# How to find the most popular number?

#### Joel_fw

Hi all,

I have an excel sheet with hundreds of rows of call detail. In column F i have "dialled number", and then in column G i have "duration of this call". Some numbers are called multiple times and others just once or twice.

What i would like to be able to do is sort which are the most popular numbers dialled; by call duration. My first thought was just to sort the data by dialled number, but as some calls are 1 second and others 40 minute conversations it isn't easy to see what are the most popular by call duration.

So in effect i would like to sort by call duration and dialled number in one. But i'm not sure how or if this can be done?

Any help is much appreciated

Joel

### Excel Facts

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

if the call duration is a numeric field you could use a Pivot Table to show you this I think, no ?

Otherwise you may want to think about using a helper column to do the SUMIF for you by number which you can then in turn find the MAX and return associated number.

Hi This will place the most Used Number (by time) in Decending List, in Column "A" for number, and "B" for Times.
Change Range ref in last line of code if not suitable !
The code assumes the times are decimal format.
NB:- I don't think you can have two criteria Time & Number of Calls.
Code:
``````Dim oRes, oDt As Integer, iDt As Integer, oSum, fData
Dim Rng As Range, c As Integer
Dim i As Long, j As Long, temp As Variant, temp2 As Variant

Set Rng = Range(Range("F2"), Range("G" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
oRes = Rng.Value

ReDim fData(1 To Rng.Count, 1 To 2)

For oDt = 1 To UBound(oRes)
If oRes(oDt, 1) > "" Then
c = c + 1
fData(c, 1) = oRes(oDt, 1)

For iDt = oDt To UBound(oRes)
If oRes(oDt, 1) = oRes(iDt, 1) Then
oSum = oSum + oRes(iDt, 2)
If iDt > oDt Then oRes(iDt, 1) = ""
End If

Next iDt

fData(c, 2) = oSum
oSum = 0
End If
Next oDt
rem Range("c1").Resize(c, 2).Value = fData

For i = 1 To c
For j = i To c

If Val(fData(j, 2)) > Val(fData(i, 2)) Then
temp = fData(i, 1)
temp2 = fData(i, 2)
fData(i, 1) = fData(j, 1)
fData(i, 2) = fData(j, 2)
fData(j, 1) = temp
fData(j, 2) = temp2
End If
Next j
Next i

Range("a1").Resize(c, 2).Value = fData
MsgBox "Complete"``````

also have a look at Oaktree's answer to below thread, although it deals with a COUNTIF scenario it might point you in the right direction (ie using SUMIF)

NOTE: I've not tested this using SUMIF rather than COUNTIF

If the telephone numbers are in column A and the call durations in column B, the array formula
=INDEX(A:A,MATCH(LARGE(SUMIF(A:A,A1:A1000,B:B),1),SUMIF(A:A,A1:A1000,B:B),0),1)

will return the phone number that has been spoken to the largest duration.

Change the underlined 1 for the second most popular, third, etc.

Hey ya, Mike.

=INDEX(A:A,MATCH(LARGE(SUMIF(A:A,A1:A1000,B:B),1),SUMIF(A:A,A1:A1000,B:B),0),1)
is the right approach, but I don't think
Change the underlined 1 for the second most popular, third, etc.
is right.

If two numbers combine to make the largest value, =INDEX(A:A,MATCH(LARGE(SUMIF(A:A,A1:A1000,B:B),1),SUMIF(A:A,A1:A1000,B:B),0),1)
and =INDEX(A:A,MATCH(LARGE(SUMIF(A:A,A1:A1000,B:B),2),SUMIF(A:A,A1:A1000,B:B),0),1)
will both return the same value...

Not sure you can get the second highest total without a helper column...

A pivot table would yield the desired result(s).

If needed, a formula system would look like:

F1:G12 houses the data...
J1:K4 the processing for duration subtotaling...
M:N the processing that constructs a top N list of popular phone numbers...

K2, copy down:

=SUMIF(\$F\$2:\$F\$12,J2,\$G\$2:\$G\$12)

M2, set to 1, instructs what the size of the top N list must be.

M3, adjusts the size specified in M2 because of possible ties:

=COUNTIF(K2:K4,">="&LARGE(\$K\$2:\$K\$4,M2))

M5, copy down:

=IF(ROWS(M\$5:M5)<=M\$3,LARGE(\$K\$2:\$K\$4,ROWS(M\$5:M5)),"")

N5:

Control+shift+enter, not just enter...

=IF(N(\$M5),INDEX(\$J\$2:\$J\$4,SMALL(IF(\$K\$2:\$K\$4=M\$5,ROW(\$K\$2:\$K\$4)-ROW(\$K\$2)+1),COUNTIF(M\$5:M5,\$M5))),"")

...and copy down.

Hi all,

I have an excel sheet with hundreds of rows of call detail. In column F i have "dialled number", and then in column G i have "duration of this call". Some numbers are called multiple times and others just once or twice.

What i would like to be able to do is sort which are the most popular numbers dialled; by call duration. My first thought was just to sort the data by dialled number, but as some calls are 1 second and others 40 minute conversations it isn't easy to see what are the most popular by call duration.

So in effect i would like to sort by call duration and dialled number in one. But i'm not sure how or if this can be done?

Any help is much appreciated

Joel

Oaktree, Ahh yes. the problem of duplicates and LARGE. The solution probably involves COUNTIF in the second argument of the LARGE.
