# Look Across Values In 12 Columns, Return The Number Of Unique Values

Apr 17, 2009

I have 12 columns of data. In those 12 columns of data I have 3 digit numeric IDs. I want to count the unique number of IDs for each row. I have about 14K rows.

What would be the best way to do so?

Some rules about how the data is stored. I have 12 columns of data with anywhere from 1 to 12 columns having data for each respondent. Data always fills left to right and never skips columns.

I have attached an example file that represents how the data is stored and the output I would like (Unique Count).

## Return Unique Values From Columns/Range

Oct 24, 2006

I need to know how to read all the criteria1 brought by the autofilter (in the dropdown box) from one column one by one and then print the table. Is that possible? I've read that it's hard but never read how to do that.

## Counting Number Of Unique Values In Rows/columns

Mar 6, 2003

I have several columns in an excel sheet which contain values (eg. Names). The entered names can be unique or already exist in the column. I need to find out (using a function or macro) how many different names were entered. Duplicates shshould be ignored in the count.

## Count Unique Values In Column Based On Values In Other Columns

Mar 14, 2014

I'm running into an issue trying to calculate unique values in a Data column based on a few variables in other columns.

My current formula in Summary tab D4:D19 is
{=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(Data!\$I\$3:\$I\$66<\$E\$1,IF(Data!\$A\$3:\$A\$66=\$H\$1,
IF(Data!\$C\$3:\$C\$66=A4,ROW(Data!\$I\$3:\$I\$66)))),ROW(Data!\$I\$3:\$I\$66)),1))
+
SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(Data!\$I\$3:\$I\$66<\$E\$1,IF(Data!\$A\$3:\$A\$66=\$I\$1,
IF(Data!\$C\$3:\$C\$66=A4,ROW(Data!\$I\$3:\$I\$66)))),ROW(Data!\$I\$3:\$I\$66)),1))}

This is currently counting the number of times a date value (data column I) appears for that name (A4:A19) in the data when meeting all of the conditions. I need it to instead count the number of times a unique date appears for that name with the additional conditions met (which all appear to work fine).

The results in the pink highlighted cells (Summary column D) should be:

Names starting with A - 3
All others - 2

I've left some other columns in the data with X's so that I can easily convert this back to my working spreadsheet.

## Return Unique Values Between 2 Dates

Oct 9, 2013

I receive a stock on hand report daily which containers 7,000 + lines each day.

I want, in another sheet to show me what new product codes have appeared when compared against the previous day, for example

Date Product #Qty
1/10/201312341
1/10/201312351
1/10/201312361
1/10/201312371
2/10/201312341
2/10/201312351
2/10/201312361
2/10/201312371
2/10/201312381

So in a new sheet I want to show Product # "1238" as this did not appear on the previous days list

## VBA To Return Unique Values From Table

Jul 5, 2013

This is my first post here!

The Question:

This is a hard one, I promise! Is there a way/formula/VBA to return multiple unique values from a table or from multiple columns with criteria?

My Objective

I want to create a table that has unique company names in the first column (done already) and all the connections that belong to a given company in the columns #2....#n. Like this:

Column1 Column2 Column3 ..... Column n
Company X1: Co. ABC Co.XYZ Co.Acme
Company X2: Co. SEB Co. Becme Co. Cecme
....
Company Xn: Co. X1 Co. ABC Co. Acme

I have a small sample that has 20.000 rows and 25 columns of data of 1946 unique companies downloaded from my schools database. This means that doing this by hand would take forever!

The data has many duplicates which makes this complicated. The first column shows company name and columns 2...n present connections. Like this:

Column1 Column2 Column 3 ...... Column n
Company X1: Co. ABC Co. XYZ Co. Acme
Company X1: Co. ABC
Company X1: Co.Acme
Company X1: Co. XyZ Co. ABC

In this example Company X1 is connected to companies ABC, XYZ and Acme. The formula should be able to filter/omit overlapping entries.

## Return Unique Text Values Without Advanced Filter

May 1, 2009

I have a list of Window sizes and types in Range B4:B:43. The descriptions repeat because in Column K I am listing a location for each window in a house.

Example:
B K
3050 SH 1/1 Dining Room
3050 SH 1/1 Kitchen
2030 Fixed Foyer
2030 Fixed Living Room

In the Same sheet Starting on B:45 I want a list of only Unique Window Types:

B:45 and Down:
3050 SH 1/1
2030 Fixed

I'd like this to automatically appear after populating the first list. I used an advanced filter the first time and it worked, but it is not reliable and sometimes returns duplicate values or give me an error message. Plus once again having it happen automatically as the list will change each time I access the sheet would be great.

