I created a chart in Excel 2003 which relies on dynamic named ranges. For years this chart has been working beautifully. I recently converted to Excel 2007 and the chart no longer understands the dynamic named range for the x-axis. It understands the y-axis dynamic named ranges just fine. I have tried renaming the x-axis range to various names (none of which contain the word chart). I also experimented by just using a static range name. And I have tried recreating the chart from scratch with the same results. It lets me create the chart initially but then when I refresh the worksheet, the x-axis is blanked out.
I have a stock chart that I want to update dynamically if the data record length changes. From the source data menu, I tried to use the following data ranges:
=OFFSET(Candles!$AB$8,1,0,COUNTA($AB:$AB)) ---> Date, x values =OFFSET(Candles!$AD$8,1,0,COUNTA($AD:$AD)) ---> High =OFFSET(Candles!$AE$8,1,0,COUNTA($AE:$AE)) ---> Low =OFFSET(Candles!$AF$8,1,0,COUNTA($AF:$AF)) ---> Close
When I place any of these in the data range box under 'x axis labels or values', I receive the message "This function is not valid".
The MS webpage at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ex...098011033.aspx describes using these formulas but they don't appear to work.
I have a database in excel with a lot of tables in which lets a uses a combo box so the user select can view just one table.
I want to be able to create a macro so when a button is pressed, it copies the data into a new workbook and creates a chart so they can do whatever they want without disrupting anything in the original workbook.
I have been able to find code that will export the data and create a chart (see below) but the problem is the range changes from table to table so I need to find a way of changing how the chart picks up the data range.
Sheets("Temp").Select Cells.Select Selection.Copy Workbooks.Add ActiveSheet.Paste Range("A1").Select Charts.Add ActiveChart.ChartType = xlColumnClustered ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source:=Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1:C10") ActiveChart.Location Where:=xlLocationAsObject, Name:="Sheet1" End Sub
So at the moment when charting ony cells A1:C10 will be plotted no matter what the size of the table is and making the target range bigger only sees the blank cells being plotted.
I'm now trying to get my chart to use that range. I read at [URL] .... that I need to make sure my series reference is a fully qualified reference. So I've entered that series reference using the name of the workbook followed by the range name (=2012-PIRS.xlsx!SAM_CLAR2DEL). I have two copies of my workbook (one as xlsm with VBA project, and one with xlsx without VBA) and I can't get Excel to accept the series value in either workbook.
ERROR MSG: The formula you typed contains an error. Try one of the following: - Make sure you've included all parentheses and required arguments. - To use a function, click Insert Function on the Formulas tab (in the Function Library group). - If you include a reference to another sheet or workbook, verify that the reference is correct. - If you are not trying to enter a formula, avoid.........
I have built a chart using dynamic nameranges. The problem that I am facing is I tested it on two systems . One system the charts works fine but the other system the charts does not work . Both are excel 2007. Now the error that I get is if I see the chart data source from one system it is showing "!". The other file shows the chart data source as "0!". What should I be checking so that it works in the other system as well?
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 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.
I want to create dependent lists using data validation. The lists need to be created from ranges that will be growing as users add more data. I think the best way to create the list is a VLOOKUP. However, I am not sure how to use the VLOOKUP when the range is changing.
I have attached an example. I have a list on sheet "Vlookup" called "FRUIT" with "apple", "orange", "banana". Then to make the depedent lists I have created three other lists called: "APPLE", "ORANGE", "BANANA". I want to pull the COST from sheet "VALUES" into the lists "APPLE", "ORANGE", "BANANA". Users will be adding costs next to the FRUIT they purchase.
I am trying to create a vlookup to get a count of trouble tickets techs completed daily within a table I created, I am using a table since its dynamic. For example I need to see how many tickets Joe completed in a day. See below...
Tech Ticket# Comments Status Joe 1234 Replaced HD Closed John 3212 Replace Motherboard Closed Joe 5678 Installed OS Closed
Above is just an example (my table has 40 columns). I need to vlookup joe and get the count of the closed tickets.
So I was looking for reassurance or validation more than anything. From what I can tell you can in order to build a chart that is dynamic throughout a range, you use the offset and count or counta function - 1. That part isn't a problem. My question is once you created that for your charts do you just normally plot your chart range or do you have to reference the named range directly into the chart range?
I have monthly sales, and i wanna be able to sum the last-twelve month sales, when i select the month from a drop-down list. For example, when i select Feb14 from the drop-down, I want the formula to sum the sales between mar13-feb14. how can i accomplish that?
I am creating a consolidation worksheet. It contains a macro that automatically copy data from other sources and paste it into my DB sheet. It already works, but I want to improve it. The source worksheet databases has been defined with the name “SOURCE”. Is there any way that I can make my macro look for this dynamic ranges directly, copy and paste it into my DB sheet. I am attaching an example of what my current macro is doing.
I've got a spreadsheet that I download a list of information into. The information relates to activities that are taking place e.g. start time, end time, type of activity (e.g. meeting) and duration (which identifies the length of the activity in 30 min slots e.g. 9.30am - 11.30am = 4).
The rest of the columns are labelled to represent the time in 30 min slots starting from 9am. What I would like excel to be able to do is to identify the first cell in the range which would be the cell that represents the start time in the row. Then from this cell fill cells in the row up to the end time with something - it doesn't matter what as long as the cell can be differentiated from the other blank cells in the row.
I don't think that I've explained myself that well so I've attached the spreadsheet for you to look at.
I'm having a fit with this formula; maybe the gurus will show me what I'm doing wrong. I have a list of area numbers along with dollar amounts that go with these area numbers. I have created a named range named "Areas" and another one named "MO_PD".
