How To Reference Tables On Another Sheet

May 11, 2014

How do you reference a table on another sheet so that when you sort that original table it doesn't change the reference you made on that other sheet.

i know how to do this when i am referencing a cell. for instance if i am referencing a cell on sheet 5 and that comes out to something like =Sheet5!B2, i know that when i sort the data differently in sheet 5, that reference will know to change to =Sheet5!B18 or where ever that original reference ends up in this new sorting. but if I do =Table5[2] or something, and i sort that table differently, the reference will change to the new data in that cell and will not follow old reference through the new sort.

Reference To Alternate Tables

Jun 2, 2009

I want to reference to a range of tables depending on the value of a separate cell. Problem is that I don't know how to insert this into the range part of the lookup formula.


=vlookup(a12,NAMED RANGE AS PER CELL c9,2,false)

Cell a12 is the lookup reference which is fine.

Named range is set-up and working fine.

Cell c9 is the description of the named range - season_indices_Asda_Cream

I want that to be changeable by he user so they can change the name in cell c9 from a drop down list so that the lookup formula redirects to the alternate named range...

Excel 2013 :: Creating Two Tables That Can Reference With Microsoft-query

Jun 28, 2013

I don't have Excel 2013 so unfortunately I can't easily create relational data in Excel 2010. I'm looking for a solution to a design problem. I'd like to have 2 tables which I can join with Microsoft Query and run pivot table reports.

My department processes payments, both for internal clients and external clients. My Payments table looks like:

Date | Type (internal/external) | Operation (what type of payment) | Method (internet, mail, etc) | Quantity

Additionally, I have a table for Mail Opening, which looks like:

Date | Employee | Operation | Quantity

My overlapping fields are Date and Operation. Using each table individually, I can get nice pivot table reports. What I'd like to do though is be able to not just see what operations and methods were run each day with what quantities, but also to compare that to how much mail was opened. Employee and Operation is a multi-multi relationship, so when I join by date, I end up getting incorrect numbers because of problems with the data layout. I'm open to changing my data structure, as I know the way it's set up right now isn't great, but I'm having a mental block on how to redesign it. I attached a sample workbook.

Converting Two Tables In Different Sheets Into (Pivot?) Table In Another Sheet

May 27, 2014

I have a portfolio of 23 funds and I need to calculate IRR for each one every month.

The problem is that I have dispersed information for each fund.

For instance in sheet CashCallsBD I have a table with the funds cash calls. This table has a first column with the Fund Name then other column with the cash call date, another column with the cash call value. This table may have other columns. One fund may have several cash calls.

In sheet DividendosBD there is a table with some columns that refer to cash distribution movements. The main columns relevant for this case are Fund Name, Date and finally Cash Distribution (signed in red in the attached document)

And then my problem: In order to calculate IRR for each fund I need to create a table (for each fund) that merges and sorts the information of CashCallsBD, Dividendos BD and present market value for each fund and then apply the XIRR function. For each fund this sorted table would have at least 2 columns (date and values).

Separately Printing Multiple Tables From A Single Sheet

Mar 24, 2013

many times i am confrunted with excel files containing one sheet that has many tables on it. i need to print each table so that it fits on one page, but these tables are not formatted so that they fit, therefore i need a fast way to make each table fit on 1 printed page, no matter how big it is or how it is centered on the page size from page layout(many times the table is bigger than the page layout size). i tried selecting each table holding down ctrl and then hitting set print area, but most of the times this doesnt work, i still get part of the first table and the begining of the second table on the second printed page and so on, which is not good.

Dynamic Ranges (tables) Not Working On Protected Sheet?

Sep 10, 2013

I have a data set that is defined as a table (Ctrl + T). There are formulas so I locked those cells and Protected the sheet. If I am at the bottom right cell, and press Tab to add a new row, I get an error message: "Cannot use this table functionality on a protected sheet"

I really need to protect the cells with formulas so that the are not accidentally deleted. But I also want to retain the Table format.

Is there a way around this without using VBA?

Excel 2010 :: Creating Multiple Tables In VBA And Referring To Newly Created Tables?

Jul 1, 2013

Using Excel 2010. I'm writing a macro that sets up a workbook to be used for estimating at the beginning of a project. In the code I need to create multiple tables (formerly known as "lists") in the workbook. Then later in the code I need to refer back to those newly created tables. Currently, the code that creates the table is part of a loop that creates the table on many different worksheets. The problem of course, is that I have to name the Table, and then it won't create a table of the same name on the next sheet. Then, later in the code, I need to make adjustments to the table that was just created before looping to the next sheet.

