# Autofit Problems With A Row That Includes A Formula Referencing Another Cell

Jun 14, 2006
I have a document that I created that has merged cells. In order to autofit the rows of this document, I referenced the merged cells in singular cells that are not visible to the users of the document. (They are not hidden)

It had been working relatively nicely, but now the autofit function is not working correctly. If I copy and paste values into the cell it will work, but this would not be my ideal solution. I have tried playing with the number format, which works for the most part if I set it to "&" - text. It doesn't work for some longer cells with line breaks in them.

I am trying to creat a summary sheet to an attendance log that goes back several years. Idealy, I want to be able to set a date range in the formula that will show me a count of how many absenses, lates, or leave earlies. The table I am taking the data from has columns from left to right (Date, Absense, # of Absenses, Late, Duration of, Left Early, Duration of, and MP) For example in column A I want to see the date Range of 10/1/2013 to 4/1/2014 and I want a count/sum of each of the categories.

What I need is a formula for the following:

If Column A equals "No Show" and Column B equals "Anthem" then sum of cell C2 divided by D2

Every time I input this simple little formula I get an error.

I have a macro that will create 15 reports based on a filter in a Pivot Table and will save them to a folder based on the filter names. This work great, however in one of the reports I have a few vlookups as an example of one of them,

Code:

=VLOOKUP(Selector,Trends2!$B$6:$LV$22,AI50,FALSE)

. Now when the report is created from the macro, the vlookup is changed to,

Code:

=VLOOKUP(Selector,'Z:ISB DataISR RASC non transactional dataISR dataNational and Zone Reports[ISR National and Zone Template v18a.xlsm]Trends2'!$B$6:$LV$22,AI50,FALSE)

Is there any way to stop this from happening? Is it a general thing in Excel? Code below that creates the reports if needed

Code:

Sub Create_National_Report()

'Start of report creation process

Sheets("Pivot Tables (2)").Select

[Code]....

I have seen a few posts that are close to this but not quite right. I have a situation where I need to do "=LEN..." formula that counts trailing zeros at the end of numbers (meaning zeros that are displayed at the end of a number but do not appear in the actual cell value).

example:

Cell E19 contains the actual value 4773.52, but it is displayed in currency format with FOUR digits so it displays as $4,773.5200.

The formula I am using is =LEN(MID(E19,FIND(".",E19)+1,4)). The result is 2, which means it does not include the last two trailing zeros in the LEN count.

Is there anyway to get it to include the trailing zeros so the result equals 4? Either w/formula, macro, or UDF?

Is weird I know, but I need to know how many decimal places (displayed, not actual) for many numbers on many sheets that I do not create myself.

Here is what I have

1. Have a COUNT value in a cell (counted the number of rows with values in them).

2. A formula that needs this value (sums another set of values in another column that has the same number of rows).

Example: the COUNT value is 12, and is located in cell G5.

For simplicity sake I have a formula in cell I5 SUM(F1:F12).

Instead of directly referencing F12, I want the formula to be SUM(F1:F(G5)).

This does almost exactlly what I want. The one problem that I have is that the active cell remains B1 as it enters the formula in the rest of column B. I need it to refer to the row that it is entering the formulas; meaning each formula entered in B2,3,4, etc. is still referencing cells A1 & D1 for sBook & a sFilePath.

Dim sBook As String

Dim sFilePath As String

Dim sLen As Long

Range("B1").Select

sBook = ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1)

sFilePath = ActiveCell.Offset(0, 2)

sLen = Range("A1").End(xlDown).Row

Range("B1").Formula = "='" & sFilePath & "[" & sBook & ".xls]Sheet1'!R1C1"

Range("B1", Cells(sLen, 2)).Formula = Range("B1").Formula

I've got an issue where Formulas Referencing Cells on another sheet are getting changed automatically to refer the the moved cell data. The formulas on a sheet (2) refer to specific cells on sheet (1) within my workbook. I update Sheet(1) data with a macro. When sheet (1) updates, the present data gets shifted to the right.

In other words, I need to prevent the formulas from changing to reference the moved data values and keep referencing the initial cell with the new values. xample of change that occurs with update:

Correct:

I am working on a sheet called 2005, with "Jan" entered into cell C4. I want to reference cells on the sheet called Jan2005 using a function that points to C4 and adds "2005".

I have a series of worksheets, named, 'sheet1' 'sheet2' etc. through to 'sheet10'. A final worksheet, 'sheet11' has been produced that uses the formula: address=Sheet1!A1, address=Sheet2!A1, address =Sheet3!A1 etc. The same goes for other identical cells on each of the sheets. I am at the moment entering each cell on 'sheet 11' separately because if I copy the formula down it progressively changes the cell value and not the sheet number. How can I produce a formula whereby the cells remain identical but the sheets change progressively?

