# Copy Formula With Absolute Reference & Increment Row Number Every X Cells

Mar 25, 2009
I am creating a spreadsheet which creates a bulk of data from a front sheet.

The question is:

Is there a way to automatically copy a fixed formula for 100 cells using one fixed cell reference such as $A$1 and then automatically after 100 cells replace $A$1 with $A$2, after another 100 with $A$3 and so on?

Explanation with Example:

For example, Sheet1 contains the words "Green Tree" in Cell A1 and Sheet2 will then place "Green Tree" into 100 different sentences such as:

Plant a Green Tree

Grow a Green Tree today

This would be created with the formula ="Grow a "&'Sheet1'!$A$1& " today"

After 100 different variations using the formula I want to change that formula to reference cell A2 on Sheet1.

I know if I place "Red Tree" in Cell A2 and use the formula ="Grow a "&'Sheet1'!$A$2& " today" I can do this manually using find and replace for the 100 cells, but I want to do this for 100 different variations of Green Tree to create a 10,000 different sentences so I'd need to find and replace 100 times!

I've got a worksheet here that i need to update every week. The problem i'm having is that i have a table of values that's drawing values in from another larger table. For example in B9 the cell is referenceing the I2 cell in another sheet. When i pull down the formula in B9 i want the cell below to reference J2 and so on. In other words, I only want the alpha characters to increment. Tried messing around with dollar signs but it doesn't seem to be doing what i want.

I need a macro to do this small task for me. Preferably it should execute when I have selected a cell and press a command button. Here's the way it should work:

Copy the cell I have selected

In my data validation I have the following formula as the Source: =INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE($F$2," ","_")). I want to be able to copy the cell and paste it into another cell and have the formula update to reference the new cell. Currently the validation is for cell G2 and references F2. I want to be able to copy G2 and paste it in G3-G6 having the formula update so it refrences F3-F6.

How do I copy an absolute cell reference from say a1 to a2 -100 so that the row reference increments with each row. Without the absolute cell reference '$' it works Ok. But with it every cell is the same as a1?

I have written some VBA code that is functional, but yields a formula that is somewhat confusing to the user.

I have two string variables called TippityTop and Anchor, both of which refer to specific cell addresses in the R1C1 style.

I attempted to define other variables that reference cells that are offset from TippityTop and Anchor without using the ActiveCell route. Try as I might, I could not produce the cell addresses that I wanted these new variables to reference.

I consulted many Excel Help screens and referred to a book on Excel VBA, but I finally took another route.

I now have:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _

"=IF(AND(ISNA(MATCH(RC[-2],OFFSET(" & TippityTop & ",1,-2):OFFSET(" & Anchor & ",-2,-2),0)>0),ROUND(RC[-1],2)0),""DOV not in Treasury"","""")"

The problem is that this code yields this formula in Excel:

=IF(AND(ISNA(MATCH(L587,OFFSET($H$585,1,-2):OFFSET($H$798,-2,-2),0)>0),ROUND(M587,2)0),"DOV not in Treasury","")

Rather than OFFSET($H$585,1,-2):OFFSET($H$798,-2,-2), I would like the formula to say F586:F796, so that the end user can easily understand the logic.

I am currently working on a data analysis project (data mining) and need to collect and later analyze statistics for the inputs which control a series of calculations. These statistics are shown in the Statistics 1, Statistics 2 and Statistics 3 cells in the workbook that I attached. The inputs are X,Y; all possible values for these inputs are listed in the N,O columns. Basically I need a macro which would take the values from these two columns and place them pair after pair into the controlling cells (K3, L3), then it would copy cells H2 through L3 (updated stats) to a new sheet after each copy operation - so that I will finally have a list of statistics for all of the input pairs.

If I type the formula below into cell A1 and then drag it to cell A2 it correctly changes $A6 to $A7

CELL A1 =Planner!$A6*(BS8/20)

CELL A2 =Planner!$A7*(BS9/20)

I would like it to change $A6 to $A14 and then to $A22 as below. In other words adding 8 to the reference each time I drag it down.

