Data Validation: How Can I Stop The User From Moving On?

Apr 3, 2009

I have attached a sheet that I'm having an issue with. Columns D and E on the Dim Calculator sheet have a data validation formula in the cell. It works in the sense that it pops up if they are outside the parameters that I want them to hit. However, if the user clicks the Cancel button they can just keep going on even though the entry in the cell is aganist the validation.

Example: Columns D and E cannot be larger than Column C. Currently now if Columns D or E are larger than Column C the validation error pops up. But I can just click on cancel and keep going. That is what I want to prevent.

Is there a way to grey out the cancel button?

Should I do something else within the validation itself?

Validation Data: Stop Typos & Spelling Mistakes

Oct 29, 2006

I have a spreadsheet that I'm using for a college football pool. We have almost 100 players, and have it set up for each player to pick up to 20 games each week. There is a sheet for each week of the season. Now, I copy each players picks from a message board and paste them under that players name. My problem is, that some people don't spell the teams correctly or abbreviate when they were told not too. This leads to them missing the points because excel sees it as a wrong entry. What I wantto accomplish is setting up some way to have excel verify the spelling is correct when the players entries are pasted in the sheet. I would also like it to auto-correct errors it finds...say a player types in Ohio St. but the winner is entered as Ohio State...This would be seen as a wrong entry for Ohio St. so I want excel to recognize it and correct it. Also simple spelling errors as well...

Allow User To Automatically Add Data To Data Validation List

Oct 27, 2009

I am trying to learn the concepts, then apply them to a set of actual worksheets. I am trying to use named ranges from one worksheet in another worksheet. The named ranges need to expand. Although I can get the add data to a dummy worksheet to work within the same worksheet and I can even get a named range to work in the foreign sheet.

My problem is, when I can end up adding the additional data to the named range, it will only add one name. I have a number of named ranges that are referenced on various worksheets. The idea is, certain named ranges should be able to expand so I donft have to type them all in. (There could be hundreds of manufacturers or models.) I would also like them to be able to sort themselves after additional names are added to the named ranges. I would also like them to auto populate as well. I am using Excel 2003 SP3 (11.8307.8221). I have enclosed the file. Drop down lists (named ranges) are on the worksheet called DROP DOWN LISTS (LOCKED) **ITfS NOT CURRENTLY LOCKED**.

The data validation issues are on the worksheet called Rev7.0 Wood (Basic Sheet.) There are other instances to use these, but I hope to learn to do them myself on the other worksheets. Of particular interest is Column f.................

How To Insist User To Fill In Cell With A Value For Data Validation

Oct 4, 2012

I have a file where I need the user to fill in a value in a single cell (A1) in order for the data validation I have set up in column B to work. Can I set up a second data validation in the cells in column B? Or is there a way to enter a data validation in cell B11 that would error the user if A1 is not filled in, and circle the cell (A1) that they need to fill in? B11 currently returns the sum of B3:B10.

Excel 2010 :: Data Validation - Restrict Value User Can Enter Into A Cell

Oct 2, 2012

I'm using Excel 2010, and I need to restrict the value the user can enter into a cell (E9).

In cell E3 is the screen width (pixels). eg 6024
In cell E5 is the preferred width of a window. eg 450

The user, in cell E9, enters an x coordinate for which they prefer the top left corner of the window whose width is specified in E5.

If the value that the user enters in E9, added to the width entered in E5, exceeds the value of E3, (if E9+E5 > E3) then the value should be disregarded (window will be off right of screen) and the user re-enter.

I'm not familiar with the use of data validation, so I'm uncertain as to how to use it in this circumstance.

Named List: Data Validation To Restrict The User To Only Selecting Values In A List

Jun 15, 2007

I'm trying to use data validation to restrict the user to only selecting values in a list which I create. Right now, the list is a named range. I'd like to get rid of the range and just use a named list. I create a name using the following as my list.

Insert > Name > Create
Name: Fruit

Refers to:
banana,apple,orange

When I try to use the name Fruit in my data validation, I get the message "The List Source must be a delimited list, or a reference to single row or column." I thought my name "fruit" was a delimited list.

Template Excel File - Stop User From Saving

Oct 3, 2008

I have a template excel file that is loaded with macros. When the file is opened, a userform opens and the user makes several different selections. Based on the selections, the excel file is populated with information and pictures. I want to make sure that the user does not accidentally save over the template file when he/she is finished with the document.

My original solution was: when the user opened the excel file, it would automatically save under a different name in a temporary location. This would stop the user from being able to overwrite the source file. The users were not happy because the excel file is very large and takes a long time to save.

on another method to stop the user from overwriting the source file? using code? or another method?

Nested Data Validation: Figure A To Enforce Dual Data Validation On A Single Cell?

Aug 19, 2009

I'm trying to figure a to enforce dual data validation on a single cell. That is, I need to restrict the user to entering only a decimal value, only if a particular other cell (say A2) is blank. To put it another way, if A2 is blank, the user can enter a decimal value, but if A2 is not blank, the user cannot enter anything. I can use Data Validation to enforce either the decimal restriction or the ISBLANK, but I'm not sure how to make them work together.

Numeric Validation Of User Form Textbox

Aug 13, 2008

I want one procedure that will validate the CURRENT textbox (not named by name, to allow for the procedure to be included in the change event of several different textboxes), to see if it is numeric (decimal places allowed) in Excel 2007.

I followed the instructions here: {url}, which describe exactly what I want to do. So I put the final procedure listed on that page (the dynamic validation code) into the private module of the user form object as listed below:

Private Sub pipes_Change()

OnlyNumbers

End Sub

Private Sub OnlyNumbers()
'This procedure checks to see if the value
'of the current textbox is a number or not

If TypeName(Me.ActiveControl) = "TextBox" Then

If Not IsNumeric(.Value) And .Value <> vbNullString Then

MsgBox "Sorry, only numbers are allowed."

.Value = vbNullString

End If

End With

End If

End Sub

I then ran the form and typed a number into the "pipes" textbox that had been validated. A compile error is thrown: "Invalid or unqualified reference", highlighting the ".Value" portion of IsNumeric. I tried to remove certain parts of the code, such as the IF statement and the "And .Value <> vbnullstring", but nothing works. I have a feeling it is because this code was created for Excel 2003 (though I'm not certain).

Prevent The User From Saving The Data Input From The User Form If Any Of Those Three Fields Is Left Blank

Feb 9, 2010

I have a user form that has a combo box "City" two text boxes one called "Flight" and the other "Date". What I'm trying to do is to prevent the user from saving the data input from the user form if any of those three fields is left blank. The code that I have so far checks all of the required fields, if any are left blank a message notifys which field(s) is left blank and return the focus back to that field. But the rest of code also fires.

What I really need is either to stop the code if any fields are blank and return the focus back to the blank field, the user completes the field(s) and clicks the save again, or better yet, pause the code until all the required fields are completed and then complete the save. (There is actually another 200+ lines of code in this sub, but I deleted it to keep the post a little shorter.)
