Identify Active Cell And Use The Column To Add Formula To Another Cell

Dec 1, 2009

I have a range of unlocked cells (B5:S10) that users enter data in. This sum of this data is then charted. The formula (sum) in a cell equals zero even when there is no data entered by the user. This zero is then charted.

I need to be able to plot the zeros if the user enters zeros but not plot the zero if the cells are blank.

What I was attempting to do is to use the worksheet change event to add the formulas to a cell so that the chart does not plot the value until something was added.

In my change event I need to know that a cell in the range (B5:S10) was changed and that if it was D7 (for example) that I need a formula enterd in D11 [=SUM(D5:D10)]. If it was I5 then the formula would have to go in I11 [=SUM(I5:I10)].

Identify The Cell Address Of Last Change Made In Sheet Using VBA?

Aug 13, 2012

I am using an event macro to trigger a set of calculations. In the spreadsheet, users have a choice of 3 input cells to work out an answer; these 3 cells work out the same cost from different angles depending on the variables available to the user.

Users only ever need to fill in one of the three cells to work out the answer as the event macro I designed, should (upon input by the user), work out the remaining two input cells using logical arguments.

The macro and calculation work fine, except in the event of users amending a value in an input cell previously updated; in other words, if all 3 cells contain a value and 1 of them is being changed by a user.

The issue: I need the event macro to recognise the location of the last change made by the user in order to determine which 2 of the 3 cells need to recalculate. However, users will invariably press enter or tab etc... upon making changes and this has caused me issues so far.

What I have tried already:

1) running another event macro "on selection change" to record elsewhere in the model all cell selections as and when the user interacts with the model

EFFECT: it made the "on change" event macro very slow and clunky; so I need to avoid
2) declaring a range as set r = activecell.address

EFFECT: this did not work as the active cell's address would in fact be the address on the last cell; e.g. the one selected further to pressing enter (often the one directly below the cell recently changed)

A solution to add to the existing "on change" event macro that identifies the last edited cell

Formula That Returns Address Of The Active Cell

Jan 31, 2009

Is there a formula in Excel that returns the active cell address (ie dynamically). Excel updates the activecell address in the Name Box dynamically as you make a selection but I cannot find a standard formula to access it. I know I can achieve this with code using the selection-change event but this action then disallows use of the Undo button - which I specifically want to avoid. Perhaps there is an add-in available?

Replace Cells In Selection Same As Active Cell

Jul 26, 2007

I need some sort of code to check through a selection of cells in a column and make those cells "zero" whose value is equal to the first cell in the selection. e.g., let's say I have a key value entered in cell e6 = "2.99".

E6 F6 G6 H6 I6 J6
2.99 5.25 2.99 2.00 2.99 5.00

So the macro should be able to check the value in cell E6 (i.e. = 2.99) against values in cells from F6: J6 and any cell having the same value as cell E6 (2.99) should be made = 0. So, in the above example cells G6 & I6 will have "0" value after the code has been executed. I have close to 50 rows going down starting from cell E6. For example, E7 has a value which has to be checked against the range starting from F7 to J7 and so on and so forth.

Extend Selection From Active Cell To Desired Column

Apr 15, 2008

1st post so hope that title isn't too vague.
Using VBA, I have a macro that will find a column based on a week number and add in a new column.
It will then offset the ActiveCell down one.
I now need the macro to SUM all values in that row to the left of the ActiveCell.
My original thought was to use:

ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Range("A1").Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToLeft)).Select

Unfortunately, there are gaps in the data field, blank cells that should count as zero value.
How can I highlight all cells to the left, from whichever column the active cell is in, through to column B?

Excel 2003 :: Highlight Cell On Same Row As Active.cell Whenever Active.cell Changes

Dec 10, 2012

whenever the active cell is within a given range, highlight the cell on the same row in column S (by changing its interior colour). This should occur each time the active cell is changed, whether by cursor keys or mouse. The effect would be similar to the row and column highlights at left and top of the worksheet.

This action should be restricted to one sheet in the workbook.

It's for Excel 2003.

Use Dynamic Formula Driven Text From Cell To Identify And Extract From Specific Cell?

Dec 21, 2013

I paste new data into a sheet of a monthly report I prepare. For this sheet, the # of data rows change (and is unpredictable) every month. I need the value inside a specific cell that dynamcially moves up and down based on the # of rows for that month (because it's below the rows of data).

So I made a formula to identify the exact cell # every month.

Example:

This month the exact cell is F255 in the "Refi" sheet.

So my formula in the "Summary" sheet cell A1 first finds the cell row # only (255) and since it's always column F, in B1 I have

VB:
="F" & (A1)

This outputs "F255" in B1, successfully identifying the target cell.

Now how do I write a formula in C1 to grab the value from whatever cell is named in B1. (For this month, the value in cell F255 from the "Refi" sheet)

Identify Rows Where A Given Cell Is Equal To The Contents Of The Cell Below

Apr 26, 2006

I need to identify rows where the contents of a given cell are equivalent to the cell below. I have managed to get this working based on iterating through the cells and selecting them both for cutting.

