Dynamic Cell Reference Under VBA
The original worksheet will have a sheet of data, but I want the user to be able to insert a row of data into this sheet and have the original values still referenced in the macro.
I do not believe the range function will work, because the relative cell positions are what are changing. Also, the offset command would not work, because the positions are not absolute to the active cell. Correct me if I am wrong...
If Shape = "Freeform 30" Then 'AR
Receiver = "kim.randy@companyX.com"
I want it to point to something like =Receivers!C13
How would I do this without hardcoding the data above?

Dynamic Cell Reference?
Q: How can I point excel to the begining value cell if I know the ending value cell and the nubmer of cells to move to get there?
I have an investing sheet that I need to calculate the CAGR (compound annual growth rate). The formula is (ending value/begining value)^(1/number of years)-1
The number of years can vary but the ending value will aways be in the same cell. I am using a count to see how many years have been entered.
Dynamic Reference To A Cell
I need a dynamic formula which if hard-coded would be something like =(tabname!A7).
But instead of A, I want a calculated value such as ($C$2*12+1). My columns are numbered, so I want to say "the 26th column along", "the 37th along" etc, as C changes. I tried the index formula but couldn't get it to work, assuming it is even the right one.
Dynamic Cell Reference
I have a question about dynamic cell references that I can´t find any info about anywhere else. This is what I want to do: I need to create a sentence that changes depending on user choices. Example:
Cell A1 = Sheet!AX
Displayed text Dear Mr. "name"
Where the X is a number that will change depending on other things. I would love to do something like: =Sheet!A(E1). Where the value in E1 is for example 4. The result would then be =Sheet!A4 and if I changed the value in E1 the reference =Sheet!A(E1) would also change. I don´t know the syntax for doing this or if it is even possible.
Reference Last Cell In Dynamic Named Range
In the attached spreadsheet I am trying to always reference the sum column from Qty in Det Est.
This is because the number of roads changes for each project.
I created a dynamic range name surfacing with the following formula:
My question is what formula do I use to reference the sum column for each row on the Det Est Sheet.
Cell Address In VBA :: Reference A Range In VBA
I have a variable which contains the column number. How do I then reference a range in VBA using that column number, as opposed to the letter? I know how to convert the number into the letter, but I also know there has to be something more simpler. For instance, a form of the ADDRESS function, but in VBA?
Change A Cell Reference Using VBA
Complete and utter newbie here, so I will apologies now if what i am asking is a simple thing or complete nonsense..
I have a spreadsheet which has links in it to another file/spreadsheet.
What i need to do is update/edit those links so that they point to another file and cell reference. Can this be done using a macro? or is this something that cant be done using macros/vba?
New to all this so am just getting to grips with it..
VBA: Vlookup And Return Cell Reference
i am trying to write some code to analyse a weightlifting movement that occurs 3 times. In particular there is a part of the macro where the user will input the start and end time of the movement using input boxes (to only select relevant data).
I want to then use a vlookup function to search for the start and end times in a range (1 column) in the time range and return the cell reference of these so i can select only these values and either create a graph or do more analysis. My code for this particular part so far looks like:
Dynamic Range Reference
I have a sumproduct function that is aimed at a big block of data. Is there a way that I can write the function to where it will always find the last row of the data set and adjust accordingly?
For example if right now the range is A1:G2000 and next month I add 20 rows of data I want the sumproduct ranges to automatically adjust to A1:G2020.
Assign External Cell Reference To Variable In VBA?
I'd like to assign a value located in a cell in a workbook to a variable in a VBA program in another workbook. I do NOT want to open the workbook that contains the cell with the value. I can't get the hang of referencing an external cell reference. Let's say there's a value in a cell named "nbr" in a workbook named "tst.xls" located in a path "c: est" that I want to assign to a variable "tstnbr" in a VBA program, what is the best way to code that?
VBA Macro Needed For Auto Fill Using Another Cell Reference
Is there anyone who can suggest a solution to my problem below ?
Basically, what I need is a macro which would ideally work like this:
if D32 = 1, then the background colour of D4 should be red
if D32 = 2, then the background colour of D4 should be orange
if D32 = 3, then the background colour of D4 should be yellow
if D32 = 4, then the background colour of D4 should be green
And then I plan to use it for columns E, F, G
VBA - Format Range Font Based On Value In A Reference Cell
I am preparing a model for a client that runs excel 2003. I need to change the format of a range based on the value in a cell (reference cell) that is outside the range to be reformatted.
