# Anchor Cell In Formula. Absolute

Dec 8, 2006

I am doing percentages (very simple formula)

The formula looks like this =B7/B5
Now when I drag it to the box below I get =B8/B6
But I need the numerator to increment and
the denominator to stay the same.
So that it would look like this =B8/B5

## Anchor Reference In Formula

Jun 5, 2007

I am very happy using Excel 2007 new table features.

1) I have a table with this header:

Name-Surname-Code-January-February...

2) I have this sumif formula to sum month values for each name

=SUM.IF(MyTable[Name];\$G4;MyTable[January])

3) When I copy my formula to the right it shows

=SUM.IF(MyTable[Surname];\$G4;MyTable[February])

The problem is that I canīt let the [Name] part fixed. I tried with [\$Name\$] thinking about excel 2003 logic, but I didnīt work. I need to copy my formula to the left, leting the [Name] fixed and allowing [Month] to change...

## Add Formula With Absolute Row To A Cell

Dec 12, 2011

I want to add a formula with absolute row to a cell.

The desired formula in the cell is something like "=SUM(B\$5:B11)"

However, when i use the following code I keep getting error 1004 'Application-defined or object-defined error'

Code:
topCell.Cells(CurrentRow, 3)FormulaR1C1 = _
"=SUM(R-" & CurrentRow - 1 & "C[-1]:RC[-1])"

It works when the bracket [] is used for row, but it does not give me absolute row in the formula.

Code:
topCell.Cells(CurrentRow, 3)FormulaR1C1 = _
"=SUM(R[-" & CurrentRow - 1 & "]C[-1]:RC[-1])"

## Using A Relative Or Absolute? Cell In Formula

Feb 20, 2009

I'm working on my first real macro - so I'm a greenhorn. I've spent a few hours trying to research a solution, but most threads are too technical for me so I'm hoping someone can really help me out.

I am trying to use a formula that references a cell that changes day to day from when I use the macro. I need to use a formula which grabs from a cell in a non concrete location. Let me try and show you what I mean.

From I4:I10, I need a formula like this:

## Copy Absolute Formula, Without Changing Every Cell

Sep 23, 2009

I think this should be easier than I am making it out to be, but the answer is escaping me....

Among other things, I have a workbook with these worksheets in it: Hours, Cost, Profit, Revenue.

Columns A, B, C & D should be exactly the same on each worksheet. So, I have all the data for these columns entered into Hours, and then reference that worksheet on the other ones.

That works fine until I sort it differently and then instead of having row 2 reference row 2, it will be in row 9, etc.

Now I know I can use =+Hours!\$A\$2 for the absolute reference, but then i would manually have to change the reference on each cell.

SO - (finally the question) Is there a way to use the absolute reference without having to manually enter it into each cell?

## Anchor A Graphic To A Cell?

Dec 2, 2008

I've got a couple of graphics that I want to include in one of my spreadsheets, and I just want to anchor them to a cell. Nothing fancy, no macros, no formulas, nothing like that.

## Anchor-Fix CommandButton To A Cell

Nov 10, 2006

Is there any way to bind a Commandbutton to a cell's location, so that when column widths or row heights are shifted, that the CommandButton moves with the cell?

## Cell As Reference Anchor To Another Sheet

Oct 28, 2009

I have a problem how to do the next:

A1 cell contains title of some test

The next cells on bottom line (B2:B10) contains the results of the this test.

On another Sheet i want to analyze those results, thus I need the results from Sheet1 be copeid to sheet2. I want just to indicate the test name (A1 location) and the rest of the cells will be copeid automatically(relative reference, relatively to A1).

## Copy Non Absolute Cell References In Conditional Formatting Formula?

Dec 3, 2012

I have this fairly simple formula which decides whether to shade a cell or not

=AND(\$X\$1<>"TBD",R3<>"None",AC3="Y")

This is set in cell R3 and I want to copy it all the way down the cells in the R column. However, when I copy & paste (and copy and paste using paste special, formatting) the R3 and AC3 cell references do not update to match their relevant rows. eg If I highlight cell R26 the conditonal formatting formula still refers to cell R3 and AC3, not R26 & AC26. I'm using Excel 2010 but I don't recall this happening in 2003.

## Formula Change To Gather The Absolute ABS Sum Instead Of The Net

Jan 17, 2010

I am using the following forumla, it gathers the net sum of a column of \$ amounts.

I need to have it changed to gather the Absolute ABS total instead.

=SUMIFS(\$B\$23:\$B\$500,\$A\$23:\$A\$500,">="&\$V23,\$A\$23:\$A\$500,"<"&EDATE(\$V23,1))

V23 has a date "Month" value.

