Putting Multiplication Formula In Cells With Vba 

Putting Multiplication Formula In Cells With Vba  Excel 
View Answers 
Hi everyone, I am sure this is very simple, but I cant figure out how to do it I hope someone can help.
I want to put a simple multiplication formula into a cell....for example:
Code:
.......that is straightforward and works fine, however I need to use variables for the row number of the cells being multiplied so what I really want to do (but of course this syntax won't work) is:
Code:
...where 'start' and 'finish' are variables (integers) reperesenting row numbers......
Please can anyone tell me how I make the statement between the quotes work so that the column letter and variables can be combined into cell references to be multiplied and will work between quotes to become the literal contents of the cell?
thanks

Hi,
I'd like help in creating a macro that deletes an entire row that has emtpy cells in col B, C & D in the same row.
So for example if I have empty cells in b3,c3 & d3 I'd like the row deleted.
I've used the code below for just column B but I need to include column C & D as well. I tried putting Columns("B:D") but it deletes everything.
Code:
I'm sure it's something simple... like me !
Any help much appreciated

Hello,
I am new to using Excel and I am not very computer literate. I am looking for some help with a spreadsheet I am making. Here is the problem:
I have a column of 14 numbers in cells A1 to A14. If all of these values are less than 2%, I would like a "Pass" to display in cell B1. If any of these values are greater than 2% I would like a "Fail" to display in cell B1.
I have got a formula that works for a single cell but I can't figure out how to get it to apply to more than one cell. For example, I have entered =IF(A1<2,"Pass","Fail") in cell B1. Now if the value I enter in A1 is less than 2, it shows a "Pass", and if the value in A1 is greater than 2 it shows a "Fail" in cell B1. How can I get this to apply to all of the cells from A1 to A14?
If somebody could help me out that would be great.
Thanks,
Randy

I am trying to figure out how to write a formula to figure out production cycle time.
We will be building 8 "widgets" a day.
We will work 10 hours a day.
There is a 20 minute break at 9:20 am.
Production shuts down for lunch 30 minutes for lunch at 12:30.
Production starts at 6:00 am.
Here is what I can do.
Production cycle time = (10*60)30/8 or 71.25 minutes
If we start at 6:00 am, the first scheduled cycle completion time = TIME(6,0,0+71.25/1440)
My problem is when I am trying to use a logical "IF' statement to account for the 20 minute break or lunch and still calculate the end of each cycle time through the day I receive a number of error messages.
This is the formula I am trying to make work. I have the cell the formula is in, formatted with a "mm,ss" format.
=(IF(D4+G1/1440>9:20,(D4+G1)/24,(D4+G1+15)/1440))
I have included an attachment to help (a picture is worth a thousand words).
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I have bought a number of books in an attempt to figure this out, and I am still stumped

is it possible to put two formulasinto one cell?
On the attached timesheet there are columns IN, OUT, IN,OUT
The lunch time is worked out by deducting 'C8 from C9' and this works fine when all 'IN, OUT' cells are filled in but for some reason when just the first two cells are filled in it gives a 12 hour answer.
looking at cell 'C11 ' in the attached worksheet, I currently have the formula
=IF(C13=0,","SUM(C9C8)) The reason for this is to make it look tidy by having blank cells until a calculation is needed,, My problem is, If someone just comes in for the morning one day for instance 8am to 12 noon then they won't have lunch, but C11 will show 12:00
Can I put another formula into C11 to tell it not to deduct C8 from C9 until a time is put into C9.
The following is the sort of thing (many variations) I have been trying but because I'm hopeless at formulas I'm not having any success
Thanks
=IF(C13=0,","SUM(C9C8))OR,IF(C9,ISBLANK,"",SUM(C9C8)

I have cells in a column, some colored yellow, some not. I am trying to use
the SUMIF function to sum only the cells in the range that are colored. Can
this be done? Can I enter something in the "criteria" part of the formula
that can do this?
=SUMIF(D3:D13,"criteria",D3:D13)
I also tried to use the CELL function's color feature, but I couldn't get it
to work right. I don't know how to get Excel to recognize if a cell is
colored in a formula.
=CELL("color",cell)
It might just be that I don't know what this means in Help:
"color" > 1 if the cell is formatted in color for negative values;
otherwise returns 0 (zero).

I often use if statements to return empty cells, for example:
=IF(a1=0,"ERROR","")
The trailing "" returns an empty cell. The problem is, it is not TRULY empty. If I fill that formula down, I cannot, for example, jump from one "ERROR" cell to the next by hitting Ctrl arrowdown because it seems to think that these empty cells have contents.
Is there a way to designate, in such a formula as above, to return a TRULY empty cell?
Thanks

Hello,
I'm trying to set up a basic formula to clear out unwanted cells. Basically, if the cell is not equal a number, I'd like it to be cleared of any information. I would rather not use a space, because I have text that is overlapping between cells and would like it to be legible.
Here's the basic formula:
=if(A1>0, A1, ???)
Any help would be great. Thanks!

