Excel 2007 :: Variable References To Multiple Workbooks?

Jan 10, 2012

i make a lot of "trending" files at work where i link a cell to a seperate workbook where all workbooks are in the same folder.

these workbooks all have the same name with the date at the end

workbook 06-01-2011
workbook 06-02-2011
all the way to
workbook 12-31-2011

usually i use find replace to change the date one at a time, but doing that 365 (x how many cells i have referencing) times is redundant

i have seein INDIRECT of the cell changes but nothing for the workbook name chaning

here is what i am trying to do:
='C:File Path[WorkbookX.xls]Sheet1'!A1
where the X WorkbookX is variable (the date at end of file name)

i have a list of all workbook names or just the dates and would like to do something like:

where D1 is the full path name
='C:File Path[Workbook"D1".xls]Sheet1'!A1
where D1 is the date name

using excel 07 i prefer not to use a macro for how i am doing this but if a macro is the only way then i cannot have it actually open the files to pull the data. i prefer no macro since i set it up for future dates so when the new file is created it automatically updates the reference.

my end result i usually have something like A1=referenced cell from first workbook, A2= cell from 2nd book, etc. sometimes B1 would = a different cell from first workbook and so on if i am trending multiple cells from the workbooks

Excel 2007 :: Formula In Worksheet Contains One Or More Invalid References

Feb 7, 2012

Everytime I save my workbook, I get a dialog box that says:

"A formula in this worksheet contains one or more invalid references. Verify that your formulas contain a vlid path, workbook, range name, and cell reference."

First off, it say's "this" worksheet no matter what worksheet is active.

Usually the culprit is a screwed up name that has a #REF in it somewhere. Not this time. All of the formulas appear to be working fine.

Is there an audit feature that will find the errors for me? (Excel 2007)

Excel 2007 :: Crashes When Cell References Using SUMIF To Another Workfile Are Above Row 65k

Nov 28, 2013

I have 2 excel files (both .xlsx) and in the first file i am creating a reference to cells in the 2nd file using SUMIFS function. The 2nd file has 275,000 rows of data. I can create the formula correctly, however when i save the file, it just crashes every time (says not responding). If i create simple reference (=A275000) then its fine so im not sure what the issue is.

Excel 2007 :: Why Does Using Cell References In Formula Give Incorrect Value

Sep 30, 2011

Surely it's user error, but it honestly seems like Excel is not calculating 2 numbers correctly. At work, we have office 2010 where it is not calc'ing correctly; at home I have 2007 and it's fine, but anyway, here's my situation:

Cell A1: 0.003529
Cell B1: 0.48

If i put in Cell C1: "=B1/A1" i get a value of 136.000000 But that's not correct, it should be 136.01587... But if in Cell C1 i put "=0.48/.003529" then i get 136.01587...which is correct.

Why does using cell references in my formula give me the incorrect value?

Changing Hard Coded Column References To Variable References

Oct 22, 2009

I have a number of statements within the Sheet Event Code (Excel 2007). Three times lately I have added a column and had to go back into the code and find all of the references that needed changing to reflect the new column.

I have been working on this for a couple of days and even tried EE, but to no success.

I have read that Defined Names / Constants should be used as often as possible, but even trying that, the VBA code errors out or "hangs up". Even within Bill Jalen's book (VBA and Macros 2007), there is nothing that addresses this, especially using Intersect.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rng As Range

On Error GoTo mEnd
Set rng = Sheets("Log").[F14:F10000]
If Not Intersect(rng, Target) Is Nothing Then
If Target = "" Then
With Sheets("Log")

Excel 2007 :: Change Source Workbook For All External References At Same Time But Avoid Browsing?

Jan 7, 2013

Need to create Working order (in Excel 2007) for filling machine in my factory. Working order is changeable from day to day and the deference is product quantity. Product quantity in working order [File - Working order] is changing according to the each sales plan [7-Jan-13, 8-Jan-13] - (File Working order is Linked to the appropriate sales plan in this case - [7-Jan-13]).

Anyway, I need to change the source workbook "sales plan" from [7-Jan-13] to [8-Jan-13] by changing source workbook name in red cell [File - Working order] and not to browsing location?

All source workbooks [sales plan 7-Jan-13, 8-Jan-13]are at the same location in the same folder, only difference is the source workbook names. So, is it possible to change source workbook name (File - Working order - red cell) for all external references (File - Working order - green cells) at the same time, and avoid annoying browsing?

Open Multiple Workbooks With Variable Names

Aug 17, 2007

I have data spanning many files which are named with the date on which they were created (so there are 31 files for August).
For example:
PL080107, PL080207, PL080307, PL080407...)

I'm trying to compile all of my data into one workbook, and have the macro to append each file to a list. Now I need the macro to either OPEN each file, or ACTIVATE each file so that the rest of the Macro can grab the necessary data.

I say Open or Activate, because I can MANUALLY Open a full month's worth of files if it's easier code. If not, I would like it to open and close each workbook on its own.

I have over 7 month's worth, so opening 31 files 7 times is better than opening over 200 files individually!

