# 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

## 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.

## 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

## 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.

## SUM Formula Not Summing All Referenced Cells

Sep 5, 2006

My problem is that when i used the forumla = SUM(Q11:AW11) to add up the range of cells it dosnt do it. It only added up 2 of the numbers in the range of cells. And missed out everything else. This forumla is being used to add up all the volunteer hours for volunteers for each month and for all the other months the formula worked fine but now its just being a pain.

## How Can A VBA Macro Find Which Cells Are Being Referenced In A Formula

Jan 15, 2008

I have a spreadsheet with a number of different formulae on it. I have a macro which I want to extract which cells are referenced in the formula in the active cell and then branch based on the which cell is referenced.

Is there a way to find the referenced cells without parsing the formula string?

## Prevent #REF! When Moving Cell Referenced By Formula

May 14, 2008

I have an IF formula on one worksheet that refers to another worksheet (ex: =IF(Page1!\$A13="";"";Page1!\$A13). The problem is when I move data from one cell to another the formula becomes #REF. (ex: =IF(Page1!#REF="";"";Page1!#REF)).

## VBA To Follow Formula To Referenced Range And Edit Source Cell

Feb 23, 2014

I have tried numerous versions of macros I found. Most get the same error of; Range object error or script error.

Here is the formula: VLOOKUP(C\$13,VESSELS_DATA,ROW(30:30)-12)

What I would like to do:

1) double click to on the cell with the formula

2) goto the worksheet "DATA_TABLES" that contains the Named Range "VESSELS_DATA"

3) go down the rows until the c13 is matched

4) offset column the same as in the above formula "Row(30:30)-12"

## 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?

## 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).

## Use Value From A Cell Immediately Adjacent To Referenced Cell In A Formula

Feb 25, 2014

I need to create a cell reference which will allow me to specify a cell in a table by value (using indirect) and pull the value from a cell immediately one row over for use in a formula. Say I have a table Containing column A and B; I want to reference the value of a cell in column A (e.g. "Large Widget") and receive (in the formula) the value in column B (e.g. "41 cm^2").

## Formula In Cells With Changing References

Mar 12, 2009

I am running a research experiment in triplicate. Upon generation of data for all three, I create an averaged value of the three. I then take this value and do more calculations with it on a separate sheet. I wanted to know if there was a way in which I could quickly generate formulas based on a changing reference cell.

Example Data:

V1A 28
V2A 26
v3A 30
AvA 28

V1B 20
V2B 22
V3B 18
AvB 20

Vxy represents the value of y sample, x triplicate. V1A being sample A, first triplicate. AvX is the average of the three values.

I want to be able to generate a formula that references AvA which can be applied to the cell immediately below to reference AvB. A simple example would be to square the average.

## Getting Indirect Formula To Update Cells References When Copied?

Mar 18, 2014

As you would normally use indirect formulas so the cell references don't change. Which that is what I want in the end, but I need to copy them to an indefinite number of cells first and would like to not do it by hand. I have found some solutions to similar questions/problems but cannot figure out how to make them work for me. So, what I am looking to do is this... (I have also attached the spreadsheet for reference)

I have gotten the information in columns A through F on the first sheet to update as rows are added, moved, deleted on the second sheet using Indirect range. Also, I could do this for Column I (Copmleted Proj. Avg. Terminations) but I would have to do it manually (as I began doing in I3, I4 & I5) but that would be time consuming. So I am hoping there is a way I can copy the formula down the cells are updated for the initial copy but then don't update if the referenced cells are moved or deleted.

## VBA - Insert Formula With Sheet References In All Blank Cells In Used Range?

Sep 9, 2013

I am try to get the following VBA macro to work; however, I keep getting hung up on errors regarding the formula I am trying to input. It is getting hung up on the apostrophes and dollar signs. I am fairly new to VBA so I am lost when it come to converting my sheet formulas to VBA.

Code:

With ActiveSheet.UsedRange.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks)
.Value = .Value
End With

## 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?

## Copy Cells So That Copying Formula Results In References As Shifting Horizontally

May 4, 2014

I began to ponder a way to copy down cells so that the copying of the formulas results in references as shifting horizontally instead of vertically. One particular reason that this occurred to me had to do with my attempting to use Excel to make more orderly text copied from Adobe.

So, for example, if I copied text from Adobe, I would paste it in Excel. Thirty lines of text would past vertically into a column, from Row A1 to Row A30, with each line of text in its own row. I wanted to figure out a way so that in adjacent columns, I could put it so that I would have a set of formulas reading in =A1 in Column C cell/row 1, =A2 in Column D cell 1, =A3 in Column E cell/row 1, =A4 in Column F cell/row 1, =A5 in Column G cell/row 1, and so forth. I realized that if I copied this down, in the second row, the result would entail references to A2, A3, A4, A5, A6. I would prefer that the references update to A6, A7, A8, A9, and A10.

