Nested Data Validation: Figure A To Enforce Dual Data Validation On A Single Cell?
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.
How To Validate If Data In A Cell Conforms To Data Validation Rules In The Cell
I have an Excel workbook which contains data entry fields, which have different types of data validation rules - like Lists, Date, Whole Number.
I do not want end users to remove these data validations as well as the formatting of these cells by doing copy/paste. So, I have implemented techniques mentioned in the following post, and elsewhere - to override the paste functionality and implement PasteSpecial values automatically.
To keep it simple, I'm only supporting pasting a single cell at a time.
Now my problem is this:
Doing the PasteSpecial values programmatically doesn't prevent the user from pasting values in the cell that violate the data validation rules. So, I can paste a string into a cell having data validation as Whole Number, or a invalid string into a cell having data validation as List.
The following post just suggests disabling paste whenever data validation is present:
But I would like to allow the paste operation if the value being pasted is a valid value for the cell's data validation.
Apply Data Validation If Cell Value Is < X
I'm building some work life balance spreadsheets for employees to show satisfaction levels / hours etc...
For the satisfaction piece - users will enter a value between 0 and 5 with 5 = happy as larry and 0 = ready to quit. Next to this field is a comments box. This comments box only needs to be populated (from a data validation list) if the staff are unhappy.
I need the file to prevent users entering a value less than 3.99 without selecting a comment from the validation list. Users will go into the file and update for their own lines so the check can be written into the save function maybe???
Data Validation Based On Cell Value
I am trying to set the data validation on a cell based on another cell value
So basically if the User enters say CAN in cell A2, cell B2 should use "listCAN" range as the data validation list
and if i enter US in A2, B2 should use "listUS" as the data validation list
Filtering Data Validation Based On Other Cell Value
I'm working on a few dynamic KPI charts and could use a little help with figuring out data valuation for the End Date value. In the attached workbook I am using data validation to pick a start date from a dynamic list (Dates) in E2:Exxx. Cell B2 has 2/8/2010 picked. I would like to have a drop down in B2 show the listing of all dates in E2:Exxx which occur after 2/8/2010, so the filtered list would be in the range E3:E49.
Using A Cell On Another Worksheet As Input For Data Validation
Situation: I have an Excel file with multiple worksheets. Each of these worksheets contain the same rules for data validation in a certain column (G).
Problem: If I want to add an item to the data validation lists I have to edit every single worksheet. I've tried making a seperate worksheet containing data validation items and using that as the source for the data validation rule, but Excel doesn't allow me to switch worksheets while defining the source.
In other words, I want to manage my data validation rules of multiple columns in multiple worksheets in one central location.
Reference Data Validation Cell From Another Workbook
I'm trying to link a range of cells in one workbook to a range in another workbook, both in a network drive. Everything is working out well except for the cells that have a data validation list on them. the formula linking one cell is ='G:Destination To[Workbook2.xls]SheetX!B13 so I'm just trying to get the value in the cell. I don't need the validation list to transfer just the value of what was selected. If I go to that cell and type something in then it transfers over just fine. If the validation list was used in Workbook2 then I get a #N/A in Workbook1 that is linking to the Workbook2 cell.
How can I link the cell with a data validation list in it to a cell in another workbook so that I can get the data in the cell (whatever was selected from the validation list)?......
Prevent Empty Cell With Data Validation
I'm looking for a formula which will enable typing (in cell A1) positive numbers between 0-1000000 but will prevent the user from leaving that cell in an empty state. Empty cell means: cell with space(s) or deleting the legitimate value that is, already, in it).
I must emphasize that I know how to handle this by VBA code and/or by using a "named" pre-defined list of values + un-checking the "ignore empty cell" option - but I would like to know, once and for all, the solution WITHOUT using Macro and/or 'List' (if any..)
I tried that, without success:
Data Validation: Multiple Formulas Required In 1 Cell?
