# Paste Formula Across Rows But Change Relative Cell Reference To Column From Row

May 26, 2009

I'm working on setting up a chart. The formula I'm using for cell B21 is this: =ROUND(F3,0) & " " & IF(E3<F3 ...

## 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:
=("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.

## 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.

## Named Formulas To Reference Relative Rows?

Jun 17, 2009

Formula: B2+C2

In columnD I want to reference the "formula" and have it calculate based on the values in whatever row references the formula.

As it stands I can only get the formula to calculate within the same row.

## Automatically Change Formula Column Reference

Feb 7, 2008

In Sheet1,

C14 = Sheet2!D2
C15 = Sheet2!D3
C16 = Sheet2!D5

What i want to do is to change "D" to "E". Next time i run it, it will change from "E" to "G".

I want a macro to do it, so that I don't have to change it manually one by one. For some reason, when i try to use .formulaR1C1, the reference change, and I couldn't get it to work.

## Change Formula Cell Reference Based On Another Cell Reference

Jan 8, 2012

How do I change a formula cell reference based on another cell's reference? I'm building a schedule that looks to a task's trigger and adds days based on that relationship. All entries in column "A" will be text and all cells in "B" will be the simple formula "=A2" or "=A3". Due date is calculated by adding the value in "C" to the preceding date in column "D". In the spreadsheet below, the trigger for "Budget set" is "Specs written" with 3 days added to the previous due date.

________A________________B_____________C_________D
2 Design begins__Proj OK______________10____10-Jan
3 Specs written__Design begins (A2)____5____15-Jan (D2+C3)
4 Budget set_____Specs written (A3)____3____18-Jan (D3+C4)

If the trigger for A4, "Budget set", changed from A3 to A2, is there a way that the formula that determines the due date in D4 could read the trigger cell reference in B4 so that the value in the corresponding row in column "C" is added in the date column?

## Column Formula That Won't Change When Move Reference Cells

May 22, 2014

I'm dealing with forecasting invoices. The main column 'BALANCE' has a formula referencing the previous cell and then adding or subtracting invoices (ENTRY). The problem I have is that I'll put values in ENTRY that I expect to come in at some point but as they arrive I need to change the order of the cells. So I'm constantly changing the order and then it changes the formula in BALANCE. I tried absolute cells (and even found a work around way to flow absolute cells by flowing then viewing formulas then using the replace function but that didn't work.

So my formula in BALANCE is:
=\$I\$173+\$E\$174-\$G\$174

but if I move G174 to another cell I'd like to keep the BALANCE formula to stay G174 instead of following the move.

## Easily Change Column Reference In Formula Argument

Jun 17, 2009

i have the table of holiday days with 7 columns(7 countries).Each column consists of 10(or more rows (holiday days).

I have a formula for calculating start day for a deposit which has to be renewed.
formula is =workdays(end date of deposit,-2,A1:A10).
-2 in formula is because all the trades in the market are traded Today+2days.
A1:A10 is column of holiday days.
This formula calculates the start of deposit excluding weekends,holiday days.

BUT I have more then 7 countries and I would like to have a macro so when in cell F10 I type SWEDEN,my formula automatically use the column with holiday days B1:B10 for sweden.
When I type Finland, the formula uses column C1:C10 with holiday days from Finland respectively.

## 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.

Code:
.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:

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.

## Relative Reference Formula Not Changing Until Re-Entered

Dec 28, 2006

When I copy the formula to another cell, It doesn't show the result. But when I double click on it, it works. For example

there r values in A1 as "john" & A2 as "Jack". I write formula =A1 in cell B1. It shows "John". Now I copy this formula to B2, it shows "john" instead of "Jack" . When I double click on B2 & enter, it shows "Jack".

## Copy Relative Formula & Use Row Reference From Variable

Mar 5, 2008

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"?

## Increment Formula Reference Relative To Copy To Range

May 26, 2008

In my data validation I have the following formula as the Source: =INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE(\$F\$2," ","_")). I want to be able to copy the cell and paste it into another cell and have the formula update to reference the new cell. Currently the validation is for cell G2 and references F2. I want to be able to copy G2 and paste it in G3-G6 having the formula update so it refrences F3-F6.

## 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:
=ISUM('201206:201305'!M6)

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.

