# Find Most Frequently Occurring Or Repetitive Value In Range

May 9, 2008

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]))

## Find And Highlight Most Frequently Occurring Number

Feb 5, 2012

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?

## Most Frequently Occurring Text - When There Is More Than One Most Frequent

Aug 16, 2012

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.

## Macro To Display Top 5 Most Frequently Occurring Part Numbers

Mar 17, 2014

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).

## Find Most Occurring Values In Column A And Consolidating Each Value Quantity?

Jun 12, 2014

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 Most Common Occurring String Based On Lookup Value?

Dec 4, 2013

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?

## Returning Most Occurring Text In A Range

Jun 6, 2014

Store 1
Store 2
Store 3
Store 4
Top Selling
Second
Third
Fourth

[code]....

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.

## Count Most Frequently Occuring

Dec 2, 2006

I 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.

## Determining When Event Occurs Most Frequently?

Dec 3, 2013

I 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.

## Bar Chart Conditional Formatting - Values Changing Frequently

Jan 8, 2014

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.

## Retrieve Next Occurring Value?

Jan 19, 2009

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.

## Repetitive Printing

Mar 25, 2007

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.

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?

## Repetitive Task - Different Output?

Nov 6, 2013

I need a macro in a excel for the below scenario:

1)i have merged cells from A1:B3

2)if i click on a macro the output in the above cells should be as follows"

3)if i run the same macro for the 2nd time the output should be:

"Are you done with the reporting?"

4)if i run for 3rd time the output should be:

"Logoff from database"

5)Say example if i run the same macro for 1o times i should get 10 different outputs....if i run for the 11th time the output should get repeat from 1st....

6)Output need not be in order....random also fine...

If possible gimme 2 different codes:

1)Output should be in the order wise from 1-10 and get started from1 again

2)Output should be random....

## Count Non-zero Items Occurring Between 2 Known Dates

Feb 12, 2014

For 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"

## IF Function For Last Occurring Unique Cases?

Mar 26, 2014

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.

## Selecting Nth Row Number Of Repetitive Value In Array

Mar 25, 2012

I want to find the row position in an array.

1 200 CAR 001
2 230 CAR 002
3 400 TRUCK 001
4 200 BUS 001
5 250 CAR 003
6 250 BUS 002
7 200 BUS 003
8 730 CAR 004

in 4th column it should say that this is "n"th position of 3rd column value.

ex.
in 4th row 3rd column 1st "BUS" appears. hence column 4 is 1
in 6th row 3rd column 2nd "BUS" appears. hence column 4 is 2
in 7th row 3rd column 3rd "BUS" appears. hence column 4 is 3

tell me how to automate this

## Net Present Worth Of Repetitive Costs?

Apr 12, 2013

I am going to convert different costs during life time of a product to Net Present Worth (NPW), consisting Maintenance and Rehabilitation costs (M&Rj) and Salvage Value (SV), according to the following formula: [URL] .......

SV occurs only once at the end of life time, it's NPW in Excel can be calculated as following:

=PV(i discount, AP,0, SV,1)

But M&Rj costs occurs J time during life cycle, and formulating manually their mathematical formula most times takes much time. Exactly what should I write in the cell to get their total NPW? In other words, how can I get the following formula by Excel functions: [URL] .......

Reminder: NPW= FV( 1/(1+i Discount))^n
FV: future value
i Discount: discount rate
n: numbers of years (periods)

## Repetitive Task - Looping With Variables

Jan 17, 2014

I have a repetitive task that needs to loop effectively. The only things that change each time are the start Columns ("C:C") next moves to ("D:D"), this then continues down the different columns, until it reaches the end of the columns.

The other thing that changes is the formula initially it starts at RC[-1]&"",""&RC[1]. Next time the numbers will be plus one, so RC[-2]&"",""&RC[2].

The last thing that moves is the "B1:B" & LR on the next step will move to "C1:C" & LR.

Basically a loop with variables in the loop. Is this possible? Below is the code I have begun to write but I could be writing this for ever, over and over again.

Code:
LR = Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row

Columns("B:B").Insert Shift:=xlToRight, CopyOrigin:=xlFormatFromLeftOrAbove
Range("B1").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=RC[-1]&"",""&RC[1]"
Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("B1:B" & LR)

[Code] .......

## Stop #REF! Occurring When Changing Spreadsheet

Jun 3, 2008

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).
