Autocomplete Validation List

Oct 25, 2007

I been trying to teach him but its hard work as he is old and it just doesnt sink in..and he wishes to stay in control of the work he is done.. so out goes out vba...
i trying to help input on the sheet with data validation and trying to get it working with the autocomplete work around. i took this from a page of this site...

List is Dynamic and/or Resides on Another Worksheet. Lets say your list is on Sheet2 and you wish to use the Validation List with AutoComplete on Sheet1. On Sheet1 A1 Enter =Sheet2!A1 and copy down including as many spare rows as needed (say 300 rows total). Hide these rows and use this formula in the Refers to: for a dynamic named range called MyList: =OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$1,0,0,MATCH("*",Sheet1!$A$1:$A$300,-1),1)...............

Autocomplete With Validation List Macro

Mar 24, 2008

I have seen this problem mentioned on other threads, but, didn't see the resolution. I got the below code from contextures.com's sample spreadsheet DataValComboBoxSheet.xls. When I press the tab or enter key, Excel crashes. This macro does exactly what I need which is to allow the user to autocomplete from a long list of validation values that come from another spreadsheet. The code causing the crash is the Select Case KeyCode statement when the keycode is 9 or 13. I am running Excel 2002.

Option Explicit

Private Sub TempCombo_KeyDown(ByVal _
KeyCode As MSForms.ReturnInteger, _
ByVal Shift As Integer)
'Hide combo box and move to next cell on Enter and Tab
Select Case KeyCode
Case 9
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Activate
Case 13
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Activate
Case Else
'do nothing
End Select ....................................

Data Validation Autocomplete Via Combobox Modification

Jun 7, 2007

I'm using a script that when you double click on a cell containing Data Validation > List it changes to a combo box that has an autocomplete/increased columns view...It's working great, however there are two small modifications I would love to do and am not having much success with. Currently, you double click the cell w/the Data Validation > List in it, it then changes to a combo box and you can auto complete using the keyboard or select the dropdown and choose from an increased list. However, I would like to be able to simply single click on the cell, have it change to the combo box and auto expand the list if possible.

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, _
Cancel As Boolean)
Dim str As String
Dim cboTemp As OLEObject
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim wsList As Worksheet
Set ws = ActiveSheet
Set wsList = Sheets("Rep Assist Report")
Cancel = True
Set cboTemp = ws.OLEObjects("RepName1")
On Error Resume Next
With cboTemp
.ListFillRange = ""
.LinkedCell = ""
.Visible = False
End With
On Error Goto errHandler
If Target.Validation.Type = 3 Then.....................

Excel 2007 :: Autocomplete In Dropdown List

Feb 23, 2012

I have cells containing large drop down lists (offering many possible entries). Is it possible to get excel to "jump" in the list or complete the entry automatically? If i start typing "aut", it should the drop down entry "automation". For your information, I just use Define Name and Data Validation to create the drop down list. Is it must be using VBA code or I just can use Define Name and Data Validation which has been I created?

AutoComplete Entry In Text Box Or Drop Down List

Jun 1, 2009

I currently have showing 800 suppliers in a List Box... sadly when having to search for a sepcific supplier this seems to be very fustrating and time comsuming for people in the Company.

I have tried the method of copying all of the Supplier above the list, so it can do an AutoComplete filter, but the data needs to be exact.

What i would really like is if i was to type the letter "V" in the cell, it would be able to provide me with a list of the "V" suppliers in a list.

Validation List To Depend On Another Validation List

Sep 9, 2006

I'm not sure if its possible to do what I want. I'm trying to do it without VBA as my users might have a high macro security setting.

I have a validation dropdown in A2 where they pick 'yes' or 'no' for FLSA. I would like B2 to be a dropdown (validation, listbox, whatever) that would change based upon A2. If A2 is 'yes' I want to use the data in A5:B7 and if its 'no' use A10:B12. Ultimately I want B2 to equal one of the numbers from A5 - A7 or A10 - A12. However when they click on the drop down they see the combo of column A and columb B as column A has no meaning for the user.

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

Jun 15, 2007

I'm trying to use data validation to restrict the user to only selecting values in a list which I create. Right now, the list is a named range. I'd like to get rid of the range and just use a named list. I create a name using the following as my list.

