Detecting Formulas Vs. Constants

Oct 1, 2006

In my company we have many spreadsheets with sections that contain formulas, which may be overwritten with "hard coding", manually entered constants, in certain situations.

Is there a way I can detect the differences between the two types of cells? I would like to setup conditional formatting that would highlight constants in a table that would generally only contains formulas.

Named Range / Constants In Formulas?

Apr 11, 2014

I have the following formula.

=SUMIFS('Register Sales'!$E$51:$C$2500,'Register Sales'!$C$51:,A2,'Register Sales'!$L$51:$L$2500,D2)

The range changes each month so I want to use a named cell "LastRow" where I can change the number to replace the 2500. How do I use the range name in my formula without giving me a #value# error?

Flag Cells With Constants In Formulas

Feb 6, 2008

I'm dealing with a lot of spreadsheets put together by people who are not that familiar with Excel. Because of this, there are many instances where the formulas created include constants. For example: = A1 * B1 + 200. I want to create a VBA routine that will cycle through the cells I selected and "flag" those cells that have a constant in the formula.

Conditional Formatting To Highlight Cells With Formulas (versus Constants)

Nov 24, 2010

Is it possible to use conditional formatting to highlight cells that use formulas, as opposed to having constants?

I have a sheet that uses formulas to provide a default value, but you can type in a number if you want to replace the default. I want to be able to easily identify which ones use the default formula.

If I use functions like FIND, they look at the result of a formula, and not the formula itself.

I know I can write a UDF that will figure it out but I was wondering if there is some built-in way.

Format Formulas, Constants, Numbers & Text Cells Differently

May 8, 2008

I am attempting to write a VBA function that will add textual formatting to each cell that has content. I am just learning VBA; so far, as an example I have

Sub NewSub()
i = 1
j = 1
Cells(i, j) = "'" & Range(i.j).Value & "',"
i = i + 1
Loop Until i = 40
End Sub

but, as I'm sure you'll notice, it does not work. In essence I want to wrap quotes and follow with a comma each cell that contains any content. The actual content test I haven't gotten to yet.

Constants As Arrays In Vba?

Apr 16, 2009

Can you declare a const as an array in VBA? For example, let's say I wanted to define an array of ORDINALS:

Const ORDINALS(0 to 9) = ("0th","1st","2nd","3rd","4th","5th","6th","7th","8th","9th")

Using Constants In Same Module

Oct 15, 2009

I declared a constant like so:

Public Const iFirstRow As Integer = 6

I figured that any time I used this, at least in the same module, its value would be 6, but it was 0.

I changed it to ModuleName.iFirstRow, which seemed to set it straight.

Is this just how it is, or am I doing something wrong that is preventing me from using it without the module name?

Constants Are ($) Variables Are?

Apr 14, 2007

While $ are constants for cells what is the symbol for variables? I guess when I dragged a formula down rows a certain number did not increase so I had to manually up each one as I went down the rows.

Sum Formula With Constants

Jun 23, 2007

I have a Excel budget spreadsheet. I need a running formula I can copy and paste to other month cells.


=SUM(B11+B4+C11-D11) Interest(B4), interest1(C11) and pmt(D11) are constants. The formula I am using works but it won't copy and paste.

Compare Value Of X Cells To Constants

Apr 3, 2008

I need the SUM function. I know how to use SUM and in one of my workbooks it is used quite a few times, but for two columns it will not add the columns up. In the Q column I have this formula throughout the cells: {=IF(AND($H6="DM",$J6=1),"$100.00","")} and the other column is just about the same (just has different H6 value). Then I have a cell with the formula {=SUM(Q6:Q900)} and the end result is $ -. This formula is used for other columns and it works just fine. I have checked the formatting in all the cells and have changed them to General, Number, Currency, and Accounting. None of those working. I have also checked the Calculation Tab in Tools>Options... and it is set to automatic.

Auto Creation Of Variables / Constants

Mar 25, 2007

I am trying to create a set of global variables (or actually constants) that can be used in my program based on two columns found in a spreadsheet. The first column in the spreadsheet contains the name of the variable, and the second column contains its value.

VarName VarValue
Var1 abc
var2 def
var3 ghi

When the program (which is an Add-in) is called by the user, the very first thing that I would like the program to do is to create each variable from the first column and assign the string value from the second column to this variable (or constant).

Detecting Top Of Page

Feb 5, 2009

Is there a way of detecting, when printing, that a cell is at the top of the page?

I am not talking about the automatic "Rows to repeat at top" option on Page Setup; I have programmatically suppressed repeating information in Column A but I want to repeat that information if the column is fed to a new page.

Detecting The Last Column

Mar 15, 2007

I've written a macro to copy data from a series of columns on one sheet and past it on another sheet in a specific way. However, what I really want to do, is write the macro so it automatically detects what the last column is, either by defining a range consisting of the last column, or by writing "Last Column" in one of the cells of the column, and having the macro detect it.

