# Sum Formula With A Variable In Vba

Apr 5, 2007

I'm trying to enter the = sum formula using vba with one of the ranges in the formula being a variable. Can not seem to get the following to enter the formula correctly.

Range(Last_cell_4).Offset(1, 0).Formula = "=Sum(D4..Last_cell_5)"

## Inserting A Variable Formula With VBA?

Nov 23, 2012

I have a data set which is structured such that there are variable numbers of products (column A) from 1 - 48 and these repeat multiple times for each "Name" held in column B. I have attached an example of this which uses a data set with 7 entries reapeating 7 times.

I need excel to insert 2 formula for me multiple times which needs to varry according as follows

1. Calculate the average value of data in Column C - G for n cells starting at a specific cell (C2), I have inserted an example of this and highlighted it in yellow. This then needs to repeat down column C several times, the number of times this will repeat depends upon the number of different names held in column B. But I have this calculated already and stored in a cell im my main document.

2. Calculate the variance of each value in the x cells above from the average calculated in point 1 above. I have highlighted this also in yellow.

## Row Variable In Copy Down Formula?

Jun 18, 2014

I would like to do the following in a copied down row where n5 is a cell that contains a number that is added to a row number in order for the range to maintain n5 rows when copied down.

=average(b1:b1+n5)

## Insert Variable In Formula

Nov 3, 2009

I'm using Excel 2000/2002. I have a workbook with 12 sheets named Jan, Feb, etc.
I want to add a new sheet (Report) with formulas in various cells to get data from a cell in a particular sheet.

For instance, in a cell of the new sheet is: =Jan!D64. I want the user to be able to select a month from a drop down list and for the formula to change sheets depending on the month selected. The formula should be: =(sheet name!)D64. I tried playing with INDIRECT, but maybe couldn't get the syntax right. I can't use macros, the Excel is on a server and they are not permitted. The end user is less knowledgeable in Excel than me.

## Add Variable Into VBA For A Vlookup Formula

Apr 7, 2014

[Code]....

The lookup is for 00.2014, but this is to fixed. Want to use the same code next year to. So I already defined the variable 'jaar' which the user can choose with a validation. (and next year they set it to 2015).

I thought this code would do it but no luck:

[Code] ....

So what would be the correct way? Been shifting with the " " but its only make more and more mess.

## Variable = A Sum- Formula To Add The Cells

Mar 31, 2007

ActiveCell = "=(SUM(R3C5:R[0]C[-3]))"

In a macro I use that formula to add the cells of column E (or 5) from Row 3 down to the row of the active cell which is in column H (or 8), (the active cell would be H9 in this instance); and the result goes to the active cell as the formula =SUM (\$E\$3:E9).

But I want the result to go directly to a numeric variable, not to a cell. Something equivalent to this:

a=(SUM(R3C5:R[0]C[-3])), which is not correct.

What would the correct syntax be?

## Creating A Formula With A Variable

Jul 14, 2008

Column A will be completely empty.

When an * is inserted into a single cell in column A, that Row number will become the variable in this equation:

=Sheet1!\$G\$'variable'

i.e. if i put a * in A14, then the formula should read (=Sheet1!\$G\$14).

## Formula R1C1 With Variable

Nov 8, 2011

It's probably O so simple but: Using a variable in R1C1, here's the attempt:

-----------------------------
Dim RS_Period As Double
-----------------------------
RS_Period = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("B17") - 1
-----------------------------
Range("E2:E" & LastRow).FormulaR1C1 = "=(RC[-2]-OFFSET(RC[-2],9,0))/OFFSET(RC[-2],9,0)"
-----------------------------

I lieu of the "9" I need to use the "RS_Period" which is an offset value.

## Using Variable Instead Of Constant In VBA Formula

Jan 8, 2012

I try to adjust chart range using variable value instead of constant value.

My current code :
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 4").Activate
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Values = "='Check_2G'!\$Z\$2:\$Z\$32"

I need to make range ( "='Check_2G'!\$Z\$2:\$Z\$32" ) adjestable with varible like m instead of 32 in previous code.

## Formula Sum Variable Range

Jan 17, 2012

I am trying place the "sum" formula into multiple cells, changing with "i" (itteration process).

