Insert Text From Once Cell Into A Formula In Another Cell

Sep 11, 2009

I built a formula that should work, but it's too long so I need to condense it.

I have three columns, column 1 has names, column 2 has a formula.

I have 15 sheets, each with a name that could appear in column 1.

If the cell in column 2, sheet 1 is Bob, I want it to pull H5 from sheet bob. That works as:

=IF(A5="Bob", 'Bob Data'!H4, "Work in Progress")

But if I build that formula for all the possible names, it's too long. Is there a way to make the formula autofill with the name in cell A5

So: =IF(A5="XXXX", 'XXXX'!H4, "Work in Progress")

VBA To Read Text Formula And Related Constants And Insert As Formula Into Cell

Jul 30, 2014

I have a situation where I have to curve fit data, this can lead to different formulas being used with varying constants.

Is it possible to pickup a TEXT based formula and related constants from other cells, and then place this into another cell as a functioning formula. For Example

Cell A1 contains the formula as a text string whether it be y=a+bx+cx^2, or y=a+b/x, etc
Cells A2:A6 contain the individual constants, a, b, c, etc

I would then want the VBA to read the text based formula and put it into an output cell as a functioning excel formulae.g

In cell B10: =a+b*A10+c*A10^2

I understand picking the constants up and putting the formula should not be too much of an issue, however trying to insert the variable form of the curve fit is the part that I am struggling with, and am unsure if possible.

Find Cell With Text & Insert Formula Below

Jun 11, 2008

I want the macro to:

1. search A1:AZ1 to find the cell that has the text "VBA Test" in the cell. There could be other text in the cell as well - this is not an exact match - but these two words are the common text.

2. go to that cell

3. go to one cell below that

4. enter a formula (I've got it from here ....)

Macro To Insert Date In Cell When Text Is Inserted In Another Cell

Feb 20, 2008

I'm trying to write a macro similar to the one found here: here:http://www.techonthenet.com/excel/macros/checkbox.php.

Rather then use a textbox, I would like the cell to display the date when text is inserted in the cell to the left.

ie. I insert text (the letter 'a') in cell E11, and the date appears in cell F11.

I would also like the macro to do this for a range of cells ie. for E11 to F21, then from G11 to H21, then from I11 to J21, all the way to column IV.

Insert Filename In A Cell Into Formula In Another Cell

Feb 3, 2014

I have tried =INDIRECT but that will not work.

I have a file name typed into cell C3. I want the formula in cell C4 (C5,C6,C7......) to include the name of the file typed into cell C3. The formula in cell C5 shows what the content should look like.

I want the users to be able to type the file name in Row 3 (C3,D3,E3.......) and have the formulas below them insert the file name and access the information from the files (yes the files can/will be open when we do this).

I need to to have at least twenty different formulas (rows) referencing specific cells in these files.

The formulas would look like this ='["File name from C3"]Audit Information'!\$D\$35.

I am hoping it may only be a syntax thing and someone here can "show me the way" I have tried &\$C\$3& with and without quotations with no luck.

Here is the test file. Test3.xlsm‎

How To Insert Blank Row Below A Cell Containing Specific Text

Oct 19, 2009

I was wondering if someone might be able to assist me with using VB to insert a new row below a cell containing specific text.

For example:

- All of my data is in column A

-I want to scan all of column A, and if there is a cell that contains "ACHCAMERIGROUP M", then I want a blank row inserted below it. If column A does NOT contain that text....do nothing.

Insert Pic Into Comment For Every Cell That Has Text Containing String .jpg Or .png

May 10, 2009

I need a nudge in the right direction with how to amend the below code so that it :
1: cycles though all cells in a workbook, and sees whether the text reference of the cell contains a picture filename (i.e. searches for .png or .jpg in the cell contents)
3: if (1) is correct, it retrieves the picture from "C:/Users/jeff/Documents/Standards/" and pastes it as a cell comment background in the cell to the right (and overwrites any comment backgrounds that might already exist there)

The code below does something a bit different: it looks in a defined range, then adds a comment with a background picture retrieved based on the text in the cell to the left.

I'm sure this is a pretty basic change, but my VBA skills aren't up to it...I've only just started reading though Walkenbach's Power Programming! I'm using Excel 2007

Sub InsertComment()
Dim rngList As Range
Dim c As Range
Dim cmt As Comment
Dim strPic As String

On Error Resume Next

Set rngList = Range("A1:A5")
strPic = "C:/Users/jeff/Documents/Standards/"
On Error Resume Next
For Each c In rngList
With c.Offset(0, 1)...................

Insert Text In First Empty Cell In 2 Dimensional Range

Nov 20, 2013

I'm looking for a quick and easy way to insert a value in the first empty cell in a multi-column, multi-row range using VBA. I suppose I could loop through the range, but the table could grow to immense proportions and I don't want to slow everything down.

For example, the new value should be placed in cell C4. It doesn't matter whether the range is looped through the rows or columns, either will work just fine.

