I am looking for a formula to show me how many words I have left to write by my deadline for my novel. Currently this is the formula I have been using. =P5/(F5-TODAY()) P5 is the number of total words I have left F5 is the deadline date.
The problem with this one is that it tells me how many words I have left not counting today. I want the words I need to reach today not tomorrow.
I have a template to sheet here if you want to look at it. [URL]....
At my company I work with a lot of text-filled Excel files. In order to get a proper word count we're currently using the primitive method of "paste into Word and run a word count". I'd like to be able to do this from within Excel, and I found the macro below but have run into a snag.
The problem I have is that it ignores carriage returns and count the last word in the first line and the first word in the following line as one word. In the files I work with this can throw off the count by thousands of words. So if I run this macro against a cell containing a single text string:
<My name is Amejin and I like pizza and beer> - 10 words
The macro reads it as: <My name is Amejin andI like pizza and beer> - 9 words
So, essentially I need a method of changing carriage returns into spaces so that the macro will return the proper count.
I've have two cell with data as below: CELL1: X1, X2, X5, X7, X8, X12 CELL2: X2, X5, X12
My question: 1. using macro to identify different data in the cell using color (for same data will be blue and different data will be red). 2. How to count the word in the cell (sample CELL1: after count will become 6 words)
I have a spreadsheet I am working on which lists a bunch of equipment. In column A I have a list of the equipment, and in column B I have a list either saying the equipment is Free or the name of who is borrowing it.
I would like to know how to calculate the total amount of 'Free' values in Column B and display the number of occurances in a cell somewhere so I anyone who opens the document can see that there are 5 Items free, and hopefully it auto-calculates each time a value is changed in Column B from Free to who ever is borrowing that item.

so that the columns would have as their results 6 west unrulu 7 #1234 easrlr
Is there a way of counting how many rows have cells containing a specific word. Some rows will have multiple cells with the word in and some will have none. I only want a count of the number of rows and not the number of times the word appears. How can i acheive this with VBA?
I am after the formula to count the occurrence of, for instance the word 'the' in a sentence/paragraph that is contained in Cell A1. Cell B1 should return the quantity of times the word 'the' has been found in Cell A1.
I am using a count if to look at a column C in a worksheet a and return how many time the word 'on test' occurs. This is then returned to a table in another worksheet. I have 5 worksheets in total with the same columns, how can I do multiple countif - so that it will count all the 'on test' in column C for all 5 sheets.
Is there a way to count each cell that does not have the word "Mainframe" in it? This counts each cell that has "Mainframe", but I want to count each field that does not have Mainframe in it. =SUMPRODUCT(Isnumber(Search("Mainframe",D2:D499))*(I2:I499=O51))
Is it possible to export Excel cell contents to Word fields in a protected Word document? For example...
What code would be needed to tell Excel to open up, copy and export the contents of A2 in the active sheet of a workbook to "Field 2" in a Word document named "Report 01" and then put the contents of B2 to "Field 2" etc?
Do both applications have to be opened up at the same time or is Excel able to open up Word on its own? Will the macro be able to....
1. Automatically open up the correct Word document?
2. Look ONLY in a certain folder for the "Report 01" Word document?
Bring up a "selection" box that allows you to select the document you wish Excel to export it's data to?
3. Close and save the Word Document without any user intervention?
