Variable To Refer To A Worksheet.CodeName

Jan 22, 2009

This is a simplified version of an earlier, long winded post that clouded my actual question.
Can I use a variable to refer to a worksheet by its CodeName? For example, let's assume I have several worksheets, with CodeNames of mySheet1, mySheet2, mySheet3, and so on. I understand that I can refer to them directly,

mySheet1.Range(myRangeName).value = someValue
mySheet2.Range(myRangeName).value = someValue
mySheet3.Range(myRangeName).value = someValue
but what if I want to do this using a loop? Is it possible to preload an array of CodeNames and do it that way? I'm thinking along the lines of something like...

Dim CodeNames
CodeNames = Array( mySheet1, mySheet2, mySheet3 ...)

For x = 1 to HoweverMany
CodeNames(x).Range(myRangeName).value = someValue
Next x

Calling Codename After Creating Worksheet?

Mar 7, 2013

The below example creates a new worksheet and tries to get the new worksheets codename. The problem is when I run the code, I can't seem to be able to pull the codename from the newly created sheet (ie Cell A1 = "" instead of "sheetx").

Sub test()Set mysht = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets.Add    x = mysht.CodeName    mysht.Range("A1") = xEnd Sub

Changing Worksheet CodeName Generates Error(s)

Jan 14, 2010

Reference: [url]

I delete sheet1, copy sheet3, rename to sheet1 and then attempt to rename the CodeName to Sheet1 as well.
This worked initially with out errors.

Now on the first run of the macro it generates an error:

Run-time error '32813':
Method 'name' of object '_VBComponent' failed

This fails to rename the CodeName of "Sheet1" (.Name)
Run it again and it renames the CodeName but generates yet another error:

Run-time error '-2147221080 (800401a8)':
automation error

Refer To An Array Variable In A Formula

Nov 30, 2008

I'm trying to use arrays in a macro!

Here's my
Sub ArrayTest()
' ArrayTest Macro
Dim Array1() As Variant, Array2() As Variant
Dim R As Integer, ilR1 As Integer, iLR2 As Integer
ilR1 = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
iLR2 = Cells(Rows.Count, 7).End(xlUp).Row
ReDim Array1(1 To ilR1)
ReDim Array2(1 To iLR2)
For R = 1 To ilR1
Array1(R) = Cells(R, 1) & Cells(R, 2) & Cells(R, 3)
Next R
For R = 1 To iLR2
Array2(R) = Cells(R, 7) & Cells(R, 8) & Cells(R, 9)
Next R
For R = 2 To UBound(Array1)
If WorksheetFunction.CountIf(?????, Array1(R)) > 0 Then Cells(R, 4) = "old" Else Cells(R, 4) = "new"
Next R
End Sub

Basically, the macro concatenates the content of three columns from two different tables into two arrays. Array1 contains the current stuff and Array2, the old one. If I CountIf items from Array1 into the content of Array2, I should get what's new (count 0).

Now, ? in the code should refer to the content of Array2. How do I do that?

The errors I get are 424 object required [Array(iLR2)], 1004 method 'Range' of object '_Global' failed [Range(Array2) or Range(Array2(2), Array2(iLR2))], or type mismatched [Array2].

2000: How To Refer To Worksheet In The Same Book

Nov 12, 2005

I have twelve sheets in the book called "Jan", "Feb" to "Dec". Now I will use value in the two sheets by this format:

Row1 will contain columns, "jan", "feb", and etc.

Row2 should be like "=JAN!b2", "=FEB!b2", etc till "=Dec!b2".

Now the question is, how can I use reference, but not directly put in the sheetname such as "Jan!b2"?

In another word, what I want to use is like "=Worksheets(cells(...))!b2".

Named Range. Refer To Current WorkSheet

Jan 2, 2008

I put all my named ranges in a seperate worksheet in the workbook.

On a different sheet I have all my data with references to the named ranges. But what it gives me is the cell information from the sheet on which the named range is located and not on the worksheet where I actually need the calculations to be done.

How can I make the named range refer to the cells in the worksheet in which it sits?

Worksheet 1

Worksheet 2
I name the function Red apples
RedApples =CONCATENATE($A1&"Red Apples")

Worksheet 3

Question #1
How do I make the name reference in worksheet 2 refer to
the cells located in the worksheet in which i use it. In other words, when I use RedApples in Worksheet 3, it gives me what is sitting in A1 in worksheet 2 instead of in A1 on Worksheet 1.

Question #2
How do I make the name reference in Worksheet 3 keep stepping down along Column A in Worksheet 1?

Formula at issue in actuality is

=IF($S5>0.149,Morethan15,IF(AND($S5<0.15,$S5>0.999 ),Morethan10,IF(AND($S5<0.999,$S5>0.0499),Morethan 5,IF(AND($S5<0.05,$S5>0),Morethan0,IF($S5<0,Lessth an0)))))

the morethan15,10,5,0 and lessthan0 is defined in the last worksheet

Use Cell Data To Refer Worksheet In Closed Workbook

Jan 29, 2010

At the moment, I have a project where everyone is putting work data on seperate workbooks. Each months work is placed onto another worksheet within that workbook.

