Is there any way to refer to a cell that is directly to the left of the current cell?
I need to create a Comma-Separated Value file with the Excel formula in the CSV file. Because of this, I do not know the current cell location, but want to do something like =(Cell directly to the left of me) + (Cell two cells to the left of me)
I'm actually having difficulty with the sumproduct function, I'm trying to count items based on multiple criteria (and yes I have looked under that). I'm using a very helpful formula that I grabbed from this site. =SUMPRODUCT(1*(base!$B$1:$B$19465=locations!B$1),1*(base!$A$1:$A$19465=locations!$A6))
The problem that I have is that this doesn't work if I replace $B$1:$B$19465 with $B:$B. now as the number of rows on the base sheet may change, this means I need to change the formula each time I change the data on the base sheet which is somewhat ridiculous. I've been playing around with indirect trying to reference the last cell in a range, but I don't seem to be getting anywhere with that.
i need a code that moves down a column and for every empty cell in the column the cell to the left is cleared and then it moves on to the next cell down. the column is not always the same and will start from a selected cell, and the column will contain no more than 5 rows
Let's say I've ended up with the number 8 in Cell D4 for example. Is there a formula that can return the letter "G" (The 8th Column) so I can use it in future cell references ? If so, let's say we store that in Cell B5. How do I now refer to a cell in a chosen Row of that same Column by reference to Cell B5 ? For example if I want to refer to Cell G33 can you refer to this Cell in some form like Cell(Contents of Cell B5;33) ??? Don't want to use R1C1 type references if possible.
I'm trying to get a code that will do the following: I've got a list of stocks followed by extra information in de columns to the right of it. If, based on that extra information you'd like to know more about the stock, I'd like the user to just select the cell that holds the name, and click a button.
What this button should do is the problem for me right now: it needs to select the cell left to the one selected holding the name of the stock. The cell to the left holds the code that is used to lookup information in Bloomberg. This cell is invisible to the user since I hide it to make the tool look good. How do I write a piece of code to select for instance: B10-1=A10. The rest is just a recording job. Also, I know you can add text to the text in a cell, however in this case I want to cut some text. Is the any way to get: "B10-1"-"equity sedol1", leaving me with the text in A10 minus equity sedol1?
I'm trying to reference a location on a spreadsheet in a macro by using the values in two cells (the idea is to then paste to this location):
D2 is 17 (the row) B4 is 2 (the column)
therefore the location is B17 (R17C2), but can I get this to work...? The values in these cells can change depending on selections made which is why I want to use the cell references rather than the absolute!
I have a data entry spreadsheet that contains 120 data entry panels each of 10 rows. Each panel is separated by 3 rows (1 of which is hidden). When entering data to the panel the user is required to enter a date in column F of the data entry panel. The number of used rows in each data entry panel can vary from 1 to 10.
The entry of a date in the first Column F cell in each entry panel stamps today's date in Col F in the first row below each data panel (the hidden row) and that date is then linked to a separate summary sheet to show the date of data entry. The code I'm using for the date stamping routine is below, and although it works it is painfully slow and I'm sure very inefficient. I've had to break the code into the three sections as shown below because there seems to be a limit to the number of individual cells I can reference in each of the range statements. (Is there a limit or is the length of the range statement causing some other problem?)
I am not sure how this is possible without doing copy pate transpose or individually refereing each cell to source. I would like the heading to be presented as in sheet1 which is sourced from Source sheet but if anychanges are made to source it updates the Sheet1. I have attached an example to illustrate. (Headers are not fixed number)
I am trying to get information from 1 sheet to another. What i need to do is take the information from sheet 2 column H2:H26 and put it in sheet 1 cell I4. i already have the vlookup information in the other cells that i need but for what i need this for is different than a vlookup. basically i want to be able to type in a name (from sheet 2) in cell I4 (sheet1) and all the information that i need auto populates for me like i already have. I was able to do this with a drop down menu but that wont work as the information will change weekly,
I have a column of numbers, on which i would like to perform subtraction, in a way that the cell in the (i)th row will be subtracted from the one in the (i+x)th row, while x is a parameter that the user can change as he wishes.
My problem is how to refer to the cell address and still use this conditional reference... If anyone has an idea how to realize this calculation (which should be peanuts in Matlab, but apparently more problematic in Excel),
I have a massive excel sheet with 300,000 rows and 100+ columns. When reading back through my formulas, it can get very confusing. Example: "=(AZ9*5 + 1)+BH9/2 +(AP9*0.75)" I then have to figure out what each column letter is representing. Instead of this, could I rename a column so I can reference the variable name? Example:
I'd like to reference Column A to a single cell in a different sheet.
Returns the value of A2 in the sheet called StoresServiced to another sheet.
What I want to do is, the values from A2 to A102 to show in one cell, separated by commas. So if theres value in A2 (8009) and A3 (8010), I want the active cell (ex. M43) to look like this -> 8009,8010 -- so on and so fort
How do I change a formula cell reference based on another cell's reference? I'm building a schedule that looks to a task's trigger and adds days based on that relationship. All entries in column "A" will be text and all cells in "B" will be the simple formula "=A2" or "=A3". Due date is calculated by adding the value in "C" to the preceding date in column "D". In the spreadsheet below, the trigger for "Budget set" is "Specs written" with 3 days added to the previous due date.
________A________________B_____________C_________D 1 Task___________Trigger_____________Days_____Due Date 2 Design begins__Proj OK______________10____10-Jan 3 Specs written__Design begins (A2)____5____15-Jan (D2+C3) 4 Budget set_____Specs written (A3)____3____18-Jan (D3+C4)
If the trigger for A4, "Budget set", changed from A3 to A2, is there a way that the formula that determines the due date in D4 could read the trigger cell reference in B4 so that the value in the corresponding row in column "C" is added in the date column?
I have an inventory log that requires multiple cells in different columns to be unlocked based on a reference cell's input.
So, if a cell in column E has "MORNING" entered then cells L/M/N are unlocked and said user can input data for that row, and only that row. If anything else is in E, then L/M/N are left locked.
Is there a way to do this without coding, just using regular IF() in the cell directly; IF(ISTEXT(E3)=MORNING, Unlock, KeepLock)? I know that's nowhere close to being a legitimate statement, but it's the best way I can translate my thoughts.
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?
i just want to use vlookup and hlookup to give me the row and column headings for 30 to 40 sesor at a time.... but i keep getting #n/a whenever the functions meet a table of more than one column! (reduced workbook attached)
it should surely be simple to get this data - but i've struggled to no avail. I thought that having the four separate worksheets was the problem - but i haven't had any look even when i dump the data into a single worksheet!
i basically just want excel to return the cell reference of a sensor number which exists in a table. sometimes a sensor can appear more than once, but its not very common and i could happily work around that by doing the manual search (ctrl f, find all).
any advice would be very much appreciated, i'm struggling and the number of sensors i need to test will increase in the coming months.. please help!
should i even be using vlookup and hlookup? ive tried all the other excel functions, but they don't seem to be useful?