Compiling Variable Range From Multiple Workbooks Into 1 Single Worksheet

Aug 1, 2014

I have several workbooks (5) with the same variables (columns- A:Q) but with a changing amount of rows (2:n, not including the headers). Each row corresponds to a date range (usually a week) for a particular person (up to 40 people) plus a few other values.

I would like to have a way of "merging" or "compiling" the 5 "seed" workbooks into 1 "master" worksheet. Where rows 2:n of each of the 5 "seed" workbooks are added to the master without any duplication of the same name-date range combination. Also, the master worksheet should not include the rows which only contain a name and date range but for which all the other variables are zero or missing.

Each "seed" workbook would have a button that sends the data over to the "master" worksheet.

Is this a really difficult project? Feasible for someone with near to zero VBA experience?

I attached 3 files to show you what I mean. The 2 "seed" files are merged into the "master" file. Please note that in the files only 2 names are used, but the "seed" files could contain any combination of 40 some names. Also note that the length of rows which contains data in the "seed" files is variable, although it should not be longer than 16 rows + the header row.

Excel 2007 :: Updating Workbooks Containing Links To Other Files

Sep 12, 2010

I and my organization have many files created using Excel 2003. I have now upgraded to Excel 2007 and soon I discovered a huge problem.

- When opening a file using Excel 2007 that was created with Excel 2003 the links in that file is automatically updated even though I get the edit links dialog and choose not to update.

After searching for a solution on the Internet I realize that this is a problem that exist when Excel opens a file created in an earlier version. Microsoft has no solution.

I need to be in control of which links that are updated and not.

Going back to excel 2003 is not an option. Saving the source files in Excel 2007 is not an option.

Excel 2007 :: Update Connection Strings In Workbooks?

Apr 7, 2012

I have a client with approximately 4-5000 Excel workbook files that all contain the old Jet connection string and these files do not run under Office 2010 without changing to the newer ACE connection string. It is just too much to open each file and change the connection string.

Is there a way to do a mass change - like global search and replace - the connection strings in the files? I have a text editor that is able to do that but I fear it may mess up the file.

Excel 2007 :: Colour In Workbooks Keeps Randomly Changing?

May 9, 2013

So, We are using Excel 2002 & Excel 2007 and for some reason all of the workbooks that we have open decide to randomly change the fill colours of nearly all the cells. The only reason this is an issue is that a lot of my work envolves me sending reports to clients and from a business perspective this does not look professional at all.

To add to this, once the cells have changed colour, the original colour is no longer available to select.

Excel 2007 :: How To Copy A Cell Without Auto-adjustment Of Fix Cell References

Jun 15, 2014

Assume I have a cell M24 with a formula like

=M10 + $H24 - $I24*0.35

As you can see B10 is a fix reference (due to omitted $) which should NOT be auto-adjusted but be kept.

Now I want to copy the formular to lots of cells below cell M24. therefore I mark cell M24 and click copy in context menu.

Then I drag/expand the blinking cell border to lets say the 20 cells below. As I result I expect e.g. in cell M25 a formula like

=M10 + $H25 - $I25*0.35

Unfortunately I got

=M11 + $H25 - $I25*0.35

So the fix reference is adjusted as well.

How can I tell Excel 2007 to NOT auto-adjust fix references in formulas?

Excel 2007 :: Data Connection Between Two Workbooks Locks Source Workbook When Refreshed

Feb 10, 2012


I have 4 workbooks, all of them contain data that is managed by other teams at my company. I need to take all of this data, organize, and concatenate it into one sheet for myself, that I will then reference in other workbooks to various OTHER departments in our company that need the data for certain projects. I have the organization laid out in a lot of very complex formulas so that most of this is automated, and not manual.

I need a solution that can pull data from the 4 workbooks without locking them for use, to allow me to keep my document open all the time, and they can update theirs at their leisure. Everything works fine, until I hit the refresh button. Once this is hit, all of the linked documents are locked and cannot be opened, even in "Read Only" mode. Once I close the master document, the files are free to be opened. I know a workaround for now is that i can not "refresh" the document, but rather close and re open it for changes.

Some steps I have already tried :

1. Create an intermediary file that no one uses, and can be locked all day without a problem. This doesn't work for me since the intermediary file needs to be open to refresh, which locks the original source doc, leaving me in the same place as before.

2.Modify the connection string to display "Mode=Read;" instead of "Mode=Share Deny Read"

3.Create a new connection with "Read" only selected in the Advanced Tab

Excel 2007 :: VBA Code Determine Where To Paste Based Upon 2 Cells In Different Workbooks Being Equal

Feb 24, 2014

Trying to manipulate a macro I recorded to be slightly more dynamic with some VBA code. The macro has saved me a lot of time however each month I have to re-do it due to the date changing and I'm sure there must be an easy way to adapt the below code.

Current Code (it repeats afterwards as there are lots and lots of sheets I need to perform the action on).

Windows("Raw Data.xls").Activate
ActiveWindow.DisplayWorkbookTabs = True
Windows("Volume Tracking.xlsm").Activate
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False

What I'm after is a way to alter the range highlighted based upon matching a cell in "Raw Data.xls' and a cell in "Volume Tracking.xlsm".

