Changing Hard Coded Column References To Variable References

Oct 22, 2009

I have a number of statements within the Sheet Event Code (Excel 2007). Three times lately I have added a column and had to go back into the code and find all of the references that needed changing to reflect the new column.

I have been working on this for a couple of days and even tried EE, but to no success.

I have read that Defined Names / Constants should be used as often as possible, but even trying that, the VBA code errors out or "hangs up". Even within Bill Jalen's book (VBA and Macros 2007), there is nothing that addresses this, especially using Intersect.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rng As Range

On Error GoTo mEnd
Set rng = Sheets("Log").[F14:F10000]
If Not Intersect(rng, Target) Is Nothing Then
If Target = "" Then
With Sheets("Log")

Converting Absolute References To Relative References In Formulas?

Feb 10, 2014

I set up formulas to count text characters in a range of cells. I'm tracking attendance and payments for a small yoga studio.

All I need to do is count "Y"s for prepaid attendance and "DI"s for drop-ins. I have the formulas working but they are absolute so inserting a row will break my sheet.

Structured References And With Cell References I Get A Column Of Zeros

Nov 25, 2007

It is suppose to be that if the employee is "FT" and has worked >=4 years the return is 15. But if the employee is FT and has worked 2 years but less than 4 years then it is suppose to return 10 (these are days off) Or if the employee is FT and has worked 1 year, but less than 2 then it should return 5 days off. And all the others in the column get no days off.

I have tried to do it with structured references and with cell references I get a column of zeros!

I have a need to match a reference cell to a list of cells. How do I get it to match the exact contents of the reference cell, not just whichever is closest?
I'm attaching the sheet, it's important that the contents of A13 match a string in the AG column exactly or return a null or "none" or whatever.

Change MSQuery References

Jan 13, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that queries another spreadsheet, using MSQuery. The query is of a named range on another workbook. What I am trying to do is change the workbook reference, to another similar workbook, with the same range name. MSQuery is not easily letting me do this. I figured there was a way to simply change the file that the created table (in MSQuery) is using. There doesn't seem to be a way to do this.

The named range is "data." This is what the SQL view looks like: ...

References Change When Importing Data

Jul 18, 2006

This issue is similar to absolute/relative references, but it's related to the data being referenced, not the cells doing the referencing. If I have a call the references cell A3 then I insert a row above row 3 (making the original A3 cell now A4), my reference automatically changes to A4. How can I get it to stay at A3 no matter what happens?

This may sound like an odd request, but I reference a bunch of cells on a worksheet. This sheet retrieves data from a database which changes regularly. The changes that it receives are not just updated in the cells, but rather the rows are deleted and reinserted changing all my references to this sheet. For example, say I import data and it fills cells A1 to A20 and I make a reference to A15. If I change the data that is imported and the data now only fills cells A1 to A10, the reference to A15 is now set to #REF since it actually clears all cells from A1 to A20 and then reinserts new data.

Excel 2007 :: Change Source Workbook For All External References At Same Time But Avoid Browsing?

Jan 7, 2013

Need to create Working order (in Excel 2007) for filling machine in my factory. Working order is changeable from day to day and the deference is product quantity. Product quantity in working order [File - Working order] is changing according to the each sales plan [7-Jan-13, 8-Jan-13] - (File Working order is Linked to the appropriate sales plan in this case - [7-Jan-13]).

Anyway, I need to change the source workbook "sales plan" from [7-Jan-13] to [8-Jan-13] by changing source workbook name in red cell [File - Working order] and not to browsing location?

All source workbooks [sales plan 7-Jan-13, 8-Jan-13]are at the same location in the same folder, only difference is the source workbook names. So, is it possible to change source workbook name (File - Working order - red cell) for all external references (File - Working order - green cells) at the same time, and avoid annoying browsing?

How To Nest References

Jul 31, 2009

What I'm wanting to do is essentially use a reference to update yet another reference.

In more detail, I want to retrieve a value on a worksheet and use that value to alter yet another reference to another worksheet.

For example, I want to retrieve a value (let say its 16 from either a local cell or a cell on another worksheet) and then retrieve yet another value from another worksheet based upon that value (lets say the worksheet I would want is then "Subject 16").

I've attempted various nesting formats of the typical reference formula but obviously have had no luck. Would I need to use VBA or is there a simple solution that I am missing? If I do have to use VBA how should I go about doing this?

Circular References

Aug 25, 2008


and i wanted to divide these all by 4.

I can do this by clicking on a cell OTHER than one of those four above, and do:

=A1/4 (if 15.2 was A1) and copy that formula down.

But then I have the originals AND the new ones in separate columns.

