In the attached example, I need to create a formula for cell I2 (Balance Remaining) that is driven off the most recent calculation (in this case, F68) but still allows for additional rows to be added to the ongoing list of orders. I believe I'm supposed to use an index formula but not sure how to write/apply it? I need to be able to add rows past 68 and still have Cell I2 (Balance Remaining) continue to calculate correctly.

My problem is that each worksheet contains about 11,500 formulas with references to other workbooks and cells. However, none of these is locked for cell reference (meaning none has the $ sign for row or column) so copying and pasting obviously screws it up since the reference is changing but I need to have the links active in the pivot table.

It would obviously take me a year to add 440,000 individual $ signs. Is there any way, a trick of sorts, where I can just highlight the entire worksheet and add the $ sign to each and every cell reference automatically?

This may be an easy answer, but I haven't been able to figure it out. I have a cumulative page of formulas that reads "SHEET1!B8+SHEET!B9". I need the next row formula to reference "SHEET1!B47+SHEET1!B48", and then "SHEET1!B86+SHEET1!B87". Each row the formula moves 39 rows on sheet 1. Is there a way to get excel to automatically do this, so I don't have to go line by line?

We have data in columns A:E which comes from the refreshable query. Data in F:I are different formulas based on the data from the query. The number of rows we get will vary from query to query. The headers never change just the data. How can we make it so that when no matter the data length the formulas will always autofill up or down depending on the data length?

I'm preparing an accounting model for my office use. How to solve the copying of formula to all other cells.

The detail is here:

Sheet 1:

1) I've entered a number 1000 in L2

Sheet 2:

1) I've entered a values in columns D,E,F,G

2) Calculations :

at G2 : the formula is =D2*Sheet1!L2

The problem is when I Copy the formula in G2 through G3, G4, G5........... it changes to =D3*Sheet1!L3, =D4*ValidData!L4, =D5*ValidData!L5 and so on... but it should be =D3*Sheet1!L2, =D4*ValidData!L2, =D5*ValidData!L2, so that the L2 value shall be constant for calculations in all cells.

I want to have a summary tab calculate figures of other tabs. For example in "Summary" tab, I want to Sum (a:a) for tab "January" =January!sum(a:a)

Does not work. I have also tried other options as well. Is it possible to use formulas when referencing other tabs.

I have 2 cells which I will select on a work book; (say A1 and A2). A1 is the input cell and the formula and the result generated is in A2.

Suppose I input 3 in A1 and A2 shows 60, what I also want to do is input 60 in A2, which should show me 3 in A1, without destroying the formulas.

In short both cells will have formula and both cells will be input cells for each other.

I would like to drag down the formula from the last cell in Column A in reference to the last row in column B.

E.g My last data in Column A104 (code to select the last cell and this can vary from time to time the report is updated)

Column B has data till B142. I want to drag A104(contains formulas) down to A142.

Here is what I have but Selection Autofill doesn't work.

Range("A2").End(xlToRight).Select

Range("A2").End(xlDown).Select

Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("A3:A" & Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row), Type:=xlFillDefault

In columnD I want to reference the "formula" and have it calculate based on the values in whatever row references the formula.

As it stands I can only get the formula to calculate within the same row.

I'm actually having difficulty with the sumproduct function, I'm trying to count items based on multiple criteria (and yes I have looked under that). I'm using a very helpful formula that I grabbed from this site. =SUMPRODUCT(1*(base!$B$1:$B$19465=locations!B$1),1*(base!$A$1:$A$19465=locations!$A6))

The problem that I have is that this doesn't work if I replace $B$1:$B$19465 with $B:$B. now as the number of rows on the base sheet may change, this means I need to change the formula each time I change the data on the base sheet which is somewhat ridiculous. I've been playing around with indirect trying to reference the last cell in a range, but I don't seem to be getting anywhere with that.

I want to be able to sort a table alphabetically by one column after adding a new row to the bottom. But there is another table that uses the values of the former table. How can this be done without screwing up the formulas in the second table.

View 6 Replies View RelatedI have a 2 columns (A and B) next to each other that is using a Sum formula and other multiplying formulas. They reference 3 cells in a different column (C) to come up up with the answer for A and B. Therefore A1 and B1 reference C1 C2 and C3 (and possibly if want to use in future column D with D1 D2 D3).

Then in A2 and B2 I want to reference from C4, C5, C6

Then in A3 and A4 I want to reference from C7, C78, C9 etc.... and so on...

