Question about Microsoft Excel for PC

Excel counting I have excel data containing community health services. Column A contains dates and column B contains different venues (other columns hold different health checks). Basically I want to count the number of occurences of a health service between two dates (which I have no problem with using sumif (for date1) less sumif (for date 2). My problem is I want a third condition to be met ... I want to know between those two dates AND for a particular venue ...

    Thank you. I knew that was an option and but I was trying to get it to work easily with a simple (hidden) formula ...



    What I ended up doing was inserting a column, using the eomonth function to change the dates to the last day of the month and concatenating with the venue such that I could use sumif (and countif) for each of a multiple of columns.



    I am intending to try pivot tables to see if the spreadsheets could be more user friendly for non-spreadsheet users.



    Thank you for your response

Merge 2 columns with 550 cells each all at once?


Merging Columns In Excel Now that we've clarified what merging columns actually means, we can explore how to do it. The first step is to perform the merge for the first cells. Let's go back to our first example and suppose that we are merging column A that contains first names with column B that contains second names. We'll put the merged columns into column C. To merge cell A1 with cell B1 we woul type the following into cell C1:=A1&" "&B1


paste this into C1 (or where needed)
=A1&" "&B1

Autosuggest Possible to use in Excel


As long as your list in Excel is formatted without missing cells in column format with a header in the cell directly above your first list time. i/e if your list is in Column A and you have 500 entries, I am assuming Cell C1 is the column header, and cell C501 is the last item of your list.

An easier way to view items similar would be to go to Data/ Filter and automatic filter.

In the arrow or list format in Cell c1 - select custom, in the pop up box you can filter the contains to highlight smaller elements of your list.

Input data


If you want to transfer your data into SAS, SPSS, or some other program, follow these guidelines:
The cells in Row 1 should contain the column's eventual data set name. Each name should be a relatively short and unique acronym that clearly identifies the data. It should begin with a letter and contain only letters, numbers, or an underscore ( _ ) where spaces would naturally fall. Avoid using special characters such as $, &, @, in variable names. Since each row represents the values from one subject, the first column(s) should contain one or more variables that give each subject a unique identifier. They become especially important if you need to merge two or more data files.
In Excel, data formats are defined for a range of cells rather than for a complete column. For this reason it is important that each entire column, including cells with missing or uncollected data, have one, and only one, format. Actually, you do not need to format the entire column, only the portion you will eventually use. Highlight that portion and select the appropriate format from the Format/Cells option. Do not select formats that will enter commas, dollar signs, or other visual enhancements. Numeric, text, and date formats (e.g. mm/dd/yy is often a good choice) are probably the only formats you'll ever need.
The "Split" option (under the "Window" pull-down menu) keeps the row of variable names and the columns of identifiers in view, whatever range of cells in the worksheet you may need to review. First place the cursor at the most extreme upper left-hand corner where data entry begins (e.g., the intersection of Row 2 and the column in the upper left-hand corner where data appear) and then select "Split" from this menu. For any row or column of the worksheet you move to, you'll know exactly which variables you are observing (column names) and their associated ID values (rows).
For versions of Excel later than 4.0, one file can contain multiple worksheets. By default, the tabs at the bottom of these sheets are supplied names ("sheet1," "sheet2," etc.). You can change these names by clicking this space with your mouse and entering a new name. Use the same conventions for first-row variable names: use a short acronym of the page contents that begins with a letter, use only letters or numbers, and enter the underscore ( _ ) where a space naturally falls.

Cannot insert columns in excel spreadsheet. Comes up with error cannot shift object off sheet


This error message occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • The option Nothing (hide objects) is selected in the Display options for this workbook section in the Excel Options dialog box.
  • You create an object, such as a cell comment, in any cell in a column.
  • You try to hide the column to the left of the column that contains the object, the column that contains the object, or all the columns to the right side of the column that contains the object. Or, in some cases, you try to insert a row or column in the worksheet.
There are two ways to fix this problem.
Method 1:  Temporarily toggle the option from "Nothing (hide objects)" to All In Excel 2007, temporarily toggle the option from Nothing (hide objects) to All, and then insert the rows or columns as needed. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. In the upper-left corner of the Excel window, click the Microsoft Office button.
  2. At the bottom of the menu, click Excel Options.
  3. Click Advanced from list of options on the left.
  4. Scroll down to the Display options for this workbook section, and then click All under For objects, show:, and then click OK.
Notes To use the keyboard shortcut to toggle this selection, press CTRL+6. 
If these steps do not let you hide rows or columns or insert rows or columns in Excel 2007, try the steps in method 2.
Method 2: Change the position property of the object to Move and size with cells To work around this issue, Excel 2003, Excel 2002, and Excel 2000, change the position property of the object to Move and size with cells. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. If the object is a cell comment, select the cell that contains the comment, right-click the cell, and then click Show Comment or Show/Hide Comments. Note This makes the comment visible.
  2. Move the pointer to the edge of the object until the pointer changes into a white arrow with four small black arrows on the pointer. Then, click the object to select it.
  3. In Excel 2003 and earlier version of Excel, click <object name> on the Format menu. Note In this menu command, <object name> is the name of the object, such as "Comment" or "AutoShape."  In Excel 2007, click Format <object name>.
  4. In the Format dialog box, click the Properties tab.
  5. Click Move and size with cells, and then click OK.
  6. If you want to hide the cell comment again, right-click the cell that contains the comment, and then click Hide Comment.
  7. Follow these steps for each object in the affected column as described in the "Cause" section. When you hide the columns, you do not receive the error message.

If function in exel


For Current Date - you can use the =Now() function in your cell where you want the date.

For Contract #, I don't know what you're using, but you can link to a database of contract #s (see below), or you can name a range like current contract #, which gets updated by 1 each time you add another contract, which then is automatically posted on your EXCEL



DGET(database,field,criteria)
Database is the range of cells that makes up the list or database. A database is a list of related data in which rows of related information are records, and columns of data are fields. The first row of the list contains labels for each column.
Field indicates which column is used in the function. Enter the column label enclosed between double quotation marks, such as "Age" or "Yield," or a number (without quotation marks) that represents the position of the column within the list: 1 for the first column, 2 for the second column, and so on.
Criteria is the range of cells that contains the conditions that you specify. You can use any range for the criteria argument, as long as it includes at least one column label and at least one cell below the column label in which you specify a condition for the column.

Duplicacy in excel sheet


Since you are searching the data by the phone number , first select all the data in the spreadsheet and sort it in ascending order by the phone number.
Then, assuming you have 5 columns of data A through E, and the phone numbers are in column E, with row 1 occupied by column headings, use the following formula in cell F2=IF(E2=E1,"Duplicate",1)

Drag this formula down column F till the end of your data
Select the entire data and do an auto filter
In column F filter the data by Duplicate and delete all these rows
What remains should be unique data
