Cell Validation :: NOT EQUAL BLANKAug 26, 2009
Would like to know how to place validation on cell a2 to NOT EQUAL BLANK.
Would like to know how to place validation on cell a2 to NOT EQUAL BLANK.
how to make the data look like a table with three columns. Other than the date, it is space delimited. I have a tracking spreadsheet where Column A is populated with dates for the year. Column C contains daily values.
I don't always start entering daily values on the first day of the year, e.g., this year the first value in Column C corresponds to March 9. All values in Column C are contiguous - there are no blank cells until the value in Column A is greater than today's date code. I would like to use a formula (rather than VBA) to look down Column C and find the first non-blank entry where the value in Column A is less than or equal to today(). In this case, the formula should return the value for March 9, 2008.

I have a tracking sheet... in that I got in column C say "priority" there I have a drop down list date say P1, P2, P3
Now I need to restrict that if a user enters a data in the C2 and trying to enter a data in D2 leaving the drop down list data blank in C2. A error message saying "pls select priority forst" etc...
I got the following solution from moderator:
You can apply the Custom Data Validation formula =LEN(C2)>0 to D2, making sure that Ignore Blank is unchecked.
It works but, when I enter something in that cell it gives the error message and when I click OK or Cancel it just ignore the conditions and leave the data what ever I entered and moves further.
I would like to validate data but cant quite get the formula right. I have a cell (say F7) that cannot be blank if (say E7) another cell equals a text value (say "S"). Anyone have an idea? I am stumped at this seemingly easy task. I am applying the validation below to F7.
I forgot to add the valid combinations:
E7 = P and F7 = Entry: OK
E7 = P and F7 = Blank: OK
E7 = S and F7 = Entry: OK
E7 = S and F7 = Blank: INVALID
I have tried the formula: =IF(AND(E7="S",ISBLANK(F7)),1,0) within the validation window but blank entries are still allowed. I put this code in adjacent cells as a formula, the values are correct either 1 or 0.
I have a formula that I am trying to get the IFERROR to equal blank.
So if it's an error, I just want the cell to be blank.
I have a column, that have different values in each cell.
I am trying to get the count if the value is NOT equal to Closed and or BLANK
My formula : =COUNTIFS(O7:O827, "<>Closed", O7:O827, "<>""")
still not working, it counts the blank cells !
I have a code which will delete all rows where the value in column C is blank. However my formula is column C is the following:
Is there a way to change this formula so that if a value is not returned, I get a blank cell?
How to correct my formula because it does not work?
Here the formula: =COUNTIFS(Data!C2:C24005,A17,Data!M2:M11149,"<=0")
I need to insert the formula in column C (Findings tab) which counts the rows in Column M (tab named "Data") that equal A17 (Column A in "Findings" tab) and which are less or equal zero. In addition if I drag the formula down I want to only the values be entered in highlighted in blue cells in column C (SKUs With Zero Sales in "Findings" tab) and empty cells in not highlighted cells. I attached images of these two tabs: Data and Findings.
I have a formula in Excel2003 that is working fine except for when D12 is blank. When D12 is blank I want the result to equal either zero or blank.
i have two sheets in workbook named as shtbiz,shtbiz1.
so column A of my shtbiz1 sheet i have 100 datas.the by using following code i can fill the datas of shtbiz1 in column A of shtbiz.
strValItems = ""
Set rngValList = ShtBiz1.Range("A6", Range("A10000").End(xlUp))
For Each rngValCell In rngValList
If Len(strValItems) > 0 Then strValItems = strValItems & ","
strValItems = strValItems & rngValCell.Value
.Validation.Add xlValidateList, , , strValItems
so my problem is i need to add blank value in the top of the list .ie first value should be blank then other values which read from shtbiz1 has to be followed.
On A3: D10 I have information on C1 a have date and E3:E10 I will input date
i.e. If the date entered in E3 is the same as or larger than the date on C1 then Blank the entire line A3: D3
I have a spreadsheet with some cells setup with a drop-down list containing Y, N or N/A
This is being used on a TabletPC but if I make a mistake or need to change back to a blank field I have to invoke the soft keyboard, activate the cell and hit backspace then close the soft keyboard - quite a long-winded procedure just to change an incorrect choice!
What I would like to do is add a blank to the list so if I have to revert back to a blank I can just use the stylus to choose a blank from the chooser list.
How do I add the option of inputting a blank from the Data Validation List bearing in mind I am using the Data Validation Source box for entering my choices directly and not specifying a range of cells?
I have tried adding "" and even a space to no avail.
I have a list in one worksheet which comes from "=SALESMEN!$D:$D" but the list is extremely long with blank values. How can I make the list only show values from column D which are non-blank?
Currently the list goes up to 30, however I want to use all of Column D from the SALESMEN worksheet, that way if I add to it, the names will automatically be added to the list in the other sheet.
I am using Data Validation and I don't want the user to go past a cell without putting in an entry. When I leave the box (ignore blank) unchecked it doesn't do anything after I have protected the document.
