Reference Merged Cell Value


The issue that I am having is with merged cell data. What I am trying to do is check the value of the merged cell against a selection from an array and place the value into a cell.

What apparently occurs is that if the row that I am on is an even number (being as my rows start on an odd number); the reference returns empty. I have tested to confirm that this only affects even numbered rows. My spread sheet has a 2 row merged cell in column 2, and the cell I am referencing from is on the second row of that merged cell. Here is some

Wrapping Text Next To Merged Cell
Rows a1:a10 are merged and the problem is that all cells next to these are now not wrapping. I remember reading that when a call is merged this is what happens to the cells adjacent, but is there any code that can help to wrap these adjacent cells?

Extracting Information Within A Merged/combined Cell
I am doing an export of info from one system and running an excel spreadsheet to manipulate the data. The problem is..That the exported data sometimes will export info into combined cells. Look at attachment

This is what I need...

I need the ability to search all the info on the POC tab and pull it into the info tab, by searching on a system and returning the POC info..

I have tried the vslookup formula and it will return the first row not the second row which is where the info is that I need (shown Highlighted)
=VLOOKUP(A4,POC!A2:b50,2,FALSE)

AutoFit Row Height On A Merged Cell
I'm using Office 2007 professional and I'm trying to format a cell (merged cell) so that when you enter text and it goes beyond the size of the designed cell that it will automatically continue and shift the additional text downward, like a paragraph. Also it shift everything below down with it. Is this possible? I have already tried wrap text field and AutoFit row height. This keeps it within the cell but it is not visible or printable once you tab out. I would like to have it continue like in a paragraph. Like a word doc may do. Itís visible and it shifts everything below downward as it grows, which also allows it to be printable.

Unmerge Merged Cell And Put Value In All Cells
Is there any quick and easy way to unmerge merged cells and put the merged cell value in all the merged cells. For example, if I have A6:A15 merged together and its value is "FirstMerge" then I would like to unmerge all A6:A15 and then put "FirstMerge" in all the cell A6,A7,A8 etc. etc. upt oA15. I have lot of these merged cells in a sheet and I get this every month and makes any data processing very difficult. A macro or VBA code or any other solution will be fine.

Spacing Multiple Variable Paragraphs In A Merged Cell
I am using excel as a base for formatting reports, and collating logical paragraphs, which I want to display in one massive merged cell on another worksheet.

The paragraphs are different for each report, and I do not wish to manually enter them in each time. I also want them to display as seperate paragraphs on the page, but in the same cell.

To throw a spanner in the works, the paragraphs are all of indeterminate length, otherwise, I could use different cells. If I combine them in the massive merged cell by using =cell1&cell2&cell3 then they will just appear merged as one whole huge paragraph. I want them to appear as separate paragraphs in the same big cell.

Copying Data From Merged Cell Into All Resulting Cells After Splitting
I have a spreadsheet that has been given to me by someone else, and unfortunately it has merged cells in it that are causing some trouble. I need to have a way to unmerge the merged cells, but for the data in the merged cell to then be copied into each cell that it splits into.

I've attached two spreadsheets - unfortunately I can't really attach the real one since it has research data in it, so I've reduced the size of the file and replaced some of the text. The first file shows how the file starts off, and the file named "result" shows how I would like it to be.

My real file contains some 10,000+ lines of data, and the merged cells are of varying sizes, with no consistency to the size, so I'd like a way to automate this instead of copy and pasting into every empty cell after I unmerge them.

Cell Reference :: Formula To Reference New Cells

12 months of data exist in cells B3:M3 going from B3(oldest) to M3(newest). Formulas reference latest 6 months of data in cells H3:M3. When a new month hits, I insert a column after column M.I would like the formulas to now reference cells I3:N3 which is now the newest 6 months.

Multiply Every Nth Cell By Another Column Whith Merged Cells, THEN Find Column Total
Please see the attached sheet. I have columns B through a lot (B through O in my oversimplified example). In every 7th row in each of these columns there is either a 1 or a blank/zero. I need to multiply that 7th number by the Quantity in column A, to achieve a total (ie the sum of each result of 7th cell*quantity) for each column in the bottom row, labeled "Totals".

In the actual version of my sheet, there are far too many rows to select everything manually. I've been fiddling with combinations of COUNTIF/COUNTA and OFFSET, but I haven't come up with a way to check for the 1 in every 7th row, THEN multiply that 1 by the quantity in column A, THEN add up the results for each column. As you can see, there are 1's elsewhere in the columns that are irrelevant to this particular calculation, so something like LOOKUP would also have to look in every 7th cell and couldn't just look at the column as a whole.

If you can't provide an immediate solution, but can at least point me to a resource that would allow me to devise a way to isolate every 7th row (THAT part is the sticking point), I'll surely post the solution to my own thread with updated keywords if I need it.

Cell Reference- Able To Reference Two Cells To The Left Even As More Cells Are Added
I have 5 columns set up: A,B,C,D,E
D is the sum of A and B
E is the sum of A,B,and C

As I add in a new column to the right of C (call it C2), I need D (which has shifted over one) to sum A,B, and C.

I also need E (which has also shifted over one) to sum A,B,C, and C2.

Essentially I need a function in a cell that will be able to reference two cells to the left even as more cells are added.

Look At Data From One Cell Reference Another Cell Then Display The Results From The Cell Next To It
I have 2 problems relating to LOOKUP.
Not sure if Excel can perform these calculations as they could get to complex.

