I'm trying to automate creating certain keyword combinations I need, based off of the values I input into reference cells in columns A - E; the goal is to compile a list of keywords which I will then use to track my rankings in search engines.

I'm looking to only output 500 keywords, so some of the cells in columns A, B, C & E will not contain data (column D will always have a primary Geo-target listed). This results in some of the concatenate formulas I've created outputting partial data (i.e. if there is no data in cell A10, and cell D2 contains the word "Knoxville", then cell I10 will output the data, "Knoxville "). How can I setup conditioning formatting or a formula so that these auto-generated cells appear blank if one of the reference cells has no data within it?The reason why I need the above to work is because I want to setup a formula that automatically counts the # of keyword combinations created by the data entered into any of the reference cells. With the partial combinations being listed, it skews my data. Which leads me to my next question: what is the best formula for counting the # of cells containing a full keyword combination from any of the cells listed in columns G - O (minus the data in the header cells; i.e. G1, H1, etc...)?Lastly, is there a formula I could use that would then aggregate all of the full keyword combinations within the "Complete Keyword List" column (column P)?

Is there a way that you can keep formulas from showing 0's. I want the

totals to only show when the value is < 0

how can I hide my excel formulas all at once. I know it can be done by pressing F2 on the cell then F9 and then hit enter, but I have to do for each cell,

I'm looking for to hide my formulas all at once, without going through each cell.

I am using a lot of linked reports that have to be rewritten each month. For example smaller formulas look like this:

=('S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$228*2)+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$262+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$292

What I want to do is extract the file path from the above formula and make it a composite of several cell references.

So what I need is to have a cell where they can change the month and another where we can change the year. So I set up several named cells that look like this:

_MONTH =11 November

_YEAR =2013

_JOBCARD ='S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING

_PATH =_JOBCARD & _YEAR &"" &_MONTH

I tried several versions, I am hoping for something like this:

=('_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B$228*2)+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B$262+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B$292

I've found a few macros that will automate changing cell references from absolute to relative and they work great. However, when I run the macros on formulas that have references to another worksheet or workbook, the macro will not work correctly.

View 9 Replies View RelatedI'm using Excel 2007 and I'm a VBA novice.

Problem: The macro will be assigned to a command button and will be used by laypersons when they finish filling in data on a worksheet in Workbook 1. The sheet contains maybe 30 columns and 50 rows with a mix of fixed values and values generated by Vlookup and Indirect formulas. I need to copy the sheet from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2. Workbook 2 will be for archival purposes so I want to convert all formulas to fixed values. The catch is dealing with some cells that contain hyperlinks to PDF files...

Current Solution: I currently do this with a macro that moves/copies the sheet from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2, it then selects all cells in the new sheet in Workbook 2, copies all cells, then pastes-special "as values" to the exact same cell locations. This works great for me since the cell formatting and data in the sheet are VERY irregular and I have merged cells all over the place. This method keeps the exact formatting I need maintain:

ActiveSheet.Copy After:=Workbooks("Workbook2.xlsx").Sheets(1)

ActiveSheet.Cells.Select

Selection.Copy

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _

:=False, Transpose:=False

Application.CutCopyMode = False

The problem is that a few of the cells have hyperlinks with "friendly names" and I lose the hyperlinks when I convert to values. The hyperlinks are not inserted directly, they are created by a formula, =HYPERLINK("N:Filepath"&C16&".PDF", "Click_For_PDF"), and the row and column that contains the hyper link will vary for each sheet I want to migrate from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2 using this macro. I want to keep the hyperlink active with the clickable friendly name in Workbook 2.

Possible Solution: I'm open to all types of solutions, but is there a way to essentially use my existing macro but AFTER converting to values with paste-special, go back to the original sheet in Workbook 1 that still contains formulas (or maybe a temporary duplicate sheet I migrate to Workbook 2?), search for all cells with a "value" of "Click_For_PDF", copy ONLY those cells and paste (normal) into the corresponding cell locations in the sheet in Workbook 2 that now contains fixed values? ALL of my hyperlinks have the friendly name "Click_For_PDF" so it should be an easy way to identify the hyperlink cells. The cell location of the hyperlink copied in Workbook 1 needs to carry over to Workbook 2 and I said before, the row and col vary with every sheet I want to archive with this macro.

First, to i change the attributes, select the appropriate cell or range and then choose Format, Cells. In the Format Cells dialog box, click the Protection tab and select Locked or Hidden (or both). Unlock cells that accept user input, and lock formula and other cells that should stay unchanged (such as titles). To prevent others from seeing your formulas, lock and hide the formula cells: The results of the formulas will be visible, but the formulas will not.

Now, to protect the worksheet, choose Tools, Protection, Protect Sheet to bring up the Protect Sheet dialog box. but its hideing the formulas. once i protect the cells it wont let me to edit the worsheet (eg- cell height, cell width)

I am new to programming in excel. For example user enters the value 1 in A1 and 2 in B2 The answer should be in 3 in C1. How to write this code ? Also is there any way where i can let the user copy the VALUE from the result (C1) into another Sheet in case if am using + Sign to obtain the result in C1 instead of writing a VBA Code.

