# How Do I Convert A Cell(s) From The Formula To It's Contents

Jan 29, 2006

Using Excell 2000 ...

Cell A1 of the Input Sheet, for example might contain the words "This is
a TEST"

Cell A1 of the Output Sheet contains the formula: ='Input Sheet'!\$A\$1
.... thus displaying whatever the contents is of cell A1 of the Input Sheet.

I want to save the formula results in time ...

I want to convert the cell(s) of the Output Sheet to the results ...
getting rid of the equation(s).

I'm sure I have seen this before, I just cannot remember? ... getting
old!

## Convert Multiple Versions Of Cell Contents To Single Version?

Feb 28, 2014

I would like to automate the conversion of multiple versions of company names contained in cells to a single company name. i.e. XYZ Inc., XYZ Co., XYZ to all cells XYZ. My data file contains numerous versions of company names. I want them to all be the same company name so sorting data is easier. I now do this manually and it is getting tedious and time consuming. Can I build a table with the different versions that then chamges the cells to a single version that I choose?

## Function: Cell Contents Formula Or Value

May 18, 2006

I seem to be unable to locate a worksheet
function that allows me to determine, if a given cell contents is a formula
or a value.

## Split Contents In A Cell With A Formula

Jul 13, 2009

I want to split the contents in a cell using a formula.

For Example, I have ***PavanKumar*** in A1
I want ***Pavan*** in A1 and ***Kumar*** in B1

## Formula To Split Cell Contents

Aug 27, 2009

Using XL07, some of my data looks like this

TY+/*-
PX/*-
TFM/*+

In an adjacent column, I am seeking to display the letters, numbers or symbols that appear before '/'. I would normally solve this little problem with something like =left(A5,2) or some combination of left and len. This method fails when the formula finds a len of 8 when the previous highest len was 7.

## Formula To Delete Cell Contents After Use

Feb 28, 2007

I need a formula that would scan a given column for data, get the first available data from the first available cell ( D1 ), perform computation, input result in a different cell ( A1 ) and then delete the contents of D1 and move on the D2 and so on till end of data. So far I have been able to have the result in A1 but could not achieve the deletion of D1 contents. The purpose is to prevent the formula from scanning the data column from D1 again. In this way, the datawould be made available in one column and when the data have been processed the column would be empty and the result would be in another column.

## How To Convert Column Contents To Number

Jan 4, 2014

Im trying to convert the data in certain columns to number. I need to select the rows in those columns based on the rows counted in another column with a different heading, this is because there can be breaks in the data half way down the columns.

The Code I have so Far is:

Code:
Sub ConvertTonumber()
'Convert Certain Columns to numbers
'Use the "x"column to Calculate how many rows are required to fill the columns.
Dim ColX As Range

[Code]....

## Refernceing Cells: Formula That Looks At A Cell On A Front Sheet, And Then Returns The Contents Of That Cell As The Result If It Meets The Criteria

Apr 5, 2009

I have a formula that looks at a cell on a front sheet, and then returns the contents of that cell as the result if it meets the criteria. So for example this formula would be in Cell A1 on Sheet2 IF(SHEET1!A1,"New",Sheet1!A1,"-")

This formula is always in the same cell (different sheet) as the cell that it is looking at, down 1500 rows. Instead of having the formula named for each cell is there anyway to ask excel to 'look at this cell but on this other sheet'.
e.g IF(Sheet1!"This Cell" etc). That way no matter what cell you put the formula in it is always referencing the correct cell for the formula?

## IF Statement Formula Which Will Change The Contents Of The Cell

Jan 23, 2008

I need to create a formula which will change the contents of the cell to one of 3 options based on the value of another cell

For example if I was using B2 as the cell to reference I need to say IF B2 = 0 then say "Closed", IF B2 = 1 then say "Open" and if its any other value then say "Error".

I'm having some trouble having all 3 if statements nested correctly.

I don't want to do this as a macro just as a formula.

## Auto-replace Typed Contents In A Cell With A Formula

Apr 9, 2008

I want to set up a sheet macro that will replace the contents of a cell (when a specific number is typed in) with a specific formula.

For instance, when "43" is typed into any cell within specified columns (say columns C and H), it changes to the following formula: =IF(D47="",43,IF(D47<=3030,408,43))(WHERE D47 WOULD REPRESENT THE CELL ADJACENT TO THE CELL WHERE "43" WAS TYPED.)

