# Create Formula That Links To Another Sheet Based On User Input

Jan 8, 2009

I'm trying to create a formula similar to this:

=Calculations!(Indirect("N"&A2)-Indirect("AB"&A2)+Indirect("AA"&A2)

The idea is that the user will enter a value in cell A2. That number will determine the appropriate rows in the formula above.

## Create A Dynamic Array So That When A User Enters The First Sheet Name Via An Input Box

Nov 20, 2008

I'm trying to create a dynamic array so that when a user enters the first sheet name via an input box, excel will know to select the other sheets with ending (2), (3), (4) etc.

Currently this code works only if there are 4 sheets present (as I set this way), anything lower/higher is out of range.

How do I make it so that it will select sheets if there are less than 4 sheets present?

I tried nesting, but I pretty sure this array needs redimming or something. Is ubound a better option?

## Cell Based On Formula And Allow User Input?

Jan 13, 2010

Cell A5 has a Yes_No pull-down list for data validation. In cell B5, I want to display the value 0.002 only if A5 is "Yes". If A5 is "No", I want the user to be able to enter a number into the B5 cell without destroying the formula.

## Creating Summation Formula Based On User Input.

Jan 8, 2009

I'm trying to create a formula similar to this: =sum(B7:B & 8*A2+3). What I want the formula to do is start in B7 and go to B###. The cell number is based on user input. So if the user enters "24" in cell A2, then 8*24 = 192, 192 + 3 = 195, so the formula would be: =sum(B7:B195). Can I do this in a cell, or do I need to run it in a macro?

## Copy Formula Across Based On User-defined Input Range

Apr 4, 2008

I have a cell B10 which contains a formula.

I would like a macro which copies this formula across the same row.

However, the macro should prompt the user to select a range.

Based on the range selected and in particular the columns in this selected range, I would like the macro to copy the formula only for the columns specified in the selected range.

## How To Create A User Input Dialog Box

Nov 13, 2008

I have a macro that's running quite well and is cross-posted here:

[url]

What I need to do is allow for user input. I want to create a dialog box that pops up and asks for an input range, when the user runs the macro. Values can only be from 1 - 50. And the user won't be allowed to select broken sequences, like 6, 9, 12-15.

They would have to be continuous, i.e. 6 - 15, etc. I'm still very new to VBA. I can play with the control toolbox, but I have very little understanding of how to interface with the components that I'm adding/creating. Once I have that range, I want to use the inputs as the 'start' and 'stop' points for my loop. So I need to capture the values and pass them as input parameters, I'm guessing.

I can modify the loop to accept the inputs, I'm just not sure how to capture them from a user input dialog box.

## Create User Input For LARGE Function

May 18, 2009

I want to create a user input for a "LARGE" function so that I can then return the specified # of "large" items. i.e. user wants to get the top X number of users, user then enters number either into a dialog box or cell, code then looks at the number and populates a range of cells based on the input value. The current code that I am using simply refers to an existing table (r9:r30) that I then used the auto fill to copy to cells below it.

=INDEX(Sheet2!B\$20:B\$961,MATCH((LARGE(Sheet2!\$F\$20:\$F\$961,\$R9)),Sheet2!\$F\$20:\$F\$961,0))

I really want to be able to just get a user dialog box going that will automatically populate both the range r9:rx (where X is the user input) and then also copy the above formula into the x number of cells below it.

## Create A Cell That Allows The User To Input A Number

Jul 30, 2009

I am working on a spreadsheet and would like to create a cell that allows the user to input a number (1 to 5) which will then equate to a percentage(%). I would then like this to deduct that percentage from a total number...

To try and explain this.. Should the user input 1 into the cell, this would then equate to 3% - this would then deduct from a total that percentage. Input 2 = 5% etc..

