# Auto Predicting Formulas

Apr 3, 2007

Say there are 3 cols ( A,B & C ) whereby C sums B and A. I have a situation here where C does not show (=SUM(A10:B10)) on the formula bar. I can type anything in C and the formula remains. I've even tried deleting the contents of C. It's like the formula is only activated when values are entered into A and B. Could excel be auto-predicting the formulas as a trend? I would like to repeat this for my other workbooks but I could not find a way to repeat this fluke.

## Predicting Sales Data

Jan 10, 2009

I have data for average turnover per hour of a business and have fitted it to a polynomial (order 6) trendline. So I have for example, running along the x-axis i have 8am-9am, 9am-10am, 10am-11am etc and on the y-axis the average turnover for the relevant hour.

What I would like to be able to do is use the trendline's formula to be able to predict sales for any given day. So if I were to enter the first few hours of turnover on any given day, I would like excel to predict the rest of the day's turnover based on the trendline.

## Predicting Sales Data In Future

Jul 28, 2009

I need to predict sales data in future using multiple independent varaibles.I used FORECAST function to predict sales value for single independent varaiables.But i dont know how to predict sales using multiple varaiables.

## Predicting From Large Collection Of Data

Dec 15, 2007

I will try to keep this as short as possible. I have a huge amount of stringed data from dry kiln runs all well organized. I want to make something that will look at all this data (or at lease the ones that I specify) and give me a prediction of what would happen if I was to make a change somewhere in the schedule. I have alot more info if needed.

## Auto Fill Formulas

May 20, 2008

ColA-ColB
A1 - B1
A2 - B2

Let's say B1 has a formula- =A1
b2 has formula = =A2

I want to copy all the formula in ColB
As it goes down in Column B, it should be =A2 at 2nd row, =A3 at 3rd row, =A4 at 4th row.

Reason being I want this formula to activate when the cell in Column A is filled. If the cell in Col A is empty, The formula in Col B should be blank!

Example:

ColA-ColB
13/01- Jan
13/12- Dec
29/06- June
30/07- July

## Using Auto Complete Handle (+) With Formulas

Apr 24, 2009

I have the following formula in a cell C6 : "='Data Dump'!G20". I want the adjacent cell on the right (C7) to be "='Data Dump'!G21" and C8 to be "='Data Dump'!G22" and on and on. I'm trying to use the Auto complete handle on the bottom right hand corner of the cell (which looks like a + when the cursor is over it) to drag the formula so that the "Data Dump - G" values increase as I go (g21, g22, g23 and onwards). However, rather than the numerical part of the cell incrementing, the character (letter) does so instead, so I get H20, I20, J20 and onwards.

## Paste Formulas Without Auto Filling

Sep 28, 2009

Is it possible to disable the auto filling, when copy/pasting formulas?

I have a range of formulas, which I want to copy/paste, and I want the pasted formulas to be the exact same as the copied.

Is this possible? I would prefer not having to use \$ on all formulas.

## Auto Sort Table With Formulas?

Mar 16, 2014

I have a adjusting table which auto sorts based on the latest weeks results.

If one of the results is an N/A (There is no data for the site that week, the table will auto sort this value to the top. How do i get it to move any errors to the button of the table?

I've attached a sample worksheet : Table example.xlsm‎

## Add Multiple Formulas In Row & Auto Fill Down

Mar 15, 2008

I am trying to do can�t really be recorded, at least i don�t think it can. I have a report that I run off and after I loaded it in Excel I then have to add in five columns at the end of the sheet. These are always in the same columns: R,S,T,U,V.

These are the formulas I have to then input
R =IF(G2="no invoices",A2,"")
S=IF(I2="Match",A2,"")
T=IF(I2="Sent to AP",A2,"")
U=IF(I2="Force Settled",A2,"")
V=IF( COUNTIF(\$R\$2:\$U\$10054,A2),A2,0)

Note for column V, the range R2:U10054 would depend on how many rows is in the report, its just in this example the report does have 10054 rows. The columns would always stay the same. I would then copy the formulae down for the number of rows that is in the report and filter column V by entries that equal zero to give me the rows I am looking to analyse. Is this the type of thing that can be written as a macro so that everytime I have a new report open in Excel I can just run the macro and it will do all of this for me?

## Copy Formulas Or Using The Auto Fill Need To Have The Count Inc By 5 Instead Of 1

Apr 17, 2009

I have the following formula:

=AVERAGE('sheet 2'!C7,'sheet 2'!D7:Z7)+AVERAGE('sheet 2'!C9,'sheet 2'!D9:Z9). When I copy it down to the next cell the valules need to increase to 12 & 14 respectively.

