Fire Chart VBA Code On Validation List Choice

May 8, 2009

very complex spreadsheet for weight & balance calculations. It's to the point where everything works perfectly in Excel 2007, but it must be used primarily with Excel 2003. Discovered that a crashing problem had to do with condtional formatting, that's all been cleared and will soon be fixed, but there's one that I just can't quite figure out.

I'm using the worksheet change event to trigger the update of charts... In this case, it's looking at a particular cell that has data validation on a dropdown as the trigger. Works perfectly in 2007, and if I put a msgbox prompt in to be launched by a change of that cell, it launches. I can put the chart update code in a separate sub and launch it manually every time, but I cannot call it from the worksheet change.

I've included attachments showing what I believe are the relevant bits of code -

Force Choice From List: Data Validation List

Oct 18, 2006

is there a way to force so that a cell value can be only of what a validation droplist offers, hence users can not enter their own values and have to use the droplist for cell content selection.

Range Populated By Choice In Validation List

Mar 12, 2009

I have a Range on one sheet formatted like this and sorted by Sup then Rep:

Rep Sup
John Sally
Mark Sally
Joseph Sally
George Betty
James Betty

etc..

I have a Validation Drop Down list where a Supervisor is chosen. There's a specific range that I would like to automatically fill in with the reps assigned to the Sup. This is driving me crazy! I already know how to obtain that list as another Validation Drop Down, but not quite sure how to make those values appear in a range instead of a Validation List.

Validation List Choice To Copy Row From Another Sheet

Dec 17, 2008

I need to get data copied from sheet1 to sheet2
depending on selection in a validation list.

The data is on the same row and all the same range.
So it would look something like this.
A B C
Fruit Orange Apple Pear
Veg Potato Carrot Onion
Animal Bear Cow Dog

I have the data in A in a dynamic range and validation list.
I need all the data copied from the specific rows ie
choose Animal from the validation list in Sheet2!A1 and
the entire row Bear Cow Dog get copied to Sheet2!B1, Sheet2!C1, Sheet2!D1.

The second problem I think is a lot more complex.
So the same scenario above but this time its a multi select on Sheet3.
I need to be able to select two (or more depending on Fruit and Animals to display in A1, A2 and then their valid options to appear in B, C and D

Return Value Based On Validation List Choice

Nov 14, 2006

I have created a cascading data validation list, and I would like to have an adjacent cell auto populate according to the dropdown selection.

Data Eg:

Oranges 1100
Apples 1101
Pears 1102
Grapes 1103

If the user selects "Pears" from the dropdown list, I would like the adjacent cell to populate with the numerical code for "pears", in this case 1102. I am designing a new expense report form at the office, and I am at a standstill with this problem.

Run Macro Based On Validation List Choice

Sep 3, 2007

I'm looking for a method, vba macro or Excel code, to preform the following task:
In the C column the user chooses one of several options from a menu, let's call these options 1 - 10 (this part is already done). Depending on the choise, different things are supposed to happen:

For 1-9, the formulas for cell A - Q on the current row should be copied to the next row (but with +1 in row number in formulas of course).

For 10, 3 blank rows should be created (well they already are blank..), on the forth row down, A3 - Q3 should be copied exactly. On the fifth row, the same formulas thing that was created for choise 1-9 should be created.

Since the real xls-file is too big already and it contains some sensitive information, I can't attach it here, but I made a small and similar xls-file, that better explain what I want to do.

Validation Choice From Pull Down List Triggering A Warning Box

Sep 19, 2006

Is there a way to trigger a warning box (ie - must be divisible by 50) when a specific entry is selected from a pull down validation list? The triggering factor is a correct answer to the validation so I do not think the error alert will work in this instance.

Insert Row Based On Data Validation List Choice

Aug 10, 2008

I'm working on a simple worksheet, it is a tracking sheet for programs taught. What I'm trying to find is a code to insert a row based on a Data Validation List.

