Referencing A Named Range Or Sheet Dynamically?

Apr 19, 2013

I have a challenge I'm trying to surmount. I have an excel sheet in which I want to be able to select Zone codes from a drop down, click on a link "search" which takes me to a place in the document that has been named according to the Zone code i pick in the drop-down. I want to achieve this using only formulas as i'm distributing the file to a wide audience who are not versed enough with computers to know how to enable macros.

Get The Range Address Of A Dynamically Named Range That Refers To A Formula In VBA

Aug 10, 2008

I have a named range that expands and contracts based upon the amount of data that is in some column. Call it AllData_UsedRange.

I have another named range that actually refers to a range. Call it AllData.

Column A
Row2 56
Row3 44
Row4 65

AllData is a named range that refers to the range A2:A65536
AllData_UsedRange refers to A2:A4 by way of this formula.

How to I obtain an address of AllData_UsedRange in VBA code?

These do not work...

Referencing Named Range Without Using Worksheet Name

Aug 13, 2014

I want to export data from a set of named ranges in workbook x to another set of ranges in workbook y. The names of the ranges to be exported from and to are spesified in a table "Table_Export". Problem is I do not want to spesify in what sheets these respective ranges are located, seeing that I do not know the actual sheet names. But since the ranges are global it should somehow be possible to reference them in vba without referencing the respective worksheet?

The relevant code can be found below where either of the two 'commented lines within the if statement are what I want to accomplish.

Dim x As Workbook
Dim y As Workbook
Set x = ThisWorkbook
Set y = Workbooks.Open(Range("Export_to").Value)
Dim export_control As ListObject

[Code] ....

Macro Referencing Named Range In Worksheets Private Module

Sep 12, 2006

I'm having trouble calling a defined range within a VLOOKUP function in VBA. If the named range is located on the same sheet within which you are running the macro, everything runs fine and all is well in the world.

However, after I relocated the range to a separate sheet (a 'SourceData' sheet to tidy up the user interface sheet), I was getting the following error message:

Method 'Range' of object '_Worksheet' failed

The name is correctly defined - Range("DaysInYear").Select still picks up the correct selection - it's just the VLOOKUP will no longer function correctly.

Here is part of the macro's
For I = 1 To NumberOfDays
Range("A1").Value = DateAdd("d", -(I - 1), EndDate)
If Application.VLookup(Range("A1"), Range("DaysInYear"), 3, False) = 1 Then
If Application.VLookup(Range("A1"), Range("DaysInYear"), 4, False) = 0 Then
ActualNumber = ActualNumber + 1
End If
End If
Next I

Dynamically Referencing Tab Names?

Nov 4, 2013

I'm pulling data into some graphs from multiple sheets. The data I'm after is in the same place in each of the sheets, and the sheet name is varying only in that they refer to different dates, such as "01-11-13", 02-11-13 etc...

How would I go about dynamically picking up the sheet name. and referring to it?

For example if I have a column with all the different sheet names in it:

Dynamically Referencing Worksheets From A Closed Workbook

Sheet1.A1=5, then Sheet2.B1=1, Sheet2.B2=2, Sheet2.B3=3, Sheet2.B4=4, Sheet2.B5=5.

if Sheet1.A1=3, then Sheet2.B1=1, Sheet2.B2=2, Sheet2.B3=3.

if Sheet1.A1=7, then Sheet2.B1=1, Sheet2.B2=2, Sheet2.B3=3, Sheet2.B4=4, Sheet2.B5=5, Sheet2.B5=6, Sheet2.B5=7

Referencing Sheet Using Cell Notation In Range

Aug 12, 2012

repTot = Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(Worksheets("Revenue").Range(Cells(xx, 65), Cells(xx, 65 + moNum)))

I am trying to debug the above line of code (moNum is just a variable the tells me how many months to extend the range to the right inorder to get year to date sums).

I have gotten to the point that it will run error free if "Revenue" is the Active worksheet when I run the line, but if I am on any other sheet it throws an "Run=time '1004' Application-defined or object-defined error" error. And if I change the range from cell notation to Column-Row, the issue goes away as well.