Basically i am looking for the user to in put data in A and B and the result should come in C like wise i want the user to input the values in few rows and the user should get the result in the respetive rows under column C. The user should copy the values from C into another work sheet/ work book. The user should not have access to the formula but should be able to input values and copy the result. can i do this without vba code if so how ?

HI you know any macro to hide formulas in cells?

I am running Excel 2007 on Windows Vista Business 32 bit. Recently I have noticed that if I enter a formula into an empty, unsused cell, it is recognized as a formula. If I modify that formula, it is then recognized as text and does not work as a formula. The only way I can get the cell to recognize a formula is to delete the cell and start over. This same scenario does not occur on previously stored workbooks. I have checked all of the flags that I know about, including the Options function.

I am trying to create an inventory list that automatically updates the supply quantity when items are taken away from inventory. I have created entry cells where the quantity of items taken out of inventory can be entered (example, cell F2 of the attachment), and the new overall inventory count is adjusted accordingly for each stock of items (example, cell B3). These automated adjustments are repeated for each subsequent row for every time items have been taken from inventory and recorded.

I managed to get it to do what I originally intended with exception of the fact that it still present values on rows where there were no activity - or quantity of items taken from out of inventory (row #6 and beyond of the attachment). Is there a way of "hiding" these values without removing the formula, or possibly set conditional formatting where no values are displayed if no changes in inventory has been entered?

Using Excel 2010

I am developing a spreadsheet that, once all the code is run has numerous sheets added. On these sheets I have a significant number of rows that contain no data and could be hidden (I dont want to remove them, because later I need to re- import all these rows back to my master sheet). I tried code I found in the forum to hide a row if it is empty but this doesnt work as some of the cells contain formulaes referencing back to another sheet that is hidden.

I am trying, and failing, to write code to hide a row that contains no actual data, but still has formulas in some of the cells.

I have a spreadhseet with various functions on it and what I am trying to do is this.

Cell E4 returns a >35 or <35 true or false value

Cell G4 is either blank or has "Yes" text type into it.

What I am trying to do is get cell F4 to return certain arguments.

E4 = >35 and G4 is blank I want it to state "Email Hiring Manager"

E4 = ,35 and G4 is blank I want it to state "Wait"

I have a basic IF formula that returns this

=IF(E4>35,"Email Hiring Manager","Wait")

Then if cell G4 is populated with a Yes the formula needs to overwirte the origonal if with the return arguments of

=IF(G4="Yes","Email Agency","Email Hiring Manager")

If yes then what would be Email Hiring Manager (yes will only be input if E4 is greater than 35) will be overwritten with "Email Agency"

Can this be done with two If formulas or does there need to be 3 or more to count if other IF formulas are actually returning a value?

If you have a cell with the value ="2*c2+3" NB: (Notice the ""), then to make excel convert the formula in another cell to =2*c2+3 (notice the removal of ""), so that it can calculate the value of the cell instead of showing a textstring?

I have formulas in a column and they are working unless I edit them to include another function, more cells, whatever, then they display as formulas instead of the result. I've gone to Tools --> Options --> View and the Formulas box is not checked. As well automatic calculation is on not manual.

2006 In Kind Time = $2,500

2007 In Kind Time = $2,500

I need to create a list of results based on a system entered on by a user with data already there. The first number they enter is the UCN (a number) then either indicate if it is a rail road or not. The values for this is Y or N. I need to have it where if they put Y then a certain formula is calculated and if they Indicate N then I have another formula calculated the results are put into the APN column. I also need to have it where I don't get an error if I have either of the cells (UNC or Railroad) ...

I uploaded a sample file of what I have so far : Book2.xlsx

I've got an Excel 2003 sheet where column E has a 6-digit code input into it. I'm able to right a function off that code that outputs if E2 (for example) equals 123456 then H2 outputs "Dog," if E2 equals 123457 then H2 outputs "Cat," and so on until I reach the max of 7 nested functions. Problem is, I have a lot more than 7 codes that I need to analyze. This Excel sheet will be used every two weeks, with lots of codes input that need to have what the code means output. I created a named formula called "part1" where: =if(sheet1!E2=123456,"Dog",if(sheet1!E2=123457,"Cat", etc. It didn't work when I had $ in front of E & 2.

All variables in "part1" work when tested where H2 = part1. I created a "part2" with more variables, checked each and it works too. My problem now is that when I have H2 set to =if(part1,part1,part2) to test all the variables, it'll work on any variable in "part2" but not in "part1."

I tried doing Ctrl + ~, but it did not work

View 14 Replies View RelatedIf I need to replicate a formula in some cells, I usually drag it down or sideways. Is there any easier way to do this? I have large numbers of cells into which to drag the formula. Can I specify which cell range the formula is applicable to (i.e. A1:A10,000 or something) instead of dragging? If so how?

