# IF Function For Last Occurring Unique Cases?

Mar 26, 2014

I have an excel file that lists individuals who came into the clinic on a given day. I am interested in figuring out the amount of unique individuals in a given month/overall. As this is a working datasheet, I would like a formula that would automatically update this information for me. Here is an example of the file that I am working with: unique case example.xlsx

Specifically, I want an IF function that could place an 'x' in column E depending on if the name in column C is a unique instance. But if the name appears several times in the list, I would also like this function to place an 'x' in column E next to the last occurring unique instance. For example, the name 'Hanna D' occurs 3 times in the spreadsheet I have attached, but I want the 'x' to be next to the most recent incident, when she was screened, as opposed to when she was not contacted (missed/doc forgot).

I am not sure if you can even define a unique case in the IF function, let alone the last occurring unique case.

I am not interested in conditional formatting (highlighting duplicate cases and then placing an 'x' next to the most recent highlighted case) because my spreadsheet has 300+ individuals and it is very time consuming to manually move the 'x' when the same individual appears at a later time.

## Calculating Age Of Open Cases

May 27, 2009

I've spent some time looking through previous threads and found some help, but can't quite get what I need.

I am just trying to look at the age of open cases in a report. I want to know in hours (and maybe minutes) not including weekends. I have the created date and time in J2 and "Now" date and time in K2.

I've used the following that I got from another thread: =NETWORKDAYS(J2,K2-1+MOD(K2,1)-MOD(J2,1))

But it seems to be only giving me hours in 24 hour increments. For example a case raised on 22/5/09 gives a time of 72.00 this morning.

## Matching Cases And Data?

Oct 14, 2013

I have data collected at 2 time points. Participants have a unique alphanumeric ID that is the same at both times. I need to merge the data into one sheet where each case has all of the information from time 1 and time 2. There are many more cases at Time 1 (nearly 2000) than at time 2 (around 340).

I have prepared an example of what I need (see below), but have lots (around 300 at each time point) more variables than what has been put in the sheet.

## Examine Random Numbers Of Cases Every Week

Feb 25, 2014

I have to examine a random number of cases every week. I used to have a little app that had a spot to ask me how many random numbers I need. So lets say this week I need to examine 15 cases, I'd enter in 15. Then it would ask me a range for the random numbers. So, lets say there are 250 cases, so I'd type in 250. Then it would spit 15 unique random numbers in sequential order. So, then I could look at me list of 250 case and review those 15 that the random number generator spit out.

Well, we just upgraded our computers to Win 7 and that little app does not work anymore. I've been playing around in Excel, and I've gotten pretty close to getting something thrown together, but I can't get it to work just right...

## Retrieve Next Occurring Value?

Jan 19, 2009

I'm using Excel 2007 and s/s is 325501 rows deep. It consists of a series of approx 30000 ranges between 4 and 30 rows deep.

What I need to do is locate the next appearance of a name and copy its accompanying value to the present occurrence. Doing this manully is not feasible, given the large size of the s/s and I would like to acquire code.

The names are in column B and the values to be retrieved are in the adjoing cell in column C.

The code should only act when there is a number in column S and retrieved values should be placed in column V.

So if XXX appears in B2 and B345 and C345 contains 932, I need 932 to appear in V2.

## Unique Ranks Function

May 10, 2007

I have a list of data where some of the cell values are the same. I want to rank them uniquely but when I use the RANK function the cell values that are the same are given the equivalent rank. Is there any way of assigning the equivalent values a sequential ranking that is unique?

So in this example rather than producing the rank as this:

100 1
99 2
98 3
98 3
98 3
97 4
96 5
95 6

It would produce it as this:

100 1
99 2
98 3
98 4
98 5
97 6
96 7
95 8

## Count Non-zero Items Occurring Between 2 Known Dates

Feb 12, 2014

For each of my staff I need to count if they worked 15 or more days in the 30 days preceding a statutory holiday. (As a follow on problem... If they have worked 15+ shifts then I'll need to calculate the sum of their hours over the 30 days / 30).

I tried the functions below but they didn't work. (the Name1 column records the number of hours worked that day's shift) The actual count in my test case is 5.