The supervisor has his own workbook, that grabs data from each of the workers books. Getting the data is easy enough, however because the supervisor has barely any knowledge of computers, I would like to make it as easy to set up for future months.

Right now, data is collected in each cell using the following formula:-

='[otherusersworkbook.xls]December 2009'!$C$620

Is there a way of getting that phrase to substitute the part that says "December 2009" with whatever is put into column A on the same row?

Using CodeName In VBA To Set New Formula

Dec 17, 2009

I am writing a VBA macro to update a financial workbook. 10 of the sheets within the file are re-names depending on the start of production date. So, in one file they may be CY09, CY10, CY11...and then in another CY10, CY11, CY12. I need to update the Cell L14 on the first CY page to a value on the BOM page.

I want CYXX!F12 = BOM!L14
And CYXX's code name is Sheet3411

To do this, I want to use the code name - because it is the same in all the files I have (100+).

But I cannot find enough/right Codename reference information to make this work.

I tried:

Sheet3411.Range("F12").FormulaR1C1 = "=BOM!R[2]C[6]"

I would appreciate if someone could help with this particular issue. (A little explanation of when I can and cannot use the codename would be appreciated as well. As this is something I will be maintaining for years.)

Use Of Worksheet Variable

Apr 26, 2007

I'm having difficulty using a worksheet variable with control objects on worksheets.
The following code is successful at getting the value of the text in textbox txtDCN.

Public Sub test()
Dim text As String
text = Worksheets("Master Table").txtDCN.Value
End Sub

The following code gives compile error "Method or data member not found" on the last line of code. I've searched around a bit all over the web but cannot find any examples of this same error. It's obvious that the compiler cannot figure out the reference to the text box but I cannot figure out why for the life of me.

Public Sub test()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim text As String
Set ws = Worksheets("Master Table")
text = ws.txtDCN.Value

Replacing Worksheet;with Variable Name

Mar 1, 2007

I'm replacing a specific sheet on a workbook with another one, but I want the users to be able to browse to a file, replace the sheet with the new one and re-establish the links on the replaced sheet with the target workbook. This macro is running out of the workbook that supplies the replacement sheet. The idea is that the user opens this workbook, runs the macro, browses to the file they need to fix and hey presto! I'm doing something stupid with my variable name, I'm sure it's syntax but I don't know what I'm doing wrong. The code is posted below.

Sub Macro1()
Dim ToBeFixed
ToBeFixed = Application.GetOpenFilename

Set Variable To Worksheet In Another Workbook

In conjuction with a previous request I've tried to create my own vba code (actually amend existing code i have) but its failing........ whats wrong??

Sub Retail_1_Xfer()
Dim NextRow As Long, Isht As Worksheet, Lsht As Worksheet
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Set Isht = Worksheets("Retail Team 1")
Set Lsht = Worksheets("Raw Data")
NextRow = Lsht. Cells(Rows.Count, 2).End(xlUp).Row + 1 'next empty row in col A
Lsht.Range("A" & NextRow).Value = Isht.Range("A9").Value
Lsht.Range("B" & NextRow).Value = Isht.Range("A4").Value
Lsht.Range("C" & NextRow).Value = Isht.Range("B9").Value
Lsht.Range("D" & NextRow).Value = Isht.Range("N3").Value
Lsht.Range("E" & NextRow).Value = Isht.Range("N2").Value
Lsht.Range("F" & NextRow).Value = Isht.Range("BJ9").Value

I think its got something to do with the fact that the worksheet " Retail Team 1 " is in another workbook

Variable Range Copies To Second Worksheet

Apr 4, 2014

Not sure why this Code is not copying data across to the second worksheet.

The attached file 140404 Need Range.xlsm is an extract showing only the relevant elements of a much larger structure.

Drivers upload a stock record each day onto the Data Input sheet, listing what products and volumes they have loaded.

Because the range of products varies every day, this has to be set as a "dynamic" range on the worksheet.

To create a printable form, I need to copy each Item ID and Quantity from the Data Input sheet into the "Van Load" spreadsheet.

So Data Input D10 copies to Van Load E6 and the quantities from C10 to G6, down one row, repeat, etc. until the last row of variable Data Input range.

Option Explicit

Dim lRow As Range, oCell As Range, nRD As Range, ws As Worksheet

Set lRow = ActiveSheet.Range("B" & Range("B65536").End(xlUp).Row)

A Variable Which Is Used By Several Subs In A Worksheet But Is Not Global?

I am working on a workbook which uses a large number of variables. I am trying to keep them as "local" as possible to keep it simple. Some of my variables are local to the subs they're used in. Some are global as they're used by subs in several sheets. A third type of variable is used by several subs all belonging to the same sheet. Is there a way of declaring them so they're known by all subs in that sheet, but not by every sub in the workbook?
