    Bilinear Interpolation VBA function for range

    I am using Bilinear function to interpolate within a table.

    Now the argument for Bilinear function is =Bilinterp(X,Y,"Range")

    Step 1: X values comes from another table, and so is Y

    Step 2: Sum over (Bilinterp(x1, a1*y1, range)+ Bilinterp(x1, a2*y2, range) and so on..
    Lets the value of above is value 1. Similarly Value 2 for X2

    Step 3: Sum b1* value 1 + b2* value 2 and so on..

    Please help me. I am attaching the file

    Well, data is a bit inconsistant - you look for X 6.5 while no data for 6. Also for Y and X = 15.5, while no input data for 16.

    you can change formulas as you complete missing data.

    at the moment - I see no need to create custom functions in VBA - you can calculate this easily in the worksheet - see attached, there are only 3 formulas:

    in P6 (I prepared intermediate stage table headers with X 6.5, 7.5 etc in column O and row 5) - your step1:
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    copied down and right
    then in P14 (and copied right) your "step 2":
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    and finally in Q16 array* formula:
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    not in P16 because you gave no coefficient for X=6.5 (coeff. table starts from 7.0-8.0)


    *...confirmed by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to activate the array, not just ENTER. You will know the array is active when you see curly braces { } appear around your formula. If you do not CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER you will get an error or a clearly incorrect answer. Press F2 on that cell and try again.

    Re: Bilinear Interpolation VBA function for range

    Thank you so much.. firstly sorry for inconsistent data.


    May i ask if this can be done without the external table being created, as I am looking for final number. If this is possible to include into one formula, or if I can create my own formula that takes in

    (X range value, X coefficient range values, Y range Values, Y Coefficient range value, Table of X and Y)

    and gives the output.

    Thank you for the kind attention

    Regards
    Rajsh

    Re: Bilinear Interpolation VBA function for range

    Well,
    I did a kind of "wraper" to this function (which was already a wraper for another one)

    After correcting data try
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    in your sheet

    see attachment (all data in columns N and to the right is left only to verify the result. You can delete it.).

    The code for the function is:
