Replace A Constant With A Variable In An Array Formula.
I have the following array function that I am trying to get to work properly:

ActiveCell.FormulaArray = "=SUM(IF(NCR!O2:O100=39326,NCR!Q2:Q100,0))"
39326 is the value of 9/1/2007, and this formula works properly.

I am looking for a way to use this formula but replace 39326 with whatever date is in the first row of the same column as the active cell when it is run.

That is, if the macro was run with cell B8 as the active cell, "39326" would be replaced with whatever value was in cell B1.

Store Cell Address In Variable
I would like to record the address of the last set of cells that data was input into to a variable so that a user can choose to delete the last entry. An 'Undo' button really.

What I have is a user form that writes different materials to thier respective sheets in the database. (Material1, Material2, etc.) Some materials have a different number of variables (some have a width and some don't, but all have a quantity.)

This is the code I have for adding the material to the database (each material has it's own button with material specific code.)

Private Sub AddToMaterial1_Click()
Set c = Worksheets("Material1").Range("a65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)
Application.ScreenUpdating = False

c.Value = Me.Material1Quantity.Value
c.Offset(0, 1).Value = Me.Material1Description.Value
c.Offset(0, 2).Value = Me.Material1Length.Value

Dim lastenty1
lastentry1 = c.Address
Dim lastentry2
lastentry2 = c.Offset(0, 1).Address
Dim lastentry3
lastentry3 = c.Offset(0, 2).Address
Dim lastentry4
lastentry4 = c.Offset(0, 3).Address
Dim lastentry5
lastentry5 = vbNullString
Dim lastentry6
lastentry6 = vbNullString

Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

The following code is what I am trying to do for a single button to clear the last entry to the database.

Private Sub RemoveLastEntry_Click()
Range(lastentry3).ClearContents '(There is always at least 3 cells to clear)
If lastentry4 = nullstring Then Exit Sub
If lastentry5 = nullstring Then Exit Sub
If lastentry6 = nullstring Then Exit Sub
End Sub

Store The Selected Cell's Address Into A Variable
I have a table in which I have a "patient" column and a "page" column. The macro searches for a patient's number, then looks if this patient has the page "900.--". A patient may have more than one page, which will result in many rows with the same patient number. So far, my macro uses the search function to find a patient number, then compares the cell next to the active cell to see if it contains the page "900.--". If not, then my macro searches for the next patient and so on until the page is found and noted into another workbook or none is found.

In order to stop the loop, I am trying to store the address of the first cell found into a variable "rFirstCell" so that it can later on be compared to another variable, "rSecondCell", which represent the active cell. When both are the same, it means all the available search results have been tested and the loop should stop.

Sub testing()
Dim rRng As Range, rFirstCell As Range, rSecondCell As Range
Set rRng = Worksheets("Overview").[a1]
Dim sDeath As String
sDeath = "death"
ActiveSheet.AutoFilterMode = False
If LCase(rRng(2, 15).Value) = "x" Then
If LCase(rRng(2, 9).Value) = sDeath Then
Workbooks("DM Endpoint pages_test.xls").Activate

Access A Cell's Contents Via A Variable Containing Cell Address??
How can you access a cell's value via a vb variable that contains the cell's address. I have a vb variable named cellAddress (string) that contains "$A$1" and I want to assign the contents of what cellAddress points to another VB variable - how do i Do this?

e.g. if cellAddress = "$a$1" and A1 contains "xyz", I would like to assigne "xyz" to a new vaiable by referencing just cellAddress??? Also - Can anyone reccomend a good Excel VB book? A book that maybe stresses the VB language rather then a cook-book approach.

I am using vlookup to get a cell value from another sheet, but if the cell has "&" or "/" I need to substitue "&" and "/" with "and" so that the cell can be added later to a url.

i am using =VLOOKUP(a1,Sheet2!A1:W17968,6) to get the value of a1 in sheet 2 and return the value of column 6

this will return "Audio Cables & Leads" but i need it to say Audio Cables and Leads

I need the formula to also check and replace "/" with "and" as well so cables/wire will be Cables and wire

Incorporate Adjacent Cell In Formula W/o Naming Cell Address?
I searched and I keep finding something that's not quite what I'm looking to do so I think I'm missing something really simple.

Let's say that I want each cell in col b to be the sum of 5 plus whatever value is in the cell adjacent to it on the left (col).

I know that you can just write a formula in each cell like...

b1 will be =sum(a1+5)
b2 will be =sum(a2+5)

... but is there a shortcut so that you don't have to write out the actual cell address for each one?

Meaning - is there a predefined name or something that represents the cell to the left or right so you can just use that instead, allowing you to just copy paste the same formula all the way down the column? Something like...

b1 will be =sum(left+5)
b2 will be =sum(left+5)

... where "left" represents whatever value is in the cell to the left of that particular cell?

Formula That Returns Address Of The Active Cell

Excel updates the activecell address in the Name Box dynamically as you make a selection but I cannot find a standard formula to access it.

Formula Reference Cell Address In Cell
I have 2 sheets. In the first sheet, I have 3 columns. The first column contains transaction codes. The 2nd column contains the destination code (like a mapping cell where the value of the 3rd column would go but in a different sheet/2nd sheet) and the 3rd column contains the values for it. Would it be possible to reference a destination in a cell itself? Or should I just code it individually? I wouldnt want to reference each data one by one because the total would be 480 reference cells. Is there an easier way?

Selected Range Address To Variable
I have created a work diary in Excel which is built up in half hour blocks. I am able to create my appointments (usually one or two hour blocks) by selecting a group of cells and running a macro which merges the cells, colours them and puts a border round them.

