# In CSE Sum() Function With If... Using A Named Range...

Oct 12, 2007

i have a bit of a problem with the sum() array function.

im trying to get the sum of an array based on 2 conditions.

my excel sheet looks as follows; i have 10 columns, which define also the names of these columns.

AccountLink - AccountLevel - Master_Sub_Account - Debit - Credit - Account_Type - Period - Project - ProjectCode - ProjectName

I want to sum for an AccountType the debit, where project is 3.

the formula i use is:
=SUM(IF(Account_Type=L24,IF(Project=M24,Debit)))
(with {} brackets of course, and CSE'd).
BUT, it is giving me a #NUM error.

why? (when i replace the column names with the actual ranges, i.e. F1:F211 for AccountType, it works)... could this be due to the fact that the named ranges are composed of the full columns or something? And, is there a way to solve it that it will work with these named ranges...?

## AND Function Not Recognise The Named Range

Jun 22, 2006

In the formula below the AND function cannot recognise the named range "KolomFFundering". I need the named range because when I insert a row the range must also change. Is there any way to rewrite this formula without losing it's function? The range of "KolomFFundering" is F13:F23.

=IF(AND(J12<>"";KolomFFundering<>"");"verwijder getal uit kolom 'hoeveelheid'";IF(KolomFFundering<>"";SUM(KolomFFundering);IF(P12<>"";P12/L\$227;"")))

## Select Which Named Range To Use In A Function

Oct 7, 2008

is it possible to change the named range used in a formula based on the value selected in a dropdown. I have 4 named ranges NR1, NR2, NR3 and NR4. I would like to have a VLOOKUP that uses the named range that has been selected in a drop down. So if I change the drop down option I would get a different result as it will be looking at a different range.

It is not possible to put all of the values together as one named range as the intention is that I would select the range on a hidden and protected sheet so people would only see what they need to but I only have to manage one master sheet instead of having to create a new sheet for each range.

## Indirect Function To Reference A Named Range

Apr 30, 2009

How would I used the indirect function to reference a named range in the workbook in formula creation.

For instance, if in cell A1 I have entered the text "Sales" which is also a named range in the workbook. Then in cell A2 I tried entering the following formula to sum based on the entry in cell A1 using the indirect funtion. For instance:

=sum(indirect(A1))

In this instance I was hoping this formula would then sum the amounts in the "Sales" named range. And, if I changed the text in cell A1 to "Cost" for instance (another named range in the workbook), it would sum the amounts in the "Cost" named range. Allowing for a dynamic formula based on the entry in cell A1.

I'm using Excel 2007.

## Use Named Range Name From Cell In Function/Formula

Apr 2, 2009

I have several named ranges with 4 column each. The named ranges have all the same names but with the tow last digits ranging from 00 to 50 by increments of 5 (ie 00, 05, 10, 15 etc.). The 4 columns for each of the named ranges have the following headings; 10, 100, 50 ,70. I have two cells with drop down lists with the list of the suffixes of the named ranges in cell e5 (ie 00, 05, 10, etc) and in g5 a drop down list with the 4 headings for the columns (10, 100, 50, 70)

I want to refer to these 2 values so that in column B, I can get the values of the column chosen for the given named range. For example, the column "100" for the named range THRESHOLD_10. In cell C1, I entered the following formula ="THRESHOLD_"& E5 which gives me the named range name. I entered the following function in the first cell of column B = index(C1,2,G5) but get a #REF! answer. If I write the following formula =index(THRESHOLD_10,2,G5) I get the right value.

how to get about it, and indirect(C1), but still gets a #REF! message. When I evaluate the formula, the named range appears with quotes "" which might be the reason that it cannot work. I am nearly there...but for the syntax and cannot get that working!