IE:

If "43" was typed into cell C1, then it would change to the formula: =IF(D1="",43,IF(D1<=3030,408,43))

If "43" was typed into cell C50, then it would change to the formula: =IF(D50="",43,IF(D50<=3030,408,43))

## A Formula That References A Table Based On Contents Of Another Cell

May 20, 2008

Here is what I am trying to achieve:

I have a workbook with two tabs, on the first one there is one column and the top of the column(A1) is a dropdown containing the options 'Boy' or 'Girl'.
One the second worksheet I have two named tables (Boy and Girl) - these tables each contain a single column array with 5 names in each (so we have a table of 5 boys names and a table of 5 girls names)

What I want to happen is when a user selects an option from the dropdown in A1 the cell below(A2) is populated randomly with a name from the corresponding list.

I have achieved this initially using the following formula:
=IF(A1="Boy", INDEX(Boy,RandInt(1,10)), INDEX(Girl,RandInt(1,10)))

This works fine, but I will need to expand this for several dropdown options, so my new workbook will have a dropdown of car makes, and each make will have a list of the models associatied with the car make (e.g. Ford: Fiesta, Escort, Mondeo...)
But I do not want to have a ridiculously long nested IF statement for every car Make, so what I want to do is something along the lines of the following:

=INDEX([CONTENTS OF A1],RandInt(1,10))

So I use the text selected from the dropdown in A1 as the TableName in my formula - however, I cannot retrieve that to use in the formula without it coming back as a text with the "" included and my formula errors!

## Dividing Output Of Sumproduct Formula By Count Of Specific Cell Contents

Aug 21, 2009

I've got the following sumproduct formula (which seems to work):

=SUMPRODUCT(--(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(\$B17,Product_Keywords))),--(YEAR(Invoice_Date)=H\$3),--(ROUNDUP(MONTH(Invoice_Date)/3,0)=H\$4),--(Invoiced_Amount))

B17 is a keyword to be found in the Product_Keywords range

I'd like to modify it so that:

ifthe cell in the range Product_Keywords also includes "," thendivide the sumproduct by the number of commas+1

Presumably I could add --(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(",",Product_Keywords) as one of the conditions,
but how would I keep track of the number of commas in the cell?

## Convert Blank Formula Cell To Empty Cell?

Feb 26, 2008

I am using a IF(ISNA(Vlookup##,##,##)),"",(Vlookup##,##,##)) function, in order to remove N/A errors.

Is there anyway to convert the "" values to back to an empty cell without anything in it (i.e not text "", but empty as it was originally). I find that the file sizes are very large, when using this function, as data (although blank) is stored in each cell (i know this, because if I use cntr+arrow, it sees it as data, and not an empty area). I don't want to manually go through each cell and delete them as there is quite a bit of data (10000 rows , 2 columns, 30 tabs)

## Convert Cell Reference Text To Cell Formula

Aug 18, 2009

I am wanting to convert a cell reference text
"=\$A\$1"
to an actual cell reference
=\$A\$1

Manually I can go through each cell and click F2 + Enter and Excel automatically changes it.

I have tried recording a macro whereby I click through each cell with F2 + Enter but the VBA writes the actual formula "=\$A\$1" rather than the process. This does not work as the cell reference is variable.

I'm NOT wanting an external cell to convert it for me
i.e. INDIRECT(CELL)
because I am wanting to copy the answer to another independent spreadsheet

I'm NOT wanting to paste values
i.e. return the answer from cell \$A\$1
because I want the cell reference to remain within the cell.

## Cell Formula To Convert Text To VBA Code

May 8, 2014

I am about to take on a rather large excel project for our company. The first part is coming up with how to deal with our drafting department's length inputs. In this project, our users will be entering lengths in a unique format. I have to convert that unique format to a standard Foot-Inch-Fraction format.

To try to keep the file size down and keep the complexity down, converting a cell formula to VBA so i can run this on a group of cells rather than repeating my code downward multiple rows on multiple sheets.

It is either this or come up with my own font that will convert it for me but I do not know where to start with that. How to take a stab at converting this to a VB code i can run?

A3 = 1.0108
B3 = 1'-1 1/2"

The code in B3 looks like this:

[Code] .......

An explanation of the unique format we use in our drafting department:

Basic Feet, Inch and Fraction format = 0 . 00 00 = Feet . Inch Fraction

The numbers left of the decimal point are feet. The first two numbers to the right of the decimal point are inches and the next two are sixteenths of an inch.

