Referencing Cells From Microsoft Query

Jan 26, 2009

I have a worksheet that pulls data from an ODBC datasource (import, External Data). The datasource is a SQL server 2005 database.

the query's sql is complex enough that it says it cannot be represented graphicly.

part of the WHERE clause fro my query specifies a date range for one of the date fields.

I am wondering if from within the SQL query in Microsoft Query I can reference the value of a cell. that way i coudl have the user enter his date range values in two specific cells.

Returning Data From Microsoft Query

Sep 7, 2009

I have a query which is giving me some trouble when returning the data from ms query. The query was written in mysql query browser and returns 2 columns of data - a date and a number. MS Query correctly processes the query but when the data is returned to excel only the second column is returned. Here is the query:

nc_view_date_functions AS l
l.week_of_year = d.week_of_year
AND l.yyyy = d.yyyy
) AS week_end_date,
count(r.consent_id) AS weekly_count
rg_resource_consents AS r
INNER JOIN nc_view_date_functions AS d
ON r.application_date = d.the_date
d.yyyy, d.week_of_year;

Column Sequencing Using Microsoft Query?

Sep 7, 2004

I used the Get External Data function within Excel and the query returned the fields in alphabetical order. I went back into the query and rearranged the fields into a more logical order, but when refreshed the query continues to return the fields to Excel in the original alphabetical order.

Am I missing something, or do you only get one shot at the order of the fields being returned?

Microsoft Query Multiple Parameters

Mar 12, 2014

I would like to have set of data as Parameter if possible.

Example: In Microsoft Queries I have two data sets. In first one shows let's say Item Number, and second one I should have table with components of all Item numbers listed in first table.

So first table I set one Parameter (?) and i get like 8 results. I would like that second table takes those 8 results (sometimes more or less then 8) as parameter and shows data (components) for them.

If I set sign '?' I can only select one cell as parameter, is there any way I can select multiple cells as parameter and use it like SQL function IN ?

FROM 1.1.1 1


And second table should look for results in first table under 1.COMNR and select it as 2.ITMNR

FROM 1.1.2 2

Returning Data From Microsoft Query To Excel?

Jun 23, 2013

I am trying to use queries I have been running in MS SQL Server Management Studio, to return data in Excel where it would display as pivot. Some queries I was able to use through Excel but few others are not returning anything.

I am doubting it has something to do with the query itself - but they are displaying results properly in MS Query, they are just not returning any data to Excel.

Microsoft Query :: Put Floating Date Range In Criteria

Jun 21, 2007

Is there a way to put a floating date range in the criteria much the same as can be done in excel ie greater than Today() but less than Today()+3? I don't want to keep going in and adjusting the query if I don't have to and if I don't keep the range tight there is too much data.

Excel 2013 :: Creating Two Tables That Can Reference With Microsoft-query

Jun 28, 2013

I don't have Excel 2013 so unfortunately I can't easily create relational data in Excel 2010. I'm looking for a solution to a design problem. I'd like to have 2 tables which I can join with Microsoft Query and run pivot table reports.

My department processes payments, both for internal clients and external clients. My Payments table looks like:

Date | Type (internal/external) | Operation (what type of payment) | Method (internet, mail, etc) | Quantity

Additionally, I have a table for Mail Opening, which looks like:

Date | Employee | Operation | Quantity

My overlapping fields are Date and Operation. Using each table individually, I can get nice pivot table reports. What I'd like to do though is be able to not just see what operations and methods were run each day with what quantities, but also to compare that to how much mail was opened. Employee and Operation is a multi-multi relationship, so when I join by date, I end up getting incorrect numbers because of problems with the data layout. I'm open to changing my data structure, as I know the way it's set up right now isn't great, but I'm having a mental block on how to redesign it. I attached a sample workbook.

Microsoft Query :: Show Start Dates Greater Than Today/yesterday

Sep 29, 2009

I am importing data that contains specific start dates and I was wondering how to filter the criteria in Microsoft query to only show start dates greater than today or perhaps yesterday. This would eliminate all entries that have already occurred. It seems I can only select a date in the criteria that exists in the data.

