Dynamic Range 2003: Run Calculations On This Range
Nov 5, 2009
I have a range of data that will grow as the days of the month pass but I need to run calculations on this range. The data is 13 columns wide but the number of rows will increase daily. I remember using a formula in the Define Range that would automatically take into account new additions using the OFFSET function but cannot for the life of me think how exactly to do it.
Each of my data sets spans roughly 75 columns by 250 rows at present, but this could expand. The first 7 rows contain metadata. Columns 2-25 or so contain the raw data, from which everything to the right is calculated. The data sets have most columns in common, but not necessarily all.
In order to tease out the most meaningful information from my data, I frequently sort all or part of it based on varying criteria. When I find a useful sorting criterion, I create a new column with a header that describes the criterion and populate it with a formula that returns a 1 if the condition of interest is met for that row, or a 0 if it is not. For example, if I am doing this in column AA, I might enter
and copy it down to the end of the data. The resulting vector of 1s and 0s quickly re-identify data that meets that criterion even after subsequent resorting. It also makes locating data that meets multiple sorting criteria extremely simple. Essentially, I create a truth table.
Cell $AA$4 in the above example contains a "comparator" value I might wish to change at some point, which would change the subset of data the condition selects for.
Here's the first hard part:
For each data set, I need the ability to generate meaningful plots that includes separate series based on the criteria I have described. However, I also need to retain the ability to resort the data or change the comparator value without disrupting these plots. In other words, the plots must NOT change when the order of the data is changed, but MUST change to display the appropriate data when the comparator changes.
Here's the 2nd hard part:
Once I have this working for one data set, I need to be able to port it to other data sets (which are contained in other workbooks), so that I can compare equivalent plots from each. I also need to minimize the number of manual steps involved in doing so, to avoid human errors and excessive time consumption.
The only other possible complication I can think of at the moment is that, to this point, I have been inserting blank rows to isolate subsets that I do not wish to perform further sorting on from each other.
Right now I am angling toward VBA code that loops through the entire data set to generate base dynamic ranges using the column header row (row 1) as the names, and the entire column of data for the rangeloops through the truth table columns to generate "branch" row ranges for each of the sorting conditions,loops through the entire data set one more time to create "branch" ranges for each of the base ranges.
I could generate some code to accomplish a one-off solution for a given configuration of a single data set (provided there is not a list length limit in a chart series that I'd be violating)...but without a dynamic named range, I don't know how to get to something that would update appropriately. So in essence, I am still stuck at the dynamic range part of this.
I am trying to automate a process where a series of numbers would get populated according the range values. Also I am trying to get the automation to pick up the next range when finished with first one and continue with the task.
Here's what I have as start info and where I want to get to.
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 have been working on part of the code for my spreadsheet and it works fine in the spreadsheet “Databaseform” however when I copied the code to my master spreadsheet “Paul_PartLocDBCombo” it does not work, I get the error:
Method ‘ range’ of object ‘_worksheet’ failed The code is then highlighted in yellow, the code is: Set rng = wksPartsData.Range("a1", Range("a65536").End(xlUp))
Meaning this part is incorrect but I don’t know why? To work it: go to Databaseform and press start. Enter 7mm in the product field and press find all. It will then return all the matching results in the userform. Its this I want to try and achieve on the other spreadsheet when the button find label is pressed.
I have a range which will change in size & in content, & I want this to be a Named Range at whatever size it is.
Reason I want to is because I want to make a Validation List with this dynamic range. I also want a Validation list which lists the content of 2 or more dynamic ranges which may or may not be on the same worksheet - is this possible?
i.e. First dynamic range: called "Milestones" at A11 Second dynamic range: called "Activities" at A25 & make a Validation list that will list content of both
I have a set of data with names in col A, Currency in col B, Amount in Col C. I want to convert all the amounts in NON-USD based on exchange rate I input daily into column D.
How do i search down the row for the next name that is denominated in GBP / YEN etc and keep converting until I dont find any more other currencies in it. I tried to improvise on the finding nth but couldnt get anything out of it. Have attached a spreadsheet.
The sheet has a price list (I attached the sheet). its a width x height(drop) format. If width or height <= minimum width/height then use the minimum listed. if width or height > minimum <=maximum then lookup in table next heightest value. here is the complication. any oversized items are priced as roundup((size -biggest size) / (biggest - second biggest size),0) * ( price of biggest-price of second biggest). so if my widths are
I have a VBA method that goes thru and calculates a bunch of stuff and puts this calculated info into a static data structure. This method is called 'setProjectInfo()'. This method is reliant on values on my worksheets, So as the user makes changes to the worksheet, I want setProjectInfo() to get called so it refreshes the data structure with updated information. I then have a bunch of helper methods to access different parts of this data structure. These helper methods are used in the formulae of a bunch of cells on a worksheet (ie '=getPercentComplete(period)', etc, etc).
