I have referenced data in two colums on a sheet A and B. Column A contains the latest data, each month i insert new column (moving column A to column B). However all of my references continue to follow the original data (eg will change from column A to column B). this happens despite using Absolute references. (=$A$1). Is there a way to lock these cell references to only ever display column A etc?

A 'Days Attended' cell (N8) and a 'Days Absent' cell (O8). N8 needs to count the number of "Present" values there are on another worksheet. The other worksheet has dates across the top and names down the side.

When i use =COUNTIF("Attendance!C9:Z9", "Present"), and the next date comes along the formula changes to =COUNTIF("Attendance!D9:AA9", "Present")

ie. the reference moves a column across - the new date's absent or present is not counted. Using =COUNTIF(INDIRECT("Attendance!C9:Z9"), "Present"). is no good because when i add a new name i need the row reference to move down as a row is inserted. ie. both person's formulas count the same row. So, my question: I need the columns to stay the same - C:Z (leyway for future dates) and the rows to change as i insert or delete people from the system.

I am trying to cut/paste a row of formulas in my spreadsheet. The problem is that I want some of the referenced cells in the formula to stay CONSTANT and not increment on each new row. In this example, I want the references to row 17 (F17,E17) to increment (E18,E19,...), but I want the "G7" reference to remain hard coded (as G7) on each row I paste (because that is where my master value is). (The formula is working fine) =IF((F17>0),IF((F17<=G7),E17,0),0)

need to do to the below code so that when i drag the formula down it changes the sheet number....sheet1, sheet2, sheet3 and so on but keeps the cell reference the same?

I need to copy and paste data from the internet into Sheet 2, but it's not in the correct order, so I must swap column A and column B in Sheet 2 only. The problem with this is that when I swap them, the linked cells swap as well, which destroys my data on Sheet 1 columns C-Z.

Is there a way that I can keep the cells on Sheet 1 completely static, so that it only reads the data I put into the corresponding cell on Sheet 2?

Or maybe, is there a way I can just swap the cell information in Sheet 2 without messing around with the formatting? Just a complete swap of A1>B1 and B1>A1?

Moving between different sheets changes the procedure window, which is a good thing, but can also can be error prone and annoying to search through several windows searching for the procedure or module currently working on. Is there a setting somewhere to prevent VBE from changing the current procedure window?

I have over 9,000 rows of data. In column A, I have different values that I need to populate down to associate with values in other columns. I can't simply autofill all 9,000 cells in column A at once, because the values that need to be filled down change at irregular intervals.

My end goal is to be able to filter out values in column B to show their association with the value in column A, but I need column A fully populated.

So I need a way to fill A2:A7 with value from A1 (I don't care about B7 being empty, I can still have Martha in A7 with no adverse affects). But I need the fill to continue through 9,000+ rows where the number of rows to fill is inconsistent between value changes in column A (Martha-5, Sarah-3, Beth-4, Donna 3), and there are over 400 unique values in column A.

This is definitely more involved than I am familiar with, but any simple way for me to identify and list which of the 400 bakers made scones..

I have a worksheet with data in columns F,G,H and I. There is a total in column J. (=SUM(F1:I1)

I've written some code that allows a user to insert additional columns. However, I'm finding it difficult to find a way of changing the calculation in the total column automatically when a new column is inserted.

I have three sheets - Actual( which has actual figures from Jan - Dec), Budget ( figures from Jan - Dec) and a Summary sheet ( which is just the summary for the current month, say July and compares the budget VS Actual). Every month i need to change the summary sheet to the next months set of figures, say Augusts etc etc.

Currently i've been using find and replace, and changed the formula to the correct months column - but its a rather large spreadsheet( its a management accounts pack and has many many more sheets that link up - like lasts years comparison etc etc) Is there any easy way of linking ( without VBA) or anything complex, so that each month i can change my data easily?

