# Excel 2007 :: Data Validation With 24:00 Times?

Jan 29, 2014

I have a spreadsheet which monitors the hours employees work - one of the rules is that an employee must have 12 hours rest between shifts...

I am using the below Data Validation formula in column I to highlight when an employee has less than 12 hours rest and an alert to appear

=OR(AND(I4-B4=0.5),AND(I4-B4>=0,I4-B4>=0.5))

Now this works perfectly with the exception of when an employee finishes at say, 18:00hrs on a Friday, and starts at 22:00hrs on a Saturday - Excel Calculates the Rest hours as 04:00, when it should be 28:00

I've had a suggestion to use the following:

=I4+I2-B4-A2>=0.5

(I2 being the saturday date, A2 being the Friday date) - this does work but only for Cell I4, If I copy the Data Validation down the column all cell references change - is there a way to keep the I2 and A2 in the formula without having to retype in every row?

## Excel 2007 :: Data Validation Query - Sum Of Two Cells Less Than A Set Number?

Jan 6, 2014

I am wanting to create a validation rule so when two cells are added the together the answer must be less than or equal to 14:00 - otherwise a message box will appear

So for example if H7+I7 gives an answer of 13:00 in J7, that's OK, but if the answer is 15:00, the error box will appear. I know that data validation doesnt work on a cell that already has a formula so I'm hoping to use K7 for the Validation and then hide the column

## Excel 2007 :: Using IF / VLOOKUP Formulas INSIDE Data Validation

Sep 6, 2011

What I have attached is spreadsheet I've built to quickly generate an army list for a tabletop game. Anyone can click on the Force Organization Slot (FOS) and choose the type of unit and from there, select the specific unit name attached to that FOS. Each individual unit has a list of options/upgrades currently attached to the sheet from cells AD through AX and the points cost listed next to each upgrade.

For example, when selecting the Rhino unit from the Dedicated_Transport FOS, there should be 4 drop down lists of selectable upgrades (Storm Bolter, Hunter-Killer Missile, Dozer Blade, and Extra Armor). Currently, I have only named the ranges for the Rhino and Razorback units in order to get this working properly without having to go through the entire list of units and change names/create ranges/ect.

What I'm aiming to do is to create an individual drop down list that is directly related to the Unit Name cell in order to populate a complete and selectable upgrade list for each unit. I have played around with some functions that work in the spreadsheet (see cells X10:X12) but do not work properly with Data Validation.

Oddly enough, when I enter this formula under Data Validation:

I do not get an error, yet the drop down list does not allow me to select anything as I thought it would.

## Excel 2007 :: Data Validation Not Stopping Invalid Input?

Dec 1, 2011

I just have a basic data validation list. I used "List" and checked the right boxes and the file has been working before. Now the same file does not stop the user from typing in anything.

I re-did the same data validation in a new file and it works. Was there something in the file that prevents it from working?

I have Excel 2007. I saved in both xlsx and xlsm formats

## Excel 2007 :: Data Validation List Crashes VBA Macro

Feb 28, 2012

I have a VBA macro for Excel 2007 below that loops through a workbook and deletes a picture (shape) in a range at the top of each worksheet.

The macro works fine until a cell which contains a seemingly unrelated data validation list on Sheets(1) is changed. The macro then repeatedly trips up with a 'Run-time error 1004 - Application defined or object defined error'.

The cell with the data validation is outside of the range in which the shapes are deleted and does not set any of the variables in the macro.

Sub DeleteLogos()
Dim Count As Integer
Dim NumberOfWorksheets As Integer
Dim Logo As Shape
Dim LogoZone As Range
NumberOfWorksheets = Worksheets.Count
For Count = 1 To NumberOfWorksheets
With Sheets(Count)

## Excel 2007 :: Data Validation Based On User Input?

May 24, 2012

In the spreadsheet shown below I would like the user to select a project via a dropdown list in cell B2 which is from the data set shown in row 7 downwards. Then based on the project they select, they need to be able to see all of the locations associated with that project and choose in B3. Finally they then need to be able to select a team which is associated with the project & location combination chosen in cells B2 and B3.

