Excel 2007 :: Chart That Reads Results Of Multiple Dropdown Boxes?
May 25, 2012
Using Excel 2007
I have six colums (Date; Skill; ST Hrs; OT hrs: Area; Type). I copied and pasted below a small portion of info from the spreadsheet. I know when I copy and paste into a post the information under the headers don't line up exactly...it appears offset, so basically "Date" is of course the date you see..."Skill"'s columns has the first item as nb-mech b..."ST Hrs" first item will be 0.00..."OT Hrs" will be 1.50...."Area"'s first item is "Log FM NO"....and "Type"'s first item is MX07
And there are 17,000 rows of this info and forever growing...a lot of repeated items in each column such as you can see "blaster" has multiple entries on 4/1/2012.
What I am attempting to do which I have not firgured out yet (i have tried array formulas but they bog down the pc forver and couldn't figure out exactly how to make it give me the results I needed...and I also tried sumproducts but that didnt get me what I wanted....and it is being requested of me to NOT make a pivot table but a chart.
What I am trying to create is is the following:
1 - cells to plug in a date range for example cell A1 I plug 4/1/2012 and cell A2 plug 4/30/2012
2 - drop down boxes for columns Skill; Area: Type, which show only unique records in each column
Once I have that, I could then filter all 3 itmes and have only items show in the date ranges I picked and present ONLY the SUMS of columns ST Hrs and OT hrs.
Once the SUMS show up, I can then have cells off to the side that will give a percent break down of what percent of the total hours (for the chose criteria) are ST Hrs and what percent of the total are OT Hrs....and this percentage break down will show up in a Bar Chart, per day chosen in my date ranges....I'm thinking one simple stacked bar per day in the chart.
So say, based on the info below, I wanted to see the total ST Hrs and OT Hrs from 4-1-12 to 4-2-12 for a nb-blaster in LOG FM NO and type MX06.....my result would be 0.00 ST Hrs...23 OT Hrs.....and my bar chart would be one simple bar peaked out at 23 on day 4-1-12.....and within the bar it would be 0.00% ST Hrs and 100% OT Hrs and maybe the total hours for each showing also..don't need that but it may be useful.. ..and no bar for 4-2-12 (because the criteria picked had no hours for 4-2-12)
I have been messign witht is all week and just can't nail it.. I do remember a while ago I would have been able to load the spreadsheet into the post and people could see it in excel...is that option to do that no longer on this site?
I am using a ComboBox in Excel 2007 in a UserForm. It is drawing on a row source which populates empty cells duplicates. How do I get the drop down box results to only show unique values and nonblank entries?
I am trying to make an excel sheet which has a 2 column drop down. For example I want to have a drop down list in column 1 and when I select "Item A" in column 2 "item A" 's phone number appears. If i select "item B" form the drop down this, "Item B's" phone number would also appear in column 2 and so on. how this is done (if possible) on Excel 2007? I was hoping it could be done from one workbook to another but If it is easier from one worksheet to another then that is fine too.
I'm trying to incorporate multiple conditional (Dynamic?) drop down boxes to enable me to get an appropriate code at the end of the process. This will be used to product data entry and the code will tell Amazon where to post the product. I have many thousands of codes that i need to access and the easiest and most accurate way is to break down everything in to category and sub categories until I eventually get the code I want for that specific product.
To return this code I would want to select Clothing, which returns a list which includes baby which in turn will give me a list that includes baby girls and so on and so on until I can select Tracksuit bottoms that will return the code.
Each list is dependent on the previous choice
As I have thousand and thousand of potential codes creating range list for each potential category and sub categories is not really feasible and would be very difficult to maintain when changes occur.
With this in mind I have created a code list that breaks the above example so that each category is now in it's own cell and there can be upto 8 (as I've seen so far) potential conditional categories before you return the code and ideally I would like to use this as it very easy to create and update. (see attached)
I might be able to use filters to return the appropriate list each time but don't know where to begin.
I want to select more than one drop down box at the same time, and copy them as well as rename the cells they refer to.
For example: in A1 there will be a box with LinkedCell set to A1 and ListFillRange set to B1:B5. I now want a similar box in A2, with A2 as LinkedCell. However, when I copy past the box in A1, it still refers to A1 and B1:B5 (the last part is ok). I can easily change A1 to A2 by just changing it in the properties, but the thing is that I also need these boxes in A3:A100. Is there any faster way of changing this?
