Finding A Cell In A Variable Location Based On The Contents Of The Cell

May 2, 2012

I am creating a macro to automate data analysis for work, but I've become stuck.

I need to find the coordinate of the first cell in a column with word "reserved" or "extended" contained in the cell, and then assign the row number of that coordinate as a variable to use for moving data around. Basically, I want something like VLOOKUP, but instead of returning a value, I want it to return the coordinate.

Workaround For Public Variable Bug: Creates Different Cell Colors Based Upon The Cell Contents

Oct 15, 2008

I am in the process of reformatting an excel workbook to act as a review tool for different factors in a process. Part of my redesign includes the use of coding that creates different cell colors based upon the cell contents. The new workbooks will be used to handle existing data for this year. I have developed a process macro to open an existing workbook and copy and transfer the original data worksheet into the newly formatted workbook. The data gets transferred to the new worksheet and the resulting workbook is renamed and saved, Heres'' the rub... the newly saved workbook is missing all of the coding for the worksheets... apparently this is a MS bug.

Has anyone figured a workaround for this. One thought I had is to open both( new and old )workbooks and rather than move/copy , i would transfer the data using cell references.

Excel 2013 :: Macro - Paste To Column Cell Location Based On Variable?

Jun 16, 2014

I have data in E6-E67 on Sheet 1. Based on the date in A2 on that sheet, I need to paste to a column in Sheet 2. In excel, I am able to get the cell location through vlookup and get the correct column number/cell reference. When it gets to the paste location, I am stumped on how to format that line of code? Do I need sometime of variable? I tried to use the address/lookup code but it does not work.

I have excel 2013.

Access A Cell's Contents Via A Variable Containing Cell Address??

Mar 16, 2009

How can you access a cell's value via a vb variable that contains the cell's address. I have a vb variable named cellAddress (string) that contains "$A$1" and I want to assign the contents of what cellAddress points to another VB variable - how do i Do this?

e.g. if cellAddress = "$a$1" and A1 contains "xyz", I would like to assigne "xyz" to a new vaiable by referencing just cellAddress??? Also - Can anyone reccomend a good Excel VB book? A book that maybe stresses the VB language rather then a cook-book approach.

Finding Cell Contents Using Names?

Jul 2, 2012

I have a large table of data which I have used the "create name from selection" tool to name according to the top row and left column.

On a separate sheet I want to have another table where the user can choose which data to see.

I have a drop down list which is named and then a column of dates. In the column next to it I want to show the data which is in the cell which corresponds to the selection in the drop down list and the date next to it (named as the top row in the original table).

I have tried to use INDIRECT and VLOOKUP but I can't figure out how to get the contents of a cell to show up.

Circular Reference - Value Of That Variable Changes Depending On The Location Of The Cell

Mar 16, 2009

Excel 2003 > Attached is a small model of what I am trying to accomplish. Cells B2 and B4 contain the same formula a formula that calls a simple function. The function has a variable passed to it and the value of that variable changes depending on the location of the cell. Now, see the function in Module1 it is called CellCalc. If the variable passed = Jim then value = 3. If the variable passed = Jack then value = 8. That is straightforward.

Note also that when Sheet1 is activated, I calculate the cells from left to right and top to bottom that is important. Here is the challenge. If B2 > 1 then I want to add B2 to B4 and set B2 to 1. I can set B4 properly but I cannot reset B2. You can see my 2 attempts that are commented out. Is there some way of accomplishing this or am I simply stuck in a circular reference?

The alternative to this is to write a function that operates externally on these cells. That will work for sure but then the values of the calculations will overwrite the functions in those cells, thereby taking away the dynamic nature of this application.

Return Contents Of 1 Cell Based On Contents Of Another Cell?

Mar 12, 2014

I thought this was a pretty simple formula but I am having difficulty creating it. I am attaching a little test spreadsheet. Sheet 1 is where the data will be entered. The Reimbursed column has a drop down choice of yes or no. The next 2 columns are the cost of registration and the cost of accommodations. On sheet 2 is where I would like the formulas. So in cell A4 I would like a formula that says if B3 on sheet 1 is Yes populate this cell with the contents of Cell C3 only, B4 of sheet 2 would then be B3 if A3 on sheet 3 is Yes and so on with the Not reinbursed if sheet 1 the Reimbursed column is no.

I've sent out a survey asking people to sign up for one of two groups, A or B. I have a table with a long string of responses, with the name in column A, and in columns B or C there is an X that shows whether they have chosen Group A (column B) or Group B (column C)

I am trying to write a bit of code where it would paste the names into a new table with the headers Group A and Group B. Here is what I have pieced together so far:

If Range("B" & i).Value = x Then

Get Contents Of Currently Highlighted Cell Into A Variable And Place It Elsewhere

Feb 27, 2012

How to get the contents of the currently highlighted cell into a variable and how to place it elsewhere. They suggested this....

