# Refernceing Cells: Formula That Looks At A Cell On A Front Sheet, And Then Returns The Contents Of That Cell As The Result If It Meets The Criteria

Apr 5, 2009

I have a formula that looks at a cell on a front sheet, and then returns the contents of that cell as the result if it meets the criteria. So for example this formula would be in Cell A1 on Sheet2 IF(SHEET1!A1,"New",Sheet1!A1,"-")

This formula is always in the same cell (different sheet) as the cell that it is looking at, down 1500 rows. Instead of having the formula named for each cell is there anyway to ask excel to 'look at this cell but on this other sheet'.
e.g IF(Sheet1!"This Cell" etc). That way no matter what cell you put the formula in it is always referencing the correct cell for the formula?

## If Cell String Meets Criteria Then Clear Contents From Array On Same Row

Jul 17, 2013

I'm attempting to clear the contents from a range of cells on rows where a cell string may equal R, X, XX, Y, Z, ZX, #N/A.
The macro runs fine until it gets to a cell that contains #N/A. How to get this to work?

Sub Recalculate()
Dim r As Integer
r = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

For Row = 13 To r

## IF Formula That References A Cell And Returns A Different Result Dependant On The Number In The Cell Being Referenced

Oct 2, 2009

I'm trying to do a formula that references a cell and returns a different result dependant on the number in the cell being referenced.

For example I've said if A1 has a 3 in it then put the word TEST as the result, plus if it has a 4 put the word RESULT.

What I wrote as my formula is as follows-

=IF(A1=3,"TEST")+IF(A1=4,"RESULT")

It works fine when I only use one result but goes wrong when I add two. If I change the words I want to show to numbers it comes up fine but with words it just returns a Value error.

## Delete Formula If Cell Value Meets Criteria?

Feb 18, 2014

I'm using the following on the Worksheet_Activate event to update rows with the date, (Cell AD1 contains the current date):

Code:

Is there a way I can amend it so it only updates those cells which currently have no data?

At the moment it is changing every cell with the date which overwrites existing dates - I want it to update the new stuff only.

## Formula To Return Cell That First Meets Certain Criteria?

Mar 5, 2014

Say I have a column of cells filled with numbers that are ascending. What I would like to do is to pick out the first cell that meets my condition. For instance, these cells contain irrational numbers that increase from 0 to 100. I would like a formula to pick out the first cell that exceeds 10.2, and to return the row number of that cell.

In the case of descending numbers, if I would like to pick out the first cell that goes below 10.2, would the formula be the same?

## Formula Returns A Result But The Cell Displays A Zero

Jan 18, 2006

I have a simple formula subtracting one cell from another using =SUM(XX,-XX). When I click on fx and bring up the function arguments box, the formula result is displayed correctly in that box. However, the cell containing the formula will only display a zero. I have tried reformatting the cells to no avail. I have also tried getting a result using =XX-XX and that does not work either.

## Sum Cells If Another Cell Meets Criteria And Stop When Count Is Met

Jan 14, 2009

We were so close!. But it appears that the assumed correct answer only works if there are no repeating N. The repeating N gets the same count as the last Y and it throws off the sum ....

## Color Cells Where Cell Below Meets Date Criteria

Nov 21, 2007

I�m trying to do a macro that changes the color of all fonts in a row if the cell in the column "R" has the date lower than a specific one, something like this:

Dim Data2 As Date
Data2 = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("today")
Range("R12").Select
Do While ActiveCell <> ""
If ActiveCell < Data2 Then
ActiveCell.EntireRow.Select
Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 3
Else
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Activate
End If
Loop

But it just don�t work. The macro does that in the first row, than it stops. Do you have another code for this, or another way to do?

## Formula That Returns Result & Font Color Of Referenced Cell

Apr 3, 2008

I have 2 tables, 1 beneath the other - table 1 columns represent date ranges and their values. Columns and their data are alternating color coding. Table 2 references, by means of array formula, this data - IS it possible to include the font color as a result?

