# Formula To Identify A Sequence?

Nov 29, 2012
formula that will produce the number sequence as shown in the third column of the table. The sequence starts at 1 and if the colour changes then the number is 2 and if the colour changes again then the number is 3 and so on. The part I'm having difficulty with is that if the name in the first column changes then the sequence must reset to the number 1 and become 2,3 etc. as above when the colour changes.

I have two sheets in excel, one contains a list of names and the second is a basic lookup sheet for mail merge purposes.

Basically I want to write a formula in column A (of sheet 2) [current formula is =LabelNames!A2] and in column B the formula is =LabelNames!A3.

I want to drag these formulas down so each one jumps by 2... Ie:

=LabelNames!A2

=LabelNames!A4

=LabelNames!A6

How can I create a sequence with a formula starting in A1 that will give 1,1,2,2,3,3 and so on horizontally?

Have this formula which works fine for finding the largest sequence in a list. (c/o Domenic from [url]

=MAX(FREQUENCY(IF('Overs-Unders'!B3:B1827"",IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH('Overs-Unders'!B3:B1827,{0,"n/a"},0)),ROW('Overs-Unders'!B3:B1827))),IF(('Overs-Unders'!B3:B1827="")+ISNA(MATCH('Overs-Unders'!B3:B1827,{0,"n/a"},0)),ROW('Overs-Unders'!B3:B1827))))

Now i need to:

(a) from the cells B5:CC5 that this formula runs through find the highest figure and return the name in Row 1 of that column.

(b) adjust above formula to get something now that ignores any run that contains 7 or more consecutive "n/a"s

(c) get a formula that counts the latest run. eg. from the bottom up (at the moment data only goes down to row 200)

I need help with creating a simple formula.

What I have:

..A B C D E

1 3 4 6 5

2 6 2 3 8

I want to identify that A1, B1, C1, D1 are > B2. My formula will be placed in E1 so then I want a value of 1 to show up in cell E1 indicating the identification was successful. I can't figure out how to make this happen. My formulas so far in E1: =sum(A1>B2)&(B1>B2)&(C1>B2)&(D1>B2) This formula comes up with 0FALSEFALSE instead of the value of 1 I am desiring.

What I want:

..A B C D E

1 3 4 6 5 1

2 6 2 3 8

I'm trying to add a formula to a sheet comparing multiple suppliers rates for different items, in a table similar to this:

Item Supplier 1 Supplier 2 Supplier 3

Socks $3 $4 $5

Shoes $10 $16 $12

Pants $17 $11 $12

Shirts $79 $25 $20

I've added the usual max, min, average formulas to it, however what I want to do is create a column which will tell me which supplier has the lowest rate, therefore for it would show as a column showing Supplier 1 is cheapest for socks, Supplier 1 cheapest for shoes, Supplier 2 for pants and Supplier 3 for shirts.

create a formula for my data. I want to pun binning as per criteria given.

Bin 1: IR < 150 & VR >62

Bin 2: 150<IR<300 & VR >62

Bin 3: IR >300 & 62< VR <30

Bin 4: IR >300 & VR <30

Example data

Data 1 : IR = 80 & VR =68 --> Bin 1

Data 2 : IR = 200 & VR =68 --> Bin 2

Data 3 : IR = 300 & VR =25 --> Bin 4

Data 4 : IR = 350 & VR =45 --> Bin 3

I am trying to identify new products that are not in my 'stocklist'. In the 'new prices' sheet I have =IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(C4,'Stock List'!C:C,0)),"","NEW") dragged down in column G. Though its throwing out 'New' on every item which is incorrect as there are loads of items already in both sheets. This sounds confusing but if you look at the attached im sure you will see what im trying to do.

One last problem is that some of the new codes have zeros in front of them so the formula will have to discount the 1st couple of digits IF they happen to be zero. example; C5480 in stock list is exactly the same as C398 in new prices. But because there is a zero in front of the C398 then the formula does not recognise that the two are the same.

Im using a formula to identify new part numbers. The formula is: =IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(A217,Existing!A:A,0)),"","NEW"). However you can clearly see from the attached that if has flagged a duplicate part number as new. Why would it do that? Check out A1368 in existing and A217 in new.

I am trying to loop through all the worksheets in active workbook. But I want to ignore all those sheets which does not have a single formula containing cell. I mean if the sheet has at least one cell with a formula then the loop should work on that sheet else ignore that sheet.

I have two spread sheets from one of our suppliers, one was issued in 2008 and the other 2009. The newly issued sheet has about 400 extra items. How can I identify these new items of stock easily. I have attached both sheets for you to look at.

