I am running into an odd issue and hope someone might be able to shed some light. I have created several lists on one sheet in a workbook and have assigned named ranges to each individual list. So far, so good.
On various other worksheets, I have created Data Validation rules to allow users to select the relevant data from drop-down lists. (using formulas such as =List1, =List2, etc. in the Source box to capture the named ranges I had created).
Everything works perfectly...EXCEPT for one worksheet, which continues to give me the error message, "You may not use references to other worksheets or workbooks for Data Validation criteria." Can anyone explain why this error would only occur on one worksheet and work fine for all the other sheets? I'm perplexed!
Originally I had a file with multiple tabs to sort data, this was becoming very ineffective so what I have done is modified the original WB posted into the desired new format. The WS PSM-04-03A is a vlookup based report that used to pull data from each tab based upon the WS Name (the code is still their) what I have done is combined the WS and made a column(ColumnD) for what used to be the WS Name. All WS have besides "Home" and "PSM-04-03A" have been combined into 1 WS and the title for the data from the original sheet names was added to columnD of "Recommendations" in the new file. (i.e. I did not add all files just some so you could see what I was getting at).
So using the two WBs as an example the Isomeration Unit/MEK Dewaxing Unit/ROSE Unit tabs have been combined into one tab and a new columnD added to signify what used to be done with the "tab". Now if you look at the validation on WS "PSM-04-03A" on the first WB it utilizes the WS Names to populate a list in cell A4 and cell C4 then populates with all columnA items from that WS. Now that I have combined the data I still need the validations to populate the same. So A4 in the new WB would populate with all non repeats of the unit in ColumnD of the WS "Recommendations" and then cell C4 would populate with the filtered columnA results based upon the columnD choice.

I am attempting to put a drop down list using "Data Validation". I can get it working when my list is on the same sheet (sheet 1) and the column of cells I want the drop down list to show up in....(you know..when the drop down list shows up in each individual cell)......BUT...when I put the list on another sheet (sheet 2) and try to do the "Data Validation" back on sheet 1, excel won't let me go highlight the list on sheet 2.
I even tried writing sheet2 and the range and that still doesnt work.
I have 2 columns First Name & Surname. What I want to do is create a data validation list on the surname which results in the 2nd data validation list only showing the first names which link to one of the surnames.
i.e. If I selected Smith in the 1st validation list then I would only like to see 'Paul' as an option in the 2nd list
I would like to create a drop down list. So far I have done this using Data/Valadation. I like this method alot, but would somehow like to put the data on a seperate sheet in the workbook. Data/Valadation doesn't enable this. Anyway around this?
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.
I have a List of Different Fruits in Cells A1 to A5
Apple Banana Orange Strawberry Cherry
And I use data validation list in 5 different cells from Cells C1 to C5 then in every cell the list will show all the fruits,
But I want that if I select Any Fruit in cell C1 that should not be included in the remaining 4 cells, and the fruits selected in Cells C1 and Cell C2 should not be included in the remaining 3 cells and so on....
I Used the formula
But this works fine if I select Apple in the Cell C1, then the List of C2 Shows all Fruits other than Apple, But if in Cell C1 I select any fruit other than Apple it does not work... (Using Excel2007 & Win XP)
I need to get data copied from sheet1 to sheet2 depending on selection in a validation list.
The data is on the same row and all the same range. So it would look something like this. A B C Fruit Orange Apple Pear Veg Potato Carrot Onion Animal Bear Cow Dog
I have the data in A in a dynamic range and validation list. I need all the data copied from the specific rows ie choose Animal from the validation list in Sheet2!A1 and the entire row Bear Cow Dog get copied to Sheet2!B1, Sheet2!C1, Sheet2!D1.
The second problem I think is a lot more complex. So the same scenario above but this time its a multi select on Sheet3. I need to be able to select two (or more depending on Fruit and Animals to display in A1, A2 and then their valid options to appear in B, C and D
The idea is to create a liquor order sheet which takes items and prices from a liquor inventory workbook, which is part of the same file. i'm sure that you can do it all fancy with a macro, but unfortunately i'm not super experienced with excel. so i helped myself with what i know a bit -> drop down lists. I created an extra sheet which has 4 ranges on there... the liquor type (liquor, beer, wine), and the 3 sub classes for each type (red/white/blush/sparkling for wine, draft/import for beer and so on and so forth). On the inventory i named the range of all white wines "white", of all red wines "red" ..
On my order sheet i created a drop down list for type and created 2 more via "indirect" .. so when you select "wine" in the first one, the 2nd one will ask you for white/red/blush/sparkling and the last drop down then for the exact item according to the range on the inventory.
Hope what i did so far is understandable ^.^
Now my problem is that i want the unit cost to be copied when an item is selected. So you select "beer" in A1, "import" in A2, "corona" in A3... and the price for corona (which is written in a cell on the inventory sheet) should show up in A4.
I attached a screen of the inventory sheet so that you can see how it is structured.
I have a workbook that uses data validation from a list. The same list is used in several of the individual sheets. Can one use just one list for different sheets, as I'm having to create separate list for each sheet, which when an overall change needs to be made it is easy to miss one.
I want to load the actual data exist in the rows by selection value from the data validation list.
E.g I have two worksheet in one excel file. One has a data activities of persons with their name like two columns i have in which one exist the name of person and second exist the activities which they perform.
On the second sheet, i made a data validation list of all the person names
Now my requirement is, when i select a person name from the list, load all the data from the 1st sheet to second sheet. Is this possible without VB code, because I want to share it on the Google sheet with my boss, where VB sheet is not supposed to work.
I have a cell "project titles" entered in sheet1 that populates into sheet 2 - column "Project titles".
I need to keep the values in this column unique. So can I create a data validation such a way that I won't be able to enter values into this cell that are already on the list. This way I can avoid entering duplicates.
I am trying to create a data validation list with a bar graph. I have tried using the IF and Vlookup formula, but its not working for me. I would like to be able to select classroom # from the drop down menu and the bar graph update selected with student’s name and selected data information. I have attached the file.
I am trying to set the below table up as a validation list. I am having issues with putting it in as list as it creates a new line every time a “,” (comma) occurs. I know I can use the custom and pull the list from a table, but I can’t use this option (the reason I can’t use the table, if interested, is because the single sheet with the validation contains about ~35,000 line items that are being split up into ~200 different sheets. Each sheet is then sent as a separate email…the problem with using the table is that it would on a different spreadsheet to begin with. The email only sends one sheet. As such, it would no longer be able to reference the table).
A - Less than $25,000 B - Between $25,000 and $49,999 C - Between $50,000 and $99,999 D - Between $100,000 and $249,999 E - Between $250,000 and $499,999 F - Between $500,000 and $999,999 G - Over $1,000,000
Workbook1 contains validated list which is defined by a Range name and also its data is pulled from workbook2. I am unable to change the value of the validated list from drop down when i close workbook2, infact the validation drop down list do not drop at all so that can select values from it. But if i open the workbook2 i am able to change the values of the validation list.
I want the dropdown list to be active when i close the second workbook.
Can I have a cell rage.. say A2:E20...and every cell in it has a drop down data validation list, from data inputted into L2:L27 (For examples lets say L2 is A, L3 is B, L4 is C, L5 is D and so on).
if somewhere in the range A2:E20, say B6 I was to select D from the drop down list, I want the remainder of the cells in range A2:E20, to have the drop down list without the value D in it, and so on, so the more cells in the range I fill from the list, the list for empty cells gets smaller and smaller until there are none left.
