I want to count how many times a digit fell......
Cells B2,B3,B4 are the individual digits cells
thru Row 8
preferable sorted with the most hit digits first..........
Hypersoniq or WSLS help!!!!!!!
The idea is to take 7 days of draws, which would be 42 digits and find out which ones hit the most in a sorted list.
I have my table set up like this. Will get you by until someone else gives you something better.
Draws set up in cells D:F
Then grey cells starting at 0
From there you have to count the old fashioned way or use auto filter, etc.
thank you big time, LL.......have a great day. Not really what I want but will play with it.....not interested in sums....just the count...I think it is a COUNTIF command or a COUNT command.
In the gray area, why can't I just sort with the decending order AZ thingie on the tool bar?
was it a =countif() formula?
I have yet to try, but I think the =rank() formula could help with the order...
yes hyper is was:
what do you suggest?
How would I do it with the =rank?
the countif formula counts well but it doesn't sort largest hits at the top on down......
Here is the Countif results:
It counts but I wanted sorted so that the 0-3-2 is on top with 4 hits each and so on. If I remember, I think the "rank" would do it but don't know how to do it.
Really what I am trying to do is set up a "Power Trails" spreadsheet.....fiddling with the amount of draws inputted right now.
rank would only give a number value to the hits count
there are some special uses of rank, however... instructions here...
could be a tricky formula is needed, I'm still brushing up on formulas (creating your own) so I'll have to get back to you on this one... manually, you could select the 2 columns, click on SORT and pick the 2nd of the 2 columns in descending order, this would put the high counts at the top with their corresponding digits (but only if both ranges are selected)... that's how I do quick imports from state lottery games, copy their descended order list and re-sort it by date ascending (so I have newest draws at the bottom)
