Convert cell addresses in JSON format

Post by vilas desai »

Hello Experts,

Please see the attachment for reference. Sheet 2: In Col C, I have names for "parameter",
in Range D2:P2, I have names of "files" and in Range D3:P40 I have cell addresses.
What I would like to achieve is in sheet 1 as an example.

Please help
Best regards

I'm afraid I don't even begin to understand what you want.

Ok, sorry about that, Hans
Let me try again please.

The important objective besides other, is to convert cell addresses in the "M14" format to "row":14,"column":13 format

There are 40 parameters arranged in col C3:C40 (Fluid Name, Fluid Phase,.......Pressure Loss @ Meter Min Flow)
There are workbook names in range D2:P2 (CVBLV, CVBFY,........Transmitters)
So this is like a 2D table. Parameter Vs File names.

in cell D2 of the worksheet 2, we have address P13 that corresponds to Parameter=Fluid Name in the file CVBLV.
Below is how I want to describe this situation.

in worksheet 1,
cell A2 = file name, in this case, it is CVBLV
Cell B2 = [{"parameter":"Fluid Name","row":13,"column":16}] meaning "parameter" by name "Fluid Name" has a value in cell P13 of workbook CVBLV

If I could explain this successfully then I will continue with the rest, which is o same lines.

Best regards

One of the reasons I didn't understand is that Sheet2!C4 contains "Fluid Name" but on Sheet1, you use "Fluid Process". Etc.
I now assume that was misleading.
See Sheet3 in the attached version.

See the attached version. It is now a macro-enabled workbook (.xlsm)

1. The end brackets should be present, but Excel may not display all characters unless you turn on Wrap Text.
2. Insert the following line below Function GetParams(Param As String) As String:

Code: Select all

    Application.Volatile
The results in column B on Sheet1 should now be updated automatically if you change something on Sheet2.

Hans
