Excel 2007 :: Change Source Workbook For All External References At Same Time But Avoid Browsing?

Jan 7, 2013

Need to create Working order (in Excel 2007) for filling machine in my factory. Working order is changeable from day to day and the deference is product quantity. Product quantity in working order [File - Working order] is changing according to the each sales plan [7-Jan-13, 8-Jan-13] - (File Working order is Linked to the appropriate sales plan in this case - [7-Jan-13]).

Anyway, I need to change the source workbook "sales plan" from [7-Jan-13] to [8-Jan-13] by changing source workbook name in red cell [File - Working order] and not to browsing location?

All source workbooks [sales plan 7-Jan-13, 8-Jan-13]are at the same location in the same folder, only difference is the source workbook names. So, is it possible to change source workbook name (File - Working order - red cell) for all external references (File - Working order - green cells) at the same time, and avoid annoying browsing?

Change MSQuery References

Jan 13, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that queries another spreadsheet, using MSQuery. The query is of a named range on another workbook. What I am trying to do is change the workbook reference, to another similar workbook, with the same range name. MSQuery is not easily letting me do this. I figured there was a way to simply change the file that the created table (in MSQuery) is using. There doesn't seem to be a way to do this.

The named range is "data." This is what the SQL view looks like: ...

Getting Cell References To Change Orientation

May 13, 2007

I would like to reference cells in another tab in my worksheet, but change the orientation.

For example, in Tab 2, I want to make rows A1:A26 equal to columns A1:Z1. Do I have to click back and forth between worksheets 26 times, or is there a way around this?

References Change When Importing Data

Jul 18, 2006

This issue is similar to absolute/relative references, but it's related to the data being referenced, not the cells doing the referencing. If I have a call the references cell A3 then I insert a row above row 3 (making the original A3 cell now A4), my reference automatically changes to A4. How can I get it to stay at A3 no matter what happens?

This may sound like an odd request, but I reference a bunch of cells on a worksheet. This sheet retrieves data from a database which changes regularly. The changes that it receives are not just updated in the cells, but rather the rows are deleted and reinserted changing all my references to this sheet. For example, say I import data and it fills cells A1 to A20 and I make a reference to A15. If I change the data that is imported and the data now only fills cells A1 to A10, the reference to A15 is now set to #REF since it actually clears all cells from A1 to A20 and then reinserts new data.

Vlookup References A Table In Another Workbook

Jul 7, 2007

In trying to construct a Vlookup formula that references a table in another workbook, I find that when I double click on the tab in the source workbook to insert the name, and then complete the formula with the column reference and a False statement, I keep getting an “Invalid” statement in the fx wizard when I try to solve this problem. By entering the name range by typing, I get a “#NAME?” error when I go to the wizard to see what I’ve done wrong.

This issue was addressed in the link that I searched for in the old help files and submit in this question. It seems that the issue was never resolved in that posting and I can’t figure out how to resolve this matter.

A Formula In This Workbook Contains One Or More Invalid References

Feb 29, 2008

I have a rather complicated workbook with many VBA formulas. When I close it down a window displays "A formula in this workbook contains one or more invalid references". verify that your workbook contains a valid path, workbook, range name, and cell reference.

This only happens when I close the workbook. I seem to have all functionality. How can I find the invalid reference.

Formula That References A Cell Where Workbook Is A Variable

May 24, 2007

Say cell C5 contains the name of a project (workbook). eg

C5 = "[Project1]"

In my current workbook, I want to find the value in cell B8 of Sheet1 of the project shown in C5. If I wrote this directly, it would be "='[Project]Sheet1'!B8"
But the name of the project is a variable shown in cell C5 (as explained above). So I need a formula that will find the value in cell B8 of sheet1 of the project shown in C5.

How To Reference Other Sheet Names In Workbook But Keep Cell References The Same

Oct 7, 2013

Within one workbook I have 15 sheets, 13 are for separate divisions within the company, 2 are used to present sums across the 13 sheets. All 13 sheets have identical columns and rows, with unique numbers in each cell. Right now I am manually selecting the cells to reference in my master sheet, =sheet name!cell+sheetname!cell+sheetname!cell - so and and so on. How can I reference the sheet name once, and then all of the cells to SUM? =sheetname!(c4+c14+c24+c34) etc?

This would let me be able to copy the formula from cell to cell, and only have to change the sheet name each time.

2007 Macro Relative References Works On Only One Workbook

Oct 8, 2009

In Excel 2007 I am creating a macro with the "relative references" setting turned on. I want to repeat some tasks like: go to column A, sort, hide columns B thru F, hide columns H & I, return to column A.

Every time I try to create this macro by capturing key strokes, it inserts the workbook / worksheet name in the macro! Kinda defeats the ability to use it in any other workbook.

I am recording the macro in the PERSONAL.XLSX workbook. I have other macros that successfully perform in any workbook they are used in . . . but today I can't create one that doesn't incorporate the name of the original sheet it was recorded in.

Copied Worksheet With Macros Still References Original Workbook

Oct 25, 2007

I have a workbook within which i have a worksheet that contains a lots of macro code (coded by me). As the workbook gets used by various people, i need to copy the worksheet and the macros across to the updated workbook, which doesnt contain the macro worksheet at all.

