Importing Values From Sheets To Create Unique List
Jun 2, 2009
I need to be able to pull information from 5 columns on 5 different pages, and pull all of the unique names out of it. From there, I need to create a list of all of these names. More often than not, this could only be three names, but I still would like this to be automatic because eventually it could be 50 or 60, and manually editing this list would get tedious. Lastly, is it possible to have a list create cells? For example: I have information on row 4, this one will start on row 6. My next group of information starts on row 14. That leaves 7 rows for information. I don't want to leave a large gap at the top of the page, so I'd like to be able to create cells if the list I'm trying to create has more information on it. Seems plausible in my mind, but I'm still new to excel.
I am trying to create a macro that will create a unique list of the values in the same column across 5 worksheets, "Question1", "Question2", etc, and place the list in a new worksheet, "Summary".
The values are in column A in all of the worksheets, and the number of rows in each worksheet will change each day. I need the unique list to be added to the sixth worksheet, "Summary".
Also, after the list is created on the Summary worksheet, I need a count of each field by worksheet and a total. This is how I currently have the Summary set up:
Part Type|Total|Question1|Question2|Question3|Question4|Question5 Name|=SUM(C2:F2)|=COUNTIF(Question1!$A:$A,A2)| =COUNTIF(Question2!$A:$A,A2)|=COUNTIF(Question3!$A:$A,A2)| =COUNTIF(Question4!$A:$A,A2)|=COUNTIF(Question5!$A:$A,A2)
I have a list of sales events that ran at various venues, together with how many people attended and how much revenue was brought in by sales. This data is arranged by week. One venue will never have more than one event per week, but different venues may have sales events on the same week.
My table looks like:
In reality this list could be thousands of rows long.
“Event week” is the calendar week of the event. “Weeks open” shows for each event how many weeks that venue has been open (may or may not be useful!).
What I need to do is to be able to pick a number of weeks (preferably changeable by entering into a cell) and have a list produced of each venue that has run for at least that many weeks, and the sum of people and sales in those first X weeks. My idea of output, if the user input “2” as the number of weeks would therefore look something like:
Note that 1)only venues that have run at least 2 meetings are shown in the output 2)even if venue has run over 2 meetings, only people and sales figures from the first 2 are summed up and displayed.
In this case. Later on I need to produce a frequency chart/histogram grouping the results into categories, but I know how to do this as long as I can get to the step before – but wanted to mention it in case there are shortcuts.
Have been battling with this with pivots, database functions, array formulae etc. for a long time.
Attached is the spreadsheet with sample data. The red table is the part I am stuck on. The solution has to work in Excel 2003.
I am aware of the Visio capabilities of importing data into the org chart wizard to create an organization chart. Is there a similar capability in Excel only? I know there are smart art org diagrams, but if I have a spreadsheet of several hundred people, is there a way to import it into a chart (again, similar to the Visio process).
I've searched the forum and believe this thread to be the closest to what im looking for, but its doesnt completely apply: matrix to list conversion. I have an attachment to support my questions (see attached). I have a matrix of words (strings) that contain repeating and non-repeating contents. The matrix also has spaces which are of no value. Essentially, the VBA needs to ' analyze' this matrix and create a consolidated frequency list (as shown in the file).
The matrices are HUGE and therefore some of the clumsy VBA i am using is turning out to be a bit inefficient. The file also contains formulas and such that I cannot use AutoFilter nor can I use Insert or Delete rows...so the VBA shouldnt use those either.
I have a number of text columns, side by side in a worksheet, containing names. I wish to combine these columns into one new column, removing any duplicates, to create a single list of names. Is there a simple way to do this?
So far I created code that creates a Distinct Unique item's list for one column. It works as it should but I want to modify the code to create a Distinct Unique item's list for two columns that are related to another i.e. a person's name to their license #.
Here is the code below that works for one column only:
I have a list of project numbers that is over 7000 rows long [example attached]. Many numbers are repeated. This list comes out of a financial reporting system. I need to extract a list of unique numbers in numerical order. I have two solutions working, one with SUMPRODUCT formulas and one with MACRO. Here's the MACRO solution. But it takes about 20 seconds to execute. I am just looking to cut down on execution time. I am using this macro a few times on different lists in the same program. Is there a better [faster] way to do this?
Any way in ms excel to create unlimited unique validation list. i am working on a small data where one colums data(Validation list) changes on the selection of previous column data filed. i am using indirect function with defined name range. but ms-excel is not accepting new names now and still i have 75 datagrops left to define and validate.
is there any formula or vba code to fix this problem.
