Disable Validation Error Messages

Oct 9, 2008

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.

Disable All Kinds Of Messages/warnings/alerts

Dec 5, 2009

I need to disable all kinds of messages that could appear in front of the user when it opens the workbook. I am already using DisplayAlerts=False and On Error Resume Next? Can we also do this through excel application itself and not using VBA ?

Two Cells Which Have Formulas Stopping Error Messages Show An Error When Added

Nov 9, 2009

See the attached sheet. I am trying to add together two figs which are linked to calculations which have formula built in to stop error messages when there is a 0 / 0 = #value type error. However when these two cells are added, if the cells are blank I get an error message. And if only one cell has a value, I get "" with my existing formula. what I need to do to get a result of 7 if for example cell A4 = "" + B4 =7. At the moment my formula shows "" in the sum total of these cells

Error Messages When Total Is Not 720 In Cell

Apr 20, 2009

I have a total box which should add up to 720 when other cells have data entered.

Is there a way that I could put up an error message if the total is not 720 in that cell when someone tries to save the worksheet?

Or maybe for eg, cell A1 does not add up to 720, if they then try and move on to cell A50, the message would appear then?

Editing Run-time Error Messages

Jul 25, 2006

I'm guessing this is not (easily) possible, but I thought I might just ask in case: Can we change the messages in VBA run-time errors displayed by Excel. Better yet, I would like to avoid the Excel generated error box, and just have a text message written into a particular cell.

Count Number Of Cells That Meet Specific Conditions - Error Messages

May 11, 2006

I have a spreadsheet which is linked to several other worksheets. I have managed to include formulas to count how many cells have numbers between 101 and 5000 by using this formula -


but now I want to count the number of cells in another worksheet that are equal to or less than zero. When I use the same formula as above it counts all the blank cells. I have tried using a countblank formula and then deducting this from the result, but unless the other worksheet is open the countblank formula does not work.

How Do I Disable Cells From Yes/no Validation List Box

Jul 9, 2004

I have produced an order form and one of the columns is 'availibility' with all cells in this column set to a validation list containing 'Yes,No'.

If the user selects 'no' for a particular item's availibility, i want that row of cells to disable in some way. i.e change colour to grey and become locked.

If the user selects 'yes' the row for that item will remain unlocked and will not change colour.

Mar 31, 2010

I'm using Excel 2003

Cell D7 - data validation reads as such: It is a List and the source is I6:I7. I have In-Cell dropdown selected. Ignore Blank is not checked.

I now password protect the sheet and only D7 is unlocked. real simple, the person using it can only use D7 and select one of two in the drop down menu.

The problem is, if the user clicks on D7 and hits delete, the cell goes blank. How can I avoid this?

Vba : Error Returning Validation Object

Apr 14, 2007

I am trying to read Formula1 from the the Validation object. If the cell does not contain a Formula1 - I get on object error.


Derk suggested "That error occurs when the activecell has no validation. Some of the properties return as "codes" so you will need to figure out what say -1 means for alertstyle." I do not know how to test for this.

Data Validation - Source Currently Evaluates To Error

Apr 28, 2014

I am currently creating a form to hold 2 drop down lists that change depending on the selection in the first one. I had never done this before and taught myself and got it to work minus one problem. As soon as I input the formula under the Data Validation the error: "The Source currently evaluates to an error. Do you want to continue?" pops up. Right now the formula works except for the last 6 options in my first drop down. When I select them nothing pops up in the 2nd drop down menu. I have double checked and triple checked that I have no spaces or anything in my LIST on worksheet 2 or any of the names are input correctly.

A7 is the first drop down - PROPOSED

B7 the second. - ITEM #

Lists and data to populate the lists are on worksheet 2 with the "List" at the bottom of worksheet 2...

Error When Copying And Pasting Fields With Validation

Feb 24, 2009

I have created a daily operating room schedule in which each time slot has a drop down box for the Doctor doing the procedure and the Group of doctors from which he/she came.

It is a yearly schedule with each day of each month duplicated on a tab for that month - the same daily schedule for each.

I have been able to duplicate each day right up until the 25th of the month in which I attempt to save the spreadsheet and am given an error stating it can not save some of the data, though the data appears to be intact (the validation drop down lists)

Upon closing and reopening the spreadsheet, all of the cells that contain validation including and after the 25th of the month are simply gone.

I have attempted to attach a copy of the file but I keep encountering an error with the database.

Zip file with xls file has been added

Data Validation List :: Shows #VALUE! Error

May 15, 2007

I'm working on a function that gets its values from a Data Validation List.

My problem is that I want the function to return a value when an item in the list is selected and another if the user did not make a selection... just a basic if....then....else ... but the cell where I call this function shows the #VALUE! error while no item in the list is selected.

