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.

Drop Down List Which Displays A Different Set Of Values Depending Upon The Value Selected By A Previous Drop Down List

Oct 26, 2009

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 .

How To Get Drop Down List Value To Affect Multiple Cells

Sep 7, 2009

I have a rather simple problem (tough for me!). I am setting up a food log. I would like to have one column with common food items that I have in a drop down list. The list would be about 20+ things. The other columns would have relevant nutritional info such as calories, fat, carbs, etc.

The problem is how do I make the values in the other columns change depending on which food item I pick from the drop down list?

For example, if I choose bread from the list, how would I get the columns for carbs and calories to change accordingly.

The IF function would be too hard because I couldn't nest 20+ IF functions in the formula for each cell. Also, the drop down list would change as my diet changes, possibly reaching 50+ things.

Also, I would like to manually enter a serving size that would alter the nutritional values in each column (for example 0.5*Calories or Carbs).

It seems so simple in my head, but I can't figure out how to get it to work.

Drop Down List With Blank Cells Throughout Range.

Jan 21, 2010

I've used this site for help many times, but this was the first time I couldn't find the answer to my question through searching. I've looked all over this site & elsewhere, tried 2 dozen different solutions, and nothing seems to work.

I've used a budgeting spreadsheet for years, which lets me plan bills weekly according to paychecks. For each month, going down the "Expenses" column, there lists are seperated by when they'll occur. So there may be three blank cells, then electric bill, mortgage, blank, blank, cable bill, blank, cell phone, blank, gasoline.

On the checkbook worksheet, I want to enter a drop down box for the Expenses. The problem is, every solution I've found for doing this is aimed at eliminating blank spaces at the end of the list. This by necessity has to have blank spaces throughout the list, but I would like them to disappear in the drop down menu.

Populate Multiple Text Cells Using Corresponding Drop Down List?

Jul 5, 2014

The list is a crew list and I'd like to be able to select the foreman, but I'd like the crew cells to be populated with the information corresponding to that specific foreman. I've named the data range and created the drop down list but i cant figure out why the crew column wont populate with the crew. I am using a different sheet for my data.

I tried VBA but I am hoping I can use Index and Match.

=INDEX(crew, MATCH(C10, Personel!D2:F4, 0), COLUMN())

Filling In Multiple Cells After A Choice From A Drop Down List

Feb 17, 2009

If I choose 1 thing from a list I want it to then fill in many cells with info.

For example: I have a color list to choose from, once I make my choice cells near it fill in with 1.5lbs yellow, 2lbs blue, 4lbs red,.....or what ever I have established as the "recipe" for my color choice. When I choose a different color from my list these cells each fill in with different values.

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.

Updating Cells Based On Drop Down List Selection

Jun 8, 2007

I have created a pricing sensitivity for a list of products. In cell C3, users can select a product (i.e. Apple, Elmo, or Bowl) and based on this selection, a range of Prices and Units are then updated and the Revenue for each price point calculated. A few lines beneath this, I have a little summary table that lists all the products. I'd like for users to be able to enter in the optimal price point for each item and then have the Units and Revenue for that selected price point for that specific product automatically update.

For example, if I select Apple from my drop down list my price choices are $5, $10, $15; units are 100, 85, 70; and revenue are $500, $850, and $1,050 respectively. On the summary table, I would like units 85, revenue $850 to update automatically if I select/input a $10 price. This would happen for all the products so at the end I want to be able to calculate a blended revenue mix given my pricing changes.

Populate Cells Based On Chosen Drop Down List Value

Apr 25, 2008

I am attempting to populate a row of several cells on a worksheet using a drop-down list, using data from a seperate worksheet in the same workbook. The worksheet containing the data will be hidden (I do not think that matters in this case). Do I place a VLOOKUP function in the first worksheet cells? see attached sample

DropDownSample.xls

As a follow-up question, as time goes by, the data in the source worksheet will be appended with new items (additional rows of data). As each new item is added, will I need to edit the formulas, or is there a way for Excel to dynamically add the new data? This might be stretching my wish list a bit but I thought I'd ask.

