Relationship Between Formula References. Dependents & Precedents

May 30, 2008

I'm an experienced Excel user working with very large Excel files that contain many sheets with thousands of formulas referencing various cells on different worksheets. I've been searching for an advanced solution for Excel and I am actually having doubts as to whether it actually exists on the market. (If it doesn't take this idea for free!)

I need a program that could generate a visual map that displays different cells and the links among them. For example, such maps are used in social networking to show connections among people - an example here.

In the end I would have a similar map and it would show me which worksheets are more or less isolated (i.e. don't reference directly any other cells).

Cutting And Pasting Without Changing Precedents Or Dependents

Jan 25, 2014

I am baffled because one worksheet I can cut/paste and none of the reference cells whether they are dependents or precedents change--in other words, all formulas remain exactly the same. I switch over to another tab in my back-end and the formulas change when cutting/pasting cells.

Highlight Cells If Cell Has Dependents Or Precedents

Feb 17, 2009

I am working on a tool to highlight cells that have dependents but no precedents. This would be useful for me as I build a number of models and handle models built by others.

I want to be able to easily see where model inputs are and inputs will always be cells that do not have precedents and do have at least one dependent.

I have played with a number of methods with very little success. Is there an easy way to test whether or not a cell has a precedent or dependent within the workbook?

for cell in range

if cell.does.not.have.precedent and cell.has.dependent then
cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 35
end iff

next cell

I found this in an older post but I cant get it to work at all.

Sub atest()

Dim rngA As Range
Dim sngA As Single

For Each rngA In Selection.Cells
If Len(rngA.Formula) > 0 Then
On Error Resume Next
sngA = rngA.DirectDependents.Count
If sngA = 0 Then
rngA.Style = "NoDeps"
End If
End If
Next
End Sub

Macro Code To Trace Dependents/Precedents

Jun 17, 2008

I would like to trace dependents of all cells <> "" in column A of a sheet "Tickmarks". If there is a cell in column A which has a value, but does not have a dependent I would like that value to be stored. When the trace dependents check is done for all the cells with values in column A, I would like to display a msgbox with all the cell values collected above.

Eventually, I will be trying to locate the cells with no dependents but with values in Column A and replace them with cells with dependents and change the dependent links to the updated cells.

I have attached an example.

Sub Trace_Dependents_Tickmark_Sheet()

Dim RowCounter As Integer
RowCounter = 3

'Select firsct cell with t/m & show dependents
Range("A" & RowCounter).ShowDependents

' Loop until RowCounter = 200
Do
If Range("A" & RowCounter).Value = 0 Then
RowCounter = RowCounter + 1

Data from LC worksheet likned into the Account worksheet at Column K and Column V.

I want to highlight cells in LC worksheet which have no dependents or have duplicate dependents at Column K and Column V into the Account worksheet. Built in trace dependents is time consuming and useless.

List Formula Dependents From Another Sheet

Mar 13, 2008

I'm disecting someone's spreadsheet to automate it.

I'm looking for some code that will make a list or table of cells with dependents (not on the active sheet) and show what the dependent is. I'm assuming the code would list all values or formulas on the active sheet that get used somewhere 'NOT' on the active sheet.

My results would be basically 2 columns. Column 1 would be a list of tab name & cell refrences from the active sheet when the macro was run and column 2 would be the tab name & cell reference of where the data goes within this book.

Charting The Results Of Changing One Cell That Has Many Chained Precedents

Feb 12, 2014

I have a document with a huge number of chained-together precedent cells, each changing vastly when a single input cell's value is changed (my x-value).

I need to look at the bottom line (my y-value) which is the result of a number of calculations based on the aforementioned cells, there is no linear relationship as there are a number of thresholds and roundups.

I have done this in mat-lab, however my company doesn't have that luxury and all the information is created by a standard estimating sheet that cannot change format.

How could I go about doing this? I've had a look through pettier however I can't see anything that doesn't either require a named cell with a huge formula in it or a table (which isn't practical in this instance - I need to chart the bottom line for 100 different values).