## Reference Non-Contiguous Named Range In Function

Feb 14, 2008

I have a split named range covering non-contiguous areas, ie:
Name: status_web
Range: =\$F\$14:\$I\$122,\$F\$700:\$I\$746,\$F\$798:\$I\$830,\$F\$905:\$I\$933

This appears to work fine when selecting the name however it returns a #VALUE! error when using it in a formula, eg: = COUNTIF(status_web, "*p*"). Is there any way to get this to work, or do I need a separate named range for each contiguous section? NOTE: Not sure whether this extra fact would through a spanner in the works, but I am referencing this named range from a separate workbook.

## Passing Named Range Into User Defined Function?

Dec 4, 2012

Passing Named Range into User Defined Function

MrExcel.com | Excel Resources | Excel Seminars | Excel Products mcm91201

Depending on time of day and computer I am sitting in front of I am using:

WinXP Pro SP2 with Excel 2003
Win7 Pro SP2 Excel 2007
Win7 Pro SP2 Excel 2010 on PC
Win7 Pro SP2 Excel 2010 on Mac Mini running Boot Camp
OSX Excel for Mac 2011

I have only tried this on Win7 Pro SP2 Excel 2007 but need it to work on all.

I enter the values 0, 1, 2 ... 89, 90 in cells A1 to A91

I select A1:A91 and name the range 'angle'

I create a user defined function:

Public function sindeg(value As Double) as Double
end

I want 'value' for the function in a cell to be replaced by the corresponding value in the same row (or column) in the named range 'angle'. For example (using commas as column separators). This works for Excel functions like sin, cos, radians, etc.

********** Worksheet Contents **********

A1 = 00, B1 = sin(radians(0)), C1 = sin(radians(A1)), D1 = sin(radians(angle)), E1 = sindeg(0), F1 = sindeg(A1), G1 = sindeg(angle)
A2 = 01, B2 = sin(radians(1)), C2 = sin(radians(A2)), D2 = sin(radians(angle)), E2 = sindeg(1), F2 = sindeg(A2), G2 = sindeg(angle)
A3 = 02, B3 = sin(radians(2)), C3 = sin(radians(A3)), D3 = sin(radians(angle)), E3 = sindeg(2), F3 = sindeg(A3), G3 = sindeg(angle)
......
A91 = 90, B91 = sin(radians(90)), C91 = sin(radians(A91)), D91 = sin(radians(angle)), E91 = sindeg(90), F91 = sindeg(A91), G91 = sindeg(angle)

Column A = input. Columns B, C, D, E and F all calculate the same value by row. Column G fails with a #VALUE. In row 1 the value of angle[1] = 0 therefore column D = C = B = sin(0) = 0. In row 2 angle[2] = 1 therefore B = C = D = 0.017452

How can I get the user defined function sindeg(value) in column G to accept the named range variable 'angle' like the Excel function radians(value) accepted it in column D?

This functionality should work horizontally as well as vertically. For example enter 'angle' A1 to CM1 then have sindeg(angle) filled from A2 to CM2. It should also work in the case where the named range 'angle' is a single cell.

I am sure that this is a simple variable type definition problem in my user defined function: should the input variable be defined as type Range? Or something more exotic?

The brute force approach is to have the function determine the input value by passing in the named range, working out dimensions, calculating offset between the cell the function is in and top (left) of named range, then counting down (right) to pick the correct value. However I cannot see adding all that code to EVERY function. Occam's Razor says there has to be an easier way since Excel built in functions seem to do it readily.

## Function Is Not Valid On Dynamic Named Range Chart

Apr 20, 2007

I have seen one of your posts in which you make a graph update based on dynamic named ranges. Here is my problem, I already defined the name of my ranges as:

ChurnDiario =OFFSET(Clientes!\$E\$25,0,0,1, COUNTA(Clientes!\$E\$25:\$AH\$25))
Ejex =OFFSET(Clientes!\$E\$8,0,0,1,COUNTA(Clientes!\$E\$8:\$AH\$8))

The issue is that when I tried to enter the values and category (x) axis with:

Values: =offset(ChurnDiario,0,0)
Category (X) axis labels: = offset(Ejex,0,0)

On both, excel replies “That function is not valid”. I’ve tried, but still can’t make it work.

