Solved: Editing Cell references

Q: Solved: Editing Cell references

In Excel using Office 2007;

Is it possible to change a cell reference inside a formula so that a formula itself decides which cells are selected?

E.G.

Formula 1

=IF(A1="Good","Good","Bad")

Formula 2

Somehow goes into Formula 1 and can change the A1 reference to something else, such as A2?

Hi guys, im running MS Excel 2007, have a question hope this makes sense.

I know in MS Word there is a function where you can change any word throughout the document to another word without changing each one individually.

Is there a similar function in MS Excel.

See I have quite a large Workbook which has coloured cells relating to the number that is in there, so for example where ever there is the number 2 the cell is red.

I was wondering is these a function where i can change all of these cells from red to another colour, without changing each one individually?

Cheers

I'm working on a spreadsheet at the moment which displays a range of cells all containing values referenced from another spreadsheet (within the same workbook). This system works fine.

Every day, the original worksheet is updated. So, it has fields already arranged up until the end of the year. A row for every date. Now, needless to say, rows for dates in the future contain no values, and so when the spreadsheet I am working on now references those cells, it displays "$0.00" (which is correct, given I am dealing with financial figures).

Now, all of that works as expected, however, on the spreadsheet I am working on, all of those figures are displayed in a line graph. This line graph, at todays date, shows an enormous drop given that the fields for the rest of the year all show a zero balance.

What I need to do, is to get the remainder of those fields (every field that says "$0.00") to not display anything at all. So, if the value is $0.00, it would not display a value at all, and therefore not show anything on the graph.

Can someone tell me how I can achieve this? I'm sure it can be done with an "if" statement, but I'm not sure how to structure it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a way to have Excel References "stay" on a PC? For example, I have a master workbook with millions of references installed (not really, but you know what I mean). I want to call a macro from that master workbook, but it will not work because that macro needs specific references installed to run. I do not want to have to install references on over 2k workbooks, just so I can use a macro?! What other options do I have?

Using Excel 2003 in Windows XP

I would like to use the contents of one cell as the destination location for copying data.
For example
I have 2 worksheets 1) Results and 2) info
in info
A1 = 'ABC'
C1 = 'Results!O54' < this is calculated based on other data in sheet.

Using a macro, I'd like to copy contents of A1 to cell location 'Results!O54' more specifically to where ever C1 points... C1 will change based on other data in info sheet.

The macro record for action looks like this (but I would like the 'O54' to be based on contents of C1 which changes)
Range("A1").Select
Selection.Copy
Sheets("Results").Select
Range("O54").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste
Sheets("info").Select

There is more to it then that but I think this is where I am stumped.

Dear Forum,
I am working on a long document in Word 2007 at the moment (high-performance laptop, Vista Home Premium SP1). Among other things, I am using charts, copied from Excel into table cells to keep them in place, within the document. These Charts have captions (Figure 1, etc.) and within the text I am referring to these figures with the help of cross references. This works fine until I try and print these pages. I have tried printing to a printer and printing to PDF file format and in both instances the documents gets screwed up. I have attached a pdf file with an example. As far as I can see, what happens is that the chart that the cross reference refers to, pops up itself where the cross reference is embedded. This not only occurs on the output, i.e. printout or pdf file, but appears after the print command in the document itself.

I would be very greatful if anyone had some advice on how to fix this.
Kind regards,
y_serenity

I have a machine where the customer was trying to restore a user account to point to an "old" user area (my documents, application data etc etc), where XP had created a "new" user area that had the username with the "computer name" appended to the end of it.

He says he went to the registry and changed all of the entries that had "computer name" in them, and blanked the ones where all that was there was "computer name" (this is how he explained it to me). So basically it would seem that there is no "computer name" references in the registry any more. Of course, I don't think he made a backup <sigh>

Now, the computer won't boot and he wants me to fix it...it gets to the blue screen "Windows is starting up..." and the hard drive stops and the machine is hung.

I have a sheet with 2 simple columns: Date and Price. I have imported the dates (##/##/####) and the prices ($###,###) by copy/pasting from the search results given to me by a niche database program I use. When the cells paste in, they all have the format "General".

When I try to format the "date" column into dates, it _does_ change the format as far as the cell is concerned, but the content of the cell doesn't adapt to the new format. For example, I have the date as 3/05/2001 and when I change it to a date format of MMM D, YYYY the content should change to March 5, 2001 but it doesn't. It is as if all the cells are forced to stay as text regardless of what the formatting is that I'm applying.

