Msg Box Based On Relative Vba Reference

Jul 22, 2009

Im trying to get a message box to pop up if the result of a count formula is greater than one; ie. in a list of data to warn of repeats of a certain key reference.

Ive never had a drama with putting a message box in before but ive only based it off a constant reference whereas in this case, it will be based on a relative reference; for example, when inputted a value in A2, that has the same value in A1, the count formula in B2 will be 2, so i want a message box to come up. Same goes if the same value was put in A3, and B3 was greater than

Macro To Run Serial# 1 To 10 Based On Relative Reference

Apr 22, 2008

I need a macro that can run a serial# 1 t0 10 (or more or less) with A1 being starting point. Here is my illustration data.

Coloumn:A Coloumn:B
1 IrfanAneeza
2 Scooby Dooby Do
3 Dooby Dooby Do
4 Yaba Daba Doo

However, there is a little kicker in it. The range of coloum:B varies all the time i.e. B:B could be 1 to 10, it could be 1 to 3 etc. Thus, macro should list serial#'s based on the coloumn B:B range of data.

Excel 2010 :: How To Move Graph Based On Relative Cell Reference

Dec 8, 2011

did in [URL] but my issue is complicated by not knowing what cell I need to move the graph to.

I am using Excel 2010 and I am a realitive novice at writing VBA code.

In My spreadsheet, I have a list of properties and some related cost info. From week to week, the number of properties varies. Some days I will have 6 properties and others I could have 100. Because of this, I need to make all of my references relative to other cells. I am having trouble repositioning the graphs that I have created from the data to be 2 cells below the label I have created for the graph (which is a merged cell covering Columns B:I on a row 3 rows below the last property in the report.

So far, I have:

Dim r1 As Range, r2 As Range, GraphRange As Range
Cells(2, 1).Select

Excel 2007 :: Convert Absolute Reference Into Relative Reference

Feb 4, 2014

I have encountered some difficulty in modifying a macro I wrote into what I need. I created a macro that searches a column (Column C) for a cell value of, "stop", and then it copies everything above that cell and pastes it onto another sheet. In the sample data set that I was using, "stop" first occurred in cell C541, so the macro copies C1:C540 and pastes it onto another sheet. The problem is that the macro created an absolute reference to C540. What I desire is for the macro to use the 'Find' function to locate the first occurrence of, "stop", offset one cell above that cell, and then reference the active cell (which was positioned by these last two steps) in the range that should be copied. Basically, I'm hoping to have cells C1 through the active cell copied and then pasted onto another sheet.

Code below.

Sub FAIL()
' FAIL Macro
Selection.Find(What:="stop", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt _

[Code] .......

Using Relative Reference In Macros

Feb 4, 2010

a user i'm assisting wants to calculate totals by recording a macro that sums all the rows in a column using relative cell references. this is because the user runs a report that pulls in data that varies. one week the report may contain 40 rows that need to be totaled, and the next week there may be 60 rows that need to be totaled.

here's what i did:place cursor in cell where i want total to appear
go to VIEW menu, MACROS tab, and click USE RELATIVE REFERENCES
enter name, description, assign shortcut key
go to FORMULAS menu and click AUTOSUM
press RETURN

when i test the macro out on columns containing the same amount of rows, it works fine. but when i run the macro on a column with more rows, it only totals the amount of rows contained in the original macro. see attached.

Relative Cell Reference In Macro

May 8, 2009

I have recorded macros in the attached file to highlight cells that contain matching initials by using conditional formatting on the first cell and copying it to the remaining cells. The problem is that if rows are inserted above that change the first cell reference then the macro no longer works properly. Is there a way to use a relative cell reference within the macro? The macro buttons are in cells A4 to A13. I have no VB experience and created the macros by recording keystrokes and using tips found in this forum.

Relative Reference Not Working When Using Macros?

Jun 16, 2014

I'm trying to do is delete a row of chosen cells in my form (form is locked with a password) using a macro then return back to the first cell below the deleted row. When I run the macro what's happening is that it's returning back to the cell chosen while writing the macro (which is at the very top A7). So if I'm several rows below A7, it deletes the row and then returns all the way back to the top of the form causing the user to have to scroll back down to where they were

Change Relative Reference To Absolute

Apr 4, 2014

I have an Excel workbook with multiple worksheets. One of the worksheets has a live data feed for stock updates. I extract data from the live feed (it's in multiple sentences) and pull it into 6 columns. In another worksheet, I pull those 6 columns into the sheet through the use of Index / Match. That second sheet has additional formulas that essentially analyze the data. As the data refreshes, the existing data moves down the column.

