# Return Relative Cell Based On Condition

Jun 6, 2009

I have 8 columns of data, the first 4 and the last four columns have the values which correspond to each other.. Here is an example:

VALUES(A to D)NAMES(A to D)
ABCDABCD
1.3451641.3383581.286221.359808321325370391

So value 1.345164 corresponds to 321 and 1.28622 to 370. I need a function that will return a value from one of the VALUES columns which corresponds to the second smallest cell value from the NAMES columns. For example  here the second smallest number in NAMES column is 325 so the function would return the corresponding value of 1.338358.

## Return 1 Result From Many Based On Multiple Condition Check Of Cell Value

May 21, 2008

I am trying to write a formula to figure out Body Mass Indexes for certain age groups and whether or not they fall into a High or Low risk category. So, I am trying to write a formula that does the following. I have 3 columns, Gender, Age and BMI. I need the formula to do the following.

IF Gender = M AND Age >18, <39 AND BMI >7%, <19%, Then return an "L" into 4th column
IF Gender = M AND Age >18, <39 AND BMI >19%, Then return an "H" into 4th column
IF Gender = M AND Age >40, <59 AND BMI >14%, <23%, Then return an "L" into 4th column..............................

## Return The Relative Formula Of Another Cell

Sep 21, 2009

I currently have a list of totals that i want to easily be able to change the cells that make up this total.

I have been trying to set up one cell that contains the formula and then the remaining totals below are linked to this cell. Thus I change the formula in the top cell all the other totals also change.

## Formula To Return Value In A Cell Relative To Another Linked Cell?

May 2, 2014

The problem I am trying to solve is to have a cell return a cell value based on another linked cell. The cells I want to link are in separate tabs or could be another workbook.

For example if cell A5 in sheet2 is linked to A20 in sheet1...A5 has formula(=Sheet1!A20). I want the next cell B5 to look at A5 and return the value of cell Sheet1!D18.

So in essence I want the second cell to look at the first cell and return a value that is 3 columns over and 2 rows up.

## Countif Based On Relative Cell

Jul 15, 2008

I have this forumula in a cell:

=SUM((COUNTIF(F7:F69,"<=" & TODAY())),(COUNTIF(B7:B69,">=" & D7)))

and the trouble I am having is that in the second Countif, I need it to check the cell in the "D" column relative to what cell is being checked in the "B" column. Right now it is checking every cell in "B" against "D7" instead of "D8, D9, D10", according to what cell in "B" is selected.

## Color Row Based On Fixed Cell & Relative Cells

Apr 15, 2008

My sales spreadsheets have a column which is turned to 100% when the order comes in (i.e. when the salesman gets it in his commission). I have applied conditional formatting to turn the whole row green when this happens (for ease of seeing which orders are in)

We also have a cell for the Purchase Order "number" (as these come from the customer, these can be a straight number sequence - "12345" or a mix of letters and numbers - "ABC12345"). My boss would like this cell to be red if the "order in" column is at 100%, but there is no PO number.

However, when I put in the formatting:
(1) =\$K\$15=1 (to turn the row green)
(2) Cell Value is equal to 0 (to turn the cell red)

it will apply (1) no problem, but will only apply (2) if (1) is false. (i.e. if (1) is true, the whole row goes green, with no red in the PO box.)

If I switch them round (i.e. have (2) first), then I get the formatting that I want (i.e. green row with a red box), but if (1) is false, I still get a red PO box.

What I need is a way of only applying (2) if (1) is true. (or any other way of only making the PO box red if the order is 100% but there is no PO number)

## Multiple Formulas In One Cell To Return 1 If One Condition Met

Apr 13, 2014

I would like to put the following two formulas in one cell, so if one condition is met, it returns 1:

Code:
=IF(IF((AND(MATRIX!C4=0.795),1,0)

Code:
=IF(IF((AND(MATRIX!C4>=-0.094,MATRIX!C4=0.795),1,0)

The formulas work fine as single formulas in one cell, but I can't figure out how to do both in one cell. I tried this but I get errors.

