Counting Every Nth Occurrence (with & Without A Condition)
I have a few dozen columns of data and would like from each row to count the number of negative numbers in every 3 occurrences. E.g. in row 2 Id want to count the negative occurences in B2, E2, H2, K2 etc. Also, Id like to be able to count the total number of occurences along each row, again counting every 3rd occurrence, though this time both negative and positive values.

Counting Occurrence In Date Periods
I want to count the number of sales in three periods. prior 7 to 12 months, prior 4 to 6 months, and over the last 3 months.

I have three letters that occur in column B of sheet 2.

A for active, P for pending, and S for sold.
The date of activity appears in column C for each event. It is in mm/dd/yyyy format. Currently I have over 5000 rows.

I would like to total the sales for each period and place it on sheet 1.
can you help or point me to the right place to read up on it. I can get the information by using a pivot table but there has to be a faster way.

Counting Each Occurrence Of Multiple Values
I'm working on an attendance sheet, and have allocated certain letters for related occurrences. For example, V=Vacation day, S=Sick day, B=Bereavement, etc. Over a two-week period (eg - D19:D32), I want to total the number of times one of these values has been used, and add to work hours. Where an employee will enter 7.5 in D19 to indicate hours worked, they may instead enter a 'V' for a vacation day, and have 7.5 hours still added to their total hours in the pay period. I have a formula that works, but it is so incredibly long that I'm thinking there must be an easier way.

Right now, I'm using the following:
=SUM(D19:D32)+(COUNTIF(D19:D32,"V")*7.5)+(COUNTIF(D19:D32,"Vh")*7.5)+(COUNTIF(D19:D32,"S")*7.5)+(COU NTIF(D19:D32,"Sh")*7.5)+(COUNTIF(D19:D32,"H")*7.5)+(COUNTIF(D19:D32,"B")*7.5)+(COUNTIF(D19:D32,"A")* 7.5)

Repetitive Printing
I'm an entry level Excel user who is looking for a spread sheet to print multiple pages for tagging pallets in a warehouse. The pallets will contain the address of the customer and the number the pallet is.

Example 30 pallets would be
1 of 30 then print
2 0f 30 then print
3 of 30 then print

how I can put in a varible pallet total and have it print the all sheets up to the given number?

Find Most Frequently Occurring Or Repetitive Value In Range
I have a few columns referencing Crash numbers. The majority of each column is a null value, with about 10-20% of it actually containing the number of a Crash. I want to run one MODE each on a column to see what the most common Crash is.

The following
=MODE(Table_X[Crash Alpha])

Results in a #N/A Value Not Available error. What do I need to change to make it work on the column with some nulls and some numbers (no strings)?

As a secondary question, if I wanted to apply a date filter (the columns are part of a table, including a Date column) like the below:

If(Table_X[DateTime]>F9,If(Table_X[DateTime]<F9+1, etc.)

(F9 being the location where my filter Date is)

Where would I apply that to the Mode? Should I just change it to an If statement, with the Mode positioned like so?

=If(Table_X[DateTime]>F9,If(Table_X[DateTime]<F9+1, MODE(Table_X[Crash Alpha]))

Count The Sums Of Repetitive Cells And Then Remove The Duplicates?
I've got the following table (see attachment). In a column A there're the articles and some of them appear several times. In column B there's the quantity. The goal is to get in column C the sum of quantities in column B for the repetitive articles in column A and then delete the repetitive articles.

so the table should look like:
3RD125070442H 30
3RE071870493H 4
3RI100009624T 15

in excel 2007 I found only the function to remove the duplicate cells but I need to get the sums before removing them and have no clue how to that.

Last Occurrence Of A Particular Value
I would like to lookup the last occurence of a particular cell value in a worksheet and use the cell value in the column immediately adjacent to this one in a calculation.

For example, The text "Run #" occurs several times in a sheet with a numerical value in the next column over. I would like to use the last occurence - or as far as that goes, the largest occurence of the numerical value. Unfortunately, there is additional data in between the "Run #" occurences, so a simple max() for the column will not work.

VLOOKUP Second Occurrence
I am trying to find a way to return an second answer for a second occurance using a VLOOKUP function. (maybe it can be done with something else?)

ex. range= A1:C3,

A1 = 40CA B1 = 30R2 C1 = TRUCK
A2 = 40CB B2 = 30A1 C2 = CAR
A3 = 40CA C2 = 30B3 C3 = TRAILER

VLOOKUP("40CA",A1:C3,3,FALSE) Returns "TRUCK"

How can I get a formula like this to return "TRAILER" the

Lookup Nth Occurrence Or Instance
I have a very very long weekly table of, say, sales regions, items sold, revenue, profitability, etc.

(Very long here means 120,000 rows, and in Excel 2007 - please don't hold this against me! )

Let's assume Row 1 and Column A are for headers. So Column B is Sales Region and Column C is Item Name. The first Sales Region, beginning in B2, let's call it "America", will repeat (B3, B4....) until the Item Names are done for that region. Then the next Region starts, "Australia", and the list of Items starts again, etc.