## Input Box To Create And Input Info Into A Formula Which Then Populates A Cell With A Value

Jul 24, 2014

I am trying to create a macro which gives me an input box. I need to enter 2 numbers into the input box. It would be as follows:

Input Box Msg 1 - "What is your labor cost?" (NUM1)
Input Box Msg 2 - "What is your productivity rate?" (NUM2)

Then I need the macro to take this info and enter it into a formula which changes according to the row which you are on. (I need the macro to work based on which ever cell I currently have selected). The formula would be this if I currently had a cell on row 10 selected:

=(NUM1*(NUM2*\$H10))/\$H10

So, if I currently had cell L10 selected, and I ran the macro and put 100 in for "NUM1" and 10 for "NUM2" and my sheet had 20 in cell H10, then the macro would enter the number 1,000 into cell L10. If I had L500 selected, then the macro would enter the final number into cell L500 based on what value H500 contained.

## Incremental Numbering Based Upon User Input

Jun 15, 2008

I have created a macro that processes through information for the creation of checks.

I would like to have a way for the user to input a check number, and Excel to take that number, drop it into cell A2, then increment it and drop the next number in A3, and so on until all of the checks have been numbered. The process should stop at such a point as there is no more text in column B.

Here is an example. Let's say I have 35 checks to write. The first check number is 200. I would want a user box to pop up which asks me for the first check number. I would enter 200. Then the process would place the number 200 in cell A2 (A1 is part of the header information for the checks.) In cell A3, the number 201 would be placed. The final check number would drop into cell A36. No check numbers would appear in cells A37 and greater because cell B37 is empty, signifying that there is no further check data.

## Delete Rows Based On User Input

Mar 6, 2009

1) Allow user input of a number between 1 and 999

2) Search column three and delete any rows that don't match this number.

I have some code that would delete any rows within a certain column, based on predefined criteria and i've tried modifying it to suit my needs.

## Sum A Range Of Cells Based On User Input

May 2, 2009

I have a range of cells that I want to sum based on a range inputed by the user. The range begins with cell c27 and ends with cell au27. I want the user to be asked the beginning cell and ending cell of the range they want to sum and then output the answer.

## Updating Value In Table Based On User Input

Feb 10, 2010

I have one sheet to act as a splash page for user input. The second sheet stores all relevant data. My goal is for the user to input a numerical value in a cell (or input box) and then click a submit button. The code for the macro should look at a cell on sheet 1 which displays the primary key of the row in the table on sheet

2. Based on that primary key, it should look to sheet 2 and then insert the value into the table in the correct row and column. The column headings are the days of the week, and the specific day the user is concerned with is also displayed on sheet 1.

Sheet 1:

A1 = Day of the week
A2 = Unique primary key
A3 = user input value

Sheet 2:
table
Rows=primary key (001 - 999)
Columns = days of the week (Monday - Friday)

example:
user inputs '5' on sheet 1 with 'Tuesday' and '007' selected in their respective cells. I would then like 5 to be copied to B7 (row 7 for 007 and column B for Tuesday).

## Archive Data Based On User's Input

Jun 14, 2006

I am trying to move (archive) data from one sheet to another sheet based on a date range provided by the user’s input. If the date on sheet “list” in the cells in range R9:R10000 fall within that date range the following takes place. The rows that meet the date range per the user’s input in the range of R9:R1000 are copied and just the values are pasted into the next empty row starting with row 7 on the “report” worksheet. The cells that are copied on the “List” worksheet are NOT deleted but the contents are cleared. The reason for this is because there are formulas/links in those cells.

I have attached a worksheet example and have some VBA code but it does not work.

## Copy & Insert Row Based On User Input

Dec 27, 2007

I have managed to write a macro that almost does what I require, but it inserts the copied row at the end and I want it to insert before the row it's just copied. Any ideas how I can modify the code to do this?

## Macro To Read User Input For Sheet Locations

Jan 22, 2010

I'm working with a workbook that has about 75 sheets. I need a macro that will copy the info in a certain couple of ranges from one sheet to the same ranges in another. This would not be a problem if it was always the same two sheets. But I need the user to be able to specify which sheet he wants to copy from and which sheet he wants to copy to.

The ranges on the sheets will always remain the same, just the sheet name needs to change. I created drop down boxes for the user to choose the copy from and copy to sheets, but I don't know how to insert that into the VBA code. The way I've designed it, the macro needs to read the result from the user that is on sheet "Index" in cell H5 to copy from and N5 to copy to. The result in those cells is the actual sheet name.

