Clear One Cells Content When Changing Another Cell

Jan 8, 2007

I am quite a novice with excel and I am trying to get a cell to show blank when I select a drop down list value in another cell.

Cell D2 contains a validated list containing two items (Air, Vacuum).

If I select Vacuum I wish to change another cells (D4) contents to blank, D4 is also a validated list containing three items (Yes, No, BLANK) the blank is actually a blank space and not the text blank.

I can get the cell to operate correctly but if I select Air in Cell D2 and then Yes in cell D4, but then change my mind and reset to Vacuum in cell D2 i need the cell D4 to clear its contents automatically.

Clear Cell Content Based On Another Cell Calculation

Dec 21, 2012

I have a cell A1 in sheet2 linked cell A1 in sheet1 (simply A1='sheet1'!A1). A1 in sheet1 is a data validation drop down menu.

I want to clear the content of A2 in sheet 2 everytime the content of A1 in sheet2 changes/is updated. That is everytime the value of A1 in sheet1 is changed using the drop down menu.

I tried using a Worksheet_Change event macro (which I do not fully understand) but it won't work with a cell that updates from a calculation. It also doesn't work if triggered from a cell from another worksheet (I tried linking it to cell A1 on sheet1 in this case).

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Intersect(Target, Range("A1")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
End Sub

Any simple solution to clear the content of cell A2 in sheet2 when A1 in sheet2 updates?

On Cell Selection, In Named Range, Clear Content Or Add Text If Empty

Jul 24, 2009

I wrote some code that toggles bewtweeen the word "Yes" and the function clearcontents.

What it does not do, is if you click on cell A1 and change it's contents and you click on the same cell again it does nothing. You need to click on another cell say A2 before you can go and change A1 again.

My code is as follows:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)

If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub

If Not Intersect(Target, Range("Documents")) Is Nothing Then
On Error Resume Next
Application.EnableEvents = False
If IsEmpty(Target) Then
Target.Value = "Yes"
End If
Application.EnableEvents = True
On Error Goto 0
End If

End Sub

Creating Dropdown Menus With Extensive Changing Content

Jun 11, 2013

I have a problem (I have intermediate knowledge of Excel): lets say that I have two model years for Cadillac: 2013 and 2014, and have 3 car models for year 2013 (ATS, XTS, and CRX) and two car models for year 2014 (ELR and CTS Sedan). I want to create a dropdown menu under "Model Year" that will show me 2013 and 2014. When I click on either one, a dropdown list for all car models for that year can appear in the next column under "Models". Then, for each car model, there are different characteristics that are in other columns, such as horsepower, mileage, etc...I want all of the content to stay on one line (row), but change when I click on a different model.

Copying Many Cells, Drop Content Into One Cell?

Jul 7, 2009

I have a document I was directed to fill in. I was instructed to only use a certain number of characters and then drop into another cell below it for paragraphs of text. I have now been told they made a mistake, need me to copy all the related cells for a specific paragraph and drop them into a single cell.

Can I copy the text in multiple cells, and then drop the cell formating of those copied cells and drop the content into one single cell. Either word wrapping the content or soft returns for what looks like paragraphs again?

Change Cell Color If Another Cells Content Is Yes Or No

Apr 3, 2009

I have a large workbook with some tasks.

My problem is:

I have 8 columns with info.

In the second column i type a part number and in the third one i type "Yes" or "No".

I wanted to make the second columns cell turn red if the third column's value is Yes or white if the value is No.

Is possible to do that with the help of a formula, conditional formating or vba?

I prefer to use a formula or the conditional formating.

I searched the net but i found a solution if the third column contains a number not a text.

Clear Cells On Adjacent Cell Change

Mar 13, 2012

I have text in column F (cells 20 to 199) that changes automatically based on pre-determined time constraints (this is done via an IF formula). I want the 4 cells adjacent to F to clear contents when the text in F changes. For example when cell F126 changes text automatically, G126, H126, I126 and J126 all clear. If cell F99 changes, cells G99, H99, I99 and J99 clear. And so on.

Clear Value Cell & Leave Formula Cells

Dec 19, 2007

The worksheet (Payments) contains a list that allows the user to input accounting transactions. Almost every input cell contains a formula or data validation enabling selection from a dropdown.

The worksheet feeds the data to 3 separate spreadsheets (Debits / Credits / VAT) and the formulas for that are contained within dynamic ranges in the other 3 sheets. A command button macro then feeds that data from the 3 sheets to the Master sheet. This all works perfectly.

After the macro is run and the data is copied to the Master sheet, I would like all of the data in the 4 other sheets to be cleared without losing the formulas and data validation, ie so that the sheets are empty and clear for the next batch of inputs.

Matching Cell Content Against Selected Cells - Not Range?

May 2, 2013

I'm trying to use the below formula to to return "true" when text in cell (M2) matches text in selected cells on same row (A2, E2, and G2)

However, all formulas I found online that serve this purpose deal with cell range only, not predetermined cells with exclusions.


=IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(M2,A2:G2,0),TRUE,FALSE) (This will match all cells between A2 and G2 against M2)

reforming this formula to match selected cells only in-between that range (A2, E2 and G2)?

Clear Cells In A Range Based On Other Cell Values

Jun 6, 2012

I have two rows of numbers, say D1 to F1 and D2 to F2. Row D2 to F2 will always have lower values.

The range below it is D3 to F100. I want the range to clear the contents of the cells in the range where:

a) the cell is > the x1 cell above it

OR b) the cell is < the x2 cell above it

If it is = or between the two cells, the value stays.


If D1 thru F1 is 4, 5, 7 and D2 thru F2 is 2, 4, 3, then:
D3 is 5, it is cleared
E3 is 4, it stays
F3 is 5, it stays
D4 is 2, it stays
E4 is 1, it is cleared
F4 is 9, it is cleared

Basically, the cell in the range looks up its own column, compares itself to x1 and x2 in that column. If it's greater than or less than, then it clears the contents, if not, the value in the cell stays.
