Indirect Reference To Closed Workbook

Jan 17, 2008

I am writing a formula in cell "B1" in "December 2007 REVISED BY DAN.xlsm" that will reference cell "X1" in a workbook that has not been created yet.

The way I will tell the formula what the name of the workbook will be is by referencing cell "A1" and adding the extension ".xlsx" to it.

INDIRECT And Named Ranges Referencing Closed Workbook

Oct 4, 2005

I have tried using PULL from Harlan Grove's posts to workaround this but am coming up with #VALUE errors.

Here's what I have:

Column B contains the acct # being referenced e.g. 5230
Column E="_"&Br where r is the row #
Column F=MATCH($B$3,INDIRECT(Er&"Rows")) where _acct#Rows is a named
range referring to an external workbook e.g. _5230Rows
Columns G-R=INDEX(INDIRECT($Er),$Fr,COLUMN(G$6)) where_acct# is a named
range referencing an external workbook e.g. _5230

I thought that INDEX($Er, $Fr, COLUMN(G$6)) should work in Columns G-R however it returns #REF!

I need a solution to replace INDIRECT so I do not have to have both workbooks open together. The named ranges are static, but reference external workbooks.

Indirect Reference To A Separate Workbook

Jun 26, 2014

Just wondering if there is a way to indirectly reference a workbook in a formula?

For example, suppose A1 has the path/filename of the workbook I want to reference.

So in another cell I want to do, say, a VLOOKUP(A2,A1,5), where A2 is the lookup value. This way, if I have multiple workbooks I want to look at, I can specify them all in various cells, and simply have the formula look at the right cell to perform the lookup.

I've played with INDIRECT and get something close if I do

=INDIRECT("'"&A1&"'!A1:AJ1500")

but that just returns the contents of A1 in the target sheet.

Reference Closed Workbook To Activesheet

Oct 13, 2006

how to go about or refer me to how exactly you assign a closed workbook to be active. I know this sounds off and its probably the wrong way to word it so here's my problem. I am developing a macro in Visual Basic 2005 using VB. I have a connection string that looks like this:

Private m_sConn4 As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
"Data Source=C:2005.xls;" & _
"Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=YES"""

What I need to do is connect to it and update which I have done successfully, then save it as 2006.xls. Is there some sort of m_sConn4.SaveAs or something of that nature.

Add COUNTIF To Cell & Reference Closed Workbook

Jul 27, 2007

i'm trying to do a COUNTIF from an open workbook. The range I want for it is in another workbook, which I do not want to have open every time I run the macro.

This is my current
Sub cellLink()
Sheets("Calls In-Out Trend").Range("ag18").Formula = _
"=COUNTIF('C:***[*.xls]sheet name'I:I, QXO)"
End Sub

editthe range is just so I can see if it's giving the right values, the range won't be like that once I get it working. I'll probably be using logic statements to place them in the appropriate cells. The * is just me taking out the directory names, its on the desktop)

It can copy cell values from another unopened workbook, but when I try to put in COUNTIF it doesn't want to compile/run the script.

That's basically the question. Here's some background and my aim:

I'm scanning row I:I for certain keywords which I then count up and put into corresponding columns of a chart.

Indirect Reference To Defined Name

Feb 17, 2012

Reduced to it's simplest form I have a formula

=1*(FY2012_TY), where FY2012_TY

is a Defined Name which refers to a column on another tab in the workbook, and is defined as:

=OFFSET(Table!$AA$3,0,0,COUNT(Table!$AA:$AA),1)

What I would like to do is to come up with an approach to this formula that would allow me to drag it across columns and have the year automatically increment (e.g., FY2013_TY, FY2014_TY, all of which are similarly defined Defined Names referring to adjacent columns). I have tried various approaches using INDIRECT along with CONCATENATE, but when it comes down to evaluating the formula, I consistently get a #REF! error.

Row Reference Using No Indirect Or Offset

Feb 1, 2009

I have an income statement with the cities on top (column header) and the expenses below it. There are 5 cities for example. The last line is net profit before it changes to the next city.

New York (column header)
Wages
Lights
Net Profit

Boston
Lights
Wages
Sales
Net Profit

How do you get the row reference for Boston Net Profit without using the offset or indirect function? (doing external linking with workbook closed) The formula would find Boston first and then look for the first net profit after Boston? The small if function may work for this.

Adding Text To INDIRECT Reference

Feb 13, 2014

Is there anyway to add text to an INDIRECT reference so that it will now reference a new range?

For instance, this is my formula...

=IF(INDEX(INDIRECT("A1+TM"),MATCH(B2,INDIRECT(A1),0),1)="","-",INDEX(INDIRECT("A1+TM"),MATCH(B2,INDIRECT(A1),0),1))

I am trying to say, if the cell 1 column to the left of the cell that matches the text in B2, in the cell range referenced in A1 (CWS) "added to the text "TM", is blank, then write "-", otherwise return the number in the cell 1 column to the left of the cell that matches the text in B2, in the cell range referenced in A1 (CWS)+"TM".

Cell A1 is a data validation list that refers to different ranges. The only difference between those named ranges and the named range I want to reference is the text "TM" comes at the end.

VLOOKUP - Indirect RangeName Reference

Mar 12, 2008

I'm having difficulty referencing named ranges indirectly in a VLOOKUP formula (Excel 2003).

Cell A1 contains a fuel cost.

Cell A2 contains a formula that returns a RangeName.

