Finding Difference Between Non-consecutive Numbers?

Jul 11, 2013

I have got the following issue. I have got a large list of values in a column. I need to detect the the ones which are in non-consecutive order and display the difference in single numbers. For example:

1 fine
2 fine
3 fine
7 - 4,5,6
10 - 8,9

In other words I need to find the missing values and get them displayed.

I am trying to write a spreadsheet to accomplish the following function. One column (column a) will be data in which there will be consecutive entires of the same value. There will be a seperate column (column b) of data which is related to the first. I want to create a third column which calculates the difference in the values in column b, which correspond with the first row, and last row of a consecutive block of column A values.

I was thinking the simplest method would be to calculate a given row's difference between the first row of the block. The only problem Im having is determining where a block begins, since the will be multiple occurances of blocks of data.

I've attached an example of the data I am trying to solve this problem for. Basically I am looking for strings of 26 blanks or more in a row, but I want to determine the ending location of the last string of 26+ blanks. I've been able to determine the location of the maximum string of blanks, but that max group of blanks isn't always the last set over 26.

Any link to find the location of last string of blanks of 26 or more? The example I attached is a good example since there are two strings of 26+ blanks with the last one being shorter. I've also include the answer I'm looking at the end of the data in the example.

Say I have Column A populated with Employee Names, and Column B populated with "Pass" or "Fail" (which indicates a passed or failed customer service call monitoring).

For each employee, I want to be able to look at all of their overall scores (usually between 3 and 10 evaluations per month) and easily highlight people who have failed 2 out of 3 consecutive evaluations.

I want to integrate this feature in to a weekly quality report.

I’m trying to figure out how to show the highest occurrence of text in 10 cells which are not next to each other. Some of the cells will also be blank And the other thing is if there is a draw e.g. 5 2Z and 5 1Z I'd like it to show that, either with a word e.g. "DRAW" or anything really other than just putting whichever of the 2 "notes" in it feels like

Attached is a spreadsheet (all other data deleted) that shows what I am wanting to do – I have typed the results I am after directly in to the cells in columns BE & BF – BE will need some kind of countif, but when I try that is says I have too many arguments! I have to leave the columns in between blank in this case as they have other info in them, which is really annoying as if those 10 cells were contiguous then the formula

I have a column that finds the difference between two times and I have it formatted as h:mm so that I get results such as 0:55 for 55 minutes. The problem is that when I try to get an average, median, and sum for all the times in that column it doesn't work. It comes up way short. I'm assuming it has somthing to do with the formatting.

I'm looking for a formula in relation to the calculation of time.What I'm looking for is a way of finding the difference between the time two cells and it displaying it in the number of hours e.g.:

Cell 1__Cell 2__Cell 3

12:00 + 18:30 = 6.5 (it is 6 hours 30 mins but I want it displayed as a number.

I have approximately 40 seperate sheets in one workbook. Each sheet is a unique part #. Each part has 6 different types of transactions possible. Let's say A-F. A-F each have a date associated when them of when the transaction occured. The transactions are sorted by date. I would like to write a formula that when Transaction A occurs what is the diffence in days until D transaction occurs. Or the time differnce between when B occured and the next F occured.

below is my datedif formula, but it obviously only works in a sequential order from top to bottom.

=IF(DATEDIF(M5,M6,"y")=0,"",DATEDIF(M52,M6,"y")&" years ")&IF(DATEDIF(M5,M6,"ym")=0,"",DATEDIF(M5,M6,"ym")&" months ")&DATEDIF(M5,M6,"md")&" days"

I am having difficulty finding the difference between two times and dates in Excel. I have researched this on Google and tried several formulas but none have worked for me. The format the data is currently in can be seen below:

I want to display the difference in C1 in a format along the lines of "dd hh:mm". The data for seconds and fractions of a second is included in the source data but is not needed in the final results.

If the date and time falls on the same day, I have no trouble doing a simple "B3-A3" to determine the answer. For example:

I need to find the minimum difference between any two elements in a row or a column. While it's easy to do for a 3-4 elements by doing subtractions for all elements in the array, doing it for more elements leads to a very long formula.

For example, I need to find the difference between any two elements between C5 and C9: ....

I am having trouble finding the difference between times. I have two cells, A1, A2. Times will be placed in there each day. A1 will have the first time and A2 will have a later time that day. i.e. A1 12:25AM, A2 2:45AM. A3 would have the formula. In this case I am looking for an answer of 2:00 (2hrs).

My second issue will be times when I have A1 11:20pm and A2 1:20am. I can't seem to get it to work.

My problem is the increase in calls from 03/01 to 05/01 YTD ISN'T 25, it's 6.

Is there a formulae I can use that works out the difference between the latest number of calls taken and the last number of calls taken (excluding the 'blank' cells)?

I have this data...I need a macro which can find difference of timing between peaks of "act1" and "act2" and can adjust the act2 column such that their peaks are on same line.. For exampe here in data peaks of "act1" is at 13seconds and of "act2" is at 12seconds..so the difference is +1...I will insert 1 one cell in "Act2" from above which will shift down the column such that 60 in act1 and 30 in act2 will be in line...or for another example if 30 is below 60 ....>..if difference is -1 seconds or in minus it can delete the same number of cells from above in act2 coloumn(deletion of cells from the beginning which are under the title act2)..

I have 3 columns, in column 1 and 2 there will be numbers and I want automatically to get in column 3 the range of numbers between Column 1 and Column 2 Column 1 - 100 Column 2 - 500 Column 3 - 100, 101, 102, ..., 500

I have a daily column of numbers of approx 600 rows and the number is either a 0 or 1 and the 0 or 1 are in a random order in each row like:

1 1 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 1

I would like to find the min number of rows with 1, the max number of rows with 1, the totals of consecutive rows with 1 ie 3 consecutive rows of 1 appear 4 times, 4 consecutive rows appear 6 times etc and the average of the consecutive rows with 1.

with this Excel problem? I have a set of data of 300 some odd rows of numbers. I need to find 24 CONSECUTIVE values that add up to the HIGHEST sum? For instance,

I am preparing a attendance sheet. I am using 1 & 0 for present(=1) & absent(=0). I want to find out if a student has been absent for three consecutive days and if there is three consecutive 0 then the formula should return the value 0 ( the student gets 0 if he is absent for 3 consecutive days ) otherwise it should add all the 1s in the row. i.e

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

I have a spreadsheet that has a column of numbers some of which are consecutive, some of which are not. I would like to have a way to lump all of these chunks of consecutive blocks into ranges. For example:

I have an interval, for example [1431, 1589] an I need to automatically generate consecutive numbers in this interval - for example 1431.1 , 1431.2 ..... 1588.8, 1588.9, 1589. How can I do that? I know I can do this manually by writing some values and drag down but I need this done automatically.

to create with the default excel functions the following calculator. I need to calculate the maximum number of positive numbers which happen in a row and the maximum number of consecutive negative numbers. For example in the following list of numbers there are a maximum of 7 consecutive positive and a maximum of 6 consecutive negative numbers:

I need to take every 4th data point from an array of several hundred (col A) and place the reduced array in a new column (col B). I initially tried approaching this in VBA and then tried excel, but to keep it simple i won't show the code that didn't work.

Col A Col B 5.001 5.001 5.002 5.802 5.001 5.951 5.003 5.802 5.805 5.801 5.804 6.951 6.950 6.952 6.951