Same problem with the price column: if I change the format to include 2 decimal points, that format does apply to the cells, but the content of each cell remains without a decimal or anything following, as if the content is just text.

I have like 1000 rows in each column, and plan to do this analysis of the database's results frequently, so I'm hoping the answer isn't just to retype the data. There's got to be a way to copy/paste or export or something. Maybe I could copy/paste into notepad first to scrub out any formatting or locking from the niche database program?
 

A:Excel 2007 Cell Values Won't Take On Characteristics of Newly Applied Cell Format

Good news: Made some progress. In thinking that maybe each value had the textual single-quote forcing it to act like text, or maybe if I find/repaced all the dollar signs and commas that had been imported, I accidentally discovered that each and every value in my imported columns has a following space!

Bad news: Seems like Excel has a bug that thinks that if I say "Find=[singleSpace]" "Replace=[null]", then I should be given an error saying "Excel cannot find any data to replace". I think I'm doing the find/replace correctly because it worked on the dollar signs and commas.

Anybody know a workaround for the bug?

Hello Everyone! :-) This is my first time posting at this forum.  I have a Lenovo T520 laptop that is experiencing intermittent problem shutting down when I am trying out brand new 9-cell and 6-cell batteries that are fully charged.  Based on the seller instruction; they said to go into the bios to see if there is a battery resync option and/or charge the battery with the laptop powered off for a minimum of 10hrs before using the new battery.  I followed their instructions but the laptop continued to suddenly powered off while I am using it with a fully charged battery.   Has anyone experiences similar issues and know of any troubleshooting method or fixes?  Of course I first naturally expects the battery to be bad, but I bought 2x 9-cell batteries, the seller then send me an additional 2 x 6-cell batteries because I am having problems with the 9-cell.  The 6-cell also resulted with the same symptom so I find it hard to believe that all 4 batteries are bad.   Here is the info on the batteries I purchased:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/9Cell-Battery-for-Lenovo-ThinkPad-T410-T420-T510-T520-SL410-SL510-E420-E425... Thank you in advance for anyone that can help me to resolve this problem. Best,Vinh Le

I copied a cell from sheet 4 and pasted a link in the target cell (on sheet 1) and the number that was perfectly shown in the source cell was shown twice in the same target cell on sheet 1 of the same Excel 2016 spreadsheet. I have included a partial screen shot of sheet 1 to show the actual image of the double number.

Bottom right cell is a link to the other worksheet (sheet 4) in the same Excel file and in that source cell the number is 12542.09?. For some weird reason, it is showing up here twice in the same cell. This is the second time in the past few days this has happened but the first time I was able to DELETE or CLEAR CONTENTS and it stopped doing that. But not this time.

I'm attempting to write my first macro for an Excel 2003 workbook. I'm not completely code illiterate (I've got moderate skills with AutoLISP), but I'm new to VBA and am not yet an Excel power user, so please be gentle.

The macro I want to write will:
check that the selected cell's content is underlined before proceeding
copy the content of the currently selected cell into an external plain text .log file
.log file lines should be: year/month/day - time - username - cell contents
.log file names will probably need to be generated
clear the cell's content and formatting (particularly underline and text/background color)
Here's what I have so far:
Code:
Sub Unpost()
If Selection.Font.Underline = True
Then Selection.ClearFormats And Selection.Clearcontents
Else
If MsgBox("The selected cell is not underlined...are you sure?", vbOkCancel) = vbOk
Then Selection.ClearFormats And Selection.Clearcontents
Else Exit Sub
End If
End If
End Sub
If I've written it correctly, it should currently do everything except log the cell contents. This, from what I've seen, is going to be the trickier part. I intend to use this macro 50+ times per weekday, so at some point the .log files will get too long to be useful, so I assume it will need to automatically create new logs (perhaps "year-month.log").

Hello,

I cant seem work out a solution for what I'm trying to do. I have an Excel workbook that has multiple sheets. On sheet 1 i want the data from cell "G3" to be copied onto sheet 2. But i want the location on sheet 2 to be based on whatever was entered into cell "D3" on sheet 1.

For example: Sheet 1, cell D3 I have the name John, in cell G3 i have 68. I want "68" to be pasted in sheet 2 in cell B26.

But if the name in Sheet 1 cell D3 is Suzie, then I want G3 to be pasted in Sheet 2 in cell D26. So I would need to identify the paste location for each person.

