Link Tab Name To A Cell Without Using A Macro

Aug 17, 2009

Is there a way of embedding a formula in a worksheet so that the tab name of each worksheet is linked to a value in a cell on that sheet? (I don't want to run a macro)
In other words if the cell name is changed, the page name changes automatically.

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?

Macro Create A Hyper Link Once Data Is Entered Into Specific Cell

Aug 17, 2009

Is it possible to have a macro create a hyper link once data is entered into specific cell, i have a multi sheet work book used as a stock card system.

Each stock item has its own worksheet and the product code is entered in to cell E3
(which in turn has a macro in it to change the sheet name to match the product code).

the macro also inserts a row of info into row 5 of another sheet used as a summary sheet ( CONTROL.SHEET or SHEET 4) using copy and paste link.

i need a macro to generate a hyperlink in cell D4 of the control sheet between the row info and the matching product code sheet ( the product code is displayed in cell E4 of the control sheet.

I only input one item at a time and then manually cut and insert the row info into the stock list on control sheet. so every time i input a new item, the row info is always in row 5 of the control sheet.

Using Data From DDE Link In A Macro

Nov 4, 2008

I wonder if it is possible to bring data from DDE-links to variables in a macro without first bringing it to cells in Excel. The reason why I want to do this is because I only need the data when the macro is run (that is when a certain button is pushed). It would be a waste of system resources to continously link the data to cells in Excel. I asked the same question a few days ago at another forum but didn't get any reply.

Create Macro For DDE Link

Apr 5, 2006

I am using an excel add-in to create a DDE link between a market data provider and my spreadsheet. ( Add-in is called SigTools.xla )

DDE link works fine and target cells are updated dynamically as market data changes so my excel sheet values are changing constantly.

The formula =WinRos|LAST!GOOG will update target cell with most recent market prtice for Google.

Since this formula is not an excel formula I can't reference excel cells with formula - ie =WinRos|LAST!Indirect&A3 or anything like this won't work.

I thought a Macro might work to simulate "typing in correct formula" and I created following Macro which I thought would work but unfortunately it does not.

Sub Macro2()
'
Dim strSymb As String
strSymb = Cells(4, 1).Value
Application.Goto Reference:="TargetCell"
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=WinRos|LAST! & strSymb & "
End Sub

The idea was that Macro would behave just as if I typed in =WinRos|LAST! & strSymb & and substituted the symbol name contained in Cells(4, 1) - whatever that happenned to be.

Seems reasonable but I get an error "Application-defined or object-defined error"

Alternatively I could re-type the formula each time but it would be much better to somehow reference a specific symbol in a particular cell via functioning Macro.

Can I Link 3 Buttons To 1 Macro

May 11, 2007

Is it possible to link 3 buttons to one macro.

What I'm trying to do is have 3 buttons:

Load Button:
-Which makes a copy of the current sheet, renames it, and freezes its values

Print Button:
prints all the sheets

Clear button:
deletes all of the named sheets

I'm sure this can be done with an if then else statement, but I'm just not sure how to set it up to capture input.

Macro To Link Information Between Two Worksheets?

Jul 11, 2012

I need to link information between two sheets.

In Sheet2 I have a list of products with their description in adjacent columns such as prices and other information. Sheet1 is a MasterSheet of some of the products listed in Sheet2. So I would like to write a macro that links the information of the product from Sheet2 to Sheet1 if I type the products name in Sheet1 (MasterSheet). The list of products (Sheet2) is updated in a regular basis, so by linking the info I would just need to update Sheet2 and Sheet1 would update as well.

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
Do
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

Macro To Link Check Boxes To Cells

Feb 8, 2008

I have a spreadsheet setup which includes a number of checkboxes set up using the forms toolbar.

I would like to link each of these checkboxes (in sheet1) to a cell reference in sheet2. I'm trying to write a macro that will do this for me to save me right clicking, choosing format control etc for each checkbox.

I found the code on this page: http://www.mrexcel.com/archive2/51300/59643.htm
which appears to be similar to what I am trying to achieve. In this case it creates the checkboxes in cells B3:B20 and links them to C3:C20.

I have already created all the checkboxes, and wish to use a macro to link them (for example) to C3:C20 in sheet2.

Link Variables & Sheets In Macro To A Userform

Jul 24, 2007

I have a sheet with 3 macros. It consists of two macros to produce results, and the third to bridge the two together where is all starts. I have built a userform in the sheet and am trying to get the variables in both sheets, to be user changeable and selectable via the userform.

In the attached data, the userform allows for the selection of two sheets, A and B. The user would select in A the sheet with data which is equivalent to Oval_An and in B the sheet with the data equivalent to Oval_DMA. The first macro, Find_75 runs, followed by the second macro, kTest, all working to produce results when hitting the Subtract button on the form. The Find_75 tolerance are also defined via the useform box, as well as kTest's compare tolerance.

