# Make A Cell's Values Become A Formula

May 23, 2008

I have on my Sheet named "Data" in Cell K4

=CONCATENATE(L16,O25,L18,O25,K20,S25,N22)

The values of that cell become a formula.

I try to make a macro that pastes 'Data'!K4 into 'Data'!L3 and then have that formula functioning in cell 'Sheet1'!A31.

The problem is when I try to make a macro to do this it will always paste the values that were recorded during the macro rather than the unique formula that is created via cell 'Data'!K4 at the time.

Is there any way to have A31 actively using the values that are created with 'Data'!K4? at all times?

## Make Formula Based On Two Incremental Values?

Feb 26, 2013

How do I make a formula based on two incremental values

e.g I drag this down

=ROWS(A\$1:\$A1)*B\$4

where B4 is say 0.2

I will get

0.2
0.4
0.6 etc

But what if I want to start from 5 so it will be like this

5.2
5.4
5.6 etc

## Store Values Within A Cell To Make Them Selectable?

May 29, 2009

I do data entry for a webstore and one cell is used to map out the exact product category/subcategory path. I currently have to copy the appropriate path from a long list on one page and then paste it into the cell. I have to do this a hundred times a day. It would be nice if each cell within that column can have these values stored in them so I can just click on the cell and open up a drag down box and select the needed value. Is this possible to do in Excel?

## How To Make Tab Names Dependent On Cell Values

Oct 17, 2013

Is it possible to make tab names dependent on Cell Values?

I have 12 Tabs in Workbook 1

Tab 1 = "COVER PAGE"

I would like Tab 2 ='COVER PAGE'!A1

Tab 3 ='COVER PAGE'!B1
Tab 4 ='COVER PAGE'!C1
etc...

Is this possible so that I can add cells (between B1 and C1) at a later date and have all the tab names change depending on the values I put in the cells?

## Can I Make A Formula That Will Highlight A Cell

Sep 1, 2009

I have a large spreadsheet with many pieces of equipment in it. There are a few piece that I would like to highlight should thier computer license go out of date, or even better 30 days prior. I have a Feild with the Expire dates but it is at the end of the spreadsheet not in plain sight. Is there a way to make my Equipment description column highlight when the date in the other column reaches the current date (or 30 Days before). I have cut and pasted the part of the spreadsheet into a new file to make it easier to read and hid all the none important feilds.

## Formula To Make Cell Blank Instead Of Zero

Oct 29, 2009

I am looking for a formula that will work with my current formula, and check that cells a1 and b1 contains information. If they do contain info then the original formula should carry on as usual and leave the answer in cell c1. I also need it so when no information has been entered in cells A1 and B1, C1 will be blank instead of containing a zero.

This is the formula I have at the moment:
=IF(SUM(A1=0,B1>0),B1-A1,"No Charge?")

A B C
10.1810.82

## Make Formula Pick Up Filename From A Different Cell...

Feb 9, 2010

I have a formula that looks like this : ='G:STOCKS[1001 Stock.xls]Matl%'!\$I\$32

There are hundreds of similar formulas, all referencing different cells in the same file. The �1001� bit refers to the date, and next month it will need to say �1002� to pick up the new month's file. I would like to hold the �1002� bit in a cell (say A1), so that at month end, I just change that one cell, and all the formulas will point to the new file, but I�m not sure how to work that into the formula.

## Combining Two Values In Two Separate Cells To Make A Cell Reference Or Index Refer.

Jul 15, 2009

I want to use a value in one cell as a row designation, and a value in another cell as a column designation. Ultimately, the values will be text which will refer to row and column headers. What formula would allow me to do this? example:

A1 contains B
B1 contains 2
B2 contains "tribbles"

An imaginary function might go like this........

## Possible To Make Sum Formula Based Off Dates Entered In Different Cell?

Jul 28, 2014

How would you write a formula where the sum depends on what dates you enter in A1 and B1?

Date cells C1 to C365

A1 start date
B1 end date

Example:
A1 = 1/1/14
B1 = 1/31/14

So cells C1 to C31 will be added.

"=sum(c1:offset(c1,(b1-a1),0))

This formula works, except if you enter a different starting dates, it just counts from c1.

## Make Formula Cell Appear Empty Until Data Is Entered

Jun 10, 2006

I'm creating a "universal-fluctuating" vendor inventory return worksheet for a auto parts store that consist of one criteria (cores, warranties, or N/R ) and will return one or two results of core cost and/or unit cost. This part of the task I have accomplished by using a drop down list for my criteria and my results will appear in two different columns using a Vlookup table. The problem is due to inventory fluctuating from cores and waranties on a month by month basis, vendor requiremnts differ for the number of units returned, and last make the boss happy on ink and papers supplies :D I was wondering if it is possible loop my code in a given column where it will move my code to the next row untill I reach a grand total?

## Formula To Make A Cell From Column A Meet Closest Value In Column B

## How To Make Space Between 2 Values In VBA

Jan 31, 2013

I have the following line of code:

Code:

Range("D" & LastRow).Value = Area.Text + Level.Text

Area and Level are both comboboxes on a userform, I want them to both go to the same cell but with a space between them. Right now it looks like "AreaLevel" but I want it to look like "Area Level".

I assume that I can do this by making each value in the combobox have a space after it but I would like to know the proper way of doing it...

