Count The Number Of Entries In A Data Validation Dropdown List And Display A Result.

Nov 7, 2007

I am trying to do 2 things involving data validation. 1) Count the number of entries in a data validation dropdown list and display a result. 2) Use an If statement to pull the formatting from a cell into another cell.

An example would be if Cell A1="A", then show the drop down list associated with cell or sheet "!ryanB2". Alternatively, I would like to also display the number of entries in the drop down list.

Add New Entries To Drop-Down/Validation List

Sep 2, 2006

I'm trying to make a sheet that will allow users to either pick from a drop down box, or if the choice they want isn't there, to input data in the same cell. That part I have got. What I can't do is figure out how to have excel add that user input to the list of options, so that they next time the drop down box is used, that "user input" will appear as an option in the drop down. I used data validation to do all these drop downs.

Set Maximum Number Of Entries In A Range - Data Validation?

Dec 8, 2012

Basically in cells b12:b26 (15 cells) I need to enter the type of item (which is limited to 2 items). I made a drop down list for that range which works perfectly, therefore the user can choose either item 1 or item 2 or blank. However, I need to figure out a way so that item 1 can be chosen a maximum of 10 times in the range, and item 2 can only be chosen 5 times in that same range..

I am assuming that you can't add that condition to the drop down list... So I was thinking of adding an extra column duplicating b12:b26 (c12:=b12 etc...)- and entering a data validation there.

I was going to enter the following:

if item 1 is chose : =NOT(COUNT($c$12:$c$26)>10) &
if item 2 is chosen: =NOT(COUNT($c$6:$c$6)>5).

However, for some reason it doesn't work - it doesn't block the entry if I try to enter 11 item 1s or 6 item 2s.

Auto-Update Validation List When New Entries Added To Source

Mar 18, 2008

how to make all cells displaying an item from the list source update with new information added to list source.

Example:
Cell "A1" on worksheet 2 displays the 3rd slot of information from list source on worsheet 5. I want cell "A1" on worksheet 2 to update when the list source information in the 3rd slot on worksheet 5 is changed.

Notes:
The list is set up by naming the columns on Worksheet 5 and is set as a validation list on the other worksheets. So on Worksheet 2 column "A" has the validation

VB:
AutoLinked keywords will cause extra spaces before keywords. Extra spacing is NOT transferred when copy/pasting, but IS if the keyword uses "quotes".

List=(Coulumn A 's name on worksheet 5)

Dropdown List Using Data Validation

Feb 25, 2014

I have a list on one worksheet and I use a dropdown list from Data Validation to select the name required.

My list is so long that I would like to be able to type a letter or two to access to the name quicker instead of scrolling down.

I copied a formula that worked for someone else that put this formula in the data validation

(IF(I36<>"",OFFSET(Player,MATCH(I36&"*",Player,0)-1,,SUMPRODUCT((MID(Player,1,LEN(I36))=TEXT(I36,"0"))*1)),Player))

I do not wish to use VBA is possible.

Dropdown Data Validation List

Mar 6, 2013

I have a query with data validation.....

Can I have a cell rage.. say A2:E20...and every cell in it has a drop down data validation list, from data inputted into L2:L27 (For examples lets say L2 is A, L3 is B, L4 is C, L5 is D and so on).

if somewhere in the range A2:E20, say B6 I was to select D from the drop down list, I want the remainder of the cells in range A2:E20, to have the drop down list without the value D in it, and so on, so the more cells in the range I fill from the list, the list for empty cells gets smaller and smaller until there are none left.

Display A List Of Cell Entries, Allow The User To Select Which To Delete

Sep 16, 2009

Hoping someone would be able to help me with this. I have a sheet (example attached) and this sheet has a number of varying description types in the W coloumn (usually approx 10,000 rows). This field is manually input so there could be spelling mistakes and/or non standard descriptions.

What I would like, if possible, is a macro that would look at the D column and if this is 'GENERAL LEDGER', it would then look at the W column.