The cell A43 in "Raw Data.xls" contains a month (which changes every month); if the month is Jan then I would want the Range to remain as AE33. If it's Feb then I would want the Range to be AF33 (and so on).

In "Volume Tracking.xlsm" I have the months in cells AE4 (Jan), AE5 (Feb) etc.

Is there a way to locate the column in "Volume Tracking.xlsm" on row 4 that contains the value found in A43 in "Raw Data.xls" and then paste what was copied out of "Raw Data.xls" C43 and paste it in to row 33 of the correct column that holds the matching month?

If not could I add code to say if cell A43 in "Raw Data.xls" = Jan then paste to AE33, if Feb then paste to AF33 and so on.........

Excel 2013 :: Calculating Value Based On Multiple References And Dropdowns

Jul 19, 2014

Using Excel 2013.

I have two sheets in a workbook.

Sheet 1 has the following columns on it, with the following possible values.
People (Dropdown with value between 1 and 8)
Modifier 1 (Dropdown with Text 1, Text 2, Text 3)
Modifier 2 (Dropdown with Text 1, Text 2, Text 3)
Modifier 3 (Dropdown with Text 1, Text 2, Text 3)
Modifier 4 (Dropdown with Text 1, Text 2, Text 3)

Sheet 2
Contains a set of values (Distance) that correspond to the value of the People dropdown (ie. People 1 = Distance 5, People 2 = Distance 6 and a table that looks like the following:

Mod 1
Mod 2
Mod 3
Mod 4

Text 1

Text 2

Text 3

What I want to happen is that the Result field value on table one is the result of:

Distance*(Modifier 1 + Modifier 2 + Modifier 3 + Modifier 4)

For example:

On sheet on I select People = 2, Modifier 1 = Text 3, Modifier 2 = Text 1, Modifier 3 = Text 1, Modifier 4 = Text 1 which I want to result in the following formula:

6*(7 + 0 + 0 + 0)

This might be exceedingly simple, but I just cannot wrap my head around how to do it.

Excel 2007 :: GET PIVOT DATA With Variable Parameters

Mar 2, 2012

I have a pivot table that has several row labels and 1 column label. I am trying to create a Ranking table outside of the pivot table because I am using Excel 2007 and can't use the new Rank option in Excel 2010. My difficulty is in being able to rank each subgroup of the row labels.

I have thrown a column for "Target Rank" in the data, just to validate my calculation in the PivotTable worksheet, but it is only correct as long as all Company and Product Name options are selected for a given Sex, Age, and Scen Defn.

My non-dynamic formula is:

=RANK(GETPIVOTDATA("Target",$G$5,"Company","AIG a","Product Name","Elite Index UL a","Sex","F","Age",25,"Class","1-Best NS","Scen Defn","Overfunded A"),$L$8:$L$30).

I have figured out how to make some of the items variable to this degree:

=RANK(GETPIVOTDATA("Target",$G$5,"Company",$I8,"Product Name",$J8,"Sex","F","Age",25,"Class","1-BestNS","Scen Defn",$K8),$L$8:$L$30).

I know can make the $L$8:$L$30 copyable across columns by changing it to L$8:L$30.

My dilemma is several fold.

1. If I filter the Company or Product Name the $30 in the range no longer applies. Is there a way to make the bottom of each grouping dynamic?

2. Is there a way to make the item entry associated with the "Class" column label a variable so I can copy across columns?

3. Similar questions related to the row labels for Sex and Age?

4. Lastly, I can write an expression that would make my Rank columns blank if the Company column was blank, but is there a way to reset the data range to look at the next block? That is, if "Age" changed (was not blank) that would indicate the top of a block of data.

I have tried to think of ways to use INDIRECT and I don't know VBA well enough to do it in a macro.

Excel 2007 :: Split Sheet Into Workbooks Using Workbook Template Based On Data In Column A

Oct 5, 2011

I have a workbook that has a sheet called CustInvData, this sheet contains 4,421 rows of invoice transaction data for 178 customers starting on row 2 (headers on row 1). I need to split the transaction data for each customer out into a workbook template based on the customer name in column A. I need each workbook named by the customer name along with a month and year (example: Bellsouth-0911.xls), this should create 178 unique workbooks. And since we sometimes have to go back and rerun invoices for previous months, I'll need to control the month and year manually in the code.

The parsed data needs to be copied to a pre-formatted invoice template. This template has 2 sheets, Sheet1 is called 'Product Summary', this is a table that uses VLOOKUP functions to read the data in Sheet2 called 'Product Details', this is the sheet the parsed data needs to be copied to for each customer invoice. The 'Product Details' sheet has formatted rows 1 thru 11, row 11 being the header row for the data from CustInvData to be copied. So the parsed data needs to start at row 12.

Last, once the data has been copied into the 'Product Details' sheet, I need the data to be SubTotaled at each change in column J (Product) and use the 'Sum' function to add a Subtotal in column L (Retail Price) for each unique product category.

Example data below, I've simplified it (the actual data array spans from columns A to Y)

Customer NameProduct Retail Price


I'm a bit of a novice with macros, but I know Excel pretty well.
