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.

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.

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"

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.

Generate From Larger List Short List That Meets Multiple Criteria?

Mar 27, 2014

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!

Using A List In A Pivot Table To Generate A List On Another Sheet

Jul 29, 2008

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.

Excel 2003 :: Macro That Will Generate A List Based On Cells Value

Mar 6, 2012

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.

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.

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?
