# Sumproduct & Indirect

Apr 20, 2007

=SUMPRODUCT(--(A2:A1000=B1))

Column A has got random numbers, my formula attemts to capture the count of numbers as specified in B1, is there a way I can nest an indired t formula to mention in cell C1 ( > or < ) so it can look for numbers greater than the number in B1 or lesser as indicated

## Sumproduct With An Indirect?

Nov 16, 2009

The following formula sorts for specifics in the sheet named 200910 in the specified ranges in columns A and D to return a total found in column AB. This works just fine.

What I am looking to do, instead of telling excel what sheet to go to, is insert this: =INDIRECT(TEXT(Y10,"yyymm")&"!ab1749") to find the matching sheet name to the date that resides in cell Y10.

These both work separately on their own to return the needed value. How do I put them into one formula without telling excel what sheet to go to (1st formula) and specifically what cell to go to (2nd formula) because the cell location may change and I want to completely automate this?

## Sumproduct & Indirect Functions

Jul 15, 2006

Can someone help with this formula,

Cell \$A\$24 = A cell formatted as Month and Year = July06
Cell \$B\$1 = a date 1/7/06 linked to \$A\$24

Trying to use the indirect function to ref a sheet called July06 and other ranges here a example of one range =July06!\$D\$2:\$D\$247

This is what I've got

=SUMPRODUCT(--(INDIRECT(TEXT(\$A\$24,"mmmmyy")&"!\$D\$2:\$D\$247<="&\$B\$1)*(INDIRECT(TEXT(\$A\$24,"mmmmyy")&"!\$Y\$2:\$Y\$247>= "&\$B\$1)*(INDIRECT(TEXT(\$A\$24,"mmmmyy")&"!\$C\$2:\$C\$247="&\$A2)))))

## How To Use Indirect Function Within Sumproduct

I have the following formula, which works; however I need to make it dynamic.

## SUMPRODUCT With Indirect Formula

Jul 15, 2013

I am trying to sum the same data across several tabs but I am using information in the column and row headers to find it. For some reason this formula wont work and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

I'm getting #REF! and when I step through it, it fails when it reaches the Indirect statement.

## INDIRECT In SUMPRODUCT For Sheet Name

Dec 18, 2006

In book3.xls, worksheet 'statistics_by_class_day', how can I rewrite the formula in C7 such that the count is based on number chosen in A3 and C3?

=SUMPRODUCT((INDIRECT("'attendance"&\$A\$3&"'!C:C")=\$A\$7)*((INDIRECT("'attendance"&\$A\$3&"'!I:I")<>0)))

In the formula, I:I refer to Day 4 of worksheet attendance9 (ie Column I), can I use INDIRECT() by referring to C3?

## SUMPRODUCT INDIRECT & SUMIF Formula

Jul 12, 2006

I have a set of data as attached where the productivity of each staff is recorded on a daily basis.However, the cell in which their name is located on each tab of the day of the month might not be the same. I am thankful that the forum actually provided me with the formula located in cell c15.

1)However, I would appreciate if someone could translate what the formula means as I am not so sure what the formula represents.

2)The reason is I would like to calculate how many training days (TR), Medical Leave(ML) and Emergency Leave(EL) for the month of January for each staff.I tried modifying the formula but it didnt work.

3) Is it possible to use a vlookup function for this solution?

## SUMPRODUCT / INDIRECT Functions Not Working With ROW Reference When Combined

Apr 4, 2014

Basically I have an equation:

=SUMPRODUCT(G9:G11,H9:H11)/SUM(G9:G11)

It's just a simple percentage calculator for my purposes and works fine as is. However, I want to make it dynamic whereby from a user input the length of the array will increase or decrease, e.g. G9-G11 will become G9-G12 if there are four rows occupied with data. For all my other SUMming equations I have solved this and even came up with what I think is a perfectly valid solution for this one. The one problem is that it doesn't work when combined into a single equation.

My solution for the upper part of the fraction is this:

"A1"=SUMPRODUCT(INDIRECT("G9:G"&MIN(ROW(G9)+A8-1)),INDIRECT("H9:H"&MIN(ROW(H9)+A8-1)))

Where the user inputs the number of rows used in A8.

The solution for the lower part of the fraction is this:
"A2"=SUM(INDIRECT("G9:G"&ROW(G9)+A8-1))

[code]....

## INDIRECT Not Working For Dynamic Named Range In SUMPRODUCT

Feb 11, 2012

The formula is =SUMPRODUCT((Group="A")*(Project_Description="Long Term")*(Profile="B")*(INDIRECT(B9)="x"))

B9 through M9 have header text Jan_2012, Feb_2012...Dec_2012. Basically my aim is to get the above formula working before I drag it across so that the named ranges get picked up automatically from the headers.

