Count Total Data

Hi Experts,

I would like to request Experts help. How to count number of data that were displayed at Column C automatically at cell E3 when search result displayed at SearchData. Hope Experts could help me to create this feature. I have attached the workbook with sample data for Experts to get better view.

Put this on cell E3:

=COUNTA(B5:B)

Let's see if I understand your question. You just want to count how many "types" appear on column B of sheet SearchData and put the value on cell E3, right?

@jppinto, when I run this, I get a 1 as a result. Did you test that?

Cartillo,

maybe something like this:

=COUNTIF(B:B,"*"&E2&"*")

Try this

Dim row, col, counter As Integer
Dim searchstr As String
searchstr = Sheet1.Cells(2, 5)

col = 2
row = 5
counter = 0

While Sheet1.Cells(row, col) <> ""

    If InStr(CStr(Sheet1.Cells(row, col)), searchstr) > 0 Then
        counter = counter + 1
    End If
    row = row + 1
Wend

Sheet1.Cells(3, 5) = counter
0

@s___k,

there is absolutely no need to use VBA if the same can be accomplished with a formula. A native Excel formula will always be way faster than VBA, especially when the code loops through a range.

The formula I suggested does exactly the same as your code, but more efficiently. Even if the brief was to use VBA (which it isn't), it would be more efficient to use a Worksheet Function statement instead of looping through all populated cells in column B.

teylyn, I've tested when I only had one "type" on column B, so I was getting 1 on cell E3. When I've tested now with more results, I still got 1 :) So the formula could be changed to:

=COUNTA(B:B)-1

This way it works.

The way I read the question is that E3 should display a count of all cells in column B that contain the text string in E2.

My suggestion does that.

jppinto's suggestion will count all text cells in column B minus one, regardless of their content.

Cartillo, please explain the requirements in a bit more detail.

cheers, teylyn

That's why I asked the author to explain what he wants. Either mine works for what he wants, or teylyn's formula works if he wants another thing...Let's wait to see what the author has to say.
