# Change Formula Without Changing The Reference

Dec 5, 2006
I have a set of formula in column C to H. I have set a formula as sheet1+sheet2+ like this for about 24 sheets with different reference of cells. I want to change in the entire range of cells C to H as =sum(sheet1:sheet24!b04). The reference what I have mentioned changes in different cells.

i want to change the table_array reference without changing formula in every worksheet. I tried using a new worksheet and naming it the same as what is referenced in vlookup table_array but it messed up all the data.

I have to use a different worksheet every month so need a way to change reference OR how to change array data without messing up the worksheets with the vlookup

A 'Days Attended' cell (N8) and a 'Days Absent' cell (O8). N8 needs to count the number of "Present" values there are on another worksheet. The other worksheet has dates across the top and names down the side.

When i use

=COUNTIF("Attendance!C9:Z9", "Present"),

and the next date comes along the formula changes to

=COUNTIF("Attendance!D9:AA9", "Present")

ie. the reference moves a column across - the new date's absent or present is not counted. Using =COUNTIF(INDIRECT("Attendance!C9:Z9"), "Present"). is no good because when i add a new name i need the row reference to move down as a row is inserted. ie. both person's formulas count the same row. So, my question: I need the columns to stay the same - C:Z (leyway for future dates) and the rows to change as i insert or delete people from the system.

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.

I am trying to run a quick format on a table that includes adding a Vlookup formula. The formula references a table that comes out of a pivot table, so it has a different name every time. If I look up the new generated table name, and change it below it works. Is there a way to capture the table name and insert it into the formula? Or possibly rename the table to the same thing everytime (which I think is going to cause some conflict).

I have a function Sum('1st Qtr:4th Qty'!AW1) in row 1 and dragged down 129 rows so the last reads Sum('1st Qtr:4th Qty'!AW129). If I insert a row the cell reference does not increment automatically below the insert location. How do I get it to do so. The insertion occurs when I run a macro.

I have this If statement on one of the cells

=IF(A7=AQ6,AQ32,IF(A7=AR6,AQ32,IF(A7=AS6,AQ32,IF(A7=AT6,AQ30,IF(A7=AU6,AQ29,IF(A7=AV6,AQ33,IF(A7=AW6 ,AQ33,IF(A7=AX6,AQ31,""))))))))

If I want to change only A7 to A8, A9, A10 without changing the other parts of the formula, how do I do that. I need to copy this formula in about 300 rows.

I was using the formula below which was working fine for copying across 20 columns and down however many rows, but now the requirements have changed to 90 columns. I have tested this out with the 90 columns but the Indirect function is bogging down the spreadsheet with the constant recalculating.

=IFERROR(INDIRECT("'"&COLUMNS($A$1:A$1)&"'!P"&ROWS($A$1:$A8)),"")

I rearranged the formula to the one below, but how can I have the reference to the sheet name changed as in the formula above without using the Indirect?

=IFERROR(INDEX('1'!$A$8:$AT$115,MATCH($A3,'1'!$A$8:$A$115,0),MATCH("PAT",'1'!$A$7:$AT$7,0)),"")

The sheet reference will change from '1' through '90'.

I have been using the following formula to do conditional summing over multiple worksheets:

=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(INDIRECT("'"&$AB$2:$AB$13&"'!b3:b39"),$B16,INDIRECT("'"&$AB$2:$AB$13&"'!c3:c39")))

The formula works fine, but when I drag it to the next column c3:c39 stays the same. How do I get that reference to change when I drag the formula over multiple columns.

When I copy the formula to another cell, It doesn't show the result. But when I double click on it, it works. For example

there r values in A1 as "john" & A2 as "Jack". I write formula =A1 in cell B1. It shows "John". Now I copy this formula to B2, it shows "john" instead of "Jack" . When I double click on B2 & enter, it shows "Jack".

