Counting Consecutive Cells With Value 


Counting Consecutive Cells With Value  Excel 
View Answers 
I use Excel 2007 and I'm trying to find code or a formula that would count the number of consecutive cells in a row from left to right until it there is 0, Below is an example of what I'm trying to do:
A1 B1 C1 D1 E1 G1 H1 I1 Result 32 0 0 123 123 0 1232 123 2 32 0 123 123 123 123 0 7 1 32 1231 123 123 123 123 8 7 0
Column J has the results.
A1 B1 C1 D1 E1 G1 H1 I1 Result 32 0 0 123 123 0 1232 123 2 32 0 123 123 123 123 0 7 1 32 1231 123 123 123 123 8 7 0
Column J has the results.

Hi!
I want to find a way to fix this:
I have a series of numbers and I want to find a formula for the number of consecutive values of at least a certain number.
Example:
1 6 1 4 2 3 2 5 7 3 0 5 5 1 4 5 4 1 1
Gives us:
Max consecutive for at least 1 gives 10
Max consecutive for at least 2 gives 7
Max consecutive for at least 3 gives 3
Max consecutive for at least 4 gives 3
Max consecutive for at least 5 gives 2
Max consecutive for at least 6 gives 1
Max consecutive for at least 7 gives 1
Hope you understands my question and can help!

Good Afternoon:
I created an excel formula to count the number of consecutive zeros in a column. I am interested in one consecutive zero, two consecutive zeros, three consecutive zeros, etc...
I used the following formula:
=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(P$2:P$279=0,ROW(P$2:P$279)),IF(P$2:P$279<>0,ROW(P$2:P$279)))=W2,FREQUENCY(IF(P$ 2:P$279=0,ROW(P$2:P$279)),IF(P$2:P$279<>0,ROW(P$2:P$279)))))
The formula works 98% of the time. It generally produces the correct number of consecutive zeros, however, occassionally it will indicate there are 15 sets of zeros = 15. Can anyone provide any guidance as to what should be done with this formula?
Thank you for your time.

Hi Guys,
I have a spreadsheet that has the columns conditionally formatted depending on cell value. I was wondering if it's possible to count the maximum consecutive cells across rows. I've attached a small sample. The result I want is maximum number of consecutive blue fonts in the whole spreadsheet which in this case is 4. Many thanks in advance.
Mop.
My goal is to look at a column of numbers and count the number of consecutive cells that are positive (or negative), while ignoring blank cells that may be in between them.
Using the first formula on this thread
http://www.excelforum.com/excelgene...than0a.html
I was able to adapt it to my own data, but whenever I had blank cells in my data the results were not reliable.
the formula i am using now is
=IF(COUNT(1/((A1:A27<0)*(A2:A28<0))),MAX(FREQUENCY(IF((A1:A27<0)*(A2:A28<0),ROW(A2:A28)),IF((A1:A27<0)*(A2:A28>= 0),ROW(A1:A27))))+1,0)
for a bunch of data in column A.
With limited knowledge of excel I'm not exactly sure how this formula works, so I'm not sure how to tell it to ignore all blank cells.
I attached an example that shows how it fails with the blank cells
Hopefully someone can help me out!
Thanks a lot

Similar question to one asked recently:
I would also like to be able to find the maximum consecutive occurrences of "." for each person when results are combined with previous entries. For example, Tom's first result finishes with 4 consecutive "." When combined with his second result which begins with one "." before an "x" the formula result should be 5. (see below)
One person may have 100 different entries. I just need the single maximum consecutive occurrences of "." for each individual when spread across different rows.
John .xxxx
Mary ..x...
Lisa ...xx

Hi I wonder if anyone can help me with a simple query.
I have a list of numbers and I want to count only the consecutive cells which contain a number, and then stop counting when it reaches the first blank cell.
i.e
1
2
8
6
1
6
In the above I want a count of the numbers 1,2,8 and 6, so a total count of 4.
Wondered if anyone knew of a formula for this?
Thanks

Hi,
I am struggling to find a way to count a number of consecutive nonzero values across 33 columns without resorting to a horrid nestedIF formula.
I'm using Excel 2003 and each row I have is an account (there are 5572 accounts). I have been tasked to check if a customer has made 6 consecutive payments (held on each row in columns K to AQ.
If a customer has made less than 6 consecutive payments then I need to multiply the total collected by 40%. If the customer has made more than 6 consecutive payments then I need to multiply the first six payments by 40% and then each subsequent payment (consecutive or otherwise) by 20% and total the figure.
Can anyone help?

