Setting Long Complicated Formula To Cell Via VBA?

Jun 12, 2014

I want to set formula to cell S1 via vba.

This is the formula: =IFERROR(VLOOKUP(H3;'[VATCompanies.xlsx]1'!\$A:\$B;2;0);IFERROR(VLOOKUP(F7;'[VATCompanies.xlsx]1'!\$D:\$E;2;0);IFERROR(VLOOKUP(F7;'[VATCompanies.xlsx]1'!\$G:\$H;2;0);IFERROR(VLOOKUP(F7;'[VATCompanies.xlsx]1'!\$J:\$K;2;0);IFERROR(VLOOKUP(F7;'[VATCompanies.xlsx]1'!\$M:\$N;2;0);IFERROR(VLOOKUP(F7;'[VATCompanies.xlsx]1'!\$Q:\$R;2;0);I7))))))

Formula Too Long For One Cell

May 23, 2006

Got a formula that goes like this: =IF((L1=1),"Product 1",IF((L2=2),"Product 2",IF((L2=3),"Product 3",IF((L2=4),"Product 4".... and so on for a further 100 or so products. Obviously, this formula is too long for one cell.

Code Errors On Setting Cell Values To A Formula?

Jul 15, 2014

the following two statements return the error "Application-defined or object-defined error"

Code:
Sheets("Purchase").Range("PurchaseTax").FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(RC[-1]0,ROUND(RC[-1]/11,2),"")"
Sheets("Purchase").Range("FreightTax").Formula = "=IF(FreightCharge0,ROUND(FreightCharge/11,2),"")"

Getting Complicated Formula To Calculate Only If NOT (ISBLANK)

Dec 28, 2011

H4 is a date/time stamp I have saved as a macro. Returns 12/28/2011 10:47:00 AM.

I4 is the same macro and returns 12/28/2011 10:48:00 AM

J4 calculates the difference between the two (I4-J4), but only recognizes business hours and business days (Monday-Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm)

I only want J4 to calculate if I4 is NOT BLANK.

These are in a table so J4 is trying to calculate when there is data in H4, but not I4, and returning a large number like 981583.22

When I try to apply IF(ISBLANK) logic to the formula in J4, I get an error that it exceeds 255 characters, even though it works fine if I am not trying to put the IF(ISBLANK) logic in.

Here is the formula in J4. I want it to automatically calculate if there is data in I4. Otherwise, I want it to return 0.

=IF(AND(INT(H4)=INT(I4),NOT(ISNA(MATCH(INT(H4),HolidayList,0)))),0,ABS(IF(INT(H4)=INT(I4),ROUND(24*(I4-H4),2),
(24*(DayEnd-DayStart)*
(MAX(NETWORKDAYS(H4+1,EndDt-1,HolidayList),0)+
INT(24*(((EndDt-INT(I4))-
(H4-INT(H4)))+(DayEnd-DayStart))/(24*(DayEnd-DayStart))))+
MOD(ROUND(((24*(I4-INT(I4)))-24*DayStart)+
(24*DayEnd-(24*(H4-INT(H4)))),2),
ROUND((24*(DayEnd-DayStart)),2))))))

Complicated Array Formula - Where N Is Finite

May 29, 2012

I want a formula to do this... (x1*z1+x2*z2+x3*z3+....+xn*zn) where n is finite.

x1=a1
x2=a1+a2
x3=a1+a2+a3
xn=a1+a2+a3+...+an

z1 = 1.05^1
z2 = 1.05^2
z3 = 1.05 ^3
zn = 1.05^n

is this possible?

Creating Complicated Formula With Letters And Number

Apr 8, 2014

I have been trying to create a formula that will save me DAYS of messing around at work.

What I am trying to achieve is to have a sequence of numbers as follows:

BNA01A01 to BNA01A09 then have it change to BNA01B01 to BNA01B09.

This needs to be repeated for all letters to BNA01I09.

Then this sequence needs to be repeated to BNA12.

