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...

Snippet of

If Shape = "Freeform 30" Then 'AR
Receiver = ""
End If
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?

More details:

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:
=offset(qty!$a$1,0,0,counta(qty!$A$A), counta(qty!$1$1)).

My question is what formula do I use to reference the sum column for each row on the Det Est Sheet.

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.

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.

Function SRCref2()

myfield1 = ActiveCell.Column
Dim1 = Columns(myfield1).Range("a1").Value
SRCref2 = Dim1
End Function

Function SRCref3()

myfield2 = ActiveCell.Row
Dim2 = Rows(myfield2).Range("a1").Value
SRCref3 = Dim2

End Function

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.

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.

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- 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.

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...

Dynamic Starting Point For Dynamic Named Ranges
I would like to replace the blue bit of this Dynamic Named Range (DNR) with an INDIRECT formula in order to modify the starting point for the DNR: =OFFSET(DATA!$C$60,0,0,20,1). Unfortunately, I can’t seem to get my INDIRECT formula to work in order to use it to replace the blue bit above: INDIRECT("'"DATA"'!&ADDRESS(MATCH('SHEET1'!AC8,DATA_Date,0)+22,3)"). The orange bit of the formula above returns a value of 60, therefore the ADDRESS formula should return $C$60, that can then feed into the INDIRECT and act as the equivalent of DATA!$C$60. But it doesn’t.

Look At Data From One Cell Reference Another Cell Then Display The Results From The Cell Next To It
I have 2 problems relating to LOOKUP.
Not sure if Excel can perform these calculations as they could get to complex.

Problem 1
Can it be possible to have excel look at data from one cell reference another cell then display the results from the cell next to it in another cell, sort of example:

Tab 1 (Never changes)

Tab 2 (Dynamic, changes each week)

So it would work as follows.
Tab2 column B will take Tab2 column A’s data check Tab1 column A and display Tab1 column B’s result.

Problem 2

Dynamic Data Validation :: Dynamic Lists
I have a question on the above but can't seem to find a solution. There are two ways that I can find for dealing with dynamic lists via data validation:-

1) Offset and match, cavet being the data must be sorted a-z
2) Have lists for each potential selection

Is there any way to get around 1 without having to do 2? E.g. Got two columns of data, unsorted, and a list from which the user can choose from. The user chooses from the list in first cell, in the second cell require the dynamic list to return all the values accordingly?

Dynamic Input Cell

I am trying to track unassembled parts and assembled parts simultaneously. I would like to have a cell that I can put a number in (which would represent the number of assembled products manufactured that day) and adjust the totals in both parts accordingly as they are made. For example, if I start the day off with 5 units of all the parts unassembled and manufacture 2 that day, I want to be able to put the number 2 in a cell, hit enter, and then have the unassembled inventory decrease by 2 (per part) and have the assembled inventory increase by 2.

Dynamic Web Query Using Values In Cell
Hey guys i really need your help with this one.

Basically I have a web query. In this web query the url has a part which changes to direct it to a different page with similar formatted data.

These variables that change are all in column A of my excel sheet.

So say it was*VARIABLE*

and Variable changes according to the cell value in A1, A2 etc etc.

Right so say i set up a macro to get the data from the website, and i do some stuff to this data e.g. cop and paste it to B1. I need it to automatically change the urls variable to that of the cells below and then do the copy and pasting to the cell below (B2) it copy and pasted before(B1). Then again it change (the variable at the end of the url) to the value of Cell A3 and after its obtained that data copy and paste it below B3

Im not great with vb, like i can understand it if its infront of me but at this stage i cant write it.

Im guessing though i have to use like a counter that increases makes the variable pick it from the cell below.

Oh and i need it to stop at say when the variable reaches cell A360.

Using Cell Contents As Dynamic Value (sheet Name)
I have a multi-worksheet workbook.

In the first worksheet, called "Overall Totals", I have only two cells utilised (A1 and B1).

The first cell contains the name of one of the other worksheets. This may change, in order to reference other local worksheets.

The second cell should use the value contained in the first cell to go and get a particular piece of data from the other worksheets.

So, for example, if the first cell (A1) in "Overall Totals" contained the data "SheetName 1", and the data we wanted to get from that sheet would be cell F12 from that sheet, then I would expect the second cell (B1) in "Overall Totals" to say something like.

='SheetName 1'!F12

if I was hardcoding it. But I don't want to hardcode it, as the value in A1 could change, and I'd have to re-change lots of hardcoding.

So can I do something like....
