Unique Trace Code (multiple Column Criteria)

Aug 20, 2013

I have a challenge I haven't quite been able to figure out:

I need a 6 digit trace code to be automatically generated for each job based on the date, the product type and the job number.

The first 2 digits on the trace-code are alphanumeric and the sequence for each job is AA, AB, AC etc.

The last 4 digits are a date code (YYWW.... two digits for the year and two digits for the week number).

The criteria is that multiple jobs of the same product type within the same work week must not have identical trace codes. So Job 1 gets "AA" plus the date code... Job 2 gets "AB" plus the date code, etc. If Job 3 is done in the next work week, it cycles back to "AA" and gets the new date-code.

Generating the date-code was simple enough, but coming up with a function or rule to assign the two-digit alpha has been a challenge that I have not been able to beat.

Below is an example of how the Trace-code column should work....note that Trace code on one product type might be identical to the trace code on another product type.


Product type
Lot number
Trace code

Counting Unique Values From Column Meeting Multiple Criteria?

Jun 26, 2014

I am working on an attendance spreadsheet in Excel 2003 at work that will display data showing number of learners allocated to an activity, number unallocated, number attended, number not attended, number of acceptable reasons and number of unacceptable reasons by Block Letter. My problem is that for a number of reasons the same learner number is allocated to a number of activities each day. I need to know how many learners from each block have been allocated, not how many allocations each learner has from each Block.

I have tried different formulas, but fast running out of time

I have attached a modified sample from the main spreadsheet

I need : Cell H4 to calculate the number of unique values from Column C on Mon tab but only meeting the following criteria Mon!$N$3:$N$4000="AM", Mon!$O$3:$O$4000=D4, Mon!$B$3:$B$4000="mon1" I can then apply to the other rows.

Macro Code To Trace Dependents/Precedents

Jun 17, 2008

I would like to trace dependents of all cells <> "" in column A of a sheet "Tickmarks". If there is a cell in column A which has a value, but does not have a dependent I would like that value to be stored. When the trace dependents check is done for all the cells with values in column A, I would like to display a msgbox with all the cell values collected above.

Eventually, I will be trying to locate the cells with no dependents but with values in Column A and replace them with cells with dependents and change the dependent links to the updated cells.

I have attached an example.

Sub Trace_Dependents_Tickmark_Sheet()

Dim RowCounter As Integer
RowCounter = 3

'Select firsct cell with t/m & show dependents
Range("A" & RowCounter).ShowDependents

' Loop until RowCounter = 200
If Range("A" & RowCounter).Value = 0 Then
RowCounter = RowCounter + 1

Unique Count With Multiple Criteria

Jul 7, 2009

For example, each job has a specific ref number and within that job ref number there is a number of lines of data, some of which we ignore and some of which we include. Each job will have a planning time using an old methodology (Planning A), a planning time using a new methodology (Planning B) and an actual time. There are a few other variables too such as the category of work.

I am trying to count the number of each unique ref no. within the sub category of work I am looking at (there are circa 50 sub categories of work). Each ref no. will only have 1 combination of work cat and sub category.

Counting Unique Values With Multiple Criteria?

Aug 13, 2014

I am looking to count the unique amount of customers who are listed in column C based on the criteria that they purchased the product on the 1/08/2014 and that the product came from Department 3. The output I am looking for in this example would be 3. I can do it for this example but when I have 300 different customers it starts getting tricky and I'm a bit stumped on how to incorporate an array formula into a countifs() function or whether there is an alternative.

Date DepartmentCustomer
1/08/2014 3 A
1/08/2014 3 B
1/08/2014 2 C

4/08/2014 3 A

Match With Multiple Criteria To Dataset Of Unique Values?

Jul 8, 2013

In one sheet I'd like the user to select from 3 dropdown lists certain predefined values.

On the second sheet there is a long list of unique cells (one column, that can't be split into usefull columns with text to columns or something). I want to find the cell that holds the three text choices. These can be in different order to make things more complex. How do I create a search that finds that one match.

The user selects "AAA" and "DDD" and "FFF" from the dropdown lists

The formula should find that one cell that holds this value: "FFF JJJ GGG DDD CCC AAA". This is the only cell that holds all three chosen values in one text. In the end I would need to have the row number of that cell,

Count Unique Records With Criteria From Another Column

Feb 14, 2008

As the title says, I need to count the number of unique records (names) in column A, where column L is = to something specific (X,Y,Z,W, whatever) for some statistics im trying to report.

Please see the attached spreadsheet. For role X statistics, I need a count of the unique names from col A, where col L = X. Based on my sample spreadsheet, the number should be 2. For Role Y, it should be 3.

There is the potential for spaces in the rows, and no one will be 'cross role'

I've got a few different methods to just count unique values with specific criteria in the same column, but I just can't make anything work for specific criteria in another column.

Excel 2007 :: Create Dynamic And Unique Sublist Based On Multiple Criteria

Get All Unique Combinations From 6 Columns (multiple Rows) Into 7th Column

Jul 2, 2014

I have a table with 6 columns (A to F) and multiple rows each, with cells containing words. Taking the words in any one cell from each of the columns in order from A to F will form a complete sentence each time. I need a solution to display all unique possible combinations in column G.

The number of rows is different for each column. A successful result in column G has to include cells from all columns (A to F).

I searched this forum and found a few analogous questions/solutions, but nothing close enough for me to apply to my case. I tried using a concatenation formula, but I have to manually edit the formula in each cell to get all unique combinations (and that would mean thousands of times). If I just drag the formula down it will increment all cell rows instead of one cell's row at a time.

Here's an example : all possible unique combinations.jpg

Sheet 2 displays those records with adjacent cells for entering data. When data is entered, I need the system to go back to Sheet 1, find the entry that matches this one, and put an "x" in the Complete column.
