Repeating numbers in same cell
I have a worksheet that has repeating numbers in one cell.
Example: 1204,1205,1206,1205,1204 Is there a formula that will total the repeating numbers? i.e. (2) 1204, (2) 1205?

1. Use Text to Columns to move the numbers to individual cells
2. Copy the row to a column using Paste/Special/Transpose 3. create Pivot Table listing the count of values by value.

This would work if the worksheet wasn't so big. I have numerous cells that
have repeating numbers in them. The problem is that the numbers are different for each cell. Using Text to Columns wouldn't work. There are up to 80 numbers in any given cell. Thanks for your quick response though. "Gary''s Student" wrote: 1. Use Text to Columns to move the numbers to individual cells 2.

You could write a short UDF to do that. This will add the numbers in a string that consists of commaseparated numbers. To USE this UDF, enter a formula like: =AddCSN(cell_ref) To ENTER the code, <altF11 opens the VBEditor. Ensure your project is highlighted in the project explorer window, then Insert/Module and paste the code below into the window that opens. Enjoy. Note there is no errorchecking in this code  illegal values will give a #VALUE! error. ============================ Function AddCSN(str As String) As Double AddCSN = Evaluate(Replace(str, ",", "+")) End Function =============================== ron

Try: Function SplitStr(InputS As String, Optional Delim As String = ",") As Variant Dim a As Variant, b As Variant, i As Long a = Split(InputS, Delim) For i = LBound(a) To UBound(a) b = Split(InputS, a(i)) If InStr(SplitStr, " (" & UBound(b) & ") " & a(i)) = 0 Then SplitStr = SplitStr & ", (" & UBound(b) & ") " & a(i) End If Next SplitStr = Right(SplitStr, Len(SplitStr)  2) End Function Use as: =SplitStr(A1,",") If you wanted them in order, you would just have to sort the array "a" first. Cheers, Ivan.

I think OP wants to count duplicates, not sum the numbers. See Ivyleaf's function which I think is spot on.

I misread your initial request. This UDF will return a sorted horizontal array consisting of the list of numbers in row 1, and the count for each number in row two. You can return the values on your worksheet in a variety of ways. You could enter this array formula in two adjacent columns, with dimensions large enough to include all of the unique values: =TRANSPOSE(UniqueNums(A1))) (gives you a vertical array; without the TRANSPOSE you'd have a horizontal array). With your data in A1 B1: =INDEX(UniqueNums($A$1),1,ROWS($1:1)) C1: =INDEX(UniqueNums($A$1),2,ROWS($1:1)) and fill down as far as required. (With LOTS of data, this method may take a while to run). There are other solutions, based on this algorithm, that may be appropriate depending on more specifics. Also, I'm not sure how you want the results sorted. As posted, it will sort by the most frequent to the least frequent value. If you just want the results sorted in numerical order, comment out the second Bubblesort line in the first procedure. Here is the code. Enter it into a regular module as I posted previously. =========================================== Option Explicit Function UniqueNums(CSN As String) 'Returns a horizontal two dimensional ' array of unique words and count Dim cNumList As Collection Dim Str Dim sRes() As Variant Dim I As Long, J As Long 'Split string Str = Split(CSN, ",") 'get list of unique words Set cNumList = New Collection On Error Resume Next For I = 0 To UBound(Str) cNumList.Add Str(I), Str(I) Next I On Error GoTo 0 ReDim sRes(0 To 1, 1 To cNumList.Count) For I = 1 To cNumList.Count sRes(0, I) = cNumList(I) Next I 'get number count for each number For I = 1 To UBound(sRes, 2) sRes(1, I) = (Len(CSN)  Len(Replace(CSN, sRes(0, I), ""))) / Len(sRes(0, I)) Next I 'Sort Numerically Ascending BubbleSort sRes, 0, True 'then sort by Count highest to lowest BubbleSort sRes, 1, False UniqueNums = sRes End Function ' Private Sub BubbleSort(TempArray As Variant, d As Long, _ bSortDirection As Boolean) 'bSortDirection = True means sort ascending 'bSortDirection = False means sort descending Dim Temp1 As Variant, Temp2 Dim I As Long Dim NoExchanges As Boolean Dim Exchange As Boolean ' Loop until no more "exchanges" are made.

WOW! All of that just to fix somebody's booboo? I'll give it a try. As I
don't understand any of this, I'm skeptical that I will succeed. Thanks to all of you for your assistance.
