Selecting A Range Of Cells With R1C1 Notation

I'm trying to select a range of cells using the R1C1 notation. But I'm making an error in the syntax. I know it's really simple, I just don't know what's wrong.

Referring To Range() Using Shortcut Notation

Sep 23, 2008

I have noticed in many of the Excel help files that the developers liked to use shortcut notation for Range reference in VBA.

For example, Range("A1:B10") would be [A1:B10].

I was doing a bit of testing with this, and was not able to make the shortcut notation work with a variable. Does the shortcut method have the capabilities to do the equivalent of Range("A1:B" & LR)?

If it does have that capability, is it just due to force of habit that we always use Range() to refer to ranges, or would there be a more in-depth reason.

Referencing Sheet Using Cell Notation In Range

Aug 12, 2012

repTot = Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(Worksheets("Revenue").Range(Cells(xx, 65), Cells(xx, 65 + moNum)))

I am trying to debug the above line of code (moNum is just a variable the tells me how many months to extend the range to the right inorder to get year to date sums).

I have gotten to the point that it will run error free if "Revenue" is the Active worksheet when I run the line, but if I am on any other sheet it throws an "Run=time '1004' Application-defined or object-defined error" error. And if I change the range from cell notation to Column-Row, the issue goes away as well.

Can I Sum A Range Using R1C1 Format

Apr 15, 2008

I'm trying to figure out how many Widget As are in Order 0001, for example.

Order # Product
0001 Widget B
0001 Widget A
0001 Widget A
0001 Widget C
0001 Widget A
0002 etc.

I would think that I should use a sum(R1C1:R1C1) format to figure this out, but I might be making this harder than necessary.

Selecting Range Of Cells

Jan 31, 2009

I am trying to select a range of cells. The range I need to select starts in Cell A1. I need to select every row with data in column 1 up to the first row with no data. I then need to expand the range to all columns up the last column with data, including columns with blank cells.

The problem with my code relates to the selection of columns. It is only selecting up to column F. Column G is empty, Column H has data, Columns I-J are empty, Columns K-R have data.

Ctrl-A Selecting Limited Range Of Cells

Apr 8, 2009

I have a spreadsheet wherein if I press ctrl-A (normally Select All) it is only selecting a limited range of cells ($B$12:$M$22). If I press ctrl-A again from there then it selects all.

I can see something like that being useful in some cases and annoying in others, but I have no idea what is causing it. Some of the cells in that range are locked and others are not. Some of the cells outside that range are also locked while others are not. In any case, the sheet is not protected.

Updating Named Range When New Contact Is Added Using R1C1 Format With A Variable

Feb 1, 2010

The code below is for a macro that allows the user to create a list of contacts. The column containing the names of these contacts are then referenced by a userform (code not present) by way of a Named Range. I want to update the named range whenever the user adds another contact so this new contact shows up in the user form.

I am currently referencing the range containing the names using R1C1 style, but I cannot get the variable aspect to work correctly.

Subscript Out Of Range When Selecting Range In Closed Worksheet

cashsheetname Formatted Sheet
cashcurrcolumn A
cashfirstrow 2

Also the workbooks are both closed at this point (but it makes no difference)

Range(CashCurrColumn & Cashfirstrow & ":K" & Cashlastrow).Value
Set PelPaste = Workbooks(completepelname).Sheets(PELSheetName). _

Selecting A Range Based On Date Within That Range

Sep 26, 2007

What i'm trying to do is select a range based on the date which happens to be in the first column of the range.

For example, I have a column (A) that contains dates and column (B) that contains names.

Its easy enough to select the entire range using

Range("A1:B4").Select

I need someting that will analyse column A and conditionally selct the range based on the date in column A (ie. it will only select the rows where column A has todays date).