I want to just be able to divide those original numbers by 4 without resorting to using other cells, but if I do =A1/4 on A1 itself it says that i have made a "circular reference"

SAP Connection - Which References

Sep 7, 2006

I'm trying to connect to SAP R/3, and I think I'm not sure which references (Tools --> References) I'm supposed have checked.

All I want to do for now is the following:

Dim sapConn As Object
Set sapConn = CreateObject("SAP. Functions")

Unfortunately, I am getting a "Run-time error '-2147024770 (8007007e)': Automation error. The specified module could not be found."

I have read somewhere random on the internet that I should add "SAP:Remote Function Call: COM Support 1.0 Type Library" which links to the SAPGui Provided library librfc32.dll. However, this alone doesn't seem to work...

Warning Of Invalid References?

Jul 28, 2014

Running a worksheet with vba, at the start of the code I turn warnings off and at the very end of the code I turn them back on.When the routines complete a warning is raised:

A formula in this worksheet contains one or more invalid references.

Verify that your formulas contain a valid path, workbook, range name, and cell reference.

When I run Error Checking everything comes up clean.

Clicking on "Show Formulas" shows no formulas for there are no formulas on the sheet to show, just a chart, and clicking "Show Formulas" just turns my dates into serial numbers and screws up the display of the two comboboxes, messing the fonts and drop-down arrows, and since closing and reopening didn't revert the comboboxes back to normal I will now have to blow them away and resurrect them. I also see Show Formulas also messed up my command buttons. nice...

The only way I find to avoid the error is to turn Warnings OFF at the start of the charting routine and NEVER turn it back on.

I made certain that none of my names had any errors in them. Everything looks proper. So what next?

I fear something will create an error for me now along the lines of Murphy's Law

External References That Should Be Internal

Mar 1, 2007

I update files monthly and save them each month with a new name (eg. Jan, Feb, etc.).

In the file I have a reference from one tab to another tab within the same file. So every time I re-save this file with a new name, it should still reference the cell in the other tab - same file.

BUT on 2 occasions this reference changed to an "external" reference to the previous month's file.

I've been doing this every month for over 2 years and this problem has only happened 2 times. I know others that have experienced this, but nobody knows what caused it.

Does anyone know what would cause this? The biggest problem is that I may not notice this has happened for a long time.

One other thing I might add. I use an older version of Excel (2000). I share these files with other people who may have newer versions (I'm not sure who has what). Can sharing these files with others over a network system have something to do with this? Can opening "read only" when someone else is in the file and then saving as a copy do this?

Flexible Cell References

Oct 9, 2008

I want to do a search for the amount of people of a certain age in a column, but I want to be able to vary the amount of cells I look in. So first I might want to look for people aged 15 in A3:A35 and then in A3:A55 to see if there is a difference.

Now the optimal way to do this, in my opinion, would be to have a reference that looks like A3:A(B1) and then have the number of the last cell I want to look in in B1, in this case either 35 or 55.

References By Using Paths To Other Workbooks

is it possible to use references and concatenate them together that they are still references?

i have in:

A1: 'C:Infonic[file2.xls]sheet2'

A1: test

what i need is in sheet2 of file1

the value of file2.xls!sheetY!A1 = test
the problem is that i need to use the path to file2!sheet2 of the cell A1 in sheetX

is it possible to use sheetXA1 together with sheetYA1 as reference in sheet 2 so that i get back test as value.

Relative Hyperlink References

Jan 24, 2010

I suspect there's a simple answer to this but I've looked and can't find it: In Excel 2003, when I add a hyperlink to another file and close/reopen my workbook, the link is saved as relative to the current workbook. So if the main workbook is moved or, in my case, when I use VBA to copy and email the sheet with the hyperlinks, the links are broken.

References Goes Wrong After Sorting

Feb 18, 2010

I have a problem with my references when sorting in excel. I have been searching for the problem, but did not found a useful solution.
I'm using excel 2003.

Let me try to explain my problem with a simple exampel.

I have a column with numbers and one with formulas pointing at these.
2 =A1
4 =A2
3 =A3

Now I want to sort column A, and the column B should keep pointing at the original number. So I want this:
2 =A1
3 =A3
4 =A2

But I get this:
2 =A1
3 =A2
4 =A3

This output is what I would expect if I used absolut reference($).

Using offset(B1;0;-1) will work, but I cannot use this, since I will add/delete rows and the reference is not neccessarily next to it. Plus it can be a rather large sheet.

I cannot use dynamically name definition either, because it is intended for other users, and this will be too much work for them. What I basically need is a simple formula they can enter.

My sorting is done via a VBA macro, so if there is anything I can do through macro/VBA that will be okay as well, since I can do this without the user seeing it.
