# Function To Count Number Of Text Instances

Sep 17, 2008
This might be really simple but i don't get it. I have a column with country names (strings). There would be 5 instances of "USA", 10 of "UK", etc, etc.

I made a column next to it, where i want to count the number occurances ....

I'm using WinXP with Excel 2003 - I have a column of highway sign description data (16k+ rows).

Example:

Curve Arrow Right

Curve Arrow Left

Turn Arrow

Reversing Curve Arrow Right

Winding Road Arrow(plus many more unique entries)

I'm using SUM and COUNTIF to total the number of times "Curve", "Reversing", "Turn" and "Winding" appear in the column.

My formula is:

Code: =SUM(COUNTIF($F11:$F16196,{"*CURVE*","*REVERSING*","*TURN*","*WINDING*"}))

Which works great EXCEPT what I really want is the number of cells with any of those key words, not the total count of those words. The example above should be 5, but since row four contains more that 1 of the key words I'm getting 6.

I need a formula to count the number of times the same thing occurs in a particular column. i.e. tree 1, tree 2, tree 3. I just tried the countif function and it is returning "0". Not sure if that's because the data I am looking for is part number/part text. Does this make a difference? There are also spaces between the number and the text. Also, the range I am asking excel to look in is based on a concatenate formula.

If you can see the example spreadsheet that has been uploaded, I need VBA to try and count how many times the number 1, 2 or 3 occurs in the column A and give that figure in b15, 16 and 17 respectively. I also need it count the number of times a particular product appears in column B and give those figures in b19, 20 and 21.

I have a workbook consisting of two sheets: a Monthly Class Schedule (Divided into five one-week blocks. Each block's vertical is Mon to Fri, the horizontal is 9 class slots. There are 45 class slots pw). Each class has one student and the cells are filled 'Student Number, First Initial, Surname' eg, '666 J Smith'. Students may be scheduled for several class slots per week and some class slots have no students scheduled. When the student attends a 'P'is added at the beginning of the cell eg,'P 666 J Smith'.

The Student Attendance Report has the students listed vertically on the left, arranged by Student Number, and then a column for each week.

At the moment I have to manually count the classes each student has attended for each week and enter the attendance figures in the appropriate week column. It's a PitA so I want to automate the process by using the S#s in the Attendance Sheet to search the week blocks in the Schedule Sheet for 'P S#' and auto-fill the week columns in the Attendance Sheet.

I need a formula which I am using to count instance of sickness. I include a sample copy of my data which I hope will make my request clearer! I'm currently using the below formula to count the number of continuous instances of any code starting with "SICK" =(SUMPRODUCT((LEFT(C$10:C$37,4)="SICK")*(LEFT(C$10:C$37,4)<>(LEFT(C$10:C$37,4)))))

I would also like this formula to count any code starting with LTS as well (Long Term Sick). Due to the nature of sickness there may be continuous periods where both SICK and LTS codes are used, at the moment I can not come up with a formula to return the value I need. These columns may contain other codes but for simplicities sake I have only shown the relavent ones.

I have a list of ID# (Col A) and dates (Col B). The ID # of reference is Col (F) and today's date (Col G). I need to count how many future dates there are in the list (Col B) that are unique and in the future from today's date.

I'm still fairly new to all these formulas and functions which is why I'm not attempting this in VBA.

I've attached an example work book and I would like the result in H2.

Basically, I have a table with rows as person, and variables as features. If a person meets a feature, the that cell writes 'X', now, I hope to create a master variable that capture all the features, basically counting how many features a person has met. For example, Joe has three features; "have balls," "cool guy", "good with ladies". In the cell in question would be "X" "" "X". And if I count, then it should be 2.

In a cell i need this info when

column a = month

column o = staff member

column m = discount given

if no discount is given column m will show 100%

i need the total of all sales made with a discount i.e not 100% and not blank, in a certain month, by a certain member of staff

step 2: i need the average of all these for each member of staff shown in a different cell

i already have the total sales counted per staff member so this will show me who is doing deals and who is doing the biggest deals.

40,000 rows,

Column A is a Port Code . . . always 4 digits

Column B is a 2 digit code representing a mode of of transportation.

I did it the "brute force" way of concatenating the two columns into column C, then sorting and subtotalling column C . . . .

What I'm trying to do is input a formula in col G which will look for instances of the city named in col F in both cols A and C. This should then return the total of these, from cols B and D that have the letter "F", into col H. Therefore, in the attached example, cell G2 would return "1", G3 would be "0" etc.

Should I be using VLOOKUP or COUNTIF, or maybe a combination of these or something totally different?CityCodeCount.xls

I am trying to find a formula that will count the number of unique entries there. I have tried the solutions posted on various websites to no avail (most recently:

Code:

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(MATCH(A1:A10,A1:A10,0),MATCH(A1:A10,A1:A10,0))>0,1))

).

The answer should be 4,457.

Is it possible to use VBA to calculate the number of numerical occurance within a column of data, and then categorise the results (onto another sheet) based on a grouping variable found in another column of data? I've been trying to create a macro to do such a thing, but I'm not even close ....

We have one excel file for monitoring of action items generated by the management after the study. As since there were around 3000+ rows has been generated since in the beginning of 1990's till to-date. So I was thinking of instead of getting the result through filter manually, I want to create a formula that will count of how many has been closed this year and this month out of the total numbers of action items.

Is it possible to use the COUNTIF function formula to count the number of items in column A, and date of column B, and closed in column C.

In below, we can see that there were 4 items under Revalidation has been closed this month and the total number of closed this year is 6.

I have some data in a column, starting at row 6 that I'd like to find the number of unique text values for. For this I have been using this formula

Code:

{=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(LEN(A6:A10000)>0,MATCH(A6:A10000,A6:A10000,0),""), IF(LEN(A6:A10000)>0,MATCH(A6:A10000,A6:A10000,0),""))>0,1))}

The data is dynamic so I picked an arbitrarily large number (10000) and the above formula successfully ignores blank fields.

However, I'd like to now find the count of unique text values that end in X. For example, let's say the data are as follows

Dog_Cat

Mouse_Dog

Mouse_Cat

Mouse_Cat

Mouse_Cat

Mouse_Mouse

Elephant_Elephant

How would I go about (in one function) finding the unique values that end in "_Cat", in this case 2 ("Mouse_Cat" and "Dog_Cat")?

I would like to count the number of instances of different schedules shows in one department. For example for dept. 1, I would like to know how many different schedules are in that dept. I have 48 schedules and 60 departments (numbered 1-60). I would like to know how many "different schedules" dept 1 has and so on. I don't think the frequency function will work. Is there a way I can use sumproduct to get the result I'm looking for? The information is on a separate worksheet in colums (Col. A holds the dept and Col. B holds the relative schedule).

I found the following formula online while searching for how to count unique instances of a number in a list. The list may have blank cells or repeated numbers but this formula works. =SUMPRODUCT((A1:100<>"")/COUNTIF(A1:A100,A1:A100&""))

So my question is...can someone verbally explain just exactly what is going on? i.e. I don't understand the <>"" in the sumproduct argument or the &"" in the second argument of the countif.

I like to think that I am pretty good on Excel 2003, can't stand 2007 but hey thats for another thread.

I can do most forumulas and write some pretty elaborate macros, but one thing I am trying to do has completely stumped me.

Each month I compile a Pivit table that shows by day if a product was in stock or out of stock, this is represented by a blank cell (in stock), "1" Out of stock.

All this is fine, but I want to be able to show the number of instances that a product was out of stock in any given month...
