# Stop Displaying Formula - Display Result

Jun 10, 2006I entered a simple formula in a cell =B14*B16 but it won't calculate. The cell only displays the formula and not the result. tell me what I did wrong. I've attached a sample.

Workbook containing macros and formulas. The workbook will create worksheets automatically by macros and uses the same formulas in the worksheet. After creating the 10th worksheet these formulas stop displaying the result. They showed #N/A but in actual there supposed to have a values in each of the cells. By manually clicking the formula bar and pressing enter these values will appear.

View 9 Replies View RelatedI have a formula in A1 that I would like to execute from A2. I want the A1 to display the formula (so no "="), but I would like cell A2 to execute the formula in A1.

If A1 contains: "SUM(1+2)", how can I get A2 to display "3" without reproducing the formula?

A1: SUM(1+2)

A2: ????

I suppose I'm looking for something like this:

A2: ==A1

But, of course, that doesn't work.

If I do this it gets close:

A2: ="="&A1

But that returns "=SUM(1+2)" instead of executing the formula.

I am using the below formula to find the latest date (column N) based on fund (column G) and Vendor (column O) reference. How can I find (column I) where the balance of that payment is? I know there are formulas like INDIRECT RC[-1] but how to add them to my formula.

{=MAX(IF(Payments!G:G=B4,IF(Payments!O:O=C4,Payments!N:N)))}

Hopefully you will be able to help again. Is it possible to do a vlookup that references data on other tabs within the worksheet so that the result of the formula is in the cell not the formula.

So if my vlookup was =vlookup(a2,$a$1:$b$12,3,0) and the result was john smith i want just john smith in the cell. I know about copy and paste values but i was looking for a more automatic way. One that doesn't need intervention.

I have a quick question regarding this simple code thats been drviing me nuts. There x distinct pieces of Data in the range speciifed, but when i run this code, the reply posted in cell H1 is 1, instead of x.

Eventually the code will be built to check if the result is odd or even and then add an entry into the first blank cell if the result is odd.

I am trying to find a way to display text that is the product of a concatenate function in a defined cell, but not to have the function itself in that cell. Basically, I want to have the below function in cell A1. I want to add a command to it to take the result and display it in cell A2.

=CONCATENATE(C5,"_",'Attachment 3-A'!C9:E9,"_",IF(C5="","",IF(C6="MPL",IF(VLOOKUP(C5,MPL!B:F,5,FALSE)="Lease","Lease_Contributable",

IF(VLOOKUP(C5,MPL!B:F,5,FALSE)="Pre-Lease","Managed_Pre-Lease",

IF(VLOOKUP(C5,MPL!B:F,5,FALSE)="Non-Contributable","Managed_Non-Contributable","Error"))),

IF(VLOOKUP(C5,Sale!B:F,5,FALSE)="Assignable","Lease_Assignable","Managed_Non-Assignable"))))

The reason for this is that I need the cell to be selectable (it is generating a file name that needs to be selected and copied), but I don't want the code behind it to be seen. I can't find a way to make the cell selectable AND hide the formula from being seen when the cell is selected. This is because our people keep copying the formula rather than the resulting text.

I was hoping for something like a DISPLAYIN(target) function, but it doesn't seem to exist.

Excel 2003.

I have been struggling for an hour how to hide a number to text macro in a way that only macro result is displayed in a cell.

(I have one 2-3 years old xls, where I have managed with task, but now can't figure out how and how to unhide the macro

Can it be password protected somehow?

I have a s/s which is built on IF functions and references other sheets and I have used the s/s in the past without issue. However now I want to ammend the formula a little and excel will only display the formula itself, not the result of the formula. I have tried CTRL ~ to turn on/off the show formula function but this makes no difference.

My reason for changeing the current formula is that I need to turn a 2 (numeric) to 02 (which can be either numeric or text). This is the new formula.

=IF($A4="","",IF(VLOOKUP($A4,HCGTH1_DATA,22)=2,"02",VLOOKUP($a4,HCGTH1_DATA,22)))

Is there an issue with the formula or some setting in excel?

how to retrive and display Data. I've attached an excel file with the macros. That what I need is to be coded in Module1.

View 6 Replies View RelatedI use hex2dec frequently and input with a hex 'E' such as 05e8 is misinterpreted as exponential notation. I can use =hex2dec("05e8") to get the correct value, but when the hex number is in another cell, I get the exponent assumption/ conversion (to 5 x 10e8), or a # NUM error if it is in quotes. This seems like a blatant problem but I've found no mention of it in searches or FAQs.

