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.

I have a dynamic drop down validation List, which comes from another
spreadsheet list and have a few random blank cells in it. I need to
drop these blank values from the List without making any change in the

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 .

List - Filling In Each Blank Cells With Value Contained In First Non-blank Cell Above It

Feb 27, 2013

I have a list that looks something like this:

Column B

Row 4 Item 1
Row 5 Item 2
Row 6
Row 7
Row 8 Item 3
Row 9
Row 10 Item 4
Row 11
Row 12
Row 13
Row 14 Item 5

The range of cells in column B containing the items has a name "ColStreams"

I need to go through the list, filling in each blank cells with the value contained in the first non-blank cell above it - so, in this case, rows 6 and 7 would contain "Item 2", row 9 would contain "Item 3", rows 11-13 would contain "Item 4" and so on.

Add To Dynamic Range Via Drop Down List

Oct 8, 2008

I have created a spreadsheet that has many dynamic ranges, one of which is a list of vendors that my company uses, named "Company". This range is in a spreadsheet labeled "Analysis Search". From this list and on another worksheet, I have created a drop down list via data validation where the user inputs the vendor, and should the vendor not be in the dynamic range, a prompt will appear and warn the user that the name of the vendor is not already in the dynamic range and to add it once the entry is complete.

What I am looking to do is for Excel to automatically add the vendor to the dynamic range instead of having the user have to input the vendor. Also, I have used VB to have the range automatically sort alphabetically, so I would like to keep that functionality if possible. Is something like this feasible in Excel?

Lookup Data For Drop Down List Choice & Show Blank If No Choice

Feb 6, 2008

I currently have a drop down menu in one of my worksheets, in which I have several different text values entered. What I would like to do is link each of those text values to a numerical value, which would be entered in to another cell. So if I select "Option A" from my drop down list, and Option A is equal to 200, I want "200" to show up in another cell. If I select "Option B" from my drop down list, and Option B is equal to 400, I want "400 to show up in that same other cell.

Drop Down List: Looks At This Range And Then Populates This Information Into Columns

Oct 26, 2009

I have a 5 row list in WA2. Each row holds its data across 3 columns i.e A1description, B1 product code, C1 unit cost. In WA1 I want to have a drop down table in cell B3 that looks at this range and then populates this information into B3, C3 and C4. I have tried data validation but it keeps telling me that it can only look at a single row or single column

Drop-Down List With Variable Range And Hiding Blanks

May 4, 2007

I currently have a list on a worksheet named "Options". It is a named range entitled "Type" with rows A2:A500. Another worksheet uses "Type" as a drop-down list. Currently there are only five entries in the list - cells A2:A6. Other items will periodically be added to the list. That is the reason for the long range - up to A500.

In the drop-down list, all of the unused cells in the named range show up as blanks. Is there any way to not have the blanks show up in the drop-down list?

Or...

Is there a way to define the named range as a variable range to enable users to add items without redefining the range and have the added items automatically show up in the drop-down list?

Create Drop-Down List Using Increasing/Decreasing Range

Oct 3, 2006

I have a list of jobs being displayed using the following code. All sheet names that start with AJ, CJ and PJ within the workbook are how the list is created.

Sub ListSheets()
Dim sht As Worksheet
Dim lRow As Long
Dim rCell As Range

With Sheet1

Set rCell = .Cells(2, 12)
End With

For Each sht In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
Select Case UCase(Left(sht.Name, 2))
Case Is = "AJ", "CJ", "PJ"
lRow = lRow + 1
rCell(lRow, 1) = sht.Name

Case Else
End Select
Next sht

End Sub

what i want to do is create a drop list within each job sheet within the workbook that will display the names of the jobs above. Now the thing is I cannot choose the range like normal from data - validation - list as I will not know how many job names will be displayed so I dont know how many cells to include in the range.

I do exactly what the book says to do, however, my chart and my drop down list are not linked together, and when I change a name in the drop down list, the information on the chart does not change.

Ignore Blank Cells And Truly Blank Cells In Named Range?

Jan 13, 2014

Ok so my named range looks like this:

[Code]....

However, I want to ignore the "" cells and the truly blank cells... However, I think all of them will have "" since I have this formula in all of the ones I'm putting in the range:

[Code]....

How do I go about getting these results into a named range so I can use it on validation since validation only seems to ignore truly blank cells and not the "" ones.

I have a dynamic named range which allows me to have an automatically growing drop down list in B1 as more cities are added in column A. however, my workbook will have N/A errors to begin with before cities are added.

is there a way for my drop down list in B1 not to include the N/A errors and only the cities? of course when the next N/A error turns into a city, i would like the B1 drop down list to recognise this and include it.

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.

Count Blank Cells Within A Range Not Including Fully Blank Rows

Jul 15, 2008

I can count the blank cells withiin a range using

=COUNTBLANK(C6:AD2506)

But I dont want it to count the cells if the entire row, within that cell, i.e. C6:AD6, is blank.

It should only count the blank cells within a row if there has been some data entered on that row..provided it has been entered within the specified range.

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.
