Dynamic Named Range Linked To A Drop Down List

Feb 27, 2007

I purchased the Excel Hacks book, and when attempting to do hack #53 with a drop down list, I can not get it to work. I do exactly what the book says to do, however, my chart and my drop down list are not linked together, and when I change a name in the drop down list, the information on the chart does not change.

Dynamic Named Range Drop-down List To Exclude N/A Errors?

May 7, 2014

I have a dynamic named range which allows me to have an automatically growing drop down list in B1 as more cities are added in column A. however, my workbook will have N/A errors to begin with before cities are added.

is there a way for my drop down list in B1 not to include the N/A errors and only the cities? of course when the next N/A error turns into a city, i would like the B1 drop down list to recognise this and include it.

Add To Dynamic Range Via Drop Down List

Oct 8, 2008

I have created a spreadsheet that has many dynamic ranges, one of which is a list of vendors that my company uses, named "Company". This range is in a spreadsheet labeled "Analysis Search". From this list and on another worksheet, I have created a drop down list via data validation where the user inputs the vendor, and should the vendor not be in the dynamic range, a prompt will appear and warn the user that the name of the vendor is not already in the dynamic range and to add it once the entry is complete.

What I am looking to do is for Excel to automatically add the vendor to the dynamic range instead of having the user have to input the vendor. Also, I have used VB to have the range automatically sort alphabetically, so I would like to keep that functionality if possible. Is something like this feasible in Excel?

Dynamic Named Ranges With Linked Data

Feb 4, 2010

I am using OFFSET to make dynamic named ranges- the only problem is that I'm having trouble using it with linked data-

The Situation:

-Cells A1:H500 are linked to another sheet, with each cell containing a formula like =IF(ISBLANK('C:...[workbook.xlsx]worksheet'!A1),"",'C:...[workbook.xlsx]worksheet'!A1)

-Currently only cells A1:H100 have data, but this is dynamic and will change

-I want a named range that will only select the cells with data in them...the problem is that COUNTA counts the link formula even if the cell is "blank" (because it isn't blank).

-I hate hard-coding ranges...the solution for the named range =OFFSET($A$1,0,0,500-countblank($A$1:$A$500),8) is ugly!

Any solution to making dynamic named ranges with linked data that may or may not be "" ?

I am trying to do a dynamic drop down. The left one is working fine, where as the right one is not. (see example) I just cannot get a complete list, even though I am using the same formula.

Dynamic Named Ranges Not Appearing In F5 (GoTo) List

Mar 2, 2010

I want to start a new thread about this issue - it was previously listed on an old thread but slightly different topic: refer[url].

The problem is I have lots of Dynamic Named Ranges using formulae such as the following:
=OFFSET(RptPg!$F$9,0,0,MATCH("*",RptPg!$B$9:$B$200,-1),1)
. These named ranges are created in the Name Manager box and the code inserted in the RefersTo: box.

The ranges seem to work well and are dynamic as required. When I click on the range selector button against the RefersTo formula fo rthe range the range is correctly highlighted.

However, the range is not selectable from the F5(GoTo) command.

This then means for certain VBA operations, the range cannot be found and returns an error (Object not defined etc)

Is there anyway I can correct this or work around this - dynamic ranges are at the heart of my large workbook and fundamental to its performance>

Dynamic Named Range Sort Including Cells Outside Defined Range

Apr 3, 2008

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).....

Dynamic Named Range ..

Dec 30, 2008

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.

Dynamic Named Range Somehow Changes

Jan 4, 2009

what 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. Iíve tried to correct this by editing the formula which seems to work but changes again. Iíve 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.

Dynamic Named Range

Nov 6, 2009

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.

Copy Named Range Chosen From Drop-Down & Paste To Last Row

Feb 21, 2009

I am a trainee dermatologist. We undertake allergy patch tests. There is a long list of different patch tests which are selected based on the patients history. I have put each of the types of patch testing on a master sheet. What I would like to be able to do is to have a control button next to each set, and when clicked would add that particular set to a "new patient" worksheet tab. And with every set having its own button, more than one set could be added to a new sheet. In the new patient worksheet id like the sets added with a single row gap between them.

I had tried, and managed to get a single series to work, but then it wouldnt allow me to add the next set, saying that sheet already exists. Ideally finally, id like there to be some way, or message to make sure after printing the new patient worksheet gets deleted.
I hope that all makes sense ! Even if I had a code for a single button that added to a master sheet at the next available row +1 I think I could manipulate the code to suit.

Convert Dynamic Range To Static Named Range

Sep 13, 2007

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.

Dynamic Named Range With GETPIVOTDATA

Jun 18, 2013

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?

Dynamic Named Range Changing?

Feb 25, 2014

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]....

Offset Dynamic Named Range

Jul 23, 2014

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---
2--

Add Item To Dynamic Named Range

In 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.

Refers To A Dynamic Named Range

Jan 13, 2010

My 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)

Dynamic Named Range With Userform?

Oct 20, 2011

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)

Is A Dynamic Named Range The Answer

Jun 1, 2007

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.

Keeping A Named Range Dynamic

Sep 13, 2009

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?

Dynamic Named Range Without Offset()

Oct 15, 2009

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?

Dynamic Named Range Cause Crashes

Jan 4, 2010

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":..

Charts With Named Dynamic Range

Feb 6, 2008

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.

Dynamic Named Range Without Blanks

Jun 17, 2008

I need to populate a cell with a dropdown list via data validation. The source is a list that contains blanks both in between data and at the end of the list. Like this:

John
Peter
(BLANK)
Ann
(BLANK)
Carol
(BLANK)
(BLANK)
(BLANK)
etc.

The blank cells are actually not empty, but contains formulas (and I therefore assume I cannot use COUNTA for leaving them out).

Anyone knows how to create a source list for the data validation dropdown list that leaves out any blanks (containing formulas) in the middle and the end of the range?
