Using Dynamic Cell Address As Formula Location

What do you mean by: "use the cell address as a formula location"?

Do you want to use that reference in another formula?

Assume the result of that formula is in cell A1.

Since that formula can return either a blank or a text reference you'd have
to test for the blank:

=IF(A1="",value_if_true,....................)

If A1 does contain the text reference then you need to use the INDIRECT
function to reference it: INDIRECT(A1). Since you didn't describe how you
want to use that reference I don't know how to finish the above IF formula.

Using Dynamic Cell Address As Formula Location

Oh, in that case you'll need to use VBA code. I can't help you with that.
Someone that can do that will probably "stop in" or, you could post this
question in the programming forum.

Using Dynamic Cell Address As Formula Location

Hi

The following short piece of code may help to get you started on a
solution
Sub test()
Dim c As Range
' cells(1,1) is "A1" Change both references to the same cell location
as you
Set c = Cells(1, 1)
If c = "" Then Exit Sub
Range(c.Text) = "=\$B5*E11"
End Sub

You can copy the code and paste it into your Visual Basic Editor
(VBE) in a Standard Module located in your file.

To do this,

Alt + F11 (open VBE)
Ctrl + R (open Project Explorer)
Select the file name on the left
Insert Module
Paste code in Module

David McRitchie has lots of useful help on his site at
