# 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)?

## Excel 2013 :: Counting Text Occurrences In A Column?

Aug 15, 2014

I am working on a big project involving baseball statistics, evaluating individual seasons. After a great deal of entertaining data gathering, I have a spreadsheet of 1896 seasons that meet certain criteria--that is, seasons belong to an individual player. The player's names are in column A of my spreadsheet.

Individual names appear between 1 and 15 times. I would very much like to generate a quick table (or just a couple of columns) that lists every name in column A, and how many times it appears. My understanding is that the histogram function won't work with text. I'm running Excel 2013 on windows.

## 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 Text From Different Columns?

Sep 10, 2013

How can I count all the cell text from different columns?

I have a sheet..that has the well known columns from A to EM, but let's say A to Z (A,B,C,etc).

I want to count all the cells that have text inside from columns: A,C,E,G,I (so, from 2 to 2). But the counting to be for all these A,C,E,G,I, etc columns, and to be put in a cell which gives this total number as info for user.

How can I do this?

## Counting Unique Text

Nov 19, 2007

I picked up a great formula from this website to count unique values =SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(K19:K205,K19:K205)>0,1)) and it works great. Thank you to whoever sent it (sorry, forgot who)

I am trying to find a formula to do the same for text.

## Counting Text WITHIN Cells

Mar 3, 2009

I have a long list of cells each one containing a list of attributes similar to the following:

MBLB
MB9A
MCDA
MCDB
MCDC
MCDG
MCD7
MCD8
MCD9
MCE+
MCE0
MCE9
MCVO
MCVS
MEW5
ME2V
MLRP

Bear in mind that the above is in 1 cell and in-between each attribute is an - Alt Enter

Now I want to know how many cells a certain attribute is contained in e.g. "MCE+". I can do this on a one by one basis using the "Contains" Filter. However I would like to have the FULL list of my attributes and know how many times each one is mentioned.

Counting with text and symbols mixed in. This is what I'm wanting to do:

For example:

## Countif - Counting Too Much (text Values)

Aug 6, 2009

I noticed that when I use countif to count cells with certain text value it works but up to some point when it returns way too much then (when there are generally more values matching I think). I don't know what is the cause ..formatting? some function limit ?

## Counting Consecutive Text Strings

Jan 27, 2010

I want to count the number of consecutive text entries in the one column. Skip a certain entry eg: NA, then count the next string of the same entry. eg:

Apples
Apples
Apples
Apples
NA
NA
NA
Apples
Apples
Apples
NA

So the output that I am after will be counting the number of Apples in a row 4 & 3 but skipping NA.

## Counting Text Characters Within A Cell

Aug 8, 2007

This should be simple, but I am struggling with finding a way to use the search or find function to identify text characters. This is my situation, I have for example a cell that contains FW023 or D1234. I need to be able to count the number of characters that are text.

i would think I would be able to do it with the search or find function, but can't figure out how to get it to just count the number of text characters with in it.

## Counting Multiple Text Conditions

Nov 7, 2008

I am working on a spreadsheet that contains multiple text conditions that I need to keep count of. I would like to try the countif but I don't know if this will work. Here's a summary of my spreadsheet

Column F in my spreadsheet contains 7 different regions (all text).
Column D contains an open or closed option that is not validated.

In my totals section of the spread sheet I need to count each region that meets the "closed" criteria.

## Counting Instances Of Text In A Range

Jan 13, 2014

I am trying to count the instances of a certain text in a range across 2 columns.

so lets say I have the word Dog in A1, A2, A3, A4 & B1, B2, B3, B4. I am look for the number beside each cell to say 1, 2, 3, 4 instead of summing the whole range.

I have tried the array formula of {=SUM(IF(C:D=C2,1,0))}. However this does just bring back the sum of the instances and I am clueles on how to get it to show the first instance, the second etc.

## Counting Occurrences Of Text String

Dec 11, 2006

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.

Apr 22, 2005

I have an Excel document that I want to count the number of rows that meet a text value in two columns.

Column B has a value of either "Open" or "Closed".
Column C has a value of either "High", "Med", or "Low".

I want to count the number of rows that are "Open" "High", "Open" "Med", and "Open" "Low".

I've been studying a number of different formulas, but I can't seem to get my head wrapped around this functionality.

## 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.

## Formula To Exclude Counting Of Text In A Cell

Jul 14, 2014

having the formula exclude counting text in cells.

=IFERROR(SUMPRODUCT(--(INDIRECT("'"&TEXT(B\$2,"mm-dd-yy")&"'!A4:A44")=Tracking!\$A3)*(INDIRECT("'"&TEXT(B\$2,"mm-dd-yy")&"'!D4:J44")>8)),"")

I have found tips on counting coloured cells but none that seem to apply to this form of font format.

## Counting Unique Items(values Or Text)

Aug 3, 2006

I want to count unique items in a list with an array formula, like the items is in 3 columns A,B,C are from row 2 to 101. Now i use an array to filter out some rows in the columns of B,C & then count unique items in Column A.

so,
column A has "30 diffrent names repeated from A2 to A101"
column B has numbers 0 to 100
column c has value either 0 or 1

now i use an formula TO filter out rows in column B & c
formula =count(IF((B2:B101>0)*(C2:C101<>1),1))) using ctrl+shift+enter

now what should i suffix or prefix to this formula to count unique values in column A.

## Cell Counting Based On Text And Style?

Feb 3, 2012

I'm putting together a calendar that will have show when people are off on holiday, training, out of the office or ill. But as it will identify people by name I have changed to cell style to reflect just what activity they are doing. As such I want to be able to count over a year just who has done what.

Is there a piece of code that can count based on the text inside a cell and it's style e.g. "20% - Accent1"

## Date Stops Counting If Cell Changes From Text

Jul 17, 2013

I'm working on an excel file where I can see if customers pays too late.

I've got this for the moment:

Date order
Expiration date
Days over
Days too late
Paid?

15/06
15/07
0
-2
NO

[Code] ........

My question is about "Days too late". When Paid changes to "YES", the days too late stays the same number it was before. When it's "NO" it keeps counting.

## Counting Multiple Text Names Per Cell

Jan 13, 2009

I have a column that can have a single name or multiple names typed in each cell. I would like to use a vlookup table to match against the cells values. Exact matches are no problem when it is a single name, but I need a formula that matches up the name, but does not need to match the entire cell text (name1, name2, name3,...) and can count the number of cells that contained this text with in a range. In the example above, I have three names.

If those three names are listed in the vlookup table, I want to count each one so that I can sum up that company 1 appeared x number of times with in the column and is x % of all company names, company 2 appared x number of times and is x% of all companies, and so on. My formula to match exact text values looks like this: =IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(D4,\$H\$7:\$J\$48,3,0)),0,VLOOKUP(D4,\$H\$7:\$J\$48,3,0)) This works fine if the cell value is simply company 1, etc.

## Counting Instances Of Text Based On 2 Criteria

Aug 17, 2006

Need a way to count the number of times a certain bit of text occurs in a range based on a given criteria? Say I've got a column of names and another column with true or false in it (next to each name), how could a do a total of how many times 'TRUE' occurs next to each name?