The last thing is for me to be able to change the formula in order to implement the same sequence on a separate sheet for BNB01A01 - BNB12I09 to BNL01A01 - BNL12I09

Add Addition If Condition To Existing Formula: Long Formula

Aug 12, 2007

This task joins a string together based on a number of characters per cell in the range.

I want to isolate one range, Col N, and add an IF condition to it.

There may be other issues preventing this from happening, e.g. the number of IF that exist in the complete formula. I will isolate the current cell and its requirements and then post the entire formula at the end for reference....

Countif - Formula Too Long

Oct 31, 2009

I need to add more arguments to a countif formula, but I have maxed out the 1024 character limit.

Is there another way of writing this formula or is there a way I can add more arguments to this formula.

Formula is:

=countif(A2:A9999,"AH")+countif(A2:A9999,"ARHC")+countif...

I have a list of the arguments, can I do something like:

=countif(A2:A9999,B2:B50)

(with the list of arguments in columns B2 to B50)

I want to do is copy a formula from one workbook to another workbook that I have open - have tried just copy and paste (only get the result, no formula is copied) and have tried paste special, but there doesn't seem to be anything relevant on the list. I'm sure there is a simple way of doing it.

Improving Formula; IF Statement Is Too Long

Dec 21, 2009

I have a formula which is currently too long and which I'm sure could be done more efficiently. That plus Excel is saying the formula is too long. I have pasted the formula below and broken it up for clarity:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
=IF(AND(E3="Three",I3<=100),
(I3*VLOOKUP(C3,costsnetwork,10,FALSE)/100),

IF(AND(E3="Three",I3<=250),
(100*VLOOKUP(C3,costsnetwork,10,FALSE)/100)+((I3-100)*VLOOKUP(C3,costsnetwork,11,FALSE)/100),

IF(AND(E3="Three",I3<=850),
(100*VLOOKUP(C3,costsnetwork,10,FALSE)/100)+(250*VLOOKUP(C3,costsnetwork,11,FALSE)/100)+((I3-350)*VLOOKUP(C3,costsnetwork,12,FALSE)/100),

Adding Text To Formulas - Formula Too Long

Jan 29, 2010

Is there a work around to pull data from cells in excel to another tab with standard language? For example the template language will stay the same except in example A's case the last sentence "0.0" hrs will vary based what's sitting in B34.

It's stating the formula is too long. Is there too much text?

Sometimes the link would be in the middle of the text as shown in example B below with dates 00/00/00.

EXAMPLE A
For any leave of absence that is granted for more than 10 days, time off is governed under the Disability Bank Policy. Under the Disability Bank Policy there is a 10 day elimination period which must be satisfied prior to gaining access to your disability bank. During this 10-day elimination period, you are required to use your sick time for the first 6 days (48.00 hours) and vacation time for the remaining 4 days (32.00 hours). After this elimination period, we use all the time accrued in your disability bank. Currently, you have a disability bank balance of "00" hours.

EXAMPLE B
After this disability bank is exhausted, you will use all remaining and future paid time off balances from your vacation/CME/holiday banks. Because your leave begins in 00/00/00 and ends in 00/00/00 we will advance you future paid time off balance thru 00/00/00. Once those balances are exhausted the remainder of the leave will be unpaid. Per our policy, should you not return to work, you agree to pay back any time advanced to you within 30 days of your separation from the company.

Find, Replace Function: Formula Is Too Long

Oct 8, 2007

I'm receiving this message when I attempt to use the Find, Replace function. Formula is too long". I have a column of cells containing text only. ( about 2-3 paragraphs worth) I'm trying to replace a name with another name, which works fine where the cell contains a single or few sentences, but fails to replace when the cell contains too much information.

Unable To Record Error, Long Formula Macro

Nov 25, 2008

I am working on using an excel workbook as part of a roll playing game and I am trying to record a macro and then put that in a command button which uses the randbetween, multiple if statements and multiple vlookup functions. I have successfully done similar things by just recording a macro and then pasting that into the VB editor. However this time I get a unable to record macro after putting the formula in the selected cell. I have tried copy and paste and just typing the formula with the same results.

