# Need a replacement for an old Excel macro function - MF

Function:   MF!NC(Lp,f)
Function:   MF!dBX(Lp,f,n)
Function:   MF!BIL(pld,f)

Lp is supposed to be the first array, which is an octave band sound pressure level.
f is supposed to be the 2nd array, which is an octave band center frequency.

I do not know what MF is used for?  I did look within an Excel file given to me about the functions...  it had no macros under Edit Macro in it... and I haven't received yet a working copy of it in action....   Does anybody ever seen MF function before?

Thank you in advance for any help.

Hi,

Could you send a dummy example?

Did you look in the Visual Basic Editor (Alt-F11) those are functions not macros cannot be seen in Edit Macros?

Is MF one of the sheets (maybe very hidden)?

Regards

Ideally if you could upload the Excel file that has this problem that might make it easier for experts to take a look and trouble shoot things.

I understand that may not be possible if there is sensitive data, but if not it would help.

I was hoping to have a sample today but I've not heard back from the original person who asked this question.  Hopefully it won't be too long and I will have this resolved.  Thank you for your patience.  If it goes past Tuesday I will either close out with your comments thus far.... or delete the question.

Again, thank you for your replies.

MF is the should be the name of a worksheet within the workbook.

but it actually appears to be a reference to a new file.

if i type =MF!nc(5) into a cell, then excel pops a dialog asking for a file.

as a further test, I created a simple NC macro in a workbook and saved that as MF.xls

in a new workbook, I can then type  =MF!NC(5) in a cell and it produced the expected result.
note that excel updated the cell reference to be  =MF.xls'!nc(5)

upon closing the MF workbook, the reference changed to ='C:\ee\MF.xls'!nc(5) and still works....

I agree with robr in that MF is the name of the file in which the macro is located.
The macro call can be to the current file or an existing file.
Save the file with the old Macros as MF and try running the macros.  If that does not work, open the MF file and try running the macros.

Thank you all for your comments.   Hopefully within the month I will have a sample.  I did receive one late yesterday but need to get an explanation as to how it works.   Within in the one workbook it has over 30 worksheets with the final results but no macros within.

It has calculations like:  =IF(INDIRECT("'"&TEXT($G14,"0")&"'!"&TEXT(P$1,"0")&TEXT($C14,"0"))="","",INDIRECT("'"&TEXT($G14,"0")&"'!"&TEXT(P$1,"0")&TEXT($C14,"0")))
But I don't see which ones are where they are not working.

Please stay tuned to some more of my posts in the future.

Thank you again for all your  help.
