    Finding patterns in column

    I have a column with 1,2 & 3ís and I am trying to find a pattern that will act as a sell trigger. I need four separate formulas for four different triggers to analyze.

    #1- any pattern with 2 of the same and any 3rd, i.e. YXX, XYX, XXY

    #2 same as #1 but looking back where Y has not been in the previous 3 rows prior to the trigger.

    #3 Specific pattern any number 1st and the same number in 2nd and third position i.e. YXX

    #4 same as #4 but looking back where Y has not been in the previous 3 rows prior to the trigger.

    Any help with this would be great

    Please upload a workbook or a representative cut down copy, anonymised if necessary. It is always easier to advise if we can see your request in its context.

    Show a before and after situation with manually calculated results, explaining which information is data and which is results, and if it's not blindingly obvious how you have arrived at your results some explanatory notes as well.

    To upload a file click the Go Advanced button at the foot of your post, look underneath the post area for the Manage Attachments section and take it from there.