Here's the simple part of the code so far:

Sheets("MM Ades 64z").Select
Range("B8:B59").Select
Selection.Copy
Sheets("MM Pnch 64z").Select
Range("B8:B59").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste
Sheets("MM Ades 64z").Select
Range("D8:D59").Select
Selection.Copy
Sheets("MM Pnch 64z").Select
Range("D8:D59").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste
Sheets("MM Ades 64z").Select
Range("J8:O59").Select
Selection.Copy
Sheets("MM Pnch 64z").Select
Range("J8:O59").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste
Sheets("TMMC").Select
Range("M1").Select
End Sub

## Need User Input Value Or Formula Value In Same Cell

Sep 15, 2014

I would like a cell to have user input. If there is no input then the cell should reference a value in another cell. My strategy was to use a formula in another cell to check to see if the user input cell was empty. If it was empty then the formula propagated the cell. If it had user inputted data then it stayed like it was.

Here is an example:
Begin Invent
1000
Gallons

End Invent
User input or
formula here
Gallons

Received

Gallons

Used

Gallons

I want the user to be able to input a value for the End Invent cell right below 1000. If there is no value I want that same cell to mirror the cell above it with the 1000 in it.

## How Do I Allow User Input In A Cell With A Formula

Feb 19, 2009

I have a table with 4 radio buttons that assume certain data in three cells when they are selected. I have used the IF command to getthe information to appear in these boxes when the cooresponding radio button is selected.

I want the user to be able to either leave the selection as it is presented to them, have the option to change the data if it doesn't fit their scenerio.

Example: button 1 "Electric" makes the data "\$0.12", "\$per kWh", & "100%" appear in the three cells. Each button produces different data in these boxes, however if when button 1 is selected, the user's electric cost per kWh is \$0.10, I want them to be able to type that in without changing my preset default.

## Auto Generation Of String Based On User Input

Jun 3, 2009

Without using VBA, how can i generate strings say

x1
x2
x3
x4
x5

assuming user has inputed two numbers 1 and 5. I know you might have lots of questions like how the hell user input is coming when there is no usage of VBA.

## Insert Number Of Rows Based On User Input

Apr 23, 2014

I have an excel sheet that I've automated for my shop ... Basically it copies a set of rows from one sheet, asks for which cell you want to start the paste at, then pastes it... Here's what I have so far:

[Code] .....

So I tried to use a variation of strReturn to indicate number of rows wanted but that didn't work ... Basically I'm going to create the "data" to include 50 rows, but have it selectable for the user to say they only want 5, 7 or 29 rows ...

## Automate Calculation Of Output Based On User Input

Nov 2, 2009

What I am trying to do is get the ROW 13 and ROW 18 outputs depending on inputs in ROW 2 to 5. Inputs in ROW 2 to 5 can have any value in any year. I would like to perform the calculations if the value in column U is 2 (if 1 then no action required)

I don't need ROW 10, 11, 12 separately if that is easier ...I am interested in getting the ROW 13 basically.

## Filter From Workbook Based On User Input Form

Aug 6, 2012

I need to filter data based on criteria based on user input form that is in another workbook. For example, I have a list of departments, I want to create a userform for the user to enter department number and then have excel filter only the data belonging to that department. The person will then update the department records and save the file.

Here is partial code I have been working on but having difficulties:

Dim FilterCriteria
Dim CurrentFileName As String
'Get the current file's name
CurrentFileName = ActiveWorkbook.Name 'how do I call another workbook?

[Code]...

## Find Value In Array Based On Partial Input From User

Feb 22, 2013

I am trying to find a value in an array based on partial input from a user.

The user will enter the last four digits of a number.

Then the formula should find the number in a list and return that complete number

I will explain using example.

Here is the list of numbers (array):

3003280197
3003283233
3003625456

User input= 3233

formula output = 3003283233

## Code To Delete Rows Based On User Input

Aug 21, 2008

I am using the following piece of code to delete unwanted rows from a worksheet:

Sub DeleteDates()

FinalRow = Cells(65536, 3).End(xlUp).Row
For i = FinalRow To 1 Step -1
If Cells(i, 3).Value Like "*2007*"
Cells(i, 1).EntireRow.Delete
End If

Next i

End Sub

What I am working with is a sheet of about 5000 customer appointments going back to the beginning of 2006. A have peiced together a lot of code to format it exactly as I want and to create a pivot table of what is remaining after the rubbish has been deleted.

