Link Pop-up On Cell Select To Cell

Sep 24, 2007

I'm hoping to hover my mouse over a cell to display text as popup. This text is linked to a cell and is dynamic.

I'm only wanting this feature to display info (in the popup) not link to a website

Currently I've dodged my way around the issue by using a hyperlink for the sole purpose of taking advantage of its hover popup feature.

The problem is that a hyperlink popup is limited to 255 characters so i can't display much text.

Is there is any VBA code or add-in's that take advantage of the mouse cursor position to display a text popup?

Kind of like the Comment feature but for dynamic use.

Formula That Uses Link In A Cell To Create Offset Link

Jun 28, 2013

I have two worksheets, one with detail monthly information and one with YTD information. So let's say the three numbers I want to capture in the YTD sheet are in columns B, G and I on the monthly sheet. January's data might be in B5, G5 and I5. February's data is in B12, G12 and I12 and so on.

On the YTD sheet in cell C2 I link to Monthly!B5 and in C3 I link to Monthly!B12 so cells C2 to C13 on the YTD sheet show the monthly totals from column B on the detail sheet. On the YTD sheet, cells C20 to C31 show the monthly totals from column G on the monthly sheet, so cells G5, G12, etc. And finally, cells C40 to C51 on the YTD sheet show monthly totals form column I on the monthly sheet.

In the past I've always created all these links manually. After creating the links in C2 to C13 on the YTD sheet, is there a way to use a formula in C21 that uses the link in C2 to create a link for G5?

Copy Or Link Formatting From Conditionally Formatted Cell To Another Cell?

Aug 12, 2014

I have a column who's content is determined via about 6 nested if statements from data on that row. That cell is then conditionally formatted to a certain color based on the text that is ultimately printed from the nested ifs (simply an extra visual legend for the text). All of this contributing info and about 1000 lines items make a very large and difficult to print page. What I am trying to do is a make a summary sheet that simply takes the index number of these 1000 rows and copies or links the conditional formatting of the mentioned cell onto this number on another sheet. I have already linked this status cell and put it adjacent to the index number which works well in that with two columns I can show the index and status but if I could combine the color of the status cell onto the index cell, it would be even better. I am pretty sure another conditional format for this summary sheet would not be possible or be extremely complex since the contents of the index cell I am conditionally formatting have no bearing on the conditions for the format. Was hoping there is some VBA magic that could simply mimic the conditional formatting from one cell and put it on another.

How To Link Format Of A Cell To Another Cell Along With The Value

Apr 19, 2013

I am working on a file with multiple tabs. I have an output sheet which brings values from different tabs on to the output.

I am bringing the values using a simple VLOOKUP.

What I would like is to bring to the output sheet not only the value from the inner sheets, but also the cell color.

The cells are not colored using any logic or using conditional formatting, otherwise i would use the same logic or put the same conditional formatting for the output. The cells are colored by the users arbitrarily.

For Example, please refer the sample file. In this file, when I select Company A, the values are from the tab Company A, but the cell colors should also be the same as in COmpany A. When i select Company B, along with values, the cell colors should also change as per what is on the tab company B. Is this possible?

Excel 2010 :: Select Range From Given Cell And To Last Row And Column Of That Cell?

Oct 2, 2012

I am using 2010 and want to select a range starting at the same cell all of the time (regardless of whether or not it has contents - so let's say B7. Starting at B7, I want the range to include all of the columns starting at B and go to the end of all of the columns. Then I want the range to include all of the rows starting at B7 and end at the last row. I will eventually copy this range and paste it on another worksheet start on a specific cell of another worksheet. (Perhaps, we can add a name to this range).

Link To Another Cell

Nov 17, 2008

I would like to have a link in a merged set of cells that puts the insertion point to another cell. Scenario: In cell k30, the user puts in the amount of credit card debt a individual has, and scripts the user based on that information. Later on, they get a more accurate running total of the amount of debt and need to change the amount in k30 for an accurate quote. After ther running total, in cell j172(a merged box for instructions) i instruct the user to be sure to enter the new total in cell K30.

1. Is there a way to put a button or a link that would put the insertion point back up to K30 automatically, but allow the user to change it themselves and not change it automatically?

VBA To Link Cell Between Different Sheets?

Mar 12, 2014

I have a macro that copies a sheet and renames it:

Copies "Q114" and renames it to "Q214".
Q114 is defined as OLD in my VBA code
Q214 is defined as NEW in my VBA code.

I also have a third sheet, call it "results", which picks up cell values, ie cell A1 in "Q114", but now I want it to use cell A1 "Q214". The values hasn't been filled in, so I need a link between them:

Use A Cell Value In A Address Link...

Mar 9, 2009

I have is a summary worksheet with two columns. One column is for Project ID number and the other is an address link to a specific cell in the worksheet corresponding to the Project ID. Perhaps the best way to explain this is by giving an example:

Project ID (Column 1)

Balance (Column 2)
='C:Financial Sheets[00-111.xlsx]Phase_21'!$H$1

As you can see the spreadsheets are named after the Project ID number. What I would like to do, if possible, is instead of typing in the name of the spreadsheet for each project in column 2 (Balance), I could somehow reference the cell value in column 1 (Project ID). Something like this:

Project ID (Column 1)

Balance (Column 2)
='C:Financial Sheets["A2".xlsx]Phase_21'!$H$1..........

Link Image To Cell

Apr 10, 2009

In Excel, I have a sheet for each team that I manage. Each sheet lists the team members and displays their picture below their names. Some people are on multiple teams/sheets.

I have a master list with everybody's name and picture that I copy and paste the pictures from when putting a team together. This has become a very tedious process.

Is there a way I can type the person's name on a team sheet and have their picture automatically appear below their name? I don't know if this can be done with some kind of lookup or if it will involve VB. I tried making the picture the background of an Autoshape or comment, but I could not figure out how to dynamically change the picture based on the name in a cell.

Lookup Cell Fed Via A DDE Link

Sep 12, 2007

I am trying to build a stock watchlist in excel 2007 with a dynamic link to a DDE server (paid for).There is no add-in or plug-in, I just CTL ALT & drag each code from a watchlist in the program I am using and place it in a cell, however can only choose one data field at a time. There are 14 data fields and over 150 codes in my list which makes 2100 cells. (My guess is about 3 days work)

I would like to just enter the stock code in say column A (A3) and with each DDE data field (e.g. lastprice, open, cose, high etc) entered in subsequent columns have it lookup the stock code in cell A3 and return the correct value based on the code in column A, rather than entering each cell individually.

Is it possible to write a macro or vba code to create the cell formula so I can just fill down and save myself 3 days work?

The DDE server I am using is formatted like this:




I thought I might be able to do something like the following, but it doesn't seem to work.


Note: The DDE server can only be accessed while the other program is running and is password protected
