 # Consolidating Data

Can someone help me with a formula or macro to consolidate the following data into one column (K)? I need it to say the frequency with the first letter of the week day to follow. "Weekly T"  I am doing this manually right now for 200+ rows and I need an easier way. Any help is appreciated! 7 Replies

``=INDEX(A2:I2,MATCH(1,N(NOT(ISBLANK(A2:I2))),0))``

Is this what you are looking for? It works in my spreadsheet if the columns B, D, F, H and J are empty. Enter the formula with ctrl+shift+enter if you don't work with Office365 or 2021.

That definitely helps! Do you think there is a way to get the week day in there somehow?
I am very grateful for your help with this!

# Re: Consolidating Data

``=INDEX(A2:I2,MATCH(1,N(NOT(ISBLANK(A2:I2))),0))&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,MATCH(1,N(NOT(ISBLANK(A2:I2))),0)),1)``

Maybe with this formula if you want to return e.g. "monthly W ". Enter the formula with ctrl+shift+enter if you don't work with Office365 or 2021.

@Quadruple_Pawn This looks wonderful! I forgot that sometimes there is multiple visits a week. Is there a way to add this too? Like "Weekly M, W, F" etc. # Re: Consolidating Data

``=IF(COUNTA(A2:I2)>1,INDEX(A2:I2,SMALL(IF(A2:I2<>"",COLUMN(\$A:\$I)),1))&" "&LEFT(LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,SMALL(IF(A2:I2<>"",COLUMN(\$A:\$I)),1)),1),1)&" "&INDEX(A2:I2,SMALL(IF(A2:I2<>"",COLUMN(\$A:\$I)),2))&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,SMALL(IF(A2:I2<>"",COLUMN(\$A:\$I)),2)),1),INDEX(A2:I2,MATCH(1,N(NOT(ISBLANK(A2:I2))),0))&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,MATCH(1,N(NOT(ISBLANK(A2:I2))),0)),1))``

This could be a solution if there are one or two visits a week. This formula would become more complicated if there were three or four or five visits a week.

However i'm sure that there is an easier solution in Excel versions 2013 and newer. If you work with Office365 or 2021 a possibility can be using formulas like LET and TEXTJOIN.

# Re: Consolidating Data

Now i understand that within the same week there is either "weekly" or "monthly" or "bi-weekly" and so on. Therefore the result can be e.g. "weekly M W F" but never e.g. "weekly W bi-weekly T".

A solution could be this formula which seems to work in my spreadsheet:

``````=IF(COUNTA(A2:I2)=1,INDEX(A2:I2,MATCH(1,N(NOT(ISBLANK(A2:I2))),0))&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,MATCH(1,N(NOT(ISBLANK(A2:I2))),0)),1),IF(COUNTA(A2:I2)=2,INDEX(A2:I2,MATCH(1,N(NOT(ISBLANK(A2:I2))),0))&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,MATCH(1,N(NOT(ISBLANK(A2:I2))),0)),1)&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,SMALL(IF(A2:I2<>"",COLUMN(\$A:\$I)),2)),1),IF(COUNTA(A2:I2)=3,INDEX(A2:I2,MATCH(1,N(NOT(ISBLANK(A2:I2))),0))&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,MATCH(1,N(NOT(ISBLANK(A2:I2))),0)),1)&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,SMALL(IF(A2:I2<>"",COLUMN(\$A:\$I)),2)),1)&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,SMALL(IF(A2:I2<>"",COLUMN(\$A:\$I)),3)),1),IF(COUNTA(A2:I2)=4,INDEX(A2:I2,MATCH(1,N(NOT(ISBLANK(A2:I2))),0))&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,MATCH(1,N(NOT(ISBLANK(A2:I2))),0)),1)&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,SMALL(IF(A2:I2<>"",COLUMN(\$A:\$I)),2)),1)&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,SMALL(IF(A2:I2<>"",COLUMN(\$A:\$I)),3)),1)&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,SMALL(IF(A2:I2<>"",COLUMN(\$A:\$I)),4)),1),IF(COUNTA(A2:I2)=5,INDEX(A2:I2,MATCH(1,N(NOT(ISBLANK(A2:I2))),0))&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,MATCH(1,N(NOT(ISBLA
NK(A2:I2))),0)),1)&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,SMALL(IF(A2:I2<>"",COLUMN(\$A:\$I)),2)),1)&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,SMALL(IF(A2:I2<>"",COLUMN(\$A:\$I)),3)),1)&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,SMALL(IF(A2:I2<>"",COLUMN(\$A:\$I)),4)),1)&" "&LEFT(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$I\$1,SMALL(IF(A2:I2<>"",COLUMN(\$A:\$I)),5)),1),"")))))``````

# Re: Consolidating Data

Yes! So there is never a mix of biweekly, weekly or monthly in a week. Only multiple weekly visits. So we might have a situation that a technician is visiting Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Never a random Bi-Weekly or Monthly visit within that though.