In Cell A3, I want to enter a VLOOKUP formula that uses the range returned as the result in Cell A2 as the Table_array. In other words: =VLOOKUP($A$1,$A$2,2,FALSE). The result is #NA!.

If I use =VLOOKUP($A$1,INDIRECT($A$2),2,FALSE), I get #REF!.

Among other things, I've also tried =VLOOKUP($A$1,TEXT($A$2,"@"),2,FALSE). No cigar.

Combining Text And Cell Reference With Indirect

Oct 2, 2008

I'm trying to combine text and a cell reference using Indirect. Cell B1 contains the text "Region" (no quotation marks). In another cell I'm trying to create a reference to "Region total" (no quotation marks). By my limited understanding the below should work: =INDIRECT("b1"&" total")

But the cell returns #REF!. I've tried pretty much every combination of quotation marks around different elements of the formula I can think of. Cell B1 is a drop down list, don't imagine that's relevant, but it may be.

Sheet Cell Reference And INDIRECT Formula

I have this formula in excel 2007:

=COUNTIFS(Blad1!W:W;"1";Blad1!X:X;"H")+COUNTIFS(Blad1!W:W;"6";Blad1!X:X;"H").

Blad is Dutch for sheet, by the way.

In this formula, I want to let the ranges in Sheet1 be dependent of values in Sheet2. The formula itself is in Sheet2.

W must be replaced by the value of Sheet2!B12 and X to be replaced by the value of Sheet2!B9.

I tried this by using the INDIRECT formula, but the quotation marks of the search values are giving errors.

Dynamic Cell Reference In Indirect Formula

Oct 11, 2011

I need making a dynamic cell reference in an indirect formula, which looks at a different workbook.

The other workbook is called: ESF.xlsx
The sheet name in the other workbook is defined in Cell B2
The first cell i need to pull across is B115.

In cell B8, This is what i have so far:

=INDIRECT("[ESF.xlsx]"&B2&"!"&"B115")

How do i make it so that i can copy this formula quickly, but so only the row and column reference change?

Like in C8 i would want it to look at cell C115, In C9, id want it to look at C116 etc.

Indirect Function To Reference A Named Range

Apr 30, 2009

How would I used the indirect function to reference a named range in the workbook in formula creation.

For instance, if in cell A1 I have entered the text "Sales" which is also a named range in the workbook. Then in cell A2 I tried entering the following formula to sum based on the entry in cell A1 using the indirect funtion. For instance:

=sum(indirect(A1))

In this instance I was hoping this formula would then sum the amounts in the "Sales" named range. And, if I changed the text in cell A1 to "Cost" for instance (another named range in the workbook), it would sum the amounts in the "Cost" named range. Allowing for a dynamic formula based on the entry in cell A1.

I'm using Excel 2007.

SUMPRODUCT / INDIRECT Functions Not Working With ROW Reference When Combined

Apr 4, 2014

Basically I have an equation:

=SUMPRODUCT(G9:G11,H9:H11)/SUM(G9:G11)

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:

"A1"=SUMPRODUCT(INDIRECT("G9:G"&MIN(ROW(G9)+A8-1)),INDIRECT("H9:H"&MIN(ROW(H9)+A8-1)))

Where the user inputs the number of rows used in A8.

The solution for the lower part of the fraction is this:
"A2"=SUM(INDIRECT("G9:G"&ROW(G9)+A8-1))

and the attached test will placed then in that order under their respective headers.

Pull Value From Closed Workbook Where Workbook Name Is In A Cell

Nov 24, 2007

I want to open an excel file whose name is a value in a spreadsheet, and then pull a value from the spreadsheet I queried into my existing workbook. Here is the syntax i have so far:

to note: I'm calling the workbook in which the macro is located testproject.xls, and I'm using [integer].xls as my list of files that the macro will query. Ultimately, this code will go in a loop.

Set currentCell = Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1")
varCellvalue = currentCell.value
Workbooks.Open "path_of_file" & varCellvalue & ".xls"
Windows("testproject.xls").Activate
currentCell.Offset.(0,1).Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=[3.xls]Sheet1!R1C1"

The problem is, I want [3.xls] to carry the sale value as varCellvalue with .xls appended, and not be kept static at 3. I tried inserting & varCellvalue & ".xls" into the brackets, but with no luck. My only difficulty is getting [3.xls] to vary along with varCellvalue.

Prompt Open Closed Workbook Then Copy Range And Paste Special Into Open Workbook

Apr 6, 2013

I have created a spreadsheet some time ago and have been asked to improve on it but I'm rusty with VBA.

I have an automated ordering system that saves each sent order as the date e.g "05-04-2013.xls" but the management team want a graph with the data for the last 4 weeks compared. I have created a seperate workbook called "consumables report.xls" which has a column with the products listed followed by columns "Quantity" and "cost" which is repeated for the 4 weeks of the month.

I want to add a button to prompt the user to choose the saved order e.g "05-04-2013.xls" (all orders saved in same directory) to copy and paste the quantity and cost columns (c8,D69) into "consumables report.xls". I got this to work earlier but it would only paste the formulas and not the values. So I need

A prompt to open workbook
Copy range (c8,d69)
Close work sheet
Paste special .value (c8,D69)

I dont care if it has to open the workbook to copy the data as this will only be used once a month so it dosnt matter how slow the code is.

week 1 week 2 week 3 week 4
Product
quantity
cost
