# How To Get The Original Location Of A Data

Dec 2, 2008

I have a range b2:g37 filled with numbers. I use max function to get the max number in this range in cell C41. For example, the number is 20400. Now I want to know where the 20400 is originally located in the spreadsheet (ie. in column B, C, D, ...? in row 2, 3, 4, ...?).

## 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.

## Highlight Entire Row When Cell Selected Without Losing Original Formats And Color Of Original Row

Sep 5, 2012

The problem is when I highlight a row with some color the original color of the row is gone, so I tried this code, and again, it's removing the original format and color for the row This is the code from McGimpsey & Associates : Excel : Highlight row with background colors

Code:
PrivateSub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Const cnNUMCOLS AsLong=256
Const cnHIGHLIGHTCOLOR AsLong=36'default lt. yellow
Static rOld As Range
Static nColorIndices(1To cnNUMCOLS)AsLong
Dim i AsLong
IfNot rOld IsNothingThen'Restore color indices

[code].....

How can I retain the range's historical color so that when I deselect the row it reverts properly?

## VBA To Autofill Formula Over Column Data Calculate And Replace Original Data

Nov 14, 2008

Id like to apply a formula, any formula to an entire column if it contains data, and incorporate the original data in the calculation and then replace the original data with the result. I don't want to have to create new columns.

I'm using this to fix up database results; a common problem is dates in dot format e.g. 14.11.2008

All I have so far is an autofill formula that overwrites everything. Can someone help me with the rest? I'm using the SUBSTITUTE function to replace the dots '.' with slashes '/'

Sub Create_formula_result()

Dim Limit As Long
Dim r As range
Set r = range("A1")

r.FormulaR1C1 = _
"=IF(RC[0]"""",(SUBSTITUTE(RC[0],""."",""/"")+0) ,"""")"
Limit = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count
r.AutoFill Destination:=range(r, Cells(Limit, r.Column))

End Sub

## Excel 2010 :: After Applying A Data Filter And Sorting The Data / How To Revert Back To Original

Dec 20, 2012

I'm using Excel 2010 and I applied a Data Filter to a simple table. I then messed around with the drop downs in each column, sorting the data by different criteria. After doing this, is there a simple way to get the table to revert back to its original order/form?

## Protect Original Data From Changes

Apr 22, 2009

I have a tracking log, stored on a network drive, that tracks open purchase orders on about 13 different buyers. Each buyer has access to this data, and would be interested in looking at it in different ways. I have an idea for protecting my original data in this workbook, but allowing others to view and edit the data anyway they want. I thought I'd run it past the pros first, to see if they knew a better way, before I started trying to code it.

My idea was to put a macro in the workbook open event that opens an input box, "Enter password or select okay." If they enter the correct password, the macro exits, and they are in the workbook. Any changes made after entering the correct password will be made to the original data. If they enter anything OTHER than the correct password, the code would save the workbook AS another name, so now any changes made would be only made to a COPY of the original data.

This way, when I do my daily updates, I can open the file using the password, and save the file after editing. Anybody else would only get to edit a copy of my original. The other question is..., is it possible to put a macro in the workbook exit event that requires a password to overwrite the original? Otherwise, the user could edit the data in the "saved as" version, then just overwrite the original file, either accidentally or maliciously. I know they could still overwrite it by editing the macro, but I don't think they're that savvy.

## Updating Original Data From Vlookup Screen

Apr 27, 2007

I need a method of updating a set of data held on tab1 from tab2 where details of one record is shown using VLOOKUP, possibly via a macro? For example:

Sheet 1 holds info on various companies - (Column headers: Name, address1,
address2, postcode, " DATE LETTER SENT")

Sheet 2 Uses a drop down menu to select the desired company and some VLOOKUP
formulas show the info from sheet1 on that one particular company. Sheet 3 There is a printable standard template letter which draws info from the record selected on sheet 2 (using standard =Sheet1!A1 formula) formated so the letter is addressed to the specific company selected. Back to: Sheet 2 - At the bottom there is a button which says 'Print' This runs a macro which selects sheet3, prints it then returns to sheet2. I need this macro to also go back to sheet1 and update the relevant record with ideally todays date (the date the letter was printed) in the "DATE
LETTER SENT" column mentioned before but can just be an 'X' to show a letter
has been printed for this company/record at some point. So in the future, by looking at sheet1 you can easil determine which companys have had letters printed against, and which havn't.

