Importing Formula / Code From One Cell To Another To Affect Multiple Cells?

Mar 5, 2014

The idea is to select an item i one cell, which in return will affect the following cells with the nutritional values. So far so good. I would then like, if a given amount is entered, it calculates the values.

A food item is typed in Cell A. The following cells will Index Match a table (on a different sheet), importing calculation formulas based on the food items nutritional value (Cells C - G). If an amount is typed in Cell B (i.e. 100 grams) the following cells will then calculate the correct nutritional values.

i learned to make an INDEX MATCH function, so that when i type "Gulerod" or something like that, the following cells import information from the Table tab... When the table contains fixed values, this works just fine. However - i tried to make the table (the cells) with calculation formulas (i.e. =SUM(4*B3))... this means the values in the tables are 0 untill a value is typed in B3 (in this example).

... however when i do the Index Match in my main tab, only the "0"'s are imported, and no matter what value i enter in B3 in the main tab, the following cells remains with the fixed value 0.

... so my question is - is it even possible to have the Index Match function import the calculation formula from the table and have it work in the main tab as well? Or is there any other way to make this work in Excel? Basically - to have the main sheet find the relevant data to use for calculation on a different tab/sheet, and then do the actually calculations on the main tab/sheet.

How To Get Drop Down List Value To Affect Multiple Cells

Sep 7, 2009

I have a rather simple problem (tough for me!). I am setting up a food log. I would like to have one column with common food items that I have in a drop down list. The list would be about 20+ things. The other columns would have relevant nutritional info such as calories, fat, carbs, etc.

The problem is how do I make the values in the other columns change depending on which food item I pick from the drop down list?

For example, if I choose bread from the list, how would I get the columns for carbs and calories to change accordingly.

The IF function would be too hard because I couldn't nest 20+ IF functions in the formula for each cell. Also, the drop down list would change as my diet changes, possibly reaching 50+ things.

Also, I would like to manually enter a serving size that would alter the nutritional values in each column (for example 0.5*Calories or Carbs).

It seems so simple in my head, but I can't figure out how to get it to work.

Affect Of Filtering On Formula Recalculation?

Feb 9, 2012

I have many formulas on my (inherited) spreadsheet in row 4 through 10000 Then in row 2 there are sumproduct and subtotal formulas

When I hide and show rows only the formulas in row 2 need to be recalculated. Yet, it recalculates ALL formulas

Is there any way to control which formulas get recalculated or is it locked to recalculate all of them

It really slows down the process

Add Formula To Cell To Equal Product Of 2 Other Cells Via Macro Code

Apr 18, 2008

I'm trying to set a cell on one sheet to be equal to the product of two cells on another sheet. The problem is that one of the cells on the other page is dependent on the variable T. This is what I've got and it's giving me errors

Worksheets("Output").Range("K14").Formula = "Worksheets("Calcs").Range("D17")*worksheets("Calcs").Range("D17").Offset(10+T,0)"

When I record a macro it gives me this, but again, I need the last cell in terms of "T"

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=Calcs!R[3]C[-7]*Calcs!R[14]C[-7]"

Multiple Formula In One Cell / Merging Cells?

Nov 7, 2013

I want to create a string of 0's and 1's in the same cell in excel.

I used the function =randbetween(0,1) to generate 1's and 0's. Just wondered if there is a way to repeat this multiple times in same cell so it looks like 1 0 1 0 0 1 etc... as an example. Or a way to merge cells?

VBA Code For Opening / Importing?

Jun 27, 2013

I have a workbook with a button that will run a macro to open files and import sheets based on if the user checked the box. Everything works perfectly EXCEPT for the importing of the sheets from newly opened workbook.

Here is what I want the code to do:

1. if the box is checked then open the file
2. Copy (import) the first sheet in the newly opened workbook and put it before the 1st sheet.
3. Close the workbook that the sheet was copied from and do not save changes
4. active the workbook that has the newly imported sheet.

And here is what i have thus far:

Sub OpenFiles()
Dim Folderpath As String
Dim cell As Range
Dim r, LRow As Single
Dim Dbook As Workbook
Set Dbook = ActiveWorkbook


After stepping through it, the problem is here:

Workbooks.Open Filename:=Folderpath & Range("B" & r).Value
Source = Range("B" & r)
Sheets(1).Copy Before:=Workbooks("CompletionWorksheet.xlsm").Sheets(1)
'How the hell do I close this ^ workbook
ActiveWorkbook.Close savechanges:=False 'This closes the workbook where the sheet was copied to

Not sure what to do.

Code Continues Before Query Is Done Importing

Jul 3, 2007

with code in which I import data from the web via a query then try to use end(xlUp).row to find the last row of the query. Right now, the code continues while the worksheet still displays "Getting Data...", so the last row always comes out as row 1. After the data is finished importing, however, the last row is most definitely not 1.

If I put a break point after the query and wait for the data to finish importing, then let the code finish, it runs perfectly. But how can I have the code automatically wait to move on until the data is finished importing?

Importing Multiple Txt Files

Feb 27, 2008

I have part of macro to import a txt file into excel but it is not working as it should. It is giving me a message "This file is not a recognizable format" but its just a normal txt file. Also after it gives me this warning it will open in excel and with every new txt file it gives me this warning and after it opens it.

