    TRUE
    FALSE
    FALSE
    FALSE

    FALSE
    FALSE
    FALSE
    FALSE
    FALSE
    FALSE
    FALSE
    FALSE
    FALSE
    TRUE


    I want to count the number of falses between two consecutive true

    2
    0
    5
    1
    9

    And I want the result to be arranged in this manner. where 2 is the number of falses between the first two trues, 0 is the number of falses between the next two trues, and so on.

    Please help

    Re: Count the gaps between two consecutive data

    If you have 365, this will work:

    =LET(d,FILTER(ROW(A1:A23),A1:A23),t,TAKE(d,-(ROWS(d)-1)),f,TAKE(d,ROWS(d)-1),(t-f)-1)

    Thanks but Ma'am it's not working in my excel.
    I asked if you still hd 2019 - you did not respond. Do you?

    I also said that the solution would work if you had 365.

    In older Excel versions, please try
    Formula: copy to clipboard
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    This formula returns the gaps including the number of FALSE's before the first TRUE and the number of FALSE's after the last TRUE.

    Re: Count the gaps between two consecutive data

    Thanks mate. It worked. Here is something which is troubling me again. I am attaching spreadsheet.

    what I want to do is - Count a certain pair of numbers in column E. Pair I want to count is 5,0...such that Zero appears immediately after 5 in Column E.

    E9 5
    E10 0

    I want to count this pair in the list given in Column E. ( I have uploaded the spreadsheet)

    Thanks in Advance.
