Counting Number Of Times "name" Appears Across Multiple Sheets 
Counting Number Of Times "name" Appears Across Multiple Sheets  Excel 

Hello, I'm trying to count the number of times a name appears across multiple worksheets but I can't seem to figure it out.
I have 6 sheets to count and all the names are in column A (from A1:A100) on each sheet. The names are not in a particular order.
On sheet 7 I want to have a cell beside each persons name that counts the number of times their name appeared on the other 6 sheets.
For example Sheet 7 (called total) would have
Joe 5 (where 5 is the outcome of the formula I'm looking for to count all the times "Joe" appears on sheets 16).
I have it counting per sheet with =COUNTIF(A1:A130,"name") but this is not quite what I am looking for.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hi,
I need the necessity do delete a sequence of sheets in my workbook.
If I use this code:
With ActiveWorkbook
If .Worksheets.Count >= 5 Then
For n = 5 To .Worksheets.Count
Worksheets(n).Delete
Next n
End If
End With
I receive a confirmation message box with this message:
"Data may exist in the sheet(s) selected for deletion. To permanently delete the data, press Delete" [DELETE] [CANCEL]
I wish to delete all sheets without receiving any message.
Is it possible?
Many thanks in advance for your kind support.

Hello Everybody,
I am hoping for some assistance. Here is what I have....
I am trying to get counts of certain values.
This is in the same workbook but different sheets.
On sheet 1 is where my formula lies. In a cell, I want it to look at sheet 2 column B and look for instances of "A", then I want it to look in the same row it found "A" and look at the value in column "N" and evaluate if there is an amount. If there isn't skip it and don't count it, if there is a value count it if it falls within a given range.
An example of the formula is below...what am I missing?
=COUNTIF(Sheet2!B:B,(VLOOKUP(A,Sheet2!B:N,13,FALSE)=0:500))
=COUNTIF(Sheet2!B:B,(VLOOKUP(A,Sheet2!B:N,13,FALSE)=501:1000))
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I'm trying to come up with a solution to calculate the man hours and days worked over multiple sheets.
I have a file that has 8 sheets. the first seven sheets are the days of the week and the 8th sheet is where I want to calculate the hours.
The days of the week consists of "Name" "Date" Hours"
The 8th sheet consists of "Name", "Days of the week in their own column (7 columns in total)", "Total Hours" and "Total Days Worked"
Now... each day is always a different group and what I'm hoping for is to create a formula that can grab each name with their hours and throw them into the 8th sheet. So when the end of the week is done I have all the Employees weekly hours and days worked all finished.
I hope this makes sense. This file is to track about 100 employees that are on a rotational work schedule.
I have attached a sample file.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi everyone
I need some help in this:
In a excel workbook when I copy a worksheet (to duplicate with other name) there is always a name conflict and so I have to say yes (maintain the name) or say no (and excel ask for other names) many times (sometimes more than 50 times pressing the enter button. Its possible to disable this feature?
My best regards and Thanks in advance.

for example if you have values of
1 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 1
how to count number of occurances where value of 1 is 3 consecutive times? Obviously answer is 3 in this instance but is there an excel formula to count/sum this?
Thanks in advance
1 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 1

Is it possible to apply a filter to multiple sheets within the same Excel workbook, using the same filter criteria?
For example, suppose you have tables of data on 3 different tabs, all having the same headings. Suppose one of the headings is "gender". If you apply a filter to the table on Sheet 1, to only show the rows containing the word "female", is it possible to have the tables on Sheets 2 and 3 automatically update to only show the "female" rows? Or would you have to manually update the filter criteria in Sheets 2 and 3?

I have never really used VBA and so am completely stuck at this problem. I need to create a macro which autopopulates a master worksheet from the individual user sheets in a shared workbook.
Sheet 1 is the master sheet "Team Stats". There will be an undetermined number of individual worksheets to accomodate new staff.
Each worksheet will be identical, using columns AI with row 1 having the headings:
Date, Name, Reference, Value, Price, Age, Purchased?, Destination, Add. Products (the last 3 columns will have a dropdown list which will be used to enter data into the cell).
There will be a varying number of rows in each of the individual sheets.
If possible I would like the macro to run every time data is entered into one of the individual worksheets. If this is not then it would be fien to update every time the workbook is opened.
If anyone can help it would really cut down the time I spend collating these stats every day!

