I'd like to create a macro to display the top 5 most frequently occurring repairs on sheet 3 of my workbook. I'd like the macro to analyse all the sheets in my workbook except for the first 3 and then output the results on the 3rd sheet from T50 onward. I have attached a template as an example of how all the sheets in the workbook look (excluding the first 3).

All the sheets have the same layout as the "Survey Template" worksheet.The repairs are located under the Log Book Review of Historical Structural Repair in the Survey Template worksheet and all the repairs are picked through a drop down list that is based on a table of repairs listed in the Parts and Prices sheet within the workbook. I have assigned random serial numbers to the repairs (if that makes it any easier to code instead of locating exact string matches).

ExampleSurveyTemplate.xlsx

I am using a formula that finds the most frequently occuring text from a range of cells that have the text 'Ra' 'Ma', 'Mo' or 'Mi' in them (each cell has a drop down list with these text items only). I am currently using this formula to find which of the four text items appears most frequently in the range:

=INDEX(D6:D15,MATCH(MAX(INDEX(COUNTIF(D6:D15,D6:D15),0)),INDEX(COUNTIF(D6:D15,D6:D15),0),0))

This formula works fine in a case where there is more of one text item than any other, but when there are two items with the same number of entries, this formula comes back with the item that fulfils the criteria first - i.e. if 'Ra' appears 5 times and 'Mo' appears 5 times, then either could come back, depending on which appears first in the range.

The text items rate in importance with 'Ra' being the most important, then 'Ma', then 'Mo', then 'Mi' is the least important. What I am trying to do is, in cases where more that one text item appears the same number of times, get the formula to display the one that is the most important. So for example 'Ra' will always appear over 'Mo' if both have 5 entries, but 'Mo' will appear over 'Mi' if 'Mo' and 'Mi' both have the most entries.

I have 12,000 rows on my excel spread sheet of data and my average volume for all those days are 17,661,398.6

I noticed that the so called average did not show up not even once in all of the 12,000 rows. Thus I conclude that the average is not normal ? How to find & highlight the most frequently occurring number, the usual, and or the normal numbers?

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]))

I need to know from the combinations below which are the 2 numbers that appeared the most. Example....

View 4 Replies View RelatedI have a list of numbers in an Excel range. Most of the numbers are the same but some are not. I need a function that will go through the list and return the value which occurs most frequently. (Not the number of occurences but the actual value). I need to do this in VBA.

View 3 Replies View RelatedI have a list of data that is the day of the month(1-31) that an event has occurred. (sample data in attachment) I want to find some way to find when the "hottest" time of the month is when the events are occuring.

how to get the end result. I think for myself a chart of some sort would be good to see visually, or some kind of statistical breakdown.

My only requirement is that the list is always being added to, so the end result needs to be updating with the complete list.

Im not an expert in excel, so the more details on how to do this the better. Even better would be creating it in the attachment, and uploading your version so I can see exactly how you did it.

I am going to be taking this idea and apply it in the same way for day of week (1-7) and time of day.

I am given a database of 292 cells and i am asked to calculate the mode. How can i do it?

View 9 Replies View RelatedI know the mode function finds the most frequently occuring number but is there a way to find the most frequently occuring word/text?

View 3 Replies View RelatedI am useing Excel 2003 and OPC server client for excel, and i am monitoring 6 values, that are changeing each second. I was trying to make a function to collect this information, so i could form a statistic table, but unfortunally with no success.

I can watch how the values are changeing their numbers, but i cant sotre the values in the rows below. Does anyone know how can i do this

I have a horizontal bar chart in which some of the bars represent positive values and others represent negative values.

How to format the bars so the "positive" bars are shaded in one colour and "negative" bars in another colour? I'd prefer not to change the bar colour manually as the values change frequently.

I'm using Excel 2007 and s/s is 325501 rows deep. It consists of a series of approx 30000 ranges between 4 and 30 rows deep.

What I need to do is locate the next appearance of a name and copy its accompanying value to the present occurrence. Doing this manully is not feasible, given the large size of the s/s and I would like to acquire code.

The names are in column B and the values to be retrieved are in the adjoing cell in column C.

The code should only act when there is a number in column S and retrieved values should be placed in column V.

So if XXX appears in B2 and B345 and C345 contains 932, I need 932 to appear in V2.