Hi, hope someone can assist, i want to add some arrow syimbols in to a formula, so that when the formula works out it shows an up arrow for higher or a down arrow for lower, i am using this formula at the moment because i dont know any better but it works, putting in the word up or down:
I have entered the following formula in to a cell: =IF(S3<R3,"DOWN","UP") it works however i want to replace the word Down and up with the relevant arrows symbol. How do i do this?

I'm trying to come up with a solution to calculate the man hours and days worked over multiple sheets.
I have a file that has 8 sheets. the first seven sheets are the days of the week and the 8th sheet is where I want to calculate the hours.
The days of the week consists of "Name" "Date" Hours"
The 8th sheet consists of "Name", "Days of the week in their own column (7 columns in total)", "Total Hours" and "Total Days Worked"
Now... each day is always a different group and what I'm hoping for is to create a formula that can grab each name with their hours and throw them into the 8th sheet. So when the end of the week is done I have all the Employees weekly hours and days worked all finished.
I hope this makes sense. This file is to track about 100 employees that are on a rotational work schedule.
I have attached a sample file.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi folks,
Hoping someone can help me quickly as I'm pulling my hair out and have a deadline getting too close.
Been trailing the net and this board but can't work out how to do a simple variance.
How do I work out the difference between two numbers  including negatives.
If the numbers are all positive, it's fine as it's simply a case of A  B = C which is your difference. However, that doesn't work if B is negative.
I need a formula that would give the following:
First Number / Second Number / Difference
1 / 5 / 4
1 / 5 / 6
1 / 5 / 6
1 / 5 / 4
5 / 1 / 4
Hopefully there's a simple function I've been missing.
Thanks in advance, R

Hi, all  I have been banging my head on the desk over this one...it's gotta be so simple, right? Have searched online, and on Mr. Excel, but still can't get this right.
I need a formula in cell L3 that says "IF cell K3 is greater than 25 but less than 30, K3, otherwise, blank." Cell K3 currently contains the value 30. My formula in L3 currently is =IF(K3>25,K3,IF(K3

In Excel there is a difference between cells that are blank (= "") and that are empty. You can make blank cells empty by selecting them and pressing the delete key, but I need a fast way to do this on all blank cells in a large worksheet. The only way I have found is with a VBA macro that loops through every cell, tests for '.Value = "" ' and then uses the '.Clear()' function, but doing this on 30 columns x 10000 rows is far too slow. Any solutions?
(The reason I need to do this is for importing into Access, the database treats empty cells as NULL which is what I want. Blank (but not empty) cells screw the import process up.)

I am trying to write a formula that uses both an if statement and a vlookup statement.
It's for a house cleaning price list, with two sets of prices. I want the formula to say if the value in E7 is R, i want to lookup the value for the house in the second column. If the value in the cell is anything else, i want to lookup the value for the house in the third column.
So in sense, my formula should look like =IF (E7=1,"=VLOOKUP(A10,'Clean Prices'!$A$2:$C$58,2,FALSE)","=VLOOKUP(A10,'Clean Prices'!$A$2:$C$58,3,FALSE)")
But it doesn't work. Is it possible to nest a vlookup in an if statement?

Hello
I'm quite experienced Excel user. I've never come across this problem but tinkering in every conceivable way within Excel settings and the solution has eluded me.
I have added a worksheet created elsewhere (it is a form I need printing, with the data coming from 2 sheets I have created from scratch) which has pre formatted cells for Date and Client Name etc.
When I try to reference the cell in this added sheet from my 2 sheets, instead of the result, it always displays the formula, not the result.
I have tried doing it from one of my sheets to reference to this new, and that displays the result and not formula. I can't imagine why it's doing this and I've never seen it happen before.
Formatting cells, giving cells names rather than the usually adequate of reference to the Cell Number doesn't change things. I wonder if I've picked up some legacy protection from the original form but can't see anywhere in the tools etc that's obvious.
There's about 50+ cells that need referencing and I got to get this done for work.
Please help me. This is my first need to post on a Excel Forum as I've always found help or answers from other peeps or internet but this one is making me scratch my head big time.

How do I get the colors to change automatically when I use a drop down list.
Per say here is what I am trying to do
If a certain "word" is used from the drop down list I want the background of
that cell to change its color to "green." And if later I change the "word" to
another from the drop down list, it will change it's color to a specified
color.
The drop down list that I use was created from cells that have the colors
already in the "word", but I do not know how to make the list show the colors
so it puts the word & color automatically in the drop down list to the cell
with the drop down (if that makes any sense).
If there is a way, please spell it out simple enough for me to understand,
as I don't know fully the capabilities of formulas or vba.

