## Use INDIRECT To Refer Sheet Name

May 9, 2014

I have multiple sheets as Name1 ; Name2 ; Name3 and each sheet have a value on cell A1 for any number let say between 0 to 100. On another sheet call SheetName, I have A1=Name1 ; A2=Name2 ; A3=Name3.

I have formula as:

[Code] .....

The INDIRECT formula work to refer each cell A1 in each sheet, however if the sheet name include a space then it won't work anymore. How to make it work with the sheet name with space?

## Refer To Previous Sheet

Nov 24, 2009

I've got a workbook that increments in sheets for each new week. I have a cell showing the current week number for that sheet ( lets say cell C1) and any formulas that need to reference data from the previous sheet do in 'indirect' function which basically looks at the current week number ( lets say week 20)in cell C1 and minus's 1 to navigate to the previous week (week 19).

I was wondering if there was a way to reference the previous sheet purely by the order they're in.

So say i have 5 sheets named "1,4,5,8,9" and these represent week numbers so the sheet named '8' in cell C1 would have '8' standanding for the week number but cells that wanted to reference the previous sheet couldn't do the 'indirect' C1-1 as there is no 'week 7'.

The weeks used could vary alot so a formula to reference the directly previous sheet is needed.

ok, thought best if i show you the actual formula

=IF(ISBLANK(C12),"",IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(C12,INDIRECT("'"&(\$AG\$2-1)&"'!\$C:\$AG"),28,FALSE)),G12,SUM(G12,VLOOKUP(C12,INDIRECT("'"&(\$AG\$2-1)&"'!\$C:\$AG"),28,FALSE))))

the '\$A\$G2-1' part is the bit that redirects to the previous sheet based on it's name, what i think i really need is to replace this part with a 'PrevSheet' function but i'm unsure how.

## Random Secret Number And Then Guessing

Dec 3, 2007

The assignment is basically to do a module that first picks a random number between 1-100 and then the user should guess what number it is. If the guessed number is below/higher the real number then a MessageBox should appear and say if its too low or to high.

## Refer To A Sheet's Codename From Another Workbook?

Apr 17, 2009

I want to be able to safeguard against a user changing the name of a worksheet, so I use the sheet's codename in all my macros.

I have the codename of a sheet: shOptions

From a different workbook, "ActiveWorkbook.shOptions" doesn't work. How can I use "shOptions" in the other workbook.

## Table To Refer To Sheet Names

Nov 23, 2006

I have 50 sheets (1 sheet per staff member) that will be linked to a Master Sheet that compiles the data. The staff members are based in 5 teams of 10. The names of the sheets are based on the person's initials plus the words Progress Day,

All formulas in the master sheet are based around linking to 10 sheets so I can view the performance of each team. My problem is that the composition of each team changes quite often and so the links have to be manually updated for each team. Is there any way, for example, of compiling a table of team initials like the one below:

AT
EF
FY
DE
CB
RO
PR
TA
NE
SK
HS

that could easily be edited so that the formulae containing the sheet names relate to the table rather than static sheet names?

Eg., If AT left the above team and was replaced by PG then I would update the list above and the current formula

='C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersShared DesktopProgress Day Daisychain[AT Progress Day.xls]Sheet1'!D32+'[EF Progress Day.xls]Sheet1'!D32

would update to:

='C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersShared DesktopProgress Day Daisychain[PG Progress Day.xls]Sheet1'!D32+'[EF Progress Day.xls]Sheet1'!D32

## Sheet Name Stored In Cell - Refer To In Formula

May 31, 2006

Sheet names in Col B
B2 : Sheet1
B3 : Sheet2
Etc

I tried

=INDIRECT(B3,\$J\$58)

at C3 where \$J\$58 is the cell I would like to reference on 50 different sheets

Formula returns #REF!
Col C ref's \$J\$58
Col D ref's \$L\$58
Col E ref's \$N\$58
Col F ref's \$P\$58

So as I copy the 4 formulas down, the ref to the correct sheet should update but the cell ref's should remain

## Delete Range Names That Refer To Sheet

Dec 19, 2006

I am looking for a way to delete all the range names in a worksheet, not the whole workbook. I have found several procedures that will delete all the names in an activeworkbook. For some reason it takes too long to run. Does anyone know how to handle a single sheet in VBA?

## Sheet Indirection. Refer To Sheets With Changing Names

Feb 25, 2008

I've been referencing sheets in my code directly with things like

Sheet1. Range(NamedRange)

however in recreating a new workbook (to reduce bloat), the sheet-numbering has changed... to avoid having to mess around adjusting things again, I was wondering if it's possible to do some sort of indirection... something similar to

#define SHEET_SC_CONFIG Sheet1
#define SHEET_CUSTOMER Sheet2

'and then use these throughout the code....
SHEET_SC_CONFIG.Range(NamedRange)

(cannot reference by sheet name, as end user may change these)

## VBA To Refer To Outlook

Jun 18, 2009

In Excel, I want VBA to refer to the SENT ITEMS folder in Outlook. I want to loop over all sent items, and if the email address satisfies a condition, then record that fact in Excel. I am good at VBA in Excel, and I have a passing knowledge of VBA in Outlook, but I don't know how to refer to Outlook within my Excel VBA.