Which formula do i use to return a name to me, that is the most occurring from a list?

I tried =mode(range) but i dont think it was the right one.

So basically I have 9 columns. I want to count the amount of times "D" is used in the rows below them and then find the column name of whatever column one has the most.

View 6 Replies View RelatedFor each of my staff I need to count if they worked 15 or more days in the 30 days preceding a statutory holiday. (As a follow on problem... If they have worked 15+ shifts then I'll need to calculate the sum of their hours over the 30 days / 30).

I tried the functions below but they didn't work. (the Name1 column records the number of hours worked that day's shift) The actual count in my test case is 5.

=COUNTIFS([stat],"=STAT",[Date],"<[@Date]",[Date],">=[@Date]-30",[Name1],">0") result: "0"

=COUNTIFS([@stat],"=STAT",[Date],"<[@Date]",[Date],">=[@Date]-30",[Name1],">0") result: #VALUE!

=IF([@stat]="STAT",COUNTIFS([Date],"<[@Date]",[Date],">=[@Date]-30",[Name1],">0"),"NO") result: "0"

I have an excel file that lists individuals who came into the clinic on a given day. I am interested in figuring out the amount of unique individuals in a given month/overall. As this is a working datasheet, I would like a formula that would automatically update this information for me. Here is an example of the file that I am working with: unique case example.xlsx

Specifically, I want an IF function that could place an 'x' in column E depending on if the name in column C is a unique instance. But if the name appears several times in the list, I would also like this function to place an 'x' in column E next to the last occurring unique instance. For example, the name 'Hanna D' occurs 3 times in the spreadsheet I have attached, but I want the 'x' to be next to the most recent incident, when she was screened, as opposed to when she was not contacted (missed/doc forgot).

I am not sure if you can even define a unique case in the IF function, let alone the last occurring unique case.

I am not interested in conditional formatting (highlighting duplicate cases and then placing an 'x' next to the most recent highlighted case) because my spreadsheet has 300+ individuals and it is very time consuming to manually move the 'x' when the same individual appears at a later time.

I am trying to find two formulas:

Formula 1: Formula 1 will be entered into rows 6:9 (in this example). I need it to return the highest selling product (by store) in order form highest selling to lowest selling. I have a makeshift formula already but it cannot report in order (only the highest selling) and it cannot get past the one return index( limitation. When it finds two high sellers it prioritizes the ranking based on how well that product has sold across the other stores. Product 1 sold 13 times across all stores. Product 2 sold 9 times across all stores. So if product 1 & 2 tie for Store 3 (as shown in the example) Product 1 would be chosen based on its sales across the row.

Formula 2 : Same as formula 1 but with Stores (in column 6-9). It reports the highest selling store and treats ties the same way as formula 1.

Is it possible to stop the #REF! error appearing in my formulae when I make a change to my spreadsheet? I have some complicated spreadsheets that take a lot of re-building whenever I need to make changes because of the #REF! error. I tried turning off automatic calculation and that seems to work, until you calculate, then the errors appear. I find myself copying formulae into a text file and then re-pasting back into the spreadsheet after making the changes - there's gotta be a better way! (Using Excel 2003).

View 9 Replies View RelatedMy spreadsheet opens. Cell A1 determines what today is, formatted as "weekday, day month year" (e.g., "Tuesday, 18 February 2014").

I have another cell in which I typically enter the date for the coming Friday. Instead of updating this field once each week, I'd like to calculate the date for the next coming Friday based off the value in cell A1 (to be concise, if "today" happens to be a Friday, then it would calculate the date of next Friday). (Continuing the example above, the coming Friday would be computed as 2/21/2014. If I open the spreadsheet on 2/21, it would calculate 2/28.)

What formula or step(s) to follow to render this value automatically?

I'm trying to keep track of training dates for employees.

I have my spreadsheet conditionally formatted to highlight dates according to months, based on if the training date is due: next month, this month, last month, or 2 months ago; all different colors.

I used "Format only cells that contain" and then used "Dates occurring." The spreadsheet worked perfectly until this month; evidently it doesn't recognize Jan of 2010 being "Next Month," so those cells aren't highlighted. Current formatting is custom, mmm-yy. I tried different date formats but it didn't change anything.

Is there a better way to do this?