CELL A1 =Planner!$A6*(BS8/20)

CELL A2 =Planner!$A14*(BS9/20)

CELL A3 =Planner!$A22*(BS10/20)

CELL A4 ==Planner!$A30*(BS11/20)

I'm trying to write a formula that will keep the Column ID static while allowing the Row ID to be reference. Each week my worksheet adds one line and the formula in question is moved one cell to the right and thus the formula cell makes the same move (1, -1). I need the formula to keep the column the same from week to week, while allowing the row to shift downward with the formula. I've attached a sample spreadsheet with the formula I derived. Check out the highlighted formula to familiarize yourself before running.

I am migrating a bookkeepping spreadsheet from Quattro v12 (c2001) to Excel 2007 and have hit a stone wall over relative 3-D references.

In this workbook each sheet holds data for one month, and this includes some lagging-12-month calculations -- that is, summing a range on a single cell for the preceding 12 sheets (including this one).

Unexpectedly, this formula:

=ISUM('201206:201305'!M6)

gives absolute references, even though I put in no dollar signs after the sheet names. This means it gives the wrong answer when copied to the next sheet to start a new month.

I can find no reference at all to converting the above formula from absolute to relative reference.

I have two sheets in my workbook, and I am trying to reference one chart's value into the other. (attached)

I have referenced successfully by manually typing in the reference on row 2 for all values on Sheet 1:

Sheet 1 - C2 needs to reference Sheet 2 - B2. (Sheet2!B2) - no problem all the way across to F2. All those values are correct b/c I manually typed in the reference.

The problem comes when I just want to drag over that same formula to increment for the other cells. It's not incrementing the formula like I need it to.

So, Sheet 1, Row 2 shows how the correct values I need to pull over but was done in a manual way. Sheet 1, Row 5 shows how it increments incorrectly when I try to just drag/copy the formula over. What I need is for Sheet 1 - D5 to reference Sheet 2 - C3, but instead if I try and drag to copy the formula instead of manually typing it in, it increments when I drag reference D2 instead of C3.

I'm having to copy formula on a tabulation sheet that compiles information from other worksheets, and I need to change the formulas in each row to refer to the successive worksheets. Right now I don't know any other way than changing the formula in each cell, and this is taking way too long.

Example:

One cell's formula: =COUNTIF('5'!$F$21:$T$50,TABULATION!C$5) In the next row down, I need it be: =COUNTIF('6'!$F$21:$T$50,TABULATION!C$5), then =COUNTIF('7'!$F$21:$T$50,TABULATION!C$5), and so on.

COPYING indirect formula. When I copy, the lookup reference does not change. My formula is =INDIRECT("'"&$A247&"'!j106"). When I copy horizontally across cells, I want J106 to increase, ie j107, j108 etc. At the moment it remains at J106 and i have to manually increase the numbers by 1.

How do I change my formula so that the numbers increase automatically?

I have a spreadsheet containing quite a few lookups etc. I am trying to copy a cell across about 10 columns. This has to be done for about 50 different rows on about 20 different sheets, so I am looking for an alteration to the formula to help me rather than typing in the formula over and over;

='Basic Labour'!AD6*Rates!$E$526

Say this is in AD6, then in AE6 I would require

='Basic Labour'!AE6*Rates!$E$527

and so on across the region to be autofilled...

(It is multiplying the same cell in a different sheet against the 'next row down' in a rates lookup sheet).

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

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

'

'

Sheets("Reformatted").Select

Columns("C:C").Select

Selection.Find(What:="stop", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt _

[Code] .......

Formula is as follows:

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP($A$4,Day2,2,FALSE))," ",(VLOOKUP($A$4,Day2,2,FALSE)))

However I need the formula to stay the same but the DAYS to change to DAY 3, Day 4, etc as I drag it along..

I think this should be easier than I am making it out to be, but the answer is escaping me....

