I have , within a workbook multiple worksheets which have multiple cells with a certain DATA VALIDATION MESSAGE. I am trying to write a macro to sum up all those cells which have a common DATA VALIDATION MESSAGE.
I currently have 6 cells that Have a Validation Criteria of a "List". I'm using the Input Message on the Data Validation box. I need to have this Input Message Pinned to a specific area on my worksheet. Each time that I exit and reopen the file the Input Message returns to the Area around the dropdown box. The input message is different for each of the 6 cells.
Cells A1 to A10 contain names of different cars, what i would like to do in VBA is when i select any individual cell to the right of these the name of the car appears as a message (as if i had gone DATA -> VALIDATION -> INPUT MESSAGE -> CARS NAME).
Tried positioning a Userform next to the active cell but when i scroll down the page and select a cell the userform is to far down the screen to be seen.
I have multiple data validations with input messages. For the new user, this is handy, but for the person that does this a lot, they get in the way. When I open the sheet, I can move one message to the side of the page and the rest of them come up at the same spot but when I save, exit, and reopen, the message comes up beside the cell and I would like it to always stay to the side of the page.
code that will be able to lookup a cell in Column J of Sheet1 by using a lookup value on Sheet2. The lookup value can be any cell in columns B, D, F, H, J, K, or N on Sheet2. The tricky part is, I want the result of this lookup (the result comes from Column H of Sheet1) to be placed as a data validation input message for the cell directly to the right of the lookup value when this cell is clicked.
For Example: Lookup Value is "416991" which lies in cell N8 on Sheet2. Look it up in Column J of Sheet1 and return the appropriate value "X" from Column H of Sheet1. "X" will then appear as an input message when cell O8 of Sheet2 is clicked.
is it posible to control the positioning of the pop-up data validation input messsage box via vba? As often it obscures the view of critical cells below. You can manually click and drag it to a desired position manually. Mana users are not aware of that. It would be desirable to reposition it elsewhere rogramatically.
I am using data validation input messages for data entry tips/definitions. The data entry cells are grouped in small tables (about 5 rows X 6 columns) so when the user clicks on a cell, the data validation input message box pops up next to the active cell. This covers the adjacent cells which need to be completed as well.
If I drag the message box over to right of the input table, the messages for the other cells stay in the new location as well. However, Excel doesn't remember this location the next time the workbook is opened.
Is there a way to set the location of the message box or some other way to achieve the same objective of having text boxes pop up in a defined location when a cell is activated?
I thought what I wanted would be simpler than I have found. What I am trying to achieve is for any user trying to enter anything other than a "Y" into a cell would get an error message. In a nutshell I have in column A colleague names and from there 7 columns representing the days of the week split by a "spacer" column. This goes on for seven 4 week periods followed by a column that calculates how many "Y"s and into a formula that gives a running percentage.
My problem is that as there are several people that input data, some put multiple "Y"s so making the formulas throw up erroneous figures. That is why I am after a simple solution to stop any entry other than a "Y". I am guessing this would be better done via macro code?
I have an input msg for a cell (in the data validation box). Whenever the cell is selected, it pops up the message box right by the cell, is there any ways we can position the msg box at our discretion? I can drag it down while the cell is selected but even if I save the file and re open and then select the cell, the msg box pops up right by the cell and not the place where i had dragged it earlier.
When I use list validation with name (Data validation List. Inseret name difine) and then trying to write manualy a differnt value (not from the relevant list) I am not being warned like I get when I choose a list . And then even when I have a list or a Name If I copy a diffrent value I am not being warned.
Excel spreadsheet, that contains several columns. Three of these columns contain text data that is selected by using a simple drop-down menu sourced from a list. If an attempt is made to enter text data not in the associated list an error message is displayed. Easy so far.
I need need to extend the text data validation across all three columns so that only specific combinations of the text in the three columns can be used which is reflected in a further list. These combinations will be counted elsewhere and so needed. Therefore, if i attempt to enter a combination of text columns that is not reflected in the list, this too will present an error message stating 'combination not valid', or words to this effect.
I have a spreadsheet which I have formatted with validation rules for each cell. I have protected the sheet so that only certain cells can have info entered.
I also have a second spreadsheet with a bunch of data. If I copy this data and Paste Special it into my specially formatted sheet (Values only), all of the data copies over regardless of my preset validation rules.
I would like error messages to pop up for every incorrect value though.
I have to input data into "ANYDATA" field. Since I need this input to be 100% accurate, I would like my operator to input it TWICE. E.g. 1st input - Obama 2nd input- Obama. Only if BOTH the entries match will the data move into ANYDATA field, else the field becomes blank once again, and the operator has to re-key twice again. In example above, if he had input 2nd time as Obame, then he will have to repeat the process. Can anyone pls help me create suitable formula/ field settings...Thx! Preferably, I would NOT like to create two dummy fields "ANYDATA1" and "ANYDATA2" with corresponding entry in "ANYDATA" if both match.
