Hello All,

Happy New Year! I have an excel issue where the formulas are not updating

unless I click on the cell and then place the cursor on the cell address

field (at the top of the excel sheet). Once I do that and click away, the

cell displays the updated total. Is there an option/setting that is causing

this? The spreadsheet was working fine before. Thanks.

yesterday. The cells are not automatically calculating the information. I

checked the formulas and they are all pulling from the correct cells. I can

click on the formula bar and then it will calculate, but just yesterday

morning, they all calculated automatically.

This is only in Excel. The other applications are running fine. If you

have a solution to this problem, please let me know.

Thank you.

I am running a macro that toggles auto calc on and off. Appartenly, I have

either confused or corrupted excel.

In a nut shell after the macro has run.. my formulas to not work.. very

simple formulas like = A8, do not work. I can change the value in cell A8

and my root formula does not change. Unless I physically go into the cell

that the formula is and manuall hit enter from the fromula window.

The only global fix I have found is to save the filename as a differnt file.

This seems to prompt excel to register the formulas and they update.

However, this only works for that one instance. What I mean is If I simply

re-open the file, without doing anything else.. the formulas are not active.

I..e save and 1 time the formulas update.. if I open and type in a new result

in cell A8.. the formula does not change?

Please help? This is part of a huge project I have been working on at work

and my deliverable is this week!!!!!

back and forth. I have discovered that sometimes when I change a cell on a

worksheet, it does not automatically update the cells on the linked

worksheets. The only way to do it is to go to each dependent cell

individually to update, this is very time consuming. I have double checked

that the automatical update is checked in the options. Has anyone

experienced this and does anyone have a solution? Thanks.

The below is my problem. I have a excel wokbook that contains 2 reports from an outside source and on top of the reports i have some excel calculations.One of report has drill down capability. Everytime i open my excel workbook and refresh it the excel forumals also get refreshed along with my 2 reports and i get my results. But when ever i drill down something on the report the excel formulas are not getting refreshed automatically. I end up refreshing the whole workbook to get the correct results which is a very time consuming process considering the amount of data i am trying to pull. And drilldown is something the users do very often and they don't like refreshing the whole workbook.

Is there any way to update the excel functions automatically whenever i drilldown?

Please help.

the workbooks, that read off of the first workbook. I also have several

simple formulas, calculating for example 10% of an an amount. However as I

am typing in the information necessary for the formulas to work, the formulas

are not updating. One example: I have letters throughout my spreadsheet

(actual letters that go out to people). I type in information in the first

workbook and they are supposed to carry over to the letters so all I have to

worry about is the body of the letter. Yet it is not carrying over. If any

one can help me figure out what is going on that would be awesome. I can go

in click in the formulas and the formula will work, but as soon as I go in a

start changin the actual information, the formulas will not update either.

Thanks

After reading various ideas etc on here i have setup several connections from a spreadsheet to different .csv files always stored in the same place on the I:/ drive - a usb stick.

first time i set up the spreadsheet the external links automatically updated upon pressing the refresh button.

since then however when i choose refresh Excel wants me to confirm the file for some reason (showing the explorer etc and i have to click the file). the trouble is as i have several files i dont know which one Excel is asking me for so i have a danger of pointing the wrong data to each link.

any ideas why these text files are not automatically updating as the files dont change name or move but do get updated?

the row is added as the first or last row of the SUM range?

For years we have been frustrated that rows added to the extremes of a range

included in a SUM formula are not automatically included in the range used

in the formula. This is also true of many other functions.

It seems logical to us, that if we select any row within a range, and insert

a new row, the new row should be included in any formula addressing the

original range. On the other hand, if we select a row contingent to, but

outside a range, and add a new row, it is logical that the new row not be

included in the formula addressing the original range. To us this seems a

logical approach and gives the user a predictable way to quickly add rows

(or columns) and know if any forumula referencing the range will, or will

not, be automatically included in the range.

Nevertheless, the user currently has a problem if he/she adds a new row

above the first row or beneath the last row of a range formula range. Such

new rows are not automatically included in the original range reference used

by a formula. This is especially problematic if the user originally defines

a range of one row since a later addition to the range will never be

automatically included in the SUM formula addressing the original range.

Please note that the same problem we have with rows also applies to columns.

As a work-around we have used the OFFSET formula to address a larger range

than the actual SUM range. This works very well, but generates huge

overhead in developing the original formulas or worksheet. We have also

tried adding a phantom row of minimal height (or hidden), between the last

row of a range and the sum formula in a 'Totals' row. This allows the user

to add new rows at the end of the SUM range. But this two generates

significant overhead and complicates the worksheet.

Does anybody know of a simpler approach, or of any configuration change,

that would force new rows to be included in the original range? Thank you

for any suggestions.

Hi all,

I just don't understand this.

I have a Excel sheet which was created in Excel Xp 2003. And it is

full of calculations.

When I open it in Excel 2007,

And press SHIFT+F9, it always gives "NO-CELL" error.

Basically it doesn't run at all.

But when I go to each cell, and following the logical dependency, and

refresh/recalculate each cell one by one,

then the results are correct...

But there are so many cells and manually going through them are

infeasbile.

What can I do now?

Can anybody help me?

Thanks!

I got a Excel workbook from a friend. I observed that in a worksheet the excel formulas are not working i.e. if i type a formula in a cell and click enter the cell displays the formula but not data for the formula.