## Determining If Cell Is Part Of Named Range And What That Named Range Is?

Aug 16, 2014

Let's say you have a named range, Rng1, which consists of cells A1 & A2. In vba how would you report back what, if any, named range the following cells resides:

Code] .....

here are multiple named ranges so using intersect is not feasible. Essentially, through code, I will be given a range and I need to determine if that range if part of a named range.

## Named Ranges On Multiple Sheets With The Same Named Range & I Cant Figure Out How To Do This

Jun 2, 2006

I need to create a named range on multiple sheets with the same named range & i cant figure out how to do this. EG :- I want to create a named range called "_SubUnitRows" on sheet1 starting from "A1:A50" & other named range again called "_SubUnitRows" on Sheet2 starting from "A1:A25" ...

## Making Named Range The Last Active Value Used Within Another Named Range?

Jul 19, 2013

I'm trying to make my named ranges remember the values of the last active cells used within another named range. The purpose of this is to make my charts dynamically change dependant on two criteria selected. My spreadsheet currently updates itself as and when I change the active cell within a single named range, dynamically changing the chart data by using Lookup based on the active cells value. However I want to get away from having several charts showing, I would like to have a single chart which dynamically changes based on a second selection. So the first selection is for a department (Facility) which changes the chart data relevant to that department, the second selection is to dynamically change the chart shown for the pre selected department.

Picture2.jpg

Using the following code when updating just one criteria with several charts

VB:
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)

If Not Application.Intersect(ActiveCell, [MeasureType]) Is Nothing Then
[valMeasurePicked] = ActiveCell.Value [code].....

which works fine but I'm not sure how to add a second selection criteria because my code uses Activecell. I thought that the VBA needed to set the last used value of a range as a variable and therefore allow the second criteria to be selected but am not sure how to put it into practice.

## Countif- Use A Named Criteria As Well As A Named Range

Oct 25, 2009

if I can use a named criteria as well as a named range. In essence what I am looking to do is count certain cells that meet the criteria in a certain named named range,

## Combine Two Named Ranges Into 3rd Named Range

Mar 14, 2013

Merge two columns into one list in excel

I would like to combine List1 and List2 into a 3rd named range called List3. I was wondering if this were possible without using any additional cells/columns (i.e. I don't want to use Column C like in the example shown in the link above).

Here's the formula from the example:

Code:

=IFERROR(INDEX(List1,ROWS(C1:\$C\$1)),IFERROR(INDEX(List2,ROWS(C1:\$C\$1)-ROWS(List1)),""))

I've played around with it, but could not come with any that worked.

## Copy/Paste Cell To Named Range Named In Adjacent Cell

Sep 4, 2007

I have read post re this question but have not been able to answer my problem. I get the error message 'Application defined or object defined error' when running the code below. I should indicate the range counter currently indicated about 6,200 rows that this code will work on and the individual range names in the list of 6,200 rows are spread over at least 20 worksheets.

The code appears to be running but after some time it stops on the line of code 'Range(Cells(i, 1).Value) = Cells(i, 2)'.

Sub PopulateWithImportData()
Dim counter As Integer
counter = Sheets("Imported Data").Range("Counter")

Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Worksheets("imported data").Select
Range("a1").Select

i = 1
Do Until i = counter
Range(Cells(i, 1).Value) = Cells(i, 2)
i = i + 1
Loop

## Using Named Ranges In Match Function

Apr 21, 2013

I have a table (approx 10 rows x 10 columns) that I am trying to lookup. I have to first look across the top of the table (cols 2-10) to find a name, then look down for a value (exact match) within than array and then find the corresponding value (in that position) in the 1st column. I have used 'name manager' to name these arrays (in columns, rows 2-10).

I have setup the names of the arrays with a drop down list (as per some utube videos). When I try to evaluate the match function (with the array name as a cell reference) i get #value. When I directly type in the name of the array into the match function I get a correct answer.

Should I be using other functions such as indirect, choose, etc instead?