Hello,
Is there a way to create a second worksheet that is based on data from an original sheet that will automatically update when you ADD ROWS to the original sheet?
Linking values between sheets is easy... but I need to be able to set a designated area on my A sheet that I can add rows into which will automatically be added to my B sheet.
Does anyone know of a function that I can apply for this?

Hello
I'm quite experienced Excel user. I've never come across this problem but tinkering in every conceivable way within Excel settings and the solution has eluded me.
I have added a worksheet created elsewhere (it is a form I need printing, with the data coming from 2 sheets I have created from scratch) which has pre formatted cells for Date and Client Name etc.
When I try to reference the cell in this added sheet from my 2 sheets, instead of the result, it always displays the formula, not the result.
I have tried doing it from one of my sheets to reference to this new, and that displays the result and not formula. I can't imagine why it's doing this and I've never seen it happen before.
Formatting cells, giving cells names rather than the usually adequate of reference to the Cell Number doesn't change things. I wonder if I've picked up some legacy protection from the original form but can't see anywhere in the tools etc that's obvious.
There's about 50+ cells that need referencing and I got to get this done for work.
Please help me. This is my first need to post on a Excel Forum as I've always found help or answers from other peeps or internet but this one is making me scratch my head big time.

Hi all.
I have set up a workbook that is sent out to lots of different users. They each keep and use their own copy.
I have set it up so that everything looks OK and is visible on MY screen, but I'm conscious that some users may have different screen sizes, different toolbars set up, and so on, which might make some parts not immediately visible to them.
I have set up an autoexecute macro which automatically sets the zoom factor to best fit, for several of the worksheets, and this works fine.
Here's the code that does it.
Code:
By repeating this code for each worksheet, I can make each one be zoomed just right.
However, the file contains 8 sheets that are all identically laid out, except the number of rows is different.
What I want to do is go to the worksheet that has the largest number of rows (it's always the same worksheet, so I know which one it is), set the zoom factor for THAT worksheet (which I can do, and it always has the same number of rows), and then take THAT zoom factor, whatever it is  and it will vary depending on the user  and apply that to the other worksheets that have a similar layout.
I could just go through each worksheet and zoom it automatically, but that would mean that some of the sheets looked very large, others very small, and I'd like them to have a consistent appearance.
I could also specify a range on each worksheet that was similar to the appropriate range on the longest worksheet, and zoom that automatically, but that's not ideal either, because some of the row heights vary from sheet to sheet, and again I'll end up with different font sizes.
Anyone know how to do this ?

Hello,
I have two columns of data: column A contains the date and time in the form dd/mm/yyyy. Column B contains a number value. All the times are in order, so column A looks like:
01/01/2007
02/01/2007
03/01/2007
I have data from 2007 to 2010. I need to calculate an average daily value (in column B) for each month, and display it in column C. So, for January, I need to calculate the average of 31 days, February, 28 days, etc.
Is there a function I can use to do this? I've been trying the AVERAGEIF formula but can't get it to work. Any ideas would be much appreciated!
Many thanks,
Caitlin

On my calculator, if I divide 462,534.05 by 335 I get 1,380.70. Then if I times 1,380.70 by 335 I get 462,534.50. Which is what I need it to be because I need to calculate the difference of a figure not dividing equally.
On excel, if I divide 462,534.05 by 335 I get 1,380.70. Then if I times 1,380.70 by 335 I get the SAME result of 462,534.05.
I have to account for the difference of not dividing equally so there is some format or accounting function that's preset that I don't want but I have no idea how to fix it or format my excel sheet to calculate as my calculator would.
Please can someone help? Thanks!

