    Not sure I follow your last question, sorry... if you're saying you want to return something other than 0 if there is no run of four consecutive 2s then yes, you could amend to:

    Formula: copy to clipboard

    do not apologise - your English is far better than my Greek (and/or Turkish!)

    the first formula should return 0 if no 2-2-2-2 sequence is found, the second formula would allow you to return whatever you wanted (if you did not want 0)

    if still not clear please post a sample to explain, and which includes the formulas suggested (to show why they do not work).

    Re: If 2 2 2 2 formula

    based on your last post (#8) (and I haven't tested XLent's formula nor opened your workbook) but if you want it to return 0 instead of "something else" I would say to adjust it this way....
    =IF(MAX(FREQUENCY(IF(A1:A47=2,ROW(A1:A47)),IF(A1:A47<>2,ROW(A1:A47))))>=4,13,0)

    confirmed with CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER

    @SamboKid,

    Per post 7, an IF only required if a non-0 alternative is desired - i.e. post 3 can only return one of 13 or 0 - so above entirely redundant.

    As I noted, I wasn't testing anything, I was just guessing. Wasn't sure the OP had their answer so I thought I'd post a guess still giving you credit.
    If they got their answer, great.

    welcome to the forum

    For future reference, please take a moment to read the forum rules and use thread titles that are descriptive of your problem - not what you think the answer might be. (think google search terms?).

    Many members search our previous posts, and thread titles play a big part of the search. I doubt anybody would do a search based on your title?
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Regards
    Ford
