# Count The Number Of Times Each Entered Name Appears

Feb 4, 2010
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 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 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.

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 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;"

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 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 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 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've tried everything I know (which isnt that much to be honest. lol). Ive tried the frequency formula but that doesn't work the way I want it - I think its probably the wrong formula to use. I've also tried a pivot table but they always vex me. If a pivot table IS the way to go, could someone talk me through it step by step? (*the wizard is just as confusing as doing it yourself I find) ....

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).

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.

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 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 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 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 am trying to extract the number of times a name appears on a certain range of cells on a worksheet, now I can get this to work, but I am sure there is a better way I just cant get it to work!

=SUM(COUNTIF(sales1!$B$8:$F$11,A18),COUNTIF(sales2!$B$8:$F$11,A18),COUNTIF(sales!$A$8:$B$11,A18))

I have only used 3 pf the worksheets, but in time there could be up to 30.

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 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 need a formula that will show the total number of times "text" is entered into a column and when sorted by year that would only show the total for that year. The COUNTIF formula i'm using only works for the total, not when sorted by year.

Attempting to do a countif as follows

Count the number of times that F2:F65536=Q1 where E2:E65536 also = N2.

So for a given row, the cell in col F needs to equal Q1 and the cell in col E needs to equal N2 for it to count.