What I didn't think about was the fact that at times, a stock may be listed several times because different brokers are offering updates. Because I used Index / Match, it will look for the first match from the top and display that data in the relevant columns. Unfortunately, some of the data needs to stay with the matching row (and stock ticker) but because of the way I wrote the formulas in Index / Match, it just finds the first matching target and displays that data.

I can correct this by using an absolute reference ($) but I can't find a way to "copy down" formulas using absolute references. I also have one column of cells that contain 1 absolute reference and one relative reference.

I'll re-write this manually if I have to but I have 1,800 cells to change.

Relative Reference To Work Sheet

Nov 27, 2006

I am dealing with a workbook that will hold an undetermined amount of worksheets. Each of these worksheets will have have a series of numbers that are summed to a total within one cell. Lets say cell A10. For every spreadsheet, no matter what, this number will be stored in cell A10.

My first sheet will then be a master listing of all the other sheets in the workbook. In column A I will have the names of each sheet and in column B I want excel to list the value of A10 for the corresponding sheet listed in column A

So normally it would look like this on the master sheet

A | B
Sheet 2 | =Sheet2!A10
Sheet 3 | =Sheet3!A10
Sheet 4 | =Sheet4!A10

Where the formula would give me the value of A10 in the respective sheet.

What I would like to do is, within column B, I want to replace the sheet reference with the cell that contains the name of the sheet. So it would then be a formula similar to the below setup(Although this does not work because I have tried it)

A | B
Sheet 2 | =A1!A10
Sheet 3 | =A2!A10
Sheet 4 | =A3!A10

The hope is that excel would substitute in Sheet 2 for A1 and there by give me the sheet reference that I need. This way I can continuosly add sheets to the workbook and as long as I have the correct Sheet names in column A, all I need to do is drag the formula down column B and I will pull all of the necessary information without having to retype the formula each time.

Relative Cell Reference For Summing

Dec 17, 2008

This is one of about 25 sheets in one excel file, and I will be receiving about 5 different files a week, so a macro is necessary to save time. I tried to create a macro just by recording, and it was not able to adjust to the variances in the number of lines between the sheets.

I need it to do the following, and more or less in this order:
-Delete Column A
-Create text and format A1:C1
-Sort rows 2 through the last row based on column C values (from largest to smallest, although its not shown in the picture above)
-Create a sum at the bottom
-Apply grid lines to all the data

I don't have a problem with the first two, but I cannot figure out how to adjust for the number of rows for sorting, offset 1 cell down to create the sum formula below the data, or how to properly write the macro for the sum formula itself. When I recorded the macro, it used cell references like Range("C5").Select and others which do not adapt to the varying number of rows.

I tried using the offset command in this thread without much luck.

This is some of the macro I have:

Selection.Delete Shift:=xlToLeft
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Customer ID"
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Customer Name"........

Run Macro Function To Create A Relative Reference

Oct 1, 2008

I'm a definite newbie when it comes to macros but can figure out formulas ok.

So I wrote a formula to break out a sort string and it got pretty complicated so Iím trying to create a macro so I don't have to write out the formula all the time. However the sort tag can be in different columns when I need this formula so I tried the "run macro" function to create a relative reference.

So it changed my formula from this:



Now my problem is in the first formula I need "$EM2" not "EM2".

I tried the obvious to me fix of R$C[-1] which did not work... And when trying to re-run the macro it puts RC143 which will not work because the sort string is not always in column EM.

Use Range Of Selected Cells As Relative Reference

Mar 8, 2013

I have a data that is split into multiple cells and needs to concatenated. Unfortunately, the number of columns wherein lies the data varies throughout the workbook. As such, I wanted to select a range of cells, define this range as the reference point for the macro, run the macro, then move on (selecting a different number of columns on the next try).

For example, I have this:



Not Very Far

[Code] .....

I want to select cells A1:B1, run a macro concatenated the two columns, then select cells C1:E and run the same macro to get this:

Selection.Insert Shift:=xlToRight, CopyOrigin:=xlFormatFromLeftOrAbove
ActiveCell.Offset(5, 0).Range("A1").Select

Relative Cell Reference In Hyperlink Formula

Sep 30, 2013

I have a list of University courses listed in Sheet1. Column A contains a unique course code. If there is a problem with a course, a second worksheet (called Anomalies) contains the same unique course code with description of the problem(s).

What I'm trying to do is: in Sheet 1, create a hyperlink to the relative cell in Sheet 2 that shows the course code and description. I've gotten close, but am not sure how I can do this without having to update two formulas. In short, I can't find a way to combine the two formulas.

