Auto-Populate Field Based On Dropdown Box Selection?
Jan 20, 2013
I have a dropdown list selection on the form for types of machines. The list of machines, their sizes and related noise level are in a chart on worksheet 2 and I'd like to automate the form so that when the machine is selected, the related noise level auto populates.
The dropdown box has been put in the form using the data validation function.
If I make a selection using a drop down, can I have it auto populate another cell with information associated only to the made selection? For instance, if I select January from drop down in A1, I want it to auto populate B1 with 100.
I found many examples on this forum of how one can pull in data from closed workbooks, or copy it and have it stored in the active sheet. So far so good, but I need a solution which would do the opposite - I need the macro to take a range of data form the active sheet store it in a closed workbook and save any changes in the target workbook without opening it.
For example, I have a master sheet that has a drop-down list of the months January and February, which have their own sheets. I am trying to populate the sales of the week 1, 2 ,3 ,4 in the master sheet based on the same data for the month chosen.
[URL]....When I select a name in column B, it populates column C's dropdown with that name's list of units. When I select a unity type in column C, I'd like it to automatically populate column E in the same row with the value associated with that unit. The values associated with a particular unit can be found to the right of the sheet. So if in row 2 I select Blake in column B, then Unit 5 in column C, I'd like column E to be populated with 14.
Edit: using Excel 2007.
I attached stripped down version of the sheet which is small enough to post. None of the things I removed should affect the topic at hand. The full sheet is available at rapidshare.
I am trying to create a sheet for identifying work hazards based on the job assigned. So what I have set up is a drop down list to select the job type. Once this job type is selected I want the pre written hazards to autopopulate in the hazard box. I would also like the required PPE to appear in the PPE box for the job selected.
I have 6 different choices in the drop down list. For each choice I have the hazards and PPE in a separate sheets in the worksheet.
Is there a way to get this information to autopopulate?
I have the catalog #s of some products in column A, and I have the brand in column B, Product name in Column C, and the model # in Column D. I want to create a formula that if I select the catalog # it should autopopulate the brand in column B, product name in column C and the model # in column D!!
And I have the brand/product & model # in a different sheet!!
I have a tab called 'Tab1' in which I have column called 'Col1' and 'Col2'.
I have another tab called 'Tab 2' with columns 'ColA' and 'ColB'. When I enter a text in Col1(Tab1) I would like that text to be compared to data in 'ColA' from Tab 2 and when match found then get the corresponding value from ColB and autopopulate it in Col2 of Tab1.
I am trying to auto generate a calendar based on two drop down menus - Month and Year.
Once the month and year is selected I want to import all work orders onto the calendar based first on the "Labor Name" found in the list of work tab, then assign each work order for that labor name to the respective date on the calendar for the month.
Every time a name is selected in column C12:C15, I need that respective row to populate with $10 in column J. When column C12:C15 is blank, I need that respective row to read $0 in cloumn J. It's either one (10) or the other (0).
There are rows above and below it as well that have nothing to do with this, so the formula/function would be specific to just this subset of rows (rows 12-15).
I get close, but can't seem to nail this simple formula/function down. I am unable to download any sheets due to my work's firewall.
I am looking to auto generate a roster/schedule. I have a spreadsheet with shifts for each weekday that I need to populate every week with names to pick from a drop down list. the drop down list is made using data validation and looks at a dynamic named range to allow me to select only the people who are available to work a certain shift.
I have 3 dropdown boxes I created using the control toolbox which pull corresponding information from 3 different columns. I would like to be able to format them so that upon data entry in the first dropdown box, the subsequent two boxes auto populate with the corresponding data. Currently I have to select the information for each dropdown box manually.
If a user selects certain options from a drop down list created by cell verification (from list), is it possible to display an input box and have the resulting input populate on another worksheet in the workbook? I have an attendance template I'm working with and if a user selects OT (Over Time) then a input box is displayed prompting for how many hours. The overtime is then tracked on another worksheet.
auto fill the rows after selecting a particular option from a drop down list. For Ex., In Drop down list we have Cool drinks and Ice cream as two options. If i select Cool drinks the respective columns should be filled with brands like, Coke, 7 Up etc...
