If you have a cell with the value ="2*c2+3" NB: (Notice the ""), then to make excel convert the formula in another cell to =2*c2+3 (notice the removal of ""), so that it can calculate the value of the cell instead of showing a textstring?

I am copying the value in a cell to another sheet's cell. I want to convert the formulas on the second sheet to reflect their value. I do this all the time within cells by using Past Special and Values however it doesn't give me that option within the Text Box

I have an excel file with 2 sheets. Sheet 1 has a column that contains formulas (ie (18299*11151)/20067 ) Those numbers are IDs referencing questions stored in Sheet 2. What I would like to do is find a way to look up those questions and place them into the formula instead of the ID numbers.

To avoid manually updating a formula 100+ times, I am looking for a way to update cells in a column with reoccuring formulas with references to other cells that vary respectively from cell to cell. Meanwhile, there are other cells without formulas that this will not apply to in the same column. I am trying to avoid macros if possible, unless it can be easily understood/modified by someone who knows next to nothing about macros or VBA. My initial thought was to use the find/replace feature, but I don't know of any way to do this so the reference will update respectively for each cell (ie A9 then A10 etc.) in both the find and the replace fields.

ie Find: A9="Text1" Replace: OR(A9="Text1",A9="Text2") Where the row number updates respectively.

Simplified example:

Existing: =IF(A9="Text1","1","2") [misc. blank or non-blank cell] =IF(A10="Text1","1","2") etc..................................

I am trying to find a way to search for specific cell formulas (not the values they produce). For example, how could I search an Excel tab for a cell containing "= sum()" ? I want to ignore all other formulas and values. I then want to replace this formula only with its value.

I am using a lot of linked reports that have to be rewritten each month. For example smaller formulas look like this:

=('S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$228*2)+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$262+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$292

What I want to do is extract the file path from the above formula and make it a composite of several cell references.

So what I need is to have a cell where they can change the month and another where we can change the year. So I set up several named cells that look like this:

I've found a few macros that will automate changing cell references from absolute to relative and they work great. However, when I run the macros on formulas that have references to another worksheet or workbook, the macro will not work correctly.

I'm trying to automate creating certain keyword combinations I need, based off of the values I input into reference cells in columns A - E; the goal is to compile a list of keywords which I will then use to track my rankings in search engines.

I'm looking to only output 500 keywords, so some of the cells in columns A, B, C & E will not contain data (column D will always have a primary Geo-target listed). This results in some of the concatenate formulas I've created outputting partial data (i.e. if there is no data in cell A10, and cell D2 contains the word "Knoxville", then cell I10 will output the data, "Knoxville "). How can I setup conditioning formatting or a formula so that these auto-generated cells appear blank if one of the reference cells has no data within it?The reason why I need the above to work is because I want to setup a formula that automatically counts the # of keyword combinations created by the data entered into any of the reference cells. With the partial combinations being listed, it skews my data. Which leads me to my next question: what is the best formula for counting the # of cells containing a full keyword combination from any of the cells listed in columns G - O (minus the data in the header cells; i.e. G1, H1, etc...)?Lastly, is there a formula I could use that would then aggregate all of the full keyword combinations within the "Complete Keyword List" column (column P)?

I have a names in column A starting with row 7 as follows:

Walden, Douglas E Haden, Michael Wilson, Matt David

I need help with coming up with 3 formulas:

(1) That returns the First, Middle Initial, & Last Name in column P of the same row: Cell P7 Douglas E Walden Cell P8 Michael Haden Cell P9 Matt David Wilson

(2) That returns the First & Middle Initial in colum Q of the same row: Cell Q7 Douglas E Cell Q8 Michael Cell Q9 Matt D

However, I am so new at this, the simpler the formula the better because I want to try & understand it, not just learn it.