Vba Code To Insert A Formula To Certain Cell

Aug 14, 2008

I try to put a formula to a certain cell using this code, but I get application defined or object defined error:

HTML Selection.Cells(1).Offset(0, 5).Formula = "=INDEX(range1;MATCH(""D""&C13;range2;0);MATCH(""S""&D13;range3;0))"

The weird thing is, that if I type the same formula itself to a cell, it works, so the problem shouldn't be with the formula:

HTML =INDEX(range1;MATCH("D"&C13;range2;0);MATCH("S"&D13;range3;0))

On the other hand I tried to replace the formula in my VBA code with simpler one, like this one and that worked aswell:

HTML Selection.Cells(1).Offset(0, 5).Formula = "=a1+a2"

Insert Formula In Cell From VBA With False

May 25, 2006

I want to make changes to a cell's formula when a combobox option is clicked,
I can make the changes using sheet1.cells(x,y) = "=WHATEVER(bla,bla,false)"
The problem is that when I run the program and make a change in the combobox, false is written as 'false' in the cells formula, which drives it into not working and displays ####### as the cells result.

Insert Sum Formula Across Last Cell Of Each Column

Apr 7, 2008

I am making a deposit sheet schedule, which has 10-15 batches of deposits that are entered one after the other, vertically. Each deposit entry can be allocated to many different expense accounts, so a deposit will be 500 with 400 to rent, 50 utitilies, etc. So I need multiple summation rows

So, I want to add a sum row beneath each set of deposits.

My problem is that each deposit is a different amount of rows long.

I was thinking of doing something like this:

'totalRow() is each row where the summation formulas will go totalRow(0) is not an actual sum row, but tells me where the first row of data lies.

For Each cell In Range("H" & (totalRow(x - 1) + 1) & "", "J" & (totalRow(x - 1) + 1) & ":N" & (totalRow(x - 1) + 1) & "", "P" & (totalRow(x - 1) + 1) & ":AB" & (totalRow(x - 1) + 1) & "")
cell.Formula = "=sum(Range(""A"" & (totalRow(x - 1) + 1) & "":A"" & (totalRow(x) - 1)"

Next

I don't know how to reference the ranges I want to sum, because I don't know how to increment the reference to the column (i.e. changing A to B to F to G, etc.) with the Range().Formula construct.

I was thinking of using R1C1 somehow but I'm not as familiar and I don't think you can use r1c1 & Range() at the same time.

Insert Formula Based On Cell Entry Using Vba

Oct 5, 2009

i'm sure this can be done but i cant get an angle on the method. i want to use VBA to put a formula into cell G3 based on the users entry in cell D3 so, for example the user enters M in cell D3 and the VBA code puts the formula "if D3="M",A3,0"into cell G3

i know i could use a formula in the cell but i want it to work with multiple entries so i figure VBA is the way to go.

Insert Row At Active Cell With Formula From Fixed Row

Jun 20, 2007

I want to insert a new row that contains the formulas of a fixed row (1:1).
The inserted row is changeable and is determined by whichever is the current active cell.

Eg:

Active cell is something random like E16

I want to add a new row but don't want a blank row - rather want a row that contains the properties of 1:1

Macro To Insert Formula At Every Marked Cell

Jun 15, 2008

I am using a For Next statement that doesn't return the results for all the rows. The statement is as follows:

For Row = 1 To 100
If ActiveCell.Value = "CHANGE" Then
ActiveCell. Offset(0, 2).Range("A1").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=RIGHT(""0000""&RC[-1],20)"
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Range("A1").Select
ElseIf ActiveCell.Value <> "CHANGE" Then
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Range("A1").Select
Else: Range("A1").Select
Exit For

End If
Next

Range("A1").Select

I hope I did that according to the rules. It only returns the result in the first cell that does have a value of "CHANGE". It seem to be going through the entire range of cells, but I'm not getting any results.

Excel 2007 :: Macro To Insert A Text Box Auto-sized To Fit A Cell?

Nov 30, 2011

I am trying to write a Macro that will insert a Text Box that auto-fits the shape of a cell to hide its content. Once finished, the Macro will need to lock the cell and the text box so the contents of the cell are hidden. The idea is that I want to share a spreadsheet with someone but want to hide individual cells for various reason.

Sheet1A1SAMPLE DATA2sample3sample4HIDDEN5sampleExcel 2007

I tried to record a macro as a starting point but it recorded nothing. I searched around and it seems to be an issue without a solution.

I could obviously change the formatting and the contents of the cell but the idea is to preserve the contents if possible.

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)

Use Text In A Cell For A Formula As Cell Reference To Create Range

Mar 10, 2013

I have a list of headings and items and I have a set of formulas that work out depending on the heading what items are listed.

Say theres 10 items and the heading starts at C4 and that heading has 10 items, so it puts "C5" as text in G1 and "C15" as text in G2 so i now know my cell range of items

How can i use the text in those cells to put in a formula to call that as a range?

If I use the indirect formula it shows me the value of the cell, but im after using it to reference the cell

Automatically Insert Blank Line When Value Of Cell A Changes And Use Of COUNTA Formula

May 29, 2013

I need to do two things in my Excel spreadsheet: 1) I want it to insert a blank row everytime a value in the 1st column changes. 2) In the blank lines, I want to do a COUNTA for each of columns G through N. If I can get the program to insert the blank rows...they will not be a set # of records apart...some will have 3 records & some might have 17 records. Is there a way to automatically cause #2 to happen instead of having to choose the function icon and then tell Excel the first and last cells in each range?
