# Count of last consecutive repetitive values in a column

#### JONVEN

Hello Excel Masters,

I have a problem which I am stuck with.. I have checked the forum and could not find the answer, even though I am quite close with to get the answer with this formula (Count number of times a value appears in role??) I am still looking for suggestion.

So, let's say a have a column with values:
Y
N
Y
Y
Y
N
N
N

I need a formula which would count number of last (not MAX) Ns in a row,- in this case this would be 3

In case of:
Y
Y
Y
N
N
Y

The formula should return 0, because last value is not N

Also would be great if formula could still count a number of last Ns in a row if there's 0s or blanks after Ns. In case of:
Y
N
N
Y
N
N
N
0/Blank
0/Blank

The formula should return 3, because before 0s/Blanks there was 3 consecutive Ns.

Hope the question is clear and someone could help me.

Ok, will try to explain here, copied a mini sheet below.
So, I want to analyze football matches data and get the number of consecutive matches a team did not have more than 1 goal in the first half and more than 3 goals in full match time.
In the cells B7:B36 and C7:C36 I manually enter the number of goals scored after each match, after the result is entered the cells B42:B71 and C42:C71 automatically updates whether there was 2 or more goals in first half and whether there was 4 or more goals in the full match. (Y-there was >=2/>=4 goals, N-there was <2/<4 goals, 0-the goal number is not entered yet)
Cells H2 and J2 automatically updated and shows the longest consecutive streak of matches where there were < 2 goals in first half and <4 goals in full match (in this case 6 and 4 respectively).
I need G2 and J2 cells to be updated as well and show the current streak of matches where there were < 2 goals in first half and <4 goals in full match, so in this case G2 should return 2, and J2 should return 1. Hope this is clear what I want to achieve

### Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

Thanks for that, how about
Excel Formula:
``=COUNTIF(B42:B71,"<>0")-LOOKUP(2,1/((B42:B71<>"N")*(B42:B71<>0)),ROW(B42:B71)-ROW(B42)+1)``
