# Dynamic Named Range Based On Last Date In Column

Mar 9, 2008I want to define a dynamic named range based on the last date in a range (AE4 down). Unfortunately there are gaps in this range where no date is in a cell.

I have a column of data that keeps getting new information in it. what i need is a named range that i can use for a chart, first point in the named range will be the first value in the column, second point will be avg. of point 1 and 2, then 3rd point will be avg. of 1,2,3 etc.

I want to do the same as Range(Cells(5,2)) in VBA EXCEPT in a Formula

because I want to use named ranges for the Row & column entries. (And I don't want to have to run a macro every time a change is made. The spreadsheet is huge enough already. It's slow on my machine & I have the biggets baddest PC in the company!)

Using Formulas only, (not VBA) I would like to create a Dynamic Named Range, LastUsedRow, which is the ROW NUMBER of the Last Used Cell in Column C

(it would = 470)

Also I have an existing Named Range HeaderRowNum (it = 16)

Currently I have a LOT of formulas like:

=SUMPRODUCT(($E17:$E470)*(--(CO17:CO470>0)))

problem is any new data must be added between Rows 17 & 470

So I would like to create dynamic new forumlas to read like:

SUMPRODUCT( (Cells(HeaderRowNum+1,5) : (LastUsed Row,5)) * (--(Cells(HeaderRowNum+1,93) : (LastUsed Row,93))>0) )...............

I am trying to calculate some averages. What I have is 3 columns of data in A, B, C, also the "tasks" in A are in named ranges ex: "Award Contract" is a named range - "Task_Award" and "Confirm Updates" is a named range - "Task_Updates". I've attached a sample excel sheet.

I'd like to be able to create a macro to evaluate column A, and for every row in range "Task_Award", give me the average of the corresponding cells in column C and put it in the same range of cells in column B , then, for every row in "Task_Confirm" then give me the average of the same range of cells in column C and place the result in the same range of cells in column B. This is my very first post so I hope I am doing this correctly. I have 77 of these task ranges to evaluate and it will take a long time to do it manually. I'm thinking of a loop function.

I have data in a spreadsheet similar to the below.

[Code] ....

What I need to do is created a named dynamic range based on the current month which will contain all rows/columns within that range. Ideally I need it to create the range for the current month so I can then use this as the data source for a pivot table.

I believe it is something to do with index and match functions?

I would like to name a range based on a row number and a column number. I have found the row and column number using this code, but I can't seem to get the rest right.

Sub LastRowCol()

Dim intLastRow As Integer

Dim intLastCol As Integer

Dim ws As Worksheet

For Each ws In Worksheets

intLastRow = ws.Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row

intLastCol = ws.Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Column

I have a worksheet that has hourly data. So Column C of this worksheet looks like

1

1

1

1

2

2

2

3

3

3

3

3

3

What I want to do is, given an hour h, automatically create a named range that contains all the rows such that the value of Column C is equal to h.

I have a long (~42,000) list of dates and times (some including zeros). I would like to name these ranges and use a formula to find the last entry in each column. I know the lists will never go over 45,000.

The data is in this format:

1/31/14

23:58:00

1/30/14

[Code]....

The data will not always be consecutive, so I imagine the criteria would be something like (if there were such a thing) "ISDATE" or something of the sort.

How would I write a formula to dynamically calculate the row number of the last date or time in the column? (In this case, it would be 6.)

I want to refer to columns by column order (i.e. A=1, B=2, etc.)

I want to sum a range for dynamic columns and fixed widths (i.e. B2:B5 or F2:F5, etc).

i have C_N as variant and i am trying to write the formula but desperately getting syntax error.

Code:

Range("M5") = WorksheetFunction.Sum(Range(C_N& "2" : C_N&"5")))

i tried before to make another easier formula like

Code:

=Range("N5:N" & LastRow)

and it worked.

Im sorting a dynamic range as mentioned in this Sorting a Named Range. My range is called drWarningTypes and is defined as:

=OFFSET(DataSource!$A$2,0,0, COUNTA(DataSource!$A:$A)-1,1)

When there is only one cell in the range, then running the following sort function includes A1 also in the search (and also adjoining columns).....

I need to create a dynamic named range called "DIVLOC," that corresponds to a sheet called Divloc_List in the workbook. Then, I need to take this range and perform a vlookup against it. I tried to create the range in the sheet itself (it wasn't dynamic), and then used that in the vlookup in the vba code, but I got error 2402 (I think). I'm not sure how to define the dynamic range in vba code, and then use the range in the vlookup.