Reference cell is a named cell with the value calculated with a Match() function, the only possible values are (1, 2, 3).
I need the VBA code to retrieve the reference cell value and apply one of three formats to the range. I believe the code for that part is something like:
Private Sub Format_Font()
Set vrange = Range("d63:r63")
Set refrange = Names("ind_agentfee").RefersTo
Set refrange = Mid(refrange, 2)
On Error Resume Next
If refrange = 1 Then
.Style = "Comma"
.NumberFormat = "_(* #,##0.0_);_(* (#,##0.0);_(* ""-""??_);_(@_)"
If refrange = 2 Then
.Style = "Comma"
.NumberFormat = "_(* #,##0_);_(* (#,##0);_(* ""-""??_);_(@_)"
.Style = "Percent"
I am having problems getting the proper opening statements and declarations correct and also get an "Else without Then" error with all combination's that I am attempting. I am sure that the code is mess now as I started with a recorded macro then modified it multiple times while researching the web.
Renaming Workheet As Date Format (cell Reference) Using VBA
I download & import CSV files/ sheets from bank, visa accts etc & I am trying to automate the processes I use including ensuring I (& others) will use the same naming conventions eg visa "yymm" = V0701, Direct Cedits = DC0701 etc. I am having trouble renaming or ensuring the active sheet is named according to the date in A3 eg in the example I want the sheet to be renamed V0702 as the date in the cell is 02/02/07 "dd/mm/yy" format ( imperial system). In BOLD is what I have & the renaming is messy becuase I searched the forum, Walkenbach's bible & help menu.
Dim shtName As String
Dim newName As String
'ActiveSheet.Name = shtName
newName = "V" & Format(DateValue("A3"), "yymm")
'Old name for future reference = Visa0701 (2)
ActiveSheet.Name = newName
Worksheets(shtName).Name = "V" & Format(Range("A3"), yymm)
'Worksheets("Visa0701 (2)").Name = "V" & (FormatDateTime(Range("A3"), yymm))
'To select Date column & format
Range("A3:A66").Selection.NumberFormat = "dd".............
Copying Formula - Dynamic Worksheet Reference
Is it possible to copy a formula and have the worksheet name increase incrementally instead of the cell reference? Example: In column A, I have the following -
I want to copy this across to column B, but instead of just copying that exact foruma across I am wanting a formula that will update the worksheet reference to:
TDI_SR_F_2 is the worksheet after TDI_SR_F_1. NB - I cant use find and replace function as it will change the '1' which is part of the cell reference ($G$1) to a 2 as well. I know I can use TDI_SR_F_3 as a search string, but the process is going to be extremely tedious, i.e. there are literally over 100 rows I need to do the find and replace on.
Udf Vb Looking To Define A Dynamic Absolute Reference
I'm trying to create a user defined function to drop into dblookup functions that will always reference the first cell in an associated column and the first cell in the row of an associated column.
I came up with the following, however the problem is that the udf always returns the values for the active cell's, row and columns.
myfield1 = ActiveCell.Column
Dim1 = Columns(myfield1).Range("a1").Value
SRCref2 = Dim1
myfield2 = ActiveCell.Row
Dim2 = Rows(myfield2).Range("a1").Value
SRCref3 = Dim2
I would nest these in a formula such as "=srcsum(srcref2(), srcref3())".
Ideally I could then use this same funtion anywhere instead of having to use and worry about the accuracy of "=srcsum($a$2,$b$1)"."=srcsum($a$3,$b$1)"."=srcsum($a$4,$b$5)".etc.
It seems like there should be a current cell method or something but I can't find it and I'm not smart enough it seems to use vb to designate some kind of floating intersect as a base for a row and column reference.
