I am making an excel document that has a log of repeating data, one column of which includes names. At the bottom of the document, I am trying to make a small box that tallies all of the people within the document and the number of times they placed an order. What is the formula for when you want excel to find a word within the document? Right now I am using =CELL("CONTENTS",C6) etc. So all that does is repeat the word when it is used. But it duplicates the word in the box down below because it appears in the log numerous times.
I need a list in my form, simple "Name/Number" list (only two options) but i don't want it to refer to any cell in the worksheet. I want to input a text in a textbox and with the selection in the list above i want to have multiple choices at how to approach the text (if i input a name i want it to be different than if i input a number). All the info i came up on the web refers to lists made upon a range of cells. How can i make a list without involving ranges of cells?
I have filtered a list, defined a range of the visible cells. Now I want to loop thru the range and process each cell. In the process I have to refer to the next visible cell. How can I achive this? both .Offset and .Item result in the next none-visible cell.
In my current spreadsheet I use Offset to change the values of various cells. The problem is that if I make any changes to the columns it throws the whole offset thing off. So, instead of using offset to paste all the data is there an alternative that would work better?
I was thinking maybe I could name a column as a range and then have the cell in that row equal a value.
I have my dummy data, and I have (what I think) is how I want the data to be shown. My friend uses Google Sheets, but I prefer Excel. I am trying to convert the code because I am a stickler for excel. Typically I can convert codes some easily, but this is way beyond me.
For Column A: I want to create a list on sheet 'Setup!' based on ids!D2:D="yes". If that list has duplicate entries, I would like only the first entry to show up, but for the next entries I would like the cell to be blank. (this is important for the next step) For Column C: I want to have the corresponding dates go with the name entry. For Column D: I want to have the notes go with the corresponding date entry. (I believe I can manipulate Column C's code to do Column D myself).
I am also going to upload a data sheet, and an expected results sheet.
I am working on an email marketing project and i have a small problem. I have two different email list. One (List A) is a large list of potential leads. The other (List B) is a list of leads we are not supposed to market to. I need to delete every lead on List A whose email address is also in List B, so that we do not send unwanted emails to our clients.
The best way i have to do this so far is to go through line by line, which is very impractical.
In case it matters here is out list format. Each list has 10,000 + leads. Each lead occupies a row. The row stretches across 13 columns and each column holds a different variable about the lead (names, state, email address).
The attached file (a copy of my main one) has a list of our engineers, and what stock they carry. The stock parts are the 64, 65, 66... numbers.
I need to create a list from this (as underneath the main table), for all instances where there is a 'Y' in the columns next to each engineer. So if an engineer has 3x pieces of stock, they need to appear in the list 3x times. If they have 1x piece of stock, they appear in the list once.
I want to use a value in one cell as a row designation, and a value in another cell as a column designation. Ultimately, the values will be text which will refer to row and column headers. What formula would allow me to do this? example:
A1 contains B B1 contains 2 B2 contains "tribbles"
I need to check a list of names to see if there are duplicate entries. At the bottom of the list I would like to count the number of duplicates. In the list I want conditional formatting to highlight cells where the duplicate appears. Using Excel 2007.
Here is the deal I have 4 columns. Each line gives you the following information: The Id is the record number, Code_Name is a code for each Fox in the study, date and area is a sub area in a bigger grid. Basically I have an area divided by squares and every time a marked fox enters in one of my squares a new line in the data is created. What I won’t to know is if a fox when in my area of study will return to the same squares or not.
SSS1 02-Jan-09 1A1
RRR1 02-Jan-09 2A2
BBB1 02-Jan-09 1B1
What I’m trying to achieve is a 5th column were ill get a logical value of TRUE or FALSE if, for each fox in the next available record a fox went back to the same square or not. So if you check for the fox RRR1 I have 2 records one in 2 of January in area 1A1 and a second in 7 of January in the same area. For the Fox BBB1 you will see that she was always in different areas and for CCC1 she only came back to one square.