## Change Column And Cell Reference Name?

Apr 25, 2014

I have a massive excel sheet with 300,000 rows and 100+ columns. When reading back through my formulas, it can get very confusing. Example: "=(AZ9*5 + 1)+BH9/2 +(AP9*0.75)" I then have to figure out what each column letter is representing. Instead of this, could I rename a column so I can reference the variable name? Example:

Instead of =CONCATENATE(A4, " ", B4)

have

=CONCATENATE(FirstName4, " ", LastName4)

## Change Reference Cell From Column To Row

Jul 25, 2008

I am using this formula

=IF(\$A5="Select","",MAX(INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE(\$A5,"/","")&"m1440"&"!d:d")))

It looks for the sheet based on A5
It finds the max number from the sheet in Column D

This is what i would like to do please....

On this found sheet - Column A has dates in this format yyyy.mm.dd

I would like to enter a date in a cell (say for example AA5 on main sheet)

Can the formula above be adapted to:

Look for sheet based on A5
then
Look at date entered in AA5
then
use Vllookup to find row containing date in AA5 (making table range the ENTIRE SHEET found based on A5)
then
Return value from Column D

## Way To Change A Cell Reference Within A Formula

Dec 28, 2008

Is there a way to change a cell reference within a formula. ie: If the formula is =A1 (in reference to cell A1) and I wanted a new cell to have the reference =A10. Can I make a formula which was A1+9, and therefore lookup A10.

## 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 Cell Reference Unstable

i.e. drag activecell to activecell.offset(1,-1)

## 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:

Columns("A:A").Select
Selection.Delete Shift:=xlToLeft
Range("A1").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Customer ID"
Range("B1").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Customer Name"........

## Copy & Paste Specific Column Based On Cell Reference

May 20, 2008

I've searched for a solution on the board and the internet too but to no avail; I am trying to create a macro that will select the entire column based on a cell reference G1 which is infact a Date.

Column G to Column S are pre-defined with a specific Date in row 8. If the Date in one of these columns (G8 to S8) match with the Date in cell G1, say it finds a match with H8, then I want to copy the range F14:F2000 and paste as values in range H14:H2000. The possibility of a match found is limited to a single columns from G to S.

## VBA To Insert Formula And Then Fill Down Number Of Rows In Reference Column

Apr 8, 2014

I am trying to insert formulas to my cells in different columns and then fill down the formulas as many rows as in the reference column. So far I have put my formulas in a macro but I seem to get problems with " and ' symbols. My macro looks like this:

Sheets("Sold Articles Database").Select
Range("U3").Formula = " =VLOOKUP(LEFT(K3,2),'Input Variables'!\$A\$48:\$B\$52,2,FALSE)"
Range("V3").Formula = " =VLOOKUP(K3,'Product datas'!\$A\$2:\$C\$10000,3,FALSE)"
Range("W3").Formula = " =VLOOKUP(K3,'Product datas'!\$A\$2:\$D\$10000,4,FALSE)"

## Copy Selected Cells And Paste As Formula With Original Cell Reference

Nov 20, 2012

Wanted to know if there is a macro that can copy the selection of cells and paste it as a formula with original cell refernce.

For Example :

Copy Selection Cells - Say Cells A1 B1 & C1
and Paste It as formula In Cell D1 as =A1+B1+C1

## Copy Formula To Another Sheet And Simultaneously Change Reference Cell?

Apr 29, 2014

I have an excel workbook that has many spreadsheets (each one sheet has a client name)I have another excel workbook that has these client names on one sheet (on a list) and next to every name I have a number (i.e total turnover of the year).

In the first workbook (where every client has his sheet (tab named after the client) I want to have a cell that equals to the sum of some cells on the other workbook, that refer to the specific client

(it looks like this ='[comissions NF 10-14.xls]comissions 14(auto)'!\$J\$81+'[comissions NF 10-14.xls]comissions 14(auto)'!\$J\$197+'[comissions NF 10-14.xls]comissions 14(auto)'!\$J\$313+'[comissions NF 10-14.xls]comissions 14(auto)'!\$J\$429)

I want this sum to be added to every sheet of this workbook. each sheet refers to a client, so \$J\$81, \$J\$197 etc must be changed for the correct cell that refers to the name of the client. The tab names are alphabetical and so s the list.

Is there any way to do it, without re-entering the formula to each one?

## 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:

## 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

'
Sheets("Reformatted").Select
Columns("C:C").Select
Selection.Find(What:="stop", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt _

## Change Cell Color Relative To Another

Jan 2, 2008

I am in the middle of my ICT A-level coursework and im required to design a spreadsheet with a grade system (A to F). The students have individual target grades and recorded grades from tests and homework will also be dispalyed. How do i change the colour of the cells of tests or homework depending on what target grade the student has. I will have to do this for about a hundred students, so conditional formatting isn't really an option to do each individual cell. I'm not familiar with coding, but can learn. Not sure if a formula can solve this either.

I have used the search function of the forum for this question but have not found anything regararding this.
