Copying Contents of a cell using VBA

Hello everyone;

I've browsed the forums for a while, but have not found a similiar question so far. Hopefully someone will be able to help me.

I'm looking to copy the contents of a cell to another worksheet without excel trying to automatically alter the relative references, which results in a bunch of #Ref errors.

The equation I have is currently located on sheet1!B58, and is as follows:

=IF(AC2="Yes",Sheet1!$F$29,IF(AC2="No",Sheet1!$F$30,Sheet1!$F$31))+IF(AD2="Yes",Sheet1!$F$32,IF(AD2= "No",Sheet1!$F$33,Sheet1!$F$34))

I am looking to copy the exact text/equation into Sheet2!A2 using VBA. The contents after being moved to Sheet2!A2 will later be filled down, so the absolute and relative references must be retained as written above.

The typical path if doing this manually would be copying the text from the equation line, and pasting it into the cell.

I hope this is enough information for you all to be able to assist me.

Thanks in advance!


Hi,

I have a worksheet with ~3000 rows in. I need to copy the contents of a cell into the comments of another cell. For example, in Column F I have some help text that I would like to move into the comments of Column B. Is there a way to do this in a Macro?

Any help would be very greatly appreciated...

Thanks

Want to Copy the COntents of a cell and not the cell with VBA Macro

I am looking to keep the Contents of a cell ready to be pasted in an email textbox.
I have a bunch of emails appended in a cell with the help of a macro however going one step further I would like the contents of the cell and not the cell to be stored in the Copy ClipBoard and when I put my cursor in the To,CC,BCC text boxes then I can simply CONTRL+V or Right Click Paste

Can the contents of a Cell be copied to another Cell by simple Hovering?

Dear Forum,

I am no VBA Expert but follow the logics very well if a File's attached..with some comments.

Now, the requirement is that I have sesveral HEADERS that is going to be horizontally placed from Columns A till Q.. Lets say with the name of Different Processes.

And I have the Database below this Headers form Row 3 till Row 103..

Now lets say these Headers containing the Different Processes are present from A1 till Q1 and I want to simply Hover over any of these headers and want the contents copied in cells B3 onwards till B103.

Now i know that we can use a Dropdown, howeer this has to be done fast and if this is possible via VBA I will happy to use this feature,,

The way it would work is if I am hovering my Mouse over Cell A1 which has the Process of "Research" then this text should get copied to the Cell B3 which is already SELECTED prior to hovering...
The values should be copied to only clolumn 2 i.e B3 till B103..

I am not sure but hope this is possible through VBA..

Warm Regards

I am looking to select entire rows (Using code to go into a macro) based on partial contents of a cell. In the attached spreadsheet example I need to select the highlighted area. This is based on the first 4 characters in column A. i.e. the range is column A with the characters AB11 TO AB92. I have been asssuming that I need to use the "MID" function in some way but have failed miserably with each attempt I have made with creating the code (Probaly due to my lack of VBA skills and understanding of the MID function).
If anyone could give some pointers it would be appreciated.

(P.S. I asked a similar question in a different thread but over complicated it by putting in the next stage. I marked that thread as "SOLVED" and put in a comment to say I was going to start a new thread. Please advise if that is the correct way of handling it or should I have done it another way i.e. ask a moderator to close/delete the thread etc)

I'm trying to figure out how the return the contents of another cell. For example, I want cell B2 to reflect the contents of cell A1 such that if the spreadsheet user changes the contents of cell A1, it show up in B2 as well, and I need to set this up using VBA.

In excel, if I type "=A1" into cell B2, then whenever the contents of cell A1 is changed by the spreadsheet user, the contents of cell B2 automatically changes as well without running my VBA macro again.

Using VBA, if I do: cell(B2) = cell(A1)
cell B2 contains the contents of cell A1, but if the user changes the contents of cell A1, cell B2 does not update to reflect that automatically.

Thanks for any help you can offer,
Steve

I would like to copy the content of a cell which a function is set to it.
Once I just copy and paste the cell to another one, actually the function
is copied. But I want to modify the content. So how can I copy the actual
content?

Thanks a lot!!!

How do I copy the contents of a cell from one workbook to another (as a
formula)? I tried '=[workbook name]worksheet name!cell name' but that
doesn't seem to work

I want to clear the content of a whole worksheet using VBA.
Does anyone know how to do it?

Thanks!