## Formula To Ignore Blank Cells And Copy Data That Meets Criteria?

Apr 27, 2014

I have a worksheet (Data) that lists when pupils are in for Nursery sessions during the week. If they are in they have a 3 (hours) by their name in the relevant columns.

In the AM worksheet I now need to pull through a "register" so under each daily heading I need to pull through everyone that has a 3 next to their name under Monday AM / Tuesday AM / Wednesday AM etc. from the Data sheet. However, I don't want it to copy any blank cells. I then need to do the same for the PM sheet.

## Coying A Cell Value If It Meets A Criteria

May 12, 2009

i am trying to get my excel formula to say if 2 date ranges in my excel workbook are the same (in seperate worksheets) to put a value from a certain cell into another cell in another worksheet. This is all in the same excel application...

The first step i have taken are:

1) if the 2 date ranges are the same to say 'true' if not 'false'

I am trying to get a forumula to say "if it is true to put a value from a different cell into another cell (both in different worksheets) but the same excel application...? but if its false to move on to the next date

## Count Single Cell If Meets Criteria?

Apr 12, 2012

I am trying to come up with a simple formula to count a single cell if it contains either a 2 or 3.

The cell can contain numbers ranging from 0-8.

Even better would be if I could some how evaluate single cells based on the contents and then count the number of cells where the criteria for contents is true. The problem is the criteria differs from cell to cell (i.e. D2 could = 2 or 3, but E2 needs to be counted only if it contains a 4 or 5).

I know COUNTIFS only evaluate a range but it would be perfect if I could somehow get it to work for single cells. COUNTIFS(D2,2,D2,3,E2,3,E2,4,F2,2)

## Delete Nth Row In All Worksheets If Cell Meets Criteria

May 21, 2008

I want to scan all sheets in a workbook and to delete a first row where a value in cell(1,1) is "table".

Sub DeleteFirstRowInWorksheet()
Dim SheetName As Worksheet
Dim i As Integer

For Each SheetName In Sheets
If Range("A1") = "table" Then
Rows("1:1").Select
Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp
End If
Next SheetName
End Sub

It delete only in an active sheet. What's wrong?

## Count Unique Values If Adjacent Cell Meets Criteria

Apr 30, 2014

In the picture below, I need a formula in column E to count the unique occurrences in column A (excluding blanks) if its corresponding value in column B (B1 value) matches that in column D (B2 value). Currently column E is showing the values I would want the formula to return.

Capture.PNG

At the moment I have a formula as below:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(B:B=\$D2),--(A:A<>""))

this will do a countif in column A if column B matches the value in column D, but would not weed out duplicates for me.

Modifying my formula. I have attached the sample workbook below.

## IF And OR Statement (populate A Cell Based On Which Number Meets The Criteria I Define)

Dec 26, 2008

I am trying to populate a cell based on which number meets the criteria I define. This is based on sales revenue, so if the revenue is less than \$6.5M, I want to use a certain value. If the value is equal to \$6.5M but less than \$8M I want to use another value and finally if the revenue is greater than \$8M i want to use another value. Here's my formula, but it returns \$0.

=IF(B2<6500000,Bonuses!J45)*OR((B2>6500000)*AND(B2<8000000),Bonuses!F45)*OR(B2>=8000000,Bonuses!B45)

## Populate Cells On Different Sheet With Cell Contents Of A Preselected Row

Mar 25, 2014

I have contacts list that I made and want to take it to the next level, but don't know how. See attached.

The goal:
1. Highlight an entire row of someone's contact info (i.e. row 9)
2. Click the "ORDER FORM" text box to activate a macro that populates specific cells on the 'order form' sheet with the customer's contact information from the highlighted row. The information I want copied over is in red on the order form sheet. THAT'S IT!! (Oh, and 'paste value' the current date from H5 so that the date is static on the order sheet

If possible, I would like to have an error check in case no row is selected prior to clicking on the text box that pops up the note "Please highlight a contact row before clicking the 'Order Form' button."