I have a list of questions that need to be filtered by the user and i was looking for an effective way to do it.

Column A is the question number

Column B is the Question Category

Column C is the actual question.

The user wants to use a dropdown box and select the question category. the results they will get are the question number and the question. there may be several questions within a category so all questions need to be displayed for the category that is selected.

(I havnt explored the use of a list as it gives the user the chance to display all the questions and i am trying to keep the viewing space that this list takes up to an absolute minimum). Also i have mentioned a dropdown box as these are very familiar to the user and so they could use it without the risk of user error. I have attached a list of the questions.

I would like to look at an array and find the largest number. Once that is found, return the text value that is in column B from that row. For example:

Column....A.......B.........C.....D

....................Apple......5.....1

...................Banana.....2.....3

...................Orange.....2.....7

In this example, I would be looking at the array C1:D3. Because the highest value is 7, I want the text "Orange" to be displayed in a new cell such as A5.

To find the largest number, I am using =Large(C1:D3,1). How do I display its' corresponding text value from column B in a new cell?

I am trying to write a formula where the column header of the row in which a value other than 0 exists, will display for each instance (row) where a value exists in an array spanning 3 columns. So the result cell could be any of the three column headers, or a combination thereof.

I started the formula in P2 of the GL Detail-2012 tab. File attached.

Here is what I started: =INDEX($M$1:$O$1,SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIF($M$2:$O$67756,))). Not working.

When I drag my VLOOKUP formula down a column in Excel 2010, the return value copies the formula result from the original VLOOKUP formula result. For example, if the first VLOOKUP returns a value of 0.5, I expect to see 0.5 or 1 in the cell below that one. However, I get 0.5 which is not the expected result for the cell below.

When, I click the fx on the cells below, the expected return values appear in the formula result. After I click OK, the expected formula results updates and now appears in the cell.

I'm not sure what is causing this issue. My computer was updated recently from an old machine to a new one. I have never experienced this issue before.

How can I make XL (2000) display the macro start/stop recording and relative/absolute box that used to appear whenever I started recording a macro?

Such an apparently simple issue, but I can't resolve it!

Somehow I lost this small box, and I know how to force it to display via customize, but it doesn’t seem to work the same (relative does not work as such) and the buttons or box disappear.

I've got results in row 3 - 16 386 and sometimes these results are exactly the same in some rows. What I now would need is row AB to display only one of each result and row AH to display how many percentages of the time this particular result appears.

A workaround, found by accident, is to make the named area have more than one area.

I want to automate the Display labels in my Charts using VBA Codingâ€¦

I would need to use this small code in Charts with different Scales as some of the Scales in my Data are in a very large Range close to Trillions so its not possible to have these as the Primary-Y-Axis Scale and therefore I would need to use the in-built Display label option which Excel provides..

However, I always prefer to have the scale in the Range of Thousands so the Max I can have in the Scale can be 10,000 so if there is any Number more than that or the Scale is going above than I would prefer that this gets auto-calculated to Multiply with the remainder and show appropriate Scaling.

For Ex:In this example My largest Number is 4500000000 which is 100 M..So I would want the scale to show 4500 and the Display label as X Millions..

So The Display Label would be different for different Ranges but the Max Scale preffered would be 10,000.

I have a count for each site for certain cloumn headers.

But i want to collate these so that if there is a 1 in the column the it will output it with the column header. But there are 10 column headers and I would like to get a result that has all the columns with 1 in.

eg:

I am trying to display the result of a custom VBA function as a label on a userform. The function is called and takes arguments from three text boxes on the userform. I attached it to the exit parameter. (This may be part of the problem; I'm not sure).

There seem to be two problems, first all the text boxes don't always contain data, but because the arguments are not optional, I get a type mismatch error when the code runs (I tried switching some of them to optional, but it didn't help as you can see from my 'commented code).

The other problem is that even when all the arguments seem to be met (i.e. the text boxes all have data), I still get a compile error that the argument is not optional. This only happens if I try and pass the result to some aspect of the userform. As you can see from the last coded line in the custom function, if I assign it to a range on the worksheet, it functions fine.

I want to make a formula based on 2 times ex: 10:07:00 and 10:09:00. This formula should display "intime" if the diference between both is under 20 minutes, "outime" if the diference is above 20 minutes and it should display "error" if the time is under 0 minutes (this will only happen when someone makes a mistake typing in the time. For example 10:37:00 and 10:36:00)