I am trying to create a top ten list of my clients, my clients are listed by customer numbers. The data is listed as follows:

Client ID

7164

7164

7164

5781

5781

6392

So my results should be:

Top 1 7164

Top 2 5781

Top 3 6392

I have been trying to use Mode, but that only returns the top value.

I need contents in cell A5 to turn red based on 2 criteria occurring.

IFCell F5 is greater than 0 (zero) AND IF date in H5 is equal to or less than 30 from today's date. PS: if needed I have today's date in A1 for reference.

Can this be done and how?

I am trying to calculate the Date of the next occurring 3rd Friday of the month in relation to a Static Date in a cell. So if Static Date in cell is Tuesday of the second week of a month, then I am trying to return the date of the 3rd Friday of that month. If the static date in the cell is the third friday of the month, I just want to return that particular date. And if the static date is after the 3rd Friday of the month, I am trying to return the 3rd friday of the following month. So far here is the formula I am using:

Code:

=DATE(YEAR(A2),MONTH(A2),14+CHOOSE(WEEKDAY(DATE(YEAR(A2),MONTH(A2),4)),2,1,7,6,5,4,3))

The problem I have is that if the static date is after the third friday of the month, this continues to return the 3rd friday of the month of the static date and does not advance to the third friday of the following month. Looks like I cannot attached a sample spreadsheet but here is a screenshot of the sample sheet:

As part of my work as an intern, my company wants me to look at all of the office supplies ordered by their retail stores and find out which items are most ordered.

The invoice excel file I received from our office supplier has a column for the Item # and Quantity of that item. However, there are multiple occurrences of each Item # because this invoice is itemized by store. Is there a way to consolidate all of the values in the Item # with each other to remove the duplicates while also consolidating all of the quantities of each?

For example:

Office Supplies 2.PNG

The invoice is much longer and has many more different Item #s and many more duplicates but this is more or less the same format.

I used COUNTIF with an advanced filter with Unique Records Only selected but I realized that only gave me the count of the Item #s and didnt factor in the Quantity of each Item # ordered by each retail location.

Find the most common occurring string in my spreadsheet based on a lookup value. For example, if my table is as follows:

Capture.PNG

- I want to calculate the most common value chosen by user 234 (A in this case), user 524 (B in this case)... and so on.

- I want to calculate the percent of the chosen value. So in the previous point, A was chosen ~67% of the time by user 234... and so on.

I'm not sure which formula to use. I am able to find the most common occurring value in column B using the formula below (which I found here), but how can I do that for a specific value, a user ID in this case?

I have the following table:

http://img85.imageshack.us/i/tableb.jpg/

Each question is multiple choice (either A/B/C/D/E) and the values listed are the probability of each letter occurring. What formula would I need to put in the 'output' column for it in each row to output a letter based on the probabilities. E.g. in question 1, most of the time it would output E, but sometimes (rarely) A and very rarely B/C/D.

I have a workbook that includes 4 seperate sheets that are used to record time and expenses for 4 members of staff. I want to write a macro to select the data I need from each sheet and colaberate together in a 'data' sheet so I can combine all the info to run time and expense reports per client showing combination of all time and expense incurred from all 4 staff.

I have named cell ranges in each of the 4 time-sheets. I proceed to record a macro, select the first named range, copy and paste into my data sheet, do a control home then control down arrow, then one more down arrow to get to the first blank cell and repeat the process for all four time-sheets.

This works until I add a new line and then the data will only appear for the last time-sheet (last row of data).

I'm going to be using a spreadsheet to keep track of where different people are at. So if Person 1 is in Room 3, I will stick a 3 in the box next to their name and then can look at the spreadsheet whenever I need and see what room they are in. When I'm deciding what room to put a person in, though, I need to be able to quickly glance at a list of Room #'s and see what one's are still available. So I have a bank of Room #'s in the spreadsheet....1,2,3, etc.

What I'd like, is some way to set this up so that when I put, for example, "3" in the cell next to "Person 1" the spreadsheet automatically removes "3" from the bank of available Room #'s and when I delete the "3" because the person has left, it adds "3" back to the bank of available Rooms.

I have a mass of data which look something like this:

table removed

and I require the ranges of reference numbers to be listed in a column one above the other, which requires inserting new rows. I also need the date & description columns copied down into the newly inserted rows.

So basically for example I would want the top row to now read:

table removed

and then apply the same procedure to the other ranges below this.