## Calculate End Result Based On Cell Contents Of 3 Columns

Jan 13, 2014

I am trying to create a formula that is able to calculate an end result based on the cell contents of 3 columns, the results are predefined in 3 other columns, here D, E & F

For example:

Column A Column B Column C Column D Column E Column F Column G (Results)
Royal Mail 1 100 2.8 2.3 1.2
Royal Mail 2 100 2.9 2.4 1.3
Royal Mail 3 100 3.0 2.5 1.4
DPD 5 200 4.5 2.8 1.5
DPOST 1 100 1.2 3.2 1.7

I am trying to create a calculation that in Column G will work out, IF Column A=Royal Mail AND Column B=1 AND Column C<=100 THEN Answer is [@[Column F]], IF Column A=Royal Mail AND Column B=2 AND Column C<=100 THEN Answer is [@[Column F]], IF Column A=Royal Mail AND Column B=3 AND Column C<=100 THEN [@[Column F]], IF Column A=DPD AND Column B=5 AND Column C<=200 THEN [@[Column E]], IF Column A=DPOST AND Column B=1 AND Column C<=100 THEN [@[Column D]]

Here are an example of what I have tried, amongst many...

=IF(AND(AND([@[Default Post Postal Service]]="Royal Mail"),AND([@[Default Postal Format]]=1),AND([@Weight]<=100)),1,0) Everything is zero.

## Replacing Contents Of A Cell With Another Based On Search Result?

Feb 24, 2014

My current problem is that I need to search two tabs of data and use the results to modify the contents of one cell in the first tab.

I'll try to be as clear as possible:

tab1 has relevant cells "a" and "b", same row

tab2 has 3 relevant cells "c", "d", and "e", all on the same row

All cells are text values - some digits, but should be treated as a regular String.

The search needs to look at cells "a" and "b", find their match in "c" and "d", then replace the original value of "b" with the value in "e" after a match has been found.

## Sum Result Of Formula On A Range Of Cells That Meet Criteria

May 20, 2013

Is there a way I can sum the result of a formula on a range of cells that meet a criteria? For example, I need to sum the difference of only the cells that are >46. (a1-46)+(b1-46)+(c1-46)...+(g1-46).

In this case the result I'm looking for is on row 2:

Is this possible to calculate in 1 cell only (h1)?

## Sumif Formula The Meets Five Different Criteria

Feb 15, 2010

I want to create a sumif formula that will sum the data if it meets five different criteria. I tied to do an �Or� statement in the formula, but it doesn�t work. For example, I want to sum all the rows that contain: Apples, Bananas, Cherries, Pears, and Plums. How do I write the sumif formula so that it will do this?

## Why Formula Returns Result For One Line And Not The Other?

Jul 27, 2014

I have a two different formulas the return a numbered result(PO Number) in the same column. I then vlookup both of them with the same formula into a pivot table, one returns the result one doesn't. format appears to be the same.

## Sum Formula Returns Incorrect Result

Dec 1, 2009

I have created a table in excel, and it has a very simple sum totals. When i include all cells in the table the total becomes 0. When I exclude a cell in the table, the total shows. I have deleted the row and re inserted another one and copied the cell content from above that was not having a problem,

## Copy Cells Where Another Cell On Same Row Meets Condition

Jul 31, 2008

I have 2 sheets, sheet1 and sheet2. On sheet1 I have a cell (w,3) which displays either "OK" or "Needed". It will be like this for every row on the sheet. On sheet2 I have more information. I have been trying to create a macro or VB function that everytime the workbook is opened will scan the entire column W for any that say "needed" and if/when one is found copy the data in the cell in column A of the same row from sheet1 to column A of the first blank row in sheet2.

