Pick From Range At Random

Dec 30, 2007

We get several sets of season tickets to various events to be distributed amongst several managers based on the mgr's headcount. So mgr1 may get 20 dates while mgr2 gets 5. All this info is calculated on Sheet1, but the only info that is important for this exercise is the mgr's names and how many dates they get. Available Dates will always be the same as Total Headcount.

Short of writing names on sheets of paper and drawing names from a hat, I would like to automate this process w/ a push of a button.

Sheet1 - this is where the managers are listed and their Headcount is calculated.

B C
10| Mgr1 Mgr2
12| 20 5

Sheet2 - this is where my ticket information is listed and will change based on different events.

A. B. C. D.
1| Date Row Seat Mgr
2| 1/1/08 H. 1-4. Mgr1 (20 times)
3| 1/1/08. I. 1-4. Mgr2 (5 times)

Ideally I would like to place a button on Sheet1 or 2 that would execute a code that looks at the range of Mgr's names and based on their hdct, inserts their name THAT many times in column D of Sheet2 like the above example.

This information should not change once it's assigned or unless the button is pushed again. The number of Mgr's names in the row on Sheet1 will change, but is never be more than 15, so the code must skip over cells that are blank if referencing, for ex. B11:P11.

How To Pick Random Name Based On Percentage Odds

Aug 21, 2013

I would like to randomly pick a name based on percentage. In the example below Deb takes up 50% of the wheel, if you were to spin the wheel she would have the highest chance of landing on the dial. How you could make excel randomly pick a name based these odds. The list will have over 50 names and each name will be earning points throughout the year. The more points you have the higher percentage of the pie you get and the higher your odds off getting picked in the lottery.

Excel 2010 :: How To Pick Last Entry In Range

Mar 19, 2013

I have to report Actual Headcount every month. Since I cannot add the Headcount numbers in the FY Column. What is the best possible forumula I can use to pick the last month's reported numbers into the FY Column.

For example.

I have 13 columns (A - M). Jan - Dec and the 13th column is the FY number.

This month, I am reporting March numbers in Column C

Column D through N (Apr through Dec) are emplty

I need Column N (FY number) to read Column C and enter the value from that cell.

similarly when I report April numbers in Column D next month, I want Column N to read April numbers and ignore the prior months.

I tried using the min/max function but since h/c fluctuate every month I could not use that. I could use an "if" statement and go back every column but that seems to be inefficient way to solving for this. Any thoughts?

BTW, I am using Excel 2010

Defined Names Referring To Nonexistent Range Won't Pick Up Once Existing

Feb 17, 2010

I have created 500+ defined names that refer to worksheets that do not exist (yet). When I add the previously nonexistent worksheets, the defined names that refer to them are not "live" and do not work in functions where that name is used. If you go into the defined names and click on the ones that refer to the now existent worksheet, they start to work, but I was hoping there was a way around this step (e.g. a simple macro that says "update all defined names").

I created all the names so that the person who will eventually be using this will only have to add an appropriately named worksheet and put the data in...then everything will automatically work. I do not think adding names is difficult, but the person who will be using this does, so I want to avoid that person mucking around in my names.

Macro To Pick Up A Range Of Date To Filter On In A Pivot Table

Jun 25, 2008

When using a Pivot Table I regularly filter on known data specific to me i.e. WBS codes.

Column A contains the WBS Codes which can be as many a 1000, however, I only need to filter out the 10 or so I require, and currently I uncheck all the records and manually scroll through the list to check the ones I require.

In order to speed things up I recorded a macro which works fine, however, If I need to check any new codes I would have to record the macro again, as I tried to edit the Macro and all it does is to un check all the other codes I don't need.

Is it possible to create a Macro that picks up a range of data that is then used to filter on. (i.e. only the records I require)

Random Function On Select Range?

I would like to use the random function on a range of select numbers. I tried randbetween() but it won't work for me since my range of numbers are not in sequence (e.g. 1,2,4,6,7,8,9,10,21). Using randbetween() might result in numbers not within my range..

Return Random Cell From Range

I want to create a button so when you press it, it will pick a random cell and display the info. Similar to the same sort of thing as a 'tip of the day' button you see on so many websites. I have a formula that kind of works from this site, but only when you make changes on a sheet or each time you load it up. I have tried to assign it to a button/picture but with no luck!