Hi, I'm trying to use the contents of a cell (as opposed to the actual cell)
in a Formula. For example – in the following Statement:

=AVERAGE(IF((PRICES!D$32848$34120=A44),PRICES!P$ 32848:P$34120))

Instead of using ‘PRICES!D$32848$34120’, I want to use the contents of
another cell – lets say Cell A2’

Cell A2 would contain the character expression ‘PRICES!D$32848$34120’

So the statement above would read something like:

=AVERAGE(IF((? A2 ?),PRICES!P$32848:P$34120))

How do I get the statement above to recognize the contents of cell A2
instead of cell A2?

I know I could create a label range but what I am trying to do will work
much better if I can refer to the contents of a given cell.

I seem to remember being able to do this long ago in Lotus.

Thanks,

hi all, exist a way for copy the content of a cell to other with formula?

sample: in cell A10 i have: =Sum(a1:a9)

sum(a1:a9) = 250

exist a way for store in cell A10 the value: 250? without formula?

only the result of the formula?

thanks

Is there any way to automatically copy part of a cell's content to another cell?

Eg. In A1 on sheet1, I have the text "Sony - TV". However, in A1 on sheet2, I want the word "TV" to be replaced with something else, say, "discman". So A2 would say "Sony - discman".

Is there any way to maintain the text "Sony" and have excel automatically change "tv" to "discman"?
Reason is that I have different brands (Panasonic, Sharp etc) so I will just be entering the brand in A1 on sheet1. I want it to be copied onto A1 on sheet 2 but only the 2nd part of the word is changes.

Thanks in advance.

I currently have a simple If statement evaluate the contents of a cell on another worksheet Lets call it WK1.

If the value of the cell in WK1 meets the criteria, it is copied to the formula cell in the active worksheet (we'll call this WK2). (simple stuff so far)

Now I want to nest another IF statement (within the first one mentioned) which evaluates the color of the cell in WK1; copying it (or turning on the same color in the formula cell) if the cell color being evaluated is a specific value (not clear)

Conditional formatting will not do the trick here, as I sort the "if formula" cells in WK2....

I notice conditional formatting doesn't change or follow cells when they're sorted...however, if the cell is colored manually, the cell color does move with the value when sorted. I use the color to separate names from an aphabetized list. (former employees vs current employees)

I hope to have a solution in the workbook... as opposed to a macro...
Thanks in advance.

could anybody give hint to copy contents of adjacent cells in a column in a single cell?

I am trying to determine if somehow I can use the contents of a cell
contining a date to satisfy the result_vector argument in the function
LOOKUP(lookup_value,lookup_vector,result_vector), and if so how?

I have a spreadsheet (Sheet1) that has say 10 rows (1-10) of data in 15
columns (A-O). I have column labels in Row 1. Column A is labelled FName.
Columns B through O are labelled with dates (note:Cell B1 has a specific date
and cells C1:O1 are then calculated dates based on cell B1).

My issue: I wish to make a small report on a separate sheet (Sheet2) that
will populate the report with data from Sheet1 once I enter a valid name and
a valid date on my report in Sheet2. For example: If I enter Bob in cell
Sheet2!A1 and and a valid date in cell Sheet2!B1, I was hoping that in new
cell Sheet2!A2 I could use the LOOKUP function to retrieve the contents from
Sheet1 at the intersection of Bob and the date I have inserted in cell
Sheet2!B1. The LOOKUP function accepts the contents of cell Sheet2!A1 as a
valid argument for lookup_value, and I have given a name to cells
Sheet1!A2:A9 and used it to satisfy the argument for look_up vector, and
these both work fine. I cannot seem to figure out how to get the contents of
cell Sheet2!B1 to satisfy the result_vector argument and thus return the
contents from the corresponding cell in Sheet1. Any suggestions would be
greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi all,

is there any functions (I guess Text related) that can copy the content of a cell as is? in other words, say I have cell A1 with the content of:

a man dance with his wife in chicago, my home town
and A2 has:
=REPLACE(A1,30,8,"Miami")

if I drag B2 to B10 the result will be Miami (b2-b10). I would like to COPY the sentence:
a man dance with his wife in Miami, my home town AS IS. meaning no formula just the text in cell A2. is there's a way doing it?

thanks

Morning,

I can't remember how to split the contents of a cell into different cells.

Currently I have:
A1 = 41-33.91
would like to have:
B1 = 41
C1 = 33
D1 = 91

A2 = 41-38.00

B2 = 41
C2 = 38
D2 = 00
etc.

Ideally would like to have it in VBA because I have 5345 rows that needs to be split, but a formula would be fine. I would just copy the formula into the other cells.

Thanks in advance,

George

Hi,

I'm trying to update the contents of one cell using the value of a cell in another workbook. The msgbox displays the correct value, but I don't see the value in the sheet once the macro's complete. does anybody know why?


