1. ## counting

Hello.
I have a little snipe code able to tell me how many times number 1 is in the column A, I am trying to count how many time 2 is after one, but still I don't know how to say that in VBA. This is the little code:
Code:
```     Sub countmontecarlo()Dim cell As Range
Dim n As Long
For Each cell In Range("A:A")
If cell = 1 Then

n = n + 1
End If
Next cell
Range("b6").Value = n
End Sub```
the code count 6 one's but how to count 5 times 2 under the coordinate 1-2, thank you.
 1 1 2 3 2 1 3 2 5 1 3 2 3 6 1 2 3 1 2 1 2 1 3  Reply With Quote

Code:
```Sub countmontecarlo()
Dim cell As Range
Dim lastrow As Long
Dim n As Long
Dim i As Long
With ActiveSheet

lastrow = .Cells(.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row

For i = 1 To lastrow

If .Cells(i, "A").Value = 1 And .Cells(i + 1, "A").Value = 2 Then

n = n + 1
End If
Next i
.Range("B6").Value = n
End With
End Sub```  Reply With Quote

Since the Evaluate function processes non-text functions as arrays (when an array of values are involved) natively, you can use the SUM function instead of the SUMPRODUCT function for the expression you are giving it. Also, you do not need to include the equal sign for the Evaluate function.
Code:
`Range("B6").Value = Evaluate("SUM((" & r.Address & "=1)*(" & r.Offset(1).Address & "=2))")`  Reply With Quote
