Adding Number To Cell Reference Not To Contents

May 28, 2006

I want to create a formula that will refer to the cell I want by adding a number to the cell reference, not to the contents of the cell. For example, lets say that the cell C11 holds a value of 22. I want to add 4 to C11 to get my formula to reference cell C15, I don't want it to add 4 to the contents of C11 which is 22 and would give me a result of 26. I have a large spreadsheet and I can't just fill down the way I have it now and I don't want to have to retype the formula every time.

Drag A Cell Without Adding To The Contents

Dec 31, 2008

I have an inventory sheet where I occassionally have to create more rows with the same information. So I will create rows and then copy and paste info into them. What I would like to do is be able to drag the information by clicking on the lower left corner and populate the cells that way. The problem is that if there is a number in the cell then it will automatically add to it. For instance, if I try to drag the contents of cell labeled klaraid 1112 then it will add incrementally to this in the cells below.....1113, 1114 and so on. If there are no numbers in the thing i'm dragging then it works fine. How do I drag cells with numbers without it adding to the contents incrementally?

Adding Color And A Value To A Cell Based On Contents In Another Cell

Apr 28, 2014

I have values in a number of cells. Next to them, if there was a value, regardless of what the value is, except blank or zero, i would like the cell to turn blue and if possible have a 1 in the cell.

I've used the conditional formatting, however, among the options, 'less than' is the closest to to getting the color right. The issue is that if the cell has nothing in it, it still colors the corresponding cell blue; because it is not less than the already blank cell. If it is blank, I don't want it to color the cell.

Adding Multiple Row Contents Based On The Content Of A Single Cell

May 30, 2007

Been trying to work this one out and have ended up banging my head against the wall.

Basically I have a spreadsheet, in the first column is the person's name, in the secon which team they are in and following this a cell for each day of the month with their availability.

The team name is a selection from a list, the availability is 1-6 (different levels of availability)

I'm trying to do subtotals at the bottom for each separate team, so the very last row each of the cells for each is added up:

Name Team 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th etc.
Mr X ___1st___1______2__1
Mr Y ___2nd_______2________5__5__5
Mr Z ___1st___1____________3__3__3

Total 1st: 2 2 1 3 3 3
Total 2nd: 2 5 5 5

So basically the formula in the last row goes along the lines of:

Add each cell in the column IF the team name = 1st

INDIRECT - Sum Contents Of Column On Another Worksheet Up To Certain Cell Reference

Jan 24, 2012

Trying to use INDIRECT to sum the contents of a column on another worksheet upto a certain cell reference which is in another cell on the worksheet.


I have taken it back to simply having sheet1 with numbers in A4 to A23, then sheet2 with A23 in cell B1, and the formula above it C9, but I keep getting #REF!.

The formula works fine if on sheet1 without the worksheet names in it. Formula evaluation gets to =SUM(INDIRECT("Sheet1!A4:Sheet1!A23")) then gives =SUM(#REF!)

Adding To Cell Reference

Jun 25, 2012

I am trying to add to a cell number and I am not entirely sure its possible. Here is my question:

My formula is thus:
='Sheet1'$A1 On sheet 2

And My next cell that I want it to show would be From Sheet 1 A4, then Sheet 1 A7, and so on and so on.

Can I do something on Sheet 2 to put =A1+3 and that would somehow give me A4?

I am trying to use the reference of Sheet 1 A1 and have next cell show me the value of Sheet 1 A4, then Sheet 1 A7 and so on and so on.

Substitute A Number Into Cell Reference?

I have the formula in cell A2 =average(A100:A1100). However the range is not always the same so need a formula that will allow me to enter '200' in cell B2 and that will make the formulae in cell A2 calculate =average(A200:A1100). Likewise, if '300' is entered in cell B2 the formula in A2 will calculate =average(A300:A1100).

Adding Dim'd Variables: Ignoring Strings & Adding Number

Jan 13, 2007

I've got a problem involving several Dim'd Variables needing to be added up, they're all Dim'd as Variants though as they can be either strings or numbers at any time.

