Using VBA To Insert Formula Into Cells ...

I have a header row, so everything should start at row 2.

If Cell A2 has data, I would like to use VBA to insert the following formula into B2 (this works fine when pasted directly into cell B2):

Insert Formula In Empty Cells
I have a sheet that I put a blank row before every change in column G,

Dim lr As Long, i As Long
lr = Range("G" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For i = lr To 2 Step -1
If Range("G" & i).Value Range("G" & i - 1).Value Then
Rows(i).EntireRow.Insert Shift:=xlShiftDown
End If
Next i

and now I need formulas in columns B and I in those blank rows. I'm happy to roll it in to the above piece of code, or put it in after.

I don't think I can use LastRow to define my range and replace blanks with formula because of the blank rows. I would need more of a "LastRow with only one blank in between populated rows" if such a thing exists.

The formulas will be ="*"&H3&" DWG "&G3 for cell B2 and =I3 for cell I2.

Repeat Insert Row And Formula For Selected Cells
I am in the process of developing a budget template for next year and here is what I want to accomplish through Macro to avoid the tedious mannual manipulation process (hope that's achievable). BTW, I am only an entry-level Macro user who has no background in coding.

I have attached an Excel sample but let me explain:

In each of the expenses tabs (1, 2, and so on (only 1, 2 given in the sample)), I want to be able to select a range of the data cells (A19:Q34 in "Expense 1" and A10:Q28 in "Expense 2") and run this Macro so that:

1. 10 blank rows be inserted between selected data rows

2. A sum created for each month from the four rows below) with different color

3. A Year to Date Actual and To Year End Forecast created based on the VLOOKUP of the "P&L" matching the account code by month

4. Finally grouping of the first 9 rows.

the above is what I have manually created for the first account code in the "expense 1" tab. I have 7-8 expenses groups and about 200 account codes. So mannually creating the above for each expense groups is not that terrible if this will make life easier for Macro.

I would think this is a very typical Macro issue but can't really come up with anything.

The other issue I ran into the VLOOKUP for the YTD Actual and TYE Forecast. It is to look up accont code in the "P&L" tab and match the #s. But the column numbers in the VLOOKUP do not change automatically when I copy across. Thus I have to change mannually, which is really a pain in the butt. I also know I can't copy down because that will change the account code that I want it to match. Because to be able to copy the VLOOKUP formula across the same account code, I need to use the $ to fix the account code. But to copy down I think I need that to be without the $ sign. Any solution on that?

Insert Rows And Copy Formula Cells
I am trying to finish off a form that allows a user to insert a row below the selected cell and copy the formula from the line above if one exists. The code inserts the line but does not copy the formulas if they exist.

Application. ScreenUpdating = False

Dim cRow
Dim j As Long

cRow = ActiveCell.Row

With ActiveCell
End With

For j = 1 To Cells(1, 255).End(xlToLeft).Column
If Cells(cRow, j).HasFormula Then Cells(cRow, j).Copy Cells(cRow + 1, j)

Insert A Row And Add A Formula
I have a spread sheet that I need to insert rows into and then in those same rows, add formulas that display percentages compared to the grand total row. To make it a little more complicated, this spread sheet changes from day to day, so the rows and columns will be different each time. So the code will have to recognize text, then insert the row, then do the formulas in the blank row. The only constant will be that it will always start on Row 5. I have no idea how to start or begin to do this, so I attached a file with a page showing where I am at as an example, and then anther page showing what I want ....

Using VBA To Insert A Formula
I am wanting to use VBA code to insert the formula =IF(B8="","",VLOOKUP(B8,Information!C4:D200,2,FALSE)) into cell B9 (it is merged to form cell B9:B13).

I have the formula copied into cell M4 on sheet 3 and have tried to reference it but can't seem to do it. I am happy either using VBA to reference it or using a VBA code to insert the text into cell B9

How can i get the formula from sheet 3 into cell B9 in Sheet 1, or simply put the text in.

Insert Variable In Formula
I'm using Excel 2000/2002. I have a workbook with 12 sheets named Jan, Feb, etc.
I want to add a new sheet (Report) with formulas in various cells to get data from a cell in a particular sheet.

For instance, in a cell of the new sheet is: =Jan!D64. I want the user to be able to select a month from a drop down list and for the formula to change sheets depending on the month selected. The formula should be: =(sheet name!)D64. I tried playing with INDIRECT, but maybe couldn't get the syntax right. I can't use macros, the Excel is on a server and they are not permitted. The end user is less knowledgeable in Excel than me.