I want the data to paste to the next cell so that the next entry can be pasted below the last entry for that person (for John the first entry would go into cell B26, then the next entry would go into cell B27 and so on).

But i want it to be a specific range, i dont want data to be pasted past 20 cells (cell B45). If possible a message box could be created to let the user know that the max is reached.

I would appreciate anyone's help with this as i have been struggling for awhile to try to get this. Thank you

Very limited experience with Excel...have a multi page workbook but can't figure out how to auto format existing text to fit in cells so there is no space either on top or bottom of the cell.

Only way I can get this so far is to manually move the bottom line of the text box up to the bottom of the actual text in box. But this causes the print out to overlap sometimes of the text lines in print view.

Is there a way to 'auto-format' individual cells to fit the text in the cell without leaving alot of space above or below the lines, or top/bottom lines, of the cell.

A:Having problem setting cell height to fit text in cell

When you are in the cell that you want to align with the top, Right Click & select Format Cells & when that opens Click on the Alignment Tab & then you will see Horizontal & Vertical, click on the Vertical drop down arrow & select Top. That will align the text to the top of the cell & eliminate that space.

When you move to the next cell to insert the Dollar amount it will be lined up with the bottom of the text in the previous cell, which is what you want.

Text does not work in the same way as numeric data, which seems to be what you want to accomplish; do I understand that you want words to subtract from themselves, or do you simply want to place (in your example) three words each from a different column, separated by a dash, in another column?

Every time I sit down to enter updates for any member, or add new members, etc., I always start by saving my most recent version of the workbook with the date I last updated it in the filename, and then when I finish my updates for the day, I save the current day's updated workbook with the current day's date in the filename, etc. So after a while, I've got quite a stack of versions of the same workbook, albeit with slightly different data in some of the cells, from version to version.

Near the end of the year, it'd be neat to be able to compare the beginning and end of year versions, cell by cell, to see what changed.

Ideally, I'd like to sort of "subtract" one workbook from the other, cell by cell, and display something in the results that shows cells that differ btwn workbooks and cells that don't.

Obviously, I could just print the two versions, and plow through them both, side by side. But they're nearly 2,000 rows deep, all things considered, and with all the data we compile for each member, each row goes up to column AT! That's a lotta data to compare visually cell by cell.

Is anything like what I'd like to do possible?

Thx.

I think this might help if I read this correctly. I used this before to compare three lists I made a long time ago, then when I needed to update them I didn't want to sift through hundreds of entries.

I have two cells, Cell "A" and cell "B", that have a formula in each. Cell "A" has a value that is correct and Cell "B" has a value that is correct. I now have a third cell (cell "C") with a formula that takes the values of cell "A" and cell "B" and multiplies them. The value of the product is wrong in cell "C" as compared to a value performed by a calculator. Cell "C" reports 51,550.64 whereas the calculator reports 51,540. What is the problem.

Thanks
 

A:Excel cell to cell multiply problem

I'm willing to bet that the number you are entering into the calculator are rounded off while the number that Excel is using is not truly rounded off. Even though Excel may display a certain number in a cell due to its format, it is probably using the true value of the number which probably includes several decimal places. What numbers are showing in cells A and B? How are cells A and B formatted? What happens if you increase the number of decimal points in these cells...do the cell number become larger? If so, then Excel is likely using the true values of the cells instead of the display values in its calculations. Provide details of how you are obtaining your cell values so we can confirm that this is happening.

Try the following

TOOLS --> OPTIONS and choose the Calculation Tab. Put a check in the box marked "Precision as Displayed."
NOTE: This will affect all other calculations on the workbook causing changes to other values on the sheet!

Is there a way to copy a col of formula's/math cells to a new col without excel modifying the coordinates?

Scenario: 150 cells of diff equations "located from a1 thru a150" you wish to move to d1 thru d150.

Problem: Excel modifies the coordinates of each pasted formula rendering garbage.

Individual f2, highlite,copy and then paste takes too much time if there are thousands of formulas to move.
thanks, nt
 

A:Copy cell to cell without excel modifying

Use absolute instead of relative references, ie:

$A$1:$A$150

Rgds,
Andy

EDIT: better explanation. You have 5 in A1, and the formula =A1 in B1. If you copy B1 to C1, C1 will read =B1. But if you make B1 =$A$1 and then copy it to C1, it'll hold.

