  • 1. Reference blank cells in formula
    I am creating a spreadsheet of stock market data which will be based on calendar days, not market days. Each year's worth of daily data is in a column with the date to the left of the data. Because I am using consecutive calendar dates, there will be blank cells for Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. To the right of each piece of daily data, I want to create a formula that determines the percentage gain or loss on that day from the previous trading day's price. The problem is if I reference the data for the row above today's date to perform the calculation, the calculation will not work on the days immediately following blank dates (Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays). There are as many as three blanks preceding some days and I would love it if someone could tell me how to tell Excel I want to subtract the prior trading day's price (going back to the first non-blank cell above today's data) from today's data and divide the result by the prior trading day's price. Thanks in advance for any help on this.
  • 2. Global Macro
    I have recorded a macro that creates and formats a chart in Excel 2000. I need to run this macro in other workbooks with the same type of data. This macro also formats the raw data before creating the chart. When I run the macro it formats the data and creates the chart just fine. But when it starts to format the chart I get an error message "Run-time error '9': Subscript out of range". When I run the debugger a line containing the original sheet reference in another workbook is highlighted. How do I get rid of the specific reference so that the macro will run in other workbooks?
  • 3. Can I turn off Compatibility Checker?
    I am working on a macro that is using a loop and part of the loop involves saving files with unique names. Problem is that every time it loops through and tries to save the file, the compatibility checker pops up to notify me of minor fidelity loss. Having to check this box each time kills the whole idea of automating the process I am working on. Can I turn off the compatibility checker globally?
  • 4. Dashboard
    I am not an expert at Excel, but can do a few things --- the one thing that I cannot do is create a web-based dashboard using Excel. What I would like to do is create a dashboard from one like you see with flahing red, yellow & green lights something that looks dynamic. It would be great if the dashboard could be updated via an Excel spreadsheet and I also have a work website that is SharePoint --- I am the Administrator (not savvey in this tool) but if I could create the Excel spreadsheet and send it to SharePoint and have it look like an automated dashboard that would be FANTASTIC! Please any help would be appreciated --- just remember to give me step by step directions --- thanks :) -- flojoe
  • 5. Deleting worksheet breaks my formulas
    I have a spreadsheet with a number of tabs. The first tab is my "totals" where there are formulas to total certain cells in each of the other tabs. Each week I send the workbook out to a number of individuals asking them to update the tab with their name. When I receive their replies, I delete their old tab and copy in their new tab. This breaks my formulas in the totals tab, even though the copied in sheets's tabs have the same names. Is there any way I can keep excel from tracking whether or not the tabs are there until I am ready to calculate the totals? I already set them to manual calculation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Using a formula to carry totals from 1 sheet to another

Postby S0dCMDAz » Mon, 11 May 2009 02:10:01 GMT

I use the formula ='[RENT-EXCEL 2009.xlsx]APR09'!N2 to carry amounts from one 
workbook sheet to another.  My problem is I have 83 amounts to carry over and 
I have to do each one seperately by changing the "N" line number each time 
and then I have to verify my worksheet name for each entry.

Is there an easier way.

Copying that formula down will change the reference to N3,4,.... If you are 
not looking for a continuous reference, please let us know whats the next row 
to be referred after 2....

2 questions:

After N2, which direction are you looking to copy *from*, across (O2),
OR down (N3)?

On the second sheet, which direction are you looking to paste *to*;
down or across?

1.carrying entire row to another sheet using vlookup

Hi,

I would like to use a vlookup function but instead of bringing back one
cell (for example 3rd cell to the right of the value) I would like to
bring back an entire column. How do I do that?

Thanks,

2.setting a formula in cell on a totals sheet using VB

Need Help,

I have a Totals sheet with several worksheets that represent projects. The
number of worksheets(projects) will be added or deleted depending on project
completions. 

What I'm trying to do is have a Macro to run that will count the number of
worksheets (since the number is not constant) and force the formula -
+ 'sheetName" !B2 + 'sheetName' !B2 - into cell B2 on the Totals sheet.
Can anyone help

3.Carrying formulas from one sheet to the next within the same file

I have 52 tabs set up, one for each week of the year.  I enter data in the 
top of my grid on one sheet and I want it to add it to the cumulative total 
below.  Each week I want to copy and paste the grid with formulas to the next 
week (worksheet) but it is not carrying over the formulas.  I have the name 
of the referenced sheet in quotes in the formula.  How do I overcome this so 
I do not have to plug in the formulas every week?  Thanks in advance.

5.carrying over a column formula from one sheet to another copied sh

I have a worksheet that has three columns all part of a formula.  Very 
simple, the first column is the beginning subtotal, the second is any 
additional numbers, the last column is the total of the two previous columns. 
 

I want to make copies of the master sheet and carry over the total from one 
sheet to the next copied sheet, however I need the numbers in the Total 
column to end up in the Subtotal column of the copied sheet, and so on with 
multiple copies.

Can this be done?

Thank you for your valued suggestions!  Carl