Refer Folder/Filename In VBA Code Through Named Cell Reference
I have the following codes in which I am to refer a file and folder to do some further processes.
myfilename = "C:Documents and settingsacsMy DocumentsEntrymyfile1.xls"
folderPath = "C:Documents and settingsacsMy DocumentsEntry"
I want to enter these two paths in a sheet in my excel report file (For example, I am running the report from Report1.xls, in which there is a sheet name "Filepaths". In this,
in B5, I would like to enter the Filepath (B5 named as "FILEPATH")
in B6, I would like to enter the Folderpath (B6 named as "FOLDERPATH")
So that, if I am copying the folder to another area, I no need to change the code every time in the VBA editor. I can do changes in these cells and it will be taken as the path to run the code further.
Dynamic Charting Via Dropdown Reference And Offset Function

i would like to make a dynamic chart that updates the data ranges based on something like this: ....
Dynamic SumIF Formulas That Reference Changing Codes
I have a list of codes from which I'm trying to extract all unique entries.
For example, col A has 001, 001, 002, 003, 003, 003, 004, ...
I'm trying to create a report template with formulas that reference col A and return a single unique entry for each code so that the new column has only 001, 002, 003, 004.
Essentially, the codes reference customers. A customer can have multiple purchases -- but I'm trying to create a report in which I can utilize SumIf formulas to Sum the purchases for each customer and represent those purchases on a single line per customer code.
The catch is that the purchases change monthly (i.e., next month the purchases may be 001, 002, 002, 002, 004) so my report template needs to have the flexibility to adapt without me rewriting the SumIf formulas and return SumIf results for only customers 001, 002, 004. Whereas in the prior month, the report returned SumIf results for customers 001, 002, 003, 004.
Circular Reference With Dynamic Named Range Used In Formula
I have a problem creating a circular reference with dynamic ranges. I have searched already but can't find the specifc problem. I have a spreadsheet where I use vba code to insert extra columns. Within the worksheet there are sum calculations at the end of each row. When I add a new column within the table I would like the sum calculation to expand to account for this extra column.
Now, I thought that dynamic ranges would be the way to go but the only way I can see to do it creates a circular reference as the CountA function trys to count the cell with the sum function in it.
Cell Reference :: Formula To Reference New Cells
I have lets say 12 months of data. I have formulas that reference the latest 6 months. When I insert a new column to input a new month, how can I make the formulas include the new months without manually updating them.
12 months of data exist in cells B3:M3 going from B3(oldest) to M3(newest). Formulas reference latest 6 months of data in cells H3:M3. When a new month hits, I insert a column after column M.I would like the formulas to now reference cells I3:N3 which is now the newest 6 months.
(dynamic) Arrays In VBA
Well I find myself going round in circles so I thought I'd just ask hopefully solve things quicker.
I'm struggling with arrays in VBA, at some point I could use them but now it seems I've forgotten everything and even reading some tips on-line doesn't seem to be helping at this point.
I'd like to be able to use a dynamic 2-dimensional array to store values. I'm reading these in from a worksheet under certain conditions (depending on a value in another column) and that part works. I know I'll always have 2 columns but I don't know the amount of rows.
I'm calling a Sub that does an if-test and copies the valeus into the array, then I'd like to "reDim" the array 1 row larger for the next pass.
To get an array like so:
Depending on how I make initial declarations I either end up with an "subscript out of range" or "array already dimensioned" error. So I'm apparently not getting the right syntax in the dim or redim?
Dynamic Range Within VBA
i am coloring cells:
Sheets("MySheet").Range("a1:f200").Interior.ColorIndex = 5
i want a dynamic range, so something that would look like this as an excel function:
i want the equivalent of this programmed (hard coded) into vba
i don't want to reference to a defined name with vba, because the user can delete that.
Dynamic Dates In VBA
My spread sheet holds data with input dates recorded. Periodically there is a requirement to remove and copy elsewhere data that is older than 365 days using the Auto Filter. I have a macro that , on first pass, selects the required dates older than 365 days copies and pastes but on the 2nd execution of the macro with a different date required it doesn’t work. Looking at the code the date is not changed. Is there a way around this problem? I am also experiencing a problem finding the next available empty cell in which to copy. I have used serial numbers for dates having first had trouble with dates in dd/mm/yyyy format.
Dynamic Range In Vba Coding
I'm trying to write a code which would place formulas in the row just below the my range (normally a matrix of figures) to sum the column in that just above that. Here's what I've got so far but it doesn't work.
