Using OFFSET Function To Return The Value From Another Cell With Row And Column Offset

May 31, 2014

I am having some difficulties using a combination of IF and the OFFSET function to display a range of cell values from another column based on a simple condition. The values I need to display at the destination cells should be offset by 8 columns to the right and "X" rows down from the reference column. The value "X" is to be determined via the IF function to check for the row index number.

For example, if Index value "X" = 8, then display the value of B2 in cell I9. IF X = "9", display B2 in cell I10 etc.

I have attached a sample worksheet that provides some examples.

VBA Search / Replace With Offset 1 Column And Offset 2 Column

Mar 22, 2013

I am trying to work out how to nest offset in a code using search replace. The goal is to find a value from cell A1 (example) and replace the values in the cells next to the cell containing samuel and the cell containing samuel.

A sort of search and remove data tool if you like So for example:

[QUOTE]A1: "samuel" (the search criteria)
Search range is: B1:D400
(for example)
Cell B40 = samuel
C40 = Driver
D40 = year

So, the macro is activated and finds "samuel" in B40 and I would like C40 & D40 replaced with "" The code I'm using is below: (this is just replacing the cell containing the search criteria with "test". I would like to nest offset(0,2) & offset(0,3).Value = ""

Sub Macro1()
Selection.Replace What:=Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Value, Replacement:="test", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
End Sub

Find Value & Return Contents Of Offset Cell

Sep 3, 2006

On Sheet2 I have a table where I want M2 to do the following:

1.) Look at cell A2 where the name "John" is and B2 where the name "smith" is.

2.) Look at sheet1 and look in B2 and C2 for "John" and "smith"

3.) Once it matches the name, place the contents of sheet1, cell I2 into sheet2, cell M2.

So in short, match the name on sheet2 to the name on sheet1 and return the number in I2 to M2 on sheet2.

Maybe combining the persons name in to one column would make it easier?

Find Value & Return Offset Cell Content

Nov 13, 2006

I would like to be able to find all cells in row 2 that are "greater than 0". Then I would like to return the coresponding job number in row 4. I need to create a list of each job with the number of hous spent on that job next to it. I may have 30 different jobs but only 5 jobs that have hours for the specific week.

How I attemted to solve this is to create a table that listed all the hours from the largest number in row 2 to the smallest. Then I found the job number corresponding to that number of hours. The problem with this meathod is that if two jobs have the same amount of hours then the first job number is returned for both values that are the same. See attached example.

Lookup & Return Offset Data By Cell Value

Jan 30, 2008

The main worksheet in my workbook contains lists of suppliers with unique Vendor Numbers, of which there are approximately 4,500 rows. There is another worksheet which holds approximately 6,500 entries I need to bring data from that sheet to the main sheet using the Vendor Number and the information that is held on 4 columns unique to that number.

The information is a classification system that comprises of 4 columns holding a mixture of numbers and text.

Worksheet 1 has the Vendor Number in Column A and the Classification destination starting in Columns Q, R, S & T.

Worksheet 2 once again has the Vender Number in Column A, and the Classification information in Columns C, D, E & F.

What I need guidance on is how to build the formula to copy the information across, or direction into what other method I should be looking at instead.

Excel 2010 :: Dynamic Range - Cell References Changing In OFFSET Function

Apr 12, 2012

I'm working in Excel 2010. I'm trying to create a dynamic range, using the OFFSET function. I've got it working beautifully but as soon as I save it and close the Name Manager the range stops working. When I go back into Name Manager I find all the cell references have changed (from C1:C600 to C1048572:C595 - or some other strange range).

P.S. What it's doing isn't so important as when the cell references are right it works. But just for full info: It's an OFFSET function, starting at A1. It will look at a list of companies and use a Match function to find out how many rows to offset (based on where the first instance of a particular company. And it uses the COUNTIF to make the range the same number of rows as there are entries for that company.

