Auto Alphabetize List

Nov 25, 2009

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

Feb 13, 2007

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.

How To Alphabetize A List

Mar 27, 2014

Is there a way to modify the following macro (graciously provided by user Alkey) so that it simultaneously alphabetizes the list as well? Actually, I would prefer a second macro, because I don't always want to alphabetize my lists. So, I guess I would need a function called something like Concat_Range_Alphabetize.

Alphabetize Combobox Items

Jan 19, 2010

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

Nov 30, 2009

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?

For example,
Currently:

Id do it manually, but at current rate, it looks like it will take me about 86 hours

Drop Down List Auto

Nov 3, 2008

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?

How To Auto Select Next Name In A List

Jan 3, 2012

Let's say you have a list of names:

BT
4 McDonald, Ronald
5 McCheese, Mayor
6 Burglar, Ham
7 King, Fakehead
8 Hut, Pizza
9

and you had "McCheese, Mayor" typed in AK23.

NOW, because you have that name in AK23, you want the next cell (AK31) to automatically select "Burglar, Ham". How?

So forth, and so on, for 2 more names....

When you get to the bottom of the list, and "Hut, Pizza" has been placed, how would you get it to start back at the top?

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.

=OFFSET(lists!$A$1,0,0,COUNtA(lists!$A:$A),1)

like i said, it will work for d1-d6, then it stops working.

Auto Selection Of List Item

Feb 5, 2010

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 Sort A List By Values

Jul 9, 2003

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.

eg.

CITY VALUE
Sydney 100
Boston 200
London 300
Moscow 400
Houston 500

The values change to:

Sydney 5000
Boston 250
London 8000
Moscow 300
Houston 50

I now want Houston 1st, Boston 2nd etc - automatically - without me having to do a sort again by Value.

Auto-populate Userform From Course List

Apr 10, 2007

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
Redim ClassList(R5C6)

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.
Range(R8Cy).Select
ClassList(iCount) = ActiveCell
y = y + 1
iCount = iCount + 1
Loop

With ClassListBox
.Clear
.List = ClassList
.ListIndex = -1
End With

End Sub

I used to have a line that replaced the following chunk.

Range(R8Cy).Select
ClassList(iCount) = ActiveCell

It read

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 Complete With Drop Down List

Feb 21, 2008

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!

Dropdown List That Auto Populates 2 Fields?

May 12, 2014

I am currently building a sheet that requires a drop down box that will auto-populate two separate fields. I have tried to the point of being suicidal to make this work but to no avail.

A detailed explanation:

The worksheet containing the drop down list and fields that need to auto-populate.
sheet example.png

The raw data, located on a separate tab in the same workbook. (Note: there are over 1500 rows of data)
sheet example 2.png

The drop down box will be in the "Description" column and will contain a list of services my company provides. Once selected it will auto-populate the "Rate" column and the "Item ID" column. The raw data that the list is pulling from is located on a separate tab.

I can make the list just fine, it's easy enough to just go to the Data Validation feature and point to where you want the list and where you want the data to come from, but getting the list to pull the data from different columns and go into the columns on the work sheet is apparently beyond my knowledge of excel. I figured it would just be a simple formula setup through the VLOOKUP formula wizard but I've tried it at least 20 different ways, all of which fail. I've tried HLOOKUP too but it also failed.

Dropdown List To Auto-fill Cells

Feb 19, 2013

Now, is it possible to select bathroom from the drop down land when selected the list I created in sheet 2 show up in the cell next to bathroom? Also, is it possible to have this happen every time i select a different item from the drop down list?

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 Populate Distinct List From One To Another Table

Sep 12, 2012

I have two tables on two different worksheets. I would like to automatically populate a distinct list into column A in table 2 from the data in column A in table 1.

Table 2 must auto populate from table 2 every time a new row is added into table 1 - without any extra user interaction e.g. pressing a button etc. No offense intended to my better half but if she has to do anything more than enter a new row in table 1 she'll likely manage to screw it up after a week

I kind of managed to get it working using the below formula but both sets of data must be in tables so I can't copy the formula down the column without creating redundant table rows.

=INDEX(Classes!$A$2:$A$999, MATCH(0, COUNTIF($A$1:A1, Classes!$A$2:$A$9), 0))

Example

Sheet 1 = "Classes"
Column A = "Student Names"

John
Mike
Paul
Andrew
Paul
Paul
Mike

Sheet 2 = "Total Due"
Column A = "Student Names"

Paul
Mike
