# Searching How Many Times Something Appears In Spreadsheet?

Dec 14, 2012
At work I have been tasked with building a summary excel document that details people's names, grades etc. To be accurate, each person has their own positional code (a unique number), which I used in my lookup formula. After weeks of work, I have 1500 odd names down. However, this is 6 short of what I need the number to be. This is the cause of great stress,as this has to be ready on Monday, and I just don't have the time or sanity to sit there copying and pasting a number into find 1500 times to find the 6 numbers I have accidently ticked off as in the document. Therefore, it would be useful if there were some way to tell me how many times a number appears in the document. Each number should obviously appear twice (once in the data sheet, and once in the appropriate table)

The attached spreadsheet is a sample of a master sheet I need to maintain. Keep in mind that the spreadsheet has hundreds of names on it and 10 sheets in the workbook. What name appears most in the "person who called" column, then I need to know out of all the people who called, what percentage of calls he made....

I have to do this on each sheet, so if it is possible to have it work for all the sheets.

I have 2 columns with data in them, basically representing a gaussian distribution. Column A has the "X-axis" values and so is uniformly ascending with no duplicates. Column B has the "Y-axis" values and increases up to a maximum and then decreases again (this is data from an instrument and so its not completely smooth but is close). An example is below.

0 4

1 8

2 16

3 27

4 50

5 27

6 16

7 8

8 4

What I would like to do is get the 2 Column A values where the corresponding column B value is half of the max (in the case above, 25 is not available so the closest is 27). I am trying to calculate the difference between these values, so in the example, I would have 5-3. Is there a way to do this?

I have a problem with LAN function. I have following formula to count how many times appears number 2 in a box: LEN(I5)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(I5,"2",""))

in I5 I have 1,2,3,12,34,22,21 . Outcome is 5 which is not what I need. What I wanted to do is to get output of how many times appears number 2, not how many times appears expression 2 (it counts also 22, 21, 12, 2) . The output that I need should be 1 since number 2 appears just once in the box.

I have a few spreadsheets with a few land transactions. I want to see if the parties involved are male or female, or both (in case of joint titles). And how many. I've tried to use ISNUMBER formulas and COUNTIF formulas but I can't seem to make them work. I've attached an example of what I need to do, the original has many more column with more info, and the names are in a different language which makes it easier to identify as female or not (like 'phany' in english female names etc).

I am trying to simply count the number of times each entered name appears on my list IE if John Smith appears 3 times in one sheet, in a column after his name would simply be the number 3. I tried this doing =COUNTIF(A8,A:A) Where A8 is his name and column A is all names. I keep a return value of 0 every time!!!!! I even tried =COUNTIF(A7,A12) where they were both the same names. And yes,I did do Ctrl + Shift - enter

I have a sheet set up to record free pour tests for my bar team.

Column A has the date.

Alternating columns from B (B..D..F.. etc) hold a drop down with the staff names

Alternating columns from C (C..E..G.. etc) hold a drop down with either pass or fail as the result.

What I need to do is count the number of times a particular staff name appears, but more importantly how many times they pass or fail.

I can easily count the names, but how do I count if they have pass or failed?

I have a two ranges of columns containing names. I need to count how many times a specific name appears in ColumnN - Easy enough =COUNTIF(N$2:N$1047,Q3) ...Q3 being the name I am looking for.

Now comes the part I am stuck on. I need to count how many times a name appears in ColumnK but only if there is no name in ColumnN.

I tried =IF(COUNTIF(N3:N1047,""),COUNTIF(K2:K1047,T3),)

I want to count how many times a particular text appears in Column A depending on the number times another text appears in Column B.

Say for example if I have in Column A {A, B, C, D}nd column B I have {AA,BB,CC) and if I want to check how many times column A has "A" value when the column B has "CC" value, then how should I proceed with this ?

I need a formula that links to another workbook where it looks in a column for the oldest date which appears more than 10 times.

