What I am looking to do, instead of telling excel what sheet to go to, is insert this: =INDIRECT(TEXT(Y10,"yyymm")&"!ab1749") to find the matching sheet name to the date that resides in cell Y10.
These both work separately on their own to return the needed value. How do I put them into one formula without telling excel what sheet to go to (1st formula) and specifically what cell to go to (2nd formula) because the cell location may change and I want to completely automate this?
Column A has got random numbers, my formula attemts to capture the count of numbers as specified in B1, is there a way I can nest an indired t formula to mention in cell C1 ( > or < ) so it can look for numbers greater than the number in B1 or lesser as indicated
I am trying to sum the same data across several tabs but I am using information in the column and row headers to find it. For some reason this formula wont work and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
I have a set of data as attached where the productivity of each staff is recorded on a daily basis.However, the cell in which their name is located on each tab of the day of the month might not be the same. I am thankful that the forum actually provided me with the formula located in cell c15.
1)However, I would appreciate if someone could translate what the formula means as I am not so sure what the formula represents.
2)The reason is I would like to calculate how many training days (TR), Medical Leave(ML) and Emergency Leave(EL) for the month of January for each staff.I tried modifying the formula but it didnt work.
3) Is it possible to use a vlookup function for this solution?
It's just a simple percentage calculator for my purposes and works fine as is. However, I want to make it dynamic whereby from a user input the length of the array will increase or decrease, e.g. G9-G11 will become G9-G12 if there are four rows occupied with data. For all my other SUMming equations I have solved this and even came up with what I think is a perfectly valid solution for this one. The one problem is that it doesn't work when combined into a single equation.
My solution for the upper part of the fraction is this:
The formula is =SUMPRODUCT((Group="A")*(Project_Description="Long Term")*(Profile="B")*(INDIRECT(B9)="x"))
B9 through M9 have header text Jan_2012, Feb_2012...Dec_2012. Basically my aim is to get the above formula working before I drag it across so that the named ranges get picked up automatically from the headers.
Jan_2012 thru Dec_2012 are dynamic named ranges using INDEX (and not OFFSET as someone mentioned OFFSET is a volatile function).
The above SUMPRODUCT formula is giving me a #REF! error for the (INDIRECT(B9)="x") part. I know that because when I replace it with (Jan_2012="x") it works fine.
I realized while writing this that it may be because the named range in Jan_2012 is not the same size as that of other arrays. [but it is the same size - I've re-confirmed just now]
I am trying to develop an Indirect Indirect Validation drop down list. Example, Building - Floor - Room, i.e. Select Building from a Validation drop down list. Then based upon the Building selected, select only the Floors applicable to the Building Selected. I am able to achieve this via an Indirect Validation drop down. However, when I attempt to then select the Rooms applicable to the Floor of the Building I selected, I can not produce an Indirect Validation off a previous Indirect Validation.
In the attachment, I have used Plant - Location - Room. I have name ranged the selections, and have used Validations Lists for Plant, and Indirect Validations for Location. The error occurs where I attempt to do an Indirect Validation for Room.
the 01, 02 ... 020 are the names of the sheets. How can I modify the formula so that I can use other sheet names. Name sheets whose cells I want to be myself in C4 and D4. I tried INDIRECT but I don't know for several sheets.
How could I create a formula that would look up based on month, category, and most importantly an indirect? I have attached a spreadsheet, the indirect is in K13 (and could be Quarter 1, Quarter 2, Quarter 3, Quarter 4) with matching data in "Sheet 2".
I am having some trouble with a handy formula I learned over this forum and its application between two tabs.
Referencing the attached workbook, the formulas in cell C6 & C7 are working for the end range I want, but the first section doesn't want to work. I'm not sure if it has something to do with the quotes (") or not.
Address(5,$Z$5+60) appears to refer to the cell I want; however, I'm trying to use the Address function inside a Rank function and have tried it with and without the Indirect function (as shown below) and it doesn't work --
I am trying to use this formula to get to total of each month depending on A2. Cell A2 will have drop down of months names, that is Tabs names. I want B2 to have total of each month rather than cell reference, because Total may not be always in the same cell, we add rows if we add new account number or cost center.
So, Can I use name function instead of cell reference, for example April-total, May-total, June-total etc.
I have several cells with defined names throughout a workbook which I need to be able to sum. The defined names all have the same naming convention (i.e. Assets575Total, Assets349Total, Assets286Total) where the numeric is an account #.
I have tried the follwing formulas below using Indirect, however, none seem to work:
This continues for up to 1000 lines from a database. I have this is a tab called "Database". From the data in the tab "Database", I want to be able to create 4 seperate reports.
The first report might only have the columns "Item #" and "Date". The second report might only have the columns "Item #" and "Qty". The 3rd with only "Item #" and "Price" The 4th with only "Item #" and "Cost"
If I create a new spreadsheet called "Sales" and create the following:
I totally understand how to make the combobox under form controls now but I am not having any success with the indirect function I was using as a list now that I have a combo box. I have attached the current form I am working on that just shows the list function still. How to convert this over to combo boxes with the indirect function?
I attached a second form with the feature I am asking about. It is just lacking the third list that I now have in place. (on the 1st attachment).
