# Inserting Row Without Changing Reference Cell On Another Sheet

Jul 3, 2014

I am trying to create a formula that references information on two different sheets, but i want it to show me the values that are newly created when a new row is inserted. The two current sheets are Master and Data.

I have a formula on Master that reads ='Data'!\$K\$3 to reference the value on Sheet data in cell K3. When a new row is inserted showing me the current readings, I want the Master sheet to show me the NEW value in cell K3 on the data sheet. The problem is, the insert of a row moves the formula on the Master sheet to now be ='Data'!\$K\$4. How can i STOP the insertion of a row from changing the formula so i continue to see the value i need?

## Changing Cell Reference In A Formula When Inserting A Row

Jul 10, 2009

I have a function Sum('1st Qtr:4th Qty'!AW1) in row 1 and dragged down 129 rows so the last reads Sum('1st Qtr:4th Qty'!AW129). If I insert a row the cell reference does not increment automatically below the insert location. How do I get it to do so. The insertion occurs when I run a macro.

## Stop Formula Changing Cell Reference But Change Sheet Number When Dragged?

Feb 8, 2010

need to do to the below code so that when i drag the formula down it changes the sheet number....sheet1, sheet2, sheet3 and so on but keeps the cell reference the same?

## Adjust Formula To Allow For Changing Sheet Reference.

Nov 22, 2009

I was using the formula below which was working fine for copying across 20 columns and down however many rows, but now the requirements have changed to 90 columns. I have tested this out with the 90 columns but the Indirect function is bogging down the spreadsheet with the constant recalculating.

=IFERROR(INDIRECT("'"&COLUMNS(\$A\$1:A\$1)&"'!P"&ROWS(\$A\$1:\$A8)),"")

I rearranged the formula to the one below, but how can I have the reference to the sheet name changed as in the formula above without using the Indirect?

=IFERROR(INDEX('1'!\$A\$8:\$AT\$115,MATCH(\$A3,'1'!\$A\$8:\$A\$115,0),MATCH("PAT",'1'!\$A\$7:\$AT\$7,0)),"")

The sheet reference will change from '1' through '90'.

## Changing A Cell Reference

Jul 14, 2009

I have three sheets - Actual( which has actual figures from Jan - Dec), Budget ( figures from Jan - Dec) and a Summary sheet ( which is just the summary for the current month, say July and compares the budget VS Actual). Every month i need to change the summary sheet to the next months set of figures, say Augusts etc etc.

Currently i've been using find and replace, and changed the formula to the correct months column - but its a rather large spreadsheet( its a management accounts pack and has many many more sheets that link up - like lasts years comparison etc etc)
Is there any easy way of linking ( without VBA) or anything complex, so that each month i can change my data easily?

## Changing Linked Cell Row Reference?

Nov 14, 2009

I have a master summary sheet that contains all the required information for 21 other worksheets. Each row contains the information for a single sheet. I have linked all the relative cells to the first sheet but would like create a formula that changes the row reference in each of the links rather than the tedious task of updating each individual link in every sheet.

I have tried using the indirect function but constantly get errors returned, the basic formula i have been using is: =INDIRECT("Summary"!C&,X1)

'C' is the column in the summary sheet that the information should be taken and 'X1' is the cell in the worksheet that will define what row the data should be taken e.g in one sheet the reference for that specific cell will be C5 and the next C6 and so on.

## Reference Changing Column On Specified Cell?

Dec 9, 2013

I have 2 Sheets in Excel: Sheet 1 & Sheet 2

Sheet 1 has some basic data (numbers) in a column, say AB1, AB2, AB4, AB15 (specific cells)

Sheet 2 basically references the data in a nicer template, with the basic forumala: ="Sheet 1"!AB1, etc..

Now...Sheet 1 has a new column inserted and new data added weekly, so AC1, AC2, AC4. AC15

How do I ensure that Sheet 2 recognises the new Column Insert (incremental letter) and references it automatically?

## MAX Date - Cell Reference Not Changing For Each Row

Aug 10, 2013

I'm using the following formula which is entered by using VBA on the worksheet change event but the cell reference 'A2' is not changing for each row, i.e. A3, A4 etc.....

