Is possible to pass names into a worksheet function and whether values from other sheets are able to be passed in, eg i am trying to paste this function into the work sheet to find the left two characters of a certain string. However the string position varies:

I use a few Functions in my VBA code. All these functions, are declared as "Public", and reside in a single module. However, they are called from many different modules during code execution. (i.e. many functions called from many modules - hence the "Public" declaration).

My issue is that in addition to being available to different VBA Modules, these Functions are also available on the worksheet as a UDF (so if a user presses "=" in the formula bar, the auto-complete shows these functions when the first characters match). Is there a way to remove the availability of the function on user worksheet? i.e. to allow a Function to be called from different modules in VBA, but prevent it from being available on the worksheet.

My current work-around is to prefix all Public Function names with letter "j" - as no excel formula seems to begin with it - none of them show up as auto-complete options. Nevertheless, the Functions are still available to the user - which is what I would like to prevent.

I've been reading about usage of worksheet functions in macros, and I guess I'm still not getting it. What I want to do, is use Countif and Indirect worksheet functions in a macro but it always fails. Here is my formula

IF(Worksheetfunction.Countif(Worksheetfunction.INDIRECT("[DaysWorking.xls]'Collect No Stats'!$A:$A"),'2009'!Range("D" & x))>0)

Basically, I want to see if 2 different cells in 2 different workbooks match and then I would use the information to write different info in another cell. X is just a variable in a DO WHILE LOOP. Can these functions be used in a macro? Is there an alternative?

I have an excel problem with formula. I’m not sure of the formula I think its sumif but don’t know how to express the criteria . I am trying to create a spreadsheet that will total the data from Colum B, C & D. I have 3 columns with the following data.

Column B Heading Length Column C Heading Width Column D Heading Depth

Column E Heading LM (lineal meters) will have the data only from column B. Column F Heading M2 will equal the data of column B & C (remembering the math is M2 = column B x Column C. Column G Heading M3 will equal the data of Column B, C & D (remembering the math is M3 = column B x Column C x Column D. That’s the easy part but in columns H to J, I have other headings and column K is my Rate.

Column L is my subtotal and this is where my problem lies, because the formula is =SUM(E1:J1)*K1 it has the potential to double up on figures when I use the dropdown formula for Columns E,F, and G all data is carried down with them. I want Column E to show only the value, if column B has a number and Columns C & D are empty. I want Column F to show only the value, if columns B & C have a number and Column D is empty. I want Column G to show on the value, if all columns have a number. If all these conditions are met, then only a value will be displayed in either column E, F, G Remembering that the values returned must be multiplied by the value of each number in the columns.

I have a spreadsheet which has extra worksheets at the end that the user can move around, if they need them.

Then i found out that users were adding there own sheets, so i protected the workbook, but i found out that this stops the user from moving the sheet.

Whats the easiest way probably using code to disable the worksheet functions, ie the ones that appear if you click on the tab (insert,delete,rename,move+copy,select all sheets etc) but still allow the user to move the sheet within the workbook

I have a spreadsheet using Data Validation to offer a list of text values for cells in the range E6 - E100. I have a worksheet change funtion to change the colour of the entire row based on the text chosen from the list.

What I would like to add is an input box that will appear when the value in the cell = "COMPLETE" asking for a completion date and adding the inputted date to the cell in column I in the same row.

Existing Worksheet Change Code;

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) 'Colour code rows based on order status Dim rng As Range, i As Long Dim cell As Range, Answers As Variant Dim Colors As Variant Colors = Array(24, 15, 38, 44, 42, 20, 36) Answers = Array("CLOSED", "SUSPENDED", _ "COMPLETE - Awaiting Inspection", "COMPLETE", "WORKING", _ "SCHEDULED", "READY") Set rng = Range("E6:E100") rng.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone For Each cell In rng For i = LBound(Answers) To UBound(Answers) If LCase(cell) = LCase(Answers(i)) Then cell.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = Colors(i) Exit For End If Next i Next cell End Sub

I have a workbook that has many simple functions moving data around to different sheets and processing some if statements on some of the data. The problem that I am running into is all of the data is initially pulled in from a SQL DB, and I believe that the workbook is calculating many of it's if statements, prior to all of the SQL data being loaded, therefore, many of the worksheet formulas are coming up with the wrong result. Is there a way to delay the calculation of all the basic worksheet functions, so that I can ensure that all the data is in the workbook from SQL, before they all fire. I have attempted to use Tools--Options--Calculation--Manual Calculation, but it appears that even though I have things set that way, all of the formulas in the workbook have already pulled their values through.