An input box would come up, and would list the different descriptions it found in column W, and number them. It would only list each different description once.

e.g.

1. Bank charges
2. Bank charge
3. Cash
4. Fund Custodian Fees
5. Fund Manager fee
6. Interest income cash account
7. Interest income cash acc
8. Miscellaneous expenses
9. Miscellaneous income
10. Other income
11. Sec lending comm
12. Sec lending commission income
13. Tax Reclaimable - Dividends
14. Withholding tax dividend

The user would then be able to type in the corresponding numbers, if possible seperated by a space, comma or semicolon and the macro would then run through the sheet and delete the entire row if D was GENERAL LEDGER and W was the selected description.

How To Add Dropdown List AND Customer Data Validation

I have a very detailed spreadsheet with drop down lists. I would like to block other cells if previous cells have certain selections. I have 7 columns of data that get inputted throughout the month.

Data Validation And Dropdown List Using Criteria

Jun 1, 2014

It is basically a simple sheet that lists the price (Column C) of different items (Column B) based on their Category (Column A).

I am trying to have an automated pricing sheet (on different sheet) utilizing data validation and drop down lists.

For example each row should have this, the drop down list in the first columns should list all the Categories available (This part works fine for me and i can take care of the duplicates).

Once that has been selected, i have now the option of selecting using drop down list also (in second column) the items corresponding to the Category selected in first column (Only the items that are part of that specific category should be listed in the drop down list).

Once the item has been selected, the price of that respective item should be listed automatically in the 3rd column.

Data Validation To Create Dropdown List

Sep 12, 2012

I am in the process of creating a database, and have used 'Data Validation' to create drop down lists in order to obtain information quickly from the database.

I have encountered an issue where if I have a list the resembles the one shown below, the drop down list will show spaces.

This is particularly an issue for myself and my database because there is over 1,000 items in the list, and there are countless empty cells within the list. I have tried sorting the list, BUT because the database is quite large, sorting it will disrupt other functions of the database.

Ideally, I would like the drop down list to show only entries within the list that are not empty so the drop down list is entirely relevant, and more user friendly.

Custom Data Validation With Dropdown List

Jun 30, 2008

I have a data validation in a cell that works like this : if a control cell has the value "F" it validates the input with some dates in a custom list, if not it does nothing.

The formula looks like this :

=IF(F2="F",datelist,"")
It works fine but I also want it to display the drop down list when cell F2 = F, now all i can do is type a value and it checks if it's ok.
Can I do this without using vba ? I will send this to other persons and I don't want the macro warning to pop up when they open it.

Dependent Dropdown List - 3 Levels - Remove Common Entries From Selection - Show Relevant

Dec 4, 2013

I have scoured the net for the following and have not been able to find a solution. I have found variations but not something specific for the use needed here.

I have attached a file with sample data which has the following format.

Column 1 = vehicle model (in this example golf, jetta, but there will be over 100 choices)

Column 2 = vehicle package option for specified vehicle model (automatic transmission, manual transmission, automatic transmission with air conditioning, etc...)

Column 3 = vehicle colour available for vehicle package option

Please note that Column 2 values for 'golf' are different than values available for 'jetta' (in the sample data I have blocked out common values with the same colour for quick and easy identification)

Also please note that Column 3 values of colour options vary for each 'vehicle package option'.

The behaviour that would be ideal is to have 3 drop down menus. The first drop down menu will allow selection from column 1 and will show each model only one time and repeated values will not be shown. The second drop down menu will only show the options available based on the selection in the first drop down menu. Likewise, the third drop down menu will show the colour options available based on the selection in the second drop down menu.

Since my data will involve hundreds of unique values in column 1 with plenty more added over time, it seems that the format of the data and the way it is laid out in the attached sample is the easiest way to organize it. It is perhaps also the easiest way to include new data without a lot of reprogramming.

