# Offset Function - Get Text Form Cell

Nov 22, 2013

I have this offset function working:

=OFFSET(calculos.xlsx!_5260;10;5)

The cell name "5260", is also entered as text in cell A1, in the current workbook (not calculos.xlsx). How do I refer excel to get the text from cell A1, instead of having to enter it manually.

## Using OFFSET Function To Return The Value From Another Cell With Row And Column Offset

May 31, 2014

I am having some difficulties using a combination of IF and the OFFSET function to display a range of cell values from another column based on a simple condition. The values I need to display at the destination cells should be offset by 8 columns to the right and "X" rows down from the reference column. The value "X" is to be determined via the IF function to check for the row index number.

For example, if Index value "X" = 8, then display the value of B2 in cell I9. IF X = "9", display B2 in cell I10 etc.

I have attached a sample worksheet that provides some examples.

## Excel 2010 :: Dynamic Range - Cell References Changing In OFFSET Function

Apr 12, 2012

I'm working in Excel 2010. I'm trying to create a dynamic range, using the OFFSET function. I've got it working beautifully but as soon as I save it and close the Name Manager the range stops working. When I go back into Name Manager I find all the cell references have changed (from C1:C600 to C1048572:C595 - or some other strange range).

P.S. What it's doing isn't so important as when the cell references are right it works. But just for full info: It's an OFFSET function, starting at A1. It will look at a list of companies and use a Match function to find out how many rows to offset (based on where the first instance of a particular company. And it uses the COUNTIF to make the range the same number of rows as there are entries for that company.

Here is my broken function:

=OFFSET('Map Point'!A1048572,MATCH("Company Name",'Sheet Name'!C1048572:C595)-COUNTIF('Sheet Name'!C1048572:C595,"Company Name"),0,COUNTIF('Sheet Name'!C1048572:C595,"Company Name"))

## Find Last Cell In Range, And Changing Another Cell Based On Offset Text

May 4, 2009

If i have a range say E12:O12 and want to find the last cell before blank, lets say it finds m12 as the cell with the value before blank. then with m12 it needs to determine weather row 11 in the same column has Text either "S" or "F" if "S" then m12 = t if "F" then m12 offset(1,-1) = t. And just to make things more difficult i need the range E12:O12 to step 2 as well until it gets to E208:O208 .Noting that row 11 never changes and will always have either an "S" Or an "F"

and also t = time()

## Conditional Formatting: OFFSET Function To Define A Range Inside A SUM Function

Apr 13, 2007

In Mr Excel's Pod Cast on April 12th, he showed how to use the OFFSET function to define a range inside a SUM function. Then he had Conditional Formatting that would highlight the range that was being summed. Can anyone tell me what the formula would be inside the Conditional Formatting dialog box to get the OFFSET range to have a certain format?

## Get Value From Textbox At Form And Put It In Specific Sheet With Offset

## VBA - Find Cell Containing Text And Use An Offset Cell Value In Formula

Feb 13, 2014

I'm trying to do a column of individual discount calculations using a discount percentage found in a cell two to the right of a cell containing the text "Total SP:" that is always upwards and to the left of the cell where the formula goes (but could be two rows or could be 20). There are multiple "Total SP:" cells in the sheet - I always want the first one upwards. I have created the following but I get #NAME? where I hope to see the discounted value.

VB:

Dim Discount1 As Double
Discount = Cells.Find(What:="Total SP:", After:=ActiveCell, LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious, MatchCase:=True).Offset(0, 2)
Range("R9:R" & LastRow).Formula = "=IF(J9>0,\$E9*(1-Discount1),0)"

I've just thought, the Cells.Find needs to be redone for each cell where the formula is inserted to ensure it always catches the correct discount and this isn't going to do that - it's going to find it once and always use that single value.

I think this needs a Loop or something and to move the ActiveCell down one after the formula to get it to redo the Cells.Find.

## Check Each Cell In Range For Value & Put Text In Offset Cell

Jun 7, 2008

I'm trying to look at a value in one column (Column A) and if it matches a set of criteria, I'm trying to change the value of another cell 6 columns to the right.(Column G) I've been trying for a couple of days now to get this working, but to no avail. I've tried to modify the code below that I've found on this site but can't quite figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Sub RatingsFix1SP()
Dim FindWhat, rngCell As Range, i As Integer
FindWhat = Array("BB", "B", "CCC", "CC", "C", "CCC+")
For i = 0 To 3
For Each rngCell In Range("A2", Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
If InStr(rngCell, FindWhat(i)) <> 0 Then
rngCell.Offset(0, 6) = 0.15
End If
Next rngCell
Next i
End Sub

To try to clarify a bit: If column A in the attached spreadsheet has a rating code of BB, B, CCC, CC, C, or CCC+, I want the Haircut % rate in column G to be 15%. It seems the code that I'm using changes the % rate to 15% if any "B" or "C" shows up in any part of the string in column A.

## Using Offset Loop To Write Form Data Onto Closed Workbook

Dec 28, 2011

I'm trying to use an offset loop to write form data onto a closed workbook. It works fine when the sheet is blank but as soon as I fil the first row it sticks when running. I'm not getting any error in the code and am at a bit of a loss.

Here's what I'm using:

Do
If IsEmpty(ActiveCel) = False Then
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
End If
Loop Until IsEmpty(ActiveCell) = True
ActiveCell.Value = txtName.Value

## Macro To Find A Cell Containing Text /select Range Offset / Cut And Paste To Lower Rows?

Feb 4, 2014

I am trying to find a macro that can search a sheet for any cell that contains the text "Not on AOI" selects a range that contains that cell, 81 rows below, and 2000 columns to the right, then cuts the selection and pastes it 162 rows below the original cell where the text was found. What's hard is that the number of columns between the "Not on AOI" cells is variable.

