Using Cell References In File Paths For Formulas To Create Dynamic Formulas

Dec 3, 2013

I am using a lot of linked reports that have to be rewritten each month. For example smaller formulas look like this:

=('S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$228*2)+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$262+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$292

What I want to do is extract the file path from the above formula and make it a composite of several cell references.

So what I need is to have a cell where they can change the month and another where we can change the year. So I set up several named cells that look like this:

_MONTH =11 November
_YEAR =2013
_JOBCARD ='S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING
_PATH =_JOBCARD & _YEAR &"" &_MONTH

I tried several versions, I am hoping for something like this:

=('_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B$228*2)+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B$262+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B$292

Converting Formulas To Relative/absolute References With Formulas Referencing Other Sheets

Dec 15, 2008

I've found a few macros that will automate changing cell references from absolute to relative and they work great. However, when I run the macros on formulas that have references to another worksheet or workbook, the macro will not work correctly.

Copy Formulas With Cell References

Jan 12, 2009

I have a formula that references data on another spreadsheet with multiple worksheets. I have a new worksheet for each month (Jan, Feb, Mar, ...).

How can I copy formulas in series that keep the cell references the same, but change to the appropriate month. So for the forumula below, I want to fill a series down in a column to represent each month.

Right now I have to go in and edit it to change the month to the next month (i.e. change Jan to Feb.)

An example of the formula is below. In this case, I would want to fill the series down a column and have the months update in series but keep the cell reference the same.

=SUM('[New 2008 sales report linked.xls]Jan'!$M$19,'[New 2008 sales report linked.xls]Jan'!$N$19,'[New 2008 sales report linked.xls]Jan'!$Q$19,'[New 2008 sales report linked.xls]Jan'!$L$47,'[New 2008 sales report linked.xls]Jan'!$K$47,'[New 2008 sales report linked.xls]Jan'!$S$47)

Copy Formulas While Keeping Cell References

Sep 1, 2009

I need to copy a bunch of cells that contain formulas without altering the cell references. I know I could change each formula to contain absolute cell references, then copy and paste special with formulas, but this is alot of work, and following that I'd need to change the references back again from absolute to relative in both locations. So, is there a way to quickly copy and paste formulas in multiple cells without altering the cell references?

Using Cell Values As Partial Spreadsheet References In Formulas

Feb 21, 2014

I've attached a sample document of my data layout. On the Compare tab, I'd like to build a sumif formula that takes the data in column B and uses it to reference the other tabs without having to use a large nested IF statement. For example, on the Compare tab, in cell C2, the formula will know to look at the "JAN MONTH" tab because B2 says "JAN", then the rest of the sumif would be looking at the data in column A and matching it with the data in column A in the correct tab.

Converting Absolute References To Relative References In Formulas?

Feb 10, 2014

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.

=COUNTIF(E14:Z14,"*Y*")
=COUNTIF(E11:Z11,"*DI*")

How Do I Create Multiple Formulas In One Cell

Dec 29, 2009

I have a list of numbers that I want to identify the highest and second highest numbers and create a mathematic result.

For example.
I lets say I have 15 stocks "B19:P19" I have X amount of money to invest "Q21" I want to invest 85% of Q21 in the highest of B19:P19 and 15% in the second highest. If there are 2 highest that are tied I want to split the 85% of Q21. SO far I have been able to identify the Highest and show it at 85% of Q21 with this =IF(B19=(MAX(B19:P19)),(Q21*0.85)) but I am not sure how to get the rest of it to do what I want.

Copy Formulas With References Changing

Aug 28, 2007

I am trying to do a simple copy and paste of number of cells A42:H76 to another sheet (in the same workbook) and have all the references stay when pasting to the new sheet. Instead when I paste it I get #Ref and the cell formulas no longer point to the right cell (they are all off by the same number because I did not paste the cells on the same row/column on the new sheet). Also, they don't refer to the older sheet where I want them to refer to.

Increase All Formulas Row/Column References

Jun 5, 2008

I need a script that will look for all the formulas in a sheet and increase them by a digit.

Lets say one that particular formula is =(A1-A2)/A2*100

I need the macro to change this to =(B1-B2)/B2*100

I have already programmed in a Find/Replace command, but realised that this would only work one time only. I need generic code that will bump them up each time rather than having to hard code the Find/Replace command for every single cell in the book.

Circular References - Formulas Relating To Other Sheets

Jun 21, 2013

I am trying to make a formula use an IF statement to identify different cells on a different sheet to pull raw data from.

However I've never tried formulas involving multiple sheets before.

This is the formula i get a circular reference for =IF('Store Input'!I6:J6=Lewis,(('Store Input'!C6:D6/1.2)/100*0.75))

I am not entirely sure what im doing thats causing confusion but ill explain the desired effect.

If a Cell has a value of "Name" then take data from cell "X" and do calculation /1.2 /100 *0.75 on a separate sheet.

