# List Unique Values In Excel And Count Occurrences Of Each?

May 25, 2014
I realise this is beyond me and wonder if it is possible to list uniqure values in excel and place a count occurrences of each. I have a hugh list of over 400 alpha code i.e ABCD, ABCD, ABCE, BDCE, BDCF ZXYE etc etc. What I'd like to do is pick out all the unique values so I can see what alpha codes are on the list. But then I would also like to count the occurrences of each value/name so I know how many times they appeared on the list.

Col A

ABCD

ABCD

ABCE

BDCE

BDCF

ZXYE

ZXYE

YEZY

CDEF

Col B is where i would like to list all the unquie vaules with a count e.g.

ABCD 2

ABCE 1

BDCE 1

BDCF 1

ZXYE 2

YEZY 1

CDEF 1

I've got two columns, one with policy numbers, the other with error codes.

A policy could be in the list more than once, so I'm counting the number of unique policy numbers with the function

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(A10:F10000,A10:A10000)>0,1))

I want to count the number of errors that are NOT code 00 or code 21. Because the error codes are saved as text, I'm counting the number of errors with

=SUMPRODUCT((B10:B10000"21")*(B10:B10000"00")*(B10:B10000""))

The problem is that since a policy number could be listed twice, when I count the errors, I might be counting the same policy as an error twice. This means that I could feasibly end up with more errors than I have unique policies, which doesn't work.

What I'd like to do is only count the number of errors that have unique policy numbers. That is, I only want to count an error the first time it is in the list, based off it's policy number. Is that possible?

Here's my sample data: [URL]

I need to count the unique values in a list based on another value. i.e.

AB ___ Jones

AB ___ Smith

BC ___ Henry

AB ___ Jones

BC ___ Brown

BC ___ Henry

AB ___ Tomkins

For all the AB's in column 1, I need a formula that will give me all the unique names from column 2, in this case 3. I've tried adapting:

=IF(LEN(June!D5:D100),SUMPRODUCT(1/COUNTIF(June!D5:D100,June!D5:D100)))

but haven't been able to get it to work.

I am trying to count the number of unique entries in a sheet, that also satisfy 2 other conditions.

I've attached an example sheet : Example email report.xlsx

The result I need is: The number of unique values in column E, that also have NULL in column G and NULL in column I.

So, in the example, the result would be 7.

I know I can do this by conditional formatting and filtering, but would prefer a formula, and perhaps also a macro that I could apply as the number of rows in each sheet is up to 20000, and each month's sheet will be a different size.

I'm trying to write a formula that will count the number of unique occurrences in a column, if a specified value is found in a different column.

So I want to count the number of unique values in the "ID" column if let's say the text "NameA" appears in the "Name" column.

ID Name 12345

NameA

NameB

NameA 12346

I have some data with recurring key values and differing values in the second column, I need to produce a unique list of key values with the second values concatenated together.(See below)

The data can be 10 rows to 5000 and I can have anything from 5 to 150 sheets (Separate data sets), a macro would go a long way to keeping me sane.

Sample data Required Output

A | B Z

1| 10 | a 10,a,b,c

2| 10 | b 11,a

3| 10 | c 12,a,b

4| 11 | a

5| 12 | a

6| 12 | b

My system is Windows 8 Excel 2010.

I have found ways to count cells but what I am trying to do is in column F I have a list of meeting topics, and sometimes these repeat in a year. in my drop down menu I have all of them listed however my supervisor wants me to add a count after the meeting number in the 1_1X format where x is the number of times a topic has been used.

The output will be added to my macro here

Code:

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)

Dim y As String

Dim z As String

Dim b as Integer

If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub

If Intersect(Target, Range("MEETINGNUMBER")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub

In a datafile I have one column containing a trip 'origin' and a second column contains 'destinations'. I want to count how many times each trip occurs (so the same origin/destination pair). This is doable using COUNTIFS but unfortunately respondents did not provide consequent origins and destinations. I encountered the following formulations

-Alfastraat, Amsterdam

-Alfastraat 5, Amsterdam

-Alfastraat 5, 1021AB Amsterdam

-Amsterdam, Alfastraat

Since the format is different among and within respondents functions containing LEFT, RIGHT, MID are not useful (at least, my trials did fail). I found a VBA-script for a FUZZYVLOOKUP which sounded promising. Unfortunately the data is stored on a remote PC without VBA on it.

Is there a way to count the occurrences of trips given the circumstances?

