Variable Cell Relation / Reference In Macro

May 29, 2012

I am building an Excel sheet for my company which keeps track of who has done what with a new client in a step by step process. I have it set up so that once a department clicks complete in a box it automatically emails (VIA a macro) the next person who needs to do the next task. Some tasks are done by the same person no matter what, other tasks are done by a project leader which is different depending on the client.

The problem I'm having is that, within the macro, I need to reference an email address in a cell X cells to the left in the ".TO" line.

So, in Column A I have the CLIENT, Column B The PROJECT LEADER, and Column C The PROJECT LEADERS EMAIL. Then the next 22 Columns are labeled steps with drop down boxes, once the have selected "COMPLETED" it triggers the macro and send the email, just not on the ones when it needs to email the PROJECT LEADER, since it's a variable. Below is the macro, how I can have the ".TO" line in the email reference the email address in Column C to the left of it?

Sub Mail_Workbook_1()
Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object

[Code]....

Addressing A Cell To Change Color In Relation To Other Cell Information.

Dec 23, 2009

I have a Formula question which I can't seem to figure out. I want to set a cell so that when two other cells are above 80 then the cell is green.

If one of the two cells is bellow 80, the cell turns to yellow and if both are bellow 80 then the cell is yellow.

I have counted the number of rows using i. Now I need to pass that variable to the ActiveCell referances shown.

Do While Not Selection. Offset(i, -6) = ""
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "= round(R[i]C[-8],2)&""""&round(R[i]C[-7],2)"

Find Cell And Mark Area In Relation To The Cell

Mar 17, 2009

I'm trying to make a macro, which search for a cell value of "Year". And from that cell, I want to make a range selection down to the first empty cell in row B or the first cell value with "Contracts of difference".

See the attached document I want to mark row 50 to row 55, and Column A to K. However as this range is in different rows each time, I need to make the selection dynamic. And I belive the heading "Year" is the best reference point.

Use A Cell/variable As A Sheet Reference?

Jan 10, 2010

I have a formula that pulls data from another sheet using standard reference of sheetname! I want to build this forumla to use several sheets, and would like to pull the sheet names from other cells.

For example... instead of LEMONS!a1 and LIMES!B2

I would like to use REF1!a1 and REF2!B2

where REF1 and REF2 are pulled from cell Z1 which contains test 'Lemons' and cell Z2 which contains text 'Limes'

How can I do this?

Reference Specific Cell As Variable?

Feb 22, 2012

I have a spread sheet that lists a bunch of dates and expected volume that will be associated with the date. I need to build a macro that will look at the first date expand it out for several months then look at the volume and break that out over a week's time.

That part is simple enough but I need to turn this into a looping statement and I cannot figure out a way to get my macro to always come back to the next date in my list.

Ideally I would like something that is a variable that references the cell I want so I can do something like this.

Code:
MYRANGE = range("B2")
Do
range(MYRANGE).select

[Code]....

This should work for me perfectly if I can just figure out how to make the MYDATE varaible reference a sepecific cell rather than a value or text in the cell.

Using Variable As Cell Reference In Formula

Jul 15, 2014

I'm trying to use a variable as a cell reference in a formula using '&', but can't seem to get it to work. I've looked through the forum, which have examples of how to do this using a range, but not just as a single cell reference. This puts the formula '=VLOOKUP("A & lastrow &"" , Vlookupinput, 2,0)", which obviously gives me an error.

My code is:

Code:
Dim lastrow As String
lastrow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1

ActiveSheet.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 1).Select
ActiveCell.Formula = "=VLOOKUP("A & lastrow &"" , Vlookupinput, 2,0)"

Sum Across Sheets With Variable Cell Reference

Jul 9, 2008

i'm trying to use the sum across sheet function - i.e. - =SUM(Start:End!B1)
Whereby "Start" and "End" are the two relevant sheet names and "B1" is the cell I want added up.

However, can I make B1 variable, whereby there is a cell, say in A1, that contains the string "B1", so that I can make it sum C1 or B20 or anything on the other sheets?

Update Cell In Relation To Input Of Another Cell

Mar 25, 2008

I will try to be as clear and concise as possiable and adhear to the forum rules. I'm not a excel wizz, though I know the bascics and am willing to learn, I have a list in column A, in thise list there are repeated words eg the word sugar is repeated in A23, A45, A56 etc. In column B i have condition format so when i type a 'x' it turns the cell color from red to green.

What i am trying to do is if i enter the 'x' in column B in relation to the word - in this case sugar - it will automatically enter a x in all the other cells in B that has the word in there corresponding A column that matches the orginal 'x'. So for example if the word sugar is repeated in A23, A45 and A56 regaredless of where i enter the 'x' in the b column, weather its B23, B45 or B56 then cells i didnt manually enter the x will auto update in corresondance to the word...

Assign External Cell Reference To Variable In VBA?

Jun 29, 2006

I'd like to assign a value located in a cell in a workbook to a variable in a VBA program in another workbook. I do NOT want to open the workbook that contains the cell with the value. I can't get the hang of referencing an external cell reference. Let's say there's a value in a cell named "nbr" in a workbook named "tst.xls" located in a path "c: est" that I want to assign to a variable "tstnbr" in a VBA program, what is the best way to code that?