Further more i want it to apply to multiple cell possibilities. so like the one above except repeated on different cells.

So as well as the above, i want it to perform the same operation for a set of cells further to its right and so and so forth.

Compare Formulas Ignoring Range References

Dec 20, 2006

I would like to rotate a Line Chart 90 degrees. I tried using an XY scatter chart but my Y-axis would be time values which are somewhat random but increasing. I would like to keep the spacing between plot points consistent (Y-axis spacing). I could simply use a number list for my Y-values to get consistent spacing but then I lose the time information. I donít necessarily need the time value on the Y-axis if I could get the information to display when mousing over the plot point. Any ideas on how I could accomplish this?

Copy Formulas Without Changing Range References

Feb 5, 2008

I have a large workbook with LOTS of large formulas. However they dont contain $ characters before the ranges as I haven't needed to manipulate them til now. Now I am changing the sheet and I cant seem to move or copy these cells without the ranges whithin the formulas changing! Is there a way to do this? If not is there a way in VBA that I can check through selected cellls and enter a $ before all the ranges?

Change File Path In Formulas For Every Cell In A Sheet

Oct 9, 2009

I have a master workbook that is referencing data from several other workbooks whose file names are based on the years data was taken. In the master work book on any given sheet, I would like to be able change the data being used in the formula calculations by simply changing the year value in a single cell. By changing the date value, the formulas are directed from one data workbook to another.

e.g. in the master workbook in Sheet1, if you enter 2008 into cell A1, all of the formulas in Sheet1 now pull values from 2008.xls; if 2008 was replaced with 2009 in cell A1 on Sheet1 of the master workbook, then all of the formulas on Sheet1 would now pull values from 2009.xls.As I am completely new to VBA (bought my first book last night), I am looking for any help that is out there. I am not entirely new to programming (used C++ to write numerical simulations) but I have zero experience writing macros and the like.

References By Using Paths To Other Workbooks

Aug 11, 2009

is it possible to use references and concatenate them together that they are still references?

i have in:

file1.xls
sheetX:
A1: 'C:Infonic[file2.xls]sheet2'

file2.xls
sheetY:
A1: test

what i need is in sheet2 of file1

the value of file2.xls!sheetY!A1 = test
the problem is that i need to use the path to file2!sheet2 of the cell A1 in sheetX

is it possible to use sheetXA1 together with sheetYA1 as reference in sheet 2 so that i get back test as value.

Dynamic Filter-Dependant Formulas?

Feb 8, 2010

I have a Filter set up across a few columns of data. Lets say one of the columns is called "Hours", and another is called "User". There is another cell called "Totals" outside of the Filter.

What I would like to have is a self-updating Totals cell that will Sum the total number of Hours for whatever the Filter is currently showing.

Examples:

If I set the Filter to show only UserA's data, the Totals cell will Sum the Hours for UserA.

If I set the Filter to show All Users with Hours greater than 2, the Totals cell will Sum all the Hours greater than 2.

If I set the Filter to show UserB and UserC and Hours less than 5...well you get the idea.

Can I write a function that loops through the data that meets the Filter's criteria? Do I need to create a macro to update the Totals cell each time the Filter is changed? Is there an easier way that I don't know about?

Adding Many Dynamic Formulas Into Name Manager?

Sep 20, 2013

I have made a table with many dynamic formulas that I want to import into the Name Manager. It has the names in Column A and the "Refers to" formulas in Column B. Unfortunately, when highlighting the cells and using the "Create from Selection" feature of Excel 2010 it puts the Column B cell address in the "Refers to" field, not the actual formula. Is there another way to get these formulas into the "Refers to" field without typing them all out or coping and pasting them individually?

Cell Values As File Paths

Feb 20, 2007

I have a file which I am using at work to compile production shift reports. I have created a sheet called Live Report and created a macro called 'New Day' that copies the entire sheet and renames it as yesterdays date (using a separate sheet called Data with a =today()-1 and text formulas thus the sheet tab for 14/2/07 is called 14 Feb) it then clears certain cells on the Live Report sheet so that information can be entered again.

My problem is that I want to now create a table of values that compiles values from each sheet for the month. What I wanted to do was have the names of all possible sheet tabs listed in column A and then as we get to each date the links will become active for the 20 or so values on each sheet. So each row will have the sheet tab name in column A and then columns B to R will have links to that sheet. As I am lazy and the linked values will always be in the same location I just wanted to drag the first row of links down the table using the value in Column A as part of the filepath/link.

My problem is no matter how much I try I can't use cell values in filepaths. If this is impossible I would like help with a macro that can find the right row in the table based on todays date and copy certain information.

Formulas To Hide Partial Concatenate Data And Determining Two Other Formulas

Dec 11, 2013

I'm trying to automate creating certain keyword combinations I need, based off of the values I input into reference cells in columns A - E; the goal is to compile a list of keywords which I will then use to track my rankings in search engines.