View 9 Replies View Relatedwhat would cause the formula for a dynamic named range to keep changing on its own? I enter the following formula:

OFFSET('Raw Data'!$D$2,0,0,COUNTA('Raw Data'!D:D),1)

Which I save and somehow gets changed to the following formula:

OFFSET('Raw Data'!$D$2,0,0,COUNTA('Raw Data'!XFD:XFD),1)

This is happening to several named ranges I created. I’ve tried to correct this by editing the formula which seems to work but changes again. I’ve also deleted the named range and recreated it with the same change process taking place.

In case it matters the named ranges are being created on a table imported into Excel via MS Query.

I am trying to create a dynamic named range to select a list of text entries from a number of different columns that I am using for Data Validation. The columns have entries of variable length, none more than 30. What I am seeking to achieve is that having selected a heading in cell C3 the available list in DV dropdowns elsewhere are governed by the contents of C3.

I have created a defined name, StartPos that uses the contents of C3 to evaluate to the cell reference (e,g $H$4) of the topmost cell in the relevant column. However when I try to use it in the usual formula

=OFFSET($A$1,0,0,COUNTA($A:$A),1) formula I try

=OFFSET(StartPos,0,0,COUNTA(StartPos:[ ],1)

I get stuck at what to put in the brackets. Ideally I would like to use the COUNTA to go down to the last entry in the column. However, even when I try to give the range a height of 30 rows:

=OFFSET(StartPos,0,0,30,1) I still get an error.

My searches have not produced anything that I could apply to this situation.

I'm trying to write VBA that would:

1. Search a Workbook for Dynamic Ranges.

2. When a Dynamic Range is found the code would:

A. Determine the current coordinates for the range.

B. Change the "Refers To" value From "=OFFSET...." To "=Worksheet_Name $Column$Row:$Column$Row"

3. Save Changes.

4. Close File.

My apologies but I have very little experience in writing VBA. I understand about variables, arguments, and IF/THEN but just enough to use functions within Excel.

I want to create a charts on a pivot table, but I don't like the way Pivot charts function and the limitations they have.

So I want to create a normal charts that is dynamic and based on a pivot table.

In order to do so, I want to create dynamic named ranged for the data in the pivot table to use for the data series for the chart.

I can reference the week numbers (headers in the pivot table) for one data series and get the data by this formula:

=OFFSET(Weekly!$C$15,0,0,1,COUNTA(Weekly!$14:$14)-1)

$C$15 is the first cell that holds the data for the series.

Row 14 holds the week numbers (headers in the pviot)

However, I want to make that formula even more dynamic by having it reflect the changes done to the pivot table who's cells it references to.

So how do I do this using the GETPIVOTDATA function? (or some other function that makes it dynamic and reflect changes done to the pivot table and accounts for the row numbers with the data can change)

If I generate the GETPIVOTDATA formula and try to substistute the fixed cell reference for $c$15 with it, the OFFSET formula for the dynamic range gives an error.

And how can I grab the column headers (week number) dynamically?

I am doing an Advanced Filter, and I am using a named range in my VBA code that decides the Criteria range.

The dynamic named range is called 'Criteria' and this is the code:

VB:

=OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$2,0,0,Sheet1!$BZ$23,41)

However, when I run the VBA code, although it works perfectly, afterwards the named range has changed to:

VB:

=Sheet1!$A$2:$AO$3

I just want this to remain unchanged, as it works great. This is my VBA code:

VB:

'Filter and send data to new sheet

Sheets("Sheet2").Select

Cells.Select

[Code]....

I know how to create a dynamic named range so that no blanks appear in my data validation list but have only ever done this for a list in a column, i.e...

-----A-----

1--Apple

2--Orange

3--Pear

4--Bannana

5--

6--

A1:A6 would be named Fruit, then name manager, edit: =OFFSET($A$1,0,0,COUNT($A1:$A6),1)

The Data Validation list then shows Apple, Orange, Pear, Bannana. And if I add Peach into A5 later, that then appears in the list.

What I need though is to edit this as if the named range 'Fruit' covers cells A1:F1.

------A---------B-------C--------D-----------E-----------F

1--Apple---Orange---Pear---Bannana---

create a dynamic named range with dates.