## Copy VLookup With Absolute Formula?

Feb 2, 2012

Formula is as follows:

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(\$A\$4,Day2,2,FALSE))," ",(VLOOKUP(\$A\$4,Day2,2,FALSE)))

However I need the formula to stay the same but the DAYS to change to DAY 3, Day 4, etc as I drag it along..

## Absolute Reference Using Variables In Formula

Dec 1, 2006

I have written some VBA code that is functional, but yields a formula that is somewhat confusing to the user.

I have two string variables called TippityTop and Anchor, both of which refer to specific cell addresses in the R1C1 style.

I attempted to define other variables that reference cells that are offset from TippityTop and Anchor without using the ActiveCell route. Try as I might, I could not produce the cell addresses that I wanted these new variables to reference.

I consulted many Excel Help screens and referred to a book on Excel VBA, but I finally took another route.

I now have:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
"=IF(AND(ISNA(MATCH(RC[-2],OFFSET(" & TippityTop & ",1,-2):OFFSET(" & Anchor & ",-2,-2),0)>0),ROUND(RC[-1],2)0),""DOV not in Treasury"","""")"

The problem is that this code yields this formula in Excel:

=IF(AND(ISNA(MATCH(L587,OFFSET(\$H\$585,1,-2):OFFSET(\$H\$798,-2,-2),0)>0),ROUND(M587,2)0),"DOV not in Treasury","")

Rather than OFFSET(\$H\$585,1,-2):OFFSET(\$H\$798,-2,-2), I would like the formula to say F586:F796, so that the end user can easily understand the logic.

## Absolute Column And Absolute Row Problem

Jan 14, 2009

I have a simple count formula which is suppose to be absolute.
=COUNT(\$L5:\$V5) and works till I add a column via a macro.
Macro adds a new column at column M then inserts data.
My problem is when I check the formula after macro it changes to
=COUNT(\$M5:\$W5) I thought using the \$ sign means Don't change?

## Absolute Column And Relative Row Not Working In Formula?

Mar 15, 2014

I have a below formula which extracts the v and number attached to it I would like to copy this across all columns and change row for each column. So for example 1st column reference will be B4, the second column would have a reference B5 and so on, it's probably worth to mention that cells I am referencing to are in other sheet hence why there's Ref! before B4 is this why absolute column and relative row not working?

## Absolute \$ Or INDIRCET Not Working Inside Formula

Aug 15, 2014

For some reason Absolute \$ or INDIRECT is not working inside my formula when I add a row to my chart. Formula keeps adjusting.

Here is my formula...=IFERROR(LARGE(IF(\$B\$5:\$B\$50=\$K108,\$A\$5:\$A\$50),1),"")

\$B\$5:\$B\$50 goes to \$B\$6:\$B\$51 AND \$A\$5:\$A\$50 goes to \$A\$6:\$A\$51..... it can't do that, throws my counts out, needs to stay in this range B5:B50 and A5:A50 when I add a row to chart

Also when I use INDIRECT

=IFERROR(INDIRECT(LARGE(IF("B5:B50"=\$K108),INDIRECT("A5:A50"),1),""))))

I keep getting a error with =\$K108, which is a cell reference in my formula which the formula needs to look at

So what do I do, or what formula do I need to use to stop this from adjusting as I add rows to a chart to stop formula from adjusting?

## Update A Formula To Add An Absolute Value Of Amounts In Cells

Jan 24, 2009

I am using this formula to calculate a column of numbers that are both negative and positive numbers. =SUMPRODUCT(--(\$A\$5:\$A\$9647<=TODAY()),--(\$A\$5:\$A\$9647>TODAY()-365),\$C\$5:\$C\$9647). I need to keep this formula the same where it will calcuate on a rolling 365 day but I need the total to be only the absolute value (abs).

## Embed Formula In VBA (calculate The Absolute Week )

Dec 28, 2009

I need to calculate the absolute week and have found a formula to do so. Is there a way to embed/execute this in VBA?

TRUNC(((StartDate-DATE(YEAR(StartDate),1,0))+6)/7) where StartDate is the date which you are trying to find the corresponding week number (for example Now().

## Add Relative/Absolute Formula To Range Macro

Sep 22, 2007

using a macro im trying to paste in a sum formula, however this will be pasted onto different sheets and the number of records will be different for each so i cannot use absolute locations. the only constant is that all ranges will start in row I9. when it runs the following code

Range("G" & (ActiveCell.Row)).Select
ActiveCell = "Total"
Range("I" & (ActiveCell.Row)).Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=Sum(I8:R[-1]C)"
Range("J" & (ActiveCell.Row)).Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=Sum(J8:R[-1]C)"
Range("I:J" & (ActiveCell.Row)).Select
Selection.Copy
Range("I4:J4").PasteSpecial

it fills in =SUM('I8':I13) how can i make it insert it without the ' ' around the I9? and how can i select the two cells? (again, cannot be absolute..)

