# Counting Differences Between Column A And B?

Feb 27, 2014

is there an IF formula to compare values in two columns, say Column A and Column B have "Action recommended" and column B has "Actual action taken", both columns should have the same texts, in cases where there is no similarity, the formula should count the cases.

## Counting Unique Differences Between Two Worksheets

Jun 18, 2008

=SUMPRODUCT(--(LEFT(Apr08WFA!\$A\$1:\$A\$4000,2)="zz"),--(TEXT(Apr08WFA!\$F\$1:\$F\$4000,"mmmyyyy")=TEXT(B6,"mmmyyyy")))+SUMPRODUCT(--(LEFT(Apr08WFA!\$A\$1:\$A\$4000,2)="zz"),--(TEXT(Apr08WFA!\$F\$1:\$F\$4000,"mmmyyyy")=TEXT(B7,"mmmyyyy")))

this counts the number of entries on sheet Apr08WFA when value in range F1 to F4000 is either apr2008 (cellB6) or mar2008 (cellB7).

this works in principle but does not catch all.

I want to amend the formula to catch new entries appearing on a sheet called May08WFA that were not on Apr08WFA but with the same condition of "zz".

So data on May08WFA will be compared against Apr08WFA and new entries counted.

## Picking Column A Values Based On Differences Between Members In Column C?

Jan 8, 2014

I have data like this,

Member
chr
location

web
1
50000

[Code]....

Now i want to select member column values based on the differences in values between members of location column should be 50000, it means if select web then my next selection should be SEB because next value (i.e web + 50000) is 100000 and it is matching to SEB in members column.

expected results
web
1
50000

[Code]....

## Highlight Differences Of Cells In Multi Column & Row Table

Mar 20, 2009

PART 1
- A record is created
- The record is modified once/several times
- Only the original record and the last modified record needs to be kept

PART 2
- The differences between the original and the last record need to be highlighted in the spreadsheet.
- This has to be repeated for a whole bunch of rows

Currently I am manually deleting the rows and eye-balling the changes. I'm using Excel 2002. I have ASAP Utitilities as well. Although macros are cool, I was hoping I could try with an Add-in or software.

## Stop Column B Counting Days From Today IF Column C Is Populated

Jan 5, 2012

I've created a very simple formula which counts the number of days from Today and excludes blanks.

I'm trying to set it up so the formula *stops* counting the days once a cell in column C is populated.

Formula so far...

Code:
=IF(A3="", "",A3 - TODAY())

It looks exactly like this this [URL] .....

## COUNTing Values In Column Two On Criteria In Column One

Feb 1, 2007

I have a workbook where I am trying to COUNT the values greater than zero in column "J" based on a selective criteria of column "B".

In other words, if the date in a column "B" cell (B3:B78) is greater than the date in A86, I want to count the number of cells whose corresponding value in the "J" column is greater than "0". And then I want to take this selective COUNT and divide it by a COUNT of all the cells in the range "J3:J78".

So, what I am trying to do is:

FORMULA /COUNT(J3:J78)

## Counting In A Column?

Jun 2, 2014

So I have an annoying dataset to work with. The first column contains ID#, string, string, string, ID#, string, string, string, string, ID#, string, and so on. It is basically a list of patient numbers with a list of their appointments listed underneath them. I need to find a way to count up the number of strings for each patient, like shown below:

Patient#
Count

101
2

The format isn't too important. The data I have is basically column A, and I want to create column B.

## Counting Text In A Column If

Dec 17, 2007

Im trying to find out a way of counting the contents of, say: column C where that contains text as long as column B = a variable

Basically column C contains the words Sale and Lead and i need a function that reads column B for examples of a user defined variable (1-4) and counts sale or lead in column C if this condition is satisfied.

like a sumif but capable of adding text (two cases of in this example but not really vital as the only things in column C would be sale, lead or left blank)?

## Counting Frequency Of Name In Column

Jan 9, 2013

I have a column of names and I want to find the frequency that each name occurs per row, but the cells have a string of text. For example:

Column A:
John Dimon, Matt Carpenter, James Chan, Gary Smith
Matt Carpenter, Leo Monroe, Craig Thomson
John Dimon, Matt Carpenter, Larry Barclay

I would like a way to count how many times each name occurs in the column. So John Dimon would be 2, Matt Carpenter would be 3. I tried countif but it doesn't seem to work with a string of text.

