Replace Blanks With Formula With Relative References

May 13, 2014

So have large spreadsheet with grid of elevations. Each column/row is 1 foot grid. There are blanks in it where there was no elevation data available. I need to interpolate those elevations using the surrounding known elevations. I can setup the interpolation just fine using a circular reference but what i am having trouble with is getting formula into all the cells. I need to replace blanks with formula that averages all four cells around it.

This will result in circular references that will interpolate from known points nearby. So for example if cell D4 was blank formula needs to be

=(D3+E4+D5+C4)/4. D5 would be =(D4+E5+D6+C5)/4.

I have been playing around trying to make a macro or something to do this but am not having any luck. Basically need to find/replace all blanks with formula above but so the formula references the cells around it properly.

Converting Absolute References To Relative References In Formulas?

Feb 10, 2014

I set up formulas to count text characters in a range of cells. I'm tracking attendance and payments for a small yoga studio.

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.

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

Relative Hyperlink References

Jan 24, 2010

I suspect there's a simple answer to this but I've looked and can't find it: In Excel 2003, when I add a hyperlink to another file and close/reopen my workbook, the link is saved as relative to the current workbook. So if the main workbook is moved or, in my case, when I use VBA to copy and email the sheet with the hyperlinks, the links are broken.

Relative Sheet References

Jun 20, 2006

I'm having some trouble coding a macro that copies data from one sheet in a workbook to the next sheet in the workbook, and the problem seems to stem from my lack of knowledge about how VBA refers to sheets. What I'd like to do is copy data from a range of cells in the next-to-the-last sheet in a workbook to the same range in the last sheet in the workbook.

Each day, I add a blank sheet to the end of all the sheets in my workbook. I insert some data into it, then go to the previous sheet, copy some data, return to today's sheet (the one I just added) and paste the data. I can record a macro that will do this perfectly, but it only works for the two sheets in which I record the macro. I need a way to change the sheet references so it always copies from the next-to-last sheet to the last sheet.

Relative References To Named Range

Jan 17, 2005

I have a spreadsheet with very long formulas that reference a whole lot of variables in the same column. I tried naming the cells so that writing of the formula is easier to do. However, I need to copy the column across for other entities of varying nature, and these copied cells refer to the same named cell. Can I name a cell and copy it sideways so that it retains some sort of name with allusion to the column that it is in?

Andrew van Gruting"

I have tried copying a formula with a named range and, as expected, it maintains an absolute reference. Is there a way that he might be able to copy but drop the absolute reference and copy with relative references. Can I place something in front - the equivalent to the $ sign, but rather a relative sign.

Using Relative References In Range Names

Jun 5, 2009

I have a workbook with a single worksheet. The worksheet includes some named ranges, which are used in a dynamic chart (so that when I add data, the chart updates).

I want to duplicate worksheet#1 so that I can have worksheets 2, 3, 4 etc.

Thus I can paste new data in the new worksheets, and have all my calculations done.

Naturally, the only probelm is the graph. It is using the named ranges from worksheet #1.

Is there a solution, so that I don't have to re-create my graphs on each worksheet? (each worksheet has varying numbers of rows, AND, I will be updating each worksheet with new data from time to time, thus the need for a dynamic chart)

Relative Or Absolute References? (each Day Is Exactly 10 Rows)

Apr 25, 2007

To simplify matters each day is exactly 10 rows (including header).

I already have code in column D that populates each D row IF it is the first unique occurance of column B for each day.
The forumla in column E for rows 2-10 put a daily total by each unique occurance.

The problem:
Since I am using absolute references in E2-E10 to contain the totals for that day if I copy E-2 -> E10 to E12-E20 the totals will be incorrect.

If I use relative references in the formula it changes the range for the day which is also produces incorrect totals.


How would I copy the formulas in column E to the addtional days so that the ranges follow for the specific 10 row day that they are intended?

Relative, Absolute & Mixed References In Many Cells

Jun 17, 2006

I've read several threads about switching between relative, absolute, and
mixed references across several cells however these solutions seem to result
in formula with all relative or all absolute or all mixed.

I need to change the formula in lots of cells with a mix of types of
reference. e.g. I need to change "$E$4*AD$2" to "$E4*$AD$2" & would prefer
not to have to go though each of the cells with F4!

