Hyperlinking Multiple Cells Based On Another Cell Contents

Feb 23, 2012

I have just started to learn how to use vba in microsoft excel. Over the past few days i have been creating a drawing register and have incorporated multiple routines based on searching this forum. Up until this point i have foud everything i needed on this forum, but now i cannot work out how to creat a routine that does the below.

The setup
*I have a folder called Zircon Plant
*That folder contains 3 folders 01. Superseded, 02. PDFs and 03. Documentation (the 01. Sup...etc. is the actual folder name, the 01, 02 and 03 isnt distinguishing the 3 folders)
*The Register is located in 03. Documentation
*The PDFs i want to hyperlink to are located in 02. PDFs

What i want to do
*i have 2000 rows of drawing names
*the drawing name in excel is spread over 5 side by side cells on each row (rows 21 - 2020) so for example the first row the information is in cells (H21, I21, J21, K21 ,L21)
*the cells i want to contain hyperlinks are V21 - V2020

so what i want is when excel opens up (i already have another script running at startup so i will be placing this after the other startup routine i have) i want it to search in folder 02. PDFs using the contents in (for example the first row (21) and colums HIJKL contain (H21)4CP(I21)-(J21)D(K21)-(L21)55000) each row and combine those cell contents to find the file name 4CP-D-55000.pdf. I then want it to go down every row until row 2020 untill it has added all pdfs.

(The second row is (H22)4CP(I221)-(J221)D(K221)-(L21)55001.....file name would be 4CP-D-55001.....third row would be 4CP-D-55002 etc...)

If such a pdf with that name doesnt exist, i want the cell (for example v21) to read "PDF not available"

based on a search here i have been able to do this for 1 cell, but dont want to do 2000 seperate routines. the current routine i have for it to work on one cell is

' Select PDF range
ActiveSheet.Range("u21").Select
' Promt PDF Hyperlinking
ActiveCell.Hyperlinks.Add ActiveCell, "I:DraftingAs Built4CP - PinkenbaE - ElectricallZircon Plant02. PDFs4CP-D-55000.pdf"

I also have multiple sheets. the first sheet is D - Documentation. I will eventually copy this routine 4 more times as i will be able to work out how to apply it to the other sheets

Adding Multiple Row Contents Based On The Content Of A Single Cell

May 30, 2007

Been trying to work this one out and have ended up banging my head against the wall.

Basically I have a spreadsheet, in the first column is the person's name, in the secon which team they are in and following this a cell for each day of the month with their availability.

The team name is a selection from a list, the availability is 1-6 (different levels of availability)

I'm trying to do subtotals at the bottom for each separate team, so the very last row each of the cells for each is added up:

Name Team 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th etc.
Mr X ___1st___1______2__1
Mr Y ___2nd_______2________5__5__5
Mr Z ___1st___1____________3__3__3

Total 1st: 2 2 1 3 3 3
Total 2nd: 2 5 5 5

So basically the formula in the last row goes along the lines of:

Add each cell in the column IF the team name = 1st

Vba Cell Control Based On The Cells Contents

Sep 11, 2009

Is it possible to place formulas in vba to control cells based on the cells contents.

A2 will be the the price of an item excluding vat and b2 will be the price of an item including vat

What i want to achieve is if I put a figure into a2 b2 then multiplies a2 by 1.15 to reflect the price including vat. If this is achievable I then want to reverse the proceedure so if I put the price including VAT into b2 a2 divides b2 by 1.15 to reflect the price exc. VAT.#

if all of the above is clear and possible I would like to know if it is easily possible to copy the workings for a3, 4 ,5 ,6 etc and b3, 4, 5, 6 etc.

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.

Copy Row Based On Contents Of 2 Different Cells.

Apr 5, 2009

I would like to do now would be to only copy the rows that also contain the word sold in column C. I guess that I could do this in two stages, first copying the rows based on the year then copy again based on the word sold in column C. It would be nicer to make a slight modification to my code and do it all in one step.

Add Cells Based On Contents Of Cells In Another Column

Feb 15, 2008

I have a spreadsheet that has columns stating both status and then further to the right in the row, currency totals. There are only two status options, Stocked and On Order. I need to add the total currency amounts based on this other column's listing and it must change if status changes.

(Put simpler:
Column A lists Stocked or On Order and Column B is the currency tied up in that row.
I need to make totals for the cells in column B based on the status listed in Column A and it must change when Column A is changed. This should result in two totals, one for Stock Status Currency and one for On Order Curreny)

Conditional Formatting Based On Another Cells Contents?

Sep 19, 2012

I'd like to format (colour fill) C1 when H1 contains the word "Bills"

I've tried to "use a formula to determine which cells to format" but it keeps using absolute references ($H$1).

Ideally I'd like to apply the "format" to the entire column C.

I did think I'd be able to use OFFSET but it's not working.

Filter Out Duplicate Based On Contents In 2 Cells On Same Row

Aug 29, 2008

I have data contained in 4 columns. Column A is name, Column B is ID, Column C is Company, Column D is amount. There are duplicate names in column A and duplicate ID's in column B (ID's have correspending Company Names in Column C). I want to have a list so that this combination shows up only once, and then the amount next to it will be the sum of all.

Example:

Go To Range Based On Cells Contents/Text

Sep 5, 2006

I am just learning VBA. I need to move to a cell location that is named in a range. As follows:

The cell "Sheet2!A1" has a formula that results in "Sheet1!B3". I would like my VBA code to read that cell and select Sheet1!B3. When using something like:

Application.GoTo Range("Sheet2!A1")

I end up of course at Sheet!2A1. I want to end up at Sheet1!B3 or wherever the cell reads at the time the code is read and operated on.

