    count non blanks and blanks frequency in chunks

    Hi,

    I am looking for help regarding the following calculations in MS Excel. I have a sample data arranged like this in a column

    variable name

    2
    3
    14
    4
    blank
    blank
    blank
    4
    1
    2
    2
    2
    blank
    blank
    1
    2
    31
    4
    blank
    1
    blank
    blank



    I am interested in summarised two variables:

    1) how can i get excel to count the number of columns in a data range that is present in a column continuously(numerical values) and print it in a separate column, for example, the output for sample data above would be
    4
    5
    4
    1

    2) similarly how can i count the number of chunks of "blanks" and print it a separate column: for example the output from the above data sample would be:

    3
    2
    1
    2



    Thanks for your help.

    one option:

    Formula: copy to clipboard

    above would return the non-blank series' counts in the order in which they occur -- the same can be used for blanks by inverting the <>"" and ="" criteria.