	VB:
	
 
ThisWorkbook.Activate 
Sheets("sheet1").Select 
 
Range("B9").value = Workbooks(Dir(sFullFileName)).Worksheets("sheet2").Range("K2").value 
MsgBox (Range("B9").value)

Hi All
Happy festive season hope you've all had a good one.

I have written some code which returns a cell reference to a particular cell (an1). I am now trying to cause another cell on another ws to fill with the contents of a cell from the original ws provided an "a" is in the offset(0,-1). I can get it to work but it gives me the contents of the offset cell an1 and not the value of that cell which is in fact $c$436.
During debug the value of myAddress shows as $C$436 but actually takes the contents of the offset AN1.
My attempt at code is below.
Thanks
Niggle
And a prosperous New Year

	VB:
	
 NameEntry() 
    Dim myAddress As Range 
    Dim wsDaily As Worksheet 
    Dim wsFirst As Worksheet 
    Set wsFirst = Sheets("MAR First Visit") 
    Set wsDaily = Sheets("Daily Visits Mar") 
    Set myAddress = wsDaily.Range("an1") 
    If myAddress.Offset(0, -1) = "a" Then 
        wsFirst.Range("c5").Value = myAddress.Offset(0, 1).Value 
         
         
    End If 
     
End Sub

Hello, I am having a problem with Excel 2000 installed on my mother's pc which is running Windows ME. Whenever you attempt to type "5" into a cell, it changes to a 6 if you move out of the cell or input a decimal point. For example, if you input 5.1 then when you hit the "." the 5 immediately turns into a "6" and the contents of the cell will be "6." If you input 55 then it will change to 56. The actual value of the cell changes- if you have type the value 5 into cell A1 for example it will change to a 6. If you then make A2 = A1 + 1 then it will calculate it as 7, proving that the actual cell value of A1 has changed from 5 to 6. If you make the contents of a cell = 4+1 then it will show 5. If I email the spreadsheet to my own computer then I can enter 5s with no problems.

So far, I've checked the following. I've scanned the whole computer with Norton AV (with up to date definitions) and not found anything. Ditto with Adaware. I've checked to see if there any any macros defined in excel (using shift F11), but I can't see any (in any case, can a macro update a cell as you type it in and before you've "entered" it?). I've gone to the addins menu and no addins are ticked. I've started the computer in safe mode. I've checked that no .xla files are loaded at start up. I've stopped all processes except explorer running. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Office 2000. Even with a clean install, running in safe mode and only explorer and excel running, the problem is still there. Has anyone got any ideas??!

Hi,

Is there a quick and dirty way of converting the content of a cell to text, regardless of what the format of that cell is?

For example, if the number is 1355 and the format is number with 2 decimals, we will see "1355.00" displayed. I want this content to be copied to another cell. Another example would be with dates. 39528 becomes "March 21, 2008" with a particular date format. I'd like to keep every single character in this cell the way it is and copy the cell over to another cell formatted as text.

Thanks for your help.

I am trying to get Lookup to display the contents of a cell by using the
following formula:

=LOOKUP(TOTALS!G5,{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10},{"B99","B 100","B101","B102","B103"})

However all that I can get to display is the text B99 and not the contents
of this cell.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

I created a simple keyboard macro to edit the contents of a cell by simply
inserting a "b" in a particular position. For example, I have a series of
alphanumeric numbers that start with S1253, e.g., S12536675. I wanted to
insert a "b" after the first five digits on the left to revise the series of
alphanumeric numbers to start with S1253b, e.g..S1253b6675. However, after
creating the keyboard macro, when I run the macro on the next cell to be
edited (i.e., S12536676), the macro simply copies the contents of the
original cell that I edited when I first created the keyboard macro (i.e.,
S1253b6675), rather than simply inserting a "b" n the fifth position from the
left as I desired. Any ideas on what is going on here???

I have information held in a separate worksheet and the name of the worksheet
is changing constantly. Within a cell on my current worksheet I have the
file details of where the information I require is to be obtained. I want to
create a formula that takes the file details from the cell above and adds it
to the formula so it knows where to find the information i require

The contents of a cell in my spreadsheet contains a file and worksheet
reference eg
[china garden week 74.xls]Sheet1!$D$15
The contents of this cell is updated by a formula each time the week number
changes. Therefore the number "74" is always changing

I want to enter a formula to return the value in the worksheet cell stated
above without having to amend the formula each time the filename changes.

I cannot use the indirect function as the spreadsheets I wish to link to
will not always be open.