Also, the ListFillRange might expand in the future. Therefor I would like to know if its possible to select the boxes in A1:A100 and change the ListFillRange to B1:B6 for all at once.
I have 3 dropdown boxes I created using the control toolbox which pull corresponding information from 3 different columns. I would like to be able to format them so that upon data entry in the first dropdown box, the subsequent two boxes auto populate with the corresponding data. Currently I have to select the information for each dropdown box manually.
I am trying to make a drop down list and based on what I select from the drop down needs to populate a different drop down list with information based on what I select.
For example: if I have Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3 and Sheet4. Inside of Sheet4 (My Main Sheet) I have a Data Validation (Drop Down list) in Cell A5 and Cell B5
I would like to choose Sheet1 from Cell A5 and in that same sheet (Sheet4) in Cell B5 I want to have a drop down with a list of names that are located in Sheet1 in Column A:A. Or If I would've picked Sheet2 in Cell A5 of (Sheet4), I would like to see a drop down with a list of names in Cell B5 (Sheet4) that are on Sheet2 in Column A:A . Is this possible?
So far I could achive it if information I want is located on the same Sheet. But I need it to work if info is located on different Sheets
I am trying to create a price calculator for a particular product line which has multiple sizes and configurations. I would like to use drop down boxes so the user can select the size, type and attachments which will be narrowed down by the previous selections.
I would like the formula to be able to calculate the cost of the components based on the selections made. Based on some research I believe this can be achieved using data validation, indirect function and the vlookup function, however; I'm not quite sure how to go about this.
I have attached the document I have started for reference.
I have worksheet with 5000 rows data's including the comments in one coloumn.My problem is when I edit the comments,the comment box shows somewhere else is not showing to near the related cell.I am using excel 2007,its happen after the upgradation of 2003 to 2007.
I'm attempting something new, a dropdown menu using vlookup to find data . If i use the simple example below, using data from B-D on 1 worksheet, where i want to find people by county:
A B C D Search by County Name County Town John Sussex Brighton Eric Yorkshire York Jim Cheshire Manchester Liz Sussex Hove Sarah Avon Bristol
I've created a dropdown menu on a second worksheet,A2, by county search, to return a persons name,county and town. The problem is if i select Sussex i will get 2 names who live in different towns within Sussex. I've created a simple vlookup which works fine, but because of Sussex having 2 results, i created a second vlookup for the second result to appear in the cell underneath.
The problem is that for the results that only have 1 result, the second vlookup returns a the same result as the first result, which i dont want.
Is there a way where multiple results will be shown if they exist, but for one result to appear if only one result exists?
I wanted to create a multiple drop down lists (using data validation) in column B (50 in all, every 3rd line) whereby, multiple, comma deliminated, results would display in each of the cells - for use elsewhere in the spreadsheet.
I found some code (as follows) which worked perfectly for me
VB: Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim rngDV As Range Dim oldVal As String
As I mentioned above, I don't really understand the code and all I know is that the line about halfway down "If Target.Column = 2 Then" is defining which column (B) this will work in.
The problem I am having is that I need to protect the worksheet and the moment I "protect" the worksheet, the functionality of displaying multiple values goes away and the drop-down list reverts to only displaying one of the available values.
how best to do this (bare with me I'm not quite a pro at excel yet!). I'll attach my doc (JMP Excel Forum) so you know what I'm taking about. I've set up the data to work in a similar way to this, as you can see I've a table set up (Appliance Sheet) which feeds information to the Main Sheet which contains the drop down lists.
What I need it to do is autofill the wattage column (Main!F8 onwards) with the wattage for the device as described in Appliance!N3 or N4 for example. For the wattage column to equal 28 (equivalent to Appliance!N3) then the following would show in the dropdown selections Type>Computers SubCategory>Monitors Device>BENQ G2222HDL Status>On
Is there a way to do this with the set up I have?
I did have a previous version of the whole worksheet that each Device had its own table and I looked up the wattage using and If formula to lookup a info on the device and knowing where to look it up based on the subcategory
And I got it to work but it was getting to cumbersome to add in new devices and update the formulas. If attached that doc (OLD) so you know what I'm talking about. The last two sheets are the same sheets that make up the new document (JMP Excel Forum)OLD.xlsm
I really prefer the new way I've got it set up. Its easier to add new information or options to the dropdown list
I am been trying to do a drop down only with coloring in Excel 2007, need not want any text to be the drop down list instead need a color specific drop down list, so that i could type a free text in drop down, which would enable to identify the content through coloring.