Among other things, I have a workbook with these worksheets in it: Hours, Cost, Profit, Revenue.

Columns A, B, C & D should be exactly the same on each worksheet. So, I have all the data for these columns entered into Hours, and then reference that worksheet on the other ones.

That works fine until I sort it differently and then instead of having row 2 reference row 2, it will be in row 9, etc.

Now I know I can use =+Hours!$A$2 for the absolute reference, but then i would manually have to change the reference on each cell.

SO - (finally the question) Is there a way to use the absolute reference without having to manually enter it into each cell?

I am looking for a formula or something - that when a reference number is used - it popluates cells from a list. Attached is a sample spreadsheet - 2 worksheets are being used - 1 is Purchase List and the 2nd is Fax Commitment. When reference no is filled in on the Fax Commitment sheet and it = the same reference no as on the Purchase List - I need it to populate the appropriate fields (in this case I have colour coded)

Wanted to know if there is a macro that can copy the selection of cells and paste it as a formula with original cell refernce.

For Example :

Copy Selection Cells - Say Cells A1 B1 & C1

and Paste It as formula In Cell D1 as =A1+B1+C1

I have data in worksheets that make up the 52 weeks of the year. Each sheet is numbered like this "WK1" "WK2" and so on... up to "WK52"

Each sheet is setup exactly the same so all cells are the same.

So I have a summary sheet that structures the data from all the week sheets to plot to graph all within the same file.

Thing is when I link the first cell to the first sheet say WK1 and then try to drag the formula down to the worksheet number does not increment

Tried the code in the beginning of this post and it displays the worksheet and cell number in the cell cant get the actual data to be displayed.

When I drag this formula down I want it to index the worksheet number

=WK44!$AG$14

Like this

=WK44!$AG$14

=WK45!$AG$14

=WK46!$AG$14

This is what I get in the cell when I use the formula given in the post

WK01! $AG$14

to copying a formula from one column to the next adjacent column and also incrementing the 2 numeric values inside the formula. Please see attached sample.

One value increments with each new column whereas the other increments with each new row. Please see attached sample.

And in the last row there is the average formula which must copy the new column and average the new column.

I tried to create a Macro in attached but it did not work with formulas.

I am trying to increment a row when i copy it across columns. I have searched for a couple hours on how to do this, but I have not come up with a solution that I can understand that works for my situation.

I found this page, but I guess I am too novice to comprehend it. [url]

I would like the number in this formula to increment when i copy it to the adjacent column.

This formula is in B178.

=IF(B8="x",A8,"")

So in C178 I want it to be

=IF(B9="x",A9,"")

I have this fairly simple formula which decides whether to shade a cell or not

=AND($X$1<>"TBD",R3<>"None",AC3="Y")

This is set in cell R3 and I want to copy it all the way down the cells in the R column. However, when I copy & paste (and copy and paste using paste special, formatting) the R3 and AC3 cell references do not update to match their relevant rows. eg If I highlight cell R26 the conditonal formatting formula still refers to cell R3 and AC3, not R26 & AC26. I'm using Excel 2010 but I don't recall this happening in 2003.

I am trying to link cells between two worksheets and am having some difficulty. For instance, in E17, I want the cell to reference cell H41 on sheet 2 and for F17 I want it to reference H42 on sheet 2, etc. However, using the formula =Sheet2!H41 when I cut and paste the formula it changes it to =Sheet2!I41 (ie it changes the column and keeps the row constant). I want to find a way to fill a large amount of cells this way and would prefer to not have to manually change each cell individually. I assume I would use the indirect( and the column( commands but can't seem to figure that one out.

I am using this formula to calculate a column of numbers that are both negative and positive numbers. =SUMPRODUCT(--($A$5:$A$9647<=TODAY()),--($A$5:$A$9647>TODAY()-365),$C$5:$C$9647). I need to keep this formula the same where it will calcuate on a rolling 365 day but I need the total to be only the absolute value (abs).
