# Generating A Combinations List

Feb 5, 2007
I have ten numbers (i.e. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10) and I'm trying to figure out how to make Excel generate a list of all the combinations possible for these 10 numbers. I'm trying to avoid using a VBA script. Is it possible to accomplish this task only using a function formula? This way I will have the ability to tweak the formula and test different qauntities of numbers (i.e. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 or 44,56,77,33). Is getting a list of all possible combinations to output on a single column with commas between numbers possible with a formula?

I coordinate access requests for several contracts, and I have to list the approved accesses in a list where each line represents one person and one contract. For each access request, there will be an arbitrary number of persons obtaining access to an arbitrary number of contracts.

The input would then be as follows: Joe A and Jill B request access to contracts 1001, 1002 and 1003 ->

Joe A 1001

Joe A 1002

Joe A 1003

Jill B 1001

Jill B 1002

Jill B 1003

To automate this task, I have made a simple macro for generating a combination list of all persons having obtained access to a selection of contracts.

My macro worked well when I only wanted to list unique and independent list items, but now I have been asked to include each person's email address. How I can change my code so that only one email address is copied into my list for each person?

Code:

Sub AccessList()

Sheets("requests").Select

Dim rng As Range, c As Range

Dim rng1 As Range, c1 As Range

Dim rng2 As Range, c2 As Range

[Code]....

For Ex:- If there are three Items.. A B C and forming a group of 2

then the the total no of combinations would be permut(3,1) = 6...

I need this to be shown as follows depending on the no of itmes and no of group no=2 in this case...

Permuations & Combinations are as follows:

AB

AC

BC

CA

CB

BA

use a vlookup with an IF function to display those unmatched record found in sheet1.

In sheet2, there are some new and old firms. Thus I need to separate them to process.

I have a spreadsheet of 1000+ companies and I want to take a random sampling of 100 of them. I would assume this could be accomplished by auto-filling a numerical value to each line of data (which I did), then scrambling only the column with the numbers (which I can't figure out), and then selecting the entire text and resorting it to put the numbers back in order and then just work with the first 100 rows (which I can do, if I knew how to make the numbers random).

Let me explain, I am trying to auto generate a list. So I have one cell A1 with value "ABC"In another sheet,

I have a list of products in cells A:1 to A:100 and "ABC" is one of them, but is there 4 times. I have value in B:1 to B: 100

What I need is to create a list of all the values in Colum B that are related to "ABC"

Colum A Colum B

ABC 10

ABC 20

ABC Test

ABC TBD

Based on "ABC", I need a list to generate a list:

10

20

Test

TBD

I try Arrays and VLookup and Match and index but they are all single data return.

I have a workbook where Sheet 1 Col A is a list of dates. Sheet 2 Col A is a relatively short list of constantly changing names. I need to put this list of names in a repeating fashion in Sheet 1 Col B. Ideally I would like for Sheet 1 to regenerate Col B each time the roster list is changed.

From another thread I got this formula placed on B5:

=NETWORKDAYS(EOMONTH(B4,-1)+1,EOMONTH(B4,0),Holidays)

his generates the number of working days for that month (regardless of the date on B4) that exclude Holidays listed under the range "Holidays".

I also got this code (Credits to XXXX)

So we had a month long, company paid (woohoo!) "weight watchers" challenge. On 1 worksheet ("Stats"), I have the Name of every Employee (A Column), then their Start Weight (B Column), End Weight (C Column), Department (D Column) and finally Location (E Column).

I know how sensative some people can be about their weight, so I locked the page and created another worksheet named "UI", which will display the "Average End Weight" for each department. So Human Resources would be the department in cell A2 on the UI sheet, with City 1 being the Column Header in cell B1. There are 8 cities (offices) and 23 departments.

So, for cell B2, I want to scan through the "Stats" worksheet and locate all of the cells in the department and location columns that read "Human Resources" and "City 1" respectively. Then grab the "End Weight" for every row that meets these 2 criteria, add them up, and divide by the number of "End Weights" that were grabbed.

My solution would be to make a separate column for each department (and then each city, so essentially 8 columns to represent all the cities for each department), use a nested (maybe 4) IF statements to then list only the end weight if that particular row meets the criteria, then at the bottom of each separate column, add all the shown numbers up and divide, then draw the information from THAT number into the "Average" cell on the UI worksheet. But it isn't very dynamic and if i want to use this sheet next year, there will be more employee info to be added and it would be a mess..further more, it would be...what...23 Departments x 8 Cities x 155 employees = ~28,500 added cells.

I would like to generate a dynamic list of the top five most common text responses in a range. For simplicity sake, let's assume that the range spans cells A1 to A20, and the list is generated in cells B1 to B5. So, essentially, I am seeking five separate formulas. One to calculate the most common text element, one to calculate the second most common text element, one to calculate the third most common text element and so forth.

I am currently working with the two formulas below but finding it incredibly difficult to merge them into a working format.

