# Increment Formula Reference Relative To Copy To Range

May 26, 2008

In my data validation I have the following formula as the Source: =INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE(\$F\$2," ","_")). I want to be able to copy the cell and paste it into another cell and have the formula update to reference the new cell. Currently the validation is for cell G2 and references F2. I want to be able to copy G2 and paste it in G3-G6 having the formula update so it refrences F3-F6.

## Copy Relative Formula & Use Row Reference From Variable

Mar 5, 2008

I have the following code which Clears the content of a cell. The next thing I want to have happen is to have another cell equal a formula but make that formula relative to its place. The formula is the following =IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(F56,Routes_All,2,0)),0,VLOOKUP(F56,Routes_All,2,0))

I am not sure how to paste it where the row changes depending on where it is pasted. Here is the code that does not work...

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Worksheets("2008 Log").Select
Dim cRow
cRow = ActiveCell.Row '

Cells(cRow, Range("Column_Type_Of_Ride").Column).ClearContents

Cells(cRow, Range("column_duration").Column).value = "=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(F56,Routes_All,2,0)),0,VLOOKUP(F56,Routes_All,2,0))"
End Sub

As you can see, no matter where I paste it it will always refer to row "F". How can I have it refer to row "cRow"?

## Copy Formula With Absolute Reference & Increment Row Number Every X Cells

Mar 25, 2009

I am creating a spreadsheet which creates a bulk of data from a front sheet.

The question is:
Is there a way to automatically copy a fixed formula for 100 cells using one fixed cell reference such as \$A\$1 and then automatically after 100 cells replace \$A\$1 with \$A\$2, after another 100 with \$A\$3 and so on?

Explanation with Example:

For example, Sheet1 contains the words "Green Tree" in Cell A1 and Sheet2 will then place "Green Tree" into 100 different sentences such as:

Plant a Green Tree
Grow a Green Tree today

This would be created with the formula ="Grow a "&'Sheet1'!\$A\$1& " today"

After 100 different variations using the formula I want to change that formula to reference cell A2 on Sheet1.

I know if I place "Red Tree" in Cell A2 and use the formula ="Grow a "&'Sheet1'!\$A\$2& " today" I can do this manually using find and replace for the 100 cells, but I want to do this for 100 different variations of Green Tree to create a 10,000 different sentences so I'd need to find and replace 100 times!

## Increment Formula Reference By X Rows

Aug 31, 2006

If I type the formula below into cell A1 and then drag it to cell A2 it correctly changes \$A6 to \$A7

CELL A1 =Planner!\$A6*(BS8/20)
CELL A2 =Planner!\$A7*(BS9/20)

I would like it to change \$A6 to \$A14 and then to \$A22 as below. In other words adding 8 to the reference each time I drag it down.

CELL A1 =Planner!\$A6*(BS8/20)
CELL A2 =Planner!\$A14*(BS9/20)
CELL A3 =Planner!\$A22*(BS10/20)
CELL A4 ==Planner!\$A30*(BS11/20)

## Increment Formula Row Reference But Not Column

Jan 18, 2008

I'm trying to write a formula that will keep the Column ID static while allowing the Row ID to be reference. Each week my worksheet adds one line and the formula in question is moved one cell to the right and thus the formula cell makes the same move (1, -1). I need the formula to keep the column the same from week to week, while allowing the row to shift downward with the formula. I've attached a sample spreadsheet with the formula I derived. Check out the highlighted formula to familiarize yourself before running.

## Copy Cell Reference From Seperate Sheet To Increment Correctly

Oct 28, 2009

I have two sheets in my workbook, and I am trying to reference one chart's value into the other. (attached)

I have referenced successfully by manually typing in the reference on row 2 for all values on Sheet 1:
Sheet 1 - C2 needs to reference Sheet 2 - B2. (Sheet2!B2) - no problem all the way across to F2. All those values are correct b/c I manually typed in the reference.

The problem comes when I just want to drag over that same formula to increment for the other cells. It's not incrementing the formula like I need it to.

