I have a worksheet with many pivot tables and (eventually) 2 data sheets. I run a macro that creates the first pivot table and copies it 17 times. Then, using Call, I would like it to create the second data table, "Credits" (I'm working on that, but that's a seperate issue). Finally, I want one of the existing PT to change to the new data, "Credits".
I'm using an named range and that seems to be where I'm breaking.
I have a chart in a workbook that works fine by looking at the following data series:
In the data series above...where the numbers are 2 and 35 I have named ranges "CHART_Start_Row" and "CHART_End_Row" which will change dynamically as appropriate and can replace these static numbers - but how do I incorporate these named ranges into the data series reference?
I was given the What I am looking to do is have a range of cells that I have named to be used in a data validation for a drop down box. I have named the cells and would like to have the user name the cells by typing in the name into one cell.
Cells F10:F14 are named "orange" right now (typed in cell F9) I would like the user to be able to change the name of the cells to whatever they want by changing the cell in F9 - i.e. "banana" and the range is automatically named banana so the data validation can search for Banana instead.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range) Dim Rng As Range Set Rng = Range("F9") If Not Intersect(Target, Rng) Is Nothing Then Range(oldName).Name = Range("F9") ActiveWorkbook.Names(oldName).Delete
This Code works great for 1 range - but I have 30 - I can't seem to figure out how to copy it etc for the other 30 ranges.
I've read through every thread I can find about dynamic named ranges as source data for a chart. It seems as if everyone can get it to work but me. I have a chart on one sheet that needs to update dynamically from data on another sheet when a button is clicked. Here's my code that runs when I click the button:
Sub Update_Center_Chart() Sheets("Center Data Chart").Select ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Center Data").Activate ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source = Range("CenterData") End Sub
I get the error message: "Type mismatch." The data is in B1:F2 on a different sheet. The formula in the named range, "CenterData" is this:=OFFSET('Center Data'!$B$1,0,0,COUNT('Center Data'!$B:$B),4). The data will expand by 1 row every time.
I have written this macro to convert into a csv file to run for all defined named ranges in the activesheet. It run jst perfect when I hit SAVE button and it creates that many different CSV files for each named range.
However I am trying to use same macro in the another file and the problem I am facing is there a lot more named ranges and I want to run the macro for only selected NAMED RANGE. In this case 2 Named Range / 24 Named range.
What part of code do I need to change and to what to make it work for just 2 named ranges ?
I have a workbook that I'm trying to figure out. It was made by a previous employee. This is what the formula looks like =MATCH(B49, OFFSET(Array_Data,,2,,1),0)
Array_Data consists of cells $H$4:$DN$506 on a different worksheet. I've tried to trace the formula but I can't get it to work. I thought I understood the offset function but I've never used it with a named range. Does anyone have a clue on how I can break this down and figure out what cell this data is refering to?
I am unable to use dependent data validation lists using the INDIRECT function when the initial named range is a dynamic one.
The named ranges 'Men','Women','Children' are all dynamic based on number of entries in each column order to accommodate a growing list, whilst also not having blanks in the dropdown (hence I haven't used entire column ranges). The named range 'test' is a static one.
Column H has a dependent data validation based on entry in Col G. This works for the static list, but not the dynamic one!
I am trying to apply data validation to a column of cells using named ranges. However, each row has a unique associated named range. For example:
A_______B Birds____* Dogs____* Cats____*
I can easily apply data validation to these three rows separately using named ranges. Ie three separate named ranges: =Birds =Dogs =Cats
However, I need a way to quickly apply data validation to column B using different named ranges for each row because there are about 2,000 rows. Is there a way to reference text in the cells of column A that contains the name of the named range? Or maybe a bit of VB code that could do it quickly?
Can you create a Pull-down List that contains data from Multiple Ranges.
If I have a List of Names Running down column A (A2:A10) another List of Names Running Down B (B2:B25) and a Third down C (C1:C15) each of them named Ranges ("List1", "List2" & "List3"), can I create a Pull-down list in Cell A1 that would include the names from all three ranges?
I have an excel addin that contains chart templates. Without going into too much detail a user will select an option which will update these templates then move the charts along with the source data to a new workbook. My question is this; How do I change the chart references programatically so that the chart data now points to the source data in the new workbook.
I need to create a named range on multiple sheets with the same named range & i cant figure out how to do this. EG :- I want to create a named range called "_SubUnitRows" on sheet1 starting from "A1:A50" & other named range again called "_SubUnitRows" on Sheet2 starting from "A1:A25" ...
I use INDIRECT to ensure my named ranges do not fail if the data is deleted (accidentally or intentionally), as #REF! errors will occur.
