SUMIF Doesn't Work From Other Workbook When Closed

I have a sumif formula in one workbook that relates to information off of another workbook...when the other workbook is open the information populates no problem when you close the other workbook I get the #VALUE error. Is this typical of SUMIF when referring to another workbook? I have a vlookup function that refers to the same workbook and it works fine when the other workbook is closed?

Macro Doesn't Work When Workbook/File Is Shared
I am encountering a specific scenerio where In I am creating a New file by copying one of the sheets And renaming that With todays date. here starts me problem when I try To share the sheet To work around I am seeing that th macro Is Not copying the sheet properly even though i have given PasteSpecial.

Doesn't Work If The Worksheet Hasn't Been Saved Yet
I'm trying to simplify a formula that I'm using in a spreadsheet that's being used mostly in Excel 2000.

2 reasons I'm doing this:

1) It doesn't work if the worksheet hasn't been saved yet.
2) It's ugly

=DATE(YEAR(DATEVALUE(MID(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1))+1,3) & " 20" & MID(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1))+5,2))),MONTH(DATEVALUE(MID(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1))+1,3) & " 20" & MID(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1))+5,2)))+1,0)

The formula returns the last day of the month of the name of the sheet. For example, if the sheet is names "Mar 07", it returns 3/31/07. (yeah, when the 2100 issue becomes a big deal, I'm not going to be ready but I have 92 years to think about it)

Even if I can't make it prettier, does anyone have a way to get the sheet name into a formula without VBA Code in a file that hasn't been saved.

Some Times If I Do A =if( ) Formula It Doesn't Work
What am I doing wrong here. Some times if I do a =if( ) formula it doesn't work. For example, look at the attached picture. Cell K63 should say "End of Run". But it doesn't, What gives?

Also I have had before where i do =IF(X62>$O$2,"End of Run", 0) (and $O$2 =81) and the cell when X62 is 81, not greater than. I know I can to >=, but thats not what I am doing.

Programme Doesn't Work When Sent To A Different Computer
I have a programme which works fine on my computer at home but when I send it via email to work the 'sort' function messes up (there is a chance it could be the 'vlookup' function, though) and all the cells in the sort range lose their formula reference - which is of course a tad annoying.

The part of the programme I'm having difficulty with is this:

Range("SsNo1").Resize(d, f).Offset(a, 0).Select
Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("FRSet1"), Order1:=xlDescending, Header:=xlGuess _
, OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom, _

Why Doesn't My Variant Array Work
The answer is probably "because I'm stupid", but I really can't get my head around it! I'm playing with variant arrays for the first (and possibly last) time,

The code I have is:

Sub test()
Dim vSheetColours As Variant
Dim iCounter As Integer
vSheetColours = Range("Colours").Interior.ColorIndex
For iCounter = 1 To UBound(vSheetColours, 1)
MsgBox vSheetColours(iCounter, 1)
Next iCounter
End Sub

(Obviously this code doesn't do anything useful - but if I could get it to work, I might have a chance of making my real code work!)

Colours is a range of 8 cells. Each one has some text in, and has a different background colour. I'm trying to store the colours.

If I run this code, I get a runtime error 13 type mismatch, and it highlights
For iCounter = 1 To UBound(vSheetColours, 1)

But if I replace
vSheetColours = Range("Colours").Interior.ColorIndex
vSheetColours = Range("Colours").Value

it works fine.

Find Method Doesn't Work With Some Text
I have a spreadsheet with data similar to the following:

11100000 MILK, NFS

If I use the following code to pass in a string variable and then attempt to find the string it never sees the text in line 2; or any line that contains (). The code is simply a test to try and figure out what i'm doing wrong. The actual goal is to search the entire sheet for text similar to that entered in by the user and then copy every row that contains similar text into another worksheet.

Sub CopyStuff()
strVariable = "car" 'I have tried "*car*" also
With Worksheets(1). Range("b1:b500")
Set c = .Find(strVariable, LookIn:=xlValues)
If Not c Is Nothing Then
firstaddress = c.Address
Set c = .FindNext(c)
MsgBox (test)
Loop While Not c Is Nothing And c.Address <> firstaddress
test = c.Address

Formula Requires Parameter In Quotes, Indirect Doesn't Work
I've been given a formula to use (embedded in an add-in that is password-protected). One of the parameters REQUIRES quotes.

The formula goes like this: =MYFORMULA(1,2,3,"ABC")

If I put ABC in a cell (say C5) and use the formula =MYFORMULA(1,2,3,INDIRECT(C5)), the formula doesn't work.

If I put "ABC" in cell C5, the indirect function still work make the function work.

Even if I have ABC in cell C5 and use =MYFORMULA(1,2,3,""""&C5&"""") or =MYFORMULA(1,2,3,""""&INDIRECT(C5)&""""), these won't work.

I wish I could just change the UDF behind this, but that isn't possible.

UDF Working When Called From Sub, Doesn't Work As Worksheet Function
I have written a user-defined function that searches for a small range within a larger range. The function requires two input parameters: the range you are looking for, and the range you want to look within.

For example, I might look for the string of values in cells A1:D1 in a larger range E1:H20. The function returns the row number in the larger range where the smaller range is found.

