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.

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).

Allowing User To Pick CSV File To Source Pivot Table

Feb 21, 2012

I am sourcing data for my pivot table from an csv file. The ultimate task I am trying to accomplish is to allow the user upon hitting a button to select the file that would feed the pivot table. The code below is what I got by linking the initial source file to the pivot table. As I can see the source file named "4 Port.csv" is listed in the SQL-like statement. How do I go about allowing the user to pick the file from the "open file" dialog?

Code:
With ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Add(SourceType:=xlExternal)
.Connection = Array(Array( _

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 ĎAí 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)

Sum Up From Random Table?

Since the range selection is going to be changing at time intervals( automatically), they can not be pre -defined( as above in g2,h2)

Suppose we want to know the sum of all the values against 11(now which is described as =g6 in cell J2),

HOW DO WE SET THE RANGE (E6:H11) ?

( AUTOMATICALLY, SUBJECT TO CHANGING THE SELECTION G2,H2 WHICH WILL THEN BE SOMETHING ELSE(EXAMPLE G2=1 TO H2=5)

Creating Random Multiplication Table

Aug 9, 2013

Here's what I'd like to do:

Have 10 columns... one column would be for the "1s", another for the "2s", another for the "3s", etc...

But I don't want to have them in straight order (i.e. 1 x 1 =, 1 x 2 =, 1 x 3 =, etc...) because the pattern is easily memorized, no matter what number he's working on.

I'd like to be able to hit a button (or something) and have each column shuffle (or randomize) the order in which the equations will be displayed.

So, a column might come up 3 x 6 =, 3 x 9 =, 3 x 1 =, 3 x 4 =, etc...

And next time it might come up 3 x 5 =, 3 x 2 =, 3 x 4 =, etc...

This way he won't be able to memorize any patterns and he'll actually need to learn his multiplication tables.

Getting Formula To Find Data In Random Table

Jan 25, 2012

I was trying to figure how to write a formula that would return the contents of a cell in a table.

Here is the situation....

I have a 10 row by 10 column "grid". the top and left side of the grid contains a random number from 0 to 9. The numbers do not repeat.

It would remind you of a block pool.

If I have two numbers, 0 to 9 , is there a way to return the cell that corresponds to the intersection of those numbers in my table?

It would be both a Vlookup and an Hlookup which I can't do.

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.

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.

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.

Rand Pick From 4 Pools

Mar 6, 2009

I have been using the RAND and Vlookup functions for the following without success.

I have 4 numeric Pools or Groups;
1. A1:A18 (1-18)
2. B1:B18 (19-36)
3. C1:C17 (37-53)
4. D1:D17 (54-70)

I also have E1:E20 (20 existing Numbers from 1-70)

I want Excel to select at random a total of 20 numbers
and place them in F1:F20.

I will specify a quantity from each of the 4 groups.
Eg.
In cell A20 I enter 4 to obtain 4 numbers from grp 1,
In cell B20 I enter 6 to obtain 6 numbers from grp 2,
In cell C20 I enter 8 to obtain 8 numbers from grp 3,
In cell D20 I enter 2 to obtain 4 numbers from grp 4,

However there must not be any duplicates between
E1:E20 and F1:F20!

What I want is for the user to be able to pick a directory from the user form rather than having to type it.

Pick The Number Farthest Down In A Column

Mar 17, 2009

The attachment shows a ledger that I am trying to build. My goal is to automatically add the Ledger balance(G) at the end of each day to the Investment cash balance(J) column. Some days there are multiple Ledger transactions, other days there are none. If there were no Ledger transactions on that day I would like to use the last recorded Investment cash balance. (ex. on weekends there will be no transactions)

Note: I want exactly one balance, the ending daily balance, per day on the investment side of the worksheet.

I have struggled with this all afternoon. My goal is to make this as simplistic as possible for two reasons. 1) I am not a master programmer by any means. 2) I want this file to open on any computer the has a MSExcel on it without have to install any addins.

For these reasons I am thinking it would be best to stay away from macros, which I am minimally proficient at creating.

Let me know if you have any good tricks to solve my problem. If macros are the ONLY or absolutely the BEST way to do this, then I guess you can twist my arm an we can go down that avenue.
