# Formula To Pick Last Value In A Column

Mar 23, 2009

Is there a formula or function that allows me to always select the lowest (not min) actual lowest in a column? For example, I have a formula in A1 and I need it part of it to always reference the bottom of a certain range (i.e. A5.A200).

So one day the lowest would be A7 but a week later it could be A8. I don't want to have to keep changing the formula in A1 to find the lowest value. I will be adding data on a regular basis.

## Pick The Number Farthest Down In A Column

Mar 17, 2009

The attachment shows a ledger that I am trying to build. My goal is to automatically add the Ledger balance(G) at the end of each day to the Investment cash balance(J) column. Some days there are multiple Ledger transactions, other days there are none. If there were no Ledger transactions on that day I would like to use the last recorded Investment cash balance. (ex. on weekends there will be no transactions)

Note: I want exactly one balance, the ending daily balance, per day on the investment side of the worksheet.

I have struggled with this all afternoon. My goal is to make this as simplistic as possible for two reasons. 1) I am not a master programmer by any means. 2) I want this file to open on any computer the has a MSExcel on it without have to install any addins.

For these reasons I am thinking it would be best to stay away from macros, which I am minimally proficient at creating.

Let me know if you have any good tricks to solve my problem. If macros are the ONLY or absolutely the BEST way to do this, then I guess you can twist my arm an we can go down that avenue.

## Pick Combobox Column To Display (ID Vs Name) Via VBA

Jul 2, 2013

I have some vba code that opens up notepad and populates it with data from Access 2010. Everything works great including the notepad function, the database, and how the data is stored and displayed in the table/form.

The problem: I want to display the service name not the ID in notepad

I passed the field that I want to include in notepad as a string. However, it returns the ID and not the name of the person.

I don't want to change anything in the form or field property because it works perfect as is.

Is there a way to pick which column to display in the Email by vba code?

Column 0 = the ID and Column 1 = the name

Code:
Me.fieldName.Column(1)
^^That doesn't work for me

Here's my code (it works)

Code:
Private Sub cmdNoteAccept_Click()
Dim strCode As String

strCode = strCode & Me.Servicer & ": "
strCode = strCode & Format(Me.DateCreated, "MM/DD/YYYY")

strCode = strCode & "Insert message here"

SendKeys strCode, True
End Sub

## Pick Up A Specific Number From Column

Jun 9, 2007

I have two columns in excel. Column “A” where I have different group names column "B" all the different numbers and column “C” where I have ranked based on column “A”. I need a formula that would pick a number that is ranked 51 with specific group. Currently I’m using below formula (where MC1 represents one of the groups)that is working great unless there is no tie, however if there is a tie for rank 51 and let say two numbers are 22 and 22 the formula will return 44.

SUMPRODUCT(--(Terr!\$Q\$16:\$Q\$518=MC1),--(Terr!\$AC\$16:\$AC\$518=Main!C69+1),Terr!\$Z\$16:\$Z\$518)

## Formula To Pick Out 5 Lowest Numbers

Aug 9, 2007

## Make Formula Pick Up Filename From A Different Cell...

Feb 9, 2010

I have a formula that looks like this : ='G:STOCKS[1001 Stock.xls]Matl%'!\$I\$32

There are hundreds of similar formulas, all referencing different cells in the same file. The “1001” bit refers to the date, and next month it will need to say “1002” to pick up the new month's file. I would like to hold the “1002” bit in a cell (say A1), so that at month end, I just change that one cell, and all the formulas will point to the new file, but I’m not sure how to work that into the formula.

## Formula To Pick Up Negative And Or Positive Numbers?

Jul 17, 2013

I have the following formula
=IF(VLOOKUP(F89,'2013 susp 2714035 Reissues'!F:F,1,FALSE)=F89,"yes",FALSE)

That is supposed to look at the tab 2714035 Reissues and find the same dollar amount. The issue Iam having is the dollar amount can be a negative or a positive amount but the formula is only picking up the number if it matches exactly negative to negative or positive to positive. formula to pick up the matching number if its a negative or a positive.

## Compare Multiple Rows And Pick Largest Value From A Column

Dec 10, 2013

See data in the attached image in Col A thru Col D. In Col E, I want to populate the max value for the same part # from Col C or Col D depending upon value in Col B.

I have included a sample of the expected results in Col E for illustration purposes.

For example Row 3,5,6 are all part # 1 with Col B ="Y", suggesting they are interchangeable parts, therefore, I would like the formula to have ability to pick 10 (since its largest between 3,10,0) from Col C.

## Formula To Pick Out Text In Middle Of String And Return

Jan 20, 2014

I am looking for a formula to remove the text 2.2 from the string Rav4 2.2 D-4d X or 1.33 out of Yaris 1.33 Vvt etc, I have tried using the formula

=IF(P2="","",VLOOKUP("*"&P2&"*",AM\$1:AN\$25,2,1))

But it just keeps returning #N/A. I have all the variables outlined in cells AM\$1:AN\$25 hence the reference. I currently have the formula

=IF(P2="","",VLOOKUP(P2&"*",AK\$1:AL\$25,2,1))

Which is working perfectly @ finding and returning the start of the string but just cannot get the one to find the middle characters.

