# Excel 2010 :: Creating Multiple / Repeatable Lists Of Random Numbers

May 19, 2014

I am trying to create challenge/response cards. Each card will have a 5-digit number in the upper-left and lower-right corner along with a series of rows containing a line number and 3 pairs of challenge/response words.

Rather than have have copies of these cards, I want the central office to have a macro-enabled workbook wherein they can enter the two numbers from the card and have the challenge/response matrix regenerate on a worksheet.

So, essentially, I want the challenges random number generator seeded from one of the 5-digit numbers and the responses random number generator seeded from the other 5-digit number.

I am trying to use

Code:
Randomize(Seed)
where Seed is one of the 5-digit numbers.

The problem appears to be that, no matter what I use for Seed, the RND(-1) function is not resulting in different numbers.

I am using Excel 2007 and Excel 2010.

## Excel 2010 :: Creating Random Trending Data

Aug 11, 2014

Im looking to create random data for an athlete over about 4 months with daily tests, however when im using the =randbetween(*,*) function the data is too 'Random'. so im looking to create a trend in the data, like real athletes will have. is there a function in Excel 2010 that can do this?

The boundaries of the data are -336,416 (i know its quite a big range)

## Excel 2010 :: Random Numbers In One Function

Jul 22, 2012

I'm currently working on my masters dissertation and am using excel 2010.

Basically, I'm trying to generate a list of say, 1000 numbers within a range. I can already do this using the rand() function. However, I need excel to take each random number, apply it into a formula, and then list the answers in a seperate location. This would be easy to do if there was one simple function (which i could just insert into any adjacent cell). The problem is that each random number value is input into a table. The table, which has about 10 columns and 200+ rows, gives one final answer.

I'm sure there has to be a faster way than creating 1000 tables for each random number generated.

Let's say I have a list of 1000 random numbers in sheet 1. the function table is in sheet 2 and produces the answer in the same sheet, in a single cell. I'd like excel to use each random number generated, input it into the function table, attain the answer from the table, and list it in the cell next to the random number.

## Creating Random Numbers

Jun 2, 2006

Im an using excel to run a simulation of demand over a period of 200 days. i have an average daily demand of 7.75 and a stdev of 2.6. Is there any way to generate random numbers (for daily demand) based on this data?

## Excel 2010 :: Creating Scatter From Multiple Columns Using Ctrl

Jun 12, 2014

I am trying to create a scatterplot from some data I have. I attempt this by selecting multiple columns using Ctrl and clicking on the letters above. This results in it plotting only the first selected column on the Y axis with only 1 2 3... on the X axis.

When I however select multiple columns by clicking on a column and dragging to more columns it does plot as I would expect with the first column as X values and the rest Y values.

I know it is possible to create a graph and add data manually but this is way slower and I think that it should be able to be done differently.

I'm using excel 2010.

## Excel 2010 :: VBA / Creating Multiple Workbooks From A Template And List Of Names?

Aug 20, 2013

The easiest way I can describe the scenario I am trying to create, is to use a company list of personnel (my index) and to generate a time-sheet workbook per person based on a pre-populated template. This time-sheet is saved as the persons name and has the persons name entered into cell D:10

I have a workbook which contains two worksheets;

1) An Index sheet which contains a list of names that I wish to use in Q16 downwards (note the length of this list will vary each time I run this)

2) A "template" sheet which I wish to duplicate in new workbooks

3) A second "data" sheet that I wish to copy across in new workbooks

I need a macro that will take the "template" and "data" sheets and copy it into a new workbook, renaming each new workbook to each name in my Index sheet. I also want that same Name to be copied into cell reference D:10 of the "template" each time.

The end result is that I should have a series of new files generated and saved which are named the same as the Index list, with both the "Template" sheet and the "Data" sheet present, with the cell D:10 pre-populated with the Name provided in the "Template" sheet.

I'm using Excel 2010.

## Creating Drop Down Lists With Same Multiple Items

Apr 6, 2007

Looking to create a drop down list on the top of a column that will find all entries with that numerical value. For example, lets say I have four entries with the value 1234 spread out through the columns. When I click the drop down menu, it should only have 1234 once and when I click it, it shows me all the rows with that entry.

## Excel 2010 :: Count Consecutive Numbers Over Multiple Columns / Rows

May 27, 2014

I'm using Excel 2010 and my spreadsheet contains numbers in columns A:E and approx 500+ rows. Here is a 10 row example of my data:

A B C D E
0 1 2 3 4
5 6 7 8 9
0 2 4 6 8
1 3 5 7 9
1 2 4 5 8
3 4 5 6 9
9 8 1 2 3
7 6 1 4 0
0 8 2 1 9
1 0 5 3 2

I would like to count the number of consecutive times each number appears (to a max of 9 consecutive times in a row). So, from my example above:

Number 1 appears:
1 consecutive time = 1 (appears in row 1)
2 consecutive times = 1 (appears in rows 4 & 5)
3 consecutive times = 0
4 consecutive times = 1 (appears in rows 7, 8, 9 & 10)

Number 2 appears:
1 consecutive time = 4 (appears in row 1, row 3, row 5 & row 7)
2 consecutive times = 1 (appears in rows 9 & 10)
3 consecutive times = 0
4 consecutive times = 0

Number 5 appears:
1 consecutive time = 2 (appears in row 2 & row 10)
2 consecutive times = 0
3 consecutive times = 1 (appears in rows 4, 5 & 6)
4 consecutive times = 0

and so on....

