Check If Cell Has Data Validation With VBA

Nov 15, 2008

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.

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.

Data Validation: Can I Use Data Validation In A Cell That Has Formulas In It?

Apr 3, 2009

I have attached a sheet that I am working on. I want cell G1 to be less than or equal to 165. That cell contains a formula. If the formula takes the number to over 165 the validation is allowing it.

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!

How To Validate If Data In A Cell Conforms To Data Validation Rules In The Cell

Oct 14, 2009

I have an Excel workbook which contains data entry fields, which have different types of data validation rules - like Lists, Date, Whole Number.

I do not want end users to remove these data validations as well as the formatting of these cells by doing copy/paste. So, I have implemented techniques mentioned in the following post, and elsewhere - to override the paste functionality and implement PasteSpecial values automatically.

[url]
To keep it simple, I'm only supporting pasting a single cell at a time.

Now my problem is this:
Doing the PasteSpecial values programmatically doesn't prevent the user from pasting values in the cell that violate the data validation rules. So, I can paste a string into a cell having data validation as Whole Number, or a invalid string into a cell having data validation as List.

The following post just suggests disabling paste whenever data validation is present:
[url]

But I would like to allow the paste operation if the value being pasted is a valid value for the cell's data validation.

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 format...ie 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....

Data Validation To Ensure Like Numbers In Cell A Has Same Date In Cell B

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

and

Row 3 column B = 16-Dec-07

and

Row 15 column A = 1320

then:

Row 15 column B must be 16-Dec-07

Apply Data Validation If Cell Value Is < X

Feb 2, 2009

I'm building some work life balance spreadsheets for employees to show satisfaction levels / hours etc...

For the satisfaction piece - users will enter a value between 0 and 5 with 5 = happy as larry and 0 = ready to quit. Next to this field is a comments box. This comments box only needs to be populated (from a data validation list) if the staff are unhappy.

I need the file to prevent users entering a value less than 3.99 without selecting a comment from the validation list. Users will go into the file and update for their own lines so the check can be written into the save function maybe???

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.

Code:
Sub Tester()

Dim WB As Workbook
Dim WS As Worksheets
Dim modCounter As Long
Dim Cell As Range

Set WB = Workbook("Transverse Series.xlsm")
Set WS = WB.Sheets(BM18)

Data Validation List Based Off Cell Value

Apr 25, 2014

I'm trying to have a Data Validation list issue where I want to populate a second list based upon the value of the first list.

In this instance I have a Department in the drop down and Employee Name in the second drop down and I want people to only see Employee names if they're allocated to a particular Department. I've been able to do the list using the INDIRECT function, however that only works when there's only a small sample of both names & depts, however I'm looking at populating this document with around 3000 people and over 250 departments, so I would like to be able to use Column J on the Source Tab to populate the details on the Manager Entry tab.

I have attached a sample spreadsheet if I've not explained very clearly.

Multiple Data Validation Entries Into One Cell

Jun 2, 2014

Is it possible to create a formula using a Data Validation List where it will add a new entry to the existing entries in a cell?
For example: I have a data validation list with the names of Pete, Chris, Bruce, Carly, Megan, and Becky. With the normal data validation set I can select one entry and it will be output into the designated cell. If I select Bruce then Bruce with be placed in the cell. Is it possible to set it up so that each time I click on data validation it will add an entry to the already existing entry? E.g. I have already selected Bruce then I decide to add Becky, I want the output cell to show both Bruce and Becky.

I know I can do this with a formula that will place all the results from different cells into a single cell, but I would then have to create multiple data validation entries of which I would rather avoid if possible. Not to mention I don't remember how to do this formula anyway......

Data Validation Dependent On Another Cell Being Completed?

Jan 27, 2014

I've got a password protected spreadsheet with only certain cells unlocked to allow users to complete them. I need the following to work on Excel versions 2003, 2007 & 2010.

Cell E3 has a drop down list with types of car to choose from. One of the car types is "Pool_Car".

Cell D12 should only be used if "Pool_Car" is selected from the drop down list. If any other car type is selected, and the user tries to enter a figure in D12, I need an error message to appear.

E3 & D12 are unlocked cells.

I'm happy for D12 to become locked & only allow it to be unlocked if "pool_car" is selected, but I've looked elsewhere, but can't find VBA or data validation to work.

Using A Cell On Another Worksheet As Input For Data Validation

Oct 13, 2008

Situation: I have an Excel file with multiple worksheets. Each of these worksheets contain the same rules for data validation in a certain column (G).

Problem: If I want to add an item to the data validation lists I have to edit every single worksheet. I've tried making a seperate worksheet containing data validation items and using that as the source for the data validation rule, but Excel doesn't allow me to switch worksheets while defining the source.

