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.
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.
I am trying to create a list, I know how to do this on the same sheet, I need to be able to have the list informaiton on a data sheet that contains other information that I need to have to populate other parts of the sheet. then I need to add this list data so that I can have drop down options so that users can pick from selected work descriptions
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.
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 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 .
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.
I have a large amount of data, 40,000+ rows about how students do in remedial classes including from whom they took the classes. I have pulled from it a subset of student success as relates to the separate instructors. Now I would like to extract a consolidated list of those instructors for whom the student gain on criterion based pre and post course assessments is above a specific level. I have no trouble writing if statements that will look at two types of data, the course taken and the average student increase to determine which instructors meet or surpass the criterion, but I can only do that within a list that includes all the instructors. Because there are more than an hundred such instructors, it would be easier for the dean if I could provide a short list of those that meet specific criteria. I believe that it would be an array that I should use, but I have been fooling around with this for 2 days now, and am finding myself at a series of deadends!
I have a set of accounts (general ledger accounts) that the accounting group posts expenses to. every once in awhile a new account is added. This is captured through a pivot that i have built (sheet A).
on another sheet (sheetB) i want to display the accounts that are shown in the pivot so that i can forecast their future activity.
What i am trying to figure out is how can i make the list on Sheet B change when new accounts are added to the pivot on Sheet A (without simply referencing the pivot table making one cell equal the other)? I am not looking for a data validation pull down, i want a full list of the accounts.
I have a workbook that has 30 tabs in it. Each tab is a report card for students. What I'd like to do is create another tab with a button on it that when I hit the button it will search through each tabs range of D12:D40, D48:D76, D84:D112, D120:D136, J12:J40, J48:J76, J84:J112, and J120:J136. And if any of these cells has an MS in them then this new sheet I have created will list each students name which is in cell E5 and list what they recieved the MS for. This will be in the same row number but in column B. So if cell D12 has an MS in it then this report will list the students name and what's in cell B12.
I have a drop-down box(K6) When a style is selected I need to have data show up in other drop-down boxes (H3,L3,P3) These selections would only pertain to the selection in K6. They would change when a different style is selected. There are multiple choices in the secondary drop-downs. [IMG][/IMG]
What I need to do is create a Drop Down box. When a user makes their selection it gives another drop down box from what they selected. Each choice in the 1st drop down will give a different drop down box in the next field from what they selected in the 1st. I am having troubles getting this to work.
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.
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
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.
I have a dropdown list in my spreadsheet, on the list is Compound, Pay by Check, Internal Transfer, and ACH. I would like a message box to pop up with a message when anything except Compound is selected. The cell is d38.
I am trying to make a drop down list based on the result of a vlookup.
What i want to do is look into a table that has country name, depot station, but i have more than one depot per country so when i look up with vlookup i only get one result back, the table looks like this.
Country Country nameDepot code Depot name 1 GBUnited Kingdom STN Stansted 2 GBUnited Kingdom EDI Edinburgh 3 GB United Kingdom EMA East midlands 4 FR France GNO Garanoa 5 FR France MRS Marseille
How can i look up GB or United Kingdom and get all the depots listed from that country.
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.
My problem is i need to create a drop down box in excell, now i have a list of names,
Name 1 Name 2 Name 3 Name 4..........
I need all thos enames in a drop down list but i think i keep doing things wrong, I am doing it like this, All names are in cells A23-A33, i have highlighted them and named them (Names) using the name box in the top left corner, i have then gone to Data, Validation, List, Then i have sourced it to "Names" and clicked ok, this is where my problem is. It Makes all the boxes for Name 1 - Name 10 Drop Down Boxes... And when i click on any of them it gives me a list of all the names, when i click on one of the Names that name appears in the drop down box but the original Name dissapears from the box completely!
Name 1 Name 2 Name 3 Name 4 Name 5..................
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
