I am trying to count amount of consecutive occurrences of number 0 in a row.
A B C D E F 5 0% 0% 0% 0% 0% 2 0% 0% 1% 0% 0%
Formula in A1 and B1 counts how many consecutive 0 are in a row and stops if something else but 0 is encountered.
Currently I have this formula:
=if(B2+C2+D2+E2+F2=0,5, if(B2+C2+D2+E2=0,4, if(B2+C2+D2=0,3, if(B2+C2=0,2, if(B2=0,1,0)))))
It works but I need to check 100+ cells in one row and I was wondering if there is a more elegant solution?
EDIT: As suggested below
=match(true,ArrayFormula(IF(TRANSPOSE(B2:F2)<>0,true,false)),0) works perfectly. I've just added "-1" to get the sum of zeroes:
Unfortunately I forgot that my data has "N/A" text in some cells. Is there a way to make that formula to ignore "N/A"?
It counts to 6 and stops, I want it to ignore "N/A" and get 8 as a result