Jan_2012 thru Dec_2012 are dynamic named ranges using INDEX (and not OFFSET as someone mentioned OFFSET is a volatile function).

The above SUMPRODUCT formula is giving me a #REF! error for the (INDIRECT(B9)="x") part. I know that because when I replace it with (Jan_2012="x") it works fine.

I realized while writing this that it may be because the named range in Jan_2012 is not the same size as that of other arrays. [but it is the same size - I've re-confirmed just now]

## Develop An Indirect Indirect Validation Drop Down List

Aug 18, 2009

I am trying to develop an Indirect Indirect Validation drop down list. Example, Building - Floor - Room, i.e. Select Building from a Validation drop down list. Then based upon the Building selected, select only the Floors applicable to the Building Selected. I am able to achieve this via an Indirect Validation drop down. However, when I attempt to then select the Rooms applicable to the Floor of the Building I selected, I can not produce an Indirect Validation off a previous Indirect Validation.

In the attachment, I have used Plant - Location - Room. I have name ranged the selections, and have used Validations Lists for Plant, and Indirect Validations for Location. The error occurs where I attempt to do an Indirect Validation for Room.

## Using SUM And INDIRECT

Nov 18, 2013

I am using these formula

=SUM('18'!N:N)
=COUNT('18'!A:A)

I need to enter the sheet name in cell A1 instead of the sheet number 18 in the formula using INDIRECT for both the formulas.

## How To Use INDIRECT

Mar 28, 2014

I have the following formula:

= SUM ('03:08'!D4, '03:08'!E4)

the 01, 02 ... 020 are the names of the sheets. How can I modify the formula so that I can use other sheet names. Name sheets whose cells I want to be myself in C4 and D4. I tried INDIRECT but I don't know for several sheets.

## INDIRECT And IF In One

Jul 19, 2008

I am using the below formula to return values from a seperate worksheet.

=INDIRECT("'[Test File.xls]Test Data'!A"&A4)

These values are text, numerical and dates. Sometimes there are no dates in the source worksheet to return, and I end up with 00/01/1900.

Is it possible to leave the cell blank if there is no value to return???

I had a stab at trying to nut it out, but it was a Friday afternoon, head was mush, and the pub was calling.

## Lookup With Indirect?

Dec 5, 2013

How could I create a formula that would look up based on month, category, and most importantly an indirect? I have attached a spreadsheet, the indirect is in K13 (and could be Quarter 1, Quarter 2, Quarter 3, Quarter 4) with matching data in "Sheet 2".

## Alternative For INDIRECT

Jan 26, 2009

I have used the function INDIRECT in 1 of my files.

The disadvantage is that both files (source and target) have to be open.

Is there a substitute for INDIRECT that works with a closed source file?

## Indirect Sum Through Worksheets

Sep 4, 2009

I am trying to sum through multiple worksheets but maintain flexibility using INDIRECT but it is not working!

I have a worksheet for each month of the year Jan - Dec with a financial result. In order to get a Year To Date figure I would have a formula such as:

=sum(Jan:Jul!B3) for a July YTD.

However, I want to maintain flexibility such that I can enter the worksheet name in cell A1, e.g. Sep and then have a formula such as:

=sum(INDIRECT("Jan:"&A1&"!B3"))

Thus allowing me to generate the correct YTD at any point. All I get is a #REF error.

## Indirect Sum Between Two Tabs

Mar 14, 2014

I am having some trouble with a handy formula I learned over this forum and its application between two tabs.

Referencing the attached workbook, the formulas in cell C6 & C7 are working for the end range I want, but the first section doesn't want to work. I'm not sure if it has something to do with the quotes (") or not.

## Can You Use INDIRECT In 3-D References

Jul 13, 2006

For example
=SUM(INDIRECT(C10))
where C10 would contain
="Sheet2:"&"Sheet3!"&"A"&ROW()
always returns #REF!.

However, ="Sheet3!"&"A"&ROW() as the Cell C10 entry will work fine.

Nov 6, 2007

Address(5,\$Z\$5+60) appears to refer to the cell I want; however, I'm trying to use the Address function inside a Rank function and have tried it with and without the Indirect function (as shown below) and it doesn't work --

The range always comes back as 0.

## INDIRECT REF TO DEFINED NAME

Aug 14, 2007

=INDIRECT("'" & A2 & "'!" & B2)

I am trying to use this formula to get to total of each month depending on A2. Cell A2 will have drop down of months names, that is Tabs names. I want B2 to have total of each month rather than cell reference, because Total may not be always in the same cell, we add rows if we add new account number or cost center.

So, Can I use name function instead of cell reference, for example April-total, May-total, June-total etc.

## Sum Indirect With Variables

Sep 28, 2007

I have several cells with defined names throughout a workbook which I need to be able to sum. The defined names all have the same naming convention (i.e. Assets575Total, Assets349Total, Assets286Total) where the numeric is an account #.