I have two worksheet. One worksheet is a form where in the Field Door No. should be a dropdown list. The list will be retrieve from worksheet Source. Now upon selecting a specific Door No. it should also autopopulate the respective Type, Brand, Serial No., and Type.
First thing i need to know is what should i do on Cell B1 worksheet Form for it to be a drop down list retrieving the Column A on worksheet Source.
Second, upon selecting for example ATC0009 on the drop-down, it should auto-populate like these
Door No. ATC0009 Type AT Crane Brand A Serial 43679 Type Crane
I'm trying to make a spreadsheet that can be used to easily build a collective list of steps, for a user to read and follow line-by-line.
I want a source sheet of "steps" that I can change over time, and the resulting tabs that reference the source sheet get updated/populated automatically.
I've pieced together some VBA code from other sources, which kind of does what I want it to:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Row > 1 And Target.Column = 1 Then Dim SourceSheet As Worksheet Set SourceSheet = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Steps") Dim TargetSheet As Worksheet Set TargetSheet = Target.Worksheet Dim c As Integer Dim Source As Range
But there are some problems:
1) The data auto-populates into a row. It would read better if each step was in the same column, meaning rows would need to be automatically added upon selecting something from the drop-down list. The number of rows that need to be added vary based on the number of steps in the source sheet, for the selection made from the drop-down list.
2) If you make a change to the source sheet, my goal is to have the other sheets referencing the source sheet's lists of steps update automatically, so you only need to update the steps in one spot and everything you've built from them gets updated instantly. Currently, you must select a different choice from the drop-down list, and then change it back, before it populates the "new" steps from the source sheet.
This is my first time using VBA.
What I have so far is attached: testAutoPopulate.xlsm
I want to know how to take a field with a value and apply it to fields with range. In this case if i had a value of 15 it would enter that value in this field below. I tried an IF formula but it did not work.
range 31 to 40 range 21 to 30 range 11 to 20 15 range 1 to 10
I have a dashboard that uses three pivots based off of a single data source. Each of the pivots is designed to work off of their own drop down list.
the first drop down list allows the user to select a lease date. The associated pivot will update with all servers assocated with that lease date.
the second drop down list allows the user to select a server. This list is limited by the lease date selected in the first drop down. The associated pivot will update with the partition information for the server selected in the drop down.
the third drop down list allows the user to select a partition. This list is limited by the server selected in the second drop down. The associated pivot will update with the detailed partition data for the partition selected in the drop down.
All of the above works, the issue is that when a new lease date is selected in the first drop down list, the current entries for the second and third drop down list are still reflecting the old lease date information. When you click the drop down the correct data is there, it is just not automatically populated.
Is there a way that when the user selects a new lease date in drop down one, the first server in the new list is automatically populated in the second drop down as well as the first partition in the third drop down?
if is possible to make some kind of ComboBox without filters, I mean that let you choose different items at the same time. I do not know if some of you have seen some "ComboBox" that has all the options in one side and next to this window it has a blank window that when you double click the word that was in the other wondow passes to the other window telling you that you have chossen this item.
I need to populate a textbox based off 2 combobox selections. My first combobox selects the worksheet. "08BOG, 09BOG, 10BOG...15BOG" My second combobox lists majors based off of the worksheet selected in combobox 1. I need my textbox to populate the value 18 rows over the selected worksheet and the selected row.
Currently I have something like this:
But obviously this is all wrong because it is only referencing one sheet instead of the selected sheet in the combobox.
My table contains 6 columns, one of which is 'season'.
I have a form containing a combobox and a listbox. The combobox has 4 options (spring summer autumn and winter). I want the listbox to be populated with all rows containing the selected season. For example, if i select "spring", the listbox will show all rows in the table that have spring in the season column.
I realise this is a very remedial question but i am very new to VBA and programming in general!