Use Drop-down List To Choose What Kind Of Calculation To Apply To Certain Cells

May 26, 2014

I have a drop down list that shows phrases for different math functions, like "divide by 2," "divide by 4," divide by 8," etc. When one of these items is selected, I want it to perform that specific calculation on a range of nearby cells.

However, I also want the user to be able to see the original value of the cells if they select "show original value" from the drop down list.

I have attached a workbook as an example. I think macro would probably work best.

Auto Fill Cells Depending On Drop Down List Selection

Sep 22, 2008

I am trying to make a calendar spreadsheet to enable me to track allowance payments i am due from my company.

This payment is worked out by three conditions - where i am working (7 regions), how many days of the week (4,5,6 or7) and how many hours (<7,8-9 or 10-12)

I have made drop down lists to select each of the values for the three conditions and want to show the total for them

i can total the entire spreadheet for the month up using fairly large "COUNTIF" statements, but i want to be able to show what the exact amount is in each cell not just a complete total.

i.e. i am away for 6 days i get 15 extra, if i am in Europe i get another 50 and if i work 12 hours i get 30.

I want to be able to calculate this total in each cell for that day.

I can send a copy of the spreadsheet i have got at the moment if that will make things clearer than what i have tried to explain.

Select An Item From Drop Down List And Automatically Fill A Number Of Cells

Nov 15, 2008

I am kind of new to Excel programming and would like to know if there is a solution to my problem. What I need is to have a dropdown list (I know how to make this) then select an item from the drop down, then based on the name i select, Excel automatically fill up the rest of the cells.

For example, from the drop down list I select the company name then Excel automatically type the address, phone number, Fax number and the contact name of the company for me in corresponding cells. Is there a way to do this?

Updating Cells Based On Selection From Drop Down List Data Validation

Dec 13, 2009

I'm using Excel 2007. I would like to seek some advise on how i may update cells after selecting a month from a drop down list.

i have created a simplified version of what i intend to have. One the 1st tab 'Cash Budget 2009', i have filled up a table with numbers, sorted by months. On the 2nd tab 'Dec09', i would like to create an expense table, to be able to be selected by month. So i have created a drop down list based on the months that are created in the 1st tab.

Upon selection of the month from the drop down list, i would like the cells to display (fetch) the data from the 1st worksheet. It would also be helpful if the name of the 2nd tab can be updated to read as the month that is being selected.

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?

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.

Self Updating Drop Down List

Nov 1, 2008

I currently have a drop down list in sheet 1 and the list is being refrenced from sheet 2

Lets say the drop down list is for fruits and my current list in sheet 2 has 4 items Apple, Grape, Mango, Peach.

Now this is what I need :-

1 ) lets say a user wants to enter Orange (which is not in the list ) he can still do so by entering it manually into the cell.

2) Once Orange is entered which is not in the LIST in sheet 2 then that new name gets added to the LIST in sheet 2 so that next time that name appears in the drop down list automatically. eg Apple, Grape, Mango, Peach, Orange [ but Items should not get duplicated eg Apple, Grape, Apple, Mango, Peach, Apple

Drop Down List Auto

Nov 3, 2008

I have Excel 2003 installed on the companies computers. Many people use an Excel file and I am trying to make their work easier. There is on command which has a dropdown list made by me. What I would like to find out is that is there any possibility to make Excel help the user to choose from the drop-down list (the list is quite big). Is it possible to select a cell in this column and type in the cell and then Excel help the user. I mean (this list contains country names in abc order) if the user types S and W then Excel auto-corrects it to SWEDEN. Can this be done with Excel 2003?

Drop Down List And Formula

Feb 21, 2009

I have created a drop down list as follows

Whiteboard 16mm
Colourboard 16mm
Colourboard 18mm
Veneer 18mm
Veneer 19mm
Veneer laid up 40mm
Painted 16mm
Painted 18mm.

When I select one of these items I need CELL A1 to return just the thickness. EG: I hit dropdown list and select Whiteboard, CELL A1 then displays 16mm. Or I select Veneer laid up and it displays 40mm. I would imagine this formula would be quite long as I would have these 8 items in it.