Dynamically Create Named Ranges Based On Cell

Dec 16, 2007

I am looking for a solution to dynamically create named ranges according to the contents of cells in a particular column. The following code works for 1 word names, but in many cases the title cell contains numerous words separated by spaces. Is there a way I can adapt this code so that it will name the ranges with the spaces removed? For example, where cell C2 contains the narrative 'Sales Ledger Control', I would want the range name 'SalesLedgerControl'.

Range("R2:Z2").Name = Range("C2")

The named ranges are referred to in numerous other worksheets, where selecting a particular narrative from a listbox creates a dependant drop-down in the adjacent cell (eg if Sales Ledger Control is selected, the dependant list contains names of customers). FYI, the data validation in the other worksheets ignores the spaces in the range names, ie: =INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE(G2," ",""))

It would not take me long to name the ranges manually, but a macro is preferable because the narratives in the title cells will often change and the range names will obvioulsy also therefore change.

Using Named Range On Different Sheet?

Nov 17, 2013

I am trying to use a named range on a different sheet in the same workbook to which the named range is on.

I have a named range on sheet2 called "Letters" and comprises of cells D20-D25 .

I am trying to call this range on Sheet1 at A1-A6 , so in A1 to A6 I simply have "=Letters" (No quote marks) , but I simply get "#VALUE!" (No Quote Marks), If I then extend the selected cell down to A25 the "Letters" will appear in A20-A25
whereas if I put the same "=Letters" in Sheet1 cell A20-A25 I will get the correct named range.

How can I get the range to show in Sheet 1 Cell A1-A6.

I want to reproduce a named range at a different location on a different sheet in the same workbook.

Referencing With Named Ranges

Apr 22, 2009

Ok I have been trying to figure this out for way to long. Say I have a list of values in A1:A4. I have named this range MyRange. If I wanted to refer to this range somewhere else in the workbook and enter =MyRange it will only work provided the "=MyRange" is in the same rows as the original data.

For example if I enter MyRange in cells C1 through C4 it would mirror the data in column A. But if I enter MyRange in C5:C8 I would get a #Value error. Does anyone have any ideas to make this more of an absolute reference.

Basically anywhere I enter MyRange into a cell I want to see A1. If i drag that formula down I want to see A2, A3, A4, etc....

Using Sheet Names As A Named Range

Feb 6, 2009

I have a namd sheet for everyday of the year in a workbook, so jan1 jan2 jan3 etc. I have a stats page which brings together certain pertinent data from those pages, so a formula on the stats page might look like this =sum('jan1'!$m$25:$m$900). What I would like to do is to name each day - jan1 jan2 etc as a named range perhaps date1 date2 etc so that the above formula would then look like =sum(date1!$m$25:$m$900).

VBA - Referring To Named Range On Different Sheet?

I just named a range on a sheet and would like to paste that range on a different worksheet within the same workbook. I can't figure out how to refer to the range. I've tried several different variations so far. Example below:

ActiveWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Names.Add Name:="RawSectorData", RefersToR1C1:="=R6C1:R29C11"
'Add new sheet and paste data
ActiveSheet.Name = "Raw_data_Sector_Summary"

Simple Copy Of Named Range To Another Sheet?

Feb 11, 2013

I have a named range on one sheet, and I want to show this as a reference on other sheets. I thought this would be simple, but maybe it's just not the way named ranges are used.

Attached is a sample spreadsheet. First tab shows the table defined; in practice it would be much larger. Second tab shows how I want it to appear. I see that I can do this by copying each cell reference. But what would be nice is to simply say "Put the named range block of cells right here."

Named Range That Refers To Active Sheet

Jun 15, 2007

is there a way to have the same named range cover a range of cells regardless of which sheet you are on? They seem to want to default to the page you are on. I want to make some VBA subroutines that will go over each sheet, and perform the same functions on each sheet. All sheets have the same format, but different data. I guess worst case scenario I can just break down and use multiple workbooks, but this seems a little less desirable. Should I be dividing this into seperate posts?