Link Cells To Chosen Workbook Macro Code

May 19, 2008

I am trying to write a code in VBA to collect data from several weekly workbooks, and list them up in a monthly workbook.

These weekly workbooks change names depending on the week, for example, we have:

Report week 1.xls
Report week 2.xls
Report week 3.xls
Report week 4.xls

Each report has the same layout, so the data I want will be in the same cells. However, as the report names change as the weeks in the year go on, I can't write the code for weeks 1-4 as they will not work with week 5 onwards!

I have found out how to chose a file of my choice using:


Sub GetImportFileName()
Dim FInfo As String
Dim FilterIndex As Integer
Dim Title As String
Dim FileName As Variant

' Set up list of file filters
FInfo = "All Files (*.*),*.*"

' Display *.* by default
FilterIndex = 5 ......................

Copy Or Link Formatting From Conditionally Formatted Cell To Another Cell?

Aug 12, 2014

I have a column who's content is determined via about 6 nested if statements from data on that row. That cell is then conditionally formatted to a certain color based on the text that is ultimately printed from the nested ifs (simply an extra visual legend for the text). All of this contributing info and about 1000 lines items make a very large and difficult to print page. What I am trying to do is a make a summary sheet that simply takes the index number of these 1000 rows and copies or links the conditional formatting of the mentioned cell onto this number on another sheet. I have already linked this status cell and put it adjacent to the index number which works well in that with two columns I can show the index and status but if I could combine the color of the status cell onto the index cell, it would be even better. I am pretty sure another conditional format for this summary sheet would not be possible or be extremely complex since the contents of the index cell I am conditionally formatting have no bearing on the conditions for the format. Was hoping there is some VBA magic that could simply mimic the conditional formatting from one cell and put it on another.

Link To Another Cell

Nov 17, 2008

I would like to have a link in a merged set of cells that puts the insertion point to another cell. Scenario: In cell k30, the user puts in the amount of credit card debt a individual has, and scripts the user based on that information. Later on, they get a more accurate running total of the amount of debt and need to change the amount in k30 for an accurate quote. After ther running total, in cell j172(a merged box for instructions) i instruct the user to be sure to enter the new total in cell K30.

Questions:
1. Is there a way to put a button or a link that would put the insertion point back up to K30 automatically, but allow the user to change it themselves and not change it automatically?

Use A Cell Value In A Address Link...

Mar 9, 2009

I have is a summary worksheet with two columns. One column is for Project ID number and the other is an address link to a specific cell in the worksheet corresponding to the Project ID. Perhaps the best way to explain this is by giving an example:

Project ID (Column 1)
00-111

Balance (Column 2)
='C:Financial Sheets[00-111.xlsx]Phase_21'!$H$1

As you can see the spreadsheets are named after the Project ID number. What I would like to do, if possible, is instead of typing in the name of the spreadsheet for each project in column 2 (Balance), I could somehow reference the cell value in column 1 (Project ID). Something like this:

Project ID (Column 1)
00-111

Balance (Column 2)
='C:Financial Sheets["A2".xlsx]Phase_21'!$H$1..........

I have a master list with everybody's name and picture that I copy and paste the pictures from when putting a team together. This has become a very tedious process.

Is there a way I can type the person's name on a team sheet and have their picture automatically appear below their name? I don't know if this can be done with some kind of lookup or if it will involve VB. I tried making the picture the background of an Autoshape or comment, but I could not figure out how to dynamically change the picture based on the name in a cell.

Lookup Cell Fed Via A DDE Link

Sep 12, 2007

I am trying to build a stock watchlist in excel 2007 with a dynamic link to a DDE server (paid for).There is no add-in or plug-in, I just CTL ALT & drag each code from a watchlist in the program I am using and place it in a cell, however can only choose one data field at a time. There are 14 data fields and over 150 codes in my list which makes 2100 cells. (My guess is about 3 days work)

I would like to just enter the stock code in say column A (A3) and with each DDE data field (e.g. lastprice, open, cose, high etc) entered in subsequent columns have it lookup the stock code in cell A3 and return the correct value based on the code in column A, rather than entering each cell individually.

Is it possible to write a macro or vba code to create the cell formula so I can just fill down and save myself 3 days work?

The DDE server I am using is formatted like this:

PROGRAMNAMElDATAFIELD!STOCKCODE

example

MISDATAlLASTPRICE!BHP.ASX

I thought I might be able to do something like the following, but it doesn't seem to work.

MISDATAlLASTPRICE!$A3

Note: The DDE server can only be accessed while the other program is running and is password protected
