Hi Gunnar,

Take a look at your file:
https://authentification.site/files/26731266/Gunnar2.xls

The alfabet letters in B6:B27 have a conditional format. When 7 1's are next to each other the letter turns blue.

Note: the formulas used in row 45:66 can be hidden or turn the text color to white, to keep your sheet look clean.

Is this better?

Best regards,
Trowa

I think you need vba to do that. Is this waring to show up as you type in number or does it need to show up in some other way ?

hi

when there is 7 in a row, it should just display somthing at the end colum
like when you input 1, 7 times in a row it lets you know

thanks

Hi Gunnarb,

You could use an extra column next to B (or wherever).
Use a simple SUM formula to count seven cells.
At the end of the column use the following formula:
=SUM(IF(C8:C23=7,1,0))
This is an array formula, confirm by hitting Ctrl+Shift+Enter.

When this formula shows a 1 you know 7 times a 1 are below each other.
If a 0 shows up this is not the case.

Does this work for you?

Best regards,
Trowa
