I'm using dependent drop-down lists. In the first box the user can choose a color which drives a set of options in the second box. (e.g. User selects "Red" and in the second dropdown they can then choose "Red A", "Red B", "Red C", etc.). Right now, if you select "Orange", it will still show "Red A" from the previous selection until the user selects the dropdown in the dependent box to refresh the list of options. Is there a way to make it so that second dropdown box will default to "Orange A"?
I tried writing some code to do this, but I can't seem to make it work. I've attached my file.
Situation: I have two drop down lists 1) Country and 2) States/province
Country has list: [US, Canada]
If "US" is selected, [Arizona ,Florida, NewYork] is listed in the 2nd drop down list If "Canada" is selected, [Alberta, Ontario, Quebec] is listed in the 2nd drop down list
Scenario: First, I select "US" and choose the states to "Florida" Next I change the country to "Canada" and forgot to choose province Then, the 2nd dropdown list is changed to [Alberta, Ontario, Quebec], BUT the current value is still "Florida"
Probem: Now I have "Canada" and "Florida" selected in the sheet
Question: If the primary list is changed, can I make the 2nd drop down list to show a default value (e.g. blank or the first entry i.e. Alberta)?
Two of them operate independently of each other, as in it doesn't matter whether a user selects yes or no, those are the two options. The validation list of the third question is dependent on the two others. Essentially if someone selects "No" to the first question, the only option for the third question is "N/A". If someone selects "Yes" to the first question and "Yes" to the second question, then they have the option of a yes/no drop down list. If someone selects "Yes" to the first question and "No" to the second, then the only option is "N/A." Here's my dilemma.
Since what I'm trying to create is going to be incorporated into a financial model that many people will use for to test a variety of scenarios, I'd like to make sure that the first option in the dependent drop down list (in question #3) displays automatically and changes if someone switches back and forth between different yes/no answers.
I've read how to get a dependent list to automatically populate the cell based on the selection in one cell (i.e. if question #1 is a "No", I can make the cell for question #3 populate with "N/A"). But since the validation list for question #3 is dependent on how someone responds to questions #1 AND #2, I'm not sure how to figure that out.
The only thread I could find on this topic was not resolved. I want to reset the value of a dependent drop down list (in H3) to the first valid choice when F3 is changed.
I have the following code that initially worked but no longer does.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) On Error Goto errHandler Dim DLRng As Range
If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Range("F3")) Is Nothing Then If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub Application.EnableEvents = False Set DLRng = ActiveWorkbook.Names(Target.Value).RefersToRange Me.Range("H3").Value = DLRng.Offset(0, 0).Value End If
exitHandler: Application.EnableEvents = True Exit Sub
errHandler: MsgBox "Could not change dependent cell" Goto exitHandler End Sub
I now get the error message ""Could not change dependent cell" every time I pick a different item in the drop down list in cell F3. If I remove the error handler I don't get the error and the code simply doesn't work.
Attempting to use INDIRECT function to create dependent data validation list (Type). The tricky part is that the drop down options are dependent on the values of two (2) cell values (Brand and Country).
I have used the INDIRECT function before but dependent on ONE cell value only.
I need to create a 2-stage dependent drop down list.
In cell G7 (on a tab called 'Data'), I have created a drop down list based on a range name called 'Region' .
In cell G8, I need to create a drop down list which is dependent on the value chosen in G7.
Problem is, I will need to create a dynamic range name here which needs to vlookup or match the value from G7 in a dynamic list of data (the data is on different tab called 'RCA Data' and is spread over columns A:E with row A for headings - the data will go down an undetermined number of rows)
Every time the value in G7 matches a value in the 'RCA data' (the potential matches are stored in column
D) I need the corresponding cell value in column C to be added to the dynamic list. This list then needs to be available to choose from a drop down list in G8.
I have a master list of names on sheet 1 column A. I want to create a list of names on sheet 2 column A of the people from Sheet 1 column A that have a specific value (Y) in column z sheet 1. I might also want to different numeric values for the Z column
I have three individual lists and I am using a formula like this for each of them =OFFSET(Table1,MATCH(F15,Table1,0)-1,1,COUNTIF(Table1,F15),1)
for my final cell I need to create another data validation list which is depenant on the values selected in the previous three lists.. how I would alter the formula to allow me to do that? I tried using and after the match to match all three tables but it never worked
I would like to create a list with reference to IF (E1:E150=1) list F1:F150 No Blanks. Cells E1:E150 will be either a 1 or a blank. The new list will be created in cells Y5:Y whatever. List will then become a drop down list.
