# Define Cell To Display Formula Result In?

Jun 5, 2014
I am trying to find a way to display text that is the product of a concatenate function in a defined cell, but not to have the function itself in that cell. Basically, I want to have the below function in cell A1. I want to add a command to it to take the result and display it in cell A2.

=CONCATENATE(C5,"_",'Attachment 3-A'!C9:E9,"_",IF(C5="","",IF(C6="MPL",IF(VLOOKUP(C5,MPL!B:F,5,FALSE)="Lease","Lease_Contributable",

IF(VLOOKUP(C5,MPL!B:F,5,FALSE)="Pre-Lease","Managed_Pre-Lease",

IF(VLOOKUP(C5,MPL!B:F,5,FALSE)="Non-Contributable","Managed_Non-Contributable","Error"))),

IF(VLOOKUP(C5,Sale!B:F,5,FALSE)="Assignable","Lease_Assignable","Managed_Non-Assignable"))))

The reason for this is that I need the cell to be selectable (it is generating a file name that needs to be selected and copied), but I don't want the code behind it to be seen. I can't find a way to make the cell selectable AND hide the formula from being seen when the cell is selected. This is because our people keep copying the formula rather than the resulting text.

I was hoping for something like a DISPLAYIN(target) function, but it doesn't seem to exist.

I need a formula to add a value for example to (w=5 and m=2) and ? must result in [6w+ date above ? i.e-31-May-12].

Also note if w is changed to m, then formula also must evaluate value for m ie 2.

Sub startup

Dim numwords As Integer

numwords = WorksheetFunction. CountA("H5:H64")

Range("H1").Select

Selection.FormulaR1C1 = numwords

I have a quick question regarding this simple code thats been drviing me nuts. There x distinct pieces of Data in the range speciifed, but when i run this code, the reply posted in cell H1 is 1, instead of x.

Eventually the code will be built to check if the result is odd or even and then add an entry into the first blank cell if the result is odd.

I have a formula in A1 that I would like to execute from A2. I want the A1 to display the formula (so no "="), but I would like cell A2 to execute the formula in A1.

If A1 contains: "SUM(1+2)", how can I get A2 to display "3" without reproducing the formula?

A1: SUM(1+2)

A2: ????

I suppose I'm looking for something like this:

A2: ==A1

But, of course, that doesn't work.

If I do this it gets close:

A2: ="="&A1

But that returns "=SUM(1+2)" instead of executing the formula.

I am using the below formula to find the latest date (column N) based on fund (column G) and Vendor (column O) reference. How can I find (column I) where the balance of that payment is? I know there are formulas like INDIRECT RC[-1] but how to add them to my formula.

{=MAX(IF(Payments!G:G=B4,IF(Payments!O:O=C4,Payments!N:N)))}

Hopefully you will be able to help again. Is it possible to do a vlookup that references data on other tabs within the worksheet so that the result of the formula is in the cell not the formula.

So if my vlookup was =vlookup(a2,$a$1:$b$12,3,0) and the result was john smith i want just john smith in the cell. I know about copy and paste values but i was looking for a more automatic way. One that doesn't need intervention.

When I drag my VLOOKUP formula down a column in Excel 2010, the return value copies the formula result from the original VLOOKUP formula result. For example, if the first VLOOKUP returns a value of 0.5, I expect to see 0.5 or 1 in the cell below that one. However, I get 0.5 which is not the expected result for the cell below.

When, I click the fx on the cells below, the expected return values appear in the formula result. After I click OK, the expected formula results updates and now appears in the cell.

I'm not sure what is causing this issue. My computer was updated recently from an old machine to a new one. I have never experienced this issue before.

I have a s/s which is built on IF functions and references other sheets and I have used the s/s in the past without issue. However now I want to ammend the formula a little and excel will only display the formula itself, not the result of the formula. I have tried CTRL ~ to turn on/off the show formula function but this makes no difference.

My reason for changeing the current formula is that I need to turn a 2 (numeric) to 02 (which can be either numeric or text). This is the new formula.

=IF($A4="","",IF(VLOOKUP($A4,HCGTH1_DATA,22)=2,"02",VLOOKUP($a4,HCGTH1_DATA,22)))

Is there an issue with the formula or some setting in excel?

I have a formula on cell A1, if the result of this: =SUM(COUNTIF(F:F;M40);COUNTIF(M:M;M40)) is equal to 1, I want the cell to display the word OK.

