# 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).

## Increment Formula Row Number Filling Across Columns

Aug 24, 2007

I am trying to increment a row when i copy it across columns. I have searched for a couple hours on how to do this, but I have not come up with a solution that I can understand that works for my situation.

I found this page, but I guess I am too novice to comprehend it. [url]

I would like the number in this formula to increment when i copy it to the adjacent column.

This formula is in B178.

=IF(B8="x",A8,"")

So in C178 I want it to be

=IF(B9="x",A9,"")

## Increment Part Criteria Of Formula When Dragging/Copying

Sep 22, 2007

As per this screenshot,

I am trying to work out a method which will allow me to drag the forumula which is in cell B13 from B13:B17, and have in increase the date serial number by one for each row by which it descends.

In other words I want to drag the formula down to, say B14, and have it increase the date serial to = that which is in cell A14.

[the obvious benefit of being able to do this is that I don't have to manually adjust the date serial in each cell on each new row]

## 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.

## Index Row Reference When Filling Formula Across Columns

Oct 16, 2013

In Column A, starting in row 8, I have a list of part nos. This list can be any number of rows long.

Further down the sheet, I want to put that same list into a horizontal array. I currently have this formula in the first column. It will, of course, pull the value from the 1st row.

=IF(ISBLANK(A8),"",A8)

However, when I fill across all of my columns, it changes the Cell reference to B8, C8, etc. whereas I need it to change to A9, A10, etc.

Writing a formula that will index the ROW reference as I fill across?

## 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 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 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 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[*]"

## Copying A Formula Without Changing A Part Of The Reference

Aug 4, 2009

I have this If statement on one of the cells

=IF(A7=AQ6,AQ32,IF(A7=AR6,AQ32,IF(A7=AS6,AQ32,IF(A7=AT6,AQ30,IF(A7=AU6,AQ29,IF(A7=AV6,AQ33,IF(A7=AW6 ,AQ33,IF(A7=AX6,AQ31,""))))))))

If I want to change only A7 to A8, A9, A10 without changing the other parts of the formula, how do I do that. I need to copy this formula in about 300 rows.

## Reference Part Workbook Name In Formula From Date In Cell

Feb 20, 2008

i want to return a value from a cell in another workbook where part of the the workbook name is determined by a date set on the current open sheet.

so on my open sheet i have a cell where the user can change the date and i want the below formula to then use the date to look at the relevant file.

any ideas would be appreciated. know how to do this in VBA but no clue with formulas.

what i am trying to do is concatenate part of a file name and a cell value which contans a date

=VLOOKUP(A4,[accountsummary17022008.xls]Sheet1!\$A:\$B,2,FALSE)

## Increment Numeric Part Of Alphanumeric Text

Aug 16, 2007

I have a cell with a value of, Text 1 and in the next field I want it to display Text 2, then text 3 and so on.

Is there any way of doing this? I guess I am looking for something like a1+1, just a shame it doesn't work.

## Index Row Reference Not Filling Down?

Jul 22, 2014

I have a workbook where one worksheet is referencing cells from another worksheet. I need every third cell to pull from every single cell on the other sheet.

I have found on other threads that =INDEX('WORKSHEET!B:B, 1*(ROW(\$B\$4:\$B\$4)+1)) worked. However when I filled down it wont increase the row reference.

ie.

=INDEX('WORKSHEET!B:B, 1*(ROW(\$B\$4:\$B\$4)+1))
=INDEX('WORKSHEET!B:B, 1*(ROW(\$B\$4:\$B\$4)+2))
=INDEX('WORKSHEET!B:B, 1*(ROW(\$B\$4:\$B\$4)+3))

The other threads mentioned it should fill down fine, but not working for me.

## Stepped Increment For Reference

Mar 3, 2009

If I ask anyone in my office they can easily tell me what the next line should be in this list. I can't figure out how to do it in Excel

=A5
=A10
=A15
?

So, obviously the cells are referencing column A and increasing by 5. That's it, nothing fancy. I have 5,000 cells to fill and it's increasing by 13 instead of 5 so I can't just do it by hand. If I highlight the first 3 and then drag down the next cell would say A8. Not even sure how they get that.

## Filling Series - By Cell Reference

Sep 16, 2006

I have two obscure Files and I want certain information from each file.

I started by importing the data on seperate worksheets.

and I wanted to make a table basically summerizing the info on a third worksheet

On a third Worksheet i wanted to reference from those files in a table as i mentioned. So i started referencing the cells that contain the data for the first line and second line and i wanted to fill the series so I wouldn't have to type the info into Excel (like =C8)

uhm to summerize the following::

the two files are a players file (which has there specific team and player name) and a stats file (which has there corresponding stats). So i have the following

Year Team League GP G A Pts PIM +/-
2011-12 Swift Current Broncos WHL 82 5 22 27 128 10

the cell references are

for the stats worksheet

C8, D8, E8, J9, I9 (GP,G,A,PIM,+/-) Pts is just an add

and the next line would be 25 plus the cell references (so like C33)

i would like to fill it all the way down the page for about 1000 players

but it didn't work for me - the next line was C12, C27 etc...