Is there a formula similar to WORKDAY that would include weekends and make something due on the next business day? For example, I have a bill due on 6/1/11 and I need to follow up 5 days later - which would be normally 6/6/11 but the WORKDAY formula makes it 6/8/11 as it is adding 2 extra days.

I am using Excel 2010.

I want to set a conditional format to cell A1 with a value in cell P1 When the value in P1 is between 0 and 10 the conditional value in P1 should be set.

Note

cell A1 is also set with a conditional format to put a border around it when there's a value in A1 (cellvalue is not equal to " ")

So the formula referencing P1 would be a second condition.

Please see attached file. In my column L, I'm trying to find a formula that would reference my column J to the table in the data tab. My problem is the data in column J has a hyphen (-) in the number ex.. 047-258-1 and the next tab does not have a hyphen in between the number...ex 0472581. The correct results in cell L3 would be Walmart. How can I adjust my formula to accommodate this hyphen. Can this also be reflected in my pivot table as well?

I want to use the values in a range of cells in a sheet for a formula in another sheet. The problem is that these range of cells already has formulas and when I select these cells for use in another formula, the values doesn't get picked up and my formula doesn't work. for example -

cell L4 in sheet 1 has a formula - ='H:VK_2011_onwards1_ACC_BJS_SAA6

and it has a value - 34.76

cell L5 in sheet 1 has a formula - ='H:VK_2011_onwards1_ACC_BJS_SAA6

and it has a value - 47.09

Now I want to use this two cell to calculate an average in sheet 2. So if I use the formula =AVERAGE(Sheet1!L4:L5). I get no result.

I'm using Office 2007 professional and I'm trying to format a cell (merged cell) so that when you enter text and it goes beyond the size of the designed cell that it will automatically continue and shift the additional text downward, like a paragraph. Also it shift everything below down with it. Is this possible? I have already tried wrap text field and AutoFit row height. This keeps it within the cell but it is not visible or printable once you tab out. I would like to have it continue like in a paragraph. Like a word doc may do. It’s visible and it shifts everything below downward as it grows, which also allows it to be printable.

When I'm moving around in an Excel sheet, I want to have a keyboard shortcut that Autofits only the column I am "in", and only to the width of the cell I'm "in". So I can arrow-key into a cell, hit ctrl-shift-W or whatever, and the column will autofit.

I try Cells.EntireColumn.AutoFit but that's not what I want, it autofits every column. Sometimes this is not appropriate and I want to do it manually for the columns I want auto-fit.

I guess the more general question is how do I write VBA code for the column I am in and not every column or a specific column - not Columns("A:I") or whatever, it's going to be a different column every time depending on what cell I'm editing.

I have a worksheet that includes a cell that gives the current week of the month, in the form of "Week #". I've been using the formula below for several months and have had no issues until this month, and it's driving me crazy.

Given that cell D2 is the beginning of the week (usually Monday, but at the first of the month it may be a different day):

="Week " & ROUNDUP((DAY($D$2)+WEEKDAY(DATE(YEAR($D$2),MONTH($D$2),0)))/7,0)

I'm not sure where the logic is going wrong here; it's worked so well up until now. For the week beginning November 2, 2009, the formula above returns "Week 2" rather than "Week 1".

I am wondering within the Excel interface, is it possible to auto-fit the size of a comment box to its content?

I have searched the internet and found that a macro as follows could do the job:

Sub FitComments()

Dim c As Comment

For Each c In ActiveSheet.Comments

c.Shape.TextFrame.AutoSize = True

Next c

End Sub

However, this Macro applies to and resize all of the the comment boxes in the active sheet.

I would like to just auto-fit the comment box only to the selected cell, or even better, to multiple selected cells.

I'm racking my brains as to how I can structure a formula to conditionally rank a value in an array against only those values in the array whose corresponding criteria cell includes a specific letter.

So for example I have a list of 12 values, say 126; 239; 0; 171; 162; 157; 130; 199; 122; 153; 0; 15.

Each of those values corresponds to a heading, say: CDE; DFE; FGE; DFE; ERD; DEA; BDF; DFB; CDE; CEF; CAB; FAB. As you will note some of the headings may or may not be the same and may or may not include the same letters in different orders.

How can I write a formula that ranks in ascending order a given value drawn from the above list (which will be in another cell but which in this case is, let's say, the first value: 126) only against those values whose heading includes a specific character, for example the character C (the character in question will vary and be defined in a specific cell).

As an added complication I need the ranking calculation to exclude any zero values. So in the above example what the formula needs to do is rank the value 126 against a sub-set of the whole array comprising only the values 126; 122; 153; 0.