## Countif To Find Number Of Unique Values And Number Of Times Repeats Happen

Aug 20, 2013

I have a large amount of data and I'm trying to count how many unique values I have in one column. I also want to know how many times each duplicate appears. I tried using a pivot table but it's not working for me.

I also tried the following formula: =SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(H:H,H:H)>0,1)) but it's not quite working.

## Vertical Lookup To Remove Duplicates And Return Unique Values Horizontally?

Mar 3, 2014

In column CT between rows 11:210 is the vertical data that includes duplicates. I am looking to create a formula that can lookup each value between CT11:CT210 and return only the unique values horizontally starting in cell CW9 and onwards.

Example: CT11:CT14 looks like
5x20
6x4
5x20
5x8
and so on and so forth..

I would then like this formula to return the above data (which goes all the way to CT210) in this format starting in cell CW9 - 5x20 then CX9 - 6x4 and finally CY9 - 5x8.

## Auto Number Unique Values

Sep 29, 2008

I have an excel sheet that has multiple rows for one PO number. I've created a row at the top to calculate all of the unique PO numbers in the sheet. However, I want to create another column that will give each unique PO number it's own ID number starting at 1. For instance:

Column B (PO Number)
4 - Counts unique values in B
219
219
219
220
220
221
222
222

Then in Column C I'd want
1 (unique number for 219)
1 (unique number for 219)
1 (unique number for 219)
2 (unique number for 220)
2 (unique number for 220)
3 (unique number for 221)
4 (unique number for 222)
4 (unique number for 222)

## Getting Unique Values In Multiple Columns Using Formulas

May 13, 2014

I need to list only the unique values in a range found in multiple columns. Some cells are blank. I need to list all the unique values in numeric and/or alphanumeric order in another column within the same worksheet. I would prefer non-array formulas, if possible. See the attached file.

In the attached table, I have 5 columns and 5 rows of values in the range B2:F6. The unique values, in order, are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. This looks simple and can be done manually if the file is small but I have 150 columns and 150 rows, thus the need for automation.

## Finding Unique Groups Of Values In Columns?

Dec 17, 2013

I have a file with immunophenotypic markers and their relationship to certain blood cells.

What I need to do is search the list and pull out the groups of defining markers for each blood cell. Some of the cells have many markers, some only have one but I need to find which combinations of markers identify each cell if possible.

I have attached the file (I think!)

## Make A List Of Unique Values Using 3 Different Columns?

Feb 26, 2014

See attached file with a smaller sample of the 1667 row table of data I am working with. What I am looking to do is make a list on another sheet of each every line with a county and have the corresponding Township and range with it. So if I have a cell and I select Audubon county, I would like a list to populate that has the 12 lines of Audubon county in column A, and the Township in column B and the Range in column C.

## Unique Row Headers / Values To Subsequent Columns

Mar 9, 2014

I have a table similar to the table on the left, and I need to convert it to something like what is on the right. Ultimately I will concatenate the numbers in the table on the right too with commas between, so if for some reason it's easier to go straight to that, that's an option.

So in the example below, states will be listed multiple times with a unique number next to it each time. The state may be listed up to say ten times or as little as one. Each time it is listed, it will have a different number next to it. I need to reformat this into one where each state is only listed once, and each possible number is next to it in one row.

## Counting Unique Values, 2 Columns, Alphanumeric

Feb 16, 2005

I have two columns of data: 1 column can be possibly anything, either numeric, alphanumeric, or alpha only (VINS or vehicle numbers). The adjacent column are four different types of vehicles. I've tried concatentating the two to try and count the unique combinations (a truck maybe used more than once during the day), which I can get unique values, but not unique values for each type. Also, the range sizes are variable, but no more that 65 rows.

An example:

5CZ975 Van
25RW04 Straight
5CZ975 Van
ZJ6026 Van

So, the result I am after is 2 vans, 1 straight truck

I found an array in a another post, but it is not working properly (see cell F7 in the attached):

=sum(if(frequency(if(\$b\$2:\$b\$18=\$f7,\$a\$2:\$a\$18),\$a\$2:\$a\$18)<>"",1,0))

## Compare 2 Columns & Place Unique Values In A 3rd

Feb 12, 2008

I have a database with 2 un identical columns: A, and B. Each cell in Column A should have an equivelant cell somewhere in column B. I want a code that could compare each cell in column A with each cell in Column B. Cells in A that don't have equivelant in B should have their values printed in column C.

