Simple counter down column

Posted on 2014-04-12

Hi All,

I am looking for a simple counter that counts every time a cell changes in Column B.

Examples:

If B10 changes then I would like to have a "1" in G10.  If B10 changes again then a "2" is in G10 and so on.

Similarity, if B23 changes then I would like to have a "1" in G23.  If B23 then changes again 3 more times then G23 should equal 4.

...and so on for each relevant row down the column.

If the corresponding cell in "I" becomes a "1" then the counter should reset to zero and if there is "" in the same cell then the counter is "ready" to start counting again.

I have included a sample sheet to get going on this.

thanks.

Not sure what yo meant by "If the corresponding cell in "I" becomes a "1" then the counter should reset to zero and if there is "" in the same cell then the counter is "ready" to start counting again. " so currently my code doesn't accommodate that.

``````Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Range("B:B")) Is Nothing Then
Range("G" & Target.Row) = Range("G" & Target.Row).Value + 1
End If
End Sub
``````

Put the code in the worksheet module.

HI,

You could do it with this formula ( the first cell should have a zero no formula)

``````=IF(J11=1,0,IF(B11<>B10,H10+1,H10))
``````

if you only want to see the change number once use conditional formatting like in the example

Thanks for that.  To answer your question column "I" + relative row should be used to reset the count back to zero.  If it can be reset by another way then please let me know.  This is all going into an automated program so I need some way to do that.

Thanks for that.  Not sure if this does the job. The counter increases as we go from low rows to higher rows.  The counts for each row is independent of the other.

thanks!

Ok. Thanks for the clarification.

``````Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Range("B:B")) Is Nothing Then
Select Case Range("I" & Target.Row).Value
Case Is = ""
Range("G" & Target.Row) = Range("G" & Target.Row).Value + 1
Case Is = "1"
Range("G" & Target.Row) = ""
End Select
End If
End Sub
``````
