# Sum Formula With Constants

Jun 23, 2007

I have a Excel budget spreadsheet. I need a running formula I can copy and paste to other month cells.

SUM=Bal+interest+interest1-pmt

=SUM(B11+B4+C11-D11) Interest(B4), interest1(C11) and pmt(D11) are constants. The formula I am using works but it won't copy and paste.

## VBA To Read Text Formula And Related Constants And Insert As Formula Into Cell

Jul 30, 2014

I have a situation where I have to curve fit data, this can lead to different formulas being used with varying constants.

Is it possible to pickup a TEXT based formula and related constants from other cells, and then place this into another cell as a functioning formula. For Example

Cell A1 contains the formula as a text string whether it be y=a+bx+cx^2, or y=a+b/x, etc
Cells A2:A6 contain the individual constants, a, b, c, etc

I would then want the VBA to read the text based formula and put it into an output cell as a functioning excel formulae.g

In cell B10: =a+b*A10+c*A10^2

I understand picking the constants up and putting the formula should not be too much of an issue, however trying to insert the variable form of the curve fit is the part that I am struggling with, and am unsure if possible.

## Constants As Arrays In Vba?

Apr 16, 2009

Can you declare a const as an array in VBA? For example, let's say I wanted to define an array of ORDINALS:

Const ORDINALS(0 to 9) = ("0th","1st","2nd","3rd","4th","5th","6th","7th","8th","9th")

## Select Constants

Aug 3, 2007

Can a macro be provided for selecting cells (including hidden) in the active sheet which are :

1. Totally consants ie not used in formula either in same sheet or other sheets

2. Constants ie figures used in formula in the same sheet and/or other sheets

## Using Constants In Same Module

Oct 15, 2009

I declared a constant like so:

Public Const iFirstRow As Integer = 6

I figured that any time I used this, at least in the same module, its value would be 6, but it was 0.

I changed it to ModuleName.iFirstRow, which seemed to set it straight.

Is this just how it is, or am I doing something wrong that is preventing me from using it without the module name?

## Constants Are (\$) Variables Are?

Apr 14, 2007

While \$ are constants for cells what is the symbol for variables? I guess when I dragged a formula down rows a certain number did not increase so I had to manually up each one as I went down the rows.

## Detecting Formulas Vs. Constants

Oct 1, 2006

In my company we have many spreadsheets with sections that contain formulas, which may be overwritten with "hard coding", manually entered constants, in certain situations.

Is there a way I can detect the differences between the two types of cells? I would like to setup conditional formatting that would highlight constants in a table that would generally only contains formulas.

## Variables And Constants Query

Oct 13, 2006

how do you assign a value to the variable to make it available to the module?

I have tried the following without success

Option Explicit
Dim batch As String
Dim folder As String
Dim title As String

batch = Sheets("Day 1"). Range("D1")
folder = "M:CR dim checksRetention"
title = folder & batch
file = title & ".xls"

## Compare Value Of X Cells To Constants

Apr 3, 2008

I need the SUM function. I know how to use SUM and in one of my workbooks it is used quite a few times, but for two columns it will not add the columns up. In the Q column I have this formula throughout the cells: {=IF(AND(\$H6="DM",\$J6=1),"\$100.00","")} and the other column is just about the same (just has different H6 value). Then I have a cell with the formula {=SUM(Q6:Q900)} and the end result is \$ -. This formula is used for other columns and it works just fine. I have checked the formatting in all the cells and have changed them to General, Number, Currency, and Accounting. None of those working. I have also checked the Calculation Tab in Tools>Options... and it is set to automatic.

## Named Range / Constants In Formulas?

Apr 11, 2014

I have the following formula.

=SUMIFS('Register Sales'!\$E\$51:\$C\$2500,'Register Sales'!\$C\$51:,A2,'Register Sales'!\$L\$51:\$L\$2500,D2)

The range changes each month so I want to use a named cell "LastRow" where I can change the number to replace the 2500. How do I use the range name in my formula without giving me a #value# error?

## Auto Creation Of Variables / Constants

Mar 25, 2007

I am trying to create a set of global variables (or actually constants) that can be used in my program based on two columns found in a spreadsheet. The first column in the spreadsheet contains the name of the variable, and the second column contains its value.

VarName VarValue
Var1 abc
var2 def
var3 ghi

When the program (which is an Add-in) is called by the user, the very first thing that I would like the program to do is to create each variable from the first column and assign the string value from the second column to this variable (or constant).

## Flag Cells With Constants In Formulas

Feb 6, 2008

I'm dealing with a lot of spreadsheets put together by people who are not that familiar with Excel. Because of this, there are many instances where the formulas created include constants. For example: = A1 * B1 + 200. I want to create a VBA routine that will cycle through the cells I selected and "flag" those cells that have a constant in the formula.

