Constants Are ($) Variables Are?

Apr 14, 2007

While $ are constants for cells what is the symbol for variables? I guess when I dragged a formula down rows a certain number did not increase so I had to manually up each one as I went down the rows.

Variables And Constants Query

Oct 13, 2006

how do you assign a value to the variable to make it available to the module?

I have tried the following without success

Option Explicit
Dim batch As String
Dim folder As String
Dim title As String

batch = Sheets("Day 1"). Range("D1")
folder = "M:CR dim checksRetention"
title = folder & batch
file = title & ".xls"

Auto Creation Of Variables / Constants

Mar 25, 2007

I am trying to create a set of global variables (or actually constants) that can be used in my program based on two columns found in a spreadsheet. The first column in the spreadsheet contains the name of the variable, and the second column contains its value.

VarName VarValue
Var1 abc
var2 def
var3 ghi

When the program (which is an Add-in) is called by the user, the very first thing that I would like the program to do is to create each variable from the first column and assign the string value from the second column to this variable (or constant).

Reference Variables / Constants In Add-in From Workbook

Feb 21, 2008

I'm wondering if it is possible to declare a constant in an add in, and then reference that constant from workbooks that use that add in?

Basically I want to set a version number in the add in, and check it from the workbook.

Constants As Arrays In Vba?

Apr 16, 2009

Can you declare a const as an array in VBA? For example, let's say I wanted to define an array of ORDINALS:

Const ORDINALS(0 to 9) = ("0th","1st","2nd","3rd","4th","5th","6th","7th","8th","9th")

Can a macro be provided for selecting cells (including hidden) in the active sheet which are :

1. Totally consants ie not used in formula either in same sheet or other sheets

2. Constants ie figures used in formula in the same sheet and/or other sheets

Using Constants In Same Module

Oct 15, 2009

I declared a constant like so:

Public Const iFirstRow As Integer = 6

I figured that any time I used this, at least in the same module, its value would be 6, but it was 0.

I changed it to ModuleName.iFirstRow, which seemed to set it straight.

Is this just how it is, or am I doing something wrong that is preventing me from using it without the module name?

Sum Formula With Constants

Jun 23, 2007

I have a Excel budget spreadsheet. I need a running formula I can copy and paste to other month cells.


=SUM(B11+B4+C11-D11) Interest(B4), interest1(C11) and pmt(D11) are constants. The formula I am using works but it won't copy and paste.

Detecting Formulas Vs. Constants

Oct 1, 2006

In my company we have many spreadsheets with sections that contain formulas, which may be overwritten with "hard coding", manually entered constants, in certain situations.

Is there a way I can detect the differences between the two types of cells? I would like to setup conditional formatting that would highlight constants in a table that would generally only contains formulas.

Compare Value Of X Cells To Constants

Apr 3, 2008

I need the SUM function. I know how to use SUM and in one of my workbooks it is used quite a few times, but for two columns it will not add the columns up. In the Q column I have this formula throughout the cells: {=IF(AND($H6="DM",$J6=1),"$100.00","")} and the other column is just about the same (just has different H6 value). Then I have a cell with the formula {=SUM(Q6:Q900)} and the end result is $ -. This formula is used for other columns and it works just fine. I have checked the formatting in all the cells and have changed them to General, Number, Currency, and Accounting. None of those working. I have also checked the Calculation Tab in Tools>Options... and it is set to automatic.

Named Range / Constants In Formulas?

Apr 11, 2014

I have the following formula.

=SUMIFS('Register Sales'!$E$51:$C$2500,'Register Sales'!$C$51:,A2,'Register Sales'!$L$51:$L$2500,D2)

The range changes each month so I want to use a named cell "LastRow" where I can change the number to replace the 2500. How do I use the range name in my formula without giving me a #value# error?

Flag Cells With Constants In Formulas

Feb 6, 2008

I'm dealing with a lot of spreadsheets put together by people who are not that familiar with Excel. Because of this, there are many instances where the formulas created include constants. For example: = A1 * B1 + 200. I want to create a VBA routine that will cycle through the cells I selected and "flag" those cells that have a constant in the formula.

