# Assign Variable To Worksheet Formulas

## Split from Copy, Cut, Fill Relative Or Absolute Formulas Originally Posted by AAE Welcome to Ozgrid.

If you "cut", rather than copy, Excel will maintain the original cell references in the formula. Both of these questions are well within the experience level of a user with above average skill level as your profile shows. Please lower it (before one of the Admins does it for you) to a more realistic level. See this training page on how to toggle between relative/absolute cell references: [url] Well cutting is a nifty trick, thank you for that, I don't believe you quite understood my first question. Lets use my calculator for instance. Using something it has designated K (for no apparent reason) I can enter a formula, such as K=*2-4, and after that is entered every number I then type and press equals to it will run that formula and spit out an answer. (after entering that function, if I press "5" "equals" it will give me "6") Now what I'm wondering is if excel has a "K" function that I can assign to certain cells, namely a column, so that whenever a figure is typed in any of the cells in that column, the required operation is done, namely *.9685.

Open Workbook And Assign To Variable
Back to coding in VBA after long months of Matlab, and banging my head around this simple code snippet:

This returns a nasty error "Activex Component couldn't create object". It opens the file given by FilePath though. What I would like is to assign the open workbook to the myWbk variable, such that it is easier to work with.

Assign Variable To Different Data Types
Putting the final touches on a project I have and the last element doesn't work 100%. the scenario: I have a function that I wrote based on the user's input of the desired column to perform the operation. As a method of error-trapping and ease of use, I set instructions for the code to activate:

2) enters the letter of the column (up to "z", not case sensitive)
3) enters the number of the column

Assign Specific Cell Value Of Worksheet To A Label
I am struggling with working with specific cells from specific sheets. e.g.

I want to make a label display teh value of a specific cell.

(i is the row number of the cell i'm interested in)

'now make labellaptime.caption = the cell (i-1, 3) of sheet1(jules)

'LabelLaptime.Caption = i - 1 'works no problem
'LabelLaptime.Caption = Application.Worksheets(Sheet1).Cells(i, 3) 'laptime
'LabelLaptime.Caption = Application.Worksheets(1).Range("i-1,3").Value
'LabelLaptime.Caption = Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(
'LabelLaptime.Caption = Range("c3") 'works no problem
'LabelLaptime.Caption = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets.("sheet1").range("c1").value

I've based all this on the book i'm trying to learn from but it doesn't work and (obviously) i don't know why...

(plus any links to info on how to work with specific cells on specific sheets e.g making a variable = to the value of a cell(x,x) of sheet 3)

Code To Assign Predefined Number In Separate Worksheet
Excel 2003: I need code that, when an "x" is entered in a cell in the "Activity" worksheet to assign a temporary unit #, it will look for the next available Temporary Unit # in the "Assign" worksheet. Then mark that unit # as "assigned" (by placing an "X" in the column next to it) and copy it to a cell in the "Activity" sheet.

I will be doing the same thing with assigning different types of PO numbers. I figure if I have the code for the Unit #, I can use the same logic for the other assignments, with some modifications, of course.

I've attached a sample workbook.

If I am not considering the most effective way to accomplish what I am trying to do here, I have no ego at all about someone suggesting a better solution.

Automatically Assign Predefined Unit # In Separate Worksheet
I have a worksheet that logs equipment activities. Equipment may already have a standard unit # assigned to it or it may need a temporary unit # assigned for tracking. In a separate worksheet is a column of predefined temp unit #'s that can be assigned and next it is a column to place an "X" once a unit # has been assigned.

I need to write logic that, when an "X" is entered in Column F (Assign a Unit #) of the Activities worksheet, the Unit # (Column G) will automatically select the next available Temp Unit # in the Assign worksheet...and mark that Unit # as no longer available. Quite frankly, this may be more easily done with VBA, but I am not experienced in that at all. I have attached a sample worksheet showing the format of the unit # to be assigned, etc.

Create Button & Assign Macro When Worksheet Added
Is there a VBA code that will enable me to create a button and assign a certain macro to it everytime I insert a new worksheet?

Using Vba Variable In Formulas
I am trying to write a macro that will cut the text in a given cell to 16 characters. My code works as long as the text is always in the same cell, but I eventially want to ask the user what cell to use. So I want to replace the “RC[-25]” with my WorkCell variable. I can’t seem to figure out how to put it in there.