## Networkdays Function & Named Ranges

Jun 7, 2006

I have named range in column A = holfrom and another in column B = holtill

When I try to use NETWORKDAYS(holfrom;holtill) I get an error VALUE
Is it even possible to use this function with named ranges

## Find Matched Value In A Range For Named Cell Then Copy Range Cells Below

Aug 6, 2013

I need method, using a button, that looks at a cell--say EO2, for example--, looks back on a master worksheet at a specified row and range for a match, then looks at the information from a specified range below the matching cell (The information in this column will either be blank or have an "X" in the cell), and then those rows that do not have an "X" will be hidden in the corresponding rows in the working worksheet. Therefore, if at any time the value in "EO2" ever changes, then it will automatically find a new match and repopulate and hide information as before. About 130 columns will have its own button so that a "query" can be made that depends on the information in a particular cell in that column.

The master worksheet now has matrix of 287 rows and 58 columns. Each row is for an operating procedure and each column shows a job code. An "X" in a coordinate cell for a column/row shows whether that job code is responsible for knowing that operating procedure. So, on the working sheet, an employee's primary job code is given underneath his or her name. When the button is pushed, all the operating procedures not required for a given person will be hidden and only the required ones will remain visible--grouped, if you will. Qualification dates will be easier to see now that the information is consolidated. Whenever someone transfers to a new position, a new code will be inputed on the working sheet. When the button is pushed, a new grouping will result. Any operating instructions that overlap will still have qualification dates, so that information will not need to be transcribed.

## Dynamic Named Range Sort Including Cells Outside Defined Range

Apr 3, 2008

Im sorting a dynamic range as mentioned in this Sorting a Named Range. My range is called drWarningTypes and is defined as:

=OFFSET(DataSource!\$A\$2,0,0, COUNTA(DataSource!\$A:\$A)-1,1)

When there is only one cell in the range, then running the following sort function includes A1 also in the search (and also adjoining columns).....

## VBA To Get Average Of Range Of Cells Based On Named Range In Different Column

Apr 10, 2013

I am trying to calculate some averages. What I have is 3 columns of data in A, B, C, also the "tasks" in A are in named ranges ex: "Award Contract" is a named range - "Task_Award" and "Confirm Updates" is a named range - "Task_Updates". I've attached a sample excel sheet.

I'd like to be able to create a macro to evaluate column A, and for every row in range "Task_Award", give me the average of the corresponding cells in column C and put it in the same range of cells in column B , then, for every row in "Task_Confirm" then give me the average of the same range of cells in column C and place the result in the same range of cells in column B. This is my very first post so I hope I am doing this correctly. I have 77 of these task ranges to evaluate and it will take a long time to do it manually. I'm thinking of a loop function.

## Creating Named Range Taking Avg To Date Of Dynamic Range

Jul 15, 2014

I have a column of data that keeps getting new information in it. what i need is a named range that i can use for a chart, first point in the named range will be the first value in the column, second point will be avg. of point 1 and 2, then 3rd point will be avg. of 1,2,3 etc.

## Get The Range Address Of A Dynamically Named Range That Refers To A Formula In VBA

Aug 10, 2008

I have a named range that expands and contracts based upon the amount of data that is in some column. Call it AllData_UsedRange.

I have another named range that actually refers to a range. Call it AllData.

Column A
Row2 56
Row3 44
Row4 65

AllData is a named range that refers to the range A2:A65536
AllData_UsedRange refers to A2:A4 by way of this formula.
=OFFSET(AllData,0,0,COUNTA(AllData))

How to I obtain an address of AllData_UsedRange in VBA code?

These do not work...
Evaluate(ThisWorkbook.Names("AllData_UsedRange"))

## Stop Graph From Changing Named Range To Formula Range

Sep 8, 2006

I am trying to create a graph for a range of data that updates monthly (adding an extra month each time). I wanted the graph source data to update automatically each time the data is refreshed so used an OFFSET formula to identify a named range. I then point the graph to the named range as the source data.

