Automatic Referenced Linking?

Apr 8, 2007

I have a matrix of numbers that is 6 columns (A,B,C,D,E,F) by 200 rows. The number 4 randomly appears 83 times in this matrix. My objective is to setup a cell outside of the matrix at cell location H1 that will be referenced linked to all of the cells where the number 4 shows up in the matrix using a formula like: "=$H$1" inside all of the 83 separate cells where 4 shows up. I am doing this manually, and it is a drag.

Is it possible to make Excel do the linking for you automatically? I'm talking about selecting any region of numbers and then instructing Excel to find all occurances of a number you are looking for and then have Excel setup a link for you by inserting "=$H$1" automatically where that number shows up? Therefore, when I go to cell "=$H$1" and type in 7, all of the 83 locations where 4 is contained automatically change to 7. Again what I'm trying to avoid is having to manually setup these links. I want to know if Excel can find the occurances of the number 4 (or any other number) in any region I select and then have it do the referenced linking for me to any cell I specify that is outside the region I select.

Cell Referenced By Two Numbers

Feb 15, 2009

In cell A1 I have a number representing a column and in cell A2 I have a number representing a row. In A3 I wish to obtain the value from the cell referenced by these two numbers.

A1 = 3
A2 = 4
A3 = value from cell C4 (column 3, row 4). How do I write a formula in A3 to look this value up?? I know about the range function in visual basic but I just want to be able to do this using a spreadsheet formula.

Is There A Way To Use A Referenced Formula For Different Data

Aug 17, 2009

Here is a google doc of my issue: [url]

An Excel sheet is also attached.

I believe you have permissions to edit.

In H1:H4 I have 4 different functions. When the user specifies which function to use in E1 (add, subtract, multiply, or divide), I would like C1:C4 to evaluate the values in Columns A & B.

My problem is that the formula only uses the values in A1 and B1. When I copy the formula down the column, it still evaluates for the values in A1 and B1, not in A2 and B2, A3 and B3, etc...

Changing Referenced Directory

Oct 12, 2008

I had posted earlier and felt I had solved my problem, but I have not. What I am trying to do is use code to change directory when the save menu is activated.

I want to be able to open from one location and then it defaults to another. I have tried "chdir" , but I can't seem to get it to work. Even when I change the DefaultFilePath, the "save as" location defaults to the location where the file was opened from. I want to default all "saves" in a specific location without using the menu to select.

Auto Fill A Referenced Table

Jun 18, 2014

I'm looking to set up a table in Excel (or possibly Access that is then referenced through Excel). But end goal would be to be able to type in an Item Number and then Excel automatically fills in the Description, weight, price and other information about that item number. That way, I don't have to type in "11108.1" and "Computer Mouse" and "$15.98". I want to only type in "11108.1" and it knows to fill in the other information. Is this possible in Excel? I've searched through many functions and haven't found it so I'm thinking it may require a combination of formulas.

Replace All To Change A Referenced File Name

May 28, 2014

I am working on a spreadsheet that will be referencing approximately 20-30 separate workbooks which all have identical sheet / column structure and have a consistent file naming convention. ("###-YYYY") Since, this is referencing separate files and not sheets with this workbook, I cannot use INDIRECT. However, I should be able to use index / match referencing provide instructions for users to copy a set of cells down and the globally change the file name. The problem is that the file directory pops up with each instance and the user has to manually select or confirm the file.

There would be approximately 15 cells with a formula similar to this example and would want to change the two instances of "403" to a new 3-digit code, say "444". Then as each year cycles over, we'd want to change all instances of 2014 to 2015.

lagraffDownloads[403-2014.xlsx]Forecast Budget'!$D$15:$D$48,MATCH($P$2,'C:Users
lagraffDownloads[403-2014.xlsx]Forecast Budget'!$B$15:$B$48,0))

Any settings in Excel, or known tricks, so the user won't have to continuously click on the file and the find/replaces executes at each instance?