OFFSET / Data Validation - Dropdown List Not Working

Aug 21, 2012

I have the following function in cell (table 2 column C) where I want to find a contact name from my table TMI if 3 criteria are true (client, account, NAM) For each contact I have 1 true combination of client/account/NAM but for each client/account/Nam I can have several contacts.

{=OFFSET(TMI[[#Headers],[Contact]],MATCH(1,(TMI[Client]=$B$1)*(TMI[NAM]=C3)*(TMI[Account]=B3),0),,COUNTIFS(TMI[Client],$B$1,TMI[Account],B3,TMI[NAM],C3),1)}

The function is working well but shows only the first contact name if I have 3 contacts for the same client/account/NAM. (I pressed Ctrl+Shift+Enter)

When I press F9 on the function, it shows all the contact names! so they are somewhere.

Hence, I have copied and pasted this function into data validation / list in the source but it came up with an erreur.

Table TMI:

A B C DClient
Account
NAM

Table with offset function:

Data Validation List - Country Names Are Selections But 2 Digit Codes Need To Be Result

May 7, 2014

I've written a procedure that loads a list of country selections in a dropdown (see attached/vb editor/ThisWorkbook).

The problem is the valid values for this column need to be just the two digit country codes, not the country code +dash+country name. The reason the dropdown selections include both the two digit country code and the country name is because most users will not know the two digit codes. Presenting the selections in this fashion will make t much easier for the user to make the proper selection.

So here is what I need: When the user makes a selection from the dropdown list, the resulting value needs to be the two digit country code only. Is there a way to incorporate this formula .... =MID(B2|1|2) ... in the vba procedure which runs after the user makes a selection? Or, is there another way to accomplish this?

Multiple Dependencies For Data Validation Dropdown List In Excel - NO VBA

Feb 7, 2012

So, I need to figure out how to make the populated contents of a single dropdown box dependent upon the selected results in two other drop downs.

As there are ~35K lines in the sheet, creating Lists is impractical, and VBA is out due to client security settings.

My data sort order is: Region Name > Area # > Facility Name

I have a drop down to select the Region I want to work in.

The drop-down for Area # populates based on the selection from Region Name.

The hang-up is that the area numbers are 1-4 for each Region.

So, I can't simply populate another drop-down for Facility from the result from Area #, but it has to be based upon the results of both of the former results.

Selecting Named Range From Dropdown Validation List To Use In Formula?

Basically on a summary page, on sheet 1 say I have a formula which picks up the unit cost (I have this as an array across 5 years)

What I then want to do is multiply this by a volume driver. I have a list of these drivers on a seperate page, so for convenience lets say DRIVER_01,DRIVER_02 etc. These are also 5 years arrays.

So what I want to do it be able to select which driver I want to use for volume on the summary, from a drop down box I have set up, and then the formula pick up that named range, and not just recognise it as a text cell.

I need the ability to change the driver in the future, hence the drop down box. I can also get the unit array part to work fine, I'm just struggling to get this driver array to work..............

I do not have these prices formatted as currency as their are 2 different currency used and I don't know how to make the correct currency format appear automatically, though I do have a drop down validation column for which currency the transaction was in, so maybe that is possible.

Make a Data Validation dropdown list that also enters a range for cells, for example:

Kitchen High Upto 100 Easy Blank 2 Daily >6 hrs Medium >1 week
Lounge Low Large Easy Blank 0 Daily >6 hrs Medium >1 month
Bedroom Low Large 100 Easy Blank 1-3 Daily 1-3 Low >1 year
Bathroom High Upto 100 Easy Blank 0 Weekly 1-6 Low <1 year

I can make a dropdown list for:

Kitchen
Lounge
Bedroom
Bathroom

But if I select "Kitchen" I would like it to enter the rest of the cells in that row:

Kitchen High Upto 100 Easy 2 Daily >6 hrs Medium >1 week

The total number of rows I use is 10, and the number of items in the dropdown list will be 30.

The data in the cells 2 to 10 does not change from that first set to its data menu name.
