How To Reference Other Sheet Names In Workbook But Keep Cell References The Same

Oct 7, 2013

Within one workbook I have 15 sheets, 13 are for separate divisions within the company, 2 are used to present sums across the 13 sheets. All 13 sheets have identical columns and rows, with unique numbers in each cell. Right now I am manually selecting the cells to reference in my master sheet, =sheet name!cell+sheetname!cell+sheetname!cell - so and and so on. How can I reference the sheet name once, and then all of the cells to SUM? =sheetname!(c4+c14+c24+c34) etc?

This would let me be able to copy the formula from cell to cell, and only have to change the sheet name each time.

Cell Range References (Labels / Names)

Aug 6, 2013

I inherited a Profit & Loss (P&L) template from a colleague. She developed it on Excel 2013 and I'm on Excel 2010, but it's not clear that is the issue here (tho, never say never).

The spreadsheet was set up for quarters and I've expanded it (by copy and paste) to 12 months. It has the typical tables: sales revenues, cost of goods, admin exp, etc. Each table has a number (varies from table to table) of rows with a subtotal in the bottom row of each table. There is also a label row above all the tables (this now has the month labels).

The problem: The subtotal (bottom) row of a table uses the formula "=SUBTOTAL (109, ref1)". In the original spreadsheet, ref1= "QTR1" (or QTR2, QTR3, etc.). I'd like to change that to be MONTH1, MONTH2.... However, when I enter MONTH1 or MONTH2, etc. for ref1, I get a formula error. Which I suspect is expected.

What I noticed is that if I highlight ref1 in the subtotal cell formula and then select the cells I want included in the subtotal, the first selected cell shows a "B8". With 2 cells, it shows "B8:B9". Good so far. However, when I get to the last cell before the subtotal row, ref1 changes to "[QTR1]", so the final subtotal formula shows "=SUBTOTAL (109, [QTR1])".

I've tried to change QTR1 to MONTH1, but get an error. I used Name Manager, but QTR1 doesn't show up on the list (However, the tables are named and seem to reference the columns correctly). If I do a "Define Name", the window pops up w/the name entry empty and the "Refers To" containing "=tblName[QTR1]" (tblName is the name given to the specific table (revenue, cost of goods, etc.) and does show up under Name Manager).

I tried an experiment and in the revenue table I deleted (move left) the cells (up to but not including the subtotal cell) under MONTH1, and then inserted (move right) a new set of cells. Now the "Refers To" shows "=tblSalesRevenue[Column7]".

So, apparently, Excel can assign some kind of label to a set of cells. My question is, how do I (if I can) change that label, or name, so that the column of cells I want to use for my subtotal formula will work (MONTH1, MONTH2, etc.). It's not clear that Define Name or Name Manager is what I should use. I looked at the original spreadsheet and there are no Name Manager listings for QTR1, QTR2, etc.

Additional Note: I forgot to mention that this isn't a show stopper, just a nuisance. If I use normal cell references (i.e. B8:B11, etc.) the spreadsheet works fine and as expected. This is just one of those "nits" that I'd like to understand so that I can make the spreadsheet programming more "readable".

Hyperlink Won't Keep Reference When Sheet Names Change?

Sub RenameTabs()
For i = 1 To Sheets.Count
If Worksheets(i).Range("C1").Value <> "" Then
Sheets(i).Name = Worksheets(i).Range("C1").Value

Reference Sheets With Variable Sheet Names

Dec 4, 2007

I have a workbook with multiple sheets. There is an overview sheet and then 14 sheets allowing for 14 days worth of schedule information. There are then 3 sheets following the 14 days to total some information. The workbook users frequently change the sheet names of the 14 sheets to reflect days of the week.

I'm creating a copy for distribution that takes the active workbook and copies the values to a new workbook. There are columns that I would like to delete from the 14 day sheets and that would be easy enough if the sheet names were never changed.

The code I'm using currently follows (my thanks to Turtle 44 for helping on that section)

Sub Copy_Visible_Sheets()
Dim arr() As String
Dim i As Integer
Dim WB As Workbook
Dim WS As Worksheet
Set WB = ActiveWorkbook
Application. ScreenUpdating = False

'Make sure template is saved as .xls
If Not ThisWorkbook.Saved Then
MsgBox "Please save this workbook before generating a Client Copy."

Reference Sheet Names With Indirect Function To Make Formula?

May 21, 2014

Attached I have a document where I am wanting all of the individual sheet names on the Total page. Rather than having to change each formula to match the sheet name I believe there is a way to reference the sheet name column (AO) in the formula so you can drag it down to fill in the columns. I am basic with Excel and do not know how to add this indirect function into my current formulas.

