Link Formula / Update Formula Automatically

Jul 31, 2006

Iím working on quite huge spreadsheets. The same formula will be used on more than 30 sheets.

So far if I have to change the formula in one cell I have to go to each sheet and change it manually (which is quite boring and time consuming).

Iím wondering if itís possible to reference all the formulas on the sheet to one sheet (which some kind of a master sheet with all the formulas).

I can copy the formula with the ďPast SpecialĒ function but the function is not updating if I change the formula on the main sheet.

So is it possible to link it and that itíll be updated automatically when Iím changing the formula on the main sheet?

Link Formulas Don't Update Automatically

Sep 10, 2006

I have 2 WorkBook, Division.xls and Department.xls. The Sheet1 in the Department is linked & getting the values from Sheet1 in the Division & works fine. But if there is a change in Division workbook, its not affecting here immediately. When i close the Department.xls and open again, i can find the latest values. I thought the links to the other sheets or workbooks will be updated when i press the save button. So I used the SendKeys "^S" in the VBA. But it fails. Is there any way to mention through VBA code to update the recent values to the Department workbook from Division.

Update Link Between Sheets Automatically And In Sequence

Nov 1, 2013

I have a excel workbook with One Master Sheet.

The data entered in the master sheet is automatically updated in the sub worksheets through direct links created . Each sub worksheet is a branch of organization. almost 100 branches are there.

The data is entered for all the branches in the Master Sheet at different periods continuously which is to be kept as such.

For example In first day 10th, 15th branch data may be entered in master sheet first and second row, which is getting automatically updated in the respective branch worksheets. But the problem is when the data is entered for any branch( for example 6th branch) in 5th row of Master sheet, in the respective 6th branch sheet also, it is updated only in 5th row only, leaving the first four rows blank. But i want the updation in the branch sheet continuously without any blank rows.

For updation i have used the simple direct link between the cells of Master worksheet and Branch sheets.

How to get the updation in branch worksheets while entering the data in Master sheet without any blank rows.

Cell Formula: All The Links To Update Automatically

May 3, 2006

I am linking to cells on a spreadsheet and in some cases the formula is showing in the cell and in others the contents of the linked cell. I have forced updating (F9 )and F2 enter with no effect. Is their something i am missing as I want all the links to update automatically. If I copy and paste a working formula into one of these cells it updates albeit with the wrong reference but if i go in and edit F2 etc then it shows as a formula.

Formula: Spreadsheet To Automatically Update The Latest Results

Apr 3, 2009

I've adapted a spreadsheet to automatically update the latest results.

But my formula (D11), that I got from here, has now stopped working.

I suspect this is due to the formula I've used columns H and I. But I have no solution.

Also the very similar formula used in M15 to M44 has also stopped working, probably for the same reason.

Formula That Uses Link In A Cell To Create Offset Link

Jun 28, 2013

I have two worksheets, one with detail monthly information and one with YTD information. So let's say the three numbers I want to capture in the YTD sheet are in columns B, G and I on the monthly sheet. January's data might be in B5, G5 and I5. February's data is in B12, G12 and I12 and so on.

On the YTD sheet in cell C2 I link to Monthly!B5 and in C3 I link to Monthly!B12 so cells C2 to C13 on the YTD sheet show the monthly totals from column B on the detail sheet. On the YTD sheet, cells C20 to C31 show the monthly totals from column G on the monthly sheet, so cells G5, G12, etc. And finally, cells C40 to C51 on the YTD sheet show monthly totals form column I on the monthly sheet.

In the past I've always created all these links manually. After creating the links in C2 to C13 on the YTD sheet, is there a way to use a formula in C21 that uses the link in C2 to create a link for G5?

Criteria / Formula To Automatically Replace Formula With Value

Oct 22, 2013

I'm looking for a formula or criteria within a formula to prevent a cell from recalculating or just causing it to revert to a value if another cell becomes populated. Something like =IF(NOT(ISBLANK(xx)),STOPCALC(xx),...

I'm trying to determine some weighted week to week projections and I want to be able to determine the accuracy of the projections without them being influenced by the actuals once they show up (the projections use historical actuals and related data which are all in the same range where the futures will come in). Also hoping for a shortcut to do what I described without having to manually go in and stop the (thousands of) cells from recalculating since the actuals for a given periodicity arrive staggered and not at one specific time.

