Dec 10, 2012

How Auto Resize (height) cell to fit text? (macros, formulas, setting)? One can make the height of the cell is reset according to the amount of text?

Jan 30, 2014

I'm writing a code to adjust the height of the row based on the wraped lines. I want it to be "16.5 * (number of lines)".

First I counted the number of lines in each cell. I wrote at D1 the formula to calculate the lines at A1:

=LEN(A1)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1;CHAR(10);""))+1

Then I wrote this vba code to adjust the height:

Dim x As Double
x = 1
For Each Cell In Range("A1: A11")
Cell.RowHeight = 16.5 * CELL(D"x")
x = x + 1
Next Cell
End Sub

How do I do that multiplication? How can I tell it to multiply 16,5 with the value of the cell D"x"? Is this the best way?

## Finding The Column With The MAX Height In Comparson Wth Othr Columns Of UNEVEN Height

Feb 24, 2009

Finding the Column with the MAX Height in comparison with other Columns of UNEVEN Height

I need two things :

1. I have several columns starting from Column B till Column F, each column having values starting from the third ROW.

Ex:-

Lets say Column B contains two values in B3 and B4, Col C three values in C3 C4 and C5, Col D four values D3,D4,D5 and D6, Col E two values in E3 and E4, Column F five values F3,F4,F5,F6 and F7.

2.I am using 10^{4,3,2,1,0} in a particular portion of a formula, Now the number of elements in the array or in the Curly Braces depends on the number of Columns filled from Column B as explained in the Point 1.

Now, since I have five columns under consideration I have this order as mentioned here {4,3,2,1,0} , I would like to know whether I could make this dynamic, as in if there were only four columns then this would be {3,2,1,0} and if more this array could self-fill and expand..

If that's possible, then how do we use it in the formula, Is it by the virtue of the INDIRECT function?

## How To Get Cells In A Column To Adjust Height Automatically / Text Wrap

Oct 28, 2011

Is there a way to get cells in a column to adjust their height automatically, or with a macro to account for text overflow/wrap?

For example, lets say a column is 200 px in width and it's height is enough to view a single line of text, and the column is set to wrap text. Now more text is entered into the cell and it needs to be re-sized to fit two lines of text.

Is there a way to create a macro button to have this done automatically?

I am trying to figure out a formula for the boss, but I just cannot wrap my mind around what I need to do. I’m sending out an S.O.S.! If you can figure this out, please respond.

=MIN(b4*12-25%,b4*12-500) + MIN(c4*12-25%,c4*12-500) fills in the cell with the correct answer, but not quite the answer that I need. Let me illustrate:

The first part of the formula is to take b4 times 12 minus 25% --if this amount is less than or equal to 500 then use the amount. If it is more than 500 then use 500.

(b4*12-25%)
234.25 * 12 = 2811 – 25% = 2811
2811 - 25% = 702.75 500 Since this amount is more than 500, 500 should be used instead. ~~this is actually the amount that I want to show in the cell, the amount saved~~
2811 - 500 = 2311 ~~this is the answer that is showing up in the cell, which is not quite what I need. ~~

I want to find the answer to this question: b4 times 12 equals ?, subtract 25% or 500 from that, insert this answer into cell.

One of my biggest problems with this is that I can’t even figure out how to say what it is that I need. The formula is doing exactly what I'm telling it to do and I can't even figure out what it is that isn't working. This formula is confusing my brain…!

## Adjusting If -Then Statement In Code

Dec 8, 2009

I am trying to make some additions to this code. Basically what it does is copy some data from another sheet. Now there are two types of copying here.

1. A ‘call value’ from another sheet is copied to this sheet.

2. The formula from the previous cell in the column is copied. (eg. Formula in C3 is copied to C4, formula in D3 is copied to D4, and so on)

So the macro works fine for all cases EXCEPT the initial entry, which will be in Row3, that’s where the formulae begin. So I need some kind of an If-Then statement.. to say if A3 is empty then do the following, If not then do something else....

How would you adjust the network days formula so that Wednesday is considered a non-working day?

Oct 22, 2008

I have a table upon which I wish to perform vlookups, however I need to be able to adjust the range that the vlookup searches to include any data that may be added in the future without having to go into the sheets and change the vlookup.

Example

Name DOB
Tom 01/01/81
Dick 02/02/82
Harry 03/03/83

Fred 04/04/84

I would like the vlookup to automatically accommodate the extra entry without needing any changes.

I've seen this done on data validation with the following formula:

=OFFSET(\$a\$1,0,0,MATCH(REPT("z",255),\$A:\$A))

It only needs to do new rows, not columns.

## Sumproduct, Excluding Some Values And Adjusting

Oct 21, 2009

I'm working on a spreadsheet to rank stores based on how they perform in certain metrics. These metrics are weighted, and occasionally a metric for a store will get waived. I'm having trouble figuring out how to handle this without making a custom formula for each occurrence.

## Adjusting Date Based On Time

Jan 28, 2010

I have the a file that is downloaded from AS400. The time column is presented in 24 hours format in column D. For example : 92114 means 9.21 am. I need a formula to adjust the date in column B based on the following criteria:

1) If the time is after 2.00 pm, adjust to the next working day taking into account public holidays in column H

2) If the time is before 2.00 pm, remain the same day

3) if the time is after 2.00 pm and it is Friday, adjust to the next working day taking into account public holidays in column H

The correctly adjusted date is in column E.