Meaning Of Bracket Notation

Feb 9, 2007

The following code was posted in another thread:

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Dim a, v, x, ws As Worksheet
Set ws = Sheets("Scheduled Courses")
a = ws. Range("a2", ws.[a65536].End(xlUp)).Value
With CreateObject("scripting.dictionary")
For Each v In a
If Not IsEmpty(v) And Not .exists(v) Then
.Add v, Nothing
End If
Next
x = .keys
End With
With Me.ComboBox1
.Clear ' clear the listbox content
.List = x
.ListIndex = 0 ' select the first item
End With
End Sub

How are the brackets used in the 4th line? I have not seen this notation before. Is this some kind of a shorthand for a Range("A65536") reference?

Selecting A Range Using VBA

May 28, 2009

I am having trouble selecting a range in my data to copy to another worksheet. I have declared two variables (startcell and endcell), as seen below, as strings:

Cells.Find(What:=startdate, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate

startcell = ActiveCell.Address

Cells.Find(What:=enddate, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate

endcell = ActiveCell.Address

After this I would like VBA to copy all the variables in a range that is bounded by startcell and endcell. Here is what my code is currently for selecting the range:

Range("A2:" & endcell).Select

Instead of A2, I would like to select startcell, but I cannot figure out how. Currently I can get VBA to recognise endcell. For example, using the formula above I can copy the range from A2 to endcell. However, when I try and use startcell as the beginning of the range (in place of A2) the code does not work.

Selecting A Certain Range That Changes

Jan 17, 2007

I have two tables in two different worksheets. In the first table, rows get deleted if the value in column 'S' (the first row to the right of the table) is not '1', and columns get deleted if the value in row '2' (third row above the table) is not '1'. In the second table, the number of columns stays always the same but rows get deleted if the value in column 'N' (first column to the right of the table) is not '1'.

After the rows and columns are deleted the tables get pasted in a ppt presentation.
Now the problem: I am a beginner in VBA and up til now I am only able to define a certain Range, e.g. ("A5:M17"), to be copied and pasted into ppt. But since the tables will sometimes be bigger than other times depending if rows/columns are deleted, I would rather define a dynamic Range. The top left cell of both tabels to be copied is always 'A5' but the bottom right cell changes.

Data Converted To Scientific Notation

Nov 3, 2008

I work for a company that exports data from a website into Excel.

So here's my problem:

The data is usually Part Numbers using numbers and letters. When a Part Number is, for example, 248E12 we have this reaccurring issue. Importing it into Excel automatically converts it to scientific notation (ie. 248E+12 or 2.48E+14 to be exact). "Format Cell" doesn't convert it back because it was auto-converted when "exported". I need a way of fixing this problem without going line by line and doing the math to convert it myself.

I don't have time for that. Some of my files have thousands of lines.

Selecting A Range And Then Summing That Range

Jul 19, 2006

I am trying to select a range of numbers based on an active cell. I then want to sum those numbers and have that total reported to a specific cell.

For example:

Say I have a column with a list of dates (Jan/04 thru July/06). I want the user to be able to click on any given field and have that field plus the 11 fields above it summed and reported. Any help?

I came up with something like

ActiveCell.Resize(12, 1).Select

This only selects the data from the active cell and goes down...I need the opposite. I need it to select the 11 cells above the active cell (plus the active cell) and sum that data.

Conversion Of Scientific Notation To Text Not Working

Mar 13, 2013

I have a large file with account numbers in Number format. Before I can import the data into a database the account numbers need to be converted to Text. I use Text(A1,0) to do this in a large file. The data then gets copied into a new Import file. When the data gets copied the account cell reverts back to scientific notation for the long account strings. The import file account column is formated for Text. The only fix is to then double click on each account that is in scientific notation to convert it back to text.

Is there another text formula I can use?

Stop Auto Format To Scientific Notation

Dec 29, 2008

I run a macro that imports a table from web page:

Excel tries to be helpful, and formats some of the cells in scientific notation.

I have tried to format the column to the "Text" format prior to the import with

Columns(2).NumberFormat = "@"

This does not work. If you import the table you can see that rows 1405, 1406, 1407, 1408 all have the same scientific notation value. Their true values should be 0E0, 0E4, 0E8, 0E9 respectively.

There are quite a few other instances in the column when a text value has "E" for the second character that Excel will format on its own.
