Passing Cell References From A Cell's Text To LINEST Function And A Graph

Mar 2, 2009

I'm using Excel 2003 and I'm trying to make my LINEST function and the source cells for a scatter graph use the cell range specified in another cell in the document. I figured out that it was simple to do the following:

I250 contains: 10, shows: 10
I251 contains: ="I"&I250, shows I10

But I can't figure out how to do this in a larger function. I've tried a few things but none of them work. Here is an example where I want it to do a LINEST with y values in cells Ja - Jb and x values in cells Ia - Ib (where a and b are integers specified in cells I250 and J250 respectively):

Set Cell References In GETPIVOTDATA Function

Aug 30, 2007

Is it possible to replace the Pivit table name/reference in a GETPIVOT function with a cell/range reference? I can on other components of the function call, but not that. For example ... the "hardwired" function call might be:

=GETPIVOTDATA(" Sum of 1991",'[EE_financial data.xls]Sheet1'!$A$3,"Company","ERG","Item"," Depreciation & Amortisation")

I can achieve the same result by externalising the 1991 and ERG, so i replace this with other dates or names, thus:

1991=GETPIVOTDATA("Sum of "&C13,'[EE_financial data.xls]Sheet1'!$A$3,"Company",D12,"Item"," Depreciation & Amortisation")

.. and this works fine.

However, if I try and replace the '[EE_financial data.xls]Sheet1'!$A$3 with a reference to a cell containing that string, it returns #REF!

Function Which References Active Or Selected Cell

Oct 22, 2008

I have a spreadsheet which shows a matrix in pounds. But I would like to have a reference cell somewhere near the top which will automatically show the conversion to kilos of any selected cell. Is anyone aware of a function which will do this?

For example, one pound equals 0.45359237 kilos.
Cell A1 contains the reference function to the active of selected cell. If I click on B1 which contains 12, cell A1 would automatically show 5.45. If I click on cell C1 which contains 20, cell A1 would automatically show 9.09.

So Im thinking it would be something like
=SelectedCell/0.45359237 or maybe =ActiveCell/0.45359237

Dynamic COUNTIF Function That References Previous Cell

Dec 11, 2012

I'm trying to create a dynamic COUNTIF function that references a previous cell.

For example, if I have 10 columns:


a 1 b 2 c 3 a 1 b 3

I am trying to write a function that will let me reference A1:J1 and then if the cell contains an A, do a countif among the cell+1 for cells that have a value of "1". In this example, that function would return a count of 2. I think that I need some kind of combination of IF, INDIRECT, and COUNTIF, but I'm not sure how to string them all together--or maybe there's another way altogether.

Find And Replace Function Using Cell References And Wildcards

Mar 29, 2012

Any way to use a find and replace function involving a cell reference. I have a spreadsheet with ton of junky text burying information that I want. Here is a simplified example

Book 345353hg dgdgsdgfd fff Book belongs to Jim
Sneaker fdg4 Sneaker is worn by Jan
Gum dfg s d e te4345Gum tastes great
Cake jklsjflsjfjikCake smells delicious

The pattern is that the A1 text appears in the B2 text. What I want is

Find *A1
Replace with blank
Find *A2
Replace with blank
and etc.

So that in the end, I get this:

belongs to Jim
is worn by Jan
tastes great
smells delicious

I've looked at the functions of find, replace, substitute, left, and right and I can't seem to find the right one to do what I need.

Concatenating Text And Cell References

Jul 29, 2006

I need to concatenate some standard text with some cell references but I can't use quotation marks as I would in the normal excel function as it produces an "expected end of statement" error message.

Is there a way around this?

What I want to say is:

Range(B23).FormulaR1C1 = "CONCATENATE(With , Info!C18), entries, your expected rate is: , H21)"

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"))

LINEST Function Calculation Using Only VBA

May 7, 2005

I can do least squares fitting utilizing LINEST and a worksheet. (See attachment.)