Code:
=IF(((AND(MATRIX!C4>=-0.094,MATRIX!C4=0.795),1,0,IF((AND(MATRIX!C4=0.795),1,0)

I've also tried using the OR function, get errors. I'm not sure which to use, IF or OR, and I can't get the syntax right on either one.

I actually have six formulas for each cell, but how to do two, then I'll know how to do all six.

## Excel 2010 :: How To Move Graph Based On Relative Cell Reference

Dec 8, 2011

did in [URL] but my issue is complicated by not knowing what cell I need to move the graph to.

I am using Excel 2010 and I am a realitive novice at writing VBA code.

In My spreadsheet, I have a list of properties and some related cost info. From week to week, the number of properties varies. Some days I will have 6 properties and others I could have 100. Because of this, I need to make all of my references relative to other cells. I am having trouble repositioning the graphs that I have created from the data to be 2 cells below the label I have created for the graph (which is a merged cell covering Columns B:I on a row 3 rows below the last property in the report.

So far, I have:

Dim r1 As Range, r2 As Range, GraphRange As Range
Cells(2, 1).Select
Selection.End(xlDown).Select

[Code]....

## Return 1st Non Zero Value Relative To Known Row

Aug 5, 2008

i want to do is to use value in [K8] and to find a row which matches the value in [A11:A35]. Then to pick up the cell where the value is. The problem is that i cant use "VLOOKUP" or "HLOOKUP" because the value can be in any of the rows or columns from [C11:I35].

There is allways only 1 value per row, if itīs for any use..

## Return Cells Relative Position In A Category

Aug 1, 2008

I've got a list of story titles that are organized by genre, and I'd ultimately like to have a formula (not VBA) that automatically generates a "story id" based on the title's position within the genre (not the list overall). Here's a snippet of the list:

CREATE TABLES LIKE BELOW?IDGenreTitle
1.1GeneralTitle 1
1.2GeneralTitle 2
2.1Horror / SupernaturalTitle 3
2.2Horror / SupernaturalTitle 4
3.1Sci-FiTitle 5
3.2Sci-FiTitle 6

So what I'm looking for here is the formula that would give me the ID shown in the first column (I can modify it later for specific purposes). I've tried variations on the MATCH, INDEX, ROW, and VLOOKUP functions but just can't seem to get it quite right. Note: All the items in the Title column are unique - there are no duplicates.

## Return Values Of Adjacent Cells When Condition Is True Omitting Values Where Condition Is False?

Jan 15, 2014

Here's a simplified example:

ColA
ColB
ColC

Row1
A
Y
A

Row2
B
N
D

[Code] .........

I'm looking to return the values in column A adjacent to the cells in Column B equal to "Y". The kicker has been returning only the cells where the condition is true. Column C displays the desired behavior.

The closest I've been able to get is with a simple IF statement but I'm pretty sure the answer is a far cry away from there and likely requires an array formula. I'd prefer not to use VLOOKUP or OFFSET but will if the alternative is very complex.

## Cell Formatting - Red Text If Cell Matches Certain Condition Based On Another Cell

Sep 24, 2013

I have one column that contains a monetary amount (column AQ) , and another that contains text reading either "inflows" or "outflows" (column AC)

When AC says "inflows", AQ should be positive, and when AC says "Outflows", AQ should be negative.

I need the text in column AQ (the monetary amount) to become red when the the opposite is true.

i.e. When AQ is negative and AC says "Inflows", AQ should become red. And when AQ is positive and AC says "Outflows", AQ should become red.

## How To Have One Cell Copy To Another Based On Condition

Mar 10, 2014

I'm trying to set it up so that if a particular cell has any data in it, the contents of a different cell get sent to another. I want the no data/data to serve as a trigger.

As an example, if I put anything into cell A3, I want the contents of cell A1 to copy to H1. I'd also like it to be dynamic so that if I put something into cell B3, the contents of B1 get copied to H1, etc.

## Autofill Based On Cell Condition

May 20, 2014

I have a workbook sheet change condition that, when triggered runs the following code (amongst others).

