Macro To Replace Formula Reference

Jun 26, 2007

I have created a workbook that generates new worksheets with unique identifiers as tab names. I.e. On a "Create New Sheet" worksheet, input three pieces of data, click "Create New Sheet" and this data is applied to a template sheet, macro continues running to copy the template and rename is with a unique SKU.

My problem is as follows: I have yet to figure out how to generate an Index page that is updated as each new sheet is added with the following:

a) Cell containing the SKU and a hyperlink (or some other link) to that particular tab, and
b) Beside this cell, pull the contents of certain cells from that SKU's tab (such as description, but also the contents of calculated fields on that SKU's tab like current quantity and current price).

I would like the Index to be live so that if data is changed on the SKU's tab, it flows through to the Index......

Reference Another Workbook In Formula

Nov 11, 2009

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.

Reference Another Workbook In A Formula

May 15, 2007

I have a formula that calculates data from the workbook that the formula is in. I need it to do the same calculations only pull the data from another workbook. Here is a sample formula:

= SUM(X1504 + SUMPRODUCT((H1:H394=73)*(U1:U394="NVLIV"),S1:S394))

Would I do something to the nature of:

=SUM(C:/sample.xls[Sheet1$x1504] + SUMPROD...etc...?

Basically how do you reference another workbook that is closed?

SaveAs Method With Filename Derived From Cell Reference

Jul 24, 2012

I am trying to use a cell reference to have excel automatically Save a worksheet using a cell reference as the workbook name. When I step through the code and use the immediate window I get the correct name for the file (fname in this case) but as soon as Excel tries to save the file, I get an error.

Here is the code I am using:

fname = Sheet3.Range("I1").Value
ChDir "S:Op CostsBudget 2013Data"
MsgBox "The actice file will be saved as " & fname
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs filename:= _

Formula With Cell To Reference Other Workbook?

Mar 19, 2014

So finally got my sumrpod working using this formula

=SUMPRODUCT(1*('Q:Documents13-14 FCGP CONTRACTING13-14 TrackingSouthPac - Team Use Only[South Pac Load Tracker - MAR14.xlsm]SPECIALS TEAM NZ'!$C8:$C10000=A5))

e.g A1 = South Pac Load Tracker - MAR14.xlsm

Formula would read =SUMPRODUCT(1*('Q:Documents13-14 FCGP CONTRACTING13-14 TrackingSouthPac - Team Use Only[' & a1 & ;]SPECIALS TEAM NZ'!$C8:$C10000=A5))

Oct 31, 2008

I have the following codes in which I am to refer a file and folder to do some further processes.

myfilename = "C:Documents and settingsacsMy DocumentsEntrymyfile1.xls"
folderPath = "C:Documents and settingsacsMy DocumentsEntry"

I want to enter these two paths in a sheet in my excel report file (For example, I am running the report from Report1.xls, in which there is a sheet name "Filepaths". In this,

in B5, I would like to enter the Filepath (B5 named as "FILEPATH")

So that, if I am copying the folder to another area, I no need to change the code every time in the VBA editor. I can do changes in these cells and it will be taken as the path to run the code further.

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

Formula Copy & Paste: Reference Other Worksheets Within The Workbook, Are Copied Over As Links

Apr 28, 2007

I'm trying to perform a copy & paste operation by hand which to me should be easy in theory. I have a worksheet whose formulas have been corrupted. I have a backup of this sheet- I'd like to copy the backup sheet into the workbook. The problem is that the formulas, which reference other worksheets within the workbook, are copied over as links to the backup workbook instead of the new workbook they are being copied too. This seems simple, but how do I copy the worksheet and the references without having to go through all of the references by hand to only apply to the local book.

Workbook To Check It Filename Once Opened

Dec 29, 2009

I am trying to ensure that m work book keeps the same name even when I email it to others.

I have been told on this forum that it is possible for a workbook to check its own name once opened?

I have two different names that this file can be called 1st is the one that is in use all the time and the 2nd is a archive version where the name changes each month.

The file name I wish to keep the same for the no archived version is Toolbox and a predetermined number I have a workings sheet called workings and in a cell i have a formula =TEXT("Toolbox Application " & Cover!E10,) this will give me the file name that i need to check for example it could be Toolbox Application 00089 or Toolbox Application 00967.

I also have a cmd that archives the workbook and saves it as Toolbox and the Month it was for Toolbox for Jan for example

I also need this to open if it is an archive

if neither of the names match i need the workbook to close and a msgbox to tell user to rename the workbook correctly.

Creating New Workbook Then Giving It A Custom Filename?

May 25, 2012

I am building a macro and am just not figuring out how to do this. I am trying to create a new workbook, then give it a name. Simple right? Well, I have the format for the file name to be "mm-dd-yy Transmittal #.xlsx" but I can't figure out how to make the # part of that equation start as 1 but if the file already exists change it to 2, if that exists, change it to 3, and so on. Here's what I have so far:

Sub Transmittal()
Dim NewBook As Workbook
Dim MyPath As String


I don't think I'm allowed to do "x + 1" so that is probably where my problem is coming from.

Recording Macro To Save Workbook Using Filename In Cell?

Aug 5, 2013

I'm trying to record a macro that calls up the saveas dialogue and uses a filename from a cell (it's the w/c date). I can start recording the macro, open the dialogue box and copy the contents of the cell but i can't get it to paste as the filname.

What I'm trying to achieve is to allow users of a muli-sheet workbook to be able to click on a 'save' button on any sheet and have the workbook save with a filename which includes the current week commencing date. This way all the weeks changes will be in just one file and from the following monday a new file will be started the the old one left alone as an archive.

Replace Fixed Reference In 0000's Of VLOOKUPs

Nov 23, 2009

Is there a more efficient way that I can swap out an ending fixed reference value in thousands of vlookup formulas across many pages within the same workbook? For example, let's say one of my vlookup formulas is: =vlookup(A2,'Apples!'$A$2:$W$47,7,false)

and I want to change the range to 'Apples!'$A$2:$W$200, across several variations of the same formula, across several pages within the same workbook. Can this be done easily without tackling each sheet separately using copy, paste special, formula?

Get Filename With Formula

Aug 7, 2008

I am trying to use the formula below to get the filename of the spreadsheet, it seems to work fine but when you open a second sheet the first sheet will pick up the name of the second. =MID(CELL("filename"), FIND("[",CELL("filename"))+1,FIND("]",CELL("filename"))-FIND("[",CELL("filename"))-1). These spreadsheets will then be uploaded to another application and having 2 with the same name could cause issues. Obviously the answer is to only open one at a time, but this is always subject to human error!
