Trying To Count Number Of Occurrences Based On Content Of Two Other Columns

Jan 30, 2014

I am working on a spreadsheet that will provide count of types of complaints for particular areas over a running time span. I have tried a multitude of formulas but not sure how to write any of them correctly. What I am trying to do is generate a count of area type by whether it is formal or informal. (i.e. I want to know if there are x formal finish issues vs. y informal finish issues and so on.) This information will get charted and be kept "real-time" user input.

Look at 2 columns and assess if certain criteria and then count the number of these certain criteria. I give an example below:

Column 1: Has a drop down box of possibilities from: "Red", "Amber", "Green", N/A

Column 2: Has a drop down box of possible choices of: "Significant", "Other".

What I would like to do is have a formula which will count the number of times you have "Red and Significant", "Red and Other", "Amber and Significant", "Amber and Other", "Green and Significant", "Green and Other" and "N/A and Significant" and "N/A and Other".

I have been trying the whole day to create a formula to solve this but I just can't get it. To make it simple, let's say I have column A filled with different people names, column B filled with Level of Complexity and column C with the Activity (work task) title. This table is fed dynamically, so the number of rows can vary from 2 to 2000.

What I want to do is count how many times a single name appears related to the same complexity, so I can tell how many "simple, medium or complex" tasks each person has in their work queue.

A simple table example would be: colA colB colC Dan Complex Build House Dan Complex Build Shopping center Dan Simple Take dog to walk Jose Simple Clean desk Maria Medium Paint office roof

Then, on another cell I'd like to have a formula automatically telling me that Dan has 2 Complex tasks and 1 Simple, and so on - considering number rows is not a fixed number. What I have so far is this: =SUMPRODUCT((Data!$I$2:$I$457="Dan")*(Data!$L$2:$L$457="Complex")) But I need to tell a specific last row, and if the data worksheet gets updated with less data (say 450 rows) the formula breaks...

I get this work a lot and am looking for a much more effective way of working the dataset,

I have numbers like 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and so on....... These come under criteria like (1) = 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and so on.....

I am look for an automated way of doing a count of any number that falls under this criteria, so I want to count based on criteria (1) it would count all 1.1,1.2,1.3 and so on as one count.

I am attaching a sample document to see how it is laid out. [URL] .....

I have a somewhat large spreadsheet that is imported from an AS/400 database which shows the number of times something is being used. It lists the object in a row for each use. For instance, if the object is being used 4 times, there would be four rows of this object's name as well as a 0, 1, 2, 3 next to the correct row. Where it is being used is listed in the H Column.

I'm just trying to count the number of times each object is used and where it is used and list it out in another worksheet. Like this:

Object 1, 4 uses, Place 1 2 3 and 4.

Can someone point me in the right direction in terms of where to start with this? I don't mind giving it a shot in terms of the coding but I'm somewhat at a loss in terms of the general "how to".

In a datafile I have one column containing a trip 'origin' and a second column contains 'destinations'. I want to count how many times each trip occurs (so the same origin/destination pair). This is doable using COUNTIFS but unfortunately respondents did not provide consequent origins and destinations. I encountered the following formulations

Since the format is different among and within respondents functions containing LEFT, RIGHT, MID are not useful (at least, my trials did fail). I found a VBA-script for a FUZZYVLOOKUP which sounded promising. Unfortunately the data is stored on a remote PC without VBA on it.

Is there a way to count the occurrences of trips given the circumstances?

I have an excel spreadsheet to record employee holiday and sickness figures.

It is set on as a grid e.g. column A stores all the dates and then employee names are used as column header.

One of the triggers I need to use is where, an employee has been absent 28 consecutive days. When an employee is absent I simply enter 'ABSENT' against there name.

Countif will count the number of time absent appears in the column however I need it to only recognise it if it is only 28 days in a row.

What I want is in column B to give the sequential count that each number is for that number. In other words in row one the number 4 appears for the first time and so the sequence number is 1. It next appears in row 4, so the sequence number there is 2, and for row 6, it is 3.

The completed table will look like this:

A B 4 1 3 1 5 1 4 2 3 2 4 3

Any formula for the cells in column B? My actual list is about 5,000 lines and so I need a formula that is not slow.

In need checking if a particular ID number is repeated more than once in column B. I need to write a formula in each cells of "No.of Repetition" column or Column C to check if respective ID number in column B is repeated more than once and display the count or display a condition true or false.

I am working on a spreadsheet that tracks employee attendence and I am hoping there is a formula that can count the number of occurrences (see below) not the number of incidents (total number of times it comes up).

I am trying to find out if Sumproduct or Countif will provide me the answer but in vain. In the example of the 2 columns of data, how do I find out the number of one-time (or unique) combined occurences for data in column A and B? In my example the answer should be 5. I do not how to proceed with my Sumproduct formula which gives error. =SUMPRODUCT(($A$1:$A$17="A122")*$B$1:$B$17)

How do I create a code that record on row 1012, starting with column N, will count the number of rows between each "0" record in the range F7:F106. Perform the same function for number "0" in the range G7:G106 and recording in N1013.

Perform the same function for number "0" in the range H7:H106 and recording in N1014. Perform the same function for number "0" in the range F7:H106 and recording in N1015.

I'm trying to count the number of occurrences where two conditions in a table are true.

I have a table that has two columns for ratings; impact and probability. Each can be scored 1-5 This creates a matrix table of possible scores from 1 - 25 (image attached)

I want to COUNT the number of items in each of the boxes (not the total score). For example, how many are Impact 5 and Probability 5 (25 total); how many are Impact 4 and Probability 2 (8 total), and so on. Basically a count of the each of the intersections in the matrix.

Something like "Countif Impact is 5 AND Probability is 5"

Is it possible to count something once, checking for multiple conditions?

