#REF! Error Referencing Worksheet After Importing Sheet
Feb 9, 2008
I have a template i'm making that is full of formula references to sheets not yet in existance in the workbook. what i want to happen is this: My code imports data files, renames the tabs to 1, 2, 3, 4... The formulas i already have are set in the CONCATENATED tab.... an example of such a formula is: ='1'!$P2.
so this should work, and yet it doesn't. the sheet is imported as it should be, the tab is renamed to 1, and yet the CONCATENATED sheet still shows #REF for the cell value. if i click in the cell, click in the text bar and enter out, the formula updates. there apparently is no option that i KNOW OF (although i'm sure there is something out there that does...) that will update this without me entering into the text bar and entering out.
Question: how do i manually update all references once the sheets to those references have been imported?
I imported some data from an MDB file while working at home. created a macro to that effect. and it works fine at my home PC. but when i try t execute this macro on another PC or work place, then it gives error #13. i dont understand why. something is wrong with the code. i think it is the "WITH" code for query tables connection giving error ....
coding a VBA macro for one of my workbooks, in which I need to be able to hide/unhide various rows in one worksheet depending on the value of a cell in a worksheet elsewhere in the workbook. The rows start off hidden by default.
As a simplified example:
Worksheet1 has a cell that has option "Set 1," and "Set 2." Worksheet2 has two sets of rows (say, 20:30 and 40:50) that need to be hidden/unhidden depending on the cell in Worksheet 1. These are hidden to start with!
So if Worksheet1's target cell says "Set 1", then on Worksheet2, rows 20:30 would stay hidden and rows 40:50 would be revealed, and then if the target cell says "Set 2," then on Worksheet 2, rows 40:50 would then be hidden, but rows 20:30 would then be revealed.
I was thinking of using something like this:
Rows("20:30,40:50").EntireRow.Hidden = True If Target.Address="'Worksheet1'!A1" Then If Target.Value = "Set 1" Then Rows("40:50").EntireRow.Hidden = False Else Rows("20:30").EntireRow.Hidden = False End If End If
I think this might work, but every time I try to run this I get various errors, like not referencing my target cell correctly.
I have this code that works fine until I password the sheet and the range (b9:d65536) is protected. When I protect the sheet and make a change I get a debug error. What would I need to add/change to handle protected cells on a protected sheet?
VB: AutoLinked keywords will cause extra spaces before keywords. Extra spacing is NOT transferred when copy/pasting, but IS if the keyword uses "quotes" ....
My problem is I have a field when imported occasionally has a #Value! error in it. Most of the records are fine. As I will be importing it into another DB I need to have the #Value! removed and replaced with a Zero. Here is what I tried. I have a field that is displaying a #value! error. In another field that is referencing that field I wanted to do the following if statement. Basically if that error value is displayed show a zero, else show the value of the square. (Note I also tried it with an IIF but got a # Name? error)
If((Q2) = "#Value!",0,(Q2))
Or should I be looking for an error? When I ran it, It basically gave me the value of the Q2 field.
If((Q2) = Error(#Value!),0,(Q2))
Or is there some other way to get around the error?
Essentially GREEN pulls Values from BLUE and BLUE pulls Values from RED. Red being the base worksheet from which everything is calculated.
In my GREEN workbook I have the following =MIN('BLUE'!H14,'BLUE'!L14)
And this will work fine.....Until I press a clear Worksheet button that has been implemented on the RED worksheet (button was not implemented by me and I do not wish to edit anything with respect to that button)
When RED is reset the #REF! Error will appear in GREEN. This is fine because it cant find any values From BLUE. However when I do input new values into RED, which in turn updates BLUE which is where GREEN in theory should then be able to pull the results from.... But it just stays with a REF! error.
Is there anyway i can permanently set a CELL to have the following code =MIN('BLUE'!H14,'BLUE'!L14), no matter what happens to other cells?
I'm working on a spreadsheet for a gaming community. This sheet is used by more than 3000+ players and growing. It has to be updated roughly twice a week for new inventory items, which can range from 1 to 3 new items weekly.
To make it easier on new and existing members, I want to create a way to make updates with the spreadsheet easier and to allow players an easier way of updating the spreadsheet rather than re-entering all the data over and over again twice a week.
So, I started to use VLOOK in some formulas to look at the data and pull the corresponding information. However, this same information is used throughout the sheet and referencing this information has brought about #VALUE errors that I cannot seem to figure out how to get around.
I've included a copy of the spreadsheet to download and review in hopes of finding a solution.
Here's what this speadsheet is doing: MyInventory is where the players will enter all their items, with some being drop-down selections and manual entry. The LookupedInventory worksheet is where the VLOOKUP (columns C,G,J,Q,etc.) formula is used to look up entries in the MyInventory worksheet and pull their values over to the LookupedInventory worksheet. Now these values from the LookupedInventory will be carried over into two other worksheets, InventoryTableAttack and InventoryTableDefense. These two worksheets are where my #VALUE errors are appearing. If the cell referenced is empty, the #VALUE error appears. However, if the cell references a number, the rest of the formulas tied to to this cell reference work. However, since there are errors, the rest of the worksheet cannot function until I fix all the #VALUE errors. So, what I'm seeking is to see where my issue is and what I need to do to fix it.
If I need to take a different approach to this, please let me know what that is and how to go about doing it.
I've even thought about a macros that copies and paste all the current data from an older spreadsheet to the new one, but I'm not that good at macros. If I can stay away from macros, that would be good, but if not, then I'll have to dig in my heels and start leaning.
I am using Microsoft Excel 2003 and I am trying to import data from one worksheet to another. I found out how to import the data, but I can not find out how to get the data that I am importing to go into the labelled cells that I want them to go into. Is there any way that I can get Excel to do this, or am I searching for something that can't even happen?