## Merging Duplicate Rows And Keeping Original Data

Feb 18, 2014

I need to merge rows with duplicate values in column A (Patient Name being the most important one), with columns B, C, & D usually having different isolated values as well. Columns E, F, G, H, & I are date columns, but the data is always going to be the number 1, meaning a patient was seen once that day (if they were seen two times that day for different reasons, information would be in an unmerged second row [same patient name listed in two separate rows], where columns B & C would be different). Column J is an autosum of columns E through I if that makes a difference. Column K is a notes column. The data that needs to be merged is always added to the bottom of the spreadsheet in order to show that a patient was seen on any given day, with columns B through K almost always being blank. Example:

Column A---------Column B---Col C----Col D--Col E--Col F--Col G--Col H--Col I--Col J---------Col K
Patient Name-----Therapist---Shared--%P----2/3----2/4----2/5-----2/6----2/7---Total Visits--Notes

Alice Alpha--------AB----------PT-------1---------------------------------------------0-------------blah
Boris Beta---------BC----------SELF----2----------------------------------------------0------------blahblah
Carl Carlisle-------CD---------PTA------3----------------------------------------------0
Carl Carlisle-------AB---------SELF-----2----------------------------------------------0
Donny Delta-------DE---------PT--------1---------------------------------------------0
Ernie Elephant-----EF---------PTA-------2---------------------------------------------0
Alice Alpha-----------------------------------------------1
Carl Carlisle--------------------------------------1--------------1---------------1
Ernie Elephant-------------------------------------------1---------------1

This is what I'm hoping it can look like:

Column A---------Column B---Col C----Col D--Col E--Col F--Col G--Col H--Col I--Col J---------Col K
Patient Name-----Therapist---Shared--%P----2/3----2/4----2/5-----2/6----2/7---Total Visits--Notes

Alice Alpha--------AB----------PT-------1---------------1-----------------------------1-------------blah
Boris Beta---------BC----------SELF----2----------------------------------------------0------------blahblah
Carl Carlisle-------CD---------PTA------3-------1--------------1---------------1------3
Carl Carlisle-------AB---------SELF-----2----------------------------------------------0
Donny Delta-------DE---------PT--------1---------------------------------------------0
Ernie Elephant-----EF---------PTA-------2--------------1---------------1-------------2

In this example Carl Carlisle is being seen for two different things, however how would it be written so the macro would know which Carl Carlisle row to merge with? I'm thinking that before running the macro I could manually enter the information into column B so it knows which Carl Carlisle row above to merge with.

Data always starts at row 14 (row 13 is frozen pane header column), and extends to a row that is different every week depending on how many people happen to be in the list.

I found something from this link that looks very similar to what I need, but with no knowledge of coding, I have no idea how it should be tweaked: Merge Duplicate Rows Keeping Data In Same Columns

I know I'm asking a lot, but the amount of time this takes to manually go through hundreds of rows of patient names every week is incredibly time consuming, and I have too many other things to stay on top of at work for this to drag me down day in and day out.

## Applying Filter To Original Data From Pivot Table

Dec 2, 2009

Instead of Excel creating a new sheet when I double click on the results of a pivot table, is it possible to just filter the results of the original source data's sheet?

Here is my situation, I have source data that needs to be updated after someone double clicks on the pivot table data. They won't be able to update the source data if it just creates a new sheet (since it's a copy).

I'm running Excel 2003.

## Sum With Multiple Criteria A Number Of Rows And Columns From Original Data

Sep 22, 2006

I have 6 columns of data laid out as follows,

columnA columnB columnC columnD columnE columnF
XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XX

XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XX

I need to find data in columns B and C and add the figures from column F, which drop down one line. I have written the following formula which is giving me far higher figures than I should be getting

= SUMIF(\$B\$2614:\$B\$2640,"bhree*",IF(\$C\$2614:\$C\$2640,">=01/07/2006",( OFFSET(\$C\$2614:\$C\$2640,1,3,1,1))))

## Search To Find Matching Cells And Copy/transpose Adjacent Data To Original Sheet?

Nov 12, 2009

I'm trying to find a way to search a second sheet in a workbook for specific criteria outlined in a first sheet (in my attached example, from A3 downwards within the 'list of search criteria' sheet), and then to copy any secondary data found against a successful search match to the original sheet, transposed against its corresponding matched search term.