Sub CurrentCell()
Dim CurrentCellText As String
Dim CurrentCellString As String
CurrentCellString = CStr(ActiveCell.Value)
'.......
'.......
Range("G16").Value = CurrentCellString
End Sub

My question now is - If the cell contains a runnable Dos comand, how do is send it to a Command window. (E.g. netsh interface ip address local static 192.168.0.1.255.255.255.0) (this sets your NIC's ip address).

Automatically Update A Protected Cell Based On Contents Of An Unprotected Cell

Apr 30, 2009

I am trying to find some VBA that will allow protected cells to be updated when a user enters or selects data in other cells.

For example:

Cell 'A1' starts out blank.
Cell 'B1' has a drop down to select specific items.
Cell 'C1' is the date of the order and is a locked cell.
Cell 'D1' is the date of completion and is a locked cell.
The worksheet is protected to prevent direct changes to cells C1 and D1.

If a user enters any information in A1, then C1 displays the current date.
If a user selects 'Complete' from the drop-down list in B1, then D1 displays the current date. Both of these actions are independant of one another. This format is the same for every cell in the 4 columns indicated above. I thought I was able to do this in another spreadsheet I created a year or so ago but I have not been able to figure out what I did and I do not have the spreadsheet to look at.

Replace Cell Contents Based On Matching Data In Another Cell (On Another Sheet)?

Apr 28, 2014

I am working with a spreadsheet that has our user data; User(First) Name, User(Last) name, Computer Name, MAC address, Phone Number, Seating Position and Network Port Number.

I have let this get horribly out of sync, moved computers around, and moved them while the MAC address column was hidden, As a result, I have a bunch of users listed as being at the wrong computer. I have a second spreadsheet I generated that gives me the logged in user for about 2/3 of my computers, with the computer name(Just 2 columns, 'A' and 'B'. I would like to have Excel match the computer name and then overwrite the user name. For example, if the first computer in my correct user list is DELL-99945ty2, and the user name is "Jimbo Jones", I would like it to search the first Excel doc(The one with all of the user data), and replace the user name with "Jimbo Jones". Is this simple and straightforward?

In my main spreadsheet, the user name is in column B and the computer name is in column G, So I want to use the values from Column B in my second document to find its match in Column G of the first spreadsheet, and then replace the data in Column B with Column A in the first spreadsheet.

Setup Dependent Cell Based On Contents Of Independent Cell

Oct 20, 2013

I'm trying to set up a dependent cell (B) based on what is in the independent cell (A)

If A is blank, B should be blank

If A has any value other than X, B should display a set string Y

If A contains X, B should contain a drop down list with a range of choices.

I've tried setting it up as a dependent validation cell and I've tried using OFFSET, but the best I can do is to get three different drop down lists to populate cell B. One with only string Y, one with only a blank, and one with the range of choices. The problem is in the first two cases above, I want the cell to fill automatically with either blank or string Y -- I don't want them to just be drop down options, with the cell displaying the last value that was input.

VBA To Clear Contents / Change Value Of A Cell Based On If Another Cell Has A Value And Continue L To R

Mar 9, 2013

I am relatively new to VBA. I am creating an attendance calendar that tracks employees calling sick, late etc.. It is a point based system. What I am looking for is, a way to clear the point value that was manually entered in a specific cell (I3), if there is a Value manually entered in (CU3). Each column in my worksheet is for a specific date ie; I3 is the cell where I enter the points (1.00) for that employee by calling in sick on 3/1/2013, (Column "I" is for 3/1/2013). After 90 days, this point accumulated by the employee does not count against them, so I need that point entered in (I3) to either = 0 or the cell contents to be cleared if there is a value entered in cell (CU3) which is 91 days after, so my (A3) cell does not add that point acquired on 3/1/2013.

I need this to run in a range (I3:I450) so if any value is entered into (CU3:CU450) it has the same result and continue to for (J3:J450) so if any value is entered into (CV3:CV450) and so on..

Clear Contents Of Cell Based On Comparsion Of Cell Values

Mar 7, 2007

I am a financial administrator & every month I have down load 4 bank accts as CSV, import into xl & code (CACode) the amounts for our accountant. I have VBA that formats, adds headings & formula etc but I have a problem/s. In H col I place CAcode & I use a sumif formula in I col to sum all the amounts with that have the same CAcode. For simplicity sake I copy the sumif down & then sort H col ascendindingly (this is done by VBA). Now I am trying write a macro to clear the contents of the cell in I col

if eg h60 = h59
then I60 clearContents, Select h59
Else select H59
Do until H3 is selected

Psuedocode
Select table (A2:I Xldown)
Sort Table by CAcode (H Col)
Set Range as H3:Xldown
Select Last cell with CAcode (Xldown) in H col
For every cell in Range (H3:Xldown)
Use If/thenIf Last cell = 2nd Last cell (H Col) then
Clear contents of I col (last row)
select 2nd Last cell (H Col)
Else 2nd Last cell (H Col)Next Cell

I have to use Xldown to select range as the range will be variable each month & for each bank acct. I need to clear contents of cell to verify that all the sub-totals of unique CAcodes of the CAcoded amounts = the totals Because I may have up to 120 rows X 3 bank accts I am slowly using vba to do my work.

