Feeding Dropdown List Results Into Different Spreadsheet
Jun 25, 2014
I have to create a series of drop down lists with choices on it for people at the company to fill out to see how much time they spent on each type of project. The plan is to have people fill out a "daily form" to see how much work they did that day, and have the results of that feed into a "monthly form" to sum up how much they worked that week. One of the aforementioned drop-down lists have them choose between three categories of work, M, N and B.
I have to make it so that in the monthly form, the results from the daily form segregate themselves into the different M, N and B tables in the monthly sheet. To make it more clear, on the daily sheet, there is just one huge table. For each row, they are to input what type of work they did, how long they worked, etc. On the monthly data table there are three different tables, one for M, one for N, and one for B. I want to have the entries from the daily spreadsheet to feed themselves into one of the three tables in the monthly spreadsheet depending on whether M, N or B was chosen.
I have two Spreadsheets, lets call it Spreadsheet 1 and Spreadsheet 2.
Spreadsheet 1 has a list of partial employee names in column A. Spreadsheet 2 has a list of 500,0000 full employee names in column A and their phone number in column B and address in column C through E.
Basically what I want to do is do a wildcard search for the partial employee name, so like lookup Spreadsheet 1' Column A's *name* in column A of Spreadsheet 2. Based on the number of matches. I want to insert that many blank rows underneath the partial employee name, and paste those matched rows there, then continue to the second partial employee name lookup and repeat the process.
I wanted to create a multiple drop down lists (using data validation) in column B (50 in all, every 3rd line) whereby, multiple, comma deliminated, results would display in each of the cells - for use elsewhere in the spreadsheet.
I found some code (as follows) which worked perfectly for me
VB: Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim rngDV As Range Dim oldVal As String
As I mentioned above, I don't really understand the code and all I know is that the line about halfway down "If Target.Column = 2 Then" is defining which column (B) this will work in.
The problem I am having is that I need to protect the worksheet and the moment I "protect" the worksheet, the functionality of displaying multiple values goes away and the drop-down list reverts to only displaying one of the available values.
I need to put together a number of worksheets, each worksheet is to record project information that's happening at our production sites and all the tables are uniform in design. There also needs to be one 'master sheet' in which all the information added on the lower sheets is automatically added.
So basically I need to have four tables on separate sheets that feed information in to one table on a further sheet.
I am building a sheet that facilitates managers at our company decipher information that is given to them on a daily workbook I created.
I want to have a drop down menu in Col J, that refers to the major questions they will ask.
Time started (Before) Time Finished (After) Number of Cards (More than) Stops Per hour (more than) Amount of Time Taken (More Than)
I have set up in Col (K) a secondary drop-down list which based on the question selected in (J) will offer options for the answer E.G Time questions will make (K) refer to options based on time and selections based on amounts will offer numbers as an answer.
The elements in brackets are the parts of the formula that create the search option. E.G If select 'Time Started' it will search for all records that started before the time selected in the next col (K)
Right if that makes sense.. I have completed this. so I have the following: A question drop down list in (J), and an answer drop down in (K) which is dependant on the type of question asked. (I have attached an example)
I want to now have a totals box after the question where it displays a total amount of cols that are true to the details in the question.
After that (if possible) I will want to use conditional formatting to highlight the ones that reflect to the question.
Realistically if possible i wouldnt mind creating a question box, a box that allows them to select 'more than', 'exact' or 'less than' and then the specific value. Basically a conditional formatting box for dummies within the worksheet. Attached is a demonstration.
How I can generate a summary of model outcomes utilizing each of the items in dropdown list... The dropdown selections reference unique input scenarios to a corporate finance model. I need to share the collection of the model outputs (revenue, EPS, etc.) from all the unique scenario input options. Currently I select Scenario 1 in the dropdown, then cut-paste values of the generated results table into a separate worksheet section labeled "Results 1", then select Scenario 2 and paste "Results 2" values, etc. etc.
Is there a method by which to automate running through the dropdown selections and extracting the scenario results?
I have a dropdown box to choose a category. When the category is chosen it displays the relevant course names which corresponds to that category (this could be 1 course up to 10 different courses). Along with that course name it gives the relevant course overview.
This works exactly how i want it to. (thanks to Zbor from a previous thread)
I now want to expand further and give the corresponding course objectives for each course that shows up in the results.
