Values Update Automatically

Oct 18, 2008

In my worksheet I have a data validation dropdown which changes the value in a cell. I then use VLOOKUP to find values in Personal.xls (open) based upon that cell. It works great, BUT if I make any changes to the data in Personal.xls it doesn't get updated in the other file. I've tried saviing, closing, opening etc but it never updates since I first did it.

Automatically Update The Values.

Jan 5, 2010

I have a worksheet with a cell that references another cell.
Cell A1 references cell B1, and the value of cell A1 is "=B1"

When I type anything in B1, A1 won't automatically update to reflect what I've typed. The only way I can get it to update on the fly is to save the workbook. Even when I close the workbook and reopen it, it still won't update to what I've typed in B1. Is there a setting that keeps it from autoupdating?

How To Update Rows Based On New Values So That Those Are Pulled Automatically

May 27, 2014

I create a report that shows one set of numbers against another set of numbers based on a transactions list I pull monthly. The Report tab is really simple and is based on the sumifs. Sometime, new accounts are created that I don't know about. They show up in the transactions table but not on the Report tab. Is there a way to automatically add new accounts/rows on my summary sheet so that no account is missed? Is there also a way where columns A and B on the Report tab are unique values that are pulled from the transactions tab? Hence, if a new number and description are added, the list just picks it up. In my case however, there are tens or hundred of lines with the same accounts/descriptions.

Automatically Update Only With Numbers (ifnumber-update And Go To Next Cell)

Oct 18, 2013

Let's say that in column A I have numbers,"Yes" and "No". I want in column B to have only the numbers from column A, in the same order without any empty ranges, and everytime I add in column A a new number, column B to update automatically with that number. Let's have an example:

Yes 12
12 13
No 10

And if I want to add in column A:
Yes 12
12 13
No 10
13 25
No 15

So the column be will update automatically. I already tried =IFERROR(INDEX($A$1:$A$10,SMALL(IF(ISNUMBER($A$1:$A$10),ROW($A$1:$A$10)),ROWS(B$1:B1))-ROW($A$1)+1),") but using this many times get's my file very heavy and the excel is working slow.

Autofill; Copy Down It Doesn’t Automatically Update The Cell References Because It Want To Update Them By Column Number Instead Of Row Number

Dec 11, 2008

I have a basic formula =C17+'Asset Depreciation 2008 Onwards'!C24, and I want to copy it down just using the drag function. Problem is that the second reference range of cells are in rows and hence when I copy it down it doesn’t automatically update the cell references because it want to update them by column number instead of row number. IE I want it to display =C17+'Asset Depreciation 2008 Onwards'!
D24, instead of C25. Do you know if there is any way of telling Excel that I want it to increase the column number by 1 every time, instead of the row number for this part of the formula?

How To Automatically Update The Month Name

Apr 14, 2014

We have a worksheet that contains twelve different charts. Once a month, we load data into anotheer worksheet and run a macro and it produces the twelve charts. The problem is that we have to manually update/change the month name in each chart title every time we run the macro to produce the charts. Is there a way to automatically update the month name so that we do not have to manually do it? For example, the current chart title is "xxxxxx - March 2014"....when we run the charts for April, we have to manually change March to April in each of the charts. Can this be done automatically?

Do Not Want Cells To Update Automatically

Jul 7, 2009

This what my excel sheet looks like that i am using the date ant time cell is set by using the now formula to get the current date and time, but I only want the date tiem change for each row when it changes.

For example when the data for the first row changes all the dates and time change, but I only want the effected rows time to change not all the times and dates, this progam is set up to monitor inventory and when some makes a change to the inventory I need to now when the that data was recorded but do not want the users to have to enter the data and want it to be enter automatically that is why i am using the now function. The data may not change at all for a couple days that why I need to be able to keep the Date data from changing automatically.

Adding Up And Update Automatically

Feb 11, 2010

I require a total amount of 'cost price' items we have in stock.

As you can see from sheet 1, 'Adidas', the total is £43.00. However that is not the cost of stock, as some items are not in stock, as per Column I. (The cost is actually £36.00).

How can I make a total to include just items in stock? Bear in mind new stock is inserted between others in order of Model so the forumale would need to update automatically, and there are several hundred sheets, not just 2.

Links Do Not Automatically Update

Sep 11, 2013

I have a dashboard (CW Dashboard.xlsx) that is linked to 3 main spreadsheets. In each main spreadsheet, there are 5 tabs. One tab contains raw data, the other 4 tabs contain tables: 2 tabs with formulas based on the raw data tab, and 2 tabs linked to 20 other spreadsheets (for now). I separated the raw data into 3 spreadsheets because Excel was calculating way slower than my patience would tolerate. All spreadsheets are Excel 2010. All spreadsheets reside on our network drive.

The links update as expected on the 2 tabs that are linked to the 20 different spreadsheets in each of the three main spreadsheets.The CW Dashboard does not update. I get #REF! in each cell (although when I click in the cell, the link shows no error). I am using VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP in this spreadsheet. I can of course open the source documents from within the Dashboard and the links then work as expected. However, I would prefer the eventual users of the Dashboard not have to open 4 s'sheets.