## Adjusting Price Based On Volume?

Sep 17, 2010

I am trying to figure out if something here is even possible. I have an order form and a price list. I get different pricing based on the quantity I purchase. I would like to have the price auto populate based on the quantity entered. The price will be on another sheet.

I couldn't find a lot of info but I also may not know where to look.

example:

if (b2<62) then price is (\$sheet2.b2)
if (b2<124) then price is (\$sheet2.c2)
if (b2<372) then price is (\$sheet2.d2)

Is this even possible to put into a formula?

## Auto Adjusting Total From Query

Jan 30, 2013

I currently have a tab that is contains a macro driven query pulling data from an access database. However, I have selected the option to add new rows for new data which in turn causes my sumtotal at the bottom of the sheet to be over ridden by this new data. My question is, could there be a way to have the total row move down as new rows are added from the query (formatting and all)?

## Adjusting VB Code To Combine Only Certain Worksheets

## Graphically Adjusting Zoom Using A Scroll Bar

Dec 14, 2007

I am created a very simple account plan for colleagues in my team which is proving to be very poular with the exception of one thing.

I created the plan which is around 30 sheets on my laptops highest resolution setting. 1400 x 1050. Only one other colleague has this res available so of course when the rest of the team open it, it looks huge.

I need help with this as I'm still very new to excel, although learning very fast!

My preference for finding a fix for this would be to insert a scroll bar on each sheet that, when scrolled, changes the zoom of the page between a range of 50% and 100%. This may not be the best way of doing it but I'm trying to make the sheets as simple to use as possible as some of my colleagues are only just compuetr literate, let alone excel competent!

## Adjusting Macro To Use On Time Method.

Jul 5, 2006

I have a macro on a workbook that when I hit the button it asks for the date of a register sales journal that I want to import. Then it asks for the cash in drawer amount. Then it puts in all of the data into the sales spreadsheet. Now I want to use the on time method to bypass the button and the entry of the date, and even get rid of the cash in drawer. I want to make the macro run at 9:30 every night. I want it to use the date on the computer to tell it which date to find? Here is the code I'm using! button macro

' Button2_Click Macro

Sub Button2_Click()
ImportData
End Sub

Here is the main macro
Function FileExists(sFile As String) As Boolean
Dim iLen As Integer
On Error Goto NO_FILE
FileExists = True

iLen = FileLen(sFile) ................

This is for a call centre and sales office. there are 3 tabs. Tab 1 represents the values that we update at the end of each week which then gives a running total over an 8 week period and then an average below. there is a seperate table for each staff member. Tab two is for one team of people and tab two is for the other team. Namely LG team and Sales Team. the tab 2 and 3 are to show league tables that both collect data from tab 1, but then create a league table showing who is top dog over the 8 week period. But this also has to self adjust to be in order.

on tab 2 and 3, the tables on the left will be hidden once complete, but are there to work out the league. the table on the right is then there to put and show the league in the right order. I HOPE THAT MAKES SENSE, COS EVEN I'M LOST NOW. I've followed previous advice on this and inputted what I think are the right formulas, but for some reason it's coming up with the wrong answers and several names are being repeated which are wrong. For example even when ben perhaps is number 2, it will show rahim as number 2 and number 3. why is this?

also, how do I get by the problem of on the odd occassion when perhaps ben and rahim have the same stats and are joint second, but it will only show ben as 2 and ben as 2 again, leaving rahim out of it. WOW. I'm glad I've got that out of my system. I was doing the washing up yesterday donig Excel formulas in my head. But the washing up got done at least.

## Copy Cells And Paste Like A Cut - No Adjusting For Movement?

Jan 26, 2014

Is there some possible way to control-C type copy a range from a sheet, then paste it duplicating everything from the original cheet; i.e., exact same cell references as are in the cell formulas?

I am suspicious it is right in front of me and I can;t see it, but I have run through all the special pastes that I could from the left-click paste sub-menus and I can not find it!

## Adjusting Charts To Reflect Data Properly

Feb 2, 2009

I've compiled data into a spreadsheet which indicates the number of homes sold over the course of 3 years (from 1/1/05 to now) along with their price per square foot, sale price, year built, bed/bath count, and other pertinent factors regarding each property.

I've extrapolated graphs from these in the past which indicated the trends in each category over time (i.e.: Average quarterly price per square foot over time, and so forth).

The data range I'm working with now, however, is from an area of my region so small, that the number of units sold over the past few years is sporadic. Whereas it's normally 100 to 1000 units that comprise my data, now it's only 15 units.

This has created gaps in my line graphs where the price per square foot will dramatically drop down to zero over the periods in time where no sale was recorded. So the line graph ends up looking like a zig-zaggy range of peaks reflecting the price per square foot of a sale, and valleys representing "\$0.00" for periods of time where nothing has sold.

To have a Price per square foot of \$0.00 is incorrect since in reality nothing was sold.

I would like to be able to eliminate the portions of the graph that have the "\$0.00" so that the line graph can "jump" from one sale to the next when the quarterly data indicates 0 units sold.

I'd like to do this without having to eliminate those areas in my spreadsheets. Is there any "catch-all" tool that might do this or is that just crazy talk?

## Adjusting Percentage Values On Cell Change

Jan 8, 2009

Good afternoon Gentlemen, I have a column of data, with a varying number of percentage values that add up to 100%, separated by "NA", i.e.

33%
33%
33%
NA
25%
25%
25%
25%
NA
100%
NA
20%
20%
20%
20%
20%
NA

Now... when I change one of the values I would like the others to even up, i.e. in the last example if I change a 20% to 50% I would like the others to change to 10%... any ideas?
