Counting Unique Occurrences
We've got a column of names. A single name might appear once or two hundred times. The column is over 25,000 lines long, so we don't want to have to count how many different users there are (besides the likelihood of doing it wrong!). Is there some way to make Excel count the number of unique entries in the list, ignoring multiple repetitions of the same name?

Counting Number Of Occurrences Of A Date
I am running Excel 2007 at work in compatibility mode. My company is in the process of switching to Excel 2007, but not everyone has it, so I save my files in Excel 97-2003 format, so they can be viewed by everyone.

Problem:
I am trying to count the number of occurrences of "dates" between a starting date and an ending date. (e.g., cells B16:B1000 contain dates when a test at work was performed. I want to count all tests that occurred between 12/30/2007 and 1/9/2007.) Please note that the dates cross the new year

I have searched this board, found a similar post, and tried the different formulas listed but get a result of "0" (zero). If I try the same formulas at home using Excel 2000, they work. The formula types I've tried include regular and array styles I am led to believe that this is either an Excel 2007 bug (bug??? - Nah, not from Microsoft!), or one of the cute changes between the new and old versions that I keep running across. The last possibility is that I am doing something wrong, which a smart betting man wouldn't rule out either!

Counting Occurrences Of Text String
I have a spreadsheet which consists of Sheet 1 and Sheet 2.

In Sheet 1, Column I there is a list of country names which indicate who visited our website at a certain time. So for example England may be listed multiple times.

In Sheet 2 I have a table showing January through to December in a column and the different country names across the top in one row.

I want the Table in Sheet 2 to count how many times England (for example) occurs in Column I and to indicate that as a numeric value.

Counting Multiple Occurrences With Various Arrays
what I'm looking at doing is counting the number of reccuring unauthorised absences in a list. We have the persons name in column B, the absence type in column C and the date in column E. Basically I need to send out an AWOL notice when 5 days of unauthorised absence for the person in column B has occurred, so I need some sort of indication that this has happened in order for me to stick some conditional formatting in there to flag it.

Counting Matching Occurrences From Multiple Columns
I have a sheet with data which is all sorted by columns.

What I want to be able to count the occurrence of an instance when 2 cells in the same row (but in different columns) match my given criteria.

Ive been using 'countif' to count the instances in a single column and I am now aware that this is about all it can be used for.

An example of my data is:

A B
1 a
1 a
1 c
2 d
2 c
3 b
3 b
3 c
3 d

What I want to be able to count for example is how many times '3' & 'b' occur on the same row (in this case the answer would be 2).

Im not very good with pivot tables and have tried but have not managed to find an answer. I really hope that someone can help as Ive been working on this probelm for days and quite frankly its doing my head in :-)

Counting Occurrences Based On Uniqueness Of Value In Another Column

Count Number Of Occurrences
I have a somewhat large spreadsheet that is imported from an AS/400 database which shows the number of times something is being used. It lists the object in a row for each use. For instance, if the object is being used 4 times, there would be four rows of this object's name as well as a 0, 1, 2, 3 next to the correct row. Where it is being used is listed in the H Column.

I'm just trying to count the number of times each object is used and where it is used and list it out in another worksheet. Like this:

Object 1, 4 uses, Place 1 2 3 and 4.

Can someone point me in the right direction in terms of where to start with this? I don't mind giving it a shot in terms of the coding but I'm somewhat at a loss in terms of the general "how to".

Unpredictability Random Occurrences Of The Same Variable
I am trying to find the best values which will reduce the unpredictability of a certain process. To do this I need to analyze random occurrences of the same variable when it is controlled by a constraint. I included a workbook with example calculations. As you will see, the values in Results column are controlled to some extent by the value in cell E2. When you press F9 a brand new sequence of results in calculated in column Results. I wonder if it is possible to make a macro which will store side-by-side ALL the 50 values generated in the Results column per one F9 press on a separate sheet (e.g. “output”) for, say, 100 or 500 computer-generated F9 button presses.

