# Counting Number Of Different Instances

Dec 5, 2006
I would like to count the number of instances of different schedules shows in one department. For example for dept. 1, I would like to know how many different schedules are in that dept. I have 48 schedules and 60 departments (numbered 1-60). I would like to know how many "different schedules" dept 1 has and so on. I don't think the frequency function will work. Is there a way I can use sumproduct to get the result I'm looking for? The information is on a separate worksheet in colums (Col. A holds the dept and Col. B holds the relative schedule).

I found the following formula online while searching for how to count unique instances of a number in a list. The list may have blank cells or repeated numbers but this formula works. =SUMPRODUCT((A1:100<>"")/COUNTIF(A1:A100,A1:A100&""))

So my question is...can someone verbally explain just exactly what is going on? i.e. I don't understand the <>"" in the sumproduct argument or the &"" in the second argument of the countif.

I like to think that I am pretty good on Excel 2003, can't stand 2007 but hey thats for another thread.

I can do most forumulas and write some pretty elaborate macros, but one thing I am trying to do has completely stumped me.

Each month I compile a Pivit table that shows by day if a product was in stock or out of stock, this is represented by a blank cell (in stock), "1" Out of stock.

All this is fine, but I want to be able to show the number of instances that a product was out of stock in any given month...

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.

I need a formula to count the number of times the same thing occurs in a particular column. i.e. tree 1, tree 2, tree 3. I just tried the countif function and it is returning "0". Not sure if that's because the data I am looking for is part number/part text. Does this make a difference? There are also spaces between the number and the text. Also, the range I am asking excel to look in is based on a concatenate formula.

If you can see the example spreadsheet that has been uploaded, I need VBA to try and count how many times the number 1, 2 or 3 occurs in the column A and give that figure in b15, 16 and 17 respectively. I also need it count the number of times a particular product appears in column B and give those figures in b19, 20 and 21.

I am trying to write a macro to clean up a CSV file which automatically hard codes titles throughout the spread sheet. I am getting an error on the "FindNext" method below.

The database is for a Prison, and an obvious item to search for on a userform is Prison number. I have a serach option that generates an array listing in a listbox, selecting that item then populates the userform - no problem.

The problem occurs when an individual has more than once instance that has been recorded, is it possible to have more than one row generated in a listbox that can be selected, I only want indiviudal rows selected. The coding I am using for one of the single instance listbox is etc etc etc has been used to demonstrate that the coding continues to the length of the array requied

Any method to determine the number of instances a value ("4" for example) appears next to a specific value ("x" for example). I don't have a workbook; I'm just looking for any formula that can search for specific values and find the total number of instances that an adjoining cell contains data.

I'm using WinXP with Excel 2003 - I have a column of highway sign description data (16k+ rows).

Example:

Curve Arrow Right

Curve Arrow Left

Turn Arrow

Reversing Curve Arrow Right

Winding Road Arrow(plus many more unique entries)

I'm using SUM and COUNTIF to total the number of times "Curve", "Reversing", "Turn" and "Winding" appear in the column.

My formula is:

Code: =SUM(COUNTIF($F11:$F16196,{"*CURVE*","*REVERSING*","*TURN*","*WINDING*"}))

Which works great EXCEPT what I really want is the number of cells with any of those key words, not the total count of those words. The example above should be 5, but since row four contains more that 1 of the key words I'm getting 6.

I've tried everything I know (which isnt that much to be honest. lol). Ive tried the frequency formula but that doesn't work the way I want it - I think its probably the wrong formula to use. I've also tried a pivot table but they always vex me. If a pivot table IS the way to go, could someone talk me through it step by step? (*the wizard is just as confusing as doing it yourself I find) ....

I have a spreadsheet for tracking jobs. Most everything is based off of week # rather than date. I am trying to get the stats page of the workbook to tally the total number of late jobs per week.The current week is taken care of because there is a function that automatically displays on time yes or no and I just set it to count the yeses or nos.The problem I am having is for past weeks.

I tried- =COUNTIF(Table2[On-time],"No"+(CountIF(Table2[Week # Hidden],"<Weeknum(Now())" but that doesn't work. I also tried isolating the < like this. =COUNTIF(Table2[On-time],"No"+(CountIF(Table2[Week # Hidden],"<"Weeknum(Now()) and that did not work either.

------ UPDATE

In response to using CountIFS I have also tried-

=COUNTIFS(Table2[On-time],"NO",Table2[Due Week '# Hidden],"<Weeknum(Now())") this just returns a zero value even when I have a late job listed three weeks ago.

I have a list of ID# (Col A) and dates (Col B). The ID # of reference is Col (F) and today's date (Col G). I need to count how many future dates there are in the list (Col B) that are unique and in the future from today's date.

I'm still fairly new to all these formulas and functions which is why I'm not attempting this in VBA.

I've attached an example work book and I would like the result in H2.

My data is as follows:

Month 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17

Number of Starts 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10

Rolling Number of Cases 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 110 120 120 120 120 120 120

In my dataset above the cases finish after 12 months (hence why there is a maximum number of cases).

What I am seeking is a method to count along a certain number of cells, then sum the contents of those. For example, I would like to count the contents of up to 12 cells, then sum those 12 cells.

Where it gets difficult is as follows:

- In month 6, I am just counting the contents of 6 cells (months 1-6)

- In month 12, I am counting the contents of 12 cells (months 1 -12)

- In month 18, I am counting the contents of 12 cells (month 7 - 18)

I need a formula, from which I need to drag (if needed) and to fill with numbers, by following principles:

- when the left cell contain the zero, it needs to find on the same column if there exists another zero, or another one and count them, let's say if find three zeros untill find number one, return 3.

- when find a number 1, after another 1, has to return a zero.

- the formula need to initialise from the top of the column, only finds the first number 1.

I have a relevant example down bellow. I used to count them visually and sometimes errors sneak into my spreadsheets.

I am trying to calculate the number of months between two given dates.

The spreadsheet is basically about staff and their start and end dates.

For example start dates would be in colum A and end dates would be in column B (in dd/mm/yyyy format).

I am currently using the following formula:

=DATEDIF(A1,B1,"m")

It does return the correct results when the dates are the same e.g. start date = 01/01/2006 and end date = 01/04/2006 = 3 months.

BUT when I change the end date to 31/03/2006, it returns as 2 months.

Is there a way around this? I need a more accurate number of months (with no decimal places)