I run a small business. I want to start keeping track of inventory using a barcode system.
I know Excel "ok", but I don't know programming.'
I'd like to be able to do something very simple (for now)...
For example...if I had PRODUCT / CODE / INV VALUE
A  CODE A  5
B  CODE B  11
C  CODE C  14
I would want to be able to click a button (or scan a code for) : ADD +1 or REMOVE 1
...then scan the barcode on the product (A) and have it add or remove one, respectively. So, if the row for A is:
A  CODE A  5
I choose "ADD" (with a button or scan code), then scan the barcode, and the spreadsheet automatically finds the code in the sheet, and changes the corresponding inventory value:
A  CODE A  6
Does that make sense? How might I go about doing that?

I saw two threads in this forum that asked this question, with no good answer. I am posting this solution for anybody still struggling with this.
The question:
How can you prevent a cell's contents from overflowing into the next cell?
Of course, you can make the column wider or turn on text wrapping, but you might not want to. Each of those solutions can mess up the layout of your sheet. You may just want to truncate the value.
Some people have suggested putting a space in the next cell. This is unnecessary, a pain in the but, and will mess up any ISBLANK type formulas, among other things.
The solution:
Select the cells in question and turn on text wrapping (Format>Cells>Alignment>Wrap Text).
Now select the row(s) in question and manually set the row height, by right clicking the row number and selecting "Row Height". Check the height of an adjacent row for a good value.
Your cells will now not spill over either horizontally or vertically. They will simply truncate anything that doesn't fit.
Be careful now, because parts of your data may be hidden. This can cause its own set of problems if one or two digits are neatly hidden away. Think ahead if other people might be using this sheet, and not be expecting to have some data hidden.

I am trying to create a formula which will look at the data in columns A  I (50 rows) and copy this data to columns K  S but ignoring any blank cells. Thereby consolidating the data in the upper rows with no spaces.
I am sure there is a relativley simple answer but it is driving me mad!
Hope you "Guru's" can help
Thanks

Hi there,
I'm very new to Excel, and I'm having trouble figuring a few things out. Hopefully this will be very easy for you guys!
In Sheet 1, I have a column of cells that I would like to also appear in Sheet 2. If I add a new row to the column in Sheet 1, I would also like it to be updated automatically in Sheet 2. Currently, I can get it to show the contents of individual cells from Sheet 1 in Sheet 2 by using this formula in the formula bar for each cell in Sheet 2:
=Sheet1!A3 (or whichever cell it is)
That's fine, but I'd like to just have a formula that will reproduce the entire column (ie. without a fixed range, as new rows are going to be added to the column).
If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd be very very grateful. Thanks.

have tried to format all of the cells as "Text" to show as entered, but it
doesnt work. PLEASE HELP
Today I ran into an odd problem. I typed in values for column A rows 1 through 10 then values for column B rows 1 through 10. then in column C, I made the formula C1=A1/B1. The math was correct it showed 542 in the C1 cell. So I dragged that formula down and it showed 542 in all column C cells which is not correct. And when I went to check to see if the formula was correctly dragged it was. For instance, the formula in C2 is =A2/B2 however the value of that cell showed 542 which was not the correct math/value.
But it gets even more weird. When I click on the Column C cells and then it shows the formula up top in the formula bar and if I put my cursor anywhere in the formula bar and hit Return the formula does not change however the correct value then appears in the Column C cell. It is like the act of putting the cursor in the formula activates it to work properly but until it is activated that C cell shows the value of the cell which it was dragged down from.
This is quite bizarre. Has anyone ever seen this before? I have no idea what is going on. I ran a scan for viruses and none were found. I tried it on several new/different spreadsheets but it keeps happening.
Thanks for any tips on this.

Thought I'd append my experience of the above problem  you can find all sorts of references to it everywhere.
My problem was that a userform defined with Excel at work (containing DT pickers) gave the message in the title when opening it at home. I had a lightbulb moment and wondered whether there was a difference in the version numbers for MSCOMCT2.OCX at work and at home. Turned out the work version was newer. I then copied the MSCOMCT2.* files from work, made a backup of them at home and copied those from work to my Cdrive (Windows XP  c:\windows\system32\ ).
No luck. I then rebooted the machine  still no luck.
Then, finally I unregistered the old DLL via
Code:
(not sure if this was necessary, but I didn't think it could hurt). Reregistered the DLL via
Code:
and what do you know  it worked.
Summa summarum  it could be an idea to check whether the two machines have different version numbers for the MSCOMCT2.OCX files.

I get the error message "reference is not valid" each time I open my spreadsheet. I get this message three times, and once I am done clicking ok on all three of them, my spreadsheet works just fine. The problem is, I have to send it to a bunch people.
I have a sheet with raw data a sheet with pivot tables a sheet with a dashboard and a simple macro
I don't have any #REF cells either.
Someone has any idea of what could be the problem?
thanks

I'm using some basic code below in an on Workbook Open event to format cells with a value less then 2 and less than 1 with a particular color.
The code works, but it really slows my worksheet down when opening. Is there better way to write this? Thanks!

Code:
Dim myRange As Range Dim cell As Range Set myRange = Range("V6:V50000") For Each cell In myRange If cell.Value < 2 Then cell.Font.ColorIndex = 5 If cell.Value < 1 Then cell.Font.ColorIndex = 3 Next
