Finding Location Of Last String Of 26+ Consecutive Blanks In Row?

Jan 18, 2013

I've attached an example of the data I am trying to solve this problem for. Basically I am looking for strings of 26 blanks or more in a row, but I want to determine the ending location of the last string of 26+ blanks. I've been able to determine the location of the maximum string of blanks, but that max group of blanks isn't always the last set over 26.

Any link to find the location of last string of blanks of 26 or more? The example I attached is a good example since there are two strings of 26+ blanks with the last one being shorter. I've also include the answer I'm looking at the end of the data in the example.

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.

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

Finding The Maximum Occurrence Of Text Over Non-consecutive Cells

Jun 15, 2009

Im 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

Finding Value And Copying It Down To New Location In A Loop

May 18, 2012

I have a worksheet with a various data in column B.

1/ I want to search column B one row at a time looking for a string value of 'Town'.

2/ When the first row containing this string is found select a left 35 chars substring of the value in the column C and copy this down in column A if the value in Column B = '0000/00' UNTIL the string value of 'Town' changes

3/ Repeat 2/ until the last instance of 'Town' has been processed.

4/ Column A will have some empty cells where Town has not been populated. These rows should be deleted and replaced with one empty row between each change of Town value

3/ Continue pasting this string value into each successive row

Finding Minimum Value In Column That Has Blanks And Break?

Sheet 1, column B range is B4:B39 & B54:B85 Data will look like this

Or very similar to it, I want to be able to find in order smallest to largest across 6 cells, meaning in cell c4 I want 4-333, d4 20-55, e4 20-77 and so on for only 6 cells as that is all I have room for on the sheet. of course if there are only 2 sets of data then 3-6 will be blank. but I think if I can get something working I can add that part.

Finding Difference Between Latest And Previous Value Excluding Blanks

Dec 4, 2013

I need a spreadsheet to record the number of calls taken by my staff YTD, and have it laid out as follows:

Column A Column B Column C

1 Date Calls Taken Increase
2 01/01 10
3 02/01 13 3
4 03/01 19 6

The "Increase" is a simple =B4-B3 etc. But, there is a problem...

Say for example a member of staff is ill one day and therefore doesn't take any calls, I end up with a 'blank' cell in column 'B'...

Column A Column B Column C

1 Date Calls Taken Increase
2 01/01 10
3 02/01 13 3
4 03/01 19 6
5 04/01 -19
6 05/01 25 25

My problem is the increase in calls from 03/01 to 05/01 YTD ISN'T 25, it's 6.

Is there a formulae I can use that works out the difference between the latest number of calls taken and the last number of calls taken (excluding the 'blank' cells)?

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.

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 brain is overloaded w/googling & using trial & error.

Finding The First Number In A String?

Jul 31, 2014

I'm trying to extract the number portion from the following string. I'm trying to use FIND to find the first digit between 1 and 2 so I used an "or" argument along with the code number, however it's not working here. What I really want to do is find any digit between 1 and 9 in the string, however I started with this formula for now. why this doesn't work and provide a better formula. I want to understand why this didn't work to understand the functions better. Text string is as follows "standard VAT rate: 20% (Jan 1984)". The formula I used in the following =MID(A253,FIND(OR(Char(49),CHAR(50)),A253),2) where A253 contains the string. Is it possible to use a logical argument within a find?

For i = 1 To Len(Word)

If IsNumeric(Mid(Word, i + 1, 1)) = False Then
Exit Function
SecondNumberInString = Mid(Word, i + 1, 1)
End If
End If

NumbersInString = FirstNumberInString & SecondNumberInString

Lookup But First Finding A Unique String?

Jul 3, 2014

mockup.xlsxStarting out with a 9 by 11 grid.

Column A will have times that need to be referenced in a lookup. (Ex Sat 8:00am)

Row 1 will have basball field codes reference with a lookup. (Example Field 4

Cells B2:I11 have distinct codes or possibly nothing. (An example would be: Tier 1 A1-A3)

These codes will move around from time to time. They will always remain distinct within the grid, but could appear in any of the cells from B2:I11.

I have 2 columns I want to populate with values from the grid.

First is Fields. I want the first cell to populate with the baseball field found in row 1 of which the code Tier1 A1-A3 falls under.

For example if this season Tier1 A1-A3 is found in the column under Field 4, then I need to return Field 4 as a result.

Second is the time. I want the time to be populated based on what row the Tier1 A1-A3 code falls in.

For example if Tier1 A1-A3 is in the Sat 8:00am row, then I need that value returned.

In short, I need to search the grid and find a given value. I then need to use a lookup (or other tool) to return the first value in that row. And secondly via lookup return the first value in that column.

edit: added spreadsheet example. First sheet is grid in question, 2nd sheet is a typical schedule.

The first Team (Scared Hitless) is A1, the team they play first is Sands Duel Fuel (A3) They play at 11:00am on Field TR3.

You will see on the grid under TR3 and Sat 11:00 the code Tier 4 A1v3. This code is what I want to search and correlate into times on the schedule rather than doing the data entry by hand.

Find Is Not Finding Character String?

Jun 11, 2014

I have a cell that has approx 22000 characters. I'm trying to remove a specific character string from a cell by doing a find and replace with "". It works for characters in the first part of the cell but not for characters in the last part of the cell.

Example: I do a find/replace for the characters 21242 to "" in column A and I get the expected results. I do a find/replace on 69294 to "", again I get the expected results, but if I do a find/replace on 85203 to "", I get "Excel cannot find what I am searching for" (but its there!)

My cell size is within the max size of 32,767 characters so not sure why its not working.

Attached a sample worksheet.