Sub test()
Dim SizeOfRange As Integer
Dim WorkCell As String
SizeOfRange = 10
WorkCell = A1
For x = 1 To SizeOfRange
Range("z" & x).Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=LEFT(RC[-25],16)"
Next x
End Sub

Variable Usage Inside Formulas

Count & Summing Formulas Containing More Than One Variable
I am trying to create a formula that will count the number of entries that contain either a name of 'A', 'B' or 'C' and fall within a set date parameter.

Variable Cell Ranges In Formulas
I need to run a formula each month which calculates the ‘product’ for a range of cells in a column, where the cell range will change each month. The starting cell for the range is static, but the range end will always change - additionally, the last valid cell will always be followed by a null value cell. The attached example shows the basic format of my data – a range of values, by row, which will always end with a null value cell. The formula I’m using (to match my example) is: =(PRODUCT(A10:A13) –-> and I want to display the result in cell C10.

While I’ve been able to identify the ‘ending good row’ several ways, I haven’t been able to figure out what to do with this information – I seem be be lost in the translation of OFFSET values to CELL REFERENCE values. Has anyone encountered this specific scenario and found a solution?

Variable Amount For Global Functions/Formulas
How can one change the cell values of a worksheet by creating a setup page in another worksheet.

On the setup page or worksheet I want o change value of *0.6 to say *0.5 for all the cell that has this value. In other words form the setup all the values will change on the related worksheet from the setup page.

Assign Userform Name To Variable For Use On Another Userform
In order to deal with the multitude of screen resolutions that can be found at our work, I have got a module to check the current screen resolution on loading the workbook. I then have set up 3 different sized userforms, all containing the same coding, and based on the displayed screen resolution one of these is open (the userforms are named Customer1, Customer2, Customer3).

The displayed userform then has a button to show another userform (Customer_Details), and this form requires some referencing back to the previous form for some of it's information eg,

customer_details.textbox1.text = customer(1, 2 or 3).textbox1.text
customerdetails.combobox1.list = customer(1, 2 or 3).combobox.list

way for me reference the specific "Customer" form that has been opened, without calling it by name?

Conditional Formulas-to Get A Spreadsheet To Automate Calculations Of Unit Costs Based On Variable Packaging Names
I am looking for a way to get a spreadsheet to automate calculations of unit costs based on variable packaging names.

I have a series of packages that are denoted by text phrases. Examples:

4/6/12
2/12/12
6/4/12
18/12
24/12

For our purposes let's say the package names above will always be in column A. Column B contains the frontline price of a case of product represented by the phrase in column A. Column C will contain the cost per unit of product - this is obtained by dividing column B by the number of each package arrangement that can be found in one case. Most of the time the number of package arrangements per case is denoted by the very first number in the package name (ie, 4/6/12 would be 4). This won't always be the case though (18/12 would be a package arrangement of 1).

I am looking for a way for the spreadsheet to do all of the following and return the results in column C: if the package name contains "4/6/12", divide column B by 4; if the package name contains "2/12/12", divide column B by 2; if the package name contains "6/4/12" divide column B by 6; if the package name contains "18/12", divide column B by 1; if the package name contains "24/12" divide column B by 24.

Copy Worksheet To New - No Formulas
starting to dabble in the VBA coding, now. I tried finding this solution...but nothing quite the same. I have a spreadsheet with a couple tabs. The main tab is a calculation worksheet that pulls in, and performs various calculations on, data from the other couple tabs. This main tab will be the only one that most of my users will see (query and other data tabs will be hidden.)

What this workbook does is calculate accruals for our consultants, at the end of every month (period.) I am trying to put in code that, when activated by a button, will copy the entire main ("Accrual Worksheet") tab as a new tab, at the end of the workbook....as a period backup to the calculations on the main tab.

I created the below
===========================================================
Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
Dim LastSheet As Integer
Dim aSht As Worksheet
Dim Test4 As String
Dim NameXists As Long

If MsgBox("Are You Sure You Wish to Finalize? This will copy sheet, without formulas, as backup.", vbYesNo, "Update Confirm") = vbNo Then
Exit Sub
Else

=============================================================

This seems to work great......EXCEPT (you knew one was coming), I only really want to copy the sheet as data/format only. I don't want the copy tab to have any VBA code, or formulas, on it. I just want a picture image of the "Accrual Worksheet", as reference to the activity for that period. In the following period, the same "Accrual Worksheet" will be used to work on the next month's activities.....and the data on that tab will change. So we need to store the final calculation, for further reference.

Deleting Worksheet Causes #REF! In Formulas
I have a macro that imports a text file. I then have summary sheets that reference to the sheets with the imported text file details. This is a task I complete every month.

The next month I delete the sheets with the imported text file details before importing current month's details. But when I do that it screws up my references.

