Changing Macro Cell References Based on Edits in Excel

If you're working with a large spreadsheet in Excel, you may find yourself needing to change cell references often. This can be a tedious and time-consuming task, especially if you have to do it manually. Luckily, there's a way to automate this process so that you can save yourself some time and effort.

To change macro cell references based on edits in Excel, you'll need to use the R1C1 reference style. This reference style uses relative references, which means that the cell references will change when you edit the cells in your spreadsheet.

To use the R1C1 reference style, select the cell that you want to edit and then press the F4 key on your keyboard. This will toggle the reference style between absolute and relative. Make sure that the R1C1 reference style is selected and then make your changes.

Now, whenever you edit a cell that's referenced by another cell, the reference will automatically update itself. This can save you a lot of time and effort, especially if you have a large spreadsheet with many cells that need to be updated.
