Relative Sheet References

Jun 20, 2006

I'm having some trouble coding a macro that copies data from one sheet in a workbook to the next sheet in the workbook, and the problem seems to stem from my lack of knowledge about how VBA refers to sheets. What I'd like to do is copy data from a range of cells in the next-to-the-last sheet in a workbook to the same range in the last sheet in the workbook.

Each day, I add a blank sheet to the end of all the sheets in my workbook. I insert some data into it, then go to the previous sheet, copy some data, return to today's sheet (the one I just added) and paste the data. I can record a macro that will do this perfectly, but it only works for the two sheets in which I record the macro. I need a way to change the sheet references so it always copies from the next-to-last sheet to the last sheet.

Converting Absolute References To Relative References In Formulas?

Feb 10, 2014

I set up formulas to count text characters in a range of cells. I'm tracking attendance and payments for a small yoga studio.

All I need to do is count "Y"s for prepaid attendance and "DI"s for drop-ins. I have the formulas working but they are absolute so inserting a row will break my sheet.

=COUNTIF(E14:Z14,"*Y*")
=COUNTIF(E11:Z11,"*DI*")

Relative Hyperlink References

Jan 24, 2010

I suspect there's a simple answer to this but I've looked and can't find it: In Excel 2003, when I add a hyperlink to another file and close/reopen my workbook, the link is saved as relative to the current workbook. So if the main workbook is moved or, in my case, when I use VBA to copy and email the sheet with the hyperlinks, the links are broken.

Relative References To Named Range

Jan 17, 2005

I have a spreadsheet with very long formulas that reference a whole lot of variables in the same column. I tried naming the cells so that writing of the formula is easier to do. However, I need to copy the column across for other entities of varying nature, and these copied cells refer to the same named cell. Can I name a cell and copy it sideways so that it retains some sort of name with allusion to the column that it is in?

Andrew van Gruting"

I have tried copying a formula with a named range and, as expected, it maintains an absolute reference. Is there a way that he might be able to copy but drop the absolute reference and copy with relative references. Can I place something in front - the equivalent to the $ sign, but rather a relative sign.

Using Relative References In Range Names

Jun 5, 2009

I have a workbook with a single worksheet. The worksheet includes some named ranges, which are used in a dynamic chart (so that when I add data, the chart updates).

I want to duplicate worksheet#1 so that I can have worksheets 2, 3, 4 etc.

Thus I can paste new data in the new worksheets, and have all my calculations done.

Naturally, the only probelm is the graph. It is using the named ranges from worksheet #1.

Is there a solution, so that I don't have to re-create my graphs on each worksheet? (each worksheet has varying numbers of rows, AND, I will be updating each worksheet with new data from time to time, thus the need for a dynamic chart)

Relative Or Absolute References? (each Day Is Exactly 10 Rows)

Apr 25, 2007

To simplify matters each day is exactly 10 rows (including header).

I already have code in column D that populates each D row IF it is the first unique occurance of column B for each day.
The forumla in column E for rows 2-10 put a daily total by each unique occurance.

The problem:
Since I am using absolute references in E2-E10 to contain the totals for that day if I copy E-2 -> E10 to E12-E20 the totals will be incorrect.

If I use relative references in the formula it changes the range for the day which is also produces incorrect totals.

Question:

How would I copy the formulas in column E to the addtional days so that the ranges follow for the specific 10 row day that they are intended?

Relative, Absolute & Mixed References In Many Cells

Jun 17, 2006

I've read several threads about switching between relative, absolute, and
mixed references across several cells however these solutions seem to result
in formula with all relative or all absolute or all mixed.

I need to change the formula in lots of cells with a mix of types of
reference. e.g. I need to change "$E$4*AD$2" to "$E4*$AD$2" & would prefer
not to have to go though each of the cells with F4!

Replace Blanks With Formula With Relative References

May 13, 2014

So have large spreadsheet with grid of elevations. Each column/row is 1 foot grid. There are blanks in it where there was no elevation data available. I need to interpolate those elevations using the surrounding known elevations. I can setup the interpolation just fine using a circular reference but what i am having trouble with is getting formula into all the cells. I need to replace blanks with formula that averages all four cells around it.

This will result in circular references that will interpolate from known points nearby. So for example if cell D4 was blank formula needs to be

=(D3+E4+D5+C4)/4. D5 would be =(D4+E5+D6+C5)/4.

I have been playing around trying to make a macro or something to do this but am not having any luck. Basically need to find/replace all blanks with formula above but so the formula references the cells around it properly.

Data Validation INDIRECT & Relative References

Oct 6, 2006

I am setting up a spreadsheet for user data entry. I have one sheet set up as a template to enable users to copy the required data header cells to subsequent sheets and (the problem) - to different locations on the subsequent sheets. The template is using validated lists with the criteria drawn from the cell/list directly above the current list. For example, the cell in R11C2 is validated/refering to the range: =Campaign

The cell directly below this is validated/ filtered by: =Indirect(R11C2). This works great in the template, or any subsequent sheet in which the cells are all located in the same row/column. However, when the template is pasted in a higher row, the Indirect refers to R11C2 rather than referencing the cell directly above.

