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:

What I'd like to do from time to time is input in column A a varying set of 3-letter worksheet names, say


And have a formula in column B that converts this to


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?

Excel 2007 :: Convert Absolute Reference Into Relative Reference

Feb 4, 2014

I have encountered some difficulty in modifying a macro I wrote into what I need. I created a macro that searches a column (Column C) for a cell value of, "stop", and then it copies everything above that cell and pastes it onto another sheet. In the sample data set that I was using, "stop" first occurred in cell C541, so the macro copies C1:C540 and pastes it onto another sheet. The problem is that the macro created an absolute reference to C540. What I desire is for the macro to use the 'Find' function to locate the first occurrence of, "stop", offset one cell above that cell, and then reference the active cell (which was positioned by these last two steps) in the range that should be copied. Basically, I'm hoping to have cells C1 through the active cell copied and then pasted onto another sheet.

Code below.

Sub FAIL()
' FAIL Macro
Selection.Find(What:="stop", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt _

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.

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


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 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 = _

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.

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 Text To Cell Formula

Aug 18, 2009

I am wanting to convert a cell reference text
to an actual cell reference

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
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.

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.


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.

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.

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?

Use A Worksheet Reference Cell In A Formula?

Apr 10, 2014

I have a formula to extract the worksheet name and add the "!" to it so it can be used in a copied formula... I'm just having trouble writing the formula to reference the text in the cell with the worksheet name. If it's easier, I also have the list of worksheets without the "!" - e.g., Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3, etc...

I want the formula to calculate, in my example, the sum of 2 cells on a different worksheet.

Reference Cell On One Worksheet In Right Footer Of Another?

Jan 7, 2014

Been having some trouble with this using VBA. I can't seem to get the code to run properly.

Actually, if there is a way to get a right footer on one worksheet to be referenced in a cell on another, that would be even better but I haven't been able to find anything like that.

Reference Cell From Another Excel Worksheet?

Dec 6, 2013

I've done this loads of times before but doing it this morning seems to not be working at all.

Previously I'd be in Sheet 1, I put the equals sign, I click into Sheet 2 in the cell I want, hit enter, and hey presto the external cell is referenced in Sheet 1.

However, what I'm trying to do here is not reference individual sheets within an excel document, but reference a totally separate Excel document. Can I do this or not?

If so how? Because when I select the second worksheet after I've entered the = sign, it just takes me to the second sheet - it doesn't seem to 'remember' that I'm in the middle of a formula.

Sumif - Reference To Cell On Another Worksheet

Feb 27, 2007

I'm trying to reference a cell on another worksheet in my criteria and the formula doesn't seem to be working. All I get is a value of 0.

= SUMIF(G3:G76, ">='City Wide'!B6",I3:I76)

If I replace 'City Wide'!B6 with an actual number the formula works. This does not help as 'City Wide'!B6 is a value that can change.

Open A Closed Worksheet W/ Cell Reference

Jan 4, 2010

I am trying to open a stored file on a network drive (with the file location stored in cell E4). When I try to run the macro, I get an error message on Line 3. (Sheets(E4.Value).Activate)

Does anyone know what I can do to fix this, or have a better method to open the closed files?

I've read that it's possible to reference information from a closed sheet, but I don't think that I'm experienced enough in VBA to take on that effort yet.

Using A Cell Reference To Copy Rows To A New Worksheet

Jun 14, 2006

I've been tasked with redoing a revenue report at work, and in my head I've conjured up what could potentially be a huge time saving way of doing things in the future, although have searched help files and looked around online and can't find the formula/macro (if it exists) to enable me to do this.

The problem is this:

Sheet 1 of the workbook is a large input sheet. Every row contained in that sheet will, in column A, be titled 'red', 'yellow' or 'green'. Columns B onwards contain other data which (at the moment) is irrelevant to the problem.

Now what I want excel to do after I've put the raw data into the input sheet (sheet 1), is to read the text in column A for each row, then automatically copy ALL data in that row over to the next empty row on another worksheet.

ie Sheet 2 will have all rows that have 'Red' in column A on the input sheet, Sheet 3 will have all those titled 'Yellow' and Sheet 4 will have all those titled 'Red'.

I know I can use a filter on the input sheet to just show the data I want, but each colour coded row will contain different data to another, and if there is a formula/macro setup i can use to do the above, then I can set the subsequent worksheets up to hide the superflous columns from the input sheet.

Reference Cell For Worksheet Name Macro Code

Apr 11, 2008

I've got 3 sheets, A, B, and C. In sheet C, I have a cell named "element". That cell can have either the letter A or the letter B in it. In my VB code, I want to reference the sheet which correlates with the "element" cell. So,


when the user clicks my "go" button, it calls this logic, and I want the worksheet that correleates to the letter in the cell in worksheet C - to open.

