Formulas Not Updating Unless Re-entered

Oct 10, 2007

I've a lot of formulas (made in vba) in a Sheet. The problem is that even if the formulas all work as they should from the beginning, somtimes when I'm running some other macros, the formulas instead shows some error message. When selecting the cells and pressing enter, the formulas once again shows the right answer. Since it's extremely inefficient to select and press enter at each cell, what I need is some way to update these cells. Anyone know a quick way to update all formulas in the sheet?

Links Updating When New Row Is Entered Into Source

Jan 23, 2009

I have a master price list that will have items added or removed from it occasionally. I have sixty workbooks that contain detailed data on mixes of multiple products from the master price list. All the corresponding prices throughout the sixty workbooks are linked to their specific slot on the master price list. The problem: if the sixty workbooks are closed and anyone adds a new row to the master price list, when I open any of the workbooks the values update but the referenced cell does not.

So if the price for Product 25 is located in cell K118, and two products are added in above K118, when I open any of my mix sheets that contain Product 25 the linked cell should be to K120. But it's not doing it that way. It is holding on to the referenced K118 cell and updating the value to the wrong price.

I've played around with the VLOOKUP function but haven't been able to make it work. Linking the cell as I have has worked great, if I could just get it to adjust the reference as new rows are added to the source workbook.

I've figured out that it will update the workbooks when I add a row if all that are required are open when the addition is made. But my boss will not open sixty workbooks every time a change needs to be made to the master price list, which he controls.

Formulas Not Calculating Unless Re-Entered

Mar 20, 2008

I am working in an excel file with many sheets. I have vlookups on several pages that refer to a different page in my file. However, I am finding that the vlookups are not autocalculating. They are fixed on a value until I click into the cell and hit 'enter'

Updating Series Formulas For Charts

Jan 19, 2013

The charts I received have many Series formulas that reference and external spreadsheet

Is there a way that I can modify them and reference the same sheet name but locally

For your information
When selecting menu Formulas and then "Show Formulas" chart data series do not display
When selecting a Chart the "Show Formula" selection is not available (at least I did not find it)
In addition, when selecting the Chart, Then Design, then "Select Data", it replies in the pop-up with the comment "The data range is too complex to be displayed...."

There are about 40-60 formulas as shown below!!
The sheet name with data is D_Brand_Q

HTML Code:
' here is a sample of the current formula

' This is the desired formula

Cells With Formulas Not Updating Automaticaly

Mar 16, 2007

I have inherited a very complex spreadsheet which has some very simple formulas. As I changed some of the variables I noticed that the cells with the formulas are not updating automaticaly. If I highlight the cell and then position my cursor inside the formula bar then hit return the cell with update. Is there a protection or setting that I am unaware of that controls this behavier?

Formulas To Calculate IF Cell Has Something Entered?

Sep 28, 2011

I need to calculate the amount of time my daughter will be in daycare which varies each week. I have to give the same sheet that I have hidden calculations on to the center. I have to have the time she arrives at 7:15 AM (Cell A1) however they don't start to bill until 7:45 AM (Cell A2) and continues until 11:30 AM (Cell B1) and need C1 to be total hours between A2 and B1

I need a formula that will calculate the hours between 7:45 AM to 11:30 ONLY if cell A1 has a time entered in it. If A1 is blank then it should calculate 0 hours.

Example (WITH something entered in A1)
Arrive Time End Billable Time Total Billable Time
A1 - 7:15 am to B1 - 11:30 am C1 - 3.75 Hours

Start Billable Time
A2 7:45 am

Example (WITHOUT something entered in A1)
Arrive Time End Billable Time Total Billable Time
A1 - to B1 - 11:30 am C1 - 0.00 Hours

Start Billable Time
A2 7:45 am

If it has to be in 24 hour time is there a formula that I can enter in another cell to convert 12 hour time to 24 hour time again ONLY if A1 has something entered in it?

Chart Not Updating When Source Formulas Calculate

Feb 22, 2008

I have the same question as described in Graphs Not Updating When Source Data Updated; however, the poster did not reply to the request-for-clarification questions.

