How to list all formulas in Excel?

Normally, in Excel, we can quickly display formulas in the cells, but, Excel doesn’t provide a feature for listing all formulas in a worksheet. Listing all formulas of a worksheet can help us to keep trace of the cell values with its real formulas. Here, I can talk about creating a VBA code to solve this problem.

The following VBA code will help you to list the formulas of a selection or a worksheet, please do as follows:

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys, and it opens the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module Window.

VBA code: List all formulas of a worksheet

Sub ListFormulas()
'Update 20141027
Dim Rng As Range
Dim WorkRng As Range
Dim xSheet As Worksheet
Dim xRow As Integer
xTitleId = "KutoolsforExcel"
Set WorkRng = Application.Selection
Set WorkRng = Application.InputBox("Range", xTitleId, WorkRng.Address, Type:=8)
Set WorkRng = WorkRng.SpecialCells(xlFormulas, 23)
If WorkRng Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set xSheet = Application.ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets.Add
xSheet.Range("A1:C1") = Array("Address", "Formula", "Value")
xSheet.Range("A1:C1").Font.Bold = True
xRow = 2
For Each Rng In WorkRng
    xSheet.Cells(xRow, 1) = Rng.Address(RowAbsolute:=False, ColumnAbsolute:=False)
    xSheet.Cells(xRow, 2) = " " & Rng.Formula
    xSheet.Cells(xRow, 3) = Rng.Value
    xRow = xRow + 1
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

3. Then press F5 key to run this code, and a prompt box will pop out to remind you to select a range or the whole worksheet that you want to list its formula cells, see screenshot:

Nice work: I would like to make a small addition

1)Your code needs: Dim xTitleId as String
2) doesn't say whether the formulas are array formulas or just simple ones.

Thanks for the code, but Excel keeps saying: variable not defined (highlights: xTitleId = "KutoolsforExcel")
Any advice?

Best regards
