Create A Formula Which Sums The Values Associated With Several Defined Names
Aug 6, 2007
I am looking to create a formula which sums the values associated with several defined names. For example, I have a workbook with the following defined names SalesPerson1Total, SalesPerson2Total, etc. and these amounts are all sourced from multiple tabs. The amount of defined names (i.e. 'SalesPersons') is variable, therefore, I want the formula to read Sum the values of all defined names which are named with the following convention 'SalesPerson(X)Total'.
I have a situation where I copy a worksheet to further on in the same workbook (essentially, using it as a template to create new sheets). I have certain cells that contain references to named ranges, e.g. on NewSheet1, cell $A$1 contains =StudyNo. Unfortunately, it shows as #NAME?. But, if I go to the formula bar and press enter, it resolves the name properly. I thougt maybe that automatic calculation was on manual but it is not. Why is this happening and what can I do to resolve it.
I'm trying to simplify a spreadsheet i've been given by defining names for certain values. I'm using Excel 2013. Is there any way to have all of the newly defined names I've created for cells automatically be inserted into all of the formulas that exist in the spreadsheet?
Old formula in one sheet of a workbook looks up a cell in another sheet with the value of ='sheet1!A1
I've given the value of cell A1 in Sheet1 a name of dgwd.
How do I get every formula in the workbook that references 'sheet1!A1 to change the value within that formula to dgwd?
I have a workbook with many, many worksheets. On each worksheet there is a column called "Cost Code". I need a Macro to locate all like "Cost Code" values and extract data from several cells along that row. Macro would then tally the values from all those like cells on numerous worksheets and place sum on a seperate worksheet in the same workbook, on a "Totals" worksheet page.
For instance -The "Cost Code" value Macro to look for is 1000. This value is located on several worksheets. For every instance of "Cost Code" 1000 Macro is to find value of "Material Costs" in that row (always column M) and value of "Labor Hours" in that row (always column P). Macro would tally all "Material Costs" for "Cost Code" 1000 and put that sum on a "Totals" worksheet page in a specified cell. Macro would do the same for all "Labor Hours" for "Cost Code" 1000.
I have spent a good amount of time trying to create the below using botched IF functions, SUMIFS, SUMIF formulas etc.
Basically I have a sheet (called Sheet1) with the following columns: A - Date (by individual day DD/MM/YYYY) B - A catagory (so using the old example, Apples, Orange, Pears) C - Price.
I would like to be able to create a formula, whereby I can sum the Total sales for each catagory across each month onto a summary sheet (sheet2).
I would use pivot tables, however am not sure how i can make all the require data appear permanently in the best way, especially if there is a one liner that can be done more easily. So far I have managed to create a sum dependent on month, but have been unable to encorporate the catagory.
I'm trying to enter a series of formulas into a worksheet using vba. However, this code is giving me Run time error '1004', along with the description in the title. This is the first formula (they're all relatively similar).
I have a long customer listing, names 5 to 36 characters and several with their location in the name as well as a few common duplicate names. I am trying to produce sheet where the customers name once selected opens in the customers spreadsheet and data can be added/amended for sales etc.The lists are not in alphabetical order as when created a customer number is automatically allocated. My aim is just to type in the first letter of the name and the dropdown appears the customer is selected and their card appears. I have tried data validation, lookup, vlookup, Dropdown and Match/find. they only return the first record found and no sign of any others. Find returned all instances of the letter appearing in every name.
Trying to use a Defined Name as the cell reference in VBA. The idea is to change the value of a couple of other cells base on the value of the cell "FreightRow". I am starting with a Message box just to make sure the code was reading the cell reference.
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) Dim FR As Range Set FR = ThisWorkbook.Names("FreightRow").RefersTo If FR = 3 Then MsgBox ("Help") End If End Sub
I have a column J that is named Premium. If I use the function =INT(Premium) in K4 then it returns the integer for the value in J4. If I do the same thing with a UDF then the function argument receives all the values in column J. The author of the function says this is how UDFs work by design. Is there a way to use defined names with UDFs and have it work the way it does with built in functions?
I use Vlookup's a lot so i define my range with specific names a lot. But when i want to clear the range names via Insert>Name>Define>"Select the range name then click delete. but instead of clicking on each range name, i would like to to delete all.
I can create a macro to do this but some days i use different range names that other days so the below will not work exactly.
I am currently overhauling a massive workbook, that previously relied on an absurd amount of named ranges in order to run vlookups. I no longer need these named ranges and would like to delete them to unclog the workbook. Currently I only see a way to delete them one by one. Is there a way to mass delete all of them?
1) I'm relatively new to arrays, but what I need to do is generate a list of file names and the sheets within each one. I would like to use an array for this, but since I don't have much experience.... well....that's why I'm here. Can someone point me in the right direction?
2) And the second part of this.... I was planning on using the FileSystemObject to determine the files in a selected folder and loop through that list of files, opening each one and harvesting the required info (file name and all sheet names). Should I use the FSO or is there something built into Excel that might be better (and also limit the number of dependencies for this little "project" of mine).
I have a spreadsheet with golfers handicaps, golfers names down the left in column A in rows 3-35. Row 2 has the event numbers titles 1 to 18 (18 events in a year). i need a graph that has the person as the vert axis and the horizontal axis needs to be the event numbers, so i can read down for the person and across to see how there handicaps change from each different event. i have attached the data below.
I have several SumIf formulas that references a Cell in a Main Reference Tab. This is useful to me as I have over 100 tabs of data points and having a reference cell with that text is easier to change one time vs 100 times.
My question is this: Will Defined Names be "faster" than using a reference cell? With over 100 tabs, there's a lot of formulas and I'm looking for a faster way to get the same output without Excel Memory overload.
This thread is related to this thread. Offset, Match, Max Formula In the Insert - Name - Define window:
If one wants to copy a formula from the "Refers to" box and the formula extends past the right side of the box, how does one use "select all" or mark the whole formula from beginning to end so it can be copied without messing up the formula. At the moment, when I try this, it changes the formula to include the active cell of the worksheet that's open when I use the Ctrl + c etc. I have tried Ctrl + Ins and Ctrl + a and Ctrl + c. None of these are working for me.
The question is pretty much described in the post title. Here is the situation: I have a workbook that has data plugged into it manually throughout many sheets, and at the end there are a few sheets with different graphs and charts that are generated by a macro. This macros works perfectly - all the data is accurate and the figures are perfect when compared with a manual count. The problem I have is that the cells where the macro puts the summed values are in a chart that is supposed to create a bar graph. Normally, if I change a value that a bar graph uses I see the bar graph change - but that does not happen with the cells that have values placed in them by the macro. I also have a section that sums the values in the chart to make sure it's running right, and these values do not update automatically as well. The cells have the formula =SUM(B3:B12) and so on, in them. Right now, every time that I run the macro I need to go into the cell with the formula, hit 'enter', and then it does the summation. Is there a way to correct this problem, or is this something that is part of excel?
I have a summary page that includes the titles for each tab within the excel 2003 workbook. I want to use the names of the tabs in the summary page and create it into a formula to lookup fixed cells within the various tabs. Sorry for not uploading an excel doc but I was at work earlier and the thread did not load for some reason, so I am reposting it.
