# Drop Down List Based On Cell Content

Jul 22, 2007

I'm trying to find a macro that will allow me to enable several drop down lists in the same cell based on the content of another cell. In other words:

If cell A1 is the data entry cell, and the user enters "cat"
Then cell B1 will display a drop down list of previously grouped options: "mouse, bug, bird"

If in cell A1 the user enters "dog"
Then cell B1 will display a different list of previously grouped options: "mole, rabbit, kibble"

## Drop Down List Which Returns Values Based On What Has Been Selected In The Previous Drop Down List In The Adjacent Cell

Mar 19, 2009

I'm trying to create a drop down list which returns values based on what has been selected in the previous drop down list in the adjacent cell, e.g. if 'Apples' is selected in the previous cell then you should only be able to select from 'Gala, Granny Smith', or if 'Oranges' is selected you should only be able to select 'Seville, Blood Orange'. Is there a formula which would do this, or can I use a pivot table somehow? I'm totally stumped.

## Drop-Down List: Generate A List Based On The Value Of A Cell

Jan 7, 2009

I am trying to generate a list based on the value of a cell. That list will then be used as the range for a drop-down list. Example: Cell A1 returns a value of 15
A drop-down list displays the values 1 through 15. Cell A1 changes to 20
Drop-down list displays the values 1 through 20. I assume I'll need a two-step macro to accomplish this but I can't figure out the logic to populate the drop-down.

## Cell Contents Based On Drop Down List

Jan 6, 2006

Can the information in say cell b:1 be based on the information in A:1? Example: If A:1 has the name Fred Smith then I want cell B:1 to say Nurse. Column A will have a drop down list of names and column B will have a list of Nurse, EMT or Paramedic. When someone pick a name from the list the information in column B will automatically be filled in based on the information in column A.

## Value Of Cell Based Adjacent Drop Down List Value

Apr 25, 2008

The easiest way for me to explain it is to give an example: if the list contains Red,Blue,Green,Yellow. i need a formula for the adjacent cell that inputs £1 if red is chosen, £2 if blue is chosen, £3 if green is chosen, £4 if yellow is chosen

I have a set of data on excel and would like to make searching for it easier.

I have created a drop down list in cell B4 (say, "Banana", "Apples" and "Orange"). Is there a way that if i select "Banana" in cell B4, excel will automatically go to cell A20 ?

## Return Value Based On Selection Chosen From Drop-down List In Cell Next To It

Jul 2, 2014

I need VBA code to do the following:

When cell H2 = "Weekly", I need cell I2 to return "50".
When cell H2 = "Bi-weekly", I need cell I2 to return "25".

The value in Column I should change as soon as the value in Column H changes.

NOTE: The value in Column H is chosen from a Data Validation List.

I'm assuming offset is the best option?

## Return Cell On Separate Sheet Based On Selection From Drop Down List?

Mar 18, 2014

I am trying to create individualized worksheets based off a master worksheet. I have different committee names that I want to appear on the individualized sheets, based on whether the person is apart of that committee or not. On my master sheet, I choose the persons name under the committee and I want that committee name to show on the individualized sheet. For example, I want A1 on Master to show on Name 1, B3 and A10 on Master to show on Name 1, C3. Can I write a formula to achieve this or or am I asking too much? In my actual file, I will have about 10 names and 5 committees with one person being on up to all 5 of the committees.

## Copying Many Cells, Drop Content Into One Cell?

Jul 7, 2009

I have a document I was directed to fill in. I was instructed to only use a certain number of characters and then drop into another cell below it for paragraphs of text. I have now been told they made a mistake, need me to copy all the related cells for a specific paragraph and drop them into a single cell.

Can I copy the text in multiple cells, and then drop the cell formating of those copied cells and drop the content into one single cell. Either word wrapping the content or soft returns for what looks like paragraphs again?

## Change Content Of One Cell Based On Content Of Another

Apr 18, 2014

Formula/macro/etc that would enable me to have content of a cell changed based on the content of another cell in the same row.

Example: cell in column D says "PSA" - so I would need the cell in column H for that same row to read "Radio"

I would need an entire sheet scanned to review for these occurrences and make the appropriate changes. I also would need the formula to be inclusive enough to scan for variations in column D cell content (PSA 1, PSA 2, etc).

## Drop Down List Which Displays A Different Set Of Values Depending Upon The Value Selected By A Previous Drop Down List

Oct 26, 2009

I need to have a drop down list which displays a different set of values depending upon the value selected by a previous drop down list. ie. (drop down box 1)= x, y, z. (drop down box 2)= either x1, x2, x3, or y1, y2, y3, or z1, z2, z3. I can produce a single drop down box thats not a problem but linking several drop down boxes is beyond me .

## How To Return Corresponding Values Based On Drop-down List

Jun 3, 2014

I have created a drop down list of various material sizes what I am needing to do is to select a material size from the drop down list and a corresponding value is input into the cell. So on say sheet two (Data Sheet) I have Cell A1 25x25 with Cell B1 100, Cell A2 30x30 with Cell B2 120 and so on. On sheet 1 Cell A1 has my drop down list being the material size ie 25x25, so what I need to happen is if I select 25x25 then Cell B1 is 100 or if I select 30x30 then cell B1 is 120.