The problem is I have over 400 fox’s and 12000 records and I’m trying to get a way of doing it automatically.
I need to identify duplicates in a list and have the foilowing formula:
This works ok but i have a further condition which i dont know how to factor into the formula. I think i could write some vba to determine the dupes but i was hoping to avoid this as im sure it will take me an hour or so. Duplicates are identified at the moment as being identical numbers in column "amount", i now need to specify duplicates as being identical numbers in this range where there is at least one row with no pay date filled in in col "paydate"
I was wondering if there is a formula or a vba code to return each number once from a list. For example I’ve got a list with app. 500 rows and maybe 80 different numbers in there, so one number could be 50 times in the list, another number maybe just once. Is there a formula, which returns me each number once? Can’t think of any, or do I have to use a vba code be get the information?
I have data in the form of a table. For example a list of duplicate names, each of these names have a corresponding date (lease expiry date). The problem is that the duplicate names have varying dates. So the remove duplicates function does not work because i need to remove the duplicate names with the older dates. I want the latest dates to remain behind.

I have a list of Dates in Col. A Column B contains both numerical and text values.
I need to define a value in column B, and create a list of the dates that these occured on, on another sheet. Auto filter doesn't work because there are several different columns. If I try to use it I also get the values in the other columns.
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.)
I am trying to work out how I can assign a sequential value to sets of duplicate data within a list. i.e. where I have duplicates in a list I want each of the duplicates (that are in the same set) to have a sequential number assigned and for that to start from 1 each time it discovers a new set of duplicates.
RED GREEN YELLOW PURPLE RED ORANGE BLACK GREEN RED
Where a colour is duplicated in the list I want it to have a sequential number assigned. When a new set of duplicates is found the numbering starts from 1 and sequentially increases. So the above data list would resulting in the following output
RED 1 GREEN 1 YELLOW PURPLE RED 2 ORANGE BLACK GREEN 2 RED 3
Have tried variations of the RANK function, but not sure how to get the sequential nu,bering to restart with each unique set of duplicates. I would also like to do this without VBA if possible using the built in functions.
I'm pulling data from my servers (alarms) and have roughly 10 alarm points, reporting 9000 alarms. I've been able to pull them off the server on an excel file, have been able to sort them, but would like to venture into the hope that there is some sort of formula that would take the duplicate alarms(cell a1-a9000), delete them, and report how many duplicates were removed from the list in cell b1-b10
xyz xyz xyz xyz 123 123 zzz
somehow it could be turned into "xyz 4" "123 2" "zzz 1"
I have giant excel spreadsheet that I am trying to clean up. I want to make one of the columns (with around 3000 rows and may of them are the same) into a drop down list. However, when I try doing so from the data validation tab, I get duplicates, triplicates, etc. of the same item.
(Excel for Mac 2011). The size of my data means am crashing by usual methods of sorting - I need a formula for this rather than pivot tables.
I have a list of c. 40,000 rows. Col A is client name (largely different but some duplicates); Col B is Policy type (eg Home, Motor, Travel) and Col C is earnings on that policy (eg -60). An example would be:
Name Policy Type Earnings Johnson Home
So I need to figure out (via a formula) two things:
2) How to build a simple table to show the relationship between policies. This would have Motor, Home, Travel, Motorcycle as columns and also as rows - the data would then be how many policies and in each cross point?
I have tried just working the data using Countifs etc, but as soon as I apply it to the whole data set the machine freezes, presumably due to its size
I would like to identify duplicates in a list using conditional formatting in Excel 2007.
I have tried choosing to identify duplicates using the formula that I have found on many threads throughout the message board:
This function works up to 15 characters in a cell, but Excel seems to be treating all digits after the first 15 as the same, resulting in a "fuzzy match" where I want an exact match. Many of the values in my list are 18 characters long, in text format to prevent rounding.
I've noticed that Excel treats the 18-characters values the same way when sorting; for example, it treats these two values as the same:
Is there a way to force Excel to examine those last four digits for the purpose of sorting & identifying duplicates?
