Changing Source Material From Sheet To Sheet?

May 12, 2014

I have been working on a workbook that uses as a source information on Sheet 1.

Sheet 1

Each item reports a number of different details from column A to column BY.

Each row is for a different item.

25 rows of information.

Sheet 2

This is my master formula sheet, the one I've been using to create the page that reports and formulates information on a single item. The source for this sheet is taken from the cells in Sheet1!Row2.

Now that I have the sheet pretty much finished, I want to paste the same report on each succeeding page for a total of 25 sheets. I can copy Sheet2 and paste into each successive sheet, but then I need to change every single formula so that where it said AT2 it changes to AT3, where it was H2, H3, etc., from A to BY.

Problem: Can I use something that will automatically take the information for succeeding sheets and take as its source the succeeding row from the source page?

I don't know that I'm describing that sufficiently, so:

Sheet 3 would take as its source Sheet1, row 3.
Sheet 4 would take as its source Sheet1, row 4.
Sheet 5 would take as its source Sheet1, row 5.
Sheet 6 would take as its source Sheet1, row 6.

Etc., etc.

In the past I used the find/replace function, but this sheet seems way too complicated for that. As an example, one cell alone on my master sheet is


so I would need to change S2 to S3 everywhere it appears, but there are probably more than a hundred places on the sheet that I'd have to manually change 2s to 3s, etc., for 25 sheets, which is why I'm wondering if there isn't a better way than going cell by cell, sheet by sheet.

Changing Value In One Sheet Based On Value In Another?

Apr 22, 2013

A workbook that has a main sheet, and a few other sheets that main data is copied to. The main sheet is a complete list of work, the other sheets are split down to each machine we use here, to keep track of machine capacity.

What I want Excel to do:

Each works order has a number of hours attached to it (Which is manually entered on each sheet). Once a week a button will be clicked and the VB code needs to look at the different machine sheets, and do some kind of lookup between the works order number on the main sheet. If it says "Complete" in column H on the main sheet then it needs to put the number of hours to zero on the machine's sheet.

Changing Value - New Value Goes Into The Next Available Cell On Another Sheet?

Jul 31, 2014

I have a cell that is being populated by a formula. Is it possible that every time the value of that cell changes, the new value goes into the next available cell on another sheet?

To simplify things:
Sheet1 A1=5 Sheet2 A1=5
Sheet1 A1=6 Sheet2 A1=5 A2=6
Sheet1 A1=9 Sheet2 A1=5 A2=6 A3=9

And so on.

Prevent Changing Of Sheet Name

Mar 16, 2007

I have been searching for a way to prevent a user from changing a worksheet name. I ran into some code from the post below (see link) but I find that the code lets the user change the name and save the changed name of a sheet; only when the user selects a different sheet does it change the name back to the set name (sname) from the code.

I'm sure there must be a way to make this happen without deactivating the sheet, but I can't figure it out. Is there some other sort of event that could cause this to happen.

Event Macro Changing Sheet Name

May 23, 2009

I have a worksheet called "Roster" with a list of names from D7:D17 each person on the list has a separate sheet that is called by their name. the sheets are not linked up. the names were just manually typed into the list and into each sheet name.

If any name is changed on the list on "Roster!D7:D17" i would like the sheet that has that name to change as well.

This is the code that i was sent, but i do not know enough about VBA code to understand exactly what is happening, thus i cannot diagnose the problem. I placed the following code into the page "Roster" (by right-clicking and then pasting the code) then i closed, but nothing happens. I can mess with the code and get an error message. but that is about it. error messages usually say something about the debugger, or runtime error or something.

there is the
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
OldVal(0) = OldVal(1)
OldVal(1) = Target(1).Value
End Sub

Changing A Chart Source Sheet

I now want to copy these graphs to another sheet (Graphs B) which links to a different data sheet (Data B). The data is in the same layout format etc.

The problem is that the find-replace function will not replace the sheet name in the charts series formula from Data A to Data B

Is there an easy way to change the source sheet for the new graphs?

Inserting Row Without Changing Reference Cell On Another Sheet

Jul 3, 2014

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?

Adjust Formula To Allow For Changing Sheet Reference.

Nov 22, 2009

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 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?


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

Name Sheet Automatically Based On Changing Cell

Aug 20, 2008

In my sheet called summary I have the names of the rest of the tabs in the book in cells B5 to B34. We want to be able to change the names of the tabs by changing their respective cell on the summary tab. So “sheet1” corresponds to B5, “sheet2” to B6, “sheet3” to B7, etc.. So if I change the name in B5 to say “APPLE” I want the tab for sheet1 to change to APPLE. When I change B10 from “sheet6” to “Lemon” I want sheet6 to be titled “Lemon”.

