Excel 2007 :: Not Being Allowed To Input Formula With Reference To Another Workbook
Feb 13, 2012
I am having trouble making any formula references between 2 different workbooks.
For example, I being typing out my VLOOKUP function on 1 sheet, as soon as I get the table argument, I switch over to the other workbook in which the table is, and I no longer have the VLOOPKUP function active.
I am having this problem for any formula in which I am trying to reference this workbook.
I have ensured they are both saved as Excel workbook documents. I am using Excel 2007
I am migrating a bookkeepping spreadsheet from Quattro v12 (c2001) to Excel 2007 and have hit a stone wall over relative 3-D references.
In this workbook each sheet holds data for one month, and this includes some lagging-12-month calculations -- that is, summing a range on a single cell for the preceding 12 sheets (including this one).
Unexpectedly, this formula: =ISUM('201206:201305'!M6)
gives absolute references, even though I put in no dollar signs after the sheet names. This means it gives the wrong answer when copied to the next sheet to start a new month.
I can find no reference at all to converting the above formula from absolute to relative reference.
I have a code that I need to limit the entries allowed on an input box. I have got it limited to a single value ("S1") but I need to add a second ("S2"). If "S1" or "S2" is not enter I need the input box to reappear until the right value is entered.
Code: Repeater: dbl = InputBox("Enter the S1 or S2 for the rack location you are using", "Rack", "S1", 5, 275) If dbl "S1" Then GoTo Repeater End If
I have encountered some difficulty in modifying a macro I wrote into what I need. I created a macro that searches a column (Column C) for a cell value of, "stop", and then it copies everything above that cell and pastes it onto another sheet. In the sample data set that I was using, "stop" first occurred in cell C541, so the macro copies C1:C540 and pastes it onto another sheet. The problem is that the macro created an absolute reference to C540. What I desire is for the macro to use the 'Find' function to locate the first occurrence of, "stop", offset one cell above that cell, and then reference the active cell (which was positioned by these last two steps) in the range that should be copied. Basically, I'm hoping to have cells C1 through the active cell copied and then pasted onto another sheet.
I'm basically looking for something almost like an inverse function to INDIRECT. This function would first look at a cell's formula as a text string, parse out the first valid cell reference in A1 format, and return that cell as a text string.
Detail: I have a spreadsheet with cells that point to other values. I would like to get only the row number from the first cell reference in the formula residing in a given cell. For example:
Suppose A1 has the formula =AL267. and A2 has the formula =SUM(AL94:AL235)
I would like a formula in B1 that returns the text string, "AL267" so that I would know this is the first reference.
Ideally it could be dragged down to B2 such that it returns the text string "AL94" (and not "AL235") because AL94 is the first cell reference in A2's
Currently I am copying the formulas after hitting ctl+` and pasting that text into a text editor, followed by text operations to manipulate the results into the desired values. Any solution that didn't involve going out to notepad.
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 71 bytes) in /home/eforum/public_html/search.php on line 1155. I have following macro, what worked just fine in 2003. Now I'm working with 2007 and I can't set up the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications Extensibility library. Here's the
I am trying to auto fill one cell with one of several names using different values from another cell. Ex: when one of six numbers (100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105) in input in A2, I want B2 to display a name (Joe, Tom, Steve, Fred, Tyler, Todd) that corresponds to that number. Cells in columns A and B will be formatted as text. Using Excel 2007.
I need to count how many times an input in given on a same cell, and doing so on the hole column. Like when I enter "x" on cell A1 and it adds 1 on B1. If the input on A1 changes then comes back to "x" it adds once again 1 to B1.
For one Row I'm using this code but I really can't reproduce it on the others.
In the spreadsheet shown below I would like the user to select a project via a dropdown list in cell B2 which is from the data set shown in row 7 downwards. Then based on the project they select, they need to be able to see all of the locations associated with that project and choose in B3. Finally they then need to be able to select a team which is associated with the project & location combination chosen in cells B2 and B3.
I am using EXCEL 2007. When I refresh the individual pivot tables, I don't get any error. But when I click on Refresh all Pivot, I get a Reference if not valid error. The source for my pivot is referencing to another workbook. Why is there this error and how can I resolve it?
I am trying to simplify a type of gannt chart bar across a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet has dates across row 3 that are calculated from the first cell F3 with =F3+7 to populate the rest of the row with dates. I want to be able to input a start date in D4, then all the other titles in column A. This start date will start the coloured bar at that start date in the chart, I will then copy/drag that start date cell for however number of weeks for the duration and I want the finish date to auto populate E4 with the finish date and also auto populate the numbers of weeks in C4 for that bar.