Upon executing the formula I then want it to copy and paste special- values the result.

I'm assuming I have to put the VB code in manually but when I tried to do the formula I got a syntax error.

The worksheet I am working on is named new and I've included the formula in the a text box. I would like the result to show in J12 and be triggered by pressing the cmnbutton in k12.

Frequency Formula Takes Long Time To Calculate

Feb 12, 2010

I am using the below formula to distinctly count the number of customers that match the criteria that I have in Cells C7 and B10. The data is in a separate worksheet, that I am showing Named Detail of which will be changing on a monthly basis, so a pivot table does not want to be used. The detail data ranges from row 7-40,000, and the file is currently 8610KB's, and can potentially grow.

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(Detail!\$A\$7:\$A\$40000=C\$7,IF(Detail!\$B\$7:\$B\$40000=\$B10,IF(Detail!\$D\$7:\$D\$40000<> "",MATCH(Detail!\$D\$7:\$D\$40000,Detail!\$D\$7:\$D\$40000,0)))),ROW(Cust)-MIN(ROW(Detail!\$D\$7:\$D\$40000))+1),1))

This formula works but takes an excessive amount of time for one caluclation, and I need this for multiple column and row critera. So, can this calculation be changed in order to get the same result with faster calculation time? I am using Excel 2003.

Formula To Calculate Result Whilst Avoiding Errors Is Too Long!

Jan 22, 2010

I have a formula I've been using for a long time which uses VLOOKUP to find results based on various reference cells, and then adds them up. To avoid errors caused by VLOOKUP not finding anything for one of the references I have also used ISERROR. The formula returns a blank if the calculation returns a zero.

I now need to bring further references in to the calculation but, using the format I have been, the formula is now too long. Here is my extensive formula:

Setting Range.Formula With Custom Function

May 18, 2009

I recently set up some functions based on Chip Pearson's tutorial for referencing worksheets from Formulas. (http://www.cpearson.com/excel/sheetref.htm)

The problem I'm now having is that I can't use VBA to set these functions in place; it returns a syntax error.

For example, I want I37 on most sheets to have the same formula. So I have the following:

Formula To Check Range To Make Sure All Cells Are Either Blank Or 11 Characters Long

May 8, 2012

I need a formula that will search the range D8-D100 to confirm that all cells within that range are either 11 characters in length or blank. I will use it inside of an error message that will look something like this:

Setting Up The Range In The Criteria Section Of Sumif Formula?

Feb 17, 2014

A B

17-Feb 5.00

19-Feb 12.00

22-Feb 7.00

26-Feb 10.00

I would like to see the sum of B given it is in the range from 17-Feb to 23-Feb. My estimations so far:

=sumif(A:A,????, B:B)

How do I set up a criteria which would take values from 17-Feb to 23-Feb?

I also tried =sum(sumif(A:A,{17-Feb;?;?;23-feb}, B:B) but it wouldn't let me.

Particularly the problem is in entering the date in the array.

Merging 114,618 Cells Into 1 Very Long Cell?

Mar 30, 2013

I have a spreadsheet of barcodes 114,618 rows long. I have a program that requires me to enter in each and every barcode in a certain format. This is the format that it requires me to place the barcodes into.

23423432, 23432342, 234324323, 234322344, 432432432, .............

so and and so forth.

Only problem is my POS system exports the barcodes in a format that looks like this:

545554545435
345435435435
354543534534
354534545453

Now I have a Macro to add a comma to the end of these barcodes. That part was a breeze, however, I have hit a brick wall when it comes to placing them into an ongoing sentence type format, that my program needs. I have found several ways to combine and merge and "justify" the content, however these typically only cover small amounts of content, and doesn't even come close to hitting anything over 100,000. I don't know if maybe I need to be using another program in tandem with Excel.
