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

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.

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

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?

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.

Transpose Formula In Vba With Variable Row
I’m trying to have a transpose formula with a variable in the VBA code. The Data is in column AG, starting in row 6 but the end is always different. The transpose formula should copy the data into Column Z (also with a variable row). So if the Data is AG6:AG7 it should go for example to Z 50 and AA 50 etc.

Dim lngTransposeBottom As Long
Dim lngFormulaDataBottom As Long
Dim countnonblank As Integer, myRange As Range

Set myRange = Columns("AG:AG")
countnonblank = Application.WorksheetFunction. CountA(myRange)
Range("Z" & lngFormulaDataBottom).Offset(3, 0).Select
Range(Selection, Selection.Offset(0, countnonblank)).Select
lngTransposeBottom = Range("AG65536").End(xlUp).Row
Selection.FormulaArray = "=TRANSPOSE(R6C33,R""" & lngTransposeBottom & """C33)"

Unfortunatly I always get the following error message: “Unable to set the FormulaArray property of the Range class”. how to change the code to get it up and running?

Summation Across Of A Variable Amount Of Columns VBA Formula

Basically, the number of grey columns in each of the three sets will equal num_objs. I want the user to be able to enter values into the grey columns in the middle section and the values of the two rightmost white columns (with '0's in them currently) will change accordingly.

My current code is below. However, I keep getting a compile error saying "Expected: end of statement". I've been searching for a solution online for a couple days now, and I don't see how my code is different than what I've been seeing of other people using variables in their formulas.

This below is the best I can get but it 1004 errors out, I'm assuming because of my "Row" variable. Should I try a concatenate and custom build the formula each time within the macro?

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?

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))

VBA To Autofill Formula Over Column Data Calculate And Replace Original Data
Id like to apply a formula, any formula to an entire column if it contains data, and incorporate the original data in the calculation and then replace the original data with the result. I don't want to have to create new columns.

Dim Limit As Long
Dim r As range
Set r = range("A1")

r.FormulaR1C1 = _
"=IF(RC[0]"""",(SUBSTITUTE(RC[0],""."",""/"")+0) ,"""")"
Limit = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count
r.AutoFill Destination:=range(r, Cells(Limit, r.Column))

Vba - Cell Copy And Time Variable
Into Sheet1 there is in A1 (or should i call it better R1C1) a value which is update every sec from i timestamp cell.
If the value of this cell change i want to put the previous value into A1(can be another) cell of Sheet2 and keep the new value into A1 of the Sheet1

When the value change again i'd like to put it underneath the cell A1in Sheet2, so that i can take a history of the values.
So there will be a column A with different rows.

Every 3 mins i want change the column into Sheet2 so from A now the values will be update on column B

Everything will start when i open my excel file, because the timestamp will start to run.
What about if i want to align the change of the column with a particulary hour?
for instance
if i open my excel file at 9.33am everything will start since that time, but what if i want make it start from (a multiple of) 9.00 am (so every 3 min from 9am?

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.

Replace Function In VBA
I'm working with a word table pasted into excel. The dashes in the word table paste into Excel (2003) as small boxes. I can use the find and replace function in Excel and in the Excel environment the replace function works. I recorded the replace function so I could develop the action in VBA. The recoded action does not work. The data I've pasted in below looks fine, however when pasted into Excel all of the "-" paste in as small boxes. When I used the chr function the chr code equals 63 which is "?". I used chr(63) in the replace function. This causes the VBA replace function to replace all characters in the file with dashes. I've tried several other codes (127,129,141,143,144,157) (none worked) based on the following website:


Cells.Replace What:=Chr(63), Replacement:="-" 'finds and replaces the - that converted to boxes

I can paste in the data using paste special "unicode text" but I loose the strike through formating which I need to identify obsolete data.