So, Sheet 1, Row 2 shows how the correct values I need to pull over but was done in a manual way. Sheet 1, Row 5 shows how it increments incorrectly when I try to just drag/copy the formula over. What I need is for Sheet 1 - D5 to reference Sheet 2 - C3, but instead if I try and drag to copy the formula instead of manually typing it in, it increments when I drag reference D2 instead of C3.

## How To Count Range Relative To Dynamic Reference

Apr 1, 2014

I am trying to create a formula to count a range relative to a dynamic reference (at least I think that's you would phrase it).

I thought I was on to a winner with this:

Formula:

[Code] .....

But it doesn't seem to accept the : as a legal operator.

I suspect the answer is to use SUMPRODUCT somehow.

## Use Range Of Selected Cells As Relative Reference

Mar 8, 2013

I have a data that is split into multiple cells and needs to concatenated. Unfortunately, the number of columns wherein lies the data varies throughout the workbook. As such, I wanted to select a range of cells, define this range as the reference point for the macro, run the macro, then move on (selecting a different number of columns on the next try).

For example, I have this:

A
B
C
D
E

1

No
Not Very Far

[Code] .....

I want to select cells A1:B1, run a macro concatenated the two columns, then select cells C1:E and run the same macro to get this:

A
B

1
No
Not Very Far

[Code] ........

So far, I have this:

Code:
ActiveCell.Columns("A:A").EntireColumn.Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlToRight, CopyOrigin:=xlFormatFromLeftOrAbove
ActiveCell.Offset(5, 0).Range("A1").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=CONCATENATE(RC[1],RC[2])" '

## Selecting Relative Reference Range For Fill Down?

Dec 11, 2013

I'm trying to use relative references and am have having trouble with selecting a range for the fill down command.

I'd like to copy a formula down in the last column from row 1 to the last row with data. Column D is static so I can always use it to find the last row. The last column will vary; sometimes it might be G another time it might be X. I'm able to get the formula entered into the proper cell but I can't figure out how to select the range for a fill down.

If I was not using relative references and cell X1 always had the formula then Id code it like this:

'*** Find last row with data
Range("D1").Select
LastRow = Range("D65536").End(xlUp).Row
'*** Calculate length of cell in previous column

[Code]....

It's the last range statement that stops me. I haven't come up with a variation that allows me to select a range from the cell on the first row of the last column and select the last row with data for the same column.

## Reference Cells Relative To Activecell In A Range

Nov 4, 2008

I've been trying to get the sum of a range of cells based on their relation to the active cell. Here is the Pseudo
If the SUM of (the cell 2 rows up THROUGH the cell 2 rows up and 2 columns to the left) = 0 then .......

*****end pseudo

I think that activecell.offset is the best way to do it, but I can't figure out how to work that in a range....

Here is my code so far:

Worksheets("Generic SPC").Activate
Worksheets("Generic SPC").Range("c2").Select

'Do for all cells in the row
Do

ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select
If Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(Range( _
ActiveCell.Offset(-2, 0), ActiveCell.Offset(-2, 2))) = 0 Then
ActiveCell.Value = 0
ElseIf Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(Range _
("ActiveCell.Offset(-2, 1), ActiveCell.Offset(-2, 3)")) = 0 Then
ActiveCell.Value = ActiveCell.Offset(-2, 0).Value
Else: ActiveCell.Value = 0
End If

Loop Until IsEmpty(ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1)) = True

******End Code

Range doesn't like activecell.offset. Does anyone know how to do this?

## How To Increment Worksheet Reference When Copying Formula

Feb 26, 2014

I'm having to copy formula on a tabulation sheet that compiles information from other worksheets, and I need to change the formulas in each row to refer to the successive worksheets. Right now I don't know any other way than changing the formula in each cell, and this is taking way too long.

Example:

One cell's formula: =COUNTIF('5'!\$F\$21:\$T\$50,TABULATION!C\$5) In the next row down, I need it be: =COUNTIF('6'!\$F\$21:\$T\$50,TABULATION!C\$5), then =COUNTIF('7'!\$F\$21:\$T\$50,TABULATION!C\$5), and so on.