Code:
=MAX(IF( 'Device Use - 4 month Period'!\$A\$2:\$A\$20000=A2, 'Device Use - 4 month Period'!\$C\$2:\$C\$20000))

## Change One Value Of A Cell Without Changing Others That Reference It

Apr 7, 2007

I am creating a schedule to use for our helpdesk - it has pre-defined tasks that need to be assigned each day - easy enough to accomplish with a formula. And I've done this by using this similar formula on each line of the tasks (This first task is based on a manual entery into one field (B19))
=IF(AND(B6="Liz"),"Paul",IF(AND(B6="Paul"),"Mark",IF(AND(B6="Mark"),"Diane",IF(AND(B6="Diane"),"Jeff",IF(AND(B6="Jeff"),"Dan R",IF(AND(B6="Dan R"),"Chris",IF(AND(B6="Chris"),"Liz","")))))))

So, B4 is one task (phones) and the formula above (B6) is from another task (tickets) and then a third task (admin) looks at the value of B5 and uses the same formula above, etc.

However, I want to be able to change the value of a single cell, based on the (manual entry) value of another (out of task) series of cells (i.e. Sick (B35) & vacation (B36)) - and I don't want any of the other task cells(in the C cell series of 'tasks'), that are basically linked together by the value of the other cell, to change. Thus, in turn, would mean that the same person would now be in two different cells, and thus is creating a circular reference.

Let me spell this out a bit clearer.
The first manual field is B19 - If I enter 'Chris' into this field, then field C5 matches it. Then field B6 uses the formula above to figure it's value; as does B7 thru B12.
Now, If I put another manual entry into 'Sick' (B35), then I want whichever task that person is assigned to (for this example, we'll say I entered 'Jeff" into Sick, and Jeff happens to be on 'tickets' that day) to change to whoever is in cell B12 - but I don't want any of the other cells to change - but, since they are all dependant on each other, this doesn't seem like a possibility.

I've tried creating a count of names in the Sick or Vacation fields and then added this to the formula
=IF(AND(C5="Liz", B38=0),"Paul",IF(AND(C5="Paul",B41=0),"Mark",IF(AND(C5="Mark",B40=0),"Diane",IF(AND(C5="Diane",B40=0),"Jeff",IF(AND(C5="Jeff",B43=0),"Dan R",IF(AND(C5="Dan R",B37=0),"Chris",IF(AND(C5="Chris",B45=0),"Liz",B12)))))))

B38 being Pauls count; B41 being Marks, etc - so as long as their count equals zero, they are 'eligible' to fill that slot.
B12 is the last person on the schedule.

## Repeat Formula 5 Times Before Changing Cell Reference?

Feb 27, 2014

how I can have a formula repeat down a column five times before it changes to another formula? For example. Say on tab 1 I have a list of products. On tab two I have five codes that repeat down the page over and over again. On tab two next to the repeating codes I need to repeat product one 5 times and then skip to product 2 on the 6th row and repeat five times and then skip to product 3 on the 11th row and repeat 5 times and so on?

## Copy Formulas In Cells Without Changing Reference Cell?

Jul 7, 2014

I'm preparing an accounting model for my office use. How to solve the copying of formula to all other cells.

The detail is here:

Sheet 1:
1) I've entered a number 1000 in L2

Sheet 2:
1) I've entered a values in columns D,E,F,G
2) Calculations :
at G2 : the formula is =D2*Sheet1!L2

The problem is when I Copy the formula in G2 through G3, G4, G5........... it changes to =D3*Sheet1!L3, =D4*ValidData!L4, =D5*ValidData!L5 and so on... but it should be =D3*Sheet1!L2, =D4*ValidData!L2, =D5*ValidData!L2, so that the L2 value shall be constant for calculations in all cells.

## Stop Cell Reference Changing When Insert Column

Jun 4, 2009

I have referenced data in two colums on a sheet A and B. Column A contains the latest data, each month i insert new column (moving column A to column B). However all of my references continue to follow the original data (eg will change from column A to column B). this happens despite using Absolute references. (=\$A\$1). Is there a way to lock these cell references to only ever display column A etc?