Here is my broken function:

=OFFSET('Map Point'!A1048572,MATCH("Company Name",'Sheet Name'!C1048572:C595)-COUNTIF('Sheet Name'!C1048572:C595,"Company Name"),0,COUNTIF('Sheet Name'!C1048572:C595,"Company Name"))

If Column A Contains Ohio Then Offset By 3 Cell

Mar 17, 2014

I am looking to create a Macro that says: look at all of the data in column E:E and if you find a cell that has the word "Ohio" in the string of information, then offset that cell by 3 to the right and make that cell equal to "4"

Sub Test()

Dim rng As Range, cell As Range
Dim worksh As Worksheet
Set worksh = Worksheets("Axys Layout")
Set rng = Range("E:E")
For Each cell In rng
If InStr(1, cell, "Ohio", 1) Then
cell.Offset(, 3).Value = 4
End If
Next Ecell
End Sub

This is not working and I'm not even sure that I am on the right track!

IF And OFFSET: How To OFFSET Only If Cell Has A Value In It

Oct 26, 2008

I have attached the .xls file.

The basic setup is as follows:

(1) the user inputs a number into cells B2:B6 (arbitrarily shown as 3,4,3 and 2)

(2) the user then inputs a series of values into the respective columns E, G, I or K (corresponding to examples A-D, respectively) with SPACING between each value corresponding to the value entered in B2:B6.

For example, the value "4" is chosen in B3, so values are entered in column G at time = 0,4,8,12,16,20....etc

As another example, the value "3" is chosen in B4, so values are entered into column I at time = 8,11,14,17,20,23...etc, ie. the starting point is not necessarily t = 0.

(3) once the values have been entered as described in point (2) above, a series of results are automatically calculated in columns F,H,J and L.

NOTE: I have omitted the formulae for the calculation and have just entered arbitrary (color coded for clarity only-i don't need color coding!) numbers alongside each inputted value for the 4 examples A-D.

OK, so what I want to extract from the table for each example is the paired time AND result values, and then show them in a new table.

I have used an OFFSET formula (originally suggested by "daddylonglegs") to do this, and the results i GET are shown in columns O-V.

HOWEVER, what i WANT is the output as shown in columns Y-AF.

So as you will notice, there are 2 problems:

(1) Example C in columns S/T: value in cell B4 = 3, but the first value entered in column I does not start at a multiple of 3, so no values are returned in columns S/T because the offset function only uses row 6 as a reference point. What i want is the result shown in columns AC/AD.

How do i write a formula which says, "look down a column, find the first cell that has a value in it, and then offset from that cell/row" ?

(2) Example D in columns U/V: since the first input in column K starts a t = 12 (ie, cell K18), then i have 5 rows of empty space in columns U/V. What i want is the result shown in columns AE/AF.

Lastly, i should add that i am not necessarily stuck on using OFFSET function, since i keep reading that it is quite volatile.

Move Cell One Column Right Offset Rows

Nov 4, 2006

I have sheet1 with four columns. Team, Issue, Discussion and Recommendation. Discussion and Recommendation headings were placed in column B along with the data in the file I was sent. I need to get it back into table format to eventually load into Access. What I'm trying to do is to loop reading down column B. When I find the word “Discussion” (exact format) I need to drop down one row below the word, cut whatever is in the row, move one column to the right, Column C, and two rows up and paste. For example, cell B3 has “Discussion”. I need to drop to B4, cut whatever is in the cell and move to C2 and paste. I also need the same to happen for Recommendation. Find the word, drop down one row, cut whatever is in the cell, move two columns to the right and up four rows. I would like to delete the rows I moved data from, but will do that by hand if it’s too hard to do in a macro.

An example of my data:
Design4. Reuse existing code to extent possible.
DesignNo discussion
DesignEstablish a baseline and work to the plan.
Design5. Delete old code
DesignNo discussion
DesignNo recommendation
Design6. Plan to work without full details.
DesignIncremental design
DesignWork on smaller details first

Conditional Formatting: OFFSET Function To Define A Range Inside A SUM Function

Apr 13, 2007

In Mr Excel's Pod Cast on April 12th, he showed how to use the OFFSET function to define a range inside a SUM function. Then he had Conditional Formatting that would highlight the range that was being summed. Can anyone tell me what the formula would be inside the Conditional Formatting dialog box to get the OFFSET range to have a certain format?

