Drag/Fill Formula & Skip Some Row References

Apr 28, 2008

I have the following formulae in seperate cells were A1, A2 and A3 are the cells

A1 =MAX(Data!C2:C3)
A2 =MAX(Data!C4:C5)
A3 =MAX(Data!C6:C7)

I would like to drag the cells so that automatically the cells below A3 are updated as follows

A4 =MAX(Data!C8:C9)
A5 =MAX(Data!C10:C11)
etc up to 600 rows

Unfortunately it is not being updated in that order. Do you have any suggestions how it can be done.

Making Spacebar Follow A Keystroke Pattern????? Add-in???

Dec 7, 2006

I am using a bar code gun to enter numbers. There are two bar codes on each item that I am scanning requiring two columns for each item. Right now I squeeze the trigger and the number pops up into the currently active cell. Then I use the arrow key to move over one cell and squeeze the trigger for the next number. Then Down arrow following with a left arrow to move the highlighted cell down one line back to the first column. Kind of inefficient because although repetitive there is room for errors on my part.

Is there a way to make it that every time I press the space bar or some other key that excel highlights a cell following my desired pattern? At least for the time that I am using the bar code gun? Making it so pressing the space bar would advance the selected cell over, then down and left, then over, then down and left, alternating with each press following that pattern ad infinitum. I have to scan hundreds of these babies.

Would this be difficult? Im not the programming type. Any help would be greatly appreciated. At least I no longer have to manually type each number in. That was a real bummer.

Fill Handle Pattern (not Finding My Pattern)

Jan 31, 2007

Pre-requisite: I would consider myself to be very poor with excel, based on what I've read on this forum and found on my web-searches. I have a worksheet that has a list of data on the left going vertically, then a summary of this data going horizontally across the top. It is not arranged in such a way that transposing the data will do what I want. I am pulling the 5th word out of the title of each block of the vertical data and need to show this word on the horizontal section.

When I use this formula to pull the 5th word: =MID(MID(MID(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4),1,256), FIND("^",SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4)),256),2,FIND(" ",MID(MID(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4),1,256),FIND("^",SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4)),256))-2)

I need to increase A2 to A30, then A58 (up by 28 every time) in every instance in that formula. The fill handle increases the values by 1, instead of 28 (even if I do 3 or 4 instances manually) How do I do this? I've run into this problem in other scenarios, and there HAS to be a way to get around it.

Excel 2010 :: Making Portions Of Drag Down Formula Skip Cells

Feb 11, 2014

I have set up a formula to sum data from specific columns in multiple sheets in the same file. The simple formula had worked perfectly until I needed the data from the last sheet. In all of the other sheets the data that I need to pull is all in consecutive rows but in the last sheet the data that I need pulled and added is in every 4th row. The sheet looks like this:

All of the columns I've filled in work fine. The ones blank are the ones I am running into issues with. When I drag down the formulas excel pulls the next consecutive rows, which is perfect for the first four sheets I am summing, but for the fifth sheet (I'll ref the Test1 column) I need it to pull 'Wayne 2014'!C6 and then 'Wayne 2014'!C10 in the next row and so forth.

Date
All Test
Test1
Test2
Test3
Test4
$ Amt.

Jan.16
=SUM(C2+D2+E2+F2)

[Code] ........

The first four sheets look like this, which is why they work fine:

Date
All Test
Test1
Test2
Test3
$ Amt.

Jan. 16
=SUM(C2:E2)

[Code] ........

The fifth sheet looks like this: I only want the formulas from the first sheet to pull the data from the dated rows in this sheet.

Date
All Test
Test1
Test2
Test3
$ Amt.

Jan. 16
=SUM(C2:E2)
=SUM(C3:C5)

[Code] ......

Is there any way in Excel 2010 to get it do what I want? (I am not sure how that one cell became outlined and I do not know how to fix it.)

Creating Patterns For Auto Fill To Follow?

Aug 20, 2014

I'm trying to create an auto fill pattern to match B4-M4 then repeat with B5-M5 and continue to 350.

So for example, I'd like to manually enter "B4,C4,D4,E4,F4,G4,H4,I4,J4,K4,L4,M4,B5,C5,D5,E5,F5,G5,H5,I5,J5,K5,L5,M5" into column A and drag the auto fill box down until I've repeated the pattern to match all the way to M350.

Is this possible? I tried just entering the pattern as I've posted and dragging the auto fill down, but it doesn't fill the numbers properly and ends up with a strange pattern.

Specific Pattern - Fill Won't Recognize It

Aug 1, 2014

I am comparing two years' data, one on top of the other (Rows 1 and 2). For each cell in each row, I am referencing a cell from a different tab. This needs to be done with about 290 data items, so 580 rows.

When I attempt to copy the two rows down, it doesn't go in the correct order (skips a cell reference number). It looks like this:

Excel Forum Q.xlsx

It would save me a lot of time considering each of the 580 rows has about 30 different column with each cell referencing various things.

Extract A Fill Pattern From A Cell Comments Field

Jun 21, 2008

I have a file where comments are used for some cells. The user does not insert any text into these comments fields, but uses the comments feature to display pictures.

A picture is used for the fill pattern of the cell (inserted through fill effects) and that picture is what is displayed when someone moves the mouse over the cell.

The "fill pattern picture" becomes part of the excel file and my question is how can I extract this picture and use it somewhere else.

Disabling The Control Drag And Fill Function

Mar 29, 2007

the function I'm referring to is when you have a value in a cell and you hover your mouse cursor over the edge and get the black cross with arrows on all corners. Once you drag the cell into another location, it copies the the data into the other cell.

I need a way to stop this from happening, because this causes reference errors on other sheets when users do this by accident. However, I still need to allow the user to be able to type in that cell, use the autofill option, and the Ctrl+C option. Is there a way to program a macro that can be put in the sheets to do this for specified cells or ranges?

Disable & Re-Enable Fill Handle & Drag-and-Drop

Jun 19, 2008

I've created a macro to disable cut-copy-paste and drag-and-drop (below), but when the user exits Excel, the drag-and-drop option remains turned off.

The user has to click on the Office button, go to Excel Options, Advanced tab, and re-enable the fill handle manually. How can I have my macro do this automatically when the workbook is closed?

Follow Hyperlink, Then Do Something Else

I have hyperlinks set up in a spreadsheet. I want something to happen once I click the hyperlink, like go to another cell, color the cell, put a value in it. Whatever. I just can't figure out how to do anything like that. Is there VBA that could determine if the active cell hyperlink has been clicked? Like by checking the text color maybe or something like that? Let's say for simplicity sake, I just want to put a 1 in the cell next to the cell with the hyperlink I just clicked.

Follow Up To Using COUNT, But Now With Interupted Cells

Jan 12, 2009

A1/A2 is Monday, A3/A4 is Tuesday, A5/A6 is Wednesday, A7/A8 is Thursday, A9/A10 is Friday, A11/A12 is Saturday, A13/A14 is Sunday. A15/A16 os Totals. Each of the two cells are merged to hold the heading.
B1 is Plan, B2 is Actual, B3 is Plan, B4 is Actual, B5 is Plan, B6 is actual and so on.

Here is the problem:
The formula suggested was =SUM(A2:G2)/COUNT(A2:G2) which was fine when I only had the one column for "Plan", but now I have added a second column for "Actual" next to each "Plan" but I still need a formula that will add every second cell and average it out allowing for the odd time that one of the cells could contain text indicating a holiday and therefor be one less day with data and require to be divided by 6 instead of 7 for example to get the average.
