# 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?

I m use Excel 2003 to automate the following sequence of events that I currently do manually?

AutoFilter to filter the City in column B

AutoFilter to filter the Rotation in column X

AutoFilter to filter the Positional Status in column Y

Hide columns B:W

Use the computer mouse to select a range of that includes columns A, and X to AR (inclusive).

Copy 'n' paste this selected range to worksheet: Data to Text at cell A1

Insert a new column by selecting column A and right-clicking on the column and selecting Insert

Populating the new column A starting at cell A1 with number 1 and autofilling down to the last record (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc...)

Delete the folowing columns: C, D, E, G, J, L, M, N, P, Q R, S, T and V

Copy 'n' paste the all the remaining data to a new documnet in MS Word 2003

Select the entire table in MS Word

From the MS Word file menu - Select Table - Convert Table to Text

In the Convert to Table to Text pop-up window - select Other radio button and type in a forward-slash "/" in the input box adjacent to the radio button (without the quotes).......................................

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....

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.

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?

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

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.

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 am trying to figure out the calculation steps that Goal Seek is doing behind the scenes so I can create the formula rather than clicking on goal seek whenever I need to make a change. I need to maintain certain weeks of supply every week depending on the sales. Let's say i want to maintain 5 weeks of supply every week, I would like to insert a column for "Suggested To Order' column that would change if weeks of supply goes below 5. In this scenario I would do a Goal Seek, but I want to automate the calculation so I don't have to do this step every week.

I have alot more abbreviations, but I hope I just need some advice and can figure it out from there....................

I have a workbook that I use for my purchase orders which is pretty simple. Each row is a separate PO, with 10 columns (po#, description, cost, date, etc.).

Is there a way to automatically generate new workbooks that contain all of the info from each individual row? For example: if I have 100 rows on my spreadsheet, which means I've issued 100 POs, then I want to have 100 individual xls workbooks, with the filename for each workbook representing the PO #s (206904.xls, 206905.xls, etc.).

Dont know if this is possible. I have a spreadsheet where cell A1 contains a value which is not fixed and can change daily, the value can increase and decrease. At present at each month-end I manually record the position of cell A1 at month end in cells C1 through C12 repsenting the 12 months of the year.

Example:

A1 @ 31/01/07 = 50 therefore cell C1 = 50

A1 @ 28/02/07 = 45 therefore cell C2 = 45

and so on for 12 months

what I would like to do is automate this process to automatically capture the value at month end into cells "c" and once captured, the figure to remain absolute for that cell/month and to ignore changes in Cell A1 that may subsequently occur.

Could this be done by date formula?