[Code] ......

What I would like is to amend the above (possibly in a loop?) so that it skips the rows in which the value "New" features in range F17:F190.

So basically Autofill as per the code but leave the values in the cells of the range in which New features in range F17:F190

## Coloring Cell Based On Condition

Jan 18, 2009

I had an report and the rows of the report needs to be colored based on another cell value. My layout looks like this:

A1B1C1D1AVG
1011121330
14151617100
18192021400

For each cell, i need to compare the value of cell with that value in AVG coloumn and if condition is met, cell should be colored. Eg : If first cell value under A1 is Less than 0.2 * AVG of first row then color of the cell A2 should be red. After coloring the entire rows, then i should check and color the header row based on the color of Rows.

I tried first one, i,e coloring the rows based on conditional formatting and then written VB code to compare the color of rows and colored the header row. But the color index used in conditional formatting and the code are mismatching and the desired output is not coming.So decided to write code for coloring the rows cell.

## VBA Combine Cell Based On Condition

Jan 1, 2010

I have so data I am trying to combine based on count value of investment on Col A. If it appears more than once on col A then I want the col B values on col D. I have macro that works but I need make sure if Col B have any TRAC and TRL1 then I want to add that on Col D. For example so Col D1 would be EURX, TRL1 at 83.50, FTID and Col D5 would be TRAC at 87.88, Markit. Below is the macro.

## List Information Based On Cell Condition?

Nov 3, 2011

I would like to filter my list to show rows with a date difference of >0 (raised date later than date of contact) and move certain cells onto another sheet in the same workbook.

e.g if diff in F1:F1000 is >0, populate the following onto this sheet

Job no - Address - Postcode - Name - Date raised

Would this be a case of using a vlookup? having a few problems with it at the moment

## Sumifs With Condition Active Based On Cell Value?

Dec 20, 2012

I am trying to get a Sumifs to work where one condition is activated based on a cell value.

SUMIFS(\$E\$2:\$E\$6,\$A\$2:\$A\$6,"=Region",\$B\$2:\$B\$6,"="&B1). I have a drop down in cell B1 that lists all the products.

I want the condition to be active only when I make a selection in the drop down, if I don't then I want the Sumifs to ignore the second condition and do a Sum on Region.

## Conditional Format Cell Based On AND/OR Condition Of Another

Feb 8, 2008

i m trying to format a cell so that it colours in red when a specific text is chosen in another cell, ive tried conditional formatting but I cannot get it to work. e.g column A has a drop down list, if GB or IEN is chosen in that cell then cell in column K will become red. (as if these two are chosen then they have to input a number into column K). Once they have inputted the number into column K i want it to go back to its original format. Or if they dont select GB or IEN then it would stay in its original format aswell.

## Force Cell Entry Based On A Condition

Jul 31, 2008

I need to force our salespeople to enter information in a cell based on a condition. This is the condition: If I5=3, then I need to move the user to cell I3 with a message that says "Enter miles to site" -- I don't want them to be able to move from the cell until they enter the information. If I5 does not equal 3, then I don't need anything to occur. I need to apply this code to four separate worksheets in the same workbook. Also, they will be entering a number in cell I3, so is okay to leave I3 formatted for Number or General Number? Note: This question is also posted at the following link, but has not yet been answered by that group: http://database.ittoolbox.com/groups...dition-2270643.

## Nested IF Function - Condition Is Based On Two Values Within A Cell

Mar 10, 2014

I am working on creating a simple Excel Database of an Engineering Tool Room Inventory for work. However I can not seem to get one particular 'NESTED IF Function' to do what I want it to do. (In advance warning, I may be going down the wrong route and might have used the wrong Formula in Excel but from my understanding the 'IF' function seemed the most plausible.

