# LOOK For The First Full Cell In Column That Is In Reference To Cell On The Left?

Sep 4, 2013

I have got this working so far:

=LOOKUP(D9,'Financial Snapshot'!\$H\$5:\$I\$95)
D9 = 1.01
D10 = 1.02 etc

## Reference To Cell Directly To The Left

Aug 10, 2009

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)

## Alternative To Full Column Reference In Formulas

Sep 6, 2007

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.

## Move Down Column And For Every Blank Cell Clear Contents Of Cell To The Left?

Jun 1, 2014

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

## Cell Reference- Able To Reference Two Cells To The Left Even As More Cells Are Added

Jun 11, 2008

I have 5 columns set up: A,B,C,D,E
D is the sum of A and B
E is the sum of A,B,and C

As I add in a new column to the right of C (call it C2), I need D (which has shifted over one) to sum A,B, and C.

I also need E (which has also shifted over one) to sum A,B,C, and C2.

Essentially I need a function in a cell that will be able to reference two cells to the left even as more cells are added.

## Reference To Cell Column Letter By Reference To Another Cell Value

Apr 25, 2014

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.

## Excel 2010 :: Shifting Cells Left And Then Up If Left Cell Is Blank?

May 8, 2014

I have a 2010 excel sheet containing 14 columns and 45082 rows in total. I am quite illiterate when it comes to writing macros but I know that what I need can be achieved with a set of codes.

To be more clear, I inserted two tables below. The first one represents the current data structure, and the second one is the way I want my data to look like.

Current data structure looks like
Variable 1
Variable 2
Variable 3

## Visual Basic: Select The Column (cell) Left To The One That's Currently Selected.

May 2, 2008

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?

## Reference Cell In Macro Using Row & Column Numbers From Cell

Aug 11, 2008

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!

## How To Validate If Left Cell Value And Left Cell Above Value Are Not Same

Sep 16, 2013

I have a column that is giving unwanted value . dont know the reason as that excel file has been created by some other guy and I just started working on it .

My Question is how to move to 2 cells left(A for example) from from that unwanted value column. and check if
A is equal to cell above it , means B Cell(Row above A but same column).

As my excel file is totally based on Forms, Macros, I am not quite familiar with macros.

Is there any way to put if condition in one cell (column) and drag it all the way down which should work for all the values in these 3 column.

And also if A=B then I want to make that unwanted value cell="".

## Reference Every Nth Cell In A Column

Aug 26, 2009

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?)

## Keep Reference To A Cell When Column Is Deleted

Nov 28, 2007

I have a spreadsheet in excel with scheduling information, each group of data (job) is made up over 2 columns and 6 rows and is in a block (this is so it is easy to view and manouvre)

I have a link in another worksheet that extracts information from the cell if a criteria in the group is met!

At the end of each day I need to delete the columns (B and C, which make up that day) in the schedule.

When I do this all the references in the other worksheet are messed up, even though the next day is moved to columns B and C.

I would like the link to the other worksheet to automaticaly recognise the new values in column B and C as the reference.

## Layout Cell Reference Column

Jul 8, 2009

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)

## Column Reference To Cell Transfer

Jan 18, 2010

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,

## 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?

## Function For Reference Of Cell Row/column

Mar 5, 2009

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),

## Change Column And Cell Reference Name?

Apr 25, 2014

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:

Instead of =CONCATENATE(A4, " ", B4)

have

=CONCATENATE(FirstName4, " ", LastName4)

## Reference Column To A Single Cell

Jan 11, 2007

I'd like to reference Column A to a single cell in a different sheet.

=StoresServiced!A2

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

## Change Reference Cell From Column To Row

Jul 25, 2008

I am using this formula

=IF(\$A5="Select","",MAX(INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE(\$A5,"/","")&"m1440"&"!d:d")))

It looks for the sheet based on A5
It finds the max number from the sheet in Column D

This is what i would like to do please....

On this found sheet - Column A has dates in this format yyyy.mm.dd

I would like to enter a date in a cell (say for example AA5 on main sheet)

Can the formula above be adapted to:

Look for sheet based on A5
then
Look at date entered in AA5
then
use Vllookup to find row containing date in AA5 (making table range the ENTIRE SHEET found based on A5)
then
Return value from Column D

## Using VLookup (But Reference A Cell As Column Index)

Aug 10, 2012

How can I do the following....if for example I have the following vlookup;

Code:
=vlookup(A12, 'sheet 2 \$A\$2:\$ID50\$, 3, false

How can I change the column index i.e. the 3, to reference to a cell.

Code:
=vlookup(A12, 'sheet 2 \$A\$2:\$ID50\$, H1, false

The above example doesn't work but I'm sure something can be done using TEXT or VALUE

## Incrementing Cell Reference In Column For Data In Row?

Sep 7, 2012

Very simply put, let's say there are examples numbers 1,2,3,4 put in cells A1 to A4 (vertical) and more example numbers 50,60,70,80 are put in cells A6 to D6 (horizontal)

What one formula can be written in B1 that I can copy down to B4 that will make B1=A1+A6, and B2=A2+B6, and B3=A3+C6, and B4=A4+D6

## Text To Row Instead Of Text To Column Using Comma Separated Values And Associate Cell To The Left

May 16, 2013

Is there a macro that will allow me to create text to row from a comma separated cell, but also associate the cell to its left automatically?

The table below exemplifies what I need. The top of the spreadsheet is how my data is currently. The portion after the break is how I would like it to be.

I have over 600 rows that needs this done.

1,2,3,4
B

## Change Formula Cell Reference Based On Another Cell Reference

Jan 8, 2012

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
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?

## Conditional Multiple Column Unlock Via Cell Reference?

Aug 2, 2013

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.

## Make Cell Reference Column Variable + Row Absolute?

Jun 18, 2014

But I found nowhere an example on how to make a the column part of a cell reference variable and the row absolute.

Is

K\$10

a valid expression?

In opposite to \$K10 is must work this way

## 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?

## INDIRECT - Sum Contents Of Column On Another Worksheet Up To Certain Cell Reference

Jan 24, 2012

Trying to use INDIRECT to sum the contents of a column on another worksheet upto a certain cell reference which is in another cell on the worksheet.

=SUM(INDIRECT("Sheet1!A4:Sheet1!"&B1))

I have taken it back to simply having sheet1 with numbers in A4 to A23, then sheet2 with A23 in cell B1, and the formula above it C9, but I keep getting #REF!.

The formula works fine if on sheet1 without the worksheet names in it. Formula evaluation gets to =SUM(INDIRECT("Sheet1!A4:Sheet1!A23")) then gives =SUM(#REF!)

## Return Cell Reference From Multi-Column Lookup

Dec 13, 2006

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?