I currently am using Data Validation drop-downs (which are identically referenced) in a number of cells (From J10 to J19). Each entry refers to a Crew departure &/or arrival time (based on an Aircraft schedule) and crew Subsistence & allowance ($17 per day). Referenced from “K10:K19” is USD currency:
“FULL-WEEK”(References 7 Days) = “USD 120.00”
“SATURDAY (DEPART)”(References 2 Days) = “USD 35.00”
“SATURDAY (ARRIVE)”(References 6 Days) = “USD 100.00”
“TUESDAY (DEPART)”(References 5 Days) = “USD 85.00”
“TUESDAY (ARRIVE)”(References 3 Days) = “USD 50.00”
I am trying to establish a way to specifically; select a particular day in the Data Validation drop-down menu (J10:J19) and a formula automatically converting the result to “USD Currency” for each of the 5 alternatives?
So in other words, each data validation cell will have 5 matching formulas pertinent to each specific orientation (Day)?
E.G.Select “FULL WEEK” from the drop-down option and “USD 120.00” is revealed / converted?
Select “SATURDAY (DEPART)” from the drop-down and “USD 35.00” is revealed?
... “SATURDAY (ARRIVE)” = “USD 100.00”
... “TUESDAY (DEPART)” = “USD 85.00”
... “TUESDAY (ARRIVE)” = “USD 50.00”
The closest I have managed (with no real success) is as per the following formula:
I would be so incredibly grateful if somebody could help me (in laymen’s terms)?
Lock Data Validation And Yet Permit Cell Editing?
What I'm trying to achieve is to be able to lock the text length of a column so that users can enter text data into that column but not exceed the allowable length for our purposes. I've found a way to use auto loading macros to make a popup if they exceed the set length.
However, that is useless for our purposes because 1) pasting data into the cells as opposed to manually entering data overrides the validation just as it does when you set it with the data validation menus, 2) it requires that macros be activated in the end user's computer which we cannot guarantee will happen. If you lock in the data validation by protecting the worksheet, the end user can't enter data. Do you know of a way to lock in the data validation without using active controls like macros, and yet allow the end user to enter data into the cells. (Perhaps a solution would be to somehow prevent the pasting of data into a cell forcing the data validation to be utilized?)
Convert Logic Function To Data Cell Validation
how can i use the data cell validation using the above function logic?
Data Validation - Cell Only Displaying First 4 Characters Of Listbox
Is there a way with "Data Validation" where the data that shows on the drop down box, when selected, only displays the first four characters on the cell. For eg In a worksheet, Row A1, A2 etc has got data validation settings whereby the value to be input in those cells comes from a list. The list looks something like this: 3000= Staff, 3001=Parking, 3200=Retail.
If I want to select for row A1 from the listbox - "3000=Staff" , what do I need to do to have only the value "3000" show up in cell A1 and not "3000=staff". The reason I only need the numbers to show up is because that will in turn be used in my vlookup function. The reason I am showing "staff, Parking, Retail" in my listbox is to give users additional information as a guidance to choose the correct code for those cells.
Validation/Conditional Formatting Cell From Cell
Excel 2003 Scenario:
Column H contains text data as follows down the rows: BIKE/CAR/TRUCK.
Column N contains text data that would be entered free text by user down the rows; however, if the data entered in column N is not contained in column H it would warn the data is not contained in column H. Example: BOAT is not found in column H. Note; it could contain all text in column H for that row or just one word in column H for that row.
The goal is to recognize the text entered in column N is not contained in column H, warn and change the color of the text in column N to red.
I attempted to use Data/Validation, and Conditional Formatting; none seem to have a contain function.
Is there a formula or VBA I may use or any thoughts?
Validation Of Cell Value
I am making a spread sheet which contains drop down values and there is a grand total which should not exceed 100. Like distribution table in 100% type1 to type 10 and the total distribution should be 100% not less not more. how do i do the validate and indicate an error in case a wrong value is entered.
I've got a cell with a dropdown list using in-cell validation.
Unfortunately, the items in the list are a bit too small to read. Is there any way on increasing the text size and reducing the number of items shown at one time (currently 8 but 4 would be better)?
