# Count Longest Run Of Contiguous Zeros

Jun 18, 2008
I am trying to figure out how to create a formula or VBA to count how many contiguous 0's there are in a specific row...and then drag this formula down many rows..for example - if a row of data contains 1,3,0,0,0,4,5,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,5,3,1,0 I want the result to be 7, because 7 is the longest streak of contiguous 0's.

I have a list of dates in column A (sequential from low to high).

I have corresponding rainfall data in column S.

I am trying to find the longest run of 0's in the rainfall data and return the start and end dates. It would be great if i could tell it (in cell C8) to find the longest run below this number.

ie: i say i want to find the longest run of numbers below 5.

I'm attempting to summarise several hundred control charts.

One thing I'd like to do is be able to put in a formula to count the maximum number of successive entries that are all the same side of the mean.

Another related thing is to be able to count the longest run where successive values are the same.

I would like to average a non-continuous range of cells while also excluding all zeros.

I am averaging hours worked and the hours are found in cells:

B2, D2, F2, H2, J2, L2, N2

Some of these cells contain zeros at this time and I do not what to include the zeros in the average.

I have found formulas that would work but they are all with continuous cell ranges.

I want to count the number of cells with a “#n/a” in for a cell range which is non-continuous. For example my cell range is: “H5,J5,L5,N5,P5,R5,T5,V5". I’ve tried a few different things but I can’t get the function to work.

I am trying to count data using several criteria

1.Need to add data from for a certain category, say "blue" + data during a certain date but exclue the ones with zeros

My formula using arrays look like this, but it is still counting data with zero in the cell as an item

=count(if(A4:A400(text by category)=”blue”,count(if(O4:O400(date)<”04/01/07”,count(An4:An400)[Actual data],-(countif(An4:An400,0))))))

I'd like to count non blank cells in 16 separate ranges (each range consists of 6 consecutive cells). The first range in the series is C9:H9. 3 cells are then skipped and the process is repeated with the next range, ie L9:Q9 then skip 3. The last range in the series of 16 is therefore EK9:EP9.

If the value of non blank cells = 2 in any of these 16 ranges then copy the contents of this range to C24:D24 in sheet " Record Form Games 3583". If C24:D24 is not empty copy these values to C25:C26.

If the value of non blank cells = 6 in any of these 16 ranges then copy the contents of this range to C22:H22 in sheet "Record Form Games 3583". If C22 is not empty copy these values to C23:H23.

The ranges colored yellow in the example workbook are the ones that need to be copied to the sheet Record Form Games 3583.

Does anyone know how, to count the same text, but on occasions?

So basically, I mean, if the letter 'S' was in 10 cells, but on 3 different occasions (meaning the cells aren't one after the other), how do I count the fist 'S' of each occasion it appears?

I have some data like the following:

2 3 4 8 4 1 3 3 1 8 1 3 5 8 1 2 5 6 1 7 9 3 3

I would like to be able to count the number of times 1 follows 8 for example. For the data above the answer is 2.

I need to count how many times a set of numbers go past zero, ie. change their sign. they almost never hit zero directly, so i cannot just count "0". example below.

0.345

0.678

1.234

2.567

1.4

0.2

-0.34

-0.456

-0.01

0.356

1.890 etc

In this example there would be just 2 sign changes, where the values pass zero (marked red). So i just need a formula that returns the result "2".

I need to do this for about 20,000 rows of data, all in one column

I have pivot table that is pulling data from a page that is using the vlookup formula. I would like the table to only include fields that have data in the count. However, the pivot table is registering cells that have "0" (i.e., there's no actual data in the cell it is pull from) as having data. How can I get the pivot table count to ignore these cells?

I am trying to make a excell spread sheet that will calculate my students averages for the year. I need to account for zeros in the coarse and I want this excel sheet to track the current average all year long . So I do not need to include my blanks in the average as I go. Also , how do I formulate my average accum to show this formula - Test scores, four of them count as 80% of the total grade. So each test is worth 20% / Lab 10% of total grade and homework is additional 10%. I downloaded the templete from MSN and have tweaked it to my liking except for the coding above. Please advise. I am a below par on Excel. My attachemtn is below of my templete. One note. the templete gave me the room to include 13 ros of homework - but I will not necessarily use all of them... I can make it one row for home work only ....

I would like to be able to count the amount of entries in column C and depending on the amount group them in either groups of 3 or 4, all names would be unique...so if there are 14 names in the list they would need to be grouped in to two groups of 4 and two groups of 3, if there were 19 then 4 groups of 4 and 1 group of 3 etc to a maximum 50 people, the results could appearon a seperate worksheet say pasted on to the worksheet starting with the groups of 3 (so paste a group of 3 then skip 3 rows then paste groups of 4 skip 2 rows, the row skipping is to allow seperation and manual entry of extra data). There will never be groups of 5 or more and never less than 3

with the data in the attached sheet, I create several different pivot tables that need show the count of the information in the columns M:DU. My issue is that the data is sent to me from a third party and the columns contain zeros that cause the counts to inflate.

What I would like to be able to do is run a macro that will search out any zeros in M:DU and replace them with a blank cell.

Unfortunately the number of rows increases with every monthly reporting cycle so the macro would need to be able to accommodate for that.

I am looking for a formula that returns the date of the first and last value in the longest continued range.

In the example:

CD30CLA3101/02/200833201/03/20086

3301/04/200853401/05/20083501/06/200863601/07/200823701/08/2008

The two formula should return the two dates in blue.