Conditional Formatting - Based On Another Cells Contents

Apr 27, 2007

I have a worksheet that I've applied conditional formatting to which works very nicely apart from when I use the formatting and apply it to a cell based on the contents of another.

What I don't understand is when I put a formula in cell b1 to read =$a1="yes" and format accordingly it works. So when I type in "YES" in to cell a1 ,cell b1 is highlighted. When I type in "NO" the B1 cell isn't highlighted which is what i would expect. IF however I delete what ever is in cell A1 the cell B1 is still highlighted.

Copy Only Part Of Cells Contents Based On Condition?

Jul 6, 2014

I will have 2 columns. In column B, will be a list of invoice numbers. Now each one starts with the "job number" (Ex. 51APGC01) then a dash and unique number per invoice. (Ex. 51APGC01-01)

In column A, will be a list of Purchase Order numbers sent by the customer so we can bill. Now, sometimes we get one PO for multiple invoices, (Ex. 03, 05, 06, 07.....)

What I am looking to do, is when I get these PO's, I enter them in and then I print a report for our billing Dept. The way the output line (cell) will read, is Job Number, then each unique number: (51APGC01-03, 05, 06, 07)

There are multiple jobs and each one has it's own report, so the job number will be dynamic and defined else where in the workbook. I can define that. It's just getting the numbers after the "-" and putting them in only.

Merging Cells Contents Based On Unique Identifiers

Feb 22, 2010

Iím having some problems writing a macro,

I have a spreadsheet with 2 columns. The first column is the index number (unique identifier) of the second columnís data that will repeat itself as many rows as needed. Let me try to exemplify it:

Column A (index)Column B (text)
1 AAA
1 BBB
1 CCC
2 DDD
2 EEE
3 FFF
3 GGG
3 HHH
3 III

Iím trying to write a macro that will merge the text of each identifier in the first row it appears. The result Iím looking for is:

Column A (index)Column B (text)
1AAA
BBB
CCC
2DDD
EEE
3FFF
GGG
HHH
III

I already know how to make the merge, but I canít get the logic to make it go through each row and merge the contents, since the number or rows for each identifier varies.

Clear Contents Of Cells Based On Data Validation Selection

Apr 13, 2012

I am trying to find something that would allow me to have a spreadsheet clear the contents of a certain cell based on the selection made from a data validation list which resides on the same row. This can best be described with an example.

The user selects anything but " " or "none" from the validation list, which for this example resides in C5, would trigger code to clear the contents, if any, in AA5. If " " or "none" is chosen the value remains.

This capability should be available for each row through 100.

Returning String From One Cell Based Upon Multiple Cells

May 22, 2013

I need to return the specific text of a cell based upon the text in multiple cells.

Worksheet as follows:

Asphalt Sub:
BLDG1-Backwash 1
*BLDG1*
*Sub*
BLDG1-Backwash 1 OverEx
*BLDG2*
*Sub*

[Code].....

I have three columns thus far. I need to add another column and search all items in Column A using the criteria in Columns B and C. For instance I need to search for BLDG1-Backwash Sub: and place it into column D using the criteria in Columns B and C.

If possible, I would also like to remove both the words, BLDG1 and Sub from the result so then it only shows "Backwash".

My spreadsheet is much larger than this and I have muliple buildings I am dealing with, sometimes 30-40.

Get A Cell To Look At A Row Based On Contents

Dec 24, 2008

I want to have a cell that looks at another cell based on a number that is in another cell. So imagine if you will: A1 contains the number 25. A2 contains the formula I can't work out. I want it to look at the row that is the number contained in cell A1, so in this case it would look at row 25.

Now I want to narrow it down further to a cell in that row but this will be a constant so lets say column F. So if A1=25 then A2 would display what ever is in F25. If cell A1 were 16 it would display the contents of F16 etc. The best I got was something like =IF(A1=>1,(F(A1))) but obviously that is wrong as it doesn't work.

Workaround For Public Variable Bug: Creates Different Cell Colors Based Upon The Cell Contents

Oct 15, 2008

I am in the process of reformatting an excel workbook to act as a review tool for different factors in a process. Part of my redesign includes the use of coding that creates different cell colors based upon the cell contents. The new workbooks will be used to handle existing data for this year. I have developed a process macro to open an existing workbook and copy and transfer the original data worksheet into the newly formatted workbook. The data gets transferred to the new worksheet and the resulting workbook is renamed and saved, Heres'' the rub... the newly saved workbook is missing all of the coding for the worksheets... apparently this is a MS bug.

Has anyone figured a workaround for this. One thought I had is to open both( new and old )workbooks and rather than move/copy , i would transfer the data using cell references.

Automatically Update A Protected Cell Based On Contents Of An Unprotected Cell

Apr 30, 2009

I am trying to find some VBA that will allow protected cells to be updated when a user enters or selects data in other cells.

For example:

Cell 'A1' starts out blank.
Cell 'B1' has a drop down to select specific items.
Cell 'C1' is the date of the order and is a locked cell.
Cell 'D1' is the date of completion and is a locked cell.
The worksheet is protected to prevent direct changes to cells C1 and D1.

If a user enters any information in A1, then C1 displays the current date.
If a user selects 'Complete' from the drop-down list in B1, then D1 displays the current date. Both of these actions are independant of one another. This format is the same for every cell in the 4 columns indicated above. I thought I was able to do this in another spreadsheet I created a year or so ago but I have not been able to figure out what I did and I do not have the spreadsheet to look at.
