    Maximum (highest) frequency of cells between two values in row

    Hello,

    This is my first post and English is not my native, so I hope I can explain my issue.
    I have a spreadsheet that I want to calculate the maximum number of cells between two values. I did find a solution but it is not the smartest and requires a lot of formula typing.

    Here's the issue (see example spreadsheet attached as well)

    excel.PNG

    I want to count what is the highest interval between two FG values - In the figure you can see it is 7 cells, between first and second "FG". I used max(frequency(if...) and it works, the problem is that I was counting blanks ("") in the beginning, but now any other value can be inserted between "FGs" in the same row, but I still want to count the maximum interval between FG, ignoring any other value in between.
    In the spreadsheet attached you can see that I am using the same approach to account for different values, but I don't think it is clever to type multiple "IFs" to account for infinite values that can go between two "FG".

    Any help is appreciated. If you do not understand the question, I may try to rephrase it for better understanding.

    Thank you

    Using your posted workbook....
