Reference Merged Cell Value

May 10, 2009

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

Reference Cells Into Merged Cells

Nov 6, 2013

I have a spreadsheet list that has no merged cells. I need to copy that spreadsheet into another spreadsheet where each row is actually 2 merged rows. I thought that I could manually reference the first few rows, then drag them down to copy and hope that excel would be smart enough to pick up the pattern. But it doesn't, and keeps copying over every other row. Is there a way to quickly copy a spreadsheet with individual rows into a spreadsheet with merged (two rows) cells? Seems like it should be doable.

How To Filter Merged Cell

Dec 19, 2013

I am working on an FMEA and have a slight issue.

I have a number of merged cells in Column B.

I have merged 30 rows of column B to one Failure mode let's say 'Gaps'.

In column C there are 30 individual items relating to gaps.

When I want to filter column B to look at Gaps, it only returns the first row of the merged cells. So instead of getting the entire merged cells as a result of my filter, I get 1 row.

I hope this is clear. My question is, is there a method of filtering so that the whole merged cell is returned?

Watermarks Considered As Merged Cell?

Mar 14, 2014

How to add a watermark to the sheet on each tab. Now when the script is called it stops and give the following errors:

Run-time error '1004': cannot change part of a merged cell.

I searched for merged cells in the document and as far as the script is concerned there are none, other than maybe this new watermark.

So, does VBA or scripting think that a watermark is a merged cell?

Any workaround if it does think of it as being merged?

Here is the current script we are using:

Unmerge Merged Cell And Put Value In All Cells

Nov 6, 2008

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.

Merged Cell - Lost Functionality

I feel like I have lost some functionality due to merged cells. For a worksheet change event I have the following:

ElseIf Target.Value = "" Then ... blah blah blah

For a normal cell, every time a cell is deleted (in the appropriate target zone) then it runs the code I have in the subsequent lines

Except it doesn't work for merged cells, unless I manually go into the cell, backspace all of its contents and then press enter

Automatically Resize Row With Merged Cell?

Dec 21, 2011

Is there a way to automate the resizing of a row to accomodate the text that is pulled into a cell as the result of a formula?

I have a merged cell which receives the result of a DGET formula. The result can be as few as 6 lines of text or as many as 24 lines.

I suspect I need to count the number of lines in the result and resize based on that count multiplied by 15 points.

I don't know how to write the VBA but it would be kind of Resize Row.Countlines x 15 pts. and be executed by the event of calculating the formula from its default setting.

Practically speaking, the default setting is sized per the result of the desired code: there is a blank formatted merged cell that can be manually overwritten that is sized by the typical number of bullet points.

Split Un-merged Cell Into Two Cells?

Nov 8, 2013

I have many columns in my current spreadsheet but I have two columns that I want to split in to two project names.

Currently I have one column with: Project A/Project B And the second column with the total cost of Project A AND Project B combined

The thing is that I can easily just create a new line but that would mean all the data in the other Cells remain the same and the only two that will be different are the above two columns. I will be maintaining alot of rows so I was hoping I do not have to create two rows for every new item then to merge both rows in reach column every time I have to put in a new Item.

I am hoping to have for example the below

Name Comments Project Cost
-------------------------------------------------
Item 1 This item relates Project A $150
to upgrade of Project B $120
SAS system
----------------------------------------------------

Currently I have it as

Name Comments Project Cost
-------------------------------------------------
Item 1 This item relates Project A/B $270
to upgrade of
SAS system
---------------------------------------------------

AutoFit Row Height On A Merged Cell

May 27, 2009

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. Its visible and it shifts everything below downward as it grows, which also allows it to be printable.

Change Formula Cell Reference Based On Another Cell Reference

Jan 8, 2012

How do I change a formula cell reference based on another cell's reference? I'm building a schedule that looks to a task's trigger and adds days based on that relationship. All entries in column "A" will be text and all cells in "B" will be the simple formula "=A2" or "=A3". Due date is calculated by adding the value in "C" to the preceding date in column "D". In the spreadsheet below, the trigger for "Budget set" is "Specs written" with 3 days added to the previous due date.

________A________________B_____________C_________D
1 Task___________Trigger_____________Days_____Due Date
2 Design begins__Proj OK______________10____10-Jan
3 Specs written__Design begins (A2)____5____15-Jan (D2+C3)
4 Budget set_____Specs written (A3)____3____18-Jan (D3+C4)

If the trigger for A4, "Budget set", changed from A3 to A2, is there a way that the formula that determines the due date in D4 could read the trigger cell reference in B4 so that the value in the corresponding row in column "C" is added in the date column?

Spacing Multiple Variable Paragraphs In A Merged Cell

Jun 19, 2009

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.

Count Cell Values In A Column And Merged Cells

Apr 10, 2012

example:

A1 to D1 merged; value 6
A3 to B3 merged; value 3
B5 to E5 merged; value 2

=sum(A1,A3, A5) would return 9 - correct
=sum(B1,B3, B5) would return 2 - should be 11?
=sum(C1, C3, C5) would return 0 - should be 8?
=sum(D1,D3, D5) would return 0 - should be 8?
=sum(E1, E3, E5) would return 0 - should be 2?

Copying Data From Merged Cell Into All Resulting Cells After Splitting

Dec 2, 2009

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.

Convert Cell Reference To Worksheet Reference

Jul 20, 2014

I have a workbook with 1000+ worksheets, all of which have 3-letter names. On a master sheet, I would like to make a query of how many non-empty cells there are on a subsidiary worksheet. This works:

Code:
=COUNTA(ABC!A:A)
What I'd like to do from time to time is input in column A a varying set of 3-letter worksheet names, say

AAB
ABC
CDE

And have a formula in column B that converts this to

=COUNTA(AAB!A:A)
=COUNTA(ABC!A:A)
=COUNTA(CDE!A:A)

I've learned that simply substituting the cell references A1, A2, A3 for AAB, ABC and CDE doesn't work. What do I need to do to achieve this?
