Visual Basic to reference value in Excel cell

I have a small program, and in a particular cell, I ask a
user to enter the number of copies they want printed when
they push the button linked to the printpages macro I
made. In the macro I want to change the "Copies:=1" so
that rather than a 1, it will reference the value of the
cell they entered the number of copies desired. I tried

ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=Cells
([g], [22]), Collate:=True Range("E4").Select

But that didnt work. I dont know much about VB or how to
use it in conjunction with Excel, but anyone who can help
me fix this is greatly appreciated!

I used to use lotus years ago and I know that it was /range value to change a
formula to a value. Can you change a formula to a value in excel?

I'm trying to do a sumif with the "criteria" refering to an adjacent cell
rather than having the criteria hard keyed into the formula. For example, if
I have a list of purchases by date and I want to sum up those that occured
prior to 12/31/04, and 12/31/04 is the value in another cell. Can i have the
sumif refer to that cell for the "criteria"?

When there is an exisitng value in a cell and there is a value to be
subtracted or added to the exisitng value, a separate calculator needs to be
used. Can Excel perform this function and eliminate the need for the separate
calculator?

I have matrix (221 by 221) that I need to convert into a
list with very particular spacing and formating for use in
another program.

I'm using a looping system to work between the different
cells in the sheet which will initially just contain the
formatted data. Anyway to use visual basic to insert
formulas in these cells where the referencing system is
tied to the number of the iteration in the looping
procedure? ie, inserting the formula = sheet1(B3) in the
new sheet, where the B3 part is generated automatically in
the looping process?

Hi.
I am trying to contain a number value in excel after changing the value
to text.
First, I calculate a cell, then change that cell from a formula to a
value. Then, I want to change the value to a number with 2 digits
after the decimal. My dilemma occurs when the number value shows as 3
digits after the decimal. When I try to reformat for 2 digits, the
number value is displayed with 3 digits. Does that make sense? Please
help!

Hello forum, ;]
First I must notice that I dont know very good english and may be hard to understand what is my problem. I'll post pictures to make the things more easy to understand.

Second, im totally noob in excel so explain like an idiot. ;]

So I have a spreadsheet in english. I just want to translate it to bulgarian(for users in my country). I have many cell with formulas and when I try to change a cell everything broke.

1. here is ok
2. is ok too
3. there is the problem!

In general i just wnat to change value in the cell, not the formula.

I have a macro that launches a userform. The user selects a value from the form and the value is placed in Sheet3 cell a1. In a later part of the macro, that value is needed for part of an input to another cell. My code is not getting or reading the value in Sheet3 cell a1 that I need.

Please advise

Hi all

I am trying to write some VBA to join the values in 2 cells into another cell for a list, however my knowledge at this level is a little lacking.

For each row in a list I would like to join the value of the cell of Column A and the value in the cell of Column B and write the output to Column C for that row, as shown in the attached example. Column C in the example shows the expected output.

Any help appreciated.

What I would like to do is create a formula in one cell that will check to see if there is a certain value in another cell in the same row, and if there is place a 1 in another cell in that row. I tried creating this formula, but it doesn’t work:

=IF($N2="O",AS2="1",AS2=AS2)

This formula simply produces TRUE in the cell that it is entered in. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Not sure if I'm wording this correct but basically what I'm trying to accomplish is:

Source:

COL1 
   COL2

ABC        1
          32
          23
          14
DEF        9
          55
          36
          91
I'm trying to find a formula that would allow me to LOOKUP value in COLUMN1 (COL1 above) and then return the values in COLUMN2 (COL2 above). So in the above example Lookup ABC, returns 1, 32, 23, 14 (but in the same layout as above, vertically).

Sure I'm missing something simple here. Thanks in advance.

I would like to create code that will check to see if there is a certain value in a particular cell, and if there is place a "1" in another cell in that row. I think I know how to do the If statement, but I don't know how to write a value in another cell in VBA. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

I have a list of values which are positive or negative depending on a D or C
value in the cell next to them. I need to turn the D values to negatives in
order to sum the data

I have first set of data which is my rules and it contains values in 4 columns and approximately 100 rows. Some cells are blank.

