## Counting Consecutive Numbers In A Column?

Jul 1, 2014

I have 2 Columns. One column represents calendar dates and the other column represents numbers between 0 and 7.

Therea re 10000 rows in this table.

I would like to count how many consecutive days I observe certain numbers numbers ( i.e 3+, 4+, 5+, etc)

## Counting Consecutive Text Strings

Jan 27, 2010

I want to count the number of consecutive text entries in the one column. Skip a certain entry eg: NA, then count the next string of the same entry. eg:

Apples
Apples
Apples
Apples
NA
NA
NA
Apples
Apples
Apples
NA

So the output that I am after will be counting the number of Apples in a row 4 & 3 but skipping NA.

## Counting Consecutive Cells That Are Greater Than Or Less Than 0

Nov 12, 2009

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/excel-gene...-than-0-a.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

## Counting How Many Consecutive Cells Where Value Is Greater Than Or Equal To +1?

Jan 13, 2014

Need a formula for counting how many consecutive cells where the value is gretaer than or equal to +1

For example 1,

J18 = 7
K18 = 9
L18 = 3
M18 = 2
N18 = 8
O18 = 1
P18 = 8
Q18 = -17

In the above example the result would be 7

Example 2:

J12 = -22
K12 = 9
L12 = 4

In the above example the result would be 0 since the 1st value was -22

## Counting Consecutive Cells In Range With Blanks And Displaying Specific Value?

Mar 27, 2014

I wanted to count the number of instances that Matt's been late. If there are consecutive timestamps (ex. 600-620, 620-640) that he's been late, I wanted Excel to display 1 and then I'll just sum it up. Or if Excel can do this directly, add all the instances because what I actually need is the total per person.

In this example, I would need a result of 4 instances.

tell if the blank cells will affect the formula or if I still need to do something about them.

## Counting Consecutive Results In Selection Of Data?

Oct 2, 2013

I'm trying to find a way to take a data set and write an excel equation/s to find out how many times in that column of data a certain result (number or letter) occurs consecutively for more than 5 (hoping that this is also customizable) times. For example....

DATE
USER A
1/1/2013
NO

[Code]....

Above are two columns, one with the date and another with the data I'd like to search through. So I'm hoping that I can write an equation/s that tells me how many times a certain value, in this case I'm looking for "No" occurs more than 5 times consecutively in the line of data. For example, for this particular data set, the final answer would be 2. There are only two instances where 5 or more cells with a "No" value follow each other.

## Create Consecutive Numbers After Text

Jun 23, 2008

I have a column with many different names and want to put a number at the end of the name. Is there an excel formula that can do this? For example:

ColA
SELL
SELL
SELL
SELL
SELL
SELL
SELL
SELL
SELL
SELL
KEEP
KEEP
KEEP
KEEP

DESIRED RESULT:
SELL 01
SELL 02
SELL 03
SELL 04
SELL 05
SELL 06
SELL 07
SELL 08
SELL 09
SELL 10
KEEP 1
KEEP 2
KEEP 3
KEEP 4

As you can see, if the number of consecutive texts goes over 10, I need it to add a "0" onto the beginning of the number.

## Validate Cells For Numeric Range Of Consecutive Numbers

Mar 19, 2008

I would like to " Validate Data In A Vertical Column To Not Allow Non Consecutive Numbers Less Than 100"

756415
10
456132
7
456123
12

The above is a valid list. Below would be an invalid list:

756415
10
13
456132
7
7
456123
12
13

This part of a larger scope, but I have a macro that will crash if the data entered is entered by way of the invalid list, it works perfectly with the valid list. I am limited to one column user's will input the data via a Barcode scanner that after it recieves input it enter's a "Hard" return. This is a warehouse pickticket program, user's scan their ticket id's (numbers greater than 100000) and then the number of lines on the ticket (usually not greater than 15)