When I enter the range as the source data the graph picks it up. However, when I re-enter the source data option on the graph it has converted the named range into a cell written range (ie. replaces "=QUALITY" with "='Front page'!\$B\$7:\$J\$10" - which therefore will not update when the range increases.

## Match Named Range To Range/Cell Address

Aug 25, 2006

I know that I can return the value of a defined name range, the address, and even the value of the define name, but if you are given a range address, how do you find its corresponding defined name in code?

## Convert Dynamic Range To Static Named Range

Sep 13, 2007

My searches have not produced anything that I could apply to this situation.

I'm trying to write VBA that would:

1. Search a Workbook for Dynamic Ranges.

2. When a Dynamic Range is found the code would:

A. Determine the current coordinates for the range.
B. Change the "Refers To" value From "=OFFSET...." To "=Worksheet_Name \$Column\$Row:\$Column\$Row"

3. Save Changes.

4. Close File.

My apologies but I have very little experience in writing VBA. I understand about variables, arguments, and IF/THEN but just enough to use functions within Excel.

## ABS Function And Named Array Formulas To Find Closest Value?

Feb 5, 2012

I am really struggling with the following formula:

MATCH(MIN(ABS(Ann_TaylorRegularBust-B4)),ABS(Ann_TaylorRegularBust-B4),0)

I am trying to find the cell in the named row "Ann_TaylorRegularBust" that is closest to the input bust size in cell B4. This formula works when I use actual range instead of the named array.

## Assign Named Range To A Vba Range Variable?

Jan 25, 2013

I have a named range, called SubjectNamesPastoral on a worksheet called Worksheets("Group to Teacher")

I can't assign the named range to the rngSubjectFamilyRangeOnSubjectUsedSheet variable in vba.

the first two lines of code work fine, the msgbox shows "E100:E105", happy days!

However when I try to assign the same range to the rngSubjectFamilyRangeOnSubjectUsedSheet variable, the debugger runs past the 'Set' line without error, but throws 'error 91' at the second msgbox.

VB:
thisString = "SubjectNames" & strSubjectFamilyOfGroup

Set rngSubjectFamilyRangeOnSubjectUsedSheet = Worksheets("Group to Teacher").Range(thisString)

## Named Range Returns Wrong Range

May 16, 2014

OK, I have a huge SS with lots of named ranges. Many of which are dynamically assigned lists.

All of the existing ones work fine, but when try to add a new named range, it returns the cells from a previously named range. (Always the same old one.)

example:

A range (one of many) is named "Shift_List" and is defined using
=OFFSET(info!\$C\$3, 0, 0, COUNTA(info!\$C\$3:\$C\$2000),1)

New range is created named "PN_List" and is defines using
=OFFSET(info!AA\$3, 0, 0, COUNTA(info!AA\$3:AA\$2000),1)

When I create a Data Validation List or otherwise use "Shift_List" as the source it works fine.

However if I do the same thing and refer to "PN_List", it returns the items from "Shift_List"

Any new named range returns the Shift_List cells, although older ones still work correctly.

## Dynamic Range Used Named Cell Range

Jul 7, 2014

Line of code that will Select a Named Range in this case I have Named a CELL "DataSummary" Need to use that named range by selecting 30 columns and 54 rows.

Range("DataSummary),(??,??) doesn't work.

## Sum Range Using 1 Column Of Named Range As Criteria

Dec 21, 2006

how to use SUM Formula a column from within a Named Ranges or Dynamic Named Range?
For example, if the range name "MyData" refers to the address: A1:G10, how could I sum all the numbers in column G of that range where column A meets certain criteria.

Eg., Column A holds fruit names:
Apple
Orange
Banana
Apple

and column G holds quantities of the particular fruit. I'd like to sum column G (quantity) for only those quantities that match "Apple" in column A.

## I Named A Range With The Name Box- Change The Range??

Jul 14, 2009

I'll attach an example.. I just can't seem to figure out how to update the range if I have already named it something using the Name Box to the left of the Formula bar.
