I am currently using the VB code from an older post in here.
Index Worksheet Plus

The problem I got is that i do NOT want all sheets to pop up in the index page. I got several sheets that I do want to exclude from the index listing. The sheets I want to exclude is not hidden.

Is there any way to exclude sheets from the index ?

Sheet Indirection. Refer To Sheets With Changing Names

Feb 25, 2008

I've been referencing sheets in my code directly with things like

Sheet1. Range(NamedRange)

however in recreating a new workbook (to reduce bloat), the sheet-numbering has changed... to avoid having to mess around adjusting things again, I was wondering if it's possible to do some sort of indirection... something similar to

#define SHEET_SC_CONFIG Sheet1
#define SHEET_CUSTOMER Sheet2

'and then use these throughout the code....

(cannot reference by sheet name, as end user may change these)

VBA Select Multiple Sheets Of Varied/Changing Sheet Names

May 18, 2006

How can I select sheets in a workbook based on the premise that the sheetname does not have the letter "Q" in it? New to forum, so apologies if format is not kosher.
I have a group of 50+ workbooks which are all set up in the following format:

-Contains 30+ sheets.
-Sheet names are varied, but follow a pattern. I try to keep the sheet names consistant on all workbooks so that it is easier to reference, but other users make this impossible.
-However, I managed to keep two things consistant: There are two categories of sheets. In one group all sheetnames have a "Q" in them and in the other group all sheetnames DON'T have a "Q" in them.

Here is my problem: I need to run a macro to perform retative tasks on the GROUP OF SHEETS WITHOUT A "Q". To begin the macro I need to select these sheets and copy them to a new workbook, but since the actual sheetnames are varied, I am having trouble coming up with a flexible way of selecting sheets. The closest I have come is using a IF ... LIKE ... THEN statement, but I can only get it to work to select the sheets with a "Q" in the name and not the opposite.

Moving between different sheets changes the procedure window, which is a good thing, but can also can be error prone and annoying to search through several windows searching for the procedure or module currently working on. Is there a setting somewhere to prevent VBE from changing the current procedure window?

Hyperlink Within Workbook Without Changing Name Of Link

May 27, 2014

I have an overview worksheet that features a list of dates; I want to hyperlink the dates to the another worksheet within the workbook that represents the month. I want to do this without changing the dates in the overview sheet. For example, I have 2014-05-23, 2014-05-24,2014-05-25 in my overview sheet and I have a worksheet titled May 2014. When I try to hyperlink the dates to the May worksheet it turns the dates to #### in the overview sheet. How can I stop that from happening?

Hyperlink To Other Sheets Within Workbook When Sheets Change Name

Mar 24, 2012

I want to create a hyperlink to a sheet named "adsf"

I am currently in a worksheet named: "62b Arcus"

I want the hyperlink to be set by grabbing the name from another cell.

For example, In cell h7, I have the text: adsf

In cell g7, I want to place a formula such as: =HYPERLINK("adsf!")

Except, instead of this, I want: =HYPERLINK("h7!")

In this way, i want it to hyperlink to a sheet name based on the text that is in h7.

But neither of these formulas work. Both say the following: "Cannot Open the Specified File"

After reading up on this I have discovered that I must save the file and include the file name inside the formula.

My file name is: [Maintenance Color Codes of Houses - colour coded2.xlsm] =HYPERLINK("[Maintenance Color Codes of Houses - colour coded2.xlsm]adsf!A1","LINK")

This hyperlink actually works. Yet I have a problem. What if I rename the file. For this reason, I want it to grab the current file name using "filename". I have tried this by the following:


This grabs the current file name "Excluding the text outside of the [ and ]. I was able to create this formula myself.

How come I can't replace the part with [ and ] =HYPERLINK("[Maintenance Color Codes of Houses - colour coded2.xlsm]adsf!A1","LINK")



These two formulas together would be:


I also want to replace the "adsf" part with a cell number such as h7. So that it says h7!A1","LINK") or in full:


This doesn't work either

I know that I have probably created a ridiculous formula for what I am after. I'm almost there but not quite. You may know something far, far more simple.

Pre-Checking Valid Sheet Names In Hyperlink

Jan 18, 2012

I have the following macro, which is assigned to ctrl+shift+h to allow users to make a list and to insert hyperlinks to other sheets that have more details than the list can show:

Sub linker()
Dim strDocument As String
Dim strSheet As String
Dim strAddress As String
Dim strLink As String

[Code] .......

I was surprised to see that even if the contents of the active cell is not a valid sheet name in the target document, the link is still inserted without error. If the link is subsequently clicked, the target document will open and an "invalid reference" error box will appear.

Is there any way to check whether the contents of the cell constitutes a valid sheet name in the target workbook at the point at which the hyperlink is created, without opening up the target document?

Newly Created Tab Names Placed As Hyperlink On Content Sheet

May 11, 2006

I attach an example worksheet with the code I have thus far.

In my workbook I have other sheets, one of which changes and updates a specific one each time a new client's data is entered on said other sheet. Because I want to save the specific client's data and not lose it when another client's stuff is entered on this other sheet, I copy the sheet where the data is summarised (I called this sheet "Sheet to Copy From") to a newly inserted sheet and use Paste Special, Values Only to change all functions /f ormulae / Links ect to values.

I then change the name of the sheet to the name of the client.

I then use this sheet name / cell value to polulate a range on another sheet (Next Empty Cell) as a Hyperlink to the newly created sheet above. This sheet I called "Table of Contents".

how to code the hyperlink. Using Macro Recorder uses the specific case's names, but the Tab name to be used as Hyperlink value will always be the name of a new client,

Hyperlink Code For Sheet Names With Spaces Or Dashes

Sep 7, 2007

I believe I have 99% of what I need. The code below has one bug. (See just the underlined text for a very quick overview. The rest is detail.)

