# Searching For Sequence Of Numbers Down A Column?

Jun 6, 2014

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?

## How To Automate Sequence Of Numbers

Jul 25, 2014

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?

## Identify Numbers In Sequence

Aug 23, 2007

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.

## Average Numbers In Sequence

Oct 21, 2005

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

## Highlight Numbers In Sequence

Dec 19, 2008

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?

## Filling In Numbers In Sequence

Jul 29, 2009

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....

## Count Numbers In Sequence ....

Dec 8, 2006

I 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.

A
23
24
25
33
34
60
77
80

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.

## Tell Larger Sequence Of Repeated Numbers In Row?

Nov 25, 2012

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.

A
B
C
D
E
F
G
H
I
J
K
L

Result

1
1
1
0
0
1
0
1
0
1
1
0
3

[code].....

See for example the last line.

1 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 0 = 5

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

## RANK Duplicate Numbers Without Missing In Sequence?

Jul 18, 2014

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!

## Confirming If Multiple Rows Of Numbers Run In Sequence

Jun 24, 2009

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.

## Find Lookup Sequence Of Numbers In Rows

Jun 27, 2012

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.

## Macro Instruction To Copy Down Sequence Of Numbers

Dec 24, 2013

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:

After:

G1010
G1011
G1012
G1013
G1014
G1015

## Place In Sequence Increasing The Numbers Of One I Creak In A Cell

Dec 13, 2008

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.

## Lottery Search Query: Correct Sequence Of Numbers

Oct 10, 2006

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.

## Placing Numbers In Sequence Down Rows And Duplicating If Information Matches?

Mar 7, 2013

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.

## Summing Sequence Of Numbers Seperated By Comma Within Single Cell

Mar 24, 2009

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)

## Macro For Putting Index Reference Numbers In Numerical Sequence?

Nov 12, 2012

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.

## Searching A Range For Numbers

Jun 28, 2006

It has been a while since working with code and I can't seem to find something similar to this on the site, but I know that this will be a quick fix for someone out there. I am trying to search a range for certain numbers. If they are there I would like for it to pop up a message box. I have narrowed it down to it being the range to which it is giving me an error 13 type mismatch.

If Range("B3:B100") = "8800" Or "9900" Then
MsgBox "You have incorrect...."
Else: MsgBox "Correct"
End If

## Extracting Numbers From One Cell To The Next By Searching For A Certain Character?

Dec 4, 2012

Here is an example

Column A: Column B:
Row 1: Walmart 7886 1540.12 1540.12
Row 2: Walgreens 7886 37.95 ?
Row 3: Exxon Moble 7886 86.37 ?

I need to extract the number (regardless of the amount of characters) signified by the "." Another words, I need a formula that will give the the answers of the following in column "B"

1540.12
37.95
86.37

These are the amounts spent. It would be easier if there was a "\$" but theres not... so I need to find the "." and give me the numbers associated with it.

## Look At Column A Number In Descending Sequence In Column B

Mar 20, 2008

there may even be an excel formula answer to it rather than a macro. Coloumn A has a series of numbers, I want column B to show those numbers in what would be there Descending Sequence.

Thus
Col A
100
97
14
87
32
108
21

So with this routine you would then see

COL ACOL B10029731478743251081216 The above I suspect is not too difficult, however if two (or more) numbers are the same I want the sequence to reflect that thus COL A COL B100297 314 797 332 5108 121 6 and no... the data - Col A - cannot be sorted, it must stay in that sequence.

If possible I would want this done automatically when any Col A value changes (any unused cells would be 0 by the way). Oh, there will in fact be 25 cells in column A for this.

## Filling Column With Number Sequence Whenever Value Changes

Apr 28, 2014

I am trying to fill a column with a number series starting with 1 whenever a value changes in the adjacent column. So for instance I am trying to do something like this :

87 1
87 2
87 3
88 1
88 2
88 3
88 4
89 1
89 2
90 1

92 1
92 2
92 3

## Create Ascending Sequence In Every Column

Apr 22, 2012

Creating a sequence in every column? It should look like this:

Original matrix (Top left cell is "A1"):
40 50 60
30 10 20
70 20 0

And I want to replace it with:
2 3 3
1 1 2
3 2 1

I need to create an ascending sequence of numbers in every column. First column contains: 40, 30, 70. That's why its ascending sequence is: 2, 1, 3.

Btw, I got N rows and M columns.

## Copy Sequence From Rows To Column?

Aug 11, 2012

I have a set of data in cells sequencially in every 3rd column. I would like to create a new rows where the data I have in columns are placed into rows in accordance with its catogory.

So all EUR are in one row sequencially over the colums and the same for USD & GBP. This way I can create a graph.

## Sequence Based On Column A Index

Sep 18, 2006

I am stuck on what should be a simple formula. I have a spreadsheet that is sorted by "target" number in column A, basically 1,2,3,4. I am trying to create a formula that will increase the number in column B by one based on column A. So when the value in column A changes column B will reset to 1. Also I need this sequence number to be preceded by zeros up to 0999. So 1 would be 0001 and 895 would be 0895.

## Grouping Same Values By A Number Sequence For A Column

Mar 13, 2013

I am trying to group the same values in columns together and i was thinking about having a number count. What's the function that might be able to display this (display whats in Column B in the example below)?

Values
5000 1
5000 1
6000 2
7000 3
7000 3
8000 4
8000 4
8000 4
9000 8
10000 9
10000 9

## Determine If Column Of Values Contains Sequence Of Consecutive Matches

Oct 12, 2012

I am looking for a better way to determine if a column of values contains a sequence of consecutive matches. For example, column A contains single words. To determine if three consecutive cells contain the word "neuron", I enter in cell B3 the formula:

=IF(AND(A3="neuron",A3=A2,A3=A1),1,"")

And copy down. I then test column B to see if there are any non-blank cells.

If we want to change the word or the number of consecutive occurrences, I have to re-edit all the formulas in column B. I want to eliminate the helper column. I would like to put the word in B1, the number of consecutive occurrences in B2 and have a formula in B3 that will return either True or False.

I can do this with a UDF, but the user has rejected this option.
