Static Formula Reference: Delete And Drag-and-drop Data To Get Rid Of Any Bogus Values

Jan 10, 2008

I making a template for multiple users to import data into for analysis. I want them to be able to delete and drag-and-drop data to get rid of any bogus values. However i need forumlas that reference those to NOT follow the values as there as moved. As a simple example say you have two columns, column A is a set of random numbers, column B is the number from coumn A times 2. If take the bottom half of column A and drag it up one cell, overwriting a cell, now the cell in column B next to the overwritten cell has a #REF err and ever cell below that now references a Cell in column A from the previous row. I want a formula that references a static address and will not follow the cell if it is moved.

If I use named ranges rather than specific cells references it works for the above example, however for my actual form it does not. Even though the ranges and formulas stay the same I start getting incorrect values. If there is no other way to this I will try to figure why the named ranges do not work.

Drag Formula For Reference Change

Sep 10, 2007

Is there an easy way to drag all the references to a cell in a formula quickly e.g If i have a formula like this is;

=IF(A1>0, A1+1,A1-1)

and want to drag all the references to the cell A1 to another cell in one go as opposed to one at a time?

Drag Formula Across A Row And Still Take Account Of Mixed Reference

Mar 15, 2009

1. I have data A1, A2, A3....down a column.

2. I have one value on C2 ( constant value)

3. the formula is a very simple multiplication formula. I want to multiply every single value of column A to C2. But it needs to be in across a row that starts in
D4. So,formula needs to be in (D4, E4, F4) there are other datas in the worksheet

4. So when I input =$A1*$C$2 in D4 it calculates it fine but when i try to drag the formula across the row so [E4=$A2*$C$2, F4=$A3*$C$2...]

it repeates the same fomula as D4 and does not adjust for the increase in column number.

Drag Down Formula But Cell Reference Number Not Updating?

Jan 27, 2014

I am trying to drag down a formula (see below). the cell reference A6 and E6 is not updating to A7 and E7 etc etc when i drag the formula down using the corner thing. it remains constant at A6 and E6.

=HYPERLINK("#INDEX('Shipping Tracker Week X'!$F$4:$F$3000,MATCH(1,('Shipping Tracker Week X'!$B$4:$B$3000=A6)*('Shipping Tracker Week X'!$D$4:$D$3000=E6),0))","Link 1")

im pretty sure the problem comes down to the hashtag and quotation marks that i added, as the formula properly increased the cell references when i drag down without the hashtag and quotations. however, i sort of need it because adding those seems to be the only way i can get the hyperlink to link me over to the other sheet and to the correct cell containing the hyperlink.

part 2 of problem: the hashtag and quotations is currently a workaround method for me. the original intention was for the hyperlink to directly link me to a website, which is referenced from a separate sheet. however, without the hashtag and quotations, i get a "Cannot open specified file" error.

Count Used Cells Formula. Make Reference Static

Nov 5, 2006

I have a problem using indirect in a counta function. Basically, I want to count the number of used cells in a range. However, there would be insertions to the rows (using the insert row) on top of the range.

my function is now =counta(indirect(" events database"!"A"&M22&":A"&M500)

However, this formula returns an error. What have I typed wrongly?

Drag Copying Formula Down While Skipping Cells In Adjacent Reference Column?

Feb 2, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with temperature data, all in one column (D), that was recorded every 10 minutes for several months. In two adjacent columns (E & F), I would like to record the daily max and min temperatures. I can manually do this with MAX and MIN formulas in column E and F respectively, MAX(D1:D144). But when I copy this formula to the next row, I get MAX(D2:D145) when what I really want is MAX(D145:D288)....and so on...

Drag Formula On One Vector And Reference Cells On Perpendicular Vector

Dec 21, 2012

I am wondering if there is a way to drag a formula, for instance, down, and each cell that I drag down, it references one cell to the right.

Excel Example.png

I attached a photo -- I understand that this is an overly simplified example, but the idea is that it would reference the row as you drag down the column.

Paste As Values To Each Of The Cells In The Above To Convert The Formula To A Static Value

Jan 29, 2010

I have the following VBA code, which works nicely -

C.Offset(0,5).FormulaR1C1="=IF((RIGHT(RC[-1],3)=""ago""),RC[-1],"""")"
NextC

What I want to do is Paste As Values to each of the cells in the above to convert the formula to a static value,. Is there a simple bit of code I can include in the above loop, instead of doing a Selection.Copy Selection.PasteValues etc over the range?

