Excel 2010 :: Data Validation - Restrict Value User Can Enter Into A Cell

Oct 2, 2012

I'm using Excel 2010, and I need to restrict the value the user can enter into a cell (E9).

In cell E3 is the screen width (pixels). eg 6024
In cell E5 is the preferred width of a window. eg 450

The user, in cell E9, enters an x coordinate for which they prefer the top left corner of the window whose width is specified in E5.

If the value that the user enters in E9, added to the width entered in E5, exceeds the value of E3, (if E9+E5 > E3) then the value should be disregarded (window will be off right of screen) and the user re-enter.

I'm not familiar with the use of data validation, so I'm uncertain as to how to use it in this circumstance.

Named List: Data Validation To Restrict The User To Only Selecting Values In A List

Jun 15, 2007

I'm trying to use data validation to restrict the user to only selecting values in a list which I create. Right now, the list is a named range. I'd like to get rid of the range and just use a named list. I create a name using the following as my list.

Insert > Name > Create
Name: Fruit

Refers to:
banana,apple,orange

When I try to use the name Fruit in my data validation, I get the message "The List Source must be a delimited list, or a reference to single row or column." I thought my name "fruit" was a delimited list.

Excel 2010 :: Data Validation Won't Accept Start And End Date From Cell Values?

Mar 16, 2014

Data validation in an Excel 2010 workbook.

I want the date input to be restricted a start date and an End date specified in two cells on the sheet. However, when I set up the Data Validation, ANY date will be accepted.

As an example cell Z1 contains the date 1/3/2014 and Cell Z2 contains the date 31/3/2014, so in the Data Validation box, the Start Date is referenced to Z1 and the End Date is referenced to cell Z2.

But I can enter 1/9/2020 and the Data Validation happily accepts that date.

Excel 2010 :: Enter Formula Into A Cell That Is Pre-formatted To Accounting?

Jul 3, 2014

I am having a terrible time with Excel today. The version I'm using is Excel 2010.

I just want a simple division formula in a cell, formatted to accounting. This should be really easy, but it isn't reacting the normal way.

The simple division is =13588/12

The output in accounting format should be 1,132.33.

Every time I enter this formula into a cell that is pre-formatted to accounting, the result is 1132 1/3. It also erases my formula and replaces it with the value.

How To Enter Date In Separate Cell By Using Data Validation

Aug 19, 2013

I have used data validation to colour rows in one of my spreadsheets at work. The column that uses the data validation is the first column and has a drop down list of 5 words. One of which is collected, which currently indicates when the card has been collected by the individual in question and no further attention is required. It colours the rest of the row green. There is also a column that is entitled 'Date Collected'. Instead of having to input this manually, is there a way to automatically enter the date to be the date that the 'Collected' value was selected?

The title is misleading, I realise there will need to be some sort of IF statement in the 'Date Collected' column. It's been a long day already.

Data Validation: Restrict Drop-down Selection

Sep 4, 2009

I have two fields that do the same thing [preset selection vs custom entry], and I need to restrict one from holding any data if the other already does. One field is a drop-down menu, and the other is a decimal entry. It was easy to restrict the decimal from being entered if a drop-down selection has already been made - Data Validation prevents any entry unless the drop-down cell is blank. It's not so easy to restrict the drop-down, however, as it already uses List-type Data Validation to allow only values from a specified range.

Does anyone have any ideas for allowing the drop-down to function as normal if a specific other field or range is blank, but not allowing a selection to be made if that specific field or range already has data in it? I've attached a simplified example worksheet.

Excel 2010 :: Data Validation With Custom Function And Message Box Display

Feb 24, 2014

I have four cells c1 thru c4. The SUM of these cells must equal 1. I want to display an error message "sum of cells not equal to 1.0" but only when data has been entered in all four cells.

For instance =SUM(C1:C4, "<>1") should display the error message. Is there a way to write the formula with an IF statement and still use data validation with error message box?

Assumptions:
-Will ignore blanks
-Error message "Sum of cells are not equal to 1.0" until values in all four cells have been entered, not after a value is entered in a cell. (validate expression after all four cells have values or blank)

Scenarios:
c1 = .25, c2 is blank, c3 = .25, c4 = .50 TRUE no error message should displays
c1 = .25, c2 = .25, c3 = .25, c4 = .50 TRUE no error message should displays
c1 = .25, c2 = .30, c3 = .25, c4 = .50 FALSE error message should display after value is entered in c4
etc

What I don't want is for the error message box to display after .25 is entered in c1 because the user is still in the process of adding values. Can this be done using Data Validation in Excel 2010?

How To Insist User To Fill In Cell With A Value For Data Validation

Oct 4, 2012

I have a file where I need the user to fill in a value in a single cell (A1) in order for the data validation I have set up in column B to work. Can I set up a second data validation in the cells in column B? Or is there a way to enter a data validation in cell B11 that would error the user if A1 is not filled in, and circle the cell (A1) that they need to fill in? B11 currently returns the sum of B3:B10.

Excel 2010 :: Dropdown Data Validation Menu Doesn't Work When Opened On Different Computer

Aug 19, 2013

Using Excel 2010, I set up a simple workbook with a spreadsheet on one page and the ranges for data validation on another. I successfully linked the fields in the "Category" and "Tender" columns with the data on the second sheet, making nice drop down menus. Everything works fine on my computer. However, when we open the workbook on a different station, the drop down menus disappear. If you highlight any of the "Category" or "Tender" fields, the little drop down prompt is missing; they behave like regular, un-formatted fields. It appears that the data validation became un-linked.