My chart does not always update when my source data changes. My Calculations setting is Automatic (not Manual). There is no macro code working to produce the source data or the chart. My chart is on the same worksheet as my source data. The source data is simple links to other cells in the same workbook that update as the underlying data is updated. Saving doesn't work. Manually calculating (F9) doesn't work. The only way I have found to get the correct data to display in the charts is to open the Source Data and re-enter the Series range. Obviously, that gets old.

Data Validation To Prevent Formulas But Allow Zero To Be Entered?

Feb 27, 2013

Should be simple but I can't get this to work,

I have used =value(a1) that prevents any formula, but it also prevents a zero being entered.

I have amended trying and/or statements in the validation but then it allows zeros and formulas!

Conditional Format - Highlight Cells In Column That Have Entered Numbers Rather Than Formulas

May 29, 2013

Col A - budget items (description)
Col B - budget dollars
Col C - actual dollars
Row 10 - summation Cols B and C

When the budget is prepared the actual dollars in Col C are equal to the budget dollars for all items. For instance the formula =b2 is placed in cell C2. As time passes the user records actual dollars in Col C for each item by entering the actual amount directly into the cell. Actual dollars do not become known all at the same time, so that Col C will contain a mixture of formulas and entered numbers.

How can I highlight the cells in Col C that have entered numbers rather than formulas.

Using Cell References In File Paths For Formulas To Create Dynamic Formulas

Dec 3, 2013

I am using a lot of linked reports that have to be rewritten each month. For example smaller formulas look like this:

=('S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$228*2)+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$262+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$292

What I want to do is extract the file path from the above formula and make it a composite of several cell references.

So what I need is to have a cell where they can change the month and another where we can change the year. So I set up several named cells that look like this:

_MONTH =11 November
_YEAR =2013

I tried several versions, I am hoping for something like this:

=('_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B$228*2)+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B$262+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B$292

Converting Formulas To Relative/absolute References With Formulas Referencing Other Sheets

Formulas To Hide Partial Concatenate Data And Determining Two Other Formulas

Dec 11, 2013

I'm trying to automate creating certain keyword combinations I need, based off of the values I input into reference cells in columns A - E; the goal is to compile a list of keywords which I will then use to track my rankings in search engines.

I'm looking to only output 500 keywords, so some of the cells in columns A, B, C & E will not contain data (column D will always have a primary Geo-target listed). This results in some of the concatenate formulas I've created outputting partial data (i.e. if there is no data in cell A10, and cell D2 contains the word "Knoxville", then cell I10 will output the data, "Knoxville "). How can I setup conditioning formatting or a formula so that these auto-generated cells appear blank if one of the reference cells has no data within it?The reason why I need the above to work is because I want to setup a formula that automatically counts the # of keyword combinations created by the data entered into any of the reference cells. With the partial combinations being listed, it skews my data. Which leads me to my next question: what is the best formula for counting the # of cells containing a full keyword combination from any of the cells listed in columns G - O (minus the data in the header cells; i.e. G1, H1, etc...)?Lastly, is there a formula I could use that would then aggregate all of the full keyword combinations within the "Complete Keyword List" column (column P)?

Excel 2007 :: Formulas In Cells Not Being Recognized As Formulas?

Jan 10, 2013

I am running Excel 2007 on Windows Vista Business 32 bit. Recently I have noticed that if I enter a formula into an empty, unsused cell, it is recognized as a formula. If I modify that formula, it is then recognized as text and does not work as a formula. The only way I can get the cell to recognize a formula is to delete the cell and start over. This same scenario does not occur on previously stored workbooks. I have checked all of the flags that I know about, including the Options function.

Using Two IF Formulas (3 Or More To Count If Other IF Formulas Are Actually Returning A Value)

Aug 24, 2009

I have a spreadhseet with various functions on it and what I am trying to do is this.

Cell E4 returns a >35 or <35 true or false value
Cell G4 is either blank or has "Yes" text type into it.

