I'm trying to create a set of three dynamic/dependent drop down lists of date values, based on a set of imported data. Depending on whether the preferred choice is to list all dates in a range or just dates on the 15th, the available start and end drop down lists will change.
In addition, if possible I would then like to display a list of valid dates (not sure if this needs to be VBA).
The attached sheet shows/explains what I am attempting but here it is as well:
If B3 is set to show all dates in the month then:
the first dropdown option for C3 will be the first date of IMPORT (D2)
the first dropdown option for C4 will be the C3 value, to the last date in IMPORT (D) column
If B3 is set to show 15th of the month then:
the dropdown for C3 will be the first date of IMPORT (D) column with a date of 15th the dropdown for C4 will be in the range of C3 to the last date of IMPORT (D) column with a date of 15th only dates of 15th will be listed in both C3 and C4 dropdownlists
the dates in IMPORT column D are taken from IMPORT column A, B & C, which will be imported and will always be date sequential the number of rows of date entries will change with every import but there will never be any blank rows between dates the values in IMPORT columns A, B & C will always be numerical, and can be referenced if required [ideally] the LIST OF DATES will be populated with the date range, based on the option selected in B3
I'm fairly familiar with Excel (2010) and I have also done some VBA but I'm new to dynamic, nested dropdown lists and I'm unsure what the most practical way is to achieve this.
My Excel 2007 has "auto complete with a drop down list". When I type in the first character, a drop down list appears listing all the entries in that column tha start with that character. I click on one of the entries and the cell is "auto completed" with that entry. Sure is handy. I try to find that functionally in Excell at work, Office Professional 2010, and no bueno for kaki.
I am using windows 7, excel 2010 I have a work book, my price list is sheet one and my list of customers and what discounts they get per item in sheet 2.
I choose customer on sheet 1, say i choose a & L sales, well on sheet 2 it shows they get a discount of 45 percent. so I want the 45 percent to show in cell 4r on sheet one, but if the dropdown box shows customer a & V it should show 35 percent because that is what it is on sheet two in cell 3c.
sheet two has 158 customers and each get a difference discount for that product
Creating a spreadsheet in Excel 2010 and am creating the dropdowns from a separate sheet in the workbook. There are no spaces and I don't know why I keep getting the "The Source currently evaluates to an error."
I am entering the Data Validation to reference the first cell I need "=INDIRECT(H3)"
I have put the spreadsheet on dropbox. When you select the "Sequencing Platform" drop down, it need to give just the dropdown for the platform selected.
I am looking to insert a drop down box in Excel 2010 which will allow users to select multiple items. At the moment I have data validation drop down lists in other columns, however I need one column to allow for multiple selections.
Basically I have a drop down which allows for a region to be selected, my next drop down (in the next column) I need to allow users to either select "ALL", or multiple countries which fall within the region selected previously. I need a check box so that users can select multiple countries, and deselect if an incorrect country is selected in error.
I'm using Excel 2010. I have developed a calculator (attached) to make life easier for my colleagues. It works perfectly fine. But one thing keeps bugging me.
In Cell C3 - You have the option to choose "Daily" or "Weekly" (Drop Down). This selection effects your selection for Cell C6.
If you choose Daily in Cell C3 then your options for Cell C6 are restricted to select/enter an amount between £0.00 and £6.00.
If you choose Weekly in Cell C3 then your options for Cell C6 are restricted to select/enter either £0.00 or £12.00.
This works perfect.
However, if I select "Weekly" and then select " £12.00", all my results are perfect which is exactly what I want BUT if I then go back up to C3 and change "Weekly" to "Daily", the £12.00 in C6 remains (though the data validation for "Daily" is restricted to £0.00- £6.00) and all the results are consequently wrong until C6 is changed.
The obvious thing is to delete the £12.00 from Cell C6 or introduce a "clear" button BUT I don't want my colleagues to do this as it leaves the possibility of error and since we are dealing with money, I can't have it.
So what I would love and what would complete this calculator and deem it ready is if every time Cell C3 is selected (i.e. from the drop down list you choose Weekly or Daily) it as a result resets Cell C6 to £0.00.
Data example is displayed below. I need to know how to find the average, not date average, but count. What is the average per day? Example on 2/9/2014 there are 12 entries but on 2/10/2014 there is only 1. Example: For all the lines of data that I have, what is average per day?
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.
I need to create a 2-stage dependent drop down list.
In cell G7 (on a tab called 'Data'), I have created a drop down list based on a range name called 'Region' .
In cell G8, I need to create a drop down list which is dependent on the value chosen in G7.
Problem is, I will need to create a dynamic range name here which needs to vlookup or match the value from G7 in a dynamic list of data (the data is on different tab called 'RCA Data' and is spread over columns A:E with row A for headings - the data will go down an undetermined number of rows)
Every time the value in G7 matches a value in the 'RCA data' (the potential matches are stored in column
D) I need the corresponding cell value in column C to be added to the dynamic list. This list then needs to be available to choose from a drop down list in G8.