## Absolute Cell Reference :: Alpha Characters To Increment

Nov 3, 2009

I've got a worksheet here that i need to update every week. The problem i'm having is that i have a table of values that's drawing values in from another larger table. For example in B9 the cell is referenceing the I2 cell in another sheet. When i pull down the formula in B9 i want the cell below to reference J2 and so on. In other words, I only want the alpha characters to increment. Tried messing around with dollar signs but it doesn't seem to be doing what i want.

## 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.

## 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

## Reference Row With Variable As Part Of

Sep 1, 2007

Dim vCriteria3 As String
vCriteria3 = ActiveCell.Text
Sheets("CUSTOMER OVR REVIEW").Select
Rows("25:25").Select
Selection.Copy
Rows("26:" & vCriteria3).Select
ActiveSheet.Paste

it hits the

Rows("26:" & vCriteria3).Select

and crasses with a "incorrect type" mesage. am i storing this into memory incorrectly? how do i fix it? the function is intended to use a variable to paste over x amount of rows.

## Reference Cell From Another Workbook With Part Of Location?

Feb 20, 2014

I have the following formula/array:

='fake folder location[2013-004.xlsx]MgmtRpt'!\$A\$4

Now this works perfectly fine, but I am wondering if it is possible to replace 2013-004 so that it reads the text from a cell on that sheet to complete the file name.

Example:

A
B

1
2013-004
='fake folder location[2013-004.xlsx]MgmtRpt'!\$A\$4

I want to replace the 2013-004 in B1 with text from A1. I have tried multiple methods but it just always assumes it is part of the file name or breaks the formula.

## Is It Possible To Use Cell Reference As Part Of Page Headers

Jan 5, 2007

I would like to know if there is an option available which will allow me to reference a cell on the active sheet and print it as part of the sheet header. The contents of this cell change often so the header should also reflect the change when the sheet is printed. Also, this header should be alinged in the center.

## Cell Text As Part Of External Reference

Apr 2, 2007

I am building a summary spreadsheet which will bring in a number of values from other spreadsheets located in folders on a network. Each set of external references will return the same cells, but the location and filenames are different. In order to make it quick and easy to modify the file names and locations without having to change the cell references in my summary sheet i want to type the full reference in a cell as text then use this in another cell as part of the external reference...

## VBA For Filling Column Based On Reference Column?

## Increment Within A Formula

Sep 15, 2008

I have a formula that I'd like to have increment by one, but I can't figure out how to do it.

Here's the formula:
=IF(INDIRECT("'Supervisor'!B"&ROW()-4)="Y",E12-D12,IF(INDIRECT("'Supervisor'!B"&ROW()-4)="N","0",IF(INDIRECT('"Supervisor'!B&ROW()-4)="","0")))

I'd like to have the -4 in the equation increment to -5 when I paste it to the next row without having to fix each one of them.

## Filling A Column With A Formula

Jan 25, 2010

Is there a way to fill all rows of a column with the same formula without having to copy and paste it? My table is huge (about 6000 rows) and I need to perform the same computation on each row.

## Increment Formula With If Statement

Aug 7, 2012

How to increment a formula with an If statement that transforms 2 values in time format and then as long as these two values keep beeing added in the cells the formula keeps active in the column.

I tried to apply the code for all the but this makes my file huge like 20MB!

You can check this on the file, go the "records" sheet, add the time in the "shift start" and "shift end" fields, then the difference value goes to "hours" in the sheet.

## Circular Reference: Cell References In The Formula Refer To The Formula's Result, Creating A Circular Reference

Aug 14, 2006

I have the following formula in cell L51 of all sheets calculating the volume depending on the monthly index that is chosen from the drop down menu in a particular sheet. =If(MIndex=0, SUM(D33:L50),If(MIndex=1,SUM(D34:L50),If(MIndex=2,SUM(D35:L50), 0))). I am getting the following message and I do not understand what it is about.

Microsoft Office Excel cannot calculate a formula. Cell references in the formula refer to the formula's result, creating a circular reference. Try one of the following

## Increment Formula By 1 In Successive Worksheets?

Dec 24, 2012

I have a workbook with 70+ worksheets that pulls data from a single input sheet and I need to increment the cell references in each worksheet by 1. Is there a way to do that without having to manually open each worksheet and change the cell reference.

VB:
'Row 27 on worksheet 1 cell B27' =+Input!\$D3
'Row 27 on worksheet 2 cell B27' =+Input!\$D4
'Row 27 on worksheet 3 cell B27' =+Input!\$D5
Thru worksheet 70
'Row 27 on worksheet 70 cell B27' =+Input!\$D72
