# Copy A Formula In A Cell And Then Paste Only The Text Of The Formula

Jul 16, 2007
I would like to copy a formula in a cell and then paste only the text of the formula, but I can't figure it out. Basically, I would like to avoid going into the cells and absolute referencing or hitting F2, then copying the text.

When I hit "Ctrl C" to copy the cell, then hit "Alt/E/S/F/Enter" to paste the formula, it is just like a regular copy/paste formula-wise in that the references move.

I have a drop down list. When I choose something from the list, it creates a description (text) in the next cell. I need to be able to copy/paste the text from the cell, but it will only let me choose the formula instead.

If I have a cell lets say A1 with a formula in it say "=A2" how do I copy A1 into A3 so that A3 will contain the text =A2 (and not the formula)?

i pull the formula of o21 to o22

o21 has formula =IF(J21>=U21,1,"")

022 has formula =IF(J22>=U22,1,"")

and basically u21 and u22 are "=s20"

so may i know what formula i should use to simplify o21 and o22 so that i do not need to use u21 and u22

i cant use =IF(J21>=U$21,1,"") because if i copy this formula and paste to other cell, it will always refer to U$21...

I am trying to vlookup. I want to copy and paste formulas instead of values. Can I use a formula like IF because VLOOKUP only returns the cell value?

Is there a way to return the formula instead of the value using VLOOKUP?

I have one sheet with all the formulas for the entire workbook and would like to copy and paste the formulas from Sheet 1 to Sheet 2...Sheet 1 to Sheet 3 etc. without changing the cell referening in the original formula. I am not too sure how .formula works.

Sub CopyAndPaste()

' To copy formulas from Summary sheet to their respective sheets

With Worksheets("Summary")

.Range("R3").Copy Worksheets("2").Range("X3").Formula = Worksheets("Summary").Range("R3")

End With

End Sub

I have a spreadsheet where I enter text values in a cell, e.g. (.5 x .5) x 2 x .009. I want to find a way to automatically populated the cell to the right with the formula version, e.g. =(.5 * .5) * 2 * x .009 and format as three decimal place number.

One other question, is there a way to enter a template for entry in a cell. It would be nice if the text value above would take care of the parenthesis and multiplication signs for me.

I have a supply worksheet that is set up where the new data is added into a new column, so that the report extends horizontally. All of the pricing is in Column I, quantities are listed in the new column, and then totals at the bottom with the following formula:

=(SUM(AF7:AF10)*I7)+(AF12*I12)+(AF13*I13)+(SUM(AF15:AF18)*I15)+(SUM(AF20:AF23)*I20)

When I copy and paste the cell, into the next column for a new order, it changes the quantity column from "AF" to "AG", which I want it to do, but it also changes the pricing column from "I" to "J". I then have to go in manually and change all the J's to I's. When I copy the just the formula, it keeps everything the same, and then I have to manually change "AF" to "AG".

Is there a way to copy and paste so that the pricing column stays fixed within the formula, but the quantity column changes?

I need to copy a formula that is entered into a cell via a macro and copy it down to the bottom of my data. Now the ROWS never change but the Columns change every week as new data is needed to be entered. The code I am using to enter the formula is:

Dim MyLastColumnWip As Interger

Cells(3, MyLastColumnWip).select

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "= SUM(RC10-RC[-5]"

This works fine for that specfic cell but i now need to copy it down. An example of my spreadsheet is:..............

how to make my macro copy ONLY the Value it finds in a cell, and then paste ONLY the value into another cell on another sheet, while retaining the DESTINATION cells's formatting, font, size etc... I know how to do all of that except get it to copy and paste ONLY the values and not the cell size, formatting etc...

I have a spreadsheet that calculates a rolling percentage of a row of numbers. The formulas are contained in two columns, J and K. The first row is a header row, and the formulas repeat every 52 rows (e.g. J2:K53, copy paste those cells, re-paste at J54, then J106, and so on. Because I don't know how to loop, I've had to manually right in the paste every 52 rows in my line of code. Surely there is a way to have this cut down and to actually stop when there are no more rows of data. For the record, this continues on manually until 80,000 because I don't know how to stop it at the last row.

Code:

Sub CopyPasta()

'

' Copy_Paste_52 Macro

'

'

Range("J2:K53").Select

Range("K53").Activate

Selection.Copy

Range("J54").Select

[code]....

I would like a formula or macro that would recognize an answer to a question and populate a group of headings in another sheet.My thought is it would be copy and paste related.

Specifically, =If(sheet1A1=2013, then show January 2013, February 2013, March 2013 etc in Sheet 2A1-A120.

I would have all these months written out somewhere else to be copy and pasted.

I have a situation where I have to curve fit data, this can lead to different formulas being used with varying constants.

