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.
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.
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.
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?
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...
I have the following VBA code, which works nicely -
PHP For Each C In Sheets("data").Range("A2", Range("A2").End(xlDown)) C.Offset(0, 5).FormulaR1C1 = "=IF((RIGHT(RC[-1],3)=""ago""),RC[-1],"""")" Next C
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?
When I drag a text file from my desktop into an existing Excel worksheet it automatically creates a new workbook. I'd like to know how to modify this such that I can drop the file into my existing worksheet (and not have a new workbook create) and then run some VBA macros on it.
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.
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.
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.
Private Sub Workbook_Activate() Application.CutCopyMode = False Application.OnKey "^c", "" Application.CellDragAndDrop = False End Sub Private Sub Workbook_Deactivate()
OR This one:
Option Explicit Private Sub Workbook_Activate() With Application .CutCopyMode = False .CellDragAndDrop = False
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!!!
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 â€śHoly Avengerâ€ť in the first drop box, and the value for that choice in the second drop box is always a â€ś2â€ť, 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 â€ś2â€ť in it, and the user would be required to choose the â€ś2â€ť in the drop box?
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?
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]
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
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:
'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
I have a worksheet with 20,000 plus rows, header=yes, and I need to delete all rows NOT containing the numbers 6600, 6700 or 6800 in column C. I'm currently using the below code which works, but is DOG slow.
Dim Firstrow As Long Dim LastRow As Long Dim Lrow As Long Dim CalcMode As Long Dim ViewMode As Long
With Application CalcMode = .Calculation .Calculation = xlCalculationManual . ScreenUpdating = False End With