=COUNTIFS([stat],"=STAT",[Date],"<[@Date]",[Date],">=[@Date]-30",[Name1],">0") result: "0"
=COUNTIFS([@stat],"=STAT",[Date],"<[@Date]",[Date],">=[@Date]-30",[Name1],">0") result: #VALUE!
=IF([@stat]="STAT",COUNTIFS([Date],"<[@Date]",[Date],">=[@Date]-30",[Name1],">0"),"NO") result: "0"

## Most Frequently Occurring Text - When There Is More Than One Most Frequent

Aug 16, 2012

I am using a formula that finds the most frequently occuring text from a range of cells that have the text 'Ra' 'Ma', 'Mo' or 'Mi' in them (each cell has a drop down list with these text items only). I am currently using this formula to find which of the four text items appears most frequently in the range:

=INDEX(D6:D15,MATCH(MAX(INDEX(COUNTIF(D6:D15,D6:D15),0)),INDEX(COUNTIF(D6:D15,D6:D15),0),0))

This formula works fine in a case where there is more of one text item than any other, but when there are two items with the same number of entries, this formula comes back with the item that fulfils the criteria first - i.e. if 'Ra' appears 5 times and 'Mo' appears 5 times, then either could come back, depending on which appears first in the range.

The text items rate in importance with 'Ra' being the most important, then 'Ma', then 'Mo', then 'Mi' is the least important. What I am trying to do is, in cases where more that one text item appears the same number of times, get the formula to display the one that is the most important. So for example 'Ra' will always appear over 'Mo' if both have 5 entries, but 'Mo' will appear over 'Mi' if 'Mo' and 'Mi' both have the most entries.

## Returning Most Occurring Text In A Range

Jun 6, 2014

Store 1
Store 2
Store 3
Store 4
Top Selling
Second
Third
Fourth

[code]....

I am trying to find two formulas:

Formula 1: Formula 1 will be entered into rows 6:9 (in this example). I need it to return the highest selling product (by store) in order form highest selling to lowest selling. I have a makeshift formula already but it cannot report in order (only the highest selling) and it cannot get past the one return index( limitation. When it finds two high sellers it prioritizes the ranking based on how well that product has sold across the other stores. Product 1 sold 13 times across all stores. Product 2 sold 9 times across all stores. So if product 1 & 2 tie for Store 3 (as shown in the example) Product 1 would be chosen based on its sales across the row.

Formula 2 : Same as formula 1 but with Stores (in column 6-9). It reports the highest selling store and treats ties the same way as formula 1.

## Stop #REF! Occurring When Changing Spreadsheet

Jun 3, 2008

Is it possible to stop the #REF! error appearing in my formulae when I make a change to my spreadsheet? I have some complicated spreadsheets that take a lot of re-building whenever I need to make changes because of the #REF! error. I tried turning off automatic calculation and that seems to work, until you calculate, then the errors appear. I find myself copying formulae into a text file and then re-pasting back into the spreadsheet after making the changes - there's gotta be a better way! (Using Excel 2003).

## Creating Unique ID Using Concatenate Function

Mar 26, 2014

I need to create unique IDs for all of my stock. I would like to use the concatenate function so that the first letter of each products type is taken and then joined onto a unique number. Im not sure how I will do this I was thinking that the formula looks at the largest value and adds 1 so that there are no duplicate numbers added to the first letter of the product type. E.g. the first mother board added will be "M1" the next will be "M2" as the formula has found that M1 exists and has added 1.

## Counting Unique Values With A Function

Feb 16, 2006

I have a column of data with 1000 rows. In this column there are duplicated values. I would like to be able to use a function count how many unique values are in the column. Let's say there were 4 duplicates of 250 values in the column. I would like to be able to write a function to calculate the 250. I am very familiar with Excel and am able to acheive the number through subtotals and/or pivot tables. I know I can find how many instances one specific value appears in the column through sumproduct and/or countif statements,

## Computing The Date Of The Next Occurring Specific Weekday?

Feb 18, 2014

My spreadsheet opens. Cell A1 determines what today is, formatted as "weekday, day month year" (e.g., "Tuesday, 18 February 2014").

I have another cell in which I typically enter the date for the coming Friday. Instead of updating this field once each week, I'd like to calculate the date for the next coming Friday based off the value in cell A1 (to be concise, if "today" happens to be a Friday, then it would calculate the date of next Friday). (Continuing the example above, the coming Friday would be computed as 2/21/2014. If I open the spreadsheet on 2/21, it would calculate 2/28.)

What formula or step(s) to follow to render this value automatically?

## Conditional Formatting With Month And 'Dates Occurring'

Dec 9, 2009

I'm trying to keep track of training dates for employees.

I have my spreadsheet conditionally formatted to highlight dates according to months, based on if the training date is due: next month, this month, last month, or 2 months ago; all different colors.

I used "Format only cells that contain" and then used "Dates occurring." The spreadsheet worked perfectly until this month; evidently it doesn't recognize Jan of 2010 being "Next Month," so those cells aren't highlighted. Current formatting is custom, mmm-yy. I tried different date formats but it didn't change anything.

Is there a better way to do this?

