Creating Relationships Lists From Data Tables Within MS Excel?

Mar 22, 2013

how to do this, but I know it can be done.... I want to use one drop down list created via the Data Validation 'List' Criteria to then lookup data based on the selection made in this list...... this will require a number of reiterations to get to the final result......


Drop Down No:

1. List: Department Function:

2. List: Sub Function List Based on Selection from 1.

3. List: Job Code, Title and Pay Grade based on Selection from step 2

how to ensure that we are able to minimise the overall workbook size due to the complexity that is required here as this is just the basics.... this will need to applicable further once this basic requirement has been fulfilled.

Creating Multiple Word Tables From Excel Data?

Sep 17, 2011

I'm working on a national survey with valuable data from students. The plan is to turn around, 100 different reports to the departments with their respective students.

The issue that I have is creating multiple tables from multiple sheets in excel into a word table, any way of automating it.

What the tables look like in excel:

What I want them to look like in word, with a chart if possible:

I realize that I can just copy and paste easy table into word from excel and with a few clicks of a button, get what I want. But i'm looking for something to automate and simplify this process. There are about 300-400 variables that I need to crosstab with certain demographics.

If it matters any, I bought a software package (Q Market Research) but it doesn't make the tables look exactly how I want them to look. The data is from SPSS, those tables are flat out.

Excel 2010 :: Creating Multiple Tables In VBA And Referring To Newly Created Tables?

Jul 1, 2013

Using Excel 2010. I'm writing a macro that sets up a workbook to be used for estimating at the beginning of a project. In the code I need to create multiple tables (formerly known as "lists") in the workbook. Then later in the code I need to refer back to those newly created tables. Currently, the code that creates the table is part of a loop that creates the table on many different worksheets. The problem of course, is that I have to name the Table, and then it won't create a table of the same name on the next sheet. Then, later in the code, I need to make adjustments to the table that was just created before looping to the next sheet.

Is there a way to create a table without giving it a constant name? Or by giving it a name that builds off of other info in the sheet? For example, I would be good with the naming the table after the sheet name: "Sheet1_Table" or such.

Sub Auto_Open()
Dim sht As Worksheet
If Range("A1") = 1 Then

Autofill Data Validation Lists And Formulas Into New Columns In Tables?

Jan 9, 2014

My Table has a data validation list in one row of a table. And different formulas in different rows.

The Table is expanded only into columns. Which means, there will be no new rows...only columns will be added.

If we enter text into the header cell in a new column, the whole new column gets formatted, but the list and formulas do not auto fill into new columns.

Of course an easy way is to copy and paste a column...but is there a way to auto fill lists and formulas into columns of the table? Similar to how the rows get autofilled?

Excel 2013 :: Creating Two Tables That Can Reference With Microsoft-query

Jun 28, 2013

I don't have Excel 2013 so unfortunately I can't easily create relational data in Excel 2010. I'm looking for a solution to a design problem. I'd like to have 2 tables which I can join with Microsoft Query and run pivot table reports.

My department processes payments, both for internal clients and external clients. My Payments table looks like:

Date | Type (internal/external) | Operation (what type of payment) | Method (internet, mail, etc) | Quantity

Additionally, I have a table for Mail Opening, which looks like:

Date | Employee | Operation | Quantity

My overlapping fields are Date and Operation. Using each table individually, I can get nice pivot table reports. What I'd like to do though is be able to not just see what operations and methods were run each day with what quantities, but also to compare that to how much mail was opened. Employee and Operation is a multi-multi relationship, so when I join by date, I end up getting incorrect numbers because of problems with the data layout. I'm open to changing my data structure, as I know the way it's set up right now isn't great, but I'm having a mental block on how to redesign it. I attached a sample workbook.

Excel 2010 :: Creating Multiple / Repeatable Lists Of Random Numbers

May 19, 2014

I am trying to create challenge/response cards. Each card will have a 5-digit number in the upper-left and lower-right corner along with a series of rows containing a line number and 3 pairs of challenge/response words.