## Reference Variables / Constants In Add-in From Workbook

Feb 21, 2008

I'm wondering if it is possible to declare a constant in an add in, and then reference that constant from workbooks that use that add in?

Basically I want to set a version number in the add in, and check it from the workbook.

## Using Array Constants In User-defined In Vba Function

Oct 1, 2009

I have a function in VBA of the type. Function MyFunc(Indx As Integer, k As Long, Rho As Range, A As Range) As Variant .... End Function

which is called as a user-defined function from within the Excel worksheet. When called with the last two arguments being a range (i.e. Result = MyFunc(1,98,A1:A2, B1:B2)) it works fine. However, when I try to directly use an array constant instead of a range (i.e. Result = MyFunc(1,98,{10,11}, {20,30}), it returns a #VALUE error.

I thought I could fix it by redefining the last two arguments as arrays of type double, but this didn't work either (i.e. Function MyFunc(Indx As Integer, k As Long, Rho() As Double, A() As Double) As Variant .... End Function ).

## Change Numeric Constants In Column To Zeros

Oct 13, 2009

I have the following code

Call LastCell_Example(LastCell)
lastrow = Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).row
Set Datarange = ActiveSheet.Range("B1:" & LastCell)
' Set to 0 all cells that contain constants, but ONLY those that are numeric
Datarange.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants, xlNumbers) = 0

lastcell_example contains

Dim rng As Range

' Use all cells on the sheet
Set rng = Sheets("Courtage").Cells

' Find the last cell
LastCell = Last(3, rng)

' Select from A1 till the last cell in Rng
With rng.Parent
.Select
.Range("A1", LastCell).Select
End With

When I run the code above, I don't understand the fact that the first rows in the sheet AFTER "Courtage" are also being changed to zero.

Obviously, I'm not limiting my datarange correctly, but could someone explain what I need to do to limit the changed data to ONLY the current sheet.

## Array Constant Composed Of Named Constants

Jun 20, 2008

I try to understand what the syntax is to create and use an array named constant which would be composed of other constant.

Example :
Constant called AvgZone1 which is =AVERAGE(zone1)
Constant called AvgZone2 which is =AVERAGE(zone2)

and then create a named array constant based on the names : =AvgZone1,AvgZone2
is not working. You cannot for example do a SUM().

## Cell Type Constants Returns Wrong Order

Nov 28, 2007

I'd like to add items on a UserForm1 ComboBoxes in the correct order but I can't. That's because with the code below, in ComboBox6P1 the items are added with mixed order:

For Each thing In .Range("AC6", .Range("AC65536").End(xlUp)).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)
If Trim(ComboBox4P1.Text) = thing.Value Then
If aNew.Row = thing.Row Then
End If
Next
Exit For
End If
Next

I should add items in ComboBox6P1 in order -> AD6, AE6, AF6, AG6, AH6, the rest are empty cells. Instead of it adds AF6, AG6, AH6, AD6, AE6. When I change .SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants) to .SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible ) it adds it in the correct order but with another 200 emtpy cells in the ComboBox6P1. The format of the cells is General.

## Conditional Formatting To Highlight Cells With Formulas (versus Constants)

Nov 24, 2010

Is it possible to use conditional formatting to highlight cells that use formulas, as opposed to having constants?

I have a sheet that uses formulas to provide a default value, but you can type in a number if you want to replace the default. I want to be able to easily identify which ones use the default formula.

If I use functions like FIND, they look at the result of a formula, and not the formula itself.

I know I can write a UDF that will figure it out but I was wondering if there is some built-in way.

## Data Validation Fails With Named Range Of Array Of Constants?

Oct 27, 2013

I've set up a Named Range that refers to an array of constants, e.g. MyRange ={1,2,3,4,5}. This appears to be fine since I can output the named range to a range of cells in a row (e.g. A1:E1) and see 1,2,3,4,5 (one value in each column).

I'd like to use MyRange as the source for a Data Validation list in a cell.

Normally data validation list sources must be vertical, so I've set MyRange =TRANSPOSE({1,2,3,4,5}). This appears to be fine since I can output the named range to a range of cells in a column (e.g. A1:A5) and see 1,2,3,4,5 (one value in each row).

When I set MyRange as the source for data validation however, it resolves to an error.

why this setup doesn't work?

## Class Modules: Provide Users With In-Code List Of Constants

Jul 8, 2009

I am working with a class module and some fields require specific inputs that another coder may not intuitively know. How can I create a list of acceptable conastants that will appear as a drop down when the user is coding with the custom object?

