i have a spreadsheet where I need to count up how many times a particular phrase within a text string appears. The text string will be duplicated many times throughout the spreadsheet.

For example :

Miss X was at work on Saturday

Mr XX was at work on Saturday but not Tuesday

Miss Y was at work on Tuesday

So I would like to count up how many times "work on Saturday" appears in my spreadsheet, and then as a seperate query, how many times "work on Tuesday" appears.

I'm just using the "=COUNTIF" function to count how many times a particular website was repeated, but I have no idea if such website is among the top five that appear the most throughout. Finding that manually, given the ridiculous size of the data provided, would take days!

I am trying to find out if Sumproduct or Countif will provide me the answer but in vain. In the example of the 2 columns of data, how do I find out the number of one-time (or unique) combined occurences for data in column A and B? In my example the answer should be 5. I do not how to proceed with my Sumproduct formula which gives error. =SUMPRODUCT(($A$1:$A$17="A122")*$B$1:$B$17)

Attempting to do a countif as follows

Count the number of times that F2:F65536=Q1 where E2:E65536 also = N2.

So for a given row, the cell in col F needs to equal Q1 and the cell in col E needs to equal N2 for it to count.

I have a problem with LAN function. I have following formula to count how many times appears number 2 in a box: LEN(I5)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(I5,"2",""))

in I5 I have 1,2,3,12,34,22,21 . Outcome is 5 which is not what I need. What I wanted to do is to get output of how many times appears number 2, not how many times appears expression 2 (it counts also 22, 21, 12, 2) . The output that I need should be 1 since number 2 appears just once in the box.

I want to count every time a certain cell changes. For example, if C2 is currently set at August 5, 2007 and I change it to August 12, 2007, then add 1 to cell B2.

I have a list of names all in one column, separated by row...

Example...

John Doe

John Doe

Jane Doe

Jane Doe

Jane Doe

James Jones

James Jones

I want to count how many times each name appears. Like this:

John Doe | 2

Jane Doe | 3

James Jones | 2

This is a very large list of names and I prefer not to have to type each single name into a formula because there are hundreds of separate names.

I am trying to simply count the number of times each entered name appears on my list IE if John Smith appears 3 times in one sheet, in a column after his name would simply be the number 3. I tried this doing =COUNTIF(A8,A:A) Where A8 is his name and column A is all names. I keep a return value of 0 every time!!!!! I even tried =COUNTIF(A7,A12) where they were both the same names. And yes,I did do Ctrl + Shift - enter

I have a sheet set up to record free pour tests for my bar team.

Column A has the date.

Alternating columns from B (B..D..F.. etc) hold a drop down with the staff names

Alternating columns from C (C..E..G.. etc) hold a drop down with either pass or fail as the result.

What I need to do is count the number of times a particular staff name appears, but more importantly how many times they pass or fail.

I can easily count the names, but how do I count if they have pass or failed?

I'm trying to filter data into a cell that meets certain criteria...

I would like to count the number of times a sku is found in each region in each month... daily inventory counts are recorded.. the date is recorded as MM/DD/YYYY...

is sumproduct my solution? I'm getting errors, specifically #NAME?

=sumproduct((sheet1!L:L=SKU)*(sheet1!M:M=Region)*(sheet1!C:C>=1/1/2009)+(sheet1!C:C

I've got a set of data that I update once a month and the number of team members per team changes all the time. I'm trying to write a formula that basically says, if the date matches AND the manager name matches, count the number of team members.

In the attached sample if A2 and B4 are found in the data set, count the number of SalesReps they have. So I'm looking at Sarah for February 2013, she has two sales reps that sold something, but Katherine appears twice, so I'm not looking for a result of 3, the correct answer is 2. How do I write the formula?

A2 will look to the data range of A14:A23 and SarahK will look to I14:I23, but I want to count H14:23.

I have two columns with values. Then I have a third column with one letter A or B.

I'm not used to excel, but I've tried my way with COUNTIFS and I'm pretty sure it's the way to go, but I'm lost in the syntax.

I want to count the number of times the values in the first column is larger than the values in the second column, if the letter is A. And then flip the ">" sign and count that and hopefully the first number is higher.

I am sure that most of you will probable know what i am doing wrong here straight away so rather than me waste another 1/2 hr stuffing around. I am trying to find count the number of times two events occur simultaneously.

=SUMPRODUCT(--('5. Financial'!AX4:AX134=A5)*('5. Financial'!BQ4:BQ134>0<0.1))

The first part is fine I think but in the second part I am trying times only when cell is between zero & 10%.

