## Find Value Of Previous Non-Blank Cell?

Sep 25, 2012

I have a row of dates with a variable number of nonblank cells between them. e.g.:

A1 1/9/12
B1 6/9/12
C1
D1 8/9/12
E1
F1
G1 12/9/12

I want to calculate the NETWORKDAYS between dates, but where there is a blank cell, I want to be able to use the date in the previous nonblank cell. For example, NETWORKDAYS(B1,D1), if cell C1 is blank or NETWORKDAYS(D1,G1), if cell F1 is blank.

how to get the value of the previous nonblank cell and nest it inside the NETWORKDAYS formula?

## Calculate The Average Of The Previous 12 Months

Oct 14, 2009

I'm trying to make a formula that will calculate the average of the previous 12months. The goal is to tie the formula to a reference cell that contains a date. Each time the date is changed by a user the calculation will be updated accordingly. Here is the CSE formula that I thought would work:

{=AVERAGE(IF(\$B\$5:\$B\$53=B\$2,OFFSET(\$C\$5,(COUNT(C5:\$C\$53)-1),0,12,1)))}

I've also attached a sample file to illustrate the problem. The 'range' portion (\$C\$5,(COUNT(C5:\$C\$53)-1)[/b]of the Offset function was setup simply to get the 12 months which preceeded the reference date.

## Delete Previous Months Data

Feb 15, 2009

OK essentially this is my problem:

I have a daily spreadsheet, uou update for inputs and outputs each day and the spreadsheet gets to an overperformance figure (sorry if the spreadsheet is a lottle unclear, it is a simplified version)

On the first day of each month, the opening target is adjusted and you start again. The probelm is you dont know what the opening target is until roughly 21st of the month.

I created a macro that deletes the opening target and removes all the previous days before the start of the month.

The way i done this was:

Create a copy of "daily" tab, change b5 to equals c2 and copy and paste special as values. Then in d5-d58 and f5 - f58, vlookup values from old "daily" tab , and then copy and paste special as values. Then delete old "daily" tab and remname daily(2) as "daily"

What i have done is essentially created a new tab on 21st March, looking back to data only as far back as 1st Mar and the new opening bal and target is found. The macro can be used on the 21st of each month.

but...macro doesnt work, i have tried a few times and i think it is because i am vlookuping up data from a tab that i later delete...please help!! - thanks a mil to anybody that can give me a steer in the right direction.

## Adjust Dates - Previous Months

Jul 25, 2006

I have a worksheet that displays totals from a master worksheet. At the bottom of the summary I would like to have the three previous months totals displayed from one column. I know that I can achieve this "quick and dirty" by just using VBA to display what I want, but I wanted to see if there was a better way of achieving this.

I searched and came up with a formula like[code = TEXT(H4,"MMMM"[/code] This will diplay the month name like I want, but there are also three other cells that I need the previous months in. Is there some type of formula that will autmatically change these values once the date in cell H4 changes?

## How To Subtract / Add Days / Months Using Borrow / Carry Forward To Previous Cells

Dec 8, 2013

## Excel Formula To Automatically Select The Previous Months Data For Summary Table

Jan 20, 2014

I need a formula to automatically change the summary column according to the month we are in.

Ie:
Last Months Data
Nov
Dec
Jan
Feb

1
8
1

7
4
7

9
2
9

'Last Months Data' column should show Dec. However, as we move into February and I complete the 'Jan' column, I would like 'Last Months Data' to automatically change to show Jan's data - is this possible?

I was previously told to use the following formula but this would automatically select the current months data and not the previous months data which is what i need - =INDEX(B2:L2,MONTH(TODAY()))

## Count Blank Cells Only If A 1 Is Previous

Feb 19, 2009

getting a formula to do this

I have
......D E
5 )......1
6 )......2
7 )......3
8 )......4
9 )......5
10)......6
11)......7
etc down to 31

They only show up when the cell next to it is not empty.

=IF(ISBLANK(D5),"0",(1))
=IF(ISBLANK(D6),"0",(2))
etc

If nothing is put into say D5 D6 or D7 but something is put in D8 then i would like E8 to become 1 as it is the first to be filled.Then when D9 has something in it, it becomes 2 if D10 has nothing in it it gets left blank but when d11 has something in it e11 becomes 4 counting the blank cell in between.

How can this be done.

## FIND Returns Previous Data

Mar 17, 2009

This code (partial) was written to interrogate a database. Cell "A2" of another tab contains a Part Number to be sought.

Target = Range("A2")
Sheets("Kanban Data").Select
Dim Nrow As Range
Dim N As Integer
On Error Resume Next
With Sheets("Kanban Data")
Set Nrow = .Columns(2).Find(What:=Target, After:=.Cells(3, 2), LookIn:=xlValues, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False)

If the Find expression (as pulled down from the Edit menu) is empty, then inserting a Part Number in A2 and executing the macro finds the correct record and returns the its correct row number (N, as defined afterwards in the code). Then, changing the Part Number in cell A2 and executing a new search returns the SAME row as the previous search, despite Target being equal to the new sought after value.

## Find Previous Non-empty Cell

Mar 28, 2007

I'm trying to use the find() function (or another if it exists) to find a previous non-empty cell.

Basically, the active cell will be ain a column with mostly empty cells, and I need it to move up the column looking for the previous cell that is not blank. I could do it with a loop, but I'd rather not if possible.

## Running Tally Traffic Light System - Find Previous Values Upwards In A Column

Jul 21, 2014

I'm trying to work out to most efficient way of making a quality monitoring system which uses traffic lights to show problem products.

The traffic light system need to obey the following "rules".

Each product is tested once daily When a product fails once it moves to Amber, When a product Fails twice in a row it moves to RedOne pass when a product is in Amber Status, will reset it to green.If a Product is in Red status, it much have 3 consecutive passes to reset to Green.

