    Counting Consecutive Values

    I have data in rows which contain IF statements that result in a 1 for true or 0 for false. I need to count the number of consecutive 1 values until a 0 is hit. For example:

    A B C D E F G
    1 1 1 0 1 0 3
    1 1 0 0 0 0 2
    1 0 1 1 1 1 1
    0 1 0 0 1 1 0

    My result is in column G.

    Any suggestions?
    Thank you!!

    Does this do it?

    =MATCH(0,A1:F1,0)-1

    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    Re: Counting Consecutive Values

    Yes that worked, except when all values in the string are 1 it is returning #N/A. Is there a way to fix that?

    Re: Counting Consecutive Values

    So you want 6 returned instead?

    If yes, try:

    =IFERROR(MATCH(0,A1:F1,0)-1,COUNT(A1:F1))