Is there a way to create a table without giving it a constant name? Or by giving it a name that builds off of other info in the sheet? For example, I would be good with the naming the table after the sheet name: "Sheet1_Table" or such.

Sub Auto_Open()
Dim sht As Worksheet
If Range("A1") = 1 Then

Cross Reference Information From One Sheet With Another Sheet

Jul 14, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that shows a large number of folks we had working in a particular division from Jan. 1st until now, 1800 +. Some of the folks are on the sheet twice due to having more than one role. The sheet lists last name, first name, skill description, pay rate, company they worked at...etc. Most of the folks on the list are not currently working but some are. I have another spread sheet that lists the folks that ARE currently working. I'm trying to see if there is a way to compare the two sheets, via a formula, that will be able to identify when the first name, last name, company name, and skill description are the same and then have those identified deleted from the first sheet.

Reference To Sheet Number Rather Than Sheet Name?

Feb 17, 2014

To get the content of cells in other sheets of the workbook you refer to the 'Name' of the sheet and write e.g.:

[Code] ....

However, I need to refer to the '(Name)' of the sheet rather than the 'Name', i.e. 'Sheet1' rather than 'Fruit', and I would like to do it in a formula not using VBA.

Sum A Reference Off Another Sheet

Mar 31, 2009

I am using a sumif function that will sum a reference off another sheet.
I want to use a cell in the current sheet(where the formula exist) to reference the target sheet.
Is this possible.

For instance:
I believe you have to use indirect for to have formula reference a sheet name
I have two sheets, "Win" & "Lose"
On "Win" sheet I have this function =sumif(indirect(J180)G1:G20,"room",E1:E20)
On cell J180 of "Win" tab will be "Lose". I am trying to have the formula reference J180 as part of the function and have it sum anything in the "Lose" tab that has the word "room" in it.

Reference A Function From A Different Sheet

Nov 6, 2008

I have a the following function: =INDIRECT(ADDRESS(SUMPRODUCT((F35:G45=K40)*ROW(F35:G45))-21,SUMPRODUCT((F35:G45=K40)*COLUMN(F35:G45))))

I'm trying to put the get the value of it from a different Sheet.
say this function is in Sheet1 and I wish to place the equation in Sheet3 - what should I change? I tried INDIRECT(ADDRESS(SUMPRODUCT((Sheet1!F35:G45=K40)...
nothing works.

what the function does? there are 2 tables. table 1 has values and table 2 has values as well. K40 is the user input --it reflects the number in table2 and the return value is the 'reference' in table1. for example, if table2 in F41 has the number 54 and the reference for it in table1 is $344, when the user types 54 in K40 the returned result in the function will be $344

The material is listed as the worksheet name and the other information is inside that sheet. For ex... I would enter in Stainless, 7, 48x120 and it would give me the rest on sheet 1. I am totally lost, I have tried several different things but am coming up with nothing.

Reference Previous Sheet

Oct 5, 2005

I've found on this newsgroup a function to get the previous sheet

Function PrevSheet()
On Error GoTo EndFunction
Application.Volatile True
PrevSheet = Application.Caller.Worksheet.Previous.Name
Exit Function
With Application.Caller.Parent.Parent.Worksheets
PrevSheet = .Item(.Count).Name
End With
End Function

when i put =PrevSheet() i get the previous sheets name

What i want to be able to do is use this in place of directly
referencing the sheet name in my code as follows...
=IF(G4-J4<0,G4-J4,G4-J4)+'Week 1'!H4
So i want to be able to replace Week 1 with PrevSheet but i've tried
and falied on this. eg...

Could someone show me the correct syntax for this.

How To Use List As Sheet Name Reference

Oct 1, 2011

In the following example the costs for each FGI SKU are on detail cost build sheets each named simply 600001, 600002, etc.

To add a summary I simply list all the SKU's on a summary worksheet and reference each detail sheet. The problem is with large numbers of SKU's it gets clumsy having to create a reference for each sheet.

Is there a way to have the formula in the cost column reference the detail sheet based on the value in the FGI SKU column?

FGI SKUCost60000111.34 60000211.34 60000311.34 60000411.34 60000511.34

So to reference the cost for the 600002 SKU instead of this...


I would like this...

=+'value in cell with 600002 in it'!$E$7
