Sum Across Sheets With Variable Cell Reference

Jul 9, 2008

i'm trying to use the sum across sheet function - i.e. - =SUM(Start:End!B1)
Whereby "Start" and "End" are the two relevant sheet names and "B1" is the cell I want added up.

However, can I make B1 variable, whereby there is a cell, say in A1, that contains the string "B1", so that I can make it sum C1 or B20 or anything on the other sheets?

Reference Sheets With Variable Sheet Names

Dec 4, 2007

I have a workbook with multiple sheets. There is an overview sheet and then 14 sheets allowing for 14 days worth of schedule information. There are then 3 sheets following the 14 days to total some information. The workbook users frequently change the sheet names of the 14 sheets to reflect days of the week.

I'm creating a copy for distribution that takes the active workbook and copies the values to a new workbook. There are columns that I would like to delete from the 14 day sheets and that would be easy enough if the sheet names were never changed.

The code I'm using currently follows (my thanks to Turtle 44 for helping on that section)

Sub Copy_Visible_Sheets()
Dim arr() As String
Dim i As Integer
Dim WB As Workbook
Dim WS As Worksheet
Set WB = ActiveWorkbook
Application. ScreenUpdating = False

'Make sure template is saved as .xls
If Not ThisWorkbook.Saved Then
MsgBox "Please save this workbook before generating a Client Copy."

Variable In Cell Reference

Apr 11, 2007

I have counted the number of rows using i. Now I need to pass that variable to the ActiveCell referances shown.

Do While Not Selection. Offset(i, -6) = ""
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "= round(R[i]C[-8],2)&""""&round(R[i]C[-7],2)"
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1) = "=round(R[i]C[-7],2)&""""&round(R[i]C[-6],2)"
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
End Sub

Use A Cell/variable As A Sheet Reference?

Jan 10, 2010

I have a formula that pulls data from another sheet using standard reference of sheetname! I want to build this forumla to use several sheets, and would like to pull the sheet names from other cells.

For example... instead of LEMONS!a1 and LIMES!B2

I would like to use REF1!a1 and REF2!B2

where REF1 and REF2 are pulled from cell Z1 which contains test 'Lemons' and cell Z2 which contains text 'Limes'

How can I do this?

Reference Specific Cell As Variable?

Feb 22, 2012

I have a spread sheet that lists a bunch of dates and expected volume that will be associated with the date. I need to build a macro that will look at the first date expand it out for several months then look at the volume and break that out over a week's time.

That part is simple enough but I need to turn this into a looping statement and I cannot figure out a way to get my macro to always come back to the next date in my list.

Ideally I would like something that is a variable that references the cell I want so I can do something like this.

MYRANGE = range("B2")


This should work for me perfectly if I can just figure out how to make the MYDATE varaible reference a sepecific cell rather than a value or text in the cell.

Using Variable As Cell Reference In Formula

Jul 15, 2014

I'm trying to use a variable as a cell reference in a formula using '&', but can't seem to get it to work. I've looked through the forum, which have examples of how to do this using a range, but not just as a single cell reference. This puts the formula '=VLOOKUP("A & lastrow &"" , Vlookupinput, 2,0)", which obviously gives me an error.

My code is:

Dim lastrow As String
lastrow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1

ActiveSheet.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 1).Select
ActiveCell.Formula = "=VLOOKUP("A & lastrow &"" , Vlookupinput, 2,0)"

Variable Cell Relation / Reference In Macro

May 29, 2012

I am building an Excel sheet for my company which keeps track of who has done what with a new client in a step by step process. I have it set up so that once a department clicks complete in a box it automatically emails (VIA a macro) the next person who needs to do the next task. Some tasks are done by the same person no matter what, other tasks are done by a project leader which is different depending on the client.

The problem I'm having is that, within the macro, I need to reference an email address in a cell X cells to the left in the ".TO" line.

So, in Column A I have the CLIENT, Column B The PROJECT LEADER, and Column C The PROJECT LEADERS EMAIL. Then the next 22 Columns are labeled steps with drop down boxes, once the have selected "COMPLETED" it triggers the macro and send the email, just not on the ones when it needs to email the PROJECT LEADER, since it's a variable. Below is the macro, how I can have the ".TO" line in the email reference the email address in Column C to the left of it?

Sub Mail_Workbook_1()
Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object

Assign External Cell Reference To Variable In VBA?

Jun 29, 2006

I'd like to assign a value located in a cell in a workbook to a variable in a VBA program in another workbook. I do NOT want to open the workbook that contains the cell with the value. I can't get the hang of referencing an external cell reference. Let's say there's a value in a cell named "nbr" in a workbook named "tst.xls" located in a path "c: est" that I want to assign to a variable "tstnbr" in a VBA program, what is the best way to code that?

Circular Reference - Value Of That Variable Changes Depending On The Location Of The Cell

Mar 16, 2009

Excel 2003 > Attached is a small model of what I am trying to accomplish. Cells B2 and B4 contain the same formula a formula that calls a simple function. The function has a variable passed to it and the value of that variable changes depending on the location of the cell. Now, see the function in Module1 it is called CellCalc. If the variable passed = Jim then value = 3. If the variable passed = Jack then value = 8. That is straightforward.

Note also that when Sheet1 is activated, I calculate the cells from left to right and top to bottom that is important. Here is the challenge. If B2 > 1 then I want to add B2 to B4 and set B2 to 1. I can set B4 properly but I cannot reset B2. You can see my 2 attempts that are commented out. Is there some way of accomplishing this or am I simply stuck in a circular reference?

The alternative to this is to write a function that operates externally on these cells. That will work for sure but then the values of the calculations will overwrite the functions in those cells, thereby taking away the dynamic nature of this application.

