# Changing Workbook That Is Looked Up On INDEX Function As Formula Dragged Down

Dec 13, 2013

I have a variety of different order forms in workbooks titled IT1314-0001, IT1314-0002, IT1314-0003...etc... They're all stored in the same location, but they need to be on different workbooks as each workbook is sent as an order form to a different organization, for that organization to fill in. All of the order forms have the same layout, but the user will input different information onto them.

In a summary workbook of all of these Order Forms, I need to be able to drag down an INDEX formula, such that the INDEX looks in a different workbook (the next workbook in the sequence) with each row. As you go down the rows, it should look like;

INDEX(‘[IT1314-0001.xlsPARTS A & B!\$D\$5:\$E\$5, 1, 1)
INDEX(‘[IT1314-0002.xlsPARTS A & B!\$D\$5:\$E\$5, 1, 1)
INDEX(‘[IT1314-0003.xlsPARTS A & B!\$D\$5:\$E\$5, 1, 1)
INDEX(‘[IT1314-0004.xlsPARTS A & B!\$D\$5:\$E\$5, 1, 1)

Can this be done without VBA?

## Stop Formula Changing Cell Reference But Change Sheet Number When Dragged?

Feb 8, 2010

need to do to the below code so that when i drag the formula down it changes the sheet number....sheet1, sheet2, sheet3 and so on but keeps the cell reference the same?

## Index Match - Formula Changing If Source Range Modified

Apr 24, 2014

I am trying to monitor the status of a cell on another sheet and autopopulate a cell depending on that information. The formula works well until I give the spreadsheet to a 3rd party and the formula ranges change after they paste new data to the source sheet. I have tried locking and password the formula cells but they change range regardless!

Here is the formula from the first cell.

[Code] ......

It scans for a number in an adjacent cell. If the number is present on the sheet 'Test', it autopopulates the cell with a string from the source sheet. The cell remains blank until there is data present.

If I cut data from row 6 and paste it to row 17, the formula cahnges itself to:

[Code] ........

How I can lock down this formula so that the ranges remain the same i.e. \$AT\$6:\$AT\$26, despite changes on the source sheet? I have tried F4 to toggle relative and absolute references and this has made no difference.

## Sum Across As Formula Dragged Down

Apr 1, 2008

From the title "Filling Down Formula From Source That Goes Horisontally" I hope that someone understands what I mean. If I try to autofill a formula where the source cells that I want to autofill is organised in an horisontal fashion instead of vertical fashion, then the autofill always goes in an vertical fashion. Is there a way to get around this, macro, formula?

## Formula Not Recalculating When Dragged

Aug 24, 2007

I have trouble using the =Concatenate() or =(A1&B1) to combine data in one cell. It will work for the first cell but then when I drag the equation it gives me the exact same result as the first cell. But when I click to look at the formula it looks good and when I hit Enter the cell reads the correct value. So I have to open each individual cell and hit enter. What is goin on here. I have attached a small example.

Also, sometimes I will type in a formula and hit enter and it just displays the formula. It does not return a value.

## Formula To Reference Different Worksheets When Copied/Dragged

Sep 21, 2006

My worksheet "Ledger" has a column of 1-31 days, with row headings of MC/Visa, Amex, Disc & Cash. I also have sheets "1-31" within the same workbook that contain the data I need under each heading. I can get the data for "Amex" in sheet "1" to appear in the first cell underneath "Amex" in the sheet "ledger" by typing the formula ='1'!\$B\$29.....

## Formula To Return Array To Use In Index / Match Function?

May 8, 2013

I need to find a way to find an array in a tab to use for an index/match function I have.

this is what i would normally use: =index(tab_array,match(\$a2, tab!\$a\$1:\$a\$1000,0),match(\$B\$1,tab!\$a\$1:\$zz\$1,0))

This formula would usually work fine when I know that within the tab, the array in which the row match is searching doesn't change. However, that array may change in the future, to say column H, without my knowing as it is a database that gets automatically populated from an upstream system.

Is there a way to search for an array within an index/match?

## Function/Formula To Reference Changing Rows

Aug 13, 2008

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.