## Find And Highlight Most Frequently Occurring Number

Feb 5, 2012

I have 12,000 rows on my excel spread sheet of data and my average volume for all those days are 17,661,398.6
I noticed that the so called average did not show up not even once in all of the 12,000 rows. Thus I conclude that the average is not normal ? How to find & highlight the most frequently occurring number, the usual, and or the normal numbers?

## Creating Top Ten List (Finding 10 Most Occurring Values)

Sep 5, 2012

I am trying to create a top ten list of my clients, my clients are listed by customer numbers. The data is listed as follows:

Client ID
7164
7164
7164
5781
5781
6392

So my results should be:

Top 1 7164
Top 2 5781
Top 3 6392

I have been trying to use Mode, but that only returns the top value.

## Conditional Format Based On 2 Criteria Occurring

Oct 9, 2012

I need contents in cell A5 to turn red based on 2 criteria occurring.

IFCell F5 is greater than 0 (zero) AND IF date in H5 is equal to or less than 30 from today's date. PS: if needed I have today's date in A1 for reference.

Can this be done and how?

## Calculate Date Of Next Occurring 3rd Friday Of Month?

Oct 18, 2013

I am trying to calculate the Date of the next occurring 3rd Friday of the month in relation to a Static Date in a cell. So if Static Date in cell is Tuesday of the second week of a month, then I am trying to return the date of the 3rd Friday of that month. If the static date in the cell is the third friday of the month, I just want to return that particular date. And if the static date is after the 3rd Friday of the month, I am trying to return the 3rd friday of the following month. So far here is the formula I am using:

Code:
=DATE(YEAR(A2),MONTH(A2),14+CHOOSE(WEEKDAY(DATE(YEAR(A2),MONTH(A2),4)),2,1,7,6,5,4,3))

The problem I have is that if the static date is after the third friday of the month, this continues to return the 3rd friday of the month of the static date and does not advance to the third friday of the following month. Looks like I cannot attached a sample spreadsheet but here is a screenshot of the sample sheet:

## Find Most Frequently Occurring Or Repetitive Value In Range

May 9, 2008

I have a few columns referencing Crash numbers. The majority of each column is a null value, with about 10-20% of it actually containing the number of a Crash. I want to run one MODE each on a column to see what the most common Crash is.

The following
=MODE(Table_X[Crash Alpha])

Results in a #N/A Value Not Available error. What do I need to change to make it work on the column with some nulls and some numbers (no strings)?

As a secondary question, if I wanted to apply a date filter (the columns are part of a table, including a Date column) like the below:

If(Table_X[DateTime]>F9,If(Table_X[DateTime]<F9+1, etc.)

(F9 being the location where my filter Date is)

Where would I apply that to the Mode? Should I just change it to an If statement, with the Mode positioned like so?

=If(Table_X[DateTime]>F9,If(Table_X[DateTime]<F9+1, MODE(Table_X[Crash Alpha]))

## Count Unique Results: Function &lt;&gt; Filter

Dec 27, 2007

Data: four variables A,B,C and D from A2:D6000

I want a count of unique D values
when A=xxx
and B=yyy
and C=zzz

I have named the A,B,C,D ranges as RangeA, RangeB, RangeC, RangeD

I have used the function

=SUM((RangeA="xxx")*
(RangeB="yyy")*
(RangeC="zzz")*

But what do I use to count-unique values of variable D ?

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(RangeD,RangeD)>0,1)) doesn't work.
=SUM(1/COUNTIF(RangeD,RangeD&"")) doesn't work either

They don't work because D can occur during different combinations of A,B and C. In other words, the D value of 'Smith' can, and does, occur when A is 1,2 or 3 and additionally when B is Pass, Fail, Withdrawn.

They "don't work" because I can use filters on A, B, C and D to see what the correct answer should be .. and the function doesn't return the correct answer.

I hope I've explained this ok - I've been searching on several excel-help websites for 2 days now and one of the days my client is going to want some results.

## Find Most Occurring Values In Column A And Consolidating Each Value Quantity?

Jun 12, 2014

As part of my work as an intern, my company wants me to look at all of the office supplies ordered by their retail stores and find out which items are most ordered.

The invoice excel file I received from our office supplier has a column for the Item # and Quantity of that item. However, there are multiple occurrences of each Item # because this invoice is itemized by store. Is there a way to consolidate all of the values in the Item # with each other to remove the duplicates while also consolidating all of the quantities of each?

For example:
Office Supplies 2.PNG

The invoice is much longer and has many more different Item #s and many more duplicates but this is more or less the same format.

I used COUNTIF with an advanced filter with Unique Records Only selected but I realized that only gave me the count of the Item #s and didnt factor in the Quantity of each Item # ordered by each retail location.
