Populate A Cell Based On Conditions Of Other Cells W/out Putting A Formula In The Cell
Oct 10, 2009
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?
I have a spreadsheet with data populated down column B. This size will vary from day to day so is there a macro I can run that will populate Column C with a formula based on their being data in the adjacent cell.
i am trying to Put a specific value i,e "NO Deliveries" in blank Cells in the same row based on value in 1st cell of the Row which has a fixed value . note:the columns and rows are dynamic for example: I want to put the value "no Deliveries" in cell C because its blank.
What formula do I use to populate certain cells (E5:E10 and J5:10) based on match with condition (E3) with cells from and in the ranges C2:C73 and D2:D73 without creating milelong IF formulas? I am almost at the goal... past 10pm here in Thailand and still at the office
I am currently trying to create a spreadsheet whereby if I enter certain text in a cell in Column A on worksheet 1 that correlates with text in a cell in Column A on Worksheet 2, then the description in Column B in Worksheet 2 is entered into Column B on worksheet 1.
For example, if worksheet 2 has the following:
Column A Column B XXXX PRODUCT 1 YYYY PRODUCT 2
and I enter XXXX in column A on worksheet 1, I want Column B on worksheet 1 to automatically enter PRODUCT 1.
In the xls for each step I have 2 raws-planned and actual. Step planned duration is populated manually over the weeks.Before that row we have another reflecting the actual step status per week
I would like to find a way how cell reflecting the actual status of a step can be automatically populated (coulored) based on the colour/value of activities that are planned for that week and for that step.Activities are listed below the step and again have planned and actual row.
The rule should be : if for a week we have several activities all of them should be finished in order to have step stataus auto populated as green. If a single activity planned for that week is not done-then weekly step status should be red.
The activities for each step are grouped below the step. It seems that one of the difficult part in that request would be how formula will understand where starts and finishes the activities that belong to one step. To get that happen I placed a column showing step and another column where we activity.
I have a table in excel with some data to create labels, but these labels must be repeated according to the number of volumes. Example: I have a delivery for X and such delivery has 5 volumes, need to create 5 labels just changing the volume number: 1/5, 2/5, 3/5, 4/5 5/5.
I would enter a value in "D1" after running the code, in column "A" shall be filled as follows.
I have an issue log containing (separate) columns with dates, numbers and text.
One column (A) has the status (open/in progress/pending/closed/re-opened) One column (B) has raise dates One column (C) has close dates One column (D) has the type of track (this is text, 3 types)
I want to count the amount of cells that have a close date before date x, given they are open (in Column A), and for a specific track (column D).
After creating a new sheet with a date range in one column encompassing all dates that occur in my column B & C, I tried to come up with a formula to count how many cells, and consequently how many issues, were open (or closed) on a particular date per track and as a whole.
So for instance; count cells in column C if Column C is before date 101112 and Column A is open and column D is "Build".
After trying COUNTIF and SUMPRODUCT the conclusion is I can't get it right.
In the sample worksheet, there are columns "Min", "Max" and "Average". The next 2 columns "Remark1" and "Remark2" I have formulas.
In column D "Remark1", I use this: =IF(IF(C2="",0,C2)>B2,"Ave>Max",IF(IF(C2="",0,C2)<A2,"Ave<Min",""))
In column E "Remark2", I use this: =IF(B2=0,IF(B2<A2,"Min>Max",""),IF(B2<A2,"Min>Max",""))
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,
I want to highlight the cell of Column 'A' of excel only when it does not contain the text like "Verify", "Validate" or "Evaluate" in its content if, the value in corresponding cell of Column 'B' holds the value 'Y'. Secondly, the column 'A' can't contains the words like 'Verify', 'Validate' and 'Evaluate' if the corresponding cell in Column 'B' holds value 'N'. So just need to highlight those discrepancies if its there.
Column A Column B Expected Action
Press F3 N Its Fine
Verify this.. Y Its Fine
this.... Y Need to Highlight Cell of Column A as Value in Column B is Y but the column A does not contain any value like "Verify", Validate" or "Evaluate"
Verify This. N Need to Highlight Cell of Column B as the Value of Column A contains words like "verify", "validate", "evaluate" but corresponding cell value in column B does not hold value "Y".
I'm trying to work out how to have cells R11 - Rxx generate the correct date, based on the rest of the calculations.
