# Identify Numbers In Sequence

Aug 23, 2007I 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

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'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 cells O1 to O300 numbers in random sequences of no more than 10

I need to average the 5 highest numbers in each sequence eg:

O P

1 2 16 (result)

2 20

3 4

4 6

5 14

6 12

7 8

8 10

9 16

10 18

11 blank cell

12 15 9 (result)

13 3

14 6

15 12

16 9

17 blank cell

18 blank cell

19 4 23 (result)

20 16

21 20

22 40

23 8

24 11

25 28

26 blank cell

down to 300 rows, the sequence of numbers can be from 1 to 10 but never

more than 10

I got a function : =IF(COUNT(O1:O10>=10,AVERAGE(LARGE(O1:O10,{1,2,3,4,5})),"

") but that works only for 10 numbers and not for less

There are 350 numbers in a column, 7 digits in each cell. I want to see which cells have 3 or more consecutive numbers. Only looking at the last 3 digits. Example. 1960657. 1960658. 1960659. 1960660. Has 4 consecutive numbers.

Conditional formatting ? or other?

I am trying to "auto fill" a column with numbers in sequential order. (1,2,3,4,5...) I typed in 1,2,3... in the first cells and clicked on the black corner dot to drag the sequence down. It keeps putting in 1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3..... I have also went into the advanced options and clicked the "enable fill handle and cell drag-and-drop" and also Alert before overwriting cells" and it still fills in 1,2,3,1,2,3....

View 9 Replies View RelatedI have a list of random numbers in column A the number range is from 0 to 20,000. What I am trying to do is to count the sequential numbers after each random number....sorry this is not really explained well so I willl use a numeric example.

Above is what I have in column A you can see that my number range starts a 23 so I would like to count the sequential numbers that occur from 23 in this case it would be count(23,24,25) giving the answer 3 I would like this answer to be inserted into column B next to 23 and the numbers that were counted in this formula then be deleted as rows (i.e. where the number 24 and 25 was counted then the rows containing these numbers are deleted), The macro moves then to count the next number.

In the case of just a single number then a value of 1 is entered into the column next to the number indicating that there was only one number in that sequence.

I was wondering whether it was possible to search for a sequence of numbers.

For example, if this is down a column:

A1: 5

A2: 4

A3: 5

A4: 6

A5: 9

Is it possible to have a find function to search for the sequence of numbers "4 + 5" and consequently highlight cells A2 and A3?

I have a table that receives the number sequence 1 and sequence number 0.

I need to calculate the highest sequence numbers that repeat in Secunia lines.

I have a sequence number 1, where it repeats 5 times segudamente.that is greater than other sequences.

Attempting to do a spreadsheet for my golf club, to record scores, etc...

Managed to get it to pretty much what I want despite some very extreme looking formulae! So for some scores such as 56,56,57,57,54,54, Rank would just give me 3,3,5,5,1,1, so I have put a second column next to 56,56,57,57,54,54 where I input scores to seperate ties (better back nine scores), so in the above I would have for example 30,29 next to the two 56s, 27,29 next to the two 57s, and 27,28 next to the two 54s, so the rank would return 4,3,5,6,1,2. I have gone three stages further, so if, the back nine score was also tied, I have a column for the last 6 hole score, the last 3 hole score and even the last hole score. This is some serious formulae at this point. However, I now want the OPTION to rank the original data as 2,2,3,3,1,1 if I don't put any data in the back nine column.

This is so that I can input doubles scores on the same spreadsheet as singles scores, so if two people shoot the same score in singles I can input the back 9 scores etc to decide who comes out ahead, but in doubles I would just leave the back nine score blank, and then two people would share 1st in the rank, but then I need two 2nd ranks NOT 3rd ranks as it currently is.

Just so you can see how complex it is the current forumlae in the rank is here is an example:

=IF(O7="","",IF(K$2="MEDAL",RANK(O7,O$7:O$255,1)

+SUMPRODUCT(--(O7=O$7:O$255),--(P7>P$7:P$255))

+SUMPRODUCT(--(O7=O$7:O$255),--(P7=P$7:P$255),--(Q7>Q$7:Q$255))

[Code] .....

There are other things in there to sort out a few other issues as well, but I cant see the wood for the trees so to speak, to get it todo what I want!

I have also attached a sample from my spreadsheet to better demonstrate what I want!

I'd like Excel to run a check to see if a row of numbers runs in sequence.

*As in row 4, the numbers dont have to incriment each time

*As in row 2, there may be gaps in the data

*As in row 6, the data cant increase and then decrease. Each subsequent number must be the same or high than the previous

*There could be varying amounts of numbers per row, hence the results being in column R

As an added bonus it'd be nice to see where an error occurs, but just knowing theres an error (column R) is the primary goal.

Basically I'm trying to look up a series of numbers against a separate row of numbers and look for a match regardless or number order.

For example

If you look at the above picture I'm trying to do a query of some sort that will look up the numbers in A8:G8 in then search each row in the above table ie look for the numbers in B1:J1, B2:J2,B3:J3 etc I need to be able to search each row and look for the sequence of numbers regardless of order, if there is or inst a match for all numbers it should look at the next row and so on (maybe multiple matches). If there is a match then it should display the Name located in column "A" into cell G8. In this example to Jarrad row contains the numbers located in A8:G8. If there is no match it should display "None".

I'm trying to find any easy way to do this as I have over 500 rows I'm trying to query. The number's in A8:G8 in this example could also be more or less, ie here I have included 6 numbers but this could be 3 or 9 etc.