I have the equivalent of Vlookup code(I couldn't get vlookup to work correctly) I am using Excel 2007. I have an array 2 cols x 1652 rows. I have another column of 6264 items. If a text item in the first column of the array matches a text item (minus 3 characters) in the longer column, I place the matching row from the array next to the item in the longer column. Whats not working is that the text never gets put in the cell.
I created a data validation formula for an Excel 2010 workbook that would only display client names who were assigned to the manager that they selected. The formula works fine in Excel 2010. However, when I open the same workbook in Excel 2007, the data validation type is reset to "Any value" and the formula is missing.
OFFSET is an available command in both 2007 and 2010. When I try to add the formula as a data validation list in 2007, an error indicates that Offset cannot access data in a different table. I have not been able to find any documentation which restricts the OFFSET command in Excel 2007 but there seems to be some incompatibility between the two Excel versions.
"Clients" is a sheet which lists all clients under each manager."Summary" is a separate sheet which contains the manager's name. Only clients matching this name will be available in the employee's client list.There are 50 "employee" sheets, each which should use this formula for data validation in the client column.
The error we received seemed to indicate that the above command could not access data on another worksheet. It is not an option for me to copy the client list onto each sheet that uses this formula. Are there any other options?
i want to make a dropdown list from excel 2007. I try data validation then allow then list then source but i cannot make the sheet 2 as the source of my dropdown list in sheet 1. i uses excel 2007 and my OS is XP.
I have cells containing large drop down lists (offering many possible entries). Is it possible to get excel to "jump" in the list or complete the entry automatically? If i start typing "aut", it should the drop down entry "automation". For your information, I just use Define Name and Data Validation to create the drop down list. Is it must be using VBA code or I just can use Define Name and Data Validation which has been I created?
I'm using Excel 2007 and am trying to set up 3 columns of drop-down lists each dependent on the choice selected in the previous column's selection. It seems like it would be easy to figure out but I can't seem to do it.
I've already set up the arrays for the lists and "named" them but can't get the cell to be formatted automatically according to the previous columns selection.
I need to insert a drop down box into my spreadsheet, and depending on the option selected, the formula used to calculate the value into another cell changes. How do I implement this in Excel 2007?
To put this in context, I need a list of acids in cell C3. Depending on the acid selected, the formula used to calculate acid concentration in another cell (D3) changes. I need a way to implement this.
Column A & B has a list of Supplier Part numbers and Buyer Part numbers as below.
Supplier P/N Buyer P/N
Cell D2 is an open cell that any data can be entered into as a search term. What I am trying to do is search for a Supplier P/N that have the characters "H", "G" or "E" in it, so entering "HGE" into cell D2 would display the results into columns F & G as below.
Supplier P/N Buyer P/N
I can easily do a formula for 1 character or a string of characters.
To complicate it further, if the search term has in this example has "YFF", I would like the same formula/code to workout that the result in F & G should show this time
I want a drop down calender to choose date from and found that i can use More Controls> "microsoft Date and Time Picker 6.0 (SP4)" for excel 2007 but it doesn't work with other excel and shows a "x" not recognised in some other machines.
I am trying to limit the user from selecting only what has been selected from the first selector. The selection are based on a drop down (data Validation list)

My drop downs are simple yes/no/NA witht a down arrow apprearing to the right. Works fine for all users except one troublemaker who for some reason sees the text and arrow as a mirrored, upside down image. It's not rotated to be upside down, it's mirrored so if you turned your monitor upside down you'd see the letters in the words backwards as if looking in a mirror. We're both on Excel 2007.
[URL]....When I select a name in column B, it populates column C's dropdown with that name's list of units. When I select a unity type in column C, I'd like it to automatically populate column E in the same row with the value associated with that unit. The values associated with a particular unit can be found to the right of the sheet. So if in row 2 I select Blake in column B, then Unit 5 in column C, I'd like column E to be populated with 14.
Edit: using Excel 2007.
I attached stripped down version of the sheet which is small enough to post. None of the things I removed should affect the topic at hand. The full sheet is available at rapidshare.
