Auto Alphabetize List
I have a Master Data sheet for the input of personnel information. This information is then used in different Data Validation formats to be referenced by other sheets. Column P, I use the Concatenate formula to put together a needed grouping (Last Name, Shift/Kelly) taken from the Master Data sheet. I would like Column Q to then alphabetize Column P by the last name and also drop the blank cells. I would like this to be an automatic function, so as personnel are added or deleted, the alphabetical list will be updated as the information is changed.
I hope I've explained it well enough. I've attached a sample sheet to help make it easier to understand. I would prefer to do this via a forumla and not a macro, but if the only option is to use a macro, then so be it. Is this at all possible?

Auto-alphabetize And Column Continuation
This issue is really 2 problems in one.
Problem #1 - I would like to have several columns of alphabetized words one a page (no problem so far). I would like column "a" to automatically continue to column "b" and then to "c", etc... when the columns reach the bottom of the page. The resulting effect is that all columns on the entire page are filled before starting a new page.
Problem #2 - I would like to have a cell at the top of this page where, after I placed a word in it, excel would automatically place the word in it's proper alphabetical place in the above described list.

Alphabetize Combobox Items
I have a significant number of comboboxes on a multipage userform. Almost all of them are populated dynamically (it takes the user choice from one combobox, looks for that value on the spreadsheet and if it finds it, it takes whats in the next column and adds it to another combobox).
My problem is that all the items in these other comboboxes are not in alphabetical order. I'd like to find some code that will work for all my comboboxes so that I don't have to have the same code over and over again for each field.
I found the code below and that works to alphabetize the dropdown, but I still have to use it over and over again and change it for each fieldname (in red). I tried to use a variant and just make the value the same as each fieldname before it calls the sub and whats in red below was just my variable but that just crashes my excel.
Alphabetize Separate Cells Of Data In Same Row
I have a worksheet with 6,500 rows of data. In each row, there are up to 6 cells containing a name in "Last, First" format. I need to alphabetize the data from these 6 cells so they go across the row in order left to right, alpha by last name.
Example of my data layout:
Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
Row 1 Jackson, Bob / Anderson, Lisa / Cardinal, Mike
Row 2 Tomlinson, Steve / Dodge, Sarah / White, Brian
I need them to be in this order:
Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
Row 1 Anderson, Lisa / Cardinal, Mike / Jackson, Bob
Row 2 Dodge, Sarah / Tomlinson, Steve / White, Brian
Is there a formula I can apply that will pull from only the portion of the data before the comma in each cell? Or do I need to separate out all of the names so the first and last names are in separate columns for this to work?

I tried to search back through old threads and could not find the answer, so this is what I am trying to do.
I would like to eliminate the duplicate items within a particular cell and alphabetize the remaining items.

