View Full Version : Question on Row References in VBA

05-02-2013, 06:17 AM
Hi All,
I really apologize for posting what I am guessing is going to be a really stupid question, but I am trying to teach myself VBA and need a hand with something. I have an array formula that goes in several cells. Using what I found online threw several searches, I found the following (which is only a part of the code): MIN(ROW(Color!$A$2:$A$500))+1), ROW(1:1). It works perfectly and when I drag it down, the row reference changes from ROW(1:1) to ROW(2:2), as it should. If I wanted to use VBA to place this array in the cells though, how would I reference the ROW(1:1) and get it to change to ROW(2:2), etc.? Nothing I have tried as worked. Any suggestions would be welcome!
Thank you!

Dim LR As Long 'Holds the last row number you put the formula in
Dim i As Long
For i = 1 to LR
Cells(i,ColumnReference).Formula = "=MIN(...etc),ROW(" & i & ":" & i & ")"

If the formula goes in many cells, you will get a smaller file size doing the calculations in VBA and putting only the result in the Cell. Youcan to use an Event to trigger the procedure, (AKA, macro.)

Hi Sam,
Thank you so much! How do I do the calculations in VBA, like you mentioned, and just put the results in the cell? I think that is really what I want to do.
Thanks again!

What is the formula? Include workbook references even if they are not in the cell's formula.

Cell formula on sheet1 example

=A1+Sheet2!A1 Formula you show me

Hi Sam,
This is the full formula:

=IFERROR(INDEX(Data!$A$2:$A$500, SMALL(IF(ISBLANK(Data!$A$2:$A$500)+ISERROR(Data!$A$2:$A$500)++IF(Data!$B$2: $B$500<>A$1,1,0), "", ROW(Data!$A$2:$A$500)-MIN(ROW(Data!$A$2:$A$500))+1), ROW(1:1))),"")
