Set file = Range("rgFileToBeChecked")
'this sets "file" as the full path

Reference Another Workbook In Formula

Nov 11, 2009

I am having trouble inserting a cell reference into a formula. I have a spreadseet that uses data from another workbook. The workbook name changes monthly, so i'd like to be able to place the workbook name in a cell and have the formulas in the spreadsheet use that cell to get the name of the workbook to get the data from. So:

if, for eg, the formula in my spreadsheet is ='[test data file.xlsx]Sheet1'!$B$4+'[test data file.xlsx]Sheet1'!$B$6

I would like to be able to enter test dta file.xlsx into cell A2 of my spreadsheet and replace a reference to A2 into the formulas. I've tried several ways, but can't seem to get it to work.

Reference Another Workbook In A Formula

May 15, 2007

I have a formula that calculates data from the workbook that the formula is in. I need it to do the same calculations only pull the data from another workbook. Here is a sample formula:

= SUM(X1504 + SUMPRODUCT((H1:H394=73)*(U1:U394="NVLIV"),S1:S394))

Would I do something to the nature of:

=SUM(C:/sample.xls[Sheet1$x1504] + SUMPROD...etc...?

Basically how do you reference another workbook that is closed?

Excel 2007 :: Not Being Allowed To Input Formula With Reference To Another Workbook

I am having trouble making any formula references between 2 different workbooks.

For example, I being typing out my VLOOKUP function on 1 sheet, as soon as I get the table argument, I switch over to the other workbook in which the table is, and I no longer have the VLOOPKUP function active.

I am having this problem for any formula in which I am trying to reference this workbook.

I have ensured they are both saved as Excel workbook documents. I am using Excel 2007

Formula Copy & Paste: Reference Other Worksheets Within The Workbook, Are Copied Over As Links

Apr 28, 2007

I'm trying to perform a copy & paste operation by hand which to me should be easy in theory. I have a worksheet whose formulas have been corrupted. I have a backup of this sheet- I'd like to copy the backup sheet into the workbook. The problem is that the formulas, which reference other worksheets within the workbook, are copied over as links to the backup workbook instead of the new workbook they are being copied too. This seems simple, but how do I copy the worksheet and the references without having to go through all of the references by hand to only apply to the local book.

Stop Formula Column Reference Changing On Insert But Not Row Reference

Mar 6, 2008

A 'Days Attended' cell (N8) and a 'Days Absent' cell (O8). N8 needs to count the number of "Present" values there are on another worksheet. The other worksheet has dates across the top and names down the side.

When i use
=COUNTIF("Attendance!C9:Z9", "Present"),
and the next date comes along the formula changes to
=COUNTIF("Attendance!D9:AA9", "Present")

ie. the reference moves a column across - the new date's absent or present is not counted. Using =COUNTIF(INDIRECT("Attendance!C9:Z9"), "Present"). is no good because when i add a new name i need the row reference to move down as a row is inserted. ie. both person's formulas count the same row. So, my question: I need the columns to stay the same - C:Z (leyway for future dates) and the rows to change as i insert or delete people from the system.

Reference A Source Workbook By Having The Title In Destination Workbook?

Jun 6, 2014

I want see if it's possible to take the name of the source workbook and put it in a cell in my destination workbook and then use that as the reference in formulas. The source document title includes a date that changes yearly, or in some instances changes entirely, and I want to keep the formulas in the destination workbook intact. I don't want to have to go to every instance where I have used the source workbook and change the title. Instead I would like to copy the source workbook title, paste it into the destination in the same cell and have that propogate the needed changes into the destination workbook formulas.

Changing Workbook Formulas To Reference New Workbook Name

Aug 6, 2012

I have a workbook "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy" and another workbook "Weekly Field Report $$$-Master" The "Weekly Field Report $$$-Master" workbook has all the formulas that pull data from the "Weekly Field Reports-Master Copy" workbook and populates a financial report of that week's field unit production.

When I save the "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy" workbook to a new name "Weekly Field Report Job #1" and then save the "Weekly Field Report $$$-Master Copy" workbook to a new name "Weekly Field Report $$$-Job #1" is there a way to automatically change the formulas in the "Weekly Field Report $$$-Job #1" workbook to now pull data from the "Weekly Field Report Job #1" workbook instead of the "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy" workbook???

Currently I am manually changing the formulas in the new workbook "Weekly Field Report $$$-Job #1" to reference the data in the new workbook "Weekly Field Report Job #1". Otherwise the formulas pull the data from the "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy".

Cell Reference :: Formula To Reference New Cells

Feb 15, 2010

I have lets say 12 months of data. I have formulas that reference the latest 6 months. When I insert a new column to input a new month, how can I make the formulas include the new months without manually updating them.

