Formulas In A Central Location

May 17, 2008

Is it possible to have the formula written in one remote cell, so that any modification done in this formula is reflected on all places where its refereced to?

z26 : Formula A

A1 : Formula A
A2 : Formula A
A5 : Formula A
A6 : Formula A
A7 : Formula A
A9 : Formula A
A11 : Formula A

in this example i store the formula in z26 and variety of cells in A are using it (not all of them)Suppose if i change anything in z26. I want it reflected in all the cells that are using this formula?

Transferring Files To A New Location Messes Up Formulas

Dec 22, 2009

I have a bunch of spreadsheets in one folder with several subfolders. On one spreadsheet, I have a bunch of formulas referencing another spreadsheet. This is an example of the formula: =C:UsersKatie DestktopMake Your Day Program8th Grade[Math 8,xls]Sheet1'!G2.

I am building this program at home, but then when I take the Make Your Day Program folder and put it on the J drive at my school, the formulas still try to reference my desktop instead of changing the formula to J:Make Your Day Program8th Grade etc.. Why? It is a pain to go through all the formulas and change them to reference the j drive because there are a LOT, and I have already done that once.
How can I ensure that when I transfer this program to the school drive, after the holidays, that the formulas will change to their new reference location?

Extract Date Value From Not Yet Created Worksheets To Put In A Central Document

Jun 27, 2013

At my work, we receive manufacturing plant reviews periodically from each plant. Information on the plant's completed tasks and dates of completion are then updated to a central summary document for all plants. These updates are completed forms which each plant supervisor fills out and uploads to our network. At this time, someone manually has to shift through all these plant update forms and pull key information out so the central summary document can be presented. I want to streamline this process so there is no double handling of review information or continuous code changes.

What would be a way to have the central summary document extract date information from the most recent file in a plant's update folder (i.e. a folder contains plant update 05/02/2013, 06/20/2013, 06/25/2013, 07/2/2013, 07/22/2013, 8/05/2013, 8/13/2013 and it will only pull date information from 08/13/2013. This also means that these worksheets have yet to be completed and therefore do not exist in the update folder until the plants post them.

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.

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

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.

Paste Formulas As Values (strip Out Unwanted Formulas)

May 13, 2008

I have a macro running this code to strip out unwanted formulas and formatting.

Sub Quote_Wrapup()

Range("qdata5,qdata6").Font.ColorIndex = 2

'To delete delivery address lines if 1st line empty

'No End If required as only one action as a result of the If

Columns("A:E") = Columns("A:E").Value .........................

A spreadsheet based on my template has been sent to me because the macro won't run properly. When I try to run the macro I get a Runtime Error '1004' Method 'Range' of object '_Global' failed on the following line. Columns("A:E") = Columns("A:E").Value.

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?

Lock Tab Location?

Nov 16, 2011

Is there a way in excel to prevent someone from "re-ordering" tabs in a workbook without using a macro?

I am using a sum formula that goes across multiple tabs, but noted when I rearranged the order of the tabs, that the results of the formula changed. After some minor research, I noted that I had moved a tab outside the "sum range" inadvertently.

Defined The Location

Oct 10, 2007

If Worksheets(FirstSheet).Cells(Counter, ColtoMove) = MoveIf Then
'i didn't add the THEN PORTION becasue it errors at the above statement.

the problem is that when i go to the defined location (Worksheets(FirstSheet).Cells(Counter, ColtoMove)) it shows the correct/or same PO number as when i put the cursor over the "MoveIF"....this leads me to think that it should not error.

Could it be a correct statement to say how the MoveIf is defined?

I have added a list of all of the potential values that can cycle through this statement.

how these entries could cause a problem in the above code? I am trying to keep it simple (outside of the long list below that is)

Offset From Location Of Another Cell

Jan 15, 2014

Is there any way to use the offset formula in reference to the location of another cell?

Here is a simplified version of my problem:

Sheet1!A1 refers to Sheet2!A1.
Sheet1!B1 refers to Sheet2!D1.
Sheet1!C1 refers to Sheet2!E1.

Is there any way that I can say that Sheet1!A1=Sheet2!A1 and then use the offset formula based on the location referenced in Sheet1!A1? The cells being referenced are merged cells one column wide and varying rows long, so there is no real pattern to follow except that the corresponding cells (the ones that I want to use the offset formula on) are all taking up the same amount of rows and are an equal amount of columns over (Sheet1!B1 refers to 3 columns over from Sheet2!A1, Sheet1!B1 refers to 4 columns over from Sheet2!A1). The spreadsheet is a fairly complex one and it would be much cleaner and less likely to have any mistakes if I was not referencing each cell individually.