I have created the list but it has blanks between names and I just want the names....
I'm able to create a simple User form Drop-down list that references a cell range list. ( as a test for myself) I have 4 separate macros I would like to run individually. Rather than create 4 separate buttons, I'd like to be able to select each one via Drop-Down list.
In Column A I have a list of Products and in Column B is the list of corresponding prices. I'd like to create a drop down list with the items in Column A that would automatically fill-in the pricing from Column B next to it. I've tried using an IF statement, but my product list is too long.
I am making a spreadsheet for food and calories, On sheet one i have a meal tracker, I want to have a drop down list in colum 1 that references the food list on sheet 2, column A=food, column B=Protien, column C=Carbs, column D=fat. The values from Sheet 2 columns B-D would then be inserted into Sheet A in the respective slots. I have fiddled with vlookup and tried numerous things but I can't seem to figure this out.
My problem is i need to create a drop down box in excell, now i have a list of names,
Name 1 Name 2 Name 3 Name 4..........
I need all thos enames in a drop down list but i think i keep doing things wrong, I am doing it like this, All names are in cells A23-A33, i have highlighted them and named them (Names) using the name box in the top left corner, i have then gone to Data, Validation, List, Then i have sourced it to "Names" and clicked ok, this is where my problem is. It Makes all the boxes for Name 1 - Name 10 Drop Down Boxes... And when i click on any of them it gives me a list of all the names, when i click on one of the Names that name appears in the drop down box but the original Name dissapears from the box completely!
Name 1 Name 2 Name 3 Name 4 Name 5..................
I have a spreadsheet called contacts which is as it says, I have another sheet called project management, I want to have a drop down list which refers back to the contacts spreadsheet, it this possible as they are two different files?
I have a list of jobs being displayed using the following code. All sheet names that start with AJ, CJ and PJ within the workbook are how the list is created.
Sub ListSheets() Dim sht As Worksheet Dim lRow As Long Dim rCell As Range
Set rCell = .Cells(2, 12) End With
For Each sht In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets Select Case UCase(Left(sht.Name, 2)) Case Is = "AJ", "CJ", "PJ" lRow = lRow + 1 rCell(lRow, 1) = sht.Name
Case Else End Select Next sht
what i want to do is create a drop list within each job sheet within the workbook that will display the names of the jobs above. Now the thing is I cannot choose the range like normal from data - validation - list as I will not know how many job names will be displayed so I dont know how many cells to include in the range.
1. When a user clicks on a Drop down box and selects "Add New", I would like a Macro to run
2. I want this Macro to open up a Dialog/Text box to say "Enter New Information" where the user can enter in some text
3. The text that is entered by the user into this box will be added as a new entry into the Drop down box selection
My VBA knowledge is still at a beginner's level and I know how to get a Macro to run based on a cell value. However I don't know how to create a Macro for the dialog box nor do I know how to create a Macro for updating the drop-down items.
I'm trying to create a drop down list which returns values based on what has been selected in the previous drop down list in the adjacent cell, e.g. if 'Apples' is selected in the previous cell then you should only be able to select from 'Gala, Granny Smith', or if 'Oranges' is selected you should only be able to select 'Seville, Blood Orange'. Is there a formula which would do this, or can I use a pivot table somehow? I'm totally stumped.
I need to have a drop down list which displays a different set of values depending upon the value selected by a previous drop down list. ie. (drop down box 1)= x, y, z. (drop down box 2)= either x1, x2, x3, or y1, y2, y3, or z1, z2, z3. I can produce a single drop down box thats not a problem but linking several drop down boxes is beyond me .
I have been searching on this for a little while now but have not been able to find a solution to my problem. I have been asked to create a series of dependent dropdown lists using excel so that we can use these for inventory imports into a asset system. The catch on this is that nobody here really has any idea on how to make these dependent lists reference each other correctly. The reason for that is because the fields all have spaces in them and I do not know how to get a list name with a space in it or to create the proper translation for it. An example of this would be something like what I have written in below ....
