Add Formula & Auto Fill Via Macro Code

I want a Macro to be able to copy a formula down from cell A2 down the entire column within the data range. But, the problem I've got is that the spreadsheets I'll be using the Macro on will be different sizes. Currently, the VBA looks like this:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "= LOWER(RC[3])"
Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("A2:A17340"), Type:=xlFillDefault

So the "Destination:=Range("A2:A17340")" part copies the formula into all cells from A2 to A17340. Other spreadsheets might only have data up to cell A200, or Awhatever - is there a way of getting the macro to populate just the cells in column A but only where there is data adjacent in other columns?

Also, I want the Macro to be able to delete all rows wherever "DELETE" appears in a certain column - I had a look at the "Delete Entire Row Based on Criteria" Macro but I'm looking for a fully automated solution, rather than the question boxes coming up and asking which cell/criteria, I need to run this macro on multiple sheets and the criteria/column position will always be the same -

Copy/Fill Down Formula Macro Code
I have created a macro with the below formula in it:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=LEN(RC[-1])"
Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("L2:L234")

I am using column K and it looks up the length of this cell. When I created the formula I was using info that only went to line 234 which was fine. Once I clear the info in column K and input new info it can go further than line 234. How do I get the macro to look up the whole of column k without having to create a new macro each time?

Auto Fill Formula Using $
I created a database and made one small mistake doing it. The database is infinite amount of rows down and my formula needs to be corrected as such. In the current cells: (C1:C1000) i have the formulas referencing cells $B1, but i need it to reference $B$1. In C2 I need it to reference $B$2, C3 $B$3 and so on. If I autofill, it obviously just keeps the following cells at $B$1 and i can't keep the dollar bill sign.

What IF Auto Fill Date Formula
I would like to auto fill the present date if another cell of the same row is typed in and then lock that cell with the date.

For example. If someone types in cell A2 then I would like to auto fill D2 with the date 11/01/2007 and lock it.

If someone tomorrow types in cell A3 then the date would once again be autofilled in D3 to 11/02/2007 while D2 would still display 11/01/2007.

Auto Fill Within Macro
my macro simply activates a cell and all i want it to do is to auto fill downwards!
its intended to autofill down for about 100 rows but just cant figure it out!

but keep in mind the cell is always going to change so it cant be fixed

i.e this wont work:

Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("C95:C659")
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=513

because i need it to be autofilled from the CURRENT active cell only!

Auto-Fill Formula When Adjacent Cell Changes
what is prompting this formula to auto fill down when a value in an adjacent cell is entered.

In column A I enter an unformatted fax number.
In column B I use the following Text Formula:

Someone in my office copied the workbook and now any time a value is
entered into the next available Column A cell. The cell in column B will automatically apply the above formula and format the fax number. The person who copied the workbook does not know how this is working nor does anyone else in the office.

There are no macros embedded in this workbook so no event is firing to cause this.

I have attached a small copy of the workbook called "Auto format1.xls"

How to use:
-Select cell B20 and not nothing is in it.
-Enter any 9 digits in A20 and B20 somehow
copies down the formula from B19.

how to duplicate this.

Fill Range From IBM Reflection Macro Code
I'm working on some macros to fill and file paperwork from an IBM Reflection based system into an Excel spreadsheet. Here's the code I've written so far:

Private Sub cmdSend_Click()
Dim ExcelObj As Object
Dim ExcelWasNotRunning As Boolean
On Error Resume Next
Set ExcelObj = GetObject(, "Excel.Application")
If Err.Number <> 0 Then ExcelWasNotRunning = True
If optObligation = True Then
Set ExcelObj = GetObject("S:PublicVisual Basic FormsExcel FormsObligation.xls")

The problem I'm running into is that the data isn't loading the first time through. The spreadsheet opens, nothing happens, Excel closes. If I attempt to run the macro again without closing the form and clearing all the variables it runs perfectly as many times as I want to run it (which isn't terribly useful, because I'm stuck putting the same data into the form over and over again). If I unload the form then I get the same problem: first run, no data transfered.

Code To Auto Populate A Relative Formula Into A Column
I have a report that I run off a database and extract to Excel.

It has 3 fields: Title; FirstName; LastName. For example sake lets say they are in columns A, B, C. Now in D I have a fieldname of FullName and in D2 onwards the formula: =A2&" "&B2&" "&C2.

Now I currently manually type the formula and drag it down to the same row as the last entry in the first 3 columns so that I get the full title in one cell.

I wanted to know how I could enter the the formula above in column D so that it automatically does this for me?

Macro To Fill Down Formula As Many As There Is Data
Let's say I have data from column A up to column J.

Columns M, N, O contain formulas which calculate value from column J. Since this sheet is a template, the number of rows of data vary from month to month, i.e. the amount of records I copy and paste to columns A-J vary.

