Dropdown Menu To Pick Records Out Of List?

Dec 16, 2013

Is it possible on Excel to make a drop down menu which picks records out of a list?

I've a big spreadsheet. Thousands of records. About 100 responsible are listed responsible for them. I've highlighted stuff for them to fix, I'll be emailing it out to them, and they'll need to isolate the dozens of records they are each responsible for.

They are, erm, technologically challenged. I want to keep it simple, put one menu on the screen and say

'Pick your name from the list.'

George W picks himself, and then it lists his records but not anybody else's.

Can Excel do that? (Rather, probably, but where do I start?)

Default Dropdown Menu To Isolate Records

Dec 16, 2013

Is it possible on Excel to make a drop down menu which picks records out of a list?

I've a big spreadsheet. Thousands of records. Each record has one of 100 people listed as responsible for it. I've highlighted stuff for them to fix, I'll be emailing it out to them, and they'll need to isolate the dozens of records they are each responsible for from the thousands of other ones.

They are, erm, technologically challenged. I want to keep it simple, put one menu on the screen and say

'Pick your name from the list.'

George W picks himself from the list, and then it lists his records only and not anybody else's.

Dynamic Dropdown Menu / List

Aug 22, 2013

I have a successful dropdown menu that removes items that have already been selected through the dropdown list, however, I need it to be able to handle IDENTICAL items. At the moment, it can only handle unique items.

I'm trying to create a Rota Planner. I have a selection of shifts that need to be selected for each day. Some shifts are repeated (meaning that there may be 4 members of staff on the same shift). As ONE of each of the 4 shifts are selected, I then want only 3 to be displayed in the dropdown menu to be selected, until all of them have been selected.

I've tried to break apart the code that provides dynamic dropdown list for UNIQUE values but I'm tearing my hair out and getting nowhere.

Pick Earliest Date For A Record From Row Of Those Records?

May 30, 2014

We have multiple work orders per opportunity, and each work order has a date. I have a sheet of these work orders which shows the work order #, work order date, and opportunity date. What I want to do is add a column which reports the work order date if it is the earliest instance of a work order for the opportunity (said differently, the first work order for the opportunity). Is there a way to write a formula to report whether the date of the row is the earliest date for a given opportunity, all in the same table?

Automatically Run Through Dropdown Menu?

Jul 7, 2014

I've got a workbook with multiple worksheets related to several subsidiary companies for each state & territory, resulting in 450+ worksheets in the workbook. I created a summary sheet with a dropdown menu for each state/territory that pulls in the relevant data using "=indirect". For example, selecting CA from the dropdown menu populates the combined revenue, expenses, etc., for all subsidiaries in CA. However, I've got 50 states plus some territories. I'd like the revenue, expenses, etc. for every dropdown option. Ideally, a separate sheet (or whatever) that lists all 50 states and the revenue, expenses, etc., for each one below (or across).

Is there any way to do this automatically so I don't have to select every single option and copy and paste the numbers into a different worksheet?

Different Output When Choosing From Dropdown Menu?

Dec 23, 2013

I'm looking for a way for excel to output data to a cell dependent on what I choose from a drop down menu.

For example. I have a drop down menu with 3 options. 1,2 and 3. What I want is that if I choose option 2, then in cell A2 (or whatever) would output the value of 2, say "2222". Or if I choose 1, then A2 would output the value of 1, say "12345".

Adding Rows To Dropdown Menu

Nov 28, 2011

I created a Validation list from 2 to 20. I want to have it (the list) add a row every time you select the proper data.

Example: If I want to add 2 row I would select the 2 in the drop down menu. If I need 5 rows I need to select 5 from the drop down menu.

Is this a VBA code? Or can I use a formula?

Dropdown Menu Data Validation?

Sep 12, 2012

I am trying to create a drop down menu in Excel to display certain values but it's not working. I want to input certain data in the cells. eg, 019, Quebec, Agent, Direct etc. I want to create a drop down list where if 019 is selected, all 019 entries would show up hiding all others. When nothing is selected all values would show up. I created a list but if I have 10 "Agent" entries in the cells, the drop down list also shows 10 "Agent entries rather than letting me select "Agent" and then displaying all agent entries below. I don't know if it makes sense but I basically want to make it easier for people to look for certain entries that they need rather than going through the entire spreadsheet to find all 019's.

