First although it returns the correct column, it always returns Row 1. Beyond me! Secondly I could really use some help in a line or two of code to select the cell at the intersection of the column and row.

Sub test()

Dim name As String Dim number As String Dim col As Integer Dim row As Integer Dim RowNumber As Integer Dim ColNumber As Integer Dim rng As Range

ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1").Activate

name = InputBox("type a name from Column A")...........

Any code or formula to highlight the intersected cells between a column and a row for any selected cell ?

Ex: if i select E25 the cells of column E1:E25 as well as the cells of Row A25:E25 to be highlighted in a certain color , and so on for any selected cell..

Basically, I have a simple - but large (48Mb) sheet with UK mileage distances between towns. As the are 1,000 towns and therefore 1,000,000 cells of data it is a little tedious to scroll to the desired town. see sample attached (this is not the real file obviously!)

What I would like to do is type in a start and end point, and have Excel look for the intersection and display the value of this.

I have a large spreadsheet that has row and column headers. I am trying to build a user form that will basically have a row combo box (already populated with the row headers), a column combo box (already populated with the column headers) and a text box. I need what ever I type into the text box to be inserted into the cell where the row of what I pick in the row combo box and the column of what I picked in the column combo box intersect.

For Example:

If I pick "Apple" in the row combo box which is in cell B1 and "Red" in the column combo box which is cell A4 to insert what ever I put in the text box into cell B4.

i have a table in excel with 36 rows and 36 columns i.e. 36x36=1296 individual cells. Columns and rows have headers/labels i.e. 36 rows with row label headings and similarly 36 columns with column label headings. I would like to automatically create unique cell names for the 1296 cells based on where the columns and rows intersect using the row and column labels. The cell name format I would like to create is [ColumnLabel_RowLabel].

I've manually created the cell names in the attached file as an example of what i would am seeking (i've greyed the cells that I've done this for).

Is there a way to get the data at the intersection of a column that meets a criteria using Index:Match and a row that meets criteria using Index:Match?

For instance, if my data is:

John Jim Kelly

Sept 0 0 10

Oct 10 0 0

Nov 0 10 0

How can I use an Index:Match combination to get the value at the intersection of Jim and Nov? Keeping in mind that my data is a bit more complicated than this, the table has 20+ rows and 10+ columns.

I am trying to create a table that references data in a much larger report that constantly has rows and columns added and deleted off of it. Here is an example:

This is a simple example of what I would be trying look data up from. But there are hundreds or rows and columns in the actual report, so I am creating another document that just pulls the data I need to review off of the larger report. New rows and columns are added to the report on a daily basis. So I am trying to have a cell return a value as a result of an intersection of 2 other values that remain constant. For example: Looking up the intersection of the row that contains "James" and the column that contains "Total Sales" would return "22" as the result in the cell.

I am making a rough gantt chart in excel for a project schedule. Japanese at work love excel fro some reason that is why I am trying to do this. I have column headings for days ( 3/3, 3/4, 3/5, etc) and I want to find a way to mark the intersection when a date is input in another row. I tried to do some conditional formatting using symbols, but couldn't get anything to work.

see picture. I want to mark at correct date according to column headings when date is placed in column E or F. This example shows column E with 3/10 so I want to make a value appear at intersection AS and the row 3/10 is on. Would like to get a symbol to appear there if possible.

There is a database with work plans for a project cycle, which contains employee names, types of activities, planned working hours for each activity (not in time format, just number) and dates when these hours will take place. Each employee may have one or multiple activities and each activity has different number of hours planned to complete and different dates. My aim is to calculate the number of hours planned for each employee (to sum all activities) within a certain period of time.

So, what is the question? I need to calculate the number of workdays within the intersection of the planned period for the activity and my given period of time.

I'll give a small example to illustrate what I mean.

I'm calculating planned working hours for this week, which is 11/23/2008-11/29/2008. One of our employees, let's call him John, is going to work on three activities, A, B, and C. We have the following plans:

Activity A - 16 hours - 11/24/2008-11/27/2008 Activity B - 45 hours - 11/15/2008-11/25/2008 Activity C - 10 hours - 11/26/2008-12/01/2008

As you can see, activity A is going to be complete within this week, it's perfectly fine. Activities B and C should be counted separately, because they include days earlier or later than this week. Is there any way I can easily geet the number of workdays that are included in the plan period and this week?