Excel 2003 :: Referencing Cell As (MS Query) Value?

Jan 22, 2013

We have a query, that looks at an external data source (db2 i believe). It will pull all data under a certain product set, and as an additional Criteria we currently have Serial Number.

Now, if the value entered is the serial number, lets say '1234567' for example, it will happily pull all instances of that into the table.

However, what I would like is a cell where I can enter the serial number, and the query will look at the Criteria, the Value will reference a cell (where we can type any serial number), and it will then populate it! I thought that would be fairly intuitive even for a complete novice like myself - now I am likely to have nightmares about Function Errors!

What I have tried:

*Setting the value to a cell ref... ie instead of '1234567' i have set the value to =$a$1 and in that cell i have a serial number.

*Tried to create a parameter. So value of [Serial Number] I then get a prompt saying "Enter parameter Value (serial number) - Regardless of if i type a cell reference (ie =$a$1, or i input the actual serial that worked before when it was '1234567' I still get a function error!

I keep trying different permutations of things, but I am ill prepared.

VBA To Update Cells With Data From Microsoft Access Table

Jun 30, 2009

I have a spreadsheet and an Access database that contain the same items and prices. The database and spreadsheet are on a server shared drive. I would like the spreadsheet to automatically update its list of items and prices from the Access database whenever the spreadsheet is opened. Right now, we update the item and price list on both the spreadsheet and the database but I want to just update the database and have the spreadsheet pull the updates from the database.

Highlight/Flag Formula Cells Referencing Other Cells

I am trying to write a macro which highlights all the cells with any reference to other cell. The macro should highlight a cell with formula like = 3 * A25 but not highlight a cell with following formula. = 3 * 0.4535566. 'Hasformula' property is not useful here as it can't distinguish between above examples.

Lock Cells Based On Value Of Other Cells - Code Simplification Query

Apr 22, 2009

I'm using the code below to lock certain cells depending on the value of other cells. The code below deals with one line of my spreadsheet only and as the spreadsheet comprises 38 data entry rows I've repeated this code 38 times in the worksheet module with the appropriate changes to row numbers.

It works, but causes much screen flickering and "thinking". I'm new to vba so no doubt I've made this code too extensive or lengthy or whatever (or just plain wrong).

Can anyone assist with suggestions on how to simplify the code and/or help with code to handle all 38 lines without repeating the routine 38 times?

Referencing Cells Not Next To Each Other From A Formula?

Mar 26, 2014

I have a long list of amounts one per day. Sun-Sat repeating. I Total the amounts for each week and place it next to Sun. now i have the total for that billing week.

I need to reference these numbers from a different sheet that only has one row per week. I tried to do ='sheet1'!a2 then next row down ='sheet1'!a9 and ='sheet1'!a16 etc then fill down but when i do it seems to start again and do a3, a10 and a17.

Is there a way I can get it to only use cells with figures in them? IE if cell is empty then move down one else use the amount in cell... or how do I get it to reference 7 cells below each time rather than the next immediate cell.

Referencing Blank Cells

Jun 8, 2009

I would like a formula that checks for blank cells only between C1:C10 and E1:E10 and then insert the first and last names of the person associated with these blank cells (which are located in A1:10 and B1:B10) on another worksheet, which for the sake of argument can be called 'sheet2'.

Referencing Cells In Another Sheet

Oct 4, 2009

I need assistance referencing cells in other sheets. I have a summary tab which I would have each refenced sheet listed (named for the activity being billed). In a separate cell in the summary tab, I want to bring back the value of the total amount billed for that activity. The total value is in the same cell of each sheet, as all invoice tabs needing to be referenced are identical in layout.

There is one hitch to this, the sheets referenced have not yet been created (that would be too too easy), and the activity list in the summary sheet has place holder names that will change when the activity being billed is defined (hence prompting the biller to create the sheet to be referenced).

