# 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 :: How To Add Validation Of Yes And No

Oct 11, 2012

I am facing issue in Data Validation,

Currently i am using Excel 2007, in that i need to add a validation of Yes and No.

After entering the Validation in the drop down if any one copy any data and paste in the cell(Validtion) the validation vanishes.

## 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 :: 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 :: 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.

## Excel 2007 :: Dropdown Lists Not Deleting Even After Removing Data Validation?

Jun 20, 2014

I am having trouble delete a drop down list inspite of selecting clear all from the data validation tab in excel 2007. When I hit Alt + Down Arrow, I still see picklist options. I didnt set up the spreadsheet, hence I am not sure how to begin troubleshooting.

## 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)

## IF Formula And Validation List (2007): Kick Over To "N/A"

Oct 22, 2009

In a single cell, I'd like to include an IF statement and validation list reference. The goal: if a cell is a certain value, I'd like all of the following cells in that record (row) to kick over to "N/A". These other cells currently reference a validation list. Otherwise, I'd like the drop-down lists to be available.

My thought was: =IF(a2="Support","N/A",...). For the ... false value placeholder, I was hoping to be able to reference the validation list. The error I'm getting when I try the IF statement in a validation list cell is: "The value you entered is not valid. A user has restricted values that can be entered into this cell."

## Data Validation In Excel?

## 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.

## Multi Column Excel Validation On Worksheet_Change

Aug 14, 2009

I have a fairly large spreadsheet with about fifty columns. Some of the columns have dropdown lists from named ranges on other sheets. The problem i am having is rather than filling in the sheet a row at a time the users are cutting and pasting the values in from other excel docs. Works okay but they paste over my dropdowns and validations making them useless. How can i use the Worksheet_change event to validate the columns that have validation lists whenever a change is made? Overkill- I know but I am using these sheets to load databases and if the value is not valid the load croaks.

## Excel 2003 :: Data Validation - Disable Delete Key

Mar 31, 2010

I'm using Excel 2003

Cell D7 - data validation reads as such: It is a List and the source is I6:I7. I have In-Cell dropdown selected. Ignore Blank is not checked.

I now password protect the sheet and only D7 is unlocked. real simple, the person using it can only use D7 and select one of two in the drop down menu.

The problem is, if the user clicks on D7 and hits delete, the cell goes blank. How can I avoid this?

## Excel 2011 :: Data Validation Dropdown List?

## Multiple Dependencies For Data Validation Dropdown List In Excel - NO VBA

Feb 7, 2012

So, I need to figure out how to make the populated contents of a single dropdown box dependent upon the selected results in two other drop downs.

As there are ~35K lines in the sheet, creating Lists is impractical, and VBA is out due to client security settings.

My data sort order is: Region Name > Area # > Facility Name

I have a drop down to select the Region I want to work in.

The drop-down for Area # populates based on the selection from Region Name.

The hang-up is that the area numbers are 1-4 for each Region.

So, I can't simply populate another drop-down for Facility from the result from Area #, but it has to be based upon the results of both of the former results.

## Excel VLOOKUP Multiple Values From Data Validation List

Dec 12, 2011

I've found a nice looking formula for looking up multiple values from a Data Validation List which you can find here.

Unfortunately I dont know why im getting a #REF! error for one of my spreadsheets. Here is my Formula {=SUM(VLOOKUP(A2,D:D,{6,7,8},0))}

A2 is the Data Validation drop down list that has most of the Values (Letters & Numbers) I want to look up. D:D is where it will find the Values (Letters & Numbers) and {6,7,8} is the currency I want added up and displayed.

I've tried this formula on other spreadsheets with success, but no success with the spreadsheet im working on currently.

## Excel 2011 :: Using OFFSET And COUNTIF Inside Data Validation?

Oct 1, 2012

I have a from that work great in PC but if opened in a MAC, some of the functions will not work.

For example, There is one cell with Data validation that based on the value selected in another data validation cell, it should only display all possible options pertaining to value chosen. These are the values: a user select a customer based on customer name. The Data validation will the put the customer number in cell AF3. In another call with Data Validation I have this formula:

"=OFFSET(SHIPTO,MATCH(AF3,SHIPTOColumn,0)-1,2,COUNTIF(SHIPTOColumn,AF3),1)"
SHIPTO is the Name range for the tabs called SHIPTO with "Shipto!\$A\$1"
SHIPTOColumn is the Name Range for "SHIPTO!\$A:\$A"
Column A is where the customer numbers are.

This work fine in a PC but not in the MAC using excel 2011

## Excel 2010 :: Assign Macro To Value In Validation Dropdown Menu?

Feb 28, 2013

I have a validation drop down menu with the 12 months in it on Sheet 1. User picks the current month from the drop down list. I have 12 macros in the workbook, one for each month. Based on what month the user selects from the drop down, I would like to run a specific macro. The macro hides specific columns on sheet 2 of the workbook.

for example...user picks May from drop down which triggers macro MAY to run. If user picks Jun next month, macro JUN will run.

fyi...I'm using Excel 2010.