Dim i As Variant
For i = 5 To 56
' What I want to do is have the second number be the last column, instead of 56.
Selection. AutoFilter Field:=i, Criteria1:=">0", Operator:=xlAnd
Sheets(" Consolidate").Select
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 4).Range("A1").Select

Using Array Constants In User-defined In Vba Function

Oct 1, 2009

I have a function in VBA of the type. Function MyFunc(Indx As Integer, k As Long, Rho As Range, A As Range) As Variant .... End Function

which is called as a user-defined function from within the Excel worksheet. When called with the last two arguments being a range (i.e. Result = MyFunc(1,98,A1:A2, B1:B2)) it works fine. However, when I try to directly use an array constant instead of a range (i.e. Result = MyFunc(1,98,{10,11}, {20,30}), it returns a #VALUE error.

I thought I could fix it by redefining the last two arguments as arrays of type double, but this didn't work either (i.e. Function MyFunc(Indx As Integer, k As Long, Rho() As Double, A() As Double) As Variant .... End Function ).

Change Numeric Constants In Column To Zeros

Oct 13, 2009

I have the following code

Call LastCell_Example(LastCell)
lastrow = Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).row
Set Datarange = ActiveSheet.Range("B1:" & LastCell)
' Set to 0 all cells that contain constants, but ONLY those that are numeric
Datarange.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants, xlNumbers) = 0

lastcell_example contains

Dim rng As Range

' Use all cells on the sheet
Set rng = Sheets("Courtage").Cells

' Find the last cell
LastCell = Last(3, rng)

' Select from A1 till the last cell in Rng
With rng.Parent
.Range("A1", LastCell).Select
End With

When I run the code above, I don't understand the fact that the first rows in the sheet AFTER "Courtage" are also being changed to zero.

Obviously, I'm not limiting my datarange correctly, but could someone explain what I need to do to limit the changed data to ONLY the current sheet.

Array Constant Composed Of Named Constants

Jun 20, 2008

I try to understand what the syntax is to create and use an array named constant which would be composed of other constant.

Example :
Constant called AvgZone1 which is =AVERAGE(zone1)
Constant called AvgZone2 which is =AVERAGE(zone2)

and then create a named array constant based on the names : =AvgZone1,AvgZone2
is not working. You cannot for example do a SUM().

VBA Not Detecting Email Address?

Jun 20, 2014

It worked well at the time and continues to work well.

The problem I have is that I've copied it for use in a new workbook and for some reason it's not picking up email addresses and storing them in the string "stemails", so that when the email is created there are no addressees. Column BA does have email addresses in it however.

VBA Detecting Color Change

Feb 10, 2012

Using Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range) I can execute code when values in the cell change, but it can't check if the foreground or background color changes. What event can detect this? If no event can, is there any way at all?

Found this, I will look into this loop: Capturing cell color change in VBA

Detecting Non Contiguous Row Selections

Dec 22, 2008

I execute custom Insert and Delete macros whenever when the user has selected a single contiguous range of rows to insert or delete.

But I don't know how to detect if the user has selected multiple, non-contiguous rows. Is there a way to detect this situation, and if so, is there a way to "loop" through the individual selections?

Detecting What Object Was Clicked

Jul 22, 2006

I've been working on a visualizer for large data sets and I'm trying to create a flexible interface. What I am trying to do is populate a sheet with objects(rectangles, triangles, etc.) and linking them all to the same macro. The macro would detect what had clicked it and read the alternative text which would hold the command procedure for that object. I've seen how people detect cursor position but I have not come across anything to detect the object that was clicked. The code I've found (in another post) is as follows:

Declare Function GetCursorPos Lib "user32" (lpPoint As POINTAPI) As Long
x As Long
y As Long
End Type

Sub CurosrXY_Pixels()

Dim lngStatus As Long
Dim typWhere As POINTAPI

lngStatus = GetCursorPos(typWhere)
MsgBox "x: " & typWhere.x & Chr(13) & "y: " & typWhere.y, vbInformation, "Pixels"
End Sub

This works but I can't figure out how to detect the object it clicked. I was hoping to use

ClickedObject = ActiveWindow.rangefrompoint(typeWhere.x, typeWhere.y)
Command = ClickedObject.AlternativeText

but all I get is errors.

Sensing/Detecting Format Changes

Aug 16, 2006

I need to code a procedure which detects when a cell has changed color (I cannot assume where the cell is).

I thought I might be able to use the worksheet_change procedure, but this only 'reacts' when the cell contents change. Can anyone point me in the direction of the right procedure to implement.

Detecting When A Worksheet Is Deleted

Mar 20, 2007

I am working on a workbook in which you can click a button on an index page to create a new sheet in the workbook with the name "meeting" and the number meeting that it is. The new sheet is then added to the index page. I am looking for a way to detect when a sheet is deleted so I can update my index page accordingly. I need to be able to know when a meeting is deleted so I can rename all meetings after that meeting and then update my index.
