SSP, or W D next to the number 1

And if someone only has 1 day sick they would not qualify for any of the above and I just need S in column C.

Should give me the answer of "x" amount of days.
