Calculate Angle From X, Y Coordinates

I have a userform, on it is a very large command button with a picture of a map loaded on the button. The button is 500 width(X) by 500 height (Y), so the center of the button would be at the location 250 (X) by 250 (Y). The button is coded for mousemove to get the X,Y cooridates and when you _Click the button a textbox gives the distance to the point(mousemove) from the center of the button. All that is good, but now I'd like to find the degree of the point referenced to a compass, ie, if the point is at 250 (X) and (Y) is less than 250 then the point would be due north at 0/360 degrees and if the point (Y) is greater than 250, it would be south of the center of the button. I hope this make sense. It's been a long time since trig. I've been searching but can't seem to find the correct formula to figure this out.

Here's the other problem, I'm doing this in powerpoint so I'm not sure if cos or tan functions are loaded in this program. I am posting this in the xl forum because I figure that's where most of the people who could figure this out are. If this is in the incorrect forum I can try to move it,

Calculate Relative Vector Coordinates
I am running a fairly complex simulation at work and have quite a few different functions in it. For the simulation to work properly, i need to have the Solver add-in and the Analysis ToolPak installed. Everytime that i try and use the simulation on a different computer (or if anyone else tries to run it) the add-ins must be enabled again. Is there a way to set up a macro to enable them when either i open the simulation (first preference) or when a button is pressed (2nd preference).

Numbering For Coordinates
how to get a single cell (C2) and (D2) to make the numbering format go from (## ## ##) to (######).

The Excel spread sheet is a coordinate converter, designed to take Degree's minuets seconds and convert it to Decimal Degrees, the formula is set up and work Great, but every time I copy and paste the coordinate to the excel spread sheet, i have to manuelly erase the spaces between the numbers so the formula can work properly. How can i get the cell to automatically delete the space between the numbers to save me time.(I.e 29 35 42.34325 -to-> 293542.34325)

Calculating Distance Between Coordinates
i use a Trimble Total Station Survey equipment, This is used for suveying and measuring distances between points on jobs. These points can be exported onto the pc as a text file and imported onto excel, the file has a northing and easting to locate the point these are comma separated.

I would like to know if excell is capable of working out a distance betwen two of these such points by using the two pairs of northing and easting coordinates. The maximum distance between two points is no more than 50 meters. If for example when imported onto excel point 1's coordinates are locted in cells A1 and B1 and points 2's coordinates are locted in cells A2 and B2.

Finding The Hypotenuse Of From Two Pairs Of X,Y Coordinates
I have a map with several waypoints and would like to find the distance between any of these two waypoints. Sounds simple, but I have having an issue with the later parts of the excel file. Let me explain further.

There are over 100 waypoints on this map we have. Each waypoint has an, seemingly arbitrary, X-coordinate and Y-Coordinate. However, if you divide the coordinates by [X], they turn into miles. It should go without saying that finding the distance between two waypoints is rather simple mathematically, but I having an issue figuring out how to pull two random waypoints and having the distance automatically calculated.

So far, I just have column A with the waypoint name and with column B and C having the X and Y coordinates respectively. Is there anyway I can create some sort of call function that when two waypoint values are entered it would automatically calculate the distances?

Data Type Of Coordinates Of 2-dimensional Array
I have a big array "DataArray" and want to access it:

For i = 1 To 4
variable = DataArray(SourceArray(i))
Next i

"DataArray" has two dimensions, so SourceArray has to consist of data like this:

SourceArray(1) = 1,2
sourceArray(2) = 2,4

What data type does Sourcearray have to be? Integer doesnt seem to work, and DataArray doesnt like a string as coordinates. I have a workaround with two different arrays of integer for x and y coordinates, but this cannot be it.

Modify Free-form Shape Coordinates
Right now I'm modifying a figure based on size data in an excel table.

I'm modifying the X/Y coordinates of the points of the freeform shape with VBA, however, I have to use absolute x,y coordinates.

ActiveCell.Address - Discarding Fixed Coordinates
I'm attempting to write a piece of code that builds a formula dependent on the location of the cell it is being created in. The relevant line of code currently reads as follows:

ActiveCell.Offset(0, 5).Value = "=" & ActiveCell.Offset(0, -5).Address & " & " & ActiveCell.Offset(0, -6).Address

Which when activated in cell A3, will enter the formula =$A$3 & $A$2

However, I would like to know if there is a way of automatically building a formula like this, only without the absolute references. Reason being, this formula is used in a large table, which is sorted in date order automatically when the sheet is activated. Since the code generated will point at the row it was generated on, when the table is sorted, this formula will calculate the incorrect result.

Minimum Distance Calculation Of Geographic Coordinates Using Array
I am working on two spreadsheets, one we shall call Target Sheet and the other Reference Sheet.