As you can see in the example, the search term 'bindi' (A4 in the 'list of search criteria' sheet) appears in the 'data' sheet 3 times - the secondary data for these occurences ('feathery', 'Fibonacci', 'glassy') is copied to the 'bindi' row on the first sheet and is offset with each copy to produce a transposed-esque effect of copy and paste.

If it's any help, there are a maximum of 9 matches for a single search term in the real document.

Thanks in advance for your help... I tried to adapt a previous solution given to me for a similar question but failed miserably. I bow humbly to your expertise!

## Move Data To A New Location

Sep 27, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that I need to "relocate" data in. I need to take all of the narratives and want to move it to the far right so that it shows up in column "Q" I was hoping to be able to insert it and fill down, can this be done? ...

## Data [Advanced] [Copy To Another Location]

Jul 20, 2009

When I use Data, Advanced, Copy to another location the records that are copied are not unqiue to the Criteria range? If my criteria range is Cape it extracts records with Cape AND records with Cape Town. I only want to extract records with Cape?

## Counting Cross Location Data?

Mar 5, 2013

I have a list of data as follows:

Employee Location
John Florida
John New York
Jill Maine
Jack Maryland

I would like to determine if an employee works across locations. My complete list has 550 names in it, this is just a subset of the data I am looking at. Above, John works in 2 locations, however Jill & Jack work at a single location. I am looking to differentiate cross locational versus single location employees.

## Copy Data From User Input Location

Mar 18, 2009

I'm using a worksheet as a surveying program. I need to be able to enter a cell reference in my "input cell", ie "=A11". Then in cell the the right of the input cell I need "=B11" to be entered. And in the cell to the right of that, I need "=C11", and to the right of the I need "=I11". I can get so far working with one cell at a time.

If I enter "=A11" in T3, in T4 I can enter: =IF(T3=A11,B11,IF(T3=A12,B12,IF(T3=A13,B13..and so on. But 8 conditions is all I can enter before I get a message saying that the formula uses more levels of nesting than are allowed in the current file format. And I need to be able to enter at least 50 conditions in 3 adjacent cells.

## Copying Data Irrespective Of Folder Location

Jun 4, 2012

I have a folder "Macro" in the below location in my PC:

C:UserskkumarDesktopMy WorksMacro

There are 4 excel files in this folder:
Sales.xls, Quantity.xls, Forecast.xls and Macro.xls.
Macro.xls has 3 sheets: Sales, Quantity & Forecast.

I want a macro which will pull all data in:
Sheet1 of Sales.xls to "Sales" sheet of Macro.xls
Sheet1 of Quantity.xls to "Quantity" sheet of Macro.xls
Sheet1 of Forecast.xls to "Forecast" sheet of Macro.xls

Also one additional requirement is if I copy the Macro folder to some other location in my PC the macro should still work.

## Copy Data From Named File And Location

May 27, 2006

I am trying to set up a file name and path in a cell, and then use this from a number of other cells but with a cell location added to it. So for example:

cell A1 contains a file name "c:mydirectoryexcelfile.xls"

cell A2 needs to contain the contents of the cell at location K12 (for example) from the file referred to in A1
cell A3 needs to contain the contents of the cell at location K13 (for example) from the file referred to in A1

This is to save having to put the filename and cell reference in all of the of cells. I would then do the same thing with another file in column B of this file and the same with column C etc.

## Get User To Choose Location Of Linked Data

Sep 18, 2006

I've have a spreadsheet where 4 cells are linked to another workbook via a vlookup.
the problem i have is that a lot of users can update this external book, or it can be saved as a seperate spreadsheet somewhere else on the network. If it was up2 me i would have them only update the one sheet, but as it stands its not. So what i want to be able to do is put some code onto a button on the sheet, from here i want the: Application. GetOpenFileName

method to open....but from here i want them to be able to pick the cells where the data is situated. Any clues..... i can get as far as them selecting a workbook. Do you think i will need to create another userform?? Maybe RefEdit? I'm not sure.