## Multiple IF Formula With Cell References?

Mar 12, 2012

can Excel do a double if formula by looking at cells and not fixed type info.

EG: I have a % achieved and \$ bonus to pay: however the % achieved & the \$ bonus to pay information in the cell will change each month

So... I want the formula to say
=IF (look for cell A1 (which has %achieved) and if found use A2 (\$bonus) to give me an answer... otherwise false

The second dillema I have is that A1 has 3 ranges from 100-150, 150-200 & 200-300 to calculate with a set % in A2

## Identifying Cell References In Formula ADV

Mar 26, 2013

I am working with some fairly long formulas and I am looking for a way to highlight those cells AND work in the document. I know you can click in the cell and it will highlight them, but if you click off the cell the highlights go away. Is there a way to keep them highlighted?

## Formula That References A Cell To Deterimine A Tab Name

Jul 2, 2008

I have a "CURRENT MONTH" tab in a workbook; in that Workbook, I have a standard report that pulls Total Revenues from cell C6 of the tab I want to reference.

For example: In my "CURRENT MONTH" tab B6 has the label "CURRENT MONTH REVENUES" C6 has the formula "='May 08'!C6"

Every month I have to change that formula to "='Jun 08'!C6" as an example for June. (it's not just one formula, there are dozens referencing May that I need to change to Jun).

I could do an Edit/Replace, but I'd rather just type in the current month tab name in another cell and have the formulas pulling the data referencing that cell.

## Putting Formula In A Cell Which References Other Sheets

Mar 7, 2009

I am writing a VBA macro in excel. I have several sheets in this one workbook........one sheet for each day in a given month. Sheets for each day are labled as 3_1, 3_2 for march 1st and march 2nd respectively. I also have 4 sheets for the 4 weeks in a given month. The weekly sheets are labeled week1, week2 etc....

What i am trying to do is this:

In the week1 sheet i am trying to "put" a formula in say cell 9,12 which sums up the same cell in the first 7 days of the month. But i am having issues. Does anyone have a good way to do this via VBA?

## Displaying Sheet Name Before All Cell References In Formula

Oct 11, 2013

Any way to always include the sheet name before the cell address in a formula? For example, in my "Summary" sheet, I have a formula:

Code:
=A2 + B4/B5

However, without typing anything else, I'd like the formula to populate the sheet name since I will be extracting the formula as text and need the full reference:

Code:
=Summary!A2 + Summary!B4/Summary!B5

A way to get around this is to enter the equal sign, then temporarily select another sheet, then go back to the "Summary" sheet where all cell references will include the sheet name, but if there is a quicker way to do it using some kind of property or event in VBA, that would be ideal.

## Formula That References A Cell Where Workbook Is A Variable

May 24, 2007

Say cell C5 contains the name of a project (workbook). eg

C5 = "[Project1]"

In my current workbook, I want to find the value in cell B8 of Sheet1 of the project shown in C5. If I wrote this directly, it would be "='[Project]Sheet1'!B8"
But the name of the project is a variable shown in cell C5 (as explained above). So I need a formula that will find the value in cell B8 of sheet1 of the project shown in C5.

## Color Code Cell Formula References

Dec 3, 2007

If I have a cell containing a formula say c1= sum(a1..a10) and the output appears in a50. how do I colour code it so I know the formula in c1 is linked to the output in a50?

## Populate Formula Using User-filled Cell References

Jul 9, 2012

So I have a table where column B contains a text entry, and column C returns a certain other text entry based on if certain keywords appear in the B entry. Say, if B8 contains "Fresh Apple Pie", column C8 could return "Tastes Delicious" by searching for "Apple" in B8. I've got it work just fine using a ridiculously long If(Isnumber(Search())) function, but the problem with this is that if I want to adjust the output, or add a new input rule I have to go into the formula and that just gets messy. Instead, I'd like to start an extra sheet, or a table to the side, where the user can write in column D what he's looking for, and then in E what the formula should return. Ie., if I wanted to change "Tastes Delicious" to "Getting Sick of It", I'd just have to change the E8 entry to that text, but leave D8 as "Apple". I've been playing with array formula's, but I can't get the formula to search past the first row of criteria.

Basically, I want something like this, where columns D and E are open ended for any user to add new search criteria or change the existing (for example, I could put "Gummy" in C4 and "Candy" in D4, and B3 would then return "Candy"):

Item
Output

Search For
Classify as

Candy Apple
Fruit

[Code] .....

I've been using this formula:

{=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(C3:C4,B12)),D3:D4,"")}

(the cell references are different, but you can see the formula)

And it half works. If C3 is found in B12, it'll return D3, but if C3 isn't found I need it to look for C4, which it doesn't do. Naturally, the end formula will be a much larger range than two cells though.

## Mixing Range And Cell References When Coding FORMULA