What I would like to do is have a master workbook that I can import different .csv files into as a new worksheet. Then calculations will be run on the values that are imported. My goal is to select a column and have corresponding list update the values. After that formulas will run on the calculations. I have got the import csv file down using VBA. The problem I was running into was with the Data Validation. Since I was overwriting my existing sheet I would get a #REF error because the link was broken. So I have worked my way around this for the list using the OFFSETSHEET Function:

VB: Function SHEETOFFSET(offset, Ref) [COLOR=#0000ff] ' Returns cell contents at Ref, in sheet offset[/COLOR] Application.Volatile With Application.Caller.Parent SHEETOFFSET = .Parent.Sheets(.Index + offset) _ .Range(Ref.Address).Value End With End Function

This returns a value to a row in my mater sheet and I reference this for the data validation list.

However, I get the same problem when working with the HLookup function, the #REF error occurs. So far the only way I have figured out to work around this is to create another sheet that dynamically updates its values using the same OFFSETSHEET function, and my master sheet then references it.

I have an array with dimensions (5000,30). I want to perform a worksheet function "Percentile" on specific columns within the array. So for instance I may want to know the element falling at the 50th percentile in column 5 of the 30 column array. Is there a way to do this without having to place the array onto a worksheet?

I am aware of the following topic in the VBA Help file:

"Using Microsoft Excel Worksheet Functions in Visual Basic You can use most Microsoft Excel worksheet functions in your Visual Basic statements. To see a list of the worksheet functions you can use, see List of Worksheet Functions Available to Visual Basic.

Note Some worksheet functions aren’t useful in Visual Basic. For example, the Concatenate function isn’t needed because in Visual Basic you can use the & operator to join multiple text values."

And I'm aware of how to call Excel funcitons from within VBA; e.g., answer = Application.WorksheetFunction.Min(myRange)

However, not only are some Excel functions not useful; the fact is they cannot be used because VBA has a native function that does exactly the same thing and you have to use that native VBA function to achieve your goal. It is these overlapping functions that I am especially interested in. I want to know what I should use directly in VBA and what I need to go to Excel for.

Is it possible to use excel functions with in VB? (such as CONCATENATE, LOGEST etc.) For example, if I have a site no. and data for this site in an array could I append the site number to the data by:

i have a spreadsheet acting as a type of database (our work wont pay for more licences for access!), and it has multiple functions running. well, it has 3000 lines x2 for 2 sheets with about 5-10 full colums of functions. this means the template file i have starts off at about 10mg. with data, this goes upto around 15-20mb. howver, we get a lot of the massive size increases. however, the sizes we get are often upto 150mb! so, i dont know vb at all, and have only learned functions recently. was hoping someone might be able to help out sorting this out? i dont know if i can upload a coppy online, but i can email.

So I have say 1-4 columns that may have an A to describe a student as absent. In the 5th column I'd like it to add all the A's and return a value of 1-4 or if possible... a result that says 4A etc. The column might have another letter in it so i only need to add it up if it has an A in it.

To visualize, i just want to add up the students that have not attended a class.

I wish to set 2 different cases (good and normal sales) for a list of data.

During good sales - fruits can be sold within 4 hours - Fruits sold off during peak season (Definition of peak season: 2 calendar days before or on public holiday or 10 days before 31st May) - < 2 fruits per type

Date of public holiday for example: 1 Jan 2014, 18 Apr 2014, 1 May 2014

For normal sales - fruits only able to sell of the next day - Sell of on non-peak season - > 2 fruits per type

I am trying to write a formula that will satisfy the following:

C1 and G1 are number values.

