#### Unique entries based on condition - count distinct

```Hi,

I'm really struggling with what I thought should be easy.

A                  B                           C
D
branch       salesperson           transaction num          Item code

I'm trying to the number of unique saples people in each branch, the number
of unique tranactions by each sales person, and the number of unique items
in each transaction.

In another program I use "Count Distinct" but am struggling to acheieve the
same in excel. Any ideas?

```Try these array formulae

=SUM(N(FREQUENCY(IF(A1:A100="branch",MATCH(B1:B100&"",B1:B100&"",0)),MATCH(B1:B100&"",B1:B100&"",0))>0))

SUM(N(FREQUENCY(IF(B1:B100="salesperson",MATCH(C1:C100&"",C1:C100&"",0)),MATCH(C1:C100&"",C1:C100&"",0))>0))

etc.

conditional summing of arrays
I would like to sumproduct 2 arrays up to the row where it first exceeds a given number. For example assume 2 arrays are as follows : 1,2,3,4,5 & 2,3,4,5,6 the sumproduct is 2,8,20,40,70. So if my given number was say 30, the answer would be 4. if the number was say 80, the result would be NA. Can anyone help me with this problem?

Conditional format to cells containing a #DIV/0! error
I would like to apply a conditional format to an entire spreadsheet. In particular, if a cell returns and error such as #DIV/0! I would the selected font color to be white. What do I have to enter in the conditional formatting menu? If I set the value of the cell equal to #DIV/0!, the format does not work. A solution that I found could be to use the GoTo functions to select the cells with errors and then manually apply the color, but since I am creating a template at a later point the empty cells that return the divided by zero error may contain a number. Basically I would like the cells t...

'advanced filter/unique values only' inaccurate counts
i often have to use filters to reduce a column of numbers to just it's unique values. simple enough, but unfortunately excel's advanced filter doesn't always do the job and leaves out values or just doesn't filter correctly. i'm hoping there's a simple explanation for this and the filter can be made more reliable. any thoughts? The filters are reliable, so there may be a problem with the data. For example, a space at the end of a text string can cause two cells that look the same to be extracted by the filter. Perhaps you can give an example of what's left out, ...

How do I find the series associated with a given legend entry.
I have a problem, whereby I need to find the association between a legend entry and a chart series (in order that I can do something with the legend entry for a specific series if it exists). I cannot find a way to establish a firm link between a series and its legend, for instance: The chart has 5 series. The legend had 5 series but the user (or something/somebody) deleted 2 of these legend entries so there are 3 legend entries. So, at this point lets say I have code which has a specific series in its hand: Excel.Series series = _chart.Series(3); And with this series I want to del...

alpha-sort list where each entry contains more than one line
How do I alpha-sort a list where each entry contains more than one line? For example, a person's name (line 1) and his organizational affiliation (line 2)? Each technique I try sorts each and every line, so the person gets separated from his organization and the alpha-list is meaningless. The easiest workaround is to use Ctrl-H (Find and Replace) to convert your multi-pagraph entries into single paragraphs. Assuming that each entry has certain similar line headings (Name, Organization, Address, etc.), you could search for "^pOrganization" and replace all occurrenc...

Specifying source campaign in Opp., not counting as campaign respo
General usage question regarding campaigns. If we create a campaign, then specify that campaign as the source campaign for an opportunity, that opportunity/account is not then listed as a response to that campaign. So when we run a Campaign Performance report, no responses are listed. Do you have to use the normal method of entering a response within the campaign? I'd think that if you can associate a campaign within the opportunity, that linkage would reflect in a Campaign Performance report. Thanks!! ...

Compare two lists of data to find new entries

My aim is to compare the report (which is in excel) from one day with the new report to show the new 'activities'. In simple terms I want to say if activity 'x' is in the new list the show the information from that row on a new worksheet so I can see at a glance the new activities. How about an alternative?

Conditional Formatting in data table of a chart
I'm using Excel 2007, and trying to apply conditional formatting to the data table of a line chart. I've tried creating the chart without the formatting applied to cells with the original data (data source), and then applying the format to the source; as well as creating the chart after applying the format to the source. The data table in the chart will naturally update with changed data since it is linked, but will not incorporate any style formatting. Any thought? Thanks. Data tables in charts are not particularly flexible. They do not, for example, support conditional fo...