I would like to do the same calculations entirely within VBA.

I can specify the values as arrays within VBA :

Sub linest2VBA()
' linest2VBA Macro
' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+A
Dim dXvalSqd(4), dXval(4), dYval(4), dFirstRegStat As Double
Dim i As Integer
Second Question:

Is there a way to get the remaining regression statistics within VBA by referencing only the three arrays: dXvalSqd, dXval, and dYval?

Automatically Pull Value From Assigned Cell Into Text Box In Graph

Jul 23, 2014

I am creating a series of charts that all include a text box containing "(N=[value])", with different values in each instance, but with each N value listed as a total frequency in each table. I am creating hundreds of these, so if there is a way to automatically pull the correct N value from a cell into the text box, it would make this faster. I have written simple functions in excel tables but have no experience with VBA/macros.

Referring To An Array Column Or Row Of LinEst Function

Autoselect Range/Row Reference For Linest Array Function

Dec 31, 2007

I have set up regression in excel using the linest array function which automaticly updates whenever the data it is references changes. Currently the formula in K3 =

Only the Y range in column K changes and then the formula automaticly recalculates the regression parameters. However sometimes the range of valid data changes with each new update so currently K8 to K50 contains valid values and so the formula works. But if the range of valid data now ends at say K45, and the remaining rows (K46- K450) contains #DIV/0!. In this case the formula does not work and I need to go in manualy into K3 and reselect the range to get it to work (in the baove case to =LINEST(K8:K45,M8:N45,TRUE,TRUE)

Is there anyway I can get the formula to update the range (the number of rows to use) in the calculation automaticly so I don't have to go into the formula in K3 and change the range manually everytime the data changes? Basicly I like to use all rows in column K (from K8 to K50) where there is a values and ignore cells with #DIV/0!

I'm guessing the easiest way to do this would be to set up a dynamic range of some sort that feeds into the linest array function so that the end row reference for columns K and M & N changes depending on where the first #DIV/0! occurs in column K.

Structured References And With Cell References I Get A Column Of Zeros

Nov 25, 2007

It is suppose to be that if the employee is "FT" and has worked >=4 years the return is 15. But if the employee is FT and has worked 2 years but less than 4 years then it is suppose to return 10 (these are days off) Or if the employee is FT and has worked 1 year, but less than 2 then it should return 5 days off. And all the others in the column get no days off.

I have tried to do it with structured references and with cell references I get a column of zeros!

IF Formula That References A Cell And Returns A Different Result Dependant On The Number In The Cell Being Referenced

Oct 2, 2009

I'm trying to do a formula that references a cell and returns a different result dependant on the number in the cell being referenced.

For example I've said if A1 has a 3 in it then put the word TEST as the result, plus if it has a 4 put the word RESULT.

What I wrote as my formula is as follows-


It works fine when I only use one result but goes wrong when I add two. If I change the words I want to show to numbers it comes up fine but with words it just returns a Value error.

Copy Cell Contents Between Tabs Provided Cell References Match (VLOOKUP)

Apr 29, 2014

I have 2 inventory reports: what my store has and what my supplier has. I need to copy Tab1:K# to Tab2:T# provided that Tab1:A#'s contents match Tab2:A#'s contents. The A column represents the SKU of the item, but there is a difference in the amount of SKU's in each (my store sells ~6,000 items, supplier has ~10,000 items), so it's not as simple as sort by column A and copy pasting column K to column T.

For instance:
On Tab 1, A2's value is [1], K2's value is [9.38].
On Tab 2, A70's value is [1], K70's value is blank, but I need it to be [9.38], to match Tab 1's respective SKU.

I almost thought I had it figured out with VLOOKUP, but I cant seem to get it right... It doesn't reference the correct number.

Second tab, store's stock: [URL]

Excel 2007 :: How To Copy A Cell Without Auto-adjustment Of Fix Cell References

Jun 15, 2014

Assume I have a cell M24 with a formula like

=M10 + $H24 - $I24*0.35

As you can see B10 is a fix reference (due to omitted $) which should NOT be auto-adjusted but be kept.

