Excel 2010 :: How To Move Graph Based On Relative Cell Reference
Dec 8, 2011
did in [URL] but my issue is complicated by not knowing what cell I need to move the graph to.
I am using Excel 2010 and I am a realitive novice at writing VBA code.
In My spreadsheet, I have a list of properties and some related cost info. From week to week, the number of properties varies. Some days I will have 6 properties and others I could have 100. Because of this, I need to make all of my references relative to other cells. I am having trouble repositioning the graphs that I have created from the data to be 2 cells below the label I have created for the graph (which is a merged cell covering Columns B:I on a row 3 rows below the last property in the report.
So far, I have:
Dim r1 As Range, r2 As Range, GraphRange As Range
I need to insert a picture on a Excel 2010 worksheet.
The worksheet contains a variable number of columns, and the column width is also variable.
The picture needs to be aligned such that the right edge of the picture is in line with the right side of the last used column.
This is so that when the worksheet is converted to a PDF document the picture (company logo) appears on the top right hand side of the page.
I can find the cell reference for the last column, and I can move the picture around the page. But I'm not sure how to find the position of the last column on the page?
I've got this far:
'copy picture and resize and position Sheets("Output File").Select ActiveSheet.Shapes.Range(Array("Picture 1")).Select Sheets("External data sheet").Select Cells(1, 10).Select ' I can make this be relative to the last column on the WS ActiveSheet.Paste Selection.ShapeRange.Height = 50 Selection.ShapeRange.IncrementLeft 0 'put the picture in a position relative to the cell selected
I have encountered some difficulty in modifying a macro I wrote into what I need. I created a macro that searches a column (Column C) for a cell value of, "stop", and then it copies everything above that cell and pastes it onto another sheet. In the sample data set that I was using, "stop" first occurred in cell C541, so the macro copies C1:C540 and pastes it onto another sheet. The problem is that the macro created an absolute reference to C540. What I desire is for the macro to use the 'Find' function to locate the first occurrence of, "stop", offset one cell above that cell, and then reference the active cell (which was positioned by these last two steps) in the range that should be copied. Basically, I'm hoping to have cells C1 through the active cell copied and then pasted onto another sheet.
Im trying to get a message box to pop up if the result of a count formula is greater than one; ie. in a list of data to warn of repeats of a certain key reference.
Ive never had a drama with putting a message box in before but ive only based it off a constant reference whereas in this case, it will be based on a relative reference; for example, when inputted a value in A2, that has the same value in A1, the count formula in B2 will be 2, so i want a message box to come up. Same goes if the same value was put in A3, and B3 was greater than
I have created a macro in excel 2010 which enable the file to save (extract) data into separate location and name. The vba code for macro is as follows: Question: How can I save this workbook with reference to the value containing in cell B2? (it is named temporary now - as defined in the code)
I have an excel spread sheet and on the last column on the right hand side I have some comment boxes but when I hover over them they pop up to the right of the cell, and then they are off the screen.
Can I alter it to make the comment box pop up to the left side of the cell.
Is it possible to adapt this code to get me the desired results or will it have to be a separate one.
Also i'm not sure if I have the code right because if I run the macro then open a comment box in the (M) column as in the code the comment box is the default size then if I run the macro again once I have the little red tick in the corner of the it changes to what the code says.
I need a macro that can run a serial# 1 t0 10 (or more or less) with A1 being starting point. Here is my illustration data.
Coloumn:A Coloumn:B 1 IrfanAneeza 2 Scooby Dooby Do 3 Dooby Dooby Do 4 Yaba Daba Doo
However, there is a little kicker in it. The range of coloum:B varies all the time i.e. B:B could be 1 to 10, it could be 1 to 3 etc. Thus, macro should list serial#'s based on the coloumn B:B range of data.
When I use the mouse pointer to select a cell I can't use the arrow keys to move to another cell while the pointer is over the cell and I can't edit the cell while the pointer is over the cell. If I move the pointer away from the cell then I can move around and edit as normal therefore I don't think this is a scroll lock issue.
This issue also happens when I select a tab. If I select a tab and then leave the pointer over the tab I selected then I can't use the arrow keys to move around the worksheet or edit a cell; if I move the pointer away from the cell then I can move around and edit as normal.
