Count The Number Of Times Each Entered Name Appears

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

Count How Many Times Appears Number 2 In A Box
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.

Count The Number Of Times A Particular Staff Name Appears
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?

Formula To Count The Number Of Times “closed” Appears Between Particular Dates
I am using this formula to count the number of times “closed” appears between
particular dates:


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

(CS_Ticket_Report_Dump!G$1:G$50000="In Progress")*
(CS_Ticket_Report_Dump!G$1:G$50000="Not Started")*

Count Up How Many Times A Particular Phrase Within A Text String Appears
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.

Counting The Number Of Times A Multi Digit Number 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) ....

Counting The Number Of Times A Date Appears In A List
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.

Count Number Of Time A Text String Appears
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.

Matching A Value That Appears Multiple Times
I have 2 columns with data in them, basically representing a gaussian distribution. Column A has the "X-axis" values and so is uniformly ascending with no duplicates. Column B has the "Y-axis" values and increases up to a maximum and then decreases again (this is data from an instrument and so its not completely smooth but is close). An example is below.

0 4
1 8
2 16
3 27
4 50
5 27
6 16
7 8
8 4

What I would like to do is get the 2 Column A values where the corresponding column B value is half of the max (in the case above, 25 is not available so the closest is 27). I am trying to calculate the difference between these values, so in the example, I would have 5-3. Is there a way to do this?

Count Number Of Times Specific Intervals Occur Between Relevant Values
I will say exactly what i want.

I want to keep statistics of roulette.

More specifically, i want to count how many times a dozen lates to come.

The range from 1-12 is 1st dozen, from 13-24 is the 2nd and 25-36 is the 3rd.

I want to count among these numbers, how many times one of three dozens appear every 1 time, how many times appears every 2 times, .... until 20 times.

For example: I have put in a column 500 numbers from 0 to 36.

The output must be like this:

1st Dozen: Every 1 time: x
Every 2 times: n
Every 20 times: m

The same for 2nd and 3rd dozen.

Use Filter To See How Many Times It Was Entered
I brought you an excel spreadsheet with the problem. I need to see if the Invoice number is repeated, so we use Filter to see how many times it was entered. Somehow there are certain invoices # that are in the spreadsheet but when you look for them at the displayed list from the filter, they are not there. I though it was from certain line but I was wrong. For example if you search the invoice # 317403, it is at the column F row 1131, but if you display the Filter, you won't see it.

Counting Formula (compare Values In 2 Separate Columns To See How Many Times The Same Value Appears In Both Columns)
I'm trying to compare values in 2 separate columns to see how many times the same value appears in both columns. Ideally I would be able to insert a range function to compare the values in the column "ID 1" against the values in column "ID 2" and return the count of times that a value appears in both columns. For example 2122, 1112 and 1718 appear in both columns and I would like the formula to return a count of 3.

ID 1ID 2

In my actual project I'm comparing 2 columns in the same worksheet. The column are column B with data in cells B2:B10266 against column C with data in cells C2:C18560.

Count Times Between 2 Specified Times
I thought I found a formula that would work, but it's not working. Each month I have to count the number of service tickets that have arrived between certain time ranges. They want to gauge during what times we seem to get the biggest batch of service requests.

6 am to 10 am
10 am to 5 pm
5 pm to 6 pm
6 pm to 6 am

The format of the cells are:

1:21:19 AM
1:28:08 AM
1:35:48 AM
1:49:19 AM
2:17:02 AM
7:14:38 AM
7:29:12 AM
8:08:28 AM
8:51:48 AM
8:54:19 AM

The formula I tried for 10 am to 5 pm: =COUNTIF(B2:B677,">="&TIME(10,0,0))-COUNTIF(B2:B677,">"&TIME(17,0,0))

It gives a result of 676, and I know from manually counting that there is only 327 cells that have a time between 10 am and 5 pm.

Data Count How Many Times Each Value Occurs
I have a list of data, integer values ranging from 0 to 36. Imagine a Roulette wheel. The list is long, with over one hundred data points. I would like to view the first 14 data points, and count how many times each value occurs. How many 0's? How many 1's? How many 2's?...How many 36's?

Obviously, many values will have 0 occurrences. Most will have 1 occurrence, some 2, and maybe one or two will have 3 occurrences. I doubt we will see a value with 4 or more occurrences, but it is possible. With this accomplished, I will then note the results. So, that accomplishes the first 14 data points, call them 1-14.

Then, I want to move down the list 1 data point, and repeat the process. So, here I am looking at data points 2-15. Basically, it's the same set of data, with the first point missing, and a new point added on. I will then note the results. I want to continue doing this until the last 14 are viewed.

Display Alert When A Number In Column Has Already Been Entered
My colleague in accounts has a sheet that lists all the invoices and values and other 'accounts department things' that I know little about.

Anyway, she has to manually input all the invoices she receives onto this excel document but sometime receives duplicate invoices (& inputs them twice be accident).

Is it possible for someone with macro skills to create a macro to run in a worksheet so that if she enters a number in a given column more than once an alert box appears to tell her. I've summarised the 'rules' below*

*Can is be written so that I can edit which column the alert is based on?

[In (for example) column F is a list of invoice numbers - all unique]

If user types a number in column F that matches a number that already exists, show alert box "THERE APPEARS TO BE A DUPLICATE ENTRY IN COLUMN F"


Any further clarification, let me know i'll try to post a blank sheet if my boss lets me.

Lookup: Picks Up If A Variation Number Has Been Entered
I have been working on a spreadsheet with 3 sheets and have done everything except the last function which I just can't work out. Data is entered on the first sheet in a list with an item number, description, dates etc and then finally, if they are a certain type of item, a variation, a 'variation number' in a column.

The next sheet is then called 'variations' and here starts my problem. I want to have a formula that picks up if a variation number has been entered on sheet one in the 'variation number' column and if so, add that item into this sheet, in order.

So to summarise, I need sheet 2 to search on sheet 1 in a specific column for numbers 1-30(ish) for a series of items. I then need sheet 2 to list each of these in order, copying over each item that goes with the number from sheet 1 in the same format.

Variable Data Dependant On Number Entered

Cell 1 equals a number
Cell 2 is the number entered into cell one times(X) 35 up until the number 6 is entered. Any number above 6 is Times 50. So. 1-6 is times(X) 35 while 6+ is Times(X) 50.

I am. Here's another example:

A salesperson gets a commission of $35 for each widget sold up to the first 6 widgets. If he sells more than six widgets, he gets paid $35 for the first 6 and $50 for anthing over 6.

The sales person will enter the number of widgets sold into a cell and the formula should do the rest.

I have been stuck on this for months.
