Check If Cell Has Data Validation With VBA

How can I check if a cell has data validation with a VBA procedure?

I want to do this because I am using a procedure to add data validation and I get an error if the cell already contains data validation.


Print Validation Check

Mar 21, 2007

I need to disable the normal Print Icon and Print function from the menu bar in excel. I did find an article for this but it disabled the function for all excel spreadsheets! How can I overcome this so that its only relevant to this particular worksheet.

The reason I want to disable the normal printing functionality is so that the end user clicks my own print button which in turn before printing will check if 2 cells in my worksheet match. If they do not match a message will appear and they won't be able to print the worksheet(in essence a certificate). So I need to validate cell a1 against cell a2

Sequential Check Digit Validation

Nov 14, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that pulls in a log file after running a macro with 100000eight digit numbers which may or may not have a record in the system. These numbers are produced by using any seven digits and adding a check digit at the end for an eight digit number using the mod function specifically Mod7...=MOD(A1,7) , for example, if cell A1 has 1234567 the mod7 function will produce the check digit 5 then concatenating for the eight digit number 12345675. the next number will be produced by adding 1 to the end of the 7 digit number 1234567+1=1234568 then concatenating again the number with the check digit 6, 12345686. this would be sequential order.

my spreadsheet gets all the eight digit numbers with no record and sorts them in MOD7 sequential order in one column. since the spreadsheet ignores the eight digit numbers with records. my compiled list of numbers have non sequential numbers in the list.

i need a way in VB to loop through 100000 lines (column A) and find the first and last number of a MOD7 sequential range and place the first number in (column B) and the last in (column C).

I have figured a way to do this in a spreadsheet but it takes too many functions and calculations in 100000 lines so the spreadsheet takes too long to open and sometimes crashes!

Vehicle Number Plate Validation Check

Jun 11, 2014

I'm looking for a function which will check if the cell value is a valid UK registration number plate format.

True if it is, False if it isn't.

I've tried myself and had a look around but am unable to find a solution to my problem.

If also possible, if false, to make to necessary amendments to make it a valid If some lower case values, make them upper case, if there is a space entered, remove it, if a O is entered instead of a 0, correct it and show the corrected value when the function is run. For all that it can't do that with, then leave as False.

I understand the second part may not be possible, just identifying whether or not the value is a valid format. I have something similar which does this for UK postcodes, but am hitting a brick wall trying to do the same for UK registration number plates.

Macro To Check Validation Dropdowns Left Blank

Oct 27, 2008

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....

VBA Check If A Cell Is Empty - Move 7 Cells Over And Check Again (Loop)

Aug 10, 2012

I have data in Row 53 that spans 7 columns, but stays in the same row. I want to design a loop to select every 7th cell in that row and check if it is empty. If not, add onto a "counter" then display the final number of occupied cells (the value of the counter) at the end. This is what I have so far, but I get all sorts of errors.

Nested Data Validation: Figure A To Enforce Dual Data Validation On A Single Cell?

Aug 19, 2009

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.

Macro To Force Format And Check Barcode Check Digit

Nov 27, 2009

My company uses 4 types of barcodes 8, 12, 13, & 14 number barcodes for our products my problem is that I can't figure out how to force the barcode to format properly no matter how somebody enters it if they don't use spaces or put them in the wrong spots, I can't use custom formats because there is 4 different layouts

8 digit should be "#### ####"
12 digit should be "###### ######"
13 digit should be "# ###### ######"
14 digit should be "# ## ##### ######"

these barcodes are in columns L, M, & N also right now 'm using a formula in another cell to verify the barcodes by calculating the check digit and comparing it to the check digit typed the formula i'm using is

Check On Cell Contents And If Match Change Another Cell

May 29, 2012

I want to check the contents of all the cells in S Column to see if it equals "Process Recover/Rebill"

If True, then Change corresponding cell in C Column to "Manual Correction"

I have this VBA and it doesn't look like anything is processing. It appears that I must have something missing in the If line..message about missing.

(tot_new is the number of rows of data) I begin in the 3rd row.

For Counter = 3 To tot_new
If Range("S" & Counter & ").Value = "Process Recovery/Rebill" Then
Range("T" & Counter & ").Value = "Manual Correction"
End If

Check Each Cell In Range For Value & Put Text In Offset Cell

Jun 7, 2008

I'm trying to look at a value in one column (Column A) and if it matches a set of criteria, I'm trying to change the value of another cell 6 columns to the right.(Column G) I've been trying for a couple of days now to get this working, but to no avail. I've tried to modify the code below that I've found on this site but can't quite figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Sub RatingsFix1SP()
Dim FindWhat, rngCell As Range, i As Integer
FindWhat = Array("BB", "B", "CCC", "CC", "C", "CCC+")
For i = 0 To 3
For Each rngCell In Range("A2", Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
If InStr(rngCell, FindWhat(i)) <> 0 Then
rngCell.Offset(0, 6) = 0.15
End If
Next rngCell
Next i
End Sub

To try to clarify a bit: If column A in the attached spreadsheet has a rating code of BB, B, CCC, CC, C, or CCC+, I want the Haircut % rate in column G to be 15%. It seems the code that I'm using changes the % rate to 15% if any "B" or "C" shows up in any part of the string in column A.

Jan 10, 2008

I am trying to set up a data validation to ensure that when a user enters a number in column A that matches a previously entered number in column A, the user is only allowed to enter the same date for the number it matches in column B.

For example, if:

Row 3 column A = 1320


Row 3 column B = 16-Dec-07


Row 15 column A = 1320


Row 15 column B must be 16-Dec-07

Copy Cell Value To Cell On Different Tab That Has Data Validation

Sep 11, 2013

I have a cell in Sheet1, C5 that is a formula that returns one of 2 values.

I have a macro that copies and pastes values from this sheet into Sheet2, however I cannot get the cell V3 in Sheet2 to have the value of C5 in Sheet1.

There is a data validation list of 3 choices in V3, two of which are available from Sheet1 C5, but I want the 3rd option to remain manual.

I have been playing around with it and even tried the manual recorder, but no luck

Here are some of my attempts:

Sheets("template").Cells(3, 22).Value = Sheets("New Details").Cells(5, 3).Value


Range("V3").Value = Sheets("New Details").Range("C5").Value

Neither of which have the desired effect.

Validation/Conditional Formatting Cell From Cell

May 16, 2008

Excel 2003 Scenario:

Column H contains text data as follows down the rows: BIKE/CAR/TRUCK.

Column N contains text data that would be entered free text by user down the rows; however, if the data entered in column N is not contained in column H it would warn the data is not contained in column H. Example: BOAT is not found in column H. Note; it could contain all text in column H for that row or just one word in column H for that row.

The goal is to recognize the text entered in column N is not contained in column H, warn and change the color of the text in column N to red.

I attempted to use Data/Validation, and Conditional Formatting; none seem to have a contain function.

Is there a formula or VBA I may use or any thoughts?

How To Check Particular Position In A Cell

Oct 9, 2013

have an assignment to complete and one of the tasks I found impossible to complete. First condition is that it should be completed with a formula (not VBA). So here is the task - I have different cells with IBAN codes in them. The 14th position in the IBAN is used to identify the currency of the account. There are 3 possible numbers - 0, 1 and 2 and each is for different currency. So I have this table where I need to lookup the 14th character in the cell with the IBAN, from there the formula needs not only to check what the number is (0,1 or 2) but also to compare it to another table from where to decide which is the currency. I tried various combinations with FIND/SEARCH but can't find a way to do it.. and I can't find other functions/formulas that can isolate a particular character position in a cell..
