# Copying A Formula Without Changing A Part Of The Reference

Aug 4, 2009
I have this If statement on one of the cells

=IF(A7=AQ6,AQ32,IF(A7=AR6,AQ32,IF(A7=AS6,AQ32,IF(A7=AT6,AQ30,IF(A7=AU6,AQ29,IF(A7=AV6,AQ33,IF(A7=AW6 ,AQ33,IF(A7=AX6,AQ31,""))))))))

If I want to change only A7 to A8, A9, A10 without changing the other parts of the formula, how do I do that. I need to copy this formula in about 300 rows.

I am trying to cut/paste a row of formulas in my spreadsheet. The problem is that I want some of the referenced cells in the formula to stay CONSTANT and not increment on each new row. In this example, I want the references to row 17 (F17,E17) to increment (E18,E19,...), but I want the "G7" reference to remain hard coded (as G7) on each row I paste (because that is where my master value is). (The formula is working fine) =IF((F17>0),IF((F17<=G7),E17,0),0)

A 'Days Attended' cell (N8) and a 'Days Absent' cell (O8). N8 needs to count the number of "Present" values there are on another worksheet. The other worksheet has dates across the top and names down the side.

When i use

=COUNTIF("Attendance!C9:Z9", "Present"),

and the next date comes along the formula changes to

=COUNTIF("Attendance!D9:AA9", "Present")

ie. the reference moves a column across - the new date's absent or present is not counted. Using =COUNTIF(INDIRECT("Attendance!C9:Z9"), "Present"). is no good because when i add a new name i need the row reference to move down as a row is inserted. ie. both person's formulas count the same row. So, my question: I need the columns to stay the same - C:Z (leyway for future dates) and the rows to change as i insert or delete people from the system.

I have a spreadsheet serving as a simple document register. Column A is a unique document reference number, which is a simple concatenation of some text which prefixes all of the document numbers, plus the date in "yyymmdd" format (from column B) and a 3-digit sequence number (from column C).

Column B has no formula - my macro just pastes a timestamp in there.

Column C is a sequence number field which has a formula comparing the "yyymmdd" part of the timestamp with the cell directly above it. If they are different then the sequence number becomes "001" - if they are the same then the sequence number is incremented by 1, so all docs created on the same day have an incremental sequence number.

Here's the problem. When I want to add a new document I need to copy the last row down to the next row (in preparation for the next document to be created by my system) and there are two ways I've been doing this - one which works and one which doesn't.

This works > Say my last row (with the hidden formulae) is row 13. I select A13:C13 plus the three blank cells directly below (A14:C14) and do a Ctrl+D to copy them down. All is well.

But the following doesn't work - why? > I select the entire row 13, copy it, then reinsert it at row 13 so the formulae in row 13 get shifted down to row 14. What goes wrong here is that my formula in column C which WAS comparing the date in B13 to the one in B12 NOW compares B13 to B11

I've attached an example spreadsheet to try and demonstrate the problem. Sheet 1 is the original sheet. Sheet 2 is the "copying down" method which works, and Sheet 3 shows what happens when you copy the entire row 13 and "Insert copied cells".

As per this screenshot,

I am trying to work out a method which will allow me to drag the forumula which is in cell B13 from B13:B17, and have in increase the date serial number by one for each row by which it descends.

In other words I want to drag the formula down to, say B14, and have it increase the date serial to = that which is in cell A14.

[the obvious benefit of being able to do this is that I don't have to manually adjust the date serial in each cell on each new row]

I have a spreadsheet containing quite a few lookups etc. I am trying to copy a cell across about 10 columns. This has to be done for about 50 different rows on about 20 different sheets, so I am looking for an alteration to the formula to help me rather than typing in the formula over and over;

='Basic Labour'!AD6*Rates!$E$526

Say this is in AD6, then in AE6 I would require

='Basic Labour'!AE6*Rates!$E$527

and so on across the region to be autofilled...