I have second set of data in one column and approximately 50 rows. Now for this second set of data, I would like to compare value in each cell to all the values in first data to return a true or false based on if there is a match or not.

Now I tried the following formula:
=SUMPRODUCT(--('[file1.xls]Sheet1'!$C$2:$F$55=LEFT(B6,8)))

This works just fine and returns 0 or 1 until there multiple matches and I get numbers like 5 or 7. I would like to get a 0 or 1 back as soon as there is one or more match. I prefer not to change my first data set to put all my unique values in one column because that data set changes frequently and I get a download plus if anyone needs to verify that those "rules" are correct then it can not be done in one column of data.

Any thoughts?

Thank you in advance,
Jay

To group by the color or sort by the names of the colors? I don't know that
the Font.ColorIndex implies a specific color, only an index into a palette.
The ColorIndex would be sufficient for sorting, it seems to me, although you
could assign names to the indicies.

This will put the ColorIndex of a target cell into a cell offset two to the
right of the target cell for each cell in the selection.

Sub Main()
Dim cell As Range
For Each cell In Selection
cell.Offset(0, 2).Value = cell.Font.ColorIndex
Next cell
End Sub

I have an Excel worksheet with Buttons and Macros and Visual Basic code which
was created in Excel 2003 and works fine (everything functions). However,
when I moved the file to Excel 2007, only the Visual Basic Function no longer
works (the macros and buttons operate fine).

When I use "Evaluate Formula" for the Visual Basic Function, it provides the
correct answer. However, when I press Calculate (F9) or when I press Enter
with the cursor at the end of the function's formula on the "Fx" line, I get
"#VALUE!" and don't understand why. Any ideas? Thanks.

The IF() function is generally used to test the value in a cell. Is
there any way to get the IF() function (or some other function) to
test the formula in a cell?

For example, the formula in Cell E1 might be:

IF((The formula in Range("A1")="=+B1+C1"),"OK","Error")

Everything I've tried produces "Error" when the condition is in fact
true, i.e., the formula in Cell A1 is correct.

The purpose of this is to produce cells that are flags that alert when
a formula has been modified by some spreadsheet editing process and I
don't want the formula to change. Even "absolute" references seem to
change under some edits such as the insertion of a row.

And, oh by the way, I'm actually running the workbook with R1C1
Reference Style (because the formulae I'm interested in are literally,
character for character, identical in R1C1 reference style, and it's
easier to determine that they haven't changed by "visual" inspection.

Yes, I could just re-propagate the formulae any time there's a
question, but that's a "chore."

How to make excel to treat values in cell as a number?

I am trying to check if any worksheet has hidden values in a cell. I am
very new to VBA programming. I came across these---
Excel.XlCellType.xlCellTypeBlanks and
Excel.XlCellType.xlCellTypeVisible

But I am not sure if this is what would serve my purpose.

Thanks

Have a worksheet with specific data (calls, $, employee) in the columns and
the weekly data (Week 1 Week 2 Week 3) for the specific data in the rows.
Each week I add new data to the next row and need to be able to sum or total
the data at the bottom (Year to Date information). Currently, I highlight the
area containing the year to date formulas and do a find/replace to advance
the row to the next one down with the new data for the current week.

Problem: Can I put a value in cell and have the sum or average formula
reference a cell the contains the row number that I would like to end on? I
have tried to use name function for the row, and the r1c1 format but can not
use a cell reference for the # in the r1c1 format. here is an example:
=sum(a1:a+currentweek) Current week is a named cell for the row with the
current weeks data.

I also tried in the r1c1 format =sum(R1C1:R'currentweek'C1) In this
example current week would a cell holding the value 10 next week it would
hold the value 11 and so on.

I have several formula that very with the week. So if there is any easy way
to reference a cell containing the a vaule to be place in the cell reference
for a row would be a big help. Otherwise, find repace of the hightlighted
area is the quickest way I know to do this.

Thanks,

David