I have a spreadsheet with 6 months of data in one row. the dates are from A3 (Jan 1) to FY3 (Jun 30). The data is in range A4:FY4. The data is a "$" (without quotes). The $'s are entered randomly during the 6 month period. I need a formula to determine the days between the last occurrence and the next to last occurrence of the $. Example spreadsheet shows the $'s on Mar 28 and May 5 as the last two. The spreadsheet is attached. I am using Microsoft Office Excel 2010.

I have data arranged in a worksheet (see attachment) that has hours of work broken down by day. What I need is a formula that will find the number of times a record occurred in Column F that is greater than or equal to 12 hours each day. So for March 1st there would be 9 times. I can do that now with no problem using "=COUNTIF(F4:F14,">=12")" However, the real thing that I need is how many days of each month were there only 1 count (of 12 hours or more). So it needs to look at the range of data that goes from 3/1/13 to 3/31/13 and find the total number of days that had 1 count (of 12 hours or more) each day and return the number of days it found.

If I have multiple entries with different but repeatable text values in one column - how do I count all unique ones ? Is there a function or does it have to be a pivot table of sth ?

I need a way to find a value in a column which has one or more corresponding values in an adjacent column. Then take all of the corresponding values found and count all occurrences of the found values in another column. But I only want to count the entries if an adjacent column is not blank.

Not the easiest thing to describe. Starting to wonder if I need to think in reverse. I hope the attached example makes more sense.

I'm running into an issue trying to calculate unique values in a Data column based on a few variables in other columns.

My current formula in Summary tab D4:D19 is

{=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(Data!$I$3:$I$66<$E$1,IF(Data!$A$3:$A$66=$H$1,

IF(Data!$C$3:$C$66=A4,ROW(Data!$I$3:$I$66)))),ROW(Data!$I$3:$I$66)),1))

+

SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(Data!$I$3:$I$66<$E$1,IF(Data!$A$3:$A$66=$I$1,

IF(Data!$C$3:$C$66=A4,ROW(Data!$I$3:$I$66)))),ROW(Data!$I$3:$I$66)),1))}

This is currently counting the number of times a date value (data column I) appears for that name (A4:A19) in the data when meeting all of the conditions. I need it to instead count the number of times a unique date appears for that name with the additional conditions met (which all appear to work fine).

The results in the pink highlighted cells (Summary column D) should be:

Names starting with A - 3

All others - 2

I've left some other columns in the data with X's so that I can easily convert this back to my working spreadsheet.

Usually it's to count for one unique word in a cell. But what if I have 2 or more unique word in a cell and need to be counted for?

for example

this category has 5 unique words in the synonym list

I have created a VBA Script with the goal of taking an initial Excel Spreadsheet and essentially creating a summary of it. The original Spreadsheet has data in it such as:

110 Compact Car

110 Compact Car

111 Full Sized Car

111 Full Sized Car

111 Full Sized Car

113 Truck

The numerical part of the above data is in column A, and the description is in column B of the original spreadsheet. I have been successful in creating a new Spreadsheet, naming the columns with each unique entry from the first set of data, but I cannot seem to correctly formulate a looping statement which correctly counts the above. The solution that I would like to get to on the new sheet is the following:

110 Compact Car 2

111 Full Sized Car 3

113 Truck 1

The number after the descriptions would be generated by the VBA Script and placed into column C in the new Spreadsheet behind the correct description.

The function below should return the value in a cell IF the string in the cell two cells to the left of it is "Nemo" Omitting the part highlighted in blue, my function returns a list of unique values...but when it's included, nothing is returned at all. Perhaps, there is an error in the syntax that I'm overlooking?

Function listUnique(rng As Range) As Variant

Dim row As Range

Dim elements() As String

I'm working with a data set (attached) that tracks financials at both the job and item level (in my customer's data - a unique job can be made up of a single or multiple items).

I've successfully built a formula (in column C of the attached) that counts the total number of items and their associated $ values that were invoiced in a given month based on my customer's requested item-type categorizations (i.e. "Exact Match", "Similar", "Inferred", "Cost-Plus").

The problem I'm running into is building a formula that counts the first unique instance of the Job ID associated with those items. For example - in cell C33 on the attached - The total number of items invoiced in June that were "Exact Match" was 10. These items were spread across 9 unique jobs - and that's where I'm struggling - to build a formula that only counts the first unique instance of the corresponding Job ID in Column C.

The formula I'm having trouble with is located in Cell D12 on the "Dashboard" tab of the attached.

The formula as I have it is returning a result of 8 - because it's summing the "1"'s in Column I on my "Invoice Data" tab - however it should read 9 (Filter Column Q on the "Invoice Data" tab to "June", Filter Column AQ on the "Invoice Data" tab to "Exact Match", and then sum the unique job IDs in Column C).

Now, what I would like to do, is see how many of these unique numbers relate to another number in column D
