Automatically Update A Selection In A Drop Down List From A Cell Value Change

Jul 31, 2008

I have two worksheets...

Sheet 1
A1: description
A2: Target Iteration
A3: Concat A1, A2.

Sheet 2.
A1: Drop down datavalidation list selected from A3, sheet 1.

On sheet 2, a user can select from the list. If a user changes the value in A2, sheet 1, I want the value that is associated and already selected in A1, sheet 2 to automatically update. There is a 1 to many relationship with the concat and the drop down. In that, sheet 2 can have multiple rows with the same value from sheet 1 A3. Is there a way when A3 sheet 1 changes, to search in A:A in sheet two and update the values for those records that match the original value in A3, sheet 1?

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.

Created Validation Drop-down List - Can I Make The Row Now Change To The Colour That Relates To The Selection From The List

Jan 13, 2009

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

etc.

Is this possible within Excel 2003?

Font Change For Drop Down List...

Oct 24, 2008

I have a coworker trying to create a dropdown list and is using wingdings for the checkmark, x, and other symbols for filling out for. Everything works great except when you click in the field the drop down box doesnt show the wingdings font but the corresponding arial font. Is there a way to change the dropdown box to wingdings because currently the dropdown box shows various 'u's with different grammatical stresses.

Change Combobox Drop Down List

Feb 13, 2008

I inherited a spreadsheet with a combox box, drop down list for user to select a project by name. The cell right below uses a lookup function to select the code listed with that project name from a list on a separate worksheet. When I edit the codes on the list used as the source for the lookup, the new code will appear as it should.

I want to edit the drop down list that appears in the combobox. I cannot find the source for the drop down list. Any ideas where/how to look for it?

Automatically Change Cells To New Value When Drop-Down List Source Changes

Aug 1, 2009

I am looking to have the Cells that I have applied a Dropdown List to update with the changes that I make to the list itself.

Example:

If I were to validate a list with a range of a1:a3 using "Bob" "Sarah" "Bill" and then apply that list to B:B and randomly select from the three names running the length of B:B, I would want that when I go back to A2 and change "Sarah" to "Linda" that every "Sarah" that I have selected using the drop down will update to say "Linda"

I hope that I am explaining myself clearly and in a simple context.

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 Change Based On Two Drop Down Menus

Dec 20, 2009

I have two drop down menus: Class Name and Class Period.

Class name returns reading, math, science, or social studies.

Class period returns 1,2,3, 4,5

I need a formula for a cell that will return the name of the first student in whatever criteria is selected by the two drop down menus.

Example: If reading 2 were selected, I would want the name of the first student in reading period 2.

I did start out with nested If's combined with ands, but that is too many nested ifs. I figured there was a better or easier way to do this.

Formula I thought of: =IF(AND(G3="Reading", H3=1), '[Reading 8.xls]Sheet1'!$A6, IF(AND(G3="Reading", H3=2), '[Reading 8.xls]Sheet1'!$D6)) etc.....

But if I use that there would have to be 20 nested ifs, which I think I read someone nested ifs cap at 9.

Drop Down Or Some Sort Of Input Cell That Would Change The Look And Format Of The Entire Worksheet

Jul 30, 2009

Is there a way to have a drop down or some sort of input cell that would change the look and format of the entire worksheet? Not sure how to pose the question?? For example.

What I'm working on is a departmental forecast sheet.

I want my department heads to be able to all look at the same excel file, then be able to input or select their department from a drop down. Once the department is selected that would call for excel to bring up the forecast for their specific department (**Each departments sheet is a little different).

Using Drop Down List As Selection Criteria For The Next Cell

May 31, 2008

One worksheet will have a library of job elements for assembly process with standard times on it.For example:Pick up a bolt(0.621m),install gasket(0.231m) etc.
The main worksheet will have a dropdown list which will list all the job elements discussed above.It will also have the quantity.So in otherwords,to pick up one bolt the time would be 0.621 minutes.But if anyone picks up 4 bolts the time would be 2.115 minutes,which can be calculated by the formula.So I want to display the job element,qty and the time in three separate rows.This worksheet will also calculate the total time for the assembly of the components which might contain more than thousand job elements.
My question is how do I ensure that picking up any of these job elements will give me the correct time.Is this something that can be done by formulas or anything thats built in excel or I need to run a macro or VBA to run some codes for IF...ELSE....THEN statements.There are too many conditions like If pick up one bolt time is 0.621 minutes,if pick up 4 bolts time is 2.115 minutes or if pick up a gasket time is 0.231 minutes.

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

Restrictions On Drop Down List If Cell Is 'a' Then Other Cell Must Equal 'b'

Jul 15, 2009

I have two cells, both of which have drop down lists for options 'a' & 'b'. When one equals 'a' the other should be restricted into only saying 'b' and vice versa. I would also like the user to be reminded that he can only select 'a' once from the two menus. Ideally I would like to do this in a formula rather than VBA?

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.

I'm assuming offset is the best option?

VB To Activate List Drop Down Boxes When Data Is Entered In A Cell

May 20, 2009

I have a Validation drop down box (column B) and a defined range drop down box (column E linked to the Totals tab with A2-A31 defined as Products) that I need to activate everytime data is added to a new line in column 'A' and cells in column 'B' or 'E' are selected. Additionally, they need to activate if the cells in column 'B' or 'E' are selected for any of the old data so changes can be made. This will help reduce the overall file size and calculation time for a year's worth of data.

There is already some code on the worksheet that looks like it can be adapted if someone knows how to code in the drop down boxes.
