Excel Programming?

Q: Excel Programming?

Say, for example, I have a list of interest rates and the more people I sign up to my program, the higher my interest rate is. The time money would be invest for, is on the left-hand side, and the amount of people signed up is on the top.The items listed down on the left-hand side are as follows:~ Weekly~ Fortnightly~ Monthly~ 2 Months~ 3 MonthsThe top of the cells are from 1 - 10.The interest increase both as they go down, and across to the right.My question about this, is if I were to have a different table, and in that table I have people who sign up people, and I have (I have cell referenced each part)A1 - NameA2 - People signed upA3 - Interest rateB1 - JohnB2 - 3B3 - (the interest rate)C1 - AimeeC2 - 7C3 - (the interest rate)I was to know that from the first table set up, how can I get Column 3 to represent the cell from the amount of people that have signed up. So, that in Column 3, the interest rate that is shown is from the first table, and gets the amount of interest from the people signed up.No, it's not just simple "cell referencing" because I want the interest rate to be based on both the, time period, and how many people signed up, and I want it to be automatic instead of me doing it manually.Is it possible?NOTE: Here is a perfect example of what I want to achieve, just some things change.

Preferred Solution: Excel Programming?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm not an Excel guru but I'm sure that you could make something work with either a combination of VLookup and HLookup or just Hlookup and an if statement.Here's a pretty good link on embedded vlookups. hlookups work the same way except it searches by the row rather than a column.http://pubs.logicalexpressions.com/Pub0009...icle.asp?ID=446

A:VBA programming on excel

Hi cub18,

Welcome to the forums.

Plenty of people will help you on here, but you need to give a bit more information, and an attached spreadsheet is always a great benefit when attempting to solve issues like this.

It sounds like you just need to use conditional formatting, but again it depends on the details.

I was asked to make a program using excel for the main purpose of managing shares, stocks, investments and others. That's why I am looking for good tutorials for excel programming, for this will be my first time doing something of the sort.
If any1 could give good recomendations and/or tips, it would be fantastic.
Thanks in advance guys. As usual, life savers ;)

Just noticed that Excel Programming is VB. So also comments on this area would be helpful.

Anybody know how to format a cell like this?

I would like my cell to total up a bunch of items, much like the Epsilon (at sum), but then I want the display font to be blue when it is positive, and then red when it is negative.

Thank you.

"There are no stupid questions, just stupid people." -- Mr. Garrison on South Park

A:Excel Programming... or formatting

Highlight the cell, rows or columns you want formatted. On the Menu-Format>Conditional Formatting. Using the
Cell is: Greater than: 0 and
Cell is: Less than: 0
and specifing the patterns or font you want for each particular scenario should get you what you want.

The above uses two Conditional Formats you may be able to get your conditions set up using only one box. It also leaves 0 without a format so you may want it to be inclusive on the negative or positive result.

I have two spreadsheets; the first has two columns, UPC and ITEM; the second has many columns of which UPC is one. I need to create a lookup function or something that will insert the value of ITEM from the first spreadshet into a new column I will create in the second spreadsheet based on the UPC matching. I prefer to use Access for these situations but I don't want to do that with this data. Is this easy to do?

Hi Guys,

Let me start off by stating that I'm still trying to learn all the juicy functions you can do with Excel, and I've just gotten myself a little project where I think I can learn but I need some kind of help from you guys.

Basically what I'm trying to do is somehow automate a creation of a report via excel, first method I thought of was to use macros, but since the data that'll be included in the report will be on a different cell each time, macro might not work as I imagined it to be, then I thought of the IF function, I have not yet tried doing that, but would that work? Can you please share your thoughts? Ask me any additional info and i'll try to explain it as simple as I can.

Hello to the members of Tech Support. This is my first post, so thanks in advance for the help! So here is goes.