Formula for finding second most common number:

=MODE(IF(IF(A1:A20"",A1:A20)MODE(IF(A1:A20"",A1:A20)

),IF(A1:A20"",A1:A20),""))

Formula for finding most common text element:

=INDEX(A1:A20,MODE(IF(ISTEXT(A1:A20

),MATCH(A1:A20,A1:A20,0))))

I am trying to write VBA code that will list all possible combinations of data contained in a worksheet based on a few conditions. I have a list that varies in length. In the first column is a list of numbers denoting a particular course number. In the second column is a list of numbers denoting the specific class number for the course. As an example, I have a 6 courses. The first course has 1 class, the second course has 3 classes, the third has 11, the fourth has 3, the fifth has 7, and the sixth has 6. Thus, my columns look like this:

A B

1 1

2 1

2 2

2 3

3 1

3 2

3 3

3 4

3 5

I need to list out all possible combinations of classes given that I must have all six courses. EXAMPLE (Course, Class):.......................

I need to be able to create a list of all combinations (where position doesn't matter, therefore its not a permutation) of a list of numbers with repetition enabled. I need to provide anywhere up to at least 10-15 numbers if possible and they are integers normally between 1 and 72. Example: (for numbers 1, 2, 3)

VB:

1

2

3

Am looking for an easy way to produce a list of combinations (maximum 6 numbers) from a range of numbers listed in 6 different columns:

Example

Column A contains : 1,2,3

Column B contains : 7,8,11,15

Column C contains : 12,16,18,19

Column D contains : 17,30,31

Column E contains : 30,31,32,33,34

Column F contains : 37,39,40

The rules are:

In each combination of 6 numbers, numbers should always be taken from ALL 6 columns. In each combination, numbers cannot repeat.

show me a formula to arrive the results.

I have 15 different words that I want to order in as many ways as possible, but only 3 at a time.

So let's say the words are:

cat

dog

elf

clown

monkey

rock

bananas

(etc)

then I want a list that has all of these possible combinations:

cat dog elf

cat dog clown

cat dog monkey

cat dog rock

cat dog bananas

cat elf clown

cat elf monkey

(etc)

until all are listed. I understand there is a huge number, I don't mind having a couple of thousand as long as they are all genuinely unique.

I CAN have elf dog cat, elf cat dog, dog elf cat later on ... it's just the order that needs to be unique not the words in the phrase.

I have 7 cells containing strings but not numbers on a row.

Now I want to list out all the combinations of drawing out 3 cells out of these 7 cells while the remaining cells that haven't been drawn out could also be listed out one column next to the drawn cells.

For example, I got 7 cells like this.

A B C D E F G (each letter in ONE cell)

And I want to list out all the combinations like this:

ABC DEFG

ABD CEFG

ABE CDFG

ABF CDEG

etc.

I have a list in excel with ten values, but I need to get all combinations possible, picking 4 of 10 each combination. This must be as a combination and no permutation or variations either, I mean, values can't be repeated in a single combination.

I'm struggling to do this in a Macro but I don't get it.

I have a table of projects with 1) duration in year, 2) time window (number of years of our planning cycle), and 3) start year of the project. I want to generate a list of project parts of all projects where they may take place. This will serve as an input to an optimization program.

So a project of 2-year duration should have 2 parts over any year within the time window. I am including the "impossible" ones for my developer to tag them as "0" when we run it through his code.

What I am looking for is to select between 7 and 15 numbers in total, I want all the possible 6 digit combinations for this.

EG: if I choose 2,9,11,13,15,17&26, it would look something like this

2,9,11,13,15,17

2,9,11,13,15,26

9,11,13,15,17,26

And so on.

If I chose more numbers (10) 1,2,3,4,3,6,7,8,9,10 it would start something like this

1,2,3,4,5,6

1,2,3,4,5,7

1,2,3,4,5,8

1,2,3,4,5,9

1,2,3,4,5,10

And so on.

Please remenber I would like to be able to secelt between 7 and 15 number and be given all the possible combinations.

I would like it to be in one sheet but if that can not be done on as many as it takes.

It would be good if I could just type the required number into A1,B1,C1 and so on and they just gave the combinations required.

I'm knocking up a spreadsheet that deals with expense claims for a small company. Under the Reason column you pick an expense type from a drop down list. What I'd like to be able to do is to set up a graph or table that can identify how much is spent on the different things. As there is a drop down menu system I'd like the worksheet to be able to differentiate the expense types and generate a total balance for each. Enclosed is an example of the spreadsheet.

I would like to know whether it is possible to use some VBA/Macro code to complete the following task: when the macro starts to run, it first create a data table, do all the calculations necessary and then paste all the end values on the data table itself and remove the data table it created. the reason why i asked that was because sometimes it takes forever for one of the excel-based programs that i am working on right now due to the fact that it takes a long time to compute the data table. i understand u can always set the calculations tab in excel to be automatic except for tables, but somehow this setting does not stay with the file and hence when i give the spreadsheet to the client, i will have to show them how to set the option, which is a hassle, also, i just want to give them the final values of the calculations and not let them see how those things are done.
