    Hello TERRY,
    Thank you for your comment. Yes, this is possible to do with selected cells only. To do this, you can use the third method, which is using a VBA code.
    First, you have to select the cells. Then go to the Developer tab >> Visual Basic.

    Then, run the VBA code that is provided in method 3.

    A dialog box will appear, showing the selected cell range. Now, save the file by following the given instructions in method 3.
    Open the file with Notepad or Wordpad, and you will see, the selected cells are only saved with double quotes.

    Thank you for your comment. In the initial example, Jim Brown, Robert Smith, and Henry James scored 65 in Science. So if you rank them according to the score of Science, you will get repeated ranks. But, as you can see, these 3 students got different scores in Psychology. So, we have ranked them according to the E column (Psychology). Hence, the rank is not repeated, and they got different ranks according to Psychology score.

    Hi P.Chan,

    The scanner cannot scan or scan wrong information as the text the code is generating is wrong in your case. I have tried the code and it is working properly.

    As for why the code isn’t running properly in your system is a bit complicated to trace. For starters, try troubleshooting and retry the code again.

    Dear NAM,

    Thank you for engaging with our article and I appreciate your insightful observation. Allow me to address your query and offer clarification on the terminologies utilized in the formulas.

    In the article, the term “Coupon Rate” refers to the fixed coupon rate applied to the principal amount during the last fixed period before the bond transitions to a floating rate. Conversely, “Market Rate” refers to the variable interest rate set by the market for the floating periods.

    I acknowledge your concern regarding the terms, and I wish to explain that the Cash Flow computation entails multiplying the Principal by the Last Fixed Coupon Rate for the initial fixed period. Subsequently, for the floating periods, the Cash Flow is calculated by multiplying the Principal by the respective Market Rates for each year.

    In the Discounted Cash Flow calculation, the appropriate discount rates used are the Market Rates for every corresponding year. This aligns with the procedure of discounting future cash flows to their present value using applicable interest rates.

    I hope this clarification addresses your concerns. If you have any further questions, please feel free to let me know.

    Kind Regards,
    Sumaiya Mirza

    Hello Roland Sprague,

    The MMULT function of Excel represents the matrix multiplication we perform in mathematics. We can use this function if there happens to be two ranges in a sheet representing two matrices and we want to multiply them.
    You can find out more about matrix multiplication in this section of the article. It is helpful for computing in linear algebra, transformation of coordinate systems, population modeling, etc.

    Dear BREANNA,

    Thank you for your positive feedback and I appreciate the opportunity to assist you further.

    To accommodate random additional payments, you can follow these steps below:

    First, insert a new column next to your dataset in column I and label it as “Additional Payment.” Next, in each row under the “Additional Payment” column, input the amount of any extra payment made for that particular month. Every month, these extra payments can be random.

    Modify the formulas in “Payment Amount” columns C, E, and G to include the additional payments. For example, update the formulas to incorporate the extra payment like this:


    Extend these adjustments to the formulas in columns D, F, and H as well ensuring the formula incorporates the additional payments. Lastly, drag the Fill Handle to AutoFill the formulas in each column for subsequent months.

    Hopefully, this solution has met your requirements. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask.

    Kind regards,

    Thanks for your comment. You can apply two criteria by using the SUMIF function twice in the formula. The formula is:

    Hello ANGEL,

    Thank you for your query. Counting the sheet of the new big table (sheet1) can be ignored. Suppose, you have added a new table named “April” and you want to include it in the big table. Unfortunately, the mother table cannot be updated automatically. What you can do is to create another query after inserting a new sheet and table.

    After adding a new sheet and table, follow the same process to pull data from different sheets using power query. But the problem is the previous query will be included in your new query. To remove that:

    1.Click on the dropdown icon.

    2.Uncheck Query1 >> Press OK.

    The new query is now removed.

    3. Click on the following icon >> Expand >> OK.

    The tables are expanded now. You can remove the marked column as it is not necessary.

    4.Now, close and load the table in a new worksheet. So, the previous mother sheet (sheet 1) will not be included now.

    You have to do this process every time you add a new sheet and table.

    Hi Zsolt!

    You are most welcome. It seems to me that you are trying to write a decimal number using a comma (,) instead of a decimal point(.). If you write the latitudes and longitudes as 42.328674 and -72.664658 instead of 42,328674 and -72,664658 the function should not return any error and you should get your expected result.

    Hello Andrea!

    You could follow these alternative solutions below to solve your problem:
    Remove any blank cells or non-date entries in the date column. Filter out non-date values and ensure that all cells in the date column contain valid date data.
    Click on the drop-down arrow in the date filter, and check the filtering options. Make sure the desired date range or specific dates are selected. Adjust the filter criteria accordingly.
    Refresh the pivot table to ensure it reflects the most recent changes in your data. Right-click on the pivot table and select Refresh.
    Create a new pivot table and see if the date filter works. If it does, the original pivot table may be corrupted. Copy your settings to the new pivot table or recreate it.
    Ensure that you are using a compatible Excel version for the features you are trying to use. Update Excel to the latest version if possible.

    At the beginning of Method 1, it was mentioned that “we have named the range of the ‘Fruits’ column with Fruits”, but the process wasn’t shown. Did you use the Named Range feature for your dataset? If not, first use the Named Range and then follow the steps as mentioned. Hope you find this helpful.

    Hi Gabolete Fane,

    Glad this was helpful to you. “Balance stock” can technically become “opening stock”.
    The balance stock refers to the inventory at the end of the period while the opening stock is the inventory at the beginning of a period. So, if your next period starts right after your current period, the balance stock becomes the opening stock. It depends on the time periods you are considering.