Greetings!
I've been stumped for days on finding a formula that will sum the values of cells in a column that are in runs of 5 or more consecutive cells where the cells in the run have a value >=3.
I have found a formula that gives me the count of runs, but I also need a formula that will give me the total, adding only the cells within those consecutive runs of >=5 cells with values >=3.
The following formula gives me a count of runs:
=SUM((FREQUENCY(IF(A2:A721>=3,ROW(A2:A721)),IF(A2:A721=5))
confirmed with ctrl+shift+enter.
For example:
Column A
0
0.5
0
5
3
4
6
3
4
2
0
3
3
3

Using the formula mentioned above would result in a count of 2 runs (5,3.4.6,3,4 and 3,3,3,4,3). I need a formula that would add ONLY the values in these runs and give me a result of 41. Is there a way to create a single formula that would do this as opposed to using several helper columns to calculate the desired result? I apologize for the lengthy explanation.
I greatly appreciate any assistance!

Hello, i've been using the below formula to find the most consecutive "W" (Wins) without any "L" (Loses) in 2 rows, there are between the "W" blanks and \ and numbers
=MAX(FREQUENCY(IF($Y5:$DP5="W",COLUMN($Y5:$DP5)),IF($Y5:$DP5"",IF($Y5:$DP5"W",IF($Y5:$DP5"\",IF($Y5:$DP5>0,COLUMN($Y5:$DP5)))))))
The problem is at the start or end of the count eg
A B C D
L WWW
W W L
The above returns 5 the result i am looking for is 3 as column B and C are the only ones without an L, there are alot more columns so obviously if there are larger sets of consecutive W then the result would be bigger, any ideas?
=MAX(FREQUENCY(IF($Y5:$DP5="W",COLUMN($Y5:$DP5)),IF($Y5:$DP5"",IF($Y5:$DP5"W",IF($Y5:$DP5"\",IF($Y5:$DP5>0,COLUMN($Y5:$DP5)))))))

My goal is to look at a row of numbers and count the number of consecutive cells that greater than 1. while ignoring 1 cells this cell is lower than 1 that may be in between consecutive cells. This can be a inaccurancy.
Now i got this:
=MAX(FREQUENCY(IF(C4:C11591>1;ROW(C4:C11591));IF(C4:C11591<1;ROW(C4:C11591)))).
This function count only the number of consecutive cells but it don't ignore if one cell is lower than 1 in a row.
In the excel file you can see more details about the problem.
Can somebody help me?
Hello all!. I need to count consecutive numbers, but with a condition.
i suppose this would be done in one or two steps, the example spreadsheet is attached.
I have two columns.
one for temperature M26:M43826, the other is relative humidity N26:N43826.
Part1
What i want to do is,
for every value that is >=5 and <40 for M26:M43826 AND >=80 in column N26:N43826
should be designated a value 1 in cells Q26:Q43826
if either of those two criteria are not met, then a value of 0 should be assigned in Q26:Q43826
Part2
ask excel to count the number of maximum consecutive cells in Q26:Q43826 and insert into P:15.
I'll use a small section of the dataset to use as an example
lets say in the column Q27Q34 we get the following values:. In P:15, the value should be 3
0
1
1
1
0
0
1
0

Hi,
Is there a way of counting the number of times a string of consecutive cells appear in a range?
Example:
How many times are there 5 consecutive cells with a value of below a set number referenced in B2 (say number 15), in the range A1 to A100.
Many thanks,
Pedro

Hi everyone, I have a slight problem I need hekp with.
In column E I have a field that contains either "Yes", "No". Now what I am trying to do is figure out the maximum and minimum of consecutive "Yes" and consecutive "No". I am also looking for the average consecutive "Yes" and the average consecutive "No".