So if the oldest date was 01/01/2006 but it only appeared twice, it would ignore it, but if there was then 02/02/06 which appeared 11 times, it qould quote that date in a cell in the workbook

I have number of items and many items appear more than once. I need a formula so that counts the number of item appearing maximum number of times and it displays the name of the text written NOT the number of times it is written. It should also calculate number of times it appears in a particular month.

For E.g.

Table 1-5-2012

Chair 1-5-2012

Fan 3-5-2012

Table 10-5-2012

Fan 1-6-2012

Window 1-6-2012

Glass 1-7-2012

Glass 9-7-2012

The formula should work as follows

Table 2 May-12

Glass 2 July-12

Right now, I'm trying to find a way to count the number of times a certain phrase appears in a column.

I'm currently using this formula for exact values: COUNTIF(A1:A5,"Hello"), but this only works if an entry in a column is exactly: "Hello"

I want to be able to count a column even if it has more words, such as "Hello how are you" etc., and this column would be counted because it has the word "hello" in it.

I've got a set of data that I update once a month and the number of team members per team changes all the time. I'm trying to write a formula that basically says, if the date matches AND the manager name matches, count the number of team members.

In the attached sample if A2 and B4 are found in the data set, count the number of SalesReps they have. So I'm looking at Sarah for February 2013, she has two sales reps that sold something, but Katherine appears twice, so I'm not looking for a result of 3, the correct answer is 2. How do I write the formula?

A2 will look to the data range of A14:A23 and SarahK will look to I14:I23, but I want to count H14:23.

I am trying to use find and replace but the text that i'm searching for appears three times in the cell. I only need to replace the first occurrence in the cell. Alternatively, if there is a way to do this, can the second and third occurrence be changed?

Example:

Cheryl called Louie to advise she would be late for the meeting. Louie responded that he would meet Cheryl at her office. Cheryl confirmed.

I need to change the first 'Cheryl' to a job title and the second and third Cheryl to her initials (CL) so would read:

Manager of Aboriginal Affairs called Louie to advise she would be late for the meeting. Louie responded that he would meet CL at her office. CL confirmed.

the number of days when there were 0 cases

the number of days there was 1 case

the number of days when there were 2 cases.

As yet there are no days in which there were more than 2 cases but there might be in the future.

I have a list of dates when operations took place in that room. On some days the it was not in use, so those dates don't appear in the list. Some days there was 1 case, so that date appears once in the list. On some days there were two cases, so that date appears twice in the list.

What I've done so far is create a pivot table that contains all the dates, then grouped it by day and counted the number of times there was 1 or 2 cases in a day by hand, then subtracted the total to get the days when there weren't any cases.

I have 12 worksheets, each with a list of email addresses in the 2nd column. These are all email addresses that did not respond by opening/clicking our newsletters. I'm trying to find how many times each person did not respond in the last 12 emails sent. I will delete those that consistently do not respond to our newsletters. I know how to do a simple vlookup but have never tried across multiple sheets.

So I guess I want it to check all sheets for each email address and count how many times it appears on these No Response email lists.

Column 1 is an email ID, Column 2 is an email address.

I have a table with two columns.

PartNumLoaction

CCN01905J6

CCN01905J100

CCN01905J200

CCN01905J300

CCN01905J400

CCN04455J800

CCN05363J3

CCP01960C1

CCP01960C3

I would like to create another table (in a new sheet) which displays the number of times each PartNum appears in the first table.

PartNumQTY

CCN019055

CCN044551

CCN053631

CCP019602

The amount of rows in a table is variable and can reach thousands of rows.

i have a spreadsheet where I need to count up how many times a particular phrase within a text string appears. The text string will be duplicated many times throughout the spreadsheet.

For example :

Miss X was at work on Saturday

Mr XX was at work on Saturday but not Tuesday

Miss Y was at work on Tuesday

So I would like to count up how many times "work on Saturday" appears in my spreadsheet, and then as a seperate query, how many times "work on Tuesday" appears.

