# Count At Least 4 Consecutive Values

Sep 22, 2006

I have a range of binary numbers and would like to count the number of times the value of 1 appears BUT there must be at least 4 consecutive 1's.

Here's an example:
1
1
1
1
1
1
0
1
0
1
1
1

The final count should be 6.

I'm trying to use this formula to count consecutive values but somehow it doesn't work properly.
Does anyone see what's going wrong here or is there a better formula to this?

## Formula To Count Consecutive Values?

Apr 12, 2013

I have a user form with 125 checkboxes and if checked would like them to display one message box containing a specific message for that the checkbox slection, but all messages in one message box.

I have one command button that will list each message box individually, using code like this -
If CheckBox12 = True And CheckBox5 = True Then MsgBox "You would need to see your manager"

Each message box individually is time consuming and it would be better if they all displayed in one box. Of the 125 check box options, 7 or 8 will only be selected at any given time.

## Count Consecutive Values By Condition

Jan 26, 2010

I have a spreadsheet with employees performance results for the last 12 months. Column A contains name, columns B to M contain text "Gold", "silver" or "bronze". I need to count how many consecutive months thay have achieved "Gold" status BUT must include latest month.

So, if column M contains "silver" or "bronze", the consecutive answer (column N) would be 0. If col M = "Gold" but L doesn't then N = 1. If M and L = "Gold" then N = 2 etc etc.

Is there a formula I can use in column N for this without doing 12 "if" functions?
I think this needs to be an array formula but the ones I've tried I can't get to work.

## Consecutive Count

I need to count the maximum amount of consecutive crosses that appear in a list. For instance:

x
x

x
x
x
x

x
x
x

the result would be 4, because the highest amount of consecutive crosses in this list is 4 times.

Would anyone mind providing me with a formula for this, please? The list is from C5:C52.

## Count Consecutive Numbers?

Jun 24, 2007

I have a daily column of numbers of approx 600 rows and the number is either a 0 or 1 and the 0 or 1 are in a random order in each row like:

1
1
1
0
1
0
0
0
1
0
0
1

I would like to find the min number of rows with 1, the max number of rows with 1, the totals of consecutive rows with 1 ie 3 consecutive rows of 1 appear 4 times, 4 consecutive rows appear 6 times etc and the average of the consecutive rows with 1.

## Consecutive Value Occurrence Count

Apr 2, 2008

I have to calculate bonus payments for people working O/S. I have a 5 year calendar in month blocks (60 months/columns). In each month there is a percentage 'time O/S' figure.

If an employee is O/S for 3 consecutive months they get bonus 'A', 6 consective months bonus 'B', etc. How can I evaluate the 60 columns, returning the number of times 100% occurs in 3 consecutive months/columns. I have found examples of similar solutions but they will return a value of 3 if there are 5 consecutive months of 100%...

ie. 100 100 100 100 100
= 100 100 100 *** ***
& *** 100 100 100 ***
& *** *** 100 100 100
= 3
but I need it to equal 1

## Count Consecutive Increases From Last Value

Sep 22, 2011

I'm trying to come up with an array formula to count the consecutive declines or increases from the last value in a column, going from bottom to top. The real world application is a list of daily stock prices down a column, and counting from the most recent day, how many consecutive days the price declined or increased.

I got some hints in the following post but can't get it evaluate the resulting logical array in reverse order (which is needed since column addresses are evaluated top to bottom, not bottom to top).

Count consecutive increase in values

Example for consecutive increases leading to last value
49
50
51
52
53
49
55
56

I need a formula to return 2, the number of increases from 49 to 56.

## Count Consecutive Dates

Jul 25, 2009

I am a remodeling contractor trying to monitor trips my employees are making to the lumberyard. I am able to export to excel from our accounting program a column of dates that invoices are made and another column that tells me whether trips were made before 8:30, between 8:30 and 3:30, after 3:30, or whether materials were delivered involving no trip. So I can count "time of day" trips. I also want to know if multiple trips were made in a single day, or if trips were made 2, 3, 4, 5, etc. days in a row.

Column 1 Column 2
Monday, July 6 2009 Before 8:30
Monday, July 6 2009 Between 8:30 and 3:30
Tuesday, July 7 2009 Between 8:30 and 3:30
Wednesday, July 8 2009 Before 8:30
Friday, July 10 2009 After 3:30
Monday, July 13 2009 Before 8:30
Wednesday, July 15, 2009 Before 8:30

In this example, I have 2 trips made on a single day; 1 instance of trips made 3 days in a row; 1 instance of trips made 2 days in a row (Friday, and then again on Monday since we don't work weekends) and 1 instance of 1 trip made on an isolated day. Additionally, we have 4 trips made before 8:30; 2 trips between 8:30 and 3:30 and 1 trip made after 3:30. Columns for a single job could range to 30 or 40 trips or more, and we have 6-12 jobs running at any one time, so I could be looking at data for all of those jobs once a month if I can figure out how to make it easy to do. I have figured out how to count up the time of day trips (but included the example here for a fuller picture of what I'm trying to do) but cannot figure out how to count the number of 2,3,4,5 etc.-day-in-a-row trips that are being made.

