Use Financial Consolidation Excel Add-in in Excel Tables

Dear Experts,

I am trying to use the Financial Consolidation Excel Add-in in combination with and Excel Table and I run into issues defining the variable for i.e. a GetCtLabel retrieve.

Assume Dimension X = Company and Company X1 is located in cell A2 where the Column A = defined as Company. In column B I would like to retrieve the long description of Dimension X.

So my formula would be:


Where [@Company] defines the intersection between current row and the column of variable Company.

For some reason the GetCtLabel command can't seem to deal with this, it only seems to work with predefined fixed cell outside of an Excel Table.

Is there any way to get this to work or is the only solution to not use Tables (which would be a pity).

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Arthur

    Looking at this:

    ...seems that GetCtLabel is rather limited and wants a cell reference as first parameter

    I will check if I can get this working in the way you would like