I have a table of consolidated data that consists of the date at which certain payments occur and their amounts that other sheets need to reference to perform calculations. I am currently using the formula below to put the data under the correct date column. =INDEX(ImportedData!$B$10:$DB$10,MATCH(B3,ImportedData!$B$4:$DB$4,FALSE)). The problem that I have is that the INDEX range, currently B10:DB10, will need to change depending on the number of files that are consolidated ie with more files the row will increase.

how I can have a formula repeat down a column five times before it changes to another formula? For example. Say on tab 1 I have a list of products. On tab two I have five codes that repeat down the page over and over again. On tab two next to the repeating codes I need to repeat product one 5 times and then skip to product 2 on the 6th row and repeat five times and then skip to product 3 on the 11th row and repeat 5 times and so on?

the number next to the beam will be variable.

the number of "beam" rows is vaiable

my thoughts where to do a find"beam" and refernce the cells address the create formulas off those points but dont have the skill to code this

I am trying to cut/paste a row of formulas in my spreadsheet. The problem is that I want some of the referenced cells in the formula to stay CONSTANT and not increment on each new row. In this example, I want the references to row 17 (F17,E17) to increment (E18,E19,...), but I want the "G7" reference to remain hard coded (as G7) on each row I paste (because that is where my master value is). (The formula is working fine) =IF((F17>0),IF((F17<=G7),E17,0),0)

how to change the formula below which is referencing an internal worksheet, to a forumula that will reference an external worksheet that is located in an excel document on the G: Drive.

=SUMPRODUCT(--(1210laradj_v_2009!F2:F65536="HMO-ALT SELECT"),--(ISNUMBER(MATCH(1210laradj_v_2009!AO2:AO65536,{3,5,9,12,37,39,46,47,54,73,74,75,76,77,78},0))))

So what it's doing is totaling the counts in the 1210laradj worksheet that match columns HMO-ALT SELECT as well as the numbers 3,5,9 etc.

Well now these worksheets will be on a seperate excel spreadsheet located on a network drive, so I am trying to figure out how I can fix this.

I tried adding it in like so, but it fails.

=SUMPRODUCT(--('G:ROC-CLAIMSAudit ResultsProvider infomonthly statsReproc'd claims2011ProductionCounts[0111rpt2235_laradj_v.xls]0111laradj_v_2009'!F2:F65536="HMO-ALT SELECT"),--(ISNUMBER(MATCH(1210laradj_v_2009!AO2:AO65536,{3,5,9,12,37,39,46,47,54,73,74,75,76,77,78},0))))

I'm using the formula =SUMIF(F18:F18,"LY",G18:G18), =SUMIF(F18:F18,"KT",G18:G18), and so on.

I want to change the range to: =SUMIF(F7:F18,"LY",G7:G18), =SUMIF(F7:F18,"KT",G7:G18), and so on.

I can do it manually, but it's 20 rows.

Is there a way where i can change the formula range on the first and copy it down, without also copying the initials, (etc. "LY") ?

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.

Is there an easy way to drag all the references to a cell in a formula quickly e.g If i have a formula like this is;

=IF(A1>0, A1+1,A1-1)

and want to drag all the references to the cell A1 to another cell in one go as opposed to one at a time?

I have a list of pricing and I want to be able to change the text of cell, say "D1", which says "Standard" to say "Premium" and all the formulas would change in accordance. The "Standard" pricing would be, Starting D2, "=C2*.3" and I want them all to go to "Premium" pricing which would be formula "=C2*.35".

What would be the best method of creating this function or formula?

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

1 Task___________Trigger_____________Days_____Due Date

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?

I have a file that summarizes data by country and by month but then another file with a yearly summary. I need to pull in the same cell references for each month but using each tab's name: 'Jan' tab, 'Feb' tab etc. The problem is every time I tell it to find/replace the tab name, I have to select the file from its location in a browsing box every time. I have also tried the indirect formula without much luck and because I also had to add all the month summary tabs to the original file to get the indirect formula to work. I would rather keep both files separate.

How do I copy over formulas in the Jan column and change the tab reference to the Feb tab for the Feb column without having to change things 200 times for each countries data?

I was wondering whether there is an easy way to change a formula containing a named range back into it's original cell reference in VB. For example I have a cell saying =cogs2008/revenue2008 and I want to change it back into =A2/A3. Any ideas?

I have a range named as follows in a formula:

BaseCase!$O:$O

I have a data validation from which the user can choose another tab.

So, how do I change the reference above to:

TabName!$O:$O

so that TabName refers to the text string in cell B2 (data val. box)

I tried to use TEXT to no avail. I imagine there is a simple solution, but I am at a loss.

INDIRECT perhaps?

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.

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.

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.