## Finding The Maximum Occurrence Of Text Over Non-consecutive Cells

Jun 15, 2009

I�m trying to figure out how to show the highest occurrence of text in 10 cells which are not next to each other. Some of the cells will also be blank And the other thing is if there is a draw e.g. 5 2Z and 5 1Z I'd like it to show that, either with a word e.g. "DRAW" or anything really other than just putting whichever of the 2 "notes" in it feels like

Attached is a spreadsheet (all other data deleted) that shows what I am wanting to do � I have typed the results I am after directly in to the cells in columns BE & BF � BE will need some kind of countif, but when I try that is says I have too many arguments! I have to leave the columns in between blank in this case as they have other info in them, which is really annoying as if those 10 cells were contiguous then the formula

## Consecutive Number Counting

Nov 26, 2012

I have excel sheets with 71936 rows of data collected ~30 times a second for 40 minutes during and driving simulator drive (for 51 participants! all in separate worksheets). The output I get from the simulator includes speed, lane position etc. I've been averaging the data out into minute blocks for most variables, but what I really need to know is: if they exit the "lane" for more than 3 seconds, and if so, how many times they exit the lane in each minute.

Column A is the minute, column B is their lane position. Lane position ranges from -540 to 540. The middle of the left hand lane is -180 (the left hand lane ranges from -360 to 0 - we drive on the left in Australia). If they exit the left hand side of the lane, the lane position value will be between -360 and-540, and if they exit the right hand side the lane position value is 0 or greater.

A formula in a new column that can give a "1" each time they exit the lane for more than 3 seconds would be great, then I think I can make it sum how many times they do it in each minute.

## Counting Consecutive Zeros

Sep 18, 2006

I have read every single question on counting consecutive numbers in this forum but could not find what I need. I am trying to count the number of consecutive zeros in a row till the cell >0 then the counter is reset and restarts. One point to pay attention is that the number that is>0 when counting starts is included. I wrote a macro for it but somehow I am having problems with it. It returns 0. I want it to be for example

In the excel sheet
Numbers 160 0 0 400 0 0 200 0
Counts 3 3 2

Sub value_count()
Dim count As Integer
Dim k As Integer
Dim j As Integer
For k = 1 To 10
If Cells(1, k).Value > 0 Then
j = k
Do Until Cells(1, j).Value <> Cells(1, j + 1).Value
count = count + 1
j = j + 1
Loop
Cells(2, j).Value = count
If count >= 1 Then
k = k + count
End If
count = 0
End If
Next k
End Sub

## Counting Same Values In Consecutive Columns

Dec 11, 2013

I was trying to see the values only if the same value arrived more than three times in the given range.

Ex:

ABCDEFGHIJ
1AAAABAA
2

in the given range A1:J1, I would like to count 'A' only if it repeats more than or equal to 3 times. For row 1 I should get count as 4.

## Counting Consecutive Values Left To Right?

Jul 18, 2014

I have been trying to adapt a couple of the posts I've seen on this topic but they seem to refer to counting in rows and I'm having trouble translating that to columns.

I have a simple situation. I have 1s or 0s in columns from left to right. I only want to count the first occurrence of consecutive "1"s and only if the series starts with "1" in the left most column. (I am trying to calculate consecutive years of giving and the columns are FY14, FY13, FY12, etc. Only people who gave in FY14 would count.)

Example:

Row 2: 11101010
Row 3: 11001011
Row 4: 00100110

I would like Row 2 to count "3", Row 3 to count "2" and Row 4 to count "0".

## Consecutive Number Counting Formula

Oct 9, 2009

In cells v43:v52 I have data which will change often the data is always either a 1,-1 or a 0, I need a way to count from the bottom up and ignore anything that is not part of the chain. It can also contain 0 in rows that are not populated yet but the 0s will always be on the bottom and never in the middle or top.

I.E. in 3 weeks it could be

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

I would want the formula to spit out 3 because it was 1 3 times in a row..

Now say in week 5 it is
1
1
1..............................