Automatically Update Only With Numbers (ifnumber-update And Go To Next Cell)

Oct 18, 2013

Let's say that in column A I have numbers,"Yes" and "No". I want in column B to have only the numbers from column A, in the same order without any empty ranges, and everytime I add in column A a new number, column B to update automatically with that number. Let's have an example:

Yes 12
12 13
No 10

And if I want to add in column A:
Yes 12
12 13
No 10
13 25
No 15

So the column be will update automatically. I already tried =IFERROR(INDEX($A$1:$A$10,SMALL(IF(ISNUMBER($A$1:$A$10),ROW($A$1:$A$10)),ROWS(B$1:B1))-ROW($A$1)+1),") but using this many times get's my file very heavy and the excel is working slow.

Link Formula To Next Row Up With A Value Present

Feb 4, 2014

I've created a spreadsheet that I use to calculate weights of steel members for my job for estimate purposes. I'm trying to figure out how to save some time by not having to enter/copy/paste formulas every time I do takeoff for an estimate.

The bold green cells in column K are always linked to the yellow "Part Heading" above in Column A. As I do my estimates, I copy and paste a "Part Heading" with a "PL/Member" formula below for the next piece I'm working on. Every time I paste a new "Part Heading" with a "PL/Member" formula, I must change the formula in Column K to link to the next cell up in column A with a value present. In the screen shot, cell K/90-K/96 are linked to cell A/89. Cell K/83-K/87 are dependent cell A/82; K/74-K/80 are dependent on cell A/73, and so forth. Since each "Part" varies on total number of "Members", I can't seem to write a formula that will stick when copying and pasting.

My question is: Is there a way that I can automatically link each cell in Column K to the next cell up in Column A with a value present?

Removing One Link Out Of Many In Formula

Jun 23, 2009

Within my spreadsheet all the formulae are sums of cell references from 7 other documents. I now don't need one of the documents and therefore want to remove just that one link only from the formula. I would do it manually but I have hundreds to change! I have tried breaking the link to that one document but that removes the entire formula.

Using Link Formula And Concatenation

Apr 21, 2012

I have a formula in the target workbook in cell C3 =-'data.xls!'np2011'

However, when UI copy the formula to D3 , the formula remains as =-'data.xls!'np2011'

2011 after np is the year. The names in the source workbook have been named np2011, np2010, np2009 etc

np2011 is a range name in the source workbook. When I copy the formula to d3, it should change to -'data.xls!'np2010'

In the target workbook I have the years in cells C1 to L1. How can I get the formula to change when copying/ Alternatively can one concatenate the range name to C1 for eg such as ="-'data.xls!'np&c1&"' I have tried to do this, but cannot get it to work.

Formula Link Across Spreadsheets

Jun 12, 2006

I created a summary page for some reports I do and I'm having trouble keeping them linked together as my original data has rows deleted and inserted. There are 30 spreadsheets worth of information and I have them linked to a summary file. Each month I insert a new tab to each spreadsheet. I set up all of the formulas last month but see a problem this month when I copy and past the formulas to the new tab. On the 30 spreadsheets my data moves up and down so the row referenced in the summary formula is wrong. I am looking at having to type "=, click on original spreadsheet, select cell, enter, repeat" all over again. I pull 5 numbers from each sheet, and have multiple formulas to double check the math so I would be repeating this process over 300 times.

After all that, my question is...Is there a formula I can use that will pull this for me without needing to be edited each month. One idea I thought would work is to tell the formula to equal the first cell in Column B that is in red text and I could just change the font color on the orginial spreadsheet. But, I don't know how to make a formula say that or if excel can even do that.

Link By Formula Two Cells Within Macro

Jan 9, 2008

I have one list in one sheet that is source for the userform and combobox used on another sheet. With userform I make a choice and data is entered in one cell.
But is it possible to compare the choice that I make in combobox with the list on the first sheet and then make a simple link between these two cells, so that cell in the second sheet is always showing what is in the cell on the first sheet.
Reason for this is that items on the list on the first sheet sometimes change and I need to update the second sheet automatically.