Circular Reference: Cell References In The Formula Refer To The Formula's Result, Creating A Circular Reference

Formula That References A Cell Where Workbook Is A Variable

May 24, 2007

Say cell C5 contains the name of a project (workbook). eg

C5 = "[Project1]"

In my current workbook, I want to find the value in cell B8 of Sheet1 of the project shown in C5. If I wrote this directly, it would be "='[Project]Sheet1'!B8"
But the name of the project is a variable shown in cell C5 (as explained above). So I need a formula that will find the value in cell B8 of sheet1 of the project shown in C5.

Index Workbook - Return Sheet Names

Dec 19, 2012

I have a workbook with a menu and 122 sheets holding detail for unique item (product model).

On the menu there is an index of the sheet names which was hand typed. However, the sheet names change as models evolve/get replaced.

I've written a small macro to put the sheet name in cell J1 of each sheet.

[Code] ......

On my menu page i was hoping to do something like this:

Index NAME
2 =sheet[A2].$J$1
3 =sheet[A3].$J$1

That way i could just drag this down and my index list would complete itself and would dynamically update as sheet names change....

Excel 2013 :: Not Loading Listbox With Sheet Names From Another Workbook

I've created a macro that loads a listbox with the sheet names from another workbook. It works fine with Excel 2007-2010 but some reason fails with 2013.

Displaying Sheet Name Before All Cell References In Formula

Oct 11, 2013

Any way to always include the sheet name before the cell address in a formula? For example, in my "Summary" sheet, I have a formula:

=A2 + B4/B5

However, without typing anything else, I'd like the formula to populate the sheet name since I will be extracting the formula as text and need the full reference:

=Summary!A2 + Summary!B4/Summary!B5

A way to get around this is to enter the equal sign, then temporarily select another sheet, then go back to the "Summary" sheet where all cell references will include the sheet name, but if there is a quicker way to do it using some kind of property or event in VBA, that would be ideal.

Using Relative References In Range Names

Jun 5, 2009

I have a workbook with a single worksheet. The worksheet includes some named ranges, which are used in a dynamic chart (so that when I add data, the chart updates).

I want to duplicate worksheet#1 so that I can have worksheets 2, 3, 4 etc.

Thus I can paste new data in the new worksheets, and have all my calculations done.

Naturally, the only probelm is the graph. It is using the named ranges from worksheet #1.

Is there a solution, so that I don't have to re-create my graphs on each worksheet? (each worksheet has varying numbers of rows, AND, I will be updating each worksheet with new data from time to time, thus the need for a dynamic chart)

Pasting Data From One Sheet To Another With Formatting And Cell References

Feb 11, 2010

I have inherited a monstrous speadsheet on which all data appears on a single sheet rather than being broken up across several sheets in some logical fashion.

One portion of this monster is a set of quite a few form letters, each of which reference various cells elsewhere in the spreadsheet.

I want to move all of these letters, together, to another tabbed sheet as a first step in reorganizing the monster.

Simply copying and pasting the cells or columns doesn't work. It fails in different ways depending on which pasting options I employ.

A very simplified version of my problem appears on the 5 sheets of the attached file, with what I hope is just enough further detail about the difficulty.

By the way, I also tried using the "Insert Copied Cells" option when pasting but since this failed with the exact same results as one of the other options I didn't include the results in the example shreadsheet.

Absolute External References When Defining Names

Nov 29, 2006

I would like a defined name (1) in my excel document (A) to refer to another defined location (2) in an external document (B), which is a master document that will not move or be renamed. The main document (A) is one which will be copied to numerous locations within our company's network.

Therefore, I need the defined name (1) to have an absolute reference to the external document (B). At the moment I'm only able to get a relative reference, since Excel 'simplifies' the reference when both files are opened. Here is what I'm currently using: ='J:Invoice TemplateOffice list01 231106 List of offices.xls'!SiteNames

Copying Sheet Names And Cell Data Into New Overview Sheet

Mar 21, 2013

I have workbook that has several sheets within the workbook that are set up identical. Each of the sheets in the workbook are for a specific company.

As of right now I have been adding a sheet to the workbook that is an overview for what is in each sheet (the individual companies). Currently I am doing the formatting of the heading and column names manually and I pull the data from each sheet with a VLookup. I have been trying to enhance my VBA skills with coding something that will fill in the appropriate cells from worksheet to worksheet.

What I am trying to do is to populate an overview sheet with cells C24, C25, and B36 being static on each row per sheet. Then each row will be populated with cells C(36, 59, 70, 81), D(36, 59, 70, 81), F(36, 59, 70, 81), G, and H(36, 59, 70, 81). The overview sheet will have the diagram below in a ru
