# Change Column And Cell Reference Name?

Apr 25, 2014

I have a massive excel sheet with 300,000 rows and 100+ columns. When reading back through my formulas, it can get very confusing. Example: "=(AZ9*5 + 1)+BH9/2 +(AP9*0.75)" I then have to figure out what each column letter is representing. Instead of this, could I rename a column so I can reference the variable name? Example:

Instead of =CONCATENATE(A4, " ", B4)

have

=CONCATENATE(FirstName4, " ", LastName4)

## Change Reference Cell From Column To Row

Jul 25, 2008

I am using this formula

=IF(\$A5="Select","",MAX(INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE(\$A5,"/","")&"m1440"&"!d:d")))

It looks for the sheet based on A5
It finds the max number from the sheet in Column D

This is what i would like to do please....

On this found sheet - Column A has dates in this format yyyy.mm.dd

I would like to enter a date in a cell (say for example AA5 on main sheet)

Can the formula above be adapted to:

Look for sheet based on A5
then
Look at date entered in AA5
then
use Vllookup to find row containing date in AA5 (making table range the ENTIRE SHEET found based on A5)
then
Return value from Column D

## Change Formula Cell Reference Based On Another Cell Reference

Jan 8, 2012

How do I change a formula cell reference based on another cell's reference? I'm building a schedule that looks to a task's trigger and adds days based on that relationship. All entries in column "A" will be text and all cells in "B" will be the simple formula "=A2" or "=A3". Due date is calculated by adding the value in "C" to the preceding date in column "D". In the spreadsheet below, the trigger for "Budget set" is "Specs written" with 3 days added to the previous due date.

________A________________B_____________C_________D
2 Design begins__Proj OK______________10____10-Jan
3 Specs written__Design begins (A2)____5____15-Jan (D2+C3)
4 Budget set_____Specs written (A3)____3____18-Jan (D3+C4)

If the trigger for A4, "Budget set", changed from A3 to A2, is there a way that the formula that determines the due date in D4 could read the trigger cell reference in B4 so that the value in the corresponding row in column "C" is added in the date column?

## Change Column Reference To Letters

Aug 1, 2007

I have several Excel workbooks that suddenly has converted to numbers for both columns and rows. Sheets that were saved and correct yesterday, upon opening today, are now numbered rather than number and letter. Any of my formulas now reference a RNumber and a number when citing location.

## Automatically Change Formula Column Reference

Feb 7, 2008

In Sheet1,

C14 = Sheet2!D2
C15 = Sheet2!D3
C16 = Sheet2!D5

What i want to do is to change "D" to "E". Next time i run it, it will change from "E" to "G".

I want a macro to do it, so that I don't have to change it manually one by one. For some reason, when i try to use .formulaR1C1, the reference change, and I couldn't get it to work.

## Column Formula That Won't Change When Move Reference Cells

May 22, 2014

I'm dealing with forecasting invoices. The main column 'BALANCE' has a formula referencing the previous cell and then adding or subtracting invoices (ENTRY). The problem I have is that I'll put values in ENTRY that I expect to come in at some point but as they arrive I need to change the order of the cells. So I'm constantly changing the order and then it changes the formula in BALANCE. I tried absolute cells (and even found a work around way to flow absolute cells by flowing then viewing formulas then using the replace function but that didn't work.

So my formula in BALANCE is:
=\$I\$173+\$E\$174-\$G\$174

but if I move G174 to another cell I'd like to keep the BALANCE formula to stay G174 instead of following the move.

## Easily Change Column Reference In Formula Argument

Jun 17, 2009

i have the table of holiday days with 7 columns(7 countries).Each column consists of 10(or more rows (holiday days).

I have a formula for calculating start day for a deposit which has to be renewed.
formula is =workdays(end date of deposit,-2,A1:A10).
-2 in formula is because all the trades in the market are traded Today+2days.
A1:A10 is column of holiday days.
This formula calculates the start of deposit excluding weekends,holiday days.