What I am trying to do is get cell F4 to return certain arguments.

E4 = >35 and G4 is blank I want it to state "Email Hiring Manager"
E4 = ,35 and G4 is blank I want it to state "Wait"

I have a basic IF formula that returns this
=IF(E4>35,"Email Hiring Manager","Wait")

Then if cell G4 is populated with a Yes the formula needs to overwirte the origonal if with the return arguments of
=IF(G4="Yes","Email Agency","Email Hiring Manager")

If yes then what would be Email Hiring Manager (yes will only be input if E4 is greater than 35) will be overwritten with "Email Agency"

Can this be done with two If formulas or does there need to be 3 or more to count if other IF formulas are actually returning a value?

Sum Is Not Updating?

I feel like I am losing my mind here. I have a basic SUM calculating a bunch of cells. I have done the SUM from th autosum feature as well as, just typing it is (=SUM(B1:b16)), It totals up the cells correctly, but, when I change a value in one of the cells, the sum is not updating? I have never seen this happen...Does anyone know what could be causing this?

RTD Not Updating

Mar 18, 2009

In my Excel 2007 I have downloaded an Add-in (Webiress data) which allows me to receive RTD of a particular security which I then use to plot a chart. In a day there are around 15,000 changes in prices of that particular security.

The problem is that the RTD misses many prices when the market is fast and also it frequently (around 20 times per day) stops updating and then I have to clear the cell where the RTD is updated and it returns to normal, updating the prices for few minutes and then stop again.

A friend of mine told me that I have to change one Registry in Excel to tell Excel to check for a RTD every 2 miliseconds. I found this suggestion a bit strange and I have no idea how to do it.

Has anyone ever come across a RTD issue like this?

I contacted the server provided (webiress) and they said there is no problem with the updating of RTD (real time data) and the problem should be on my side.

Updating Charts In 97

May 23, 2008

I update graphs/charts everyday. I've been looking at ways of updating a lot of charts in 1 action.....

What would the formula be to have the range of the chart (ie =Data!$BS$1188:$BS$1201) to get the row numbers, not the row, from numbers entered elsewhere on a data sheet (ie =Data!$BS$1188:$BS$1201)

As a lot of the time I use the same number range but on different rows and sheets.

Updating Links All At Once

Apr 11, 2008

if it would be possible to update all the links in a workbook at once. For example, say I have a worksheet which is linking to a file named something like 4-6-08 (1) and 4-6-08 (2) and so on with the number in brackets being from 1-21. Now say I have the same thing for 4-7 and 4-8 and 4-9. Now I want to change the links to point to 4-10,11,12,13 instead of 6,7,8, and 9. But still there are 21 copies of each sheet. Is there any way to change all the sources at once so all the 4-6's could become 4-10's and 4-7's to 4-11's?

Udf Stopped Updating

Mar 18, 2009

I have made a series of of udf's and used them without a problem in my worksheet. One of the variables used by udf's, " commission " is a named range on the "vrs" sheet in my book. All was working fine, all the udfs updated whenever i changed the value of "commission" by directly entering a new value in the cell referenced by "commission" I then wrote sub to call an input box wich collected a value for commission and put it in the ranged cell. Since then, of the 4 columns of data that commission acts on only 3 now update automatically. The recalcitrant 4th column will only update if I select the cell, place the cursor anywhere in the formula and press enter.

Updating A List Box...

Jun 8, 2009

I have written some code that populates a list box with data, and have allowed data to be deleted from the list box if a line of data is double-clicked, with the data below the deleted row being updated to remove the empty row, etc. All works fine except that, when I force the list box's 'selected' line to be the one below the last entry (as if you were selecting the next empty line with the mouse) and the code completes, you cannot click on the form and move it around, nor can you access any other of the form's controls, until you click inside the list box.

Apparently, forcing the line selection in the list box (to simulate someone clicking on a row in the list box) is what's causing the problem. I need to force the selection because the number of data lines in the list box is more than can be shown in the list box, therefore I need a method to automatically scroll the list box to show the next available line in the list box.
