Sum Last 5 Entries From Range

I have a row of golf scores "I3:X3" they either have a number value or "DNP".

I want to SUM only the last five number values and exclude the rest. The list will get a new entry every week. ie I want to SUM the last 5 most recent scores. There may be 15 or 16 scores or only 3, but I want the last 5 (or less) most recent.

Prevent Duplicate Entries In Range
Option Explicit
Dim myCount As Byte
Dim myColumn As String
Dim myRow As Long
Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
myCount = 0
If Range("B" & myRow).Value <> "" Then myCount = myCount + 1
If Range("C" & myRow).Value <> "" Then myCount = myCount + 1
If Range("D" & myRow).Value <> "" Then myCount = myCount + 1
If Range("E" & myRow).Value <> "" Then myCount = myCount + 1
If myCount > 1 Then....................

The above code pops up the message box when a second entry is made within the specified range, but OK button does not function, contents are not cleared, and Excel locks up.

Delete Entries In A Range That Equal 0.0000%
I have a very big range of data from B4, to a variable other end from which I would like to delete all entries equal to 0.0000 leaving just those with an entered value.

I guess it's just an if question cycling through the rows and columns? Slight complication is it's on the 3rd sheet of a Workbook, as set out in the sample file.

After this manipulation has been done, I then wish to copy the data from the range B4: end of data into the same cells in the output sheet.

Loop For Removing Double Entries In A Range
I´working on an excel sheet where i´m copying a range to another place. So far so good. Then I want to remove all double entries for each rows in the new range. I managed to get a code working for one row. When I want to loop it for all the rows in the copied range, I get a an error popoing up when the loop starts working on the second row. Error 457: "This is already associated with an element of this collection" The line creating this error is coll.Add cell.Value, CStr(cell.Value)

Sub Sortere_StederBeta()
Dim coll As New Collection
Dim lcount As Long
Dim cell As Range
On Error Resume Next
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues
For i = 36 To 65 Step 1
Range(Cells(i, 2), Cells(i, 22)).Select
Set coll = Nothing........................

The problem seems to come from the fact that the Coll (New Collection) is not reseting for the next loop. I tried to set the Coll to Nothing but doesn´t have any effect.

Count Unique Entries Within Variable Date Range
Using the DCOUNT function is generally a straight forward proposition but I'm not getting the expected results and would like for someone to take a look and help me understand why.

Goal: create a count of unique entries within a defined variable date range

I have a data table with duplicate values and need to count unique entries, the result of which will be used in a calculation. Due to a requirement to track the counts in a rolling 30-day period, the flexibility of daily selecting the date ranges is a necessity, which is why I chose to use DCOUNT and feed dates into the criteria cells.

I've been attempting to use the DCOUNT function but I'm not getting the correct result.
Oddly, after duplicating the table and formula on the "Count Repeated Items Once" page, even those results are incorrect.

It seems, too, that COUNTIF does not like (accept) dynamic named ranges. Hard coding the range into the formula yields a result of TRUE, but using a dynamic named range gives FALSE. Anyone else experience this and is there a work around (that is, if I have not erred in its use)?

Count Unique Entries Within Variable Date Range ..
I've been struggling for hours on what should be a simple formula. I have 6 columns containing various dates. On each row I want to count of the 6 columns how many dates were unique and after 3/15/09. I've been using the following formula however it still counts a cell even if it's prior to 3/15/09. =SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(A1:F1,A1:F1)>3/15/2009,1,0)). I've attached a sample file for reference.

Validate Cell Entries To Named Range List
I have been trying to figure out how to use a named range (on another sheet) to validate the user entered data in a specific column. All my attempts at utilizing worksheet_change event have ended in errors. I've created a simple workbook that shows what I'm trying to do and have attached it to this message. The 'Sample (Data)' worksheet has the data table that would be completed by the user. On the 'Validation' worksheet I have named the range to be used to validate the data as 'rngVal'. So when something is entered under the 'Expense Type' heading, the code would verify that the value entered was contained in the 'myVal' validation list. If it was not present in the list, a msgbox would instruct you to try again. After stealing bits of knowledge and code from many of the posts on this site I cobbled together the following (which results in an error at the 'set rngFind' line):

