Solved: Problem with CountIF comparing columns of names

Q: Solved: Problem with CountIF comparing columns of names


I'm working on a comparison of 1 list of mixed names against a list of first names and a list of last names.

When I put in this: =COUNTIF(Sheet2!A2:A36,"Jackie") it works

When I put in this: =COUNTIF(Sheet2!A2:A36,A154) it does not work

I much prefer to be able to set up the formula, with an absolute range, and autofill.

I have tried using Text and General formats for the columns and this doesn't seem to make a difference.

I appreciate your help.

Solved: one list had a space at the end of each name, so the match was not exact e.g. "Jackie " vs "Jackie"

I have a spreadsheet that I wish to compare 2 columns and bring the information from the 3rd. For example, if A6 is equal to an item in G1:G98, then the number in B6 should equal the corresponding number in H1:h98. The formula I used is =VLOOKUP(A8,$G$1:$H$98,2,FALSE) It works great except the problem I have is sometimes there is no corresponding value in G1:G98. In that case I would like it to enter the number 0.

First, thank you all for you time and knowledge in advance.

Here's my situation. I'm working with file that is sent to me with populated information, in this example Col A
What I would like to do is enter information in Col B and then do a comparison of both A and B, letting me know if something in Col B is not in Col A and also is something in Col A not in Col B.

I need to know if what was sent to my in the spread sheet match what I physically inventoried.

I have provided an example.

Hopefully I did not over complicate my request.

Is there an easy way to only count instances where two columns have two different values?

Example: I want to count instances where Column A = "Test" AND Column B = "Evaluate". If either column is not equal to that value, it doesn't get counted, even if the other column is correct.

Then to check it has worked properly i used the SUM function to tally the numbers next to the names, however for some reason the tally adds up to 248... 6 more than there are names in the list!

A:Solved: Excel 2007 Countif problem

What you have to keep in mind is the fact that if you use Countif as you have doen, every you also count double

Jim 3
Albert 2
John 1
Jim 3
Jim 3
Albert 2

So if you tally this you get 13 instead of 6 becasue Jim is counted 3 times and Albert 2

You must only create a list of unique names for one column at a time
The combination you have of Advisor and manager is the problem.

Create One column with Unique advisors and one with unique managers indenpendant of each other.

I have an Access 2003 table (Table1) with four fields:
Amount (number, single format, 3 decimal places)
Add (number, single format, 3 decimal places)
Calc (number, single format, 3 decimal places)
Test (number, single format, 3 decimal places)

There is one record:

The first query updates the "Test" field by [Amount]*[Add] with the result that the test field now contains the value 40.84

Then I run a query to find records where [Test]<>[Calc] and it returns the record even though the values in the two fields are equal.

Help! Please???

A:Solved: problem with access 2003 calculation comparing values

What does the record say when you run the 2nd query?

When I run the second query, I get a 0 for the first record (using the info you listed). I added in a few records of my own and got -1. If I'm not mistaken the 0 means False/No and the -1 means True/Yes. So the 0 means that no records match [Test]<>[Calc] and the -1 means that records match [Test]<>[Calc].

Either way please explain more so I can get a better handle on what you are looking for.

Hi there,
Looking at your code I get lost along the way, but if the filename is to be a number then you have to make sure you also allocate is as a string.
The way I do it when I'm coding with vba is using the right() function. I came accross this when looking for some code

Let's say:

x = 3
and my filename in this case will always be 8 characters long then I do it as follows:

fname = right("00000000" & x, 8)

The answer is 00000008

if x = 42

the result is 00000042

Maybe this will help to point you in th the right way.

A:Solved: Excel 2003 - COUNTIF() Date Comparison

The syntax for countif is =Countif(range,test)

Range should be a range of cells, your formula will at most return 1 if O73 < today.
If you want to count all the ones between O1 and O100 you'd put O1:O100 in the place of range.

Test works on the cell being inspected automatically so you don't need to repeat the cell. What you do need is quote marks (not parentheses) around the criteria. For example to count the numbers in O1 to O100 whose value is less than 4 you'd write =countif(O1:O100,"<4")

Because Today() is itself a function it doesn't go within the quotes. It is joined to the less than sign by an ampersand. So in your particular case you'd want

I found 'diff' extremely usefull in programming, so I was always curious if there was an equivalent program that would allow me to edit my term papers, proposals, presentations, etc. using some editor other than vi (!!!)

Somehow, I never managed to find an answer until recently. I thought I might as well share what I learned, so here it is:

In Word 2000, go to tools -> track changes -> compare documents.

Hello all. I have 2 spreadsheets which contain subscription information for 2 different products costing £21.58 and £5.96. I'm trying to merge this information so that if Mr A in spreadsheet 1 is shown as subscribing to Product B and the same person in spreadsheet 2 is shown as subscribing to Product C, an additional column shows in spreadsheet 1 so that it then appears as: Mr A - £21.58 - £5.96

If not, the columns would show Mr A - £21.58 - 0 (or blank) etc

The code for VLOOKUP is straight-forward but only returns the first row. I need it to reference every row and cross-reference the data.

I'm using Windows 7 and Excel 2010. I've attached a small example though the actual spreadsheet has around 3000 rows. I only need to do this once to get a single file up and running.

