    Exclude zero when counting streaks (win/loss) and current streaks

    Hi,

    I had been trying to figure out calculating streaks (win/loss) for my football's team statistics and is facing the following 2 issues.

    My example:

    Column: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R
    Row 1: w w w L 0 L 0 L 0 w w w 0 0 w L 0 L

    0 denotes non-appearance and thus should not be considered in the calculation.

    1) To find the current streak. Desired Result - 2L
    I had been using the below formula to find the current streak but the formula takes zero into consideration and gives me the result as 1L. How can i make the forumla to ignore the zeros in the array?

    =LOOKUP(1E+100,FREQUENCY(IF(A1:R1=LOOKUP("zzz",A1:R1),COLUMN(A1:R1)),IF(A1:R1<>LOOKUP("zzz",A1:R1),COLUMN(A1:R1))))&""&LOOKUP("zzz",A1:R1)

    2) To find the longest winning or losing streak. Desired result: 4w and 3L
    Similarly, I had been using the below formula to find the longest winning and losing streak but the formula takes zero into consideration and give me the result as 3w and 1L.
    How can i make the forumla to ignore the zeros in the array?

    Longest Winning Streak:
    =MAX(FREQUENCY(IF(A1:R1="W",COLUMN(A1:R1)),IF(A1:R1<>"W",COLUMN(A1:R1))))

    Longest Losing Streak:
    =MAX(FREQUENCY(IF(A1:R1="l",COLUMN(A1:R1)),IF(A1:R1<>"l",COLUMN(A1:R1))))

    Thank you so much!

    Best Regards,
    Poko.

    Re: Exclude zero when counting streaks (win/loss) and current streaks

    Q2 is a relatively easy fix, instead of <>"W" in the second IF you need ="L", i.e.

    =MAX(FREQUENCY(IF(A1:R1="W",COLUMN(A1:R1)),IF(A1:R1="L",COLUMN(A1:R1))))

    Same formula for losing streak except swap "W" and "L"

    A little trickier for Q1 but this should fix it along the same lines....

    =LOOKUP(1E+100,FREQUENCY(IF(A1:R1=LOOKUP("zzz",A1:R1),COLUMN(A1:R1)),IF(A1:R1=IF(LOOKUP("zzz",A1:R1)="W","L","W"),COLUMN(A1:R1))))&""&LOOKUP("zzz",A1:R1)

    ...or this version would be shorter assuming Excel 2007 or later

    =COUNTIF(INDEX(A1:R1,IFERROR(MATCH(2,1/(A1:R1=IF(LOOKUP("zzz",A1:R1)="L","W","L"))),1)):R1,LOOKUP("zzz",A1:R1))&LOOKUP("zzz",A1:R1)

    I was wondering how to get the current streak formula to work if the data is entered vertically instead of horizontally. I appreciate the help!

    current streak.xlsx