The problem with this method is that it automatically makes the Workbooks volatile because of the use of OFFSET and INDIRECT, hence the Workbooks always needs to be in manual calculation mode to be usable.
I have a Line graph using this entire table as the source data. What I would like to do is only use part of the data based on what the dropdown cell specifies. For example, if it is set to "Q1", I would like just the 2012-01 and 2012-02 data to show in the graph. If its "Q2", I would like only 2013-03 and 2012-04 data to show in the graph.
I am in the middle of building a macro for some data to be automated. I have two sheets, one of which has an existing chart but the data has been removed so now there is no values on the chart. I then have a second sheet with data on it. The range is b4:c16. I want to point this data onto my chart on the other sheet.
Is there a way to add cascading lists (from data validation or form/activex controls) to my excel spreadsheet WITHOUT using named ranges? Maybe structured references?
I need to avoid the named ranges because it will cause my workbook to have duplicate named range titles which I cannot avoid.
As a general example my issue arises because I have something like this where the titles are the same but they map to slightly different data. These also have to be cascading because the titles align to another list which I do not show in the example. I also considered using pivot tables, but the issue there is that the data validation lists repeat in the same worksheet. So I would have 3 cascading lists in row1 dependent on each other, but the same 3 lists in row2 dependent on row2 but not the previous row.
I have extracted data from multiple sheets and now want to mark this data as "Paid" and for the macro to go back and change the value in the original sheet on a row in column "AR" to "PAID. All the columns have the same data type in.
The extracted data contains the original sheet name and each row has a unique ID No to it.
I know I probably need to use INDEX and MATCH and then Offset to post value.
I cant seem to find the correct syntax for creating 14 validation lists using array members as the source of the named ranged. The validation lists are stored on a different worksheet, the Named Ranges are created fine, as are the ranges that are having the validation applied. The Syntax I am having a problem with is
Public Sub assignDVList(WSD As Worksheet, sListName As String) Dim DVListName As String DVListName = "DV" & sListName Application.Goto Reference:=sListName With Selection.Validation .Delete .Add Type:=xlValidateList, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator:= _ xlBetween, Formula1:="=" & DVListName
It is the Formula1:="=" & DVListName that is creating the headache. The sub is called as the array moves through the columns, using the header row as the Name for the Named Range, and the data Validation worksheet uses the same naming except it has DV in front.
I would like to combine List1 and List2 into a 3rd named range called List3. I was wondering if this were possible without using any additional cells/columns (i.e. I don't want to use Column C like in the example shown in the link above).
I have the following code to update a pivot table:
Code: Dim pt As PivotTable Application.EnableCancelKey = xlDisabled For Each pt In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("sheet1").PivotTables pt.ChangePivotCache ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Create _ (SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:="source!R4C1:R33443C55" _ , Version:=xlPivotTableVersion10)
the R33443 term is what will be changing, the columns and the starting row should stay the same. is there a way to instead of using R33443, to enable the range to be changed based on a cell value?
I have one source spreadsheet, where are columns NAME, DATE. I read these data by ADO to other spreadsheet, where I can change/delete data and then run macro for update data in source spreadsheet. The problem: In source spreadsheet is column "NAME" and column "DATE", with values e.g. "Joseph"; 1.1.1980. I read this data to other spreadsheet, then I delete in it value 1.1.1980. When I run macro Update, it messages error.
Sub UpdateItem ... .Fields.Item(1).value = activecell 'activecell value = "Joseph" If Not isempty(activecell.offset(0,1)) Then .Fields.Item(2).value = activecell.offset(0,1).value Else .Fields.Item(2).value = "" 'I tried Empty and 0 too but when I read data again then, it displays 0.1.1900, nothing works End If ... End Sub
It seems that in source spreadsheet has data in column "Date" format Date and when I try to update data in format String ("") in source spreadsheet by Update macro, it messages error. When I used
.Fields.Item(2).Value = Empty ' or .Fields.Item(2).Value = 0
after rereading data it displays 0.1.1900 What I want to get is that if the cell with date (in other spreadsheet) is empty, the cell in column Date in source spreadsheet after updating will be blank (contains no values).
I have a report that was created for 2005 that contains two worksheets: a "source data" worksheet and a " pivot table" worksheet. I cleared out the 2005 data in the "source data" worksheet and replaced it with 2006 data...after this I refreshed the Pivot Table and everything seemed fine. When looking at the file size I noticed that it was almost twice its original size....upon further investigation I found that the Pivot Table was internally holding onto the old source data (the "Show" functionality of the rows/columns in the table lists the 2005 row/column headers as well as the 2006 headers....even though no data from 2005 is shown in the Pivot Table).
Does anyone know how to purge the old data from the internal Pivot Table memory?
I hope this is enough information....let me know if you need more.
