Data anaylisis Formula (Excel 2003)
Was wondering if there is a bright idea to help me figure out my data,
I was wondering how to do a macro which would highlight the first new day of the data font Red.
then
I have 2 columns and 2 blank on in the middle of the two.
in one I have a unique number and in the other I have a date. I want to find a simple way of look at the unique number for each day, if the unique number is consective with the one below it for the same day then 1 group, would show up in the middle column (col. [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] on the row beside the last consective number. Attached is my example with my attempt on the first few.
then
in col, D get the number of unique Numbers for that day.
Thanks for reading

You don't need a macro for that, you can use conditional formatting:
 Select A2:C413 (or a larger area).
 Select Format  Conditional Formatting...
 Select Formula Is in the first dropdown list.
 Enter <code>=$C2>$C1</code> in the box next to it. The placement of the $ signs is important.
 Click Format...
 Specify the font and other formatting you want to apply.
 Click OK twice.

Re: Data anaylisis Formula (Excel 2003)
The attached file uses conditional formatting to set the row text color to red for the first row of each new date.
I do not see a consistent pattern for the Group labels in column B. What is in the sheet does not seem to match what you describe in your post.Legare Coleman

Re: Data anaylisis Formula (Excel 2003)
OK, now I see what you are trying to do. Here is a macro that will do what I think you want in columns B, D, and E.
<code>
Public Sub SetGroups()
Dim lLastRow As Long, I As Long, lGCnt As Long, lJcnt As Long
With Worksheets("Crew working")
lLastRow = .Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row  1
I = 1
lGCnt = 1
lJcnt = 1
Do While I <= lLastRow
If .Range("C1").Offset(I, 0).Value <> .Range("C1").Offset(I + 1, 0).Value Then
.Range("B1").Offset(I, 0).Value = "Group " & lGCnt
.Range("D1").Offset(I, 0).Value = lJcnt
.Range("E1").Offset(I, 0).Value = lGCnt
lGCnt = 1
lJcnt = 1
Else
If CLng(.Range("A1").Offset(I, 0).Value) + 1 <> CLng(.Range("A1").Offset(I + 1, 0).Value) Then
.Range("B1").Offset(I, 0).Value = "Group " & lGCnt
lGCnt = lGCnt + 1
End If
lJcnt = lJcnt + 1
End If
I = I + 1
If I < lLastRow Then
Do While .Range("A1").Offset(I, 0).Value = ""
I = I + 1
Loop
End If
Loop
End With
End Sub