-I have 9 worksheets with approximately 77500 rows and 23 columns of data between all nine.
-At the top of the worksheet I have a table data running from E7 to N7. This data is carried over from the previous month's data.
-Column AA has a formula: =Z13+(O13-Q13)*3340.4
Where Z13 is the first row where the data begins, and Z### is where the data ends. Rows of data vary from month to month. The formula carries on such that row 14 uses the same formula but insert 14 vice 13. The number 3340.4 is the number found in cell E7 and always the multiplier in the formula.
-Column AA on worksheet 2 requires the same formula. =Z13+(O13-Q13)*4567.3. However note that the 4567.3 is the next number over in cell F7 and is now the multiplier until the last row.
-Worksheet 2 has a different number of rows (which also varies from month to month.).
-The data for each month is always found in cells E7-N7.

Worksheet 3 would use date in G7 and so on....

Any help with the coding of this Macro would be greatly appreciated.
Can someone help me with the macro to automatically

Question to the group:
I do a lot of intensive VBA programming within MS Access (2003 and 2010) for clients and have always programmed on PC platforms within Windows 2000, XP, 7 operating systems. Everything's worked just great. No problems.
I recently purchased a MacBook Pro and had Windows 7 installed on Bootcamp. I've installed MS Office 2010 and the installations are all humming along nicely and everyone seems to be playing well together.
My problem is that my existing Excel and Access applications that use VBA code generate boatloads of errors on the Mac platform (with Windows 7 running on Bootcamp). Attempts to program anything but the simplest VBA scripts also generate errors that do not appear on the PC platforms.
My questions are: Is this a problem with References or program/computer settings? Have other programmers tried to do the same thing I am doing and had the same problems? Is the Mac system simply incompatible with a Bootcamp/Windows/Office/VBA layering? Is there a solution? I can't find any other references to this problem in the searches I have performed so far. Any input would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

hi to all,

i'm writting a marco to populate the row and col in the spreadsheet. I provide an form interface for the user to key in the data before reflect the data in the spreadsheet. my question is how do i detect the first blank row and transfer the data into that blank row in the spreadsheet.

i only have 9 columns and therefore i hardcode the colum, however, i need to find the blank rows so as to insert the data.

Cells(currentRow, 1) = txtTime.Text
Cells(currentRow, 1) = txtDate.Text

can someone tell me how to fiind the index of the rows???????

Thank in advance

A:excel marco programming detecting blank row

The code you have writes txtTime and txtDate to the same cell. Try:

newrow = Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row + 1
Cells(newrow, 1) = txtTime.Text
Cells(newrow, 2) = txtDate.Text

, assuming you have at least one row already.

I couldn't tell you what data type to use for newrow. Zack could tho', he might drop by later.

I am writing a food costing program using excel. The program is designed to pull prices from various tabs(different suppliers) to a main Supplier Costing Page containing all the information on products for all suppliers. The code allows the user to enter in the name of the product, then uses the LOOKUP function to search for the product and returns the value in that row. The code I used to pull the information from the different suppliers works properly:

A19 value Steak Strip Loin C/C St. Silver FRSH


Centennial is the tab for that supplier. It pulls the correct value from the page 0.74, to cell R19
The problem I am having is that when I try to use this format of code on another tab it does not return the correct value:

=LOOKUP(A33,'Supplier Costing'!$A$6:'Supplier Costing'!$A$100,'Supplier Costing'!$R$6:'Supplier Costing'!$R$100)

The code should return the same value of the previous line of code as it is the same product:0.74 to cell R33 this time, however it returns the value of another product on the Supplier Costing tab. Is the LOOKUP function not searching the tab for the whole string? Any help or suggestions would be extremely helpfull. Thanks

If you're really determined to build such a program it'll take years just to type out the dictionary database. However, if you use Perl to do the processing with an HTML interface you can atleast get started. Perl is free to download from :


and there are literally thousands and thousands of tutorial sites on Perl, HTML and lots of other languages.

Perl is good for doing letter and word searching functions, though not the best. But it is free and nice and flexible.Following is a Perl tutorial.

