I have a huge
CSV that contains file locations such as this:
\fileserver1\employees\production team\Reports\surveygroup\WIP 08052011.xls
But with all sorts of extensions. I want to be able to, on a separate sheet I have as a report, show a list of all the times a certain file type is used. For example, I want a report page that looks like this:
.JPG 492 .PDF 567 .XLS 124
Thank you for anyone that can help!
Do you already have a distinct list of the extensions? If you do you can use a wildcard with countif.
The * at the beginning will count any items that end with “jpg”. If those items are in a cell you can do the same thing by concatenating a wildcard with a cell value like this.
=COUNTIF(A:A,"*" & C1)
I couldn’t find how to combine them together. But these two formulas will do the trick:
Returns the last 3 letter in the cell
Counts up the instances of a given string.
