# Copy Cell Contents Between Tabs Provided Cell References Match (VLOOKUP)

Apr 29, 2014

I have 2 inventory reports: what my store has and what my supplier has. I need to copy Tab1:K# to Tab2:T# provided that Tab1:A#'s contents match Tab2:A#'s contents. The A column represents the SKU of the item, but there is a difference in the amount of SKU's in each (my store sells ~6,000 items, supplier has ~10,000 items), so it's not as simple as sort by column A and copy pasting column K to column T.

For instance:
On Tab 1, A2's value is [1], K2's value is [9.38].
On Tab 2, A70's value is [1], K70's value is blank, but I need it to be [9.38], to match Tab 1's respective SKU.

I almost thought I had it figured out with VLOOKUP, but I cant seem to get it right... It doesn't reference the correct number.

## Match 2 Cells On 2 Worksheets And Copy Contents Of Another Cell

Jan 3, 2014

Setup: I have 2 worksheets with between 8 and 9,000 rows on each

Column A in both worksheets Sheet1 and Sheet2 have an email address in them.

Not all addresses in sheet1 will be on sheet2 and visa versa

Column J on Sheet 2 contains a date

What I need: Column M on Sheet1 is empty

I need a formula to place into Column M on Sheet1 that will

Look at Sheet1:A

Locate the corresponding value on Sheet2:A

Pull the date from Sheet2:J same row into Sheet1:M

## A Formula That References A Table Based On Contents Of Another Cell

May 20, 2008

Here is what I am trying to achieve:

I have a workbook with two tabs, on the first one there is one column and the top of the column(A1) is a dropdown containing the options 'Boy' or 'Girl'.
One the second worksheet I have two named tables (Boy and Girl) - these tables each contain a single column array with 5 names in each (so we have a table of 5 boys names and a table of 5 girls names)

What I want to happen is when a user selects an option from the dropdown in A1 the cell below(A2) is populated randomly with a name from the corresponding list.

I have achieved this initially using the following formula:
=IF(A1="Boy", INDEX(Boy,RandInt(1,10)), INDEX(Girl,RandInt(1,10)))

This works fine, but I will need to expand this for several dropdown options, so my new workbook will have a dropdown of car makes, and each make will have a list of the models associatied with the car make (e.g. Ford: Fiesta, Escort, Mondeo...)
But I do not want to have a ridiculously long nested IF statement for every car Make, so what I want to do is something along the lines of the following:

=INDEX([CONTENTS OF A1],RandInt(1,10))

So I use the text selected from the dropdown in A1 as the TableName in my formula - however, I cannot retrieve that to use in the formula without it coming back as a text with the "" included and my formula errors!

## Rename Tabs (Sheets) Based On Cell Contents

Nov 10, 2009

I have 5 sheets. In the first sheet I have set up 4 cells where I want the contents of them to automatically rename the other 4 corresponing sheets.

Eg.
In Sheet 1, Cell B6, I want the contents (which will be text) to be the name of sheet 2 automatically.

In Sheet 1, Cell B7, I want the contents (which will be text) to be the name of sheet 3 automatically.

## MATCH -- Using Cell References/variables?

Dec 8, 2008

I'm having problems with the MATCH function. If I use =MATCH(A2,'c:myfile.xlsx'!MyRange,0), it works. A2 is the value that I want to look up. 'c:myfile.xlsx'!MyRange is the full path of a range in an another XLSX.

However, if I assign the file name to a cell and try: =MATCH(A2,A3,0). where A3 has the exact same path as the line that work, Excel returns #N/A. I also tried a match on a range in the same tab of the same spreadsheet, and it didn't work. Is it possible to do what I'm trying to do? The file location of the external XLSX is going to change, and I wish I could just update one cell rather than every single cell that contains a MATCH.

## Check On Cell Contents And If Match Change Another Cell

May 29, 2012

I want to check the contents of all the cells in S Column to see if it equals "Process Recover/Rebill"

If True, then Change corresponding cell in C Column to "Manual Correction"

I have this VBA and it doesn't look like anything is processing. It appears that I must have something missing in the If line..message about missing.

(tot_new is the number of rows of data) I begin in the 3rd row.

For Counter = 3 To tot_new
If Range("S" & Counter & ").Value = "Process Recovery/Rebill" Then
Range("T" & Counter & ").Value = "Manual Correction"
End If
Next Counter

## Excel 2007 :: How To Copy A Cell Without Auto-adjustment Of Fix Cell References

Jun 15, 2014

Assume I have a cell M24 with a formula like

=M10 + \$H24 - \$I24*0.35

As you can see B10 is a fix reference (due to omitted \$) which should NOT be auto-adjusted but be kept.