## Excel 2010 :: Creating Multiple Tables In VBA And Referring To Newly Created Tables?

Jul 1, 2013

Using Excel 2010. I'm writing a macro that sets up a workbook to be used for estimating at the beginning of a project. In the code I need to create multiple tables (formerly known as "lists") in the workbook. Then later in the code I need to refer back to those newly created tables. Currently, the code that creates the table is part of a loop that creates the table on many different worksheets. The problem of course, is that I have to name the Table, and then it won't create a table of the same name on the next sheet. Then, later in the code, I need to make adjustments to the table that was just created before looping to the next sheet.

Is there a way to create a table without giving it a constant name? Or by giving it a name that builds off of other info in the sheet? For example, I would be good with the naming the table after the sheet name: "Sheet1_Table" or such.

Code:
Sub Auto_Open()
'
Dim sht As Worksheet
If Range("A1") = 1 Then

[Code].....

## Excel 2010 :: Copy Multiple Numbers From Single Cell To Individual Cells?

Apr 15, 2014

I am using Excel 2010.

I need to get that list of numbers listed out to the right, with one number per cell. The list in column one could possibly contain from 1 to 20 numbers, and the last number is always without the comma after it.

## Creating Relationships Lists From Data Tables Within MS Excel?

Mar 22, 2013

how to do this, but I know it can be done.... I want to use one drop down list created via the Data Validation 'List' Criteria to then lookup data based on the selection made in this list...... this will require a number of reiterations to get to the final result......

So:

Drop Down No:

1. List: Department Function:

2. List: Sub Function List Based on Selection from 1.

3. List: Job Code, Title and Pay Grade based on Selection from step 2

how to ensure that we are able to minimise the overall workbook size due to the complexity that is required here as this is just the basics.... this will need to applicable further once this basic requirement has been fulfilled.

## Excel 2010 :: Generate 6 Digit Unique Random Number For ID Column A

## Excel 2010 :: Create Master List Worksheet From Lists Of Names On Several Worksheets

Jun 6, 2013

I'm using Excel 2010. I have a workbook that has six or seven worksheets in it. Each worksheet has a header row, and then lists of clients at the clinic where I work. The columns are last name, first name, medicaid #, social security #, DOB. We use these lists every month to verify that each client has Medicaid for the month. Therefore, there are also columns with names like April, May, June where we mark yes or no for each client. Some of the worksheets also have information about the clients' guardian, phone number, etc., but not every worksheet has those. (I can't show you the worksheets b/c of federal privacy laws, of course.)

I really, really want a worksheet that's a master list of the data from each of the existing worksheets, and I'd like to keep it synced to the source worksheets. I'd love it if I could also add a column telling me which of the source worksheets the data originally came from.

I've tried a few things to make it happen, but nothing has worked.

I've tried using the Consolidate function built into Excel as well, but that only works with numbers, not text, and it wants to manipulate the numbers instead of just copying them over.

I've found several macros online that should have worked (including one from this site) but that I wasn't able to install to my worksheet. I followed all the steps for installation, and throught it worked, but when I went back to the Excel file to run the macro, the list of available macros remained emptpy.

Is it possible that corporate IT has disabled the ability to install macros? Is there somewhere in Options were I need to go to turn Macros on?

## Excel 2010 :: Formatting Numbers Written In Text To Numeric And Pulling Only Numbers Out

Feb 20, 2013

I am extracting data from a website to excel 2010. my problem is the data contains both text, numbers, and sometimes a combination of both.

e.g. hi im ron for more information you can reach me at 6 five 6 four 5 seven 7 three 2 two..

I need it to look like this 6564577322 or 7 * 0 * 2 * 4 * 5 * 6 * 8 * 6 * 2 * 1...i need to look look the same

How do i first format the numbers written in text into numbers and then show only the numbers in a cell minus the text?

## Excel 2010 :: Creating Bell Curve?

Jul 29, 2014

I want to create a bell curve for my team's annual appraisal. There are 12 people in my team. The scale is 1-5, where normally rating range from 2.9 to 4.0.

## Excel 2010 :: Creating VLookUp Function In VBA

Dec 28, 2011

Im trying to write a code in vba in Excel 2010 that would incorporate the vlookup function in excel.