BUT I have more then 7 countries and I would like to have a macro so when in cell F10 I type SWEDEN,my formula automatically use the column with holiday days B1:B10 for sweden.
When I type Finland, the formula uses column C1:C10 with holiday days from Finland respectively.

## Excel 2007 :: How To Change Autofill Options Or When Moving Right In Row Reference Down A Column

Apr 15, 2014

I'm working on a decision matrix to evaluate different alternative production methods. Before that criteria have to be choosen and weighted against each other. The user would fill out the yellow/ blue cells with (0=less important; 1=equally; 2=more). Then values are added up and put into some kind of ranking.

The example was done by hand, which costs a lot of concentration. I would now like to extend the matrix - do you know how to fill out the grey cells more efficiently?

## Way To Change A Cell Reference Within A Formula

Dec 28, 2008

Is there a way to change a cell reference within a formula. ie: If the formula is =A1 (in reference to cell A1) and I wanted a new cell to have the reference =A10. Can I make a formula which was A1+9, and therefore lookup A10.

## Change One Value Of A Cell Without Changing Others That Reference It

Apr 7, 2007

I am creating a schedule to use for our helpdesk - it has pre-defined tasks that need to be assigned each day - easy enough to accomplish with a formula. And I've done this by using this similar formula on each line of the tasks (This first task is based on a manual entery into one field (B19))
=IF(AND(B6="Liz"),"Paul",IF(AND(B6="Paul"),"Mark",IF(AND(B6="Mark"),"Diane",IF(AND(B6="Diane"),"Jeff",IF(AND(B6="Jeff"),"Dan R",IF(AND(B6="Dan R"),"Chris",IF(AND(B6="Chris"),"Liz","")))))))

So, B4 is one task (phones) and the formula above (B6) is from another task (tickets) and then a third task (admin) looks at the value of B5 and uses the same formula above, etc.

However, I want to be able to change the value of a single cell, based on the (manual entry) value of another (out of task) series of cells (i.e. Sick (B35) & vacation (B36)) - and I don't want any of the other task cells(in the C cell series of 'tasks'), that are basically linked together by the value of the other cell, to change. Thus, in turn, would mean that the same person would now be in two different cells, and thus is creating a circular reference.

Let me spell this out a bit clearer.
The first manual field is B19 - If I enter 'Chris' into this field, then field C5 matches it. Then field B6 uses the formula above to figure it's value; as does B7 thru B12.
Now, If I put another manual entry into 'Sick' (B35), then I want whichever task that person is assigned to (for this example, we'll say I entered 'Jeff" into Sick, and Jeff happens to be on 'tickets' that day) to change to whoever is in cell B12 - but I don't want any of the other cells to change - but, since they are all dependant on each other, this doesn't seem like a possibility.

I've tried creating a count of names in the Sick or Vacation fields and then added this to the formula
=IF(AND(C5="Liz", B38=0),"Paul",IF(AND(C5="Paul",B41=0),"Mark",IF(AND(C5="Mark",B40=0),"Diane",IF(AND(C5="Diane",B40=0),"Jeff",IF(AND(C5="Jeff",B43=0),"Dan R",IF(AND(C5="Dan R",B37=0),"Chris",IF(AND(C5="Chris",B45=0),"Liz",B12)))))))

B38 being Pauls count; B41 being Marks, etc - so as long as their count equals zero, they are 'eligible' to fill that slot.
B12 is the last person on the schedule.

## Change A Macro To From And Absolute Cell Reference To Selected Cell.

## Reference To Cell Column Letter By Reference To Another Cell Value

Apr 25, 2014

Let's say I've ended up with the number 8 in Cell D4 for example. Is there a formula that can return the letter "G" (The 8th Column) so I can use it in future cell references ? If so, let's say we store that in Cell B5. How do I now refer to a cell in a chosen Row of that same Column by reference to Cell B5 ? For example if I want to refer to Cell G33 can you refer to this Cell in some form like Cell(Contents of Cell B5;33) ??? Don't want to use R1C1 type references if possible.