Drop Down List Reference Formula

Oct 7, 2009

I have a photography business and I'm building a spreadsheet to help me better lay out my cost/price/profits of my print orders. I have created a spreadsheet with all my vendor prices for print sizes and print finishing services. I have created a pull down list for my print quantity, Print size, it then references the cost and markup % to give me a total cost and price. The trouble I'm Having is that i want to also have a pull down for the finishing services and have it reference the qty, print size, and then know what the cost is for that finishing service and then give me the cost and price with markup.

I'm certain that if an expert had a look at the sheet it would be a simple "oh all you need is this formula" and presto I'm back in action finishing the spreadsheet. I have attached the worksheet.

Drag And Drop Of Non Sequential Cells?

Jun 20, 2014

Drag & Drop Example.xlsx

In the example attachment on the weekly tab, you will see I have daily totals and a sum for weekly. On the summary tab I have the columns going down with a link to the weekly totals.

I have over 5 years of data in this format and don't want to link each cell in one sheet to another. If I drag and drop, obviously the weekly doesn't come down correctly.

Is there another way as I don't want to have to do this for over 250 weekly totals (and counting) manually.

Drag-and-drop To Trade Cells

Apr 29, 2006

I have a spreadsheet where I often have to exchange pairs of cells. I currently do this by dragging Cell A to a blank portion of the sheet, dragging Cell B to Cell A's former location, then dragging Cell A to Cell B's former location. I was just thinking that I might be able to use VBA to allow me to drag Cell A to Cell B and have them "trade places".

I don't even know what events are involved in the dragging process so I don't know where to start.

Allow Drag & Drop For UserForm Image

Nov 1, 2006

I am looking to if there is anyway to move an image box using a mouse drag and drop action. I have put together a little example of what I am trying to work with and was wondering if anyone on here had any tricks to make this work.

I realise the drag and drop method only applies to the textbox and listbox but have seen some old code that can simulate the drag and drop by creating a border of some sort to illustrate where the image box is going to be placed and final just setting the properties of that image box to where the border is placed.

In the example type in a size in the width and height textboxs (I used 3000,3000) and then what I want to do from there is move the white box using the mouse within the blue box.

Code To Disable Cut And Paste / Drag And Drop

Dec 5, 2013

Which code is "better" to disable D&D, C&P....

Private Sub Workbook_Activate()
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.OnKey "^c", ""
Application.CellDragAndDrop = False
End Sub
Private Sub Workbook_Deactivate()

[Code] .......

OR This one:

Option Explicit
Private Sub Workbook_Activate()
With Application
.CutCopyMode = False
.CellDragAndDrop = False

[Code] ........

I noltice that one uses "Option Explicit" and one doesn't, one seems to be longer than the other, but when I tested both, they both seem to do the same thing. I did notice that neither one of them prevents a "paste" into the worksheet when something is copied from an outside source, but that is not a concern right now!!!

Override Cell Drag & Drop Behavior

Oct 13, 2007

For example. Dragging c7 to e5.

My range before dragging and dropping...

After the drop.

What do you think? I think it can be done but do not want to waste time going about it the wrong way. Please give me any ideas on how you would approach this problem.

Some information to start with. The modal dialog that pops up can be dealt with.

This one.

I can determine if I want to insert down or up. I am not concerned with shifting left or right at this point.

I can also determine the original address and destination address of the drag and drop operation by using the change event.

The ranges being dragged will be limited to a single cell.

Data Validation List With Static And Dynamic Values

Apr 24, 2014

Is it possible to have a dependent validation drop box that under certain conditions automatically produces an actual value in the cell instead of a drop-down list to choose from? For example, if I choose “Holy Avenger” in the first drop box, and the value for that choice in the second drop box is always a “2”, can you get it to auto-populate in the cell occupied by that 2nd drop box (cell B5 in the attachment)? Or, are you restricted to using Lists only, meaning that you could create a List that only has the value “2” in it, and the user would be required to choose the “2” in the drop box?

Disable & Re-Enable Fill Handle & Drag-and-Drop

Jun 19, 2008

I've created a macro to disable cut-copy-paste and drag-and-drop (below), but when the user exits Excel, the drag-and-drop option remains turned off.

The user has to click on the Office button, go to Excel Options, Advanced tab, and re-enable the fill handle manually. How can I have my macro do this automatically when the workbook is closed?

