I want to have a spread sheet where a user will pick an option from a drop down list, then based on that option choice, have a different cell populate with a specifc drop down menu.
Cell A1 has a drop down with three choices (1,2,3) User selects option 1 Cell B1 will now have a drop down with options A,B,C However: If user selects option 2 from A1 Cell B1 will now have a drop down menu with options X,Y,Z
I would like to make a form where the user has to select from a drop down list several options, and that depending on the pick the drop down list below shows different options. example: For the question "what food do you want to eat?" you can select pasta, pizza or dessert.
Now if that person pics dessert, the 2nd drop down menu should shom him again a number of desserts he has to pick. And again below another one depending on what he chose.
If I have a cell that uses a list for drop downs (ie "Make" can be any of several different Fire Alarm Panel Types) and a second cell that I want to use to represent "Model Number" is there an IF the model is A from the Make list, THEN the next cells drop down list represents the model numbers under that Make?
I have an excel sheet with Column H having drop down menus for each cell In the column, starting with H5 going downwards.
The drop-down menu contains around 50-70 options, and what I have to do manually is go to h5 and click on the drop-down menu and select the first value. I then go to h6 and click on the drop-down menu and select the second value. I then go to h7 and click on the drop-down menu and select the third value. I then go to h8 and click on the drop-down menu and select the fourth value.....and so on and so on.....until I have chosen all values in the drop down-menu!
Is there a macro that will just do this automatically? Starting with cell h5 get the first value of the drop down menu, go to h6 and get the second value of the drop-down menu and so on until all the values are chosen?
If you manage this one, I also need to do something similar for column K, but this time select the first value of the drop down menu for k5 AND k6, then get the second value of the drop down menu for k7 AND k8, then get the third value from the drop-down menu for k9 AND k10 and so on.
I am trying to create 4 pull down menus. Menus 1, 2, 3, 4. Menu 1 is the top menu, menu 2 will only show certain information based on what was chosen on menu 1. Menu 3 will show certain information based on what was chosen in 2 and 4, again, will only show certain information based on what was chosen in 3. Sort of how the menus on autotrader work, if you chose audi it will only show audi vehicles, although not for the same purpose, or even the same industry. I am using Excel 2007, it might matter. I have attached an xls file that shows the information I am using and below that the basic progression, I haven't listed it all, but you should get the general idea.
I have a very large database, filled with every job we're working on and all the details about it - duties, employees, vehicles, material-costs, etc.
I am currently working on a 1-page "Summary Sheet", that would be used to wade through all of this info and only give me the information I am looking for on one job. I would like to be able to provide drop-down menus on this "Summary Sheet" so that management can pick the information they'd like to see, and not be bombarded by everything else.
Ideally, what I am trying to do is to have a space on top where somebody could enter the name of the job, and then when they pick an item from the drop-down list, it would pull that info from the database via an "Index/Match". When somebody enters a job-name and picks "Joints Tested" from the drop-down, it will only display how many joints were tested on that job.
I already have the drop-downs created, and have other Index/Match formulas in other spreadsheets (they trip me up a bit, but I can generally fiddle with them until they work correctly), but can't figure out how to make it work this way. My database has headings above each column, and I'm writing those same headings next the different options in the drop-down list, but I can't figure it out.
I receive inspection sheets from mechanics and I need to start tracking trends. So, let's say the mechanic has marked an "interior" issue and of the 10 potential items that could related to "interior", he has chosen "dirty upholstery" -
Column A is drop down menu with four categories listed:
Interior Exterior Transmission Undercarriage
So in Column A from the drop down menu I pick the main category of Interior. Then it's on to Column B to choose the exact issue of the Interior. When I choose "Interior" in Column A I would like Column B to automatically show me another drop down list with issues that relate only to Interior (i.e. glass, dirty upholstery, torn upholstery, etc.)
that is question #1....
If there are multiple issues on one vehicle, I would then go to Column C, pick another category (i.e. Transmission) and then in Column D, I would like it to automatically display the drop down menu that relates to Tranmission issues (engine oil, air intake, engine wiring, etc.).
I am using the following code to create a custom command menu.
Sub AddMenus() Dim cMenu1 As CommandBarControl Dim cbMainMenuBar As CommandBar Dim iHelpMenu As Integer Dim cbcCustomMenu As CommandBarControl On Error Resume Next Application.CommandBars("Worksheet Menu Bar").Controls("&New Menu").Delete On Error Goto 0 Set cbMainMenuBar = Application.CommandBars("Worksheet Menu Bar")..........................
