Hello To All VBA Gurus,

I am looking for the best VBA way to do this…..
There are two tables: tbl1 and tbl2_divisors
Requirements
Tbl1 has a total column that needs to be converted to three other columns via dividing by a specific number. That specific number is specific to a prod. TBL2_Divisors has the three divisors type isted in three columns for a one each prod.
Need to a VBA to do the following:
•      If  E5  has a value, and
•      Look up the divisor for the combination of (prod + convert) in tbl2_divisor
•      Then divide E5/looked up and put in F5.
•      Likewise do the same for G and H as well.
•      Do the above for all the elements in column D


Thanks

Hi Rayne, in case you would consider a non-VBA solution, here is one using INDEX & MATCH.

Hope that helps

Just found out that both the rows in the tables can vary and will grow with time, so I am not sure if hardcoding them in formulas will work? What do you think for dynamic ranges?

Rayne,

Oops, crossing posts. The attached "expands" TBL_2_Divisors down to (but not including) the first blank cell below K5.
Option Explicit

Sub Build_Conversion()
Dim xLast_Row As Long
Dim xDivisor_End As Long

Sheets("Sheet1").Activate

xLast_Row = Range("A1").SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row
If xLast_Row < 5 Then
    MsgBox ("No data found - run cancelled.")
    Exit Sub
End If

Range("K5").End(xlDown).Select
xDivisor_End = ActiveCell.Row
If xDivisor_End = Cells.Rows.Count Then
    MsgBox ("No Divisors found - run cancelled.")
    Exit Sub
End If

Range("F5").Formula = "=IF($E5="""","""",IFERROR($E5/INDEX($L$5:$N$" & xDivisor_End & ",MATCH(""D_""&$D5,$K$5:$K$" & xDivisor_End & "),MATCH(""ff_""&F$4,$L$4:$N$4,)),""""))"
Range("F5").Copy Destination:=Range("F5:H" & xLast_Row)
With Range("F5:H" & xLast_Row)
    .Copy
    .PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
End With

Application.CutCopyMode = False
Range("F5").Select

End Sub

Open in new window

Regards,
Brian.

Apologies, Rayne, the two "Match" functions were both missing their Match Types.

No problem Brian,

I am not sure what you meant but your previous solution worked gold for me :)

ahh I see you remove the last ",0" from the old match below
MATCH(""D_""&$D5,$K$5:$K$" & xDivisor_End & ",0)

Got it :)

Hi Rayne, just to finish this off for both options, please refer attached using dynamic ranges which will adapt when new rows are added. The named ranges are based on an OFFSET function which makes them dynamic.