I am using excel 2003. My sheet contains Times in column A and numbers in column B. I want to be able to count how many of those rows fall into time periods. Such as how many are from 8:00-9:00 AM. I do have the time column formatted as Time.

Ex:

A1: 3:40 PM

A2: 8:20 AM

A3: 8:55 AM

A4: 10:23 AM

etc.

B1: 23

B2: 34

B3: 12

B4: 35

etc.

So I want to be able to pull that between 8 and 9 AM there are 2 records.

The second part would be (in another cell) to pull the SUM of the numbers that correspond to the previous question. In the previous example it would be the SUM of all corresponding cells (Column B) that fall within the 8 and 9 AM range. Which would be 46 in this example.

A1:A10 contains text (say colors) and B1:B10 also text (say vegetables). I need a formula to count the number of times a certain combination of numbers and vegetables appear in the same column, so if "red" and "carrot" appeared in A4 and B4 and also in A6 and B6, the result would be 2.

I have used Formula to ID cells containing a formula to flag cells red with conditional formatting in a list that do not have formula.

I need a single cell to change colour if any of the cells in the list do not have a formula. e.g. the subtotal in the top row could go red so the user can scroll down to find individual red cells.

Is there a way to count the red cells without formula in the list - Conditionally formatted cells are hard to count. I don't want to use a vba script to do it as the user probably won't run it and auto run slow calculations down.

Is there an array formula that can return true or false if not(CellHasFormula) is true anywhere in the list?

countif(AH1:AH2976,CellHasFormula) doesn't work.

In the attachment, on the totals sheet I am doing a count of the results on Sheet2. Under "Alcohol as it Applies to Me" on Totals I am trying to count the 5 different categories, but the original question is a pick all that apply so at times there are multiple answers. I can't figure out the formula to count each phrase when there is multiple answers.

I am attempting to create a formula that will count the number of times, lets say letter A, occurs in column E. However, the tricky part that I have been confused on is that I only want to count how many times A occurs between each hour of the day. I need to count number of times "A" occurs between each hour of the day for the entire month.

My Worksheet looks as such: Column A contains the dates for the month of November, Column B contains times that random instances occur, Column C is not important, Column E contains a Letter A-N that pertains to what occurred at a time in column B. SO, Column B and column E coordinate with each other.

Here is an example. Column A - Cell A1 - 11/01/2013 , A2 - 11/02/2013, A3 - 11/03/2013.

Column B - Cell B1 - 12:01 AM , Cell B2 - 14:03 , Cell B3 - 15:23

Column C - Cell E1 - A , Cell E2 - A, Cell E3 - B

So I would like Column F to display that between 12:00 - 12:59 Am there was X number of times the letter A occurred throughout the entire month.

I am using this formula to count the number of times “closed” appears between

particular dates:

=SUMPRODUCT(--($B$1:$B$23=F1)*($C$1:$C$23="Closed")*($A$1:$A$23>=$I$2)*($A$1:$A$23<=$J$2))

I have tried applying the same logic to another formula where I wanted to

Also count the number of times “Not Stated” and “In Progress” are shown.

However when I do I am receiving a ‘0’ number in return. The formula I wrote

was:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(CS_Ticket_Report_Dump!D$1:D$50000=C6)*

(CS_Ticket_Report_Dump!G$1:G$50000="Closed")*

(CS_Ticket_Report_Dump!G$1:G$50000="In Progress")*

(CS_Ticket_Report_Dump!G$1:G$50000="Not Started")*

(CS_Ticket_Report_Dump!A$1:A$50000>=AN$1)*

(CS_Ticket_Report_Dump!A$1:A$50000<=AO$1))

I want to count the number of times a word appears in a range (like M9:S663), but sorting it by the month it appears (eg: january = 2, february = 56, march = 2000, etc.)

I managed to do this but there has to be a better way

=COUNTIFS(RNM.1;"PRUM Transcripcion";FechaComite;">=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";

FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";

FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"

I have a filtered list and want to count the number of times each value appears in the filtered list. I also have other hidden rows that I do not want to include in the count and the filtered rows should not be included in the count either. I have tried countif, pivot tables and subtotal .

My Problem is I have a workbook with multiple sheets with a possibility of a number between 2 and 999 occurring. I am looking for a formula that can display a table on the "total" worksheet for every ID number that has been entered and the number of times the ID number is displayed.