## How To Look Up Based On Two Values Generated From Drop Down List

May 10, 2009

Ok what I am trying to do is lookup a value in a table (kinda like one below but alot bigger). What I plan on doing is creating a drop down list for the rows that show "A, B, C etc) and then another drop down for (AA, BB, CC etc).

So lets say the 2 drop-down list are set to C and BB
I want to be able to fill another cell with the value -134

I would use If statements but like I said the table would be alot bigger than example. If possible I would rather not use VBA due to work security settings.

a b c
AA-110-110-129
BB-115-115-134
CC-117-133-136

## Formulas Based On Drop Down List Item

Nov 7, 2008

http://home.comcast.net/~unkerjay/CSBG_Sheet.xls

in it, there's a Sheet named:

CSBG Report

which has a drop down list for all possible reports
beginning with "Jan".

There's also a "Totals" sheet which has the corresponding
information for each report totaled in separate columns.

Jan, for instance is totaled in column B.
Feb, is totaled in column C.
And so on.

What I'd like to be able to do, is, depending on
the report selected, to have the information in
the corresponding cells in the "CSBG Reports" Sheet
pulled from the appropriate column in the "Totals" Sheet.

So far, I'm not wrapping my mind around a way to
do this.

## Conditional Drop Down Lists Based On Another List

Feb 17, 2006

Just wondering if a drop down list can be specific to a selection made in a previous cell. For example in column A the user would select either:

Weekly
Monthly
Other

Then in column B, the drop down list would be conditional upon what was selected in A. So if the user selected 'Weekly' - the drop down list in B would be: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc. Or if the user selected 'Monthly' in column A's list, the list in column B would be: 1, 2, 3, ......31.

## Vlookup To Access Data Based On A Drop-down List...

Nov 14, 2008

i have been looking around here and it seems like my problem is similar to many's regarding the vlookup function. to me, what i'm trying to do sounds simple enough, but it can't get it to work. i have a table that has three columns, Item Number, Item Description, and Amount.

Each item has it's own number, a corresponding item description, and ammount (obviously), but there are some repeats. What I want to do it input the Item Description, and have one field automatically pull up the Item number, and the next field, pull up the price. I am using a drop-down list for the Item Descriptions utilizing data validation. here is formula that i have been trying to use that is not working: =VLOOKUP(B2,Sheet1!\$A\$2:\$C\$18,1,FALSE). i have attached a trial worksheet that i am using to work things out on.

## Extracting Data Based On Drop Down List Choice

I'm trying to do is build a form that will allow me to select from a list of options, that links back to a catologue of data so that when i click on the generate button it will pull the data associated to the item selected from the list into a text box in excel. I have attached the form that I have created.

## Updating Cells Based On Drop Down List Selection

Jun 8, 2007

I have created a pricing sensitivity for a list of products. In cell C3, users can select a product (i.e. Apple, Elmo, or Bowl) and based on this selection, a range of Prices and Units are then updated and the Revenue for each price point calculated. A few lines beneath this, I have a little summary table that lists all the products. I'd like for users to be able to enter in the optimal price point for each item and then have the Units and Revenue for that selected price point for that specific product automatically update.

For example, if I select Apple from my drop down list my price choices are \$5, \$10, \$15; units are 100, 85, 70; and revenue are \$500, \$850, and \$1,050 respectively. On the summary table, I would like units 85, revenue \$850 to update automatically if I select/input a \$10 price. This would happen for all the products so at the end I want to be able to calculate a blended revenue mix given my pricing changes.

## Populate Cells Based On Chosen Drop Down List Value

Apr 25, 2008

I am attempting to populate a row of several cells on a worksheet using a drop-down list, using data from a seperate worksheet in the same workbook. The worksheet containing the data will be hidden (I do not think that matters in this case). Do I place a VLOOKUP function in the first worksheet cells? see attached sample

DropDownSample.xls

As a follow-up question, as time goes by, the data in the source worksheet will be appended with new items (additional rows of data). As each new item is added, will I need to edit the formulas, or is there a way for Excel to dynamically add the new data? This might be stretching my wish list a bit but I thought I'd ask.

## Display Data Based On Selected Month From Drop-down List?

May 14, 2014

I want a table to display data based on which month i select from a drop-down list, the data is of course extracted from a different table. For example, in my final table( highlighted in yellow), i want to display the revenues, cost of goods sold..etc of April in this table when i choose April from the drop-down list, the data of the entire year is located in another table that i plan to hide, as we only need to review one month.

## Show List Dependent On A Cell Content?

Jul 31, 2014

I'm trying to create a form where you can select names from a list dependant on what depot has been selected

On Sheet 1 along the first row are names of depots, under each of these are a list of names (number of name varies)

On Sheet 2, C2 is a data validation list, with source being =Sheet1!A4:E4

Is it possible to make C3 show a list of the names that's dependant on what's selected in C2