Excel 2010. When the result of the formula in Col. E is less than zero, I need to move the row to another sheet, and then delete the row.
I modified another poster's script as follows:
Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range) ' Move rows with negative value in E to Flagged Items sheet Dim rng As Range ' Set Target Range Set rng = Target.Parent.Range("E2:E200")
The script works perfectly if a negative value is manually entered into a cell in Col. E, but not when the result of the formula produces a negative number.
I can't find a way to make the Case Is < 0 act on the resultant value rather than the formula.
Is this possible in the script or is there another way to achieve the desired result?
I am migrating a bookkeepping spreadsheet from Quattro v12 (c2001) to Excel 2007 and have hit a stone wall over relative 3-D references.
In this workbook each sheet holds data for one month, and this includes some lagging-12-month calculations -- that is, summing a range on a single cell for the preceding 12 sheets (including this one).
Unexpectedly, this formula: =ISUM('201206:201305'!M6)
gives absolute references, even though I put in no dollar signs after the sheet names. This means it gives the wrong answer when copied to the next sheet to start a new month.
I can find no reference at all to converting the above formula from absolute to relative reference.
I currently have an excel workbook (2010) in which I created a custom ribbon and assigned several different macros to the buttons.
Long story short, I will be saving several variations of this workbook every so often when I get new data.
The problem is that if I change the name of the file (Save as or Rename), the custom ribbon buttons no longer work. When I assigned the macros to the ribbon buttons, the macros were absolutely assigned.
Is it possible to assign relative macros to custom ribbons?
From research I have done, it appears that custom ribbons cannot be created using VBA. Is this still true?
I have recorded macros in the attached file to highlight cells that contain matching initials by using conditional formatting on the first cell and copying it to the remaining cells. The problem is that if rows are inserted above that change the first cell reference then the macro no longer works properly. Is there a way to use a relative cell reference within the macro? The macro buttons are in cells A4 to A13. I have no VB experience and created the macros by recording keystrokes and using tips found in this forum.
This is one of about 25 sheets in one excel file, and I will be receiving about 5 different files a week, so a macro is necessary to save time. I tried to create a macro just by recording, and it was not able to adjust to the variances in the number of lines between the sheets.
I need it to do the following, and more or less in this order: -Delete Column A -Create text and format A1:C1 -Sort rows 2 through the last row based on column C values (from largest to smallest, although its not shown in the picture above) -Create a sum at the bottom -Apply grid lines to all the data
I don't have a problem with the first two, but I cannot figure out how to adjust for the number of rows for sorting, offset 1 cell down to create the sum formula below the data, or how to properly write the macro for the sum formula itself. When I recorded the macro, it used cell references like Range("C5").Select and others which do not adapt to the varying number of rows.
I tried using the offset command in this thread without much luck.
I have a list of University courses listed in Sheet1. Column A contains a unique course code. If there is a problem with a course, a second worksheet (called Anomalies) contains the same unique course code with description of the problem(s).
What I'm trying to do is: in Sheet 1, create a hyperlink to the relative cell in Sheet 2 that shows the course code and description. I've gotten close, but am not sure how I can do this without having to update two formulas. In short, I can't find a way to combine the two formulas.
What I've done is the following: in Sheet 1, column B, created a HYPERLINK formula, thus: =HYPERLINK("#"&CELL("address",INDIRECT(C54)),A54)
Column C contains a formula to lookup the relative position in the Anomalies worksheet, which can be referenced back to the HYPERLINK formula, thus: =("Anomalies!A"&MATCH(A54,Anomalies!A:A,0))
Sheet1 is fairly static, but Sheet2 (Anomalies) is being updated all the time. I could just hide column C and then column B will update based on that, but I'd prefer a cleaner solution.
I've tried joining the two formulas, by replacing the INDIRECT part with the second formula, as per the following: HYPERLINK("#"&CELL("address","Anomalies!A"&MATCH(A54,Anomalies!A:A,0)),A54) but I get an error.
I have a set of data (numbers) I want to include in a bar chart. The numbers appear fine in the table. When I create the chart and sets the data (the cells excel goes looking in to create the chart), the values in the cells are divided by 10 for some reason I can't understand.
I tried to create a new file and a new chart, and the issue does not repeat.
