I have the following formula that has ceased to work in excel. I don't think there are any errors in it so I'm unsure as to why the link no longer works. Neither of the files I'm using has moved location on the server.

I am getting a #REF error when using an INDIRECT function within a MATCH function to check against a dynamic named range. Basically, I am trying to get the row reference so that I can go back and extract other data from the row (in a table contained in another sheet) into the current worksheet.

I attach an example file for reference. The issue arises when a Dynamic Named Range is used. In the example file, if a value from a static range is chosen, the match with indirect function works, but it fails with the dynamic range.

I have 3 worksheets for 3 separate managers, each sheet has a column which uses a COUNTBLANK function to work out the number of days off an employee has had off in the last two weeks:

Now the formula works perfectly on each worksheet, however I also have a master worksheet (which is identically set out and formatted to the 3 manager sheets) which uses a vlookup formula to pull the data from all 3 worksheets into one at the beginning of the workbook.

The problem I've come across is that the COUNTBLANK formula doesn't work on the master worksheet - I think this has something to do with the vlookup formula entered into the cells which I consider to be blank, but excel doesn't?

I've tried using a separate vlookup formula to pull the data from the 3 managers worksheets and this does work unless an employee appears on more than one managers' sheet - then the data from both worksheets is added together.....

Is there another function I could use to display the information I need to?

I am trying to create a single cell formula that returns the min value of an array returned from a vlookup function. This is part of a more complex solution that I am trying to implement, but I think I have narrowed my problem down to this issue, so I have created a very simple example to demonstrate.

For some reason Absolute $ or INDIRECT is not working inside my formula when I add a row to my chart. Formula keeps adjusting.

Here is my formula...=IFERROR(LARGE(IF($B$5:$B$50=$K108,$A$5:$A$50),1),"")

$B$5:$B$50 goes to $B$6:$B$51 AND $A$5:$A$50 goes to $A$6:$A$51..... it can't do that, throws my counts out, needs to stay in this range B5:B50 and A5:A50 when I add a row to chart

In Mr Excel's Pod Cast on April 12th, he showed how to use the OFFSET function to define a range inside a SUM function. Then he had Conditional Formatting that would highlight the range that was being summed. Can anyone tell me what the formula would be inside the Conditional Formatting dialog box to get the OFFSET range to have a certain format?

Is it risky for someone to edit an excel document while it is still in the flashdisk or external hard disk? I was told that this habit can lead to loss of data or the data can be affected if someone does this. I was told that I have to copy/cut paste the document onto my desktop, edit/ work on it then move it back to the storage device. Is all that work necessary, or can I simply work on the document while it is still in the flashdisk or external hard disk..

I have a list of parts that I have to create in a system. It is easier to do if I create a list of materials ahead of time of what components are needed. What I have done is create a part list that contains a list of parts, what the cost, whether they are manufactured or purchased, and what the sub component is if they are manufactured.

This worked great till I ran into my first sub component that contain its own sub components. I am attaching the spreadsheet so everyone can see what I am doing or more to the point trying to do. IF VBA is a better solution that would be great.

What I need is a formula (or VBA if it is better) that brings back the sub-components and their sub-components for each part until the parts tree for the original part number reaches the base purchased sub-parts.

I have the 1st worksheet set up in three different ways. The first one you run into is simply a length calculator and can be ignored.

The second way is the original way I had the spreadsheet working and it works fine for parts with only one sub-component. If a sub-part has more than one sub-component then it doesn't work.

The third section is where I started building what I thought would work, but it is clumsy and only will work nicely if I can place an IF statement that will only bring back a value for a sub-component if one exists otherwise it will remain blank.

What I would like is to have a formula that will auto fill the information IF and only if it exists for each sub-part listing all sub-components ( I need if it exists, cost, whether it is manufactured or purchased, any and all sub-components [followed by the same information as the parent] and vendor).

I'm trying to calc a Simple Moving Average of financial Fund data (row=fund type, column=date) on a very large matrix for a particular fund and date range. I locate the Fund of interest and retrieve the Start and End dates of interest and retrieve their addresses using the ADDRESS function. Since ADDRESS returns a text string, HOW DO I incorporate it's results into the following array function (which ignors blanks and 0 cells): {=AVERAGE(IF($L$10:$V$10>0,$L$10:$V$10,FALSE))}?