At the bottom of the worksheet I am doing a recap that takes the area number and sums all the entries in the MO PD column. This approach has been done before with Thomach's help. I'm trying to mimic it, but it's not working for me.
NOTE - I know that I can get around this using a pivot table, but I would like to use this approach for now. I would at least like to know what I'm doing wrong. Also, I'm not totally sure if I did the dynamic named ranges correctly so that may need to be fixed.
I've been working a macro that seems pretty simple, but has been giving me loads of trouble. I have about 20 worksheets in a Workbook, which all have a similar template (i.e. the data I'm interested in starts on row 14), but have different amounts (rows) of data in them. I want a macro that sorts all the data in ascending/descending order according to column Q. The problem that I am running into is not that the macro only works for the sheet that is active when I run the macro as opposed to every single sheet in the workbook ....
I have just upgaded to Excel 2007 and previously used a Dynamic Range Wizard addin in Excel 2003 but it does not work in 2007. I think it originally come from Robert Bruce but can not find it on the web to get an update.
I have a question regarding dynamic validation. I have attached a sample spreadsheet to clarify if my explanation doesn't. I have a list of codes that map to a list of other codes that are not one to one mapping. I would like for the other users of this code to populate what the correct code on our side is but without having to go thru the entire list in a validation field. (if that makes since)
Using validation before in a similar instance i used indirect to grab a named range to help shorten the list for them. However in this case that would be a ton of ranges i would have to set up! I've tried Match, countif and index in an offset formula in the validation list but can never get it to work!
I run a macro on a spreadheet in which the rows increase daily. In the macro I simply recorded an end.down to select a column of data which ends up being fixed row numbers in the code so the next time I run the macro it only selects the range I selected last time.
The range element below needs to be dynamic. A1 and down meaning if i was to do this out of VBA I would hold CTRL+SHIFT+DOWN but i cant do that from macro record as it doesn't work, I'm guessing this Range("A1:A73") is the element I need to change but I don't know what to?
I am looking for a non volatile alternative to using OFFSET in my named ranges as my models are generally quite bulky and it is beginning to make me quite angry having to build these models in calc manual.
Can anybody provide a non-volatile alternative to this?
I have a spreadsheet with a large number of graphs on and lots of data.
Most the graphs look across 20 or so columns and one or 2 rows down.
The problem is that l need to insert new colums in now, and obviously excel graphs dont recognise the inserted column data.
Therefore l believe using named ranges may solve this problem...
I have the formula =OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$1,0,0,2,MATCH("DC",Sheet1!$1:$1))
However i need to expand on this to achieve what i need to do.
1. Firstly l only want to look from column C onwards (so ignoring all data in column A and B)
2. I need the match to match to columns starting with the letters "DC", however there is a number after this, so it is not a direct match. The match needs to ignore columns with any other heading start.
3. is there anyway to automatically refresh the graphs to the named range once it changes, or any simble vb macro i can run?
I am looking for a macro that will allow me to create a dynamic range based on the settings I give it. I would like the dynamic range to be called tracking_number and it to have a reference to =Offset(MainReport!$A$2,0,0,COUNTA(MainReport!$A:$A),1)
If this is possible I would really appreciate it. The reason I need this is because I have 2 workbooks. They are the one with the MainReport in it and then the Master workbook. Every day the workbook containing the MainReport is overwritten with more data, so I can not store a dynamic range and reference it each day.
I have a dynamic named rage "AREA" which can contains values like "Area1, Area2, Area3, ..."
For each item in list AREA I have another dynamic named range, named exactly as the item, so for example I have a dynamic named range "AREA1" with values "SubArea1.1, SubArea1.2, ..." and also a dynamic named range "AREA2" with values "SubArea2.1, SubArea2.2, ..." and so on, I think it's pretty clear and straight forward (I am modelling the fact to have several areas and each of them has several sub areas).
Now, I have cell A1 being validated against the list AREA, that is, the source for A1 is "=AREA", so that I can choose one of the values in the named range AREA; I also have cell A2 being validated against the list that I choose in cell A1 using the INDIRECT function, that is, the source for A2 is "=INDIRECT(A1)".
I have already realised that this approach for cell A2 does not work, as it seems that INDIRECT does not work for dynamica named cells.
An option would be using the following for the source of A2: ....
I have a huge database. The rows are broken up by the groups. The columns are broken up by months, quarters, and totals. All the named ranges are the same exact size because all groups have the same category names and all columns have the same amount of months and quarter columns. So it sort of looks like this
Actual 2006-----------------------------Actual 2007 Group Category Jan Feb Q1 Total-------Group Category Jan Feb Q1 Total 100 Labor Cost 220 130 100 Labor Cost-Expense Group Category Jan Feb Q1 Total 101 Labor Cost 101 Labor Cost-Expense
Hopefully this gives you a good idea of what the spredsheet format is. Right now I have named ranges for all the groups and years. So the top left name is A06_100, then it goes A06_101, etc. What I'm trying to do is set this up as easy as possible to insert rows in the named ranges and keep the named range, because they are referenced a lot in other worksheets. Also if any columns get added. Basically I want it as user friendly as possible so when people change things it stays together.
I am trying to create a dynamic named range with a sales rotation tracker. Basically, I have a list of leads that come in each week and I add them to the tracker distribute the leads to sales people based on a rotation. I would like to create a dynamic named range for each sales person that will select each sales person's name including the lead information in the row.
I have read all of the dynamic named range information at the link below as well as the advanced dynamic named range page and I can't seem to put my finger on this short of doing it manually.