Data Validation INDIRECT & Relative References

Oct 6, 2006

I am setting up a spreadsheet for user data entry. I have one sheet set up as a template to enable users to copy the required data header cells to subsequent sheets and (the problem) - to different locations on the subsequent sheets. The template is using validated lists with the criteria drawn from the cell/list directly above the current list. For example, the cell in R11C2 is validated/refering to the range: =Campaign

The cell directly below this is validated/ filtered by: =Indirect(R11C2). This works great in the template, or any subsequent sheet in which the cells are all located in the same row/column. However, when the template is pasted in a higher row, the Indirect refers to R11C2 rather than referencing the cell directly above.

Color Scale Conditional Formatting With Relative References

Oct 7, 2013

I'm having trouble with Color Scales within Conditional Formatting. I have a data set of commodity prices. In column A I have the name of the commodity, in column B I have the standard deviation of the price change of the commodity, and in Columns C-N I have the monthly % change in the commodity price. I want to conditionally format with Color Scales each row of price changes within Columns C-N based on each commodity's standard deviation (column B). If the price change is a one standard deviation or more decrease, I want the cell to be dark red; if the price change is less than a one standard deviation decrease, I want the cell to be a gradient of light red; if the price change is a one standard deviation or more increase, I want the cell to be dark blue; if the standard deviation is less than a one standard deviation decrease, I want the cell to be a gradient of light blue; and if the price change is 0, then I want the cell to be white.

I can achieve this perfectly by manually doing 3-Color Scale Conditional Formatting for each row, but it's very time-consuming. And Excel doesn't allow me to enter relative cell references when I'm doing the Color Scale Formatting. Is there a quick way that I can do this so that each row is color formatted differently?

I've attached an example file (there are many more rows within the original file) and formatted the first several rows manually as I want the final product to look.

2007 Macro Relative References Works On Only One Workbook

Oct 8, 2009

In Excel 2007 I am creating a macro with the "relative references" setting turned on. I want to repeat some tasks like: go to column A, sort, hide columns B thru F, hide columns H & I, return to column A.

Every time I try to create this macro by capturing key strokes, it inserts the workbook / worksheet name in the macro! Kinda defeats the ability to use it in any other workbook.

I am recording the macro in the PERSONAL.XLSX workbook. I have other macros that successfully perform in any workbook they are used in . . . but today I can't create one that doesn't incorporate the name of the original sheet it was recorded in.

Copy Relative References Whilst Using Range Names

Jul 20, 2006

eg say you call (ie insert a range name) cell A1 "firstcell", B1 "secondcell", then A2 "divisor1" and B2 "divisor2". if you put a formula in A3 which is "=A1/A2", how do you copy and paste this formula into B3 but getting the formula to reference B1/B2 rather than firstcell/divisor1, as it does by default?

Find & Replace Relative Referencing

Jul 28, 2009

I am working with data that is to be used for a regression analysis, and I am having trouble being able to find and replace multiple observations.

For example, column A has the two-letter abbreviation for each country in the world. Column B has the name of the corresponding country. At various places throughout the worksheet, names of countries exist.

I would like to find all instances of say "Albania" and replace them with "AL" then Algeria, Angola, Andorra, etc. Since columns A & B are in alphabetical order and the abbreviation and name correspond with one another, I would like to use a macro that will find all occurrences of the country name in the selected cell and replace them with the abbreviation then repeat the operation.

So, I need to:
1) Find all occurrences of the content in "B1"
2) Replace them with the content in "A1"
3) Repeat operation beginning at "B2"

Replace All Non Blanks In Column

Jun 26, 2009

I am trying to find a way to code to replace any cell that is not blank with the text "LOA", then after I replace all blanks with "Active"

The Replace blanks is easy:
Columns("K").Replace What:="", Replacement:="Active", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _

but before this I dont really know how to quickly replace all non blank rows. Only way I know is to loop thru all cells in the column checking for not equal to "" then replacing, but the code above for replacing blanks is elegant, and only replaces in the used data section.

Replace Blanks With Adjacent Cells

Aug 30, 2007

I use an old accounting program to download sales history into excel. For sales where there is only one line item and therefore 1 row, there is no problem. Sales with multiple items show a summary of the sale in the first row and the line item details in rows after.