What I've done is the following: in Sheet 1, column B, created a HYPERLINK formula, thus: =HYPERLINK("#"&CELL("address",INDIRECT(C54)),A54)

Column C contains a formula to lookup the relative position in the Anomalies worksheet, which can be referenced back to the HYPERLINK formula, thus:

Sheet1 is fairly static, but Sheet2 (Anomalies) is being updated all the time. I could just hide column C and then column B will update based on that, but I'd prefer a cleaner solution.

I've tried joining the two formulas, by replacing the INDIRECT part with the second formula, as per the following: HYPERLINK("#"&CELL("address","Anomalies!A"&MATCH(A54,Anomalies!A:A,0)),A54)
but I get an error.

Selecting Relative Reference Range For Fill Down?

Dec 11, 2013

I'm trying to use relative references and am have having trouble with selecting a range for the fill down command.

I'd like to copy a formula down in the last column from row 1 to the last row with data. Column D is static so I can always use it to find the last row. The last column will vary; sometimes it might be G another time it might be X. I'm able to get the formula entered into the proper cell but I can't figure out how to select the range for a fill down.

If I was not using relative references and cell X1 always had the formula then Id code it like this:

'*** Find last row with data
LastRow = Range("D65536").End(xlUp).Row
'*** Calculate length of cell in previous column


It's the last range statement that stops me. I haven't come up with a variation that allows me to select a range from the cell on the first row of the last column and select the last row with data for the same column.

Syntax Error In VBA Relative Reference Formula

Jan 7, 2014

I was able to get VBA to post this relative reference, which sticks the formula

=DATE(YEAR($D2),MONTH($D2)+6, DAY($D2)+1) into a cell in Col J.

All fine and dandy, works as it should with this formula.

.Cells(Row, "J").FormulaR1C1 = "=DATE(YEAR(RC4),MONTH(RC4)+6, DAY(RC4)+1)"

However, when I try this with a different formula =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(C2,H2)),"REPEAT","SAFE"), I'm getting a compile error: Expected end of statement with this code:

.Cells(Row, "I").FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(RC3,RC8)),"REPEAT","SAFE")"

The error message highlights the word REPEAT. I suppose it's something with all the quotes throwing off where compiler thinks the end of the formula should be.

Reference Cells Relative To Activecell In A Range

Here is my code so far:

Worksheets("Generic SPC").Activate
Worksheets("Generic SPC").Range("c2").Select

'Do for all cells in the row

ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select
If Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(Range( _
ActiveCell.Offset(-2, 0), ActiveCell.Offset(-2, 2))) = 0 Then
ActiveCell.Value = 0
ElseIf Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(Range _
("ActiveCell.Offset(-2, 1), ActiveCell.Offset(-2, 3)")) = 0 Then
ActiveCell.Value = ActiveCell.Offset(-2, 0).Value
Else: ActiveCell.Value = 0
End If

Loop Until IsEmpty(ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1)) = True

Range doesn't like activecell.offset. Does anyone know how to do this?

Copy Relative Formula & Use Row Reference From Variable

I have the following code which Clears the content of a cell. The next thing I want to have happen is to have another cell equal a formula but make that formula relative to its place. The formula is the following =IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(F56,Routes_All,2,0)),0,VLOOKUP(F56,Routes_All,2,0))

I am not sure how to paste it where the row changes depending on where it is pasted. Here is the code that does not work...

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Worksheets("2008 Log").Select
Dim cRow
cRow = ActiveCell.Row '

Cells(cRow, Range("Column_Type_Of_Ride").Column).ClearContents

Cells(cRow, Range("column_duration").Column).value = "=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(F56,Routes_All,2,0)),0,VLOOKUP(F56,Routes_All,2,0))"
End Sub

As you can see, no matter where I paste it it will always refer to row "F". How can I have it refer to row "cRow"?

Excel 2007 :: Converting Formula From Absolute To Relative Reference?

Aug 13, 2013

I am migrating a bookkeepping spreadsheet from Quattro v12 (c2001) to Excel 2007 and have hit a stone wall over relative 3-D references.

In this workbook each sheet holds data for one month, and this includes some lagging-12-month calculations -- that is, summing a range on a single cell for the preceding 12 sheets (including this one).

Unexpectedly, this formula:

gives absolute references, even though I put in no dollar signs after the sheet names. This means it gives the wrong answer when copied to the next sheet to start a new month.

I can find no reference at all to converting the above formula from absolute to relative reference.
