Add Vlookup, With Variables, To Cell To Reference Another Workbook Via Macro Code

May 21, 2008

I am trying to use VB to vlookup between to workbooks
1. Make active workbook WBK1
2. Make workbook being open WBK2
3. Copy and Paste between WBK1 and WBK2
4. Have a vlookup in WBK1 and bring in the values from WBK2
5. Close WKB2
6. Copy, Paste, and transpose values in wkb1 within wkb1

The script works fine until it reaches the vlookup step. I have used the vlookup by itself without the copy and paste code successfully but when I combine the two it provides me with the error 9. Subscript out of range.

Reference Data From Closed Workbook Macro Code

Jun 5, 2008

Following syntax is incorrect, what is wrong? This should happen: Select op a specific worksheet (named DATA) in the workbook Report.xls and I empty the contents

Reference Variables / Constants In Add-in From Workbook

Feb 21, 2008

I'm wondering if it is possible to declare a constant in an add in, and then reference that constant from workbooks that use that add in?

Basically I want to set a version number in the add in, and check it from the workbook.

Add Nest Formula/Function To Cell With Variables Via Macro Code

May 22, 2008

I would like to use a varible Cell for the following forumula:

ActiveCell.Formula = "= ROUND(PIExpDat(""TimeEq('""&Cells(RowNdxG,4)&F$2,F$3,F$4,F$5,0,)/3600,1)"

I have underlined the variable. This is not working but is rather showing up as a string value Cells(RowNdxG, 4).

Reference Cell For Worksheet Name Macro Code

Apr 11, 2008

I've got 3 sheets, A, B, and C. In sheet C, I have a cell named "element". That cell can have either the letter A or the letter B in it. In my VB code, I want to reference the sheet which correlates with the "element" cell. So,


when the user clicks my "go" button, it calls this logic, and I want the worksheet that correleates to the letter in the cell in worksheet C - to open.

The reason for my posting - this is not working, and may not even be possible. Perhaps someone has experience in this and knows how to do it - or knows a different way to do this.

Reference Cell On Non Activate Sheet Macro Code

Jun 10, 2008

I have a UDF in Cell Sheet1!A1 that inputs some ranges from Sheet1 and calculates a number. Then I have a sub that calculates the value of this function with Evaluate(Sheet1!A1.formula). However, this only works when I am in Sheet1. Otherwise, I get the wrong calculation. How can I avoid this? I will post the code in the open source forum as it otherwise is quite good and automatically resizes array functions to their proper size.

Add AVERAGE Formulas To Cells Using Variables In Macro Code

Apr 15, 2008

I am trying to have the formula =( SUMIF(S2:S125,">0",S2:S125))/(COUNTIF(S2:S125,">0")) Put into cells through vba. What I did to get the formula is typed it into an excel cell to find the average of a group of cells that do contain blank cells. The formula brought out the proper results. So all I did is put the formula into vba and changed the appropriate parts. The range will not be the same of course, but there is what I have.

ActiveCell.Formula = "=(SUMIF(" & ActiveCell.Offset(orow + 2, 0).Address & ":" & ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0).Address & ","">0""" & "," & ActiveCell.Offset(orow + 2, 0).Address & ":" & ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0).Address & "))/(COUNTIF(" & ActiveCell.Offset(orow + 2, 0).Address & ":" & ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0).Address & ","">0""" & "))"

When I show a msgbox for ActiveCell.Formula (Msgbox activecell.formula), it shows me the formula as above - =(SUMIF(S2:S125,">0",S2:S125))/(COUNTIF(S2:S125,">0")) Except instead of the s:ranges, it shows $L2:$L125 (which is correct). The quotes do show up around the criteria in both the sumif and countif. I keep receiving an error. I put a msgbox err.description & ", " err.number dialog in. The error comes up as ", 0" (no quotes).