    Hi Alonso,

    The solutions focus on working with the objects that are creating the issue. If your Excel file is frozen and you can’t perform any task, it is better to force quit the file using the Task Manager. Excel tends to autosave the files in those instances. If it doesn’t autosave, you may need to resort to third-party data recovery tools.
    In case the problem occurs every time you open the file, try repairing the file or opening it in safe mode. If all of that fails and you need to extract the data, try opening the file in other spreadsheet applications like Google Sheets. That should retrieve most of the data and avoid adding the object.

    Thank you for your comment. To show the data for specific columns (For example: A,C,D,I,P) instead of the entire row you can use the following code.

    Option Explicit
    Sub SearchMultipleSheets()
        Dim wsh As Worksheet, ash As Worksheet
        Dim all As Range, dst As Range
        Dim What As Variant
        Dim columnRange As Range
        Set ash = ActiveSheet
        Set dst = ash.Range("A6")
        What = ash.Range("A4").Value
        Application.ScreenUpdating = False
        For Each wsh In Worksheets
            If wsh.Name = ash.Name Then GoTo NextSheet
            Set all = SearchAll(wsh.Columns("A"), What, LookAt:=xlWhole)
            If Not all Is Nothing Then
                Set columnRange = Union(wsh.Range("A" & all.Row), wsh.Range("C" & all.Row), wsh.Range("D" & all.Row), wsh.Range("I" & all.Row), wsh.Range("P" & all.Row)) ' Add more columns as needed
                columnRange.Copy dst.Resize(1, columnRange.Columns.Count)
                Set dst = dst.Offset(1, 0)

    Dear NURIT,
    Thank you so much for your comment. I have changed the date format to United States format in the code. You have to change the VBA code in the subroutine named Private Sub Create_Calender(). Following is the code for your required date format.

    If i < Weekday((Month_Box.Value) & "/1/" & (Year_Box.Value)) Then

    Thanks for your query.
    In the VLOOKUP function #N/A error occurs when you type the wrong lookup value or worksheet name. So, check if you have given the lookup value and worksheet name properly.
    Again, VLOOKUP can only look up values to the right of the lookup value. Be careful about this.

    Dear MARK,
    Thank you for your query.
    Here is the dataset I will use to show the solution to your problem.


    After creating a PivotTable, I have copied the PivotTable 5 times. So, there are 5 PivotTables in my worksheet now.


    Now, we have to create a drop-down menu from the list of PivotTables.

    data validation

    Next, copy this VBA code into your VBA code editor. You have to change three things in this code. These are: the cell address of where you placed the drop-down menu, the filter values, and the field name that you want to filter.

    Sub Apply_Filter_PivotTable()
        Dim pivotTableName As String
        Dim pivotTable As pivotTable
        Dim field As PivotField
        Dim filterValue As String
        ' Change the cell address to where you placed the dropdown menu
        pivotTableName = Range("A2").Value
        filterValue = "Cash" ' Change this to the desired filter value
        On Error Resume Next
        Set pivotTable = ActiveSheet.PivotTables(pivotTableName)
        On Error GoTo 0
        If Not pivotTable Is Nothing Then
            ' Change "Field Name" to the name of the field you want to filter
            Set field = pivotTable.PivotFields("Payment Method")
            field.CurrentPage = filterValue
            MsgBox "Pivot table not found."
        End If
    End Sub
    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
        If Target.Address = "$A$2" Then ' Change to the address of your dropdown cell
        End If

    VBA code

    To get the output, select the PivotTable from the drop-down which you want to filter, and then Run the code by pressing the F5 key.
    For your convenience, I have given the Excel file: Filtering PivotTable with drop-down menu.xlsm

    Dear Stuart,
    I am glad that you find this article informative. Thank you for your query. The VBA code which I have inserted in step 4 is in Sheet1 under Microsoft Excel Objects Section.

    Dear Yosh,
    Thank you for your query. Yes, you can determine the sum of YTD number. Firstly create a table like the following for each Month’s Sales of “Jimmy” for “Laptop”.
    Copy this formula in cell C21.
    Sales for each Month
    You will get the sales for each month.
    Next, to calculate the “YTD Grandtotal” copy this formula in cell C27.
    Subtotal of YTD
    I hope this method will solve your problem. Thank you!

    Dear L,
    Thank you for your comment. This formula calculates a date value. Here is a breakdown of what each part of the formula does:


    $B$4: This is the reference to cell B4 which contains the date value you enter in Customize Dates Table.
    WEEKDAY(C$3,1): This function calculates the weekday of the date in cell C3. The argument 1 specifies that the weekday numbering should start on Monday (1) instead of Sunday (default value of 0).
    $AM$7: This is a reference to the cell containing a number that specifies the Start Month. (e.g. 1 for Monday, 7 for Sunday).
    IF((WEEKDAY($B$4,1)-($AM$7-1))<=0,7,0): This function checks whether the weekday of the date in cell B4 is earlier in the week than the specified start day of the week. If it is, the function returns 7 (the number of days in a week) to adjust the date calculation later. If not, the function returns 0.
    B4-(WEEKDAY(C3,1)-($AM$7-1))-IF((WEEKDAY($B$4,1)-($AM$7-1))<=0,7,0)+1: This formula subtracts the weekday of the date in cell C3 from the date in cell B4, then adds the start day of the week minus 1, and finally subtracts the result of the IF function. This calculates the first day of the week that contains the date in cell B4. The final +1 adds one day to get the actual start date of the week.
    If you want 4 weeks in one sheet, just add 3 more weeks similarly in the existing sheet. Hope this will help you.

    Dear Max,
    Thank you for your query. Changing the currency is not the reason behind the incorrect output of the module 2 code. Actually, the code is not working for the last 3 digits of the whole number part. Here is the modified code of module 1 that may help you. This will give the correct result hopefully.

    Copy the code in your module and Run the code.