## Counting Several Dates In Column

I have a worksheet that has several dates in column D. I would like a formula to count the number of dates that are 7 days or less than the current date in F2.

## Counting Names In A Column

May 10, 2006

I have a list of 60,000 names in a spreadsheed, column A has the NAME, Column B the STREET NUMBER and Column C the STREET NAME. Heres a small sample.

CHALWIN E100733RD ST
JAQUE D J101263RD ST
JAQUE D J101263RD ST
JAQUE D J101263RD ST
JAQUE D J101263RD ST
JAQUE D J101263RD ST
BAXTER P M101593RD ST
BAXTER P M101593RD ST
MCLEOD E A101603RD ST
MCLEOD E A101603RD ST
MCLEOD E A101603RD ST

As you can see some of the names repeat, and that is exactly what I want. I want to write a formula in Column D that will indicate how many times each name appears so that it will show, for example, a "5" beside JAQUE D J" and a "2" beside "BAXTER P M".

I have tried using EXACT, MODE, IF ... COUNTIF wouldn't work because there will be some names that are duplicate but at different addresses, besides the range would be enormous.

## Counting Entried In Column

Aug 8, 2006

I tried using the following code to count the number of entries in a column (Column A, text entries) and then display it as a percentage of the total in a separate box. I just got the result "1".

Sub Count_Selection()
Range("a1").Activate
Dim cell As Object
Dim count As Integer
count = 0
For Each cell In Selection
count = count + 1
Next cell
Range("g1").Value = count
End Sub

## Counting Sequential Zeroes In Column

May 21, 2014

How do I go about having a formula which will return the number of times 0 is repeated in a column sequentially?

e.g.:

0
1
0
0
0
0
0
1
0
0
0

The idea being that after row 7 (there have been 5 consecutive zeroes), the count would reset when it hits a value greater than zero, and then count again once it hits a zero again.

Output for the example above should be 3.

## Counting Consecutive Numbers In A Column?

## Counting Unique Values In A Column?

Jan 17, 2008

How can I count the number of unique values in a column?

I have a spreadsheet that lists transactions that occurred over a one-year period (2007). I need to determine the number of days our facility was operational. No transactions on a particular date (25-Dec-07, for example) and the facility would be considered to have been closed on that date.

On the days that the facility was open, multiple transactions would have occurred on those open days and those multiple tranactions are all reflected in the worksheet.

So I need to count each occurrence of '01-Jan-07', '02-Jan-07', and so on.

## Counting The Number Of Used Rows In Column

## Counting Instance In Column - COUNTIF Not Working

Feb 24, 2014

Ok so I am trying to streamline the Shirt ordering process at my work. I have made a table with Employee names as Column A, then Row 1 is shirt sizes from small to XXXL. The Cell values are going to be the colors people want. I want to total the number of each size/color combination. But someone may want more than one of the same color. For instance you would enter "BK, BK" if you wanted 2 black shirts of that size. This is where the issue with COUNTIF comes in. If a cell has the same value twice, it only counts it as one because counts the cells with an instance of a value, not the actual count of instances. Is there a way to make COUNTIF or a better function for this?

## Counting A Column Based On Two Sets Of Criteria

## Counting Occurrences Based On Uniqueness Of Value In Another Column

Aug 9, 2007

I want to count the number of times a certain value is found in columnB, only for unique values in columnA.

I have made a simple example file, attached. Column B shows Status which can be Active, Current, Dormant. Column A holds Item names. I want to know how many Active Items I have, but an Item can appear more than once in ColA, so I want it only to include in the count the unique ColA values.

## Counting Number Of Unique Items In Column

Oct 10, 2008

I am trying to count the number of unique items in a single column (~5,000 rows of data). For example, I may have the following data

a1 = apples
a2 = pears
a3 = oranges
a4 = apples
a5 = apples
a6 = apples
a7 = pears

in this case number of uniques items is 3

Right now I am using a Pivot Table to figure out the number of unique items but I am sure there is an easier way to do this.

## Counting Items If They Match A Condition In Another Column

Apr 2, 2012

I need to be able to count items if they match a condition in another column, as below

A B
1 Apple Red
2 Apple Green
3 Apple Red
4 Pear Green
5 Apple Red
6 Pear Green
7 Pear Red
8 Apple Red

How can I count how many Red Apples there are. The answer should be 4 but when I use countifs I can either count the no of apples in Col. A or the no of colour Red in Col. B.

I have tried every combination of if, vlookup, and count that I can but keep getting errors or single col. counting.
