# Formula Needed Based On 2 Conditions And Variable Row Reference

Jan 9, 2014

I am an architect and recently I was required to do some extensive calculation relating to water requirements and toilet requirements for a building that i was designing. i created a excel file, with a basic vlookup function to put certain values in the cells that are pre-defined for a particular building typology (mostly created by governmental bodies as guidelines). for example, when i choose a particular type in column E, column F and G fills up automatically. now this table also gives me occupant load based on what is the area i enter in column D.

The problem is that I want to automate the calculation of toilet requirements. Now, each typology will have a different formula to calculate WC/Urinal/washbasin.

1. there will be 17 different formula - one for each typology (as shown in sheet 5)
2. Column j will calculate what is the number of WC required based on 2 criteria - first id what is the typology and then looking what is the number of occupant.

The problem here is for example, if in E9, selected typology as "offices", the formula of offices typology will be used in J9 and occupant value from H9 will be used but if i have E18 also selected as offices typology, the same formula will use occupant value mentioned in H18 instead of using H9.

Hence, excel will first have to look what is the typology selected. based on that, it will load formula - out of that 17 different formula - specific to that typology and finally it will refer to corresponding row for occupant load and will use it in the formula to get the result.

## Formulas Needed To Display Value If Two Conditions Apply

Sep 16, 2008

I need two formulas for my workbook. This is what the formula for Cell B6 needs to accomplish: I need Cell B6 to display what I have entered in Cell A6 but only if Cell A1 is greater than 1. This is what the formula for Cell C6 needs to accomplish: I need Cell C6 to display what I have entered in Cell A6 but only if Cell A1 is greater than 2.

## Sum Based On Multiple Conditions & Variable Range

May 30, 2008

I have a rolling calendar worksheet that I need to create a formula to auto populate the sum of 8 weeks out, 4 and 8 weeks back based on any work week date I may plug in. So on the "summary page" based on a work week date, I need 8 weeks out, 4 and 8 weeks back projections to be auto summed for 10 different part numbers. The "13 week rolling" page will continue to be updated so that everyweek another week is added and the last week will fall off. (this part can be done manually if no function can delete the oldest column) When the weeks are added it must include the workweek in question. i.e. ww25 = (8weeks out) ww25:ww32 / (4weeks back) ww25:ww22 / (8weeks back) ww25:ww18. see example workbook attached.
This has been driving me nuts for a few weeks now.

## Extract Data To Another Sheet Based On Variable Conditions?

Mar 24, 2014

I have some problem with the extraction, I would like to extract the data to another sheet based on variable conditions but I can not do it. My code in just case working if the all conditions are specified. The target is that if want the code could extract the data based on one condition even, or two or three or more.

## How To Change Absolute Cell Reference Based On A Couple Of Conditions

Apr 28, 2014

I have a workbook that contains a column, G, which includes a formula that calculates distances (based on lat, long coordinates) to a training site ("TS" going forward) from other sites within the same district as that TS. There are numerous TS's in the company, usually 1 per district (but some districts do not have a training site), and I am trying to find a way to change my distance formula that will automatically detect which site is a TS, and then calculate the distances of those other sites in that same district to their respective TS's.

As it stands, I have to manually change an absolute cell reference every time I encounter one of these TS locations in the file (designated by a "TS" in Col F), and rerun the distance formula down the column. I would hate to have to do this several hundred times.

Attached is a sample file. Again, Col G contains the formula for distance calculation, and you will notice that the absolute cell references change each time a TS is encountered -- I have been doing this manually. Additionally, I would be curious to know if there is a way to spot any Districts that lack a TS, as in District 493, and specify that in Col G.

## Using Variable As Cell Reference In Formula

Jul 15, 2014

I'm trying to use a variable as a cell reference in a formula using '&', but can't seem to get it to work. I've looked through the forum, which have examples of how to do this using a range, but not just as a single cell reference. This puts the formula '=VLOOKUP("A & lastrow &"" , Vlookupinput, 2,0)", which obviously gives me an error.

My code is:

Code:
Dim lastrow As String
lastrow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1

ActiveSheet.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 1).Select
ActiveCell.Formula = "=VLOOKUP("A & lastrow &"" , Vlookupinput, 2,0)"

## VBA Macro Needed For Auto Fill Using Another Cell Reference

Apr 28, 2009

Is there anyone who can suggest a solution to my problem below ?
Basically, what I need is a macro which would ideally work like this:

if D32 = 1, then the background colour of D4 should be red
if D32 = 2, then the background colour of D4 should be orange
if D32 = 3, then the background colour of D4 should be yellow
if D32 = 4, then the background colour of D4 should be green

And then I plan to use it for columns E, F, G

## Variable Cell Reference Based On Minimum Difference

Feb 12, 2010

I have a monitoring system that records a data point with a date/time stamp several times a day at random intervals. For each reading I want to calculate the change compared to the first reading that was more than 24 hours ago, which could be anywhere from 1 to 20 rows above the current one. Hence with the timestamp in col A and the value in col B, the formula in col C, for example cell C20, needs to read something like =B20-Bxyz, where xyz is the row number of the first reading that is more than 24 hours, i.e the first row xyz where A20-Axyz >1.