Another thing to mention is that I'm working in Excel 2003 and it's not acceptable for me to install the Tools Pack, because I need this firmula to work on other employees computers and there is no chance they all will install it too.

I am having to figure out a particularly painful excel formula. What i need is a formula that will count the number of times an issue label in text shows up, but it has to match a certain time.

we can get the excel sheet to round the time to the nearest thirty minutes, so if a call comes in at 3:12pm it rounds it to 3pm. We label the calls that come in with a issue description also like "dvr issue." So i need a formula that will allow me to count the number of instances where if it says 3pm AND dvr issue it will only count it and give me a total in a specified cell. Is that possible?

I am trying to find out if i can reference to a table on Excel. For example; if i enter in one cell the word 'january' (a header on the left of the table) and 'week 1' (a header on the top of the table) in another cell, can i set it to produce the value in the table that coresponds to the two headers.

I have a code which locates a value in a column, and locates a word in a row. I've then tried to return the value that intersects these to findings. eg. The code finds a value in "A10", and a value in "E5", The code then needs to return the value in "A5".

I have 100 rows and 100 columns, where row 1 is dates, and column A is times, and within are numbers. On a second sheet I have a column (A) with random dates and another (B) with times. What I need is a third column (C)on the second sheet that looks at the date and time, finds the intersection on the first sheet, and returns the number found there.

How would I create a formula that would match a number in a range by column and another number in a range by rows, then fin the intersection of those 2 numbers?

I have named the range of Column headings in that matrix as "Weight", and the range of Row headings as "Height". And then all the matrix cells contain some values.

Now I need to find the value from intersection of height and weight (please see the attached excel file)

Attention: I need to use excel VBA code to do the trick. (Not Worksheet formula using for example INDEX and MATCH)

There used to be a function called "snap to grid". What happened to it? I want to draw a line and make it "snap" so that the ends of the line are at the intersections of cells.

This code works fine, but it does not look professional. I tried to write like: If Application.Intersect(Target, rng1, rng2, rng4, rng5) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub

it did not work, but as it is down here it worked

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) Dim rng1 As Range, rng2 As Range, rng3 As Range, rng4 As Range, rng5 As Range On Error Goto NoValidation Set rng1 = Range("B28:B55") Set rng2 = Range("D28:D55") Set rng4 = Range("H28:H55") Set rng5 = Range("J28:J55") If Application.Intersect(Target, rng1) Is Nothing Then If Application.Intersect(Target, rng2) Is Nothing Then If Application.Intersect(Target, rng4) Is Nothing Then If Application.Intersect(Target, rng5) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub End If End If End If End If End If If Target. Validation.InCellDropdown Then Application.SendKeys "%{Up}" NoValidation: Err.Clear End Sub

Column A | Column B | Column C Los Angeles | Fire Dept | 3 Los Angeles | Health Services | 12 New York | Fire Dept | 8 New York | Health Services | 22 New York | Internal Services | 100 New York | Public Works | 7 Chicago | Health Services | 15 Chicago | Public Works | 56 Chicago | Social Services | 4

And I am trying to make it look like this:

Fire Dept Health Services Internal Services Public Works Social Services

I've been searching the forums for this problem but I can't seem to find any answers. Anyway, this is the problem. See screenshot.

I want to compare A1 for the values in column B, then return the corresponding cell (column C) in column D. e.g. D1 = 2, D2 = 1, D3 = 4, D4 = 5 and D5 = 3.

I want to compare two columns. I would like to see if the contents of column B appear anywhere in column A, for any amount of rows, and if it does, to place the match in col C.

So in the example below, red in B1 would be checked in A1 through A1000 or however long A is. When any row has red, place that match in that row for C.

This would be repeated until all rows in B are complete.

I have set of data Pasted in 4th row, in the top row 44 columns values assigned i want move data from set of data to different column among these 44 columns

Like "Service Order ID" is 1 column in set of data ,it move to second column of top row

Some of column need to delete. (Service Order Type,Service Order Description,Created By,Status,Contact,Expected Delivery Date,

I have a spreadsheet with three columns (A,B,C). I want the third column C to be column A - B (A minus B) for each row, but only if there is a value in column B.

If there is no value in column B, then I want that row in Column C to just stay blank.