For example:
I am creating an Email Engine object that will handle all my emailing needs in code, because coding emails is such a pain. Then I can just create the blasted thing, import the class module where needed and never have to worry about it again. Some coworkers are interested in using the module for their projects when I am finished. I want to put an option for message flags in the object, but only certain colored flags are allowed. How can I get the VBE to show a little drop down with the acceptable flag constants when another user types

[Object Variable].MessageFlagColor = {drop down list of options}
I started with

Public Property Let MessageFlagColor(Value As Constants)

End Property
But that hasn't gotten me anywhere.

## Format Formulas, Constants, Numbers & Text Cells Differently

May 8, 2008

I am attempting to write a VBA function that will add textual formatting to each cell that has content. I am just learning VBA; so far, as an example I have

Sub NewSub()
i = 1
j = 1
Do
Cells(i, j) = "'" & Range(i.j).Value & "',"
i = i + 1
Loop Until i = 40
End Sub

but, as I'm sure you'll notice, it does not work. In essence I want to wrap quotes and follow with a comma each cell that contains any content. The actual content test I haven't gotten to yet.

## Formula For Deleting A Formula When The Formula Has Done Its Calculation

Oct 7, 2009

I was wondering if there is a formla that will delete a formula when it has done its calculation, or stop the formula from constantly updating.

I've got a formula

=IF(COUNTA(A1)=1,TODAY(),"")

When something is typed in Cell A1 the cell with the formula will input todays date.

Is there a formula that will stop this formula from updating, as when you go into the file on a different day the date would have been updated.

## Replace Cell References In Formula With The Header Of The Cells Referenced In Said Formula

Dec 22, 2009

Here is the scenario:
A B C D
BananasApplesOrangesTotal113=A1+B1+C1

I need to reference the formula in D1 with the cells headers names.

In a perfect world, it would take
=A1+B1+C1:

and produce:
=Bananas+Apples+Oranges

## Add Additional Formula To Existing Formula To Exclude Weekends And Holidays?

Mar 27, 2014

I have an existing formula in a cell linking back to a start date only. determining how to add an additional formula to exclude weekends, and possibly holidays.

## Concatenate Formula Nested Within IF Formula Is Not Producing Expected Results

Aug 24, 2014

I am trying to use a combination of Concatenate and IF formula to produce an email.

My input.

D4: First Name:
D5: Middle Name:
D6: Last Name:

D8: Organization:

Once all these are filled, I want the formula to produce a result like

FirstName.M.LastName@Organization.com

I have used the following formula.

[Code] .....

Problem is if there is a middle name the formula works fine, but in case where there is no middle name, it produces the following result.

FirstName..LastName@Organization.com

How do I remove the additional (.) in cases where there is no middle name.

## Vlookup Formula In VBA - Object Error (input A Formula Into A Cell)

Apr 23, 2009

I'm having some trouble trying to get excel to input a formula into a cell. I'm still a novice at VBA right now, so I don't think my problem will be too much of a brain buster.

I want a formula in Cell A6 (and I already know it correctly works) in this format: =E6&VLOOKUP(I6,'FA-Fund Data'!B\$1:C\$2000,2,FALSE)&J6

## When Dragging Formula Down The Formula Skips X Number Of Cells

Jul 22, 2014

Is it possible to write a formula that skips x number of cells and have the formula autoincrement as usual. For an examples lets say I want to skip 3 cells and I have entered in the cells listed:

A1= "1"
A2= "2"
A3= "3"

Then I type in the simple formula in the cell
B1= "=A1"

and then drag down but it skips 3 cells so then

B5= "=A2"

B9= "=A3"

If it didn't skip then
B1= "=A1"
B2= "=A2"
B3= "=A3"

this is just an example as I will be writing more complex formulas and need some thing that I can write into the formula so that it skips.

Something similar to this B1 "=A1(skip3cells)"

## Copy A Formula In A Cell And Then Paste Only The Text Of The Formula

Jul 16, 2007

I would like to copy a formula in a cell and then paste only the text of the formula, but I can't figure it out. Basically, I would like to avoid going into the cells and absolute referencing or hitting F2, then copying the text.

When I hit "Ctrl C" to copy the cell, then hit "Alt/E/S/F/Enter" to paste the formula, it is just like a regular copy/paste formula-wise in that the references move.

## Combine Formula Which Reduce The No. Of Additoanl Formula's Columns

Apr 9, 2009

I have some student marks in columns B to F. If some one get below 40 marks he fails and the subject in which he has been failed will come in Remarks column. If he has passed in all subjects remarks column will show Pass.

To bring failed subject initial in Remarks i have to create 5 additional column and then thru Concatenate i joined them.

Is There any formula to show fail subject in Remarks column without creating 5 additional columns?

Aug 12, 2007

This task joins a string together based on a number of characters per cell in the range.

I want to isolate one range, Col N, and add an IF condition to it.

There may be other issues preventing this from happening, e.g. the number of IF that exist in the complete formula. I will isolate the current cell and its requirements and then post the entire formula at the end for reference....