(It is multiplying the same cell in a different sheet against the 'next row down' in a rates lookup sheet).

i want to return a value from a cell in another workbook where part of the the workbook name is determined by a date set on the current open sheet.

so on my open sheet i have a cell where the user can change the date and i want the below formula to then use the date to look at the relevant file.

any ideas would be appreciated. know how to do this in VBA but no clue with formulas.

what i am trying to do is concatenate part of a file name and a cell value which contans a date

=VLOOKUP(A4,[accountsummary17022008.xls]Sheet1!$A:$B,2,FALSE)

I have a set of formula in column C to H. I have set a formula as sheet1+sheet2+ like this for about 24 sheets with different reference of cells. I want to change in the entire range of cells C to H as =sum(sheet1:sheet24!b04). The reference what I have mentioned changes in different cells.

I am trying to run a quick format on a table that includes adding a Vlookup formula. The formula references a table that comes out of a pivot table, so it has a different name every time. If I look up the new generated table name, and change it below it works. Is there a way to capture the table name and insert it into the formula? Or possibly rename the table to the same thing everytime (which I think is going to cause some conflict).

I would like to copy only the IF Formula without copying the cell reference. Say for example I have a formula shown below:

BEFORE

A1=IF('PW216'!G7>=0.9999,0.999,'PW216'!G7)

AFTER

A2=IF('PW216'!AC7>=0.9999,0.999,'PW216'!AC7)

My formula is =IF('PW216'!G7>=0.9999,0.999,'PW216'!G7) is in Red Font color. I want to copy only the formula but when I paste it, it will as well copy the cell reference.

I have a function Sum('1st Qtr:4th Qty'!AW1) in row 1 and dragged down 129 rows so the last reads Sum('1st Qtr:4th Qty'!AW129). If I insert a row the cell reference does not increment automatically below the insert location. How do I get it to do so. The insertion occurs when I run a macro.

I was using the formula below which was working fine for copying across 20 columns and down however many rows, but now the requirements have changed to 90 columns. I have tested this out with the 90 columns but the Indirect function is bogging down the spreadsheet with the constant recalculating.

=IFERROR(INDIRECT("'"&COLUMNS($A$1:A$1)&"'!P"&ROWS($A$1:$A8)),"")

I rearranged the formula to the one below, but how can I have the reference to the sheet name changed as in the formula above without using the Indirect?

=IFERROR(INDEX('1'!$A$8:$AT$115,MATCH($A3,'1'!$A$8:$A$115,0),MATCH("PAT",'1'!$A$7:$AT$7,0)),"")

The sheet reference will change from '1' through '90'.

I have been using the following formula to do conditional summing over multiple worksheets:

=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(INDIRECT("'"&$AB$2:$AB$13&"'!b3:b39"),$B16,INDIRECT("'"&$AB$2:$AB$13&"'!c3:c39")))

The formula works fine, but when I drag it to the next column c3:c39 stays the same. How do I get that reference to change when I drag the formula over multiple columns.

When I copy the formula to another cell, It doesn't show the result. But when I double click on it, it works. For example

there r values in A1 as "john" & A2 as "Jack". I write formula =A1 in cell B1. It shows "John". Now I copy this formula to B2, it shows "john" instead of "Jack" . When I double click on B2 & enter, it shows "Jack".

I have a table of consolidated data that consists of the date at which certain payments occur and their amounts that other sheets need to reference to perform calculations. I am currently using the formula below to put the data under the correct date column. =INDEX(ImportedData!$B$10:$DB$10,MATCH(B3,ImportedData!$B$4:$DB$4,FALSE)). The problem that I have is that the INDEX range, currently B10:DB10, will need to change depending on the number of files that are consolidated ie with more files the row will increase.

I'm having to copy formula on a tabulation sheet that compiles information from other worksheets, and I need to change the formulas in each row to refer to the successive worksheets. Right now I don't know any other way than changing the formula in each cell, and this is taking way too long.

Example:

One cell's formula: =COUNTIF('5'!$F$21:$T$50,TABULATION!C$5) In the next row down, I need it be: =COUNTIF('6'!$F$21:$T$50,TABULATION!C$5), then =COUNTIF('7'!$F$21:$T$50,TABULATION!C$5), and so on.