I’d do it manually, but at current rate, it looks like it will take me about 86 hours
Auto Generate List
I have an event that is one week long (7 days), with three functions happening each day (7 days - 3 columns per day).
There are 11 groups with various number of possible attendees listed in rows. Attendees of a given function is indicated by entry of a 1 or 2 (attending partner), Blank = not attending.
I would like to show a list of the attendees for a given function by clicking or moving my mouse pointer on the event function column header.
The list would need to be automatically updated when the attendees status changes (entry or deletion of 1 or 2)
Drop Down List Auto
I have Excel 2003 installed on the companies computers. Many people use an Excel file and I am trying to make their work easier. There is on command which has a dropdown list made by me. What I would like to find out is that is there any possibility to make Excel help the user to choose from the drop-down list (the list is quite big). Is it possible to select a cell in this column and type in the cell and then Excel help the user. I mean (this list contains country names in abc order) if the user types S and W then Excel auto-corrects it to SWEDEN. Can this be done with Excel 2003?
Auto Update Validation List
i have a list called "parts". i want this list to be updated everytime a new part # is entered into the list cell. i can get it to work in one cell. i have been able to get it to work in up to 6 rows, however i want it to work in up to 50 rows. here is the vba code i am using
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim lReply As Long
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Target.Address >= "$D$3" Then
If IsEmpty(Target) Then Exit Sub
If WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("parts"), Target) = 0 Then
lReply = MsgBox("Add " & Target & " to list", vbYesNo + vbQuestion)
If lReply = vbYes Then
Range("parts").Cells(Range("parts").Rows.Count + 1, 1) = Target
i am using insert>name>define for the list and this is what i used for that
like i said, it will work for d1-d6, then it stops working.
Auto Selection Of List Item
I have a budget document that has a selection (Named Range with list items in a drop down) Approved, Rejected, Awaiting Approval or Blank. What I would like to do is set a process that could approve all Awaiting Approval. My thought was to create another choice box at the top that allowed the user to choose approve all awaiting and it would select every matching item that was Awaiting Approval and change it to Approved. At the same time I would like it to set the date and time, this could just copy what I put in an associated field or be real time.
Auto-populate Userform From Course List
Some Background info:
This is my first post! I am a total novice when it comes to VBA in Excel (but I'm a fast learner!), so please bear with me if my question is either obvious or easy (or if this is a question that's been asked 14980213 times already). I have some programming experience, but all in C or C++, not in VBA--this makes the project challenging. I also have to hand this off in a few months and trust that it'll never break, ever--more challenging.
I'm trying to make a Participant Tracking System for some workshops we offer. The intent is to make a userform so that an administrator can input all the information for the participant in question. One important question on the form is which course the participant intends to take; the snag is that the current list may change over time.
The Spreadsheet is set up with Course headings starting at R8C8, and continuing across for all 16 courses we currently offer. The data for the participant is entered into Rows 1-7, and the date they completed the course in the appropriate column for that course. There are some formulas in Rows 1-7, the important one here counts up the number of classes currently offered.
So, below is the code i'm trying to use, at least to start. I am making a combobox that has all of the available classes.
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Dim ClassList() As String
'R5C6 contains a formula that calculates the number of classes offered. The value is currently 16
iCount = 0
y = 8
Do While iCount > R5C6
'R8C8 is where the class list begins.
'It continues horizontally along the rows for the 16 titles offered.
ClassList(iCount) = ActiveCell
y = y + 1
iCount = iCount + 1
.List = ClassList
.ListIndex = -1
I used to have a line that replaced the following chunk.
ClassList(iCount) = ActiveCell
ClassList(iCount) = R8Cy
and did nothing for me at all.
When I initialize the userform, I get a blank combobox. It doesn't do what I want it to do, but that's probably because I'm telling it to do something weird.
Auto Input Info From A List
I am having difficulty with this formula. In the attached spreadsheet. I want to just input the item number in column A, manually. From there I want it to take the information from the hidden list and fill in the rest of the fields. Example. I input in A4-2664, I want it to search the list for 2664 and take the corrisponding information. It would take the information from M5, O5, and Q5 and place that in C4, E4, G4. I place spaces in the hidden list to make the format the same.
Auto Sort A List By Values
Is there a way in Excel to have a list of names with values automatically re-sort whenever any of the values change.
The default sort I have in mind is ascending by values.
The values change to:
I now want Houston 1st, Boston 2nd etc - automatically - without me having to do a sort again by Value.
Auto Sort Drop-down List
Is it possible to autosort a drop-down list based on the number of times an item is selected? A drop-down might have 500 lines so it is user-friendly if the top lines are those selected by users the most often.
Auto Complete With Drop Down List
I have developed a spreadsheet that allows a user to "Autocomplete" a name by doubleclicking on a cell and typing in a few letters of the person's name.
I named the range that I want to appear in my list and I created the combobox in sheet 1, not in a userform. My problem is that when I doubleclick on a blue cell in Sheet 1 and type in a few letters of the person's name, the name doesn't fill into the cell. I have already specified a ListFillRange, so the Combobox knows what I am looking for. For some reason, the drop-down list is hard coded and won't populate the name that the combobox has already found. I don't receive any errors from the code that is already in place. If you could help me figure you how to get the names to populate in the blue cells, I would greatly appreciate it.
Attached is an example. If you try doubleclicking and typing in, say "Doe, John" in one of the blue cells in Sheet 1, you will see his name, but when you hit enter it won't populate. The cell stays blank!
Dynamic List With Auto-complete
I need to create a large dynamic named range for all the people in my church. From this list I would like to enter their offerings to the church in a new column that has auto-complete. Ex.

