Hi, I need a way to select a discontinuous range in VBA with these circumstances:
The data I'm working with is grouped into 5 by 5 regions, each region with a header above it, stacked one above the other with an empty line between each
There are also several "columns" of these tables, although I could put them on separate sheets if that simplifies the code
What I want to do is find the maximum value within a given location in each table. By this, I mean that I will be comparing the value in 1st row in the 1st column of the 1st table with the value in the 1st row in the 1st column of the 2nd table.
I can't seem to upload files here at work, but the tables look something like...
Table1
1 2 3 4 5
6 7 8 9 0
1 2 3 4 5
1 2 3 4 5
1 2 3 4 5
Table2
6 7 0 9 0
1 2 3 4 5
6 7 0 9 0
6 7 0 9 0
6 7 0 9 0
With the end product being
Table2 Table2 Table1 Table2 Table2
Table1 Table1 Table1 Table1 Table1
Table2 Table2 Table1 Table2 Table2
Table2 Table2 Table1 Table2 Table2
Table2 Table2 Table1 Table2 Table2
Thanks in advance, sorry for the mess
SELECT Table1.Field4, [Table2].Field1, [Table2].Field2, [Table2].Field3
FROM Table1 INNER JOIN [Table2] ON Table1.Field4 = [Table2].Field4;
Thanks for any help. I'd like to be able to edit the display and have any
changes (or deletions) reflected in Table2.
I've got a worksheet with several tables, each of which I've assigned a defined name. At the top of my worksheet I have several cells containing lookup functions, and these are repeated for each defined table on the sheet.
Right now I'm creating all my lookup functions for a single table, copying the cells containing these functions, and editing the references to the defined names in the copies by hand, giving me a final product something like this:
Code:
A B C D
1
2 10 10 10 10
3 =VLOOKUP(A$2,Table1,2) =VLOOKUP(B$2,Table2,2) =VLOOKUP(C$2,Table3,2) =VLOOKUP(D$2,Table4,2)
4 =VLOOKUP(A$2,Table1,3) =VLOOKUP(B$2,Table2,3) =VLOOKUP(C$2,Table3,3) =VLOOKUP(D$2,Table4,3)
5 =VLOOKUP(A$2,Table1,4) =VLOOKUP(B$2,Table2,4) =VLOOKUP(C$2,Table3,4) =VLOOKUP(D$2,Table4,4)
6 =VLOOKUP(A$2,Table1,5) =VLOOKUP(B$2,Table2,5) =VLOOKUP(C$2,Table3,5) =VLOOKUP(D$2,Table4,5)
To get this result, I'd normally do all the formulas in Column A first, then copy these formulas to Columns BD, but doing that gives me the result below:
Code:
A B C D
A B C D
1
2 10 10 10 10
3 =VLOOKUP(A$2,Table1,2) =VLOOKUP(B$2,Table1,2) =VLOOKUP(C$2,Table1,2) =VLOOKUP(D$2,Table1,2)
4 =VLOOKUP(A$2,Table1,3) =VLOOKUP(B$2,Table1,3) =VLOOKUP(C$2,Table1,3) =VLOOKUP(D$2,Table1,3)
5 =VLOOKUP(A$2,Table1,4) =VLOOKUP(B$2,Table1,4) =VLOOKUP(C$2,Table1,4) =VLOOKUP(D$2,Table1,4)
6 =VLOOKUP(A$2,Table1,5) =VLOOKUP(B$2,Table1,5) =VLOOKUP(C$2,Table1,5) =VLOOKUP(D$2,Table1,5)
As you can see, I still have to go in to Columns BD and manually correct the table reference names. So, my question is this: is it possible to enter the text values Table1, Table2, etc. in Row 1, and somehow have all my vlookup functions extract the name of the table to use from these cells? I know I can't just do something like having the formula in A3 =VLOOKUP(A$2,A$1,2) since that will make the formula think that the range A1 itself is where I want to do the lookup. Any ideas?
I've got four tables with negative and positive values and want to determine the largest magnitude of a subset of four values within those four tables. In other words if the largest magnitude is negative I want the negative value of the four subsets or viseversa.
I've tried the following but got an error stating it was too long:
= IF(ABS(VLOOKUP(table1)) = MAX(ABS(VLOOKUP(table1)), ABS(VLOOKUP(table2)), ABS(VLOOKUP(table3)), ABS(VLOOKUP(table4))), VLOOKUP(table1), IF(ABS(VLOOKUP(table2)) = MAX(ABS(VLOOKUP(table1)), ABS(VLOOKUP(table2)), ABS(VLOOKUP(table3)), ABS(VLOOKUP(table4))), VLOOKUP(table2), IF(ABS(VLOOKUP(table3)) = MAX(ABS(VLOOKUP(table1)), ABS(VLOOKUP(table2)), ABS(VLOOKUP(table3)), ABS(VLOOKUP(table4))), VLOOKUP(table3), VLOOKUP(table4))))
The repeating line needs attention in my mind:
MAX(ABS(VLOOKUP(table1)), ABS(VLOOKUP(table2)), ABS(VLOOKUP(table3)), ABS(VLOOKUP(table4)))
Thanks

