Convert Cell Reference Text To Cell Formula

Aug 18, 2009

I am wanting to convert a cell reference text
"=$A$1"
to an actual cell reference
=$A$1

Manually I can go through each cell and click F2 + Enter and Excel automatically changes it.

I have tried recording a macro whereby I click through each cell with F2 + Enter but the VBA writes the actual formula "=$A$1" rather than the process. This does not work as the cell reference is variable.

I'm NOT wanting an external cell to convert it for me
i.e. INDIRECT(CELL)
because I am wanting to copy the answer to another independent spreadsheet

I'm NOT wanting to paste values
i.e. return the answer from cell $A$1
because I want the cell reference to remain within the cell.

Use Text In A Cell For A Formula As Cell Reference To Create Range

Mar 10, 2013

I have a list of headings and items and I have a set of formulas that work out depending on the heading what items are listed.

Say theres 10 items and the heading starts at C4 and that heading has 10 items, so it puts "C5" as text in G1 and "C15" as text in G2 so i now know my cell range of items

How can i use the text in those cells to put in a formula to call that as a range?

If I use the indirect formula it shows me the value of the cell, but im after using it to reference the cell

Cell Formula To Convert Text To VBA Code

May 8, 2014

I am about to take on a rather large excel project for our company. The first part is coming up with how to deal with our drafting department's length inputs. In this project, our users will be entering lengths in a unique format. I have to convert that unique format to a standard Foot-Inch-Fraction format.

To try to keep the file size down and keep the complexity down, converting a cell formula to VBA so i can run this on a group of cells rather than repeating my code downward multiple rows on multiple sheets.

It is either this or come up with my own font that will convert it for me but I do not know where to start with that. How to take a stab at converting this to a VB code i can run?

A3 = 1.0108
B3 = 1'-1 1/2"

The code in B3 looks like this:

[Code] .......

An explanation of the unique format we use in our drafting department:

Basic Feet, Inch and Fraction format = 0 . 00 00 = Feet . Inch Fraction

The numbers left of the decimal point are feet. The first two numbers to the right of the decimal point are inches and the next two are sixteenths of an inch.

Examples:
4’-2" = 4.0200
15’-5 1/4" = 15.0504
4’-11 3/8" = 4.1106
0’-1 15/16" = 0.0115

Copy Text To Cell And Convert To Numeric Formula

Feb 15, 2014

I have a spreadsheet where I enter text values in a cell, e.g. (.5 x .5) x 2 x .009. I want to find a way to automatically populated the cell to the right with the formula version, e.g. =(.5 * .5) * 2 * x .009 and format as three decimal place number.

One other question, is there a way to enter a template for entry in a cell. It would be nice if the text value above would take care of the parenthesis and multiplication signs for me.

Macro To Edit A Cell & Convert Formula To Text

Oct 13, 2006

Have a macro that copies a formula from each of 100 workbooks to a new workbook. I want to display these formulas as text and want a macro or someway to display these cells as text. I have tried to record a macro that presses the F2 key, the home key and the apostrophe. This works for the one cell but provides the following macro that does not work for anyother cell.

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
"'=VLOOKUP($A$30,'G:Variance Reports FY07[Salary Dist Var Repts_Cur Mth.xls]end of July'!$E$76:$G$200,3)"
Range("B3").Select

Looking For A Solution On How To Convert A Returned Cell Address To A Cell Reference

Dec 2, 2009

I have a formula (AL15) to determine the address of the last column with a value greater than 1. =COUNTIF(C16:AC16,">=1")+2. I then use this column value to aquire the Absolute row "15" and the determined column=(ADDRESS(15,AL15,4)). This returns to me a Column value and row value that I need to use as a refference. How can I convert this returned value to a reference.

Convert Cell Reference To Worksheet Reference

Jul 20, 2014

I have a workbook with 1000+ worksheets, all of which have 3-letter names. On a master sheet, I would like to make a query of how many non-empty cells there are on a subsidiary worksheet. This works:

Code:
=COUNTA(ABC!A:A)
What I'd like to do from time to time is input in column A a varying set of 3-letter worksheet names, say

AAB
ABC
CDE

And have a formula in column B that converts this to

=COUNTA(AAB!A:A)
=COUNTA(ABC!A:A)
=COUNTA(CDE!A:A)

I've learned that simply substituting the cell references A1, A2, A3 for AAB, ABC and CDE doesn't work. What do I need to do to achieve this?