## Excel 2007 :: Data Validation List Linked To Different Sheet?

Dec 11, 2012

I am using excel 2007

I am attempting to put a drop down list using "Data Validation". I can get it working when my list is on the same sheet (sheet 1) and the column of cells I want the drop down list to show up in....(you know..when the drop down list shows up in each individual cell)......BUT...when I put the list on another sheet (sheet 2) and try to do the "Data Validation" back on sheet 1, excel won't let me go highlight the list on sheet 2.

I even tried writing sheet2 and the range and that still doesnt work.

Aug 22, 2013

I have a worksheet with several data validation dropdowns that each link to a series of hyperlinks. When you click the dropdown and select the hyperlink, it opens up that particular file. All of these work, except for one of the dropdowns. Even though I can see and select the names, the link is NOT activated.

Is there some obscure excel feature that I am not aware of that is preventing this one from working? Why would this be?

## Excel 2007 :: Data Validation List Depend On Another DV List

Apr 29, 2012

I have a List of Different Fruits in Cells A1 to A5

Apple
Banana
Orange
Strawberry
Cherry

And I use data validation list in 5 different cells from Cells C1 to C5 then in every cell the list will show all the fruits,

But I want that if I select Any Fruit in cell C1 that should not be included in the remaining 4 cells, and the fruits selected in Cells C1 and Cell C2 should not be included in the remaining 3 cells and so on....

I Used the formula

=IF(C1=A1,OFFSET(A2,,,COUNTA(\$A\$2:\$A\$5),1),0)

But this works fine if I select Apple in the Cell C1, then the List of C2 Shows all Fruits other than Apple, But if in Cell C1 I select any fruit other than Apple it does not work... (Using Excel2007 & Win XP)

## Excel 2007 :: Convert Dates And Times In A Column To Numbers

Aug 11, 2014

I have a column in my data set that consists of dates and times in this format: 2014/08/02 01:46:49 PM. I am trying to convert these dates and times to numbers so that I can actually use these values for calculations and regression analysis. When I click on one of the cells, I get a number that is revealed along with decimals. For example, the cell with 2014/08/02 01:46:49 PM had a stored value of 41853.574. I tried to highlight the entire column of dates + times and click on the format cells button. I selected the number category under number but that did not work. I also tried to use the =DateValue(Cell #) function but that did not allow for distinguishing between the same date but different times.

What are my options for converting these dates and times to numbers that I can work with? Is there a way to get the entire column of dates + times to show each cell's numeric stored value?

## Excel 2007 :: Counting Number Of Times A Word Appears

Dec 12, 2011

I have a 2007 Excel spreadsheet (saved as .XLS) with worker names in column A and error types in column B. Column B can have multiple entries (which are sometimes duplicative of each other) separated by a hard return.

What I need to do is run tallies to determine the number of errors by type for each person, counting the value every time it appears, even if it is more than once in a particular cell. The ultimate goal is to generate a formula to track the number of occurrences for all error types types for the person in Column A (i.e. one formula each to track ABC's Procedural errors, ABC's Technical errors, ABC's Admin errors, DEF's Procedural, etc) though ideally I just need a formula to calculate any one of those and I can edit it to get the rest. Here's a sample screenshot:

The COUNTIFS formula is where I started but that only seems to count cells with the value as opposed to occurrences of the value. I did find this formula in my searches but it doesn't seem to work:

=SUM(LEN(B1:B100)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(B1:B100),"Procedural","")))/LEN("Procedural")

## Excel 2007 :: VBA - Export Meeting Times Dates And Locations

## Excel 2007 :: If Then Else And Validation

Feb 14, 2012

I am failing on the logic and syntax to achieve the following. Basically it has to take the sum of 1, or 2 fields and validate it against the value of a 3rd field. I can get it to work for 1 field if DefPercent = 100 but not when looking at the total of 2 fields if DefPercent < 100.

