Populate A Cell Based On Conditions Of Other Cells W/out Putting A Formula In The Cell

Is there a way to make a cell populate certain text based on conditions of other cells without putting the formula in the cell you want to populate. So that someone could type other text into the cell if the conditions were not met?

How can I include col E formula into col D formula, so that i do not need to type anything in col E and such that consolidated formula in Remark1 will populate value in Remark2? Will Offset formula do the justice or need a VB code to do the job,

Putting Formula In A Cell Which References Other Sheets
I am writing a VBA macro in excel. I have several sheets in this one sheet for each day in a given month. Sheets for each day are labled as 3_1, 3_2 for march 1st and march 2nd respectively. I also have 4 sheets for the 4 weeks in a given month. The weekly sheets are labeled week1, week2 etc....

What i am trying to do is this:

In the week1 sheet i am trying to "put" a formula in say cell 9,12 which sums up the same cell in the first 7 days of the month. But i am having issues. Does anyone have a good way to do this via VBA?

Populate List Based On Two Selected Conditions
I have a worksheet which contains all the details of the medical equipment in the county that i'm responsible for.

This worksheet posesses amongst others; two columns titled location and sublocation.

I need a technique which will allow me to select a location from a dropdown list, select a sublocation again from a list and for these two conditions to then populate a list containing data such as asset code and description of all the items in the location and sublocation (possibly a little like an advanced filter, but only for the selected conditions)

This list will then be used to provide an engineers report on equipment holdings at various locations. I'm open to any ideas fellas.

Populate Cell Based On Multiple Criteria
I think the best thing is to take a look at the attached, then read what I'm looking for, as it would make more sense...

That being said: what I am looking to do is change cell L3 based on new criteria in cell M3.

Right now if B3=Stationery World then L3=Stationery.

What I then want to happen is if E3=Toner then M3=67200 which then has L3=Equipment Consumables and NOT stationery.

Populate Cell Based On A Dropdown Selection Of Another
I found many examples on this forum of how one can pull in data from closed workbooks, or copy it and have it stored in the active sheet.

Cell Value Based On Multiple Conditions
I need to create a macro that will calculate a value based on the contents of multiple cells. Looking at the example attached, if columns A and/or B (employee ID and name) are empty, then allowable OT (G) should be 0. If either have data, then if Stage (F) is CAN, G should be 20. If Stage is FAS or FAR, G should be 10.

I'm not very savvy with IF statements, which is how I imagine this can be done, and I don't know if this would be easier to do as a macro or as a formula within G. Since the contents of the of the cells will be changing on a weekly basis, I'd prefer the formula to only be there if there is content on the line, so we don't have nulls showing.

Conditional Formatting - More Than 3 Conditions - Result Based On Another Cell
I have established that to have more than 3 conditions in my version of Excel (2003) i have to use VBA. Unfortunately I have very little knowledge of this process. I have attached an example of the worksheet I am working on. The worksheet in question totals hours worked for payroll. problem:

Required result: Cell to change to 1 of 8 background colours in response to selection of 1 of 8 options in drop down list in the cell directly next it.

i.e. (in reference to attachment - sheet DATA)
IF E6 = Holiday, then D6 = Red
IF E6 = Half Day Holiday, then D6 = Red
IF E6 = Sick, then D6 = Blue
IF E6 = Sick Half Day, then D6 = Blue
IF E6 = Bank Holiday, then D6 = Green
IF E6 = Compassionate Leave, then D6 = Pink
IF E6 = Unpaid Leave then, D6 = Yellow
IF E6 = Unpaid Leave Half Day then, D6 = Yellow

However, the same basic table as shown in sheet DATA appears several times on the worksheet. And in each instance the conditional formatting is the same (in reference to the relative cells).

Change Cell Background Color Based On Multiple Conditions
My Excel skills are basic at best, with no knowledge of VBA other than finding the VB Editor. What I'm trying to do: Attached is the file I'm working with, to give you a better idea. When a name is selected in column B, the cells in the non corresponding columns E to N should have a black background color. For example, when you select Mike in column B, the cells in that row in columns I to N, named Dave and Dean, should become black. If you select the name Dave, columns E to H (Mike) and M to N (Dean) should become black. In addition, the background color of the non-black cells should change depending on the status.

