Rotate Range, Keep Defined Names Consistent.

Dec 1, 2009

as the title says, i need to rotate a range but to keep all defined names (single cell or range) consistent.

lets say i have the following cells filled:

1 2 3 4
1 2 3 4
1 2 3 4
1 2 3 4
1 2 3 4
1 2 3 4
1 2 3 4
now i have a few defined ranges. lets say:
range name, refers to
mycell1row1, A1
mycell90roanything, B1
mysomething, C1
mysomthingrange, A1:F1


what i need in the end is this:

1 1 1 1 1 1 1
2 2 2 2 2 2 2
3 3 3 3 3 3 3
4 4 4 4 4 4 4
and for defined names:
mycell1row1, A1
mycell90roanything, A2
mysomething, A3
mysomthingrange, A1:A7

Defined Names Referring To Nonexistent Range Won't Pick Up Once Existing

Feb 17, 2010

I have created 500+ defined names that refer to worksheets that do not exist (yet). When I add the previously nonexistent worksheets, the defined names that refer to them are not "live" and do not work in functions where that name is used. If you go into the defined names and click on the ones that refer to the now existent worksheet, they start to work, but I was hoping there was a way around this step (e.g. a simple macro that says "update all defined names").

I created all the names so that the person who will eventually be using this will only have to add an appropriately named worksheet and put the data in...then everything will automatically work. I do not think adding names is difficult, but the person who will be using this does, so I want to avoid that person mucking around in my names.

Range Selection Error (application-defined Or Object-defined)

Jun 9, 2009

I am having some trouble with a variable range selection within a regression. I keep getting an "application-defined or object-defined error." I've isolated each statement to find that the code that is causing the regression not to work is below (the error for that line of code states that the Select method of Range class failed):

Using Defined Names In VBA?

Aug 6, 2012

Trying to use a Defined Name as the cell reference in VBA. The idea is to change the value of a couple of other cells base on the value of the cell "FreightRow". I am starting with a Message box just to make sure the code was reading the cell reference.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim FR As Range
Set FR = ThisWorkbook.Names("FreightRow").RefersTo
If FR = 3 Then
MsgBox ("Help")
End If
End Sub

UDFs And Defined Names

Feb 9, 2009

I have a column J that is named Premium. If I use the function =INT(Premium) in K4 then it returns the integer for the value in J4. If I do the same thing with a UDF then the function argument receives all the values in column J. The author of the function says this is how UDFs work by design. Is there a way to use defined names with UDFs and have it work the way it does with built in functions?

Remove All Defined Names

Oct 18, 2008

I use Vlookup's a lot so i define my range with specific names a lot. But when i want to clear the range names via Insert>Name>Define>"Select the range name then click delete. but instead of clicking on each range name, i would like to to delete all.

I can create a macro to do this but some days i use different range names that other days so the below will not work exactly.

Using VBA To Create Defined Names?

Jan 13, 2013

Ive created the following code which I want to use to create a name in excel but it doesnt work.

when i put =INDIRECT i get an error and with out the = it places a text string in with speech marks on it e.g. defined name reference in excel reads ="INDIRECT('Health and Safety'!$AP$3)"

How do I get rid of those speech marks? the cell reference will change each time the macro runs and so will the sheet reference.

myC = ActiveCell.Address
Dim strNAME As String
strNAME = "YAXIS" & "_" & "HS" & Chartnumber
strSHEET = ActiveSheet.Name
ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets(ActiveSheet.Name).Names.Add Name:=strNAME, _
RefersToR1C1:="INDIRECT('" & strSHEET & "'!" & myC & ")"

Defined Names In Workbooks

Feb 24, 2009

I am currently overhauling a massive workbook, that previously relied on an absurd amount of named ranges in order to run vlookups. I no longer need these named ranges and would like to delete them to unclog the workbook. Currently I only see a way to delete them one by one. Is there a way to mass delete all of them?

Defined Names Vs Reference Cells?

Mar 23, 2012

I have several SumIf formulas that references a Cell in a Main Reference Tab. This is useful to me as I have over 100 tabs of data points and having a reference cell with that text is easier to change one time vs 100 times.

My question is this: Will Defined Names be "faster" than using a reference cell? With over 100 tabs, there's a lot of formulas and I'm looking for a faster way to get the same output without Excel Memory overload.