Exampl of data:

Column A is for " Name" then futher down Column K is "Program Taught" and Column L is " Date Taught".

Column K is where the Data Validation List is located with a in cell drop down.

What I would like to do is when a user selects a program from Column K a row is inserted with all of the formulas and formats from the previous row, and upon insert would like it to copy Column A into the new row.

This would be so I can keep a historical of programs and dates taught.

And to really spice things up I want to lock Columns K & L of the previous row after the new row is inserted.

Lookup Data For Drop Down List Choice & Show Blank If No Choice

Feb 6, 2008

I currently have a drop down menu in one of my worksheets, in which I have several different text values entered. What I would like to do is link each of those text values to a numerical value, which would be entered in to another cell. So if I select "Option A" from my drop down list, and Option A is equal to 200, I want "200" to show up in another cell. If I select "Option B" from my drop down list, and Option B is equal to 400, I want "400 to show up in that same other cell.

SaveCopyAs. Code Failing To Fire.

Jan 28, 2009

I have an Excel 2007 workbook with over a dozen user forms and plenty of code that I have mainly obtained from the web and tweaked to suit my needs. I am a novice with VBA, so not really up to writing anything but quite simple code.

My issue is I have some code set to fire on Workbook_Open that will save a versioned copy of the workbook, to the same network folder that the original resides in, with an incrementally increasing file name. the file is stored on a network, but access should not be an issue as I have full access and have no problem saving to this folder, also the event works fine up until I shut down Excel. I have also tried saving to My Documents to avoid the network issue, same result, worked fine as long as Excel is not closed, fails if I do.

It all works fine until I close down excel completely and re-open, where it then fails to work. There are other events happening in the same Workbook_Open sub that still work fine each time, so the sub is firing on open, but this one event fails. I get no error message at all, just no new file copy created.

The workbook is essentially doing the job of an Access database (I know even less about Access), I have a user form as a main menu and various other forms for various data entry and reporting tasks. I am exiting the w/book via a cmd button on the main menu (I've deliberately restricted users control, as many are not very pc literate). I have conducted numerous trials consisting of running the code from the VBA window, closing w/book via cmd button WITHOUT accepting the std save option and re-opening from Explorer window, closing w/book via cmd button WITH accepting the std save option and re-opening via Explorer and all worked perfectly over many sample runs. But when I closed Excel totally (Not just the w/book), created a desktop shortcut and opened from there, that line of code just doesn't seem to do anything, no error or hang or anything. The only way I can get it to function again, is to re-save the w/book (As either a new file with code edited to suit, or overwrite the original), and keep Excel open whilst only closing this w/book. It then functions perfectly again on opening.

I have enclosed below the Workbook_Open sub and some other subs that append to a user log on opening, these work fine all the time. I enclose the others in case they may have some bearing, as they are also fired from the Workbook_Open sub and show no issues at all.

Any suggestions gratefully accepted as I am struggling. As mentioned above, the ONLY part of the Workbook_Open sub that fails is the line "ThisWorkbook.SaveCopyAs newFileName". I have even added "MsgBox "The new FileName is: " & newFileName" immediately after it, and that displays new filename correctly. It seems to me to be hingeing around the SaveCopyAs event, but I don't want to assume that, being the novice I am.

Changing Chart According To 3 Selections Of Validation Data (list)

Nov 28, 2012

I would like to find out how can I create a chart, where it is interacting with the selection of 3 drop down list (created from data validation-list option). It will show up to 12 months of data.

First list would have only Male & Female, 2nd list would have 1st Class, 2nd Upper, 2nd Lower, 3rd Class and Pass Only, 3rd list would have all the months of 3 years.

My data is from J9:U22. These data needs to be changed accordingly, reading from D45:U58.

For the graph, if I select Male, 2nd Upper, and Jun-2012, I want it to show only this selection, where the period will be from Jul-2011 till Jun-2012.

Previously I have done one, with only 1 selection of drop down list, where I used Vlookup. Now involves 3 criterias.

Or is there an easier way to do it?