Change Formula Cell Reference Based On Another Cell Reference

Jan 8, 2012

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?

Convert Named Range To Cell Reference?

Sep 18, 2012

I'm working with a very complex financial workbook with over 3,000 named ranges and would like code to replace the named ranges with the cell references and display it in a message box so the user can easily trace the references without removing the named ranges from the formula. There is a lot of code with the named ranges, so actually converting them to cell references is out of the question.

I found this code, but obviously it physically replaces the range names in the cell. Hopefully it can be converted to display it in a text box.

Code:
Sub FixReferencesToCellNames()
Dim c As Range, n As Name
For Each c In Range("A1:IV65536").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeFormulas)

[Code]....

What I am looking for is that a user select a cell that they want to see the references, run the code to see the cell references for that particular cell in a message box.

Macro: Convert Cell Value Without Being A Circular Reference

Jan 11, 2007

if this is possible without becoming a circular reference.

Aim: to have a Macro that takes user selected cell and converts it the result and place it back in the same cell.

Example: could have a typed value in A10 say 500, and when the cell i selected and the Macro is run is converts the value by B10 (.5) and places the value back into A10. ie A10= A10*B10 (250)

I know this is a circular reference but could the macro say take the Value A10 and hold it in a temporary string of some sort before calculating and then returning the new value in there?

Convert Cell Number Reference To String Address

May 18, 2007

I have something like the following:

If Worksheets("RawData"). Cells(1, nColumn).Value = Worksheets("RawData").Cells(12, 16).Value Then
..do code (I know the cell location of interest at this point)
End If

Then I End up needing To Do something Like the following
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).XValues = _
Worksheets("RawData").Range("L1:N1")

L1:N1 above is a sample. Given the code above it I have the cell location in question but it is in the format such as .Cells(12,16). That doesnt do me much good when range wants something like L1. I dont know how to convert that (12,16) to a L16 for example.

Excel 2007 :: Formula To Return First Cell Reference In Another Cell Formula

Oct 1, 2011

Version: Excel 2007 WinXP

I'm basically looking for something almost like an inverse function to INDIRECT. This function would first look at a cell's formula as a text string, parse out the first valid cell reference in A1 format, and return that cell as a text string.

Detail: I have a spreadsheet with cells that point to other values. I would like to get only the row number from the first cell reference in the formula residing in a given cell. For example:

Suppose A1 has the formula =AL267. and A2 has the formula =SUM(AL94:AL235)

I would like a formula in B1 that returns the text string, "AL267" so that I would know this is the first reference.

Ideally it could be dragged down to B2 such that it returns the text string "AL94" (and not "AL235") because AL94 is the first cell reference in A2's

Currently I am copying the formulas after hitting ctl+` and pasting that text into a text editor, followed by text operations to manipulate the results into the desired values. Any solution that didn't involve going out to notepad.

Convert Blank Formula Cell To Empty Cell?

Feb 26, 2008

I am using a IF(ISNA(Vlookup##,##,##)),"",(Vlookup##,##,##)) function, in order to remove N/A errors.

Is there anyway to convert the "" values to back to an empty cell without anything in it (i.e not text "", but empty as it was originally). I find that the file sizes are very large, when using this function, as data (although blank) is stored in each cell (i know this, because if I use cntr+arrow, it sees it as data, and not an empty area). I don't want to manually go through each cell and delete them as there is quite a bit of data (10000 rows , 2 columns, 30 tabs)

Maintaining Cell Reference According To Its Physical Position From Formula Cell?

Jan 29, 2014

I need to make a cell display the contents of the cell immediately below it, regardless of if there are rows inserted at the referenced row or above or below it on the worksheet. ALSO I need to do this at several additional cell locations down the worksheet. Such as : A1 displays A2, A4 displays A5, A7 displays A8 etc.

Example: I want A1 to display whatever is in the cell immediately below it. In this case A2. I need to be able to insert several rows at row 2 and have whatever new value is now in the A2 position displayed in A1.
After the rows are inserted I need the cell that was in position A4 to continue to display the contents of the cell below it.