It is so nice to check-in once in a while to see all these new ideas and solutions of people's problems. So, I would like to ask a question that really bothered me for some time, and it looks like I cannot find a full answer to it. So here it goes:
How can I import data which is either more than 65000 records long or it will sum up to be more than 65000 when imported? I need all my data to be on one worksheet, and I don't care if these data will be imported let's say in columns A B C, then once it reaches the 65K, it will be imported to the neighbouring columns D E F, etc.?
I searched the Ozgrid for an answer and I found a thread
I have a file created in Excel 2003 that uses a vlookup to reference another file, also created in Excel 2003. The function returns VALUE when the referenced file is closed. I get the VALUE error whether or not I update links upon opening the file. If I open the source file, the function calculates properly.
Here is the formula when the referenced file is open:
The full & correct path appears in the formula when the referenced file is closed.
Columns C, D & E in the referenced range contain text, column F contains a Sum. This file is linked to another file, also using lookups. The linked area in this file works without problem, but it is a precedent to the calculation in column F.
Both these files reside on a network in subdirectories of the same logical drive. I am using a laptop that briefly had Excel 2007 installed on it, but was wiped clean before it was issued to me.
How do I create a code to open a msgbox to select a number rows of records from 1-500 possible range to import from worksheet "Az3E" in Record4, to worksheet "AZ3E" in "Record2". Only import column A and E, to column A and E of the target worksheet starting with row 20. Do not import header row. In Column E import results as values only.
Title "Selection" Inputbox "Select range in Column A and E to be Imported" "Range/#of rows to import"
I want to import a CSV file into a worksheet. one of the things i need to do for the import is seperate the data if its a different currency.BUT copy the format from a sheet called "MASTER" which will be hidden. some of the variables are as follows, there will be more
0 = GBP (£) ¢ = USD (U.S Dollar) E = Euro S = CHF (swiss Franc) A = AUD
way to reference the name of a worksheet in a cell, or even better, use a cell reference to dictate the name of a worksheet.
In other words, I would like to create a new sheet, and set it's name ='Sheet1'!C1 so that if I changed C1, the worksheet would automatically be renamed to whatever is typed in C1.
If that is not possible, I would like to have a cell be tied to the name of a given worksheet, so that if I renamed the worksheet, the cell would change accordingly...similar to the &[Tab] function used in headers/footers.
I have an XLS spreadsheet which updates cells through an ODBC connection to a database. The information is pulled across ok and 90% of the Vlookup and IF statements work. The problem arises on a summary page.
When i start off the summary page has cell references in numeric order to another spreadsheet and pulls back the information to 4 cells Across and 1000 Down. ='Campaign Responses - Cash Break'!A2
This is a spreadsheet that changes once the queries have run and a number between 1-1000 records are returned. However once the data has changed and the page refreshed. Not all the results have been pulled across to the summary pages. A few are there but the numeric sequence jumps from......
I used to think I was moderately intelligent. Certainly, I thought I knew my way around a computer. Then I got the bright idea to try and learn VBA. Since then every attempt I've made in trying to produce the most basic of code results in mad fits of rage and me wanting to slit my wrists. I've read half a textbook and I keep trying to write simpler and simpler code to get some sort of result, just to give me the drive to carry on but no matter what I try it always goes completely wrong. So before I stick me head through the computer screen, here is today's attempt. I want to select a worksheet. I then want to copy the contents of cell A2 down to A1200.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Sheets("Calls Outcome").Visible = True Worksheets("Calls Outcome").Activate Range("A2").Select Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("A2:A1200") End Sub
I’ve stepped through the code and I get an error on “Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("A2:A1200")”. After spending several eight-hour days trying to get something out of VBA I have zero energy and zero patience.
I have a bit of a complicated one here so I have attached my book, its probably easier to undertstand the query by looking at the book. Hopefully somebody can help me out here.
I have 2 worksheets:
A results worksheet - this contains all category of results, each category has been given a specific sort id.
A foreign worksheet - this contains all categories found on the results worksheet with sort id = 7.
Now the complicated bit. The whole exercise is too pick up the correct exchange rate for the foreign category (sort id 7). each foreign type has a specific number at the end of its description in brackets e.g (3).
At the bottom of the "results worksheet" is a key which says what type of exchange rate to use for this type e.g. (3) Price of CAD 22.9 converted using exchange rate of CAD 1.9645 = £1.
What I need to do is on the foreign worksheet, it to recognise the number in the item description, keep it in mind then switch over to the "results worksheet" find the keys at the bottom of the page (the key is not necessarily in the same place all the time!!), match the number in the items description with the corresponding key and then find the exchange rate.
As i said very difficult to explain, since I reletively zero experience with this kind of work in excel. Luckily I been muddling my way through a work project gradually thanks to a forum member here. so i hope we can keep this up!
edit: two restrictions in the way this solution can be done: 1- Results worksheet can not be modified, but it can be referenced to using INDIRECT, and you can make any number of modifications outside of the results worksheet. 2. Any solution must be automatic. /edit
I have attached my workbook and highlighted the bits I need to fill and the picks I need to pick up.
Would be ever so grateful if some1 could show me the light here.
I want to export data from a set of named ranges in workbook x to another set of ranges in workbook y. The names of the ranges to be exported from and to are spesified in a table "Table_Export". Problem is I do not want to spesify in what sheets these respective ranges are located, seeing that I do not know the actual sheet names. But since the ranges are global it should somehow be possible to reference them in vba without referencing the respective worksheet?
The relevant code can be found below where either of the two 'commented lines within the if statement are what I want to accomplish.
Dim x As Workbook Dim y As Workbook Set x = ThisWorkbook Set y = Workbooks.Open(Range("Export_to").Value) Dim export_control As ListObject