I'm going to go back to programming, but the last compiler I used was Borland C++ version 3. I have version 6 in my shopping basket at Amazon, but was wondering if I should look at VB .Net.

The reason I'm curious, is that C++ doesn't seem to be mentioned anymore, and it may be a dying code. The version I can get for the same price is Visual Basic .NET Standard 2003 from Microsoft.

As they're retailed at ~£70, I don't want to get C++ and start learning again, and compiling a few programs, etc, to find out its no good. I know that .Net is for the web, whereas C++ is Windows based. But what are the other differences?

Hello, I have a project and I just need some help getting on the right track. Is there anyone out there that can get me started on the right foot. O.K and the problems goes like this; I have to write equivalent expressions for each of the following, then write a program to show that the original expression and the new expression in each case are equivalent:

a) ! ( x < 5 ) && ! ( y >= 7 )
b) ! ( a == b ) || ! ( g != 5 )
c) ! ( x <= 8 ) && ( y > 4 )
d) ! ( i > 4 ) || ( j <= 6 )

Can anyone HELP me out Please!!


A:Programming in C++ Help!

Hi Rhino24,

Let's see now:
a) states: ! ( x < 5 ) && ! ( y >= 7 ) which means ( x >= 5 && y < 7 )
b) states: ! ( a == b ) || ! ( g != 5 ) which means ( a != b) || ( g == 5)
c) states: ! ( x <= 8 ) && ( y > 4 ) which means ( x > 8) && ( y > 4 )
d) states: ! ( i > 4 ) || ( j <= 6 ) which means ( i <= 4) || ( j <= 6)

I would assume a program to demonstrate the equivalences would be to assign differenent values to each of the variables and then compute the equivalent expressions separately and then compare whether they are equal or not and print either "equal" if they are, and "not equal" if they are not - all in C++, I assume.

Hello everyone.

I am a college student in the Computer Information systems field. I have decided that programming is one of the areas which I wish to study. I really want to learn as much as I can about programming and it's how-tos and such, but I ma a bit impatient when it comes to waiting on certain quarters for certain courses. I was wondering if there are any certain Web sites which I could look at to begin learning independently? I will be starting a course in C++ in January, but I know little about this language. Will I need a certain software application to program in this language, or can I use any type of word processing program or MS-DOS application?
I am just wondering if there are any areas out there with resources on how to independently learn various programming languages. I don't have much money at all, so I cannot afford to buy books or other materials such as software...Fortunately, I have financial assistance and scholarships to pay for college...
Thanks in advance for any help and guidance.

Thank you very much!!

A:Programming Anyone??

Internet access to a DMBS (eg Access) has this data flow:


the browser[1]
has a web page
usually some < form data >
click submit -------> http GET or POST ---> webserver[2]

---> webserver[2] -- runs the requested CGI program
which accesses the DBMS
reads the query results
formats a HTTP reply
browser[2] <----------------- and writes it to STDOUT

So you need
1) HTML coding for the browser,
2) CGI programming to receive the request (eg PHP,Perl)
3) and an API to connect/query to your Access DBMS
(btw: it needs to be on the webserver, not your pc)

It reallly depends on what operating system you are running. But, I will guess that you are running Windows. I never really found a good online tutorial outlining windows gui programming. I would recomend that you get any book by Herbert Schildt. I got Windows 2000 Programming from the Ground Up by him and I learned so much. I would especially recomend that book to you, except for the fact that it is geared towards C++.

Hi, I'm wanting to learn to do some programming. I just need to know where I can get the stuff to do it with. What exactly do I need? Recommendations? Where can I get it? I'm really wanting to learn how to do this. Please help.

P.S. I've done some minor basic programming, but i want to learn to be able to write major programs. Or at least the steps I need to take to be able to write decent programs. Anything will help. I've writtin small programs to return text results, but I want to do more, like learn a little about making games, apps, etc.