My Data Looks like this:

List 1Weight 1List 2Weight 2List 3Weight 3List 4Weight 4a2.00%j20.00%a14.00%p2.00%b4.00%k32.00%d2.00%y3.00%
c7.50%e10.00%g14.00%u6.00%d8.00%d15.00%h20.00%h7.00%e9.00%q13.00%y45.00%f8.00%f20.00%r5.00%q5.00%
d9.00%g35.00%n5.00%t10.00%h10.00%r14.00%i4.50%w15.00%b0.18Z0.04S0.04Total100.00%Total100.00%Total100.00%100.00%

Where I have X number of Lists, each composed of two columns. The 1st column has the name of each item in each list, and the 2nd column has the value for that item.

What I'd like to do is create a function that would let me choose two lists, and tell me the amount of items in List X and what their values are in List Y, and then total them. Also, I would like it to work the opposite way, and tell me the amount of items in List Y and what their values are in List X, and then total them.

So for example, If I wanted to look at lists 1 and 2, the function would calculate that for List 1, Items D & E are found in List 2 and have a total value of 25%. For List 2, Items D&E are found in List 1 and have a total value of 17%. For all items not in both lists, it would return values of 0.

The code I came up with so far looks like this:

Function AK_Overlap_Go(x, y)
Dim Temp(1 To 2, 2 To 1)
Dim x As Integer

[Code]...

One of the problems I'm having is that the lists contain a different # of items, and so I think I need to loop the vlookup for each row. However, I'm not sure how to do that and get the cumulative values for each list.

## Excel 2010 :: Creating Bracket For Video Game Tournament

Nov 11, 2013

I'm trying to create a bracket for video game tournaments and I'm having trouble with some of the functionality I want it to have.

Right now, I have cells B7 and B9 that will pull player names from another check in sheet. I have another cell, D8, that I would like to have a drop down list in containing the contents of B7 and B9. Everything I see online says to use Data Validation, but apparently that tool can't make a list using cells that aren't next to each other, so that won't work. How else can I tell excel how to populate this list? It is vital that the cells be apart from each other because the visual formatting is necessary for displaying the bracket on a projector so that the players can see their match assignments.

In addition, I would like to have another drop down menu in another cell with a list of valid bracket sizes (4, 8, 16, 32, etc.), and have the cells of the sheet either be visible or invisible depending on how many max players can enter. In other words, if columns B, D, F, and H correspond to the number of rounds it will take to finish the tournament (3, 2, 1, and 0, respectively), I would like the sheet to display only the cells necessary for the tournament, pull player names into the left most cells needed from another worksheet used for sign ups, and auto populate all of the columns to the right of the column for first round with drop down lists for the players who could have won that match in the previous round.

## Excel 2010 :: Creating Mandatory Field Before Saving A File?

Aug 22, 2013

coding mandatory field in Excel 2010.

End Sub
Sub SaveInvWithNewName()
Dim NewFN As Variant
'Copy Invoice to a new workbook

[code].....

I have found a code for mandatory cell, but it creates a second macro and i was not able to link the two.The mandatory field has drop down of employee's and it is located in the cells D78:E78.

## Generate Random Numbers In Random Cells

Sep 18, 2009

I am working on a Random Cycle Count Generator that provides random SKU#s based on 3 separate columns of SKU listings. The user clicks a button to generate the SKU#s to cycle count for that day. What I would like to see is a date stamp in the columns next(B,D,F) to the referenced SKU listing(A,C,E) based on which SKU#s are generated. This will let me see the last date that the SKU was generated. I would also like it to automatically save after generating.

## Excel 2011 :: Multiple Dependent Dropdown Lists

Feb 26, 2013

I am working on a spreadsheet for my Building company. I'm building a tool to price for Fascia, Soffits and Cladding.

I'm using Macbook Pro Microsoft Office for Mac 2011

The first sheet holds all the lists of products, Category Headings list is in column A and then all the relevant products and prices are then from B to BI. I have defined each category with a name by selecting the cells and entering a name in the name box.

The second sheet is a Calculator in which I would like a to have a drop down list in the Category Column (Which I have worked out how to do myself - good old google) and then a drop down list in the second column which lets the user select from a list of results based on the selection from the previous column.

Example:
Category(B3) - 18mm Fascia/Replacement Board (Square White) - Drop down menu taken from sheet 1 A3:A33
Description (C3) - Drop down list containing all the options from D2:D15 Named "FasciaReplacementBoard18mmWhite"

So basically, whatever the user selects in Column B (from the category list) a drop down list would be available in Column C

The Value column would then show a value based on the options selected.

## Excel 2007 :: Multiple Dependent Lists Based On Selection In 1st Column?

Jun 1, 2011

What I am looking to do is this... (using Excel 2007)

I need to have more dependent lists based on the selection in Column A. (My column B is already set up and works perfectly using INDIRECT)

For example:
Column F would be a dependent list of colors based on the sales rep chosen in Column A
Column I would be a dependent list of managers based on the sales rep chosen in Column A
Column M would be a dependent list of part numbers based on the rep chosen in column A

without using VBA? (If I HAD to - okay, the other person maintaining the sheet would be lost....) I haven't been able to find anything close to what I want to do online - maybe I am just not using the correct terms.
