Re-Order Columns Based On Column Order Of Another Worksheet

Mar 1, 2008

I need a way to re-order an excel worksheets columns based on another worksheet.

Data is extracted from a database into excel however users can configure the columns in the initial system. to how they like This causes problems when the data is copied into an excel spreadsheet I have created as the data copied will not be in the same column order as is required.

How can i reorder the columns without physically having to cut and paste the columns to match?

I have attached a sample spreadsheet.

You will see on the spreadsheet that 'fixed columns' is the order that i require the data however 'variable columns' is not in the same order.

Move Data In 1 Column To 4 Different Columns Keeping Same Order

Sep 22, 2008

I have a table with one column of data. The data in this column repeats with 4 relevant pieces of information that I want to put in 4 different columns (fields) in a different spread sheet (or the same would work better and I would just delete the first column when done) keeping the same order the data is now in.
The data currently repeats in a regular pattern (i.e. 123412341234 with no other data in between). I would like to do this with a macro. Could someone help write a macro that will do this

Dynamic Range Based On Column Order

Jul 31, 2014

I want to refer to columns by column order (i.e. A=1, B=2, etc.)

I want to sum a range for dynamic columns and fixed widths (i.e. B2:B5 or F2:F5, etc).

i have C_N as variant and i am trying to write the formula but desperately getting syntax error.


Range("M5") = WorksheetFunction.Sum(Range(C_N& "2" : C_N&"5")))
i tried before to make another easier formula like
=Range("N5:N" & LastRow)

and it worked.

Macro To Set The Order In Which Worksheets Should Be Printed (order Is Changing Daily)

Nov 29, 2008

I looked at threads realted to printing but wasn ot able to find something similar to what I need. So here is my problem:

I have a file with more than 100 worksheets (each sheet contains the invoice for one store). I would like to create a macro that would enable me to determine the order in which worksheets would be printed. How to do it?

Idea #1: the printing order would be based on the value in cell L1 that would contain the route number for each store. Stores belonging to the same delivery route will have the same value in L1. So, the macro should first print all sheets with 1 in cell L1, then print all sheets with 2 in cell L1 and so on...

Idea #2: Creating a separate data sheet with the list of all stores and their corresponding route number. Let's say info is contained in range A1:B150, where Column A contains the name of the stores and column B contains the route numbers. The macro then should look at that list to determine the printing order of the subsequent worksheets (the name of the store in column A would be the same as the name of the worksheet corresponding to that store).

Idea #3: sorting my 150 worksheets manually. It does not solve my problem fully, though, because stores do not always belong to the same route. So the manual sorting should be carried out daily and would not save time at all.

Create Order Form That Inserts Rows Based On Value In Column

Apr 11, 2014

I'm trying to make an order form that is based off of a price list. Basically there will be 200 items or so someone can just enter the quantity they want into a column. I would then like another sheet on the workbook to auto-populate all of the fields available. The thing I'm having trouble with is I don't want the finished form to be as long as the price list with blank rows in-between. I've been reading up to make a macro work for this, but have had no success.

Set Worksheet Order Within A Workbook?

Mar 6, 2014

I have a macro that will create multiple worksheets (up to 19) within the same workbook. There could be any combination and/or count of the worksheets, but I would like to place them in the same order every time. For example 1,2,3,4,5 or 1,2,4,5 depending on the number outputted. However these tabs will not be in alpha or numeric order.

Is there a way to create a final line(s) of vba code to place these tabs in the preferred order?

Pivot Table Columns In Month Order

Mar 17, 2007

I have a couple of Pivot Tables that I create each month summarising my Income and Expenditure. The only problem I have is making the columns appear in the correct order, i.e. where July is month1 through June(the following year) being month 12 to coincide with my financial year. Oddly enough last month (January) was fine, following December.

This month January and February appear in columns 1 & 2.

Populate Worksheet In Selected Order With Command Buttons

Jul 7, 2014

I'm trying to get a sheet filled in the order of the command buttons selected. It works like:

User clicks command button "A" in Sheet 1.

Macro runs that selects correct info in Sheet 2.

Info gets pasted in Sheet 3.

Repeat and Sheet 3 columns fill to the right with each command button clicked.

My issue is that I'm not sure what command to add in the macro to make it paste in the next available empty column. Right now all I can get it to do is paste over the info already there.

Columns Order Changed Which Messed Up Cell References?

Jun 14, 2014

I am working on a spreadsheet with multiple tabs. The basic idea is that I will pull some raw data and paste it into my first tab, and then I can refresh all of the other tabs to reflect the newly imported data. I had a problem recently because when I attempted to pull the raw data because the number and order of columns had changed which messed up my cell references.

My other worksheets would contain cell references that said =table1!a1, and I would drag that formula down to have a list of all employee names for example. I would then filter data based on some of the other information in other columns. I was hoping that I could paste the newly exported data into that table and reapply the filters to view the new list of employees. How can I do this even if the order or amount of columns change? This spreadsheet will be used many times by different people so I need to make it scaleable in case the format of the exported data continues to change. I tried to change the raw data into a table and change the cell references to the column name, but it did not work when the order of the columns changed.

Reversing Column Order

Feb 16, 2007

I have a column of data I would like to have reversed on the fly (use functions and not vba). I have a function that works for the first cell but I can't seem to get it to work for the rest of the column when I choose edit/Fill Down.


GI_Norm_list = column O
GI_Norm_RevList = Column V

I copy =OFFSET(GI_Norm_list,MAX(ROW(GI_Norm_RevList))-ROW(),0) to cell V1 and it works fine. I choose edit/fill down and I get #REF for every other cell. I seem to be doing this wrong somehow.

Create Large Table From Smaller Tables When Columns Not In Same Order

Jul 17, 2014

I have a lot of data to try and summarize but they are in multiple smaller tables. I wish to only extract 2 variables, 'number' and 'total' from all of my smaller tables (lots of them) so the problem looks like this, i have these tables for example where the 'total' title is in a different column depending on which of the smaller tables you are looking at:

cat 1
cat 2
cat 3


I am trying to get:



Because the number column is fixed and all of the smaller tables will all have a number in the same column maybe i can insert a column next to the number column and say "find the value where the column title is 'total' - however the location of the column title would change so not sure if this would work? I was also thinking of sorting the columns but that will not work either because of the smaller multiple tables?

Sorting- Planetary Symbols (astrology) In 3 Columns (A,B,C ) In Date Order

Oct 18, 2007

I have a page of planetary symbols (astrology) in 3 columns (A,B,C ) in date order, that I'd like to copy across on the same line (date) ,to a designated column on the same sheet, in order of the ColD symbol it won't show here properly as there's no astro font, just tried it.

date Mercury 180 Venus Mercury180Venus
" Venus 60 Mars Venus 60 Mars
" Jupiter 30 Venus Jupiter 30 Venus

here, we have Venus copied to same line in ColE
Mars " " " ColF
how to sort the columns, Cols B,C & D themselves could be resorted instead into the order of the ColD symbol-- so I'd have colA, date-- the B,C,D sorted by D, into about 8 Cols to the right