OK : green
FAIL: red
N/A: orange
Exceptions: blue

The attached file shows a few possible results, manually entered.

Lets say I am checking AND(AE2 <= F2 ; AE2>=E2) this tells me if date in cell
AE2 is smaller or equal to Cell F2, but how can I set this fromula to check if all the cells from F2 to F1000 are equal to AE2 so If I write date into Cell AE2 it checks all dates from F2 to F1000 and check if condition is true or false
(and if I write date in cell AE3 it should check all the dates from F2:F1000, if date in AE3 is in this range)

Formula That Will Test Text Conditions In A Single Cell
I need a function that will use a column of text values and test these values
to see if one or more of the values exist in a single cell. If it does I need
the function to return true or false.

Ie. cell A1 contains the text "Jim Smith" the B column contains the test
names (column of test values ) ie. B1 is "bill" B2 is "fred" B3 is "jim".
Because Jim is in the cell A1 I would need the function in C1 to return the
value "true". If A1 contained the text "bob smith" then function in C1 would
return the value "false".

Putting Text In A Referenced Cell
In my excel sheet I have a list of where they go, which are basically excel cells.. i.e. A1 is the top left corner.

What I am trying to figure out how to do is, is there a way that I can get excel to see "A1" and then put it in A1 of another sheet on the bottom. Thus I get the same grid I have on the wall, making a map of my things.

Also, I could just cut and paste, but the problem is I'm working on organizing the stuff on the wall, and if I do it the way I want to, when I move things, they should automatically be moved on the chart.

So basically I need it to look at a cell for the reference, choose text from another cell (which will be concaternated(sp) text), and then place it in the referenced cell in the chart sheet.

Color Cells Based On Multiple Conditions Of Different Cells
Im trying to change color in cell B9 according to different conditions in Cell C9 (than on b10 according to c10 and so long until necessary - probably will be around 2000 lines). Since there are more than 3 conditions and in two cases condition depends on the color of the C Column, I can not use conditional formatting. Ive searched and found similar forums here, but since Im ignorant in VBA code, I couldnt manage to make adjustments. So if you can help me with the code, I would really appreciate it!

Condition and Results required would be:

IF column C = S than on Column B = color cell light blue with white border
IF column C = P than on Column B = color cell Green with white border
IF column C = A than on Column B = color cell Yellow with white border
IF column C = L than on Column B = color cell Red with white border
IF column C = C than on Column B = color cell Dark Blue with white border
IF column C = than on Column B = color cell white
IF column C = V and has white background than on Column B = color cell white
IF column C = V and has a Dark Grey background than on Column B = color cell Dark Grey

I dont know if the last two are feasible.

Populate Cells Based On Data In Another Sheet
I run this macro that populates 7 cells based on data in another sheet. It seems that every sheet that have formulas that point to this sheet are being stuck in in the screen updating somehow?

Basically when I press F9 to calculate or change any cell that makes the sheet calculate it has like a screen burn in of all the sheets that are being calculated. I have been able to use this as a workaround:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetCalculate(ByVal Sh As Object)
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

But I shouldn't have to do this and it slows it down as it runs through this specific code about 11 times for each sheet that is re-calculating. Something is getting stuck in memory or something that seems to be causing this issue. This is the code I am using and I am not selecting any cells or sheets, but it appears that when I walk through the code that an image of the sheet comes up on the screen? The code in red seems to be what is causing the issues, but I do not know why? I can pass the 2 workbooks along to someone so they can see the behavior if they would like? Just let me know.

Sub populateEmployeeData()
Dim srcWorkbook As Workbook
Dim foundEmployee As Range
Dim srcWorkbookName As String
srcWorkbookName = "XIP_Employee_Data_" & Left(ActiveSheet.Range("B9").Value, 31) & "_" & Format(ActiveSheet.Range("B10").Value, "MMMDDYYYY") & ".xlsx"

Populate Cells Based On Chosen Drop Down List Value
I am attempting to populate a row of several cells on a worksheet using a drop-down list, using data from a seperate worksheet in the same workbook. The worksheet containing the data will be hidden (I do not think that matters in this case). Do I place a VLOOKUP function in the first worksheet cells? see attached sample


As a follow-up question, as time goes by, the data in the source worksheet will be appended with new items (additional rows of data). As each new item is added, will I need to edit the formulas, or is there a way for Excel to dynamically add the new data? This might be stretching my wish list a bit but I thought I'd ask.