Color Scale Conditional Formatting With Relative References

Oct 7, 2013

I'm having trouble with Color Scales within Conditional Formatting. I have a data set of commodity prices. In column A I have the name of the commodity, in column B I have the standard deviation of the price change of the commodity, and in Columns C-N I have the monthly % change in the commodity price. I want to conditionally format with Color Scales each row of price changes within Columns C-N based on each commodity's standard deviation (column B). If the price change is a one standard deviation or more decrease, I want the cell to be dark red; if the price change is less than a one standard deviation decrease, I want the cell to be a gradient of light red; if the price change is a one standard deviation or more increase, I want the cell to be dark blue; if the standard deviation is less than a one standard deviation decrease, I want the cell to be a gradient of light blue; and if the price change is 0, then I want the cell to be white.

I can achieve this perfectly by manually doing 3-Color Scale Conditional Formatting for each row, but it's very time-consuming. And Excel doesn't allow me to enter relative cell references when I'm doing the Color Scale Formatting. Is there a quick way that I can do this so that each row is color formatted differently?

I've attached an example file (there are many more rows within the original file) and formatted the first several rows manually as I want the final product to look.

2007 Macro Relative References Works On Only One Workbook

Oct 8, 2009

In Excel 2007 I am creating a macro with the "relative references" setting turned on. I want to repeat some tasks like: go to column A, sort, hide columns B thru F, hide columns H & I, return to column A.

Every time I try to create this macro by capturing key strokes, it inserts the workbook / worksheet name in the macro! Kinda defeats the ability to use it in any other workbook.

I am recording the macro in the PERSONAL.XLSX workbook. I have other macros that successfully perform in any workbook they are used in . . . but today I can't create one that doesn't incorporate the name of the original sheet it was recorded in.

Copy Relative References Whilst Using Range Names

Jul 20, 2006

eg say you call (ie insert a range name) cell A1 "firstcell", B1 "secondcell", then A2 "divisor1" and B2 "divisor2". if you put a formula in A3 which is "=A1/A2", how do you copy and paste this formula into B3 but getting the formula to reference B1/B2 rather than firstcell/divisor1, as it does by default?

Conditionally Format Cell Using Absolute Values And Relative Cell References?

Mar 25, 2013

Below is my code which isn't formatting the cells it's suppossed to. It looks like it isn't doing anything. I think the issue might be with the highlighted section of my code, but when I go to "Manage" my rules for conditional formatting, excel references the appropriate cell under the "Applies to" section. I am using relative cell references for for the majority of the rest of the code and this section follows a section that selects the correct cell for this conditional format.

Code:
Selection.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:="=""ABS()>.005"""
Selection.FormatConditions(Selection.FormatConditions.Count).SetFirstPriority[code].....

Formula Relative To A Sheet

Feb 24, 2009

Is there a way to write formulas so the variables are relative to a sheet?

I have a workbook that collects monthly electrical meter readings and calculates billing for each tenant. A new sheet is used for each month and the formulas need to refer to the previous months sheet for the prior meter reading.

For example cell C36 in the sheet Feb09 might contain: =Jan09!D36 Where Jan09 is the sheet name from the prior month. When I copy sheet Feb09 to make sheet Mar09 Id like the formula in C36 to be =Feb09!D36.

Relative Reference To Work Sheet

Nov 27, 2006

I am dealing with a workbook that will hold an undetermined amount of worksheets. Each of these worksheets will have have a series of numbers that are summed to a total within one cell. Lets say cell A10. For every spreadsheet, no matter what, this number will be stored in cell A10.

My first sheet will then be a master listing of all the other sheets in the workbook. In column A I will have the names of each sheet and in column B I want excel to list the value of A10 for the corresponding sheet listed in column A

So normally it would look like this on the master sheet

A | B
Sheet 2 | =Sheet2!A10
Sheet 3 | =Sheet3!A10
Sheet 4 | =Sheet4!A10

Where the formula would give me the value of A10 in the respective sheet.

What I would like to do is, within column B, I want to replace the sheet reference with the cell that contains the name of the sheet. So it would then be a formula similar to the below setup(Although this does not work because I have tried it)

A | B
Sheet 2 | =A1!A10
Sheet 3 | =A2!A10
Sheet 4 | =A3!A10

The hope is that excel would substitute in Sheet 2 for A1 and there by give me the sheet reference that I need. This way I can continuosly add sheets to the workbook and as long as I have the correct Sheet names in column A, all I need to do is drag the formula down column B and I will pull all of the necessary information without having to retype the formula each time.

Formula Relative To Sheet Housing It

Oct 28, 2006

I want to set up a name which is a relative cell refence an is independant of the sheet. Something like this ITEMCOST =A1

So I would use this in each sheet (Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3 ...)