I have tried to copy it across by clicking on its tab and using the move or copy facility. This copies the sheet across as required. But for some reason, the macros all reference the old workbook. A small bit here for example for some reason opens up the old workbook and then performs the code in the old worksheet:

Sub SelectAll()
For i = 12 To 20
Set curcell = Worksheets("Form Generator").Cells(i, 3)
If curcell = False Then
Cells(i, 3).Value = True
End If
Next i
End Sub

As curcell is equal to worksheets...() i would have expected it to use the local worksheet, ie the one that the macro is attached to. So why is excel proactively hunting out the old workbook and sheet? is the method i used to copy across the sheet with the macros incorrect? If so, how should i go about it?

Should Be Easy, Having Trouble

May 18, 2006

I'm having real trouble selecting a series of rows based on variables for the purpose of cutting them and pasting them elsewhere in the spreadsheet. For example, if this is my spreadsheet

2 I Hate
3 Bill
4 O'Reilly

I want my code to select the range of 2:4, cut them, and paste them elsewhere but I want 2:4 to be variables. For example

Fun = 2
Stuff = 4


But doing "Rows(Fun:Stuff).Select" does not work at all. If you do Rows(Fun).Select, this works to select Row 2, but I can not use the variables to select a range.

VBA Password Crack/Hack - How Easy Is It?

Dec 10, 2008

Ok, so I'm a little cheezed that I've been volun-told to give up an economic model that took me over 8 months to develop to a few investment bankers that will likely sell it to the highest bidder. Of course, with no credit to me.

I've already taken a few of the necessary steps to lock it down.


- Lock/hidden cells along with sheet protection (with password) - to prevent viewers from seeing the formulas I used.

- protect workbook (with password) - to prevent copy/paste of the sheets

- VBA - Tools - VBA Project Properties - Protection - Set password - to prevent viewing of the macros

- Hiding sheets using "Very Hidden" in VBA - to prevent viewing of sheets in general.

I guess my real question is, when this is all said and done, how easy is it for someone to break through all the passwords that I've set up in the workbook? If it's ridiculously easy, how do I prevent it (if at all)? What else can I do?

Easy Navigation Of Multiple Sheets

Oct 2, 2007

I have a workbook with over 100 worksheets (all worksheet tabs are named). Since the tabs are not sorted in a numerical order (they are grouped by departments hence the numerical tab order does not apply), can I search for a particular worksheet tab using a search function? The CTRL F function doesnt allow searching for worksheet tabs. At the moment, I have to go through the tab names in order to find one particular tab.

Changing Hard Coded Column References To Variable References

Oct 22, 2009

I have a number of statements within the Sheet Event Code (Excel 2007). Three times lately I have added a column and had to go back into the code and find all of the references that needed changing to reflect the new column.

I have been working on this for a couple of days and even tried EE, but to no success.

I have read that Defined Names / Constants should be used as often as possible, but even trying that, the VBA code errors out or "hangs up". Even within Bill Jalen's book (VBA and Macros 2007), there is nothing that addresses this, especially using Intersect.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rng As Range

On Error GoTo mEnd
Set rng = Sheets("Log").[F14:F10000]
If Not Intersect(rng, Target) Is Nothing Then
If Target = "" Then
With Sheets("Log")

Easy Way To Copy Columns And The Formulas To A New Sheet?

Nov 3, 2013

I was wondering if there was an easy way to copy columns (headings) and the formulas to a new sheet. I'm currently working on Sheet 1, need to copy everything onto a new sheet so I can keep things separated by week..

Example, Sheet 1 is Week October 30th, would like my 2nd sheet to have same exact headings and formulas which I would then rename to Week Nov. 1st etc..

Also, is there a way that I can then copy the 4 sheets that would make up a month into a new spreadsheet so I can then start December...

Easy Weighted Average For Thousands Of Items

May 29, 2008

I am trying to calculate weighted average cost for a list of thousands of items.

I will try to explain this as best I can.

Column A is item. Column B is Mode. Column C is Volume. Column D is Cost

There are only 2 Transmode Per Item. So each item is pretty much listed twice and I need to calculate the weighted average cost per item.

I know how to use the SUMPRODUCT function to calculate weighted average and could slowly go through the spreadsheet item by item calculating this, but is there a way to do this with some sort of formula? Similar to a Subtotal that would recognize each change item and calculate the Weighted Average at that change.

Easy Navigation To Specific Ranges Or Areas

Jul 1, 2008

I have a spreadsheet that lists values for different grid lines. On top of each set of data, I have labels each line "Line A", etc. I want to put in possibly a pull down menu at the top of the sheet that the user could use to jump to whichever line they were interested in viewing. For example, if the user needs data from Line L, they could select Line L from the drop down menu and the spreadsheet would jump down to that area.

Converting Absolute References To Relative References In Formulas?

I set up formulas to count text characters in a range of cells. I'm tracking attendance and payments for a small yoga studio.

All I need to do is count "Y"s for prepaid attendance and "DI"s for drop-ins. I have the formulas working but they are absolute so inserting a row will break my sheet.