Calling Macro In Another Workbook And Carrying Some Variables Back And Forth

May 22, 2013

I have a macro running in a workbook that gathers some data (a date, a string and a few arrays). Towards the end of this macro, I need it to open another workbook and run a macro that sits in this other workbook, using the data from the first workbook. I then need it to return some results (several integers) back to the first macro to be pasted into the first workbook.

I gather that I can't use 'Call' as the second macro is in another workbook.

I've found that I can use Application.Run but I'm unsure how to carry variables back and forth using this.

How to move the variables between macros / workbooks using the Application.Run option, or maybe another way of doing things?

I have the following macro which runs vlookups between two sheets in excel. Whenever i add columns to the range the vlookup column reference is not the correct cell. Is their any way I can adjust the macro so that the column number adjusts in the formula when a new column is added??

Sub template()
ActiveCell.Formula = "=if(VLOOKUP(C6,'Project master'!B7:BG150,3, FALSE)="""", """",VLOOKUP(C6,'Project master'!B7:BG150,3, FALSE))"

Workbook / Worksheet Reference Macro?

Apr 19, 2012

I have a Workbook that has a macro that, as of now, is referencing the Workbook's file name. I'd like it to just be referencing the worksheet itself (it is in the same workbook) so that when the file name is changed, the macro still works.

I know which part needs to be changed... just not what to!

Dim Cell As Range
Dim DstWkb As Workbook
Dim DstWks As Worksheet
Dim R As Long
Dim Rng As Range
Dim RngEnd As Range
Dim SrcCols() As Variant
Dim SrcWks As Worksheet

VBA: Vlookup And Return Cell Reference

Nov 11, 2008

i am trying to write some code to analyse a weightlifting movement that occurs 3 times. In particular there is a part of the macro where the user will input the start and end time of the movement using input boxes (to only select relevant data).

I want to then use a vlookup function to search for the start and end times in a range (1 column) in the time range and return the cell reference of these so i can select only these values and either create a graph or do more analysis. My code for this particular part so far looks like:

Vlookup, Using A Cell That Contains The Table Reference

Dec 12, 2008

I have a worksheet that uses a lot of vlookups and I have to update the filenames and locations quite often. I would like to update a single cell rather than updating every single formula.

However I am getting the #VALUE error when trying this.

Simplified Example:
I have: =VLOOKUP(A3,[Table.xls]Sheet1!$A$1:$B$4,2,FALSE)
I would like to place [Table.xls]Sheet1!$A$1:$B$4 into a cell (D1) for example.

And have my vlookup function as =VLOOKUP(A3,$D$1,2,FALSE)
This way I only have to update D1 when I want to change the filename instead of a whole lot of functions.

Finding Cell Reference Using VLookup

Nov 15, 2013

I am currently having real problem using the formula below:


What i am trying to do with this formula is return the cell address of an item that is in a different sheet.

The reference the for search is in Cell B7 which is a date, it then looks at a different sheet "Data" for this date which is in Column A. It then returns the Cell Reference of Column C of the same row.

Currently it is just returning the value of column C and not the cell reference.

Vlookup On A Cell That Reference Another File

Jan 9, 2009

I'm using a spreadsheet to assimilate data from a number of different files. Now I need to vlookup on this compiled data, but the vlookup cannot find the value because it is not looking at the value of the data in the cell, but rather the formula. How do I get vlookup to search a column by the value displayed in that cell, rather than the reference to some other file?

Macro Code To Add Reference On Sheet To Next Worksheet

how to use VBA to write a formula in one sheet that refers to a fixed cell on the sheet to the right. The referenced sheet may have different names and it may be in a different order (i.e. not Sheet(2)) but it will always be one sheet to the right. I just want to have cell A1=(cell B2 one sheet to the right).

Reference Named Range By Position Macro Code

Mar 11, 2008

This seems really basic, but I can't seem to find it...

Using Visual Basic, if I have a named range, lets say like "NAMEDRANGE", how can I refer to cells in that range by their position in the range? For example, if I want to refer to the cell in the 2nd row and 3rd column of the range.

Also is their an easy way to refer to the first(top-left) cell in a named range?

