# Obtaining List Of Unique Values From List Based On Some Criteria?

May 28, 2014
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

[Code]....

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):

[Code] .....

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 |

ColA has a range of names.

ColB allocates ColA entries to either of two categories by entering 'cash' or 'credit'.

I need help writing a formula to make a unique list of the names in ColA that have 'cash' in ColB. I'd prefer not to use autofilter.

List 2 consists of numbers from 13 to 24, column to the right is either blank of Free

List 1 starts in A2, B2 is either blank or Free

List 2 starts in D2, E2 is either blank or Free

In column G, from G2 i want it to list all values from List 1 and List 2 where their status is Free

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.

I have a worksheet (say, Sheet1) that I am going to manually import a large data set into on a weekly basis for reporting purposes. One of the columns from this data dump will have the header "Design Id" in the first row, but it may not be in the same column every time. I am trying to figure out how to create dropdown lists on a separate worksheet (say, Sheet2) in the same workbook where the data source always looks up the column containing the header "Design Id" from Sheet1 and then returns only the unique values from that column as options in the list.

I have a list box that separates values based on simple criteria. I have these sections separated by

Code:

.Add Item "-------Cat 1------"

' Cat 1 items here

.Add Item "-------Cat 2------"

' Cat 2 items here

'etc

My question is can you add the "----Cat 1----" into the listbox without being able to select it? Or is there another way to separate listbox entries?

ok lets say you have thousands of rows of raw data and you are running vlookups to pull specific data from the raw data to update your spreadsheet. Your raw data consist of some new ideas so when you vlook up, you get an error. In my case i get about 50 errors all spaced out amoung the thousands of rows or raw data. I would like to create a formula that would go and find the error and output a code/value that already exist in the raw data and output that in Cell D1 for example. The it will go and find the second error and output that into cell D2 and then the third error and output that into D3 and so on.....

The idea is that when its done a list of all the errors will have been created so then i can use other formulas to simple add the new info to the workbook. Instead of search through thousands of rows for the errow.

I need a way to find a value in a column which has one or more corresponding values in an adjacent column. Then take all of the corresponding values found and count all occurrences of the found values in another column. But I only want to count the entries if an adjacent column is not blank.

Not the easiest thing to describe. Starting to wonder if I need to think in reverse. I hope the attached example makes more sense.

I have 2 columns of data in one sheet that list dates (say Master Dates) and transactions (say Master Transactions).

In another sheet i would like a formula that can choose the correct transactions that fall between certain dates (call Date Beginning and Date End) and generate a list.

i have tried this array:

If((Master Dates>=Date Beginning)*(Master Dates<Date End),Master Transactions,"")

Problem with this is when used in different columns for different date ranges there are large gaps in the generated list...

I am familiar with the use of the INDIRECT function to retrieve data from different sheets in a workbook. However, is there a simple way of obtaining a list of all sheet names in a workbook (I have about 50) rather than typing them into the sheet individually?

I can see them in the workbook properties but can't copy and paste them.

I have some data with recurring key values and differing values in the second column, I need to produce a unique list of key values with the second values concatenated together.(See below)

The data can be 10 rows to 5000 and I can have anything from 5 to 150 sheets (Separate data sets), a macro would go a long way to keeping me sane.

Sample data Required Output

A | B Z

1| 10 | a 10,a,b,c

2| 10 | b 11,a

3| 10 | c 12,a,b

4| 11 | a

5| 12 | a

6| 12 | b

My system is Windows 8 Excel 2010.

I have a list of all transactions that happened during the day at different locations On another sheet I want to list all the locations and in another column to populate a list of unique transaction codes for each location from the first sheet (all unique values for each location in one cell). I am attaching a spreadsheet in case I am not clear enough (I need to create a Summary). This attachment is really a simplification of a file I work with. The real one has many columns and multiple subtotals, I would not be able to incorporate a method that involve filters

I was trying to produce a list of unique values from a much larger list. I'm using this array function -

{=IFERROR(INDEX(Sheet2!$B$2:$B$100,MATCH(0,COUNTIF($B$1:B1,Sheet2!$B$2:$B$100))), "")}

- which is marvellous and gives me exactly what I want. However my test book only has this dragged down 10 rows and already it takes 20-30 seconds to calculate. The real workbook is likely to stretch to several hundred rows, and to make matters that little more complex where I have Sheet2!$B$2:$B$100 this will relate to a completely separate book on a company network.

Is there any more efficient method of creating this list or will I just have to bear with the calculation speed?

I am confident the answer is no, but is there any formula / combination of formulae that will seek out unique values in a list of duplicates (just like filtering unique records only)?