I have tryed this but it didn't work:

=IF((SUM(COUNTIF(F:F;M40);COUNTIF(M:M;M40)))=1;"ok";"error")

I am trying to write a formula where the column header of the row in which a value other than 0 exists, will display for each instance (row) where a value exists in an array spanning 3 columns. So the result cell could be any of the three column headers, or a combination thereof.

I started the formula in P2 of the GL Detail-2012 tab. File attached.

Here is what I started: =INDEX($M$1:$O$1,SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIF($M$2:$O$67756,))). Not working.

I know this is an easy one but I'm unsure why I can't easily modify a formula. The key event in this formula is "+190". Every time I change the value the formula no longer works. I've copied to another cell and the formula no longer works. My question is when you have a formula like this one if you have to modify how do you do it and keep the formula working.

I've got results in row 3 - 16 386 and sometimes these results are exactly the same in some rows. What I now would need is row AB to display only one of each result and row AH to display how many percentages of the time this particular result appears.

I have a value in Cell A1. Now, I need to be able to enter a number into Cell A3 and upon hitting Enter (or clicking elsewhere), the number I just entered into Cell A3 needs to be replaced with the number I just entered multiplied by the number in Cell A1. For Example: Cell A1 contains the number 1.05. I type 2.50 into Cell A3 and upon hitting Enter Cell A3 reads 2.625.

I'm trying to do a formula that references a cell and returns a different result dependant on the number in the cell being referenced.

For example I've said if A1 has a 3 in it then put the word TEST as the result, plus if it has a 4 put the word RESULT.

What I wrote as my formula is as follows-

=IF(A1=3,"TEST")+IF(A1=4,"RESULT")

It works fine when I only use one result but goes wrong when I add two. If I change the words I want to show to numbers it comes up fine but with words it just returns a Value error.

I have a count for each site for certain cloumn headers.

But i want to collate these so that if there is a 1 in the column the it will output it with the column header. But there are 10 column headers and I would like to get a result that has all the columns with 1 in.

eg:

a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q (Organic Suites) (Inorganic Suites)

sitea 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 (O1 O3 O5 O6 O8 OS) (I1 I2)

I have a formula in a cell and when I use the formula bar it shows me the correct answer but it doesn't show me it in the worksheet. Only the formula shows up.

The same formula could be another place in my worksheet and work fine.

I have tried changing format. Copying formula from another location and changing the information to fit my needs it won't show me the result.

=K18+Sheet117!K18

K18 contains the number 54.00, and on Sheet117 cell K18 contains the number 404.00.

Cell A1 displays the formula rather than the result, which should be 458.00.

Other similar formulas I have in this workbook return a result of 0 when I know there should be a significantly higher number. Then, the same formula used to refer to different cells will return what appears to be a proper result.

I have created a visual schedule for my team using Excel (2003, SP3 if that matters). Essentially, the user puts in pre determined 1-3 character codes in individual cells, and the macros I have act like a complex Conditional Formatting to keep the formatting neat and consistent throughout the sheet. The actual values are inputted directly into the cells though (this is pertinent to my question), and are things like "A" "M" "$" and "TR"

I have a sheet for every day in a week. Since there are multiple team members on any given day, I have recently made another sheet which pulls a single Team Member's schedule Sunday through Saturday and displays their schedule for the entire week. I have used formulas (specifically VLOOKUP) to do this.

The problem that I am having though, is that the macros that I made to format the days of the week sheets, do not seem to recognize the result of the formulas in the individual Team Member's sheet, and thus do not format them as desired.

My macros are written to evaluate a cell's value via [ Range("example").value ] and will act upon it accordingly with more code. I am assuming that a [ Range("example").value ] would see a cells value as the text of the inputted formula, and not the result of that formula. Is there any way around this? or do I need to avoid the formulas all together and write in code to just copy over what I need?

(I hope this makes sense)

Why is it that when I edit some cell's formulas and press enter the result is not the changed formula but the formula itself complete with the '=' sign infront of the fuormula. The work around for me is to cut the formula and paste it into a new cell then drag the old cell over the previous one I tried to edit.

I have a formula that looks at a cell on a front sheet, and then returns the contents of that cell as the result if it meets the criteria. So for example this formula would be in Cell A1 on Sheet2 IF(SHEET1!A1,"New",Sheet1!A1,"-")

This formula is always in the same cell (different sheet) as the cell that it is looking at, down 1500 rows. Instead of having the formula named for each cell is there anyway to ask excel to 'look at this cell but on this other sheet'.

e.g IF(Sheet1!"This Cell" etc). That way no matter what cell you put the formula in it is always referencing the correct cell for the formula?