E.g.: In attached screen shot, the columan P should display Date instead =A1 is displayed.

Please let me know how to enable the formulas.

Thanks & Regards,

Abhi Ram

Any help, thx

=HLOOKUP(D$2,'Network_Address[Last_Name.xls]Sheet1'!$E$3:$BD$23,21,FALSE)

I would need column J to change colors or just show the number automatically.

I wonder has anyone had the same problem as I do now?!

I have a file with lot's of formulas where I have recently added macros. For some reason the formulas in that sheet (f.e. offset, index&match etc) are not working automatically anymore. Instead, if I go to the cell contained formula and press F2 and exit the cell, only then the cell with the formula will be updated. Is it because of macros???

If someone knows the solution to this, I be very glad to have opinions on this! Thank you in advance!

have a formula: =(K10-F10)*E10. Now when I insert new values for K10, F10

or E10, the result does not update until I click on the results cell and make

to edit it, and press return. Can anyone explain why I have lost the

automatic updating of formulae? TIA.

that some linked cells do not automatically update when I change the value or

formula in the original cell. I have to click on the linked cell and hit

enter before the cell will update with the changed value. There seems to be

no pattern for which linked cells update and which do not (for example, the

original cell may have a percentage, a constant value, or a formula). Some

of my workbooks have fifty or more worksheets, so this is becoming a real

problem. Help!

For example, the formula in the subtotal column is this:

=SUBTOTAL(9,G7:G26)

When I insert a row, if the sheet is unprotected, the formula will update to show:

=SUBTOTAL(9,G7:G27)

When I insert a row, if the sheet is protected, the formula does not update.

If I unprotect the sheet, the formulas are likely to be tampered with, and if I only unlock that one cell, that one may be altered as well. Can I do anything that would allow the sheet to remain protected, but update the formula when new data is entered?

Also, any other suggestions for the layout or design of this sheet would be great. I'm still learning a lot about excel. Thanks for any help.

--One more thing, I did add validation to the cell as suggested in another thread, and left the cell unlocked, but discovered that if I hit the "Delete" key when the cell is selected, it clears the formula.

I did a search for this question, and came up with a post, however the response did not make sense to me, so I am posting my question new (rather than replying to the other, since it was from 1+ years ago).

I know next to nothing about VBA (yet). I found the code I am using from this website (and altered it a bit), and it's purpose is to sum the cells that have a particular font color format. It is:

VB:When cells within the range are given a particular color, the function does not automatically update; it requires me to double click on the cell w/ the function. The only time it does auto update is when I subtract a cell with a particular color.Range) '''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' 'Written by Ozgrid Business Applications 'www.ozgrid.com 'Sums cells based on a specified fill color. ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' Dim rCell As Range Dim iCol As Integer Dim vResult iCol = rColor.Interior.ColorIndex For Each rCell In rSumRange If rCell.Font.ColorIndex = iCol Then vResult = WorksheetFunction.Sum(rCell) + vResult End If Next rCell SumColor = vResult End FunctionIf you like these VB formatting tags please consider sponsoring the author in support of injured Royal Marines

How can I automate this function, just like all the others that are built into Excel act?

Here is the forum post from last year with the answer I do not quiet understand.

http://www.ozgrid.com/forum/showthre...pdate+function

...how do I incorporate 'Application.Volatile' in the above code?

Thank you for your time & help...

It has worked very well for the past few years, but in the last revision I'm

getting calls from sales reps saying that some formulas are not calculating.

It's not as if an error is displayed - the formula simply does not calculate.

Also, it is the same group of formulas each time.

However, when I test the file out on my computer, all formulas calculate. I

cannot recreate the problem on my computer.

Is there a setting in Excel that limits the number of possible calculations?

Any insight that can be provided on why this is happening would be greatly

appreciated. I am truly at my wits end.

each have cells that contain the formula "=B25+PrevSheet(F25)" to accumulate

the sum of corresponding cells of earlier month worksheets using a function

"PrevSheet(x)" that I wrote to pick up the specified cell value from the

previous month worksheet. Each worksheet has a fairly large number of cells

that use this formula.

When I make changes in earlier month sheets the following month sheets do

not automatically update their cumulative values. Clicking Recalculate does

not perform and update either. The only way I seem to be able to update

these cum cells is to select each one, click up in the formula bar and then

press enter. This is a very tedious process.

How can I get the cells to update automatically?

Thank you for your help, John

Insert columns M thur S -- formula now in column T Ex. should read

=Sum(G1:S1)

Column T Formula will not automatically update to include columns M thru S

Version Excel 2003

I am using VLOOKUP to pull data from one sheet to another.

When I insert a column in the sheet referenced in the VLOOKUP formula the formula is not auto updating. Is there a preference setting that I have erroneously changed?

i.e. =VLOOKUP(A3,'Sheet1'!$T:$X,3,FALSE) and the 3 should change to a 4 if I insert a column in column 1 through 3 in Sheet 1.

However, some of the formulas are derived using a link to a different

spreadsheet (not created on our network). When we open the sheet and choose

to not update the links, the spreadhseet opens, and when we view the formulas

they appear. However, the file path for some of the formulas also appears

using my network information (e.g. c:documents and settingsname, etc....).

Is there a way to retain the original path information? Thank you.