Not all the Items will be sold in every Region each week, and even some Regions may disappear from the table one week only to reappear a few weeks down the road. The table is Sorted alphabetically, though, first by Region, then by Item.

One way to VLOOKUP week over week information from last week's report onto this week's report is to concatenate both weeks' Region and Item information (=B2&C2) seperately, and VLOOKUP by that. This returns only combinations of Region/Item that occured in the current week, and with ISERROR, 0 for combinations that occured this week, but not last week. As far as what it returns, this is fine for our purposes but with several pieces of information to VLOOKUP (#, revenue, profit, etc.) and 120,000 rows, it takes forever. Literally over an hour to copy down the week over week parts.

I had the idea that maybe it would be faster if I could define individual VLOOKUP ranges for each Region, and then look up Item within that range. These ranges would vary in placement in the table and in numbers of rows each week, as the number of Items sold in each Region waxes and wanes, hence "dynamic ranges" - I hope I've used that term correctly.

Is there an effective, efficient way to return the row numbers of the first and last instances of a given Region, and use that range for the Item VLOOKUP?

Consecutive Value Occurrence Count
I have to calculate bonus payments for people working O/S. I have a 5 year calendar in month blocks (60 months/columns). In each month there is a percentage 'time O/S' figure.

If an employee is O/S for 3 consecutive months they get bonus 'A', 6 consective months bonus 'B', etc. How can I evaluate the 60 columns, returning the number of times 100% occurs in 3 consecutive months/columns. I have found examples of similar solutions but they will return a value of 3 if there are 5 consecutive months of 100%...

ie. 100 100 100 100 100
= 100 100 100 *** ***
& *** 100 100 100 ***
& *** *** 100 100 100
= 3

Find Every Occurrence Of Duplicated Entries
I've been working on my original problem and have gotten a little closer to the results I'm looking for but not quite there. Basically, I'm now running into a problem of only finding the 1st occurence in a range of cells when I want to find every occurrence and show the result. Also, the range of cells to look for in my argument has 2 criteria, the start date and the end date. Can anyone tell me if there's a way to search through a range of cells and return every instance of that cell even if it's duplicated?

1st Occurrence Displaying Value In Cell To Left
see attached. The only reason why I include an attachment is because the computer I am using at work is crippled and I cannot download a program which would allow me to display in the message body. A10:C12 is to be a summary of the respective values in A30:C36. I want a formula which will find the first occurrence of a revision number in B30 to B36 and apply the date in the cell to the left to the respective revision number to the above summary date column [[A10 to A12]. B30 to B36 is always unsorted order. It has to allow for lines in A30:C36 which have no entries. Line 32 and Line 33 is an example of this.

In other words, based on the above example, A10 would show date 02/01/06, A11 would show 03/22/06, and A12 would show 04/14/06. Each revision number in B30 to B36 is consistent with regard to the particular revision being the same date. The reason for wanting first occurence is because any one revision in the summary may consist of a number of revision amounts below, each having the same revision number. inally, although I would like to retain the particular column order in the example, if necessary, I can reverse A1 and B2.

Making Chart/graph From Text By Occurrence
I track inventory/sales for a very small sole proprietorship. I'm looking to track the number of items that I sell based on the text that I enter in a certain column.

Specifically, I want to have a visual chart/graph to show the percentage of each size/color of an item that I sell, as I sell it. When I enter the words "3T pink" I want the chart/graph/whatever to show another quantity of this category. As I sell a new item, I want the chart to reflect it.

The problem I'm having, is that the graphs/charts require two data sets, but I want the graph to calculate it for me! All I want to do is enter the text for specific items, and when the text occurs subsequent times, I want this reflected in the graph/chart.

It seems so much more simple in my head....basically I want a dynamic chart, not based on a static data set.

Lookup Nth Occurrence Of Date & Return Adjacent Cell
I have a list of dates in column AF. I would like to retrieve a value from the 2nd occurrence of a date, so I used the function for the Nth Occurrence on this website as follows:

Function Nth_Occurrence(range_look As Range, find_it As String, _
occurrence As Long, offset_row As Long, offset_col As Long)
Dim lCount As Long
Dim rFound As Range
Set rFound = range_look.Cells(1, 1)
For lCount = 1 To occurrence
Set rFound = range_look. Find(find_it, rFound, xlValues, xlWhole)
Next lCount
Nth_Occurrence = rFound.Offset(offset_row, offset_col)
End Function

The excel formula I am using is as follows: =Nth_Occurrence(AF2:AF622,AE2,2,0,1)
Where AE2 is the date I am looking up. My question is this: When I put in a date ("1/12/2007") instead of AE2, i get the correct value. I tried giving AE2 and the AF column the same date formatting (3/14/2001), but this doesn't work. The date I am searching for also changes, so I cannot just type the date into the excel formula.