For Loop For Changing Formulae Based On Other Sheet

Jul 27, 2006

I want to write a For loop so that it checks the range G2:R2 of Sheet1 for the first non-zero cell in that range. When it comes to the first non-zero cell, it will change the formula of A2 on Sheet2 to have the SUM of that non-zero cell and the next two cells to the right. Example:

G2 = ""
H2 = ""
I2 = ""
J2 = "3"
K2 = "4"
L2 = "8"
M2 = "9"
N2 = "2"
O2 = "5"
P2 = "3"
Q2 = "11"
R2 = "7"

A2 = SUM('Sheet1'!J2:L2) --->"15"

Lookup Based On Variable/Changing Sheet Name

May 23, 2008

I'm trying to figure out a way to lookup a value based on a conditional sheet name. I'm finding it difficult to explain in words what I'm trying to do, so I'm going to try and describe it in a miniature example of my spreadsheet. I apologize if this is going against forum rules, this seems like the quickest way to get my question across:

The following is the way my spreadsheet's first page is set up:

ID Apr-08 Mar-08 Feb-08

The column labels depend on another table, which changes monthly.
The rest of the sheets (24 of them, labled "200804", "200803", etc) look like this:

ID $ amount Date paid

I have another table upon which the na

I'm trying to return the "Date Paid" value for each ID for each month. Each month, however, more data arrives, and the labels change. I have several dozen spreadsheets formatted in this way, and I'm trying to avoid having to change the vlookup (or other formula) manually each month for each sheet. Is there a way to make the vlookup depend on a table?

This is essentially what my formula looks like right now for cell A2:
=VLOOKUP($A2,'200804'!$A$1:$G$10000, 3, FALSE)

If I could replace '200804' with a cell reference, that would be ideal. I haven't been able to figure out how (if possible); I tried experimenting with index sheets but that went nowhere.

Changing Column References On 1 Sheet For Automated Entry

Jan 7, 2007

I have formulas in wksheet #1 going down 20 columns (they are all the same formulas). On wksheet #2, I need to understand how to switch all column references in only one column to another (from wksheet #1) to show different sums. Clear as mud? The way I want to do this is by having one cell on wksheet #2 where I change a number from 1 to 20. This in essence would be the column heading in wksheet #1.

*There are more formulas but for the purpose here I'll use 3 for each Wksheet

In wksheet #1 I have
C24 is =SUM(C14*C15,C16*C17,C18*C19,C20*C21,C22*C23)*12
C55 is =IF(B66=0,"",C7/B66)
C56 is =IF(C11=0,"",C7/C11)

Sheet Indirection. Refer To Sheets With Changing Names

Sheet1. Range(NamedRange)

however in recreating a new workbook (to reduce bloat), the sheet-numbering has changed... to avoid having to mess around adjusting things again, I was wondering if it's possible to do some sort of indirection... something similar to

#define SHEET_SC_CONFIG Sheet1
#define SHEET_CUSTOMER Sheet2

'and then use these throughout the code....

(cannot reference by sheet name, as end user may change these)

VBA Select Multiple Sheets Of Varied/Changing Sheet Names

May 18, 2006

How can I select sheets in a workbook based on the premise that the sheetname does not have the letter "Q" in it? New to forum, so apologies if format is not kosher.
I have a group of 50+ workbooks which are all set up in the following format:

-Contains 30+ sheets.
-Sheet names are varied, but follow a pattern. I try to keep the sheet names consistant on all workbooks so that it is easier to reference, but other users make this impossible.
-However, I managed to keep two things consistant: There are two categories of sheets. In one group all sheetnames have a "Q" in them and in the other group all sheetnames DON'T have a "Q" in them.

Here is my problem: I need to run a macro to perform retative tasks on the GROUP OF SHEETS WITHOUT A "Q". To begin the macro I need to select these sheets and copy them to a new workbook, but since the actual sheetnames are varied, I am having trouble coming up with a flexible way of selecting sheets. The closest I have come is using a IF ... LIKE ... THEN statement, but I can only get it to work to select the sheets with a "Q" in the name and not the opposite.

Copy / Paste Frequently Changing Data From 4 Sheets Into One Master Data Sheet

Jul 4, 2012

I have a workbook that includes 4 seperate sheets that are used to record time and expenses for 4 members of staff. I want to write a macro to select the data I need from each sheet and colaberate together in a 'data' sheet so I can combine all the info to run time and expense reports per client showing combination of all time and expense incurred from all 4 staff.

I have named cell ranges in each of the 4 time-sheets. I proceed to record a macro, select the first named range, copy and paste into my data sheet, do a control home then control down arrow, then one more down arrow to get to the first blank cell and repeat the process for all four time-sheets.

This works until I add a new line and then the data will only appear for the last time-sheet (last row of data).

Changing Cell Background Color In Another Sheet Based On Cell Value

Jun 13, 2013

I am working on a workbook with 200+ sheets and an index linking to each of the sheets. On the sheets there is a cell containing the results of calculations and I need the cell referencing the sheet in the index to change background colors depending if the calculations value is greater or less than 0. I currently have working code that also changes the tab color of each sheet depending on the value, but i am trying to add the index cell background change functionality into that. also, the index listings is subject to change. my working code is


Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Range("d34").Value < 0 Then
Me.Tab.ColorIndex = 3
ElseIf Range("D34").Value > 0 Then
Me.Tab.ColorIndex = 4


and the code i am trying to get working is


Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rngX As Range
Set myRange = Worksheets("Index").Range("A1:A500").Find(Range("C2").Text, lookat:=xlPart)
' the C2 is the reference the title that would be on the index
If Range("d40").Value < 0 Then


I keep getting the runtime error '1004: application-defined error or object-defined error the thing is, i ran the cell background changing code in a normal macro before integrating it in my other worksheet code first and it worked fine. I have a little code experience, though not much in vba and I am unsure what the issue is. if there is another better way to accomplish what I'm tring to do, that would also be fine.