## Excel 2007 :: Converting Formula From Absolute To Relative Reference?

Aug 13, 2013

I am migrating a bookkeepping spreadsheet from Quattro v12 (c2001) to Excel 2007 and have hit a stone wall over relative 3-D references.

In this workbook each sheet holds data for one month, and this includes some lagging-12-month calculations -- that is, summing a range on a single cell for the preceding 12 sheets (including this one).

Unexpectedly, this formula:
=ISUM('201206:201305'!M6)

gives absolute references, even though I put in no dollar signs after the sheet names. This means it gives the wrong answer when copied to the next sheet to start a new month.

I can find no reference at all to converting the above formula from absolute to relative reference.

## Copy Formula With Absolute Reference & Increment Row Number Every X Cells

Mar 25, 2009

I am creating a spreadsheet which creates a bulk of data from a front sheet.

The question is:
Is there a way to automatically copy a fixed formula for 100 cells using one fixed cell reference such as \$A\$1 and then automatically after 100 cells replace \$A\$1 with \$A\$2, after another 100 with \$A\$3 and so on?

Explanation with Example:

For example, Sheet1 contains the words "Green Tree" in Cell A1 and Sheet2 will then place "Green Tree" into 100 different sentences such as:

Plant a Green Tree
Grow a Green Tree today

This would be created with the formula ="Grow a "&'Sheet1'!\$A\$1& " today"

After 100 different variations using the formula I want to change that formula to reference cell A2 on Sheet1.

I know if I place "Red Tree" in Cell A2 and use the formula ="Grow a "&'Sheet1'!\$A\$2& " today" I can do this manually using find and replace for the 100 cells, but I want to do this for 100 different variations of Green Tree to create a 10,000 different sentences so I'd need to find and replace 100 times!

Is there a way to absolute reference multiple cells at one time?

## Anchor Or Lock Object From Moving While Scrolling

Jun 12, 2007

I have assgined a group of object to run Macro's. Each object has it's own Macro. The part I am missing is that when I move through the Excel data the object should move too. The group of Object should be visible even if I work in row 1 or row 100000?

## Edit Excel Formula Links To Use Environment Variables Instead Of Static Absolute Paths

Sep 30, 2013

For example, I have a spreadsheet that imports templates which call functions in an addin. The spreadsheet, templates and the addin could be installed into either the 'Program Files' or the 'Program Files (x86)' folders.

I am experiencing issues with the formula references when moved between 32 and 64 bit computers since Excel seems to store the full path of the addin in the Excel formula (even though it hides it when the reference resolves its path) in my templates. I would like to update the references in my templates so that they use an environment variable (set by my software installer) to always know the correct path of the addin.

In Excel 2007 and higher,'Data'->'Edit Links'

## Conditionally Format Cell Using Absolute Values And Relative Cell References?

Mar 25, 2013

Below is my code which isn't formatting the cells it's suppossed to. It looks like it isn't doing anything. I think the issue might be with the highlighted section of my code, but when I go to "Manage" my rules for conditional formatting, excel references the appropriate cell under the "Applies to" section. I am using relative cell references for for the majority of the rest of the code and this section follows a section that selects the correct cell for this conditional format.

Code:
Selection.FormatConditions(Selection.FormatConditions.Count).SetFirstPriority[code].....

## Visual Basic Code - Open Local PDF At Specific Anchor From Excel?

Aug 8, 2012

I want to create a series of hyperlinks in excel to pdf's stored on a local drive/CD as a kind of database. This much I can do with a nifty bit of code I saw someone put up here as follows;

Sub Run_Local_PDF()
myFile = "C:Documents and SettingsmynameDesktoppdffilename.pdf"
Shell MyPath & " " & myFile, vbNormalFocus
End Sub

Which works great and is sitting snug in a module. However, the document I am linking to has various anchors in it which exisit as sectionheaders. One of which is "Contents".

Is there a quick way I can alter my exisitng VB code to open at one of these anchors?

## Absolute Cell Reference In A Table?

Jan 30, 2014

I know how to turn a column reference in a structured data table into an absolute reference:

=Table1[A] becomes =Table1[[A]:[A]]

However, how to make a cell reference, like this one, absolute to that it still locks on this row, column A when I drag it across. I don't want to use copy & paste, as I have other cell references that i need to leave dynamic.

=Table1[[#This Row],[A]]

I've seen that @ can lock rows, but I don't seem to be able to lock an individual cell.