Putting Text In A Referenced Cell

Jul 10, 2008

In my excel sheet I have a list of where they go, which are basically excel cells.. i.e. A1 is the top left corner.

What I am trying to figure out how to do is, is there a way that I can get excel to see "A1" and then put it in A1 of another sheet on the bottom. Thus I get the same grid I have on the wall, making a map of my things.

Also, I could just cut and paste, but the problem is I'm working on organizing the stuff on the wall, and if I do it the way I want to, when I move things, they should automatically be moved on the chart.

So basically I need it to look at a cell for the reference, choose text from another cell (which will be concaternated(sp) text), and then place it in the referenced cell in the chart sheet.

Automatically Sorting A Referenced Sheet

Feb 10, 2009

I have a dorm roster on one sheet and the other sheet is an Alpha Roster. I want it to automatically sort alphabetically (column B) . Any time I change the roster, the Alpha Roster sheet doesn't automatically sort, I have to hilight and re-sort it again.

I updated the file, there are 4 tabs at the bottom. 1st Floor, 2nd Floor, and 3rd Floor. I want to have all the names, room numbers, and phases (ph) in alphabetical order on the Alpha roster tab. And when ever I make changes to one of the Floors, it will automatically update it the Alpha Roster.

VBA For Error Message If Value Is Referenced In Sheet

Jun 6, 2009

I have a worksheet called "PurchaseOrders" and a worksheet called "Orders."

In the "Orders" Worksheet I have a command button. When this button is clicked it writes to cells in the "PurchaseOrders" Worksheet. The cell range it writes to is N21:N1000. It basically writes an invoice number which exists in cell B6 of the "Orders" Worksheet with each number listed in order.

After it has written, when I return to the "Orders" Worksheet, if the button is clicked again but the PurchaseOrders" Worksheet N21:1000 contains an invoice, the same as "Orders" Worksheet B6 (a duplicate), I would like an error message to be returned stating "Please Create a new invoice." I already have a sub where error messages are recorded for void fields and unregistered customers.

How would I write an if statement in this sub to say:

IF Cell range in "PurchaseOrders" Worksheet (N21:N1000) does not equal the code in "Orders Worksheet (B6) please process code as normal. Else if it does please display an error message and do not proceed with processing any code? For some reason I'm having trouble naming the cell range.

Sorting Cells With Referenced Names In Name Box

Jun 8, 2009

I'm trying to do is sort cells which are referenced by names in the name box when a button is clicked. All the coding is in VBA.

If a cell is sorted by a macro, I would like the referenced name to move with it on the spreadsheet.

For example if the referenced name box for C5 is Bob and Andrew is the referenced name box in C6, when a button is clicked I would like the Andrew reference to move to C5 and Bob to move to C6. This is sorting in alphabetical order. However, I would like the referenced names to stay the same. Referenced Name refers to the cell name box.

Is there a way to do this in VBA?

Add-in Not Referenced When Workbook Run From USB Drive On Computer

Jul 10, 2012

I have an Add-In installed on multiple computers. When I update it I update them all at the same time so that everyone is on the same page. The Add-In is always in the same location for all computers.

C:- Global FilesVF MacroVF Macro Add-In.xlam

I use the Add-In to format a sheet and one of the formats is to display the "last author" & "Last Save Time" This is the code used:

Function DocProps(prop As String)
On Error GoTo err_value


The same situation occurs with cell Z8 as well. It appears it is looking in the wrong location. If I change the E to a C in the formula bar it fixes the issue but I cannot rely on my users to do this every time. We keep the WB's in question on an external drive and pass it around as needed. So they will run into this problem on a regular basis.

I also get a "Security Warning - Automatic update of Links has been disabled" message only when run from the USB drive.

Lookup File Referenced From Other Cell

Jan 2, 2008

I have a basic blank file which takes production volumes of a product as an input and breaks the figure down to give individual component usage as an output. It then uses this figure to tell the user the best configuration to hold stock.