Replace Cell References In Formula With The Header Of The Cells Referenced In Said Formula

Dec 22, 2009

Here is the scenario:
A B C D
BananasApplesOrangesTotal113=A1+B1+C1

I need to reference the formula in D1 with the cells headers names.

In a perfect world, it would take
=A1+B1+C1:

and produce:
=Bananas+Apples+Oranges

Trace & Go To Dependents On Another Worksheet

When tracing precedents (or dependents) and the worksheet icon is pointed to, I understand that it is referring to another worksheet. Is there a way to discover which worksheet and/or cell?

Code Find Cells Without Dependents

Jul 18, 2007

I am trying to write some code to run through a workbook and identify dead ends i.e. cells with no dependents. I can isolate the cells I need to check and tried to count dependent cells to see which had none. My code to do this is:

If Cell.Dependents.Count < 1 Then

This creates "runtime error 1004: no cells found" when a cell with no dependents is found. I have tried using ISERROR and ISNUMBER and a few other things to either trap this error or turn it into something useful. It seems that whatever is returned from my expression is not an error code or a null or a number.

Replace Character Used In Formula Where Formula References Cell

Feb 23, 2008

I am using vlookup to get a cell value from another sheet, but if the cell has "&" or "/" I need to substitue "&" and "/" with "and" so that the cell can be added later to a url.

i am using =VLOOKUP(a1,Sheet2!A1:W17968,6) to get the value of a1 in sheet 2 and return the value of column 6

this will return "Audio Cables & Leads" but i need it to say Audio Cables and Leads

I need the formula to also check and replace "/" with "and" as well so cables/wire will be Cables and wire

Data Relationship...?

Nov 26, 2009

I would like to get to a stage when I can type in a part number and it will bring up other part numbers that were ordered with that part number. Ideally the top ten rather than having a huge lists of hundreds of parts.

I.e The top selling part number in the list is 11511607, I can easily make a formula to bring back all of the order numbers this was ordered on but I donít want the order numbers, I want the other part numbers on the order in which this part was ordered. I am trying to get to which parts are commonly ordered together and thus should be stored close together in the warehouse to speed up the picking processes.

Excel 2010 :: Code To Extract Unique List Of Dependents?

Here's my problem... Column A contains employee name & column B contains Team Leader name of the respective employee. Range D1:G1 should contain names of team leaders from column B. After that, depending on the name populated in D1, cells going downwards from cell D2 should contain name of employees of that team leader. Similar thing should be repeated for columns E, F, & G. If an employee shows up under two team leaders then it should be displayed under both lists.

Is there any formula/VBA code which can do this? Been after this for last 3-4 hours and now just lost in a maze of various Index Match combinations and array formulas..

Changing Hard Coded Column References To Variable References

Oct 22, 2009

I have a number of statements within the Sheet Event Code (Excel 2007). Three times lately I have added a column and had to go back into the code and find all of the references that needed changing to reflect the new column.

I have been working on this for a couple of days and even tried EE, but to no success.

I have read that Defined Names / Constants should be used as often as possible, but even trying that, the VBA code errors out or "hangs up". Even within Bill Jalen's book (VBA and Macros 2007), there is nothing that addresses this, especially using Intersect.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rng As Range

On Error GoTo mEnd
Set rng = Sheets("Log").[F14:F10000]
If Not Intersect(rng, Target) Is Nothing Then
If Target = "" Then
With Sheets("Log")

Set Relationship - Aligning Equal Text

Nov 15, 2008

I want to bring in text files that result in a single column and then want to be able to align equal text in the column next to each other. I used to be able to do some moderate programming in FoxPro and used a transaction that was called set relationship to field+field, etc.

If there is no equal text in either of the other columns then I have tried to set it to a column by itself. Of course this comes data comes in all in one column with no spaces. I have searched the help files and the net and just can't find a way to do this. I'm thinking this might be attuned to Access more than Excel but I am not proficient in this. Right now I am doing a cut and paste to make this work but some of the imported text have upwards of 800 lines.

