Data Validation To Ensure Like Numbers In Cell A Has Same Date In Cell B

Jan 10, 2008

I am trying to set up a data validation to ensure that when a user enters a number in column A that matches a previously entered number in column A, the user is only allowed to enter the same date for the number it matches in column B.

For example, if:

Row 3 column A = 1320


Row 3 column B = 16-Dec-07


Row 15 column A = 1320


Row 15 column B must be 16-Dec-07

Copy Cell Value To Cell On Different Tab That Has Data Validation

Sep 11, 2013

I have a cell in Sheet1, C5 that is a formula that returns one of 2 values.

I have a macro that copies and pastes values from this sheet into Sheet2, however I cannot get the cell V3 in Sheet2 to have the value of C5 in Sheet1.

There is a data validation list of 3 choices in V3, two of which are available from Sheet1 C5, but I want the 3rd option to remain manual.

I have been playing around with it and even tried the manual recorder, but no luck

Here are some of my attempts:

Sheets("template").Cells(3, 22).Value = Sheets("New Details").Cells(5, 3).Value


Range("V3").Value = Sheets("New Details").Range("C5").Value

Neither of which have the desired effect.

Validation/Conditional Formatting Cell From Cell

May 16, 2008

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?

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.

How To Validate If Data In A Cell Conforms To Data Validation Rules In The Cell

Oct 14, 2009

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.

Cell Validation?

Jul 22, 2009

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.

Validation On A Calculated Cell

Jan 27, 2010

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.

Changing One Validation Cell Should Reset Another?

Nov 12, 2013

My sheet has a Data Validation drop down menu "Department", where the user selects a Department. Based on this selection, another Data Validation cell "Team Leader" gives a list of Team Leaders to choose from. This works perfect. Change the Department, you get a different list of names. The problem is that if I have both a Department and a Team Leader selected, and then I change the Department selection, it keeps the Team Leader cell filled with now invalid data (the Team Leader from the previous department). If I then click on the Team Leader cell, it has the correct names listed to choose from, but until I do that cell retains the old information. Is there any way to blank the "Team Leader" cell, or push data to it (I've included a Choose a Team Leader entry in my list of people), when I change my Department selection?

Validation List From A Single Cell

Jan 4, 2008

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.

Apply Data Validation If Cell Value Is < X

Feb 2, 2009

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???

Configure A Cell For Color Validation?

Jul 8, 2006

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

Apr 18, 2008

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.

Add Workbooks only, not silly PDF files with pictures!

Cell Validation Code (If Then Else) Not Working As Required

Jul 10, 2012

I have the following code to check the date of birth entered into cell C18 and to alert the inputter if the age is either under 16 or over 25.

Sub AgeValidation()
Dim age As Integer
Dim dob As Range
Dim AgeMsgAnswer16 As String
Dim AgeMsgAnswer25 As String

[Code] .....

It works to some extent in that the correct message box pops up if the age is under 16 and similarly if over 25. If answering Yes on either message box then the correct thing happens. Its what happens if the inputter selects No thats not right. If the age is under 16 and the user selects No in answer to "Is this correct?" then the code is clearing the cell contents and showing the calendar again but is also popping up the 'Over 25' validation message box which then won't go away until Yes is selected. Also there are then multiple copies of the calendar open.

What I need the code to do is look at the date selected from a popup calendar in c18 and decide if that age is within the 16-25 year old range. If it is outside that then the inputter needs to be alerted to it. I can't use the inbuilt data validation because there are some scenarios where it would be acceptable to have an age outside of that range but we want to cover inputting errors as well as double checking the age.

When a msgbox pops up to alert the inputter and they choose "Yes" to say the date of birth is correct then I want the focus to go to cell C20 ready to input the next piece of information.

When the inputter selects "No" on the message box, then I want the original date to be deleted and the calendar to reappear so they can select another date. So effectively resetting the field so they can start again choosing a date like when they first entered the cell.

Data Validation List Based Off Cell Value

Apr 25, 2014

I'm trying to have a Data Validation list issue where I want to populate a second list based upon the value of the first list.

In this instance I have a Department in the drop down and Employee Name in the second drop down and I want people to only see Employee names if they're allocated to a particular Department. I've been able to do the list using the INDIRECT function, however that only works when there's only a small sample of both names & depts, however I'm looking at populating this document with around 3000 people and over 250 departments, so I would like to be able to use Column J on the Source Tab to populate the details on the Manager Entry tab.

I have attached a sample spreadsheet if I've not explained very clearly.

Multiple Data Validation Entries Into One Cell

Jun 2, 2014

Is it possible to create a formula using a Data Validation List where it will add a new entry to the existing entries in a cell?
For example: I have a data validation list with the names of Pete, Chris, Bruce, Carly, Megan, and Becky. With the normal data validation set I can select one entry and it will be output into the designated cell. If I select Bruce then Bruce with be placed in the cell. Is it possible to set it up so that each time I click on data validation it will add an entry to the already existing entry? E.g. I have already selected Bruce then I decide to add Becky, I want the output cell to show both Bruce and Becky.

I know I can do this with a formula that will place all the results from different cells into a single cell, but I would then have to create multiple data validation entries of which I would rather avoid if possible. Not to mention I don't remember how to do this formula anyway......

Data Validation Dependent On Another Cell Being Completed?

I've got a password protected spreadsheet with only certain cells unlocked to allow users to complete them. I need the following to work on Excel versions 2003, 2007 & 2010.

Cell E3 has a drop down list with types of car to choose from. One of the car types is "Pool_Car".

Cell D12 should only be used if "Pool_Car" is selected from the drop down list. If any other car type is selected, and the user tries to enter a figure in D12, I need an error message to appear.

E3 & D12 are unlocked cells.

I'm happy for D12 to become locked & only allow it to be unlocked if "pool_car" is selected, but I've looked elsewhere, but can't find VBA or data validation to work.

Update A Validation List Based On Value Of Another Cell

Mar 5, 2009

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.