I have tried the follwing formulas below using Indirect, however, none seem to work:

{=SUM(INDIRECT("Assets*"&"*Total"))}

{=SUM(INDIRECT("Assets"&%&"Total"))}

{=SUM(INDIRECT("Assets"&"*"&"Total"))}

{=SUM(INDIRECT("Assets"&*&"Total"))}

{=SUM(INDIRECT("Assets"&%&"Total"))}

## Indirect Using Various Sheets

Nov 16, 2007

I have 40 sheets with info and 2 summary sheets. One summary sheet will summarise the data on sheets 1 to 20 and the other 21 to 40.

Im using the following:

=INDIRECT(ROW()-9&"!X10")
This works fine for my 1st summary sheet enabling me to display the vlaue of X10 in sheets 1 to 20 in D10:D29.

However in the 2nd summary sheet I wish to display X10 in D10:D29 but only using sheets 21 to 40.

Is there a way to eliminate sheets 1 to 20 and just use 21 to 40.

## INDIRECT With MIN Function

Jan 25, 2008

I just need to find the MIN of P6 to Px. Where x is a number that is from another sheet. (Lets say B3)

I thought this would be it, but its still not working, gives me #REF! error

=MIN(INDIRECT("P6:"& '[filename.xls]Sheet 1'!\$B\$3))

## INDIRECT Across Sheets

Aug 14, 2008

I have a sheet with tabs Jan - Dec

My goal is for a user to specify a 3 letter Month in Cell A1 (i.e. Jun) and for my sheet to calculate all cells C5 from Jan - Jun.

I have tried using the following formula =SUM(INDIRECT("Jan:"&A1&"!C5")), but the indirect function does not seem to span across workbooks!

## Indirect Fields

Sep 29, 2008

I am trying to figure out a solution and wondering what would work the best. Here is my situation. As an example, I have one big database with fields such as:

Item# Date Qty Price Cost ect...
1 3/4/08 3 \$9.00 \$7.00
2 9/5/08 5 \$8.00 \$6.00 ect....

This continues for up to 1000 lines from a database. I have this is a tab called "Database". From the data in the tab "Database", I want to be able to create 4 seperate reports.

The first report might only have the columns "Item #" and "Date".
The second report might only have the columns "Item #" and "Qty".
The 3rd with only "Item #" and "Price"
The 4th with only "Item #" and "Cost"

If I create a new spreadsheet called "Sales" and create the following:

ColA = Item #
ColB = Date

## Concatenate With Indirect + VBA

Jan 31, 2009

2 questions:

1. How can i put an Indirect function nested with concatenate?

=CONCATENATE(A8,B8,C8,D8,E8,F8,G8,H8,I8,J8,K8,L8,M8)

2. How can i get the formula to adjust to new data range without manually filling down. Assume the formula starts CELL Q8

## COUNTIF With An INDIRECT

Jun 4, 2009

I need to have a cell count the number of cells that contain a certain text found in cell \$b3. (the 3 is relative the B is not).

The data will be found on multiple sheets called "Game x" where X is an integer. (Game 1, Game 2, etc...) the cells are between \$b\$65 and \$b\$73.

i tried =COUNTIF(INDIRECT("'Game " & 1:\$A\$1 & "'!\$b65:\$b73"),\$B3)
but it did not work.

also after i get that working I need to do the same thing, but i need to count the number of times the Name in \$b3 appears in the List with the word "Win" in the "D" column (next to the \$b65:b\$73)

Again i tried =COUNTIF(AND(INDIRECT("'Game " & 1:\$A\$1 & "'!\$b65:\$b73"),\$B3),(INDIRECT("'Game " & 1:\$A\$1 & "'!\$b65:\$D73"),"Win"))

## Indirect To Non-volatile

Feb 26, 2010

why Microsoft have not made the indirect function non-volatile. In 1997, they changed the index function to non-volatile.

## Use INDIRECT To Refer Sheet Name

May 9, 2014

I have multiple sheets as Name1 ; Name2 ; Name3 and each sheet have a value on cell A1 for any number let say between 0 to 100. On another sheet call SheetName, I have A1=Name1 ; A2=Name2 ; A3=Name3.

I have formula as:

[Code] .....

The INDIRECT formula work to refer each cell A1 in each sheet, however if the sheet name include a space then it won't work anymore. How to make it work with the sheet name with space?

## Using Indirect Function With Comboboxes

Apr 22, 2011

I totally understand how to make the combobox under form controls now but I am not having any success with the indirect function I was using as a list now that I have a combo box. I have attached the current form I am working on that just shows the list function still. How to convert this over to combo boxes with the indirect function?

I attached a second form with the feature I am asking about. It is just lacking the third list that I now have in place. (on the 1st attachment).