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rngFind As Range
'Set Target = Cells(ActiveCell.Row, ActiveCell.Column)
Set rngFind = Range("rngVal"). Find(Target.Value)
'If data in column C changes, do the following
If Target.Column = 3 Then
'If the value is found on the validation list, do nothing.
If rngFind Is Nothing Then
MsgBox "You must enter one of the following in this cell:"
With Application
.EnableEvents = False
.EnableEvents = True
End With
End If
End If
End Sub

Remove Entries In Col A That Appear In Col C
Hello all, I was wondering if anyone would be able to help with a macro or even formula that would remove the entries in Col A that appear in Col C. Attached is an example with dummy data, Col D is how the list should be. If a number appears in A but not C then all instances of it should be kept, conversely if it is in C but not A then it does not need to be kept. Most importantly I need to be able to delete those that appear in both by the same number of times they appear in C.

Hope this all makes sense. Please feel free to ask if it is not clear.

How Many Different Entries For A Certain Criteria
I have been searching a bit in a lot of the already posted threads but without any luck on my problem.

Normaly in excel you always want to count how many entries for a certain criteria.

Now I just want to know how many different entries for a certain criteria.


in column A1:A10 I have the value "S" -> group

in column B1:B4 I have the value "40" -> material number
in column B5:B8 I have the value "60" -> material number
in column B9:B10 I have the value "70" -> material number

So for the group "S" it is listet with total 3 different "material number" (40,60,70)

So my result should be = 3

how should the formula be on counting for the group "S" how many different values are in a defined area (e.g. B1:B10)

I have tried with sumproduct,

Flagging Same Entries
If I have a multiple entry of a product with the same end date against a customer number how could I flag this as something I need to look at?

Cust number Product Number Expired Date
1000018000 31/12/2006
1000018000 31/12/2006
1000018001 31/12/2006
1001020010 31/12/2006
1021518000 31/12/2006

So in this case the first two would be flag with say “yes” and the others “no” as the customer number, product number and expire date don’t match.

Conditional Entries
I'm trying to evaluate the last 8 entries of a particular column of data that I regularly update (K4:K5000). This data is filled with numbers ranging from about -50 to 50 and will occassionally have a blank entry.

I'd like to evaluate these last 8 entries using a couple of different conditions.

#1 - In column D4:D5000, I have three entry values - X, Y, or Z. It will never be blank. I would like for the Excel to automatically review the last 8 entries of columns K and D and do two things...

a. provide an output of a count of how many X, Y and Z there are for the last 8 entries (format: 4-3-1)

b. provide an output of an average of the values of K for each of X, Y, and Z... (i.e., avg of X = 4.4; avg of Y = 2.1; avg of Z = 10.7)

#2 - Next, I would like to add a third column to the mix (Column C4:C5000 with entries >0 and 0, Y>0, Z>0 there are for the last 8 entries (format: 4-3-1)

b. provide an output of an average of the values of K for each of X>0, Y>0, and Z>0 (i.e., avg of X>0 = 9.4, etc.)

Copy Over Todays Entries
First id like to start by explaining that the original source of the code here was given to me by JBeaucaire, from another thread(thanks again). I adpated the last script he wrote to work on this new spreadsheet im trying to automate a little but I need some additional help. Right now as is, I plan to run the report on a weekly basis and having the reps save a new file for the end of each week. Ideally I would have an "update" macro where it would check the first sheet called ALL for any new new entries.

Right now in the dummy sheet the group numbers are all the same and the Names are all the same. In a real world scenario they would almost all be diffrent. I say almost because in some cases a Customer can be Termed, reinstated and Renewed all in the same month. So on the main work sheet where the data entry occurs could have duplicate group numbers. Group names often has dupes because of the way group #'s are attached. So what im looking for is some instruction on how I can have this update just the new days data. Heres the code I have so far for break out the data. Attached is the dummy sheet.

Find New And Existing Entries
I have a list of new payments received (sheet 2) along with their agreement numbers which I want to match to the list I had last month (sheet 1) to see which agreements are still paying, which have stopped and if there are any new ones.