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.
I have four cells c1 thru c4. The SUM of these cells must equal 1. I want to display an error message "sum of cells not equal to 1.0" but only when data has been entered in all four cells.
For instance =SUM(C1:C4, "<>1") should display the error message. Is there a way to write the formula with an IF statement and still use data validation with error message box?
Assumptions: -Will ignore blanks -Error message "Sum of cells are not equal to 1.0" until values in all four cells have been entered, not after a value is entered in a cell. (validate expression after all four cells have values or blank)
Scenarios: c1 = .25, c2 is blank, c3 = .25, c4 = .50 TRUE no error message should displays c1 = .25, c2 = .25, c3 = .25, c4 = .50 TRUE no error message should displays c1 = .25, c2 = .30, c3 = .25, c4 = .50 FALSE error message should display after value is entered in c4 etc
What I don't want is for the error message box to display after .25 is entered in c1 because the user is still in the process of adding values. Can this be done using Data Validation in Excel 2010?
I'm trying to make the included spreadsheet as idiot proof as possible as a lot is a stake. I have most functionality working well; however, not I would like to add a little more data validation that does not exist in the normal cell validation rule set.
I need all the input cells to validate that the cell contains the word "BOX" upon entry, otherwise throw a warning. This is because the data entry will be done by barcode and there are a couple barcode labels on each box. The one I want will include the word "BOX" somewhere in the code sequence.
Since a previous function in the Code locks the cell, they wont be able to fix the error. but it will alert them so they can make sure to scan in the proper barcode and not miss the box. Also, once I get something that works in the code, where would I put it? In the same code box as the previous script, underneath it, or somewhere else? So, bottom line, I need a script that check the cell for Text of "Box" otherwise throw a message box.
In the spreadsheet shown below I would like the user to select a project via a dropdown list in cell B2 which is from the data set shown in row 7 downwards. Then based on the project they select, they need to be able to see all of the locations associated with that project and choose in B3. Finally they then need to be able to select a team which is associated with the project & location combination chosen in cells B2 and B3.
I would like to delete a column using data validation list. for example :
i have a data validation INPUT list in cell A1 (Part No., Supplier 1, Supplier 2, Supplier 3) the heading start from B2,C2,D2,E2,F2. If user select Supplier 1 from data validation list in cell A1, the column Supplier 1 [c2] should be deleted.
And/or also if in cell B1 have a data validation INPUT row list (Part no.) & if user select part no., the selected part no. row should be deleted.
I am trying to restrict a cell to only be able to input the letter "i" multiple times, almost like a tally sheet, in other words I want the cell to be restriced to one letter, but allow that letter to be entered multiple times.
Below is a message box with an input bar inside the message box. I am able to put a prompt message on top of the input bar but i am finding it difficult to enter another message underneath the box. I want to have the text "Continue?".
This is what the promt message with the input box looks like : Untitled.png
So basically right underneath the input bar i would like to have the word "Continue?"
I've just started using Excel and everything is really confusing. I can't make sence of the online help or the various boards. Hopefully anyone can atleast make some sence of my question.
I don't know about combability issues but I think we have Excel97 / Swedish version at work and at home I have the English 2007 version so mostly I will try to do as much I can at home but it have to work at my job computer.
Anyways I want to create a sheet where users can input data, something like this
Date : automaticly show the current date but the option to change it Time : and dropdown menu where I can choose day, evening, night and Some various fields where the users can input some settings.
And somehow the ability to submit the data into another sheet and clear all input when done automaticly. with every submit it should add another row with information in the other sheet.
I am looking for is VB code to firstly have a message box with an input box on (that bit i can do). The text and number put into the message box is then used to search the table for the information that relates to it.
The ideal would be for the code to find the data and then copy it either to the clipboard or to a section of the workbook.
The tables I am searching can be put into which ever format is easiest. Below is an example table;
I have got a macro link to a button - but I would like a box to pop up saying warning do you want to do this etc etc - the person has to then yes in the box (then potentially) click on ok for the rest of the macro to run. As a fall back there would be a cancel option on the box.
I want to inform my users via a message box if they have not entered the previous month's information. The months are populated via a User form using a combo box selection. The months start from April through to March and are entered into the worksheet range ("aa3").
Data is entered monthly by the team. I don't know how to begin with this. I've managed to inform them when they've already entered that months information, but I don't know where to begin with this.
Is the an easy way (ie, No VBA) that can have a form (similar to this one [URL]) and then extract the input data to a regular table look spreadsheet with the column heads at the top that match the form, Name, Hotel costs, Date, etc?