Aug 13, 2008

I am preparing a attendance sheet. I am using 1 & 0 for present(=1) & absent(=0). I want to find out if a student has been absent for three consecutive days and if there is three consecutive 0 then the formula should return the value 0 ( the student gets 0 if he is absent for 3 consecutive days ) otherwise it should add all the 1s in the row. i.e

1 1 1 0 0 1 1 0 = 5

10 0 0 1 1 0 0 = 0

## Count The Number Of Consecutive Occurrences

Nov 18, 2008

I have an excel spreadsheet to record employee holiday and sickness figures.

It is set on as a grid e.g. column A stores all the dates and then employee names are used as column header.

One of the triggers I need to use is where, an employee has been absent 28 consecutive days. When an employee is absent I simply enter 'ABSENT' against there name.

Countif will count the number of time absent appears in the column however I need it to only recognise it if it is only 28 days in a row.

## Count Most Recent Consecutive Years?

Dec 15, 2011

I need a formula that will calculate the most recent consecutive years.

The actual data has multiple ID# and the consecutive years need to be matched to the ID#

So far I have =COUNTIFS(ID_NUMBER, A2, EXPIRATION_DATE, ?????)

A friend of mine suggested that I count backwards from the most recent date and stop counting when there is a break of one year. That is where I get stumped. It doesn't need to be a year day and date, I just need to compare the YEAR portion of the date.

The example data is provided below the consecutive year value on the sheet was calculated by hand and is the correct value that needs to be returned.

ID # Transaction Date Transaction Type Registration Package Amount Paid Expiration Date Years Paid Inspected Consecutive Years 57 8/8/1996 NEW SHIRT+DISC \$15.00 8/8/1997 8 Y 3 57 9/3/1997 RENEW DISC \$15.00 8/8/1998 8 Y 3 57 9/8/1998 RENEW SHIRT \$15.00 8/8/1999 8 Y 3 57 6/13/2001 RENEW SHIRT \$15.00 6/13/2002 8 Y 3 57 5/6/2005 RENEW DISC \$15.00 5/6/2006 8 Y 3 57 5/12/2009 RENEW DISC \$15.00 5/12/2010 8 Y 3 57 3/7/2010 RENEW DISC \$15.00 5/12/2011 8 Y 3 57 1/4/2011 RENEW SHIRT \$20.00 5/12/2012 8 Y 3

## Count If Data Is Available In Consecutive Columns

## Formula To Count Consecutive Rows

Nov 18, 2009

create a formula that counts consecutive rows that have wins and losses.

A B
1 Game 1 Win
2 Game 2 Win
3 Game 3 Win
4 Game 4 Lose
5 Game 5 Lose
6 Game 6 Win
7 Game 7 Lose

So Consecutive wins = 3
Consecutive losses = 2

## Count Of Consecutive Cell Groups

Split from Count Of Groups Where Last Character Is Unique

The A1 B1 C1 were not the data items in the table, but the cell addresses. The new title of the thread does not reflect what I am asking either. The focus of the question is the counting of groups, not counts of cell contents.

## Count Number Of Consecutive Rows Of Equal Value?

Dec 27, 2013

I'm looking at test results and would like to know how many times in a row correct answers were given before getting one incorrect. The way I have this currently set up, is if a student has the answer correct it returns a "TRUE" value, and a "FALSE" value for an incorrect answer. A typical test may have 50 questions, so I would have either "TRUE" or "FALSE" values in rows A1 through A50.

So I've been trying to figure out a formula that counts the number of times "TRUE" rows repeat 'consecutively' in a given column, in this scenario column A. The formula would need to check the current row and if "TRUE" check the row immediately after, if that row is also "TRUE" then check the row immediately after that, until it runs into a "FALSE" string, then display that total count of consecutive "TRUES" in another cell. I understand there may be duplicate results but I'm only really interested in the longest value, so duplicates can be ignored.

If it makes the formula easier, each possible result can be assigned to it's own cell. Let's assume the test has 50 questions. So if a student got all 50 questions correct the result count would be 50 in cell B50, or if they got 25 correct before the first incorrect answer, cell B25 would say 25, etc. I'm guessing I could then easily query this column for the largest value to come up with what I need at a glance.