## Stop Formula Cell Reference Changing When Copying

Nov 1, 2006

I am trying to cut/paste a row of formulas in my spreadsheet. The problem is that I want some of the referenced cells in the formula to stay CONSTANT and not increment on each new row. In this example, I want the references to row 17 (F17,E17) to increment (E18,E19,...), but I want the "G7" reference to remain hard coded (as G7) on each row I paste (because that is where my master value is). (The formula is working fine) =IF((F17>0),IF((F17<=G7),E17,0),0)

## Stop Formula Column Reference Changing On Insert But Not Row Reference

Mar 6, 2008

A 'Days Attended' cell (N8) and a 'Days Absent' cell (O8). N8 needs to count the number of "Present" values there are on another worksheet. The other worksheet has dates across the top and names down the side.

When i use
=COUNTIF("Attendance!C9:Z9", "Present"),
and the next date comes along the formula changes to
=COUNTIF("Attendance!D9:AA9", "Present")

ie. the reference moves a column across - the new date's absent or present is not counted. Using =COUNTIF(INDIRECT("Attendance!C9:Z9"), "Present"). is no good because when i add a new name i need the row reference to move down as a row is inserted. ie. both person's formulas count the same row. So, my question: I need the columns to stay the same - C:Z (leyway for future dates) and the rows to change as i insert or delete people from the system.

## Multiply Range Of Cells By Cell Reference Without Changing Hard Coded Values?

Aug 20, 2014

I am trying to multiply a range of cells by a cell reference. The cells currently have hard coded values in them. I know with past special you can multiply a range of cells by a copied #. I want a similar function to that just instead of a copied cell its a cell reference. No VBA.

## Inserting Columns Without Changing Formulas?

Feb 7, 2014

I have a very simple inventory spreadsheet that I used to keep track of certain products. The issue is that I often have to insert new columns and when I do, the formulas get convoluted. Is there a trick to making them follow the structure of the formula before?

My formula is =SUM(GT4:GU4) and appears in the Running Total column. When I insert two columns - a white column where an order will be inserted, as well as a running total column. When I perform the insert, the formula for the inserted columns, as well as the set of columns immediately to the right require corrections:

Inserted columns: =SUM(GT4:GW4) [Should be GV4:GW4]
Columns to the right: =SUM(GV4:GY4) [Should be GX4:GY4]

I know how to manipulate the formulas correctly, I would like to keep a clean file for my predecessor.

## Inserting- Sheet With A Range Of Paragraphs Of Text From Cell

Jan 19, 2009

I have a sheet with a range of paragraphs of text from cell D2:R2.

How can I get it so that if I put an X in the column under the relevant paragraph, it will insert the paragraph of text into the spreadsheet.

For example. Text lies in cell D2. If I put an X in cell D7, I want the text in D2 to be inserted into C7.

## Reference Sheet (return The Value Of Cell B2 On Whichever Sheet The Text Of A1 Says)

Nov 1, 2009

If I have a cell that has as its contents as sheet name, is there anyway I can use the cell's address to reference that sheet?

As an example, say I have in Sheet1, cell A1, the text Sheet2. And let's say I want to return the value of cell B2 on whichever sheet the text of A1 says. So, on Sheet1, I might have this:

## Returning Cell Value From Sheet 1 Based On Cell Reference From Sheet 2

Oct 29, 2013

In Sheet2 I have a list of cell addresses showing values such as D5, D32, D59, D221, D869 stored in cells AB7:AB16. In Sheet1 the "D" column holds dates. I want to return the corresponding date for each D# cell into Sheet2 in column AC7:AC16. I'm unaware of the proper syntax for this. I though it would look something like:

='Sheet1'!('Sheet2'!(AB7))

however that doesn't work.

## Changing Value - New Value Goes Into The Next Available Cell On Another Sheet?

Jul 31, 2014

I have a cell that is being populated by a formula. Is it possible that every time the value of that cell changes, the new value goes into the next available cell on another sheet?