I tried using the formula in A1 of: =INDIRECT("A2") and it works good except when I insert the rows my similar formulas below the area where the rows were inserted continue to refer to the specific original cell and not the one positioned now below it.

Cell Reference :: Formula To Reference New Cells

Feb 15, 2010

I have lets say 12 months of data. I have formulas that reference the latest 6 months. When I insert a new column to input a new month, how can I make the formulas include the new months without manually updating them.

EXAMPLE:

12 months of data exist in cells B3:M3 going from B3(oldest) to M3(newest). Formulas reference latest 6 months of data in cells H3:M3. When a new month hits, I insert a column after column M.I would like the formulas to now reference cells I3:N3 which is now the newest 6 months.

How To Reference Cell Values In A Cell Containing Only Text

Jul 24, 2014

Here is a made up scenario which tries to emulate my query:

I have a spreadsheet with two tabs - one called Model and the other called Prod. In the Prod tab, I have the following text entered in single cell - A1

My name is
I was born in
I Live in

What I would like to do is add cell values from the Model tab at the end of each line. For example;

My name is JOE
I was born in 1915
I Live in AUSTRALIA

I tried the following but it didn't work.

My name is Model!A1
I was born in Model!A2
I Live in Model!A3

I believe it didnt work was because the cell starts of with text rather than a formula

Copying A Cell To Cell Reference Created By A Formula

Jul 25, 2013

I have run an INDEX and MATCH formula to give me a resultant cell reference number. I now want to copy a cell to this specific cell reference using another formula.

For example the data I want to copy is in cell A1 and in cell A2 I have the result of the index formula (B1).

I know how to manually do a formula for this but wanting to know if there is a uniform formula that I can use that looks at the formula result of cell A2.

Convert Array Into Text And Remove Duplicate Entries From Text In Cell?

Jun 12, 2014

I have the following two columns, and would like to obtain for each individual Company, the corresponding Country values excluding duplicates as text in a single cell.

Company 2Country B
Company 2Country C
Company 3Country C
Company 3Country C
Company 5Country A
Company 5Country C
Company 5Country C

For example:
- For Company 2, a cell containing "Country B, Country C"
- For Company 3, a cell containing "Country C"
- For Company 5, a cell containing "Country A, Country C"

I've approached generating an array using an IF statement, as in =IF(INDEX(A1:A8="Company 5",,),INDEX(B1:B8,,)," "), which returns the following array: ={" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";"Country A";"Country C";"Country C";" ";" ";" ";" "}.

The question is: how do I get that array to produce, as text in a cell: "Country A, Country C". Note that the duplicate Country C has been removed.

There are a few "StringConcat" User-defined functions that I've found elsewhere on the internet, but they don't seem to be able to handle to conditionally generated IF Index array, which I would think is key to parsing between Countries corresponding to each Company in the list.

Macro To Automatically Convert PrtScr Image Based Text To Real Text In Cell

Mar 22, 2014

Programming Excel VBA Macro to do OCR (text recognition) from a prt scr screen capture image and input the text into cells. Currently my Excel file has a push-button, and upon clicking on it the macro pastes into Excel the current clipboard image I have created by pressing prt scr while in another program. The macro then crops the image to the region with the applicable text. I have to then manually type the text I see in image format into the appropriate cells.

the VBA coding to automate this? I'd like it to use the clipboard image and run it through OneNote OCR, after which the applicable text values are automatically entered into the cells. Ideally the code will first crop to the region with the desired text before it does OCR. If this is not feasible, it will need to incorporate a method (keyword search?) to hone in on the desired text after the entire prt scr image has been OCRed.

Formula Reference Cell Address In Cell

Jan 15, 2008

I have 2 sheets. In the first sheet, I have 3 columns. The first column contains transaction codes. The 2nd column contains the destination code (like a mapping cell where the value of the 3rd column would go but in a different sheet/2nd sheet) and the 3rd column contains the values for it. Would it be possible to reference a destination in a cell itself? Or should I just code it individually? I wouldnt want to reference each data one by one because the total would be 480 reference cells. Is there an easier way?

Assume cell A1 contains a name and A2 contains the text "D7".

How would the code look like that
1. reads the contense in cell A2 (which is D7),
2. converts it (D7) to a cell address and finally
3. copies the content in cell A1 to the cell address found in A2 (in this case D7)
