Function Examples

  • Translate worksheet function names to and from English
    This workbook can translate worksheet function names from the local language used in Excel to the English function names, e.g. from German to English if you are using a German edition of Excel. It is also possible to translate from English function names to the local function name, e.g. from English to German if you are using a German edition of Excel.
    If you are using an English edition of Excel you'll have little use for this workbook.

  • A lookup function with a twist
    If you look up numbers/text from lists/databases that contains several duplicate values, you will have use for this function. If the value you are looking for occurs more than once, the function displays a dialogbox that lets you select which value you want the function to return.
    The example will only work in Excel97 because of the use of a UserForm, but can easily be converted to Excel5/95.

Re: My worksheet works slow
I assume your problem is related to running macros.
You can speed up macro execution by:
- declaring all variables with their proper data type (e.g. Dim r As Long)
- turn off ScreenUpdating (e.g. Application.ScreenUpdating = False)
- turn off Calculation (e.g. Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual)

After your code has finished remember to reset Calculation and ScreenUpdating (usually not necessary in Excel):
- turn on ScreenUpdating (e.g. Application.ScreenUpdating = True)
- turn on Calculation (e.g. Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic)

Re: How to update the list in particular cell
Take a look at the VLOOKUP worksheet function in the built-in help in Excel, this function (or a similar one) will probably be useful.

How to update the list in particular cell based on the selection of the previous cell value?(Used da
I have created a form in an excel sheet. On select of a particular value from the list the list in the next cell should change accordingly.e.g if I am selecting any name say Riya from the list in the cell I2 the list in the cell J2 should give list that only matches for Riya. And also this change should take place only in Range J. Can u suggest any solution to it?
