I know how to turn off automatic and manual calculation modes manually in excel or through VB. But is there a way to make the automatic calculation mode ignore changes in certian cells? It would be good if you could right click on a cell and turn this on/off as an option. I assume I will have to code this in vb somehow, but I am a novice. Something like:
Sub test123() For Cells = Value.Range("I7:R22") Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Like I basically want part of my sheet to be set to manual calculation mode, and partially to automatic...
I have in cell A2 a number, and my VBA is as follows;
If Target.Address(0, 0) = "A2" Then Application.EnableEvents = False Range("a" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)(2).Value = Target.Value Application.EnableEvents = True End If
This basically adds any new number typed into cell A2 into a list which starts in A3 then continues down through column A.
I also have another part of my VBA which says;
If Target.Column = 1 Then Application.EnableEvents = False Cells(Target.Row, 2).Value = Date + Time Application.EnableEvents = True End If
This part works fine and adds a date stamp to my blank cells in column B whenever I manually type anything into column A, however, when the first part of the VBA works the date stamp is updated into cell B2 and I want it to update next to the new entry that has just been added into column A by the first VBA doing its job.
I think I need to change;
To something that refers to a Range of cells (would be B3-B5000 for example) but my knowledge on how to change that part of the VBA has now ran out!!
I'm trying to turn calculation to manual, but there does not seem to be an Options button under tools on the mac I'm using. I've checked another mac and it is also missing. I'll probably end up using a pc for the calculations anyway, but I was wondering if anyone knew what was up?
Is there a way to make excel 2007 pop up a warning whenever calculation is set to manual by a macro or any other means? I have on several occasions noticed formulas not working, only to discover that calculation was set to manual without me noticing. And then I don't know how much of my work may have been afffected. This seems like a pretty vital piece of information, and I am surprised that it's not made more obvious.
I am trying to calculate the present value of a terminal period in Excel. The manual calculation and excel PV function are off by about $98,000. Both calculations are using the same capitalization rate and terminal life. My PV Excel formula is as follows: =PV(discount rate-growth rate,remaining term (years),-terminal cash flow,,0)*present value factor in last year of cash flow) What is causing the difference in values? Is there something in the Excel formula that is causing the difference?
I have a set of procedures that require auto recalc to be on to work correctly. I've tried application.volatile and Application.CalculateFull with no luck. I'm trying to put together code that makes sure recalc is on, but that first determines the current recalc status and then changes it back to Manual when necessary. I don't know how to determine the current status. The following code should work if the red sections are fixed.
Sub TempAuto() Dim CurrentState As unknown CurrentState = Application.Calculation status Application.Calculation = xlAutomatic If CurrentState = Manual Then Application.Calculation = xlManual End If End Sub
Is there a way that I can set a single worksheet in a workbook to always be on manual calculation, but keep all other sheet in the workbook set to automatic?
I want to be able to open the workbook, any calculations to perform automatically and then i will select the 'manual' sheet and perform these calculations manually. I also need to these settings to always apply each time i open the workbook.
In as much as I would like to heed the advice of this site to avoid setting excel calculation to MANUAL, I think I have no choice this time. I have a file that uses a lot of SUMPRODUCT(--) and array formulas. DSUM would have been faster but this file I am working on will be sent to users who barely knows excel. When they need to insert rows, the DSUM criteria will have to be reestablished and I do not think they are capable of that. Anyway...when calculcation is set to manual, all excel does to warn users is the little test "Calculate" in the status bar. What I would have liked is that a red button with text "CLICK TO REFRESH" to appear when calculcation is needed i.e. status bars is showing "Calculate".
I want a specific workbook to be always on manual but when I open other workbooks I want them to remain on automatic even though the first workbook is set on manual through vba code. Is that possible to be done?
This is the code I run:
Private Sub Workbook_Activate() With Application .Calculation = xlManual .MaxChange = 0.001 .CalculateBeforeSave = False
I know that Application. Calculation refers to all open workbooks but I don't know the code to specify the manual calculation to this workbook only while others are open.
I have this codes which will only trigger if I manually execute it. What do I need to do to trigger it automatically whenever the worksheet change.
Below is the codes:
Dim c As Range, myFontCol As Integer, myCol As Integer
For Each c In ActiveSheet.Range("f7:g20000") myFontCol = xlAutomatic myCol = xlNone Select Case c.Value Case Is = 1, 2, 3 myCol = 34 Case Is = 4, 5, 10, 20: myCol = 43 Case Is = 30, 40, 50: myCol = 6 Case Is = 70, 100, 140, 150 myCol = 5 myFontCol = 2
When i have automatic calculation on, excel freezes. When i push the escape key i get focus back to excel but then it nearly immediatley loses focus again. I have to keep hitting excel to navigate anywhere with excel. By turning calculations to manual it no longer freezes. Is there a way to identify whats causing this freeze, I went through and deleted nearly all events? Why would auto calculate freeze excel if no changes are being made to a formula?