## Auto Copying Column Formulas To New Rows

Feb 14, 2014

I'm working on a spreadsheet that tracks project accepted and done over a course of time. I am expecting the data to eventually reach the thousands in a year's time. I have several formulas in specific columns that I need to replicate as the user enters new data into the next row.

While it is easy to copy paste the formulas from the cells above, we are looking to save time by having the sheet do this automatically which also prevents the user from accidentally deleting/modifying the said formulas. I am also looking to save file size which is why I am considering doing this in VB. An example of a formula that I need to move down into the next column is:

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(C2,Tables!A:B,2,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(C2,Tables!A:B,2,FALSE))

I am new to VB but would like to gain some understanding on how this works.

## How To Auto-move Players In Cup Tree Using Formulas

Aug 31, 2012

I am trying to build a cup tree that automaticly move players over to the next round if they are first or second in
their group of 4. What happens when first person have a result of lets say 33 and 2nd and 3d person have a result of 35 each and the 4th person 37? First person is easy but then there are 2 persons with the sam result and they play sudden death and we put in a 1 in the sd column for the winner and a 2 for the loser of the sudden death.

How do I make my formula figure that if they had the same result go look at the sd column?

Another thing is that of the 2 players advancing they have to be placed in the same order in next round, how can I achieve that?

If you look in column I row 19-22 there are players in the wrong order because the player with the better result goes in first. It should be this order: 9 11 15 16 instead. (if you are ahead in the previous round you will be ahead in the next round)

Another problem I noticed now is that when 2 players has the same lowest score the first player takes both spots as it is now and that doesn't work in real. You see what I mean if you look at player 1 in round 1 and 2 (R1 & R2), in this case it should have been players 1 2 6 and 7 moving on to round 2 and not 1 1 6 7 as it is at the moment.

(Rank is their rank from the qulification rounds where the first 4 is seeded and the rest is drawn into 1 group a time)

## Using Cell References In File Paths For Formulas To Create Dynamic Formulas

Dec 3, 2013

I am using a lot of linked reports that have to be rewritten each month. For example smaller formulas look like this:

=('S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B\$228*2)+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B\$262+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B\$292

What I want to do is extract the file path from the above formula and make it a composite of several cell references.

So what I need is to have a cell where they can change the month and another where we can change the year. So I set up several named cells that look like this:

_MONTH =11 November
_YEAR =2013
_JOBCARD ='S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING
_PATH =_JOBCARD & _YEAR &"" &_MONTH

I tried several versions, I am hoping for something like this:

=('_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B\$228*2)+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B\$262+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B\$292

## Converting Formulas To Relative/absolute References With Formulas Referencing Other Sheets

I've found a few macros that will automate changing cell references from absolute to relative and they work great. However, when I run the macros on formulas that have references to another worksheet or workbook, the macro will not work correctly.

## Formulas To Hide Partial Concatenate Data And Determining Two Other Formulas

Dec 11, 2013

I'm trying to automate creating certain keyword combinations I need, based off of the values I input into reference cells in columns A - E; the goal is to compile a list of keywords which I will then use to track my rankings in search engines.

I'm looking to only output 500 keywords, so some of the cells in columns A, B, C & E will not contain data (column D will always have a primary Geo-target listed). This results in some of the concatenate formulas I've created outputting partial data (i.e. if there is no data in cell A10, and cell D2 contains the word "Knoxville", then cell I10 will output the data, "Knoxville "). How can I setup conditioning formatting or a formula so that these auto-generated cells appear blank if one of the reference cells has no data within it?The reason why I need the above to work is because I want to setup a formula that automatically counts the # of keyword combinations created by the data entered into any of the reference cells. With the partial combinations being listed, it skews my data. Which leads me to my next question: what is the best formula for counting the # of cells containing a full keyword combination from any of the cells listed in columns G - O (minus the data in the header cells; i.e. G1, H1, etc...)?Lastly, is there a formula I could use that would then aggregate all of the full keyword combinations within the "Complete Keyword List" column (column P)?

## Excel 2007 :: Formulas In Cells Not Being Recognized As Formulas?

Jan 10, 2013

I am running Excel 2007 on Windows Vista Business 32 bit. Recently I have noticed that if I enter a formula into an empty, unsused cell, it is recognized as a formula. If I modify that formula, it is then recognized as text and does not work as a formula. The only way I can get the cell to recognize a formula is to delete the cell and start over. This same scenario does not occur on previously stored workbooks. I have checked all of the flags that I know about, including the Options function.

## Paste Formulas As Values (strip Out Unwanted Formulas)

May 13, 2008

I have a macro running this code to strip out unwanted formulas and formatting.

'No End If required as only one action as a result of the If

Range("Item_Nos").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).EntireRow.Delete
Columns("A:E") = Columns("A:E").Value .........................