I am trying to insert formulas to my cells in different columns and then fill down the formulas as many rows as in the reference column. So far I have put my formulas in a macro but I seem to get problems with " and ' symbols. My macro looks like this:

I have a master summary sheet that contains all the required information for 21 other worksheets. Each row contains the information for a single sheet. I have linked all the relative cells to the first sheet but would like create a formula that changes the row reference in each of the links rather than the tedious task of updating each individual link in every sheet.

I have tried using the indirect function but constantly get errors returned, the basic formula i have been using is: =INDIRECT("Summary"!C&,X1)

'C' is the column in the summary sheet that the information should be taken and 'X1' is the cell in the worksheet that will define what row the data should be taken e.g in one sheet the reference for that specific cell will be C5 and the next C6 and so on.

I'm using the following formula which is entered by using VBA on the worksheet change event but the cell reference 'A2' is not changing for each row, i.e. A3, A4 etc.....

Code: =MAX(IF( 'Device Use - 4 month Period'!$A$2:$A$20000=A2, 'Device Use - 4 month Period'!$C$2:$C$20000))

I am creating a schedule to use for our helpdesk - it has pre-defined tasks that need to be assigned each day - easy enough to accomplish with a formula. And I've done this by using this similar formula on each line of the tasks (This first task is based on a manual entery into one field (B19)) =IF(AND(B6="Liz"),"Paul",IF(AND(B6="Paul"),"Mark",IF(AND(B6="Mark"),"Diane",IF(AND(B6="Diane"),"Jeff",IF(AND(B6="Jeff"),"Dan R",IF(AND(B6="Dan R"),"Chris",IF(AND(B6="Chris"),"Liz","")))))))

So, B4 is one task (phones) and the formula above (B6) is from another task (tickets) and then a third task (admin) looks at the value of B5 and uses the same formula above, etc.

However, I want to be able to change the value of a single cell, based on the (manual entry) value of another (out of task) series of cells (i.e. Sick (B35) & vacation (B36)) - and I don't want any of the other task cells(in the C cell series of 'tasks'), that are basically linked together by the value of the other cell, to change. Thus, in turn, would mean that the same person would now be in two different cells, and thus is creating a circular reference.

Let me spell this out a bit clearer. The first manual field is B19 - If I enter 'Chris' into this field, then field C5 matches it. Then field B6 uses the formula above to figure it's value; as does B7 thru B12. Now, If I put another manual entry into 'Sick' (B35), then I want whichever task that person is assigned to (for this example, we'll say I entered 'Jeff" into Sick, and Jeff happens to be on 'tickets' that day) to change to whoever is in cell B12 - but I don't want any of the other cells to change - but, since they are all dependant on each other, this doesn't seem like a possibility.

I've tried creating a count of names in the Sick or Vacation fields and then added this to the formula =IF(AND(C5="Liz", B38=0),"Paul",IF(AND(C5="Paul",B41=0),"Mark",IF(AND(C5="Mark",B40=0),"Diane",IF(AND(C5="Diane",B40=0),"Jeff",IF(AND(C5="Jeff",B43=0),"Dan R",IF(AND(C5="Dan R",B37=0),"Chris",IF(AND(C5="Chris",B45=0),"Liz",B12)))))))

B38 being Pauls count; B41 being Marks, etc - so as long as their count equals zero, they are 'eligible' to fill that slot. B12 is the last person on the schedule.

I am trying to create a formula that references information on two different sheets, but i want it to show me the values that are newly created when a new row is inserted. The two current sheets are Master and Data.

I have a formula on Master that reads ='Data'!$K$3 to reference the value on Sheet data in cell K3. When a new row is inserted showing me the current readings, I want the Master sheet to show me the NEW value in cell K3 on the data sheet. The problem is, the insert of a row moves the formula on the Master sheet to now be ='Data'!$K$4. How can i STOP the insertion of a row from changing the formula so i continue to see the value i need?