View 5 Replies View RelatedSomeone here wrote up this code for me which converts cells with formulas to a new formula (It adds a division to the formula in the cell). It works great with one problem. If the code is rerun multiple times it doesn't check if there is a division added already and just keeps adding and adding to existing formula. For the last our I tried to add a check to the code. Something along the lines "If cell already has "/H2" inserted" skip to next cell. But nothing is working.

Here is the code I'm working with:

Sub Macro2()

Dim MyRange As Range, NewFormaula As String, Delim As String

Dim Cell As Range

Dim MyString As String

Dim Format As Range

Dim ws As Worksheet

Is there a work around to pull data from cells in excel to another tab with standard language? For example the template language will stay the same except in example A's case the last sentence "0.0" hrs will vary based what's sitting in B34.

It's stating the formula is too long. Is there too much text?

Sometimes the link would be in the middle of the text as shown in example B below with dates 00/00/00.

EXAMPLE A

For any leave of absence that is granted for more than 10 days, time off is governed under the Disability Bank Policy. Under the Disability Bank Policy there is a 10 day elimination period which must be satisfied prior to gaining access to your disability bank. During this 10-day elimination period, you are required to use your sick time for the first 6 days (48.00 hours) and vacation time for the remaining 4 days (32.00 hours). After this elimination period, we use all the time accrued in your disability bank. Currently, you have a disability bank balance of "00" hours.

EXAMPLE B

After this disability bank is exhausted, you will use all remaining and future paid time off balances from your vacation/CME/holiday banks. Because your leave begins in 00/00/00 and ends in 00/00/00 we will advance you future paid time off balance thru 00/00/00. Once those balances are exhausted the remainder of the leave will be unpaid. Per our policy, should you not return to work, you agree to pay back any time advanced to you within 30 days of your separation from the company.

On a spreadsheet, I want my formula to caculate the following: if "certain cell" = "certain name", then do this calculation, if "certain cell" = "certain name", then do this calculation....and so on.

I have a drop down list of employees, which would be "certain name" and it is in a cell, which would be "certain cell". The calculation I want to do is if it is a certain employee, I want to take the manually inputted hours in another cell and multiple it by the employee's rate of pay, which would be it's own calculation including labour burden. I have 13 employees that I want to have as part of this. So, if the first valuation comes up false, it carries on to the next and so on until it finds one that matches. I have tried IF commands, but it is too long, so I tried to split it, didn't work. Tried lookup and it didn't work. Tried named formulas, didn't work. It is entirely possible that I am totally on the wrong track or in over my head, but I know this should work.

I'm looking for a way for Excel to combine formulas together into a more compact form for me.

Attached is a very simple version of what I want, my actual formulas are very complex but I'd still like a way to have them automatically combined into a single cell.

Alternatively, what is a good way to break down a very complicated one-cell formula and still keep things organized?

Here is the one-cell version of a formula I work with.

[Code] .......

That formula is difficult to work with in one cell, so on another sheet I have it broken down into parts so that if one part isn't doing what I want I can change it. This takes up a LOT of space because of the other steps I do (the above formula is just one step) and I'd like to combine it together.

I'm trying to copy and paste this formula to multiple cells and am having difficulty doing so without everything in the formula changing.. SUMIF(Bankroll!Q14:Q6000,U143,Bankroll!Y14:Y6000)

I only want the U143 to change to U144, U145, etc. Yet when I copy and paste down the sheet it changes the Q14:Q6000 and the Y14:Y6000 values as well. I've been having to go through and paste the formula one line at a time and then manually change the U143 to the current U cell that I want it to represent in order to keep the rest of the values the same. Is there a faster way than this?

I need 2 different formulas to generate commission reporting information on the Summary tab of the attached sample Excel file. The first is highlighted in green. For these cells, I need a sum formula that reports the total commissions (column H of the "Data" worksheet) for items Ordered in the month listed in column B of the "Summary" worksheet, but not invoiced until the month listed in the column D, E & F headers of the same worksheet. Date of item order can be found in column A of the "Data" worksheet. Date of invoice can be found in column E of the "Data" worksheet.

Now, the problem that I think I am going into is the way Excel handles dates and times. All columns and data highlighted in orange on the data sheet need to be maintained without being changed, as eventually I am going to have a report setup by our operating program drop in there so that it automates the information without any additional labor by our employees who have varying levels of Excel proficiency. Unfortunately, the report from our operating program cannot simply list a date without a time. Feel free to create any column or field to the right of the orange columns in order to complete formulas based on those orange columns. I will just lock those cells when finished so that coworkers don't accidentally blow the shizel up.

The second sum formula that I need is highlighted in yellow on the "Summary" worksheet. Basically, I need a formula that sums all commissions in column H of the "Data" worksheet for those items that are cancelled AFTER invoicing. Column D of the "Data" worksheet lists the cancellation date. There are explanations for each of these on the worksheets for quick referral.