Variable Cell Reference Based On Minimum Difference

Feb 12, 2010

I have a monitoring system that records a data point with a date/time stamp several times a day at random intervals. For each reading I want to calculate the change compared to the first reading that was more than 24 hours ago, which could be anywhere from 1 to 20 rows above the current one. Hence with the timestamp in col A and the value in col B, the formula in col C, for example cell C20, needs to read something like =B20-Bxyz, where xyz is the row number of the first reading that is more than 24 hours, i.e the first row xyz where A20-Axyz >1.

Auto Generate A Comment Box Based On A Cell Value That Has Variable Reference Cells

Jan 30, 2010

I have been given the following code and it works great. I now need to adapt it to the following scenario: In the attached sheet, the user has to select either, "Suburban" or "Squad" in row 5. If the user selects, "Suburban" I need this script to compare the values they enter in a given row to the value in column "B".
If the user selects, "Squad" I need this script to compare the values they enter in a given row to the value in column "C".

Look at row 48, for example. If the user enters, "Suburban" in cell D5 then the value they enter in cell D48 should equal "1". If it does not equal "1" then it should proceed with the adding of a comment. Conversely, if the user enters, "Squad" in cell D5 then the value the enter in cell D48 should equal "2". If it does not equal "2" then it should proceed with the adding of a comment.

Add Up The Values Across The Sheets From The Same Cell Reference?

Feb 21, 2014

I've got a workbook with about 1,000 worksheets in it and I need to add up the values across the sheets from the same cell reference. I can get this bit to work with this formula:


So this adds up the contents of cell BJ3 across all worksheets located between 1 and 2241. However I also need to count the number of times a zero appears (zeros only not blanks) so I thought this might work:

=COUNTIF('1:2241'!BJ3, "=0")

However it just returns the #VALUE error.

Way To Save A Logo In A Cell In Order To Reference It From Other Sheets

Is there a way to create a Input type of sheet that I put the logo in and then on each of reporting sheets do an ='Input'!location_of_logo_cell type of formula, in a similar way that I would pull data from that same sheet, like ='input'A1?. It becomes very labor intensive if I want to make changes to the logo and then copy it to every sheet.

Summing Variable Values Across Variable Sheets In Multiple Columns

Jun 27, 2014

I need a macro that will create a sheet at the end of the workbook.

Sum data from a variable amount of sheets and display that data on the created sheet.

Here is a step by step:

Starting on sheet 5.

Column D has a variable amount of part numbers in it. These part numbers would be different between the ascending sheets.

Column T, U, V has an inputed number in it that would need added up across all duplicate part numbers in all the sheets.

(Note: The data would also need started on row 4. Everything above row 4 is headers)

Here is a small example:

13019090W Part A1
68705500 Part B1
64202900 Part C-11
59634600 Part D1
26005300W Part E1

I need the macro to start with sheet #5(starting on row 4). Check to see if there is data in column T, U or V. If there is, to create a new sheet at the end. And copy the entire line into that sheet (starting on row 4).

After that, to check every sheet after (excluding the newly created one, starting on row 4) for data in Column T, U and V. And then check for duplicates in Column D on the newly created sheet. If there is a duplicate to add/subtract that number in Column T, U and V to the SUM in column T, U and V in the newly created sheet. If there is no duplicate, to copy the entire line to the new sheet.

So that when finished. On the new sheet, you have the SUM of T, U and V for everything that has data in T, U or V for all of the previous sheets, plus the entire line of the first instance (excluding the first 4 sheets).

Variable Sheets, Variable Input

Mar 23, 2009

I run a machine that scans parts and is able to output the scans into Excel. Each part scanned creates a new sheet, and the number of sheets is variable as the number of parts scanned depends on the size of the lot. Also, since each part scanned is going to have a different number of features, the information being output on each sheet will be variable as well.

I am trying to figure out how to write a macro that will find the first feature, find the values for that feature I am looking for, output a max and min into a final sheet, and repeat for each feature, and for each sheet. I hope this is clear.

Reference Variable With Value From Another

Mar 3, 2008

Is there any way of referring to a variable name based on the value of another variable? I have the following code: (where the value for "aux" is defined somewhere else)

Dim aux As Integer
Dim number1 As Integer
Dim number2 As Integer
Dim number3 As Integer

If aux = 1 Then number1 = 1
If aux = 2 Then number2 = 1
If aux = 3 Then number3 = 1

The variables "number1", "number2" and "number3" are always filled with the same value ("1"). Is there any way of writing the "If-part" of the code in only one line? I was thinking that maybe there is a way of calling "number1", "number2" or "number3" depending on the variable "aux". For instance writing something similar to: number + aux = 1

Is there a way adding a reference to a workbook that is not dependant on the name? Possibly declare it as a variable at the beginning or something? The indexing is not possible either as they might have multiple Spreadsheets open at any one time.

Creating External Reference With Variable?

Feb 27, 2014

I'm wondering if there's any way to put a variable for a cell address in an external reference formula. Basically, I'm creating an abridged report of customer data that takes a single customer's info from 2 other workbooks on a networked drive and compiles the chosen cell data into one worksheet summary of their info. The base external reference formula looks like this:


I want to know if there's a way I can make the formula use a variable cell address that I can just type into another cell to tell it which row I need to grab info from. Generally, all of the customer data I need is spanned across multiple columns in one single row. The formula above appears multiple times in the sheet I'm trying to make. The first is for "Name", the next is for "Address", next is "Phone Number", etc. So for instance, if I want customer data from the main spreadsheet and that customer's info is on row 355, my first few formulas are:


Is there a way I can maybe have a designated cell where I just enter the row number I need (e.g. 481) so the formula sees that number and plugs it into the cell reference above resulting in the formulas adjusting themselves to ='F:Projects[ProjectDB.xls]Sheet1'!$A$481?
