Hi,

I have a filtered set of data. I want to use
application.countif

Open in new window

on a column to find the number of occurances of a specific data. (how many times a name appears within a filtered month)

However, it is giving me an error.

How can I go on to do this?

Thanks!

Have you tried like this... assigning to a variable

Var = Application.CountIf(Range("A1:A100"), "Johnny")

Open in new window


or

Msgbox Application.CountIf(Range("A1:A100"), "Johnny")

Open in new window

Hi NB,

Yes I did. It returns an error for filtered rows. That is (eg) when only A15, A22, A99 is visible (even though Jonny is on A22)

I only want it to return results from visible cells only.

I am more of a formula person... so not sure what best way would be with VBA, but a formula to count a filtered list based on a condition would be something like:

=SUMPRODUCT(SUBTOTAL(3,OFFSET($A$1:$A$100,ROW($A$1:$A$100)-MIN(ROW($A$1:$A$100)),,1)),--($B$1:$B$100="Johnny"))

counts number of "Johnny" in column B when filtering column A.

Not sure if you want to adapt that to VBA and application functions...

You might consider looping through the visible cells in your range and testing them for the value:
Sub FilteredCellCounter()
Dim cel As Range, rg As Range
Dim i As Long
Set rg = Selection
If rg.Cells.Count = 1 Then Set rg = Intersect(rg.EntireColumn, rg.Worksheet.UsedRange)
Set rg = rg.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)
If Not rg Is Nothing Then
    For Each cel In rg.Cells
        If cel.Value = "Johnny" Then i = i + 1
    Next
End If
MsgBox i
End Sub

Slightly less complicated than SUMPRODUCT, use:

=SUBTOTAL(#,Range)

The # can be changed to several options from 1 to 11 and 101 to 111.

The help file gives the meaning of each but 2 or 3 and 102 or 103 use the COUNT and COUNTA functions.

Interpreting the help remarks:

1 to 11 include rows hidden by formatting but excludes rows hidden by filter.
101 to 111 excludes rows hidden by formatting and rows hidden by filter.

Thanks,
Rob H

That assumes that the column is already filtered to the value that you are counting.

My assumption was that Shanon212 wanted to count only a certain name (e.g. only the number of times "Johnny" appears)  after filtering.  The SUBTOTAL() function on its own will count all rows after filtering.