Now I want to copy the formular to lots of cells below cell M24. therefore I mark cell M24 and click copy in context menu.

Then I drag/expand the blinking cell border to lets say the 20 cells below. As I result I expect e.g. in cell M25 a formula like

=M10 + \$H25 - \$I25*0.35

Unfortunately I got

=M11 + \$H25 - \$I25*0.35

So the fix reference is adjusted as well.

How can I tell Excel 2007 to NOT auto-adjust fix references in formulas?

## How To Match Number Strings In Cell Contents

Sep 3, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with 60k lines. One of the columns contains barcodes as per the example below, with a suffix of -XXX-XXX where the XXX are numbers. I want to highlight all the cells where the -XX-XX are the same number (as in the example below -303-303) how I can do this with a formula as I've around 30 spreadsheets each with 60,000 lines I need to sort through?

2500071189898-303-302
2500071189898-303-303
2500071189898-303-304

## VLOOKUP Display The Contents Of A Cell

Feb 25, 2009

I have a field set up to display the contents of a cell (sheet 1) using VLOOKUP if a match is found in a separate worksheet (sheet 4). Here is the code I'm using:

=VLOOKUP(C:C,Sheet4!G:G,1,FALSE)

Is there a way, if there is a match, to display the contents of another cell of sheet 4 in the cell of sheet 1?

EX:
Sheet 1 C:C matches Sheet 4 G:G
Sheet 1 C:C displays I:I from Sheet 4

## VLOOKUP; Use Cell Contents As Sheet Name

Dec 8, 2003

I have =VLOOKUP(A4,Jan!A:D,2,FALSE) in my workbook, but I would like to be able to have the sheet name (Jan) as a cell reference?

I would like to be able to type the first three letters of the month in C1, so that the formulas automatically update to look up the data for the sheet specified in C1. Can this be done?

## Macro To Validate Contents Of Cell And If Not Match Send Msg Box

May 21, 2014

Userform that people use. I need validating the users input into the form.

1. Need to validate that A1 only has 3 letters (Alpha)
2. Need to validate that A2 is not left blank
3. Need to validate A3 has only 10 digits

My state is that when the user hits the submit button in the user form the macro checks for these validations above and if everything is ok emails the sheet. However if the user havent inputed the data correctly a msg box will pop to let them know what is wrong. If thats the case i do not want the sheet emailed. below is the email code i'm using

HTML Code:

Sub SendMail()
' Copy the sheet(1)
ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1).Copy
' Send Email
.SendMail Recipients:=Array("email.address@email.com"), Subject:="Test" & Format(Date, "dd/mmm/yy")
.Close SaveChanges:=False
End With
End Sub

## Copy Formulas With Cell References

Jan 12, 2009

I have a formula that references data on another spreadsheet with multiple worksheets. I have a new worksheet for each month (Jan, Feb, Mar, ...).

How can I copy formulas in series that keep the cell references the same, but change to the appropriate month. So for the forumula below, I want to fill a series down in a column to represent each month.

Right now I have to go in and edit it to change the month to the next month (i.e. change Jan to Feb.)

An example of the formula is below. In this case, I would want to fill the series down a column and have the months update in series but keep the cell reference the same.

## Index Match Offset - Find Contents Of Reference Cell

Jun 21, 2012

How can I modify the following formula to find the contents of reference cell, for example if the cell reference (G\$3) is equal to 9 I want it to use 8 instead.

Code:
IF(ISERROR(INDEX(tra!\$E\$2:\$E\$1100,MATCH(G\$3,tra!\$C\$2:\$C\$1100,0))),"",
INDEX(tra!\$E\$2:\$E\$1100,MATCH(G\$3,tra!\$C\$2:\$C\$1100,0)))

I tried using G\$3-1 but this doesn't appear to work.

## How To Copy A Formula Without Changing Cell References

Feb 18, 2014

I want to copy =d8*k10 into several cells, but the references keep changing. I've tried several things that I've found on the internet, but nothing seems to work and the I can't seem to copy to a columnof cells.

## Copy Formulas While Keeping Cell References

Sep 1, 2009

I need to copy a bunch of cells that contain formulas without altering the cell references. I know I could change each formula to contain absolute cell references, then copy and paste special with formulas, but this is alot of work, and following that I'd need to change the references back again from absolute to relative in both locations. So, is there a way to quickly copy and paste formulas in multiple cells without altering the cell references?