## Formula To Reference A Specific Variable Cell

Jan 13, 2009

Not been around for some time now but have to do my annual update for this workbook and implement some new changes.

In the attached example workbook, I have created some formulas which reference a particular cell for each client e.g.

## Variable Cell Reference In INDIRECT Formula

Sep 28, 2006

I want to create a formula of the form: =INDIRECT(ADDRESS(4,2,2,TRUE,(\$A9) and insert this in a cell BUT the \$A9 reference needs to reference the row of the cell where the formula is being inserted which will vary. ie. A30, A31, etc. How do I do this?

## Copy Relative Formula & Use Row Reference From Variable

Mar 5, 2008

I have the following code which Clears the content of a cell. The next thing I want to have happen is to have another cell equal a formula but make that formula relative to its place. The formula is the following =IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(F56,Routes_All,2,0)),0,VLOOKUP(F56,Routes_All,2,0))

I am not sure how to paste it where the row changes depending on where it is pasted. Here is the code that does not work...

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Worksheets("2008 Log").Select
Dim cRow
cRow = ActiveCell.Row '

Cells(cRow, Range("Column_Type_Of_Ride").Column).ClearContents

Cells(cRow, Range("column_duration").Column).value = "=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(F56,Routes_All,2,0)),0,VLOOKUP(F56,Routes_All,2,0))"
End Sub

As you can see, no matter where I paste it it will always refer to row "F". How can I have it refer to row "cRow"?

## Variable Cell Row Reference In Formula/Function

May 17, 2008

I will show with an example of what I would like to do. I italized and underscored the part of the formula.

---A----B
1 24 formulaB

formulaB = "= CELL("contents",DifferentSheet!G(A1))"

I want B1 to contain the value from the cell G24 in sheet "DifferentSheet". I want to use the value in A1 to determine what row on "DifferentSheet" I should use.

## Variable Reference In GetPivotData Function/Formula

May 28, 2008

I am trying to do a "getpivotdata" formula on a cell in certain file that gets info from a pivot table on another file. However the name of the second file (the one where the pivot table is found on) might be different each time so I created a variable for the second file name but I can’t figure out a way to use this variable in the get pivot data formula as I am not very experience with VBA.

Template = Application.InputBox("What is the name of the file ending with (.xls)")
If Template = False Then
cont1 = MsgBox("Please write the name correctly using (.xls)!", vbOKOnly)
If cont1 = vbOK Then
Exit Sub
End If
End If

## Auto Generate A Comment Box Based On A Cell Value That Has Variable Reference Cells

Jan 30, 2010

I have been given the following code and it works great. I now need to adapt it to the following scenario: In the attached sheet, the user has to select either, "Suburban" or "Squad" in row 5. If the user selects, "Suburban" I need this script to compare the values they enter in a given row to the value in column "B".
If the user selects, "Squad" I need this script to compare the values they enter in a given row to the value in column "C".

Look at row 48, for example. If the user enters, "Suburban" in cell D5 then the value they enter in cell D48 should equal "1". If it does not equal "1" then it should proceed with the adding of a comment. Conversely, if the user enters, "Squad" in cell D5 then the value the enter in cell D48 should equal "2". If it does not equal "2" then it should proceed with the adding of a comment.

## Finding Next Value Based On Conditions In Formula?

Jan 6, 2014

Current simplified situation:

Department A
Employee_1
Employee_2
Employee_3
(empty cell)
Department B
Employee_4
Employee_5
Department C
Employee_6
Employee_7
Employee_8
Employee_9
Employee_10

With the VLOOKUP function, I have looked up the row numbers of the departments. Subsequently, I'd like to find the last employee of that department, based on the department's name and/or the department's row number.

A department-typed cell is non-empty and never contains an underscore. An employee-typed cell is non-empty and it always contains an underscore.

The simple and non-sufficing formula is the VLOOKUP of the row number of next department minus one. But with adding, moving and subtracting departments rapidly, this is not an option.

## FORMULA TO ADD AMOUNT BASED ON TWO Or MORE CONDITIONS

May 17, 2009

i need a formula to add amount based on two or more conditons. From the drop down list on each change i want to do the sum to be displayed in C18; see the attached file for reference. i can do the same thing using pivot tables but i want to the same to be done using the array formulas. Also tell me any other array formulas like this which are useful.