I had asked about automatically naming regions and this is an extension of that post because it's closed. The code we ended up with to name the region is:

Dim sNm As String, sRT As String

If Intersect(Target, Rows(1)) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub '------------------->

If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub '---------------------------------------->

sNm = Replace(Trim(Target), " ", "_")

sRT = "=offset(" _

& Target.Address _

& ", 1, 0, counta(" _

& Cells(2, Target.Column).Resize(Rows.Count - Target.Row).Address & ") )"

ThisWorkbook.Names.Add Name:=sNm, RefersTo:=sRT

My problem now is that I need to have the regions be the length of the longest column. I've tried using a few different ways using the worksheet range but I can't seem to get it to work.

I'm looking for a formula which returns the longest consecutive series of occurrences of 2 chars in a text string.

In the case I'm trying to count the longest consecutive number of nine-spares (9/) in a bowling game.

For example:

|7/|X|9/|9/|9-|9/|9/|9/|9/|X8/|longest series of 9/ would be 4.

|9/|9-|9/|9/|7/|9-|(8)/|X|7/|9-|longest series of 9/ would be 2.

|9/|(8)1|X|X|72|63|7/|8/|8/|9/9|longest series of 9/ would be 1.

I have a database application which appends an "A" to the sequence number each time an entry is amended and then posts it as a new row in the database. This means there can be multiple entries with the same number but with different amount of "A"'s afterwards.

e.g.

Cell A6 contains seq no 1

Cell A7 contains seq no 2 - Seq no 1 is subsequently amended so...

Cell A8 contains seq no 1A - 1A is subsequently amended so...

Cell A9 contains seq no 1AA - and so on and so forth..........

What i am trying to achieve is a formula which will look at the record number which is required (i.e. 1) and will search for record 1 with the most number of "A"'s appended. This way the user will only be amending the most up to date record.

The formula i have tried (but doesn't work) is:

=INDEX(A6:A65536,MATCH(B2&MAX(LEN(A6:A65536)),A6:A65536,1),0)

(B2 is the record the user wants to amend)

I am trying to do the following with VBA.

What i need is to find out the last cell with data and then selecting the whole range and copying it.

Please see the below.

As you can see, the column with the "longest" data range is B9,C9,D9,E9.

I need a VBA code to detect which Column has the longest Data and from there copy the entire range.

Hence, in this case, the range to be copied is From A2:J9.

Column A

Column B

Column C

Column D

Column E

Column F

Column G

Column H

Column I

Column J

1

2

ttt

rrr

m

vvv

gg

ff

fff

fff

fff

[Code] ..........

Hence,in this case, the range to be copied is From A2 to J14.

Column A

Column B

Column C

Column D

Column E

Column F

Column G

Column H

Column I

Column J

1

I’ve created a formula for this statistic and I’m happy with the results. Because I’m working with formulas, my only problem is the unwanted zeros. How do I hide zeros that show up automatically (i.e. #3 [blank] and Nov 09-June 10)? I can hide the numbers, but if I enter a zero to one of my future statistics it will not appear and I don’t want that to happen. Is there a way to hide those automatic zeros without affecting my real zeros?

I have a rather large database that I'm trying to automate colours in, based on data that is inserted into Column 'D'. I've used the following code (with some success), but it colours columns that I don't want to colour:

VB:

Sub KeyCellsChanged()

Dim Cell As Object

For Each Cell In Range("D1:D5000")

[Code].....

That works fine - but the problem I have is that I only want to colour columns A:N, Q, T, V, AB:AE, etc. (random columns and not always together). I have already tried to replace parts (as follows), but get all sorts of errors (in particular Run-time error 1004):

VB:

If Cell = "Rabbit" Then

Cell.Range("A:N,Q, T, V, AB:AE").Interior.ColorIndex = 42

Is there someway that a line of code can determin which cells to colour in the row, or alternatively code that will colour the columns a specific colour and make them stay that colour when the first code above is used?

Range:

C3,C14,C25,C34,C41

Criteria:

sum-range:

C3,C14,C25,C34,C41

I can't get that to work since the commas in the range are throwing the function off.

I want to get the average of various non-contigous columns, ex:

Column B G X Z

10 0 6 8

However, I need to exclude any zero values. In this case the correct average is 8. I have used various sumif's and Average(IF) functions without success.

Copying and pasting into non-contiguous cells.

I want to be able to filter my data set, so for example I can filter column A for the value Berkshire, I then want to be able to select all the Berkshire's in Column A (not a problem, simply select them and copy), but I then need to be able to paste them into column B, so they appear in exactly the same rows as they do in Column A, but this doesn't work, it pastes them into hidden cells as well.

I've tried the Alt + ; (Visible Cells Only) option, followed by copy and paste and this makes no difference.

I have over 20,000 rows of data to filter, then copy the relevant cells and move to the same row in another column and currently I'm having to move the cells one by one which is ludicrous.

I have a spreadsheet that I have developed at work to track sales related data. As part of the reporting for this data, it is sorted by date. I have been asked to capture some additional related data and due to the structure of the spreadsheet(that has been in use several months with no issues) I can not put the additional data in adjacent columns without doing a complete redesign of the format.

I can place the data several columns away.... The data "in the middle" is static and is used for other calculations and should not be sorted. Is there a way to sort both ranges of data WITHOUT disturbing the columns separating them and keep the proper relationship with the data?

See attached for a very simple example. In this data set the "original" data was in range A2:E11 the "New" data is in Range I2:M11. It would make life simple if I could do something like this (but it sorts everything in between)