Lookup & Return Offset Value

Oct 30, 2006

I have a large array of cells that go from A1 to A2500. In VB, I need to take a given date that resides in a cell, say 1/6/2006 in C2, and look for a match of it within this large array. When the match is found, I need it to look in the column to the right (IE, from A5 to B5) and assign the value there to a Cell (C1).

Could someone provide an example of the code I was use in VB for this? I'm having a lot of trouble with it.

how to explain this except by showing it, so I explained it as best I could in the attachment. Anyone think they have a solution for this? Let me know if you need more information. Thanks!

the macro will look at the value I entered in cell A1, then find all instances of it in Column A
in every row that A1 matches, if the value in column E is "0", I need the macro to change the value in column E of that row from "0" to (that row's column B * $B$1)

Using ADDRESS And OFFSET To Return A Text Value From Along Row?

Aug 5, 2014

I have a formula that basically work, except is really complicated and slows the whole sheet down and then, for some reason, returns a circular referencing error or something. There must be a better way!

So the back story is that I have a spreadsheet that I'm using to track ~1200 employees, including salary, job title and, where I'm having trouble, reporting line.

Column [R] is the Line Manager (direct manager) and Column [S] is Department Head. Columns [T] - [Y] is "Manager", "Manager +1" (manager's manager), "Manager +2" (manager's manager's Manager), etc up to Manager +5.

'Line Manager' is input manually. 'Manager' = 'Line Manager'. Manager+1 to +5 just vlooks up off the same sheet. This part works fine and will update the whole reporting line if you change the manager.

Department head is where I'm having a problem! Essentially what I'm looking for is for the formula to look at the 5 cells to the right (the manager +# columns) and look for 'Mr Boss' and return one cell to the left since department heads report the the boss. There is one exception, its that some immediate reports of Lucy Lawful also are counted as Department Heads. For this purpose I vlooked up this list of exceptions on another sheet. My formula is this (entered as an array):

=IF(ISTEXT(T5),IF(OR(OFFSET(INDIRECT(ADDRESS(MAX((T5:Y5="Mr Boss")*ROW(T5:Y5)),MAX((T5:Y5="Mr Boss")*COLUMN(T5:Y5)),4)),0,-2,1)=Vlookups!H:H),OFFSET(INDIRECT(ADDRESS(MAX((T5:Y5="Mr Boss")*ROW(T5:Y5)),MAX((T5:Y5="Mr Boss")*COLUMN(T5:Y5)),4)),0,-2,1),OFFSET(INDIRECT(ADDRESS(MAX((T5:Y5="Mr Boss")*ROW(T5:Y5)),MAX((T5:Y5="Mr Boss")*COLUMN(T5:Y5)),4)),0,-1,1)),"")

Below is an example file. In my real file the formula works for everyone, not sure why its not working for half the employee now, but probably cos it's a useless formula.

Lookup Across Columns, Return First & Last Value And Offset

Mar 29, 2008

I have a data range set up in a step chart formation. This means there is a "Name" to the left and a time line of "values" to the right in quarterly increments (3 months at a time). Row 1 has the first month of each quarter and should be used to find the start date. Row 2 has the last month of each quarter and should be used to find the end date.

I need to find the first value from left to right and return the date directly above it in row 1.


I need to find the last value in the step chart and return the date directly above it in row 2

Start Date..A...B...C....D...E...F
End Date....U...V...W...X...Y...Z

Start Date: B
End Date: X
Duration: = B - X

The reason i need this information is to create a Gantt Chart.

Sumif With Offset Function?

Jul 2, 2014

I was wondering if there was a way to use sumif and offset to guide the summing column in the example below. Perhaps I need to add an additional column, then formulate a solution. I want to sum the daily returns for the TSX when the slope is positive (green), and sum the S&P when it is negative. Currently, on signal day, I am summing that day's return, which I don't want to do. I want to sum starting on the next day (blue). The B column switches back and forth from positive to negative, so I will summing different data periods going back 1000 days. I am summing the TSX returns and S&P returns seperately to make it easier. Currently I have in C1=(sumif(b2:b1000,">0",c2:c1000)) Same for D2.
