# Count Max Number Of Consecutive Positive / Negative Numbers

May 2, 2007
Let's say I have a column A with the following values.

30

40

30

60

-20

-10

-50

-60

-70

120

320

20

-40

-30

40

How can I have 2 cells display:-

i)highest streak of positive numbers = 4

ii)highest streak of negative numbers = 5?

Also, how can I have another 2 cells display:-

iii)the sum of the highest streak of positive numbers = 160

iv)the sum of the highest streak of negative numbers = -210

to create with the default excel functions the following calculator. I need to calculate the maximum number of positive numbers which happen in a row and the maximum number of consecutive negative numbers. For example in the following list of numbers there are a maximum of 7 consecutive positive and a maximum of 6 consecutive negative numbers:

6 000

6 360

6 742

7 146

7 196

7 628

8 086

-4 071

7 898

-4 186

8 121

8 608

-4 562

to make a formula which will calculate the maximum length of positive and negative numbers in a row? I attached this table to the post.

I have attached an example. Basically I had this set up to calculate the row and give the answer at the end. But now I cant see the results without scrolling, so I want to move the answer fields to the C column and add new data into the D column while keeping all the data in the formula.

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?

I would like to see that I am continually saving on a per-day basis (as well as overtime). I allowance myself an allowance each day, but some days, I need to spend more money than that. The best solution I have to is keep a running total for myself, so that each day is affected by the preceding days. Therefore, if I spend too much, I now have a small defecit that needs to be corrected. This method keep me on track as far as saving and spending.

Question (and I copied the actual data from my spreadsheet):

Without having to manual enter the final calculations (because this is just a simple part of an overall larger, more complex spreadsheet), can I generate the values in my Value Change row, based on the information from my Running Total row?

For example, Day 1 to Day 2, I was able to incease my running total from 233 to 354 (meaning that I had saved +121 that day). Of course, this is an easy subtraction problem (Day 2 - Day 1 = Value Change). From Day 2 to Day 3, I spent way too much. The running total fell to -1198, meaning that I spent 1552 too much (that day's value change is -1552). Again, this an easy subtraction (Day 3 - Day 2 = Value Change, just like the first example). From Day 3 to Day 4, I was able to reduce my running total -1063, meaning that I was able to save 135 that day. This is my problem. Day 4 - Day 3 does not equal the value change of + 135. To get this value, the preceding formula now has to change to ABS(Day 3) - ABS(Day 4).

This is the issue. I need a formula that can work normally when the numbers are postive or when the second value is larger (in terms of absolute value). On the other hand, it needs to recognize the special cases like Day 3 - Day 4. Is this some form of a conditional function?

Running Total 233354-1198-1063-878-658-933-807-657

Percentage Change51.93%-438.42%11.27%17.40%25.06%-41.79%13.50%18.59%

Value Change121-1552135185220-275126150

I want to find the min and max numbers within a thread of numbers that has both positive and negative values. The key is that I want the smallest amount or the largest amount based on the number and not on the positive or negative.

For example, below is my list of numbers.

7

5

2

-5

-6

7

-8

-3

I want the min formula to return 2 and the max formula to return 8.

I have created a Pivot table from a source data file that includes a document status column ('Type I Or C') (I for Invoice & C for Credit) and an Invoice / Credit value column (Invoiced Price). However the values for both invoices and credits are positive so when summed distort the total values.

I am attempting to create an additional column within the Pivot table to convert the credit note values to negative by inserting a calculated field under the formula tab, i.e.

=IF('Type I Or C'="C",-'Invoiced Price','Invoiced Price')

The above formula works fine in a standard worksheet but it is not reckonsing the "C" within the pivot table. If I manually change the value to numeric (i.e. 1 for Invoices and 2 for credits) it works fine, i.e =IF('Type I Or C'="2",-'Invoiced Price','Invoiced Price')

so it appears to be an alpha issue?

I have one debit and one credit column. I want to higlight duplicates, with positive and negative values.

Like this.

Column A

5000

1000

10000

3000

Column B

- 10000

-5000

-3000

-2000

I know how to do the conditional formating to find duplicates when there is only positive or negative numbers, but i don't know how to match both positive and negative numbers.

I am looking for a formula to do the following:

In Tab 1, I have a negative number and the word "Original" next to it. In Tab 2, I have a mix of positive & negative numbers. I want all numbers that are negative to display the word "original" and all positive to display" new." How do I do that? Also, I want the opposite to work as well-- if Tab 1 has a positive number, I want all positive numbers in Tab 2 to display "original."

I have the following formula

=IF(VLOOKUP(F89,'2013 susp 2714035 Reissues'!F:F,1,FALSE)=F89,"yes",FALSE)

That is supposed to look at the tab 2714035 Reissues and find the same dollar amount. The issue Iam having is the dollar amount can be a negative or a positive amount but the formula is only picking up the number if it matches exactly negative to negative or positive to positive. formula to pick up the matching number if its a negative or a positive.

I have a column which is populated with profits and losses from a trading account. Here is an example:

Column I

400

200

-100

-150

-50

What I want to do is average all the profits, and average all the losses so I have two numbers - the average winner and the average loser. Continuing with the example from the 5 trades above, the average winner is 300 and the average loser is -100. How can I do this in excel?

It's a worksheet for testing milk tanks. The issue is as follows:

Column F = Chart Error/This can be either a positive or negative whole number

Column G = Tolerance/This is always a whole positive number

Problem is I want Column H = Status to say "Pass" or "Fail" based on meeting the Column G number. But it's only the number itself (not whether it's Positive or Negative) that matters in determining the P/F status.

Examples:

Column F= -20

Column G= 15

Column H= Fails

or

F= 20

G= 15

H= Fails

The formulas I've been coming up with will show one or the other as Failing but not both + or - numbers if they fail to meet the G Column tolerance number.

Please find the attached MS Excel 2010 file <average set.xlsx>.

There is set of positive set & negative set of values available in the Column A. The values are plotted against Column A in Column B. Light green are positive sets and light yellow are negative sets.

Now I want to calculate the average for the positive set & negative set of values as shown in light majenta in the cells F4:F9. Also all majenta cells to be plotted by formula.

The Column H and Column I also same as like above , but here negative set of numbers starts first.

In my first column I will be entering both negative and positive numbers. In the cell next to it I need the amounts to all show as positive only. So both negative numbers and positive in the first column will all show as positive in the adjacent column/cell.

I want to be able to highlight data in column B where amount is identical (ignore negative sign) only where data in column A is identical.

In this particular case it should highlight 500,-500 where data in column A = ABC & also 100,-100 where data in column A =CAC.

I use currency data pasted from legacy program that pastes dollar values followed by a C or D to represent debit and credits, ie -- 1,000,000.00C or 1,000,000.00D.

Is there some way to remove the letter and correctly format the value to a negative or positive number on a whole worksheet or column?

Currently I am doing this manually one cell at a time.