Hi
I have a relatively simple problem but not sure how to solve it.
I have two spreadsheets named Table1 and Table2.
I also have a list of loan numbers in Column A of Sheet 3.
I need a formula that will lookup each loan number in Table1, but if it is not there, then lookup Table2, and return the value found in Column B of either Table1 or Table2. I hope that is clear.
Any help would be apprecaited.

Hi,
I am looking for some suggestions on how can I possibly withdraw main data from my Invoice template (like: Invoice number, Name of the customer, total amount) in to another spreadsheet in order for me to create some sort of data base of every invoice that I send to my customers. I also wonder if some how I can auto increase my invoice number? For example if you open new invoice with number 001 so that the second one that you open will be automatically changed on 002 and so on, but with question If you reopen an existing invoice the number should not increase then.
I know that VBA can help but since I do not know anything about VBA I am looking for some help here.
Thanks in advance
I have an invoice sheet and when one job is entered into it I would like a new invoice sheet with the same format to appear while the previous invoice is filed away possibly in another workbook. The jnvoices are all numbered so I'm also attempting to have the invoice number grow by 1 everytime a new automatic invoice is created. Any ideas attached is the invoice for further analysis.
"In Excel 2007, I have a spreadsheet containing invoice line items. Each invoice number is listed multiple times in column A, once for each line item associated. Is there a formula that will number each line of each invoice?
Example:
If A2 through A5 = 12345 then I would like B2 = 1, B3 = 2, B4 = 3, B5 = 4. Then start again at 1 for the next invoice number. Each invoice number has a different number of rows so I am hoping for a formula to recognize each number and sequentially number each occurrence within that row.
All help greatly appreciated
i am complete beginner.
i am currently designing an invoice in excel.
i want a macro that will automatically save an invoice worksheet from its invoice number which will clear the sheet for a new invoice with a new invoice number. the worksheet should then be saved in my documents.
how do you create a macro that automatically generate a new invoice number from the previous number. for e.g. 101 going on to 102
i have searched through the forum and found solution but it doesn't work for me.
thx
I am using an Excel based invoice and I want to add a serial number that will
automatically update each time I open a new invoice. Is there an easy way?
Thanks
Can any body help
I have created a automatic invoice generator which will print the invoice and then clear the invoice and generate the next invoice number
The worksheet consists of 3 spreadsheets Invoice Lookup tables which store the products and clients Invoice list with get a grandtotal of invoice plus key information ie name etc
The Invoice no is situated in cells D1 to E1 but what i would like the macro to do is to copy the invoice only and save it in a directory C:\oldinvoices with a file name of the invoice no ie cells D1  E1 this will enable me to be able to recreate an old invoice if needs be
I cannot see how this can be done and would appreciate any advise that yon can give me
I have created a few identical sheets, namely Invoice, Invoice (2), Invoice (3) and so on. Cell F5 of each invoice will be the invoice number (running number). After sheet Invoice (3), i have created another sheet namely Invoice Summary (on the right to Invoice (3)), which will have one of the column, says column C to capture invoice number from sheet Invoice, Invoice (2) and Invoice (3) by draging down column C2 to C4 of Invoice Summary sheet:
C2 to reflect invoice number of sheet Invoice
C3 to reflect invoice number of sheet Invoice (2)
C4 to reflect invoice number of sheet Invoice (3)
however, relative sheet reference could not be perform by draging down the fill handle.
How do i solve this?
Thanks in advance!
Hi.
I am processing invoices and i need to know if the same invoice number has been used in the spread sheet. For example. Invoice number in each cell down a colum. as below
Invoice Number
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
If the same invoice number is used an alert or dialog box box saying that that number has already been used appears. for example
Invoice Number
1
2
3
4
5
6
4 (when i try to enter or move on from this cell I am made aware the number has already been used.)
Thanks for any help you may be able to provide.

