# Count Back X No. Of Cells

Aug 18, 2008
I want to write a formula that counts back a given no. of columns and averages those cells.

Example:

cell P4 - 4 = cell L4

AVERAGE cell P4 to cell L4

To obtain the number of cells I am going to look back I will be using a VLOOKUP... So that number will be open to change.

I am using excel to analyze stock changes. Yahoo spits out a column with dates and another with closing prices but occasionally inserts a row showing a dividend, something like this:

Date Closing price

12/30/13 120

12/23/13 118

12/16/13 119

12/9/13 117

12/2/13 115

11/25/13 116

11/22/13 dividend 0.23

11/18/25 116

11/11/13 115

In the spreadsheet, column A is date and Column E is closing price, such that the cell in column E where the dividend is listed is blank.

The problem- as I update data each week, the dividend row moves. How can I consistently figure price changes for 4 weeks and 13 weeks without getting messed up by the dividend row? Is there to auto delete the row or make the formula count down 4 cells in the price column, while skipping any cells without data?

I have a spreadsheet that each month, we populate a new row of data. The rows are already set up in the spreadsheet, but we just populate the new row.

We are calculating a rolling 12 month total. Each month, we have to modify the formula below to pick up the last 12 months.

For example, next month we will populate data into cell M91, then we need to manually modify our formula to read M80:M91. Wondering if there is a way to have the formula below to look at a range, such as M100:M1, and count the last 12 months? This would eliminate us having to change this each month on several spreadsheets.

In Summary: I would like to replace the M79:M90 to count the last 12 months instead of changing the formula each month.

Here is the formula:

=(FVSCHEDULE(1,M79:M90/100)-1)*100

I have a layout something like the following:

A1

A2

A3

[Code]....

Where each (i.e., A1) represents a location. I have tried to use a coordinate system but this will not work for the back-to-back locations. (Assuming each location is 2 feet wide, For example A1 to C1 is 4 feet apart, not 2 feet (as Euclidean or rectilinear would calculate it as).

Would there be a way to incorporate an if statement for those locations that are back-to-back? As a rectilinear distance calculation would work as long as the locations are not part of the same "block".

Ultimately I am looking to have a matrix which contains all the distances between each location:

A1

A2

A3

B1

[Code].....

I am using Excel to fill in information for W-9 tax documents. I have formulas on one sheet that pull from other sheets where the numbers for the form are entered. Currently we have to put the actual form in the printer. I'd like to embed the form into excel so that the numbers pulled by the formulas and the form itself all print. The problem I'm having is I can not get the form to sit in the background. The cells are hidden behind the form and do not show up when printing.

The code brings up the message box the way I need it to

At the bottom of the code in the standard module is what I changed.

In the message box. If the GDT button is clicked the GDT chart opens. If the Symbol button is clicked the Symbol chart opens. This all works.

But will I select a symbol from the symbols chart it will appear in the cell that is double clicked. but then end up as a letter instead of a symbol.

But, the gdt chart works perfect.

I thought Cancel = True Would do the trick but does not. Any ideas what is missing??

This code below is in the sheet module

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClicK(ByVal Target As range, Cancel As Boolean)

ThisWorkbook.Unprotect

ActiveSheet.Unprotect

With Application

Cancel = True............

In the attached sheet I need to check on the Destination in column B, and if it matches set criteria, divide the figure in Column E by 2. eg If LAX is the destination, then for any rows directly under LAX until the next destination appears, column E needs to equal column D divided by 2. If the Destination is not LAX, then Column E equals Column D.

the difficulty I am having is that there can be a variety of row numbers for each destination. I am having trouble creating a formula that can basically work backwards from Row-1 in column B until it gets to a text string, and check that text string against the criteria. so it may be row -1 up to about row -9 dependant on the number of flight times available to each destination throughout the week.

Median Indirect: I would like to find the median in a range of cells and then bring back the 2 adjacent cells

Range...............Adj Cell 1............Adj Cell 2

1.......................L1......................L2

2.......................P3......................P4

3.......................O9......................010

So the median of the range is 2, thus we would want the formulas to bring back P3 and p4

Column 1..............Column 2

P3...........................P4

I need to count the number of equal cells in col D beginning at the top of the column. The counted cells must begin with a text prefix of "Category:" without the quotes.

Some but not all of the cells in col D begin with a prefix of "Category:" without the quotes, followed by a word or words following the word "Category:" See examples below. All of the terms prefixed with "Category:" in col D are in alphabetical order. I need to count the number of identical cells in col D with the "Category:" prefix.

Examples of the contents of cells in col D with the "Category:" prefix are as follows:

Category: Adversity

Category: Answers

Category: Assurance

Category: Blessings

Category: Build

Category: Change

Category: Children

Category: Choices

Cells above and below cells with a prefix of "Category:" in col D are not adjacent.Cells above and below cells with a prefix of "Category:" in col D are separated by 3 to an undermined number of rows.

I need to count the number of equal cells in col D and insert the count in col A at the last equal term. For example, col A above would have 93, 1, 1, 5, 10, 8, 3, and 12 inserted into col A.

I believe I need a loop code to do what I need, because none of the functions I've tried have worked. I want to start at B2 and go down the column until I come to a YES. When I find a YES, I want to know the number of NOs that preceded it. Then I want to go from that YES(#1) to the next YES(#2) and count the number of NOs between YES(#1) and YES(#2) and so forth, until I run out of rows. For example, in C5, the answer is 2, because there are 2 NOs between YES#1 and YES#2 in coulmn B, and a 1 in C7, because there is 1 NO between YES(#2) and YES(#3) in column B.

