# Thread: Calculate Winning Streak in excel

1. ## Calculate Winning Streak in excel

Hello,

I am working in Excel 2010. I am trying to write a formula to calculate a team's current winning/losing streak. I have wins and losses each in their own column, represented by a 1 or a 0. I would like to represent the current streak in a single column where (+) values represent a winning streak and (-) values represent a losing streak.

I have tried multiple combinations of formulas, with varying success. My current formula is: =IF(AS4="1",AP4+1,AP4-1). This works for a continuing winning or losing streak, but the issue arises when a team breaks a streak. For example if they win then lose, or vice versa.

One additional note: I am using random numbers to simulate the results of the first 2 weeks. This is the reason for the #N/A results. I am not worried about these, I am only concerned about the streak formula at this moment

Not exactly. I would like losing streaks to be represented as well. So instead of a 0 for a losing streak I am trying to have it display -1, -2 etc.

it works going down the column, but the way i have my data set up each team has its own row, I would like the streak for each team, going across the row, for each week. The formula works for each week, but not for an individual team. If that makes any sense.

I figured it out, thank you for the base formula!