Examples:
4’-2" = 4.0200
15’-5 1/4" = 15.0504
4’-11 3/8" = 4.1106
0’-1 15/16" = 0.0115

## Use The Contents Of A Cell In A Formula In A Different Cell?

Apr 3, 2009

I've got a master workbook which reads from a number of other workbooks. The names and file address of the workbooks it reads from are listed in column A - e.g. A1 contains "C:DocsInfoFile1[sheet1.xls]". I've got a forumla that reads the required information from the workbooks and it looks like this:

=('C:DocsInfoFile1[sheet1.xls]Summary'!\$B\$3)+('C:DocsInfoFile1[sheet2.xls]Summary'!\$B\$3)

What I need to know is how I can replace the address in this formula with the value in column A. There will be many different sheets to read from and they'll change occasionally so I thought it would be easier to have one cell containing the name of the latest relievent sheets the formulas will link to rather than having to update each formula every time.

## Copy Text To Cell And Convert To Numeric Formula

Feb 15, 2014

I have a spreadsheet where I enter text values in a cell, e.g. (.5 x .5) x 2 x .009. I want to find a way to automatically populated the cell to the right with the formula version, e.g. =(.5 * .5) * 2 * x .009 and format as three decimal place number.

One other question, is there a way to enter a template for entry in a cell. It would be nice if the text value above would take care of the parenthesis and multiplication signs for me.

## Macro To Edit A Cell & Convert Formula To Text

Oct 13, 2006

Have a macro that copies a formula from each of 100 workbooks to a new workbook. I want to display these formulas as text and want a macro or someway to display these cells as text. I have tried to record a macro that presses the F2 key, the home key and the apostrophe. This works for the one cell but provides the following macro that does not work for anyother cell.

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
"'=VLOOKUP(\$A\$30,'G:Variance Reports FY07[Salary Dist Var Repts_Cur Mth.xls]end of July'!\$E\$76:\$G\$200,3)"
Range("B3").Select

## 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.

## IF Formula With Double Contents In A Column

Aug 15, 2009

the formula i used is " =IF(A2=A3;"YES";"NO")

the contents are as follows

A
Numbers

2525 - YES
2525 - NO
2526 - YES
2526 - NO
2528 - NO
2530 - NO
2527 - YES
2527 - YES
2527 - NO

how can i use a formula... that tells the last double entry yes too instead no?
for example above...

2525 - YES
2525 - NO (i want the formula say this "YES" too..)

So i want to find out through filtering.. all the double entries with YES.. so i can work with it without missing any double entries.

## Change Formula Range Without Changing The Contents?

Aug 21, 2012

I'm using the formula =SUMIF(F18:F18,"LY",G18:G18), =SUMIF(F18:F18,"KT",G18:G18), and so on.

I want to change the range to: =SUMIF(F7:F18,"LY",G7:G18), =SUMIF(F7:F18,"KT",G7:G18), and so on.

I can do it manually, but it's 20 rows.

Is there a way where i can change the formula range on the first and copy it down, without also copying the initials, (etc. "LY") ?

## Copying VLOOKUP Formula With Incrementing Contents

Apr 28, 2014

Have a cell (G6) that contains the following formula, which looks up the cell adjacent to it (H6):

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(\$H\$6,Customers,2,0)),"",VLOOKUP(\$H\$6,Customers,2,0))

I want to copy this formula to hundreds of cells below the first cell, with a formula that increments as follows:

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(\$H\$7,Customers,2,0)),"",VLOOKUP(\$H\$7,Customers,2,0))
=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(\$H\$8,Customers,2,0)),"",VLOOKUP(\$H\$8,Customers,2,0))
=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(\$H\$9,Customers,2,0)),"",VLOOKUP(\$H\$9,Customers,2,0))

....etc.

Is there a way to copy this formula, and have it increment as shown?

## Clear Formula If Date Has Passed Paste Contents

Have a macro where is some dates have passed the formulas are cleared but if the date is < than TODAY the value is left. All worked ok until I changed to formula to where the date calulated exclued weekends. Have attached example spreadsheet.
Forgot to add the marco was provided by the hard work of fellow Ozgrid memeber (Ger).

## Convert Formula Into Value

Nov 12, 2008

How to convert the excel formula into its value? I know the easiest way is to copy and use paste special then "value" options but is there a way to make it automated in case the desired output value has resulted.

HTML example:
A1 B1 C1 D1
1 2 A1+B1 Yes/No

on the above example, if D1=Yes, the output C1 will become value equals to 3 and the formula will be remove, if D1=No, the formula will still remain.