Instead of retyping formulas for each row in A and B, I want to copy down, but I getting the wrong answer when I do that.

I am therefore assuming I typing the formula wrong. How do I type it correctly so the cell reference changes automatically when I pull down columns A and B?

Formula for Column A: =SUM($G28:$G30)

Forumla for Column B: =($G28*$H28+$G29*$H29+$G30*$H30)/$B17

Therefore next row should be referenced from G31 to G33 and H31 to H33

But when I copy it only adjusts it for 1 reference down.

I have 2 sheets in a workbook where i would like cell G8 on sheet 1 to equal the value on A11 sheet 2 & G9 to equal A12 and so on down the sheet. The problem is that G8 are 3 merged cell so every time I try to use autofill the reference number jumps by 3. The formula in cell G8 is

View 3 Replies View RelatedI have a list of codes from which I'm trying to extract all unique entries.

For example, col A has 001, 001, 002, 003, 003, 003, 004, ...

I'm trying to create a report template with formulas that reference col A and return a single unique entry for each code so that the new column has only 001, 002, 003, 004.

Essentially, the codes reference customers. A customer can have multiple purchases -- but I'm trying to create a report in which I can utilize SumIf formulas to Sum the purchases for each customer and represent those purchases on a single line per customer code.

The catch is that the purchases change monthly (i.e., next month the purchases may be 001, 002, 002, 002, 004) so my report template needs to have the flexibility to adapt without me rewriting the SumIf formulas and return SumIf results for only customers 001, 002, 004. Whereas in the prior month, the report returned SumIf results for customers 001, 002, 003, 004.

I have a series of formulas in Row 1 across the columns in worksheet A. I would like to copy these formulas to a single column and down rows in worksheet B while retaining the references to worksheet A. I know that I can manually enter the references in worksheet B but that would take a long time to do.

View 1 Replies View RelatedI am using a lot of linked reports that have to be rewritten each month. For example smaller formulas look like this:

=('S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$228*2)+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$262+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$292

What I want to do is extract the file path from the above formula and make it a composite of several cell references.

So what I need is to have a cell where they can change the month and another where we can change the year. So I set up several named cells that look like this:

_MONTH =11 November

_YEAR =2013

_JOBCARD ='S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING

_PATH =_JOBCARD & _YEAR &"" &_MONTH

I tried several versions, I am hoping for something like this:

=('_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B$228*2)+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B$262+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B$292

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?

I have a table that displays data from another worksheet. This is what the cell reference behind the table look like:

View 2 Replies View RelatedI have lets say 12 months of data. I have formulas that reference the latest 6 months. When I insert a new column to input a new month, how can I make the formulas include the new months without manually updating them.

EXAMPLE:

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.

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?

Let's say I've ended up with the number 8 in Cell D4 for example. Is there a formula that can return the letter "G" (The 8th Column) so I can use it in future cell references ? If so, let's say we store that in Cell B5. How do I now refer to a cell in a chosen Row of that same Column by reference to Cell B5 ? For example if I want to refer to Cell G33 can you refer to this Cell in some form like Cell(Contents of Cell B5;33) ??? Don't want to use R1C1 type references if possible.

View 3 Replies View RelatedI have a workbook "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy" and another workbook "Weekly Field Report $$$-Master" The "Weekly Field Report $$$-Master" workbook has all the formulas that pull data from the "Weekly Field Reports-Master Copy" workbook and populates a financial report of that week's field unit production.

When I save the "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy" workbook to a new name "Weekly Field Report Job #1" and then save the "Weekly Field Report $$$-Master Copy" workbook to a new name "Weekly Field Report $$$-Job #1" is there a way to automatically change the formulas in the "Weekly Field Report $$$-Job #1" workbook to now pull data from the "Weekly Field Report Job #1" workbook instead of the "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy" workbook???

Currently I am manually changing the formulas in the new workbook "Weekly Field Report $$$-Job #1" to reference the data in the new workbook "Weekly Field Report Job #1". Otherwise the formulas pull the data from the "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy".

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.

I have the following formula in cell L51 of all sheets calculating the volume depending on the monthly index that is chosen from the drop down menu in a particular sheet. =If(MIndex=0, SUM(D33:L50),If(MIndex=1,SUM(D34:L50),If(MIndex=2,SUM(D35:L50), 0))).

Microsoft Office Excel cannot calculate a formula. Cell references in the formula refer to the formula's result, creating a circular reference. Try one of the following