I need a code/formula/validation that needs to go in cell C3 and D3. If B3 contains the following, Transactional Accounts, Notify Me and Enhanced Notify Me than there has to be a number/reference number in C3 and D3. If there is no reference number than a warning needs to pop up informing them that they need to put in a reference number or ID number before they continue. If there is no reference number or id number they cannot move on, or something of that sort.
Look At Data From One Cell Reference Another Cell Then Display The Results From The Cell Next To It
I have 2 problems relating to LOOKUP.
Not sure if Excel can perform these calculations as they could get to complex.
Can it be possible to have excel look at data from one cell reference another cell then display the results from the cell next to it in another cell, sort of example:
Tab 1 (Never changes)
Tab 2 (Dynamic, changes each week)
So it would work as follows.
Tab2 column B will take Tab2 column A’s data check Tab1 column A and display Tab1 column B’s result.
Weekly league rank table that shows position movements week by week
Can Excel calculate/show the actual movements of league positions?
Cell Entry Validation
I am trying to force a user to enter a value (any value at all) into a cell once they have selected it.
So the cell is blank, then they click on it... then they can't move to the next cell until the enter some text.
Validation On A Calculated Cell
I am trying to input data validation on a calculated field. The calculated field (sum of 10 fields above it) must not total over 100%. I have used the following in the data validation menu: Allow: whole number. Data: less than or equal to 1
This doesnt seem to be working when I input values of a total greater to 100 from its input cells however, it does return an error if I manually input a number over 100%, then it gives me an error message. Edit - sample sheet attached.
Data Validation :: Selected From 4 Validation Lists
I would like to know if it's possible to populate a data validation list based on what is selected from 4 validation lists?
If 'Group1' is selected from data validation list1 then data validation list5 will show a list of all items from Group1. If 'Group2' is selected from data validation list2, then data validation list5 will display all the items in 'Group2'...
(I do not want to use a combo box for this)
Validation List From A Single Cell
First, I have read through the board, and I was not able to find a solution already posted. I apologize if in fact this is a duplicate.
Second, I am comfortable with dynamic lists, dynamic ranges, chained validation lists, etc: so I am pretty sure my question is not a repeat of the other recent validation list questions.
Is it possible to generate a validation list from a single cell with a comma separated list?
For example, if I have “Fresh, Cool, Hot, Neutral, Smooth” in given cell, can I then have those 5 items appear as separate choices in a validation list?
I have tried every combination I could think of using arrays, named lists, the INDIRECT function, etc. I cannot seem to get it to recognize them as separate items. For the moment, I have created a bad (too long/complex) workaround where formulas are used to pull out each of the 5 strings into individual cells.
Add Validation For A Perticular Cell
If we add validation for a perticular cell then excel shows arrow(a button) when ever u put cursor on that cell. if cursor is moved to another cell, it disappears.
Is it possible to display all cells that have data-validation with such buttons?
Validation Drop Down, Dependent Upon Another Cell Value
I am trying to create validation drop down list for a cell, however I want different drop down lists which are depenent upon another cell.
in Cell A1, I want the options "A", "B","C" etc
If cell A1 = "A", then drop down validation for cell A2 = 1,2,3,4,5
cell A1 = "B", then drop down in cell A2 now equal 6,7,8,9, 10
cell A1 = "C", then drop down in Cell A2 now equal 11,12,13,14,15
Configure A Cell For Color Validation?
I want to configure a cell in Excel for color validation and I don't know how to do it. What I want is to configure a cell with a drop-down list of colors only, so the user can select from a set of predefined colors. I know how to create a data validation list by placing characters in a verticle list of cells, naming the grouping, then use data validation using a list to provide user selection. I also know how to conditionally format the cell based on the value chosen from the list, e.g. if 'R' is chosen from the list, the cell color changes to red, and the 'R' from the named list is placed in the cell. What I want to do is choose from a list of colors and only place the color in the cell.