Here's an example of a reference with previous months' imported text file details:

= SUM('X'!\$I\$1:\$I\$3000)/2+SUM('Y'!\$I\$1:\$I\$3000)/2

When I delete the sheets with the imported text file details and import current month's details, my reference suddenly looks like this:

=SUM(#REF!\$I\$1:\$I\$3000)/2+SUM(#REF!\$I\$1:\$I\$3000)/2

What can I do to prevent the summary sheet from messing up my original references?

Clone Worksheet Without Formulas
I have a workbook with multiple sheets that contain formulas that I would like to copy to another workbook or new workbook with the same sheet names but without the formulas.

Insert Worksheet With Formulas
I have a workbook with a worksheet called Summary that has formulas that refer to other worksheets (say A, B, and C) in the same workbook.

What I want to do (with VBA because I have to do this many times) is copy this Summary worksheet into several other workbooks, all of which also have their corresponding worksheets A, B, and C.

I do *not* want the copied Summary worksheet's formulas to refer to the old workbook. If I copy the worksheet by hand, this is what happens.

Instead I want the copied worksheet's formulas to reference the worksheets of the workbook they are now in.

Entering Duplicate Formulas From Different Worksheet
Basically I have a template from two different worksheets and I am making one sheet the "master sheet" and the other sheet is filled in automatically from the master sheet. I understand how to get this basic function to work so here is my real problem...

I would like my sheet to look like this repeated 2000 times...

'sheet1'A16
'sheet1'A16
'sheet1'A17
'sheet1'A17
etc.

Every time I try to drag the formulas down to go 2000 rows it starts doing this...

'sheet1'A16
'sheet1'A17
'sheet1'A18
'sheet1'A19
etc.

How do I get this formula to repeat like I have shown in my desired example?

Macros & Formulas Paste Into A Worksheet

Worksheet Link Search And Fill Formulas
I want to create a spreadsheet table of values that are linked other spreadsheets, a condesnsed version... I am not a total amateur and I understand the world of excel links....

However the problem lies in the fact that the source files change format every day, what i need is a formula for each cell (i know...) that can:

1. Firstly find column and row heading titles by looking for part of the title i.e. for a title like 'Occupation' i need a non case sensitive search for 'Occu'.

2. Once colum and row are found, return the intesecting value.

The formulas are needed so all I will have to do, after this is finished, is update the source files and the relevant numbers will be found automatically.

Im sure this is something that can be done with a clever array formula, setup to recognise column and row intersections based on positve returns on search variables, however this one is just outside my capabilities....

SUMPRODUCT Formulas Slowing Worksheet Significantly
I have had a workbook that I have been using to track inventory. I use a userform to enter the data for inventory in and out of the system. I recently added two more worksheets to the workbook, each of which has several SUMPRODUCT formulas on them that reference the inventory data.

Since adding these two sheets, when entering data via the userform, it takes a long time (relatively speaking) for the sheet to update with the relevant new data. I have attached a copy of the file, in hopes that someone can show me exactly what is causing the slow-down, and if there is a way that I can get the same results using different programming or formulas that will not be so slow.

The part that is slow is on the "Data" sheet. Click on the green or orange buttons to open the userform. Make a selection in each section, and enter an amount. Clicking on "Enter" will transfer the appropriate information to the worksheet. This is the part that is slow.

Use Of Worksheet Variable

The following code is successful at getting the value of the text in textbox txtDCN.

End Sub

The following code gives compile error "Method or data member not found" on the last line of code. I've searched around a bit all over the web but cannot find any examples of this same error. It's obvious that the compiler cannot figure out the reference to the text box but I cannot figure out why for the life of me.

Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim text As String
Set ws = Worksheets("Master Table")
text = ws.txtDCN.Value

Copy Variable Range & Copy Formulas From Destination
I tried searching for code for each part of the task separately and trying to piece together multiple macros, that did something similar, but I’m not have a lot of luck, so I’ll break it down into two treads, I hope this will follow the rule of one question per post, but if I should have separated this request even farther as two treads, please let me know and I’ll be happy to comply.

I was given a spread sheet with a macro that loads data from a SQL Data base (not mine), it returns anywhere from one row to 100’s of rows data. Since it’s not my spread sheet and macro, I copied this sheet to my destination workbook. The Data loads in 7 columns starting in B4:H4, with the column headings titles: Acct#, Id#, Name, Qtr1 Totals, Qtr2 Totals, Qtr3 Totals, and Qtr4 Totals. Data cells in spreadsheet not formatted (general)

What I’m trying to do:
part 1:
I need a macro to copy the data only for columns Id# thru Qtr4 Totals (C5:H5 down thru the last row with data) to another sheet. The destination sheet range starts with rows B13:G13, with formulas below and to the right in columns H13, and J13:N13
(column I is blank).

