Formula To Create List Of Unique Items

Feb 12, 2009

I have a column that looks something like (it is VERY long and has over 20 different names):

abe
abe
abe
abe
ben
ben
ben
cat
cat
john
john
john
john
tex
tex

I want to create another column (automatically) that lists each of of those once:
abe
ben
cat
john
tex

Any idea of how I can do this automatically?

Excel 2010 :: Limitation On Formula To Create List Of Unique Items

Jan 21, 2014

Excel 2010. There is a limit to the usability of the

=INDEX($A$1:$A$1000,MATCH(0,COUNTIF($A$1:$A$1000,"<"&$A$1:$A$1000),0))

method. It seems like the limitation is in the Countif function going over 1000 (or some other size limit)

I have a list of ~1500 rows, of that there are approximately 55 unique items. Doing the unique array works correctly up until item ~40, upon which it fails by returning the 1st item only (for the rest).

Trying to debug, and pulling out the Match section, it functions up until 976 (that is

MATCH(0,COUNTIF($N$1:$N40,$C$3:$C$1500),0)

returns 976) anything after returns just 1 (1st item).

It seems to be a limitation on the text string size that COUNTIF can handle.

Creating A Unique List Of Items In Column A That Have A Corresponding Non-zero Value In Column B, I.e. Excluding All Items Where Sumif ColumnB Would Sum To 0

Jul 17, 2009

I know how to use array formulae to create a unique list, i.e.{=INDEX($G$1:$G$760,SMALL(IF(ROW($G$1:$G$760)=MATCH($G$1:$G$760,$G$1:$G$760,0),ROW($G$1:$G$760)),ROW()))}

however this is giving all the unique items from column G and I only want the unique items that have a non-zero value in column H as well. This would be the sumif of all instances that would have to be zero. I've tried to crack it and I've tried to search for solutions but so far no joy.

Populate Combobox List With ONLY Unique Items ()

Nov 16, 2006

Populate Adv Filter Criteria from Inputbox with valid data

I've set up a macro to extract 3 different sets of data using Advanced Filter (same data range, different criteria & extract ranges)

There are multiple options (different individual dates) to satisfy the criteria (a date) for each of the 3 extracts and I want the user to select the criteria (a specific date) from the range of unique values in the data range upon which the Advanced Filter criteria is going to be applied. (A bit like the effect provided by Autofilter)

My initial attempt was to capture the criteria date from the user and populate a cell, and then have a vlookup function in another cell check if that crieteria value exists in the specified range. I then ran a loop in the VBA code until the value is valid (ie. exists in the range). However, to streamline this I was hoping to allow the user to see a list of the valid (available) dates when they respond to my Inputbox request for the criteria.

Parsing A Row Of Multiple Items From A List Of Matching Unique

Jan 8, 2008

I have two worksheets: A and B.

Worksheet A:Contains 2 columns: Issue# (Col. A) and Program (Col. B).

Issue# contains a list of multiple issues. There are several instances in which the issue# is repeated.

Any particular Issue# field may have several issues in it, delimited by a comma.

Program is a program associated with the issue and this column also contains duplicates.
Worksheet B:Contains 1 column: Issue# (Col. A)

This is a unique list of issues#'s.

All Im looking to do is parse all Issue#'s from Worksheet B and have some way of knowing if that issue# is anywhere in Worksheet A. Most importantly, I need the "indicator" to be displayed on Worksheet A. This way I can see what program(s) is/are associated with the matching issues.

A couple other notes:All Issue#'s in Worksheet B are referenced at least once in the Worksheet A Issue# list

There are several issues in Worksheet A which are not referenced in the issue list on worksheet B (of which I dont care about)

I really hope that makes sense, but if not...

Here's the best example I could come up with: ....

Create Unique List From Matrix & List Frequency Of Each Occurrence

May 23, 2009

I've searched the forum and believe this thread to be the closest to what im looking for, but its doesnt completely apply: matrix to list conversion. I have an attachment to support my questions (see attached). I have a matrix of words (strings) that contain repeating and non-repeating contents. The matrix also has spaces which are of no value. Essentially, the VBA needs to ' analyze' this matrix and create a consolidated frequency list (as shown in the file).

The matrices are HUGE and therefore some of the clumsy VBA i am using is turning out to be a bit inefficient. The file also contains formulas and such that I cannot use AutoFilter nor can I use Insert or Delete rows...so the VBA shouldnt use those either.

Using Array To Create List Of Selected Items?

Mar 2, 2014

I've created a range B3:B12 in which each cell returns TRUE of FALSE. There corresponding values are listed in C3:C12. I have the same thing again in D3:D12 and E3:E12. Checkboxes link to the TRUE/FALSE cells. Attached is a stripped down file to show this.

I want to create a formula that lists each item in the one cell (no spaces required inbetween) for use with a search. I know a long winded way to do this involving many IFs but any array will be much more tidier, thing is I hardly use arrays and have struggled with this one.

I'm thinking it will be along the lines of =IF(B3:B12="TRUE",C3:C12,"")&IF(D3:D12="TRUE",E3:E12,"") but exactly what it should be is beyond me.

EDIT: The original file attached was corrupt for some reason, the new attachedment is the same except instead of TRUE/FALSE cells I've set them to 'x' for quickness (lost my work...!).