I tried using non-printing ASCII characters in the list but Excel does not accept them. I tried to color the cells that comprise the drop down list, but the colors do not show up in the drop down list, nor when a member of the list is chosen. All I want to do is have the user select from a drop down list of colors only.
Color Cell When Validation List Changes
I am trying to change the color of a cell to match a selection from a drop down data validation list. There are quite a few "color cells if ......" VBA codes out there, however they don't quite do what I need and I am not experienced enough to figure it out.
The data validation references a named range (list of consultants) on another worksheet within the same workbook. The data validation list needs to be dynamic because people get added or subtracted from the list. So the named range is actually equal to (A1:A100).
I am using Excel 2003, therefore conditional formatting is too limiting. Each company has it's own color. So I defined each company as a named range as well for my VBA code. For example, named range "AR" equals list Architect A, Architect B, Architect C etc.
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim Cell As Range
Dim Rng1 As Range
On Error Resume Next
Set Rng1 = ActiveSheet.Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeFormulas, 1)
On Error Goto 0
If Rng1 Is Nothing Then
Set Rng1 = Range(Target.Address)
This code works for the first name (Architect A) in the named range "=AR". However, when I choose the next name on the drop down list the color in the cell goes away. Also the other named ranges do not change color at all. I am attaching jpegs of the named range and the sheet they are referencing to give an idea of what I would like the sheet to look like.

Linking Partial Data From One Cell If Data In Another Cell Meets Requirements
The merged Cell B6:G6 will receive a ten-digit number followed by a dash and then one or more numbers. (For example: 1234567890-123)
Cell B15 will then receive data shortly afterwards. I already have a validation macro for this cell which allows either 'I' or 'I I I'.
Upon exiting Cell B15, merged Cell B16:H16 needs a macro which will check Cell B15 and if it contains 'I', Cell B16:H16 will display the data from the ten-digit number entered in Cell B6:G6 minus the first five digits. (For example: 67890-123)
Now the data in Cell B16:H16 can only be somewhat editable hereafter. It can be erased or replaced with numbers in smaller or greater digit combinations than five before the dash (i.e. 67890-123 can be replaced with 123456-7), and digits can be added after the whole group (i.e. 67890-123 & SEE DWG) without any error messages. But if any five-digit number with a dash and some numbers exist in Cell B16:H16, they must correspond with the number in Cell B6:G6 minus the first five digits.
However, if Cell B15 ever receives a 'I I I' afterwards, all data in Cell B16:H16 must be erased. Cell B16:H16 can never contain data if Cell B15 contains 'I I I'.
Also, if the data in Cell B6:G6 changes later on, the corresponding digits in Cell B16:H16 must change as well, even if there are digits after the whole group.
So here is an example of what a good macro would do for me: ...
Update A Validation List Based On Value Of Another Cell
In sheet 1, there are two columns, Category and Subgroup. The cell validation for Category is pulled from the category list on sheet 2. Basically, what I want to happen is depending on what is selected as the category, only the related sub-groups would be populated in the sub-group validation dropdown list. In other words, if Fruit is selected as the category, I only want Apple, Orange, Pear, Banana, etc to be in the validation drop down list for the sub group. If vegetable, then only Corn, Green Bean, Cucumber, and Peas should be shown.
I've included two options for the relationship list as I'm not tied to either style and not sure which would be easier to work with.
Validation To Force Cell Format On Entry
I have a spreadsheet that I add to daily with 3 Columns that are always the same. Name, ID number and Phone Number.
Is there a way to make it so that when other people in my department use this that no matter how they enter the name, it is always formatted the same. No matter they enter the ID number and phone number they are always formatted the same. I've tried some variations of data validation but couldn't get to where I need to be.
Attached is a simple example.
I'd like the name to always be formatted as Smith, Bob
I'd like the ID Number to always be formatted as xxx xx xxx
I'd like the Phone Number to always be formatted as xxx xxx xxxx
Cell Validation: Conditional Blank Value Prohibited
I would like to validate data but cant quite get the formula right. I have a cell (say F7) that cannot be blank if (say E7) another cell equals a text value (say "S"). Anyone have an idea? I am stumped at this seemingly easy task. I am applying the validation below to F7.