I want to convert multiple sections that contains formulas to values. Usually i did this by coping range of cells, and paste as Values. But now i have multilple sections and excel doesn't allowe me to copy multiple sections. (i can not use clipboard, because there are more than 2.5 k rows)

I want to create a Macro to convert the formula results from a filtered data range to values. I thought to use a simple code to do the copy - paste to value

Sub QuickSaveValue() Dim r As Range, c As Range Set r = Selection For Each c In r.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeFormulas) c.Copy c.PasteSpecial xlPasteValues Next c Application.CutCopyMode = False End Sub

But is not good because the range is much to large and i need just a filtered part to be changed and i tried like this:

I am running Excel 2007 on Windows Vista Business 32 bit. Recently I have noticed that if I enter a formula into an empty, unsused cell, it is recognized as a formula. If I modify that formula, it is then recognized as text and does not work as a formula. The only way I can get the cell to recognize a formula is to delete the cell and start over. This same scenario does not occur on previously stored workbooks. I have checked all of the flags that I know about, including the Options function.

'To delete delivery address lines if 1st line empty If IsEmpty(Range("deliver_line1")) _ Then Sheets(1).Range("deliver_rows").EntireRow.Delete 'No End If required as only one action as a result of the If

A spreadsheet based on my template has been sent to me because the macro won't run properly. When I try to run the macro I get a Runtime Error '1004' Method 'Range' of object '_Global' failed on the following line. Columns("A:E") = Columns("A:E").Value.

I am creating a Macro to convert formulas to values on a Datasheet after each entry from a form (worksheet) is carried over. Since each entry will go on a separate row I created formulas to give the new datas location. I just can't get the syntax correct for it to run.

Sub Convert_Formulas_to_Values() Range("Reviews!$B$202").Value: Range("Reviews!$AF$202").Value.Select Selection.Copy[code]....

Problem: The macro will be assigned to a command button and will be used by laypersons when they finish filling in data on a worksheet in Workbook 1. The sheet contains maybe 30 columns and 50 rows with a mix of fixed values and values generated by Vlookup and Indirect formulas. I need to copy the sheet from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2. Workbook 2 will be for archival purposes so I want to convert all formulas to fixed values. The catch is dealing with some cells that contain hyperlinks to PDF files...

Current Solution: I currently do this with a macro that moves/copies the sheet from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2, it then selects all cells in the new sheet in Workbook 2, copies all cells, then pastes-special "as values" to the exact same cell locations. This works great for me since the cell formatting and data in the sheet are VERY irregular and I have merged cells all over the place. This method keeps the exact formatting I need maintain:

The problem is that a few of the cells have hyperlinks with "friendly names" and I lose the hyperlinks when I convert to values. The hyperlinks are not inserted directly, they are created by a formula, =HYPERLINK("N:Filepath"&C16&".PDF", "Click_For_PDF"), and the row and column that contains the hyper link will vary for each sheet I want to migrate from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2 using this macro. I want to keep the hyperlink active with the clickable friendly name in Workbook 2.

Possible Solution: I'm open to all types of solutions, but is there a way to essentially use my existing macro but AFTER converting to values with paste-special, go back to the original sheet in Workbook 1 that still contains formulas (or maybe a temporary duplicate sheet I migrate to Workbook 2?), search for all cells with a "value" of "Click_For_PDF", copy ONLY those cells and paste (normal) into the corresponding cell locations in the sheet in Workbook 2 that now contains fixed values? ALL of my hyperlinks have the friendly name "Click_For_PDF" so it should be an easy way to identify the hyperlink cells. The cell location of the hyperlink copied in Workbook 1 needs to carry over to Workbook 2 and I said before, the row and col vary with every sheet I want to archive with this macro.

I have a spreadhseet with various functions on it and what I am trying to do is this.

Cell E4 returns a >35 or <35 true or false value Cell G4 is either blank or has "Yes" text type into it.

What I am trying to do is get cell F4 to return certain arguments.