I have a function Sum('1st Qtr:4th Qty'!AW1) in row 1 and dragged down 129 rows so the last reads Sum('1st Qtr:4th Qty'!AW129). If I insert a row the cell reference does not increment automatically below the insert location. How do I get it to do so. The insertion occurs when I run a macro.

how I can have a formula repeat down a column five times before it changes to another formula? For example. Say on tab 1 I have a list of products. On tab two I have five codes that repeat down the page over and over again. On tab two next to the repeating codes I need to repeat product one 5 times and then skip to product 2 on the 6th row and repeat five times and then skip to product 3 on the 11th row and repeat 5 times and so on?

I'm preparing an accounting model for my office use. How to solve the copying of formula to all other cells.

The detail is here:

Sheet 1: 1) I've entered a number 1000 in L2

Sheet 2: 1) I've entered a values in columns D,E,F,G 2) Calculations : at G2 : the formula is =D2*Sheet1!L2

The problem is when I Copy the formula in G2 through G3, G4, G5........... it changes to =D3*Sheet1!L3, =D4*ValidData!L4, =D5*ValidData!L5 and so on... but it should be =D3*Sheet1!L2, =D4*ValidData!L2, =D5*ValidData!L2, so that the L2 value shall be constant for calculations in all cells.

I have a master data sheet with four columns, A, B, C and D

Column A has the primary data and B,C,D has dependent data values;

So when I insert a new cell in Column A with cells Shift Down, I want mandatorily new cells to be inserted in the same row in col B, C and D as well so that data integrity is maintained;

The first three columns of a spread sheet we use if function to insert values to these cells based on the next three column values. We have already done it using IF function. However, the same function should happen through macro by referring to the column headers.

Example 1: If in column E header (E1) ‘Contract_Status’ and E2 cell value is ‘FAIL TO PAY’ then A2 value should be ‘No Owner’, B2 value should be ‘Terminated’ and C2 value should be ‘FTP’

Example 2: If in column E header (E1) ‘Contract_Status’ and E3 cell value is ‘TERMINATED’ then A3 value should be ‘No Owner’, B3 value should be ‘Terminated’ and C3 value should be ‘TERMINATED’

Example 3: If in column E header (E1) ‘Contract_Status’ and E4 cell value is ‘EXPIRED’ AND column F header (F1) ‘Contract_Renewal_Status’ and F4 cell value is ‘Cancelled by Customer’ then A4 value should be ‘No Owner’, B4 value should be ‘Renewal Cancellation’ and C4 value should be ‘cancelled’

Can anyone help? I need to achieve the following involving the insertion of rows from a specified value reference within the worksheet to which the rows are being added.

Where the specified number of rows have been inserted underneath the original entry and the separate values in column "B" have been listed in consequtive cells, relating to their original entry in column "D".

I want to insert a cell reference into the code below to replace the hard coded "100500" so the value in cell A1 replaces the criteria below. Is this possible ?

I am trying to multiply a range of cells by a cell reference. The cells currently have hard coded values in them. I know with past special you can multiply a range of cells by a copied #. I want a similar function to that just instead of a copied cell its a cell reference. No VBA.

I need to open a customer-submitted workbook which has a list of items in column B, marked by an 'X' in column A on selected rows. Each customer's list is tailored to them with, say, 25 rows each.

I have a master list with identical formatting but which has the data from ALL lists combined.

I want to insert an 'X' in column A of my master workbook for any matching items for which there is an 'X' in column A of the customer's workbook.

I could do this with a formula in column A of my master list, but each customer's workbook has a unique filename and I don't know how to make the formula use a changing lookup array, so I figured this is something that I have to accomplish with VBA.

I generate a range of random numbers in column C. Then I perform another task and then copy the randoms numbers in the range c4:c(some row) into another sheet.

But the two columns are not the same? I want to copy the same random numbers into the other sheet.

Is it possible to stop the #REF! error appearing in my formulae when I make a change to my spreadsheet? I have some complicated spreadsheets that take a lot of re-building whenever I need to make changes because of the #REF! error. I tried turning off automatic calculation and that seems to work, until you calculate, then the errors appear. I find myself copying formulae into a text file and then re-pasting back into the spreadsheet after making the changes - there's gotta be a better way! (Using Excel 2003).