Something like:
.Range(17,counter).formula = "=Sum(B2:B20)"

when the couter itterates, the same line of code should give:
.Range(17,counter).formula = "=Sum(F2:F20)"

My actual code looks like: ... which doesnt work.
.Offset(17, " & ColumnHeadCout & " + 1).FormulaR18C" & ColumnHeadCout + 1 & " = ""=SUM(R[20]C[" & ColumnHeadCout + 1 & "]:R[" & NumberStreamElem + 20 & "]C[" & ColumnHeadCout + 1 & "])"

## Create New Variable According To The Formula

Jun 18, 2012

I need to create a new variable according to the formula:

Suma( Foreign_Owenrship_Plant * Number of Full Time Employees)/ Suma(All Full Time employees in the sector)!

However previosly I need to filter the firms within a sector within a country according to a three digit ISIC code. Lets say in Albania, in year 2002 in the Transport sector there are 5 groups of 3 digit ISIC codes. Once I have filtered them then I can proceed with calculating the new variable. How can I do this using programming?

## Setting Formula With Variable?

Nov 6, 2013

Trying to Figure out the syntax for setting range properties with a variable. Is this possible?

Code:
Sub Testing()
SomeVariable=7
.Range("B7").Formula="=Average(A & SomeVariable:C & SomeVariable)"
End Sub

## Allocate A Formula Into A Variable

Jul 25, 2007

I allocate result of formula FORMULA R1C1 into the active cells,,,AND NOW I wan to allocate it into a variable x or y (I dont want that the result appears in the spreadsheet, just into a variable to work the code!)

## Using A Defined Variable In A Formula

Mar 7, 2008

I have a macro which defines a workbook selected by the user as the name ServicingInfoFile.

The macro then proceeds to write vlookup formulas in another workbook to pull data from the ServicingInfoFile workbook.

Only problem is that the code errors out at the vlookup formulas every time.

Can I not use a Variable in a formula?

Is it just my syntax?

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
"=VLOOKUP(RC[-1],'" & ServicingInfoBook & "'!C1:C2,2,FALSE)"

## Formula: Change The Variable

Jun 22, 2009

I am trying to write a formula in code that uses a changing variable, "X".

here is what i have thus far:

.Value = (("G" & X) + 1) - (("G" & X) + ("B" & X))

I am trying to say: ((GX)+1)-((GX+BX))

X is a variable that changes in a loop. it will be the row number. so for example:

(G18+1)-(G18+B18)....I AM APPEARNTLY NOT WRITING THE SYNTAX CORRECTLY.

## Use String-Variable In Formula

Sep 16, 2009

if it is possible, to use a string variable in a Formula via VBA.

For example: ActiveCell.Formula = "=SUM(Sheet3!strVariable)"

Of course the code is not working that way. The Variable has the following structer: CellAdress;CellAdress;CellAdress... so it would perfectly fit into the formula-syntax.

Is there any possible way to do that? The reason behind it is, that I have to deal with a flexible range and I want to process this range with a formula. Actually the range is flexible, because of different filters and I only wanna count all numbers in the unhidden rows.

My varibale would then contain all celladresses, for the visible cells.

So in a nutshell: is it possible to somehow use a varible in a formula?

## Using A String Variable In Formula

Apr 21, 2006

Just a quick question, is it possible to use a string variable in a Excel formula (in VBA)? Im trying to do the following in VBA

mortgageSchedName = acName & " Schedule"
Range("B6").FormulaR1C1 = "=mortgageSchedName!RC[254])"

the above results in an error because there is no such sheet as "mortgageSchedName", but I want it to access the value of that string variable.

## Transpose Formula In Vba With Variable Row

Feb 6, 2007

I’m trying to have a transpose formula with a variable in the VBA code. The Data is in column AG, starting in row 6 but the end is always different. The transpose formula should copy the data into Column Z (also with a variable row). So if the Data is AG6:AG7 it should go for example to Z 50 and AA 50 etc.

Dim lngTransposeBottom As Long
Dim countnonblank As Integer, myRange As Range

Set myRange = Columns("AG:AG")
countnonblank = Application.WorksheetFunction. CountA(myRange)
Range(Selection, Selection.Offset(0, countnonblank)).Select
lngTransposeBottom = Range("AG65536").End(xlUp).Row
Selection.FormulaArray = "=TRANSPOSE(R6C33,R""" & lngTransposeBottom & """C33)"

Unfortunatly I always get the following error message: “Unable to set the FormulaArray property of the Range class”. how to change the code to get it up and running?

## Assigning A Formula To A Variable

Feb 13, 2007

G:G contains a list of integars, though some cells are blank; lets say 75 of the 100 cells in data range are < 0. I want a macro which copies a range where the number of rows = the number of values in G:G. my Macro:

Sub myMacro()
Dim rowRange As Integer
rowRange = Count("G:G")
End Sub

This, as you guessed, comes back with an error. Sub or Function not defined. Anyone the proper syntax for assigning a formula to a variable?