Referencing Non-blank Cells

Say I have a column with cell values 4, 0, 0, 5, 0 , 0, 0, 2, 0, 3

What I am trying to do is have in the next column a formula which returns
the number adjacent to it multiplied by the number of blanks between it and
the next non-blank cell.

So, for the example above, the output would be 8, 0, 0, 15, 0, 0, 0, 2 etc

Referencing To Cells Next To A Given Cell?

Nov 20, 2008

My current worksheet is being built for use in Eve-Online, a game I play. In specific, I am keeping track of profit made by manufacturing different items in the game. I am trying to build it like this:

Column 20 is a list of items, and the next 7 cells to the right of each item contain the mineral requirements for that item. So C20 says Bantam Frigate, C21-C28 will all contain numbers. Now, I am trying to create a function in the upper-right cells (like A1-A8) where if I type in "Bantam Frigate" into A1, A2-A8 will fetch the numbers that I put into C21-C28.

Now, I will be working with thousands of items, so I have to make sure I name both the 'database' and the query exactly right, but that's not a problem to me. Can I make something that will reference a value from (cell+1 column right) or (cell+2 columns right)

Referencing A Row Of Cells In A Column

Nov 24, 2008

I have a row of cells on one "Sheet1." I am trying reference these cells into a column on "Sheet2." I know I can reference one cell at a time, but I have a large number of cells in the row on Sheet1 and I know that there has to be an easier way to do it, I am just not excel-savvy enough to know what it is.

I know you can copy and "paste special" (transpose), I am just wondering how to do that while referencing. I have heard that the "offset" function can be used, but after extensive trial and error, I haven't figured it out.

Referencing Empty Cells?

Jul 13, 2009

I have set up a spreadsheet in order to track and calculate the number of students we teach at our organization. It is running prohibitively slow when entering new data. On one sheet each individual session is entered (the school, program, date, number of hours etc.) This is the Session worksheet.

On the next sheet(the Program worksheet) the maximum number of students for each unique program (this is usually a combination of school and the program) is calculated to ensure we are not counting students we teach weekly as new students. This is calculated using a formula:

"Session!G:G" = the unique program name on the Session worksheet.
"Program!A2" = the unique program name on the Program worksheet.
"Session!D:D" = the number of students in that individual session...........

I currently have 3 sheets 1, 2,and 3.

Data is input onto sheet 1, this is copied into sheets 2, no real problem there. However i need to enter data onto sheet 3 and if that data appears on sheet 2 i want the line, not just the cell to be coloured on sheet 2. The data on sheet 3 will not be in any specific order in the column

I have tried conditional formatting but keep getting a message to say it cant be done and offering a formula which i dont understand.

Not Referencing Cells Correctly

Dec 8, 2008

I'm trying to simply reference a cell from another tab in the same workbook. In other words I press "=" and then point to the cell in another tab and I would expect to see that value - however I don't. What I see, as an example, is: ='Nav&SPDiary'!B24 instead of the cell value (which I know exists because I've just pointed to it.

Anyone have ANY idea why all of a sudden it's started to do this? The most annoying thing is it worked fine before and now it doesn't do what I want...

Referencing Cells In Other Sheets Using INDIRECT

Aug 6, 2014

Applying my indirect formula to the rest of the cells in my sheet properly.

I am getting the values of cells in other sheets, using INDIRECT to use cell values to name the sheets. Here is an example of how the cells are now...


Sheet 1

[Code] ....

The formulas in B1 are going to return the value of A5 in "Sheet 1" (or whatever value is in A1) and B2 will return the vale cell A5 in 'Sheet 2. The next line will be the value of A6 in Sheet 1, and the next will be A6 in Sheet 2 and so on.

So I have quite a few rows to get through I want to be able to autofill so it looks like this...


Sheet 1

Sheet 2

[Code] ......

As it is now, when I autofill, it autofills the Sheet name part of it. It is looking like this...


Sheet 1

[Code] ......

Excel isn't intuitive enough to know I want to move cells in the referenced sheet.