I would like to have a macro which will fill down the formulas in columns M, N and O as many as there is data in column J. Example: Let's say minimum number of row is 100, so up to row 100, column J already contains formulas. But if the following month the number of rows is 150, I would like the macro to automatically fill down the formulas in columns M, N and O up to row 150. But if the following month, there is only 130 rows, the macro should fill down to row 130 only.

Add Formula To Cell & Fill Down Macro
I have written a macro that creates a new spreadsheet and copies text into it. The number of rows varies depending on the input.

Yet, running the macro results in a sheet with the max rows (65k+). This is unmangeable, as it makes it a huge file and size and harder to print.

I only want there to be the number of rows that have text in them.

The larger problem is how these were even created in the first place. Currently:

' Formula for Job Name
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=LEFT(RC[12],8)"

' Fill Job Name
Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("A2", Cells(Rows.Count, "A")), Type:=xlFillDefault

I currently have this code ( which works perfect ) that was written by someone else. It performs an auto-fill in column "A".

I need to learn how to adjust this code to do it for other columns, but do not know currently.

Maybe someone could highlight of BOLD the adjustments to direct the code to the column.

Sub fill_rows_A_4()
Dim arrTmp As Variant
Dim lngRow As Long
With Worksheets("sheet1") 'adapt
arrTmp = .Range(.Cells(1, 1), .Cells(.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp))
For lngRow = 1 To UBound(arrTmp)
If arrTmp(lngRow, 1) = "" Then arrTmp(lngRow, 1) = arrTmp(lngRow - 1, 1)
.Range(.Cells(1, 1), .Cells(UBound(arrTmp), 1)) = arrTmp
End With

Auto Fill Value For Col. C Dependent On Value From Col. B
I have a spread sheet which tracks work we do on certain items. These items (about 200 of them) consist of a 3 or 4 number tracking code (they are all 4 numbers, but some have leading 0's.) This tracking code is entered into Column B and when we cross reference the number to a chart we have we can determine if item is either, "model A," or, "model B."

I want to get rid of that cross reference chart, or rather, I want excel to cross reference for me and automatically fill A or B into Column C, right next to the tracking code.

Is this possible without VBA? It seems like it may be something simple, but i've poked around and have done nothing but make a mess.

Auto Fill Formulas
A1 - B1
A2 - B2

Let's say B1 has a formula- =A1
b2 has formula = =A2

I want to copy all the formula in ColB
As it goes down in Column B, it should be =A2 at 2nd row, =A3 at 3rd row, =A4 at 4th row.

Reason being I want this formula to activate when the cell in Column A is filled. If the cell in Col A is empty, The formula in Col B should be blank!

Auto Fill After Inserting
I have a macro set up to automatically fill all of the cells in certain columns with the top cell's formula in that column. This is so I don't have to go through and manually "fill down" the formulas into the blank cells after I insert a row into my database. The problems is, though, that the macro sometimes takes a long a** time to run (and uses up a TON of memory...the doc. was 29,000 kb at one point!) because of the amount of rows & columns I have (approx. 5000 row & 34 columns) just one one sheet.

Anyway, is there a way to set up something in VBA to have it auto fill in the formulas in the columns I choose, after I insert a row, with the information that preceeds it?

So, for example, if I insert a row anywhere in my database, excel will know right away that I want that row filled w/ the formulas from the row above it.

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Check"

It works great, however I would like to not limit my cell ranges for the auto fills. I would like to auto fill to the end of the data, which changes with every download (additional rows).

Add Multiple Formulas In Row & Auto Fill Down
I am trying to do can’t really be recorded, at least i don’t think it can. I have a report that I run off and after I loaded it in Excel I then have to add in five columns at the end of the sheet. These are always in the same columns: R,S,T,U,V.

These are the formulas I have to then input
R =IF(G2="no invoices",A2,"")
T=IF(I2="Sent to AP",A2,"")
U=IF(I2="Force Settled",A2,"")
V=IF( COUNTIF($R$2:$U$10054,A2),A2,0)

Note for column V, the range R2:U10054 would depend on how many rows is in the report, its just in this example the report does have 10054 rows. The columns would always stay the same. I would then copy the formulae down for the number of rows that is in the report and filter column V by entries that equal zero to give me the rows I am looking to analyse. Is this the type of thing that can be written as a macro so that everytime I have a new report open in Excel I can just run the macro and it will do all of this for me?

Anyway To Make Auto Fill Time Value Static
I have 2 cell, A1 and B1. When any data is entered into A1, B1 will display the time corresponding to when the data was entered.

I was thinking about function for B1 would be "=IF(A1="","",now()) ". It worked such that it will display the time, however the value in B1 will automatically update itself if I were to randomly input any data in any other cell too.

For example, I input "testing" in A1. B1 display "11:20PM". Ten minutes later, I input "hello" in A2. B1 now display "11:30PM".

Anyone know a way to stop B1 from updating? or only update when new data is entered into A1 only?