Now I want to copy the formular to lots of cells below cell M24. therefore I mark cell M24 and click copy in context menu.

Then I drag/expand the blinking cell border to lets say the 20 cells below. As I result I expect e.g. in cell M25 a formula like

=M10 + $H25 - $I25*0.35

Unfortunately I got

=M11 + $H25 - $I25*0.35

So the fix reference is adjusted as well.

How can I tell Excel 2007 to NOT auto-adjust fix references in formulas?

Conditionally Format Cell Using Absolute Values And Relative Cell References?

Mar 25, 2013

Below is my code which isn't formatting the cells it's suppossed to. It looks like it isn't doing anything. I think the issue might be with the highlighted section of my code, but when I go to "Manage" my rules for conditional formatting, excel references the appropriate cell under the "Applies to" section. I am using relative cell references for for the majority of the rest of the code and this section follows a section that selects the correct cell for this conditional format.

Selection.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:="=""ABS()>.005"""

Passing Named Range From Cell Into VBA

Jun 6, 2014

I'm trying use a worksheet that contains named ranges as the source in a macro that will dynamically create pivot tables. The named range could be anything so it can't be hardcoded in the vba and has to come from the worksheet.

In my example, the string strI = "policy" which I know because the msgbox displays the string.

Dim strI As String
strI = Chr(34) & rngIn.Cells(1, 4).Value & Chr(34)
MsgBox strI

Application.Goto (strI)

But when I try to use strI in place of a hardcoded named range, it always gives me (Reference is not valid) error using the string variable in the following code but never when it's hardcoded in as "policy".


'This errors out
Application.Goto (strI)
'This works
Application.Goto ("policy")

Passing A Value In A Cell To A Named Range Reference

Apr 8, 2008

I have a formula which is using named ranges-


where Ship_30 name references the following-
='sheet 1'!$C$20:$C$38

The value of 20 is static, the value of 38 is dynamic. Each new time period adds another value (i.e. 39,40,41)

Having to edit each name range reference in the name manager is not acceptable since there is potentially over 30 to edit each month.

I would like to edit a cell which would have contained the value 38 (or C38) with a new value of 39 (or C39) so the range reference would be updated with the new value.

The goal would be to have a couple of rows with the following that could be edited with new values

Function (not VB) To Remove Text From Cell?

Jun 30, 2012

way to use a function to remove text from a cell. I cannot use VB code, due to the spreadsheet being integrated in an operational software application - already tried it and get nothing but errors from the application. Was also trying to use a Find and replace function, but it's not working.

Here's the scenario - I have a cell that returns the weight of a product from the system, but it includes "LB" or "KG" in the cell along with the weight. I do not know how many characters will be returned to the cell, as it depends on the product. It could be a single digit up to 10 digits, including a decimal point. I need to clean up the cell to only a number, because in the next function, I am trying to round up the number that is left in that cell (won't round up with KG or LB in the way).

Passing Value To Cell As String From Auto-Populated Combobox

Apr 10, 2013

I have been searching for hours trying to find a solution to no avail. What I need to do is make sure that when I press a button on a form, the value in a combo-box should be populated as "text format" not as a number. The reason for this is that when my numbers start with a 0, the leading zero gets dropped and I can't run the rest of my code as the items don't match...

I have tried substituting the "Value" to "text" in : Me.cboItem.value and have tried for hours trying to name dim variables as a String and pass this into the cboItem...with no luck...


Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim iRow As Long
Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = Worksheets("Order")
'find first empty row in database
iRow = ws.cells.Find(What:="*", SearchOrder:=xlRows, _


The below populated the combo box cboItem:


Private Sub OptionButton1_Click()

Indexing it would work, as would preserving the zero so help on either one is appreciated. Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;Correction, I lied. I was using this line to set it.