How To Generate Random Numbers In Range 1:20 With Unique Results

Mar 22, 2014

In an earlier life I was tasked with finding a "random" method of selecting two numbers from a "1 to 20" range so that the generated numbers can be applied to an set of people who will be partnered in a golf game draw.

It is only one draw per year so I don't care if the players have previously played together in past years.

easily be modified by a "passable knowledge level" person to be able to select a mystery "9" out of 18 holes that count for scores that particular round.

(btw: this is an issue only for the 20 guys who go away once a year to play golf, the world will not collapse if I have to draw numbers out of a hat, just looking for a slightly more elegant solution and I already have a few scoring macros so my first guess (but not only possibility) is VBA)

Generate Random Numbers In Random Cells

Sep 18, 2009

I am working on a Random Cycle Count Generator that provides random SKU#s based on 3 separate columns of SKU listings. The user clicks a button to generate the SKU#s to cycle count for that day. What I would like to see is a date stamp in the columns next(B,D,F) to the referenced SKU listing(A,C,E) based on which SKU#s are generated. This will let me see the last date that the SKU was generated. I would also like it to automatically save after generating.

VLookup Random Numbers - Sort Range In Descending Order And Return Relevant Value From Column

Aug 27, 2012

I have a column (B) of randomly generated numbers 1-14, and am using this formula range to sort in descending order and return the relevant value from column (c).

=VLOOKUP(LARGE(B3:B20,1),B3:C20,2,) to =VLOOKUP(LARGE(B3:B20,14),B3:C20,2,)

Works great, except when a number is duplicated, (E.G. 14,13,13,12,11,10,10,9,8 etc). It then returns the first value from(C) repeated, and not the value from the second and subsequent duplicated reference numbers.

Pick From List

Jul 17, 2007

I am managing a group of sales reps and when they sell a product they receive commissions I am trying to develop something in excel that in cell B5 there will be a drop down that they can choose one of three products (call them A,B,C) then in C5 another drop down will be there w/ two options (new, refurb), then the result will be in D5 depending on the selections. The parameters would be:

Product A new = $10
B new = $20
C new = $30
A refurb = $5
b refurb = $15
C refurb = $25

So if the rep dropped down in cell B5 Product B then dropped down in cell C5 Refurb, the result would appear in D5 and would equal $15.

At the moment I have a problem as per example attached, that I need to select values from row and populate respective column based on the following.

1. A top row contains non-negative values

2. Rows below it contain blanks, negative values and positive value.

Trying To Pick Result From A Table

Apr 7, 2014

In short in the attached which is just 5 results (the full workbook has a couple of data tables and if/or's etc., I've stripped all of the workings out for ease) from one of the sims in the workbook, it shows how far each of the 8 teams listed will get.

Basically in the top table (results which I have highlighted green), I am just trying to return the values in column J (highlighted yellow) which I have just inputted in the attached. Basically I then intend to use them as a results cell for a data table (for each team). As you can see from looking at the 5 sets of results in the case of St.Louis Blues it would return, STANLEY, DIVISIONAL, SEMI, WIN, WIN.

I wasn't sure quite how to do this. I thought I could possibly do this with an index and a match (but wasn't quite sure how to express the function).

Formula To Pick Last Value In A Column

Mar 23, 2009

Is there a formula or function that allows me to always select the lowest (not min) actual lowest in a column? For example, I have a formula in A1 and I need it part of it to always reference the bottom of a certain range (i.e. A5.A200).

So one day the lowest would be A7 but a week later it could be A8. I don't want to have to keep changing the formula in A1 to find the lowest value. I will be adding data on a regular basis.

Color-pick Eye Dropper

Feb 2, 2010

I am trying to create a front-page, control-panel style user form that among other things would enable the user to recolor certain aspects of the entire workbook based upon an eye-dropper tool that would pick any color from anywhere on screen (inside or outside of excel).
Ideally, I would like it to be a simple button, click on color, and then have a square next to the selection panel that would display this color. So an add-in would be the most viable solution, however, any form of coding that works is good enough for me.

I am currently at the stage of being able to enter a hex value into the form manually, display the color box using that hex-color in the form next to the selection panel, and upon completion of the form, edit which colors I need within the entire workbook.

And I have an external application that will select the hex value of any pixel's color and paste it in the clipboard, so if could figure a way to run the small application upon the button-click, take the value from the clipboard, and then close the application, that would work.
