A list in A2 of Sheet 1 of workbook has values "Select", "Yes", "No". How can I get the functionality using VBA so that until a certain rule is met (say A1 becomes 1) selection of items in the list is disabled? (Or any selection of items in the list returns a value of select only?
I am trying to create a fairly simple spreadsheet with about 8 columns and about 400 rows. One of the columns features a drop-down list with about 8 or 9 different options. Dependant on which option is selected, i would like the entire row to change colour with that option.
For example: FAILED - whole row changes red SUCCESSFUL - row has no fill Tested - row changes to orange
I have a large set of data that I need to use for data validation in drop down lists. The data is arranged in 4 columns and entries within each column may repeat numerous times. The four columns are as this..
Category Subcategory 1 Subcategory2 Subcategory3
The first data validation will come from the first column. Once this is chosen the second drop down should populate with the subcategory that correspond to that category stored in column 2. once that is chosen the thrid data validation should populate with the corresponding subcategory from column three etc.. This is a small sample of the data in the columns.
I have been searching through the site trying to find a solution to my issue, but I just can't seen to fixt it. Here is the scenario. I am working on a spreadsheet that will read some data, use that data to update the main chart and fill in the information in a table next to that chart. I recoreded 22 macros, total. Each macro corresponds to the especific type of chart that I need/want.
I want to be able to click on a drop down menu above the chart which will have each of the 22 options. Once the user clicks on the desired option, the specific macro will run and do that it should do. When I run the individual macro (without the VB that I wrote and will mention below), the system does what it should do. Everything looks dandy. But then I added this VB code to the sheet where the chart is:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Select Case Target.Range("A12").Value Case "1" Call a Case "2" Call b Case "3" Call cc Case "4" Call d Case "5" Call e................
I'm using Excel 2007. I would like to seek some advise on how i may update cells after selecting a month from a drop down list.
i have created a simplified version of what i intend to have. One the 1st tab 'Cash Budget 2009', i have filled up a table with numbers, sorted by months. On the 2nd tab 'Dec09', i would like to create an expense table, to be able to be selected by month. So i have created a drop down list based on the months that are created in the 1st tab.
Upon selection of the month from the drop down list, i would like the cells to display (fetch) the data from the 1st worksheet. It would also be helpful if the name of the 2nd tab can be updated to read as the month that is being selected.
I've created seven names in my data validation source list on Sheet 3 in the following range of cells, A2-A7. My data drop down validation list is located on Sheet 1, A2 in the same workbook. I would like to trigger a macro based on the name I select in this drop validation drop down list that will fill out an address, telephone number, and email address in the following cells next to my data validation drop down list on Sheet 1: B2, B3, and B4. I want it to be designed so that users will select a name and have that person's corresponding address, telephone number, and email address fill right next to their name on the same sheet.
I am working on a project where user has to select an item from a listbox, however there is a condition that if user select an item, other items of listbox should be disabled so that he/she can not select any other item.
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.
Is there a way to disable all error pop up messages from coming up due to an invalid entry in a cell that has data validation? So when a user types in a value, it doesn't pop up saying "retry, cancel, etc"? Just to save time and make it more user friendly, it would be nice to just dis-allow the entry, so when someone types an incorrect entry it just erases it or stays on the cell and keeps it highlighted but doesn't let you click away...something like that. This would be applied to the whole workbook and is for XL07.
I have two fields that do the same thing [preset selection vs custom entry], and I need to restrict one from holding any data if the other already does. One field is a drop-down menu, and the other is a decimal entry. It was easy to restrict the decimal from being entered if a drop-down selection has already been made - Data Validation prevents any entry unless the drop-down cell is blank. It's not so easy to restrict the drop-down, however, as it already uses List-type Data Validation to allow only values from a specified range.
Does anyone have any ideas for allowing the drop-down to function as normal if a specific other field or range is blank, but not allowing a selection to be made if that specific field or range already has data in it? I've attached a simplified example worksheet.
I have my data with column A being the Week ending date (a saturday date) for which the data was entered. In column B it is simply the Month that the data was entered. On another tab...the user can select weekly or monthly. What I would like is a validation drop-down that corresponds to the selection.
IE - If weekly is chosen, the validation will allow the user to select a week that is found in Column A in the data. If monthly is chosen, the validation will show the months from Column B instead. Is it possible to have one validation dropdown, that the validation LIST can be conditionally select based on input in another cell? (A1 being Weekly or Monthly - and B1 being where the validation dropdown would be)
I'm not sure if its possible to do what I want. I'm trying to do it without VBA as my users might have a high macro security setting.
I have a validation dropdown in A2 where they pick 'yes' or 'no' for FLSA. I would like B2 to be a dropdown (validation, listbox, whatever) that would change based upon A2. If A2 is 'yes' I want to use the data in A5:B7 and if its 'no' use A10:B12. Ultimately I want B2 to equal one of the numbers from A5 - A7 or A10 - A12. However when they click on the drop down they see the combo of column A and columb B as column A has no meaning for the user.
I am trying to create a drop down list that when selected will display data in the 10 rows below and 4 columns, so a total of 40 cells. I would like the data to be based on the selection in the drop down list.
i have 27 different combinations of the above list with up to 10 different rows. I have a label for each one, but i cannot get the rows below my drop down list to display the proper values base don the selection in the drop down list.
I have an existing User form with a drop-down list. If I open the user form, I can't select the drop-down list? Each time I move the cursor inside the User form, it wants to add another drop-down list?
I have researched and used some code that allows the user to select mutliple items from a list. This is using the Data Validation tool with a list and some code in the relavent sheet. It all works well and as described.
However, when I lock the Worksheet, the multi selection no longer works. Selection cells are ofcourse unlocked when sheet is protected.
I have also trialed unlocking the whole row that the multi selection exists in, no effect.
My understanding of this code is at about 50%.
Is there a way of being able to lock the sheet and retain this ability of multi selection. Maybe there is some other code I could refer too?

I am trying to find something that would allow me to have a spreadsheet clear the contents of a certain cell based on the selection made from a data validation list which resides on the same row. This can best be described with an example.
The user selects anything but " " or "none" from the validation list, which for this example resides in C5, would trigger code to clear the contents, if any, in AA5. If " " or "none" is chosen the value remains.
This capability should be available for each row through 100.
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)