I am currently working in an excel file for which i want to create a macro. I am using colomn F as the base from which it should be determined whether a row should be copied. In colomn F the user can select three options through data validation. If 'completed' is selected, the whole row should be copied to the second sheet, and each copied row should be pasted to the next empty row. The data on the source sheet starts at row 11 and should be copied to sheet 2, starting from row 11 as well.View 5 Replies View Related
I have a list that has blank rows mixed in. I'd like to return a list without those blank rows to be used as a dropdown menu for a budgeting tool.
I tried using the offset formula from the link below but this just cut off my list after the first blank rows showed up.
My current list looks something like this:
5000-01 - Hourly
Got a table where I've placed Data validation - List on them.
Placed a macro on a button so that the data on the table where the validation list is placed is transfered to another sheet (same workbook).
What I need is a to modify the macro assigned to the button so that when the button is clicked to activate the macro:
a.) Can identify if there are any blanks on specified cells with validation list
b.) Stops the macro from copying the fields to the other sheet
c.) Alert the user of the blanks (an alert stating there is a blank would suffice)
d.) Alert should preferably be similar to a Stop alert from Data Validation.
Can anyone help? Been reading through several threads but don't seem to find anything that could help me - tried reading a Visual basic thread and now i've got a headache....
I'm having trouble with a small vba macro. At the end of the macro I test to see if two variables are equal and then print out true or false. However, for some reason even though the variables are equal vba is not treating them that way. I have put the values that represent the variables on a spreadsheet and used the if(x1=x2) formula and it says it is true, also, when I debug the macro and watch the values when it comes to test the logical expression the numbers are the same. I don't understand why vba does not say that the two variables are equal. I have attached a screenshot of the breakpoint where I double check the values are equal.View 2 Replies View Related
I am trying to write a macro that will make the bottom cell in a column equal to the top cell. The top cell will not always be in the same row and there won't always be the same number of cells.View 1 Replies View Related
I have a sheet in Excel 2004 for Mac that is a patient list with over 2000 patients. I need a rule that will compare values (patient IDs and responsible party ID) in two adjacent cells, if the values are different, to delete the entire row. The goal is to get rid of patients (rows) that are not the responsible party (responsible party ID).View 3 Replies View Related
I'm trying to figure a to enforce dual data validation on a single cell. That is, I need to restrict the user to entering only a decimal value, only if a particular other cell (say A2) is blank. To put it another way, if A2 is blank, the user can enter a decimal value, but if A2 is not blank, the user cannot enter anything. I can use Data Validation to enforce either the decimal restriction or the ISBLANK, but I'm not sure how to make them work together.View 2 Replies View Related
I have two cells, both of which have drop down lists for options 'a' & 'b'. When one equals 'a' the other should be restricted into only saying 'b' and vice versa. I would also like the user to be reminded that he can only select 'a' once from the two menus. Ideally I would like to do this in a formula rather than VBA?View 2 Replies View Related
Simply need a cell to count another cell is equal to certain value.
For example if B3 has a value of 6 then I need J3 to equal 1 or if B3 is equal to 3 than I need G3 to equal one. I tried the the COUNTIF but I am sure i am using it incorrectly.
I would like to create a VBA code where it will delete the entire column if the cell value is equal to value in D2
Dim rng As Range, cell As Range, del As Range
Set rng = Intersect(Range("G2:S43"), ActiveSheet.UsedRange)
For Each cell In rng
If (cell.Value) = D2 _
If del Is Nothing Then
Set del = cell
Else: Set del = Union(del, cell)
On Error Resume Next
But I think this line is wrong but I am not sure how to fix it - If (cell.Value) = D2 _
I have a spreadsheet with some cells which return values using INDEX and MATCH to bring back the entire details of a person based on there membership number. However I require the comments to be attached with the returned values. The comments have there image in, rather than just text.
I have found some answers with vba, which do the process, however you had to manually enter the cell, from which the comment was to be copied from, into a pop up box. This involved finding the box myself to then select the box to take the comment from. In doing this I had found and read the comment, which is the is the process I'm trying to bypass.
I've been pounding away at a project for two days trying to determine a way to identify a solution, to no avail.
Here is some experimental code. Under the assumption that in Column "A", every fifth line contains some text (a, b, c, etc) I want to place a function in column B that would identify the closest occupied cell above and to the left of the cell containing the function. The sub achieves this, but the function has a problem because of the Activecell line. Is there a way to identify the location of the cell containing the function to act as a reference point for the range?
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
x = ActiveCell.Address
last_heading = ActiveCell.Text
Do Until last_heading ""
last_heading = ActiveCell.Text
Function cathead(Optional reference)
I need to identify rows where the contents of a given cell are equivalent to the cell below. I have managed to get this working based on iterating through the cells and selecting them both for cutting.
