Hi,

struggling with this small problem with a spreadsheet and wondered if anyone can nudge me in the right direction.

I have spreadsheet with column a having instances of ¨1¨ indicating an event or count should occur. I wish in a further column  to keep a count of the 1´s but when the count reaches 12, I´d like to reset the count to 0 again. I´ve managed to get so far as using an OR inside an IF function which tests the value of the count and will set the value to 0 but I´d like to restart the count again. 

Do I need to look towards a COUNTIF function, else where of can I use some logic inside of an IF formula to just go up to 12 and reset.

Thanks

Knoydart.

Just use the modulo function to return the remainder after dividing by 12. So if your 1's are in column A then:
=mod(sum(A:A),12)

And this to make the 12 display as 12 and not 0

=IF(MOD(Sum(A:A,12)=0,12,MOD(Sum(A:A,12))