## Change Cell Reference Depending On Date

Jun 11, 2009

The spreadsheet attached is a timesheet I use. The last column on the sheet (IV) keeps a running total of time spent on each project. I need a way that i can find out how much time was spent on projects in specific timeframes (eg 01/01/09 - 07/01/01, or 01/01/09 - 31/01/09). my initial thought is perhaps i can have a "from" cell and a "to" cell to input the dates i require and it will total the relevant cells in the rows below.

NOTE! This workbook uses VBA to auto hide any column which are dates previous to today's date so you may need to unhide them to view times logged.

## Time Delay To Change Cell Reference

Jun 16, 2009

I need a code which will take a lump of data, B2:AW366 and cycle through the data in a single cell (A1)

So to clarify Cell A1 should cycle through:

B2

...
AU2
AV2
AW2
B3
C3
D3
E3
.....
.....
Continue until cell AW366 reached.

## Change Hyperlink As Cell Reference Is Changed In Cell?

Jan 27, 2012

Is it possible to change hyperlink as per the cell reference changed in a cell. for example :- in cell D2 the apply a match formula to find out a cell reference (eg "A"& Match function based on info type on cell A1) Now I want to create hyperlink as per the cell reference mentioned in cell D2. suppose I type Red in A1 and D2 give me the cell reference A51 than automatically Hyperlink create for A51. and it continiously changed whatever i type in A1 and what cell reference is showing in D2.

## How To Write Code That Does Not Change Even If It Can't Reference Target Cell

Oct 22, 2013

When ever I update my external CSV file and hit refresh all data, I get #REF! Errors. The CSV file has a table that changes daily. Thus the "A" Column has a different number of rows depending on the day. The problem is that Monday the CSV file will contain 700 Rows, while on Friday it will have 200 Rows. I end up with a lot of #REF! Errors friday. How do I write the code so that (A561 for example) does not change regardless if it can reference the target cell or not? I even thought of making a macro that just copied the formula into all of the cells after each refresh, but there must be a better way.

Example code
=IF(A561>0,IF(Start!\$H\$2="Monday",'calculations-mon-sat'!O561,calculation!O561),"")

=IF(#REF!>0,IF(Start!\$H\$2="Monday",'calculations-mon-sat'!O567,calculation!O567),"")

## How To Change Absolute Cell Reference Based On A Couple Of Conditions

Apr 28, 2014

I have a workbook that contains a column, G, which includes a formula that calculates distances (based on lat, long coordinates) to a training site ("TS" going forward) from other sites within the same district as that TS. There are numerous TS's in the company, usually 1 per district (but some districts do not have a training site), and I am trying to find a way to change my distance formula that will automatically detect which site is a TS, and then calculate the distances of those other sites in that same district to their respective TS's.

As it stands, I have to manually change an absolute cell reference every time I encounter one of these TS locations in the file (designated by a "TS" in Col F), and rerun the distance formula down the column. I would hate to have to do this several hundred times.

Attached is a sample file. Again, Col G contains the formula for distance calculation, and you will notice that the absolute cell references change each time a TS is encountered -- I have been doing this manually. Additionally, I would be curious to know if there is a way to spot any Districts that lack a TS, as in District 493, and specify that in Col G.

## Copy Selected Cells, Then Change To Absolute Cell Reference

## Copy Formula To Another Sheet And Simultaneously Change Reference Cell?

Apr 29, 2014

I have an excel workbook that has many spreadsheets (each one sheet has a client name)I have another excel workbook that has these client names on one sheet (on a list) and next to every name I have a number (i.e total turnover of the year).

In the first workbook (where every client has his sheet (tab named after the client) I want to have a cell that equals to the sum of some cells on the other workbook, that refer to the specific client

(it looks like this ='[comissions NF 10-14.xls]comissions 14(auto)'!\$J\$81+'[comissions NF 10-14.xls]comissions 14(auto)'!\$J\$197+'[comissions NF 10-14.xls]comissions 14(auto)'!\$J\$313+'[comissions NF 10-14.xls]comissions 14(auto)'!\$J\$429)

I want this sum to be added to every sheet of this workbook. each sheet refers to a client, so \$J\$81, \$J\$197 etc must be changed for the correct cell that refers to the name of the client. The tab names are alphabetical and so s the list.