I'm a newbie to these forums, but I had a question that I couldn't find an answer to in the search feature. So, I joined and here I go....

I have a whole lotta data (nearly 600 "pages" of data) that I pasted into Excel. Unfortunately, it's formatted poorly and I'd like to make it nice and purty.

What I started to do was to create a 2nd sheet and then do an "=" and then click the spot with the 'group name' and then another "=" underneath it and then clicked the spot with the 'premium' info, etc.

After a couple of these, I figured that I could simply make a formula to help me out with it. Please see the attached screen captures for some detail on my issue.

Can someone help me create a formula or a way to count a certain cell and then 52 cells underneath it and display it?

I have spreadsheet with different 100s of columns of dates with 600 rows. The first row identifies which zone the data belongs to (North, South, East, West. NE, SW, SW1, etc...)

I want to write a formula to check how many dates in each column fall in 2015 or later years; This can be accomplished by writing a countifs formula.

Where it gets complicated is once i filter on the Zones;

I want the formula to give me the desired result - count of all CELLS where the year is 2015 or greater - WITH FILTERS ON.

I stumbled upon following sumproduct formula that gives count for visible cells, however when i apply the date criteria, i get incorrect result -

=SUMPRODUCT(SUBTOTAL(3,OFFSET(IJ3:IJ999,ROW(IJ3:IJ999)-MIN(ROW(IJ1:IJ999)),,1))*(IJ3:IJ999>DATE(2014,12,31)))

I have this formula which is counting the number of cells in a column that fall within each calender month.

However, if there is a formula at the bottom of column B and C that yield a "", the formula breaks.

In my workbook, B/C:133 have a formula =""

I will need the formula in column E to work if there is a formula that yields a "" in column B and C.

I used Sheets(1).Cells(1, 1).Rows.End(xlUp).Count instead of UsedRange.Rows.Count in this code , but it didn't succed with me. Why and how to do that

Dim i As Long, j As Long

j = 1

For i = 1 To UsedRange.Rows.Count

Sheets(2).Cells(j, "a").Value = Sheets(1).Cells(i, "a").Value

Sheets(2).Cells(j, "b").Value = Sheets(1).Cells(i, "b").Value

Sheets(2).Cells(j, "c").Value = Sheets(1).Cells(i, "c").Value

j = j + 1

Next i

I am looking to create a macro that will create a new sheet when data is added on a summary sheet. Example.

1. Summary sheet called "Variations" contains columns that will contain the information needed for new sheet (Columns A to D)

2. When data is entered on "Variations" sheet: Column B, then macro automatically creates new sheet renamed to e.g. VO1 (Number used on "Variations" tab) and is a copy of "Master" tab.

3. Data entered in Column A to D on "Variations" tab is automatically entered onto new sheet created (e.g VO1). Shown is blue on attached file. Additional data is updated on "VO1" sheet and this then links back to "Variations" tab

I'm trying to develop a new daily timesheet for my production workers, where non-production items are recorded in 15 minute intervals. The user would put in "Clock in" by the corresponding time, and the same for "Clock out" at the end of the day. Any non-production items will be type in next to their appropriate time. Since clock in and clock out times will vary, I need to set up a formula that searches the array of cells for the day, finds the "Clock in" and "Clock out" values, and counts any blank cells in between them. Basically the blank cells will equal production time, and the result of the Count function will be multiplied by 0.25 to get the hours.

I am having a very difficult time finding a way to set the "Clock in" and "Clock out" cells as the range for the Count function, because it won't always be the same cells. What would be the best way to automatically have excel find the cells containing these values and set them as the range criteria for a Count function?

The formula at the bottom was one of my initial attempts, but it didn't work. I took out the '=' for the screenshot, so that wasn't the problem.

I want a unique count of sequences in a different for that class only if that particular row in 'A' or 'B' is populated. The result set should be as follows:

All data is located within one book. I have two sheets with material codes in each sheet which include pricing (existing and current)

Sheet1 (has existing material codes plus existing pricing) Has about 1200 lines

Sheet2 (has current material codes plus current pricing), has about 36000 lines

I need to cross check if the material code (taken from sheet1) are still available in sheet2, and if they are, copy the current price back to sheet1. The current price needs to be pasted back into sheet1 (next to the existing price). If the material code doesn't exist (for whatever reason, in sheet2), the program needs to move onto the next line and leave the current price for that material code blank. The program should finish once all the lines in sheet1 are completed. I have attached a sample of what I'm trying to do,

I have tried to figure out how to count all cells in a column and subtract any cells that contain characters with a red font. I'll attach an example. I need code that will work in VBA so that in the case that the column does not contain any cells with red numbers it won't come up with a debug error.

In excel I normally do this manually with this formula: =count("") I normally highlight all cells except the red ones. See attachment for example.

Also, the # of rows is never the same. Some files will be 100 rows, some will be 1000, depending on the store's file we get. so the code would probably have to contain something like .lastactiverow or something.

1/2/01 .66

1/3/01 .77

XYZ

2/1/01 .88

2/2/01 .99

2/3/01 .44

2/4/01 .23

I need either VBA or an Excel function to count the cells in column B between blank cells and put the result of this count in the (formerly) blank cell. For instance, 3 would show up next to ABC and 4 next to XYZ.