VLOOKUP Where Reference MATCH Cell Has A Formula Behind It

Jan 11, 2014

I am trying to create a lookup formula where the cell value to match has a formula behind it.

For example: =INDEX(AR7:AR371,MATCH(G28,AE7:AE371,0))

The trouble I'm having is that the value in G28 is derived from a formula and the Index Match formula then gives a #N/A result. If I change the value in G28 (a date) manually, so directly enter a date, the Index Match formula works ok.

Is there any way of getting the Index Match formula to work, or Vlookup would also do although that at the moment that has the same problem with G28 having a formula behind it.

Vlookup Displays, If Reference Cell Is Blank?

Jan 22, 2009

I am trying to use vlookup so that when each site name is selected the relevant comments for that site are displayed.

I have a formula that is working, but it displays "0" if there is nothing in the cell. How do i get it to display a blank cell if thre is nothing in the reference cell.

this is the formula that i am using:

=IF($C$4="", "", IF($C$4="No Match", "", (VLOOKUP($C$4,Comments!$A$2:$U$295, 5,0))))

The site name appears in C4, and is selected from another sheet in the workbook.

Reference A Cell For Tab Name In VLOOKUP Table Array

May 27, 2009

Sheet 1 contains:

Item Sheet 2
ABC =vlookup(A2,'Sheet 2'!$A:$B,2,false)

Sheet 2 contains:

Item Data

I'm trying to get the vlookup to return the value "2"

Right now, I'm manually entering the tab name in the vlookup function, even though it's contained in cell B1.

The tabs are contained in the same workbook if that matters. Since this workbook is growing rather quickly, this is a painful process and doesn't feel very scalable. Since I'm using a mac, I need to do this with functions vs. macros. Does anybody know how I can reference a cell for the name of a tab in the vlookup function?

I was thinking I could maybe somehow do this with the INDIRECT function but I'm stumped.

How can I do the following....if for example I have the following vlookup;

=vlookup(A12, 'sheet 2 $A$2:$ID50$, 3, false

How can I change the column index i.e. the 3, to reference to a cell.

=vlookup(A12, 'sheet 2 $A$2:$ID50$, H1, false

The above example doesn't work but I'm sure something can be done using TEXT or VALUE

Using Formula With Cell Reference To Work In VLOOKUP Function

Jan 30, 2014

I have problem with a spreadsheet that I am trying to create.

I have a large sheet of data which is dumped in from another program. This contains our deliveries and orders etc.

Now for planning purposes, I would like to see how much of each item I have on order.

I can use VLOOKUP, but that will only give me the amount for the first order it encounters. But not the 3rd, 4th etc. I could use SUMIF but I need the dates as well. After doing some searching I think I have found a way of doing this: I can get the first easier enough:

=VLOOKUP(D$11,'purchase order'!$A$1:$K$6000,5,FALSE), this gives the first order than the another =VLOOKUP(D11,'purchase order'!$A$1:$K$6000,11,FALSE) for its date.

For the second column to check any other orders I thought I could find the cell referance for the first SEARCH: which is

A108: ="A"&MATCH(D11,'purchase order'!A:A,0).

Is there any way of using this Reference to start a new VLOOKUP. So the Lookup Range starts at this reference?? To make things harder it is on another sheet.

VLookup (or HLookup) Cell With Reference Rather Than Actual Number

Oct 13, 2011

I am doing a vlookup on a cell range where the value I'm trying to lookup (a date) exists, but it's not an actual number in the's a reference to another cell with that value (somewhere completely different).

So, I'm trying to vlookup(date(1/1/2011),A1:A12,2,false) to get the B column value.

1/1/2011 #
2/1/2011 #
12/1/2011 #

However, the A column is not the actual date. It is a reference to another cell somewhere completely different that has the actual date 1/1/2011.

When I do a vlookup trying to find 1/1/2011, it can't see it there unless I overwrite the reference in A1 (for instance) with the actual date.

Can I do a vlookup and keep my cell references?
