I'm attempting to summarise several hundred control charts.

One thing I'd like to do is be able to put in a formula to count the maximum number of successive entries that are all the same side of the mean.

Another related thing is to be able to count the longest run where successive values are the same.

How I can show the longest string in a column, I've tried to find a formula that does this but it only shows the number of characters, not the actual string contents.

View 2 Replies View RelatedI have a list of dates in column A (sequential from low to high).

I have corresponding rainfall data in column S.

I am trying to find the longest run of 0's in the rainfall data and return the start and end dates. It would be great if i could tell it (in cell C8) to find the longest run below this number.

ie: i say i want to find the longest run of numbers below 5.

I am looking for a formula that returns the date of the first and last value in the longest continued range.

In the example:

CD30CLA3101/02/200833201/03/20086

3301/04/200853401/05/20083501/06/200863601/07/200823701/08/2008

The two formula should return the two dates in blue.

I had asked about automatically naming regions and this is an extension of that post because it's closed. The code we ended up with to name the region is:

Dim sNm As String, sRT As String

If Intersect(Target, Rows(1)) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub '------------------->

If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub '---------------------------------------->

sNm = Replace(Trim(Target), " ", "_")

sRT = "=offset(" _

& Target.Address _

& ", 1, 0, counta(" _

& Cells(2, Target.Column).Resize(Rows.Count - Target.Row).Address & ") )"

ThisWorkbook.Names.Add Name:=sNm, RefersTo:=sRT

My problem now is that I need to have the regions be the length of the longest column. I've tried using a few different ways using the worksheet range but I can't seem to get it to work.

I am trying to figure out how to create a formula or VBA to count how many contiguous 0's there are in a specific row...and then drag this formula down many rows..for example - if a row of data contains 1,3,0,0,0,4,5,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,5,3,1,0 I want the result to be 7, because 7 is the longest streak of contiguous 0's.

View 9 Replies View RelatedI'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.

I have a database application which appends an "A" to the sequence number each time an entry is amended and then posts it as a new row in the database. This means there can be multiple entries with the same number but with different amount of "A"'s afterwards.

e.g.

Cell A6 contains seq no 1

Cell A7 contains seq no 2 - Seq no 1 is subsequently amended so...

Cell A8 contains seq no 1A - 1A is subsequently amended so...

Cell A9 contains seq no 1AA - and so on and so forth..........

What i am trying to achieve is a formula which will look at the record number which is required (i.e. 1) and will search for record 1 with the most number of "A"'s appended. This way the user will only be amending the most up to date record.

The formula i have tried (but doesn't work) is:

=INDEX(A6:A65536,MATCH(B2&MAX(LEN(A6:A65536)),A6:A65536,1),0)

(B2 is the record the user wants to amend)

I am trying to do the following with VBA.

What i need is to find out the last cell with data and then selecting the whole range and copying it.

Please see the below.

As you can see, the column with the "longest" data range is B9,C9,D9,E9.

I need a VBA code to detect which Column has the longest Data and from there copy the entire range.

Hence, in this case, the range to be copied is From A2:J9.

Column A

Column B

Column C

Column D

Column E

Column F

Column G

Column H

Column I

Column J

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?

I have a task to identify all the numbers in sequence in a worksheet, how do I do that?

Ex:

Column A

1

2

3

4

5

7

9

10

11

12

13

14

15

16

20

21

22

Desired output 1-5,7,9,10-16,20-22.

I am fighting with this for a longer time now and can't find a solution:

is it possible in Excel to generate a number sequence (to create a list for auto fill) representing numbers like this:

000001

000006

000002

000007

000003

000008

000004

000009

000005

000010

000011

000016

000012

000017

000013

000018

000014

000019

000015

000020

and so on till 001000

I want to create a 4 character alphanumeric sequence. The sequence is to be like this: a1a1-z10z10. If it's a number, increment 1 until you reach 10, then move to the next column, if it's a letter, increment a until z, then move to the next column. Excel's autofill feature doesn't seem to work well for me due to the letters involved, so if someone has a macro handy that would be great.

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.

So my first worksheet' name is 3114

My macro is : [Code] ..........

I have a problem, I have a formula which counts the number of instances that occur and assigns the value as 1 for every instance, however I want the formual to also recognise that if a number of instances occur in succession a value of 1 should also be assigned.

E.g. if a person is absent for 1 day the formula assigns a value of 1

if a person is off for 3 days in succession the formula assigns a value of 1

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