## Increment Indirect Formula Column Reference

Dec 3, 2007

COPYING indirect formula. When I copy, the lookup reference does not change. My formula is =INDIRECT("'"&\$A247&"'!j106"). When I copy horizontally across cells, I want J106 to increase, ie j107, j108 etc. At the moment it remains at J106 and i have to manually increase the numbers by 1.

How do I change my formula so that the numbers increase automatically?

## Increment Part Of Formula Row Reference When Filling Across

Jan 15, 2008

I have a spreadsheet containing quite a few lookups etc. I am trying to copy a cell across about 10 columns. This has to be done for about 50 different rows on about 20 different sheets, so I am looking for an alteration to the formula to help me rather than typing in the formula over and over;

Say this is in AD6, then in AE6 I would require

='Basic Labour'!AE6*Rates!\$E\$527

and so on across the region to be autofilled...

(It is multiplying the same cell in a different sheet against the 'next row down' in a rates lookup sheet).

## Excel 2003 :: Copy Data And Then Increment Cell Reference From Different Worksheet?

Nov 28, 2013

I've got 2 worksheets in the same workbook.

Sheet 1 contains huge amounts of data - thousands of rows and multiple columns

Sheet 2 - I want to extract the data from sheet 1 column A into sheet 2 column A but only the data from every 21st row.

I want to be able to copy the formula automatically down, otherwise it will take hours to do it manually. So far I can only get the cell reference to increment by 1 each time after copying.

So what I'm trying to achieve is :-

Sheet 2 A1 = Sheet 1 A1
Sheet 2 A2 = Sheet 1 A22
Sheet 2 A3 = Sheet 1 A43

## Relative Cell Reference In Hyperlink Formula

Sep 30, 2013

I have a list of University courses listed in Sheet1. Column A contains a unique course code. If there is a problem with a course, a second worksheet (called Anomalies) contains the same unique course code with description of the problem(s).

What I'm trying to do is: in Sheet 1, create a hyperlink to the relative cell in Sheet 2 that shows the course code and description. I've gotten close, but am not sure how I can do this without having to update two formulas. In short, I can't find a way to combine the two formulas.

What I've done is the following: in Sheet 1, column B, created a HYPERLINK formula, thus: =HYPERLINK("#"&CELL("address",INDIRECT(C54)),A54)

Column C contains a formula to lookup the relative position in the Anomalies worksheet, which can be referenced back to the HYPERLINK formula, thus:
=("Anomalies!A"&MATCH(A54,Anomalies!A:A,0))

Sheet1 is fairly static, but Sheet2 (Anomalies) is being updated all the time. I could just hide column C and then column B will update based on that, but I'd prefer a cleaner solution.

I've tried joining the two formulas, by replacing the INDIRECT part with the second formula, as per the following: HYPERLINK("#"&CELL("address","Anomalies!A"&MATCH(A54,Anomalies!A:A,0)),A54)
but I get an error.

## Syntax Error In VBA Relative Reference Formula

Jan 7, 2014

I was able to get VBA to post this relative reference, which sticks the formula

=DATE(YEAR(\$D2),MONTH(\$D2)+6, DAY(\$D2)+1) into a cell in Col J.

All fine and dandy, works as it should with this formula.

Code:
.Cells(Row, "J").FormulaR1C1 = "=DATE(YEAR(RC4),MONTH(RC4)+6, DAY(RC4)+1)"

However, when I try this with a different formula =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(C2,H2)),"REPEAT","SAFE"), I'm getting a compile error: Expected end of statement with this code:

Code:
.Cells(Row, "I").FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(RC3,RC8)),"REPEAT","SAFE")"

The error message highlights the word REPEAT. I suppose it's something with all the quotes throwing off where compiler thinks the end of the formula should be.

## Relative Reference Formula Not Changing Until Re-Entered

Dec 28, 2006

When I copy the formula to another cell, It doesn't show the result. But when I double click on it, it works. For example

there r values in A1 as "john" & A2 as "Jack". I write formula =A1 in cell B1. It shows "John". Now I copy this formula to B2, it shows "john" instead of "Jack" . When I double click on B2 & enter, it shows "Jack".