Count Occurrences Within Date Range
I need to count the number of occurrences of a range of dates in one column. These are not unique dates, but dates between two date periods i.e. number of dates falling between 02/07/07 and 09/07/07. I have tried using the COUNTIFS function and inserting the column range (e.g. B7-B57) and then searching for dates <=02/07/07. However, what I need is to search for the number of times any date in a given period occurs i.e. number of 03/07/07s in a period from 02/07/07 to 09/07/07.

Lookup & Return Multiple Occurrences
In Sheet1 are unique VM entries (Column A) which have a Group (Column B), Time (Column C) and a Reference (Column D) which can be same for other VM entries. In Sheet2 are the unique Reference Entries (Column A) which need Group (Column B) and Time (Column C) entries populated from Sheet 1. Multiple occureneces need to go in one cell, I realise this is not the best idea, but for this purpose they need to be and seperated by a comma or semi-colon.

In B2 I've used this formula:
=INDEX(Sheet1!A1:D11,MATCH(A2,Sheet1!D1:D11,0),2)
Which partly works, but only returns the first occurrence of H1 on Sheet1. I need all occurrences (i.e G1;G4;G8) returning for B2.

I can only think that some VBA script may be needed but I'm not really an expert in this area. In the full spreadsheet there are hundreds of rows and multiple entries, where Group and Time need to be populated on the second sheet

I've done the searches and not sure exactly how to go about it, it seems so easy but i'm getting tired of looking at this project.

Lookup All Occurrences & Return Results To 1 Cell
My task is that I have several documents exported in excel. The requirements in them were mapped to another document. The IDs were populated in a certain column but are now no longer needed. I have to convert those old Ids to the current ones. In my example I have populated Sheet one with the lookup table. In column A are the old IDs. In Column B are the new ones they map to. The old ones can map to several which is why there are more than one ID in some of the cells. In column D of Sheet 2 I have populated it with the old Ids. In Column A I'd like to have the lookup return the appropriate maps to the new Ids. For example for the first map in cell A2 it should return:

abc_18
abc_43
abc_6
abc_4
all in one cell.

Vlookup can return the first hit (abc_18 and abc_43 for cell D2), but ignores the other two IDs in cell D2. I was able to work around this combining the find, mid, and vlookup to return all values. The problem with that is that the formula gets monstrously big after just having it return 4. In the actual files it can be up to 30 IDs which would make that formula literally pages long since. I have pretty much no experience with macros, but it seems like the only solution since I have to send this off to various people so they can use it.

Formula To Count Occurrences Of Multiple Elements Within A String
I have a number of records that have in one cell a string of the form 1,2,3 etc (up to 10) representing conditions that have been met. There are a number of options available for producing reports on all of the other attributes in a record but now we wish to add this element as well.

The reports I can produce using VBA and the INSTR function, however on the summary page where, a total of all records matching available criteria is shown, depending upon drop down items being selected, I need to add this element to the equation as well. The existing conditions are counted using SUMPRODUCT and a combination of IF statements and work fine.

As there is an option to create a report for both AND and OR, e.g. if condition 1 and 2 and 3 apply include in the report, or if condition 1 or 2 or 3 apply include in the report

The conditions are selected using a check box and a drop down list to select the AND/OR condition.

I have been trying various combinations of database functions, countif, find and cannot get them to evaluate. I suspect that it may be beyond my reach to use a formula and I will need to use VBA with a Worksheet_Change macro to achieve what I want, or alternatively redesign the layout to store the conditions differently, however if anyone has any ideas for a formula I would much appreciate hearing from you.

A sample worksheet illustrates how the data is currently shown. The string in the record column is created using VBA and then inserted into the actual record.

Count The Percentage Of Occurrences Where Products Are Chosen Togather
What I have is a table (far larger than this example) which details a reference, and then and products under that unique reference. What I need to be able to do is count the percentage of occurrences where product 1 and 2 are chosen together and product 1 and 3 together and so on. So basically I need to be able to see which product options are the most popular choice as a bundle. but have no idea where to begin.