IF (cell E1 does not contain any text) AND (G1-C1-12.5>=0), then output (G1-C1-12.5), otherwise output nothing (""). BUT, IF (cell E1 DOES contain text) AND (G1-C1-13>=0), then output (G1-C1-13), otherwise output nothing.

I have an entire excel column which was filled-in with values ranging from 1000 to 40000. What I was trying to do is to just sum up the all the values which are between 9000 and 20000. I tried using the sumif function =sumif(and(A5:A40,">9000"),(A5:A40,"<20000")) but it does not work, it says that the formula that I typed contains an error.

Currently, all of our data in Excel are linked by using Excel Functions between workbooks and some of the files are so large that it may take 10 minutes to open and copy and paste a cell may take three minutes (which is ridiculous slow).

Pardon my ignorance, my understand of Excel VBA/Marco is about automation. Even i use marco to run the excel, i still need formula in the cell in order to perform the task, right?

I have a cell (D19) that I want to be automated to return a value based on a formula (it will equal Cell D15). But I also want to have the ability to allow the user to override this and enter a manual value if needed. My idea on how to do this is having a check box with a macro where if it is checked it will unlock the cell and clear out the formula and when checked it will reenter the formula and lock the cell.

Also same form - I need a check box that will check all applicable check boxes (all boxes under Deductions to be taken). Can anyone assist me in setting up these check boxes so that my functions will work, or if there is a "better" way of providing these functions please let me know.

(1) I need to work out the value of 2 years worth of interest on a loan - details would be

Loan = 30,180.00 interest = 14.90% pa (calculated daily) term of loan would be 60 months

I am currently using an ammortisation speadsheet which calculates the interest per month etc ... at this time I simply highlight and calculate the interest which would be two years worth ...

the problem is this calculation varies from the bank interest calculations (although the repayments are the same and the total interest payable amounts are the same)

The banks calculations are said to be done on the basis that the minimum monthly repayment is met and there are no additional fees thrown in ... so I cant understand the difference ...

(2) In addition to the above question, but working on the same loan, traditionally amortisation tables calculate the amount of the repayments, the interest component and the principal component ... some include a column where you can factor in additional repayments on a row by row basis (like the one I am referring to) the table assumes that the payment is made on the due date ...

what I would like to be able to do is (a) insert the actual payment dates (b) if no payment is recorded for that period, automatically insert an overdue fee

There are three situations that should yield the answer "overdue" and a fourth and fifth situation that should yield an answer "on target". I'm new to functions and have spent SEVERAL hours on this

=IF((OR(B14=1,2,3,12,15,16)),"A",IF(OR(B14=4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,13,14,21,40,41,42,43,44,45,46,47,50,51, 52,53,54,55,56,59,60),"B",IF(OR(B14=20,30,57,58),"C",IF(OR(B14=33,31,32,34,35,22),"E F OR G",IF(OR(B14=36),G,"ERROR")))))

I tried to do a search for this but the search function was not working.

I have an excel sheet that I can scan Mac address into. The reason I created the sheet is because when I scan them in they are uppercase and do not have separators. I would like to combine 2 excel functions into 1

is there any way I can make the chart inputs variable. I have an array of numbers. lets say 100 of them, these are linked cells and depending on the input I might have less than 100 numbers in these 100 cells. All the cells which have numbers will appear in a block first and all the non number cells will appear below them as blanks in anotherblock. Now i have to create a chart from these numbers, so at times I have to take the 90 cells where there are numbers and other times I have to take 95 cells. Is there any way I can get over this.

I'm trying to write a macro that looks up Column A so that each time it finds "Agent" as the first word in a cell, it takes that whole cell and copies it to another sheet.

I tried creating an array function that combines the If, Vlookup, and Right() and Left() functions, but no luck. Ideally, I would want this as a VBA macro.

I am writing some custom functions to be saved in an Add-In file, but am having trouble saving named ranges. I would like named ranges in the Add-In file to be available in other spreadsheets. Is there a way to do this? Or is there a way to take a range from Excel and save it into a globally available named range using VBA?