Using Array Constants In User-defined In Vba Function

Oct 1, 2009

I have a function in VBA of the type. Function MyFunc(Indx As Integer, k As Long, Rho As Range, A As Range) As Variant .... End Function

which is called as a user-defined function from within the Excel worksheet. When called with the last two arguments being a range (i.e. Result = MyFunc(1,98,A1:A2, B1:B2)) it works fine. However, when I try to directly use an array constant instead of a range (i.e. Result = MyFunc(1,98,{10,11}, {20,30}), it returns a #VALUE error.

I thought I could fix it by redefining the last two arguments as arrays of type double, but this didn't work either (i.e. Function MyFunc(Indx As Integer, k As Long, Rho() As Double, A() As Double) As Variant .... End Function ).

Change Numeric Constants In Column To Zeros

Oct 13, 2009

I have the following code

Call LastCell_Example(LastCell)
lastrow = Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).row
Set Datarange = ActiveSheet.Range("B1:" & LastCell)
' Set to 0 all cells that contain constants, but ONLY those that are numeric
Datarange.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants, xlNumbers) = 0

lastcell_example contains

Dim rng As Range

' Use all cells on the sheet
Set rng = Sheets("Courtage").Cells

' Find the last cell
LastCell = Last(3, rng)

' Select from A1 till the last cell in Rng
With rng.Parent
.Range("A1", LastCell).Select
End With

When I run the code above, I don't understand the fact that the first rows in the sheet AFTER "Courtage" are also being changed to zero.

Obviously, I'm not limiting my datarange correctly, but could someone explain what I need to do to limit the changed data to ONLY the current sheet.

Array Constant Composed Of Named Constants

Jun 20, 2008

I try to understand what the syntax is to create and use an array named constant which would be composed of other constant.

Example :
Constant called AvgZone1 which is =AVERAGE(zone1)
Constant called AvgZone2 which is =AVERAGE(zone2)

and then create a named array constant based on the names : =AvgZone1,AvgZone2
is not working. You cannot for example do a SUM().

Cell Type Constants Returns Wrong Order

Nov 28, 2007

I'd like to add items on a UserForm1 ComboBoxes in the correct order but I can't. That's because with the code below, in ComboBox6P1 the items are added with mixed order:

For Each thing In .Range("AC6", .Range("AC65536").End(xlUp)).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)
If Trim(ComboBox4P1.Text) = thing.Value Then
For Each aNew In .Range("AD6", .Range("AD65536").End(xlToRight)).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)
If aNew.Row = thing.Row Then
ComboBox6P1.AddItem aNew.Value
End If
Exit For
End If

I should add items in ComboBox6P1 in order -> AD6, AE6, AF6, AG6, AH6, the rest are empty cells. Instead of it adds AF6, AG6, AH6, AD6, AE6. When I change .SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants) to .SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible ) it adds it in the correct order but with another 200 emtpy cells in the ComboBox6P1. The format of the cells is General.

Conditional Formatting To Highlight Cells With Formulas (versus Constants)

Nov 24, 2010

Is it possible to use conditional formatting to highlight cells that use formulas, as opposed to having constants?

I have a sheet that uses formulas to provide a default value, but you can type in a number if you want to replace the default. I want to be able to easily identify which ones use the default formula.

If I use functions like FIND, they look at the result of a formula, and not the formula itself.

I know I can write a UDF that will figure it out but I was wondering if there is some built-in way.

Data Validation Fails With Named Range Of Array Of Constants?

Oct 27, 2013

I've set up a Named Range that refers to an array of constants, e.g. MyRange ={1,2,3,4,5}. This appears to be fine since I can output the named range to a range of cells in a row (e.g. A1:E1) and see 1,2,3,4,5 (one value in each column).

I'd like to use MyRange as the source for a Data Validation list in a cell.

Normally data validation list sources must be vertical, so I've set MyRange =TRANSPOSE({1,2,3,4,5}). This appears to be fine since I can output the named range to a range of cells in a column (e.g. A1:A5) and see 1,2,3,4,5 (one value in each row).