Rusty
Sorry, I didn't quite know how to word the title .
I have an Excel Invoice Template, saved as a template.
I have code that generates a new invoice number each time the template is opened in VBA Editor. The auto numbering system works great! However.... (here comes the sad part)
After I enter all the data I need on the invoice, I want to save a copy of the invoice in a different file folder, which I can no problem. The problem is, if I reopen the saved invoice, we will call it Invoice #100, excel asks me if I want to update, if I say either yes or no, the invoice number will change to Invoice #101. I'm sure you can see how this can cause a major problem if we need to compare information later on, finding the correct invoice would be almost impossible as it would not match the customers invoice number.
What I need to know is:
Is there code I can add to the existing code, to stop the increment on a saved invoice, but not on the original template?
I have gotten so much information from this site Im so glad it is here and hopefully I can help someone out in the future

I have a spreadsheet I am using to simply record invoice numbers and the times that I completed those numbers. Instead of manually writing the time I recorded the invoice number, is there a way that when I enter the invoice number, the time I entered it will populate in the cell next to the invoice number automatically?
Invoice Number

hello!
i am trying to transfer data from one table to another using vlookup function.
If the check box is ticked, this means that this invoice has been paid and returns a TRUE; otherwise, it remains blank or simply indicates a FALSE.
This is the table I am trying to populate to summarize all outstanding items. Currently I am using a vlookup function to do this. The problem is if an invoice for the quarter has been paid in Table1, i have to manually delete the formula in Table2 so as not to show it as outstanding.
=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A4,Sheet1!A4:Q6,2,0)),0,(VLOOKUP(A4,Sheet1!A4:Q6,2,0)))
I know I can use the TRUE, FALSE and BLANK status in Table1 to make this work more efficient. However, when I tried to do a multiple vlookup function nested in IF, it's not picking any numbers at all.
I thought I'd consult your guidance on this. Any assistance you can extend is truly appreciated.

I've created an invoice form which uses the Invoice number to return the results, there are multiples of the same number, say there could be 4 different lines using invoice number 72. So far I've created my vlookup fields as (First line)
=VLOOKUP(E4,'Invoice Sheet'!A:M,3,0)
and then following, so it doesn't repeat the same line/ and doesn't display #n/a
=IF(VLOOKUP(E4,'Invoice Sheet'!A:M,3,1)
Hi.
I've been playing around and cannot find a formula for an invoice. What I am after is as follows:
Invoices to looking like: 0809/01......0809/02 etc etc. The 0809 is the current tax year and obviously the munber after is the invoice number. Now what I am trying to do is after I've closed an invoice, say 0809/02, then when I open up a new excel invoice, the invoice number should automatically change to 0809/03.
Hope all this makes sense.
Hi ppl,
I am a complete novice so please be patient!
I have a workbook, with 226 seperate sheets enclosed. What I would like to do is to put an invoice number in the first sheet's invoice number cell and then the remaining sheets auto add a 1 to make up the next invoice.
For example, if I were to put 1200 into sheet 1's invoice cell, sheet 2's invoice cell would read 1201 and so on. All invoice cells are in the same place and are in B2.
Until I found this board I have had to do this manually! I know nothing about VB but can bake a nice cake if that will help
Thank you in anticipation of your help.

I have created an invoice on excel and would like to put a button on the page which will advance the invoice numbers when clicked.
for example I am currently wring up an invoice which is number 10045 when this invoice is completed I would like to be able to just click a button and the invoice number would move forward to 10046 (using the same spreadsheet)
Hello,