I'm looking to only output 500 keywords, so some of the cells in columns A, B, C & E will not contain data (column D will always have a primary Geo-target listed). This results in some of the concatenate formulas I've created outputting partial data (i.e. if there is no data in cell A10, and cell D2 contains the word "Knoxville", then cell I10 will output the data, "Knoxville "). How can I setup conditioning formatting or a formula so that these auto-generated cells appear blank if one of the reference cells has no data within it?The reason why I need the above to work is because I want to setup a formula that automatically counts the # of keyword combinations created by the data entered into any of the reference cells. With the partial combinations being listed, it skews my data. Which leads me to my next question: what is the best formula for counting the # of cells containing a full keyword combination from any of the cells listed in columns G - O (minus the data in the header cells; i.e. G1, H1, etc...)?Lastly, is there a formula I could use that would then aggregate all of the full keyword combinations within the "Complete Keyword List" column (column P)?

Excel 2007 :: Formulas In Cells Not Being Recognized As Formulas?

Jan 10, 2013

I am running Excel 2007 on Windows Vista Business 32 bit. Recently I have noticed that if I enter a formula into an empty, unsused cell, it is recognized as a formula. If I modify that formula, it is then recognized as text and does not work as a formula. The only way I can get the cell to recognize a formula is to delete the cell and start over. This same scenario does not occur on previously stored workbooks. I have checked all of the flags that I know about, including the Options function.

Dynamic SumIF Formulas That Reference Changing Codes

Dec 1, 2007

I have a list of codes from which I'm trying to extract all unique entries.

For example, col A has 001, 001, 002, 003, 003, 003, 004, ...

I'm trying to create a report template with formulas that reference col A and return a single unique entry for each code so that the new column has only 001, 002, 003, 004.

Essentially, the codes reference customers. A customer can have multiple purchases -- but I'm trying to create a report in which I can utilize SumIf formulas to Sum the purchases for each customer and represent those purchases on a single line per customer code.

The catch is that the purchases change monthly (i.e., next month the purchases may be 001, 002, 002, 002, 004) so my report template needs to have the flexibility to adapt without me rewriting the SumIf formulas and return SumIf results for only customers 001, 002, 004. Whereas in the prior month, the report returned SumIf results for customers 001, 002, 003, 004.

Dynamic Formulas- List Of Serial Numbers In A Column

May 26, 2006

i have a list of serial numbers in a column, say column a, for example, and i have corresponding data in columns to the right of this, say just column B for example- I also have a header on column B which counts the data in column b. (just a COUNTA, counting occurences of 'x' )

my issue is this: i need to limit the range of the COUNTA dynamically- by the number of serial numbers in column A. for example: if i have 10 serial numbers, i want my COUNTA range to be B1:B10 (excluding header) and... i need this to be a built-in formula, NOT a VBA macro. i need it to update automatically, as soon as another serial number is entered. i've tried using references to named ranges and all sorts of language tricks, and i cant seem to get it to work. (such as:

' =counta(b1:namedrange1)

i'm going to have to do the same thing with COUNTIF's, so if that is also easily explainable,

Adjust Dynamic Range To Ignore Formulas In Blank Cells?

May 19, 2014

Attached is a spreadsheet I am working on that has a series of graphs with defined dynamic ranges. I am having 2 separate issues on 2 different tabs.

1) Ranges named AirRecBra4 (and Bra10); AirComBra4 (and Bra10); AirRemBra4 (and Bra10) are not pulling in data from the correct data points. Instead of using the last 26 data point, they are currently beginning at the top of the column (currently cells 11 to 36 is their respective columns). The formulas are copy and pasted from working offset ranges in the same tab but are reading differently.

2) On the last 6 tabs beginning with Stn Backlog, I want to have defined formulas beginning in cell B119 and continuing downward to at least F200. However, when I add the formulas, the offset reads the formulas as being data and adjusts for that. I do not know how to adjust the dynamic range to ignore formulas in blank cells.

Segment 1
Story A 5:00 minutes
Story B 4:30 minutes
Story C 3:00 minutes

What I need is Segment Total (A+B+C) in one cell and Remaining time (from total 59 minutes) in another. I know this may seem silly for most of you, but I cannot get the cells to format properly at all.

How To Create Patterns When Copying / Pasting Formulas

Jan 24, 2012

I was wondering if there was a way to create patterns when copying and pasting formulas?

For example, here is what I want to do right now:

=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I650)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I649)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I648)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I647)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I646)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I645)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I644)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I643)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I642)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I641)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I640)

In other words, have a pattern in the formula?

Or something like this, but filling out cells horizontally.

=A1/A100
=A1/A99
=A1/A98
=A1/A97
=A1/A96
=A1/A95
etc...

Or:

=A1*A1
=A1*A2
=A1*A4
=A1*A8
=A1*A16
=A1*A32
=A1*A64
etc...
