I've found a few macros that will automate changing cell references from absolute to relative and they work great. However, when I run the macros on formulas that have references to another worksheet or workbook, the macro will not work correctly.
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.
I have a spreadsheet with very long formulas that reference a whole lot of variables in the same column. I tried naming the cells so that writing of the formula is easier to do. However, I need to copy the column across for other entities of varying nature, and these copied cells refer to the same named cell. Can I name a cell and copy it sideways so that it retains some sort of name with allusion to the column that it is in?

I have tried copying a formula with a named range and, as expected, it maintains an absolute reference. Is there a way that he might be able to copy but drop the absolute reference and copy with relative references. Can I place something in front - the equivalent to the $ sign, but rather a relative sign.
I'm working on or any part of it on here, because the work belongs to my employers and would constitute the loss of trade secrets. It would also take me way longer than I have the time to invest to put together a functional duplicate of the relevant part of the sheet just to be able to post it.
With that in mind, what I'm trying to do is refer to part of a range that spans five columns (though it could conceivably span more in the future, so I'd rather not count on that detail) and a constantly changing numbers of rows. The part I want to refer to includes all columns, and all rows except the first and the last in the range.
I have two columns. The first is imported NAMES, ADDRESSES, AND CSZ on three lines, repeating over and over again. Several hundred names, addresses, csz. The SECOND column is a formula which picks up ONLY the text name in the first column. The SECOND column will just be one NAME after another, so the formulas will SKIP two rows in the first column. HOW do I copy down / propagate relative formulas to do this
I have a Formula = SUMIF('Master List'!B3:B190,AE197,'Master List'!AG3:AG190) When I copy this formula the next line is as Follows =SUMIF('Master List'!B4:B191,AE197,'Master List'!AG4:AG191) Is there something I can do to in order to make so that when I copy the formula is would read =SUMIF('Master List'!B3:B190,AE198,'Master List'!AG3:AG190). Elliott Auto Merged Post;Nevermind I used the formula = SUMIF('Master List'!$B$3:$B$190,AE197,'Master List'!$AG$3:$AG$190)
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 click RECORD MACRO 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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
I have a workbook with 50 worksheets, each worksheet has an Alpha name (ie names of people). Rather than write some code to go through each worksheet to create a report, is it possible to write a formula in a "Reports" worksheet that reads something like
where worksheet10! is the number of the worksheet (as seen in the VBA project window) while the name is "Billy".
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.
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:
A B C D E
No Not Very Far
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:
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: =("Anomalies!A"&MATCH(A54,Anomalies!A:A,0))
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.
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 Range("D1").Select 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.
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.