On multiple item sales (shaded in yellow), the total postage is shown in the summary row (shaded in orange). The postage fields in the line items are blank (shown shaded in blue). I need to split the total postage by number if line items and put the value in the line items. i.e. if the total postage is $10 for two items, I need to show $5 for each line item.

The summary row identifies the number of line items in the "Qty" column ( cells in green). This cell could be used to divide into the postage (in orange) and also count how many rows below to put the answer in

Macro To Replace 0s With Blanks In Large Ranges

Mar 18, 2009

I've been looking around to find something like this for a while and I'm pretty new to VBA, so I haven't figured it out myself yet.

Basically, I need a macro that can take a 7-column range and replace the values in all cells containing 0 (but not 10, 20, etc) with a blank cell so that a count function in another column can function.

When I just select the range and use 'Find and Replace' to remove the 0s, it alters 10s, 20s, 30s, any number that even ends in zero instead of just the value of zero itself,

Conditionally Format Cell Using Absolute Values And Relative Cell References?

Mar 25, 2013

Below is my code which isn't formatting the cells it's suppossed to. It looks like it isn't doing anything. I think the issue might be with the highlighted section of my code, but when I go to "Manage" my rules for conditional formatting, excel references the appropriate cell under the "Applies to" section. I am using relative cell references for for the majority of the rest of the code and this section follows a section that selects the correct cell for this conditional format.

Selection.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:="=""ABS()>.005"""

Find And Replace Function Using Cell References And Wildcards

Mar 29, 2012

Any way to use a find and replace function involving a cell reference. I have a spreadsheet with ton of junky text burying information that I want. Here is a simplified example

Book 345353hg dgdgsdgfd fff Book belongs to Jim
Sneaker fdg4 Sneaker is worn by Jan
Gum dfg s d e te4345Gum tastes great
Cake jklsjflsjfjikCake smells delicious

The pattern is that the A1 text appears in the B2 text. What I want is

Find *A1
Replace with blank
Find *A2
Replace with blank
and etc.

So that in the end, I get this:

belongs to Jim
is worn by Jan
tastes great
smells delicious

I've looked at the functions of find, replace, substitute, left, and right and I can't seem to find the right one to do what I need.

Formula Relative To A Sheet

Feb 24, 2009

Is there a way to write formulas so the variables are relative to a sheet?

I have a workbook that collects monthly electrical meter readings and calculates billing for each tenant. A new sheet is used for each month and the formulas need to refer to the previous months sheet for the prior meter reading.

For example cell C36 in the sheet Feb09 might contain: =Jan09!D36 Where Jan09 is the sheet name from the prior month. When I copy sheet Feb09 to make sheet Mar09 Id like the formula in C36 to be =Feb09!D36.

Add Relative Row Formula To Cell

Aug 6, 2008

I'm importing comma delimited files into Excel. These files will contain formulas, but do not know on which row they will end up in once imported. My formula's need to reference the row they have been pasted to. For example, If I paste the formula on Row 2 the formula would be =A2+B2

Row 3 =A3+B3

However, since these formulas are coming in via a non-excel file, I need the cell reference to be dynamic. Something along the lines of =A#+B# where # would be interpreted by Excel as the current row the formula is on. (I know that '#' isn't correct.)

Relative Formula Copied Across Worksheets

Dec 8, 2008

It's been a long time since I have worked with Excell, it use to be the " $ " that made things absolute or relative.

I have this formula:

='1'!C194+C193 on sheet 1 named "1" without the " ". I need to copy it across 31 sheets. I thought that it was the " ! ", without the " ", that makes the address absolute so I took it out and then attemped to copie it to other sheets. The idea was that the formula would then read: ='2'!C194+C193 on sheet 2, and ='3'!C194+C193 on sheet 3 and so on. The formula is in the exact same location on each sheet, C194. But this won't work. I am at this time doing each formula one at a time. I have many workbooks that will use the same style of copy and paste; about 15 workbooks each with 31 sheets.

It would help if someone could explain how to save time. I do know how to use the Ctrl to select different cells and how to use Ctrl+Page UP/Down to change tabs. I just have to get the formula correct.
