Convert IF Functions To IF OR Formulas

Jun 12, 2008

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.

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

Simplified example:

[misc. blank or non-blank cell]

Search For Certain Formulas & Convert To Values

Oct 19, 2006

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.

Using Cell References In File Paths For Formulas To Create Dynamic Formulas

Dec 3, 2013

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:

_MONTH =11 November
_YEAR =2013

I tried several versions, I am hoping for something like this:

=('_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B$228*2)+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B$262+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B$292

Formulas To Hide Partial Concatenate Data And Determining Two Other Formulas

Dec 11, 2013

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)?

Formulas To Convert Personal Names To Different Formats.

Jan 26, 2008

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.

Excel 2007 :: Formulas In Cells Not Being Recognized As Formulas?

Jan 10, 2013

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.

Excel 2007 :: Alternative To Convert Formulas To Values That Keeps Hyperlinks Active?

Oct 16, 2013

I'm using Excel 2007 and I'm a VBA novice.

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:

ActiveSheet.Copy After:=Workbooks("Workbook2.xlsx").Sheets(1)
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
Application.CutCopyMode = False

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.

Using Two IF Formulas (3 Or More To Count If Other IF Formulas Are Actually Returning A Value)

Aug 24, 2009

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?

Text And Numbers In Formulas

Aug 18, 2009

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).

Formulas Based On Text Color

Tracking Snip.jpg

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:

=IF(ISBLANK(F3),"Waiting",IF(ISBLANK(G3),"Received",IF(ISBLANK(H3),"ETL Complete",IF(ISBLANK(L3),"QA","Complete"))))

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?

Considers My Formulas As Plain Text

Jun 30, 2006

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.

Excel 2010 :: Text Contained In Formulas?

I am working in Excel 2010.

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.