However I am finding that I need to keep amending and re-running this bit of code, depending on the date range I want to look at. For example the code above will delete all appointments made in 2007.

My question is: is there a way that I could incorporate an input box, whereby excel asks the user for a start date and an end date and deletes any rows outwith that range?

Some important info: All of the dates are in column C, in the format mmm yyyy

I would only need to narrow down to a month - so for example mar 2008 - jun 2008

## Auto-Fill Data Based On User Input

Dec 22, 2009

Excel 2003, I have a list of products with corresponding prices located on a hidden worksheet. I have a spot on another worksheet where users can select a certain product and next to that cell there is a column for price. What I want excel to do is auto-populate the price cell based on what product the user selects. For instance, if the user selects OD2000N, then I want the price to auto-populate with the corresponding price that is found on the hidden sheet. Like I said before, I know this has probably been answered, maybe even mulitple times but I can't seem to find the appropriate thread.

## Order Columns & Tabs Based On User Input

Jan 9, 2009

How would I reorder columns & tabs based on a form where the user can put them into order that they would like the columns? I forsee some type of form where the user can dsignate the order and then start a macro that will sort both the columns and tabs.

## Apply Formula To Cell That Allows User Input?

Apr 14, 2014

Cell A1 is going to be used as my true/false value to trigger the formula. Cell A2 must allow user input to calculate "what if" scenarios however, if cell A1 value = true then cell A2 = 0.

I think I need to place my formula into A3 to allow the user their input to A2 without overwriting my formula. Problem is if I place the = sign in front of IF, the formula does not work the way I need it to. If I don't place the = sign in front of IF excel just treats it as a text entry.

=IF(A1="Actual",A2=0)
IF(A1="Actual",A2=0)

I have inherited this workbook and am just trying to automate the functionality to streamline.

## Dynamic Histogram That Adjusts Bin Size Based On User Input

Jul 2, 2014

I'm trying to come up with a histogram chart that adjusts Bin Size based on user input. I've come up with the formulas for Bins and Frequency, but am struggling when it comes to charting the data to dynamically update when the user changes Bin Size. How to make the x-axis dynamically adjust with the number of Bins.

## Referencing Cell Based On User Input That Corresponds To VLookup

Jun 26, 2014

So my issue this time is that I have a bunch of columns that correspond to a month. If the user wants to view data from that month column then they have to link to that cell specifically (the worksheet being used is different than the one in which the month columns are)

My goal was to create a single cell in which the user typed in a month abbreviation such as jan, feb, mar.. so on and so forth. From there they correspond to a vlookup table which tells you which month is in what column (because that part never changes) so jan is in column c and feb is in column d... continuing until december is in column n. So the vlookup corresponds to the table and that works fine, type jan into the cell and the vlookup returns c. So i think this will work.

My problem is that in the cell I am typing this in I want it to be a part of a whole cell reference such as c5 or d7 where the 5 or 7 is a constant (I have that part down) however the reference is to another sheet. So in sheet 2 I want to reference sheet 1 i.e.

Formula: [Code].....

<-- is the desired return.

Right now (in sheet 2) I have

Formula: [Select Code] .....

Which returns the desired d5 but as text and not referencing sheet one. I tried

Formula: [Code]....

But this makes the vlookup malfunction (i think it starts looking in sheet 1 for the month cell but it is not and can not be there.

SO how do i force a vlookup to turn into a cell reference, and how do i make that cell reference come from a different worksheet without causing the vlookup to malfunction.

## Copy Paste Specific Row Of Data Based On User Input?

Apr 14, 2014

I need to copy and paste the specific dates from the specific city that the user will insert in the "dash" sheet.
Basically, I need the macro to read the city and range of dates that the user will type into the "dash" sheet and copy the columns "AA" to "AD" from rows specified by the dates input. Once it has been copied, it has to be special pasted just the value onto the sheet "1" beginning at location B2.

the the data will not be available as it is vlookups to another excel sheet that i have not provided. I have deleted the data, but you can pretty much put 1's everywhere.
