Assigning Certain Cell Ranges Depending On What Is Chosen In Dropdown List Of 20 Things
Jul 16, 2009
I see that IF statements can only be nested 7 times. How do I create a cell that checks to see what item was selected in the dropdown box of 20 different choices and choose a particular cell range depending on what is chosen?
I would like to use or not use a dropdown list in data validation depending on the value of another cell. The application is to be able to choose a state from the dropdown list only if the country selected in another cell is "US". If the country is not US then I want the user to be able to fill in free text and there be no dropdown list. I know it's possible to have a dropdown list and allow entries without it being on the list but I need the dropdown list not to appear at all if the value is not US.
i mtrying to get a validation list change depending on what is chosen in another list. I have attached an example, Yellow box is my validation and weather List 1 or List 2 in chosen I want the red box to be a choose of the list attached to those options. I've tried to put an If in there but I’m al a loss.
I have a cell in my spreadsheet that I use to control the size of a column. I formatted the cell as a number and added data validation to make sure the number is greater than zero. Then I realized that I need to also allow for the option of auto sizing the column as well. This would require a data validation list type with something like True and False for the choices.
What I want to be able to do is have it both ways. I want a drop down list in that cell with the options Auto Size or Custom. If Auto Size is selected the cell value gets set to that. If Custom is selected I then want to be able to type in a number.
Is there a way to setup a cell such that the value is either an item from the drop down list or, entered directly (depending on the list selection)?
I know I can do it with dependent lists but that would require two cells, one for the auto size mode (true/false) and the other for manual width value.
So I have this assignments. Its about rental services. I need to create a formula where the price is automatically found from a table depending on what drop down menus are selected. One menu is the rental name and the other is the season i.e. high or low, therefore each rental has two prices.
I know i can use Vlookup if there was one drop down menu but how to do the other. I was think it will interms of if statement but i dont know...
Here is the link to the worksheet: [URL] ...........
I am hoping to create a drop down list of months in one sheet, and when I select a certain month, columns in about 10 other worksheets in the same workbook will either hide or unhide columns...
The spreadsheet is laid out with columns (C-N) for each month in the year, for actuals, then columns for budget and budget variance (O-P), then YTD Actual, YTD Budget and YTD Variance. When I select September, for example, I want October-December to hide, and leave Jan-Sep unhidden, while keeping the budget, YTD and variance columns.
see attached document - this is a stock record sheet. what i want it to do is when Bed is seleceted in column B - i want colum C to show the BedSize list which is in the lists tab. and the same with Chair i want it show ChairSize
i am making a simple complaint tracking system and there is a column where there are two choices Resolved and Unresolved if you choose resolved it copies the row to the resolved sheet and if it's unresolved it copies the row to the unresolved sheet. i attached a template to give you an idea, i want the first complaint to be copied to the resolved sheet and second one to the unresloved sheet, i don't want the status column which contains the choices to be copied to the other sheets, also the unresolved sheet doesn't have a 'date closed' column because the complaint is not yet resolved so i dont want it to be copied there, i want it only in the resolved sheet.
Is there anyway that when I choose (for example, Jan) the result shows the sum of January numbers. On the other hand, if I choose Feb, the results would be the sum of February. See Mar on cell C8 and Feb on cell E15.
I am carrying out some sensitivity testing on a model, and would like to greatly increase the speed of the process by being able to call in from a user defined cell a named range, which is then pasted to the right of the cell.
The attached file steps through the process I have in mind.
fill the column "Level 2 Area" based on the value selected from "Level 1 Area" which is coming from a drop down list. So the "Level 2 Area" will be a drop down list also based on the selected value from the drop down list from "Level 1 Area".
I have a excel file to keep track of sales pipeline. What I am looking for, is an automated utility or code that will allow excel to automatically move entire rows once a task is completed and can be moved to another sheet. In Prospect sheet I have a column for " sales stage" and here you have to select from a drop down menu, either "Prospect", "semi-qualifed" "Pre-qualified" "verbal" "closed-won" and Lost. What I would like, is that once you have selected one of the sales stage, the entire row or entry, will be automatically moved to a new sheet according to each stage.
Is there a way to create a drop down list from a comma delimited list in a single cell? For example, col A is Name & Col B is the delimited list - Blue,Red,Green (list can be different for each name). Would like a drop down list in col C that allows you to pick one of the values from Col B.
i have 5 lists of names which i want the sheet to enter depending on the cell value of C1. C1 is a drop down of 5 different departments so when C1=department 1 for instance i want A4:A25 to automatically update the list of names that i have against that department.
im sure its fairly simply but i just cant get any formula i use to work!
I have 3 related dropdown lists that work perfectly, if you enter data from left to right. But, if you click in the cell containing the second list, which is based on the first list, of which nothing has been selected, you can just type any value in the cell. Is there a way to prevent this, or at least validate that what is entered is a value in the list.
I inherited the attached spreadsheet and cannot figure out how to change the dropdown control and the tool tips? If you click in either of the top two yellow cells a form control dropdown appears...I can't seem to get to the properties of the dropdown? Also, when clicking in each yellow cell...a tool tip like pop-up appears. Those I cannot find a way to edit either? I can't find any code for any of this...and they all act the same when I disable macros?
Any way to apply a formula to a cell depending on what choice is made from a drop down box in a cell that it refers to.
I have a drop down box in A1 with 2 options: Cookie Making Costs - or - Cake Making Costs In cells A3 through A10, I have cells with the costs for all the ingredients (and B3 through B10 for cake ingredients). If I select Cookie Making Costs, I would like B1 to apply a formula that sums up all the costs associated with making cookies "=sum(A3:A10)" If I select Cake Making Costs, I would like B1 to apply the sum of the cake ingredients "=sum(B3:B10)"
I have a table showing data for 10 teams. There are however 10 different measures which are pulled from a seperate sheet using a dropdown box to select the measure.
One of the measures is example 390823 which needs to be format 390,823 so that thousands are shown, and other formats are, example, 89.9 which need to be 89.9%.
Ive gone to my other sheet and all the raw data is showing correctly with % and ,s. But my dashboard table can only have one format. How do i make it so that each measure pulls in the correct format when selected, without dragging the whole area and changing each time?
I'm trying to create a drop down list that will define the name of the cell so I can reference it in formulas or codings to change the format of various cells defined by a specific name.
I'm not even sure if I can have multiple cells defined as the same name
I'll be inputting data into cells, and I want the color of the cell to change depending if the data is one of these criteria: 'In Service', 'In Transit', or 'Must Purchase'. I can't just make separate criteria columns to list all the data, because the data is already placed in a specific order. So I want whoever is viewing this to know which entry fits which criteria from the color of the cell.
The only thing I could think of is inputting the cell data value, and a drop down menu to define the cell name. I'll input a conditional formatting function to format based on the defined name criteria.
I was wondering if there is a way to have a single cell display a value and a drop down list that shows the chosen value. For example, I want to be able to enter into a single cell "365" and select "Hours" from a drop down list and have both be displayed in the same cell. I want to do this because I like to be able to sort my spreadsheet and I have a lot of information that spans across the row that I want to keep tied together. Is this even possible?