However it doesn't work effectively: It seems to be leaving blank lines in the original sheet and further fails after the first execution. I would be grateful for any suggestions on a good method to perform the following operations:
(1)to compare the cell with the cell below
I have used
If cell = cell.Offset(1, 0) Then
(2)to act on the rows for the two connected rows
' Loop through rows
Dim TheExtract As String
Dim cell As Range
'Application. ScreenUpdating = False
For Each cell In Worksheets("Sheet 1"). _
Range("A1", Worksheets("Sheet 1").Range("A65536").End(xlUp))
TheExtract = cell
If cell = cell.Offset(1, 0) Then
'Application.ScreenUpdating = True
I can't modify my formula to leave blank cells blank when dragging it down, Also, I've got two formulas that i need to combine. Please view the comments I've put in cells E4, F2,F3,H2 and I2 to understand clearly what am seeking. See the attached worksheet.View 8 Replies View Related
I would like to program an Input Box that looks at the cell next to it to see if there is a value equal to zero in it. If there is a Zero in the cell an Input Box will popup and ask "what was the result". It would keep going down the column until there are no more values in column A.
In this example the Input Box would popup for the second line and the third line and then populate the values entered into C2 and C3 accordingly.
Col A Col B Col C
1 1 52
I have 2 worksheets, and I was wondering if I can have a cell from Sheet2 equal to the subtotal of the Autofilter criteria of a column in Sheet1.
I do have something working with macros but it takes a long time. This would make things a lot easier.
I am trying to write a macro which will hide and show row 15 based on the value which gets input into E9.
Part 1 here is working and when E9 = "DP Deliverable" row 15 does appear, but on the converse, when I input something besided DP Deliverable into E9, row 15 does not hude.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "$E$9" Then
If Range("E9").Value = "DP Deliverable" Then
If Target.Address = "$E$9" Then
If Range("E9").Value "DP Deliverable" Then
I currently, manually create my production work orders using excel (in-house ERP system not good enough).
Rather than manually type in the names of products to be produced, I would like to have the number 1 = a production item and 2 = another and so on.....So basically when I type 1 in a cell it will automatically display a production item.
I imagine this to be a process where i would type all the names of my production items in individual cells, then create a formula to make 1 = a specific cell, 2, 3, 4, etc.....
if a certain cell does not equal zero i want a macro to run. But i'm having trouble getting the logic right. here's what i have so far
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Active.Selection 0 Then
ElseIf Active.Select = 0 Then
The code below is an attempt to delete all rows where the cell in column A is not equal to the value of B1. B1 is text if that somehow makes a difference.
Dim n As Long, lastrow As Long
lastrow = Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row
For n = lastrow To 1 Step -1
If Cells(n, 1) <> Range("B1") Then Cells(n, 1).EntireRow.Delete
Do I need to specify that B1 will always be the cell to reference (ie $B$1). Edit: Just had an epiphany, I also need it to stop after Row 3. I have some headers and such that I don't want removed.
i need a bit of code that will display the values of selected cells in a message Box D4 & D10 & D185 is this possibleView 9 Replies View Related
I have one column that contains an If statement formula and would like the next column to then work off of the first column (i.e. if that 1st column returns a value then then adjacent column uses that result).
What is happening now is that it is returning #value (because I guess technically the cell isn't blank?)
I am looking for an IF statement that would leave a balance cell blank if both the revenue and expense cells are blank, otherwise a formula would be calculated.View 8 Replies View Related
I presume this is fairly simple to do, since it's certainly easy enough to do manually by filling in a couple of rows and dragging them down, but I need it to be performed in a macro that I can run before other macros run.
What I need specifically is for the macro to go to G1 and insert the number .01... Then go to G2 and insert .02... Then G3 and insert .03... And repeat this until it finds the first non-blank cell ( row number this occurs at varies), at which point it ends and does nothing to that populated cell or any other cell in the column thereafter (including other blanks farther down).
This all needs to be done in Arial, 10pt, white.
I have a list that looks something like this:
Row 4 Item 1
Row 5 Item 2
Row 8 Item 3
Row 10 Item 4
Row 14 Item 5
The range of cells in column B containing the items has a name "ColStreams"
I need to go through the list, filling in each blank cells with the value contained in the first non-blank cell above it - so, in this case, rows 6 and 7 would contain "Item 2", row 9 would contain "Item 3", rows 11-13 would contain "Item 4" and so on.
code that will go to a cell in Sheet1 column A that has the same or closest value to cell B11 in another workbook. The number values in the column are to three decimal places and the run in order down the column from lowest value to hightest.View 6 Replies View Related
I have a monthly forecast document that is updated by an operator monthly. At the end of the month, the operator presses a "Copy Accrual" macro that copies accruals for the month and stores them on a seperate tab. After sending the document back to the Finance team (necessary step due to software complications), Finance will send the operator back an updated file at beginning of next month. The operator than presses a "Paste Reversal" macro that is supposed to input the negative of the accrual stored in the seperate tab. The problem is that it is posting as the same value (not negative of value). I tried recording a Macro to fix this, but it did not work. An example of the code that came up with is:
Range("B9").FormulaR1C1 = "=-Accruals!RC[-4]"
Thoughts on what to do? I think the two things that are throwing me off is the negative, and moving between the different sheets.