I want to add a new button control at the bottom of the menu underneath the holiday control but it keeps adding it on the sub menu, which leads off the holiday button control. I want the menu to look like this.
Open Net 2 Access Add Employee Edit Employee Delete Employee Holidays (3 options on sub menu) *New Control
there is some clever code to create a customized menu in a dynamic Add-Ins section of the Excel ribbon; this section disappears when the workbook is deactivated and re-appears when it is activated. The custom menu has 2 main items each of which can launch a macro. There is also a 3rd main item called "Next Menu" which cascades nicely to a sub-menu. That sub-menu can have several items of its own. Very cool code.
However, I am trying to add a 4th item in the main menu, say, "Next Menu2" which also cascades to a sub-menu. The problem I'm having is when I try to replicate this code to accomplish this, "Next Menu2" appears in the sub-menu of "Next Menu", rather than as a separate (4th) main item below "Next Menu".
I believe there was another post (not sure of the date, but has since expired) which asked basically the same question as mine. There was a reply with code saying "This should work" but when I tried it, it didn't help.
I want to create a submenu to an already existing user defined menu.
After creating and saving the sub menu using Tools ->Customize ,it works fine. But when
I reopen the Excel sheet it is not found.
I could not find any macro related to the original User menu.Also this menu gets displayed after the AUTO OPen macro in my excel has worked. This menu gets displayed for only that workbook and not for others.
I have been trying to find out a way to create Sub menu for that ,but could not?
Currently, all of our data in Excel are linked by using Excel Functions between workbooks and some of the files are so large that it may take 10 minutes to open and copy and paste a cell may take three minutes (which is ridiculous slow).
Pardon my ignorance, my understand of Excel VBA/Marco is about automation. Even i use marco to run the excel, i still need formula in the cell in order to perform the task, right?
Is there a way too get the SaveAs box come up with a marco? When you go too file and save, a box comes up and lets you choose where and what you save. I would like too have it come up with a command button if its possible.
when i run this marco, i get a Password msgs box appear, now is there away of running it so that it does not ask for a password, I have tried to unprotect the sheet with a password which works, but it never re-protected it self,
I don't know that much about VBA and my programming knowledge is very limited. I dont want the code re-written, as its someone elses work and it does what i want, i just need to know if an extra line can be entered to stop the password msg box. I.E. it needs to run without asking for the password
I am trying to add a macro that will sort everything by what is in column A (not the first row though) and then have it expand the selection to the entire row and sort it. so basicly it would do the same as me clicking sort and filter and then selecting sort largest to smallest and then selecting yes to expand the selection. I have found some that sort only column A but nothing that changes it all.
I'm looking for is something that searches all worksheets in the work book for occurances of A1 (shovel) and replace it with A2 (spades). The list will be about 100 cells long and the idea would be that I could copy a sheet called "replace" with this list in, run it and standardise all the terms in the list within that workbook. Does it sound feasable?
The other query I'm not sure can be done. When I've tidied all these 'names' to a standard one, I want to sort the data (sometimes rows, sometimes columns) alphabeticalled for instance by the A1 to A10, or by A1 to Z1. Simply using the sort option loses all the references as is doesnt change any cells linked to that cell. The only way I could think to make keep the other cells pointing to where they should is to cut and paste/each row/column in alphabetical order manually.
I want to save the Excel file as "Excel Macro-Enabled Workbook." Currently, File Format:=xlNormal within the VBA code and the results saves the Excel file as .xls. How do I write the File Format to save the Excel file as "Excel Macro-Enabled Workbook."
I need help on how to do this. I have a list of parts in cell A1 to A10 in sheet1. And I have all the parts photo in sheet2. What I want is, when I move my cursor to the name of the part in sheet1, say is .. A1, then the A1 photo from Sheet2 will show up at a defined cell so that I know how the parts look like.
Having recently started to get involved in Visual Basic I have managed to write some code that has removed all of my menus except for File and Help. In a blind panic I deleted what I think was the offending VB code in a vain attempt to return the menus. This didn't work. I am now stumped.
Also, I managed to change the way the Cell selection works when I press Return. When I press Return, Excel now selects the cell to the right of the one I was in rather than the one below it. Is there a way I can change this back?
I have a workbook which uses the code below to create a new menu upon opening. I have now used this same code in a second workbook to create a different menu. both work OK on their own However if by chance both workbooks are opened at the same time only one menu is shown. Is there a way I can change one of these to create a second menu if the first one is already there?