Insert > Name > Create
Name: Fruit

Refers to:
banana,apple,orange

When I try to use the name Fruit in my data validation, I get the message "The List Source must be a delimited list, or a reference to single row or column." I thought my name "fruit" was a delimited list.

Created Validation Drop-down List - Can I Make The Row Now Change To The Colour That Relates To The Selection From The List

Jan 13, 2009

I am trying to create a fairly simple spreadsheet with about 8 columns and about 400 rows. One of the columns features a drop-down list with about 8 or 9 different options. Dependant on which option is selected, i would like the entire row to change colour with that option.

For example:
FAILED - whole row changes red
SUCCESSFUL - row has no fill
Tested - row changes to orange

etc.

Is this possible within Excel 2003?

Excel 2007 :: Data Validation List Depend On Another DV List

Apr 29, 2012

I have a List of Different Fruits in Cells A1 to A5

Apple
Banana
Orange
Strawberry
Cherry

And I use data validation list in 5 different cells from Cells C1 to C5 then in every cell the list will show all the fruits,

But I want that if I select Any Fruit in cell C1 that should not be included in the remaining 4 cells, and the fruits selected in Cells C1 and Cell C2 should not be included in the remaining 3 cells and so on....

I Used the formula

=IF(C1=A1,OFFSET(A2,,,COUNTA($A$2:$A$5),1),0)

But this works fine if I select Apple in the Cell C1, then the List of C2 Shows all Fruits other than Apple, But if in Cell C1 I select any fruit other than Apple it does not work... (Using Excel2007 & Win XP)

Validation List Based On Named Range Not Restricted To List

Dec 15, 2007

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.

Validation List: Wide As Widest List Item

Oct 28, 2006

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:

http://www.contextures.com/xlDataVal10.html

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.

Using Autocomplete From Another Sheet?

Sep 9, 2013

I'd like autocomplete to work in sheet 1 (Cell B4, if it matters) checking from data in sheet 3.

It's for addresses. I want to be able to access them quickly from the first few letters then use VLOOKUP to fill in the rest (the VLOOKUP formula is done and working).

Autocomplete In A Textbox Using VBA?

Dec 9, 2002

I have an excel file with a large amount of data. It is used to keep track of our firms past and current projects (on each row). The columns include data such as the name of the client and the city in which the project is located.

The excel sheet is set up with filters, so that it is easy to check which jobs we've done for client 'X', for instance, or the jobs initiated since a certain date.

In order for the filters to work properly, we need to make sure that, as an example, teh client name has to always be inputed in the same manner. Using excel's autocomplete option works well for this.

New projects are added to the top of the list. So, a new row has to be added each time a new project is inputted.

In order to automate things, I've made a userform with text/comboboxes in which the data for the new project is inputted and then placed onto the sheet once the userform is closed.

Is there a way to have the text/comboboxes on the userform use the autocomplete feature? As an example, if I'm entering the client name for a new project, is there a way to have the textbox autocomplete the client name by checking in the client column on the sheet? And, if there is more than one client starting with the same letter, is it possible to make a listbox appear showing all the clients beginning with that letter so the correct one can be picked?

Since the list of clients will always be changing, I don't want to code a certain set list, or have to continually update a list. (besides, the amount of coding would be huge considering the number of clients I would have to give it's own .AddItem)

Autocomplete / Autofilter On A Cell

Apr 14, 2014

I need to perform autocomplete on a cell as I type but I want it to activate only after I'm done typing in numbers.

For instance, the data I need to type in is an address, say '60 Yonge Street'. So, after I type in '60' I would like the autocomplete to be performed on the Street Names. Also, in column A in another sheet I have a list of all the street names.

I've used ComboBox, Data Validation and OnKey to do this before on Street Names only, but now I need to do it after I type the Street Number in.

AutoComplete With Values From Another Worksheet Without Using Combobox

Aug 15, 2014

I have this long list of data (company name, company ID and OIC) on sheet 1.

Then on sheet 2, user will key in the company name manually then the company ID and OIC name will auto-populate (i did the match index already on this one) before filling in the other cells.

How do I make the cell to auto-complete the company name by using the list of data in the other sheet? Do I use the combo box? If I use the combo box, will it affect the match index formula i created for company ID and OIC?