Please note that the attached is a crude cut down version of the larger spreadsheet, for the purpose of highlighting my problem.
SO, if E7 is changed, subsequently the values in K11:Rxx will be respectively updated.
D12 and G12 are entered manually. (although I'll probably make these drop downs or date choosers at some point...)
Depending on the value in E7 and time in D12, the required break period is listed in K11: Kxx.
The time that these periods of rest are required to occur before is then calculated and listed in O11:Oxx.
I need R11:Rxx to calculated the appropriate date from these calculations, relative to the date in G12.
For example, the rest required in K11, is required on the same day, as such it need to populate with the value in G12.
However the rest required in K13:Kxx, is required by a time (O13:Oxx) on the following day - G12+1
In some case, this time variance could run over 2 or more days.
I figure it's got something to do with the value in D12 also including the date of 0/1/1900.
I'm happy to add hidden cells for formulas/results to work around it, as the end product will print as an A4 document, where many cells will be locked. Would prefer not go with any VBA unless it's my only option as I haven't done any VBA stuff as yet.
NB (the value in P5 is static only in this example)
I tried to put the following formula into a cell using vba, but I received alot of errors. here is the formula I am trying to put into a certain cell and I will use a variable to replace the row number in the formula
I am trying to determine how to great a formula for cells E5, E6 of the attached (in pink) that says if the value of the cell above (E4) is equal to or Greater than the value of cell E10, the cell will perform the formula that I already have in E5, E6.
But what I'm trying to do is create a 5 year investment plan whereby the worksheet automatically inputs those values for me if the balance is above our minimum reserve. That way I can play with the default assumptions and see how it changes throughout the worksheet.
I need to populated a specific range of cells based on a value of any kind in a header cell. Attached is a sample of the end results. Please remember each header cells needs to determine what happens the range of cells below the header cells.
I am writing a VBA macro in excel. I have several sheets in this one workbook........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?
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.
I would like to check whether 2 conditions are satisfy in an if statement. One condition is of data type text and it is stored in a variable calls search1 whereas the other condition is of data type date and i intend to store into a variable calls search2. Could someone tell how to put search 2 into the below code. Basically, i want it to be like
if Cell A is equal to search1 and CellB is equal to search2 then
return value that is associated with the search in cell c
I am creating a document log that tracks all excel files sent and received.
I use RDBmerge to get the filenames and data from the file batches.
My current macro edits the data down to the last stage of data needed to create the log.
My example workbook shows the final stage of the RDBMerge Data "Rough_Data" and then the final data formatted needed for the Log "Final_Data"
Included on the "Rough_Data" worksheet is the Code log used to complete the "Final_Data" worksheet.
I have highlight the cell range on the "Final_Data" Sheet that I need to complete.
filenames can occur multiple times from the RDBmerge, so only one occurance of the filename is place in column B of the "Final_Data" worksheet.
The criteria is this:
A column on the "Final_Data" worksheet as been Named for Each of the possible "Record Types" from Column G of the "Rough_Data" Worksheet. ("A,B,C,D,E,I,O,P,Q,T,V,W,X,Y")
I then must look through the "Rough_Data" worksheet for the first occurrence (if any) of that record type for each filename on the "Final_Data worksheet. If an occurrence is found I then must look at the "Unique ID" & "Program" Columns of the "Rough_Data" Worksheet. The key (on the "Rough_Data" worksheet) is used to determine the code that is written to the corresponding cell.
i.e. "Final_Data"Date FileName Field2 User Direction Method
I would very much like to automate this process, as sometimes I am dealing with over a hundred files with 30 plus rows of data each.
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.
I am trying to build a spreadsheet that tallies hours worked and hours available for the next day. The key to this spreadsheet is the number 70. A worker can accumulate no more then 70 hours in an 8 day period, however after any day with no hours worked the rule resets to 70 hours available again. I have attached a sample spreadsheet so you can see how this should work.
I have a macro that copies data from 6 different worksheets into one summary worksheet - based on certain criteria - I need a way to note on each row of the summary sheet which worksheet it was copied from. Each worksheet is specific to a salesperson, so ideally I would like that salespersons last name to populate in column B on the summary page for each row of theirs that is copied over....here is my current macro I use to copy the data: (this code is repeated for each sales persons sheet - "Blankenship", "Dew", etc...) I have attached a scaled down version of my file.