The reason for my posting - this is not working, and may not even be possible. Perhaps someone has experience in this and knows how to do it - or knows a different way to do this.

Highlight Cells Based On Cell Reference On Another Worksheet

May 27, 2014

I am trying to find a way to automatically highlight all the cells specified by the cell references in a column on another worksheet (which will constantly have new values added).

On the attached sample, the 'Data Before' tab shows the base data before any highlighting. As cell references are added to the 'References' tab in 'column A' I want the respective cell to be highlighted on the 'Data Before' tab resulting in the 'Data After' tab and each time a new cell reference is added to the 'References' tab, the respective cell is then highlighted on the 'Data Before' tab.

I would like to have control over the highlight colour so that a different highlight colour can be specified for each date change, i.e. all cell references that are shown on the same date are the same colour but where the date changes a different highlight colour can be specified.

INDIRECT - Sum Contents Of Column On Another Worksheet Up To Certain Cell Reference

Jan 24, 2012

Trying to use INDIRECT to sum the contents of a column on another worksheet upto a certain cell reference which is in another cell on the worksheet.


I have taken it back to simply having sheet1 with numbers in A4 to A23, then sheet2 with A23 in cell B1, and the formula above it C9, but I keep getting #REF!.

The formula works fine if on sheet1 without the worksheet names in it. Formula evaluation gets to =SUM(INDIRECT("Sheet1!A4:Sheet1!A23")) then gives =SUM(#REF!)

VBA Script To Create Excel Reference To A Cell In Different Worksheet

Dec 18, 2013

I am trying to create a budgeting spreadsheet that contains 26 worksheets that represent 2 week expense cycles. The worksheet will tally all the expenses in its 2 week cycle, compare them to a target budget, and calculate the remaining budget. I would like to roll the remaining budget over to the next 2 week budget cycle by having a cell refer to the remaining budget in the previous worksheet.

I am trying to accomplish this using the following VBA script. I get an error (Run-time error 1004: Application-defined or object-defined error) on the 3rd to last line of the code. I think the issue is with how I am constructing the wsReference variable. I have seen other codes do something similar (VBA - How to refer to a different worksheet cell) but I am not having any luck.

Sub Budget_Rollover()
Dim i As Long
' Loop through all the worksheets, starting with the second sheet
For i = 2 To Worksheets.Count
Dim wsReference As String
Dim wsName As String
' Define the name of the previous expense cycle worksheet

Reference To Cell Column Letter By Reference To Another Cell Value

Apr 25, 2014

Let's say I've ended up with the number 8 in Cell D4 for example. Is there a formula that can return the letter "G" (The 8th Column) so I can use it in future cell references ? If so, let's say we store that in Cell B5. How do I now refer to a cell in a chosen Row of that same Column by reference to Cell B5 ? For example if I want to refer to Cell G33 can you refer to this Cell in some form like Cell(Contents of Cell B5;33) ??? Don't want to use R1C1 type references if possible.

Macro Used Textbox In Worksheet Rather Than Cell Reference As Criteria To Find Matches

Sep 26, 2013

This is a continuation of thread 182629 [URL] ....

The End User wanted originally to type characters into cell C1 of a worksheet that the macro searched for in another worksheet, copying across every row containing the input.

The responses gave me the following code which worked perfectly:

With Sheets("PICKLIST")
myFind = "*" & .[c1].Value & "*"
End With
If myFind = "*" & "" & "*" Then Exit Sub

Unfortunately, the user NOW wants a Text Box instead of putting the characters into a cell.

I added a textbox (originally called 'TextBox2' but renamed "Choice") and "Dimed" CHOICE As Range.

Then tried the following code:

With Sheets("PICKLIST")
myFind = "*" & CHOICE & "*"
End With

But it generates a "RunTime Error 91" - Object variable or With block variable not set.

Excel 2003 :: Copy Data And Then Increment Cell Reference From Different Worksheet?

Nov 28, 2013

I've got 2 worksheets in the same workbook.

Sheet 1 contains huge amounts of data - thousands of rows and multiple columns

Sheet 2 - I want to extract the data from sheet 1 column A into sheet 2 column A but only the data from every 21st row.

I want to be able to copy the formula automatically down, otherwise it will take hours to do it manually. So far I can only get the cell reference to increment by 1 each time after copying.

So what I'm trying to achieve is :-

Sheet 2 A1 = Sheet 1 A1
Sheet 2 A2 = Sheet 1 A22
Sheet 2 A3 = Sheet 1 A43

Stop Formula Column Reference Changing On Insert But Not Row Reference

Mar 6, 2008

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.
