# Autofill Formula To The Left (fill To The Left)

Feb 5, 2009
I am having trouble filling a formulae series to the left on one spreadsheet, the fomulae being references to another sheet.

For example, I have two sheets 'Mtce Options' and 'Base Case'. In 'Mtce Options' I have the following formulae

A B C

1='Base Case'!A15='Base Case'!D15='Base Case'!G15

I want to fill to the left, incrementing the column references by a factor of 2 each time, eg. next two should be ='Base Case'!J15 and ='Base Case'!M15.

However, if I autofill to the left by highlighting A1, B1 and C1 or just B1 and C1 all I get is an inappropriate reference such as ='Base Case'!D15 or ='Base Case'!F15, respectively, in D15.

I have a 2010 excel sheet containing 14 columns and 45082 rows in total. I am quite illiterate when it comes to writing macros but I know that what I need can be achieved with a set of codes.

To be more clear, I inserted two tables below. The first one represents the current data structure, and the second one is the way I want my data to look like.

Current data structure looks like

Variable 1

Variable 2

Variable 3

[Code].....

I have a macro that creates mutiple, though varing numbers of, columns. Once the columns are created, a blank column is set up to the right of them. When the data is ideal, only one cell in each row created by the populated columns will have data in it. So lets say that in this example, the macro created 23 columns of data. A1 is blank, B1 is Widget, and C1 through the end are also blank. I need a macro that will look at the rows and find the populated column and copy that string of data to the blank 24th column (to the right) created after the poulated columns. So X1 (the 24th column) will have Widget placed in it.

Now I need it to do one other thing. In another example, let say there are 5 columns created this time. In the third row, there is data in A3 and D3. If they are the equal to each other (A3 value being 143256 and D3 value being 143256), then I need the 6th column created to have 143256 placed in it. However, if the data differs ( A3 value being 143255 and D3 value being 143288) then I need the word "Scrap" to appear in the sixth column.

so say the string is 111.111.1.222

column 1

111.111.1

column 2

222

my current code (which works, but its messy) for the first cell is

i know the forumla, using left and find to get the value of a cell to the left of the first space. (i.e if the cell said [url] click here then im looking for just [url]

however, when I try and use this in vba I cant get it to "find".

im trying to get the value of a textbox, before the first space

I have columns A and B, and want to add values in column B based on corresponding criteria in column A. The criteria is if the first two characters in the string in column A = 15.

The only way I can think to do this is with LEFT, but LEFT asks for a specific string, and I want to evaluate each cell in a column. So I could write

=sumif(A:A,"LEFT(A:A, 2)=15",B:B)

but of course that doesn't work.

I am using the below formula to find the latest date (column N) based on fund (column G) and Vendor (column O) reference. How can I find (column I) where the balance of that payment is? I know there are formulas like INDIRECT RC[-1] but how to add them to my formula.

{=MAX(IF(Payments!G:G=B4,IF(Payments!O:O=C4,Payments!N:N)))}

have this formula..

=SUMIFS(Sheet2!$D$2847:$D$3065;Sheet2!$I$2847:$I$3065;$B$6;Sheet2!$G$2847:$G$3065;$C$6;Sheet2!$B$2847:$B$3065;A14)

D2847 - D3065

includes Numbers..

lets say.. i want every cell counted which has in these range the first two numbers..

every cell has..

5052

5053

5054

4060

4050

so i count the entries which has 50.. so in total it gives a result of 3. Not summing them, just count the entries that has the first two numbers "50" in every row..

The Red Markings can be replaced, the rest should stay.. it is needed due different criteria.....

im trying to use below formula using SUM and two IF conditions and 1 left formula

Cond 1

Cond 2

Value

22

m9

10

23

m9

10

[code]....

the following formula works to capture the sum of combination 22 and m9:

{=SUM(IF((A2:A6)=A8,IF(B2:B6=B8,C2:C6,)))}

22

m9

20

24

m8

10

however, in my original table, the 22, 23 etc are values with 6 numbers as shown below

Cond 1

Cond 2

Value

2201

m9

10

2301

m9

10

[code]....

following formula didnt work;

{=SUM(IF(LEFT(E2:E6,2)=E8,IF(F2:F6=F8,G2:G6,)))}

22

m9

0

23

m9

0

why the secund formula didnt capture anything when i added left to the first one.

I have numbers in a cell such as 1/25, 4/31, 12/35 etc I have the current formula to extract the left or right number but when there is only a single digit it also includes the / is there a way of eliminating this.

The numbers vary from 1 to 2 digits.

My current formula is =IF(C15<18,LEFT(E8,2))+IF(C15>18,RIGHT(E8,2))

I only want it to show the number not the forward slash

This formula tells me the highest number: =LARGE((G36,O36,W36,AE36),1)

The result is AE36. The answer is correct. I get the highest number. I want the formula now shows Y3 instead of AE36.