This is an example of my table, but mine has 16,000 rows, so not possible just to count myself.

Count Occurrences Based Condition In 2 Dynamic Columns
I have been trying the whole day to create a formula to solve this but I just can't get it. To make it simple, let's say I have column A filled with different people names, column B filled with Level of Complexity and column C with the Activity (work task) title. This table is fed dynamically, so the number of rows can vary from 2 to 2000.

What I want to do is count how many times a single name appears related to the same complexity, so I can tell how many "simple, medium or complex" tasks each person has in their work queue.

A simple table example would be:
colA colB colC
Dan Complex Build House
Dan Complex Build Shopping center
Dan Simple Take dog to walk
Jose Simple Clean desk
Maria Medium Paint office roof

Then, on another cell I'd like to have a formula automatically telling me that Dan has 2 Complex tasks and 1 Simple, and so on - considering number rows is not a fixed number. What I have so far is this: =SUMPRODUCT((Data!\$I\$2:\$I\$457="Dan")*(Data!\$L\$2:\$L\$457="Complex"))
But I need to tell a specific last row, and if the data worksheet gets updated with less data (say 450 rows) the formula breaks...

Lookup Query - Occurrences: Create Another Worksheet With The Months Of The Years Listed Down Column
I have a table that lists the months of the year down from cell A2:A13, and days of the week along row from cell B1:H1. The data in between (cell B2:H13) is pulled through from elsewhere in the workbook and is in number format.

What I basically want to do is create another worksheet with the months of the years listed down column A, and in column B, for each month, I want the first day of the week where the value in the original table is more than zero, and in column C the second day of the week where the value is more than zero. I really hope that makes sense, was quite difficult to explain!

Count The Number Of Occurrences Of A Number In A Range

Day ## Of ## Counting
I am looking for a formula that will count days in increments of 1 through 40. I need it to look like this: DAY 1 of 40

Whereas only the "1" counts up to 40 every 24 hours. And maybe a button to reset the counter back to "1" ...

Counting Unique ID's
I've got a list that's about 15,000 rows long. Column A has a date and column B has an alpha numeric ID. The list is sorted in order of oldest date at the top, most recent at the bottom. The range of dates is from 1/1/2007 through 3/23/2009. Both the same date and ID show up multiple time throughout the list.

I need to figure out how many unique ID's show up on the list in each given calendar month. I could manually break up the list into months, use an advanced filter and then run a count formula, but it seems like there must be an easier approach.

Sumproduct.... But Counting?
I have a working SUMPRODUCT forumla, which sums the numbers in column B that are between two dates (column A) that I specify.

Is there a simple way to turn this into a count? I thought maybe a COUNTIFS formula, but that can't get the count between the dates, as only one criteria is applied to each range.

Counting Formula
I have the following formula

=IF(B8>='Credit Details'!\$C\$12,IF(SUM(\$D\$8:D8)>=\$I\$2,"TRUE","FALSE"),"FALSE")

What this does is the date in referenece 'Credit Details'!\$C\$12
Is equal or greater then Reference B8 then complete the main formula

(SUM(\$D\$8:D8)>=\$I\$2,"TRUE","FALSE")

But the problem being the formula always counts from D8 but I need it
to start counting from what the date is B is => then 'Credit Details'!\$C\$12

Is there anything you can think of?

Example, if I want the formula to count all the numbers in row D after the date is above 01/11/06 and the date is in row B. Before I counted \$D\$8:D8 so every time the formula repeating it always started from D8

But the date might not go above 01/11/06 til cell D20 but changes each time

Counting Characters
I have 62,000 lines - and some of the cells contain 4 numbers, and some of the cells contain a sequence with two letters followed by 8 numbers

I want to count how many cells have the sequence of two letters and 8 numbers.

Everything Ive read so far has led me to using the LEN function, but that doesn't seem to be working too well for me.

Example: In D5 if I have AB00011111

Basically =LEN(D5) will tell me there is 10 characters in the cell - How do I get it to count the cells with only 10 characters and post the number of cells with 10 characters in column E1 for me.