In D2:D11, I want a non-duplicate list of all the "1" names, i.e., Bob and Josh. In E2:E11, a list of all the "2" names (Sally, Bill & Jacob), and so on. Sorted would be nice, but not necessary. When new names and their numbers are added to A1:B200, they need to automatically show up in D2:G:201 as appropriate. I've looked over VLOOKUP, INDEX, MATCH, etc., but all seem to simply return the first and not every match. Maybe I'm just missing it.
Is this possible without VBA? Not that I have any objection to it, but delving into and learning it is a little outside the available time I have now. If it takes VBA I'll address it when I can free up some time.
In Excel I recorded a macro by carrying out some operations and then copied the code into VBA code window to the click event of a button expecting the code would operate well but in vain. What is wrong with my operations? By cliking command button placed on a userform I want to copy the date of one column to another and the data thus copied into another column should contain only unique value.
In that file, you can see there is a list of somewhat similar data across 5 columns. Some of the entries are duplicates, some are different by only one character. What I want to be able to do is generate a list of all the unique rows of data, taking into account the data from ALL 5 columns. The list can be on another sheet or simply just further down on the same sheet, that doesn't matter too much.
I could do it if it were just one column of data, but struggling trying to do it with several columns.
I need a Macro to create a unique, rolling data list. On Sheet 1, a report is pasted(from outside source) in cell A3(Rows 1 & 2 are headers) on a weekly basis. It is always the same amount of columns wide(138). The number of rows will always vary but will never be more than 500.
Hereâ€™s what I need for Sheet 2:
-Column A should be a copy from Column A on Sheet 1 (data is ITEMS) -Column B should be a copy from Column BH on Sheet 1 (data is QUANTITY of items) -Column C should be a copy from Column BI on Sheet 1 (data is PRICE of items)
Hereâ€™s the challenge (when the new report is pasted on Sheet 1):
-Sheet 1. Find new ITEMS not on Sheet 2 and paste them at the end of the report on Sheet 2 along with their QUANTITY and PRICE -Sheet 1. Find any ITEMS already on Sheet 2, then update new QUANTITY and PRICE from Sheet 1 onto Sheet 2 -Sheet 2. Leave ITEMS alone that are now missing from the new report on Sheet 1
I am getting a run time error 1004 during a copy-paste of a named range. I've read other posts and the help file and know it's related to defining an object, but I'm not clear on exactly what hasn't been defined.
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()

The function below should return the value in a cell IF the string in the cell two cells to the left of it is "Nemo" Omitting the part highlighted in blue, my function returns a list of unique values...but when it's included, nothing is returned at all. Perhaps, there is an error in the syntax that I'm overlooking?
Function listUnique(rng As Range) As Variant Dim row As Range Dim elements() As String
this code "Creates a New Workbook" for each item listed in an excel table, then, copy all unique values in their respective Workbook and save it. So, the problem is this. instead of creating a "New Workbook", i want to open a previously created Workbook (template) and do the procedures listed above. Is this posible?
Sub Copy_To_Workbooks() Dim CalcMode As Long Dim ws1 As Worksheet Dim ws2 As Worksheet Dim WSNew As Worksheet Dim rng As Range Dim cell As Range Dim Lrow As Long Dim foldername As String Dim MyPath As String Dim FieldNum As Integer Dim FileExtStr As String Dim FileFormatNum As Long Set ws1 = Sheets("Sheet1") '<<< Change If Val(Application.Version) < 12 Then 'You use Excel 97-2003 FileExtStr = ".xls": FileFormatNum = -4143 Else If ws1.Parent.FileFormat = 56 Then FileExtStr = ".xls": FileFormatNum = 56 Else FileExtStr = ".xlsx": FileFormatNum = 51 End If End If..............
1. Using a formula, I am trying to to obtain a list of unique values (string) (caveat: see #2) from the range E2:E10000 (arbitrarily chose 10000 - the row number is variable)(see #3).
I currently have a formula that seems to work for this purpose but I don't know how to add the condition in #2 (below)
2. To include all unique string values except those starting with the letters "IC"
3. Is there a way to make this formula so that it can only seek values up to the last row, and not go to the 10000th row if not necessary? The E column has no empty cells until after the last row that contains data.
Here is the formula I currently use which serves #1 (above):
Any way to improve/simplfy this formula for the purpose describbed in #1? How can I add the condition in #2? Can you see a way to include #3? The most important issue here is #2.
Example of desired results:
Column A | Column B AA | AA DD | CC AA | DD CC | DD | DD | IC | IC |
