I have a master summary sheet that contains all the required information for 21 other worksheets. Each row contains the information for a single sheet. I have linked all the relative cells to the first sheet but would like create a formula that changes the row reference in each of the links rather than the tedious task of updating each individual link in every sheet.
I have tried using the indirect function but constantly get errors returned, the basic formula i have been using is: =INDIRECT("Summary"!C&,X1)
'C' is the column in the summary sheet that the information should be taken and 'X1' is the cell in the worksheet that will define what row the data should be taken e.g in one sheet the reference for that specific cell will be C5 and the next C6 and so on.
I need to copy and paste data from the internet into Sheet 2, but it's not in the correct order, so I must swap column A and column B in Sheet 2 only. The problem with this is that when I swap them, the linked cells swap as well, which destroys my data on Sheet 1 columns C-Z.
Is there a way that I can keep the cells on Sheet 1 completely static, so that it only reads the data I put into the corresponding cell on Sheet 2?
Or maybe, is there a way I can just swap the cell information in Sheet 2 without messing around with the formatting? Just a complete swap of A1>B1 and B1>A1?
I am trying to chart data from a single cell that is changing over time. The cell is linked to another software program that provides its value. I would like to be able to chart the changes in its value either every time it changes or on some time interval (i.e. every 3 minutes).
I'm working on a project that has a master workbook and multiple files that link to the master. The master workbook calculates values based off of a ton of information: account info, pricing info, quantity info, etc. It is a pretty massive excel file, but that is not where the problem arises.
The files that I am trying to link contain relevant information for specific accounts, including prices. The cells that contain product prices are linked to the master workbook. Example: Destination file, lets call this "Company A", Source file, lets call this "Master". In Company A's spreadsheet there is a column that contains pricing specific to that company. This pricing comes from the Master. Most of the pricing is in column C. What I have been doing is copying the relevant cell in the master and "Past Special, Paste Link" in Company A. I do this for every product in Company A's worksheet.
The goal of this is to automate pricing, so that when there are price changes or account changes, one would only have to update the master and all the separate account worksheets would populate with the correct prices. The method I've been using was working perfectly, until I had to edit the master file. I had to insert and delete a few rows from the master file. I work in excel quite often and link cells alot, so I figured that the linked cells would update to the new format, but they aren't. Ex. If a cell in Company A's worksheet is referencing F46 in the master and I delete row 44, I would like the cell to now reference F45, because that is the cell with the correct information. But instead Company A's worksheet isn't adjusting for the deleted row and is still referencing F46.
The only solutions I have found for this issue are to either have all the linked files open when I am editing the master. But seeing as there are almost 25 files, that doesn't seem very practical. The other solution is to never insert or delete rows, just to add on to the end of the master spreadsheet.
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
Using the developer tab I inserted an Active X combo box. Under properties I referenced a 'linked cell' that I want the data to appear in. This box works great as long as I keep the sheet open. Once I save and close the workbook and re-open, that reference is lost. It shows #REF! in that field. Why does it lose the reference? I have tried to reference a cell on the same sheet as well as a cell in a different sheet and it keeps the sheet name but not the individual cell.
I have three sheets - Actual( which has actual figures from Jan - Dec), Budget ( figures from Jan - Dec) and a Summary sheet ( which is just the summary for the current month, say July and compares the budget VS Actual). Every month i need to change the summary sheet to the next months set of figures, say Augusts etc etc.
Currently i've been using find and replace, and changed the formula to the correct months column - but its a rather large spreadsheet( its a management accounts pack and has many many more sheets that link up - like lasts years comparison etc etc) Is there any easy way of linking ( without VBA) or anything complex, so that each month i can change my data easily?
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 create a formula that references information on two different sheets, but i want it to show me the values that are newly created when a new row is inserted. The two current sheets are Master and Data.