I'm use to highlighting two cells, find the plus, and copying a list of numbers down about 10 rows. Is there a macro instruction or VB instruction that will do the same?

Example,

Before:

G1010

G1011

After:

G1010

G1011

G1012

G1013

G1014

G1015

G1016

G1017

G1018

G1019

G1010

I would like to place in sequence increasing the numbers of one I creak in a cell.

In the formula I determine it I creak and the corresponding frame number to the placed ones.

The problem is that he is accumulated only the greater and not sequencia it.

I am setting up a spreadsheet with two columns. The first column will contain a persons name the second column will contain four numbers.

Name Numbers

Joe 1,3,12,24

John 4,12,23,24

Jill 6,14,19,26

I need to be able to search to find the following: the correct sequence of numbers e.g. if 1,3,12,24 were pulled out then that search is easy. If I was looking for someone who had the numbers 1,12,24 then I have a problem. I was thinking about putting the four numbers in to four separate columns but my Excel knowledge is poor.

I have 2 columns,

column A has a series of 8 digit numbers (some will match some will not) sorting in A-z order from lowest to highest value.

Column B is blank at the moment.

What I want

In column B i need to add numbers starting at 1 and moving down in sequence.

If more than one rows have the same number in column A they get the same numbe rin Column B

It's really a pain or have to hand type in the numbers and I can't figure out a easy way to do this.

Attached example.

Tab 1 = Origanl Data

Tab 2 = results i'm lookin for.

I'm a basic excel user really and cannot find a function that will allow me to complete the following:

CELL A1 includes the following sequence of numbers: 1,2,1,0,2,3

I would like to know how to put a formula/function into CELL B1 that sums up the sequence of numbers in CELL A1 (i.e 1+2+1+0+2+3)

I have a document that is a subject index for book that has terms that reference page numbers. The structure is for example: Employment, 587, 592, 553, 605, 233 The term is always following by comma and then space and listing of page numbers that subject reference applies. In many cases the page number references are out of sequence and I need them to be in numerical sequence. i.e. Employment, 233, 553, 587, 592, 605 There are many subject terms in index and need to check and fix sequence of page references for each.

I have sentence in cell A1 which contain number and text. I want to extract number out of that sentence. there is one thing common in this sentence is /.

Every cell contain this sign /.

I need 6 number from left side of / and all other number of right side.

Example sentence is as below

what i need is 020512/4587986532 to be extracted from that sentence. Sentece lenth and right side numbers of / are not constant.

Can i get Any formula ?

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

View 2 Replies View RelatedIm 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.

View 5 Replies View RelatedI am working on a spreadsheet in Excel '07 that will pull data from online and reformat it in a way that another program can digest. The last thing I need is for excel to recognize if there is a 6 digit number in a specific column.

This is tricky for two reasons:

1. Numbers come in three different formats, ### ###, ######, and ###.###

2. Sometimes there is also text within the cell, however I need to pull out just the 6 digits, and place them in another cell with format ### ###

I'm trying to create a list of missing numbers in a range, but I can't fiure out how to do it. The problem lies in that the range of numbers is in the middle of a larger number. ie. xxx-xx-0001-xx would be number 1, and xxx-xx-0500-xx would be number 500.

I need to scan multiple sheets containing these numbers, and produce a list of the numbers missing from that range.

Example:

Sheet1 has xxx-xx-0001-xx through xxx-xx-0009-xx, and xxx-xx-0018-xx through xxx-xx-0042-xx.

Sheet2 has xxx-xx-0053-xx through xxx-xx-0062-xx, and xxx-xx-0067-xx through xxx-xx-0072-xx.

Sheet3 needs to have a function that produces a list showing xxx-xx-0010-xx through xxx-xx-0017-xx, xxx-xx-0043-xx through xxx-xx-0052-xx, and xxx-xx-0063-xx through xxx-xx-0066-xx.

I need to be able to do this without VBA. The list doesn't necessarily have to have a different number per cell, it could even show them all on 1 cell if it's easier, but it would be more presentable if it was 1 number per cell in a row or column.

I am working with reference numbers which follow the following format:

My boss gave me a project and need to be done as soon as possible. Basically, i just need to join all of database and then identify duplicates and put them in another sheet in order to investigate if there are any double payments.

Duplicates can be:

- invoices with same vendor name having same or comparable amounts

- invoices with Invoice No. which match or closely match (in case we're mis-keying)

I've tried so many ways to find duplicates that fulfill the 2 conditions above, but still cannot make it done.

I have a (very) large spreadsheet which contains a column of numbers. I am trying to work out a way to identify all of the times when this column has 3600 or more consecutive zeros. Ideally, I would like it to tell me how many and the size of these periods of 3600 or more consecutive zeros, but I would settle for something as simple as just highlighting these parts.

View 9 Replies View Related- I have a list of 8 digit numbers in Column A sorted small to large

- Some of the 8 digit numbers are duplicated.

- In Column B I would like to have more of a combination of countif and listing the duplicates in order (1 for the first dup in the column, 2 for the 2nd, etc.)

Example of what I'd like to see

Column A Column B

123456781

123456782

132546841

685036541

985413561

985413562

985413563

As you can see if the number in column A is on the list one time column B would show a 1If the number is shown two times (the first time it shows up will show a 1 the second will show a 2) If the number is shown 3 times (the first time it shows up will show a 1 the second will show a 2, the third tiem would show a 3)