Issue: All I would like to do is for a NESTED IF Function to be able to say this:

1. When a user inputs data into one column, for example 'Column A', with the following data: 4" Square
2. Then the neighbouring column, for example 'Column B', would have a NESTED IF Function.
3. Which would output a logical response, "A, B, C, D, E, F etc...", depending on what is written in Column A.
If 'Column A' - 4" Square, Then 'Column B' - A
If 'Column A' - 5" Square, Then 'Column B' - B
& So on...
But the NESTED IF Function should only put a logical response if there is certain values within the cell, for example:
User types a value into 'Column A' which contain - 4 & S, Then 'Column B' - A
User types a value into 'Column B' which contain - 5 & S, Then 'Column B' - B
& So on...

Currently to do the above function, I have utilised the following Excel NESTED IF Function:

[Code] .....

& The following happens:
1. User inputs data into 'Column A'
2. The NESTED IF Function then provides an automatic response.
3. However it relies on the data being inputted without the ' " (Quotation Symbol)'
4. & With me defining the exact phrase that should be typed into the cell, for example, "4" Square"

Other: I have attached an example worksheet of the NESTED IF Function in practice, with two tables. One showing what is happening with the code above and one table showing what I would like to happen but with no function.

## Remove Part Text From Cell Based On Condition

What I would like to do is remove part of an email address from a cell.

Ex. if the was a cell that contained "someone@somewhere.com" I would like to make that cell only contain "@somewhere.com"

## Msg Box Based On Relative Vba Reference

Jul 22, 2009

Im trying to get a message box to pop up if the result of a count formula is greater than one; ie. in a list of data to warn of repeats of a certain key reference.

Ive never had a drama with putting a message box in before but ive only based it off a constant reference whereas in this case, it will be based on a relative reference; for example, when inputted a value in A2, that has the same value in A1, the count formula in B2 will be 2, so i want a message box to come up. Same goes if the same value was put in A3, and B3 was greater than

## How To Count Condition Based On Having Another Condition

Apr 12, 2014

So I have one sheet that needs to pull data through to another sheet (which is a stats summary)

I have a drop down list containing 4 options all of which have to be counted separately on the stats summary sheet. However I only need them counted when a value is input in another cell in that row.

For example: I select option 1 from down down menu, but I only want this to be counted on the stats page when I enter a date in the "date" cell.

## Macro To Run Serial# 1 To 10 Based On Relative Reference

Apr 22, 2008

I need a macro that can run a serial# 1 t0 10 (or more or less) with A1 being starting point. Here is my illustration data.

Coloumn:A Coloumn:B
1 IrfanAneeza
2 Scooby Dooby Do
3 Dooby Dooby Do
4 Yaba Daba Doo

However, there is a little kicker in it. The range of coloum:B varies all the time i.e. B:B could be 1 to 10, it could be 1 to 3 etc. Thus, macro should list serial#'s based on the coloumn B:B range of data.

## Cell Equals 0 Changes When Condition Met - Leave Unchanged When Condition False

Mar 24, 2014

I am trying to perform a calculation in a cell that leaves the value 0 if before Feb 2014, changes to the value of another cell in Feb 2014 and leaves the value unchanged if after Feb 2014. I can get to the Feb 2014 value but after that month the value changes to 0.

The Cell formula that I am trying to use is as follows:

=IF(YEAR(\$A\$3)<2014,"0",(IF(YEAR(\$A\$3)>2014,H114,(IF(MONTH(\$A\$3)<>2,H114,AA118)))))

A3 contains TODAY()

H114 is the cell being calculated

AA118 is the cell containing the calculated value for the current month.

## Excel 2010 :: Return Range Of Cell Concatenated Based On Single Cell Value

Jul 2, 2012

I have a range of cells each containing a name. Based on a number that has to be entered manually I want excel to return the names concatenated in one cell. So for example:

Number of variable entered: 5

q9001
q9002
q9003
q9004
q9005
q9006
etc.

Should give me: "q9001 q9002 q9003 q9004 q9005"

I have been trying to work with formulas using IF and CONCAT functions. But so far I haven't figured out how to have excel return me the correct amount of variables for each separate number that can be entered seeing the number of variables entered can vary from 1 up to 50.

(Using Excel 2010)
