I have an excel assignment that has about 4000 orders for wood. I am suposed to find the company that ordered the most wood and of what kind. I am really at a loss for how to do this and have combed over my book quite afew times trying to figure it out. However it has little if any excel info and nor does the ** that came with it outside of how to install data analysis tools. I figure I need to find a way to get excel to combine the numbers together for orders from the same company but after trying for afew hours I have gotten no where.

Got a huge dataset with a list of non-repeating names. For example, among the dataset is about 1,500 names that dont repeat itself in a column. How can I isolate just that list of non-repeating names from that huge dataset?

I have a formula-generated defined list of names. I need to select them in random order without duplication and without choosing any blanks in the list.

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.

I have a dynamic list of items which I have to assign serial numbers to. If the serial numbers go in sequence, it would have been easy. But the problem is, they don't.

They go from A1 - A9, B1 - B10, C1 - C10 .... Is there a way I can assign an array to ensure that once the macro hits A9, it starts from B1, and once it hits B10, start from C1?

I have a data set where the row headings repeat a lot. I have 5 headers repeated probably 30-45 times each. Eg. Truck, Car, Van, Tank, House, Car

At the moment I am using the formula... =INDEX($B$2:$M$45,MATCH($O$2,$A$2:$A$45,0),MATCH(O4,$B$1:$M$1,0))

which will only return the result of the first occurrence of the cell it is looking for (for eg. I am looking for the values in the cells in columns labelled 'Car', is it possible for it to look past the first occurrence in the data set and find all the values?

Sheet4 in my book looks like this: .............A.......................B................................C..................

I......Invoice No…..…Starting Serial No……...……Ending Serial No 2…………ND12………..6011000000013652……. ..6011000000103652 3…………ND13………..6011000000116526……....6011000000246977 4…………RF4……….….6006000001255724……..…6006000011249564 5.........RF4...........6005000000023652.........6005000000095624

note that the last 4 numbers of the series are randomly generated for security reasons and are not part of the range of the the serial No’s

So Invoice ND = 10 consecutive numbers, Invoice ND13 = 14 and Invoice RF4 = 1000 and RF4(again) = 8

The list on this sheet is a mile long

What I need is a “search box” with two windows in it

In one box I will type a serial number and in the second box I will get the Invoice number

The challenge is that the serial number could be between Starting and Ending serial No’s thus if I were to type serial number 6006000001086598 in the first box the answer in the second box will be : RF4

I have in my sheet from C13 to C350 many serial numbers which I manually type them in. These serials are 5 digit numbers, and I was just wondering if there's a function or formula that will not allow duplicate numbers in that column.

I am trying to get Excel to write a series of incremented serial numbers to an external program. I need 10 per line, then for the code to send ENTER and start writing on the next line. Following is my current code:

For i = 0 To qty - 1 SendKeys prefix_sn & next_sn + i & "," Next i

I have a spreadsheet with a list of about 3800 lines of dollar values in "K" that correspond to various serial numbers in "E".

These serial numbers come up multiple times at different place throughout the 3800 lines.

I know by using SUMIF I can calculate the total value of each serial number, but is there a way to bring the serial numbers across to correspond to the sum of the dollar values?

I have a userform for keeping records and would love to incorporate a new feature. I would want to generate a random serial number for each entry made with the userform.

I've modified this macro I found on this forum, all it does is compares 2 lists of 6 digit serial numbers and and then tells me which numbers are in list 1 that are not in list 2.

However, I want to modify it so that it also gives me the numbers in list 2 that are not in list 1 (put into column F). I then need it to cut the matching serial numbers (in columns A and B) from sheet 1 and paste them into sheet 2.

my spreadsheet has duplicate serial numbers in column A and the corresponding row in column B has mutliple descriptions for the same serial number. I need to combine those descriptions into 1 cell rather than having multiple rows for the same serial number. is there an IF formula that I can combine with a concatenate that will capture what I need?