Rather than have have copies of these cards, I want the central office to have a macro-enabled workbook wherein they can enter the two numbers from the card and have the challenge/response matrix regenerate on a worksheet.

So, essentially, I want the challenges random number generator seeded from one of the 5-digit numbers and the responses random number generator seeded from the other 5-digit number.

I am trying to use

where Seed is one of the 5-digit numbers.

The problem appears to be that, no matter what I use for Seed, the RND(-1) function is not resulting in different numbers.

I am using Excel 2007 and Excel 2010.

Creating Table From Data From Several Other Tables

Jan 10, 2014

My family owns a Fast Casual Middle Eastern/ Mediterranean Restaurant. I'm taking charge of making it as profitable as can be! Our plates are different combinations of kebabs, rice, Falafels, Gyros, salad, platters. So theirs tons of combinations.

I am Dead serious about knowing REAL plate costs:

I spent days entering price data, weighing meat, produce, calculating usable yields. I then built "component builders" using data validation drop-downs, and Index + Match functions to construct the costs of the recipe items,standard base items and side items. So I now know How much a skewer of Marinated Kebab Costs me, and all the Components that go into building a plate.

I've now built a "Plate Builder" (See Pic) to create the EVERY combination available at our restaurant. So when I'm done filling in all the builders, I'll have a whole lot of tables. I'd like to pull the name and plate cost from each table and create a big table organized by whether its eat in or take out. How do I do it.

TL;DR: Need to create a table that pulls data from several other tables....

Creating Tables Correctly To Get Data

Aug 12, 2006

I've attached what I've done so far. I'm trying to figure out a way to capture everything. For instance, instead of using separate boxes for the different groups, isn't there a way that I can put the # Registered, # Attendance, % Attendance, % Didn't Attend, Units Didn't Attend, and list the different units, and different groups. I'd like it to be sort of like the very last box where I have the different sessions and the different groups in there, but I'm not sure where I could add the # Registered, # Attendance, % Attendance, % Didn't Attend, Units Didn't Attend, because the last box only formulates the percent attendance for each session by the different groups. I need it to also formulate the # Registered, # Attendance, % Attendance, % Didn't Attend, Units Didn't Attend. Is there a way this can be done without using separate boxes for each group.

Is there a way to do this using a pivot table or formulas, instead of manually?

Creating Cascading Data Validation Lists / Comboboxes Without Named Ranges?

Jul 28, 2014

Is there a way to add cascading lists (from data validation or form/activex controls) to my excel spreadsheet WITHOUT using named ranges? Maybe structured references?

I need to avoid the named ranges because it will cause my workbook to have duplicate named range titles which I cannot avoid.

As a general example my issue arises because I have something like this where the titles are the same but they map to slightly different data. These also have to be cascading because the titles align to another list which I do not show in the example. I also considered using pivot tables, but the issue there is that the data validation lists repeat in the same worksheet. So I would have 3 cascading lists in row1 dependent on each other, but the same 3 lists in row2 dependent on row2 but not the previous row.

[Code] .....

Creating Lists Dependent On Each Other

Jul 29, 2006

how to do this and I just can't seem to figure it out...I've come close, but something always seems to be incorrect when I try to do it.

So what I have is 5 column sheet (please see the attached file).
What I would like to do is have the 1st column (Main Folder) be a drop down list and have the other 4 columns dependent on the 1st.

So for example, if I choose Business Hierarchy then in the Subfolder, Subfolder2 there should be nothing shown and under the Attribute column, there should be:


shown to the user.

Or if I were to pick Unit from the Main Folder, then in Subfolder Unit, Unit Options, Unit Budgets, Dates, etc. should be shown while in Subfolder2 the items for Corresponding to Dates should be shown.

Currently the description box is blank, but will be needed to correspond just with the pertinent main folder selection as well.

Please let me know if you guys have any suggestions, I greatly appreciate. I'm still learning how to do this kind of stuff, so please forgive me again for having trouble with this.

