Allowing formula to follow an item rather than the worksheet line!Posted by Gavin on March 14, 2001 3:26 AM
Hi, I hope someone can help and that this is not too basic!
I have a spreadsheet with multiple worksheets.
Each worksheet represents a region with say 30 products and quantities.
One 'master' worksheet contains all the accumulated totals of the other worksheets.
My issue is that I have a basic formula for the accumulations, but the cells in the formula correspond with the worksheet line rather than the product.
This means that if I delete/add a product line to a 'region' worksheet it throws all the fomula out in the accumulated worksheet!

Gavin, why don't you consolidate all of your
regional data into one list and then use a
PivotTable to summarize it?

Because its put onto an FTP site and each regional manager has access only to their worksheet!

When you say "delete/add" does this mean your are deleting the entire row and adding entire rows ?
What type of formulas are you refering to and are you using relative or absolute references ?
Have you tried naming the ranges ?
Sorry about raising more questions than you have asked, just trying to get a clear picture.