Fields:

- DefPercent (if = 100 LiabilityAmt2.Enable = False) (this works fine already)
- TotalLiability
- LiabilityAmt1
- LiabilityAmt2

Output Required: logic only

If DefPercent = 100 And TotalLiability LiabilityAmt1 Then
MsgBox "error....."
Exit Sub
Else continue

If DefPercent < 100 And TotalLiability LiabilityAmt1 + LiabilityAmt2 Then
MsgBox "error...."
Exit Sub
Else continue

## Excel 2007 :: Validation With ISTEXT Not Working When Number In Cell?

Dec 3, 2012

I'm trying to validate a cell in Excel 2007 that should contain only two letters.

Formula:
Code:
=IF(AND(LEN(A1)=2,ISTEXT(A1)),TRUE,FALSE)
When the value of A1 is JK, the result is TRUE
When the value of A1 is 12, the result is FALSE

When the value of A1 is 3K, the result is TRUE
When the value of A1 is K3, the result is TRUE

When the value of A1 is 123, the result is FALSE
When the value of A1 is JKL, the result is FALSE

When the value of A1 is 3, the result is FALSE
When the value of A1 is K, the result is FALSE

The LEN function works as expected, but the ISTEXT function does not, whenever the cell contains a number and a letter. I've tested the LEN and ISTEXT functions separately, and get the same results.

Is it me, or is it Excel?

## Excel 2007 :: Get Two Cells To Be Used To Adjust Other Cells On Same Sheet Repeated Times

Jul 7, 2013

I am trying to get two cells to be used to adjust other cells on the same sheet repeated times.

In a inventory sheet I have 5 columns as such , A1 previous balance, B1 Qty received, C1 qty on hand, D1 last cost, E1 current avg cost What I want, is to be able to enter my weekly received items in the B1 Qty received and the new cost in D1 Last cost cells and have them calculate my current average E1 and update my qty on hand C1 total. This in itself is not the biggest challenge. I was asking if there is a way that after the E1 current average cost and C1 qty on hand are updated by that formula, that the next time I enter a new B1 qty received and new cost in D1 Last cost cell they will update again basically without changing the earlier calculations achieved .

Example: Today I have item X with a A1 previous balance of 10 , with a D1 last cost of \$1, and E1 current avg cost \$1

I want to receive B1 10 more today at \$.50 D1 last cost, which ideally would end up showing

A1 previous 10 (or 20 if adding) , C1 Qty on hand 20, D1 Last cost .5, E1 current avg \$.75

Next week I want to receive B1 10 more at \$.25 D1 last cost , which then would update showing

A1 previous balance 10 (or 30 if adding), Qty on hand 30, Last cost \$.25 and E1 current avg \$.58

## Data Validation (restrict A Cell To Only Be Able To Input The Letter "i" Multiple Times)

I am trying to restrict a cell to only be able to input the letter "i" multiple times, almost like a tally sheet, in other words I want the cell to be restriced to one letter, but allow that letter to be entered multiple times.

## Excel Formula To Calculate Difference In Times But Only Between Specific Times

Apr 8, 2014

I'm looking for a formula that will calculate the difference in times between specific times while working with a 24 hr clock. Please see details below:

E3 provides the start time of 4:00
H3 provides an end time of 15:30

If an employee works betwen the hours of 0:00 (midnight) to 5:59, this is considered DIFF hours and is therefore the number I am seaking. So for the data noted above, the total DIFF hours worked is 2 hours.

## Excel 2010 :: Insert Row Data N Times Based On Cell Value

## Excel Custom Data Validation?

Jan 17, 2014

I am trying to use Excel to create some XML output that is formatted specifically for an application that I have. The application expects to receive time data for two columns in hh:mm format, i.e. no seconds. The standard Excel data validation and also the XML time data type all expect hh:mm:ss.

