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:
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 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 have 4 sheets: 1 called main 1 called states 1 called counties 1 called people
On "main" I have 1 drop down box and 1 cell:
the drop down lists the states from "states" sheet the cell, which i would like to have as a drop down is supposed to be listing the counties in the state selected from the 1st drop down. right now it is setting the value to TRUE for testing purposes.
then when the county is selected, it will display the people in that county listed in "people". So far I can only get the 1st drop down to list the states. that's the easy part. i need to getting the counties to list in another drop down based on what state is selected.
Im a fairly basic VBA user who has just purchased the code for J-Walk's Enhanced Data Form.
On other threads in this forum I have noticed a lot of people asking how to make the contents of one drop-down box dependant on the selection in another. I am trying to do the same thing but with the criteria section of the EDF form.
Is this possible? What does give me hope is that a simple Autofilter - whilst not as aesthetically pleasing, does the job well.
Currently I have columns fixed or assigned to the names of insurance providers/companies.
In each column below the name of the Insurance Company, a combobox containing the plans that company offers. Choose a plan, and the rest of the column is filled in using vlookup.
Now to save space, IE opposed to having 13-15 columns one assigned to each Insurance Company/Provider. I am looking to have only 3-5 columns with a first initial combobox in which one chooses the Name of the Company/Provider, and in turn populate the original combobox and vlookup functionality I already have built in.
Here is an example of what I am working with. [url]
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.
In the attached example I am trying to get the selections from one drop down to gnerate available selections in the next. The first drop down is the door style. This then needs to generate the possible drop downs in wood species. This then needs to generate the possible drop down in available stains. this then needs to generate the related door factor....
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 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
i am trying to figure out how to write a formula and trying to figure out what type of formula to use to do this, been reading alot latley. i have a data verification drop down with many items in it. when an item is selected i want it to give two other responces in a selected column. ITEMQUANTITYUNIT DESCRIPTION150ALF8" DI Water150BLF6" DI Water
what i am after is this. i open the data verification drop down for 8" DI Water, when that item is selected i want it to install the appropiet unit number that would be LF (lanier foot) and also input the item which is 150A. i have a list of 80 items all that have their own unit and item number. This would save me alot of time.
i have a drop down list in cell b16 it has suppliers names in and it has several which are not all one word ie "monk and crane" the thing is that in cell d29 i have a drop down list that is dependant on whats in cell b16 in cell b16 i am using another data validation list using the code
and i want to add a name to that drop down list is there anyway i can do this by just putting it in the input cell
eg if my dropdown list is in a1 and i need to select the name mark mark isnt in the drop down list i can manually type this as i have unchecked input message and error message but is there anyway i can get a code to add that to the dropdown validation list the next time i open up i ask because i dont want people entering names on the sheet and having the name range changed
I'd like to have a drop down box in a cell in excel - so you would click on the drop down arrow and choose a name from the drop down. This name would then be displayed in that cell. The idea being that you can only chose a name from the list, and type nothing else in there.
I have named six different sets of data with six different names. I have a drop down box that lists these six different names. When I select one of the names from the drop down box, I would like the lookup I have off of this to change to what ever set of data the drop down selection is referring to. Example: I have my first data set named "Data_A", next "Data_B", etc... When my drop down selects "Data_E", i would like my Hlookup equation to change to HLookUp(a1,Data_E,3,false). Is this possible, or am I doing something wrong?
Upon click of "Populate Scorecard" button (e.g. on Company X worksheet), would like user to complete the Userform and based on their response, it would add to the appropriate "Month" (selected from the Userform Drop down) in the Scorecard worksheet.
I have started an IF statement for "Jan-08" and was going to copy and paste code for each of the months, e.g "Feb 08, Mar-08 etc", but thought their would be an easier way based on Loops or Call statement. Just not sure how to do this? Can anyone assist with getting me started?
I'm also not sure how to add the code for "Buyer Comments" and "Month" to be added to seperate worksheet (e.g. Company X), if Company X was selected.
Note that i will create a hide sheet statement, so user can select which Company (e.g. X or Y) to select from. The code would then need to correspond with that companies Scorcard worksheet.
I am trying to create a drop-down box in cells D21 and D22 which are dependent on each other. From my understanding this cannot be done in Data Validation. For example cell D21 is Route Number and D22 is Route name. If someone knows the Route Name they would select it from the drop-down, then cell D21 would fill in the Route Number. Similarly if they know the Route Number the Route Name would fill in.
I am able to have one dependent on the other using Data Validation and VLOOKUP, however not dependent on each other.
I have a drop down box linked to cell A2 for example, when the change is made on the drop down box the linked cell returns the value 1,2or 3. I'm not sure if I require a code or an 'IF' command - but what I would like to achieve is that say when 2 is selected I want to goto sheet 3 A1, if 3 is selected then sheet 3 A2 and if 1 then nothing happens. Or can I make the function dependant on what the drop down box displays e.g Correct, Not Correct and Requires Change. (1,2 and 3 respectively).
