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.

Data Validation Indirect Where Multiple Values Show Specific List?

Feb 7, 2014

I have a data validation list where more than one value should show the same list. Instead of make multiple range, I want to make it so if any of the values are in a cell the data validation list will show the list that goes with those values.

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.

Jun 7, 2014

I watched a video on youtbe. And the women had three or four items in drop down box. She was using vba.

Use VLookup With Data Validation List?

Aug 20, 2013

All I am doing is setting up a Data Validation list of say 10 items then in another cell I am trying to use VLookup to pull the corresponding information required for the data selected in the list selection cell but I keep getting "N/A"?

Am I right in thinking that you can't VLookup from a Data Validation list? If not how do I get round this?

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 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 :: 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.

Why Values Not In Data Validation List Being Accepted

Dec 14, 2011

I have several data validation lists that are driven by named ranges. These ranges include blank cells in order to allow for expansion of the list easily - without updating the named range itself.

Seems like because of these blanks rows...excel is accepting any value. The list is visible and can be used, but the user can also enter in a value not on the list. (when I remove the blank rows from the range, the validation works properly)

Data Validation Which Allows To Select Values From A List

Data Validation List With Static And Dynamic Values

Apr 24, 2014

Is it possible to have a dependent validation drop box that under certain conditions automatically produces an actual value in the cell instead of a drop-down list to choose from? For example, if I choose “Holy Avenger” in the first drop box, and the value for that choice in the second drop box is always a “2”, can you get it to auto-populate in the cell occupied by that 2nd drop box (cell B5 in the attachment)? Or, are you restricted to using Lists only, meaning that you could create a List that only has the value “2” in it, and the user would be required to choose the “2” in the drop box?

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 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.

Removing Multiple Invalid Characters For Dependent Data Validation List

Oct 14, 2009

I have a list drop down that is dependent on a first list. The first list has numbers, spaces, and "-" at the beginning I need to get rid of to make it a valid name to reference. The "Substitute" function can't be nested enough times to make this work for me since I have a fairly lengthy list for the independent column which has differing numbers at the beginning. The first two examples of the independent drop down (which would dictate the second dependent column and drop down) are:

00 - Preconstruction
01 - General Conditions

I would like to name these something like "Preconstruction" and "GeneralConditions" for valid naming convention.

Second thought:

If character removal isn't the most efficient or possible at all, is there a combination of reference functions that could make this work? Ultimately I want to use these 2 drop downs for reference functions on a second worksheet.

Excel 2010 :: Countif And VLookup Of Multiple Values

Jan 15, 2014

I am working with an Excel 2010 workbook that has two worksheets in it. What I am trying to accomplish is I want the second worksheet to scan the first worksheet for a student's name, and count all of the instances that the student has a score less than a certain threshold (we'll say "5" for this example). I have tried using various combinations of vlookup and countif functions, but have not had much success. I did get it to a point where it worked, but only for the first instance of that student's name; it wouldn't continue searching the first worksheet for any other instances.

I have attached a sample workbook as a reference : Sheet1.xlsx‎

Lookup Data From Validation Drop Down And Return Multiple Corresponding Values

Jul 17, 2009

I have a worksheet containing a list of states in column A and a list of companies in column B (along additional data in columns C-L). I want create a lookup formula on a separate worksheet where users can select the state from a dropdown menu and it will return the information from columns B-L for that state.

For example:

A B C D
Alabama ABC Company Active Expires December 2009
Alabama 123 Company Expired Expired April 2008
Alabama XYZ Company Active Expires August 2009
Alabama Larry Company Expired Expired May 2006

How can I do this without losing my mind? I've tried various Index, Small and Match formulas and none of them work.