This is the format of an external call that I am trying to run. I need to change the number (40720) based on the day of the month (i.e. if its the 5th, then use 40725.

I am attemting to use a function to do this and passing in the device name (Windham) and location (40720). Unfortunately, I have been unable to get a String to send back as a formula. My attempt was as follows :

= Location ("Windham", 40720, "D7")

Function Location(name, num, cell) Dim psDay As Integer Dim psLocal As String psDay = Day(Now) Location = (Range(cell).Formula = "=StacServer|" & name & "!'" & (num + psDay) & "'") End Function

What I have attached is spreadsheet I've built to quickly generate an army list for a tabletop game. Anyone can click on the Force Organization Slot (FOS) and choose the type of unit and from there, select the specific unit name attached to that FOS. Each individual unit has a list of options/upgrades currently attached to the sheet from cells AD through AX and the points cost listed next to each upgrade.

For example, when selecting the Rhino unit from the Dedicated_Transport FOS, there should be 4 drop down lists of selectable upgrades (Storm Bolter, Hunter-Killer Missile, Dozer Blade, and Extra Armor). Currently, I have only named the ranges for the Rhino and Razorback units in order to get this working properly without having to go through the entire list of units and change names/create ranges/ect.

What I'm aiming to do is to create an individual drop down list that is directly related to the Unit Name cell in order to populate a complete and selectable upgrade list for each unit. I have played around with some functions that work in the spreadsheet (see cells X10:X12) but do not work properly with Data Validation.

Oddly enough, when I enter this formula under Data Validation:

inside cell a30 i have a date function which displays: Mon 07/22/2013 3:30:14 AM. i realize that excel actually uses 41477.146 Can i search for something kin the display, i.e. "Mon"?

Solution for all: {=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(Sheet1!$A$2:$A$16,$F$34:$F$40,INDEX(Sheet1!$B$2:$K$16,0,MATCH(T$10,Sheet1!$B$1:$K $1,0))),U34:U40)}

Say I have an Excel workbook with two sheets: Employee Hours and Employee Wages. On the Hours sheet I have 31 columns (Jan1 - Jan31) with inputs for the number of hours worked by each employee by day. On the Wages sheet I have listed the same 31 columns with their wages each day (I do this to factor in wage increases that occur fairly often).

My goal is to use an INDEX/MATCH function to calculate the total daily compensation for each day on the Wages sheet by multiplying hours*wages for all employees that day. Here's the code I'm using:

i have written a code in VBA to interpolate the value of Y0 corresponding to X0 using a set of (X,Y) points. (I have written this in module1) . This function works when i call it through a Sub or another Function in VBA. but it does not work when I try to use it as a function in my excel worksheets (when I type : =interpolate(A1:A10,B1:B10,30) .... 30 is an arbitrary value). in this case I get #value! error

The function is known in within the worksheets because when I start typing its name, the Auto Name Complete feature of excel, finds this function.

I am new to VAB for excel. Please give me a hint to see my mistakes of if something is missing inside my code.

PHP Public Function Interpolate(ByRef X() As Double, ByRef Y() As Double, ByRef X0 As Double) As Double Dim I As Integer, Slope As Double, NData As Integer NData = UBound(X) For I = 1 To UBound(X) - 1 If (X(I) = X0) Then Interpolate = Y(I) Exit Function ElseIf (X0 < ListMax(X(I), X(I + 1)) And X0 > ListMin(X(I), X(I + 1))) Then Slope = (Y(I) - Y(I + 1)) / (X(I) - X(I + 1)) Interpolate = Y(I + 1) + Slope * (X0 - X(I + 1)) Exit Function End If Next I End FunctionPublic Function ListMax(ParamArray ListItems() As Variant) Dim I As Integer ListMax = ListItems(0) For I = 0 To UBound(ListItems()) If ListItems(I) > ListMax Then ListMax = ListItems(I) Next IEnd FunctionPublic Function ListMin(ParamArray ListItems() As Variant) Dim I As Integer ListMin = ListItems(0) For I = 0 To UBound(ListItems()) If ListItems(I) < ListMin Then ListMin = ListItems(I) Next IEnd Function

I'm starting a project where Excel will be used as the main UI for defining a table of data. I'm expecting to define a "template" - xlt i guess - that users can open and save as an xls, without over-writing the template. Users will populate the spreadsheet with a lot of help from user defined functions. I'm just getting started and would like to populate a particular cell with the current date, but only the first time the sheet is opened. I tried checking whether a cell was empty before assigning a value to it, of course this meant recursion!