## Transfer Data From Userform To Specific Location Not Next Empty Row

Mar 14, 2014

I have a User form with a combo box that is populated with numbers (1 thru 50) and four text boxes for first name, last name, email & cell number.

It all works fine. However: I would like it to transfer the data to (Sheet3) in numerical order... In other words, If the user picks number 5 his data would be entered in the fifth row.(or sixth counting header). Or if he chooses number 37, his info would be entered into row 37 (38 with header) of (Sheet3)

It currently populates the next empty row.

My code is below, How would I modify it to accomplish this?

Code:
Private Sub EnterButton_Click()

'Populates GetNumber Combo Box

Dim w As Worksheet, x As Long
Set w = Sheets("Sheet2")
x = w.Columns(19).Find(Me.GetNum.Value, lookat:=xlWhole, LookIn:=xlValues).Row
w.Range("S" & x).Delete

## Functions On Imported Data That Can Change Location In Table

Feb 7, 2007

I am trying to achieve can not be based on a range of rows or cells it must as this data is imported from a forecasting application and the location of the targets may change.

Perhaps an offset to the current selection can be used some how, but have a look-see if you know where Im coming from.

'I have used this to find a target in a data range.

Dim r1 As range

Public Sub FindDataIn Range(r As Range, target As Variant)

Set r1 = r.Find(target)
If r1 Is Nothing then
Else
r1.Select
End If
End Sub

'Then I inserted and Named this procedure to find the data on various assumptions or targets - SUCH AS THE VALUE "14306".

FindDataInRange ActiveSheet.Range (A1:A226), "14306"
Selection.EntireRow.Select
Selection.Copy
Selection.Insert Shift:=x1Down
Selection.EntireRow.ClearContents

Then I write this again for another Target such as 14307 and it repeats

The result is that it finds the target cell I get an empty row above the two rows that contain that target. (LET ME EXPLAIN WHAT I MEAN BY TWO ROWS)

The thing is there are two rows containing 14306 in that range and the range is sorted ascending so that they are positioned one under the other. Each row has different forecast totals beside this number because one is an export SKU and one is a Domestic.

What I want to do is combine the two rows as one with one row of forecast totals for the number rather than two.

Like this:
14306big Widget Domestic 26 89 (This is combined as a new row)

14306big Widget Export 12 14 (These 2 rows are then deleted)
14306big Widget Domestic 14 75

Also the Forecast totals run across 12 columns (one for each month) and then there is a column for year totals of each row that needs to remain the same.

Most important this here is this cannot be based on a range it must as this data is imported from a forecasting application and the location of the targets may change.

## Extract Data From A Specific Location In A Text File

Aug 7, 2006

I have been trying to work this out by looking at other posts (mostly concerning Binary Access) but can't figure it! The source text files I am using can vary in length from 4,000 characters to well over 100,000 characters. However the data I am looking for always starts 40 characters from the end of the file and is 10 characters long! I need my macro to pick out this data and store it as a string (so it can be added to an array and exported to a worksheet later)

## Importing Data To New Workbook Locks Original Workbook For Editing

May 24, 2006

I have created a workbook that imports data from another workbook which is used frequently on a network drive. After I import the data to my new workbook, it locks the original workbook for editing. Is there a property that will allow me to disable this 'locked for editing' read only mode or any other way to get around this?

## Copy Data From Multiple Workbooks To Single Workbook In Another Location Using VBA

Jun 10, 2014

I have a folder which contains multiple 'Customer' workbooks (example attachment 'Customer_001'). Each workbook has a filename unique to the customer (Customer_001, Customer_002, Customer_117 etc). The workbooks contain a single sheet with customer information and answers to questions. These 'Customer' workbooks are automatically saved into a folder once the customer completes a Userform and clicks 'save'. Potentially, there could be 100's of customers' workbooks saved in the folder, each with their own unique filename.

I also have a 'Master' sheet saved in a different folder (example attachment 'Master'). The 'Master' workbook has multiple sheets named 'Department 1' and 'Department 2'. The purpose of the master sheet is to consolidate all information from the individual customers' workbooks.

Specifically, I would like a command button on the 'Master' workbook to execute the following tasks...