I forgot to add the valid combinations:
E7 = P and F7 = Entry: OK
E7 = P and F7 = Blank: OK
E7 = S and F7 = Entry: OK
E7 = S and F7 = Blank: INVALID
I have tried the formula: =IF(AND(E7="S",ISBLANK(F7)),1,0) within the validation window but blank entries are still allowed. I put this code in adjacent cells as a formula, the values are correct either 1 or 0.
Validation Formula To Prevent Spaces In Cell
I am in need of 2 validation macros (formulas) to enter into the validation criteria formula box when creating a custom validation.
1. A formula that will generate an error if there is a space in the text entry. Example:060107_Halo3CG prev.mpg would be an invalid entry due to the space after CG.
2. The same formula as above but this one also needs a 50 character limit added to the criteria.
Copy Paste Special As Values Based On Validation Cell Contents
Need VBA macro that will copy & paste (Special > AS VALUES) from one of two (Data A & B) sheets based on the contents of a validation cell ($D$4) in a third (Report) sheet? The destination starting cell would be $F$11. ALSO - I'd like to have the Named Ranges "DataAExtract" & "DataBExtract" used in the code (for the COPY region) so I can see an example of how to reflect my actual named ranges in my working file.
The reason for doing this is that the "c.Characters...." lines in my conditional formatting macros (attached) are not working on cells containing formula output (in my working file the Report page is all populated by VLOOKUP results), but the macros run fine on hard-coded values. In my attached workbook, I'd like to have the "NEW" macro for the copy & paste step fire first in the sequence of macros running after the FORM button-click (control located in cell $D$5 of the Report sheet), whether that's by writing a new macro and calling mine before the new one ends, OR by consolidating all of my macros plus the new one into one smooth progression.
With this low-tech approach I can get updated VALUES into the report area once the user selects a data source and a customer on the report sheet. The COPY ranges in my working spreadsheet will update based on the selections made in the report page. I tried recording a macro and then modifying the recorded code to add the "If > Then" functionality I'm looking for, but I'm pretty green when it comes to VBA code and syntax.
Copy Data From Cell In One Worksheet, Add Text, And Paste To Cell In Another Sheet
I have the following code in another workbook that is used to populate a cell on the same sheet based on input to cells in column 'A'.
Is it possible to modify this for the attached workbook to select a cell with data (numbers) on the Input Data sheet in column 'E', add text to the beginning, ('CG' in this case), and paste the result to the Import Template in the corresponding cell of column 'A'? I currently have a formula copied to dozens of cells in 'A' but since the number of rows for the Input Template is variable, there are usually cells in 'A' that contain CG but no corresponding data in the rest of the row.
Fill An Empty Cell With First Data Cell In The Same Column, Next Row(s) Down
I am looking for advice on how to move cells containing data (columns D to K in EXAMPLE A), upwards so that the information lines up with data already existing in columns A to C (to be included as part of an overall VBA routine).
In the upper example data in cell D2 needs to move upto D1, E3 to E1, F4 to F1, G7 to G1 etc and K9 to K1. Now, data on following rows is to move upto row 2 eg: E5 to E2, F6 to F2, G8 to G2.
The first 'block' of data starts at row 1 and finishes in this case at row 9.
The next 'block' of data starts at row 10 and finishes at row 18.
Row 19 shown is the start of the next 'block'. These 'blocks' may have upto 20 rows ....
Change Color Of Cell Range When Last Cell Receives Data
I need my worksheet to automatically fill in a range of cells (from Range B*:G*) with my yellow color once the last cell in the range (G*) receives data, and automatically switch back to no color if the data in Cell G* is erased. However, if somebody merges a range, it should appear as it would by default - as if no macro exists, if that makes sense. I've attached a sample worksheet.