Is it possible to copy a formula and have the worksheet name increase incrementally instead of the cell reference? Example: In column A, I have the following -

=TDI_SR_F_1!$G$1

=TDI_SR_F_1!$G$2

=TDI_SR_F_1!$G$3

I want to copy this across to column B, but instead of just copying that exact foruma across I am wanting a formula that will update the worksheet reference to:

=TDI_SR_F_2!$G$1

=TDI_SR_F_2!$G$2

=TDI_SR_F_2!$G$3

TDI_SR_F_2 is the worksheet after TDI_SR_F_1. NB - I cant use find and replace function as it will change the '1' which is part of the cell reference ($G$1) to a 2 as well. I know I can use TDI_SR_F_3 as a search string, but the process is going to be extremely tedious, i.e. there are literally over 100 rows I need to do the find and replace on.

how I can have a formula repeat down a column five times before it changes to another formula? For example. Say on tab 1 I have a list of products. On tab two I have five codes that repeat down the page over and over again. On tab two next to the repeating codes I need to repeat product one 5 times and then skip to product 2 on the 6th row and repeat five times and then skip to product 3 on the 11th row and repeat 5 times and so on?

i need a macro which puts the formulas into the cells as per attached.

the number of rows between the "beam" can be variable

the number next to the beam will be variable.

the number of "beam" rows is vaiable

my thoughts where to do a find"beam" and refernce the cells address the create formulas off those points but dont have the skill to code this

I am trying to fill in reference cells horizontally but fix the column and increasing the row number as it fills. For examples I want to start my refence as "=A1" in cell B1. I want to copy this reference horizontally to column Z1 but want the refences to be A1, A2,...,A26. Excel only seems to increase columns when filling horizontally and rows when filling vertically. Transpose works but it's an array which would slow the spreadsheet down.

i want to change the table_array reference without changing formula in every worksheet. I tried using a new worksheet and naming it the same as what is referenced in vlookup table_array but it messed up all the data.

I have to use a different worksheet every month so need a way to change reference OR how to change array data without messing up the worksheets with the vlookup

how to change the formula below which is referencing an internal worksheet, to a forumula that will reference an external worksheet that is located in an excel document on the G: Drive.

=SUMPRODUCT(--(1210laradj_v_2009!F2:F65536="HMO-ALT SELECT"),--(ISNUMBER(MATCH(1210laradj_v_2009!AO2:AO65536,{3,5,9,12,37,39,46,47,54,73,74,75,76,77,78},0))))

So what it's doing is totaling the counts in the 1210laradj worksheet that match columns HMO-ALT SELECT as well as the numbers 3,5,9 etc.

Well now these worksheets will be on a seperate excel spreadsheet located on a network drive, so I am trying to figure out how I can fix this.

I tried adding it in like so, but it fails.

=SUMPRODUCT(--('G:ROC-CLAIMSAudit ResultsProvider infomonthly statsReproc'd claims2011ProductionCounts[0111rpt2235_laradj_v.xls]0111laradj_v_2009'!F2:F65536="HMO-ALT SELECT"),--(ISNUMBER(MATCH(1210laradj_v_2009!AO2:AO65536,{3,5,9,12,37,39,46,47,54,73,74,75,76,77,78},0))))

I have a spreadsheet with temperature data, all in one column (D), that was recorded every 10 minutes for several months. In two adjacent columns (E & F), I would like to record the daily max and min temperatures. I can manually do this with MAX and MIN formulas in column E and F respectively, MAX(D1:D144). But when I copy this formula to the next row, I get MAX(D2:D145) when what I really want is MAX(D145:D288)....and so on...

I have a conditional formula which gives a value based on what the User specifies.

Example of formula is:

=IF($B$1=0,"CONTACT PERSON - OPTIONAL",IF($B$1=5,"CONTACT PERSON (FINANCE ONLY) - MANDATORY",""))

If the result of the string is " CONTACT PERSON (FINANCE ONLY) - MANDATORY " then

- word MANDATORY (not the whole string) should be in RED

- words (FINANCE ONLY) should be in BLUE

- remaining string should be left in BLANK

Not intending to use VBA. Is this possible?

I have run an INDEX and MATCH formula to give me a resultant cell reference number. I now want to copy a cell to this specific cell reference using another formula.

For example the data I want to copy is in cell A1 and in cell A2 I have the result of the index formula (B1).

I know how to manually do a formula for this but wanting to know if there is a uniform formula that I can use that looks at the formula result of cell A2.

I have a lot of titles like "A Company - Strategy A", "A Company - Strategy B" and what I am hoping to do is strip out the part after the hyphen to the cell directly above. This is the case across about 200 columns, I'd imagine this is pretty easy?

The attached spreadsheet makes it very clear.
