## 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?

## 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 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 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 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.

## 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).

## 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.

## 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.

## 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

## Identify Consecutive Numbers Greater Than Zero

Jan 14, 2014

I have the attached table of numbers and I need a formula at the end of each column to identify whether any cells in that column consecutively have numbers in them greater than zero. Ideally by a count of how many cells in the column have consecutive numbers greater than zero (so if there are three 1's in a row and then a zero and then another 2 1's I want it to count 5).Excel Help.xlsx

## Calling Consecutive Numbers Into Ranges

Jun 22, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that has a column of numbers some of which are consecutive, some of which are not. I would like to have a way to lump all of these chunks of consecutive blocks into ranges. For example:

2759
2760
2761
2762
2764
2765
2766
2768
2769
2773

would return something like:

2759 - 2762
2764 - 2766
2768 - 2769
2773

Any ideas?

## Formula To Sum Non-consecutive Numbers In Range?

## Finding Difference Between Non-consecutive Numbers?

Jul 11, 2013

I have got the following issue. I have got a large list of values in a column. I need to detect the the ones which are in non-consecutive order and display the difference in single numbers. For example:

1 fine
2 fine
3 fine
7 - 4,5,6
10 - 8,9

In other words I need to find the missing values and get them displayed.

## Four Consecutive Numbers That Contain Exactly Four Simple Denominator

Jan 8, 2014

The first of two consecutive numbers with exactly two simple denominator are:

14 = 2 × 7
15 = 3 × 5

The first of three consecutive numbers with exactly 3 simple denominator are:

644 = 2 × 7 × 23
645 = 3 × 5 × 43
646 = 2 × 17 × 19

I need to write a program that finds the first four consecutive numbers that contain exactly four simple denominator.

## Generate Consecutive Numbers In An Interval

Feb 7, 2008

I have an interval, for example [1431, 1589] an I need to automatically generate consecutive numbers in this interval - for example 1431.1 , 1431.2 ..... 1588.8, 1588.9, 1589. How can I do that? I know I can do this manually by writing some values and drag down but I need this done automatically.

## Number Of Consecutive Positive Numbers

Jan 13, 2007

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.

## Reduce Consecutive Numbers By Referencing Every Nth