In other words, I want to manage my data validation rules of multiple columns in multiple worksheets in one central location.

I'm working on a few dynamic KPI charts and could use a little help with figuring out data valuation for the End Date value. In the attached workbook I am using data validation to pick a start date from a dynamic list (Dates) in E2:Exxx. Cell B2 has 2/8/2010 picked. I would like to have a drop down in B2 show the listing of all dates in E2:Exxx which occur after 2/8/2010, so the filtered list would be in the range E3:E49.

Data Validation - Blank Cell Not Working

Sep 11, 2013

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.

Reference Data Validation Cell From Another Workbook

Sep 17, 2008

I'm trying to link a range of cells in one workbook to a range in another workbook, both in a network drive. Everything is working out well except for the cells that have a data validation list on them. the formula linking one cell is ='G:Destination To[Workbook2.xls]SheetX!B13 so I'm just trying to get the value in the cell. I don't need the validation list to transfer just the value of what was selected. If I go to that cell and type something in then it transfers over just fine. If the validation list was used in Workbook2 then I get a #N/A in Workbook1 that is linking to the Workbook2 cell.

How can I link the cell with a data validation list in it to a cell in another workbook so that I can get the data in the cell (whatever was selected from the validation list)?......

Prevent Empty Cell With Data Validation

Nov 17, 2007

I'm looking for a formula which will enable typing (in cell A1) positive numbers between 0-1000000 but will prevent the user from leaving that cell in an empty state. Empty cell means: cell with space(s) or deleting the legitimate value that is, already, in it).

I must emphasize that I know how to handle this by VBA code and/or by using a "named" pre-defined list of values + un-checking the "ignore empty cell" option - but I would like to know, once and for all, the solution WITHOUT using Macro and/or 'List' (if any..)

I tried that, without success:

=AND(A1>=0,A1<=100000,NOT(ISBLANK(A1))

Check A Cell For List Of Data - If Found Then Print Row

Mar 29, 2014

I have a tab with different city names and then a a series of answers to a number of different questions, what I need to do is create a macro which looks a table on a different tab, and if column b matches any of the words in the table to then print that entire row of answers.

So if the information found in R1!M3:M21 is found in Results!B:B then print that row to sheet R1. If the information found in R2!M3:M22 is found in Results!B:B then print to sheet R2 etc.

This is the only other way I could describe it, however I don't think it can be done as a formula anyway (even though it is somewhat gibberish)

IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(R1!M3:M21,Results!B:B))print the row,move onto next row)

Excel - Check For Duplicate Data When Populating A Cell?

Jan 27, 2014

I have a big database of customers, each one has a unique reference number. They are spread accross a bunch of different tabs (21 in total to be exact)

One issue I have had is staff entering a customer whos already in the database, causing a duplicate entry. I dont need excel to tell us where the entry is, just to give some kind of indicator it already exists. I thought I may be able to use data validation/conditionality to turn the cell fill Red when it already exists in the data base.

The reason I think that method would be best, is that the sheets that data is entered on are seperate that the master sheet then pulls the data through from. Its the master sheet that would need to indicate a duplicate has been entered, as thats the only sheet where the entire database can be viewed.

Check Cell Upon Selection Allowing For Filtered Data

Nov 28, 2007

I have a database of names and titles (acutally: #, last name, full name, title, meeting) and at this point I have a column using the following code.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A5:A355")) Is Nothing Then
Range("A5:A355").Cells.Clear
Target.Font.Name = "Marlett"
If Target = vbNullString Then
Target = "a"
Else
Target = vbNullString
End If
End If
End Sub

everything works like I want, except when I use the auto filter, the "a" won't be cleared from cells that are hidden. I need to make sure only one "a" is populated in this column as that's what I'm using with the vlookup function to key the data for my Character Generator.

Maybe I'm not using the best code, I'm new to this and just cobbled together code from a few different places.

Some quick background to what I'm doing, but you may not need it to help. I'm trying to use Excel to populate some cells that will tell our Chyron Character Generator (for those that don't know what that is, it's the device that puts graphics on screen during news programs, etc...) what to put up for lower third titles (and more) for our meetings we cover.

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

or

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

Neither of which have the desired effect.

Prevent Copy Paste Over Data Validation Cell?

Mar 27, 2009

I set up a spread*** with drop-down menus for some of the cells. The user can only select values from that list and an error message pops up when something is typed it that is not in the list (via Data Validation

Error Alert).

So this works all fine ... except if the user copies and pastes a cell with a different drop-down menu into a cell overwriting the existing validation.

I cannot totally lock the work*** and if I lock the cells with the drop-down menus nothing can be changed. So how can I prevent this from happening? Is there a way to block all copy/paste operations that are copying the validation? I know that with the Paste Special I can have cells copied without the validation.