I want to count consecutive values and save each value to a report. So I have hundreds of these, 1 col wide, 48 rows. These contain the word blank and this is what I want to count. I want to count consecutive blanks. So the example below I would have a report that shows me....
Consecutive Blanks with corresponding count value
1 consecutive blanks = 2
2 consecutive blanks = 2
3 consecutive blanks = 2
4 consecutive blanks = 2
5 consecutive blanks = 0
6 consecutive blanks = 0
7 consecutive blanks = 0
8 consecutive blanks = 0
You get the idea....don't have to show 0's. I would want to be able to select multiple sheets within 1 book.

Hi all,
I have a column of data containing only 1's and 0's and I would like to use a formula to count the number of mostly consecutive ones. Thanks to previous posts I have already counted the largest number of consecutive ones. But I also need to count the number of ones with a single 0 between them. Here is an example:
1
0
1
1
0
1
1
1
0
0
1
1
largest number of consecutive ones: 3
largest number of consecutive ones with a single 0 between: 6
Please let me know if this can be done, and if so, how to do it.
Thanks!

Hello , i have a problem which i cannot solve so need your help ;
Basically i need to count consecutive repeating values in a given range...
X П2 X П2 X П1 X П2 X X П1 X X П1 П2 (counting here "consecutive X " and the result should be 2 )
П2 П1 П2 П1 П2 X X П1 X X П1 П2 П1 П1 П1 (counting here "consecutive П1 " and the result should be 3 )
Thx in advance
Hi All,
I'd like to count how many times a numerical value repeats in a range as a consecutive duplicate  I didn't see any related posts...
For example, the value is in A2 and the range is D2:Z2 and I'd like to place the formula in B2 to return the # of consecutive duplicates.
With comma's separating cells, let's say value is 3 and range is: 4,6,8,3,3,5,3,3,8,9,2 etc.
In this short excerpt the result would be 2.
Thanks!!

First time posting, and have learned much from the information here. I have searched for a formula or macro to count a letter "U" if it is found in two or more consecutive cells, i.e. U S U U should show 2 in the total box (two consecutive "U"s). I can't seem to find anyway to do it without helper rows.
Any ideas?
Thank you,

I need help in figuring out a formula that will give me the correct results.
I am trying to find consecutive numbers within a cloumn by using the logigal formula =if.
Example..
I have a column that shows random numbers but some are consecutive. I am trying to group those that are in consecutive order.
I have the following number in the column:
A1 9
A2 7
A3 8
A4 9
A5 3
I need to group 7,8,9 in one group.
In the next column I am entering =if(a2=a1+1,True,False)
This works except that the last one in the group (A4) will come up as false because A5 is no longer consecutive. It always leaves the last one as false and therefore I cannot group them correctly. Is there a formula that would group these together?
Please Help....

I know how to identify a number, but not consecutive number.
For an example. On A1, I have 0103041112. How do I go about creating a formula on B1 to identify the consecutive numbers in that format? There are two consecutive in A1 (0304, and 1112).
I would like to have B1 let me know there is consecutive in A1 by placing a symbol √ on B1. Is it possible?
If not the symbol than a 1 would do, does not matter how many consecutive are in A1, by placing number 1 lets me know that A1 have at least 1 consecutive.
Thank you very much!

Hi Guys,
I need some help here.
I need a code that will go through the entire worksheet, and search for consecutive blank cells, and deleting certain rows based on the number of blank cells:
E.g. Column A is the column that I want to look for blank consecutive blank cells.
if no. of consecutive blank cells =2, delete rows with blank cells, and rows before and after the consecutive blanks.
Attached a screenshot with an example and the rows i want to delete.
ANy help is appreciated.

Does anyone know how to count consecutive matches?
For instance:
Column A has ticker symbol.
Column B should be the rating duration (how many consecutive months having the same rating as the current rating)
Column C has the current rating (Positive, Neutral or Negative).
Column D is the rating 1 months ago, Column E is the rating 2 months ago etc up to 24 months.
Is there a formula that will evaluate C2 relative to D2:Z2 and return the consecutive matched going from left to right starting at D2?
Thanks
Tim
