This is tough to even state, but I'll try with an example

Example: find the first value that changed 50% in relation to the last time when there was a change of 50%, beggining when the value is not zero.

A B C D E F G H

0 0 10 12 15 17 20 19

The first time the value changed 50% is in E, but then it changed again in G, so I need a formula that returns 20; if there was no 20, the correct answer would be 15

How 20 is 50% change from 15

10 * 1.5 = 15
15 * 1.5 = 22.5

yes, that would be 22.5, small mistake when setting the example

Assumption

1. Data is on row 1
2. There is no blank cell between data
3. It will return zero also, if that is the case as 1.5 of 0 is 0

Call the function as =lastFifty()

```Public Function lastFifty() As Variant

Dim objNum As Object 'hold number and its 1.5 times value
Dim vNum As Variant 'current number
Dim lastValue As Variant 'last 50 found
Dim col As Integer ' start column

Set objNum = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")

col = 1
lastValue = ""

vNum = Trim(Cells(1, col))

Do While (vNum <> "")

If Not (objNum.exists(CStr(vNum * 1.5))) Then

End If

If (objNum.exists(CStr(vNum))) Then
lastValue = vNum
End If

col = col + 1
vNum = Trim(Cells(1, col))

Loop

lastFifty = lastValue

End Function

```