'*** In a standard module ***
Option Explicit

Sub ToggleCutCopyAndPaste(Allow As Boolean)
'Activate/deactivate cut, copy, paste and pastespecial menu items
Call EnableMenuItem(21, Allow) ' cut
Call EnableMenuItem(19, Allow) ' copy
Call EnableMenuItem(22, Allow) ' paste
Call EnableMenuItem(755, Allow) ' pastespecial

'Activate/deactivate drag and drop ability
Application.CellDragAndDrop = Allow

'Activate/deactivate cut, copy, paste and pastespecial shortcut keys
With Application
Select Case Allow

Drag Cell Formula For Paired Data

Feb 11, 2014

In my worksheet i have pairs of data from A2:A18. cell A2 is paired with A3, cell A5 to A6.

In cell C2, I have the formula =IF(A2>A3,A2,A3). then in C3 I have =IF(A5>A6,A5,A6).

I would then like to be able to drag these formulas down to C7 and take the appropriate data.

So another example, cell C4 should be =IF(A8>A9,A8,A9).

I have seen many formulas for how to drag skipping a row, but couldn't find anything on pairs of data while skipping a row as well.

The worksheet is attached : TEST.xlsx‎

App To Draw Curved Shape To Scale With Drag & Drop Capabilities

Dec 13, 2006

I am researching the possibility of using Excel 2003 WITHOUT a Cad or Drawing package to simulate a drawing. (Consultants inquiries are WELCOME). The idea is to prompt the user (Sales Rep or Customer) for a few key dimensions and then plot out a closed curve based on the coordinantes entered. This shape, which would need to be accurately scaled, would then be sectioned and used as a canvas for dragging and dropping various icons.

Why use Excel instead of CAD?

Other than "everyone" having it, the placement of the "icons" relative to the perimeter of the curve will be used to estimate material costs and generate a quotation like a configurator application.

Key hurdles seem to be the drawing of a curve with cells as pixels and using drag & drop with custom icons - possible as an Add-In?

How To Make Dynamic Drop Down Based On Static Cell

Sep 25, 2013

I am trying to send my field reps a spreadsheet that will allow them to pick the proper location for each building. The problem I am having is that there are ~45,000 buildings, each with anywhere from 1 - 92 locations. Here is how my spreadsheet is set up.

Sheet 1
Column A has the Buildings THIS IS NOT A DROP DOWN. THIS IS A STATIC CELL PRE FILLED OUT
Column B is where I want the drop down to be available for the rep to pick the location

Sheet 2
Column A has a list of the buildings
Column B has a list of the locations

I understand that normally I would need to create a named range for each building and its locations. However, there are more Buildings than columns in Excel. Is there a way I can do this using Index/Match, or Offset, or Indirect? I have a sample spreadsheet that can be found in my dropbox account using this link [URL]

Drag Sequence Having Sheet Reference?

Oct 4, 2013

I would like this formula to increase down the column as follows:

=Temp_Data!A1
=Temp_Data!A5
=Temp_Data!A9

Sequence is addidng 4 each time... Dragging results with:

=Temp_Data!A1
=Temp_Data!A5
=Temp_Data!A9
=Temp_Data!A4
=Temp_Data!A8
=Temp_Data!A12

I have seen the following work for others:

=INDEX(A:A, (ROW()*2)-1)

Can a macro be created to store the number as a variable and loop a certain amount of times adding four to that variable every time?

Excel 2010 :: Populate Cells From Listbox Drag / Drop - Can't Find First Empty Row On Worksheet

Feb 1, 2014

I am running Excel 2010 and Windows 7.

I have a form with a main list box and several other list boxes. I drag and drop records from the main list box to the others. When I drop a record onto one of the list boxes, a corresponding worksheet is updated with the same record. This works just fine.

The problem I have is:I close and re-open the form after having added some dataDrag/Drop a record to the list boxThe worksheet won't find the first empty rowExample: If the worksheet already contains 4 rows of data, I have to drag/drop 5 times before the fifth row will be updatedI would like to drop the data the first time and have the first blank row updated

Notes:

1.) I have tried variations of "xlUp", "xlDown", and SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell) in the "Worksheets("Monday")... line of code; all to no avail.

2.) The cells contain formatting (borders)

Here is the relevant code:

Code:

'Copy items from the list box to the worksheet
For intI = 1 To ListBox2.ListCount
For intJ = 1 To ListBox2.ColumnCount
If IsEmpty(Worksheets("Monday").Cells(intI + 1, intJ)) Then
Worksheets("Monday").Cells(intI + 1, intJ).Value = ListBox2.List(intI - 1, intJ - 1)
End If
Next intJ
Next intI