However it doesn't work effectively: It seems to be leaving blank lines in the original sheet and further fails after the first execution. I would be grateful for any suggestions on a good method to perform the following operations:
(1)to compare the cell with the cell below
I have used

If cell = cell.Offset(1, 0) Then

(2)to act on the rows for the two connected rows

Sub Test4()

' Loop through rows

Dim TheExtract As String
Dim cell As Range

'Application. ScreenUpdating = False
For Each cell In Worksheets("Sheet 1"). _
Range("A1", Worksheets("Sheet 1").Range("A65536").End(xlUp))
TheExtract = cell
If cell = cell.Offset(1, 0) Then
cell.Rows("1:2").EntireRow.Select
Selection.Cut
Sheets("Test").Select
ActiveCell.Offset(3, 0).Rows("1:1").EntireRow.Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown
End If
Next cell
'Application.ScreenUpdating = True

Identify Characters In A Cell And Put Corresponding Word Into Another Cell

Apr 30, 2014

As you can see, in D5, I have the charactor chain SRG-DC01-RA-xxxxxxx, and in D6 I have the charactor chain SRG-DC43-RA-xxxxx.

With the formula that I have entered, I would have thought that E5 would have generated "Lawnton". I don't want the formula to pick up the SRG, the RA, or the number, just the DCXX component.

This is what I have now:
=IF(OR(ISNUMBER(SEARCH({"DC43","DC01"},D5))),"Erskine Park","Lawnton")

which has not changed a thing from:
=IF(OR(ISNUMBER(SEARCH({"DC43"},D5))),"Erskine Park")

Increment Cell On Selection And Lock/Protect From Re-Selection

Oct 3, 2006

I tried very hard to design a leave roster for user to mark their leave application. The criteria are as follows:

1. 4 applications per date
2. a region of worksheet (i.e. "A2 to H20) will be defined for users to "click" on the cells (within the defined region) to mark their application.
3. once a cell is clicked (i.e. marked), it cannot be altered.
4. each click will automatically increase the total by 1.

I got the following code to deal with the situation but user can still click on any cell outside the region (in fact I fail to define the region).

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim m
ad = Mid(ActiveCell.Address, 2, 1)
m = Range(ad & 24).Value 'here a formula "CountA(A2,A20)" will be place in the cell (24, c).......................

Incorporate Adjacent Cell In Formula W/o Naming Cell Address?

Oct 2, 2009

I searched and I keep finding something that's not quite what I'm looking to do so I think I'm missing something really simple.

Let's say that I want each cell in col b to be the sum of 5 plus whatever value is in the cell adjacent to it on the left (col).

I know that you can just write a formula in each cell like...

b1 will be =sum(a1+5)
b2 will be =sum(a2+5)

... but is there a shortcut so that you don't have to write out the actual cell address for each one?

Meaning - is there a predefined name or something that represents the cell to the left or right so you can just use that instead, allowing you to just copy paste the same formula all the way down the column? Something like...

b1 will be =sum(left+5)
b2 will be =sum(left+5)

... where "left" represents whatever value is in the cell to the left of that particular cell?

Detect Cell Address Of Cell Directly Under Mouse Pointer

Oct 25, 2009

I've a sheet that presents the profitability of sales locations in a geographic layout (similar to Tables in a restaurant), each sales location is a cell, with roughly 1,600 locations presented. Each location is colour coded based on performance / measure, in a basic thermographic way [e.g. dark blue for very poor, solid red for high performance] with users being able to change metrics and re-colour cells accordingly.

The sheet is already information rich, but I'm wanting to detect the cell address directly under the pointer and populate a text box or other cell based on the value in the cell directly below the mouse pointer.

My question is; Is there a simple way of detecting the mouse position on the XL Grid? nb. Want to avoid having to activate cell beneath pointer.

VBA - Find Cell Containing Variable - First Result Above Active Cell?

Dec 26, 2012

Need to find the first cell above the active cell containing any sort of variable (integer, string value, cell fill colour, named range, etc...).

For example, a column contains multiple integer values between 1 and 10. I would like the macro to "locate" a specified value, say 3. Ideally the macro will select the first cell matching this criteria, located above the active cell. Once located, the resulting cell will be added to a range to be copy-pasted to a new worksheet.

I am planning to use this code for various applications in a workbook I am creating. At present the code will be used to locate string values, and cell fill colours. It is also likely this will extend to other types of variables in the future.

I've found information relating to the find function, but nothing specifically to find the first result above the active cell.

Go To First Cell In List That Matches Contents Of Active Cell

Feb 20, 2007

I am just learning to use VBA and this may be the most simple task ever, but I can't figure it out. I've searched for all of the keywords I can think of, but can't find a solution...

I have a list of names in a sheet. Other columns in this sheet contain data like amount charged, amount paid, etc. This sheet must be manually updated (because the other program won't export the information I need) periodically to ensure proper billing/payment application in the original software (all transactions are handled by other people that I don't trust).

I sort the list so that the all names that are the same (ie John Doe) are together.

A short example list looks like this:

Jeremy Apple
John Doe
John Doe
John Doe
Jimmy Kravitz
Jimmy Kravitz

In updating my sheet, I set up a macro that will input todays date in one of the columns for all occurences of that name (so, every row that contains John Doe in column B, column V will have todays date in it).

Currently, in order for my macro to work properly, I have to manually make the activecell the first occurrence of 'John Doe'. When I'm ready to update 'Jimmy Kravitz', I have to select the first occurrence of 'Jimmy Kravitz' and so on.

Here's my question - Is there a way to use a VBA macro to find the first occurrence of 'John Doe' (and automatically 'know' which name I am updating)? Basically, I need a macro that will take the information that is in the cell in column B in the active row, find the first row that has that same name, and make that cell (column B) the active cell...