I have a very large range of text; g2:g23000. I am trying to find the number of times ABC shows up in this range and provide a count. The cells contain all bits of information, but i am only looking for ABC.

I have found ways to count cells but what I am trying to do is in column F I have a list of meeting topics, and sometimes these repeat in a year. in my drop down menu I have all of them listed however my supervisor wants me to add a count after the meeting number in the 1_1X format where x is the number of times a topic has been used.

The output will be added to my macro here

Code:

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)

Dim y As String Dim z As String Dim b as Integer

If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If Intersect(Target, Range("MEETINGNUMBER")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub

I have data arranged in a worksheet (see attachment) that has hours of work broken down by day. What I need is a formula that will find the number of times a record occurred in Column F that is greater than or equal to 12 hours each day. So for March 1st there would be 9 times. I can do that now with no problem using "=COUNTIF(F4:F14,">=12")" However, the real thing that I need is how many days of each month were there only 1 count (of 12 hours or more). So it needs to look at the range of data that goes from 3/1/13 to 3/31/13 and find the total number of days that had 1 count (of 12 hours or more) each day and return the number of days it found.

In Column A I have the list of strings that I need to search. I want to count the number of occurrences of these strings inside these two text files: Sample1.txt and Sample2.txt. For example I have the string "DOG". I want to search and count the number of times this string appeared in Sample1.txt, and Sample2.txt

I have my workbook set up so that one worksheet contains the names of all my departments/sections listed with their 3 letter code (this can be anything from AAA-ZZZ, e.g 'FYH', 'JWK' or 'KZA' are all valid) in Column F. I then have Columns H, I, J & K blank and require them to be auto-filling based on data from 4 other worksheets - i'll detail what i need below, but Column H needs to be filled based on what it finds in worksheet 'Data 1', Column I should be filled based on what it finds in worksheet 'Data 2' etc. etc. I have four further worksheets that contain data based on the types of assets owned by the department/section, these are 'Data 1', 'Data 2', 'Data 3' and 'Data 4' and I use these as described above, with Column H referring only to 'Data 1', Column I only to 'Data 2', Column J only to 'Data 3' and Column K only to 'Data 4'.

What i need then, is a VBA that will take the value of a cell in column F on my main worksheet (called 'main') and then count the number of occurences of that value in Coulumn A on another worksheet and place the number of occurences into Column H, I, J or K based on which sheet it's checking.

For example, Cell 'F2' on my main worksheet contains the value "ABC". I need to take "ABC" and search Column A of worksheet "Data 1" to find how many time it occurs, placing the result into Column H of worksheet 'Main', I then need the same value to be counted in Column A of 'Data 2' and its result placed into Column I on 'Main', and again for Column A of 'Data 3' with the result being put into Column J of 'Main', and finally Column A of 'Data 4' to be checked and that result placed into Column K on 'Main'.

does this seem too much of a task for VBA? or am i best doing each column separately with a CountIf or Array formula?? Not sure whether a COUNTIF or Array formula will do the job.

I've got two columns, one with policy numbers, the other with error codes.

A policy could be in the list more than once, so I'm counting the number of unique policy numbers with the function

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(A10:F10000,A10:A10000)>0,1))

I want to count the number of errors that are NOT code 00 or code 21. Because the error codes are saved as text, I'm counting the number of errors with

The problem is that since a policy number could be listed twice, when I count the errors, I might be counting the same policy as an error twice. This means that I could feasibly end up with more errors than I have unique policies, which doesn't work.

What I'd like to do is only count the number of errors that have unique policy numbers. That is, I only want to count an error the first time it is in the list, based off it's policy number. Is that possible?

I am trying to count the number of unique entries in a sheet, that also satisfy 2 other conditions.

I've attached an example sheet : Example email report.xlsx

The result I need is: The number of unique values in column E, that also have NULL in column G and NULL in column I.

So, in the example, the result would be 7.

I know I can do this by conditional formatting and filtering, but would prefer a formula, and perhaps also a macro that I could apply as the number of rows in each sheet is up to 20000, and each month's sheet will be a different size.

I've been desperately trying to figure out a formula that allows me to count the number of rows in a column that have different values, but that only counts those rows in which other conditions have been met. Probably sounds a little confusing, which is why I'll illustrate it with a screenshot:

The file contains a listing of major executives of a variety of different firms in different years from 1992 onwards. In the screenshot for example, you see the executives of AAR Corp from 1992 to 1997. Since my file however consists of 240,000 rows, there's a number of c. 2400 firms with their executives over a time period of 20 years each. Since not necessarily all executives remain with their companies for the rest of their lives, some executives show up for a number of different firms in my sample.

I want to determine at how many firms each executive worked within his current industry up to the respective year, based on the information of the 2400 companies and executive data over 20 years. The current industry is classified by 1 digit SIC codes (column U) and each firm has an individual firm identifier which is the CUSIP in column S.

For example, when applying this to the first row in the screenshot (Ira Eichner), I would need a formula that counts the number of different CUSIPs (thus firms), given that the EXECID (executive ID, identifier for each executive; column I) equals 9248, the 1 digit SIC code (column U) equals 5, and the Year (column J) is below 1992.

I have a questioner in a excel spreadsheet. Column C have yes or no answers. If answer yes is implied then I want the number 2 to appear in Column F of no is implied then the number 3 will appear. I am having trouble writing the language for this.

Formula/macro/etc that would enable me to have content of a cell changed based on the content of another cell in the same row.

Example: cell in column D says "PSA" - so I would need the cell in column H for that same row to read "Radio"

I would need an entire sheet scanned to review for these occurrences and make the appropriate changes. I also would need the formula to be inclusive enough to scan for variations in column D cell content (PSA 1, PSA 2, etc).