I have largish workbooks (10MB) with a variety of formulas and lookups to generate tables and charts. Calculation is ALWAYS set to Automatic, but sometimes (not always) the formulas fail to update when values are changed. Sometimes F9 will force calculation, sometimes Ctrl + Alt + F9, sometimes (especially with charts) I have to close the workbook and reopen before they will update. The workbooks contain macros but none are running when this happens. A search of your forum indicated that this question has arisen several times before, but I haven't seen a definitive answer.
I am working in a fairly large worksheet, and I realized that when I make changes to it, sometimes some of the cells do no recalculate. The only way I can get them to recalculate is by clicking into the cell, and then hitting return.
The issue is that I don't know which ones are failing to recalculate unless I click into each individual cell and hit return to see if it changes. This would be logistically impossible given the size of my sheet.
Has this ever happened to anyone else? Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to fix this issue?
I have several data validation style drop down menus, and I basically don't want excel to recognize changes in these cells and execute a calculation of the entire workbook. Since there is a large number of calculations being performed in the workbook the sheet gets really slow.
Overall the way excel "automatically calculates" really screws me up a lot. This built in functionality could be a lot smarter in my opinion.
I need to average data following the format below by average per week by week/store combination e.g. wk 1/store A average is 6.
Week Store Sales
1 A 7
I can easily use SUMIFS to achieve this, but I have a large amount of data between the weeks of 1-52, a dozen different stores and I will be adding to this. I don't want to have to enter new SUMIFS every time I enter a new wk/store combination. How do I get this info to automatically calculate?
I have this problem where the SUM function is returning 0. The context is this- I am simulating values using RAND() and looking up the values corersponding to probabilities from a different tables. I then use the TRIM function to return the value I need, and the final number is of a "general" format.
This is the formula in the column I wish to sum:
And this is dragged down the column.
When I change the cells using =VALUE(cell) the SUM function then returns the required value. Oddly the SUMPRODUCT function seems to work.
Calculation is set to automatic and the cell has been formatted as a number.
I have a table with rows that keep growing. But I have place formula in the whole of column F, i.e. F2:F66565. When I import information from MS Access into column A to E, the formula in F does not work, until I copy from F2 to the end manually. I have tried using Tools, Options, Calculation, Automatic. That doesn't work, I have also tried F9, that doesn't work and I have also tried checking Precision as Displayed under the calculation tax in Tools-Options, that doesn't work either.
I have workbooks in which summary tables are generated by lookup formulas. Tables are on different sheets but all use the same lookup value by referring to a cell on the 'master' sheet. The lookup value appears in cells on all sheets, by reference to the master sheet (e.g. [formula] = mastersheet!$B$2).
The master sheet contains the main summary table and is copied and detached for distribution, using a macro. For practical reasons, this is done in two stages, first copying the sheet within the workbook (to make minor alterations), then moving it to a new book to save and distribute.
This is where the problem arises. After the sheet has been detached, we find that if we now change the lookup value on the master sheet in the original file, the tables on that sheet will update normally, but the cells on other sheets remain frozen at the previous value and the tables on those sheets do not update.
The only way round the problem is by Shift + Ctrl + Alt + F9. (Maybe I should add that all my workbooks are always set to automatic calculation.)
The macro itself is not the cause of the problem; if we follow the same procedure manually, the result is the same. However, if we move the sheet in one step, eliminating the intermediate copying stage, the problem does not arise. But this is evading the problem, not solving it, and I would be reluctant to have to resort to this.
The original problem remains as stated, viz. failure of automatic calculation.
I have several option groups (Y & N in each) linked to cells to display TRUE / FALSE depending on which option is selected in each group. I have another cell which I want to apply conditional formatting to if EITHER Y or N is selected in all groups. At present I use COUNTIF to check for FALSE=0 in the linked cells which works if all the answers are Y. How do I apply CF if there is a mixture of Y & N (TRUE / FALSE) in all groups (I'm not sure if I've explained that well or not).
I have a macro that transfer data from one sheet to another (I have sheets called Form and Sent). Basically, the users enters data in the Form Sheet. After they're done, the data gets transferred to the Sent Sheet. I don't want users to be able to modify the data in the Sent sheet. I just want them to see the records. Also, i want the sheet protected from having users manually inputting datas. I can't accomplish this when I protect the sheet, since it is giving me an error while running the macro to transfer data. Is there a workaround?
I have what I'd thought would be a simple problem, but I haven't yet been able to track down an answer. I am trying to manually rank a list (column) of players' names. What I'd like to be accomplish is something to the effect of being able to enter a value for a single player, then have the cells resort themselves AND update the list.
RANK PLAYER NAME 1 Jon 2 Jim 3 Joe 4 Jack 5 Jane
I'd like to be able to manually change A5, for example, to 2 and then have the list update itself to read:
RANK PLAYER NAME 1 Jon 2 Jack 3 Jim 4 Joe 5 Jane
I've toyed with macros that took care of the sorting piece but I'm still left with duplicate numbers (ranks) that I must then manually change and/or fill down. There are over 500 entries (rows) so this can become a bit tiresome.