## Refer To More Than One Workbook

Nov 9, 2009

I'm using this code to open another workbook:

Dim FileToOpen
FileToOpen = Application.GetOpenFilename _
FileFilter:="BlankSAMSRegister.xlsm (*.xlsm),")
If FileToOpen = False Then
MsgBox "No file specified.", vbExclamation, "Error"
Exit Sub
End If
Once this second workbook is open, how do I refer to each one within the subsequent code?

I really need the parent workbook to be named as wb1 and the child to be names wb2 so I can flick between the two in the next macro... I can get the parent using thisworkbook.name, but how do I get the child?

## Ignore Day And Only Refer To The The Month?

Mar 9, 2009

The summary page summarises the source data into how much revenue each department has made over 12 months.

However the formula in Summary worksheet column B will only total up the amounts if the month in the Source worksheet column B is the 1st of the month. How do I change the formula in Summary worksheet column B to purely go by month and ignore the day?

## Formulas Refer To Other Tabs

Jul 17, 2009

The "summary" tab will be calculating 20 statistics for each of the 30 or more tabs. In an effort to automate this - can I replace writing "January!" with a cell reference? For example;
instead of writing = sum(january!a:a). Could I write = sum("A1"a:a), with the A1 Cell = january!. Obviously I tried this and it does not work but I am not sure if there are other options.

## Using INDIRECT For Column Refer Only

Jul 20, 2009

Let's say I have a formula in cell A1 that is =COLUMN(L5). So cell A1 returns the result 12 (for column L).

I now want to create an index formula in another cell:

=INDEX(C1:C12, ........), but I want the 12 in C12 to be picked up from the result of cell A1

So, I tried various things like =INDEX(C1:C&INDIRECT(A1)....etc but I can't work out the correct way of doing this.

## How To Refer To Object Which Is In Another Subroutine

Is it possible to refer to an object which is in another subroutine?

Or should i have to give its definition in each sub i need it?

## Refer To The Last Row In A Selected Area Using VBA..?

Nov 3, 2008

I'm trying to do is add a signature box (for inventory-taking accountability) directly below the pasted area after I paste it. Now, of course, the copied and pasted area could have 5 rows or it could have 15, and when I copy it from the first sheet and paste it into the second it doesn't preserve the name of the range on the second page, so what I really need to do to add the signature box directly below the last row in the pasted area is specify the location in relation to the last row in the pasted selection, but I don't know how to do that. Using ActiveCell always refers to the top-left-most cell in the selected area. So...

If I have an area selected, how do I refer to the bottom-right-most cell in that selection (in the same way that ActiveCell refers to the top-left-most cell)? Or at least the bottom row? Or, even better, the row below the bottom row?

## New Lines To Refer To Different Sheets

Nov 20, 2009

=COUNTIF(A2&"_RES","Yes")

A2 refers to a linked cell but I have tried without the link there still no joy. Together they would generate for example "DCA_RES" which would refer to a column range in a different sheet on the same workbook.

I want this to work so that I can implement more easily new lines to refer to different sheets. (Drag to copy) instead of having to copy and edit a formula 100 times.

## Indirectly Refer To Function

Oct 26, 2009

I'm trying to call a function that is stored in a cell as a text string. In cell A1, I have the text Sum('Sheet1:Sheet3'!C3). I want to call this function from a different cell. Is this possible using the pre-defined functions, or would I be better creating my own function?

## Refer To Cell Without Offset

Aug 31, 2012

I have a selection that I am going through with a 'for each' and then performing actions if the cells meet a certain criteria. I have been referencing nearby cells with the offset function, but now my sheet is too big and I need to change the code often and the offset function is difficult, is there anyway to refer to cells without the offset function, preferably by column letter

PHP Code:

For Each Cel in SelectionIf Cel = x Thenvalue1 = Cel.Offset(0,39).Valuevalue2 = Cel.Offset(0,5).ValueEnd IfNext Cel

## VBA Add Define Name To Refer To Last Row And Last Columns

Nov 7, 2013

with the below code i want the highlighted in red (RC11) to refer to last column and last row.

## Refer To Cells That Move

Dec 7, 2006

In my current spreadsheet I use Offset to change the values of various cells. The problem is that if I make any changes to the columns it throws the whole offset thing off. So, instead of using offset to paste all the data is there an alternative that would work better?

I was thinking maybe I could name a column as a range and then have the cell in that row equal a value.

What solutions are there?

ActiveCell = TextBox1.Value
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1) = TextBox2.Value
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 2) = ComboBox9.Value
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 3) = ComboBox2.Value
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 4) = ComboBox3.Value
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 5) = ComboBox11.Value

ActiveCell.Offset(0, 12) = ComboBox1.Value
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 13) = TextBox6.Value / 100
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 16) = TextBox4.Value
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 17) = TextBox5.Value
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 18) = CostBasis
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 19) = NumberOfShares
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 59) = DividendFreq

## Refer To Objects In Other Forms

Mar 13, 2007

I'm trying to refer to a togglebutton in a form from a command button in a different form.

Right now I have

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

If ToggleButton1.Value = True Then
Pickers.Hide
EndRun.Show
Else
Pickers.Hide
Runinfo1.Show
End If

End Sub

but I assume I have to preceed the Togglebutton1 with the name of the form that it is in but I am not sure how.

I don't even know if the above code will work as obviously I haven't got that far yet...it may be completely off...