So say cell w,6 displays "needed", I then want to have cell a,6 copied from sheet1 to sheet2 into the first column A that is blank. I don't really care if when w,6 changes to "OK" it removes the entry on sheet2 or not, in fact if it does that would be great.

Here is the code that seems to be not so complicated and has copied information from one sheet to another, can't get it to work consistantly. I copied it off a similar post on this site and am not sure what the last value = "1" is doing but I doubt its helping my cause. The cell I need to trigger the action is in the 23 column, the cell I need copied is always in the first and the cell I need it to be copied into on the 2nd sheet is always in the first column as well. I'm pretty good with regular logical statements but I feel that a lack of knowledge about all the available commands is really whats hurting me on this....

## Message Box That Returns Cell Value If A Criteria Met

Jun 12, 2014

I have the following code:

[Code] .....

This section:

[Code] ......

returns the cell that the date has passed in.

I would like it to return a different cell value in the message box, for example if J4 has passed its date, then B4 cell value is put in the message box instead.

## Sum Cells Until Adjacent Cell Meets Date Condition

Apr 27, 2008

Two Sheets:
1) Top Sheet
2) IRA

- Cells A4:A10 of sheet "Top Sheet" contain dates. i want B4:B10 to show the IRA value as of the date in column A:
____A__________|_B______________________
4 | 09/22/2005 | \$ Total as of date in A4
5 | 10/06/2005 | \$Total as of date in A5
6 | 10/20/2005 | \$Total as of date in A6
7 | 11/03/2005 | \$Total as of date in A7
8 | 11/17/2005 | \$Total as of date in A8
9 | 12/01/2005 | \$Total as of date in A9
10| 12/15/2005 | \$Total as of date in A10

- Cells A6:A12 of sheet 'IRA' also contain dates but not in the same sequence (some date ranges had several transactions), B6:B12 of sheet 'IRA' contains the transaction values during the date range:
____A__________|_B______________________
6 | 09/22/2005 | \$100
7 | _ _ _ _ _ _| \$200.................................

## VLOOKUP Formula Dragdown Copies Previous Cell Result Instead Of Unique Result

Jun 10, 2014

When I drag my VLOOKUP formula down a column in Excel 2010, the return value copies the formula result from the original VLOOKUP formula result. For example, if the first VLOOKUP returns a value of 0.5, I expect to see 0.5 or 1 in the cell below that one. However, I get 0.5 which is not the expected result for the cell below.

When, I click the fx on the cells below, the expected return values appear in the formula result. After I click OK, the expected formula results updates and now appears in the cell.

I'm not sure what is causing this issue. My computer was updated recently from an old machine to a new one. I have never experienced this issue before.

## Find The Correct Formula To Sum Text That Meets Two Criteria?

## Formula That Returns A Result Based On All Dates In Column A

Feb 15, 2007

I need a formula to count cells based on the date, so that I can have a blank cell when the answer is 0. I am adding values cumulative and future cells need to be blank because I have a graph that has a trend line and I don't want the trend line to fall off at the end. I also don't want to have to go back to this every month and update it.

## Return All Cells From Sheet1 That Meets The Criteria On Sheet2

Feb 10, 2014

As per attachment, see data : 2604 Stock.xlsx

On sheet 1 column A and B. On sheets 2 I would like to make a seach tab - so if the people type part of the word or code it must return all the data from sheet 1 to sheet 2 that meets that criteria in full or part thereof. I have tried but can't get it to work, might it be that it is on 2(two) sheets ?

I do not understand code so I really do not know what to do where. Basically it should work as a Ctrl-F (find-all) function.

## Formula That Counts Number Of Unique Text Values If Meets Criteria

Nov 6, 2013

I have been using this function to count the number of unique text values in a data set:

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(MATCH(B2:B10,B2:B10,0),MATCH(B2:B10,B2:B10,0))>0,1))

It works great if I want to count number of unique text values overall. However, I want to count the occurrences of unique text values if they meet specific criteria. (Like a countifs function would if it could count unique text).
