Automatically Fill Data Depending On Choice From Drop-down Menu

Dec 28, 2007

I have three lists in the first sheet 'Food', 'Quantity', 'Points Value'
Each food (i.e. tuna, pasta, anchovies) has a quantity (i.e. 40g) and a points value (i.e. '50'). The first list ('Food') has been copied as a drop down list in the second sheet. When selecting a food, I would like the cells 'quantity' and 'points value' to pre-fill - taking the data from the first sheet.

i.e. if say Anchovies has the quantity value '30g' and Points Value '2' on the first sheet, then in the second sheet if anchovies was selected from the drop-down menu, these values would add themselves. how to do this? I have attached a sample file shwoing what I want to do.

Show A Certain Cell Depending On Data From A Drop Down Menu.

Jan 2, 2009

I have created a color coded calendar on a spreadsheet for work that shows when a book will be published depending on when it comes into our warehouse, this is on sheet one.

I would like on sheet two to have some kind of filter or statement that would eliminate the need to look at the calendar, I.E. the user would just have to type in the date or select the date from a list and excel would show you what day the book would publish on using the data from sheet one.

I can imagine that this is hard to picture so i have attached the file as well.

Lookup Data For Drop Down List Choice & Show Blank If No Choice

Feb 6, 2008

I currently have a drop down menu in one of my worksheets, in which I have several different text values entered. What I would like to do is link each of those text values to a numerical value, which would be entered in to another cell. So if I select "Option A" from my drop down list, and Option A is equal to 200, I want "200" to show up in another cell. If I select "Option B" from my drop down list, and Option B is equal to 400, I want "400 to show up in that same other cell.

Auto Fill Based On Drop-down Choice

Dec 13, 2007

I'm working on a workbook that already exists and that contains multiple worksheets (A,B,C,D,...), each with specific info (each row consists of an item name (item 1, item 2, item3,...)and all characteristics of this item).

We now want to add a help page for each worksheet :
A => A help
B => B help
...

So for each item (=row) in sheet A, there should also be an according row with additional info in A help

First, I used static hyperlinks to switch from the item in A to the corresponding help in A help. However the item list can be extended in the future (meaning rows inserted) and this will cause these links to fail. Therefore I switched to dynamic hyperlinks by inserting names (in stead of the original cell names) for each item in both A and A help. This involves a lot of work since you have to give all the involved cells a unique name and you have to refer to this unique name when you set up the hyperlink.

Fill Table Based On An Drop-Down Choice In 1st Column

May 9, 2009

I'm working on making a spreadsheet that allows me to select an item type from a dropdown list (through validation) and then would copy in a range of values from another worksheet based on my dropdown selection.

The set-up: I am primarily concerned with two sheets in my workbook, BiS and Weights. I have a database of items and their associated values listed in Weights. I have already managed to get dropdown lists of my specific item types using named lists and have put that in the BiS worksheet.

What I would like to do is have the values in the Weights worksheet copied over in the same order and number of cells based on what item I select from the dropdown list.

Formula In A Cell Value Changes Depending On Drop Down Menu Selection

Aug 19, 2014

I have created a drop-down menu combobox of districts and depending on your choice of districts the list of Health Centers in each district changes. What I want to do is to protect the contents of the cells that contain the health centers. The problem is that when I lock the cells and I choose a district, the Health Center cells cannot change because the cells are locked. Is there anyway around it?

I have attached the sample (Please look at sheet 2. The column that I want to block is the column FOSA)

Automatically Trigger Formatting Code On Drop Down Choice

Apr 6, 2008

I'm building a Excel 2003 workbook that needs more than 3 conditional formats. I've tried the code given in the FAQ: Get Around Excels 3 Criteria Limit in Conditional Formatting but this only works on cells being modified directly. I've also tried the code in the post: VBA Conditional Formatting - Refresh when data changes but neither does the job I need.

I'm using a Format Control to present the user with a list of choices. When the control changes the target cell I want to apply a conditional format to that cell. This image shows the form. When the Format Control selection (in B2) is changed I want to apply conditional formating to the target cell (A2).

There will be up to 10 choices and therefore conditions.