Refernceing Cells: Formula That Looks At A Cell On A Front Sheet, And Then Returns The Contents Of That Cell As The Result If It Meets The Criteria
I have a formula that looks at a cell on a front sheet, and then returns the contents of that cell as the result if it meets the criteria. So for example this formula would be in Cell A1 on Sheet2 IF(SHEET1!A1,"New",Sheet1!A1,"-")

This formula is always in the same cell (different sheet) as the cell that it is looking at, down 1500 rows. Instead of having the formula named for each cell is there anyway to ask excel to 'look at this cell but on this other sheet'.
e.g IF(Sheet1!"This Cell" etc). That way no matter what cell you put the formula in it is always referencing the correct cell for the formula?

Concatenate Cells Or Ranges Based On Conditions

In another cell, i would like to merge them together like so

"A01-A07" are for Joe Bloggs

And also as follows

"| A01 | | A03 | A04 | A05 | | A07 |" are for John Smith

would like this to be
"A01, A03-A05,A07" are for John Smith.

So differing conditions depending on what happens in the range. I have had a couple of attempts at this using a VBA concatenate command, I can get them to display like "A01,A02,A03..." with a selected separator, but cannot get it how i want it.

Color Cells Within Matrix Based On Conditions Outside
In 'MAIN REPORT' there are thousands of columns of data, of which the important columns are 'Factory No.' and 'Row No' and 'Quantity'.

Each factory has its own worksheet as well.

In each of those factory sheets there is a 15x65 grid for each of the 65 rows that are mentioned in MAIN REPORT.

I have created and IF statement that checks if there is any data in 'Quantity row' and if there is it enters a "1" in the that cell of the virtual Factory grid.

This is the formula:
=IF('MAIN REPORT'!I2="","",1)
However, this simply checks that data while there is only 1 quantity for each row of each house.

Sometimes there will be different quantities (for diff. products), and I need a formula/macro that checks the line no. column and then,

If there are 5 items in row 7 for example then it will place five "1"'s in the first five cells of row seven in the corresponding factory sheet.

Can you give me a bit more instruction on this? Also, I'm trying to use the following code to color cells upon a change in value in V1 or V2, but can't get it to work. Can you kindly tell me what's wrong with it?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address <> "V1" Or "V2" Then Exit Sub
Select Case [V1].Value
Case "A"
Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 40
Case "B"
Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 35
Case "C"
Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 36
Case "D"
Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 34
Case "E"
Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 19
Case "F"
Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 24

Populate Cells In A Matrix From Goal Seek Values Based On
wish to write an VB macro in Excel (2003) that populates a 6 row by 10 column matrix (for a 3 D graph) by inserting values from matrix row column headers in cells in another worksheet and using goal seek to derive a value which will be pasted in the respective cell in the 6X10 matrix

Specific example: Matrix (Row Headers A2 to A7, Column Headers B1 to K1, Cell values are in B2 to K7). Please note row and column headers are numerical values since this is for a 3D graph

Macro to be written

Pick a value (numerical) from row header A3 in Sheet A and paste it in cell B6 in another sheet (Sheet B). Pick anothet value (numerical) from column header D1 in Sheet A and paste it in cell B7 in Sheet B.

Run a goal seek scenario such that cell S10 in sheet B is equal to 50 by changing cell G8 in Sheet B

Copy the value chosen/optimised by Goal Seek from cell G8 in Sheet B and paste it in Cell D3 (which is the relevant cell for the values for intersection of headers A3 and D1) in Sheet A

Macro should populate all cells in the matrix in Sheet A (matrix cells to be populated are B2 to K7) in a similar fashion

The macro should be locked in to the cells which are either being copied from or pasted into so that it still references them even if new columns or rows are inserted.
