Excel 2007 :: Table Autoexpansion Does Not Include Formulas
Nov 30, 2011
I am working with Excel 2007 and have an occurring problem when I resize a table. Some of my forumlas copy to the new rows, while others do not. How can I ensure all my formulas copy to the newly created rows. Also sometime when they do copy to the new row an #REF! in the formula where the range should be , yet if I copy and paste the formula from the above row it works.
Here is an example of one of my Formulas Note Sheet1!$J$3:$J$500 is also a table Called Data
=SUMPRODUCT((Sheet1!$J$3:$J$500)*(Sheet1!$A$3:$A$500=$A14&DP$4)) and this is how it is inserted into a new row
I am running Excel 2007 on Windows Vista Business 32 bit. Recently I have noticed that if I enter a formula into an empty, unsused cell, it is recognized as a formula. If I modify that formula, it is then recognized as text and does not work as a formula. The only way I can get the cell to recognize a formula is to delete the cell and start over. This same scenario does not occur on previously stored workbooks. I have checked all of the flags that I know about, including the Options function.
Background info: I have developed a Hired Equipment Time Sheet with numerous formulas to auto populate and calculate various cells to minimize user impute requirements.
Can cell formulas be toggled on and off to allow manual impute of data rather than the formula automatically populating information in the cell if the need arises? If so, can this be done via a drop down pick? Also can or will the formula still be protected?
I have set up a table and for ease of explanantion Column C has a formulas in it to add together the values found in Column A and B.
EG C3 foumula = "=sum(A3+B3)"
Now in cols d & e I have manually entered figures and in colum F I want to add up those figures so F3 should read "=sum(D3+E3)"
In the past I have always been able to just copy the cell C3 and paste it into F3 and the formula would automatically copy and offset the various cells to the correct cells for the new posiitoning.
However, for some reason when I copy the cell, it now pastes the value only into the pasted cell and does not copy the formula, if I click on paste special to try to just copy the formula I now get a pop up asking me if I want to paste as Unicode Text or Text.
Using Microsoft Excel 2007 and all of a sudden, my spreadsheets are not automatically calculating the formulas. It does not matter if I have other workbooks open or not. I still get the problem. It does not happen 100% of the time to make it even more complicated.
- Calulation set to auto in Excel Options.
- No VBA functions being used. I can the worksheet summing 1 + 1 and get the error periodically. It does not have to do with the spreadsheet being too complicated.
- Even if I can hit Ctrl-Alt-F9 to force the formulas to calculate, it won't work.
Suddenly realized that I can't paste formulas. When I copy/paste, it only pastes as values. When I copy and Paste Special, the only option is "Unicode Text". No option for formulas, formatting, or anything else. Excel 2007.
I am running Microsoft Excel 2007 on Windows XP. Right now, I have the standard macro set up that will replace formulas with their values. It's the standard macro that does this for the entire sheet:
Code: Sub All_Cells_In_Active_WorkSheet_1() With ActiveSheet.UsedRange .Cells.Copy .Cells.PasteSpecial xlPasteValues .Cells(1).Select End With Application.CutCopyMode = False End Sub
However, with this being a daily task, the issue is that this wipes the formulas out for future dates, which is obviously problematic. To be more specific:
I have one tab (HISTORICAL) with over 200 rows with each business day this year. Columns B through H will pull data from two other tabs (ENTRY1 and ENTRY2) that is entered daily, using a formula that tells Excel to only pull the data for the current date:
So each day, someone will open this sheet and input their data on the ENTRY1 and ENTRY2 tabs. These numbers will auto populate over to the HISTORICAL tab for that specific day.
Also on each day, someone else will open the sheet and go to the HISTORICAL tab and run the macro that converts the formulas on that sheet to the value.
I want to be able to run the macro only for the row with the current date (and any date before will be fine since those will already be converted anyway).