## How To Make IF Work On Formulas And Not Values

Nov 18, 2013

I've developed a spreadsheet that shows what errors people made in their spreadsheets. I compare cell A1 in spreadsheet 1 (original) against cell A1 in spreadsheet 2 (final), in spreadsheet 3. Spreadsheet 3 shows a "-" if the cell they wrote was OK, and shows the new, correct value if they made an error, as follows:

=IF('Final'!A5='Original'!A5, "-",'Final'!A5)

The problem is, this only works if I take the original spreadsheets, which contain formulae in each cell, and paste them into a new spreadsheet using paste values.

Is it possible for the IF function to search the formula in a cell, and not the value?

## Paste Special Values Of A Formula To A Cell But NOT From A Defined Source Cell

Jul 6, 2008

my destination cells will have formulas like:

='E:My WorkTestData[CCC.xlsx]Input'!\$S\$31

Everything works fine. But I don't want the destination cells to display the full formula, but the actual Value only

I thought of a way to build a script that first builds the formula to one cell then Copy Paste Special value of that Cell to my desired Cell.

But when the code runs The cursor moves back and forth all the time...

## Make Values Add To A Certain Sum By Assigning A Digit Or Chipher To It

Apr 23, 2009

I have a column of numerical values: fields a1 to a10. Then, I have four fields � c1 to c4 � in which I want sums of some chosen values from column a to be summed up. Eg., c1 is to be a2+a3+a9, c2 is to be a4, c3 is void, c4 is a1+a8. The other a fields are ignored, and no a field will be counted twice. Now, I want to put something �*a letter or a number or so �*into the fields b1 to b10, that makes the aforestanding value sum up to a certain field in column c. Like, I put a "1", or maybe an "a", into b2 and b3 and b9, and that makes a2, a3, and a9 sum up to c1. So I'd need something that says: if this cell is "1", add the value in the cell to your left to the sum that makes the value in c1. As you can tell by my writing, I'm no geek in these matters.

## How To Make Y Axis Values In Chart Jump From 0 To 40

Jul 17, 2013

I have a chart with percentages and most of them are >40% so I would like te values to start at 40 in the y axis but I would also want to have the 0% show (as it stands there is nothing there) It is a double y axis chart where the % is shown with just a dot and the other Y axis is the actual column. Im not sure if I'm making sense but I would just like to have the 1st value in the secondary y axis be 0 and the 2nd value be 40, and from that point forward scale in intervals of 5%.

So the values in the y axis are: 0%, 40%, 45%, 50%......

## Make Exact Copy With Only Values And Layout?

Nov 20, 2013

I have a file and i want to make an exact copy with only values and the layout.

I can do copy paste each sheet in the new file one by one. with first the values and then the layout.

But the file has lot of sheets so it would be great to find a faster way then do it one by one.

## MACRO: Make A Table Of Calculated Values

Apr 19, 2006

I have made spreadsheet that calculates my total cost of making ice cream mix based on ingredient costs of two variables (Van_Gal, and Choc_Gal), for example 550 gallons and 750 gallons respectively. The worksheet calculates the total cost of making the Vanilla Gallons and the Chocolate Gallons. I�m not a VBA or Macro wiz, and now I�d like to Make a macro that will allow me to make a �table� of calculated costs associated with different assumed Vani_Gal and Choc_Gal amounts and then print the values; and then go down a row and print the cost of another amount of Vani_Gal and Choc_Gals until some preset end has been reached. For example:

Van_Gal; Choc_Gal;TOTOutput;avg cost
550; 750; 1300; \$4,000.00; \$3.08
600; 700; 1300; \$4,250.00; \$3.27

Let�s say that I want to know what the tot cost and avg cost per gallon for various combinations of Vanilla and Chocolate Mix from 550 V and 750 Choc for various combos and have it increase in iterations of 10 Gallons (i.e. 560 Van and 740 Choc); Maybe I'd use a " loop" that repeats calculations and prints them for different combinations of Van/choc until 800 Gals Van and 500 gal Choc. Once I have a table of values, I could sort it and find an optimal production level (with the Minimum avg cost). how to make a macro that can crank out a table like this?

Feb 24, 2009

If i wanted to tack on something to the end of a formula so that it would make every 50 add 1 (example: 200 would convert to 204, because 200 divided by 50 is 4).

## Using Cell Values In A Formula With VBA

Jun 12, 2008

how to use a cell value in a formula with VBA.

For example, I have the following
FinalRow = Cells(65536, 1).End(xlUp).Row
CYGP = Cells(Final Row, 11).Column
Cells(FinalRow + 2, CYGP).Select

I now need to be able to use the value that's located in the selected cell elsewhere in the spreadsheet. I've tried the following:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=R[FinalRow]C[CYGP]

This was an attempt to put the value that's in Cells(FinalRow, CYGP) into my active cell, but it's not working...

## Make Copy / Paste Values Macro More Efficient When Calculating

Feb 17, 2014

I got a macro to copy and paste values onto another tab within my worksheet. I have a lot of data and currently takes about 30 seconds to calculate and paste. Not sure if its an issue with my macro or with my computer (Mac - Excel 2011).

Here is an example of my macro:

Sub SimulateWeek()
If Range("AdvanceWeek").Value = "Week 1" Then
Range("Week1B").Copy
Sheets("Schedule - Results").Range("C2").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues

[Code]....

(this continues on until 'ElseIf Range("AdvanceWeek").Value = "Week 31"....etc). So you can see I have the same code repeated 31 times.