I have a spread sheet that has three sheets, PROJECTS - TIMES - LISTS Time sheet.xlsx PROJECTS contains a list of 'In Progress' and 'completed' projects for work, with relevant other data, I.e. PROJECT No. / STATUS etc This will grow to 1,000's of rows TIMES will contain the amount of time a person spends on a PROJECT on a daily basis. This will grow to 10,000's of rows LISTS contain basic validation list for the first 2 sheets.
Part A I would like to have a validation drop down list for the PROJECT NO column in the TIMES sheet that only lists the PROJECT NO from the PROJECTS sheet where STATUS <> COMPLETED. I.e. I only want to display the PROJECT NO's for current projects.
Part B Even though I only want the PROJECT NO used, can the drop down list also contain other column's data for reference information only before one is selected.
I'm trying to make a simple chart, which maps the value of an investment fund over time. I wanted to use the new 'Table' feature within Excel 2010 to format and maintain the formulae within the Table, and the 'Header' for the table contains the date, which is not at regular intervals.
If I opt not to use the Table feature, I can create a line-chart with ease, and Excel recognises that the Dates are indeed dates and plots the graph correctly. The minute I convert over to a Table, the Date headers are no longer recognised as dates, and are instead plotted as if they were text, at regular intervals.
I've tried multiplying the Date Headers by 1 to force them back to true Dates, but this still does not work. I've also changed the setting on the horizontal axis to Date axis rather than automatic, but still no joy.
I have a complicated situation with Excel since I need a formula that can SUM data from the Pull 1 worksheet into the summary Sheet. I attached my sample for your reference because it is a bit complicated therefore I can not explain. It is better if you look at my Summary Sheet, need formula that can retrieve the same information.
I have done all the computation and final output was in the form of tables with different solution sets in one worksheet in an excel.
From the dropdown list (List of solution models), when I select one solution set it should pick that particular workout and populate the final output table in the new worksheet in the same excel. Firstly, I need to establish dynamic linkage between the drop down list and final output tables and then push the final table to new worksheet based on the option selected.
When setting up a Direct Debit There are 3 options, the 7th, 17th and 27th. I've put these into a drop down list. I need this list to be slightly dynamic. I must allow 10 working days from the date of the arrangment before I can apply the DD.
To explain further. If someone were to want to set up a DD and spoke to me today. If they then requested the DD be taken on the 7th, I wouldn't be able to set it up until the 7th of December as 10 working days are required. I'd like the list to reflect this. I can do it in OO with a simple if / switch but excel is a strange creature and I'm not sure how to approach the problem.
From that I think I also need to calculate the number of weeks remaining in the current financial year. I think I should be able to do this by using the Today() function and some maths.
I have a column with dates in each cell. I need the user to the able to pick a date from a list in the adjacent cell but it must be a date on the same weekday.eg if cell a1 is 23/10/2013 then cell b1 should display a list of Fridays in the future for the user to select from and then it should put the selected value in the cell (eg 30/10/2013).
I am using Excel 2010 .I have set up Data validation for a dropdown box so I can select from a list of items. In the old versions of Excel the actual drop down arrow used to appear in each cell. In the version I have, the drop down arrow only appears when you select the actual cell. When I did the validation I checked the " In-Cell Dropdown", but it still doesnt put the arrow in the cell. Is this functionality available in Excel 2010 ?
My second issue is a formula.
The last name is in a list of items and users have to select Yes or No to theitems on the list. I am wanting to create another spreadsheet that automatically populates based on their responses.
In short, I want to be able to set up a rule or formula that states if the answer in column A is "y" then I need the information in column B to be displayed.
The ultimate aim is to get a automatic sub set, (in another tab), of the orginal information based on users responses.
I'm running Windows XP with Excel 2010. I would like to be able to have a group of 19 boxes of which each box has a unique entry, ie 1, 3B, 5C etc. Each box I'd like to have a way in which when selected only the single or dual unique characters show as a color. See attached spreadsheet with sample. When a cell with lets say 1 is selected, a drop box appears and the color and description are shown. Select a color but only show the 1 and the color selected, leaving behind the description. How can I do this for all 19 boxes. This seems like its a classic conditional format. Unfortunately it appears to be several orders of difficulty than a normal conditional format.
I'm trying to add a sorting filter dropdown on some columns in a sheet. If I select the column, then use Data -> Filter, it adds the filter. on that column. But then, if I select another column, the "Filter" button in the tool menu is already selected, even though there is no filter for that column. If I click it, the filter on the other column disappears. Then, clicking it again adds a filter for every single column. It seems I'm not able to select f.ex. 3 different columns and add a filter to only those. It's either all or none. Is this how it's supposed to work?
I have seen in a number of spreadsheets that you can create a drop down list using data validation that hides certain columns depending on what you select. this leads me on to my question...
I have created a Gantt chart for an entire year and what to put a drop down box in C1 that contains four selections (Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4) to represent the four quarters of the year. I want to work it so that when the user selects Q1 it hides the columns where the other Quarters of the year are kept so you can only see that quarter.
If that is possible I would then like a second drop down box that allows the user to select a specific week.
I am trying to insert a Pivot table with dynamic Name Ranges. It needs to start from Cell B1 as Column A has hidden formulas in them. I created an Dynamic Name range and tried to insert a pivot table. Excel then throws out a error stating "Data source reference is not valid". I tried re-saving the document but still no luck.