So, taking today for example, when I run the macro, I want it to convert the data only in the 11/8/2011 and previous rows, but NOT for the 11/9/2011 and later rows.
What I have attached is spreadsheet I've built to quickly generate an army list for a tabletop game. Anyone can click on the Force Organization Slot (FOS) and choose the type of unit and from there, select the specific unit name attached to that FOS. Each individual unit has a list of options/upgrades currently attached to the sheet from cells AD through AX and the points cost listed next to each upgrade.
For example, when selecting the Rhino unit from the Dedicated_Transport FOS, there should be 4 drop down lists of selectable upgrades (Storm Bolter, Hunter-Killer Missile, Dozer Blade, and Extra Armor). Currently, I have only named the ranges for the Rhino and Razorback units in order to get this working properly without having to go through the entire list of units and change names/create ranges/ect.
What I'm aiming to do is to create an individual drop down list that is directly related to the Unit Name cell in order to populate a complete and selectable upgrade list for each unit. I have played around with some functions that work in the spreadsheet (see cells X10:X12) but do not work properly with Data Validation.
Oddly enough, when I enter this formula under Data Validation:
I've got a main workbook (excel 2007) with a main spreadsheet where i group all the information (text and values) about brands and models linked to 10 workbooks (brands) with several spreadsheets (one spreadsheet=one model).
On the main spreadsheet I've got 16 lines for each model which they have the follow formulas, wich are linked to other workbook / spreadsheet (Mar/Gato)
The difference between above values is 13, it corresponds 12 months and the total column (12+1)
For the formula 3) the table array its the same, the only difference is instead of starting A$3, starts in A$2
5) The update of the formulas 1) 2) 3) for 2014
I'm doing this manually... The formulas are updated like this,for 2013, I've got table array A$3:$AE$78 and the return value (;17, then for 2014 i will have a table array A$3:$AR$78 and the return value will be (;30, and so on
5) Change the network drive
For other reasons I've to change my files to another network drive, something like this:
6) Main Goal
I was thinking using Excel's regular Find and Replace feature to change:
- The network drive designation - the table array area - The return value
But I don't know if this process ( Find and Replace) is safe and clean. I'm doing this manually and I've got on the main worbook/sheet 4000 lines with 3 formulas its 12000 operations!I'm on the 350 line....!
The main goal is to update the all formulas (links) to "brand" workbooks and inside "model" spreadsheets automatically with a macro.
I am using excel 2007 and when I change cells my formulas do not automatically refresh. I have set it to automatic and the calculations will not refresh. How I can force a calculation. I did the control alt f9 and nothing seems to work. Any macro that can force all calculations.
I can't figure out how to make this formula work because I need to use cell AG46 and it contains an IF formula that leaves the cell blank if the sum = 0. I keep getting the #VALUE! error. How do you create a formula using a cell that has an IF formula that could leave the cell blank?
Basically this is what I need in cell I12: =sum(a12)-(ag46*8)
Problem: The macro will be assigned to a command button and will be used by laypersons when they finish filling in data on a worksheet in Workbook 1. The sheet contains maybe 30 columns and 50 rows with a mix of fixed values and values generated by Vlookup and Indirect formulas. I need to copy the sheet from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2. Workbook 2 will be for archival purposes so I want to convert all formulas to fixed values. The catch is dealing with some cells that contain hyperlinks to PDF files...
Current Solution: I currently do this with a macro that moves/copies the sheet from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2, it then selects all cells in the new sheet in Workbook 2, copies all cells, then pastes-special "as values" to the exact same cell locations. This works great for me since the cell formatting and data in the sheet are VERY irregular and I have merged cells all over the place. This method keeps the exact formatting I need maintain:
The problem is that a few of the cells have hyperlinks with "friendly names" and I lose the hyperlinks when I convert to values. The hyperlinks are not inserted directly, they are created by a formula, =HYPERLINK("N:Filepath"&C16&".PDF", "Click_For_PDF"), and the row and column that contains the hyper link will vary for each sheet I want to migrate from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2 using this macro. I want to keep the hyperlink active with the clickable friendly name in Workbook 2.