## Count Of Maximum Consecutive Sellouts For Each Customer

Jan 18, 2009

I have a sheet that lists customers in column A and then each customers Distribution & Sales over a period of time. The spreadsheet then flags if the customer has sold out in any month. I now require a count of maximum consecutive sellouts for each customer. For example:

Customer A S/O S/O nil nil S/O
Customer B S/O S/O S/O nil nil
Customer C nil S/O S/O S/O S/O

In the above example Customer A would have 2, B 3 and C 4 sellouts. I'm looking at about 10K customers I require for each product.

## Range Of Data - Count Where There Is 3 Consecutive Days

Aug 7, 2013

I have a range of data but the important pieces are

Column B - list of employee IDs.
Column C - Date

I have sorted the data by column B with secondary sort for column C oldest to newest date.

I want to know the number of instances where an employee has 3 consecutive days in column C. Only count 3 consecutive. If the consecutive days go over 3 (such as 4 or 5 days) I do no want to count these.

## Wizard Required: Consecutive Count And Countif

Feb 25, 2007

I have a table of data as below recording daily foreign exchange rates.

Column A = Time and date
Column B = USA
Column C = UK
Column D = Aust.
Column E = Japan
Column F = Euro

Time and date USA UKAust.JapanEuro
04-Jan-20060.68390.39180.924379.470.5693
05-Jan-20060.68660.39050.918779.720.5666
06-Jan-20060.68710.39150.919579.720.5675

Then in column H i have a formula that works out if the rate has exceeded a specified base rate, if it has i display Threshold Exceeded and if it hasn’t i display No Action Required.

OK from here i want to count the number of times in the month the Threshold has been exceeded. I can do this by using the countif formula.

Now this is the section i need help on

For a specified time, say a month, i want to count the maximum number of times the Threshold has been exceeded consecutively.

E.g

Threshold Exceeded
Threshold Exceeded
Threshold Exceeded
Threshold Exceeded
Threshold Exceeded
No Action Required
No Action Required
Threshold Exceeded
Threshold Exceeded
Threshold Exceeded

Result = 5 (max number of consecutive Threshold Exceeded” for a specified time frame)

## Count Number Of Batches Of Consecutive Numbers In A Column?

Oct 11, 2012

What I am trying to is to count the number of times a certain number or character appears (either on its own or in a batch of consecutive cells containing that number/character) in a column.An example might clarify things (for reasons of brevity I will write the columns in rows):

If a column looks like (each 1-digit numbers / characters being a consecutive cell) 0 0 X X 0 0 X and I am counting for X, then I should get 2. If my column is X X 0 X X 0 X 0 0, then I should get 3. If my column is 0 X X 0 0 X 0 then I should get 2. If my column is X X 0 X X 0 X then I should get 3. Is there a formula to perform that calculation?

## Count Number Of Consecutive Cells In Another Sheet With Value Greater Than Zero?

I'm trying to create a formula (in Sheet 1) that will return the most recent number of cells containing a value (i.e. not empty) in Sheet 2 Range AD2:A367 greater than zero.

I've tried using COUNTIF but that only adds the individual values, it doesn't 'start from zero again' when a zero value appears.

## Count Number Of Appearances Of A Range Of Consecutive Cells

Jan 12, 2007

how to built a formula or a VBA code which would tell me how many times a range of a certain amount of consecutively stnading cells in a given row there is present, where each of the cells belonging to these five cells fulfills a certain criterion.

Example:

How many times does the range of 5 consecutive cells appear in range A1 to P2, where every cells belongng to these 5 consecutive cells would have a value graeater than 10.

## Summing Values After Finding Max Consecutive Values

May 11, 2009

I have 10 columns (A-J). Column B is the Date & Column C is the Time, I have the data sorted 1st by date then by time. The 5th Column, E, is Size. The 10th column, J, is "Position."

This 10th column, J, is in binary format. A 1 equals a Position & a 0 equals no Position.

1) I need to find the Max Sum of the Size in which the Max consecutive set of 1s has occurred.

2) I need to also do this on a day by day basis, using the Date in Column B, without having to manually go through & modify all the formulas to reference the date.

I have a Sumif formula for the 2nd but it won't copy down to update the formula for each unique date. I have to manually change the date values & I have ~957 unique dates to do; so it would be a rather painstaking process if only done manually. Moreover, it doesn't count the Max Sum of all consecutive 1s in Column J...

The length of the non unique columns (all columns w/o unselecting the duplicate entries) is 19,068.

If you can be of help, I'd be very thankful...my brain is overloaded w/googling & using trial & error.