Auto Filters - Refreshing List Results
I have a worksheet with an auto filter to display only non-blank rows. Each row is a ledger account, with a cost. The formula in each cell sums the total of its corresponding gl in another worksheet, but also takes into account the region I am asking it to search based upon another cell. So the cost in a specific can fluctuate based upon which region I am telling the rows to lookup. So it can be blank with one region and populated with another. When I change the cell that tells the row data to look up a new region, the auto-filter does not automatically update the list of non-blank cells based upon the new region being searched, but rather the old one. So what is happening is I am left with an incorrectly auto-filtered result.
Is there a way to get the auto filter list to automatically update for the refreshed list of rows?
Auto Date Stamp With Drop Down List?
I'm producing a new spreadsheet to track issues and thier completion. I've used the code I have on another spreadsheet, that I got off this site, thanks. What I would like to change are the following:
1) The status column (F) uses a drop down list, located in cells Z1 to Z5.
When an option is selected, the date updates in column G automatically.
What I would like is for the date to only update in column G if the drop
down list is changed to Completed.
2) If the status is changed to completed by mistake, and then changed back
I would like the date to disappear.
Finally, can I make the date columns jump automatically so the person entering the data goes from column F to column H.
Auto Sort Values In Drop Down List

Day Of Week -day Of Month List Auto Setup
What I'm after is a sheet that self generates the day of the week in column A and the day of the month in column B. I have a month long sheet where daily entries get made in the DOW row, the day of the month is a reference. I have a macro to generate a new sheet for the next month and would like to auto populate the DOW and DOM. This typically gets done on the second day of the month (data from the first day is entered on the second)
Drop-Down List With Auto Complete As You Type
I have a large list of data records, 600+, and would like to use List Validation but find EXCEL's default Validation not appropriate for such long lists. What would be perfect is similar to what you get in Access, when you type in part of the record string required, a drop-down list appears and shows you the record entries that have that string within them and not necessarily in character order, quickly wittling down to the few records that apply and then use your arrow keys to move and select the correct record, etc. Example, I own a salon, and many shampoo ranges have many similar products:
Superstar Blow Dry Lotion
Superstar Leave In Conditioner
Custom Function With Auto List Members
I have created a UDF which determines what the name of the day is.
Public Function Dagnaam(daydate As Date, Optional Language As String = "Dutch")
weeknl = Array("Maandag", "Dinsdag", "Woensdag", "Donderdag", "Vrijdag", "Zaterdag", "Zondag")
weeken = Array("Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday", "Sunday")
dayno = Application.WorksheetFunction.Weekday(daydate, 2) - 1
Select Case Language
Dagnaam = weeknl(dayno)
Dagnaam = weeken(dayno)
What i would like is when the user uses this function in the worksheet the field Language holds a dropdown list with predefined languages.
Data Validation List Auto Complete
I am using the same VBA that is discussed in several threads on the internet to create a combobox on top of underlying excel validation. The most relevant post I have found on this site is linked below, however I am told that it has expired and I can not reply to it so I started this new thread.
Data Validation Autocomplete Via Combobox Modification
The VBA code discussed in the above linked thread is working pretty well in my excel file which has MANY different fields being validated. However, there is a problem that I can not seem to get past. Specifically, the combobox is currently showing the validated data behind it, but will also allow IN-valid data to be entered. Is there a way to stop this and force only valid data to be used (i.e., is there a way to force a "re-validation" on exit from the combo box)?
Auto-Update Validation List When New Entries Added To Source
how to make all cells displaying an item from the list source update with new information added to list source.
Cell "A1" on worksheet 2 displays the 3rd slot of information from list source on worsheet 5. I want cell "A1" on worksheet 2 to update when the list source information in the 3rd slot on worksheet 5 is changed.
The list is set up by naming the columns on Worksheet 5 and is set as a validation list on the other worksheets. So on Worksheet 2 column "A" has the validation