I have attached a workbook as its much easier to see the dropdown box working.
Sheet 2 is the working sheet and sheet 1 will contain all the source data. I have highlighted the columns affected in Blue Blue column on sheet 1 will have the course objectives on the same line as the course they belong to Blue column on sheet 2 is where they will be displayed when the correct category selection is made.
The course objectives are unique to the course title and course overview.
I'm attempting something new, a dropdown menu using vlookup to find data . If i use the simple example below, using data from B-D on 1 worksheet, where i want to find people by county:
A B C D Search by County Name County Town John Sussex Brighton Eric Yorkshire York Jim Cheshire Manchester Liz Sussex Hove Sarah Avon Bristol
I've created a dropdown menu on a second worksheet,A2, by county search, to return a persons name,county and town. The problem is if i select Sussex i will get 2 names who live in different towns within Sussex. I've created a simple vlookup which works fine, but because of Sussex having 2 results, i created a second vlookup for the second result to appear in the cell underneath.
The problem is that for the results that only have 1 result, the second vlookup returns a the same result as the first result, which i dont want.
Is there a way where multiple results will be shown if they exist, but for one result to appear if only one result exists?
Is it possible to download search results in Windows 7 to an Excel spreadsheet? I searched for file names that started with a specific alpha character in a specific folder using Windows 7. The results came back with several hundred file names. I'd like to create a spreadsheet with columns for the file name and the sub folder name that contains the file. Is that possible?
I have a spreadsheet in which I do calculations, I need to do them many times and want to record on another spreadsheet the results of two cells. I would like to show the results as a string of values.
I want to filter my results using a combo box on my spreadsheet. I don't mind how this is done, even if it just hides all of the information which isn't relevant. I've done it with a VLookup but I want to be able to edit it easily without the formula popping up. So if you click Barlcays, only barclays appears. I'd also like a button to reset if possible. I've attached an example of how I sort of want it to work.
What I want to be able to do now though, is somehow, when someone sends the document back to me, create an FTP queue. I can do this with BulletProof FTP, because it allows really simple text queues. So, what I need excel to do is, when someone has finished selecting their files, is write the results to a text file like exactly like this (without the Line1:, etc.):
Line1: <text from D2> Line2: 0 Line3: 0 Line4: 0 Line5: ? Line6: <text from E2>
(then repeated for each row in the excel document until column A is returning blank)
2nd File Location: U:My Work FileName: 333.xls Worksheet Names: Pro _Ser1 Ser1 (A1) value= db Ser1 (B1) value=1
What I want is a master spreadsheet to 'suck up' data from all the Ser sheets within all Workbooks and populate the master spreadsheet with Column A =A1 Values from all the Workbook, Worksheets Column B=B1 Values from all the Workbook, Worksheets
When I am writing a formula that includes a lookup, it returns the # NAME? error in the spreadsheet. If I delete the trailing ), retype it, and hit enter then the formula returns the correct value. How do I get the formula to work correctly as it is written to the sheet from VBA!
Here's the line of code that writes the formula to the worksheet:
how best to do this (bare with me I'm not quite a pro at excel yet!). I'll attach my doc (JMP Excel Forum) so you know what I'm taking about. I've set up the data to work in a similar way to this, as you can see I've a table set up (Appliance Sheet) which feeds information to the Main Sheet which contains the drop down lists.
What I need it to do is autofill the wattage column (Main!F8 onwards) with the wattage for the device as described in Appliance!N3 or N4 for example. For the wattage column to equal 28 (equivalent to Appliance!N3) then the following would show in the dropdown selections Type>Computers SubCategory>Monitors Device>BENQ G2222HDL Status>On
Is there a way to do this with the set up I have?
I did have a previous version of the whole worksheet that each Device had its own table and I looked up the wattage using and If formula to lookup a info on the device and knowing where to look it up based on the subcategory
And I got it to work but it was getting to cumbersome to add in new devices and update the formulas. If attached that doc (OLD) so you know what I'm talking about. The last two sheets are the same sheets that make up the new document (JMP Excel Forum)OLD.xlsm
I really prefer the new way I've got it set up. Its easier to add new information or options to the dropdown list
I have six colums (Date; Skill; ST Hrs; OT hrs: Area; Type). I copied and pasted below a small portion of info from the spreadsheet. I know when I copy and paste into a post the information under the headers don't line up exactly...it appears offset, so basically "Date" is of course the date you see..."Skill"'s columns has the first item as nb-mech b..."ST Hrs" first item will be 0.00..."OT Hrs" will be 1.50...."Area"'s first item is "Log FM NO"....and "Type"'s first item is MX07
And there are 17,000 rows of this info and forever growing...a lot of repeated items in each column such as you can see "blaster" has multiple entries on 4/1/2012.