Auto Fill Cells Depending On Drop Down List Selection

Sep 22, 2008

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.

Select An Item From Drop Down List And Automatically Fill A Number Of Cells

Nov 15, 2008

I am kind of new to Excel programming and would like to know if there is a solution to my problem. What I need is to have a dropdown list (I know how to make this) then select an item from the drop down, then based on the name i select, Excel automatically fill up the rest of the cells.

For example, from the drop down list I select the company name then Excel automatically type the address, phone number, Fax number and the contact name of the company for me in corresponding cells. Is there a way to do this?

Populate Drop-Down Based On Another Drop-Down Choice

Oct 25, 2006

Here is what I'm trying to do:

I have 4 sheets:
1 called main
1 called states
1 called counties
1 called people

On "main" I have 1 drop down box and 1 cell:

the drop down lists the states from "states" sheet
the cell, which i would like to have as a drop down is supposed to be listing the counties in the state selected from the 1st drop down. right now it is setting the value to TRUE for testing purposes.

then when the county is selected, it will display the people in that county listed in "people". So far I can only get the 1st drop down to list the states. that's the easy part. i need to getting the counties to list in another drop down based on what state is selected.

Data Validation / Drop Menu With Hyperlinks?

Sep 20, 2007

I need to put together a report for work.

What I want to do is this:

Create a drop menu. The options within the drop menu to be links (either to another Excel worksheet within the same workbook, or a WORD document).

I know how to create a drop menu, that is simple, but am not sure how to do the hyperlink aspect.

It seems when I actually insert>hyperlink onto the actual text of the drop menu (on the other sheet where i created the drop menu data), the hyperlink is not active in the actual drop menu itself.

Data Validation / Drop Down Menu With Paste Special

Jan 18, 2009

I know how to use the copy and paste special to copy a formula from one row down many rows in that same column. When I do this the formula will automatically change by 1 number {such as =IF(ISBLANK(C5),"",VLOOKUP($C5,Sheet1! $B$3:D4891,3,FALSE)) then when I click on copy and pasted special each following row will change by one number ---- to =IF(ISBLANK(C6),"",VLOOKUP($C6,Sheet1!$B$3:D4892,3,FALSE))

Can this also be done if the row you want to copy and paste is a row with data validation / a drop down menu? I simply tried using the same process for a row that has data validation the row with the validation has for the source =INDIRECT($B$5)

Is there a way to copy this down about 20 rows and have the ($B$5) change in each row by one number {such as ($B$6 THEN $B$7, ETC...) Or do I just have to do the whole data validation process for each row?

Fill Table Using Drop Down List Data Selections

Jul 10, 2009

I have a couple of drop down lists of data created from lists as well as fields next to it.

What I want it to do is take that data, which is name, start time, end time, days worked, queue (or work type), and fill the table next to it which is just a 30 minute by 30 minute schedule sheet with days of week 1 and week 2 on top.

I figure it would be easier to have a GO button to do this.

I will attach an example of what I mean, but please, if you guys find that there is an easier way to do this, just let me know, I feel this might involve some code/macros instead of excel functions

Lookup Dynamic Drop Down Choice

Aug 9, 2007

getting a macro to dynamically assign a drop down box to a list of numbers?

Specifically, I have a list of numbers in column A, and I would like to dynamically (because the size of the column differs every time) add drop down boxes in column B so that a user may select different values in column A, simply by changing the drop down box value to "Selected"

This would this make it easier for collect all the "Selected" values and perform further analyses upon them.

Preventing The Same Choice Being Made In Two Drop-downs

Dec 11, 2008

I am building a template in Excel and I want an error message (or any message) to appear to the user if they select from a static drop-down the same option in column I as in column J (i.e. they have to pick something different in each case).

Issue is I can't exclude any options from the second validation because, essentially, it's the same list. So if, on one row, a person picks "Bill" in column I, they can't pick "Bill" in column J. However, if they have picked "James" in column I, they can pick "Bill" in column J.

Don't know if this is well explained enough but would appreciate any tips on this - I've tried messing about with validation, conditional formatting, putting an IF statement in the next column and so forth but I haven't found a method that isn't convaluted and easy for the user of the template...