Possible Solution: I'm open to all types of solutions, but is there a way to essentially use my existing macro but AFTER converting to values with paste-special, go back to the original sheet in Workbook 1 that still contains formulas (or maybe a temporary duplicate sheet I migrate to Workbook 2?), search for all cells with a "value" of "Click_For_PDF", copy ONLY those cells and paste (normal) into the corresponding cell locations in the sheet in Workbook 2 that now contains fixed values? ALL of my hyperlinks have the friendly name "Click_For_PDF" so it should be an easy way to identify the hyperlink cells. The cell location of the hyperlink copied in Workbook 1 needs to carry over to Workbook 2 and I said before, the row and col vary with every sheet I want to archive with this macro.
I am working on word documents that has financial numbers on them. I am copying word pages to excel to calculate the numbers by using formulas and etc. I will cut to the chase; is there a way or a macro to insert into an excel template workbook(.xltx) when we open the template there will be a command button to select the word document (which we want to copy its pages) to excel sheets. When a new page begins a new sheet will be created and the page will be pasted on the new sheet.
It is not important if it has to have a command button to select the word document it is ok to run the macro and select the word document and it does not has to populate sheets according to length of word document (I can create lost of free sheets on the template)
The main idea is to gain the time I spend on copying the word document to excel sheets. Some documents can be very long (100 pages). I am using MS Office 2007.
I triend to export data but excel does not allow me to select word documents.
I'm selecting only some rows in a Table trying to sort only these rows (e.g. rows 11 thru 75 in a 200 row table), but when I hit Sort Excel always overrides my selection by selecting all the rows in the table instead. The same thing happens in VBA. I'm using Excel 2007.
I'm looking for a way to take information that is in a table in an Adobe file and importing it into a table format in Excel 07. I'm able to copy the table from Adobe and paste it into Excel as a picture, as I need the data to come into Excel in columns and rows. I have Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro version that I use to open the PDF file.
I have a pivot table in Office 2007. I want to filter the last column such that the values in the data area are greater than a certain number. But all those filter options are grayed out. The only option available (and working) is to select the top n entries. So clearly a reference into the data field to filter a column works, but why not by value?
I am trying to rename a excel table from its file name after importing the data into the current sheet i am working in. Is there a method for going this? I can do it manually easily, but when I try to record myself within a macro, it still uses the file's previous name in the code before renaming it. Using Excel 2007.
I have been tasked with doing a work tracker so we can see what work operatives have done between a date range. The processing of the date range is being done in VBA.
The tracking info comes from an external table that is linked into Excel (version 2007). This table is also filtered.
The problem I have is that there are 3 different tasks that the operative can be doing (each has a different time on how long it should take to complete the task, however that is irrelevant for what I need).
This results in multiple entries in the table (min of 1, max of 3) for each operative. There is a seperate column in the table as well which has the total number of each task that they have done.
So for example the table looks similar to this.
Clock No - Task - Sum of task 239 ------- A -------- 5 239 ------- B ------- 10 239 ------- C ------- 15
What I want to be able to do is to get the sum total for the sum of tasks for the operative, so in the above example for operative 239 I want a value of 30
Is there a formula that can do this? (it is a filtered table so the formula needs to count only visible items)
Excel 2007 holds data of mine in a "format as table" Table. I want to rank the values in one column. Normally I want to do that by ranking the value in the current row against all the remaining values in that column. That is easy.
I got stuck today when I wanted to rank the value of the field in the current row with only a subset of the values in the column. I want to rank the current against the half-dozen or so records that have "A" in an adjacent column, and rank values having "B" in that other column against only the other values a "B" and so forth.
It would be best for all this to be done in formulas in the table rather than a clever use of a pivot or other? But really, I may be open to different approach than I was trying for if I can use successfully!