Also: It might be nice to use the Today() function inside a UDF, but TODAY isn't a member of Application.WorksheetFunction - is there no way to reference TODAY() from within a UDF?

The first three formulas give valid results but the fourth example throws in an error after hitting Enter. As you can see I put in the HOUR function. As far as my knowledge goes the HOUR function generates an integer.

I have a spreadsheet that uses a function defined in VBA code that is housed in an add-in which is stored in the default location (C:Documents And Settings{user_name}Application DataMicrosoftAdd-Ins). To share this spreadsheet, I first install the add-in on the other person's computer. Then, when the other person opens the spreadsheet, the function doesn't work because the function call on the worksheet contains the whole path of the add-in (and the path contains my {user_name} rather than the other person's). So, the immediate solution is to just delete the path of the add-in from the function call (so that only the name of the function remains, plus the arguments of course). But this is quite inconvenient given the number of times the function appears in the worksheet, and it's not practical as we continue to share files like this.

My question is: is there a way to make sure that the 'C:Documents...' never gets added to the function call in the first place? I mean, why doesn't Excel just try to run the function locally before it adds that path that refers to a separate computer? I do realize that there are other methods of sharing VBA code. For example, I know that I could include the code in the specific spreadsheet that I'm trying to share, and this would work. But, that's not the answer I'm looking for (for one, the function refers to a very large amount of data stored in the add-in, and there are other reasons that make the aforementioned method impractical). I'm wondering if I'm missing something, and if there is a way to stop Excel from tacking on the path string to the function call, so that the function would just work on any computer as long as they have the add-in installed?

I'm trying to create a simple VBA function in Excel so that I can sort and calculate results based on various conditions. I can get everything to work except changing the color of the cell where the output is placed. Here is what I have so far:

Function nameOfMyFunction(arguments) If conditions Then nameOfMyFunction = "No GRP" ActiveCell.Font.Color = RGB(255,0,0) End If

I'm sure that its something simple, but I've spent long enough on my own trying to figure it out and nothing seems to work.

Is it possible to use the HYPERLINK function inside of a validation list?

Presently I have a dynamically named range on another worksheet that includes a hyperlinked term. When I attempt to create a validation list using this named range the term appears in the list without the hyperlink.

I am trying to use the OR function within an IF condition. when I use each function seperatly, it works fine. but both functions together always return the value of "B" - as false result, even when the requested cell holds one of the true values.

I have 3 sheets ("zip", "report", "ches") in a workbook

I want "ches" column A to be filled with data from "report" column D if there is a match of "zip" cell A12 from "report" column S

I keep getting the error "unable to get the Vlookup property of the WorksheetFunction class"

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

Dim myRange As Range Dim myRange1 As Range

Set myRange = ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("report").Range("A1:S65536") Set myRange1 = ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("ches").Range("a65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)

myRange1.Value = Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("zip").Range("a12"), myRange, 4) End Sub

I have a vlookup that returns an #N/A error due to the table array originally being formatted as text. The data is simply a two or three digit number.

I have tried everything I can think of to get the table array to equal the lookup value.

I formated cell to number. I tried tab delimated/finish. I tried typing a 1 in a different cell and doing a paste special then multiply. I tried copying to a different worksheet. I just cannot get it to work.

VLOOKUP will only work to a set limit number of text characters in a cell. So I can search for the value "*orange*" if the cells contain a reasonable amount of text, but as soon as this exceeds some limit, it returns BLANK. I've also tried using INDEX/MATCH with same problem. Is there a workaround or alternative function?

For example:

This will work and return the text in cell A2 A2: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. Orange. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog

This will return BLANK A2: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. Orange. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