Auto Fill Cells Depending On Drop Down List Selection
I am trying to make a calendar spreadsheet to enable me to track allowance payments i am due from my company.
This payment is worked out by three conditions - where i am working (7 regions), how many days of the week (4,5,6 or7) and how many hours (<7,8-9 or 10-12)
I have made drop down lists to select each of the values for the three conditions and want to show the total for them
i can total the entire spreadheet for the month up using fairly large "COUNTIF" statements, but i want to be able to show what the exact amount is in each cell not just a complete total.
i.e. i am away for 6 days i get £15 extra, if i am in Europe i get another £50 and if i work 12 hours i get £30.
I want to be able to calculate this total in each cell for that day.
I can send a copy of the spreadsheet i have got at the moment if that will make things clearer than what i have tried to explain.
Automatic Auto Filtering: Filter The List And Have A Box For Users To Type In Text
I have a list of a couple of thousand (and more) individual items. I want to filter the list and have a box for users to type in text (there are no numbers) and the results will be seen automatically reducing in number as more text is entered. (Similar to the Windows HELP files )
eg, typing A (or a) will show all entries beginning with A (without pressing
"Enter" or similar
typing AB will show only entries beinning with AB
typing ABO will show .........I guess you will understand the idea.
I have tried various forms of Filter - Auto and advanced - but still cannot get the spreadsheet to do what I want. Unless I am not doing the Autofilter (or Advanced filter) correctly (I am still a relative beginner!) I still cannot find a way of simply adding letters to a cell or input box and the filtering takes place 'automatically' as the letters are added.
Air Force Mission Tracker-Auto Counting & Auto Copying
Making a mission tracker that requires less upkeep than my units previous methods. I am using Excel 2007 and have some things in mind that I would like it to do.
On the down side, I have only basic experience with excel and have never used macros or VBA.
Even if what I am after could be solved with functions (which I prefer), I simply do not quite know how to make what I want without assistance. Ok, now on to the description.
The mission tracker aside from showing a list of the missions we have done during our program, it needs to also generate metrics automatically. In my worksheet, I am using columns A-G and rows 1-501.
The mission scheduling type in Column E are listed below. The letters on the left are what I am using in the sheet, the part to the right is what it really means:
Column D has the day of the week listed as: Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sun.
now the metrics I need to be generated are the number of different types of each mission compared, how many of each type of mission was flown per day of the week, how many of each type of mission was flown per month.
Basically what I need is a way to automatically count the number of rows that meet a specific criteria throughout the range. This would require being able to check the value/text of multiple cells at a time and count the number of rows that meet that criteria.
[SOLVED] 1. The first part would be to have the worksheet be able to count the number of each type of the 9 mission scheduling codes throughout the range. I would be storing the count in new cells that would then be connected to pie charts.
[SOLVED] 2. The second part would be to count the number of each type of mission that was flown per day of the week. That would require searching both mission type and day of the week. All I would need is a working formula for 1 set, then I could switch mission codes and weekdays to match all the 63 possible outcomes.
3. Knowing the number of each type of mission flown per month. This would be checking the date and the mission type. The trickier part that comes up in my mind is that our programs span multiple calendar years, so it would have to track it by month and year, that way there is a difference between Jan 2009 and Jan 2010. The counted numbers would be used to make histograms. It would be nice if the chart titles could be automatic based on the dates inputed in the mission tracker. If I needed to choose a maximum time length for it to cover, I would pick 3 years.
4. I would like to figure out how to make an inputted line of data on the main tracker sheet to create a copy in the corresponding worksheets based on schedule type, that way a person could look at/print a specific type without having to sort the main list.
The actual goal is to make it where a person can enter the 1 line of data per mission (cells A-G) and the mission metrics update automatically after each mission is inputed allowing upper level supervision to have current information quickly whenever it is needed. Currently we need about a weeks lead time to get the information asked for on our current progress.
Auto Complete And Auto Delete With Data Validation
Within a data validation selection, are you able to do both Auto Complete and Auto Delete? I have this posted at another forum [url]but have not been able to find a solution (a copy of the file, test. zip is there as well). I am not sure it is possible, or, at least I have been unable to get it working. I can do each, but not both.