I need an dynamic named range for column B(Project) with a date criteria.

so for example: I need a range with all records from Colomn B(Project) from year 2013.

I want to use this range to filter all unique projects by year.

I have already a filter/formula to collect a unique list of all projects.

I have a named range in a column for January data (non-contiguous cells). Every month I insert new data in the column to the right. Is there a way to have a dynamic range that grabs the same exact cells but in the new column but unselects the previous month data? Spreadsheet attached.

View 1 Replies View RelatedIn the attached workbook, I have identical sets of data in column A separated by an blank cell. I need a macro for the user form that i need to build. The code needs to find the end of each named range, (Range1,Range2 and Range3), to insert blank row at the end of each range and to copy the value of the textbox from the user form in each row so to keep the sets of data identical.

View 9 Replies View RelatedMy file has a code that refers to a dynamic named range. When I run the macro that range gets corrupted and I cannot figure it out why. before the macro the named range refers to:

=OFFSET(Manager!$A$1,0,0,MATCH("*",Manager!$A:$A,-1),3)

and right after I run the macro it turns to:

=OFFSET(Manager!#REF!,0,0,MATCH("*",Manager!$A:$A,-1),3)

I have dynamic named range that lists by columns. I can use this with data validation pull down on my worksheet and all is fine. But when I use this named range in the RowSource of a combo box in a userform, I only get the first column of data, or basically, the data in B1, but not C1, D1, ect. Here is the formula for the named range.

=OFFSET(INFO!$B$1,0,0,1,COUNTA(INFO!$1:$1)-1)

How can I retrieve the values from a dynamic named range with VBA?

Let's say we have created a dynamic list with the OFFSET function, how can I get the values of that dynamic range?

I have a sheet containing three drop down boxes which gives me a count of data in a table matching the criteria. (Between 2 dates and equals a depot name).

I am trying to create a chart to only show this data, but I don't want to do it using a pivot table as the end user has no understanding of them and just wants to fill in drop down boxes.

I am beginning to think that using a Dynamic Named Range might be the answer. I believe I am able to achieve what I want with this process but I am not entirely sure how to do it.

In the following line of code in my subroutine I name this range

which runs from A2:J2, the problem is later in the routine I delete certain unwanted columns which then shrinks this range. I always want it to be 10 colums wide. How do I make it dynamic with vba?

ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="TranslateShow", RefersTo:=Worksheets("TemplateTest").Range("$A$2:$J$2")

Can I also substitute the workbook actual name for ActiveWorkbook?

When I make a dynamic named range, I typically do something like:

=offset($A$1,,,counta(A:A),counta(1:1))

I remember awhile ago I saw (within some of the comments on Jon Peltier's site, I believe) a way to make a dynamic named range without using offset. Does anyone know how to do it?

Anyone run across this.....Over the past 1-2 years...I have setup a number of complex excel workbooks, that automate a lot of reporting for my employees. Suddenly, over the past couple months, I am finding that if I try to go back and edit many of my named ranges (created a while ago) that were created dynamically: "=OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$4,0,0,COUNTA(Sheet1!$A$4:$A$65000),4)"...excel crashes. I can't figure out why.

All I have to do is simply CLICK in the "Refers to:" field of the "Define Name" window (for the dynamically named range)....and I get "Microsoft Office Excel has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

If I drill down on "What is in the report", I see this "Error signature":..

How can I DISABLE dynamic named ranges ACROSS worksheets? Is there an option or code?

View 3 Replies View RelatedI am using follwoing piece of code for offset function. For Some reason it is not working.

Reference = Cells(TableRowNumber, TableColumnNumber).Address

Col = Application.WorksheetFunction. CountA(rngF.Columns(TableRowNumber, TableColumnNumber).EntireColumn)

ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:=TableName, RefersToR1C1:= _

"=OFFSET(Reference,0,0,Col-3,1)"

Col value is also being calculated to zero. TableRowNumber and TableColumnNumber are the variables which store the starting location of the column.

I have a Defined Dynamic Name which is used to select my data. How do I call that when I create a chart in excel within the data source, so that the data source always refers to this dynamic range.

I have data A B C D E

1 2 3 4 5

9 4 5 6 7

this is so the series names will be the row and for each series the rows represent the data within each of the columns. I have a dynamic range that always selects the whole range called chartdata. How do I put that in the data source when it asks me in Excel 2007 as there is no wizard for seprate x and y ranges in this version.