So it should always reference A1 on whatever sheet the forrumal is placed e.g =0.175*ITEMCOST should work on A1 of each sheet. However, when I try this the name always references a specific worksheet Sheet1. I also want the name to cope with the case where I insert a new row so that the new value is ITEMCOST =A2

Wildcard In Path- Relative To Current Sheet

Dec 5, 2008

i am trying to do, i have a spreadsheet with 100+ tabs all with the day of the year. Jan1,Jan2,Jan3...Feb23,Feb24,Feb25... etc etc. I want to pull all of the same values for each of these sheets on a single tab (using vlookups, hlookups and reformatting the information for a macro to input all of this data into a database)

My question is, how can I put a entry form, lets call it a1 and fill in the tab i want the contents of the page to update with? For example, if i input "Jan18" in a1, all formulas on the page look for their source information on A1.

How To Copy Sheet And Keep References To That Sheet

Jul 28, 2014

Copy "SheetA", and you get "Sheet A (2)". But i want all of the formulas in second, just copied, sheet to reference first one. So what in "SheetA" was =W1 in "Sheet A (2)" should be =SheetA!W1. Is this posible?

If not, is there any easy way to add a prefix to selected range of formulas. I tried Find/Replace, but it ignores the formula and i end up with just a plane piece of text.

Totalling Cells With References To Another Sheet

Apr 22, 2009

I'm currently working on a summary page for the defects in the building we are working on.

I've done up a summary page which reference's cells in other sheets which contain a TEXT(COUNT formula. When I goto SUM these referenced cells in my summary page I keep getting it returning '0'.

Example of what I'm doing:-

Defects Column in Summary Page

411 --> referenced from =Basements!L1 --> L1 contains =TEXT(COUNT($C$8:$C$100),"0") formula

56 --> referenced from =Level1!L1 --> L1 contains =TEXT(COUNT($C$8:$C$100),"0") formula

33 --> referenced from =Level2!L1 --> L1 contains =TEXT(COUNT($C$8:$C$100),"0") formula

When I go to do a simple SUM of 411,56,33 via =SUM(D3:D5) it returns a zero?

Displaying Sheet Name Before All Cell References In Formula

Oct 11, 2013

Any way to always include the sheet name before the cell address in a formula? For example, in my "Summary" sheet, I have a formula:

Code:
=A2 + B4/B5

However, without typing anything else, I'd like the formula to populate the sheet name since I will be extracting the formula as text and need the full reference:

Code:
=Summary!A2 + Summary!B4/Summary!B5

A way to get around this is to enter the equal sign, then temporarily select another sheet, then go back to the "Summary" sheet where all cell references will include the sheet name, but if there is a quicker way to do it using some kind of property or event in VBA, that would be ideal.

Changing Hard Coded Column References To Variable References

Oct 22, 2009

I have a number of statements within the Sheet Event Code (Excel 2007). Three times lately I have added a column and had to go back into the code and find all of the references that needed changing to reflect the new column.

I have been working on this for a couple of days and even tried EE, but to no success.

I have read that Defined Names / Constants should be used as often as possible, but even trying that, the VBA code errors out or "hangs up". Even within Bill Jalen's book (VBA and Macros 2007), there is nothing that addresses this, especially using Intersect.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rng As Range

On Error GoTo mEnd
Set rng = Sheets("Log").[F14:F10000]
If Not Intersect(rng, Target) Is Nothing Then
If Target = "" Then
With Sheets("Log")

Pasting Data From One Sheet To Another With Formatting And Cell References

Feb 11, 2010

I have inherited a monstrous speadsheet on which all data appears on a single sheet rather than being broken up across several sheets in some logical fashion.

One portion of this monster is a set of quite a few form letters, each of which reference various cells elsewhere in the spreadsheet.

I want to move all of these letters, together, to another tabbed sheet as a first step in reorganizing the monster.

Simply copying and pasting the cells or columns doesn't work. It fails in different ways depending on which pasting options I employ.

A very simplified version of my problem appears on the 5 sheets of the attached file, with what I hope is just enough further detail about the difficulty.

By the way, I also tried using the "Insert Copied Cells" option when pasting but since this failed with the exact same results as one of the other options I didn't include the results in the example shreadsheet.

How To Reference Other Sheet Names In Workbook But Keep Cell References The Same

Oct 7, 2013

Within one workbook I have 15 sheets, 13 are for separate divisions within the company, 2 are used to present sums across the 13 sheets. All 13 sheets have identical columns and rows, with unique numbers in each cell. Right now I am manually selecting the cells to reference in my master sheet, =sheet name!cell+sheetname!cell+sheetname!cell - so and and so on. How can I reference the sheet name once, and then all of the cells to SUM? =sheetname!(c4+c14+c24+c34) etc?

This would let me be able to copy the formula from cell to cell, and only have to change the sheet name each time.