The code I am using is:

Sub su()
Dim oWbk As Workbook
Dim sFil As String
Dim sPath As String
sPath = "C:Historical" 'location of files
ChDir sPath
sFil = Dir("*.txt") 'change or add formats
Do While sFil "" 'will start LOOP until all files in folder sPath have been looped through Set oWbk = Workbooks.Open(sPath & "" & sFil) 'opens the file
Workbooks.OpenText (sPath & "" & sFil), Comma:=True, DataType:=xlDelimited
' do something
sFil = Dir
Loop ' End of LOOP
End Sub

In this line it gives me Runtime error 1004 Method 'Opentext' of object workbook failed:
Workbooks.OpenText (sPath & "" & sFil), Comma:=True, DataType:=xlDelimited

VBA Code To Compare Cells To Multiple Cells

Aug 24, 2012

So I have a sheet with 600 or so rows of data on a sheet called "Agent_Summary". On another sheet in the same workbook I have a list 20 peoples names. I am trying to find a way to look at the 600 or so lines on the Agent_Summary in column A and see if the name in that cell matches any of the 20 names from the "Team" Sheet. If the name on Agent_Summary is not found on the "Team" sheet then it clears the contents of that cell and moves on. Then it comes back and Deletes the blank rows. I can make it look for any 1 of the 20 names and the code works fine. How do I turn it into something that will look for any of the 20 names?

Here is my code to look for 1 of the 20 names that works great.

Sub Clean_up_Agent_Summary()
Dim Cell As Range
Dim R As Long
Dim RE As Object
Dim Rng As Range
Set Rng = Worksheets("Agent_Summary").Range("A5:A600")
Set RE = CreateObject("VBScript.RegExp")


"Worksheets("Team").Range("A5")" is where my 1 name is and the rest are just below that. I am thinking some kind of an Array but I am stuck on getting that set up and working right.

Importing Multiple CSV Files Into Workbook

Dec 3, 2012

I have a workbook that contains over 100 worksheets with stock data and price information. It uses a screenscraper to update the workbook each day with the latest day's price, and then exports each of these .csv files into a local directory. The macro for this is working. In effect it is generating a price history file automatically in my absence for me that can be read by charting software.

What I would like though is a macro to loopthrough and backfill missing price histories on each worksheet. I have a source of .csv price histories already, but would like to avoid having to cut and paste each of the 105 files manually, as it may become a regular occurence.

Each worksheet that requires backfilling has the stock code in the cell "A2", so that can be used to search for the filename Range("A2") & ".csv"

This is as far as I have got - however it results in a runtime error (91) Object variable or With block variable not set, pointing to this line:-

VB: Workbooks.Open Filename:="D:FinancialData SheetsSpreadsheetsPension" & Ws.Range("A2").Value & ".csv"

Sub BackFillData()
Dim Ws As Worksheet
For i = 1 To 105
ActiveSheet.Name = "Fund" & i

[Code] ......

Importing Multiple CSV Files Into One Workbook

Jun 15, 2013

I am troubleshooting my macro that seems to cause a data shift with the Letter "F" when I import multiple CSV files into one spreadsheet. When I go outside of the macro and record a macro and import the CSV into a workbook it works perfectly fine. But there must be something in this code that is causing the shift:

Private Declare Function SetCurrentDirectoryA Lib _
"kernel32" (ByVal lpPathName As String) As Long
Public Function ChDirNet(szPath As String) As Boolean
Dim lReturn As Long
lReturn = SetCurrentDirectoryA(szPath)

[Code] ....

I have attached an excel workbook that shows how the macro imports vs. a regular import. Why "F" is causing a shift in the data.

Importing Multiple Text Files

Apr 16, 2008

This is a great bit of code (I found), to import multiple text files.

I have one small issue -

currently it imports with each file going to a new column, like this: text file1 A1:A4, txt file2 B1:B4, txt file3 C1:C4 etc etc

And eventually i risk running out of columns because I'm working with a lot of text files.

Can someone tell me what to do to modify this code so it imports like this? :
text file1 A1:D1, txt file2 A2:D2, txt file3 A3:D3 ETC ETC

.e.g. first file imports across row1, second file across row2 etc

Sub test2()
Dim myDir As String, fn As String, ff As Integer, txt As String
Dim delim As String, n As Long, b(), flg As Boolean, x, t As Integer
myDir = "\BP1MELIS001SHARED_DATAEVERYONESolutions IntranetPriceMasterlogs" '

Importing Macros Into Multiple Spreadsheets

Apr 19, 2007

Is there a way to automate the importing of macros into a list of files ? I have a number of files that I want to add some code to and was wondering if this could be automated as opposed to adding the code to each file manually as it's going to be a regular job.

I've written a routine to loop through the list of files and open them, I just want to know how, if possible, i can automatically import the required macros.

Importing Multiple Text Files Into One Workbook

Apr 26, 2007

I am using excel 2003. I have more than 500 text file which are result of some numerical analysis. I have another bunches of the same file number. I can record and play around with macro.

What I want to do is
-copy selected cells from imported text file in excel and paste in new or in first opened excel file. I have recorded macro for one file including importing from text to excell, copy and paste the selected file (look the macro below). But I have more than 500 files and I want to do the macro the same thing for each file in one excell file. Do i have to make one macro for each file??, that takes much more time than manual import and copy paste. The cell position and range to copy is the same, but have to be pasted in new row (in one excel summery file). The file name of each text file is different and all are in the same folder.

Sub text_to_excel()

Workbooks.OpenText Filename:= _