This should be pretty straight forward but the solution has escaped me so far. I have some formulas that ratably spread monthly budgets across the life of a program. Ocasionally these budget formulas are hard keyed over with a value which overrides the ratable budget formula. I would like to conditionally format all cells that contain hard keyed values so they don't get inadvertently copied to new budget lines.

I receive monthly expenditure returns from different departments which I have to consolidate. The problem I'm encountering is that some departments submit their data as a monthly figure and some as the cumulative position. It would be useful if I had a formula that identified what data type was submitted and from that calculate both the monthly and cumulative figure.

If you look at the attached example I'd like to input a formula in columns I and J that uses the data contained in columns B to E to calculate the monthly and cumulative expenditure figures.

I have the following data:

Column A = Date

Column B = Reservations made per day

For ex:

Then I have a look up table where based on the date ranges it assigns a week number.

WeekDATE Range 1Date Range 2

718-Feb-1124-Feb-11

825-Feb-1103-Mar-11

904-Mar-1110-Mar-11

1408-Apr-1114-Apr-11

1515-Apr-1121-Apr-11

1622-Apr-1128-Apr-11

I am looking for a fomula that would assign a week to the corresponding dates on column A and tha would then add all of the reservations booked for each week.

I paste new data into a sheet of a monthly report I prepare. For this sheet, the # of data rows change (and is unpredictable) every month. I need the value inside a specific cell that dynamcially moves up and down based on the # of rows for that month (because it's below the rows of data).

So I made a formula to identify the exact cell # every month.

Example:

This month the exact cell is F255 in the "Refi" sheet.

So my formula in the "Summary" sheet cell A1 first finds the cell row # only (255) and since it's always column F, in B1 I have

VB:

="F" & (A1)

This outputs "F255" in B1, successfully identifying the target cell.

Now how do I write a formula in C1 to grab the value from whatever cell is named in B1. (For this month, the value in cell F255 from the "Refi" sheet)

I have a range of unlocked cells (B5:S10) that users enter data in. This sum of this data is then charted. The formula (sum) in a cell equals zero even when there is no data entered by the user. This zero is then charted.

I need to be able to plot the zeros if the user enters zeros but not plot the zero if the cells are blank.

What I was attempting to do is to use the worksheet change event to add the formulas to a cell so that the chart does not plot the value until something was added.

In my change event I need to know that a cell in the range (B5:S10) was changed and that if it was D7 (for example) that I need a formula enterd in D11 [=SUM(D5:D10)]. If it was I5 then the formula would have to go in I11 [=SUM(I5:I10)].

My question is, a formula was provided to me that add's a comma and a space after a 15 digit sequence of numbers, that formula is:

=IF(MID(C378,LEN(C378)-1,1)="W",C378&" ,",C378)

And what that does is it would change data in a cell that looks like this

01-02-034-05-W2 TO 02-03-045-06-W2

To this:

01-02-034-05-W2 TO 02-03-045-06-W2 ,

The formula works great, thanks to the help of the posters!

However I just ran into an issue, what if I have a set of data in a cell that looks like this:

01-02-034-05-W2 TO 02-03-045-07-W2

02-02-034-05-W2 TO 02-03-045-07-W2

03-02-034-05-W2 TO 02-03-045-07-W2

And I need a space and a comma at the end of each sequence, so the above would change to this after the formula is applied:

01-02-034-05-W2 TO 02-03-045-07-W2 ,

02-02-034-05-W2 TO 02-03-045-07-W2 ,

03-02-034-05-W2 TO 02-03-045-07-W2 ,

Now the data in the cell is wrapped so it lists one set of numbers, then the next set, then the next set as seen above.

I'm trying to write some code to calculate the value of a Fibonacci Sequence, at a random point in the sequence.

For example if I have 5, 15, 30, 50, 75, 105... and my random value is 3 it would return 30.

Being new to VB the only way I've of thought of to do this is a massive if then statement.

I have a dynamic worksheet containing a variable number of rows that I would like to have automatically numbered when I run my VBA script. I used Dave Hawley's code as follows, with a modification to begin at cell A2, but it doesn't seem to work, as it only numbers cell A2 and not the rest.

VB:

With Range("A2")

.Value = 1

.AutoFill .Range("A2:A" & RowTotal), xlLinearTrend

.Range("A" & RowTotal + 1).Clear

End With

RowTotal is just a variable that holds the results of a simple last row finder. How to make this work?

I'm trying to automate a sequence.

I was gonna explain it but I couldn't make myself clear so I took a screenshot:

sequence.PNG

folder_type is what the user types, (for example, the letter "A"), and folder_code is a sequence that should auto-generate according to what was manually inserted in the folder_type field.

What formula could I use for this process?
