I have a column J that is named Premium. If I use the function =INT(Premium) in K4 then it returns the integer for the value in J4. If I do the same thing with a UDF then the function argument receives all the values in column J. The author of the function says this is how UDFs work by design. Is there a way to use defined names with UDFs and have it work the way it does with built in functions?
Trying to use a Defined Name as the cell reference in VBA. The idea is to change the value of a couple of other cells base on the value of the cell "FreightRow". I am starting with a Message box just to make sure the code was reading the cell reference.
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) Dim FR As Range Set FR = ThisWorkbook.Names("FreightRow").RefersTo If FR = 3 Then MsgBox ("Help") End If End Sub
I use Vlookup's a lot so i define my range with specific names a lot. But when i want to clear the range names via Insert>Name>Define>"Select the range name then click delete. but instead of clicking on each range name, i would like to to delete all.
I can create a macro to do this but some days i use different range names that other days so the below will not work exactly.
I am currently overhauling a massive workbook, that previously relied on an absurd amount of named ranges in order to run vlookups. I no longer need these named ranges and would like to delete them to unclog the workbook. Currently I only see a way to delete them one by one. Is there a way to mass delete all of them?
I have several SumIf formulas that references a Cell in a Main Reference Tab. This is useful to me as I have over 100 tabs of data points and having a reference cell with that text is easier to change one time vs 100 times.
My question is this: Will Defined Names be "faster" than using a reference cell? With over 100 tabs, there's a lot of formulas and I'm looking for a faster way to get the same output without Excel Memory overload.
This thread is related to this thread. Offset, Match, Max Formula In the Insert - Name - Define window:
If one wants to copy a formula from the "Refers to" box and the formula extends past the right side of the box, how does one use "select all" or mark the whole formula from beginning to end so it can be copied without messing up the formula. At the moment, when I try this, it changes the formula to include the active cell of the worksheet that's open when I use the Ctrl + c etc. I have tried Ctrl + Ins and Ctrl + a and Ctrl + c. None of these are working for me.
I have a situation where I copy a worksheet to further on in the same workbook (essentially, using it as a template to create new sheets). I have certain cells that contain references to named ranges, e.g. on NewSheet1, cell $A$1 contains =StudyNo. Unfortunately, it shows as #NAME?. But, if I go to the formula bar and press enter, it resolves the name properly. I thougt maybe that automatic calculation was on manual but it is not. Why is this happening and what can I do to resolve it.
I am looking to create a formula which sums the values associated with several defined names. For example, I have a workbook with the following defined names SalesPerson1Total, SalesPerson2Total, etc. and these amounts are all sourced from multiple tabs. The amount of defined names (i.e. 'SalesPersons') is variable, therefore, I want the formula to read Sum the values of all defined names which are named with the following convention 'SalesPerson(X)Total'.
I have created 500+ defined names that refer to worksheets that do not exist (yet). When I add the previously nonexistent worksheets, the defined names that refer to them are not "live" and do not work in functions where that name is used. If you go into the defined names and click on the ones that refer to the now existent worksheet, they start to work, but I was hoping there was a way around this step (e.g. a simple macro that says "update all defined names").
I created all the names so that the person who will eventually be using this will only have to add an appropriately named worksheet and put the data in...then everything will automatically work. I do not think adding names is difficult, but the person who will be using this does, so I want to avoid that person mucking around in my names.
I'm trying to simplify a spreadsheet i've been given by defining names for certain values. I'm using Excel 2013. Is there any way to have all of the newly defined names I've created for cells automatically be inserted into all of the formulas that exist in the spreadsheet?
Old formula in one sheet of a workbook looks up a cell in another sheet with the value of ='sheet1!A1
I've given the value of cell A1 in Sheet1 a name of dgwd.
How do I get every formula in the workbook that references 'sheet1!A1 to change the value within that formula to dgwd?
Although I'm able to write UDFs and distribute addins, one thing I've found is that if you use a UDF formula on a sheet on one machine, save it, then open it on another, Excel doesn't automatically look in the local .xla for the formula. In fact it tries to find it on the network (expecting to locate the originating user's machine, I suspect) and then throw a strop....
I know this is a mess - I am just learning how to create UDFs. I am trying to extract first and last name from an email address is this format - John.Smith@abc.com. This is what I have and of course it does not respond . .
I have a addin that contains user defined functions. I am using the MacroOptions command to assign the functions to categories. The addin loads without any problem in Excel 2003. In Excel 2002 and Excel 2007 Beta, if I open Excel and load the addin using the menu the addin loads OK. But when I try to open Excel with the addin already installed I get the following error message: Run-time error '1004': Method 'MacroOptions' of object'_Application' failed. how to aviod this error message in Excel 2002 and Excel 2007 Beta?
When I Step through (Using the f8 Key) the below code -- Comments Explain my problem/Question
Sub SetUpTable() Worksheets("Sheet1").Activate Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual ' Without entering this line the Macro in the next line or two), jumps to and begins running a UDF in a VBE ADDIN 'Module marked as Volitile For TheYear = 1 To 5 Cells(1, TheYear + 1).Value = 1990 + TheYear
Where Param is the address of an array with argument descriptions, as text (like "A1:A4").
If I run the xlsm file, it works fine.
But if I load the xlam file in the add-ins dialog, the path to the Help file seems to be lost; I get directed to Excel's general online Help. The explanation of the arguments still work. Probably because they are already in the registry. But shouldn't the Help path be held in the registry as well?
I have been asked to look at moving a very large set of pricing sheets from Excel 2000 to Excel 2003. In the progress of this I have found that the functionality for a UDF in a cell to change/recalculate any other cells has been removed in Excel XP, whereas it was available in Excel 2000. The amount of work required to refactor the code is very large, and before starting on it it would be good to find out if there is a workaround.
The Sheet works in the following way:-User enters values, clicks a button to run a Macro,-Macro calculates all the ranges required to return a price-In many of the cells it is calculating are Functions which go and look at a large number of cells to calculate the price, sometimes writing to other Cells and sometimes having to recalculate other cells-As it is such a large sheet we can't simply calculate all cells before we tell it to price, as they are not all needed and so aren't calculated unless needed for performance reasons.It would be a lot of work to move the functionality from the Functions to the initial macro call, though this would solve the problem. Is there any other workaround?Macro security is set to low.The Errors I receive are the following:The UDF will hit a line like Range("DataRange").Calculate and this will raise a "Calculate method of Range class Failed" error. If it hits a line like Range("DataRange").Value = 1 this will raise a "Application-defined or object-defined error"If it hits a line like ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="This_Name", RefersToR1C1:="=Sheet1!R8C2" then it also raise a "Application-defined or object-defined error".Any of these run from a UDF in Excel 2000 works.I have a sample workbook if this isn't clear
Trying to convert an Excel 2003 macro to work in Excel 2007.
The problem line is
Dim MyDataObject As DataObject
I suspect the problem is a Missing Reference, but I cannot figure out which one. I have the same ones (in 2007) as 2003 except for one which is not showing
Microsoft Forms 2.0 Object Library
Is this the one it needs? It is called something else in 2007?
The ones I do have ticked are
Visual Basic For Applications Microsoft Excel 12.0 Object Library OLE Automation Microsoft Office 12.0 Object Library Microsoft ADO Ext. 2.8 for DDL and Security Microsoft DAO 3.6 Object Library Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.8 Library Microsoft Scripting Runtime Microsoft XML v2.6
the first time font.bold is set to true, it completes w/o error. The bolded line returns 'application defined or object defined error 1004'. Ive tried activating the new sheet immediately before setting bold (like the first time it gets set) but it still errors.