The answer I need is 2 because, discounting the zero value, 126 is the second highest value.

My workbook is for financial planning but I'm attempting to streamline an input page (name, birthdate, etc) that will be referenced throughout the entire workbook to trigger automatic calculations (present value, education calculations, etc).

The cell in the input page is a birthdate - which when populated will trigger a cell on a different worksheet to calculate the respective age using this formula:

Code:

=IF(MONTH(TODAY())>MONTH('Input Page'!B30),YEAR(TODAY())-YEAR('Input Page'!B30), IF(AND(MONTH(TODAY())=MONTH('Input Page'!B30),DAY(TODAY())>=DAY('Input Page'!B30)),

YEAR(TODAY())-YEAR('Input Page'!B30),(YEAR(TODAY())-YEAR('Input Page'!B30))-1))

The problem is if there is nothing written in the birthdate cell then the age cell will automatically calculate 114 (reference photo below). Ideally I'd like that cell to be blank if nothing is in the birthdate cell on the input worksheet. I'm assuming since I'm using an IF formula to calculate the age already then I'll need to use a macro to to an "ignore".

I have a long list of amounts one per day. Sun-Sat repeating. I Total the amounts for each week and place it next to Sun. now i have the total for that billing week.

I need to reference these numbers from a different sheet that only has one row per week. I tried to do ='sheet1'!a2 then next row down ='sheet1'!a9 and ='sheet1'!a16 etc then fill down but when i do it seems to start again and do a3, a10 and a17.

Is there a way I can get it to only use cells with figures in them? IE if cell is empty then move down one else use the amount in cell... or how do I get it to reference 7 cells below each time rather than the next immediate cell.

I'm having an issue with a formula that references another workbook, and I'm not sure what the culprit is.

The formula is this: =IF(ISERROR(E4/VLOOKUP(D4,'C:Documents and SettingsusernameMy DocumentsRoom Capacity Master List.xlsx'!Table2[#All],2)),"",E4/VLOOKUP(D4,'C:Documents and SettingsusernameMy DocumentsRoom Capacity Master List.xlsx'!Table2[#All],2))

It works just fine on the initial pass. When I reopen the book and it prompts if I'd like to update the data, and I select yes, everything goes away. Cells E4 and D4 are both part of a PivotTable, not sure if that is important or not. This is happening on Excel 2010 running on XP.

Just got a problem with auto-populating cells with a formula that is made up of variables. My formula references the cells on another sheet, but this will be dynamic.

I'm trying to get the formula to reference e.g. cell A1 in the Calls Taken sheet, with the column held in the srtshortname variable and the row held in the formularow variable.

Code:

set rng = range(cells(introwdate, formulacol), cells(introwdate, formulacol))

rng.formula = "='Calls Taken'!" & strshortname & "" & formularow & ""

I am having trouble with the following formula in my workbook with many sheets: ="='"&MONTH(A6)&"-"&DAY(A6)&"'!"&"$B$13". I entered this formula into B6 of the current sheet. Cells A6:A33 contains a date (02-Jan-07). So what I'm trying to do is retrieve the value in B13 of the sheet corresponding to the month and day in A6. If I hard code this formula into B6 ='1-2'!$B$13 it works but I don't want to edit each of the formulas in column B to correspond to the correct sheet. When I type in the above concatenated formula it just returns text (='1-2'!$B$13). Is there a way to do this so the formula will actually execute?

I've come across a problem I can't seem to solve. I have a cell that contains =AVERAGE(D8:AH8) which was working fine. I made some changes to my sheet and now D8 through AH8 contain a number arrived at through a formula ( for example =D6/D7 ) instead of just a hard number, and my average formula no longer works.

I'm a bit over my head on this one. I want a formula that does the following: Look at the date I put in on the last tab and find the correct date on the other tabs. Using that date as the column I want it to return the correct row for the data.reference.

I am using the HLOOKUP function. I'm not even sure this is the right function. Ont the workbook attached I'm trying to get the data on the Totals tab to come from the Sept Wk 1 through Sept Wk 5 tabs. The formula I tried to use is on the Totals page C7.

Im using the below formula to paste information into a new spreadsheet based on the if then statement. However, as i paste the formula down the sheet, it doesnt reference all the cells. The formula stays on the cells it referenced initially. How can I make the formula reference all the cells as i drag it down?

=IF('[All Cases ATL.xlsx]New_All_Case'!$C$2="DA1",IF('[All Cases ATL.xlsx]New_All_Case'!$T$2="A",'[All Cases ATL.xlsx]New_All_Case'!$E$2,""),"")