Pull Info From 1 Worksheet Into Another - Not A One-to-one Relationship

Mar 5, 2009

I have one worksheet with 238 rows and another with 163 rows. I want to pull information into the sheet with 238 rows whenever there is a match to a record in the 163 rows. I tried VLookup, but as soon as it gets to a record in the 238 that doesn't exist in the 163 it gives errrors and stops. I've looked at =offset and =offset(match) but I'm not finding anything that deals with the situation of not always being a one-to-one (or even one-to many) relationship. Ultimately I want to pull the Category & Project fields into the records matching on IDNumb in Sheet 1 but Sheet 1 has more records than Sheet2. example......

Formula References Between Worksheets?

Dec 20, 2013

Column O is names and column P autogenerates email addresses with

=CONCATENATE(SUBSTITUTE(O2," ","."),"@company.com; ")

So, John Smith becomes

"john.smith@company.com; "

That's perfect. I want to move it to another worksheet. When I paste it to Worksheet 2, A1 I get

=CONCATENATE(SUBSTITUTE(Sheet1!O2," ","."),"@company.com; ")

So why does that only generate "@company.com; "?

Volatile References In Formula

Mar 4, 2010

I have a worksheet that will be referencing data from a 2nd open workbook.
Although the 2nd workbook will contain common worksheet names (eg stats), the file name will be volatile.

Consider the formula in wb ws1 cell A1 used to copy a value from wb2 (39961(28-May-09).xls) ws1 (stats) cell B1 if workbook 2's name was static.

='[39961(28-May-09).xls]Stats'!$B$1

In my case, the reference file will always be different and must be substituted in the forumla above (red portion). How can I adapt my formulae recognize the available workbook. I have the file name available now in cell C4 of WB1.

Dynamic Formula References

Mar 13, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that imports data from a database and into pivot. Several departments use that spreadsheet, but depending on the department, they may want to see e.g. 3, 4 or 5 different fields than other departments.

My spreadsheet also includes a great number of formulas included in a macro, so whenever I get a request to include field X, Y and Z, I end up spending a lot of time adjustning all my formulas to reference the new fields.

Get Cell References From Formula

Aug 8, 2007

I am trying to code the following in VBA. Excel Cells have formulae like: '=+BZ165-BZ163-BZ162-BZ160-BZ159-BZ157-BZ153'. Now I want to write code in VBA which will be able to give me the individual cells referenced in this formula: BZ165, BZ163 etc. These names can be stored in individual variables or arrays.
I will then use these for further processing. Note in cases where formula refers to data in another sheet like: '=Projects!P49' or data in another excel like '='C:Documents and SettingshoskopDesktop[Annual.xls]Quarterly'!BA$502': I would like to store the path , file name and sheetname in variables/arrays as well.
Any pointers as to how I should approach this problem?

Use Cells For Formula References

Oct 16, 2007

I want to sum A2 to B10. The catch is: I have the letter "A" in cell A1, the number "2" in cell B1, the letter "B" in cell C1, and the number "10" in cell D1. In effect, I want to make a function =SUM("A1B1":"C1D1") such that it gives me =SUM(A2:B10). Hopefully, the answer will work for any function (e.g. SUMIF, COUNT, VLOOKUP, etc).

Converting Absolute References To Relative References In Formulas?

All I need to do is count "Y"s for prepaid attendance and "DI"s for drop-ins. I have the formulas working but they are absolute so inserting a row will break my sheet.

Structured References And With Cell References I Get A Column Of Zeros

Nov 25, 2007

It is suppose to be that if the employee is "FT" and has worked >=4 years the return is 15. But if the employee is FT and has worked 2 years but less than 4 years then it is suppose to return 10 (these are days off) Or if the employee is FT and has worked 1 year, but less than 2 then it should return 5 days off. And all the others in the column get no days off.

I have tried to do it with structured references and with cell references I get a column of zeros!