I have tried to use array formulae to look up a column for previous values in the past for this sort of thing, but with 100000+ rows it runs far too slowly.

Banana Problem?
Product
Result
Traffic Light (0=green, 1=amber, 2=red)

## Previous Value In VBA

Dec 7, 2006

i use a worksheet.change() sub in the vba of the worksheet itself, not a new module.

I want to check that when a certain value is deleted, the user really wants to do this (and attach a routine to this to delete the entire row, shift etc). so far piece of cake, but where the .... can i find the previous value of the cell in case the user decides he made a mistake. the standard VBA sub creates a target as range, but there doesn't seem to be a target.value.previous, or something to that effect, or for that matter something like a worksheet.beforechange() sub

how to find and restore a value which has been deleted in excel in the worksheet using VBA?

## UDF Return Previous Value

Mar 4, 2009

is there a way for a udf to return the cell's original value instead of an error.

ie. the UDF in the cell returned a value from a database. now if i move the database and reopen this sheet, excel will try to recalculate and if it doesn't find the database it will return an error. instead of that i just want excel to return whatever was in the cell, before it had to be recalculated.

## Refer To Previous Sheet

Nov 24, 2009

I've got a workbook that increments in sheets for each new week. I have a cell showing the current week number for that sheet ( lets say cell C1) and any formulas that need to reference data from the previous sheet do in 'indirect' function which basically looks at the current week number ( lets say week 20)in cell C1 and minus's 1 to navigate to the previous week (week 19).

I was wondering if there was a way to reference the previous sheet purely by the order they're in.

So say i have 5 sheets named "1,4,5,8,9" and these represent week numbers so the sheet named '8' in cell C1 would have '8' standanding for the week number but cells that wanted to reference the previous sheet couldn't do the 'indirect' C1-1 as there is no 'week 7'.

The weeks used could vary alot so a formula to reference the directly previous sheet is needed.

ok, thought best if i show you the actual formula

=IF(ISBLANK(C12),"",IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(C12,INDIRECT("'"&(\$AG\$2-1)&"'!\$C:\$AG"),28,FALSE)),G12,SUM(G12,VLOOKUP(C12,INDIRECT("'"&(\$AG\$2-1)&"'!\$C:\$AG"),28,FALSE))))

the '\$A\$G2-1' part is the bit that redirects to the previous sheet based on it's name, what i think i really need is to replace this part with a 'PrevSheet' function but i'm unsure how.

If I erroneously saved over an excel document that is stored on an external drive, is there any way to restore the previous saved document, or am I screwed.

## VBA - Getting Previous And Last DATE From Today

Apr 21, 2014

In Excel VBA, is there a way to get the beginning date and the last date for the previous month from TODAY()?

i.e. If TODAY is Jan 3, 2014, then I would like to have the beginning date as Dec 1, 2013 and the end date as Dec 31, 2013.
i.e. If TODAY is Mar 18, 2012, then I would like to have the beginning date as Feb 1, 2012 and the end date as Feb 29, 2012 (yes 29, not 28).

So basically, I need to have the AI to know the beginning of the year (January 2014 - takes Dec 2013) and if it happens to be February, the 'end date' is either 28th or 29th depending on the year.

## Lookup Previous Day's Data

Jul 16, 2009

I have a report that is run everyday showing a list of orders, on separate tabs based on facility code, that has all kinds of information. I want to be able to take today's file, and have it lookup any comments I posted on the previous day's file.

I've been messing with code all morning and can't get it right. I think my problem is the vlookup part, and I don't think my loop is right either. Here's a little bit of the code i'm trying:

## Reference Previous Sheet

Oct 5, 2005

I've found on this newsgroup a function to get the previous sheet
name

Function PrevSheet()
On Error GoTo EndFunction
Application.Volatile True
PrevSheet = Application.Caller.Worksheet.Previous.Name
Exit Function
EndFunction:
With Application.Caller.Parent.Parent.Worksheets
PrevSheet = .Item(.Count).Name
End With
End Function

when i put =PrevSheet() i get the previous sheets name

What i want to be able to do is use this in place of directly
referencing the sheet name in my code as follows...
=IF(G4-J4<0,G4-J4,G4-J4)+'Week 1'!H4
So i want to be able to replace Week 1 with PrevSheet but i've tried
and falied on this. eg...

=IF(G4-J4<0,G4-J4,G4-J4)+PrevSheet()!H4
Could someone show me the correct syntax for this.

## Next And Previous Navigation Buttons?

Apr 4, 2012

I would like to have a "PREVIOUS" navigation button in a workbook that goes back to the previously activated worksheet, which may or may not be physically the previous worksheet in the workbook. In other words, if I go from Sheet #1, to Sheet #3, to Sheet #5, I'd like to return to Sheet #3 from Sheet #5 (rather then navigating back to Sheet #4).

"Open VB editor and double click 'Thisworkbook' and paste this code in on the right:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetDeactivate(ByVal Sh As Object)
lastsheet = Sh.Name
End Sub

Then right click 'ThisWorkbook' and insert module and paste this code in

Public lastsheet As String
Sub Select_Last()
Sheets(lastsheet).Select
End Sub

Whenever a user changes sheets, the name of the last sheet is now held in the variable 'Lastsheet' so if you assign a shortcut or button to the code then the last used sheet will be selected."

My problem is that when I want to assign the macro, I can't find macro name that looks anything like the above in the drop down list of Macro Names. how to assign the macro to a button?

## Formula- Previous Working Day

Mar 14, 2007

Yesterday (13/03/2007) was the 9th working day of the month (basing a week on Mon – Fri) – today is the 10th working day

Is there any formula, or mix of formula’s I can use to automatically calculate this?