I need a formula (VBA) to add them up (to add their actual numeric values - not just a "1" if they contain a number) and ignore them all together if they contain string values.

Match Function For Cell Reference Row Number

Sep 5, 2007

I am trying to acccess a cell value from a seperate worksheet. The cell reference needs to be generated by a seperate formula. In this example

=DSInfo!C28 // provides the correct result i.e the contents of cell C28 on worsheet DSInfo =MATCH(A4,DSInfo!C1:C35,0) //provides the correct row number - in this case 28

However on trying to combine the two =DSInfo!C&MATCH(A4,DSInfo!C1:C35,0) // provides only a formula error. I'm guessing this is a simple syntax error on my part but after hours of trying various ways I'm still having no luck.

Adding Comma As Delimiter Before Number In Cell For Entire Worksheet?

Oct 7, 2011

I do receive invoices from my vendors. They send me an invoice in PDF formate. I am using able2extract software to conver the PDF to excel. It is working great but most of the times my vendors enters the items/Case in the description field. Like the example below:

"Bajri Rotla 11 oz.(24)"

I would like to place a "," in between the last character and begining of the first number. In the above case it will be after "a" (in Rotla) and before "1" in (11). If I can do this then I can apply texttocolumn from excel and use "," as delimiter and separate item name from size and case/Pack. Then can use another "Texttocolumn" and separate size and case/pack. If there is a VBA code that can be written for this it would make my life a whole lot easier.

Following are 3 images that I have copied from actual data.

1. Original PDF invoice data that I receive from my Vendor

2. Image of the excel file before formating. This is the format from "Able2Extract" (3rd party software that I use to convert PDF to excel. Works great!!

3. Converted Excel data sheet. This is the way I want to format the data.

Drag Down Formula But Cell Reference Number Not Updating?

Jan 27, 2014

I am trying to drag down a formula (see below). the cell reference A6 and E6 is not updating to A7 and E7 etc etc when i drag the formula down using the corner thing. it remains constant at A6 and E6.

=HYPERLINK("#INDEX('Shipping Tracker Week X'!$F$4:$F$3000,MATCH(1,('Shipping Tracker Week X'!$B$4:$B$3000=A6)*('Shipping Tracker Week X'!$D$4:$D$3000=E6),0))","Link 1")

im pretty sure the problem comes down to the hashtag and quotation marks that i added, as the formula properly increased the cell references when i drag down without the hashtag and quotations. however, i sort of need it because adding those seems to be the only way i can get the hyperlink to link me over to the other sheet and to the correct cell containing the hyperlink.

part 2 of problem: the hashtag and quotations is currently a workaround method for me. the original intention was for the hyperlink to directly link me to a website, which is referenced from a separate sheet. however, without the hashtag and quotations, i get a "Cannot open specified file" error.

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?

Convert Cell Number Reference To String Address

I have something like the following:

If Worksheets("RawData"). Cells(1, nColumn).Value = Worksheets("RawData").Cells(12, 16).Value Then code (I know the cell location of interest at this point)
End If

Then I End up needing To Do something Like the following
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).XValues = _

“L1:N1” above is a sample. Given the code above it I have the cell location in question but it is in the format such as .Cells(12,16). That doesn’t do me much good when range wants something like “L1”. I don’t know how to convert that (12,16) to a L16 for example.

Find Column Number From Search Pass To Integer Cell Reference

Jul 21, 2007

I am building a Workbook which takes data from SheetA and inserts it into SheetB.
Part of the data is only entered when a positive value exists.

I then do an export from SheetB.

The problem is that I need to get the column number and pass it to the cell reference based on the field name in row 1.

Dim sFindstring As String
Dim rFindcell As range
Dim iR As Integer
Dim iC As Integer

sFindString = " Find this string in the cell"
'Using cells find the findstring
Set rFindCell = Cells.Find(What:=sFindString, After:=[A1], LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious)

'OK so look here
iR = 3
'I am trying to pick up the column number
iC = rFindCell.Column

rFindCell throws an object or with block variable not set error. Is there some property that I need to set.