## Using Macro To Add 1 To Cell That Is Looked Up

Jun 6, 2008

I have a table that will be frequently sorted. I would like to add a macro that will add 1 to a certain row. For example, say I had a macro button that was labeled "apple". When I click that macro, I want it to find the row in my table called apple and add 1 to it.

## Retrieve Adajcent Value From Looked Up Cell

Sep 4, 2009

I am trying to get a formula that will return the immediately adjacent value to a cell that is "lookup-ed". However, the Lookup cell is not in a constant column?
I tried Vlookup though this needs to specify a column, however i don't know the column until initial data is entered. if there's a formula that enables something along the lines of the 'thelookup cell plus one" that would likely work?

## Formula That Advances Column Number While Being Dragged Down Single Column?

Jan 14, 2014

I am creating a tool that is populating information off of another excel document and presenting the information in a different format then the data originally appears. Basically I am unsure how to create a formula, for example, in cell A1, that as I drag it down (A2, A3, etc) the column letter in the formula advances but the row number remains the same. In another words as the formula moves into cell A2, the "Sheet1!D3" changes to "Sheet1!E3", where as normally it would advance to "Sheet1!D4". I just started back up in excel, im sure this is way easier then I am making it seem but I have been unable to come up with a solution.

## Nesting Index / Match Function Within Vlookup Function?

Dec 3, 2013

let me start by saying that I know an example workbook would be useful here, but the part I'm struggling with is the [managementroster.xlsm] file, and there is A. no way I can release it to the internets and B. its so huge/complicated I couldn't even begin to reproduce a portion of it, scrubbed of data, and hope to maintain its functionality in a meaningful manner.

[Code]....

This formula checks a staff number on this spreadsheet, and then goes and looks at the staff number on the roster. Once found, it returns that staff members roster, but changes any manager codes in the MRC list to Mgr, and changes all other roster codes to Free.

I now need this formula, before altering roster codes to Mgr or Free, to only return codes that are a match for another table (or after really. I don't particularly care, so long as only codes are shown that match data from another table). I think an index/match function would do the trick, but this forumula is already at the edge of my excel ability, nesting another function within it is completey beyond me. The relevant cells for the index/match function would be:

This first Match function targets the column. \$E3 is the date required, \$BA\$1:\$DN\$1 is the range the dates are entered in
Match: Lookup value = \$E3
Lookup array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'\$BA\$1:\$DN\$1
match type = 0

This second Match function targets the row. \$A\$4 is the department name, \$B\$434:\$B\$452 is the range where all departments are entered

Match: Lookup value = \$A\$4
Lookup Array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'\$B\$434:\$B\$452
match type = 0

Index: array = \$BA\$434:\$DN\$452

So I think my final function is

[Code] .....

But I have absolutely NO idea where it would fit within my first formula, or how to code it so that my original formula only reproduces results that are found in both sheets, or anything.

## Vlookup With Changing Column Index Numbers

Sep 25, 2009

I've 2 worksheets, Summary and Sales. I need to get the total sales figure from the "Sales" worksheet onto the Summary worksheet. Sales data are pasted onto the worksheet monthly. Tried using vlookup but problem is, the column containing the total sales figure may vary and I need to update the vlookup formula. Another problem is that sometimes the Total sales (the lookup value) is not in the first column. Tried using the Index and Match combo but cannot get it to work. I've attached a simple mock up to hopefully illustrate my case better. I believe the experts in this forum should find this rather easy!

## Function/Formula To Determine If Workbook Open

May 16, 2008

how do you set a return value for a function in VBA? I've looked at examples of functions and I don't understand.

All I want to do is call a function to see if a workbook is open and have it return true or false. Here is the code I have, but it won't let me use go "Return isOpen" at the end like VB would! The IDE complains.

Function IsWorkBookOpen(ByVal name As String) As Boolean
Dim wBook As Workbook
Dim isOpen As Boolean

wBook = Workbooks(name)

If wBook Is Nothing Then
isOpen = False
Else
isOpen = True
End If

'I can't reutrn the value of is open?
Return isOpen

End Function

I've noticed other VBA functions I've looked at don't use "Return"....how does does the function return a value then?

## Prevent Cell Being Dragged

How can you prevent a cell which contains a validation list from being dragged?