## Increment Row And Column In Formula Reference Added With Macro Code

Mar 21, 2008

I have a formula that I want to insert using a macro, so how do I iterate the * values in this line?

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "='Sheet1'!R[*]C[*]"

## Excel 2007 :: Converting Formula From Absolute To Relative Reference?

Aug 13, 2013

I am migrating a bookkeepping spreadsheet from Quattro v12 (c2001) to Excel 2007 and have hit a stone wall over relative 3-D references.

In this workbook each sheet holds data for one month, and this includes some lagging-12-month calculations -- that is, summing a range on a single cell for the preceding 12 sheets (including this one).

Unexpectedly, this formula:
=ISUM('201206:201305'!M6)

gives absolute references, even though I put in no dollar signs after the sheet names. This means it gives the wrong answer when copied to the next sheet to start a new month.

I can find no reference at all to converting the above formula from absolute to relative reference.

## Paste Formula Across Rows But Change Relative Cell Reference To Column From Row

May 26, 2009

I'm working on setting up a chart. The formula I'm using for cell B21 is this: =ROUND(F3,0) & " " & IF(E3<F3 ...

## Copy Formula Across Columns But Increment Row

Jun 1, 2008

I am trying to link cells between two worksheets and am having some difficulty. For instance, in E17, I want the cell to reference cell H41 on sheet 2 and for F17 I want it to reference H42 on sheet 2, etc. However, using the formula =Sheet2!H41 when I cut and paste the formula it changes it to =Sheet2!I41 (ie it changes the column and keeps the row constant). I want to find a way to fill a large amount of cells this way and would prefer to not have to manually change each cell individually. I assume I would use the indirect( and the column( commands but can't seem to figure that one out.

## Excel 2007 :: Convert Absolute Reference Into Relative Reference

Feb 4, 2014

I have encountered some difficulty in modifying a macro I wrote into what I need. I created a macro that searches a column (Column C) for a cell value of, "stop", and then it copies everything above that cell and pastes it onto another sheet. In the sample data set that I was using, "stop" first occurred in cell C541, so the macro copies C1:C540 and pastes it onto another sheet. The problem is that the macro created an absolute reference to C540. What I desire is for the macro to use the 'Find' function to locate the first occurrence of, "stop", offset one cell above that cell, and then reference the active cell (which was positioned by these last two steps) in the range that should be copied. Basically, I'm hoping to have cells C1 through the active cell copied and then pasted onto another sheet.

Code below.

Sub FAIL()

' FAIL Macro

'
Sheets("Reformatted").Select
Columns("C:C").Select
Selection.Find(What:="stop", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt _

## Copy / Paste Formula With Increment Of Six Rows

Apr 8, 2014

I am trying linking it and this what I am trying to do , need a formula for it.

E.g.

Sheet 1 cell J3= Sheet 2 cell K3
Sheet 1 cell J4= Sheet 2 cell K9
Sheet 1 cell J5= Sheet 2 cell K15

## Copy Relative References Whilst Using Range Names

Jul 20, 2006

eg say you call (ie insert a range name) cell A1 "firstcell", B1 "secondcell", then A2 "divisor1" and B2 "divisor2". if you put a formula in A3 which is "=A1/A2", how do you copy and paste this formula into B3 but getting the formula to reference B1/B2 rather than firstcell/divisor1, as it does by default?

## Insert Relative Formula Into Range Via VBA

Nov 25, 2007

I am updating a wsheet via a form using vb to locate next empy row etc.
The issue I have is with the formula's no matter how I try I cannot get the formula to increment with each row. I know I can drag and auto fill on the sheet but I want to use vb if poss. eg

Previous entry to sheet:-
A1=1
B1=2
c1=A1+B1(formula)

New entry via form selecting next empty.
A2=(updated from form.)
B2=(Updated from form.)
C2=(Update code VB)

This is all okay and functional the problem starts from here
I so far have been unable to increment the formula in c1 from A1+B1 to A2+B2 using vb, is this possible or am I just chasing my tail.