1. Copy the data from range A3:F3 from each of the 'Customer' workbooks held in the folder.
2. Paste the data into the next blank row on the 'Department 1' sheet in the 'Master' workbook.

3. Copy the data from range A7:F7 from each of the 'Customer' workbooks held in the folder.
4. Paste the data into the next blank row on the 'Department 2' sheet in the 'Master' workbook.

5. Save the 'Master' workbook.
6. Delete all 'Customer' workbooks in the folder.

## Create Macro To Chart Data With Location As Object In Active Sheet

Oct 11, 2006

I have been trying to create a macro in excel to chart a selection of data and to output the chart on the active sheet where the data was taken (as opposed to a named sheet). So basically, I have about 300 worksheets with data, and I would like to have a button on each page that automatically charts that data when clicked, and outputs the chart to the page where the macro was clicked. However, I have not been able to figure out a relative reference that will allow me to make the LocationasObject reference simply the ActiveSheet as opposed to a specifically named sheet. See my code below, which references an output to a worksheet called "Charts". Right now, all of my charts are outputting to the sheet called "Charts", as opposed to the active sheet.

Sub ConsDiscChart()
ActiveCell.Offset(29, 11).Range("A1").Select
Selection.End(xlToLeft).Select
Selection.End(xlToLeft).Select
Selection.End(xlToLeft).Select
Selection.End(xlToLeft).Select
Selection.End(xlToLeft).Select
Selection.End(xlToLeft).Select
Selection.End(xlUp).Select
Selection.End(xlUp).Select
Selection.End(xlUp).Select
Selection.End(xlUp).Select
Selection.End(xlUp).Select
Selection.End(xlUp).Select
Selection.End(xlDown).Select
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Range("A1:B1").Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Range("A1:C24").Select
ActiveChart.ChartType = xlLineMarkers
ActiveChart.Location Where:=xlLocationAsObject, Name:="Charts"
With ActiveChart
.HasTitle = False
.Axes(xlCategory, xlPrimary).HasTitle = False
.Axes(xlValue, xlPrimary).HasTitle = False
End With
End Sub

## Excel 2007 :: Copy Column Of Data To New Location Ignoring Blank Cells

I am trying to create a formula which will look at the data in columns A - I (50 rows) and copy this data to columns K - S but ignoring any blank cells. Thereby consolidating the data in the upper rows with no spaces.

## Copy Individual Data Values In One Column To Single Cell Location On Multiple Sheets?

Jan 24, 2014

I am trying to come up with the most efficient way to copy data to multiple sheets within the same Excel workbook. The original data exists within one column on a summary sheet (could have up to 500 individual entries). I want to copy each individual entry to a unique sheet (that already exists), but in the exact same cell location within each sheet. I would only want to copy the original data value and not any formatting. Is there an efficient way to do this?

In my example spreadsheet, the original data is on the SUMMARY sheet. Sheets A through J would be the target sheets, with cell B2 as the target location for each of those sheets. My example shows the result of a manual copy paste value process, but I am hoping to automate that.

## Go To Another Worksheet And Then Come Back To Original

Aug 21, 2014

I'm setting up a payroll for several employees in one workbook. I start from the particular employee's worksheet and then I need to go to another sheet where various information is stored and then come back to the original employee's sheet. The current macro works fine if the various information is stored on each employee's worksheet but I can't figure out how to go to another sheet and then come back to my active cell in employee sheet.

## Get Rid Of The Original Column And Just Keep The Altered One

Jan 19, 2010

I'm using the function Proper(A1) to clean up some columns that have some entries in all CAPS. It works fine. What I'd like to do now is get rid of the original column and just keep the altered one. Of course since the original is the source for the new one, when I delete it the new one goes nuts.

## Percentages - Calculate Original Value

Apr 12, 2012

I have two issues:

1, How do I calculate the original value of something if it has dropped say 9.3%
Ex Stock value 5.56 down 7.4%. How do I calculate its original value.

2, I have copied some numerical data from a website, on one computer when I drop that data into an excel sheet it falls into separate cells allowing me to manipulate it, on another computer I drop it into an excel spreadsheet and all the data goes into one cell not allowing me to manipulate it.

I was wondering is there a setting on one excel spreadsheet that I am inadvertantly not using on the other.