Vba Code To Insert A Formula To Certain Cell
I try to put a formula to a certain cell using this code, but I get application defined or object defined error:

HTML Selection.Cells(1).Offset(0, 5).Formula = "=INDEX(range1;MATCH(""D""&C13;range2;0);MATCH(""S""&D13;range3;0))"

The weird thing is, that if I type the same formula itself to a cell, it works, so the problem shouldn't be with the formula:

HTML =INDEX(range1;MATCH("D"&C13;range2;0);MATCH("S"&D13;range3;0))

On the other hand I tried to replace the formula in my VBA code with simpler one, like this one and that worked aswell:

HTML Selection.Cells(1).Offset(0, 5).Formula = "=a1+a2"

Insert Sum Formula Across Last Cell Of Each Column
I am making a deposit sheet schedule, which has 10-15 batches of deposits that are entered one after the other, vertically. Each deposit entry can be allocated to many different expense accounts, so a deposit will be 500 with 400 to rent, 50 utitilies, etc. So I need multiple summation rows

So, I want to add a sum row beneath each set of deposits.

My problem is that each deposit is a different amount of rows long.

I was thinking of doing something like this:

'totalRow() is each row where the summation formulas will go totalRow(0) is not an actual sum row, but tells me where the first row of data lies.

For Each cell In Range("H" & (totalRow(x - 1) + 1) & "", "J" & (totalRow(x - 1) + 1) & ":N" & (totalRow(x - 1) + 1) & "", "P" & (totalRow(x - 1) + 1) & ":AB" & (totalRow(x - 1) + 1) & "")
cell.Formula = "=sum(Range(""A"" & (totalRow(x - 1) + 1) & "":A"" & (totalRow(x) - 1)"


I don't know how to reference the ranges I want to sum, because I don't know how to increment the reference to the column (i.e. changing A to B to F to G, etc.) with the Range().Formula construct.

I was thinking of using R1C1 somehow but I'm not as familiar and I don't think you can use r1c1 & Range() at the same time.

Variable Columns How To Insert Formula
I have to work on sheets with variable columns.

So for eg Col A Col B Col C Col D are fixed and then there are variable no of columns - Col E Col F and so on....

I have to insert columns after the last colum ie in Col F in this case.

However, the new column (lets call it Col G) will give a value with formula that connects Col E value with Col B (fixed)value. Again Col H (another new col) will also give a value with formula connecting Col H with Col B(fixed).

Easy to do in normal scenario but when I record macro in excel ( i cannot write VB), the variable columns make it difficult.

Insert A Value And Shift Cells Value Down
If I put a length in (G13) such as 4.44 & position from (H13) is 1. Then I want that length of (G13) to move its value (4.44) into (C15) the 1st cell to add to is (C15)

Then Move (C15) to (C16) 11.12 becomes C16
and move (C16) to (C17) and so on all the way down the C column.

When it hits the last joint (C374) position 360. I want a messageBox that says you can not insert anymore.

Basically shift the existing values down untill (C374)
I have only column C to shift the calue from (G13)

I do NOT want to delete rows!

How To Insert A Value In One Cell Into Many Cells
I am currently creating a formula/function to insert a value in once cell into many cells using excel 2003 , for example: cell A1 has a value 100 000 000, and the value is going to be inserted, into B1,C1,D1,E1,F1,G1,H1,I1,J1.Each cell will only have one digit only so B1 will have 1, C1 will have 0, D1 will have 0 and for the rest of the cell will have the same thing instead of whole value.I tried this thing with the MID function and it works as long as the source value cell is 9 digits(filling the cell from the B1toJ1), it became my concern when I changed those value less then 9 digits,say 8 or 5 digits where the cell will receive the value are B1 to F1 if 5 digits or B1 to I1 if 8 digits, the rest of the cells are blank.

Are there any possibilities, solutions if the inserted value can be started from C1 to J1 for 8 digits or F1 to J1 for 5 digits etc (less than 9 digits) instead of B1 to I1 (8 digits) or B1 to F1 for 5 digits?

Formula References Not Updating On Row Insert/Delete
I have a worksheet with many different formulas in many different cells. When I insert or delete a row, there is one formula in one cell that does update to reflect the change in rows. The cell is located several rows below the section where rows are changing. It is a simple formula too. Here is the formula: "= SUM($E$3:E11)*0.09". If I delete more rows that cause the highest row number to be less than 11, this formula updates. If I insert more rows and go beyond row 11, the formula does not update. I have tried using $E$11, $E11, and E$11 to no avail.

ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Range("A1").Select
Else: Range("A1").Select
Exit For

End If


I hope I did that according to the rules. It only returns the result in the first cell that does have a value of "CHANGE". It seem to be going through the entire range of cells, but I'm not getting any results.