The formulas below the range are a subtotal of the copied columns (D:G). They could be remove and totaled after they’re copied, so there's nothing below the copied range? Since I need the column totals as a subtotals, my thought was to have the row heading and formulas already on the destinations sheet and just insert a blank rows between as each row was copied?

part 2:
As each row of data is copied from the source sheet, I need the macro to copy the formulas to the right of the copied range (H13, and J13:N13) on the destination sheet down for each new row of data copied from the source sheet

Using Variable Cell Value As Worksheet Name
I have a macro on a button click that copies and pastes the template worksheet into the same workbook on a dialy basis, i would like to rename the "template" copied file to a unique worksheet name based on a date ie 31_3 (31st march) and so on, the cell that provides the date changes on a daily basis to the next one, however when the script runs it uses the original macro recording date rather than the new one!, the changable cell is AS2.

Replacing Worksheet;with Variable Name
I'm replacing a specific sheet on a workbook with another one, but I want the users to be able to browse to a file, replace the sheet with the new one and re-establish the links on the replaced sheet with the target workbook. This macro is running out of the workbook that supplies the replacement sheet. The idea is that the user opens this workbook, runs the macro, browses to the file they need to fix and hey presto! I'm doing something stupid with my variable name, I'm sure it's syntax but I don't know what I'm doing wrong. The code is posted below.

Sub Macro1()
Dim ToBeFixed
ToBeFixed = Application.GetOpenFilename
Workbooks.Open (ToBeFixed)
Sheets("!").Visible = True
Sheets("!").Select
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Delete.....................

Set Variable To Worksheet In Another Workbook
In conjuction with a previous request I've tried to create my own vba code (actually amend existing code i have) but its failing........ whats wrong??

Sub Retail_1_Xfer()
Dim NextRow As Long, Isht As Worksheet, Lsht As Worksheet
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Set Isht = Worksheets("Retail Team 1")
Set Lsht = Worksheets("Raw Data")
NextRow = Lsht. Cells(Rows.Count, 2).End(xlUp).Row + 1 'next empty row in col A
Lsht.Range("A" & NextRow).Value = Isht.Range("A9").Value
Lsht.Range("B" & NextRow).Value = Isht.Range("A4").Value
Lsht.Range("C" & NextRow).Value = Isht.Range("B9").Value
Lsht.Range("D" & NextRow).Value = Isht.Range("N3").Value
Lsht.Range("E" & NextRow).Value = Isht.Range("N2").Value
Lsht.Range("F" & NextRow).Value = Isht.Range("BJ9").Value
End Sub

I think its got something to do with the fact that the worksheet " Retail Team 1 " is in another workbook

Due DateInvDocument numberDebitCreditBalance

The above is a part of a w/sheet. Rather than determining the last row in the debit column and credit column (to know which is greater) and use a loop to put a formula in each of the cells in the balance column (adding the debit and credit), I know I can use the with ... statement to input the formula at a go , but cannot figure it out.

Variable To Refer To A Worksheet.CodeName
This is a simplified version of an earlier, long winded post that clouded my actual question.
Can I use a variable to refer to a worksheet by its CodeName? For example, let's assume I have several worksheets, with CodeNames of mySheet1, mySheet2, mySheet3, and so on. I understand that I can refer to them directly,

mySheet1.Range(myRangeName).value = someValue
mySheet2.Range(myRangeName).value = someValue
mySheet3.Range(myRangeName).value = someValue
.
but what if I want to do this using a loop? Is it possible to preload an array of CodeNames and do it that way? I'm thinking along the lines of something like...

Dim CodeNames
CodeNames = Array( mySheet1, mySheet2, mySheet3 ...)

For x = 1 to HoweverMany
CodeNames(x).Range(myRangeName).value = someValue
Next x

Linking Data When One Variable Changes In Src Worksheet
I'm using MS Excel 2003 Pro. I need to link data from one source worksheet to a target worksheet in the same workbook when only one variable changes in the source worksheet e.g.:

A. From source worksheet:

When the data under the "Expected Date" column is set (it normally is blank)

B. Populate target worksheet with:

1. Name
2.aaaa
3.bbbb
4.cccc
5.dddd
6. expected date (the actual date that is set from the source worksheet)

A Variable Which Is Used By Several Subs In A Worksheet But Is Not Global?
I am working on a workbook which uses a large number of variables. I am trying to keep them as "local" as possible to keep it simple. Some of my variables are local to the subs they're used in. Some are global as they're used by subs in several sheets. A third type of variable is used by several subs all belonging to the same sheet. Is there a way of declaring them so they're known by all subs in that sheet, but not by every sub in the workbook?