To simplify things:
Sheet1 A1=5 Sheet2 A1=5
Sheet1 A1=6 Sheet2 A1=5 A2=6
Sheet1 A1=9 Sheet2 A1=5 A2=6 A3=9

And so on.

## Changing Sheet Name When Cell Changes

Is there a way of changing the Sheet name when a value in a Cell changes. i.e the sheet name is the same as the cell value

## Changing Cell Background Color In Another Sheet Based On Cell Value

Jun 13, 2013

I am working on a workbook with 200+ sheets and an index linking to each of the sheets. On the sheets there is a cell containing the results of calculations and I need the cell referencing the sheet in the index to change background colors depending if the calculations value is greater or less than 0. I currently have working code that also changes the tab color of each sheet depending on the value, but i am trying to add the index cell background change functionality into that. also, the index listings is subject to change. my working code is

VB:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Range("d34").Value < 0 Then
Me.Tab.ColorIndex = 3
ElseIf Range("D34").Value > 0 Then
Me.Tab.ColorIndex = 4
Else

[Code]...

and the code i am trying to get working is

VB:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rngX As Range
Set myRange = Worksheets("Index").Range("A1:A500").Find(Range("C2").Text, lookat:=xlPart)
' the C2 is the reference the title that would be on the index
If Range("d40").Value < 0 Then

[Code]....

I keep getting the runtime error '1004: application-defined error or object-defined error the thing is, i ran the cell background changing code in a normal macro before integrating it in my other worksheet code first and it worked fine. I have a little code experience, though not much in vba and I am unsure what the issue is. if there is another better way to accomplish what I'm tring to do, that would also be fine.

## Name Sheet Automatically Based On Changing Cell

Aug 20, 2008

In my sheet called summary I have the names of the rest of the tabs in the book in cells B5 to B34. We want to be able to change the names of the tabs by changing their respective cell on the summary tab. So “sheet1” corresponds to B5, “sheet2” to B6, “sheet3” to B7, etc.. So if I change the name in B5 to say “APPLE” I want the tab for sheet1 to change to APPLE. When I change B10 from “sheet6” to “Lemon” I want sheet6 to be titled “Lemon”.

## Cell Reference To Another Cell Using Sheet Number Not Sheet Name?

May 22, 2012

How can this be done?

E.g. say I want to create a list of cells each referencing to the first, second, third sheet, and so on.

Say, on one sheet cell A1 references to the second sheet's A1, cell A2 references to the third sheet's A1, and so on.

Ideally I'd love to be able to write something like
=Worksheet(1)!A1
=Worksheet(2)!A1
=Worksheet(3)!A1

and so on.

## Reference A Sheet Name In A Cell

Jun 4, 2007

Is it possible to have a sheetname reference in a cell?

A1 = "Exhibit A"

and have a formula as such?

where the sheetname in bold is pulled in by a reference to cell A1?

## Sheet And Cell Reference

May 7, 2008

I have an IF statment that looks at a sheet but I would like it to look at certain sheets I.E. sheet 2,4,5,6.

Sub SelectPrintArea2()
For Each ws In Worksheets
If Range("Sheet4Q5").Value > 0 Then
Range("A1:AA47").Select
ws.PageSetup.PrintArea = "\$A\$1:\$AA\$47"
ElseIf Range("C5").Value > 0 Then
Range("A1:M47").Select
ws.PageSetup.PrintArea = "\$A\$1:\$M\$47"
End If
Next ws
End Sub

But it will only look at the sheet it is in and not any of the other sheets. I've tried to tell it which sheets but I just get errors.

## Reference From Another Sheet To Formatt The Cell

## Cell Reference Or Defined Name For A Sheet

Jan 13, 2009

I'd like to be able to refer to a cell or local scope defined name within my sheet that references another sheet, or accomplish the same functionality in some way.

For example, if I have a sheet MyInformation and then another sheet MyPrintedInformation, where the printed information sheet shows MyInformation in a more printer-friendly format, I might have this in MyPrintedInformation:

a cell or defined name that says (this doesn't work, but just as an example):
let's call the named variable TheSheetToPrint
='MyInformation'. Then from within MyPrintedInformation all of my references look like this

Some cell :

=TheSheetToPrint!A2
