# Look Through A Sheet, Find A Text Reference, Then Bring Up Something In A Cell

Jan 13, 2008

I'm in the leadup to my A2 ICT controlled conditions piece where i have to make an Excel system. My chosen subject for this is to use the school house points system. I'm going to make a system where the results of house matches are inputted and points are awarded accordingly.

I just have a couple of queries after looking at my initial designs.

1. Is it possible to get excel to look through a sheet, find a text reference, then bring up something in a cell located in the same row? For example, for it to locate one of the House team names, then go along the row and find the ammount of house points they have in order to make a total for them. Is this also possible over a number of sheets? (In order to keep a running total on a separate sheet).
E.G. House, Games Played, Wins, Losses, Draws, House Points

2. For the house cross country event they use a different system which differs from everything i have designed. What i basically need to do is be able to use a drop down against each finishing position where you can select one of the four house teams, then it takes the points won for that finishing position and puts them into a table.

## Reference Sheet (return The Value Of Cell B2 On Whichever Sheet The Text Of A1 Says)

Nov 1, 2009

If I have a cell that has as its contents as sheet name, is there anyway I can use the cell's address to reference that sheet?

As an example, say I have in Sheet1, cell A1, the text Sheet2. And let's say I want to return the value of cell B2 on whichever sheet the text of A1 says. So, on Sheet1, I might have this:

## Find Range Of Part Number And Bring Back Value 0 If Match Or Value Of Another Cell

Sep 4, 2013

I need a formula to check a range of parts and bring back a value of 0 if matched or the value in another cell if it doesn't match.

Part number H-200-3
Part number H-200-3-A
Part number H-200-3-B

If I enter any of the above part numbers then cell B1 returns 0 if it is a different part number then B1 would need to match cell A1.

## Macro Run Copy Text From Active Cell And Find That Value In Another Sheet

Dec 16, 2008

I would like to create macro, where it would on macro run copy text from active cell and find that value in another sheet (in column H) and select that cell.

What I did is this:

## Make Macro To Bring Tables From Another Sheet To Cover Sheet?

Jul 8, 2014

I am trying to take the tables you will see in the dummy page on the second and third sheet and have them output onto the first sheet based on the parameters of the drop down menus. Is there a way to have a button on the first page that controls a macro to do this?

## How To Bring Up Find (Ctrl-f) In A Macro

Dec 13, 2013

Been using this code...

Sub Macro2()
'
' Macro2 Macro
' Macro recorded 11/28/2012 by Doug Garn
'
'
Dim Rng As Range
Set Rng = Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.Offset(0, 3))
Rng.Select

[Code]...

What it does, I hilite (put focus on 1 cell) a cell and it copies that cell and 3 more to the left, switches to 2nd xls file, pastes that, puts the cell focus on next line, then goes back to the first sheet and I just have it select a random cell(s) so it does a Ctrl-F properly.

Problem is the 3 ways I have above to bring up the find box aren't working for me. It won't find anything and I don't understand why. And I hope I explained this correctly.

## Find Median In Range And Bring Back Adjacent Cells

Jun 25, 2014

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

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

## VLookup To Find The Customer And The Dates And Then Bring Me Back An Asterisk In A Separate Column

Jul 27, 2007

I have 2 spreadsheets. One is a promotion calendar that lists the dates that promotions on a certain product runs. The other is a shipment grid of shipments of that product to the customer.

I want VLookup to find the customer and the dates and then bring me back an asterisk in a separate column to show me that that certain week that product was delivered was a promotion week. The problem I have is using Vlookup to lookup 2 things at once (and if they match to the promotion calendar) and return me an asterisk.

Here is my formula now:

=IF(VLOOKUP(J2&" "&L2,'East Data'!M:AU,2,FALSE),"*",0)

J2 is the customer name
L2 is the week
"East Data" is the spreadsheet with all of the promotions and customers.

## Bring Picture In Front Of Text For School Report?

Dec 11, 2013

I work as a data administrator in a high school in England. I've only been doing the job for about 8 months but a lot of the processes we go through could be better automated via the use of macros in Excel and Word.

Basically we have school grade reports that come from our MIS database that are stored as a Word template, which are then exported into Word as an .xml file. However, they don't come with the photographs of the students on the reports, so we have a Word List Report with every student photo (split into year groups) and run the following macro, which allows you to pick a folder where the reports are stored and match the photo to the report via the school admission number. It is then inserted into the report using a Word bookmark to place it in the top left corner.

VB:
Sub InsertPhoto()
Dim myFile, myFileNewName As String
Dim PathToUse As String [code]....

This works fine but I would like to be able to automatically format the photos so that they have 'In Front Of Text' wrapping, which we need to keep the templates from messing up. It would also save me accessing nearly 1000 school reports and manually editing each photo.

## Bring Data From Sheets Of Varying Length To One Main Sheet

Apr 17, 2012

I have a workbook with several sheets of varying length (amount of columns). The length of each sheet changes every week. I want particular data from the sheets to come together on one sheet in as organized a fashion as is possible. I'm currently losing my mind copying and pasting every week when I need to update the thing.