We tried opening versions with certain fields locked (Mainly the Total, Breakdown, and Summary areas, but the fields with data validation were still editable), and also completely unlocked documents. Every time, the drop down lists were lost when opened on different stations.

I've attached the completely unlocked version : 00_FLEX TRAVEL EXPENSE REPORT_v3.xlsx‎

Forget to check a box or something? This seems way harder for me to figure out that it should be!

Data Validation - Control What User Enters Into Single Cell Based On Others

I want to control what a user enters into a single cell based on others.E.g.

A B
1 20 500
2 50 500
3 75 500
4 100 300

Column A is a thickness and column b is a width what I want to happen if the user enters a thickness in cell D1 and a width in cell D2 I want an error to pop up if for instance the user enters 100 as a thickness to only allow a maximum of 300 in the width. likewise if the user enters a thickness less than 100 in cell D1 to allow him to enter up to 500.

How To Enter Alphanumeric And Restrict Length

Jan 15, 2014

This question is about the need for staff to enter a code which they do manually - it is not a case of referencing a cell with a value in it and applying a formula to it to get the result I want as there is no other cell involved.

So they have to enter codes with the following format:
J0000000

Ie max 8 digits long, with the first letter being a J (it's always a J).

Can I use custom data validation to force it (so if the code was for eg J0000123 they could just type 123 and it would put the rest in for them??) - and would I set the cell to Number or Custom in terms of number format??

Excel 2003 :: Allow User To Enter Post Code And Some Details Will Be Returned Using VLookup?

May 8, 2013

I have produced a basic search/lookup facility on an Excel workbook that simply allows the user to enter a post code and some details will be returned using a vlookup. The document is going to be rolled out to a number of operational users so I want to basically 'lock down' everything I can in the document (basically everything except the data entry cell) and make it fool proof- I have locked all cells apart from the data entry cell and have made the file read only.

The only issue I am encountering is when the cursor is in the one 'unlocked' cell (i.e. the one the users will enter the post code into); it appears that you can break the document. For example, when the cursor is in the 'unlocked' cell, I am able to go to Tools > Options and change various settings including cosmetic colour changes but also cell calculation which breaks the lookup functionality. This is probably enabled as the cell is unlocked, but if I lock the cell, when I protect the document, it disables data entry!

if there is another way of providing this one cell for users to input data into for the vlookup to work whilst locking down the rest of the document to ensure that no-one can break it?

Excel 2010 :: How To Select Userform Button And Activate With Pressing Enter Key

Jul 2, 2012

I have developed a Userform button in Excel 2010 using the developer icons, which when clicked on with my mouse it runs my super dooper macro. It works great!

But one thing I want to have happen is to have the choice of using the Enter key to start the macro or use the left mouse button

For example, I place data in (say) cell A1 and the userform button is in cell A2. When I place the data in A1 and press the Enter key, the cursor moves down to A2, but doesn't highlight the user button. When I press the Enter key again, the cursor moves to cell A3.

What I want is when I fill in the data in A1 and press the Enter key, the cursor moves to cell A2 and selects the button, so that when I press the Enter key again, it activates the macro.

Forcing A User To Hard Enter Into A Cell

Is it possible to lock a cell so that the user must enter the number manually as opposed to using a formula.

There is a cell on one of our spreadsheets that the user should be hand entering the numbers from the general ledger this is done to ensure that the general ledger balance is the same as the spreadsheets totals. However most of the user insert a formula that just copies the number from above into this cell that should be hand entered.

Enter Fixed Data Pattern Based On User Input

Jun 21, 2012

I've been going round in circles with this for hours and have got no-where. I 'm trying to get Excel to paste in a set pattern of data based on an input cell.

In row 1 I have months starting in cell B1. B1 = April 12, C1 = May 12, D1 = June 12, and so on

The user would enter the data in column A, starting in row 2

If the date in A2 = May 12 then Excel would enter 10 in cell C2, 20 in cell D2 and 30 in cell E2. If the date in A2 is changed to June 12, then the previous data would be cleared and Excel would enter 10 in E2, 20 in F2 and 30 in G2.

Date would be entered in A3, A4, A5 etc and I would want it to post the same fixed data depending on the date the user enters in teh relevant row.

I've tried IF statements and also some code but can't even get near it working.

Excel 2010 :: Control ENTER And EXIT Event Firing With Frames Active?

Oct 22, 2011

I'm having some trouble getting control ENTER & EXIT events to fire properly when having controls embedded on frames within a userform. I'm using Excel 2003, 2007, & 2010. Here's the userforms I'm working with:

With FRAME:

Without FRAME:

In both cases, the DESCRIPTION field is disabled. The selectable controls on both are a combo-box, textbox, listbox, & 2 buttons. On the FRAMED version, the combo-box & textbox are contained on a FRAME.

Here's the code, same on both userforms:

Code:
Option Explicit
Private Sub cmbRecipes_Enter()
ListBox1.AddItem "ENTER - " & cmbRecipes.Value
End Sub
Private Sub cmbRecipes_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
ListBox1.AddItem "EXIT - " & cmbRecipes.Value
End Sub

All this is doing is posting a message to the listbox when the combo-box ENTER & EXIT events fire. This works as expected without the FRAME, ENTER is shown when the combo-box is entered and EXIT is shown as focus is moved to another control. But when running it on the FRAMED version all I get is a single ENTER event recorded regardless of how I move the focus through the control set.

Another oddity is that if I have more than 1 control that can receive focus on the FRAMED version, it appears to work correctly.