Dropdown Menu To Choose Dates

Jan 5, 2013

I want to create a drop-down menu to choose dates and if I choose certain date the data of numbers (23 sets of number (4 digits)) will comes out in the next column beside the drop down menu of dates, then if the 23 numbers already comes out it will highlight how many numbers are the same in the previous date to the current date. So, each time I choose different date the data for that specific date (23 numbers) will comes out.. I try to do it but I get error when I change to different date the data for that specific date doesn't comes out.

Retrieve Dropdown Menu Data Using VBA

Jun 21, 2014

Most of the information I need I am getting using standard web queries. But pulling data directly from drop down menus seems beyond the capabilities of a regular web query.

I only need the information that shows as the menu options. I don't need any information from the pages at those links. Nor do I need the links.

Actually all I really need is the option value information, and the date. So for the first item, I would be looking for, 7|2014|u 06/18/2014

Use VLOOKUP From Dropdown Menu Selection

Feb 27, 2007

I have a spreadsheet which is made up of 4 worksheets. I have a drop down menu on the front page (created with data validation). I want to be able to choose one of the 7 geographical areas from the drop down menu, then have a formula search through the other worksheets for rows of data with this geographical area in it. Any ideas on how to do this, I have tried with VLOOKUP but cannot get the formula to refer to the drop down menu for the first input, i.e. the geographical area that it should be looking to match.

Userform Database: List Records In A Sheet As Well As Search For Records In A Sheet

example of a database user form that will allow me to list records in a sheet as well as search for records in a sheet. I know excel has a built in feature for this but it is menu driven and I need something that is button driven and will allow me to resize the form layout.

If Function To Test Dropdown Menu Selection?

Jun 11, 2014

I am developing a spreadsheet at work that is very similar to one that I made at a previous job. I am using the same formula in each spread sheet, but the one I am developing now does not work, where the previous one works perfectly.

I have a drop down menu created with data validation. Each possible selection is one or two letters of text, or the selection can be left blank. The drop down is cell A12, and an example of the if function that is used many times in this spreadsheet is as follows:

=IF($A$12="L",1,0)

In the previous spreadsheet, the function returns true only when the appropriate selection is made. In the latest version, it will return true if the appropriate selection is made, or if drop down selection is blank. I have been able to work around this with the following:

=IF($A$12="",0,IF($A$12="L",1,0))

Making Dropdown Menu That Will Change Formula?

Dec 10, 2013

At the moment if a pupil has done foundation listening then I write their numerical result in, for example C3 or if they have done higher listening I write it in F3 (and it works out the UMS and then the grade), but I wondered if there would be any way to just put a dropdown menu in a column for each name, or change it so that I can type in H or F that will change which data is used? Because the UMS and grades are different depending on whether the pupil has done higher or foundation I am unsure how to format it

Formulas Based On Results From Dropdown Menu?

Dec 23, 2013

I am building a sheet that facilitates managers at our company decipher information that is given to them on a daily workbook I created.

I want to have a drop down menu in Col J, that refers to the major questions they will ask.

Time started (Before)
Time Finished (After)
Number of Cards (More than)
Stops Per hour (more than)
Amount of Time Taken (More Than)

I have set up in Col (K) a secondary drop-down list which based on the question selected in (J) will offer options for the answer E.G Time questions will make (K) refer to options based on time and selections based on amounts will offer numbers as an answer.

The elements in brackets are the parts of the formula that create the search option. E.G If select 'Time Started' it will search for all records that started before the time selected in the next col (K)

Right if that makes sense.. I have completed this. so I have the following: A question drop down list in (J), and an answer drop down in (K) which is dependant on the type of question asked. (I have attached an example)

I want to now have a totals box after the question where it displays a total amount of cols that are true to the details in the question.

After that (if possible) I will want to use conditional formatting to highlight the ones that reflect to the question.

Realistically if possible i wouldnt mind creating a question box, a box that allows them to select 'more than', 'exact' or 'less than' and then the specific value. Basically a conditional formatting box for dummies within the worksheet. Attached is a demonstration.