INDIRECT And Named Ranges Referencing Closed Workbook

Oct 4, 2005

I have tried using PULL from Harlan Grove's posts to workaround this but am coming up with #VALUE errors.

Here's what I have:

Column B contains the acct # being referenced e.g. 5230
Column E="_"&Br where r is the row #
Column F=MATCH($B$3,INDIRECT(Er&"Rows")) where _acct#Rows is a named
range referring to an external workbook e.g. _5230Rows
Columns G-R=INDEX(INDIRECT($Er),$Fr,COLUMN(G$6)) where_acct# is a named
range referencing an external workbook e.g. _5230

I thought that INDEX($Er, $Fr, COLUMN(G$6)) should work in Columns G-R however it returns #REF!

I need a solution to replace INDIRECT so I do not have to have both workbooks open together. The named ranges are static, but reference external workbooks.

Making Named Range The Last Active Value Used Within Another Named Range?

Jul 19, 2013

I'm trying to make my named ranges remember the values of the last active cells used within another named range. The purpose of this is to make my charts dynamically change dependant on two criteria selected. My spreadsheet currently updates itself as and when I change the active cell within a single named range, dynamically changing the chart data by using Lookup based on the active cells value. However I want to get away from having several charts showing, I would like to have a single chart which dynamically changes based on a second selection. So the first selection is for a department (Facility) which changes the chart data relevant to that department, the second selection is to dynamically change the chart shown for the pre selected department.


Using the following code when updating just one criteria with several charts

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)

If Not Application.Intersect(ActiveCell, [MeasureType]) Is Nothing Then
[valMeasurePicked] = ActiveCell.Value [code].....

which works fine but I'm not sure how to add a second selection criteria because my code uses Activecell. I thought that the VBA needed to set the last used value of a range as a variable and therefore allow the second criteria to be selected but am not sure how to put it into practice.

Combine Two Named Ranges Into 3rd Named Range

Dynamically Generated Range

Aug 14, 2007

I am have some code that takes values from a range (sourceAll) defined on my worksheet as:

Set sourceAll = Workbooks(pathnm).Worksheets(m).Range("A1", "S34")

I'd now like to be able for the range to be generated dynamicaly, but my problem is that the far right column (S) does not always have a value for every entry. Is there a way of using a column that does have a value for every entry, say column B, but then extending the range accross to S? If possible I'd like to avaoid having to move one of the columns with values for every entry. Auto Merged Post;I was looking at some of the suggested threads and found some code that I worked into my own

Set countRow = Workbooks(pathnm).Worksheets(m).Range("B1250").End(xlUp)
Set sourceAll = Workbooks(pathnm).Worksheets(m).Range("A1", countRow)
sourceAll = sourceAll.Resize(sourceAll.Rows.Count, sourceAll.Columns.Count + 17)

now this seems to work mostly, but it has deleted everything that was in column B.

Dynamic Named Range For The Product Name On The Product Details Sheet

Dec 24, 2008

I'm working on a order spreadsheet system, and I have one sheet called Product Details, where the product name, list price and product code are found, these link to the Sales order page, and I need them so that they can be added to.

So far, I have created a dynamic named range for the Product name on the Product details sheet, and linked the the range via a list validation on the Sales order sheet.

The drop down list displays the products and can be added to by typing new product names on the other sheet.

What I need now is that when a product on the sales order page is selected, it draws the the list price and product code data automatically from the sheet, I tried using a normal vlookup, but I couldn't get it to work. I also need the list price and product code columns to be 'dynamic' so new values can be added further along.

Dynamically Altering Sheets From A Master Sheet

Apr 17, 2007

I have a workbook with four worksheets. Sheet1 is the master. On sheet one there is information in a 10x10 table. The first column of the table contains a status of "No, Maybe, Yes." A record will start with a status of No and move to Maybe and then yes. What I want to do is be able to dynamically fill sheet2-sheet4 with information from the master. If the status is "Yes" move that row to sheet2. If the status is "no" move that row to sheet 3. Etc. Further complication that is depending on status, I want specific columns from the master, not necessarily all of them.
