Read and Display formula Components

Hello All,

I have a VBA question :(
Not sure if this is possible or I am over thinking. Formula Cells in D8:D10 has some formulas that use components from range D15:D15. Now what I need (as I am dealing with 160 rows) is to list out the text names of the components in column F.
For example: if I loop through column D, and when my current cell is D10, I read its formula and then the corresponding F10 displays “  = (c1+c3+c4)/c4”

Is that possible?
Attached is example of the needed format…
Thank you

Hello Brian,
 
 thanks for your Golden help....
 
 For Each xCell In Range("F8:F10")
        xCell = "'" & Replace(Replace(Replace(Replace(xCell.Offset(0, -2).Formula, "D15", Range("C15")), "D16", Range("C16")), "D17", Range("C17")), "D18", Range("C18"))
    Next
      
      Just wanted to confirm whats happening here? Can you explain whats happening in the replace?
      
      Assuming my actual range for [xCell] is F8:F30, do I have to replicate the pieces for the 30th row in the replace string? in the for loop....

thank you :)

Let me know if there is more of a dynamic way, then I will open a up another separate question. No worries for points. :)
Rayne,

What happens to the "Component" table - is it simply moved down or is it elsewhere? Also, are you limited to a max of 4 components?

Thanks,
Brian.

Hello Brian,

Actually there are 18 components that will be used in the formulas :( F8:F30)
The components stay in the same cells (they dont move)
Rayne,

The "converted" formulas are in F8 to F30, so surely the actual formulas are in D8 to D30 - which would blast through the second column of the Components table. So the table must be somewhere else - but where?!

Thanks,
Brian.