My problem is this: The function is working fine when I call it from another sub procedure. However, when I try to run it as a worksheet function, I get a "#VALUE!" error. The function pops up in the "insert function" menu, and it prompts for the two input parameters.

This Simple 10 Line Code Doesn't Work If Just The Reference Is Changed..

This code below won't work if the Customer Number is in column D instead of B even if the reference of B:B is changed to D:D, it doesn't carry the macro over.?

Macro To Copy Over And Paste Data In To A Work Sheet From A Closed Workbook
I have a macro code which gets the file list from a folder i specify and puts it in to an excel sheet as a column. I have then made a drop down list from this so the user can select the file they want.

From this file i wish to copy the data on a sheet that i specify. For example the sheet "dump" from file FR7_19.11.2009.xls (which will be a closed workbook) and paste its content in to the sheet "dump" in Summary.xls

I have a macro which opens up the closed workbook FR7_19.11.2009.xls and copies the sheet "dump" and then creates a new sheet of the same name and content in my current workbook (Summary.xls). However when i wish to select a different file to load in to Summary.xls "dump" the formulas i have been calculating information from this sheet all come up with #!Ref errors. I know this is because the macro i use deletes the old dump sheet before re adding a new one containing new data.

I am therefore looking for a macro which will simply just copy and paste the data from any file i select in to a sheet named "dump" as the data is always set out the same in every file but the values are different. I assume this will then mean that any formulas i use relating to this "dump" sheet in Summary.xls will work because the sheet is no longer being deleted and re-added the data within it has just simply been copied over.

Macro Doesn't Work On Button, But Fine From Macro Menu!
I've recorded a macro that copies an entire tab into a new spreadsheet then goes on the copy and paste information from one tab to another.

When I run the macro from the Tools>Macros menu it works perfectly.
But when I copy the code and add it to that of a button it fails and posts the following error: Run-time error '1001': Select method of Range class failed.

The first attachement shows the code for the macro as it is alone, and the second shows how I simply copied and pasted it into the 'view code' window of the button.

Needless to say I'm a beginner at macros and only every record them, I can usually make stuff work that way but this has me stumped!

Match(NamedRange,NamedRange,0) Doesn't Work
I have an array formula: {=SUM(IF(MATCH(Group,Group,0)=(ROW(Group)-ROW($C2)+1),1,0))}

where Group is: OFFSET(Groups!$C$2,0,0,Groups!$D$1)

and the array formula is entered in Groups!E1 and returns an #N/A error.

If I select the formula in the Formula bar and press F9 it evaluates to 48 which is the result I am looking for.

If it calculates OK using F9, why can't excel resolve it in the cell??

When I enter the match part as an array {=MATCH(Group,Group,0)} in an appropriately sized range, it works fine and returns the index of the first occurrence of the elements of the Groups array as it should.

The Groups array in column C is an array formula entered over 388 rows and contains:
where XCorel is another sheet in the same workbook.

Can anyone suggest why this might be?
If I replace the array formula in column C (Group) with its values the problem goes away, but I want it to be dynamic.

Save Workbook To Desktop If File Doesn't Exists

Here is what I have so far but for some reason it kept displaying the aleart message that the file already exists and wants to save it again.

I just added the displayalerts = false in but the script still does not know that file already exists. So when the file is closed it keeps saying file has been placed on your desktop.

Sumif For Values From Closed File
I am trying to summarise data from 50 different files (updated by 50 different users) into one file in one place. To do this I created a simple sumif function that links to those files. This sumif works correctly when those files are open. But when I open my output file after changes have been made to one or more of 50 input files, sumif function doesn't work when I hit update at the file opening pop up question and get #value error. If I start opening those files this error goes away and it works great again.

#VALUE Error When Using Sumif On Closed Workbooks
I have this formula in a excel file called test.xls which does a SUMIF on file "Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls". It works fine when I have Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls open at the time. When I close it the file displays a #VALUE in the cells

My formula is:

=SUMIF('G:FINANCEAccantia Budget2009Sales and GC[Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls]DP Total'!$B$7:$M$7,Cover!M$85,'G:FINANCEAccantia Budget2009Sales and GC[Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls]DP Total'!B9:M9)-'Page 15'!E9

This is really annoying as the formula works, and you need to open the linked file to display the results, otherwise you get the #VALUE. Is there anyway around this and why is it doing it??

Why Doesn't The Sound Play When The Value Changes Indirectly?
This is a complete mystery to me. I have some code (reproduced below) that plays a .wav file when any of the values in a1:a9 changes from 0 to greater than 0. This code works when I manually change one of the values to a trigger number in any of the cells.

The problem is that the values in a1:a9 are really pointers to other cells. For example,
a1 is "=sum(D9:D20)"

So, when I d9:d20 chnages values such that a1 changes from 0 to 5, the sound doesn't play. To put it simply, if I type "5" in a1 the sound plays. If a1 = D1 and I type "5" in D1 the value in A1 changes to 5 but the sound doesn't play.

How do I modify this code such that any change in the value of A1:A9, no matter the source of that data change, triggers the playing of the sound? ......
