What I am looking to do, instead of telling excel what sheet to go to, is insert this: =INDIRECT(TEXT(Y10,"yyymm")&"!ab1749") to find the matching sheet name to the date that resides in cell Y10.
These both work separately on their own to return the needed value. How do I put them into one formula without telling excel what sheet to go to (1st formula) and specifically what cell to go to (2nd formula) because the cell location may change and I want to completely automate this?
Column A has got random numbers, my formula attemts to capture the count of numbers as specified in B1, is there a way I can nest an indired t formula to mention in cell C1 ( > or < ) so it can look for numbers greater than the number in B1 or lesser as indicated
I am trying to sum the same data across several tabs but I am using information in the column and row headers to find it. For some reason this formula wont work and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
I have a set of data as attached where the productivity of each staff is recorded on a daily basis.However, the cell in which their name is located on each tab of the day of the month might not be the same. I am thankful that the forum actually provided me with the formula located in cell c15.
1)However, I would appreciate if someone could translate what the formula means as I am not so sure what the formula represents.
2)The reason is I would like to calculate how many training days (TR), Medical Leave(ML) and Emergency Leave(EL) for the month of January for each staff.I tried modifying the formula but it didnt work.
3) Is it possible to use a vlookup function for this solution?
It's just a simple percentage calculator for my purposes and works fine as is. However, I want to make it dynamic whereby from a user input the length of the array will increase or decrease, e.g. G9-G11 will become G9-G12 if there are four rows occupied with data. For all my other SUMming equations I have solved this and even came up with what I think is a perfectly valid solution for this one. The one problem is that it doesn't work when combined into a single equation.
My solution for the upper part of the fraction is this:
The formula is =SUMPRODUCT((Group="A")*(Project_Description="Long Term")*(Profile="B")*(INDIRECT(B9)="x"))
B9 through M9 have header text Jan_2012, Feb_2012...Dec_2012. Basically my aim is to get the above formula working before I drag it across so that the named ranges get picked up automatically from the headers.
Jan_2012 thru Dec_2012 are dynamic named ranges using INDEX (and not OFFSET as someone mentioned OFFSET is a volatile function).
The above SUMPRODUCT formula is giving me a #REF! error for the (INDIRECT(B9)="x") part. I know that because when I replace it with (Jan_2012="x") it works fine.
I realized while writing this that it may be because the named range in Jan_2012 is not the same size as that of other arrays. [but it is the same size - I've re-confirmed just now]
I want to do is copy data to my working sheet (say sheet-1) from other worksheetx (say sheet-2, sheet-3). That's easy enough, but I want to be able to indirectly address "sheet-2" or "sheet-3" from a cell in sheet-1.
Look at the attachment. The data under cost A, cost B, cost C is from other sheets in the same workbook. I want to able to type in "sheet-2" in the first column and Excel to automatically copy over the data in columns 2,3,4.
I do not want a VBA solution. I know this can be done with built-in Excel functions because I did it before. Unfortunately, I lost that spreadsheet and I can't recall how it was done. I tried using Indirect function, but it returns a ref# error.
I've tried to find the solution and the options I've tried I just can't get the code or syntax correct...
I have a workbook with 11 sheets in, 10 data sheets, and a summary
On sheet call "CB", I want to select any cell, then, via VBA, on sheet "Summary", in cells b4 to b14, where a4 to a14 have the sheet names, I want to reference the cell I selected, using the Indirect function....
I am using the INDIRECT function to get data from sheets with different names, with the format INDIRECT(SheetName&"!$A$1"), with SheetName defined as the contents of a particular cell which contains the name of the sheet. This works fine with the exception of sheets which have names starting with C01V. Is there something special about these names? If I change the 0 to O or the C to A, B or D, there is no problem. Sheet names C0, C01 also don't have any issues.
I am trying to develop an Indirect Indirect Validation drop down list. Example, Building - Floor - Room, i.e. Select Building from a Validation drop down list. Then based upon the Building selected, select only the Floors applicable to the Building Selected. I am able to achieve this via an Indirect Validation drop down. However, when I attempt to then select the Rooms applicable to the Floor of the Building I selected, I can not produce an Indirect Validation off a previous Indirect Validation.
In the attachment, I have used Plant - Location - Room. I have name ranged the selections, and have used Validations Lists for Plant, and Indirect Validations for Location. The error occurs where I attempt to do an Indirect Validation for Room.
I am running the formula =VALUE(RIGHT(CELL("filename"),15)) to read the tab name in a workbook with 90 sheets. When a new account is opened, the operator inserts a new sheet from a template (which contains the above formula), and labels the tab to the account number. The formula then 'reads' in the account number and performs look-ups based on it.
The problem is that the sheets are only working when the sheet is active. They all seem to reflect the data in the active sheet or give me a #VALUE error. Where am I going wrong? How do I fix the problem?
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.
I am trying to get a conditional total (example below - add up the attendees in E2:E50000 if the criteria in B and C columns are met).
The data is on another sheet from the SUMPRODUCT. I keep getting #VALUE! and looked up possible causes but can't see what I'm doing wrong is it an issue of combining text and numbers? All columns are in the "General" format.
I have sheet 1 which has titles set up in column A. These titles are pulled from Sheet 2 (same column). I also have a date listed at the top of sheet 1 (in the same row as dates in sheet 2, but sheet 2 contains multiple columns for each quarter). I would like to set something up where if the date in sheet 1 matches the date in sheet 2 it pulls the corresponding values from the named rows in sheet 1. I tried using sumproduct but its not working b/c it wont take TEXT. Plus I want it to search across all of the columns, not just one.
Below is sheet 1 and I would like to be able to pull 1Q08 values from sheet 2 (which contains the values for every quarter). This is my formula (the first part is the date, the second is row titles, the third is the value (although its only pulling from one column, it s/b pulling from all) :
Is there someway to fix this, it would be a huge time saver. -------------------------------------- 1Q08 Revenue Direct Costs Gross Profit Indirect Costs Stock Based Compensation Restructure Charge ....................
the 01, 02 ... 020 are the names of the sheets. How can I modify the formula so that I can use other sheet names. Name sheets whose cells I want to be myself in C4 and D4. I tried INDIRECT but I don't know for several sheets.
How could I create a formula that would look up based on month, category, and most importantly an indirect? I have attached a spreadsheet, the indirect is in K13 (and could be Quarter 1, Quarter 2, Quarter 3, Quarter 4) with matching data in "Sheet 2".
I am having some trouble with a handy formula I learned over this forum and its application between two tabs.
Referencing the attached workbook, the formulas in cell C6 & C7 are working for the end range I want, but the first section doesn't want to work. I'm not sure if it has something to do with the quotes (") or not.