A spreadsheet based on my template has been sent to me because the macro won't run properly. When I try to run the macro I get a Runtime Error '1004' Method 'Range' of object '_Global' failed on the following line. Columns("A:E") = Columns("A:E").Value.

## Auto Size Cells On Visible Columns Not Auto-sizing Correctly?

May 27, 2014

I have the following code:

[Code] ....

When I run the macro, some columns are already hidden. The macro doesn't seem to autosize cells correctly. For instance, one cell in a row appears to have some contents hidden (or below the reading area of the cell). In other instances, the rows are auto-size to huge heights and widths.

## Get (tabs) Of Action Log To Auto-populate And Auto-delete In Master Log

## Air Force Mission Tracker-Auto Counting & Auto Copying

Jun 19, 2009

Making a mission tracker that requires less upkeep than my units previous methods. I am using Excel 2007 and have some things in mind that I would like it to do.
On the down side, I have only basic experience with excel and have never used macros or VBA.
Even if what I am after could be solved with functions (which I prefer), I simply do not quite know how to make what I want without assistance. Ok, now on to the description.

The mission tracker aside from showing a list of the missions we have done during our program, it needs to also generate metrics automatically. In my worksheet, I am using columns A-G and rows 1-501.

The mission scheduling type in Column E are listed below. The letters on the left are what I am using in the sheet, the part to the right is what it really means:

Column D has the day of the week listed as: Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sun.

now the metrics I need to be generated are the number of different types of each mission compared, how many of each type of mission was flown per day of the week, how many of each type of mission was flown per month.

Basically what I need is a way to automatically count the number of rows that meet a specific criteria throughout the range. This would require being able to check the value/text of multiple cells at a time and count the number of rows that meet that criteria.

[SOLVED] 1. The first part would be to have the worksheet be able to count the number of each type of the 9 mission scheduling codes throughout the range. I would be storing the count in new cells that would then be connected to pie charts.

[SOLVED] 2. The second part would be to count the number of each type of mission that was flown per day of the week. That would require searching both mission type and day of the week. All I would need is a working formula for 1 set, then I could switch mission codes and weekdays to match all the 63 possible outcomes.

3. Knowing the number of each type of mission flown per month. This would be checking the date and the mission type. The trickier part that comes up in my mind is that our programs span multiple calendar years, so it would have to track it by month and year, that way there is a difference between Jan 2009 and Jan 2010. The counted numbers would be used to make histograms. It would be nice if the chart titles could be automatic based on the dates inputed in the mission tracker. If I needed to choose a maximum time length for it to cover, I would pick 3 years.

4. I would like to figure out how to make an inputted line of data on the main tracker sheet to create a copy in the corresponding worksheets based on schedule type, that way a person could look at/print a specific type without having to sort the main list.

The actual goal is to make it where a person can enter the 1 line of data per mission (cells A-G) and the mission metrics update automatically after each mission is inputed allowing upper level supervision to have current information quickly whenever it is needed. Currently we need about a weeks lead time to get the information asked for on our current progress.

## Auto Complete And Auto Delete With Data Validation

Jan 7, 2008

Within a data validation selection, are you able to do both Auto Complete and Auto Delete? I have this posted at another forum [url]but have not been able to find a solution (a copy of the file, test. zip is there as well). I am not sure it is possible, or, at least I have been unable to get it working. I can do each, but not both.

## Using Two IF Formulas (3 Or More To Count If Other IF Formulas Are Actually Returning A Value)

Aug 24, 2009

I have a spreadhseet with various functions on it and what I am trying to do is this.

Cell E4 returns a >35 or <35 true or false value
Cell G4 is either blank or has "Yes" text type into it.

What I am trying to do is get cell F4 to return certain arguments.

E4 = >35 and G4 is blank I want it to state "Email Hiring Manager"
E4 = ,35 and G4 is blank I want it to state "Wait"

I have a basic IF formula that returns this
=IF(E4>35,"Email Hiring Manager","Wait")

Then if cell G4 is populated with a Yes the formula needs to overwirte the origonal if with the return arguments of
=IF(G4="Yes","Email Agency","Email Hiring Manager")

If yes then what would be Email Hiring Manager (yes will only be input if E4 is greater than 35) will be overwritten with "Email Agency"

Can this be done with two If formulas or does there need to be 3 or more to count if other IF formulas are actually returning a value?

## Convert Formulas In Text Into Formulas

Dec 12, 2007

## Can Auto-hide Rows Or Auto-set Row Height

Jun 27, 2014

I have one worksheet that contains a large table. I'm using VLOOKUP to spread each row of the table to separate worksheets.

When VLOOKUP refers to an empty cell, is there a way to set that row to be hidden?

Also, if VLOOKUP returns data to a cell, is there a way for Excel to automatically set the row height to display all of the linked data in that cell?