Problem 1
Can it be possible to have excel look at data from one cell reference another cell then display the results from the cell next to it in another cell, sort of example:

Tab 1 (Never changes)
AB
Bob1
Jon2
Fred3

Tab 2 (Dynamic, changes each week)
AB
Jon
Fred
Bob

So it would work as follows.
Tab2 column B will take Tab2 column Aís data check Tab1 column A and display Tab1 column Bís result.

Problem 2

Weekly league rank table that shows position movements week by week
Example.

Week1
1Jon
2Bob
3Fred

Week2
1FredUp 2
2BobNot Moved
3JonDown 2

Can Excel calculate/show the actual movements of league positions?

Cell To Reference Just The Month From Another Date-formatted Cell
I'm trying to link two different budgets into a third spreadsheet. The final step I'm attempting to accomplish is have an if-and statement reference just the month from a date-formatted cell. One of my departments tracks their budget on a daily basis, i.e.
11/2/2009, 11/3/2009, etc. rather than just 11/2009. I want the if-and statement to return the budget from all days in a given month so i can apply the formula to the whole year, broken down monthly too. I saw a question similar to this one but didn't see any responses so I'm not sure if it can be done.

I know that you can get cell address using CELL worksheet function. However, for that you need to know the reference to the cell, which is what I am interested in.

Convert Cell Reference Text To Cell Formula
I am wanting to convert a cell reference text
"=$A$1"
to an actual cell reference
=$A$1

Manually I can go through each cell and click F2 + Enter and Excel automatically changes it.

I have tried recording a macro whereby I click through each cell with F2 + Enter but the VBA writes the actual formula "=$A$1" rather than the process. This does not work as the cell reference is variable.

I'm NOT wanting an external cell to convert it for me
i.e. INDIRECT(CELL)
because I am wanting to copy the answer to another independent spreadsheet

I'm NOT wanting to paste values
i.e. return the answer from cell $A$1
because I want the cell reference to remain within the cell.

Alternative To Merged Cells
I have a workbook in Excel 2007 where I am creating a summation worksheet through the use of arrays which sumif and countif the other worksheets. Things went fine until about halfway through when I started getting merged cell errors. In between the calculations, I had some merged cell rows for section titles. I was not entering the array into them, but researched the error and unprotected the cells. Problem solved. Now, with 10 row to go, I started getting the error again. I unmerged the sectional title rows. I verified that the cells are not protected. However, when I ctrl+shift+enter to input the array, my formula is moving from the cell that I am inputting to, to the cell in the row directly beneath it.

Combining Rows With Merged Cells
I am generating a calendar view of project information in excel with the column headings as dates. Every project should be a merged group of cells spanning the rows for the proper dates.

Right now I generate a new row with new merged cells for every project (100 projects = 100 rows, even if the project only spans a single day!)

I need to be able to consolidate the project data so that if two projects' dates don't overlap they are put in a single row.

For instance:

Project 1 runs 8/2/2006 - 8/3/2006
Project 2 runs 8/5/2006 - 8/9/2006
Project 3 runs 8/6/2006 - 8/7/2006

Right now I get 3 rows, each with one piece of data shown as a group of merges cells.

I want to see Projects 1 + 2 or 1 + 3 on the same row (since they don't overlap).

Simply cutting and pasting up doesn't work because the vba automatically overwrites data.

I just don't know excel vba very well (long time access man).

Autofit Merged Cells From Pdfs
I've just created a spreadsheet that we will be using as a project review form. In this spreadsheet I have multiple rows of merged cells, column D to N, for comments. I need these comment areas, merged rows, to autofit whatever is cut and pasted or typed into them.

The first problem is cutting and pasting from a pdf. All of the documents we received for the projects we bid are in pdf format. We often cut and paste from those documents into an older version of our review sheet that was built in Word. Trying to cut and paste the same information into Excel ends up in failure. Is there a way that this can be done without jumping through hoops?

The second problem Iím running into is when I cut and paste into a comment area I get the typical Excel error message that the information being pasted does not fit the area it is being pasted into. It there a workaround for this?

My third problem is autofitting the pasted information into the merged cells. Iíve seen some VBA and tried a couple but they donít work automatically when the comments area is filled. How can I do this? I donít know VBA. I'm using MS Office 2003

Copying Values Of Merged Cells
I have a pair of workbooks in which one calculates a number of values and I want to store the values only in the other.

I would expect to be able to highlight the range of the calculated cells in the source workbook, Copy and then Paste Special | Values in the other.

Both the source and the target contain some merged cells. When I try to do the paste, it complains that "this operation requires the merged cells to be identically sized".

They are identically sized.

I have even done Paste Special | Column Widths to guarantee they are identically sized. It doesn't complain about the merged cells then; in fact, it doesn't complain about the merged cells with any of the other paste operations, only with Values.

I have been able to repeat the behaviour with a very simple example. See the two attached sheets. Try pasting Values only of the range $B$2:$D$4 from either one to the other.

When I first created the samples they worked. What seemed to triggered it is I changed one of the merged column widths by one pixel, tried expecting it to fail (and it did), changed that column width back again and it hasn't worked since. As I said, I even tried pasting the Column Width to the target, which it appeared to do successfully, but it hasn't helped.

Now, the attached examples are only to show the principle of the problem. They are very simple and there would be a myriad alternative work-arounds for them. In my original case though there are many formulae over a much larger range and I want other people to be able to paste values without having to follow complicated instructions, so I am not looking for work-arounds unless someone has a mind-numbingly simple one that my numb mind has overlooked.

The only other way of solving the problem that I can think of would be to write a macro that copies cell values individually, but I'd rather not do that because I know these people: they will get narky about having to enable macros. It will be "against organisation policy" or something.

Is there any way of resetting the target workbook so that it will receive the values from the source?