## Returning Cell Value From Sheet 1 Based On Cell Reference From Sheet 2

Oct 29, 2013

In Sheet2 I have a list of cell addresses showing values such as D5, D32, D59, D221, D869 stored in cells AB7:AB16. In Sheet1 the "D" column holds dates. I want to return the corresponding date for each D# cell into Sheet2 in column AC7:AC16. I'm unaware of the proper syntax for this. I though it would look something like:

='Sheet1'!('Sheet2'!(AB7))

however that doesn't work.

## How To Turn Range.find Into A Cell Reference

Dec 9, 2009

I am writing a function that opens up an external excel document, identifies a string in a certain range and then i also want it to return a cell reference for that string including the number of rows beneath the cell that the string was found in.

## Find Cell Reference Containing Specific Value From Current Position Up

Jan 29, 2009

I'm having some difficulties in defining my formula. I'm pretty sure that this should be possible.
I have a table containing values and dates. For each change in dates, I should summarize every value for that date. I cannot use the autosummarize function, because I do not want the sum to be beneath the values, rather in a column to the right of the values.

I have created a formula which checks for a change in date: =IF(C15=C16;0;1) where the C column contains the dates. Basically I say that the Index column should contain a 0 if the date is the same as previously registered, 1 if it is a new date.

The index column is used in some conditional formatting rules, so I would like to keep it anyway.

## Macro To Find Value From One Cell In Sheet And Find In Another Sheet

Mar 27, 2014

I am trying to look up a numerical value in Sheet 1 Cell:F7 and find that value in Sheet 2 Column B, then offset 29 columns in the row where the value was found. The number will not have any duplicates within Sheet 2.

## Index Match Offset - Find Contents Of Reference Cell

Jun 21, 2012

How can I modify the following formula to find the contents of reference cell, for example if the cell reference (G\$3) is equal to 9 I want it to use 8 instead.

Code:
IF(ISERROR(INDEX(tra!\$E\$2:\$E\$1100,MATCH(G\$3,tra!\$C\$2:\$C\$1100,0))),"",
INDEX(tra!\$E\$2:\$E\$1100,MATCH(G\$3,tra!\$C\$2:\$C\$1100,0)))

I tried using G\$3-1 but this doesn't appear to work.

## Cell Reference To Another Cell Using Sheet Number Not Sheet Name?

May 22, 2012

How can this be done?

E.g. say I want to create a list of cells each referencing to the first, second, third sheet, and so on.

Say, on one sheet cell A1 references to the second sheet's A1, cell A2 references to the third sheet's A1, and so on.

Ideally I'd love to be able to write something like
=Worksheet(1)!A1
=Worksheet(2)!A1
=Worksheet(3)!A1

and so on.

## IF.. Contains...then: Search Through The Text String In That Cell And Find A Certain Word, Find And Retrn A Value

May 23, 2006

I am having trouble getting my IF statement to test if the cell contains the text "sale" return "X" if not "Y". I need it to search through the text string in that cell and find a certain word, and if it finds that word, retrn a value. I am really having difficulty with is what symbol or function do I use for the logical test? (i.e. =, <>, MATCH, INDEX?)

## Reference A Sheet Name In A Cell

Jun 4, 2007

Is it possible to have a sheetname reference in a cell?

A1 = "Exhibit A"

and have a formula as such?

=IF(\$A4"",(IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(\$D\$2,' Exhibit A'!38:38,0)),"x","")),"")

where the sheetname in bold is pulled in by a reference to cell A1?

## Sheet And Cell Reference

May 7, 2008

I have an IF statment that looks at a sheet but I would like it to look at certain sheets I.E. sheet 2,4,5,6.

Sub SelectPrintArea2()
For Each ws In Worksheets
If Range("Sheet4Q5").Value > 0 Then
Range("A1:AA47").Select
ws.PageSetup.PrintArea = "\$A\$1:\$AA\$47"
ElseIf Range("C5").Value > 0 Then
Range("A1:M47").Select
ws.PageSetup.PrintArea = "\$A\$1:\$M\$47"
End If
Next ws
End Sub

But it will only look at the sheet it is in and not any of the other sheets. I've tried to tell it which sheets but I just get errors.

## Cell Referenceing (display The Value In The Cell Offset By X So I Can Bring The Numbers From Sheet1 Over)

Jul 17, 2009

Sheet1 is a list of names, then a few columns of numbers.
Sheet2 contains calculations based of the numbers in sheet1.

Each sheet from 2 on is names after the names in sheet1 column A...
A large cell at the top of each sheet contains the formula to display the sheet name:
=MID(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1))+1,255)

So what I want to do now is...
in cell, look for the cell in sheet1, and display the value in the cell offset by X so i can bring the numbers from sheet1 over.

In plain english the cell would say like...
"look in sheet1 for "Name" then display the cell next to it"

I know to look in the next sheet its "=Base!B2" if i wanted b2 on sheet base.
I know to use "=OFFSET(Base!B2, , 1, , )" too look at B2 and go right 1 column.
But the issue is i dont want Base!B2.. i want whatever cell in Base column A that has the text that A1 has.