Sub sort_And_delete_Sumif_amounts()
Dim r As Range
'Select range to sort
Range("A2:I98").Select
'Sort CAcode in H col ascendingly
Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("H2"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlGuess, _
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom, _
DataOption1:=xlSortNormal
'select range for comparisomn of CAcode
Set r = Range("H3", Selection.End(xlDown))................

Cell Value Based On Mouse Location

Jun 25, 2007

Is there a way to have excel track where my mouse is hovering(say if I have it hovering over cell A4) and have it return the value of A4 in a different cell (e.g B7)?

This would occur in real time - that is, as my mouse moved over the spreadsheet, B7 would update in real time.

Note I would also accept someone selecting the cell - hovering (no select) would be ideal but selecting is OK.

Adding Color And A Value To A Cell Based On Contents In Another Cell

Apr 28, 2014

I have values in a number of cells. Next to them, if there was a value, regardless of what the value is, except blank or zero, i would like the cell to turn blue and if possible have a 1 in the cell.

I've used the conditional formatting, however, among the options, 'less than' is the closest to to getting the color right. The issue is that if the cell has nothing in it, it still colors the corresponding cell blue; because it is not less than the already blank cell. If it is blank, I don't want it to color the cell.

Creating Variables Based On Cell Location

Oct 10, 2009

if Row i Column j is activated then a corresponding variable Aij, Bij, Cij or Dij would be created (if not already existing), or cumulated by 1. The problem as I see it - completely generalised - is to create a variable where the variable name itself is formulaic, as well as its value. I know SAS would have no problem with this due to the order in which it parses data steps, but I'm pretty amateur with other programming languages so I don't know if this is blindingly obvious or downright impossible!

Finding Cell Based On Text In Currently Selected Cell?

Interpolation Given A Variable Table Location & Location Of Data Within

Oct 6, 2009

I am trying to develop a spreadsheet that will calculate a cost based on a matrix. I am attaching a sample of the calculation created so far. The end result is in cell M13 and is highlighted in yellow. I kind of layed the formula out in a few different cells, so hopefully it would be easy to follow.

simplify this process with maybe another formula that I might not be aware of, or maybe show me how to get this done in VB code. I think VB code would be the correct way to go just not sure.

Select A Range Based On Active Cell Location?

Oct 27, 2009

I'm trying to select a range of cells whereby the range is dependent on the currently active cell. I know you can use the "Activesheet.Range("A1:D2").select" method to select a range where the cells are always the same, but I'm after a dynamic selection where the values can be programmatically altered depending on some other result.

For example, let's say that I make a certain cell active (based on the result of some other formula), and I want to select the range of cells in the adjacent column that is X rows deep. Putting this into context, imagine the resultant active cell is B2, I then want to select the range C2:C10, but if the active cell is E10, the range selected would be F10:F18 (if active cell is X, then range would be Y:Z).

The Offset function would allow me to position the cell based on the current active one, but it doesn't let me select a range. The Range function only lets you choose either hard coded or index cells, e.g. "Range(cells(y,z), cells(y,z)).select", but this is still no good because I'd need to know the index value of the active cell (can this be done?).

Get A Cell To Look At A Row Based On Contents

Dec 24, 2008

I want to have a cell that looks at another cell based on a number that is in another cell. So imagine if you will: A1 contains the number 25. A2 contains the formula I can't work out. I want it to look at the row that is the number contained in cell A1, so in this case it would look at row 25.

Now I want to narrow it down further to a cell in that row but this will be a constant so lets say column F. So if A1=25 then A2 would display what ever is in F25. If cell A1 were 16 it would display the contents of F16 etc. The best I got was something like =IF(A1=>1,(F(A1))) but obviously that is wrong as it doesn't work.

Step 1 - Find the column named "Date Closed" (it will always be in row 1)

Step 2 - Find the column named "Status" (it will always be in row 1)

Step 3 - If the "Date Closed" column has a date in it, add text to the cell in the "status" column in the same row that says "Closed".

Step 4 - If the "Date Closed" column does NOT have a date in it and is blank, add text to the cell in the "status" column in the same row says "Pending".


NOTE: Cell format in the "Date Closed" column is set this way...
Number tab; Category is "Date", Type is *6/25/2009