When I set MyRange as the source for data validation however, it resolves to an error.

why this setup doesn't work?

Class Modules: Provide Users With In-Code List Of Constants

Jul 8, 2009

I am working with a class module and some fields require specific inputs that another coder may not intuitively know. How can I create a list of acceptable conastants that will appear as a drop down when the user is coding with the custom object?

For example:
I am creating an Email Engine object that will handle all my emailing needs in code, because coding emails is such a pain. Then I can just create the blasted thing, import the class module where needed and never have to worry about it again. Some coworkers are interested in using the module for their projects when I am finished. I want to put an option for message flags in the object, but only certain colored flags are allowed. How can I get the VBE to show a little drop down with the acceptable flag constants when another user types

[Object Variable].MessageFlagColor = {drop down list of options}
I started with

Public Property Let MessageFlagColor(Value As Constants)

End Property
But that hasn't gotten me anywhere.

Format Formulas, Constants, Numbers & Text Cells Differently

May 8, 2008

I am attempting to write a VBA function that will add textual formatting to each cell that has content. I am just learning VBA; so far, as an example I have

Sub NewSub()
i = 1
j = 1
Cells(i, j) = "'" & Range(i.j).Value & "',"
i = i + 1
Loop Until i = 40
End Sub

but, as I'm sure you'll notice, it does not work. In essence I want to wrap quotes and follow with a comma each cell that contains any content. The actual content test I haven't gotten to yet.

VBA To Read Text Formula And Related Constants And Insert As Formula Into Cell

Jul 30, 2014

I have a situation where I have to curve fit data, this can lead to different formulas being used with varying constants.

Is it possible to pickup a TEXT based formula and related constants from other cells, and then place this into another cell as a functioning formula. For Example

Cell A1 contains the formula as a text string whether it be y=a+bx+cx^2, or y=a+b/x, etc
Cells A2:A6 contain the individual constants, a, b, c, etc

I would then want the VBA to read the text based formula and put it into an output cell as a functioning excel formulae.g

In cell B10: =a+b*A10+c*A10^2

I understand picking the constants up and putting the formula should not be too much of an issue, however trying to insert the variable form of the curve fit is the part that I am struggling with, and am unsure if possible.

Function Back Variables: Function Give Two Or More Output Variables

Jul 27, 2006

Can a Function give two or more output variables. e.g.

Sub a()
x = 5
result = Y(x)
End Sub

Function Y (x As Integer) As Integer
Dim B
B = ... * x
Y = ... * B

this will give back Y as a result. But if I want to get 2 or more output variables (let's say I need to get also B into sub) from one function, how should I do that?
I need this because function works with large matrix and I want to extract some values appeared in between.

Defining Variables Using Variables

Apr 27, 2006

I'm trying to loop through a range in excel from access, checking where the titles (in Excel row 1) match with the fields (in a recordset in Access that is passed to the function) - and where they do, I want to dimension a variable to hold the column number - I'm not sure it's possible, but I'd be interested to know either way. The line I'm asking about is at the bottom of the code - the rest of the code is just to give context...

Sub ImportGeneric(rsImported As ADODB.Recordset, rsConfirmed As ADODB.Recordset)
Dim fd As FileDialog
Dim xl As New Excel.Application
Dim wb As Excel.Workbook
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim iFilePicked As Integer
Dim strFilePath As String
fd.Filters.Add "Excel files", "*.xls"
fd.ButtonName = "Select"
iFilePicked = fd.Show
If iFilePicked = -1 Then
strFilePath = fd.SelectedItems(1)

Use 2 IF Variables?

Apr 9, 2014

I'm having a hard time understanding how to accomplish what seems to be a simple result.

I need to display one of two words, based on whether or not a pair of values are above or below the criteria.

IF H6 is greater than 5000
IF AB6 is greater than 25000
Display: Double

IF H6 is less than 5000
IF AB6 is greater than 25000
Display: Single

There is no 3rd scenario, even though logically there should be.