## Use Cell Variable In Formula

Aug 17, 2007

I am having an issue using vlookup with named ranges.

I have a work book with 3 sheets on, the 3rd sheet has lists defined as named ranges and is named as lists.

The first and second sheet has references to the lists on this sheet, using the validation e.g
=(named range)

I was using the following if statement =IF(\$E\$7="web policy",web_policy,IF(\$E\$8="NUD",BU,IF(\$E\$8="RAC",BU,IF(\$E\$8="IB",IB,IF(\$E\$8="BAU",BAU,not_known)))))

But I now need to add some more to this and have decieded to use Vlookup instead.

I have the vlookup in the 3rd sheet (lists sheet) and when the vlookup result is returned it returns the list name that I need to select, the problem I am facing is using this result to produce the list on sheet 1 or sheet 2.

The vlookup I am using is =VLOOKUP('Test Conditions'!E8,AD1:AE7,2,FALSE), but I can't use this on the first sheet as validation can't look at other sheets.

I have now changed formula slightly to;=VLOOKUP(ad32,AD1:AE7,2,FALSE), AD32 contains the formula that references the first sheet, but when I paste this into the validation I get the following error.

The list source must be a delimited list, or a reference to a single row or column

## Assigning Formula To Variable Inside VBA?

Feb 22, 2013

I tried to count rows from one sheet and to put this value as counter in VBA For-Next loop.

VB:
Sub Copy_ID()

[Code]...

It ends with "Invalid qualifier" error on the counter.Formula line. I attached sample excel with macro that I listed here.

## Formula Across Several Sheets With Variable Names

Mar 31, 2014

Is there a way to use formula (Sum in this particular case) across multiple sheets with sheet names having a particular criteria?

The sheet names are 5 digits but not sequential (cost centre numbers). I'm trying to find the total if the sheet name (number) falls within a particular range (e.g. 150xx-152xx, 153xx-168xx), with around 60 or so sheets in total.

I know it's possible to specify the range myself, or to add a blank sheet as a marker/guide to create a "sandwich" of the required sheets (e.g. =SUM(Start:End!A1)), but the cost centre ranges may change if they're changed so I'm trying to find a way to identify them as variables rather than requiring maintenance.

Although the layout of the sheets should not change (and so a macro might work..?) I think I'd prefer to find a formula (if possible).

## Array Formula With Variable Condition

Jan 7, 2009

I am running an array formula which is working fine except that I now need to add a further condition: that a one of a number of values in cells C1:C8 is found in range \$a1:\$A500. I've tried Or with comma separation and with * separations but nothing seems to work.

Can anyone advise me of the syntax?

## Getting Formula For Variable Data Validation

Dec 18, 2012

## SUM Formula Target Is In Sheet With Variable Name

Jun 5, 2014

In the first sheet "Sheet1", I am trying to SUM the values of column C from another sheet 'XXX'. The trick is that the name of this other sheet is a variable, like Sheets(1+i).name , "i" being an integer. I can't find the proper syntax for the formula below.

PHP Code:Â

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1Â =Â "=SUM(XXX!C[1])"Â

## Using Variable In Cell Formula As Part Of For Next

Aug 13, 2009

I have 2 sheets, Sheet1 and Sheet2. I want to populate Sheet2 Column B with a formula which will reference Column B of sheet1 so that on each iteration of the For..Next, the cell being referenced in the formula will change. So if i = 5, I'd like the cell to be populated with the formula =Sheet1!B5

## Referring To Variable Array In Formula?

Mar 14, 2012

Is it at all possible to refer to a array that may change in a formula?

For example I need to use a Vlookup formula, however the table array will change depending on the value of another cell.

I need the user to be able to select the column heading that the lookup should work off from a drop down list. So if the user selects column heading C, the array should start from column C though it will always end at column Z. If the user selects column heading Y the array would be Y:Z.

## Pass Formula To Variable In Macro?

## VBA - Concatenating Formula With String Variable?

Jan 16, 2013

I'm getting the generic 1004 error on the Range.FormulaR1C1 line, but I can't seem to see the problem.

Code:
Sub UpdateFormulas()
Dim stockFund As String
For i = 2 To finalRow

[Code]....

The mouse-over on the stockFund variable in that last line shows the correct cell address as the value and I checked the If statement to ensure it actually finds the number. I would guess that it would be a syntax error with that line, but it looks correct to me.