Copy From 'Refers To' In Defined Names

Sep 22, 2006

This thread is related to this thread. Offset, Match, Max Formula In the Insert - Name - Define window:

If one wants to copy a formula from the "Refers to" box and the formula extends past the right side of the box, how does one use "select all" or mark the whole formula from beginning to end so it can be copied without messing up the formula. At the moment, when I try this, it changes the formula to include the active cell of the worksheet that's open when I use the Ctrl + c etc. I have tried Ctrl + Ins and Ctrl + a and Ctrl + c. None of these are working for me.

Defined Names Not Recognised In Formula

Jun 1, 2007

I have a situation where I copy a worksheet to further on in the same workbook (essentially, using it as a template to create new sheets). I have certain cells that contain references to named ranges, e.g. on NewSheet1, cell $A$1 contains =StudyNo. Unfortunately, it shows as #NAME?. But, if I go to the formula bar and press enter, it resolves the name properly. I thougt maybe that automatic calculation was on manual but it is not. Why is this happening and what can I do to resolve it.

Chart Data Series Refer To Defined Names

Jan 15, 2014

I'm trying to use some defined names to create charts. Though it works at the very begin, some extremely weird things happen when I try to develop further .....

Attached please find the test file, which simplifies my real case but shows the same problem.


In the test file, three names are defined as below:

Line1: "=Xvalue*1"
Line2: "=Xvalue*2"
Xvalue: "=ROW(SampleChart!$A$1:$A$25)"

the chart is very sample: "=SERIES(,Test.xlsx!Xvalue,Test.xlsx!Line1,1)"

So far, it works very well. However, I just simply can't add the second line into the chart, for example, "=SERIES(,Test.xlsx!Xvalue,Test.xlsx!Line2,2)"

I canNOT even change "Line1" to "Line2" in the "SERIES" formula!

Create A Formula Which Sums The Values Associated With Several Defined Names

Aug 6, 2007

I am looking to create a formula which sums the values associated with several defined names. For example, I have a workbook with the following defined names SalesPerson1Total, SalesPerson2Total, etc. and these amounts are all sourced from multiple tabs. The amount of defined names (i.e. 'SalesPersons') is variable, therefore, I want the formula to read Sum the values of all defined names which are named with the following convention 'SalesPerson(X)Total'.

Excel 2013 :: Replacing Values In Existing Functions With Newly Defined Names

Jan 6, 2014

I'm trying to simplify a spreadsheet i've been given by defining names for certain values. I'm using Excel 2013. Is there any way to have all of the newly defined names I've created for cells automatically be inserted into all of the formulas that exist in the spreadsheet?


Old formula in one sheet of a workbook looks up a cell in another sheet with the value of ='sheet1!A1

I've given the value of cell A1 in Sheet1 a name of dgwd.

How do I get every formula in the workbook that references 'sheet1!A1 to change the value within that formula to dgwd?

How To Alphabetize A List

Mar 27, 2014

Is there a way to modify the following macro (graciously provided by user Alkey) so that it simultaneously alphabetizes the list as well? Actually, I would prefer a second macro, because I don't always want to alphabetize my lists. So, I guess I would need a function called something like Concat_Range_Alphabetize.

Auto Alphabetize List

Nov 25, 2009

I have a Master Data sheet for the input of personnel information. This information is then used in different Data Validation formats to be referenced by other sheets. Column P, I use the Concatenate formula to put together a needed grouping (Last Name, Shift/Kelly) taken from the Master Data sheet. I would like Column Q to then alphabetize Column P by the last name and also drop the blank cells. I would like this to be an automatic function, so as personnel are added or deleted, the alphabetical list will be updated as the information is changed.

I hope I've explained it well enough. I've attached a sample sheet to help make it easier to understand. I would prefer to do this via a forumla and not a macro, but if the only option is to use a macro, then so be it. Is this at all possible?

Alphabetize Combobox Items

Jan 19, 2010

I have a significant number of comboboxes on a multipage userform. Almost all of them are populated dynamically (it takes the user choice from one combobox, looks for that value on the spreadsheet and if it finds it, it takes whats in the next column and adds it to another combobox).

My problem is that all the items in these other comboboxes are not in alphabetical order. I'd like to find some code that will work for all my comboboxes so that I don't have to have the same code over and over again for each field.

I found the code below and that works to alphabetize the dropdown, but I still have to use it over and over again and change it for each fieldname (in red). I tried to use a variant and just make the value the same as each fieldname before it calls the sub and whats in red below was just my variable but that just crashes my excel.