I am using this formula to count the number of times “closed” appears between

particular dates:

=SUMPRODUCT(--($B$1:$B$23=F1)*($C$1:$C$23="Closed")*($A$1:$A$23>=$I$2)*($A$1:$A$23<=$J$2))

I have tried applying the same logic to another formula where I wanted to

Also count the number of times “Not Stated” and “In Progress” are shown.

However when I do I am receiving a ‘0’ number in return. The formula I wrote

was:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(CS_Ticket_Report_Dump!D$1:D$50000=C6)*

(CS_Ticket_Report_Dump!G$1:G$50000="Closed")*

(CS_Ticket_Report_Dump!G$1:G$50000="In Progress")*

(CS_Ticket_Report_Dump!G$1:G$50000="Not Started")*

(CS_Ticket_Report_Dump!A$1:A$50000>=AN$1)*

(CS_Ticket_Report_Dump!A$1:A$50000<=AO$1))

I have a 2007 Excel spreadsheet (saved as .XLS) with worker names in column A and error types in column B. Column B can have multiple entries (which are sometimes duplicative of each other) separated by a hard return.

What I need to do is run tallies to determine the number of errors by type for each person, counting the value every time it appears, even if it is more than once in a particular cell. The ultimate goal is to generate a formula to track the number of occurrences for all error types types for the person in Column A (i.e. one formula each to track ABC's Procedural errors, ABC's Technical errors, ABC's Admin errors, DEF's Procedural, etc) though ideally I just need a formula to calculate any one of those and I can edit it to get the rest. Here's a sample screenshot:

The COUNTIFS formula is where I started but that only seems to count cells with the value as opposed to occurrences of the value. I did find this formula in my searches but it doesn't seem to work:

=SUM(LEN(B1:B100)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(B1:B100),"Procedural","")))/LEN("Procedural")

I want to count the number of times a word appears in a range (like M9:S663), but sorting it by the month it appears (eg: january = 2, february = 56, march = 2000, etc.)

I managed to do this but there has to be a better way

=COUNTIFS(RNM.1;"PRUM Transcripcion";FechaComite;">=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";

FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";

FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"

I am trying to create a graph that is conditional on two different columns. The first column is a date column, the second column has various categories. I want to show how many times each category appears per month. This database is continually added to so I wanted the formula to reflect the entire column range.

For example, let say I have 5 categories (Grapes, Apples, Peach, Pear, Banana). Column A would show a date (in a M/D/Y format) and Column B would list the fruit type. I want to show how many Grapes were input in January, February, March, etc. and then move on to show how many apples in each month, and so on.

I have a single work book with 8 sheets (I am using Excel 2010 BTW) and I am trying to find a total of times a word appears across all the sheets in column "C"

I found this formula on another thread. =SUM(COUNTIF(INDIRECT("Sheet"&{1,2,3}&"!C1:C1000"),"="&H3)) with an example. I made the changes that I needed for my purposes

This worked but only after I renamed the sheets to Sheet1, Sheet2, etc.

Is there a way get the same results from the above formula if all the sheets are named after our reps? Example: sheet1 is named Dan, Sheet2 is Nick, etc?

I'd like to search for a specific value like (1) in an array of cells like (A:A). The result needs to be the average number of a different column (B:B) in the same row as the searched value (1). And the resulting number should be rounded up to the nearest 10.

Example below: (Find value = 1 in A:A) ... 1 is found 4 times.

A | B

1 | 295

3 | 123

1 | 400

5 | 425

1 | 354

1 | 400

In the example above there are 4 (1's) found. By adding all the values in column (B) of the same row, we get 295+400+354+400 = 1449, dividing that in 4, the average is 362.25, rounding that up to the nearest 10... THE RESULT I'M LOOKING FOR IS: 370