## Fill Relative Formula Into Range

Jan 23, 2008

Here is my array code

Dim Values() As String
Dim count As String
count = 9
For count = 9 To 1800
Values(count) = "=IF(AND(E" + count + "<>"""",AH" + count + "<>0),(AH" + count + "/E" + count + ")*100,0)"
count = count + 1
Next

I'd make it a static array but eventually I'm going to have to set it up where I wont know the upper bound.

Here is the other part of my code that I don't know what I'm doing.

If Range("A9") > 0.01 Then
Range("AI9:AI1800") = 0.01
Else
Range("AI9:AI1800") = Values
End If

I keep getting mismatch errors on the count variable, but I need it to be a string so I'm not sure what do here.

## Relative Indirect Formula To SUM Range

Feb 13, 2008

I am using VB in Excel to write a formula for summing a column of numbers that will vary in length. I have been using the Indirect formula and have the start and end cells of the range identified in another location. My problem is, the macro in vb is sending the Indirect formula to the cells containing the start and end points by using relative functions ie. go across 30 columns and up 10 rows to get start cell. I wanted it to just save the cell location of the start and end points.
EG.

VB formula is: "= SUM(INDIRECT(R[-23]C[27]&R3C29):INDIRECT(R[-23]C[27]&R3C30))"
whereas I just want it to read "=Sum(Indirect(C4&D5):INDIRECT(C4&D6))"

where cell C4 gives the column letter and D5 the row number of the start of the range and C4 and D6 give the column letter and row number of the end of the range.

## Formula To Increment Value Based On Time Range

Mar 1, 2014

I am working on a model for a school project. Time is in ColA, the number of events is in ColB.

Each event requires one person to work before and after the event. For example, if we assume that I need one person 30 min before the event, one during the event and one 15 min after the event - ColC shows the number of staff required. I would need a formula to calculate ColC. Basically I want excel to add the values of the rows above and below a value if it is within a specified time range

It gets a little bit more complicated unfortunately, the time requirements need to be dynamic - so one day it is 30 min before the event, but another day it could only be 15 min before but 30 min after the event etc.

I was trying to do this with a SUMIF formulas, but couldn't get it to work.

Col A
Col B
Col C

## Add Relative/Absolute Formula To Range Macro

Sep 22, 2007

using a macro im trying to paste in a sum formula, however this will be pasted onto different sheets and the number of records will be different for each so i cannot use absolute locations. the only constant is that all ranges will start in row I9. when it runs the following code

Range("G" & (ActiveCell.Row)).Select
ActiveCell = "Total"
Range("I" & (ActiveCell.Row)).Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=Sum(I8:R[-1]C)"
Range("J" & (ActiveCell.Row)).Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=Sum(J8:R[-1]C)"
Range("I:J" & (ActiveCell.Row)).Select
Selection.Copy
Range("I4:J4").PasteSpecial

it fills in =SUM('I8':I13) how can i make it insert it without the ' ' around the I9? and how can i select the two cells? (again, cannot be absolute..)

## Macro Code To Insert Relative Formula Into Range

Jun 10, 2008

I have a formula that works fine in the cell of an Excel spreadsheet but I'm struggling to translate it into VBA (your help please).

The cell formula is:

=If(B2="", "", B2 & " (version: " & F2 & ")")

I want to iterate through all rows in my spreadsheet (about 2000) incrementing the relevant row numbers in the formula @ each pass - eg changing B2 -> B3 -> B4 etc and F2 -> F3 -> F4 etc where column 'B' contains the name of the product and column 'F' contains the version number, resulting in "Product Name (version: 123)" per row.

The closest I've got to this is:

Sub LookupNameInColumnA()
Range("A2").Select
Dim i As Integer
For i = 1 To Selection. CurrentRegion.Rows.Count - 1
ActiveCell.Formula = "=IF(B2="""", """", B2 & "" Version: 999"")" ' problem line?
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
Next i
End Sub

This works OK'ish but I want each line to reflect the different data per row. I'm struggling to increment row 'B' and row 'F' in the formula, having tried "B & i + 1" and "F & i + 1" but am getting confused with quotes and concatenating strings within formulas.