## Question With Writing A Formula That Can Pick Out Words With 3 Letters

Jan 8, 2009

I have a question with picking out certain word in the column. I am trying to write a formula that would allow me to pick out names that has first 3 alphabetical letters from the columns. The column has a lot of different names, but the one that I would want my automation to pick out is similar to this, C, AR, AA-103, BG-2056, HJE-1100, etc. However, in the same column, I have other words like elevtar, hsvte, lvnrm, etc. that I do not want my formula to pick out.

## Pick Data From A Specific Row/column (eg 10/B) Related To Active Cell

Dec 2, 2009

I have a spreadsheet with my Periods along row 10. e.g. C10: "1", D10: "2", E10 "3", F10: "4", G10: "5" etc. (green on the attached sheet). I have my departments along column B, e.g. B11: "Baked" B12: "Fresh" B13: "Frozen" (yellow on the attached sheet)

what I need and cannot work out is some VBA code that will populate two variables (lets call them Period & Department) when I click on one of the figures. For example if I click on cell: if I click E14: Period would have the contents of cell E10, and Department the contents of cell B14.

if i click G14: Period would have the contents of G10, and Department the contents of cell B14 again. I know how to get the click on the cell to work properly etc, and I have code to slot these variables into that works very nicely, I just can't get this bit to work!!!!

## Date/Time Formula: Pick Up A Date With Time Entry On A Worksheet And Place It Into A TextBox On A UserForm

Jun 17, 2006

I am attempting to pick up a date with time entry on a worksheet and place it into a TextBox on a UserForm. Format on the sheet is mm/dd/yyyy h:mm AM/PM. The UserForm is placing the value as mm/dd/yyyy 12:00 AM. here is the

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
If Not Range("dDate").Value = "" Then
TextBox2.Value = Range("dDate").Value
TextBox2.Text = Format(DateValue(TextBox2.Text), "mm/dd/yy h:mm AM/PM")
Else
TextBox2.Value = ""
TextBox2.SetFocus
End If
End Sub

"dDate" is the named range where the date is sitting. The format is also set on the TextBox2 exit event. Can anyone see why only the date portion is being transfered with the default 12:00 AM for no time component of the value?

## Pick From List

Jul 17, 2007

I am managing a group of sales reps and when they sell a product they receive commissions I am trying to develop something in excel that in cell B5 there will be a drop down that they can choose one of three products (call them A,B,C) then in C5 another drop down will be there w/ two options (new, refurb), then the result will be in D5 depending on the selections. The parameters would be:

Product A new = \$10
B new = \$20
C new = \$30
A refurb = \$5
b refurb = \$15
C refurb = \$25

So if the rep dropped down in cell B5 Product B then dropped down in cell C5 Refurb, the result would appear in D5 and would equal \$15.

## Pick Value From By Count Criteria?

Apr 3, 2014

At the moment I have a problem as per example attached, that I need to select values from row and populate respective column based on the following.

1. A top row contains non-negative values

2. Rows below it contain blanks, negative values and positive value.

3. Last column to be populated with a value from the top row if the value in the rows below top row contains the last negative value before the first positive value. There could be blanks between the last negative and the first positive, but I want the last negative to be used as a criteria for selection of corresponding value from top row. I hope my question is clear with the attached example. The column to be populated is FY.

## Trying To Pick Result From A Table

Apr 7, 2014

In short in the attached which is just 5 results (the full workbook has a couple of data tables and if/or's etc., I've stripped all of the workings out for ease) from one of the sims in the workbook, it shows how far each of the 8 teams listed will get.

Basically in the top table (results which I have highlighted green), I am just trying to return the values in column J (highlighted yellow) which I have just inputted in the attached. Basically I then intend to use them as a results cell for a data table (for each team). As you can see from looking at the 5 sets of results in the case of St.Louis Blues it would return, STANLEY, DIVISIONAL, SEMI, WIN, WIN.

I wasn't sure quite how to do this. I thought I could possibly do this with an index and a match (but wasn't quite sure how to express the function).

## Color-pick Eye Dropper

Feb 2, 2010

I am trying to create a front-page, control-panel style user form that among other things would enable the user to recolor certain aspects of the entire workbook based upon an eye-dropper tool that would pick any color from anywhere on screen (inside or outside of excel).
Ideally, I would like it to be a simple button, click on color, and then have a square next to the selection panel that would display this color. So an add-in would be the most viable solution, however, any form of coding that works is good enough for me.

I am currently at the stage of being able to enter a hex value into the form manually, display the color box using that hex-color in the form next to the selection panel, and upon completion of the form, edit which colors I need within the entire workbook.

And I have an external application that will select the hex value of any pixel's color and paste it in the clipboard, so if could figure a way to run the small application upon the button-click, take the value from the clipboard, and then close the application, that would work.