Hi Lenovo experts - I am having a strange issue with my new X270 laptop. I have been using it for over 3 weeks now. The X270 came with an integrated Li-Ion 3-cell battery (23 Wh) and also an external Li-Ion 3-cell battery  (23 Wh). With very light usage (just outlook and office apps) and brightness set to 25%, I can barely get 2h-2.5h of battery life. Is this normal? Per the PSREF, 3+3 cell should give me ~13h of battery life.  Anything else I can check? I did a 'battery report' and I see on average 45 Wh of charging capacity when active. However 'Battery life estimates' show between 2h-3h at full charge. 'Current estimate of battery life based on all observed drains since OS install' is showing 3:50.  Do I have a defective battery? Any advice appreciated!

Hi, all!

I wish to purchase an HP dv5000t series laptop with a 12 Cell Li-Ion battery, but I saw a diagram on the HP site which showed a bulky mass at the back of the laptop, compared to a 6 cell which did not have this. It seems that such a laptop will not be able to sit flat on a desk.

Does anybody know from experience if this will be the case? If so, how bad of an angle is it? Will it interfere with normal use, etc?

Thanks! Your help is appreciated.

If HP sells the battery with the laptop then it'll work. While it may not sit flat that isn't a problem.

I was wondering if it was possible to remove the libraries drop down in Explorer, as it is just a waste of space for me. Network too infact. I only use Favorites and Computer. Also, I would like to change the buttons in the start menu(Documents, Pictures, Music, Videos) to point at the folders themselves, instead of the libraries, is this possible? If so, how would I do that? Thanks!

Hi,
I would like to know if I can delete all orphaned file/path references,shared DLLs,help file references,application path and activeX control references detected by my disk cleaning tool.Will it cause any harm to my PC after deletion?Thank you for your advice.
 

A:Orphaned File References???

I would not simply delete them, but move them to a hold folder. And then use the PC for a few weeks to see if any of them were really needed.

I am currently trying to make an IF statement in Word 2003 that will be conditional on (and auto-fill with) information in 2 different Text Form Fields.

The two fields are bookmarked as "Own1" and "Own2"

I would like it to simply display the input information in the "Own1" field if "Own2" contains no data, but display "Own1 and Own2" if Own2 does contain data.

Just to be very clear, here are the two different examples.
Ex. 1 - Own1 = John Smith ; Own2 is empty

Print - John Smith

Ex.2 - Own1 = John Smith ; Own2 = Jane Smith

Print John Smith and Jane Smith
{IF { FORMTEXT Own2 } <> "" "{ FORMTEXT Own1 } and { FORMTEXT Own2}" "{ FORMTEXT Own1 }" \* CHARFORMAT }

I currently have this as the IF statement and it doesn't work as I want. All it will display is "FORMTEXT" (I have tried this with REF in place of FORMTEXT and I get the same result), unconditional of any text being present in the "Own2" field. It seems as though the IF statement never gets to the comparison part of the IF statement.

Thanks for any help!

I'm writing my dissertation. I am using cross-references for both Tables and Figures (Word 2003). I'm also using EndNote for my references (I have no idea if this has anything to do with the problem).

The problem is that EVERYTIME I print, it does something weird and puts in a large amount of white space before a cross-reference. On average, 3/4 of a page of white space. If I click to the right of the last word before the reference, it highlights all the space as well as the cross-reference for deletion. If I put the cursor right before the cross-reference, I can just back space and delete it all. I delete it all the way back to the word before the cross-reference and add the proper spacing, save and print, it still does the same thing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have an Excel97 spreadsheet that refers to, and summarises, a number of other spreadsheets. The files are all within sub-directories of one single directory held on a NetWare5 file server. I want to be able to copy this complete directory structure to a CD and then onto a laptop to enable it to be updated elsewhere, and then copy it back to the network. The top level directory names are the same on the file server and the laptop.

The problem is that when I copy the files to CD, the formulae all appear in the form:

='\\Sample_nds\.SAMPLE_DATA.sampleltd\StockLists\GROUP 1\[Region 1.xls]Store Summary'!$A$300

with the full NetWare directory handle which is not recognisable on the laptop.

Is there any way of doing this, to allow the files to maintain their linkages when moving them between machines? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Excel97 external references

Evening Steve,

Have you tried clicking on Tools | Options | View and then making sure that the Formulas option in the Windows Options section is Unchecked? That should sort it out once you've finished transferring the pages, although why it would want to check itself just when copying to CD is something I'd have to work on...

Cheers

Liam