On the target sheet, I have a set of 200 geographic coordinates longitude and latitude (in decimal degrees). Each pair of coordinates coresponds to a geographic site.

On the reference sheet, I have a set of 900 geographic coordinates longitude and latitude (in decimal degrees). Each pair of coordinates coresponds to a geographic site. Note that of the 900, 200 are the same from target sheet, other 700 are different sites.

Using the spherical law of cosines, I can calculate the distance between a set of coordinates on target sheet agianst a set of coordinates on reference sheet. This allows me to see the distance from one geographic site, to the other. This was easy. The formula I use is as follows: ....

Getting Max Value Of A Point Inside A Square Defined With X,y Coordinates
I have a square which is defined with x,y coordinates (roughly 2000 points), and for each point I have a value. And I have to divide this square in to 9 equal sub grids, and find the max value in each sub grid. I have all the coordinates for the sub grids. But I canít get the max value of the specified cells.

I am thinking something like this:

if 0<x>10 and 0<y<10 then it is sub grid 1 and I want to find the max value there
and if 0<x>10 and 10<y<20 then it is sub grid 2 and so oneÖ..

Button Position/Coordinates On Worksheet. Discrepancy Between Versions
Add Multiple Buttons That Select Row Of Housing Cell. One of my Macro's places a button on a sheet using Top/Left;

Set sbut = Sheets("Listings").Shapes.AddFormControl(xlButtonControl, _
Range("J" & count).Left, Range("J" & count).Top, 50, 12)

When I try to find the row of the clicked button using the following code;


The code behaves differently in Excel 2002 and 2007. In 2002 it returns the row the button sits on, but 2007 returns the cell above the button. This could be because the workbook is an XLS running in Excel 2007 in compatibility mode? Is there a way to "nudge" the button down a little after it has been placed using .top/.left ? Or is the only way around this something like;

count = ActiveCell.Row
If Application.Version >= 12 Then
count = count + 1
End If

Is this a bug, or something that I am doing wrong ? The workbook needs to be a .xls to ensure that it works in older versions of Excel.

Calculate Totals
I have a spread sheet that is used to review calls placed by a call center.

Column A has the extensions of the phones, and Column E has the type of call (Outgoing or Incoming). Each line is a new phone call.

We have about 8 extensions, but the worksheet could have a couple thousand calls. So, Column A could have extension 1401 from rows 1-100 as extension 1401 made 100 calls. I'm looking for a formula or macro that will summarize how many outgoing and incoming calls extension 1401 had. Thoughts?

My initial thought was something like this:


In this formula, I would type in the extension of H2 and it would scan Column A and add up the values in Column E. The only problem is, that Column H doesn't contain a numerical value. It only has "Incoming" and "Outgoing" (minus the quotes), so this doesn't work.

Calculate The Probabilities
How to calculate probabilities... say that I am buying pop bottles that say "1 in 6 wins" or drawing buttons from hats where 5 of them are numbered 1-5 and the other one is the winner. (Note that you would have to keep putting the buttons back after drawing so there is always 1-5 and a winner whenever you draw)

The possible combininations are easy to figure out... just do 6 to the power of how ever many bottles you buy or how many times you draw a button. So obviously if you draw once, there is 6^1 possible... if you draw twice there are 6^2 (or 36) possible combinations.

To figure out how many winning possibilities (win atleast once) there are it's not too hard at this level... you can just list the possibilities:

First - Second
1-W (1 winning combination)

Calculate Overtime
I have a time sheet for my employee's that I need to calculate their overtime in 1.5x and 2x rates.

Their overtime totals are done in individule columns from D33 to S33. The first 4 hours per day are charged at 1.5x and anything over that is 2x. I want to show the 1.5x in one box and the 2x in another. I do believe that I need two formulas one in each of the boxes where the final totals would go.

Here's an example, in columns D37 to D41 the employee has worked 12, 14, 9, 16 and 14.5 hours. so that's 17 hours @ 1.5x and 8.5 @ 2x.

Calculate Text As Value
trying to calculate a text as value in a formula.

In cell A5 (please see the excel attached) I have a weighted formula that is supoosed to return a final result based on the drop down from cells B5 to V5. Drop downs give the option of choosing a value. Everything is going fine as long as you select a value (5, 3 or 0).

In cells H5, J5, K5, R5, S5, U5 there is also the option of choosing NA. I am trying to get the formula to calculate NA as being equal to 5. Basically, if for the respective parameter someone choses NA, the final result in cell A5 should not be influenced.

If all the parameters are 5 and only one has NA (any of the cells H5, J5, K5, R5, S5, U5), the final result (in cell A5) should be 100.

The same applies if all parameters are 5 & more than one cell or all the cells that have the NA options (H5, J5, K5, R5, S5, U5) are NA.