I want to make continuing serial numbers in excel in order to print labels to be able to track my deliveries. i know i can drag the fill cursor to automatically make it go the next number. however i also want my serial number should represent the month and the day the invoice was printed.

for example i want the serial number should be

column a (Jan 01) column b (Jan 02 ) column c (Jan 03) a1-01-01 a1-02-01 a1-03-01 a1-01-02 a1-02-02 a1-03-02 a1-01-03 a1-02-03 a1-03-02

The first number represents the month (example -a1 for Jan) The second number represents the day and The third number represents the invoice

How can i make that when i pul the cursor down it should continue with the invoice number

However when i continue right it should move the day number?

i have a list of serial numbers in a column, say column a, for example, and i have corresponding data in columns to the right of this, say just column B for example- I also have a header on column B which counts the data in column b. (just a COUNTA, counting occurences of 'x' )

my issue is this: i need to limit the range of the COUNTA dynamically- by the number of serial numbers in column A. for example: if i have 10 serial numbers, i want my COUNTA range to be B1:B10 (excluding header) and... i need this to be a built-in formula, NOT a VBA macro. i need it to update automatically, as soon as another serial number is entered. i've tried using references to named ranges and all sorts of language tricks, and i cant seem to get it to work. (such as:

' =counta(b1:namedrange1)

i'm going to have to do the same thing with COUNTIF's, so if that is also easily explainable,

i Am trying to get this project underway and can attempt this manually in excel but will take ages. I was wondering if there is a code I can use. I am trying to get a 7 character alphanumeric serial number for units as a 4(alpha) and 3 numeric number. like say AAAA001 , i want to list on a row all the numbers on a sheet right upto ZZZZ999

I need to make a list that has 90 people and each day I need it to pick 4 random people. I need it to keep rotating people daily for the entirety of the monthfrom the first day of the month without utilizing the same people over again. I not excel savy at all so I need it dummy proof

I have a spreadsheet that lists numbers in a column. They increase 1 number at a time, however the same number is listed 24 times before increasing to the next. Scaled down to 3 times it would look like this: 111, 222, 333, 444, 555, each one of those individual numbers would have their own cell. When I highlight the column and drag down, it starts doing decimals..how do I get it to recognize it? sample.xlsx

I want to drag it down to continue the pattern. Right now, I type a couple of numbers and drag to finish the section.

I have three cells in a column. A1, A2 and A3. There are only 4 possible numbers that these can have in them, 0,1,2,and 3. Here is the catch. None of them can repeat, although they can be in any order. And the column may only have data in the first cell or the first two or all three. Is there a simple macro that will alert me to when a number is repeated? It needs to be a macro rather than a apreadsheet function.

I am trying to do something that is probably impossible, but I figured if anyone could come up with a solution, it would be you folks here at Mr. Excel, so here goes.

I'm trying to set up two columns in Excel 2000; for simplicity sake, let’s just call them Column A and Column B. Each row in Column A will contain a code (a combination of letters and numbers) that represents one of 65 different workstations, and they could repeat multiple times. Each row in Column B will contain a number that represents a specific tool, and there are potentially hundreds of different tool numbers.

What I am trying to accomplish is to have something alert me when any tool number in column B appears alongside more than one workstation code in column A. It would really be nice if something like conditional formatting could be used to change the text to red or something when this happened. I know I can use filtering to accomplish this, but with hundreds of different tool codes, filtering just takes too long.

I am busy with a very large dataset +-20 000 records showing the movement data and I am having problem with inserting missing data: I have columns titled day hour and position, but multiple records for each as data was initally recorded by second. Data looks like this

What I need to end up with is a sequential dataset running from day 1 to 388 with hours 1-24 of each day. Positions need to be filled in for all data recorded (see above). The big problem is that movements between positions need to be recorded and accounted for i.e if more than >80 of time was spent at the position Z3 then that is the position for the hour.

I need a function or VB code to parse through a column of numbers and find a repeating pattern. The column has some initial numbers that do not fit the pattern and I need those returned along with the repeating pattern.

I have a set of data in once cell and its strung out. I'm trying to pull the numbers that follow certain words from that data. That's easy enough with the find and mid function for the first one. But after that I have a repeating word (see below) and different numbers that follow it. So I want to pull the second number string after that word, the third and so on.

I've attached an excel file that explains this better.

sorting data I use in a workbook for athletics. I've really chopped down my workbook for upload, In the worksheet "Leaderboard" I can call up stats for different lifts, and it finds (in this case) the top 5 lifts and the names for the kids that have those corresponding lifts.

My problem is that when two or more kids have the same lift, it will only call up the name of the first instance of that lift. You can see this in the "Leaderboard" worksheet, and the name "Adams, Andrew" appears for both lifts of 75. I would appreciate any help on how to correct this, as I've searched the Internet for weeks now looking for a solution. I've tried experimenting with different things as well, all to no avail.