I also understand that if I were to cluster the information in the Attributes column into single cells such as:


into one cell, then it is very simple, but I do need the seperation between cells due to the description column.

Excel 2007 :: Organize Data Into Lists?

Nov 1, 2013

I work as an alternative health practitioner and am making reference lists to use for working with various conditions. So far I've been using MS word and manually typing out everything into lists, but since that document is becoming hugely ungainly to work with (60+ double columned pages) I thought maybe there is an easier way to do this?

So my question is, can I use excel (or another program?) to do these things? And how would I go about doing them?

"Tag" various procedures with symptoms to alleviate. For example, can I tag Scalene trigger points (technique) with the symptoms brachial neuritis, extremity numbness, neck pain, elbow pain, wrist pain, shoulder pain, upper back pain, etc (some techniques will need 25+ symptom tags). Because of the large amount of "tags" I'll need to add, being able to quickly add them (for example, maybe typing them all in one cell separated by commas) is crucial Sort the data by symptom i.e "neck pain" and have all techniques tagged with "neck pain" show up in list form. Transfer all the data I already have sorted into the excel spreadsheet - for example I have a list of 100+ techniques for "neck pain", so I would need to be able to paste that list into excel and tag it with "neck pain" so it would show up along with anything added in excel. Be able to copy/paste the compiled list of techniques for each symptom into a document that I can print out and use as a reference at work. So for instance, be able to search "neck pain" copy the list of techniques for neck pain without including any extraneous data (such as all the tags) and paste it into ms word as text, not a table.

Edit: I have Excel 2007

Creating Tables In Spreadsheet Won't Let To Insert New Row?

I have a spreadsheet that I need to add new rows everytime I have a new client. I a formula in the N column and a formula in the F column that I would like to automatically insert itself into the new rows.

The problem is this: I have arranged my table so that I can look at clients alphabetically, and according to other date... BUT now it wont let me insert a new row when I have a new client!!!

Is there anyway of keeping it so that I can insert a new row into my table, but preserve all of the formulas that I want automatically put into both the F and N column?

Creating Multiple Pivot Tables Using VBA

Apr 1, 2009

I am having a lot of trouble with pivot tables in Excel 2007 VBA. I am trying to create pivot tables using macros (connected to buttons the user can press to create the pivot table) - please don't ask why, but i need to do this!!!

I used the record fuction in excel 2007 to produce macro code which will produce the required pivot tables when the user presses a button.

Unfortuanately the coding seems to work fine when i have one pivot table in a file but breaks down if i record code to produce another pivot table.

I have attached some code below (which was produced by the record function) and is intended to produce 2 seperate pivot tables (the macro submacro2 produces the 1st pivot table and the macro submacro4 lower down the page produces the 2nd pivot table). I have also indicated the point in sub 4 where the code breaks down - basically submacro4 just doesnt run!

Creating Summarized Product Lists?

Jan 28, 2013

I need a way to create summarized product lists from a large list of product.

Each product in the "full" list has the following rows: Product No., Name, Price, Quantity, Total.

I need the rows to copy to "sheet 2" when the total and/or quantity go above zero.

So on the new sheet I would end up with a list of products we need rather than having a whole sheet of all the products where the ones we need are mixed amongst the ones we don't.

Creating Lists Based On Category

Mar 6, 2009

The goal here is for users of this form to enter the "type" of tool and automatically create a list of tools based on the "type" in another sheet (NEW SHEET). See the heading on that sheet in the file for more info.

Also, keep in mind that this would be a template (.xlt) for 2003 and all the sheets would be individually locked -- password protected.

Since this form will be filled in by folks that aren't very computer savvy in general, I'm trying to make this as simple/automatic as possible. I myself have a limited toolbox as well. I'm not entirely sure a program would be needed (IF statements in the cells?)

Creating Dependent Dropdown Lists?

Sep 23, 2011

I am trying to get a listbox I created in from DataValidation to be dependent on another list.

For example, when I select Course 1 (a list item) from the Course List drop-down, I want the cost to auotmatically populate in the Cost drop-down (the other list).