The problem is that the the list of new payments received shows the agreement numbers with random prefixes and suffixes so my lookup returns #N/A

Sheet 1 - 24020130
Sheet 2 = 24020130FLE

My basic thinking (and I mean basic) is to do an edit/replace on sheet 2 entries and replace the FLE's with with nothing thus removing them completely then running the lookup but that doesn't tell me which are new payments received.

Then I could make sheet 1 text blue, sheet 2 text red, combine them, re-sort and manually go through the list but I'm hoping there's a sexy formula just waiting to be unleashed.

I"ll bet there's a more elegant way to write this maybe using a Collection or a Dictionary.

Set MP1_Rnge = Range("A1:A100")
For Each Cell In MP1_Rnge
If Not IsEmpty(Cell) Then

For instance, move one cell to the right or move one cell down and one to the left.

Using Mutiple Entries In A Calculation
I'm trying to create a workbook that will calculate times. Currently I have a worksheet that has, for example Incident #1, Date/Time In, and Date/Time Out. At the end of the row it will calculate total time in hours.

I need to create a second worksheet that will have Incident # to correspond to the incident # on Sheet1, with Date/Time In and Out. However, on this sheet there could be more than one occurance of Incident#1, and multiple times in an out. That total will be deducted from the total of incident#1 on Sheet1.

The easiest way to explain this would be...say for the sake of argument Sheet1 calculates the duration of a vacation in hours (lets say 168 hours). Sheet2 will calculate how much of that time was spent doing business (lets say 2 hours on day1, 3 hours on day 4). In the end I want to subtract 5 hours from 168 hours giving me 163 actual vacation hours.

My problem is, I don't know how to go about using the values in multiple rows in Sheet2 that correspond to the row in Sheet1.

Verifying Text Entries
I was given two files from an old DOS pos system to make a current mailing list with.

The first file is a list of all the customers from this company(full list), the 2nd is all the customers active within the previous year(active list). I don't have any access to any information other than what is on the 2 lists I was given and I need to use the active list to make sure that only the current customers get sent anything. Not normally a big issue, if it weren't how these lists were formatted when given to me. The full list is a mailing list that was formatted to run labels from a dot matrix printer and imports to excel in the following manner,

John & Jane Doe
1234 NE Road St
Someplace, OR 97056

The active list is formatted like:

Doe | John & Jane

Because there is no address information on the active list I can't just generate a full mailing list. I am able to seperate the values from the full list by referencing cells onto another worksheet (it seperates as 'name' 'address' 'city/state/zip') but I need to find a true/false formula, or something similar, that will tell me which names on the full list are also on the active list. I can do it the other way around, and check to see which names from the active list are on the full list (all of them) but because of how the values are seperated on each worksheet I can't seem to figure out how to make this work.

Count By Unique Entries
I am hoping this can be done with formulae. Starting at C7 and continuing down the C column there is a list of names which could potentially run from C7 to C5000. This list of names will contain duplicates. For each name there is a corresponding 'reason' in the F column which will contain the word 'Truancy' or 'Late'.

I need a formula that can count the number of UNIQUE names in the C column which correspond to the word 'Truancy' or 'Late' in the E column.

An example,

C7 ...........................E7
John Potts.................Truancy 2
Matt Jones................Truancy 10
John Potts.................Truancy 4
Matt Jones ...............Late AM
Pete Burns................Late PM
Pete Burns ...............Late Both
Steve Lopez..............Truancy 6

Count of unique names with the word Truancy in the corresponding E column = 3 [John Potts has 2 instances of the word truancy in column E but this is only counted once]

Count of unique name with the Word Late in the corresponding E column = 2 [Pete Burns has 2 instances of the word late in the E column but this is only counted once].

I have also included a sample workbook.

That by its self might not be so hard, but I want to take those 10 rows (once identified) and take the sum of column G and divide by the sum of column F for those rows only.

I already have a concatenate cell in the 'All Games' sheet for each row that I use to as a link of sorts to get data from column F and G onto the 'Spring 2009' sheet. The way I have the concatenate set up, I can manually sort by it and get the 'latest 10' values I need, but I need to get it all into a formula to place on the 'Spring 2009' sheet without the manual sort.