Any ideas

Many thanks

Just wondering whether a VBA file would better serve the purpose. Please look at the attached file. Many, many thanks for the kind help. (Running Excel 2003 on an XP- SP3 machine.)

Hi All,

I need an help in finding out duplicates values in two different columns. Like for example i have Column A and COlumn B , suppose if any value in Column B if its available in Column A then i need to update as "1" in column C. How i can do that in access. Becuase i tried to give the criteria as "Column A = COlumn B" but this is not working effectively. Find some samples below;

Column AColumn BColumn C1111245658796565879657896524789652456977455697745564789656478965202786520278647008874700887419898841989883697090369709031951913195191168949526932931187597219139468569851689495123456511875977899555568569854557899

In this example the second row value in Col A is available as first row value in COl B , in this case i need to update as "1" in col C in second row.

I have a macro that performs a sorting function and the data in column "I" gets pasted into columns J,K,L once it is separated and sorted. The issue is that I have existing data in those columns.
I figured that If I add to the macro that already exists a command to add three columns to the right of "I" this would fix my issue...yes?no?maybe?
I have been googling to find insert macros, but they all seem to be weird ones (e.g. insert a column every 96 cells etc.)

I decided to hide the first couple of columns in the spreadsheet. But for some reason I can't get them back. I tried selecting the first visible column, the whole spreadsheet, the View menu. Nothing. The columns won't unhide. And yes I need their data.

For the record, hiding and then unhiding works fine when it's not the first column.

I am really new to Excel (2003) and have read several similar posts to mine below; but cannot adapt the existing programming to accomplish the task. I wish to convert a data in “Book A” to appear like that of “Book B”
This will be an almost daily repetitive task. Please refer to the attachment. Thanks for looking. Any thoughts on the subject will be greatly appreciated.

When I attempt to insert a column or a row, I'm getting a message from MS Excel:
"Cannot shift objects off sheet".
Can someone advise me as to what I must do to correct this?
Also, what have I done to cause this to happen?
Thank you for your help.

A:Solved: Inserting Columns or Rows

hi floydcojacket,

I think this is connected with your earlier issue with cell comments.

I'm now sure you must have your Advanced Options, Display Options for this Workbook- Display Objects set to Hide.

That option is in the next block below the Display options for Comments.

In Sheet one I have some raw data which in sheet two I have picked out the useful pieces and Fill another across sheet in move rows to Excel I problem. need columns have then input into out work forms The problem is that I need to fill the form across column but in the sheet that it is referenced from I need it to take the data from the row EX sheet one a b c a b c a b c a b c I Excel problem. Fill columns I need to move across rows in another sheet need to find a way to automatically get it to do this referencing sheet in column A and then filling to the right but actually having it go down the rows in sheet sheet a b c a a a b b b c c c the idea is that when the software exports to sheet we will be able to print sheet two in the form we need it without having to make any changes I know my explanation is a little crude but if someone could help me I would appreciate it thanks nbsp

I noticed recently that my system and other folder names have changed on their own! What the -h- happened? I have never seen anything like this before. These folders appear on all of my drives c:, d:, g: and they are random. It looks like they are of another language, maybe? Actually, the wording makes no sense at all...> It looks like most of these folders previously existed.

Things I have done: Ran Anti-V program + Ewido Suite = No viruses, trojans, malware, etc. Ran three adware programs (ad-aware, spywareblaster, spyware doctor) = Clear. Checked all running processes and startup tab in mscofig = no peculiar programs detected. Ran regseeker = Phenominal amount of invalid keys, etc. (3,000+) very unusual to the norm!!!

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Can anyone point me in the right direction? Using office 2003
I have a list of about 200, 7 digit random site ID numbers and each one has a corresponding access code of 4 digits.
What I want is to put them all onto one page to print and have an easy reference. I can do it manually cutting and pasting into tables but every week, 2 or 3 new sites get added to the list so I have to manually edit each column and it in turn puts the format of the table off.
Is there a way to do a 'wrap' as in 'word wrap' on a text doc so the column would move down and the last entry would wrap up to the top of the next column?

thanks in advance

A:Solved: multiple columns on one page for printing

Hi arrrgh2003,

Isn't this simply using Columns in WORD (Format / Columns), then if you copy and paste the whole of your source into it, it will format into the no of columns you have created.

My dad pitched me this question to pose to the board membership Start All Three - Solved: Menu All Seeing Programs Columns He s running Windows XP on the desktop computer and he s got quite an extensive collection of programs after a good number of years now The problem is that when he accesses the Solved: Seeing All Three Columns - Start Menu All Programs Start Menu and selects All Programs the column menus now extend to three columns The Solved: Seeing All Three Columns - Start Menu All Programs difficulty is that the far right most column is not completely visible on the screen now Given my dad s fairly advanced age I m afraid that modifying the screen resolution setting is really not an option Exclusive of some well-intentioned suggestion to pare down the number of programs on the All Programs menus that s not going to happen are there any other suggestions or fixes circulating that would somehow reorient the All Programs columns when they pulldown And selecting the option to only display recent programs on the All Programs menu is also probably not an option nbsp