Automatically Update The Stock

Feb 10, 2009

I have attached a sample of our worksheet (GTS807) used to create quotes and generate jobsheets etc once they are orders. To ensure we have enough of a size in stock I want to carry out a check against the stocksheet (stock) which I have no problem but I cant get it to automatically update the stock once a quote becomes an order and removes the quantity from stock!

As you see the balance of stock in shown in AA13 for "115270" but is there a code to find "115270" on the stock sheet and copy the new balance back there?

Automatically Update To New Version?

Sep 25, 2009

I have an excel based appliction that I distribute to about 150 people in the US, London, Hong Kong and Singapore. Distribution is currently done by email containing a link to a Sharepoint site (the email has the link, release notes, etc). The end users open the file and save it to their desktops, overwritting the previous version. I'm finding that many users are not updating their versions as they should be.

So what I'm wondering is if there's a way to have this process automated - so that when the user opens the file, it checks a repository (sharepoint or otherwise) for a more current version, then prompts the user to download it.

I'm trying to update an excel document which has a list of employees on it along with their training. Most of the training for individuals needs refreshed in the next year so wanted the table to use the date and perhaps trigger a fill colour change once they are close to needing that training. here's an example

Once we get a month or two before the required date, I would like the fill colour to change to highlight that they refresher training should be organised soon.

How To Automatically Update Cell References

Lets say I have two sheets titled "dashboard" and "raw data" in a workbook. Cell A1 in "dashboard" should always show the most up to date data from Row 1 in "Raw Data".

CountIf - Automatically Update Once Opened

Oct 18, 2008

I have made a league table which pulls data from another table - in this example. The actual one i am using pulls data from a different workbook. Any way...In one of my columns i am using the countif formula to count how may times an advisor's name appears. Eg - =COUNTIF(A:A,"Sally A").

Is there another formula i can use to carry out this function. The reason i am asking this is there are multiple links in my league table to the other workbook. Once i open my league table all the data is updated - as the other workbook data is changed. However, for this to work i need to open up the other workbook where the data is , otherwise i will get the VALUE# error. I do not want to open the other workbook just to pull the data over, i need this league to automatically update once opened.

Get The Status Colum To Update Automatically

Oct 10, 2008

I have a spreadsheet reports on tasks that is updated daily.
At the end of the columns is a due date column and a status colour column where 4 options are possible:
Red = out of target, yellow = on target, brown = still on target but at risk, and green = on target.

I have been asked to see if there is some way of making the status colour column automated so that as task pass their due date and are not complete or are complete, the status field changes automatically.

I have added the feature in =today() in cell A1 and another column next to due date date completed. I think these will help but not sure how to get the status colum to update automatically. I've tried using the IF function but that only returns text...

VBA Code To Automatically Update Using A Vlookup

Feb 13, 2009

I'm trying to write a VBA code to automatically update using a vlookup but I seem to be running into trouble, partically with the lookup value part of my vlookup. I basically have a range of dates in column B and want the values to appear in column C. Yes, I know I just type the forumla in column C and drag it down, but I really need to do it in VBA, as I want this to update when additional dates are added.

This is what I have thus far. The code keeps looping at i = i +1 and doesn't stop unless interuppted.

Sub update()
Dim i As Integer, L() As Range, s As Integer, V As Double
s = Range("D:D").Select
On Error Resume Next
While s ""
i = i + 1
ReDim Preserve L(i To 1)
L(i) = s
If i = 0 Then
MsgBox "No dates found"
End If
Exit Sub

For i = 1 To UBound(L)
V = WorksheetFunction.VLookup(s, Range("Inputs"), 2, 0)
Next i
End Sub

Absolute References: The Sub Worksheets To Update Automatically

Aug 4, 2009

I have a workbook with a main worksheet where all the data entry and calculations are made and then I have "sub" worksheets which mirror subsets (specific columns) of the information from the main worksheet. When information in the main worksheet changes, or rows/columns are added, I want the sub worksheets to update automatically.

The only way I can figure out to do this is to use absolute references in the sub worksheets. Does anyone know how to change the references to be absolute (using the F4 function) without having to do them one by one? Or can anyone suggest how I can achieve this in another way.

Update Link Between Sheets Automatically And In Sequence

Nov 1, 2013

I have a excel workbook with One Master Sheet.

The data entered in the master sheet is automatically updated in the sub worksheets through direct links created . Each sub worksheet is a branch of organization. almost 100 branches are there.

The data is entered for all the branches in the Master Sheet at different periods continuously which is to be kept as such.

For example In first day 10th, 15th branch data may be entered in master sheet first and second row, which is getting automatically updated in the respective branch worksheets. But the problem is when the data is entered for any branch( for example 6th branch) in 5th row of Master sheet, in the respective 6th branch sheet also, it is updated only in 5th row only, leaving the first four rows blank. But i want the updation in the branch sheet continuously without any blank rows.

For updation i have used the simple direct link between the cells of Master worksheet and Branch sheets.

How to get the updation in branch worksheets while entering the data in Master sheet without any blank rows.