## Find Function Where Search Criteria Isn't Exact Match For Cell Contents

Dec 19, 2011

I am new to VBA and am having difficulties in getting a find function to successfully locate search criteria within cell. When the search criteria matches exactly that of the cell contents then the code works; however should the search criteria only form part of the total cell contents (such as a seach for "the" in a cell containing "the cat sat on the mat") the code doesn't recognise it.

Essentially, I need the code to search a range for the required string and if found within a cell activate that cell and populate a combobox with the full cell contents of the activecell.offset(0,-2).

The relevant section of code attached below:

Dim role_count as range
Dim role as string

If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("Role_Count"), Role) 0 Then
Range("role_count").Select
Selection.Find(What:=Role, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:= _
xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False _
, SearchFormat:=False).Activate

Me.Controls(ComboBoxName) = ActiveCell.Offset(0, -2).Value

## Copy And Paste Formula Without Changing Cell References

Mar 5, 2014

I have one sheet with all the formulas for the entire workbook and would like to copy and paste the formulas from Sheet 1 to Sheet 2...Sheet 1 to Sheet 3 etc. without changing the cell referening in the original formula. I am not too sure how .formula works.

Sub CopyAndPaste()
' To copy formulas from Summary sheet to their respective sheets

With Worksheets("Summary")
.Range("R3").Copy Worksheets("2").Range("X3").Formula = Worksheets("Summary").Range("R3")

## Copy Non Absolute Cell References In Conditional Formatting Formula?

Dec 3, 2012

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.

## Macro To Copy Formula While Keeping Original Cell References

Feb 17, 2009

I'm trying to create a VBA macro that will allow me to copy a formula from one sheet to another whilst keeping all the original references.

E.g.

If the formula on Sheet1 is:

= sum(A1:B6)

then the copied formula on Sheet2 would read

=sum(Sheet1!A1:Sheet1!B6)

You can do this by cuting the cell, but I don't want to do this, I want to leave the original cell unchanged.

I'm sure there is some simple VBA code to do this, but I can't seem to figure it out.

## Dynamic Named Range :: Does Not Copy The Formula That References A Cell From Another Line

May 29, 2007

I am having a few problems with dynamic named range in excel 2000.

When adding new data to the range, excel extends the range correctly, but only copies some of the formula correctly. It does not copy the formula that references a cell from another line.

I am trying to create a excel spreadsheet and have a formula =e10-e9, which does not copy down.

## Copy Cell Contents And All Formatting

Nov 23, 2008

I am trying to copy a column of cells from one sheet to another, but also want to keep all the formatting. The origin sheet has times, but when I copy these to the destination sheet they are displayed as decimal numbers (using the code snippet below). I can change these back to times by formatting the cells using the format painter after the macro completes but I would like the VBA to do this for me. (using 2002 SP3).

## Copy Part Of Cell Contents

## VLookup Cell Formats Don't Match

Jul 23, 2014

I have a report which has list of outstanding invoices on Sheet1 and I enter invoice nos and Notes on to DATA sheet then by using Vlookup function I transfer the Notes to Sheet1 under "Notes Column K",

Some reason vlookup doesn't work because of the invoice number's format on Sheet1 doesn't match with the invoice numbers on the DATA sheet because they come from SQL server data base table,

So every time I refresh the Sheet1's data then I need to do Text To Colum on "Colum D" to make it work but this is not a solution because every time I refresh the Sheet1's data Vlookup formula doesn't work.

Is there a SQL formula that I can add to my SQL code which can automatically do Text to Column on the "Column D"?

## Structured References And With Cell References I Get A Column Of Zeros

Nov 25, 2007

It is suppose to be that if the employee is "FT" and has worked >=4 years the return is 15. But if the employee is FT and has worked 2 years but less than 4 years then it is suppose to return 10 (these are days off) Or if the employee is FT and has worked 1 year, but less than 2 then it should return 5 days off. And all the others in the column get no days off.

I have tried to do it with structured references and with cell references I get a column of zeros!

## Copy Based On Cell Contents Macro

May 13, 2013

Basically lets say I have in cell A1 to A10 floor access data i.e. Users who used their ID cards to access a room.

Now the data always starts with either Rejected or Admitted then the user's name and then the card number and the access floor etc. the card currently has.

What I am looking for is that the macro should first check if the cell has Rejected or Admitted written in it - this I can do myself using =Left(A1,8) which should give me the helper column I need.

Then based on this I want it to only copy the name of the individual i.e. it should look in the cell and only copy whatever is written between "Rejected" and "(Card". The cell data is something like this:

Rejected Doe, John (Card #123456) at ABC 123 Floor1/Floor2/Floor3/Floor4 Door 1 [In] [Clearance]
