# Count Number Of Time A Text String Appears

May 25, 2007
I have a very large spreadsheet and want to count the number of times a particular text string shows up in a column. I can't use autofilter due to the 1000 limit.

Here's an example, Column C contains:

Dan Parker

John Doe

Dan Smith

Jill Smith

So if I search on *Dan*, the function should return a count of 2.

I've used COUNTIF before to return values when the whole cell = a certain value but in my case the cell may have 200 characters and I want to count based on a fuzzy search. I would like to do this in a function and not a macro.

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 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 trying to count the number of specific words contained in a specific cell. If my data were static, and the list of keywords was short, there are many solutions such as using multiple instances of the length function as proposed by @shg here.

Suppose I have the following sheet: (column C is what I am trying to achieve)

A

B

C

1

[Code]....

That is, C2 will tell that B2 contained 3 of the keywords (1X beautiful, 2X happy) and so on.

I want to count the number of times any given number appears either as a consecutive group or singularly.

To give you a context I monitor windturbines and for any given fault code I wish to count the number of events it occurs in a month. Now it could be for 1 hour then clear the next then back for 17 then claer again. That would be 2 events!

NB the data is in seperate coulumns per turbine.

I have a long list of terms, and I need to identify which of these terms appear in another body of text strings. Rather than searching for each individual term, is there a formula that check the terms for me automatically.

The terms will appear in the larger body of text, but they won't appear on their own, so they won't be perfect matches.

I've attached a sheet to try to illustrate the problem.

Term Checker.xls

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'm looking for a formula that can determine whether a given sub-string appears in a string. For example if cell A1 contains the string "bathing", and cell A2 contains the sub-string "bat", the formula in A3 would return "TRUE".

However, if the sub-string in A2 is changed to "cat", the result in A3 would be "FALSE". The formula would need to work with strings of different and unpredictable lengths.

I have values in A1 through A4.

I have a string of text in cell B1.

In C1, I need a formula that displays TRUE if any of the 4 numbers from A1 through A4 are contained within the text in B1. If not, FALSE will be displayed.

Been messing with SEARCH and FIND, but not getting it to work.... not sure if those are the functions I need.

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'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.

my worksheet has a range (AN2:AN10000), and I want to find the total number of occurrences that specific numbers occur.

Example:

I want to find out how many times in this range above the numbers from 11 to 15 occur (11,12,13,14 & 15).

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 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))

My Problem is I have a workbook with multiple sheets with a possibility of a number between 2 and 999 occurring. I am looking for a formula that can display a table on the "total" worksheet for every ID number that has been entered and the number of times the ID number is displayed.

I am trying to have my cell show a range of dates, like:

5/25/14 - 5-27/14

I'm trying to use a formula like:

=DATE(2012,5,9) & " - " & DATE(2012,5,9)+2

But when I do this it just appears as:

41038 - 41040

Is there any way to tell excel to format these as dates?

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 have a sheet which details specific card numbers in Column A, and the date and place of transaction in the Column B. This very long list contains multiple entries for each card number. What I would like to do is use Sheet2 to list each card number and the number of times it appears in the list.

I have thousands of timestamps that have a start & end date and time in 2 separate columns. (one named start and one named end...)

I also have numerous set time periods that i'm interested in.. (about a dozen or so)

for example 01/01/2008 - 05/01/2008, 07:30:00 - 10:00:00

What i need is to be able to count the number of times the full time period i am interested (07:30:00 - 10:00:00) in falls in between the thousands of start and end timestamps i have. The time periods must also fall within the date range specifed.

So if my timestamps were

Start: 01/01/2008 06:30:00 & End: 02/01/2008 11:00:00, based on the set time period above, there would be a count of 2

and if my timestamps were

Start: 01/01/2008 07:05:00 & End: 02/01/2008 09:00:00 there would be a count of zero as there is not a full uninterupted timeperiod 07:00:00 - 10:00:00 between these timestamps.

and if my timestamps were:

Start 01/01/2007 07:00:00 & End 02/01/2007 10:00:00 the count would be zer as this is a year early!

I have a mapping program that uploads data with the date and time but when it exports it the time is converted to just a number string, e.g. 15:12:37 becomes 151237000. Is there way to eliminate the last three zeros and insert a ":" between the second and third, and fourth and fifth characters?

create a function that counts only the number of rows in a range which contain less than 5 instances of the string "VAC". So if they have less than 5 cells in the row that contain "VAC" count + 1.

I have uploaded my spreadsheet.

I have a column of text strings on Sheet1, Column A, which I need to check for the presence of keywords listed on Sheet2, Column A

So if any word from the keyword list on Sheet2, Column A is found in, say, cell A2 of Sheet1, the cell to its right (B1) should have a formula to display the count of keywords found in A2. I also would like to see each keyword identified either through a highlight or a list. I need the formula to NOT be case sensitive and the match does not have to be for whole words).

I am trying to find a formula that will count the number of unique entries there. I have tried the solutions posted on various websites to no avail (most recently:

Code:

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(MATCH(A1:A10,A1:A10,0),MATCH(A1:A10,A1:A10,0))>0,1))

).

The answer should be 4,457.