I now want to be able to delete individual appointments by selecting the appropriate appointment and running a macro to copy and paste from the same range of cells in another worksheet (which is effectively my blank master diary page).
I have tried work out what code I need to put the range of the current selection into a variable in VBA but I'm not having any luck.

Auto-replace Typed Contents In A Cell With A Formula
I want to set up a sheet macro that will replace the contents of a cell (when a specific number is typed in) with a specific formula.

For instance, when "43" is typed into any cell within specified columns (say columns C and H), it changes to the following formula: =IF(D47="",43,IF(D47<=3030,408,43))(WHERE D47 WOULD REPRESENT THE CELL ADJACENT TO THE CELL WHERE "43" WAS TYPED.)


If "43" was typed into cell C1, then it would change to the formula: =IF(D1="",43,IF(D1<=3030,408,43))

If "43" was typed into cell C50, then it would change to the formula: =IF(D50="",43,IF(D50<=3030,408,43))

Use Cell Variable In Formula
I am having an issue using vlookup with named ranges.

I have a work book with 3 sheets on, the 3rd sheet has lists defined as named ranges and is named as lists.

The first and second sheet has references to the lists on this sheet, using the validation e.g
=(named range)

I was using the following if statement =IF($E$7="web policy",web_policy,IF($E$8="NUD",BU,IF($E$8="RAC",BU,IF($E$8="IB",IB,IF($E$8="BAU",BAU,not_known)))))

But I now need to add some more to this and have decieded to use Vlookup instead.

I have the vlookup in the 3rd sheet (lists sheet) and when the vlookup result is returned it returns the list name that I need to select, the problem I am facing is using this result to produce the list on sheet 1 or sheet 2.

The vlookup I am using is =VLOOKUP('Test Conditions'!E8,AD1:AE7,2,FALSE), but I can't use this on the first sheet as validation can't look at other sheets.

I have now changed formula slightly to;=VLOOKUP(ad32,AD1:AE7,2,FALSE), AD32 contains the formula that references the first sheet, but when I paste this into the validation I get the following error.

The list source must be a delimited list, or a reference to a single row or column

Formula To Call Variable File Name In Cell Links
The master has rows corresponding to numbered files:
4300 | CellValue1 | CellValue2 | etc
4301 | CellValue1 | CellValue2 | etc

In attempting a simple formula (a couple VBA codes I tried did not work and were probably substantially more than I needed anyway), I made the following:

='CMain FolderSub Folder[concatenate(cell w/file number,".xls")]Sheet1'!A1
This is identical to the copy/paste link formula currently in use except that I am trying to have the actual file number/name generated off the master list instead of what is in the file itself.

Purpose: in case I was not clear on this above, I am trying to automatically populate the master worksheet with the data from the workbook. The current procedure is to copy a line of the data from the workbook, then paste as a link in to the master worksheet on the row corresponding to the file number.

Address Elements In A Range In A Formula

I was hoping that I would be able to use the named cell eventcounter in formulae on the cells in the event range rather than having to use the cell address. So instead of having a formula that was something like this, =if(a3= etc etc.

I could refer to the range event and eventcounter. Eventcouter gets its value simply by counting the number of non blank cells in the event range, so consequently - I can only figure out how to address the last entry in the event range in the manner that i wish.

This prevents users from deleting or changing information. I want users to be able to click on the cell and it will bring up Outlook using the address but it is only reading the formula in the cell and so tries to link to E2.

Result Of Address Function In Formula

I have 2 cells A1 and A2, each containing an "Address" function to find the start cell and end cell of a range.

I want to get the average of this range using cells A1 and A2, but Excel treats the formula as an error: =Average(A1:A2) shows the error #DIV/0!

Going back one step and putting the formulas within cells A1 and A2 into the average formula doesn't work at all with a colon:.....................

Formula Return The Address Of The Last Numerical Entry
It's a spreadsheet of about 300 rows, each row corresponding to a certain department. each row is filled with various data, both text and numerical, including various different scores and averages. the columns include daily scores and weekly averages. I want to be able to create a new column that will calculate the time (in days or weeks) since the last score/average was entered.

1. a formula that will return the address of the last numerical entry in a given row. (I've got a MATCH formula that will do this, although it doesn't let me specify different cells or ranges, only the entire row)

2. whichever cell is returned will give the date instead of the value. (for example, if the last value entered is in $F$63, and Column F is headed 23/11/09, then the formula will give the date)

3. then finally, calculate the time between that date and the present time

I've tried various different things, both in normal Excel and the VBA editor, and I'm beginning to think maybe this isn't even possible.

Looking For Macro To Replace Formula's
I have been having a problem with the worksheet (attached) and was wondering if anyone could give me any help.

I will explain the purpose of the sheet etc first and what it does at the moment:

This work sheet is to record peoples projects, hours related to those projects, and calculate their availability 37.5-(project hours+pto) for Belfast and dublin and 40-(project hours+pto) for chicago, and also their utilization which is =((37.5-Availability)/37.5)*100 for belfast and Dublin and ((40-Availability)/40)*100 for Chicago.

When a project is added I am currently going in and updating the formula for that person to incorporate the new row which their project is on, this is proving to be quite time consuming, and I was wondering if there were any macro’s that could be used so that it would search for a name on the first column and use each of the hours that are in the column for the given week to calculate the availability?

The utilization is not a big problem as it just uses the availability so as long as the availability is correct then the utilization is correct..

If there is not a macro do you know of any way this can be automated so that I do not manually have to add to formula for each cell when a new row is added with a project and hours?