I have a simple spreadsheet of an inventory. Each row on this spreadsheet represents the data related to an item. I would like for a user to be able to INPUT a serial number via a userform. Then, I would like for the program to OUTPUT some information about that particular item (a few cells that should be on the same row as the serial number).
I attached an image diagram that may better represent what I am trying to do.
I created one worksheet called: Assumptions. In this worksheet I have 6 different columns representing 6 different cases.
I have completed the first case in a different worksheet called: WL. I would like to copy this case/worksheet WL and be able to change all the reference cells used in case#1: WL to case#2: FA. So all the cells used in my Assumptions worksheet were in the B columns for case 1: WL, for case 2: FA they will all be in the C column, same row, different column.
Any quick way to do the changes?
My case #1 worksheet as over 10 000 formulas, I really don't want to change each and every formula.
I was thinking there was a way to highlight ALL the reference cells used in my Assumption worksheet, so I would have had to drag from B to C cells, only 50 cells. But I can't find it.
I am running EXCEL 2007 on XP. What is the EXCEL cell formula to put in a cell (for example"E5") that will reference the "last" occurrence of a specific text string in column A (For example Chard ) but will show its corresponding column B content (for example its PH number 3.45) regardless of the number of data entries that will be inputted in the future for both column A and B.

I'm having a problem with named ranges in a chart. I'm using Excel 2007 in Windows XP.
I have a line graph with twenty different series all using dynamic ranges. I created each series individually, typing the name and then the dynamic range I had previously defined. As far as I am aware, Excel demands when writing the reference that you specify which sheet/workbook this named range is from, so, given the scopes of my ranges are all 'workbook', I added the name of the workbook to the references.
Series name: Series1
Series values: ='workbook name'!range1
This seems to work fine, but when I save and then re-open the file, the dynamic ranges no longer work. If I go to Select Data and look at the reference for a series, it has been changed thus:
I have a set of sales data and need to create a run rate which is simply = Total Sales/Selling Day
Selling day changes most days.
I put the calculation into my pivot data but it's summing up, (instead on 12 I get 720) so I changed this to Average so I get the right figure in the Pivot but when I then use this field, it doesn't use the Average amount, it uses the summed figure.
I'm working on a decision matrix to evaluate different alternative production methods. Before that criteria have to be choosen and weighted against each other. The user would fill out the yellow/ blue cells with (0=less important; 1=equally; 2=more). Then values are added up and put into some kind of ranking.
The example was done by hand, which costs a lot of concentration. I would now like to extend the matrix - do you know how to fill out the grey cells more efficiently?
I am having trouble inserting a cell reference into a formula. I have a spreadseet that uses data from another workbook. The workbook name changes monthly, so i'd like to be able to place the workbook name in a cell and have the formulas in the spreadsheet use that cell to get the name of the workbook to get the data from. So:
if, for eg, the formula in my spreadsheet is ='[test data file.xlsx]Sheet1'!$B$4+'[test data file.xlsx]Sheet1'!$B$6
I would like to be able to enter test dta file.xlsx into cell A2 of my spreadsheet and replace a reference to A2 into the formulas. I've tried several ways, but can't seem to get it to work.
I created a workbook called "controlelijst.xls" using Excell 2007. In this workbook i created a sheet that i use as a template, it has conditional formatting all over it. That in fact is not the problem. I copy this template for every new issue i have.
The thing i would like to see happening now is when i enter the value "Y" in cell O10 that the active sheet on wich the value is entered becomes hidden. Because the reason for setting this value is that all conditions are met on this sheet and it does not have to be visible anymore unless i unhide it.
The workbook is called EA.xlsm, and contains dozens of charts, tables and pivot tables - all of which pull their data from external files in the same folder. In case it matters, the folder also contains a Word 2007 document which contains embedded charts form the EA.xlsm file and lays them out for printing.
My problem is that all of a sudden, when I try to open the EA.xlsm file, it gives me two consecutive error messages, as follows:
Microsoft Office has identified a potential security concern.
File path: c:My DocumentsEA.xlsm
Data connections have been blocked. If you choose to enable data connections, your computer may no longer be secure. Do not enable the content unless you trust the source of the file. [Enable] / [Disable]
to which I click enable, and then....

Automatic update of links has been disabled. If you choose to enable automatic update of links, your computer may no longer be secure. Do not enable the content unless you trust the source of the file. [Enable] / [Disable]
to which I also click enable.
Excel then opens, but I just get the program with a blue screen. i.e. it looks like you have opened Excel, but not opened a file yet. However, if I try to close Excel, it asks me if I want to save changes to EA.xlsm, and if I try to open EA.xlsm again - it tells me that it is already open. Also, if I press Alt+F11 to open the VBA console - I can see the names of all of the sheet tabs in the file - but when I close the VBA console, it looks as though I do not have a file open again.
I suspect that somehow, somewhere the file is open, but I dont know what I need to do to be able to see/edit it. Or even worse - if it has become corrupt. It would take me about a month to put this file back together again from scratch.