Converting A String To A Worksheet Variable
I have a userform that reads in a list of names into a combobox. When you choose a name from the combobox it then shows the that persons details from a sheet containing all the names.

I have some text boxes that allows the data to be modified and returns it to the sheet which works fine. What i also want it to do it put the data from the form into a sheet for that individual. For example the name of Ford would go into the Ford worksheet.

How do i read in the value from the combobox on the worksheet and use it as a variable to use in my code. For example

Sheets(Value from the combobox).Cells(NoOfRows, 3).Value = Me.TextBoxChangePosistion.Value

*NoOfROws is the variable to find a blank row

Run-Time Error Setting Worksheet Variable
The user is asked for one piece of information "Enter the ID Number.

What the macro should do then is go to Wks1 find the ID Number and change some cells as a result. This bit works.

Set Wks2 = Worksheets(strWks)

7 rows from the bottom.

My intention was to capture the the name of another worksheet which is held on the same row as the ID Number on Wks1 and call it strWks.

Then further down the macro set the value of Wks2 to that of strWks so that the macro will then go to that sheet and remove data from the row with the same ID Number.

I get a Time Run Error 9.

It just seems to be the bit at the bottom where I am trying to identify Wks2 using strWks.

Check Worksheet Exist, If Not Add Variable Sheet Name
I need to allow users to add up to seven new worksheets as required and the new sheets must be named Image1, Image2, etc. I do not want to add seven worksheets at once, only one at a time as the need arises and no new ws can be allowed after Image7 ws is added.

I have a macro to test for the existence of ws Image1, but need help on further development to add and test for the extence of the remaining sheets.

Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim bTest As Boolean
For Each ws In Worksheets
If ws.Name = "Image1" Then
bTest = True
Exit For
End If
Next ws

If bTest = True Then
'Need some code here, not sure what I need

Worksheet Change Event :: Trying To Set The IntRMACol Variable
This is the code on the Worsheet Change event.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

'Define the RMAs range and count the RMA ships. Do the rest of the math based on this calculation.
Dim intRMACol As Integer, EndRow As Integer, intRMAShips As Integer, LastCol As Integer
Dim rngRMAs As Range, rngHome As Range, sht As Worksheet
Set sht = ActiveWorkbook.ActiveSheet
Set rngHome = Cells(1, 1)
rngHome.Activate
EndRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
intRMACol = Cells.Find(What:="RMA#", After:=[A1], SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlNext).Column
Set rngRMAs = rngHome.Offset(1, intRMACol - 1).Resize(EndRow, 1)
rngRMAs.Name = "RMAs"
rngHome.Offset(1, LastCol + 1).Formula = "=COUNTA(RMAs)"
intRMAShips = rngHome.Offset(1, LastCol + 1).Value
rngHome.Offset(1, LastCol).Formula = "=SUM((" & EndRow & " - 1) - " & intRMAShips & ")"
rngHome.Offset(1, LastCol + 2).FormulaR1C1 = "=SUM(RC[-2] : RC[-1])"
End Sub

I keep getting stuck when trying to set the intRMACol variable. I have used the code all over the place, but only in Modules, never on a worksheet event. EndRow, the variable right above, sets correctly so I don't get it.

Also, do I have to define the Target variable? Am I going about this the right way? I basically want three formulas to calculate when any change is made on the worksheet.

Error Settting Variable To Range On Another Worksheet
I am trying to run a script from a command button on another sheet in the same workbook. all the variables have been defined. I get a "select method of range class failed" message when I run the code. I believe that i am not getting "closed trades" to be the active worksheet.

excerpt of code

'Clear out existing data
iRow = 2
wks.Activate

lrow = Cells(65536, 1).End(xlUp).Row
Set Rng = wks.Range(Cells(iRow, 1), Cells(lrow, 17)) ' this row errors out
Rng.Clear
Set Rng = Nothing

Unhide Sheets/Worksheet With Variable CodeNames
I want to make a hidden sheet visible. Except that i want to use the name of the sheet (the thing that stays the same even when you change the sheet tab name). I also want to select the name based on a variable called Year which the user adds elsewhere (eg as 2006).

wf = "WF_Edin_" + Year 'So for 2006 this would read WF_Edin_2008
wf.Visible = True

The above doesnt work as wf becomes a string which i dont think i want do i?