Also, after the list is created on the Summary worksheet, I need a count of each field by worksheet and a total. This is how I currently have the Summary set up:

Part Type|Total|Question1|Question2|Question3|Question4|Question5
Name|=SUM(C2:F2)|=COUNTIF(Question1!$A:$A,A2)|

Create Unique List & Summarize All Associated Values

Jan 30, 2009

I have a list of sales events that ran at various venues, together with how many people attended and how much revenue was brought in by sales. This data is arranged by week. One venue will never have more than one event per week, but different venues may have sales events on the same week.

My table looks like:

In reality this list could be thousands of rows long.

“Event week” is the calendar week of the event. “Weeks open” shows for each event how many weeks that venue has been open (may or may not be useful!).

What I need to do is to be able to pick a number of weeks (preferably changeable by entering into a cell) and have a list produced of each venue that has run for at least that many weeks, and the sum of people and sales in those first X weeks. My idea of output, if the user input “2” as the number of weeks would therefore look something like:

Note that
1)only venues that have run at least 2 meetings are shown in the output
2)even if venue has run over 2 meetings, only people and sales figures from the first 2 are summed up and displayed.

In this case. Later on I need to produce a frequency chart/histogram grouping the results into categories, but I know how to do this as long as I can get to the step before – but wanted to mention it in case there are shortcuts.

Have been battling with this with pivots, database functions, array formulae etc. for a long time.

Attached is the spreadsheet with sample data. The red table is the part I am stuck on. The solution has to work in Excel 2003.

Create Unique List From Column With A Condition

2Sally2

4Emily4
5Lexi3
6Bill2
7Josh1
8Jacob2
9Mary3
10Gary4
11

In D2:D11, I want a non-duplicate list of all the "1" names, i.e., Bob and Josh. In E2:E11, a list of all the "2" names (Sally, Bill & Jacob), and so on. Sorted would be nice, but not necessary. When new names and their numbers are added to A1:B200, they need to automatically show up in D2:G:201 as appropriate. I've looked over VLOOKUP, INDEX, MATCH, etc., but all seem to simply return the first and not every match. Maybe I'm just missing it.

Is this possible without VBA? Not that I have any objection to it, but delving into and learning it is a little outside the available time I have now. If it takes VBA I'll address it when I can free up some time.

Importing Values From Sheets To Create Unique List

Jun 2, 2009

I need to be able to pull information from 5 columns on 5 different pages, and pull all of the unique names out of it. From there, I need to create a list of all of these names. More often than not, this could only be three names, but I still would like this to be automatic because eventually it could be 50 or 60, and manually editing this list would get tedious. Lastly, is it possible to have a list create cells? For example: I have information on row 4, this one will start on row 6. My next group of information starts on row 14. That leaves 7 rows for information. I don't want to leave a large gap at the top of the page, so I'd like to be able to create cells if the list I'm trying to create has more information on it. Seems plausible in my mind, but I'm still new to excel.

Create Unique Values List While Overwriting Old Data?

Jan 24, 2012

I will copy a report into sheet 1, starting in the same place(A1), on a weekly basis. The headers are: Item, Quantity & Price

Week 1's report shows the following:
Windows 5 $1.00
Doors 6 $1.50
Chairs 7 $2.00

Week 2's report shows the following:
Windows 3 $1.00 (change in quantity)
Tables 7 $5.00 (new item)
Chairs 7 $2.50 (change in price)

I need to have a rolling, unique list on Sheet 2 that will do the following:

- add new line items

- keep old line items while checking to see if the quantity or price has changed.

Therefore, after week 2's report is pasted on sheet 1, Sheet 2 should look like this:

Windows 3 $1.00
Doors 6 $1.50
Chairs 7 $2.50
Tables 7 $5.00

Here's the most important part: There will be formulas in Column D in Sheet 2 that I need to stay with each item. generating the desired result on Sheet 2!

Macro To Create Unique Rolling Data List

Feb 4, 2012

I need a Macro to create a unique, rolling data list. On Sheet 1, a report is pasted(from outside source) in cell A3(Rows 1 & 2 are headers) on a weekly basis. It is always the same amount of columns wide(138). The number of rows will always vary but will never be more than 500.

Here’s what I need for Sheet 2:

-Column A should be a copy from Column A on Sheet 1 (data is ITEMS)
-Column B should be a copy from Column BH on Sheet 1 (data is QUANTITY of items)
-Column C should be a copy from Column BI on Sheet 1 (data is PRICE of items)

Here’s the challenge (when the new report is pasted on Sheet 1):

-Sheet 1. Find new ITEMS not on Sheet 2 and paste them at the end of the report on Sheet 2 along with their QUANTITY and PRICE
-Sheet 1. Find any ITEMS already on Sheet 2, then update new QUANTITY and PRICE from Sheet 1 onto Sheet 2
-Sheet 2. Leave ITEMS alone that are now missing from the new report on Sheet 1

Create A List Of Unique Names From A List Of Multiple Names

Oct 21, 2009

I have a database output file where one of the columns contains managers names, often more than once. I want to apply an autofilter on manager name and then copy the result to another sheet or sheets. My criteria for the autofilter is a variable pointing to a list of names that at present I maintain by hand; a for-each-next loop then cycles through the names.

What I would like to do, before running the autofilter code, is to create the list of names via code. This would then automatically pickup names that are missing.

The code I have so far is below:

Public Sub find_managers()
Dim managers1 As Range
Dim names1 As Range
Dim n1 As Variant
Dim n2 As Variant

In my mind it should check the names in the unique list against the imported list and add any missing names.