In order to get around this, I have used string as the data type and I want to use data validation to check the user input conforms to hh:mm. I can't see how to write the formula directly, nor how to apply the validation formula to an entire column (as opposed to named cells or ranges), and although I could write a function using regex, I still couldn't use this because all the examples I can find relate to checking a specific named cell.

## Excel 2007 :: Moving Data From One Worksheet To Another Keeping Data And Formatting?

## Excel 2007 :: Import Data From Worksheet Into Another And Group Data Into Sections

Mar 2, 2012

I want to be able to run a macro that will export some of the data from a worksheet called Generated Report into another worksheet called Matrix. The data will be taken Generated REport and grouped into sections of the worksheet. These sections will be defined by the BRID value.

The Data that i want to export will be from the first 5 columns within the Generated Report(note there are other columns which data is not required from).

The following columns will be exported from Generated Report -

BRID,Requirement, Bug Description, Bug ID and Alt Bug ID.

BRIDRequirement Bug DescriptionBUG ID Alt Bug ID
PQ115 PQ115-Login Bug Description text xihllloloj43712 123
PQ116PQ116-Landing Bug Description text ghghghgoot 43713 126

For Matrix

The data will be imported into Matrix worksheet into the following columns as part of the row headings

- Requirement, Description, Bug ID and VF Bug ID.There will also be other columns (outlined below) which i will use to manually enter data

The data will be grouped and imported into the relevant section by its BRID eg PQ115, PQ116 etc.

I want each section (marked by BRID number)to be separated by row headings.

These row headings are to be generated after populating all data within each BRID number.

When the data has been populated in each row there is a column called 'Status' which contains drop down list boxes which can be assigned.

The default status will be set to 'To Do'. The complete row headings are displayed with Output from Generated Report underneath

BRID Priority Requirment Description BugID Alt Bug ID PC UpdateNotes Actual Result Type of DEfect Test Status Tested by
PQ115 PQ115-Login Bug Description text xihllloloj43712 123 To Do

BRID Priority Requirment Description BugID Alt Bug ID QC UpdateNotes Actual Result Type of DEfect Test Status Tested by
PQ116 PQ116-Landing Bug Description text ghghghgoot43713 126 To Do

So far the macro that i have been using allows me to locate the data for each specific BRID in Generated Report and copy into the corresponding BRID section within the Matrix. I have to repeat this step for each new BRID and i want to be able to whole automate this process.

## Excel 2007 :: Using Formula On Filtered Data - How To Select Only Visible Data

But I actually don't want all the values from R1059 to R1167 - I want to select only the displayed values (R1059, R1068, R1077, etc). Is there a way to select only display values to use in a formula? The problem is it would be a lot of manual work to select them all - there are 50 or so instances I would have to select 13 manual values.

## Excel 2007 :: How To Combine Data Elements Into Single Data Object

Sep 23, 2011

I am building a rather good size userform. It is getting really lengthy code-wise because I want certain things to be enabled and disabled on the form as they click on certain options.

I know I can hard code the lines but so I am trying to come up with some coding elements where I will not have to add 20+ lines of code for everytime I want to add a new feature.

Here is one of the functions that I have, There is going to be several of these:

Private Sub chkMore2_Click()
If chkMore2 = True Then
cboProtocol2.BackStyle = fmBackStyleOpaque
cboApplication2.BackStyle = fmBackStyleOpaque
txtLowPort2.BackStyle = fmBackStyleOpaque
[Code] .......

So If I click chkMore2 ... all of the 2nd elements will be editable. If I click chkMore3 ... then all of the 3rd elements will be editable, etc. etc.

So I tried to play with this code example:

Private Sub CheckBox1_Click()
If CheckBox1 = True Then
Call Changeit(1, "yes")
Else
Call Changeit(1, "no")

[Code] ........

Excel 2007 does not like the .concatenate element.