In my situation Y3 is the name of 1 of my tables. In my case I get from this table, the highest number.

These are 6 cells to the left side. These are 33 cells to the upper part. In the future I will work with more tables. So the answer must always move

I've been busy this few days to investigate. That is why I know it works with offset. Anyway, I still do not know how it goes.

reading a zero number in a cell

here an example :

on Cell A1 = 01

on Cell B2 = 10

so I write at C1 the formula is =left(A1,1) but how come the number that comes out is 1 not 0 (zero) ?

but if I write at D1 the formula is = right(A1,1) the number comes out is 0 (zero)

how to make the formula that can read the zero in Cell C1?

I need a cell formula that will (a) identify the highest N values in an above specified column range, (b) color the interior of those N cells (I suspect that this is not possible), and most importantly (c) return the average value of N corresponding cells, where the corresponding cells are located on the same rows as the identified N high value cells but in a specified column to the left (not necessarily adjacent)

Does anybody know what this formula would look like?

Example:

-----------------------

...| A | B | C | D | E | F |

-------------------------

1 |....| * |.........| 7 |...

-------------------------

2 |....................| 2 |...

-------------------------

3 |....| * |.........| 6 |...

-------------------------

4 |....................| 1 |...

-------------------------

5 |....| * |.........| 5 |...

-------------------------

6 |....................| ? |...

-------------------------

? = average of B1,B3,B5 where (N = 3) and (specified column to the left = B)

I have a column that is giving unwanted value . dont know the reason as that excel file has been created by some other guy and I just started working on it .

My Question is how to move to 2 cells left(A for example) from from that unwanted value column. and check if

A is equal to cell above it , means B Cell(Row above A but same column).

As my excel file is totally based on Forms, Macros, I am not quite familiar with macros.

Is there any way to put if condition in one cell (column) and drag it all the way down which should work for all the values in these 3 column.

And also if A=B then I want to make that unwanted value cell="".

I would like to add a value to a cell. The value in this cell will either be 1, 2, 3 or 4.

The value of this cell needs to be "1", if the cell to its left is "Red".

The value of this cell needs to be "2", if the cell to its left is "Purple".

The value of this cell needs to be "3", if the cell to its left is "Green".

The value of this cell needs to be "4", if the cell to its left is "Blue".

I believe I need to find the HEX values for the colors, but that is no problem, I just need the formula of the function if you know it.

Is it possible to do the following?

if cell A1 = 6 and cell A2 =5.8 (0.2 below A1) colour cell A2 orange

if cell A1 = 6 and cell A2 =5.5 or below (0.5 or more below A1) colour cell A2 red

if cell A1 = 6 and cell A2 =6.2 / 6.5 / 6.8 (0.2/0.5/0.8 above A1) colour cell A2 green

if cell A1 = 6 and cell A2 =7.2 or above (1.2 or above A1) colour cell A2 green

I've tried a search on this, but have not had any luck. On my spreadsheet, Column B contains text split by a forward slash:

I.e.

123/4567

I am trying to write a formula in column L to display the information on the left of the "/" as well as a formula in column M to display the information on the right of the "/". Normally I would just use the Right/Left worksheet functions, however the number could vary from 2-5 digits on each side of the slash.

I have a set of data in an Excel 2007 spreadsheet and want to move it to Sheet2. I move all that I need except for one column which needs some work done to it and I keep receiving errors. Sheet1 Column 12 is comprised of six digits, space, six digits, space, and four more digits. What I need is the first twelve (12) digits, less the space, moved to column1 on Sheet2.

The code I am attaching does the following:

The year 2009 to Sheet2 Column2

Column6 + Column7 to Sheet2 Column3

Column8 + Column9 to Sheet2 Column4

Column6 + Column7 + Column8 + Column9 to Sheet2 Column5.

How can I use Len and Left together to ensure a workbook name begins with Order?

I've tried using Left("Order", 5) and didn't work.

Len(Activeworkbook.Name, 5) didn't work either.

I have a table with a range of numbers inputted as text (ie. 200-400, 300-500, 65-90, etc.) that I am extracting. I made a formula that works for pulling out numbers if they are in the triple digit range but don't want to rejig if they go down to double-digits, or up to quad. (too tedious to change the right and left count function midway if data suddenly changes)

The values that I am extracting are separated by -'s and when i use the formula below i end up with negative numbers if one of the pairs is less than 3 digits (ie. 2)

=VALUE(RIGHT('NAIC Spread 2007'!D11,3))

how can i work in a Len function to deal with this issue?

i have this issue, i named column J. now it says instead of using Social Security numbers as a unique identifier, they are considering using an ID of the first 3 letters of the last name (L Name) followed by the first letter of the first name (F Name). If the last name is fewer than 3 characters, the letter Z replaces each missing character.