E4 = >35 and G4 is blank I want it to state "Email Hiring Manager" E4 = ,35 and G4 is blank I want it to state "Wait"

I have a basic IF formula that returns this =IF(E4>35,"Email Hiring Manager","Wait")

Then if cell G4 is populated with a Yes the formula needs to overwirte the origonal if with the return arguments of =IF(G4="Yes","Email Agency","Email Hiring Manager")

If yes then what would be Email Hiring Manager (yes will only be input if E4 is greater than 35) will be overwritten with "Email Agency"

Can this be done with two If formulas or does there need to be 3 or more to count if other IF formulas are actually returning a value?

I have formulas in a column and they are working unless I edit them to include another function, more cells, whatever, then they display as formulas instead of the result. I've gone to Tools --> Options --> View and the Formulas box is not checked. As well automatic calculation is on not manual.

I am trying to link a form to a spreadsheet that will be used as an import into Access. When I tried to create the form however, all my links are showing as Text and not the information that is in the linked cells. How do I get rid of this? I am trying to set up some combofields on the form to make entry easier. Here is what I am working with.

All I want to do is add up the # of cells with text in them and leave out the blank cells. The problem is when I use COUNT or COUNTA it's counting the cells with formulas in it too.

B1, C1, E1, F1, H1, I1, K1, L1, N1, O1 will contain 1 of 10 different names (John, James, David, Jack, Alex, Aaron, Jason, Stan, Robert, Will)

I need A25 to pull the info from B1 A26 to pull the info from C1 A27 to pull the info from E1

If B1 and E1 have the same name then A27 should be blank.

Also C15, G15, and K15 contain a number. If A25 is not blank, then B25 should equal C15; If A26 is not blank, then B26 should equal C15; If A27 is not blank, then B27 should equal K15. However, if B1 and E1 contains the same name, then A25 should equal C15 + K15.

If B1=John C1=James E1=David F1=Jack and C15=10 G15=15 K15=20

then A25=John A26=James A27=David A28=Jack and B25=10 (C15) B26=10 (C15) B27=15 (G15)

But if B1=John C1=James E1=John F1=Jack and C15=10 G15=15 K15=20 then A25=John A26=James A27=(blank because John is already listed in A25) A28=Jack and B25=25 (C15+G15) B26=10 B27=(blank) B28=15(G15).

I have a tracking template to track the milestones of each data sets (received, etl complete, qa, live). In my status column I'm using the following IF formula to auto populate the the status:

However, I need to now start putting expected dates for these milestones in a grey text for each status. So none of the cells for the above formula will be blank. Is there a way to say if the text is grey, to ignore the date to auto populate the status column based on the black text that is available?

Sometimes Excel just stops processing certain formulas on a worksheet and considers the as plain text (regardless of the fact that the cell contents starts with an equation sign "="). For example formula "=1+2" doesn't show anymore as "3" but as "=1+2", as if it's only a string of text .But if I type the same formula in the cell next to it, it shows the correct result "3".

Also, when I try to evaluate the formula, excel tells me that "the cell currently being evaluated contains a constant" -- so its not about wether my formulas are "visible" (tools-options-view-formulas) or not. The number of my formulas asre always under the maximum 1024 characters.

I am looking over spreadsheets in a new job, and I am coming across formulas I am unfamiliar with?

For example, =(G16*G17/C13-G24)*hrs and =I25*elec.

hrs and elec??

After using the "Trace Precedents" feature, the "hrs" and "elec" are still a mystery to me. Are these variables that the creator of the spreadsheet has defined? They don't appear to be named data sets because they exist in just a few cells.

Formula in B2: B17 =IF(RIGHT(A2,10)="_New Entry",1,"")

Formula in C1 =SUM(B2:B17)

I would like to remove Column B, and add the formula in C1 itself. Column B is not of any use, it is just showing which is a new entry and C1 is totaling all the New entries, which is in this case is 4.
