Combo Box Populate Column

Aug 21, 2007

I have a quick question regarding combo boxes...and I may have to use VBA.

I want to have users select a value i.e. Fish from a down box. Once the user selects fish all instances for fish populate i.e. Trout, Salmon, Tuna, etc. in the adjacent column.

The list of fish can be in the same workbook or a different workbook as well as the value.

Combo Box Won't Populate

Dec 13, 2012

I have a problem where a combo box in a form won't populate from the VBA code in the initialise routine. I've tried a couple of difference methods for populating the combo box without success. The code I have is:

Option Explicit
Sub NewTender()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False


I tried the excel file uploaded by Norie but it only displayed "Is". Are there any settings I need to modify to allow the add item property to work?

Populating A Combo Box With Column Headings

I am trying to write an advanced sorting macro that sorts on more than 3 columns. I need to poulate a combo box with the column headings, so that I can choose which column to sort on first, second etc. Now I am a complete beginner at this sort of thing, but I believe that ranges are required.

Dynamic Column Headers In Combo Box

Jun 29, 2007

My spreadsheet has in the region of 30 columns, more will be added on occasion in the future and ultimately I want to have each of the column headers appear in a 2-tiered dependent combo box. In the following structure:

Category 1:
Header 1
Header 2
Header 3
Category 2:
Header 4
Header 5
Header 6
Header 7 etc...

What I'm not sure about is what the most efficent way of making it so that it will automatically add new Column headers (and possibly categories) to the drop-down box so that it does not need to be re-coded in the future.

Configuring Dates: Enter A Date In One Column, Another Column Will Automatically Populate With The 1st Of The Next Month

May 8, 2009

how to make a certain type of date automate. It's kind of hard to explain, but basically, I'd like to make it so that when I enter a date in one column, another column will automatically populate with the 1st of the next month. For example:

If I enter 4/26/2009 in the 1st column, column 2 will read: 5/1/2009
If I enter 1/19/2008 .................................................. 2/1/2008

Also, it's very important that if the FIRST date is already the first of the month, then the second column will read the same. For instance: If I enter 3/1/2009 in the first colum, the second column will ALSO read 3/1/2009.

Select Case Code For Column A Values To Populate Results In Column B In Same Row?

May 28, 2014

I'm trying to write a simple VBA code to loop through values in the range A14:A138 and based on the value (of a possible four values) in any row of that range, populate the adjacent column in the same row with a conditional result. For example if A14 = "Cat", then B14 = "I"; if instead A14 = "Dog", B14 = "II", etc. If there is no value in column A, the result should be blank (i.e. "").

I believe are in coding the destination range since I can get it to work for just one cell in B! Below is my code that is not working...

Capture Unique Values From 1 Column And Populate The Result Into Another Column

Aug 28, 2009

I have values in COlumn A, probably about 50K rows, The total unique values on the column A is only about 27. I need to capture all those unique values and paste them in column B. I didn't want to do "Advance filtering" since the workbook has many macros's on it that the user simply click on. Im thingking of creating a loop and compare values already pasted in Column b but then that will take too much time to complete the loop. Is there any easier or yet more efficient way to accomplish this?.

Populate A Column With Inconsistant Row

Jul 22, 2008

On user1.xls workbook. THe user click on cmdBtn4, it'll open template.xls file then populate 3 sheets(define, products, outlets) in User1.xls from template.xls. The others are working, except for products sheet.

As you can see, the template didn't work because of the changes made in the middle(breaks the consistancy). I traced the code and found where the problem lies (code in red), the code takes the 1st Row of uom. The rest for uom isn't registered. The outlet column is taken from the sheet Name.

The correct output in the products sheet would have 6 entries instead of 3: ...

Populate A Two Column Combobox

Dec 1, 2006

I am trying to populate a combo box with two columns of data read from two consecutive (or non consecutive) columns of data. The following code is what I have come up with after visiting several of the previous threads on similar topics (couldn't find one that gave a general, concise solution).

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Dim lngRow As Long
Dim lngRowtot As Integer
Parameters1.SG1.Clear 'Clear combobox SG1 in userform named Parameters1
'Find the number of rows required for the array and combo box
lngRow = 12 'Start searching on row 12
Do While Sheets("Timber Properties").Range("H" & lngRow).Value <> "" 'Read until empty col H lngRowtot = lngRow - 11
lngRow = lngRow + 1
Dim MyArray(1 To lngRowtot, 1 To lngRowtot) As String 'I get an error with the last ingRowtot on this line.....................

Populate Column With Later Dates

Aug 6, 2008

I am trying to find a formula that will automatically populate two columns on the same worksheet that a date is being entered in a different column. We train 468 new bus drivers every year and to accomplish this, we run 26 classes of 18 students with a new class starting every two weeks at our training facility. Each class is in training for six weeks (30 working days). The first 19 days they are under the instruction of our full-time instructors. The next nine days they are out on line instruction with regular drivers. On days 29 and 30 they are back in the training department for final evaluation and graduation. On Day 31 they are turned over to Service Delivery as regular full-time drivers.

If I enter a class start date of April 6, 2009 in cell B4 on "2009 Conventional Classes", the formula would automatically fill in D4 and E4 columns with dates that are 29 days later and 31 days later respectively but, would skip weekends and any statutory holidays (these would be represented by a different background color on the calendar templates).