How do I get this to happen? Here is the code I created in VB, and I am not sure if this is the right course of action:

Sub Automated()
Sheet1.Cells(2, 1) = "MATLAB"
If (Sheet1.Cells(2, 1) = "MATLAB") Then
Sheet1.Cells(2, 3) = "31"
End If
Sheet1.Cells(2, 1) = "INCA"
If (Sheet1.Cells(2, 1) = "INCA") Then
Sheet1.Cells(2, 3) = "41"
End If


I don't want to use the user form, however from VB. I want to use the regular drop-down. The code seems to work, but, each list item in the drop-down is not pulling the data I want it to. I need to activate the drop-down as a click event somehow. It's just recognizing the cell A2 as a whole and not the individual list items. I want to each list item to be their own object, and to automatically populate the cell C2 with their cost when they are selected.

Excel 2010 :: Find All The Data Tables In Workbook?

Aug 7, 2013

I am using Excel 2010. I am digging through a workbook with 80-some worksheets. There is one worksheet with 11 data tables. When the workbook refreshes, there is a note at the bottom saying something about 21 data tables. I am not sure where the other 10 are. In an online post, someone said that the Name Manager should show them. But in Name Manager, when I filter on Tables, the list goes blank, and all the icons are the same for the other named ranges. Is there another way to find the data tables?

Creating Lists Based On Values In A Table

Feb 16, 2014

I am trying to create an array formula that would list all the corresponding rows that contain a certain value.

Here is an example workbook to illustrate what I'm trying to accomplish:


I need to create a list/table that would show all the row labels that correspond to a value. For example, I need to make a list of all cells with a value of 1 under the "Green" column and list the row label(s) that correspond to 1.

Creating the list would result in following return values for "Green": A,C,E,F in separate rows.

I've been using [URL] ..... as a guide but the formulas did not return a corresponding row label. Pivot tables did not accomplish this either.

Is it possible to do without using an array formula?

Macro To Copy Data Within Excel Into Tables In A Word Document

Jan 25, 2010

Currently I am going back and forth between an excel document and a word document cutting and pasting values from the excel spreadsheet into tables in word. The task is a regular occurance therefore I wish to create a Macro that can automate this procedure. Both the excel and word documents are fixed templates therefore once a Macro is created it can be applied to all future work of similar nature.

Each table in the word document contains 6 rows of values in a single column. The excel data is arranged in a table that is 6 rows by x number of columns (how ever many sets of values there are for the particular job) therefore x determines how many tables must exist in the word document. I move between the excel and word document cutting and pasting each column into each table. This is not so time consuming if x=10 however on occasion x=100+ and it does take time.

Excel 2010 :: Import Data From Other Spreadsheets Into Multiple Tables?

Sep 13, 2013

I'm trying to create some vba code that will go into other .xlsx documents, pull all cells with a value in the first 30 columns and then return them as a table. Basically each work crew has a .xlsx spreadsheet containing their schedule and I am trying to bring them all together into one nice little package. If I go to import from external sources then click XML data, navigate to the folder they are in and them click show all files and pick my spreadsheet it imports nicely. Then I go to the next blank cell in column "A" and repeat for the 4 crews. Now I can filter by each crew but all 4 are visible on a single page as a table. I recorded a macro that shows everything I did, but it is not dynamic (the .xlsx source files name changes based on the month) I'm running XP sp3 with Excel 2010

Here is a copy of what I have


With ActiveSheet.ListObjects.Add(SourceType:=0, Source:=Array( _
"OLEDB;Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Password="""";User ID=Admin;Data Source=C:Documents and SettingsUSERNAMEDesktopSCHEDULE STUF" _

, _
"et OLEDB:Global Bulk Transactions=1;Jet OLEDB:New Database Password="""";Jet OLEDB:Create System Database=False;Jet OLEDB:Encrypt " _


Is there a better or simpler way to do this? The tables don't need to be forever linked to their previous spreadsheets so if copy/pasting is a better way than I am all for that as well.
