Dragging in values from on table to another...

Hi guys can you help me?

I am struggling with a slow spreadsheet

I use aprox 250 Vlookup formula to drag through information from 
sheet to display in a formatted sheet, this makes re-calc a 'cup of te
and cookies' task....as I am now getting fat off cookies, can yo
explain if VBA would be a lot quicker and how I would go about it?

This is the current state of play:-

Sheet Range Called 'QuestionData' is as follows

45012                 Apples                 Green               
49018                 Oranges              Orange               Round
85221                 Pear                    Greenish           

and the formatted table is:

Column A         Column B  etc....

Number            Colour                                      
85221               =vlookup(A1,QuestionData,3,FALSE)

(Sorry if the example tables are not clear)

Is there a way (using VBA) 

I can say.....

Lookup A1 in 'Formatted Table', search Question Data and Find Vaule
Copy associated column A to 'Formated Table' B

Move to next values in Formatted table and search Question Data an
Find Vaule
Copy associated column A to next row in 'Formated Table' B

keep looping till row (3000)

end Sub

(It would also need to move to the next value if value does not exis
in the table called 'Question Data' as some values although hav
numbers do not have details........yet, as they are added to th
'Question Data' the script would pick them up the next time it wa

Sorry 'Bout the psuedo, pig latin type dummy code...but hopefully yo
see what I mean???

All the best

#Value Error
Hi I am getting a #value error. The worksheet is set up horizontally. These are the formulas: At the quarter, I have =If(H33="","Quarterly",D33+F33+H33), and so on at each quarter. At the end, the formula in AB33 is =Sum(D33-E33+F33-G33+H33-I33+J33-K33,etc...) I guess it doesn't like the "quarterly" business. Can anyone give me something I can understand that will work around the problem?? Thanks for you help! -- OneFineDay If desired, send your file to my address below. I will only look if: 1.

Drag and drop with CRichEditCtrl
I have an application that makes heavy use of the rich edit control. One of the things I needed to do was to customize text when it is pasted or dropped onto the rich edit control. This wasn't too hard to do: I have an object implementing IRichEditOleCallback attached to the rich edit, and in the QueryAcceptData() method I modify the data as needed before adding it to the control. My problem comes with drag and drop, specifically with the "move" drop operation. Following the MSDN documentation, my QueryAcceptData() method returns S_FALSE to indicate that it's processed the d...

Conversion of Cross-Tab Formatted data to qualify for Pivot Table
It's amazing how one can take pivot table data -- double-click in the data section and it "converts" the PT format to a data-table format (fit for a database environment, say access)... Well any way, I receive files that are in a sort of a crosstab format, which I'd love to be able to get to respond to (the creation) of a Pivot table. Is there a way to make this "conversion"?

My Drag Image Flickers

Q: hyperlink to value and not cell?
I have an Excel workbook (database) with three sheets. The first sheet is an index with hyperlinks to cells in the other two sheets. The hyperlinks are to alphabetical indexes ex: A 144 Snakes 145 T 146 Truffles 147 Turtles 'A' is the column and the numbers are the row numbers. I noticed that when I deleted a row on the second sheet, that the hyperlinks below that row stayed fixed to the cell to which I had assigned then and didn't shift up with the value to which I had intended the cell to link. Using the above example: If I had a hyperlink to A1...