I call the function like this:
=myFunction(RC[-5], RC[-2])
where RC[-5] is the Data Validation List and RC[-2] is a cell where the user should enter a number

why I'm getting the #VALUE! error instead of my message

The function basically looks like this:

Error Handling For Data Validation List

Jun 19, 2009

I have a excel document that is very heavy with Data Validation List Boxes. Below is just one example. Error handling is what I am trying to figure out.
I have 3 List Boxes.
One list box data is based on data selected in the previous list box.

1st List Box uses this formula: =Series
2nd List Box uses this formula: =INDIRECT($C$2)
3rd List Box uses this formula: =INDIRECT($C$3)

It all works! HOWEVER....
If user decides to go back and change selection in first or second list box, and forgets to change the data in the second or third box, then data will be incorrect. How do I solve this problem?
Is there anyway to write something so it would give them an error message and instructing them to correct the data?

Turn Off Messages While Typing Code

Oct 31, 2008

Is there a way to turn off those annoying error message boxes that pop-up when a line of code is incorrect? I pretty frequently go to another area of code to grab some previous code to copy and paste, and the error message box pops-up, so I have to hit OK to close it. It would be nice if it still highlighted the problem red, but I'd even give that up for those boxes to go away.

Displaying Messages Dependent On Format?

Mar 22, 2012

I'm trying to create a more user friendly (and easily updated) gantt chart for marketing campaigns running throughout the year. The difficulty is that we have approximately 100 products and each product can have anything up to 20 campaigns per year (never overlap, though, fortunately).

Campaign data is on one row per product in columns B:CC (each campaign consists of start date, end date, name and volume) but these are hidden from the user. The conditionally formatted chart runs from CD2:QD108 and is predominantly based on the start and end dates.

When any coloured cell is selected I want the relevant campaign name to be displayed, like a data validation message.

Click Through Messages While The Macro Is Running

Apr 7, 2007

I have set up a macro that opens a set of about 20 excel files, one at a time,and then copies select sheets, and then pastes into a different main spreadsheet. After each sheet is opened and copied/pasted, I close it out and open the next one. My problem is I keep having to click through messages while the macro is running. I encounter the following messages:

1. Do you want to save (file that I opened and copied from)?

2. The formula or sheet that you want to copy contains the name "asdf.." which already exists on the destination worksheet. Do you want to use this version of the name?

3. A box comes up that says update values from this file:

4. There is a large amount of information on the clipboard. Do you want to be able to post this information into the clipboard later?

I would rather ignore all of these message boxes, but my answers to them are as follows:
1. No i do not want to save
2. Yes I want to use that version of the name
3. I want to select cancel out of this
4. No i do not want to be able to post that information.

Is there any way I can automate this?

Automate Pop-up Error Message For Data Validation Purposes

Jul 18, 2014

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.

Circulating Error On Creation Of Dynamic Validation List

Aug 13, 2014

I've converted to a dynamic validation list which allows for a selection of data to be made available based on the selection of the two previous columns.

Unfortunately since creating the new validation a circulating error occurs when tabbing through the table (B) to create a new line or entry? Additionally I've found the following to occur also;

1. The payments and PO# columns converts a red shade colour?

2. The validation on Table B description column do not work while in excel online edit mode?

Error In Data Validation - Unable To Load Spreadsheet?

Sep 4, 2013

Error in data validation: "A named range you specified cannot be found." However, the named ranges are in the Name Manager, and if I go to the sheet and select the range, I can see it is already named.

Full description:

I created a spreadsheet model (no VBA, just formulas, etc) in a workbook that another coworker took and added VBA to. However, he was not working with the most updated version. So last night I checked the sheets which had the same names, made sure there were no differences except the changes I had made since that version, and then moved the ones from my current workbook into his workbook.

On the sheet where the user was to input details of the report, there are 4 cells that each contain different lists (non-dependent). I want the user to only be able to choose one of the 4 drop down menus - that is, if any of the 4 cells are filled in, I would like the other 3 to default to N/A (or somehow not be allowed to be chosen). This was solved in a previous thread:

Using A1: =IF(COUNTA(A2:A4),NA(),G2:G6) from the other thread solution, I used a named range instead of G2:G6 and it worked well.

When I merged the files together, the 4 cells no longer worked at all. It was suggested that I look at the Name Manager, and some of te named ranges I had were in there multiple times. I cleaned them up.

I tried to enter the same formula again, and it gave me the specific error: "A named range you specified cannot be found." However, the named ranges are in the Name Manager, and if I go to the sheet and select the range, I can see it is already named.

I am unable to load the spreadsheet due to sensitive data, and removing the data would make the workbook make no sense.