Named List: Data Validation To Restrict The User To Only Selecting Values In A List

List Displaying Data In Multiple Cells Based On List Selection
I am trying to create a drop down list that when selected will display data in the 10 rows below and 4 columns, so a total of 40 cells. I would like the data to be based on the selection in the drop down list.
The data looks like this,
Level 1 Sentinel10Level 1 Sentinel105
Level 2 Sentinel10Level 2 Sentinel167
Level 3 Sentinel10Level 3 Sentinel156
Level 1 Banga20Level 1 Banga401
Level 2 Banga20Level 2 Banga307
Level 4 Banga20Level 4 Banga0
i have 27 different combinations of the above list with up to 10 different rows. I have a label for each one, but i cannot get the rows below my drop down list to display the proper values base don the selection in the drop down list.
Validation List Based On Named Range Not Restricted To List
I am attempting to use a named range as my Validation data source but have two questions:
1) It seems when you use a named range as a source the user can enter in any data they want in that cell. I really only want the user restricted to the list I give them. If I enter the list manually in the source box then it works but I really want to use a named range
2) My range is fixed to 10 cells and the user can enter in as many variables as they want (up to ten). When a user clicks on one of the cells that the validation is set to read the range the user has to always scroll to get to the top. When selecting the cell Ecel always defaults to the bottom choice in the list. I want to minimize the VBA because Mac users will be using this and VBA seems to be touchy with macs.
Update Horizontal List Based On Vertical List (ins Column)
1. I have a list of several items in sheet 1. Lets say 30-40 rows.
2. I do a frequently update of this list.
3. In sheet 2 I want to have a copy of this list in row 1 from column A to Column x (depends on how long the list in sheet 1 is.)
4. When I change the list in sheet 1, could be in first, middle or last row- mayby several rows. The list in sheet 2 should be updated
5. The update of sheet 2 should insert a new column on the right place, according to the list in sheet 1.
Create Unique List From Matrix & List Frequency Of Each Occurrence
I've searched the forum and believe this thread to be the closest to what im looking for, but its doesnt completely apply: matrix to list conversion. I have an attachment to support my questions (see attached). I have a matrix of words (strings) that contain repeating and non-repeating contents. The matrix also has spaces which are of no value. Essentially, the VBA needs to ' analyze' this matrix and create a consolidated frequency list (as shown in the file).
The matrices are HUGE and therefore some of the clumsy VBA i am using is turning out to be a bit inefficient. The file also contains formulas and such that I cannot use AutoFilter nor can I use Insert or Delete rows...so the VBA shouldnt use those either.

Validation List: Wide As Widest List Item
I am trying to make some of my data validation dropdown list boxes narrower. I was told one way to do that is to use combo boxes. (If there are any other ways, please let me know!)
I don't think my combo boxes are working. I had tried to make a combo box appear in each data validation pulldown cell by using this tutorial:
I followed this tutorial word for word, but when I try to test the code at the end by double-clicking on a data validation pulldown cell, no combo box appears.