My goal is to generate a TOC that:
1) has the VBA run from my Personal Workbook.
2) can be run in any worksheet of any open workbook.
3) can be run in a worksheet of any name.
4) will insert itself at the currently active cell.
5) has entries hyperlinking to the referenced worksheets - of any name.

Right now, I'm stuck with the last point. The macro below will generate the TOC at the currently active cell. The TOC will be hyperlinks to the referenced worksheets.

However, if the referenced worksheet contains a space, dash, or other special character then the generated hyperlink is broken. For example, if the referenced worksheet is "sheet1" then the hyperlink generated works just fine. However, if the referenced worksheet is "sheet-1" then the generated hyperlink doesn't work.

Sub IndexList()
Dim objSheet As Object
Dim intRow As Integer
Dim strCol As Integer

Set objSheet = Excel.Sheets
intRow = ActiveCell.Row 'Start writing in active row
strCol = ActiveCell.Column 'Start writing in active column

For Each objSheet In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
Cells(intRow, strCol).Select
ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection, Address:="", SubAddress:= _
objSheet.Name & "!A1", TextToDisplay:=objSheet.Name
intRow = intRow + 1
End Sub

I'm not familiar with how to write VBA code and would like some assistance in writing the script correctly.

Vlookup With Changing Column Index Numbers

Sep 25, 2009

I've 2 worksheets, Summary and Sales. I need to get the total sales figure from the "Sales" worksheet onto the Summary worksheet. Sales data are pasted onto the worksheet monthly. Tried using vlookup but problem is, the column containing the total sales figure may vary and I need to update the vlookup formula. Another problem is that sometimes the Total sales (the lookup value) is not in the first column. Tried using the Index and Match combo but cannot get it to work. I've attached a simple mock up to hopefully illustrate my case better. I believe the experts in this forum should find this rather easy!

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....

Changing File Names Within Worksheets

Mar 25, 2009

my formula is as follows: =(VLOOKUP(A7,'[Monthly AR Analysis - Feb09.xls]AR - Current'!$A$1:$I$153,8,FALSE)). I will be using this for formula on about 15 different worksheets ... my issue is the file name changes every month and currently I have to go in and do a find and replace, I would like to have one main page where I could change the file name month and it will change all the rest.

ie: Monthly AR Analysis - Feb09.xls next month changes to Monthly AR Analysis - Mar09.xls .... So basically each month I want it to pick up the new file that has been saved with the new name. So what I would want is to be able to have a cell that I could change the Feb09 to Mar09 and then it would do the same to all the worksheets. I attempted to use CONCATENATE to change file name and it worked but will not work within the Vlookup.

INDEX And MATCH Function Using Dynamic Worksheet Names

However here's the problem, my workbook contains a good handful of worksheets each named to reflect the certificate on the page, i need the drop down list to work on each tab. problem is when i setup the index/match function it requires a specific sheet name to make it work i.e.


However what i need it to do is reference the worksheet name, as new ones get added and names may change, something like


However this doesn't work, i do have a cell on each page that holds the Sheet name using the function:

Names Changing In Pivot Table Macro

Jul 19, 2013

I am running into an error when creating a macro to make a pivot table and sum certain columns. I am fairly certain this is due to the name changing to PivotTable2, 3, 4, etc. each time. Is there a way to make the name stagnent so when a table is created in the macro it doesn't error out the formulas? I have an example below.


ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Create(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _

VBA Macro - VLookup From 2 Workbooks With Changing Names

I was thinking I wanted her to close excel completely, then run them in a specific order and do the vlookups based of Index Numbers.

I can do the entire macro except for the syntax of the vlookup. I think if i write what I need, you guys could put it in proper syntax:

Index Match - Formula Changing If Source Range Modified

Apr 24, 2014

I am trying to monitor the status of a cell on another sheet and autopopulate a cell depending on that information. The formula works well until I give the spreadsheet to a 3rd party and the formula ranges change after they paste new data to the source sheet. I have tried locking and password the formula cells but they change range regardless!

Here is the formula from the first cell.

[Code] ......

It scans for a number in an adjacent cell. If the number is present on the sheet 'Test', it autopopulates the cell with a string from the source sheet. The cell remains blank until there is data present.

If I cut data from row 6 and paste it to row 17, the formula cahnges itself to:

[Code] ........

How I can lock down this formula so that the ranges remain the same i.e. $AT$6:$AT$26, despite changes on the source sheet? I have tried F4 to toggle relative and absolute references and this has made no difference.

Changing Workbook That Is Looked Up On INDEX Function As Formula Dragged Down

Dec 13, 2013

I have a variety of different order forms in workbooks titled IT1314-0001, IT1314-0002, IT1314-0003...etc... They're all stored in the same location, but they need to be on different workbooks as each workbook is sent as an order form to a different organization, for that organization to fill in. All of the order forms have the same layout, but the user will input different information onto them.

In a summary workbook of all of these Order Forms, I need to be able to drag down an INDEX formula, such that the INDEX looks in a different workbook (the next workbook in the sequence) with each row. As you go down the rows, it should look like;

INDEX(‘[IT1314-0001.xlsPARTS A & B!$D$5:$E$5, 1, 1)
INDEX(‘[IT1314-0002.xlsPARTS A & B!$D$5:$E$5, 1, 1)
INDEX(‘[IT1314-0003.xlsPARTS A & B!$D$5:$E$5, 1, 1)
INDEX(‘[IT1314-0004.xlsPARTS A & B!$D$5:$E$5, 1, 1)

Can this be done without VBA?