I have a list of many duplicating sales people and I want to just create a column on another sheet that automatically sorts out the unique values (then I will sum their sales numbers with the SUMIF formula).

(By the way, the reason I just don't use the filter function is because the list always changes so I would need to keep applying it.)

In column A I have values starting at row 4, ranging up to row 1004.

in coulumn Q (starting at row 3) I'd like a list of unique entries from column A

I know this line is my problem

If Range("A" & I) Range("Q4:Q30") Then

but i'm not sure how to compare against all values in a range

Sub FilterSymbol()

Dim I As Integer

Dim X As Integer

X = Range("O2")

I = 4

Do

If Range("A" & I) Range("Q4:Q30") Then

Range("Q" & I) = Range("A" & I)

I = I + 1

Else: I = I + 1

End If

Loop Until I >= X

End Sub

I used this forum to find code to convert a matrix to a list. But I need to repeat then change one column - "Product".

The "Prodcut" vlaue needs to repeat unitl it changes.

I have attached a file with the code in module 1, and samples of where I am, and where I need to be. I think I am close!

Event Manager Status

1call A yellow

2sleep B yellow

3run C red

4jog D pink

5eat E pink

6call E yellow

7sleep F red

I need to output 4 unique Status before the event sleep. When I say unique it is compared to its previous status. So that would be [yellow,pink,red,yellow]. Notice that I could repeat yellow but not a sequential yellow. I cant use previous formula on listing unique values because I have reference point which is sleep, that i need to lookup from a huge pile of data, and i need a counter to move up. I tried vlookup with countif but i still have to define the max range. The data is huge and my menial skills are limited to excel.

I've got an interesting problem which I haven't been able to find an answer for.

A B

PR Yes

PR Yes

PR Yes

DN Yes

DN No

DN No

I need to count how many unique values in column a have every row in column b the same value. So counting for yes values, PR would equal one but DN would equal zero.

I used this formula to find out how many unique files had yes values, now I need to find out how many files only have yes next to them.

=SUMPRODUCT(($B$2:$B$14="Yes")/COUNTIFS($B$2:$B$14,$B$2:$B$14&"",$A$2:$A$14,$A$2:$A$14&""))

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.

=COUNT(

1/FREQUENCY(

MATCH($A$1:$A$50,$A$1:$A$50,0)

),

ROW($A$1:$A$50)-ROW(OFFSET($A$1:$A$50,0,0,1,1))

+1))

I'm looking to tweak this formula to count the number of unique values that occur at least 3 times.

So, imagine that A1:A50 contain 50 last names from the phone book, 27 of which are unique according to the formula above.

Now, further imagine that only 5 of these unique 27 last names appear at least 3 times.

I'm looking for the formula that returns 5.

And (like always), for simplicity and sharing reasons, I'm hoping to find a single formula that occupies a single cell, and does not rely on additional columns of intermediate information.

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 am trying to find a way to create a list of unique items from a named range. I have found a few solutions using filters for ranges that are contained in the one column but not named ranges that contain multiple rows and multiple columns.

Is there any way to copy all of the unique items from the named range to another location? Lets call the named range Table1 and it spans from B2 to J100.

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'm trying to count the number of unique values from a list of over 8,000 records -- and it's very likely that nearly all of the records are unique. At the moment, I am keeping track of an array where I store every unique value I find, expanding the array and adding values as I go, and at the end return the size of the array to tell me how many unique values there are in the range. My method works, but it is very slow, even when I turn on manual calculation.

Here is what I have so far:

Function CountUniqueCases(inputRange As String)

Dim i, j As Integer

Dim cCaseID As Range

Set cCaseID = Worksheets("Results").Range(inputRange)

Dim uniqueCases() As String

Redim uniqueCases(1)

uniqueCases(1) = cCaseID.Cells(1).Value

Is there a faster way to do this? I was hoping there was an array search function built in to VBA, but apparently not. My first attempt at running this function returns about 7904 out of ~8000 as being unique.

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.

Sheet1

A B 1 Group A A 2 Group A C 3 Group B B 4 Group C C 5 Group C B 6 Group D B 7 Group E C 8 Group E B

The solution is

Sheet1

I'm trying to create a drop down list which returns values based on what has been selected in the previous drop down list in the adjacent cell, e.g. if 'Apples' is selected in the previous cell then you should only be able to select from 'Gala, Granny Smith', or if 'Oranges' is selected you should only be able to select 'Seville, Blood Orange'. Is there a formula which would do this, or can I use a pivot table somehow? I'm totally stumped.