What I am attempting to do which I have not firgured out yet (i have tried array formulas but they bog down the pc forver and couldn't figure out exactly how to make it give me the results I needed...and I also tried sumproducts but that didnt get me what I wanted....and it is being requested of me to NOT make a pivot table but a chart.
What I am trying to create is is the following:
1 - cells to plug in a date range for example cell A1 I plug 4/1/2012 and cell A2 plug 4/30/2012 2 - drop down boxes for columns Skill; Area: Type, which show only unique records in each column
Once I have that, I could then filter all 3 itmes and have only items show in the date ranges I picked and present ONLY the SUMS of columns ST Hrs and OT hrs.
Once the SUMS show up, I can then have cells off to the side that will give a percent break down of what percent of the total hours (for the chose criteria) are ST Hrs and what percent of the total are OT Hrs....and this percentage break down will show up in a Bar Chart, per day chosen in my date ranges....I'm thinking one simple stacked bar per day in the chart.
So say, based on the info below, I wanted to see the total ST Hrs and OT Hrs from 4-1-12 to 4-2-12 for a nb-blaster in LOG FM NO and type MX06.....my result would be 0.00 ST Hrs...23 OT Hrs.....and my bar chart would be one simple bar peaked out at 23 on day 4-1-12.....and within the bar it would be 0.00% ST Hrs and 100% OT Hrs and maybe the total hours for each showing also..don't need that but it may be useful.. ..and no bar for 4-2-12 (because the criteria picked had no hours for 4-2-12)
I have been messign witht is all week and just can't nail it.. I do remember a while ago I would have been able to load the spreadsheet into the post and people could see it in excel...is that option to do that no longer on this site?
I am using a ComboBox in Excel 2007 in a UserForm. It is drawing on a row source which populates empty cells duplicates. How do I get the drop down box results to only show unique values and nonblank entries?
The results of the formula in cell K36 in the attached spreadsheet returns a value of null. It should be $1,200. Am I blind or have I done something wrong. I just can't see the problem with the formula.
I am trying to set up a spreadsheet with linked dynamic drop down lists, based on a table.Using the OFFSET function, I have managed to get this to work if the table is on the SAME sheet at the drop down lists. But I want to be able to put the drop down lists onto a different sheet, so that I can lock and hide the table.
I don't want to use the 'name based on the previous column' idea, as the table is large and will change weekly. the drop downs show all values, even duplicates, which I would like to get rid of.
I need to insert a drop down box into my spreadsheet, and depending on the option selected, the formula used to calculate the value into another cell changes. How do I implement this in Excel 2007?
To put this in context, I need a list of acids in cell C3. Depending on the acid selected, the formula used to calculate acid concentration in another cell (D3) changes. I need a way to implement this.
I'm creating a spreadsheet to keep track of my costs of production in an online game. Within the game there are a range of spawned resources that appear for only a short time before being unobtainable these resources have specific types that is shared between multiple spawns of the resource but each resource spawn has a unique name.
My first worksheet lists all the resources and their various qualities and the later worksheets are meant to allow me to choose from a list resources matching the requirements of the item I'm looking to craft. The example i have shown in the second picture requires Tatooinian Fiberplast and Lokian Wild Wheat to craft so in the Chosen Resource column I would like to have a drop down list allowing me to select the named resource type i would like to use - for Tatooinian Fiberplast the only thing on the list should be Omnitwixi and for the Wild Wheat it should show Fizi and Krad
I am aware there are people with more pressing problems than computer games and as such
Is there a way to create a drop down list from a comma delimited list in a single cell? For example, col A is Name & Col B is the delimited list - Blue,Red,Green (list can be different for each name). Would like a drop down list in col C that allows you to pick one of the values from Col B.
I found code online that I can put on my sheet to get my formatting properties to stay the same for the items in my dropdown list located on another page. However the code does not work for conditional formatted cells...which is what I need. This is the code that I have that will carry over regular formatted cells. Just not Conditional formatted cells.