Is there any way to do it, without re-entering the formula to each one?

## Macro To Change Linked Picture (Camera) Cell Reference

Jun 20, 2008

I am a complete newbie with the camera tool. Is there any way to make the camera tool dynamic so that the cells the tool is referencing can change upon the click of a button or some other form of switch? I am creating my first dashboard and this is the last step for my report to be completely dynamic.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Never mind, I apologize i just figured this one out...

Create a user defined formulaIn the UDF Create an if statementThe if statement's condition is the logistics in the shift mechanismThe value if true is the first group of cells you want in the snap shotThe value if false is the second group of cells you want in the snap shot, The range you want to toggle betweenRename the cell reference of any snap shot you have taken with the UDF name. In my example my UDF is "Dude" so when you select the camera tool it shows =Dude as the cell referenceReference a scroll bar to the conditional cell you selected in the if statement or choose statement. This is the shift mechanism

If you want to toggle between more than 2 sets of data use =Choose instead of =if

## Stop Formula Changing Cell Reference But Change Sheet Number When Dragged?

Feb 8, 2010

## Reference Every Nth Cell In A Column

Aug 26, 2009

I have a data entry spreadsheet that contains 120 data entry panels each of 10 rows. Each panel is separated by 3 rows (1 of which is hidden). When entering data to the panel the user is required to enter a date in column F of the data entry panel. The number of used rows in each data entry panel can vary from 1 to 10.

The entry of a date in the first Column F cell in each entry panel stamps today's date in Col F in the first row below each data panel (the hidden row) and that date is then linked to a separate summary sheet to show the date of data entry. The code I'm using for the date stamping routine is below, and although it works it is painfully slow and I'm sure very inefficient. I've had to break the code into the three sections as shown below because there seems to be a limit to the number of individual cells I can reference in each of the range statements. (Is there a limit or is the length of the range statement causing some other problem?)

## Keep Reference To A Cell When Column Is Deleted

Nov 28, 2007

I have a spreadsheet in excel with scheduling information, each group of data (job) is made up over 2 columns and 6 rows and is in a block (this is so it is easy to view and manouvre)

I have a link in another worksheet that extracts information from the cell if a criteria in the group is met!

At the end of each day I need to delete the columns (B and C, which make up that day) in the schedule.

When I do this all the references in the other worksheet are messed up, even though the next day is moved to columns B and C.

I would like the link to the other worksheet to automaticaly recognise the new values in column B and C as the reference.

## Layout Cell Reference Column

Jul 8, 2009

I am not sure how this is possible without doing copy pate transpose or individually refereing each cell to source. I would like the heading to be presented as in sheet1 which is sourced from Source sheet but if anychanges are made to source it updates the Sheet1. I have attached an example to illustrate. (Headers are not fixed number)

## Column Reference To Cell Transfer

Jan 18, 2010

I am trying to get information from 1 sheet to another. What i need to do is take the information from sheet 2 column H2:H26 and put it in sheet 1 cell I4. i already have the vlookup information in the other cells that i need but for what i need this for is different than a vlookup. basically i want to be able to type in a name (from sheet 2) in cell I4 (sheet1) and all the information that i need auto populates for me like i already have. I was able to do this with a drop down menu but that wont work as the information will change weekly,

## Reference Changing Column On Specified Cell?

Dec 9, 2013

I have 2 Sheets in Excel: Sheet 1 & Sheet 2

Sheet 1 has some basic data (numbers) in a column, say AB1, AB2, AB4, AB15 (specific cells)

Sheet 2 basically references the data in a nicer template, with the basic forumala: ="Sheet 1"!AB1, etc..

Now...Sheet 1 has a new column inserted and new data added weekly, so AC1, AC2, AC4. AC15

How do I ensure that Sheet 2 recognises the new Column Insert (incremental letter) and references it automatically?