I have a formula on Master that reads ='Data'!$K$3 to reference the value on Sheet data in cell K3. When a new row is inserted showing me the current readings, I want the Master sheet to show me the NEW value in cell K3 on the data sheet. The problem is, the insert of a row moves the formula on the Master sheet to now be ='Data'!$K$4. How can i STOP the insertion of a row from changing the formula so i continue to see the value i need?
I have a function Sum('1st Qtr:4th Qty'!AW1) in row 1 and dragged down 129 rows so the last reads Sum('1st Qtr:4th Qty'!AW129). If I insert a row the cell reference does not increment automatically below the insert location. How do I get it to do so. The insertion occurs when I run a macro.
how I can have a formula repeat down a column five times before it changes to another formula? For example. Say on tab 1 I have a list of products. On tab two I have five codes that repeat down the page over and over again. On tab two next to the repeating codes I need to repeat product one 5 times and then skip to product 2 on the 6th row and repeat five times and then skip to product 3 on the 11th row and repeat 5 times and so on?
I'm preparing an accounting model for my office use. How to solve the copying of formula to all other cells.
The detail is here:
Sheet 1: 1) I've entered a number 1000 in L2
Sheet 2: 1) I've entered a values in columns D,E,F,G 2) Calculations : at G2 : the formula is =D2*Sheet1!L2
The problem is when I Copy the formula in G2 through G3, G4, G5........... it changes to =D3*Sheet1!L3, =D4*ValidData!L4, =D5*ValidData!L5 and so on... but it should be =D3*Sheet1!L2, =D4*ValidData!L2, =D5*ValidData!L2, so that the L2 value shall be constant for calculations in all cells.
I have referenced data in two colums on a sheet A and B. Column A contains the latest data, each month i insert new column (moving column A to column B). However all of my references continue to follow the original data (eg will change from column A to column B). this happens despite using Absolute references. (=$A$1). Is there a way to lock these cell references to only ever display column A etc?
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)
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 looking to change the color of my text through a macro, which is fine. But I want to change the color according to a date key. So every time I update my date once a week, a new series is "blacked in". The series has the link already in it, I just need it to change color (to black) every time I update it.
I am trying to multiply a range of cells by a cell reference. The cells currently have hard coded values in them. I know with past special you can multiply a range of cells by a copied #. I want a similar function to that just instead of a copied cell its a cell reference. No VBA.
The situation is that I have created a workbook in a network folder: xprojectsexcelclientAApril umbers
The workbook links to a few other workbooks on the same network, but in the parent folder: xprojectsexcelclientAApril
The problem occurs when my colleagues have to updates the links in the main workbook, because they have not mapped the network drive in the same way as I have. The problem is NOT the prefix, but the fact that they have a more direct link to the network folder. My collages have mapped the folder like: xclientAApril Is there a way where I can make the links in the workbook, so they don't depend on the entire string, but only on the fact that it is in the parent folder?
I want to select a specific worksheet by it's VB name. In other words, if the sheet comes up as: Sheet3 (ESF) in the VB Editor, I would like to choose it using the Sheet3 designation. I can do it using the (ESF) designation using:
But I prefer to use Sheet3 so when the users change the name, the macro still works.
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 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 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.
I have over 9,000 rows of data. In column A, I have different values that I need to populate down to associate with values in other columns. I can't simply autofill all 9,000 cells in column A at once, because the values that need to be filled down change at irregular intervals.
My end goal is to be able to filter out values in column B to show their association with the value in column A, but I need column A fully populated.
So I need a way to fill A2:A7 with value from A1 (I don't care about B7 being empty, I can still have Martha in A7 with no adverse affects). But I need the fill to continue through 9,000+ rows where the number of rows to fill is inconsistent between value changes in column A (Martha-5, Sarah-3, Beth-4, Donna 3), and there are over 400 unique values in column A.
This is definitely more involved than I am familiar with, but any simple way for me to identify and list which of the 400 bakers made scones..