## Sumif Formula Based On Two Conditions

Mar 7, 2012

I am trying to write a Sumif formula based on two conditions. I want to sum the data in column AK if the data in column D = BUD12 and the data in column E = US Custom. I have written the following formula but am getting a #VALUE error.

=SUM(IF(\$D\$25:\$D\$700="BUD12",IF(\$E\$25:\$E\$700="US Custom",\$AK\$25:\$AK\$700,0),0))

## Mega Formula To Calculate Results Based On Several Conditions

Aug 25, 2009

I have in column A a list of investment fund names. In columns B to D is respectively for each fund its Market Value, the Rate of Return and the Rank (1, 2, 3 or 4). I am trying to create a formula that will calculate the market value-weighted rate of return for each ranking.

For example, the 3 funds that rank first have market value weights of 10%, 12% and 13%, and rates of return of 1%, -3% and 5%. The total market-value weighted return for the top-ranked funds would therefore be 0.39% (i.e. 0.10*0.01-0.12*0.03+0.13*0.05)

The formula would first need to look in the ranking column to identify those funds with a particular rank (column D), then calculate their weights by dividing their market value by the total market value of all funds (column B), and finally multiplying these weights by the rate of return (column C), before summing the results to say, for example, that the total market-value weighted return for the top-ranked funds is 0.39%

## Use SumIF Formula To Add Sales Forecast Based On Three Conditions

Apr 4, 2014

I am trying to use sumif formula to add sales forecast based on three conditions but i also want to add the revenue for current month which i have but for the next one months as well as two months plus.. this will change based on the current month.. below is what I am using for the current month..

=IF(\$B\$3=Reference_Data!E2,SUMIFS(Current!\$K:\$K,Current!\$G:\$G,"Yes",Current!\$C:\$C,\$B\$1,Current!\$E:\$E,\$B\$3),
IF(\$B\$3=Reference_Data!E3,SUMIFS(Current!\$K:\$K,Current!\$G:\$G,"Yes",Current!\$C:\$C,\$B\$1,Current!\$E:\$E,\$B\$3),
IF(\$B\$3=Reference_Data!E4,SUMIFS(Current!\$K:\$K,Current!\$G:\$G,"Yes",Current!\$C:\$C,\$B\$1,Current!\$E:\$E,\$B\$3),

## Return Formula Value/Text Based On Many Cell Conditions

Oct 16, 2006

This is to manage which departments (approxiamately 30) within a business need which compulsary training (approximately 11 courses)

Spreadsheet currently reads list of new employees and I want to be able to have "YES" or "No" values under the different courses

Is there a formula/function that i can use (like the IF Formula) to complete the following information;

EG: =IF(OR(A3=H2, A3=H5 etc... ), "YES", "NO"

Column H lists all departments

Column A lists deaprtments

A3 representing the 1st Department needing training

## Change Formula Cell Reference Based On Another Cell Reference

Jan 8, 2012

How do I change a formula cell reference based on another cell's reference? I'm building a schedule that looks to a task's trigger and adds days based on that relationship. All entries in column "A" will be text and all cells in "B" will be the simple formula "=A2" or "=A3". Due date is calculated by adding the value in "C" to the preceding date in column "D". In the spreadsheet below, the trigger for "Budget set" is "Specs written" with 3 days added to the previous due date.

________A________________B_____________C_________D
2 Design begins__Proj OK______________10____10-Jan
3 Specs written__Design begins (A2)____5____15-Jan (D2+C3)
4 Budget set_____Specs written (A3)____3____18-Jan (D3+C4)

If the trigger for A4, "Budget set", changed from A3 to A2, is there a way that the formula that determines the due date in D4 could read the trigger cell reference in B4 so that the value in the corresponding row in column "C" is added in the date column?

## Formula Needed That Changes According To A Specific Day

Oct 12, 2008

I'm trying to make a spreadsheet for work so when im not there they can just enter the day for example sunday and what they have and then it will show them what they need to prep

## Formula To Sum If 2 Different Factors Are Needed

Apr 9, 2014

I have a big list with names, money spent and date. I need somehow with a formula to do:

Take all the money spent on some specific day from a specific person an put it into a field.. and this for every date of the week and for everyname... Im gonna upload a photo.

I need the list of the left to produce me list of the right somehow, at least just the sum of everything spent everyday.