This file is 'save as' each month as the month, year and filename (ie: 11.2007MPS.xls, 01.2008MPS.xls) and then the monthly production figures are entered.

Within this file there are 'comparison' worksheets, cells on this page look into the previous months file and tell the user where changes have occurred; showing the physical changes that should be made. This lookup is referenced to a cell that gives the previous month ('MPS INPUT'$D$13), this is filled in by the user.

At current I am using the Vlookup(Indirect formula:
=(VLOOKUP(B4,INDIRECT("'I:SCIPMPS["&'MPS INPUT'!$D$13&"MPSCOPY.xls]Row 2'!$A$2:$N$100"),5,FALSE))

Yet, this requires all the previous months’ files to be open which isn't really feasible in the long run. Solving this issue using custom 'add-ins' (as i believe have) is not feasible either since the file will be used by many users who are not amazingly I.T literate.

Replacing Referenced Cells With Static Text?

Feb 26, 2013

I'm making a vba macro that takes a workbook and splits and saves it as individual sheets. In this process I need to find all the referenced cells (ie =E5) and change them to their text or numeric value. A few things I've found on the form and tired with no success:

Selection is a column selected from the top to the last used cell (I know there is only 4 columns that have references)

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste = xlPasteValues

Also tried:

ActiveSheet.UsedRange = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Value

I feel like one of these should be working. But even after the paste the values are still references.

Edit: An afterthought, if I were to select the whole sheet and do a copy/special paste would it replace all formula cells with their calculated value?

Bring Referenced Cell Values To Top Of Worksheet

Apr 18, 2014

ATTACHMENT: Order Form.xlsx

I am creating an Order form for my job in Excel. On this form, it displays the Top 100 items for sale. All the basic functionality of the form is working fine, my real issue is with the order summary tab.

On this tab, I would like for any Items with a Quantity on the first Sheet to transfer to a summary on the Second sheet.

So far, I am able to get the data onto the second spreadsheet. My final question is, can make the items on the summary sheet go to the top available row? Basically if I have items in row 3, row 7 and row 9 - I would like for the items to automatically fill in rows 3,4,5 respectively. (on the second worksheet)

I have seen people make this happen (on this board even) but for some reason, when I try using those formulas I do not get the results I need. I have attached the file to this post.

On the Tab entitled "Adv Piano" this the product list. On that tab, customers can put a Quantity in column G for the items they want to order and that item's details, price, and quantity will automatically appear on the 2nd tab, "Order Details" in columns I - L in the corresponding row (this is already done)

I need the information in the columns I - L on the "Order Details" sheet to appear in columns C - G on the same sheet, in the same order but to fill in towards the top with the corresponding quantities, item details and price remaining in the same row.

How To Hide Displayed 0 In Two Circular Referenced Cells

Feb 3, 2014

Very simply, if A1=B1 and B1=A1 - how do I trick excel into displaying a blank cell for the purpose of printing pages?

Further information:

I am working on an evidence log, it's just a spreadsheet with columns for collection info; all of the information put into the log on one sheet, is referenced on a second sheet where the info is arranged in a printable grid to make sample tags.

For some ungodly reason, I have been instructed to make all of the references circular, so that anyone with a particularly masochistic streak can log their information on the tag to populate the log and vice verse

This results in my log and tags each having 0 values displayed in all of the cells, which I didn't think was a problem, until it was pointed out to me that people may want to print out sheets and use them to take notes in field, making blanking the cells my ultimate goal.

Countif(Range, Multiple Referenced Values?)

Jan 8, 2009

I was wondering if it's possible to use a countif so that the condition can be a range of values also? For example, A1 = 14.12.08, A2 = 15.12.08 and A3 = 16.12.08

So I can have a countif that looks like: Countif(B1:B300, A1:A3). It doesn't work when I try it, but was wondering if there's a way to achieve the same result? So if B1:B300 contained any of the values in A1:A3 it would count the amount of times they appear in the B range.