This is probably an easy question for most of you, but it's killing me. I tried searching before I posted this, but the suggestions given didn't seem to work for me.
I need to look up data from a cell on one Excel sheet, compare it to a list on a 2nd sheet and when they equal, take a value from a different column on the 2nd sheet and drop it back on the 1st sheet. Since that's a horrible explanation, let me try explaining it this way:
Sheet 1
Column A has a long list of code type 1s
Column E has a long list of code type 2s
Sheet 2
Cell C2 has code 1
Cell E2 needs code 2
I know it should take an index/match function, but nothing I try is working. What I'm trying is the following formula in Cell E2 of sheet 2:
=INDEX('Sheet 1'!A:A,MATCH(C2,'Sheet 1"!E:E,0),5)
But all I get is no result. What's driving me bonkers is that if I copy everything over to a single sheet, that formula works fine.

Hey there,
I have been tasked with introducing userforms into an excel sheet and tbh I'm quite amazed that excel has this capability of adding userforms to excel sheets.
Anyway, I have 2 columns of data in an excel sheet and I wish to add this to a userform so that the userform displays the 2 columns beside each other with headings, like a table. The user should then be able to select a particular row and insert it into the specified cell.
I would also like the user to select a row on the table and then be able to bring up another table depending on the row selected...basically so that the user can draw deeper into the information that they require.
I have an example excel sheet where I have 2 sheets. One sheet is the user entry sheet called User Entry Screen. the next sheet is the tables sheet where my tables are held. Once the user selects the cell shown in the example sheet, it should then bring up the user form. the user then, depending on which item clicked, then gets shown the next window with a table and info on it. then user should then be able to select an item and the cells on the user entry screen would then get populated.
Personally I think this is a really tricky challenge and any help with doing this would be extremely appreciated.
I'll post up further comments as I am trying to work my way through it!
Thanks,
Jag

Good afternoon!
I'm working with Excel 2003 sp 3 on Windows xp.
I have been banging my head trying to jar loose the formula to calculate man days where 1 equals 8 hours. I have one that was given to me by a coworker:
=INT(Q3/8)+(((Q3/8)(INT(Q3/8)))*0.8)
That calculates man days from total hours. I need a formula that will total man days and return the man day answer. Example:
weekending 12/25 = 16.2 which is 16 man days and 2 hours
weekending 1/1 = 24.7 which is 24 man days and 7 hours
Total = 41 man days and 1 hour
I have also been asked if there was a way for a number to be entered into a spreadsheet and automatically put in order without a macro or "pushing a button".
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Happy New Year!

Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and have been using excel for about 3 years. I have learned alot but still can not figure out how to make numbers add up in one box like a running total. Meaning, If I have a list and in the list is one cell for each item say like cell a1 is for a can of coke and cell a2 is for a car tire and so on,and i want to keep a running total by adding a number to cell a1 or a2 like say "3 i.e. 3 tires or cans of coke" and later that day i come back and need to add 2 more ......so i want to be able to just click on the cell a1 or a2 and enter the number 2 and the cell would add the number in it to the number im adding to it to show a result of 5 tires or whatever. I am sorry If i am not asking the question in an understandable manor but its the best way I can think to ask it.lol anyways, any help would be appreciated, Thanks in advance.

i have a worksheet with formulas in 15,000 cells; i have set the calculation to maunal so that you have to press F9 to calculate the sheet. \
sometimes, it takes 45 seconds to calc the whole sheet, other times, it takes 5 minutes. how do i clear the cache, or what do i have to do so that it calcs 45 seconds each time.
i don't want the application to think, it would be better if those 15,000 cells can be returned in a fractionofasecond. any ideas/tips? thanks.

Hi there, longtime user firsttime poster. Looking for some help as I am a nonexpert with macros. Here's what I'm trying to do:
We have to submit things to a certain regulatory body and we usually enter tasks in as soon as they come, do the submission, and then keep a record of that submission.
So, I have a workbook with two sheets, one is "TO DO", the other is "ARCHIVE". Both sheets have the same columns and everything. I am looking for a macro that will automatically cut a (row) from the TO DO sheet and paste it in into the ARCHIVE sheet once it is done, then delete the cut row from the TO DO list so it stays topped up.
The trigger for archiving is the columns M and N which are titled "Complete ?" and each has a validation drop down that says "YES". When both cells in columns M and N have the YES in them, I would like the macro to make the above mentioned actions.
I ran a search on the forums and found something similar, but not quite what I was looking for.