## Counting Consecutive Dates As A Single Occasion

Jan 8, 2010

I'm trying to do is to get Excel to look at the dates and, if they are consecutive (Fri - Mon inclusive is also counted as consecutive) I need Excel to tell me that this is one occasion. It then needs to count each seperate occasion.

I've attached an example with each different occasion colour coded. In the example there a five occasions. Thus the Bradford Factor would be 187.5 (5*5*7.5).

## Looping Through Rows Counting Cells With Numbers?

Oct 31, 2013

First, I have to say that I am very weak in VBA.

I have a section of code where I need to count the cells from J through BF in rows 42 through 76. The code snippet I'm working on is:

Code:
For r = 42 To 76 Step 1
if Application.WorksheetFunction.Count(Range("J" & r:"BP" & r)) = 0 Then
Err = Err + 1

[Code]....

The code checker highlights the ':' in the 'Range .... = 0' with the message "Expected: list separator or )".

## Counting Cells With Numbers In Column That Contains Specific Words

May 9, 2014

I'm trying to build a function, but I haven't been able to successfully navigate some of the eccentricities of Excel formula-building.

Right now I am working on counting all of the cells that contain numbers (so likely just a =COUNT function), but will be eventually getting other descriptive stats as well. My problem is that I would like to create a formula that will perform the counting/mean calculation, etc., but only on a specific column that has the header cell that contains several specific words. Rather than having to type in the target words for each column, I would like to have the target words in the function be imported from multiple designated cells.

For example,

I want to find how many numbered cells are found in column E headed as "dog brown," but I also have columns headed as "cat brown" "dog black" etc. (which I will be using the formula on later) to paint a small picture, in my descriptive table, "dog" is in B31 and "brown" is in C30, then "cat" in B32 and "black" in D30.

## Adding Numbers In Multiple Cells Where Individual Cells Contain Both Numbers And Text?

Jan 8, 2014

I have a column that looks like the following and I need to add the numbers:

27 skids
31 skids
56 skids
13 skids

The unit "skids" is constant. The answer I am looking for is "127" or "127 skids"

## Counting Text WITHIN Cells

Mar 3, 2009

I have a long list of cells each one containing a list of attributes similar to the following:

MBLB
MB9A
MCDA
MCDB
MCDC
MCDG
MCD7
MCD8
MCD9
MCE+
MCE0
MCE9
MCVO
MCVS
MEW5
ME2V
MLRP

Bear in mind that the above is in 1 cell and in-between each attribute is an - Alt Enter

Now I want to know how many cells a certain attribute is contained in e.g. "MCE+". I can do this on a one by one basis using the "Contains" Filter. However I would like to have the FULL list of my attributes and know how many times each one is mentioned.

## Counting Text Cells

May 31, 2009

I have table in excel 2003, where in one column I have different values in cells, such as A, B, C, D,E, F, etc., etc ( as text values as an example) plus some blank cells, how to calculate number of cells with values different from/not equal to B,C without blank cells?

## Counting Text Cells With Strikethrough Font!

Sep 18, 2007

I have a column of names, some of which are manually formatted with the strikethrough font.

I need to know how to count the cells that contain text formatted in this way. This total will then be used within a longer formula to produce a net result.

I have found tips on counting coloured cells but none that seem to apply to this form of font format.

## VLookup For Numbers Contained Within Cells With Numbers And Text

Sep 26, 2012

A
B
C
D
E
F
G
23445566894 Brwn pdc aft
Cat1
45687930596
\$5
45687930596 Gld wdget adi
Cat2
23445566894
\$6

In the example above, I would like to do a vlookup in column C that matches the digits in column A to those in column F, with the output being the corresponding value in column G. I believe it involves the left function but not sure how to really use it here.

## Consecutive Numbers

Jul 22, 2008

I have 3 columns, in column 1 and 2 there will be numbers and I want automatically to get in column 3 the range of numbers between Column 1 and Column 2
Column 1 - 100
Column 2 - 500
Column 3 - 100, 101, 102, ..., 500

## Count Consecutive Numbers

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