## Changing Workbook Formulas To Reference New Workbook Name

Aug 6, 2012

I have a workbook "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy" and another workbook "Weekly Field Report \$\$\$-Master" The "Weekly Field Report \$\$\$-Master" workbook has all the formulas that pull data from the "Weekly Field Reports-Master Copy" workbook and populates a financial report of that week's field unit production.

When I save the "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy" workbook to a new name "Weekly Field Report Job #1" and then save the "Weekly Field Report \$\$\$-Master Copy" workbook to a new name "Weekly Field Report \$\$\$-Job #1" is there a way to automatically change the formulas in the "Weekly Field Report \$\$\$-Job #1" workbook to now pull data from the "Weekly Field Report Job #1" workbook instead of the "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy" workbook???

Currently I am manually changing the formulas in the new workbook "Weekly Field Report \$\$\$-Job #1" to reference the data in the new workbook "Weekly Field Report Job #1". Otherwise the formulas pull the data from the "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy".

## Check Whether All The Formulas Are Dragged Down Correctly

Nov 16, 2009

How to create a macro tool to check whether all the formulas are dragged down correctly? Because someone may accidentally make some changes to some cells.

For example,
A1=IF(NOT(\$B1), -SUMIF(PCAInfo'!\$C1, AQ\$10:AQ\$150),0)
A2=IF(NOT(\$B2), -SUMIF(PCAInfo'!\$C2, AQ\$10:AQ\$150),0)
A3=IF(NOT(\$B4), -SUMIF(PCAInfo'!\$C1, AQ\$10:AQ\$150),0)
A4=IF(NOT(\$B4), B4-SUMIF(PCAInfo'!\$C4, AQ\$10:AQ\$150),0)
The code could test out
A2 is correct,
A3 and A4 is not correct.

## Increment Text List As Dragged Down

Nov 13, 2006

I am trying to find a short way of creating a list using the drag down tool. Normally this isn't a problem when the numbers are at the end of the data, however they are in the middle so the drag down tool does not like it and will only copy the same data into the cells below.

Eg. the list I am creating goes as follows:

Dicso 80Gb: Cyber Records Barcodes: CR 001. ai
Disco 80Gb: Cyber Records Barcodes: CR 002.ai
Disco 80Gb: Cyber Records Barcodes: CR 003.ai

...and so on.

How do I create the formula to recognise that I want the number within the text to increase by 1 each time?

## Userform :: Menu Image Is 'dragged' Across The Screen

Oct 8, 2007

I currently have a VB macro written where under certain conditions user forms are shown for the user to select options, display messages, etc. When any of these forms are on the screen, and someone drags them, the menu image is 'dragged' across the screen. Is there a way from preventing this from happening?

## Index Function With No Row Entry

Feb 13, 2009

My formula is: = INDEX (Lastsales,\$022,\$S\$5)

## VLOOKUP Or INDEX Function?

Jan 27, 2010

I tried with the VLookup, and HLookup and neither one worked for me. I have a reference table with all the data, and then input sheet where I want to bring this data by using one of the excel function. ie. When I enter office name on the top of the input page, I would like the Tax ID # in cell C3 to fill in using the excel function from the data on the reference tab. Same with cell C14 & C15. see attached for an example.

## Using Index Match Function?

Mar 24, 2013

I've been working on a payroll program for my small biz. I'm close to done BUT...When I use the Index Match function in a cell it works great. However I need to copy it down a column to work for pay periods going forward. When I copy it down of course it puts zeros or N/A.

Columns:

Gross Fed FICA Medicare State Net
F G H I J K

Gross is user input. FICA Medicare State and Net are simply calculated on the sheet. But to get Fed Income tax I use the Index Match function and it works perfectly. The rows increment properly with each new user input.

My question: Fed Income tax is dependent on what the Gross is in order to look up the tables with the Index Match function. How do I get the result of the function into column G? Can I increment up Column G and ignore the zeros that dragging the function down G creates?

## Summing Using Index Function

## Index Function - Return Only First Record

Feb 13, 2014

I have attached a sheet with what I am trying to accomplish...

I have several records that I am doing a lookup through. Most records have the same "work order number". As you can see on the attached sheet, my lookup function returns all the work order numbers that match my criteria.

What I need is to only return the first instance of the work order number then return the next unique work order number that meets my criteria.