EXAMPLE:

12 months of data exist in cells B3:M3 going from B3(oldest) to M3(newest). Formulas reference latest 6 months of data in cells H3:M3. When a new month hits, I insert a column after column M.I would like the formulas to now reference cells I3:N3 which is now the newest 6 months.

Reference To Another Workbook

Jan 12, 2007

I made a VLOOKUP formula referring to another workbook. The workbook name was 1099.XLS and there was only one worksheet in it, also called 1099.

So the reference I used was [1099.XLS]1099! but I have since realised that Excel changes that as I enter it, to '1099'!

What I would like to know is, is this a one-off action by Exel, and why? Have I used the correct reference in general -
[workbookname.XLS]worksheetname!

and did Excel's actions come about because there was only one worksheet, or because the worksheetname was the same as the workbookname, or what?

How To Reference UDF From Workbook That Has Space In Its Name

Aug 8, 2012

I have a workbook called "udf test.xlsm" with an "age" udf. How do I reference this from another workbook? If I replace the space with an underscore in the workbook name then I can call it like so:

=udf_test.xlsm!age(A1)

but with a space, it doesn't work. I tried this:
='udf test.xlsm'!age(A1)
and this
='[udf test.xlsm]'!age(A1)

but I get "Invalid Reference" errors.

VBA / Dynamic Workbook Name Reference

Feb 6, 2014

I am using:

Code:
Dim Aname As String
Aname = ActiveWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range("D2").Value & "Pricing"
Workbooks.Add
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=Aname & ".xls"

to create a new workbook. I need to copy 2 columns from the original workbook/worksheet to the one being created though. I can get the the original easy enough, but then getting back to the newly created book is proving difficult.

(the 2 columns being copied are filtered to what is needed and I have used the below to copy it, yes I know that is 3 rows but I couldnt get it to copy just E and G at the same time to the lastrow without including F)

Code:
LastRow = .Cells(.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
With .Range("E2:G" & LastRow)
.Select.copy
End With

Cell Reference For Workbook Name

I am trying to write a formula that will pick the data out of a closed workbook.

Indirect works but it doesnt help because the workbook needs to be open and there are literaly hundreds of workbooks to sort thru.

Is there a way other than find and replace to have a formula pull data from a specific cell in another workbook, based on say cell A1 or A110?

Reference Workbook Without Knowing Name

Jun 26, 2007

I have a master workbook, meeting1.xls which is used on a daily basis. All of the macros saved in this workbook naturally refer to Windows("Meeting1.xls").Activate.

However, I want to be able to open Meeting1.xls save it as a new name (for today's details) and then populate it.....as well as have the Macros pick up that new file name (rather than always looking for Meeting1.xls.)

I've tried saving Meeting1 as a template file and that didn't seem to work either. When I save it as a new name, the macro always searches for the original name.

VBA Workbook Reference Via Variable

Feb 18, 2008

Ive just finished writing a macro that copies data from different parts of one workbook into a new workbook. However after doing all that my boss now informs me that the first workbook will be renamed regularly.

Is there a way adding a reference to a workbook that is not dependant on the name? Possibly declare it as a variable at the beginning or something? The indexing is not possible either as they might have multiple Spreadsheets open at any one time.

Change Formula Cell Reference Based On Another Cell Reference

Jan 8, 2012

How do I change a formula cell reference based on another cell's reference? I'm building a schedule that looks to a task's trigger and adds days based on that relationship. All entries in column "A" will be text and all cells in "B" will be the simple formula "=A2" or "=A3". Due date is calculated by adding the value in "C" to the preceding date in column "D". In the spreadsheet below, the trigger for "Budget set" is "Specs written" with 3 days added to the previous due date.

________A________________B_____________C_________D
1 Task___________Trigger_____________Days_____Due Date
2 Design begins__Proj OK______________10____10-Jan
3 Specs written__Design begins (A2)____5____15-Jan (D2+C3)
4 Budget set_____Specs written (A3)____3____18-Jan (D3+C4)

If the trigger for A4, "Budget set", changed from A3 to A2, is there a way that the formula that determines the due date in D4 could read the trigger cell reference in B4 so that the value in the corresponding row in column "C" is added in the date column?

How To Reference Worksheets Inside Workbook

Jul 3, 2013

I do a payroll workbook for my small company. Each sheet inside the workbook is a month. Each sheet totals the monthly labor categories. I would like to keep a "year to date" total on each employee and therefore would have to reference each sheet.

Setting up a formula (or tell me where to look) on how to total worksheets inside a workbook?

Example: the workbook contains a total of 12 sheets, representing the 12 months of the year. Add "cell reference" from sheet 1 to sheet 2 to sheet 3 to reach a total, then when sheet 4 is completed it contains the cumulative totals of all 4 sheets, etc., etc. Where I can look at this "year to date total" and compare to last years "year to date total".