Is it possible to pickup a TEXT based formula and related constants from other cells, and then place this into another cell as a functioning formula. For Example

Cell A1 contains the formula as a text string whether it be y=a+bx+cx^2, or y=a+b/x, etc

Cells A2:A6 contain the individual constants, a, b, c, etc

I would then want the VBA to read the text based formula and put it into an output cell as a functioning excel formulae.g

In cell B10: =a+b*A10+c*A10^2

I understand picking the constants up and putting the formula should not be too much of an issue, however trying to insert the variable form of the curve fit is the part that I am struggling with, and am unsure if possible.

I am attempting to copy the results of a formula in a column to a row. The data in the column is in a different worksheet. Although pasting the data using the transpose option in the drop down menu works, I really want to have the results of the formula returned. The reason for this is the results are variable based on the formula.

We have many spreadsheets in my lab. We have been using them for YEARS. Two days ago we ran into a bizarre problem. If we copy a formula and paste into adjoining cells we get the following

Init Values Formula copied & Pasted Results in B column

A column B Column

10 =A1* 10 100

15 =A2*10 100

20 =A3*10 100

If you copy Range("B1") and Paste it to Range("B2:B3") you get 100, 100, 100 NOT 100, 150, 200. If you click on range("B2") it says =A2*10 but the value 150 does not appear in the cell. If you manually type a formula into each line, the results are what one would expect. If I open a new workbook, copying and pasting works as always.

From time to time the data on worksheet x changes and it is picked up by worksheet y and I need to copy and paste the new information to sheet z. I've been fiddling with the code to get it to paste the values and pick up the new values, but it won't.

I need to adjust the code to copy to the last column, and the last row, and copy just the values. Ifm unable to do t his.

I've attached the sheet so you'll see that the data will only copy once.

Go to worksheet z and press the command button.

I got the code from this site: ...

I have a vlookup which checks another sheet and imports data. The formula is as such:

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(B17,Data!A$1:$C$40,3,FALSE)),"",T(VLOOKUP(B17,Data!A$1:$C$40,3,FALSE))) .

The problem I have is when I paste and amend data on sheet Data! it changes the formula to

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(B17,Data!A$1:$B$40,3,FALSE)),"",T(VLOOKUP(B17,Data!A$1:$B$40,3,FALSE))) .

How do I prevent it from doing this?

I need to copy certain columns from one sheet to another sheet based on a formlua on the date.

So, on 'Master Sheet' I have a column called 'Date'.

I would like a formula, or macro, which does the following.

If date (column D) is over 2 weeks old (today's date - 14 days) then copy columns A, D, S and T to another work sheet called 'Not Attended' and paste them into columns A,B,C, and D.

I have a workbook with ~80 sheets. One sheet is a summary sheet containing data from each of the other sheets. The formula to display the data is pretty easy, but I need a function to copy the formula but increment the worksheet reference in each cell.

For example:

the formula in one cell is ='17'!$AI$6

The next cell should be ='18'!$AI$6

and so on...

I have about 12 columns like this, so I really don't want to edit each of them individually.

I'm working in Excel 2010 on a sheet that will be compiling data from a different worksheet based on the current month. I'm using the formula:

=IF(INDIRECT($K$7&"!C45")>"",INDIRECT($K$7&"!C45"),"")

to complete the field using the other sheets value if it's not empty, where $K$7 references a worksheet name based on the previous month.

It's working just fine, but I want to copy and paste it into other cells having the referenced cell, C45, change as I move it around the sheet (if I copy and paste it 3 cells to the right it would become =IF(INDIRECT($K$7&"!C48")>"",INDIRECT($K$7&"!C48"),"").

I haven't been able to find a way to make the C45 cell reference dynamic while copying and pasting. It would save me a ton of time if I could.

I am trying to find a way of copying values from cells that are linked to another workbook and paste them to another sheet in same workbook to the end of last row entry. This needs to be done via VBA from a button. There are 35 rows and 9 columns linked to another workbook and they don't always have values (depending on source workbook). To cycle thru each row and copy if they have values and paste them to end of last used row on another sheet.

I am trying to get the formulas to work on Sheet 3, the rows formated to percentages correctly, but they are not reading the totals in row 2 to make the formula complete. I also want this to run more than one number, I would prefer a range for example value >= 1.29 so that Sheet 3 shows all items less than 1.29.

I want to automate the following steps when cell A8:A11 changes in sheet "InfoAA":

(1) clear contents and formats of cells A1:A4 in sheet "InfoBB"

(2) copy cells A8:A11 of sheet "InfoAA" (which are formulas) and past it as text in cells A1:A4 of sheet "InfoBB".

(3) then automatically run a recorded macro named "BoldFirstName"