This is all working well except for one thing. Sometimes the helper methods get called BEFORE setProjectInfo() gets called.. So, the helper methods return stale information. I can only get around this by manually recalculating the spreadsheet again. setProjectInfo() does enough stuff and takes a long enough time that I don't want to have to call it at the top of each helper method.
I've put the call to setProjectInfo() in a cell formula at the top of the my spreadsheet in hopes that Excel would know enough to call it first.. But that does not seem to work. Net, how can I get VBA to always call setProjectInfo() BEFORE it calls any other VBA methods?
I have a problem as I need to present data with different data sources. I'd like the calculations to be as "automatic" as possible. The data consists of countries and regions and their sales pipe. The pivot table doesn't give me all the data that I need to present so I need to add extra columns with calculations and data from other data sources.
The problem I meet is that the 'total row' within each group needs to be reflected in my columns as well (F:G) It works as long as the data I've imported has the same amount of States within each group of Contry but if the number of states differs with the newly imported data - my "manual" columns are wrong.
(A;B;C;D;E;F;G;H) Country;State; Red; Amber; Green; Quota; Total PV; Coverage;
I've created a Pivot table on the first 5 columns [Country; ...; Risk] (A:E)
The following columns are manually entered based on the pivot (F:H)
Quota (data source from another sheet) Total PV (a sum of Red; Amber; Green in the Pivot) Coverage (returns % of TotalPV/Quota)
For each group Quota and Total PV needs to summarize the above data within the group. I've 'hard coded it' today (SUM(F3:F5)) - F3:F5 can as well be F3:F8 or F3:F4 depending on the imported data. I have 8 different Countries (groups) with different amounts of States and 3 different sheets for each Region of countries so I need this summary to be automatic based on what group (Country) it belongs to. How can I make the calculation different so that it's dynamic as well as the Pivot table? Today it's not dynamic and it needs my 'hands on'.
I got a range of data on sheet2, size changes everyday (dynamic) And in sheet1. I got a range of data and the size changes everyday as well. I need to copy the range in sheet2 to sheet1. The position would be at the cell after the last data in sheet1. e.g.
sheet1 got 105 data I need to paste data of sheet2 start of row106 in sheet1
I have this macro named ABC to bring the name ranges to another worksheet. The name ranges are already saved in the workbook with the below name range. I used "***" so that this formular can go to the last cell that has "***" on A column and it worked untill someone typed "(xxx)" and the range now stops right before the "(xxx)"
I am looking to sum a dynamic range and can't quite figure it out. The data expands down rows every week, and I want the sum formula (the final row) at the bottom to include the newly updated rows. I can't dynamically name the numbers to be summed because the dynamic named range will include the sum number and create a circular reference. For example:
5 4 3 2 14
the bottom row (14) is the sum. Next week, my numbers are
5 4 3 2 5 19
I have a macro that will automatically put the sum formula in the correct row and column, but can't quite figure out the formula.
Is it possible to loop through a list of sheets and execute some calculations that have sheet references from a different list of worksheets? For example, you have a list (list 1) of your worksheets, which will be the destinations of the calculations, and you have a second list (list 2) of worksheets that the calculations are based on. So, lets say there are sheet1 and sheet2 in list 1, and sheetA and sheetB in list 2. The calculations based on sheetA would appear in sheet1, and calculations based on sheetB would appear in sheet2. I thought the code would look something like this:
Code: Sub LoopthroughWorksheets() Dim sheet_name As Range Dim sheet_name2 As Range Set sheet_name2 = Sheets("WS").Range("F:F")
I'm getting a "Run-time error '1004: Application-defined or object defined error" at this line:
I some code that reduces a long list of dates from one source of data (in its own worksheet) down to a unique list of dates (on another worksheet). I need to create a new worksheet for each date in the range (named for the date), and then allocate each line item for that date in the source data into its repsective worksheet.
I am trying to perform a count against two ranges of data.Both ranges contain contain values (dates in my case).I am trying to perform a count where cells in column A have data but cells in column B do not.
Is there a way this can be done in Excel 2003? I have tried numerous COUNT and SUMPRODUCT queries but have not found a way to get this to work.
Objective: I have a financial spreadsheet, which i want to bring to my front sheet the sum of data in between 2 week ranges. For example, if I select week 26 and 52 then all the relevant data will be summed into the relevant cell on my front sheet.
Current Technique: I have on my "data" spreadsheet my columns in B1 down listing Week 1-52 and then the cell headings in B2 onwards. I have created a summary table which currently shows the 4 quarters of the year (1-13, etc) and I am using helper columns to pull this data onto my "front sheet", depending what selection is made on the drop down e.g. 1-13, then all summary data will be dragged onto my front sheet.
On the front sheet, in each cell I need information to be displayed I use the following formula;