Naming A Dynamic Range By VBA
I am making a simple database worksheet for the junior. The first thing we need to re-define the new "size" of the database to do some future calculations. I write some code in workbook open to initiate the name area:
maxrow = 0
maxrow = Range("a7"). CurrentRegion.Rows.Count
Range(Cells(8, "N"), Cells(maxrow, "N")).Name = "tbl_left"
when the junior re-open the workbook after closed, the size of the database
does not growth to a new area even junior add rows of data before close. It seems the currentregion does not work, I've tested it in VBE by press " F8".......
Dynamic Range Borders Via VBA
With Range("A12", Range("E65536").End(xlUp))
.LineStyle = xlContinuous
.Weight = xlThin
.ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
.LineStyle = xlContinuous
.Weight = xlThin
.ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
.LineStyle = xlContinuous
.Weight = xlThin......................
It is supposed to border data from columns A to E for all rows where data exists in column A. (like a dynamic range). How would I change the dynamic reference I have now?
VBA Dynamic Range Selection Failure
I have a log that I use to keep track of my hours where the days hours and charge numbers get summed and moved to a new sheet via a command button. One of the categories is week ending date. I want the week ending date cells to merge if they match and cannot get the range I want to highlight. I can move the data, find and define the first and last cells in the range, but can't get the range.select command to work. I think it is just a syntax error, as I am new to VBA.
I can open a Locals window and watch it assign values to myFirstCell and myLastCell of "$A$36" and "$A$44" respectively, but I get an error on either the set range= or range.select lines.
My code is as follows:
Private Sub Post_Hours_To_Log_Click()
'Posts the day's hours to the hours tracker.
Dim myFirstCell, myLastCell As Variant
Dim myRange As Variant
***Removed N/A code that goes to another sheet and decides which data to copy***

VBA Open File In Dynamic Named Folder
Anyone up for getting me started on code to open a file in a "dynamic" directory, specifically:
Main directory is G:REPORTS
The file name is "Pivot_xx-xx-xx.xls"
The directory where the file is located is G:REPORTSxx-xx-xx
xx-xx-xx is yesterday's date
Vba Dynamic Column With Start & End Parameters
I have a sheet of data from a SQL server in Sheet1 that will be updated periodically. The data is basically structured in a date (column A), and value (column B) format.
I'm trying to create some graph functionality so that it would be possible to graph desired ranges of the data by only entering start and end dates.
That is, in Sheet 2, I enter, say, 12/31/1990 in A1, and 12/10/2006, in A2, and a column is created in SHEET3 that represents this data. The request is similar to 'datebetween' in a pivot table. It would be ok if the data created is a pivot table, however, I've struggled to find a way to do this. It seems that any range you name cannot use variables.
If this question is misleading, I'm trying to use the code
However, I want "A1:A10" to be variables. Something like:
Sheet1.Range("Range("F6").Value:Range("F9").Value").Copy Sheet2.Range("A2")***Note: this doesn't work b/c of range object.
Dynamic Refresh Pivot Table Pagefields With Macro VBA
A simple example of the problem: Imagine a pivot table has two pagefields at the top. The first list the gender ("boy" or "girl"). The second one below it lists people's names. How can it be programmed so that when the first (gender) filter is selected to "boy", pagefield 2 (the names) will only display the names of boys. So I would like the pagefield to work like regular multiple filters would. (And not list every possible item for all)
VBA Workbook Reference Via Variable
Ive just finished writing a macro that copies data from different parts of one workbook into a new workbook. However after doing all that my boss now informs me that the first workbook will be renamed regularly.
Is there a way adding a reference to a workbook that is not dependant on the name? Possibly declare it as a variable at the beginning or something? The indexing is not possible either as they might have multiple Spreadsheets open at any one time.
Reference Changing Files In VBA
I have recorded a basic macro that sources data from a number of workbooks.
If I change the filename in the workbook with the source data or move this file to a different folder path the macro does not run without errors.
Does anyone know what vba code I can use to address this problem?
Add Library Reference Using VBA Code
I need to add a Reference to the "The Microsoft Visual Basic Extensibility Library 5.3" using VBA code in an Excel spreadsheet. I know how to do it going to Tools...References select the library etc, but I'd rather do it using VBA code so I don't have to do this extra step.