## Specialized Average Formula Needed

Jan 14, 2009

In order to avoid embedding 12 if statements, I want to take an average of a selection of cells based on what month it is. So I have a "now" function, and then a month function referencing the "now" cell so that I get the current month as a number 1 through 12. I have a row of expenses (C14:N14) and I just want the average from January up to the current month. The reason I can't take an average of the entire selection is because the users don't want to have to enter a 0 everytime there's nothing, they'd like to leave it blank, so the sheet needs to recognize what month we're up to. And the average function in Excel only takes an average of the data that is present, not the entire range. For example, if the data in the first cell was 15, second cell was 15, and third cell was blank, the average function returns 15 and not 10. So what I need is, for example, if it's March, the average will calculate =average(C14:E14) and so on. Any ideas? Maybe it's a simple change of formula instead.

## Formula For Cell Value Based On Reference Or Position

Jun 23, 2009

HTML Imagine the following table (Ax, etc is the cell position):

A1=John C1=Name D1=Date E1=Version F1=IP
A2=10/2/2008 C2=A1 D2=A2 .... ....
A3=Client version 7.01 C3=A1+5pos D3=A2+5pos
A4=172.24.3.5 C4=A1+10pos D4=A2+10pos

A6=Michael
A7=10/2/2009
A8=Client version 7.03
A9=172.24.3.80

A11=Susan
A12=2/2/2007
A13=Client version 7.02
A14=172.24.3.200

I have a table of data on the left side and I want to re-organize just like the right side. Let's take C2 as an example, the value for that cell = A1;
Now, C3 in the other hand, the value for that cell = A1 + 5 positions down;
C4 = A1 + 10 positions down;. The same type of formula applies for the remaining columns on the right. This seems like an easy solution, but it's not easy when you don't know it... :

## Formula Needed That Identifies Last Time Product Run

Jan 21, 2014

Basically I have in the first column, different products (lets call them a, b,c and d). in the second column is a counter which starts at 1 and continues counting down the column.

In the third column I need to identify if it is the last time the product has been run. i.e there are no more duplicates of product a further down the 1st column.

I have attached an example : example.xlsmâ€Ž

## Update Formula Needed For Multiple Workbooks

Feb 5, 2012

I'm in need of some VBA code to control the updating of information from 16 active workbooks to a master workbook and vise versa. I would like it on command as it slows down the use of the workbooks when they calculate after every change of data as they are being used. These workbooks are connected over a company intranet and are used 24/7.

The desire is that cells in the master workbook will read specific cells on each of the other workbooks and complete a "map display" of the data. The data is not in a column or row range side by side but scattered across the sheet to form a map when data is entered.

I've tried using code to open and close the workbook with on time events but that hasn't worked.

## Formula Needed To Separate Names From Numbers

Sep 21, 2012

I have a phone list set up as LastName, FirstName PhNum all in a single column. The problem is, some last names have a space, some phone numbers are in the xxx-xxx-xxxx format while others are just an extension like xxxxx.

Example:
Smith, John 519-123-4567
Van Smit, Joe 12345

What can I use in a formula to extract the numbers so that I can end up with 2 columns, one with names, the other with numbers.

## Formula Needed For Calculating Profit On Sales

Dec 14, 2012

In my spreadsheet, I have data for each sale in each row. Column C is the buy price, and column D is the sell price. I need column C to be subtracted from column D to get the profit into column E so that I can AutoSUM any cells in column E for total profit over any time period. The problem I'm having is that in columns C and D, I have either a dollar sign in front, or the letter m following without a space (ie \$45.00 or 150m). Many cells in column C also contain another word following the buy price, and many cells in column D have a date following the sell price (ie \$32.00 12/11 or 42m buyout).

Examples of how my spreadsheet looks:
A1: 12/13/12 B1: Item #1 C1: 100m D1: 152m
A2: 12/14/12 B2: Item #2 C2: \$20.00 D2: \$35.00
A3: 12/15/12 B3: Item #3 C3: 90m bid D3: 120m 12/16

So looking at my example above, I would need cell E1 to automatically show "52m", cell E2 "\$15.00", and cell E3 "30m"

How I can get a formula for all of column E that will give me my profit for both \$ and "m" for each item (row). I have tried the SUM function but just keep getting the #VALUE! error, it does not ignore the text like many people say it should.

## Formula Needed To Count Cells With Data

Jul 12, 2007

formula to calculate how many cells in a column contain data of any kind. The data might be a number, a word, or even a symbol, such as "):>:)" for example. The range will change from time to time. For example, one day it might be a2:a4956. A few days from now I might delete a few rows from the top, such as rows 2 through 26, so then the range would be a2:a4931. Then I might add rows at the bottom with data that I need to be counted. I dont want to have to change the formula evertime I add or delete rows with data. I do not want the formula to count a blank space created by the space bar as "data." One formula I used sorta worked, but if the cell appeared empty, but had been cleard out by pressing the space bar instead of the delete key, the formula counted it as a cell with data.