I do not know where to look in that specific file to prevent Excel from dividing every number by 10 when I create a chart.
I have been trying to chart temperature differences over 10 day's time for six cities using a line graph. For some reason, the lines are all clustered at the bottom of my graph, with values of 0. My spreadsheet is accurate, without any blank cells. I'm using Excel 2010.
I have been given a task to create a line graph who has 10 categories and each category has 5 different values. I need to plot a line graph, so that those 10 categories should appear on the Y-axis instead of X-axis.
I am in the process of setting up some graphs. The graphs will show the last 6 months of data so they move as each month is goes. I saw a slick way of doing this using the count function but this did not quite fulfill my needs. What I was looking for is to be able to input the start month in a cell. The cell would be part of the function within the formula. I created a simplified version of the spreadsheet below.
Then I created my names using the ctrl-F3
I then created the graph I wanted and wanted to use the formula =SERIES(Sheet1!$B$3,!chtCat,!chtIssuesReported,1). This kept getting an error indicated nothing really. It basically says there is something wrong with my Series function. I have a working version of a similiar worksheet I have been basing my entries on. They look almost identical but mine is failing. I also created a new file and tried this and it still fails. I can run the formula evaluator within Excel 2010 against the !chtCat and !chtIssuesReported names and they both return the correct value (which equals areas on the spreadsheet). I have also tried to enter the spreadsheet name and a tab in front of the names to get them to work and still get an error. Basicall I am trying to create the graph below (this grpah is using the hard coded locations)
I have been using it to take a picture of a graph, pasting to an alternative sheet within the same workbook, and renaming the picture by a defined name. S by selecting the names from a drop down list the picture will select various different sized graphs defined within my drop down.
What I am experiencing is when I initially do this the pic works great and resizes automatically with each selection, however the next day some of the pictures resize and some do not.
Is this a glitch within excel or am I missing a setting which will resolve this?
Excel 2010 - I need to create a graph that shows a week's use of a sportsground showing what sports were played, on which days and between which times. I thought I could show the times on the vertical axis, days on the horizontal axis and then the sports played in those times, however I'm unsure as to how to get the graph to recognise the times.
I've attached an example of some data and how I'd like to see it, I'm just not sure how I can do this using the chart set up!
I work with a team of users that are continually publishing reports in Word that contain charts and graphs copy and pasted from Excel into Word 2010.
We have a custom script that leverages a PDF engine to automatically convert .doc files to .PDF files that we distribute electronically to our clients. This all works great, but only if all my users select 'paste special' and Enhanced Metafile Format when adding their excel charts into our reports. Most of these people aren't tech savvy, and I'm havin ga hell of a time getting them to follow this workflow and am hoping there's a way in Office 2010 to select the default paste from excel into word when the content is a chart.
It seems like the default paste from excel is an embedded chart/graph that you can then further manipulate each component of the chart in Word; the default doesnt' paste an actual image. I am assuming the pdf renderer is using a lower resolution .PNG version of the image and when these are scaled for print and or pdf, they look like crap.
Is htere anyway I can automatically change the default paste format for the chart from excel into word to be an EMF/EMV (enhanced metafile?) Either thorugh the registry or some other saveable setting?
I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet consisting of many worksheets (20 or so). Each of these worksheets contain detail level data regarding different projects. One of the columns in these worksheets is the 'Status' column (column F). There is conditional formatting on this column where if the text is 'G' then change background to a green color, 'Y'=yellow, 'R'=Red and 'U'=Grey.
The first worksheet is a summary sheet that I would like to pull information from each of the detail worksheet's columns B, D, E, G and H if the status column (Column F) is 'R' or 'Y'.
The number of rows in the detail worksheet can change each week (as few as 0 and as many as 100)
I have a range of cells each containing a name. Based on a number that has to be entered manually I want excel to return the names concatenated in one cell. So for example:
Number of variable entered: 5
q9001 q9002 q9003 q9004 q9005 q9006 etc.
Should give me: "q9001 q9002 q9003 q9004 q9005"
I have been trying to work with formulas using IF and CONCAT functions. But so far I haven't figured out how to have excel return me the correct amount of variables for each separate number that can be entered seeing the number of variables entered can vary from 1 up to 50.