Private Sub cmdOK_Click()

With Sheets("Presentation").Range("V18:V32")
Set c = . Find(cbochange.Value, LookIn:=xlValues)
If Not c Is Nothing Then
firstAddress = c.Address
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 2).Formula = firstAddress
Set c = .FindNext(c)
Loop While Not c Is Nothing And c.Address <> firstAddress
End If
End With
Unload Me
End Sub

Link Formula To Unopened Excel Workbook

Oct 14, 2012

Im looking to insert a formula in vba code that inserts the formula from a closed workbook to the active cell. At the moment i have this as an example of what i need:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "='[SRS 5FFBEP.xlsm]7%'!RC"

However the file part in square brackets [SRS 5FFBEP.xlsm] and tab 7% i would like to replace with a link to a cell reference that contains the file path as this needs to change and update so i would end up something like this:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=('" & Workbooks(Worksheets("SRS Files").Range("d29")).Worksheets("SRS Import").Range("c10") & "'!RC)

Note that cell Worksheets("SRS Files").Range("d29") contains the full file path (in text format) and Worksheets("SRS Import").Range("c10") is the link to the tab that reads the 7% (in text format).

As it stands the first set of code works fine however i need it to be able to change as previously stated. So what i need is to replace the file name and tab with cell references

Formula To Dicate Link Between Checkbox And Cell

Jan 8, 2010

I'm creating a spreadsheet which will have a grid of hundreds of check boxes (used to record progress on a project). In order to use the value of the check box in calculations, I'm linking each checkbox with another cell. So, if the checkbox is in cell F10, then i might link it with cell AF10, which is where the TRUE and FALSE indicators are.

If I copy the last row (which has checkboxes--let's call it row 99), and copy it below to expand the grid, the check boxes in the new row are still linked with row 99 cells (i.e., all the new check boxes in column F are still linked with AF99). So, presently I'm having to go through and manually re-link each pasted check box to a new cell.

Is there a way, using something along the lines of the INDIRECT function, where I can have a formula dictating what cell each checkbox is linked with, so that when I copy and paste a large number of these, they automatically point to the new cell (such that, F99's check box points to AF99, but if I copy this F99 check box into cell F115, then it would automatically be linked with cell AF115)?

If I have a two files called test1.xls and test2.xls for example. Is it possible to link test1.xls to test2.xls by putting the filename in a cell?

i.e. In test2 put the filename in say A1 and in the link put the path and instead of naming the file you want to link to put in A1 instead.

I know it doesn't work if you do it that way I was just wondering if there was a way to do it.

Extract Hyperlink Formula Link Address

Nov 17, 2006

Not sure if anybody has been succesful or not in the following but I am writing a macro to check that each hyperlink in my report is operational. My situation is as follows:

Cell A1 has the following hyperlink formula: =hyperlink(Worksheet1!B1,Worksheet1!B2)

I am attempting a workaround to capture the cell reference (B1) where the path and filename is stored and directing the macro to open the link. But when I try to send the hyperlink formula (Cell A1) to a string variable in vba, the result is the contents of Worksheet1!B2 instead of the entire formula.

Link Formula To File Based On Cell Value

Jan 22, 2008

I have a problem that may be a little bit diff. from must of the Readonly post that I have found here. Most people would like to have all of there files opened as readonly files, but I don't in this case. I am copying a number of files that has VBA code in just about all of them. I am using a CD writer to copy the files to a CD using Windows Explorer and that is working just great, No problem copying the files.

My problems comes in when I copy the files from the CD to another computer, all of the files are Readonly files on the new PC. I have not saved them as readonly and don't want them to be readonly files. Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening what I need to check or change to get the files to another computer without being a readonly file.

Link To Address Of Data In Other Workbook Inside A Formula

Nov 9, 2009

I'm trying to use some data from other workbooks in a formula. However, the path to the other workbooks we are using will often change.

I think that the user can enter the path to the other workbook in a cell in this workbook. However, I'm getting errors in my formula and am not sure how to make the formula use the cell to reference the location of the workbook that has the data that we want.

This is what I have, but it's giving me an error.

=Countif(' & 'Instructions'!B9 & Planning'!$I$3:$I$100, "C")

'Instructions'!B9 contains the location of the other workbook in the format \path[filename] Planning'!$I$3:$I$100 is the location of the range in the other workbook.