Changing Cells Colors In Relation To Cell Input - NOT Conditional Formatting Ques

Mar 22, 2008

I'm a average excel user, i know my way around it and kow common and basic formulee, VB isnt a strong point, but i am willing to attemp anything for this, let me explain

Lets say in colum A I have a list of items, in colum B i have a check box, currently the check box is red, if i tpye a x it turns green due to conditional formating. That works fine...onto the problem...

Lets say in colum A i have my items but they are repeated...eg A1, A145, A166, A122 are all the same item, what i want is regardless of where i place the x each check box under coloum B either gets a X and turns green, or just turns green, i dont mind...

I dont think conditional formatting can cut this, though i may be wrong. Ive tried to use the IF function under condtional formatting but ran into problems...

Circular Reference - Value Of That Variable Changes Depending On The Location Of The Cell

Mar 16, 2009

Excel 2003 > Attached is a small model of what I am trying to accomplish. Cells B2 and B4 contain the same formula a formula that calls a simple function. The function has a variable passed to it and the value of that variable changes depending on the location of the cell. Now, see the function in Module1 it is called CellCalc. If the variable passed = Jim then value = 3. If the variable passed = Jack then value = 8. That is straightforward.

Note also that when Sheet1 is activated, I calculate the cells from left to right and top to bottom that is important. Here is the challenge. If B2 > 1 then I want to add B2 to B4 and set B2 to 1. I can set B4 properly but I cannot reset B2. You can see my 2 attempts that are commented out. Is there some way of accomplishing this or am I simply stuck in a circular reference?

The alternative to this is to write a function that operates externally on these cells. That will work for sure but then the values of the calculations will overwrite the functions in those cells, thereby taking away the dynamic nature of this application.

Variable Cell Reference Based On Minimum Difference

Feb 12, 2010

I have a monitoring system that records a data point with a date/time stamp several times a day at random intervals. For each reading I want to calculate the change compared to the first reading that was more than 24 hours ago, which could be anywhere from 1 to 20 rows above the current one. Hence with the timestamp in col A and the value in col B, the formula in col C, for example cell C20, needs to read something like =B20-Bxyz, where xyz is the row number of the first reading that is more than 24 hours, i.e the first row xyz where A20-Axyz >1.

Auto Generate A Comment Box Based On A Cell Value That Has Variable Reference Cells

Jan 30, 2010

I have been given the following code and it works great. I now need to adapt it to the following scenario: In the attached sheet, the user has to select either, "Suburban" or "Squad" in row 5. If the user selects, "Suburban" I need this script to compare the values they enter in a given row to the value in column "B".
If the user selects, "Squad" I need this script to compare the values they enter in a given row to the value in column "C".

Look at row 48, for example. If the user enters, "Suburban" in cell D5 then the value they enter in cell D48 should equal "1". If it does not equal "1" then it should proceed with the adding of a comment. Conversely, if the user enters, "Squad" in cell D5 then the value the enter in cell D48 should equal "2". If it does not equal "2" then it should proceed with the adding of a comment.

Formatting Cells Dependent On Other Cells Relation To That Cell.

i have just read the thread started by scabertrain regarding "if" conditonal formating, but mines slightly different and i cant make head nor tale of the fomula shown.

So... Monthly budgeting... using a projected outgoing (A1) and an actual outgoing (A2) i want the colour "A2" to change depending on whether i have spent over the budgeted amount, green being underspent, orange for on target and red for over spending....

Example:

I predicted (A1) that i was going to spend 50 on a night out, but my actual spending (A2) was 100, i would like A2 to turn to red.

Reference Variable With Value From Another

Mar 3, 2008

Is there any way of referring to a variable name based on the value of another variable? I have the following code: (where the value for "aux" is defined somewhere else)

Dim aux As Integer
Dim number1 As Integer
Dim number2 As Integer
Dim number3 As Integer

If aux = 1 Then number1 = 1
If aux = 2 Then number2 = 1
If aux = 3 Then number3 = 1

The variables "number1", "number2" and "number3" are always filled with the same value ("1"). Is there any way of writing the "If-part" of the code in only one line? I was thinking that maybe there is a way of calling "number1", "number2" or "number3" depending on the variable "aux". For instance writing something similar to: number + aux = 1

Reference Cell In Macro Using Row & Column Numbers From Cell

I'm trying to reference a location on a spreadsheet in a macro by using the values in two cells (the idea is to then paste to this location):

D2 is 17 (the row)
B4 is 2 (the column)

therefore the location is B17 (R17C2), but can I get this to work...? The values in these cells can change depending on selections made which is why I want to use the cell references rather than the absolute!

Automatically Color Cells In Relation To Data Entered

Aug 30, 2013

how to do basic formulas in Excel but I are hoping that there is a macro or a VBA or something that can be made which might work for what i need.

I have decided to start a small tour shop (I make the reservations for guests with a hotel in the area and take them on tours of our region) and are looking to make a booking sheet for each month. Nothing complicated just simple. see the attached .xlsx file.

I was wondering if there is a way that when the fields in column A & B are filled in if it could automatically color the corresponding dates in for the same row in the calendar area? like I have manually done on sheet "October 2013"

Relative Cell Reference In Macro

I have recorded macros in the attached file to highlight cells that contain matching initials by using conditional formatting on the first cell and copying it to the remaining cells. The problem is that if rows are inserted above that change the first cell reference then the macro no longer works properly. Is there a way to use a relative cell reference within the macro? The macro buttons are in cells A4 to A13. I have no VB experience and created the macros by recording keystrokes and using tips found in this forum.