## List Unique Values Of Multiple Columns

Mar 12, 2008

I need a UDF to make live easier. I have a huge excel file and I need a final function (I suppose a UDF) that lists all values from a range spanning over multiple columns and rows. I would not really like a macro, since it does not update when certain values are changed.

It's part of a bigger functionality, but I need this one, really bad, since it spans over 6000 rows as the search range, and 7000 as the search values. In short:
I got to list all the unique values. They are in specific cells on worksheet 1 (A1:C5 and A25:C31) and should be listed on worksheet2 starting in field A2. As 'simple' as that. Nothing more, nothing less, just list all unique values of a certain range, which I specify. If it can not be done, by selecting the two fields separately, it's no problem at all to list all values in eg A1:C6000. Do note that some of the cells will be blank, and I don't need blanks. I only need the actual data sets. I added a sample excel file, that shows a representation of the data. I can not upload the actual file, since it's way too big (60 MB). So a sample file should give you the idea.

Three sheets:
Data 1: some value lists multiple columns
Data 2: some value lists, again multiple columns
Desired result: the result as it should be listed.

## Add Duplicate Values For Multiple Columns From Unique Data..

Jul 13, 2009

i would like to paste multiple duplicate values from unique values. Is there any way to do it in excel??

Ex:

Table 1:

3MG_HUMAN453
3MG_HUMAN44
3MG_HUMAN953
A1AT_HUMAN285
A1AT_HUMAN76
A1AT_HUMAN234
A1AT_HUMAN653
A1CF_HUMAN96
A1CF_HUMAN23

## Create 1 List Of Unique Values From 12 Columns Of Data

Apr 28, 2014

I have a spreadsheet of 12 columns (A to L), with a list of student names under each down to row 31. Each column represents an after-school club that the child can attend.

However, a child can sign up to multiple clubs, so their name can appear in several places across the spreadsheet.

What I would like to do is have a 13th column which is an overall list of students who have signed up to at least 1 club, i.e. their name appears at least once in columns A to L.

How do I achieve this so that only unique entries are listed and duplicates are removed in this 13th column?

## How To Count The Number Of Unique Values In A List, Based On Another Value

Jul 27, 2009

I need to count the unique values in a list based on another value. i.e.

AB ___ Jones
AB ___ Smith
BC ___ Henry
AB ___ Jones
BC ___ Brown
BC ___ Henry
AB ___ Tomkins

For all the AB's in column 1, I need a formula that will give me all the unique names from column 2, in this case 3. I've tried adapting:

=IF(LEN(June!D5:D100),SUMPRODUCT(1/COUNTIF(June!D5:D100,June!D5:D100)))

but haven't been able to get it to work.

## Count Number Of Unique Values Based On Multiple Conditions

Feb 22, 2011

I'm having a problem with a spreadsheet in Excel. I have in column terras, codti problem and several cells that are repeated. I'm stating that terra appear only once, the information in column each issue should appear in different columns with the sum of how often they appear and codti according to terra.

In excel is best illustrated what I mean!

In total, 5267 lines and need to do this with all. You can do this in excel?

## Formula To Calculate Number Of Unique Values In A Column With Filters

Jul 9, 2014

I have a file with a column containing a series of records where a reference number can be repeated several times. I want to create a formula that will count the number of unique reference numbers in the column.

However - and this is the tricky part - I need it to allow for when the report is filtered, i.e. something like a SUBTOTAL function which ignores the hidden values.

So, the column in the full report has 691 unique values across 2,200+ records. If I apply a filter the column only has say 78 unique values. Is there a formula that can calculate this?

## Count Number Of Unique Values After 1st Part Of Cell Matches?

Aug 8, 2014

Have numerous values in Col A. Col E extracts a list of unique values from that column.

In Col C, the Col A value has had characters added to it.

Need a formula to count the number of unique values from Col C which contain the same prefix from Col A, and place the result in Col F.

A sample workdook is attached with the desired result shown and highlighted in yellow.

## Return Values From Several Columns

Feb 19, 2009

If I am creating a vlookup forumulae, and I want to return values from several columns, I have been manually changing the column it's returning the value from when I drag the formula across the columns. This is ok for a few columns.

eg =VLOOKUP(\$D2,\$AB:\$AJ,1,FALSE), dragged across columns, and then manually edited in each column to read

=VLOOKUP(\$D2,\$AB:\$AJ,1,FALSE), =VLOOKUP(\$D2,\$AB:\$AJ,2,FALSE), =VLOOKUP(\$D2,\$AB:\$AJ,3,FALSE), =VLOOKUP(\$D2,\$AB:\$AJ,4,FALSE)

etc

The value doesn't increase when you drag it.

is there a short cut for doing this automatically?