## Using Vlookup To Find Text On Different Sheet?

Apr 14, 2014

I know vlookup can find specific text in a column when the formula resides on the same sheet. But for my actual application (a 15 page price list) I was attempting to use vlookup on sheet 2 and have it find specific text on sheet 1. Note that sheet 1 will be having additional rows added through out the table over time, so vlookup cannot use a specific cell location.

My attached example can simulate the problem by sorting the table by name (A-Z).

## Find Text Then Paste To Different Sheet

Jan 19, 2009

I have a pivot table that changes in size from day to day. The last row of the table starts in Column A with text "Grand Total". I need a formula that searches and identifies that text, then copies that row, and pastes the row to another sheet. note: the sheet the pivot table is on is titled Price Detail, the sheet I need to paste the row onto is titled sheet 2.

## Macro Used Textbox In Worksheet Rather Than Cell Reference As Criteria To Find Matches

Sep 26, 2013

This is a continuation of thread 182629 [URL] ....

The End User wanted originally to type characters into cell C1 of a worksheet that the macro searched for in another worksheet, copying across every row containing the input.

The responses gave me the following code which worked perfectly:

VB:
With Sheets("PICKLIST")
myFind = "*" & .[c1].Value & "*"
End With
If myFind = "*" & "" & "*" Then Exit Sub

Unfortunately, the user NOW wants a Text Box instead of putting the characters into a cell.

I added a textbox (originally called 'TextBox2' but renamed "Choice") and "Dimed" CHOICE As Range.

Then tried the following code:

VB:
With Sheets("PICKLIST")
myFind = "*" & CHOICE & "*"
End With

But it generates a "RunTime Error 91" - Object variable or With block variable not set.

## Find Column Number From Search Pass To Integer Cell Reference

Jul 21, 2007

I am building a Workbook which takes data from SheetA and inserts it into SheetB.
Part of the data is only entered when a positive value exists.

I then do an export from SheetB.

The problem is that I need to get the column number and pass it to the cell reference based on the field name in row 1.

Dim sFindstring As String
Dim rFindcell As range
Dim iR As Integer
Dim iC As Integer

sFindString = " Find this string in the cell"
'Using cells find the findstring
Set rFindCell = Cells.Find(What:=sFindString, After:=[A1], LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious)

'OK so look here
iR = 3
'I am trying to pick up the column number
iC = rFindCell.Column

rFindCell throws an object or with block variable not set error. Is there some property that I need to set.

## If Any Cell Is (red) Has A Color Index Of 3, Bring The Whole Row To The Top

Jul 9, 2009

I have a worksheet with several columns and 1,000's of rows. I have code that makes all "good cells" grey (color index 15) and all "bad cells" red (color index 3).

I would like to do 2 things...

1. If ANY cell is RED, cut the WHOLE ROW and "insert cut cells" below the header row (even if ALL other cells are grey), then repeat the process up the whole worksheet until ANY row with a red cell is at the top.

2. Create a new worksheet named "Trouble Cells", copy the header row along with any rows with red cells.

I would like to keep the formatting the same (for example, the title row is always yellow and is "28" high and all other rows are a height of "12").

I would also like to keep the column width of each column in the new worksheet as well.

## Use Text In A Cell For A Formula As Cell Reference To Create Range

Mar 10, 2013

I have a list of headings and items and I have a set of formulas that work out depending on the heading what items are listed.

Say theres 10 items and the heading starts at C4 and that heading has 10 items, so it puts "C5" as text in G1 and "C15" as text in G2 so i now know my cell range of items

How can i use the text in those cells to put in a formula to call that as a range?

If I use the indirect formula it shows me the value of the cell, but im after using it to reference the cell

## Reference From Another Sheet To Formatt The Cell

Nov 18, 2008

can i take reference from another sheet to formatt the cell? When i tried to format cell taking reference from another sheet, it says that you can not do that. Is it possible or not?

## Cell Reference Or Defined Name For A Sheet

Jan 13, 2009

I'd like to be able to refer to a cell or local scope defined name within my sheet that references another sheet, or accomplish the same functionality in some way.

For example, if I have a sheet MyInformation and then another sheet MyPrintedInformation, where the printed information sheet shows MyInformation in a more printer-friendly format, I might have this in MyPrintedInformation:

a cell or defined name that says (this doesn't work, but just as an example):
let's call the named variable TheSheetToPrint
='MyInformation'. Then from within MyPrintedInformation all of my references look like this

Some cell :

=TheSheetToPrint!A2

## Cell As Reference Anchor To Another Sheet

Oct 28, 2009

I have a problem how to do the next:

A1 cell contains title of some test

The next cells on bottom line (B2:B10) contains the results of the this test.

On another Sheet i want to analyze those results, thus I need the results from Sheet1 be copeid to sheet2. I want just to indicate the test name (A1 location) and the rest of the cells will be copeid automatically(relative reference, relatively to A1).