Reference A Userform Numbered Textbox In Vba
Is there a way i can use a userform Textbox labeled jobNum1 in vba code with a counter "ctr" something like jobNum(ctr) = 5. I basically have multiple jobNum textboxes labeled jobNum1, jobNum2, jobNum3.....etc and would like to repeat the code for each counter until reaching 5. Take the following sub:
Cell Reference- Able To Reference Two Cells To The Left Even As More Cells Are Added
I have 5 columns set up: A,B,C,D,E
D is the sum of A and B
E is the sum of A,B,and C
As I add in a new column to the right of C (call it C2), I need D (which has shifted over one) to sum A,B, and C.
I also need E (which has also shifted over one) to sum A,B,C, and C2.
Essentially I need a function in a cell that will be able to reference two cells to the left even as more cells are added.
Msg Box Based On Relative Vba Reference
Im trying to get a message box to pop up if the result of a count formula is greater than one; ie. in a list of data to warn of repeats of a certain key reference.
Ive never had a drama with putting a message box in before but ive only based it off a constant reference whereas in this case, it will be based on a relative reference; for example, when inputted a value in A2, that has the same value in A1, the count formula in B2 will be 2, so i want a message box to come up. Same goes if the same value was put in A3, and B3 was greater than
Defining Column Reference With ADO Connections Using VBA
It extracts Employee ID's and there Names from our database and lists them in columns A:C
What I want to do is list the ID's manually and get it to extract only the Names for the ID's I listed in Column A...
I am not sure how to amend this code to look at ID's listed in column A instead of extracting the whole database.
I know I need to add a "WHERE ID =" clause in the SQL but not sure how to say WHERE ID = A1, A2, etc.
VBA Conditional Formatting That Works With Reference To Another Worksheet
I need to create conditional formatting on a worksheet where I need to change the cell colour based on 6 cases.
The VBA that I have found does not work with referenced cells to another worksheet in the workbook which I need as all the data is referenced with calculations.
I also need to specify the cells that the VBA will apply to as I need to apply 6 or 7 different different sets of conditional formatting on the same worksheet to different groups of cells.
Correct VBA Syntax To Reference Cells In Functions (Correlation)
I trying to populate cells with a correlation function using VBA, I have set up dynamic references/arguments for the fuction to take on however I just can't get it to work. Currently instead of populating the formula into the cell, it's just populates it as a string based on what's entered below =correl(Ystart &":"& yend, xstart&'":"'& xend").
FYI - The correl function takes on two ranges,. I've predefined these below.
lastcell = ActiveSheet.Range("c575").End(xlUp).Row
firstcell = ActiveSheet.Range("c1").End(xlDown).Row
Ystart = ("b" & firstcell)
yend = ("b" & lastcell)
xstart = ("c" & firstcell)
xend = ("c" & lastcell)
Range("c575:c580").Formula = "=correl(Ystart &":"& yend, xstart&'":"'& xend")"
Copy The Dynamic Auto-Sum Cell And Paste It To Another Cell
2 Different worksheets to work with
The "Nursery" Worksheet
I already have code that puts the Auto-Sum amount below the last data row in the column named "Nursery Grand Total" in the Nursery Worksheet.
This Auto-Sum amount, however, will always be in a different row because the amount of rows generated from the report is always different as well, therefore, the Auto-Sum cell/row changes with that to be right below the last data row in the "Nursery Grand Total" Column.
I would like to copy (values only) the amount from this dynamically changing Auto-Sum cell and paste it into another worksheet named "Totals".
The "Totals" Worksheet
In my "Totals" worksheet, I have two columns.
"Master Total Description" and "Master Grand Totals".
In the "Master Total Description" column, I have a cell named "Nursery Grand Total" which is exactly the same name as the header row in the "Nursery" worksheet.
In the "Nursery" worksheet/"Nursery Grand Total" column, I would like to copy the auto-sum amount
and paste it into....
the "Totals" worksheet/"Nursery Grand Total" row/"Master Grand Totals" column
Here are some pictures for reference...
How To Name A Dynamic Range & Make A Validation List (of 2 Dynamic Ranges)
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?
First dynamic range: called "Milestones" at A11
Second dynamic range: called "Activities" at A25
& make a Validation list that will list content of both