I'm very new to excel macros and the parts I think I've put together are:

Cells.Find("Not on AOI", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:= _
xlFormulas, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:= _
xlNext, MatchCase:=True).Activate

## Changing Color And Text Of A Cell Using Form?

Jul 12, 2012

I set up a range of cells to show a form when they are double clicked. This form gives the user the choice to pick a color and text from a list. When the user clicks "OK" the form closes and changes the cell based on the user's input (i.e. Red, "N/A"). I want only the double cliked cell to change color and text.

Problem: My code runs fine, but I cannot find a way to let the form change the text of the cell. Only the color is changing. I have tried calling the cell out in the code, but I get an error. I cannot find a way to change the text in the cell.

Code:
Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
Dim ColorChosen As String
Dim WordChosen As String[code].....

## Preformatted Text In Cell, Using Form Input

## Vlookup Function Together With An Offset Function

Oct 26, 2008

I am trying to use the vlookup function together with an offset function but i am not getting it to work properly.

The situation is as follows:

I have a column E in which i use the vlookup function to find its corresponding value in B which in turn refers to a named range. However, the figure i want the function to return is 2 columns to the right and 2 rows above the value which the vlookup funtion finds in the first column.

I have though of using the offset function, but i cannot figure out how to make this work.

## Using OFFSET Function

Dec 1, 2009

In row E10:Z10 I have a series of values and in row E6:Z10 I have dates associated with each of the values in row 10.

I would like to create a formula to look in E10:Z10 for the maximum value and then return the date associated with that value. For example, if the maximum value is in P10, I would like the formula to return the date in P6.

I have tried without success to use the OFFSET function as follows:

=OFFSET(MAX(E10:Z10),-4,0)

## Using The OFFSET Function In VBA

I would like to use the offset function as follows

Each Month a new column will be Inserted in Column V

I need to sum data starting three columns to the right of column V and then two column to the right of that plus BC15 (this will also change each time a column is inserted in Col V

I have used a sum formula before inserting a new column showing you what i am trying to achieve ...

## Match Or Offset Function

Jul 10, 2008

I'm trying to create a formula that would return the value of the column next to it. Looking at the below example, in a new cell I would want to be able to return the value 7 based on the fact that it is in category b.

I would think an if/offset/match function would do this but I can't seem to figure it out as it may require nesting.

categoryvalue
a1
a2
a3
a4
a5

## Sumif With Offset Function?

Jul 2, 2014

I was wondering if there was a way to use sumif and offset to guide the summing column in the example below. Perhaps I need to add an additional column, then formulate a solution. I want to sum the daily returns for the TSX when the slope is positive (green), and sum the S&P when it is negative. Currently, on signal day, I am summing that day's return, which I don't want to do. I want to sum starting on the next day (blue). The B column switches back and forth from positive to negative, so I will summing different data periods going back 1000 days. I am summing the TSX returns and S&P returns seperately to make it easier. Currently I have in C1=(sumif(b2:b1000,">0",c2:c1000)) Same for D2.

## Offset Function With Validation

Jul 5, 2007

find attached the excel sheet. In sheet1 I have named the range I have inserted a Name(Test) for range \$A\$1:\$A\$2(range contains only texts) and have a list validation on cell \$B\$1 using the name. This works perfectly. In sheet2 I have named the range I have inserted a Name(Test1) for range \$A\$1:\$A\$2(range contains only numerics) and have a list validation on cell \$B\$1 using the name. This doesn't work.

## Excel Chart Using OFFSET Function

Mar 14, 2012

I have an Excel Workbook with data in Sheet1 and a chart in Sheet2.

I use the OFFSET function to define the data range. In Sheet2, I have 3 cells, B2(column), B4(row) and B6(period). I have slider to adjust the values in B2 and B4.

I define the data range at follow.

Xchart =OFFSET(Sheet1!A1,Sheet2!B4,0,Sheet2!B6,1)
Ychart =OFFSET(Sheet1!A1,Sheet2!B4,Sheet2!B2,Sheet2!B6,1)

When I tired to put in this into value series

=Book1.xlsx!Ychart

The error message ...

Reference not valid. Reference must be to an open Worksheet.

## Lookup List Using Offset Function

Apr 17, 2012

I am looking to do lookup list using the offset function. Scenario: I have 5 dealer groups, each with there own dealers. Each dealer has a list of customers. Once I select the customer it will bring up a list of their vehicles. I am stuck on selecting the customers and vehicles once the dealer group and dealer are selected.

## Offset Formula - Logical Function Using OR

Jul 10, 2013

I have following formula that returns #value!

=IF(OR(OFFSET(LIVE_JNL,ROW(5:5),COLUMN(C:D))="",OFFSET(LIVE_JNL,ROW(5:5),
COLUMN(C:D))=0,""),OFFSET(LIVE_JNL,ROW(5:5),COLUMN(C:D)))

Where the value in the cell which is referenced is either blank or zero then blank must be returned, otherwise the value which is being referenced by the offset formula.

## Using A Formula As The Reference In An Offset Function

Sep 2, 2008

Is there any way to use a formula rather than a direct cell reference in the Reference argument of an Offset function?

For example, rather than this:
=OFFSET(H3,0,-7,1,1)
I want to do this:
=OFFSET(max(H:H),0,-7,1,1)

Effectively replacing the starting cell of the offset function with a dynamic formula that returns the maximum value of an array.
