I am looking for a way to delete all the range names in a worksheet, not the whole workbook. I have found several procedures that will delete all the names in an activeworkbook. For some reason it takes too long to run. Does anyone know how to handle a single sheet in VBA?
I have 50 sheets (1 sheet per staff member) that will be linked to a Master Sheet that compiles the data. The staff members are based in 5 teams of 10. The names of the sheets are based on the person's initials plus the words Progress Day,
All formulas in the master sheet are based around linking to 10 sheets so I can view the performance of each team. My problem is that the composition of each team changes quite often and so the links have to be manually updated for each team. Is there any way, for example, of compiling a table of team initials like the one below:
AT EF FY DE CB RO PR TA NE SK HS
that could easily be edited so that the formulae containing the sheet names relate to the table rather than static sheet names?
Eg., If AT left the above team and was replaced by PG then I would update the list above and the current formula
='C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersShared DesktopProgress Day Daisychain[AT Progress Day.xls]Sheet1'!D32+'[EF Progress Day.xls]Sheet1'!D32
would update to:
='C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersShared DesktopProgress Day Daisychain[PG Progress Day.xls]Sheet1'!D32+'[EF Progress Day.xls]Sheet1'!D32
I've been referencing sheets in my code directly with things like
however in recreating a new workbook (to reduce bloat), the sheet-numbering has changed... to avoid having to mess around adjusting things again, I was wondering if it's possible to do some sort of indirection... something similar to
I inhereted a spreadsheet where the designer used range names for all formulas. i hate range names. is there any way i can delete all range names and have all formulas go back to showing cell references instead of range names? When i just go through and delete the range names, i get formula errors.
I have written VBA code which is operated every month. This code deletes several range names in a target spreadsheet, performs other actions - including extracting certain areas to different spreadsheets and then closes the spreadsheet without saving.
The range names in the target spreadsheet are required for ongoing use, so can not be deleted permanently.
Is there any code that deletes all range names in one go? At present my code includes the results of recording a macro wherein I delete each range name in turn - creating script over 100 lines long.
the active sheet contains a number of defined named ranges. i would like to delete range names beginning with "Sales", yet the number of defined ranges changed from sheet to sheet = for example, Sheet1 may have 3 defined ranges (Sales1, Sales2, Sales 3), Sheet 2 may have 1 (Sales 1). Is it possible to included a wildcard search in the following code?
Sub DeleteRangeNames() Dim RangeName As Name For Each RangeName In Names ActiveSheet.Names(RangeName.Name).Delete Next RangeName End Sub
I have a namd sheet for everyday of the year in a workbook, so jan1 jan2 jan3 etc. I have a stats page which brings together certain pertinent data from those pages, so a formula on the stats page might look like this =sum('jan1'!$m$25:$m$900). What I would like to do is to name each day - jan1 jan2 etc as a named range perhaps date1 date2 etc so that the above formula would then look like =sum(date1!$m$25:$m$900).
I've got a workbook that increments in sheets for each new week. I have a cell showing the current week number for that sheet ( lets say cell C1) and any formulas that need to reference data from the previous sheet do in 'indirect' function which basically looks at the current week number ( lets say week 20)in cell C1 and minus's 1 to navigate to the previous week (week 19).
I was wondering if there was a way to reference the previous sheet purely by the order they're in.
So say i have 5 sheets named "1,4,5,8,9" and these represent week numbers so the sheet named '8' in cell C1 would have '8' standanding for the week number but cells that wanted to reference the previous sheet couldn't do the 'indirect' C1-1 as there is no 'week 7'.
The weeks used could vary alot so a formula to reference the directly previous sheet is needed.
I know I've asked before but I can neither find my previous question or the answer. So, once again.... is it possible to refer to a named range in a CSE array formula? I know how I would type a formula that way -- but I would be happy to see an example.
Most importantly, will it always work? Or are there pitfalls and dangers?
I've got a problem referring to a named range in another worksheet.
Private Sub test() Dim var_StartWeek As String ' 0740 This is the value I make a lookup for Dim var StartWeekNr As Integer ' 40 and get this as a result
'*** Here is the named range in another worksheet (It doesn't work) Set rng = ActiveWorkbook.Names("WeekData2").RefersToRange var_StartWeekNr = WorksheetFunction.HLookup(var_StartWeek, Range("rng.Value"), 4) ' I'm doing something wrong here...
'*** If I have the named range in the same worksheeet it works fine 'var_StartWeekNr = WorksheetFunction.HLookup(var_StartWeek, ActiveSheet.Range("WeekData"), 4)
I put all my named ranges in a seperate worksheet in the workbook.
On a different sheet I have all my data with references to the named ranges. But what it gives me is the cell information from the sheet on which the named range is located and not on the worksheet where I actually need the calculations to be done.
How can I make the named range refer to the cells in the worksheet in which it sits?
Worksheet 1 --------------- 1 2 3 4
Worksheet 2 -------------- I name the function Red apples RedApples =CONCATENATE($A1&"Red Apples")
Question #1 How do I make the name reference in worksheet 2 refer to the cells located in the worksheet in which i use it. In other words, when I use RedApples in Worksheet 3, it gives me what is sitting in A1 in worksheet 2 instead of in A1 on Worksheet 1.
Question #2 How do I make the name reference in Worksheet 3 keep stepping down along Column A in Worksheet 1?
I have filtered a list, defined a range of the visible cells. Now I want to loop thru the range and process each cell. In the process I have to refer to the next visible cell. How can I achive this? both .Offset and .Item result in the next none-visible cell.
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 am an inventory specialist for a dish network company and as such I track inventory in and out of technicians vans, both serialized and not. I've done a great deal of work updating a broken excel sheet they use so that it functions again but I didn't build it. I've learned a lot but I'm only self taught with Excel and had never even heard of VBA code until I dived into this project. It's a huge puzzle and is now my "baby".
Anyway, basically I have one sheet that has a list of all the items I need to keep track of. One section of this Sheet1 I've designed to have cells with dependent drop down lists that are Named Ranges on Sheet2. The tech can choose item A B or C in the first dropdown box and then the next cell shows only the serial numbers from the named range on Sheet2 of A B or C. (Was that english?)
Since the receiver comes out of the techs van once its used I want to figure out a way to delete the serial number that the tech has chosen without deleting the row or cell, just the value in it so that it can then have another serial number typed in. How can I do that?
Also, since I'm here, my 2nd drop down list seems to always start scrolled down and I have to scroll up to see my serial numbers. Why is that? The receiver list starts at the top but the dependent one doesn't...
I am looking for some code to scan my sheet names and delete all the sheets that don't have names corresponding to the values within a cell range contained on another sheet in the workbook. For example, if any sheet name, excluding a few reserved sheets, doesn't equal one of the values contained in cells A2:A23 on sheet "XYZ" then delete it.
The best solution I could come up with using my experience was to loop through each sheet and compare the name to each cell in the named range, but if it's possible to somehow declare the named range so that each sheet only has to compare to it that would be ideal;