In cell I2 I have a data validation list. If the selection is "2" then I want to copy and paste a value from another cell to another sheet.

I did a recorded macro but the code does not recognize the selection from the data validation celll, I2.

Create Range List Code For Data Validation

Sep 29, 2007

I am using following code to apply data validation list. However this code gives error Intermittently. The error message is 'Application defined or Object defined error'. Also this code looks little cumber some. Will really apprciate if any one can put some ligh on why is this error appearing sometimes. Do I need to change something in the code or add few extra lines. I feel following points will be necessary when you check my code

1. The data of validation list is stored under the column heading 'Reported_By_List'
2. Validation is applied on the range under the column heading 'Reported Through'
3. Start and last Cell Address Of the cells of the column in which data of validation list is
stored are extracted into the variables 'StartCellAddress1' & 'LastCellAddress1 '
4. Start and last Cell Address Of the cells of the column on which data validation will be
applied are stored are extracted into the variables 'StartCellAddress2' &
'LastCellAddres2'

Sub Validation1()

Dim wsName As String
Dim RValue As String
Dim WorkBookName As String
Dim StartRow As Integer
Dim StartColumn As Integer
Dim LastRow As Integer
Dim CellAddress As String
Dim ColumnAddress As String
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
WorkBookName = ThisWorkbook.Name
wsName = ActiveSheet.Name...........

Linked Validation Lists & Lookup Based On Choice

Aug 12, 2007

I'm trying to continue on this post: Populate Cells After Choice From Drop-Down

I'm trying to expand on CNL's idea. What I need to do is create a spreadsheet that autopopulates two blocks based on the dropdown box that preceedes it. I've got it to partially work, but can't figure out the next step. The differnce between my sheet and CNL's sheet is my drop-down is an indirect data validation.

The easiest would be to have my data in one long list, but my goal is to make it easier on the user to find the specific procedure (I'm trying to build a budgeting spreadsheet for a medical office). So in box A15 there is a list of the different service area, which gives a list of choices in C15 based on the choice selected in A15. My goal is to have G15 and G16 list the cost and charge respectively.

M1 - O3 is the data for Radiology
Q1 - S4 is the data for Labs
U1 - W4 is the data for Office

Code That Automatically Run After Selecting Item In Data Validation Dropdown List In Column C

Oct 12, 2011

I have a dropdown list in C24:C50 (=CategoryList) with data validation and a sub list in D24:D50 (=ItemList) with data validation. I am looking for a way to have code automatically run after selecting an item in the data validation dropdown list in column C.

Example; I click on C24 and make a selection. I what it to trigger code that would move me to D24 and open up the data validation list in D24. After the selection in D24 I would like it to move me back and down 1 row to C25. I have not found anything directly related to this but I have found that code can be run after a selection in a valadition list.

Data Validation - Creating Subset Choices Based On Adjacent Column Choice

Oct 27, 2013

I am limiting choices in a certain cell to a list via data validation (using data validation, allow - list and pointing to the source). I want to limit the next set of choices in the next column (in this example in Column C) for the user based on the choice made in the adjoining cell. For example to keep it simple I will use the following: if the user selected "Fruit" in B1, then the options in C1 would only show "Oranges","Apples", "Pears". If however the user selected "Veg" it would only show "Cucumber", "Lettuce", "Spinach", "Radishes" in the drop down in column C. I can put a prefix in front of the column C data validation list if that is needed to narrow down e.g. FR-oranges, FR-apples etc.

A B C
1 Fruit Oranges
2 Veg Lettuce
3

Data Validation source for Column B (H2:H4)
Fruit
Veg
Nuts

Data Validation for Column C: (I2:I10)
Oranges
Apples
Pears
Cucumber
Lettuce
Spinach
Radishes
Almonds
Peanuts

Make A Choice In An Extensible List

Jan 13, 2007

I have to introduce often the same entry (i.e. a firm or commerce name).
To avoid having to make all te time the same entries and to avoid entring the same firm with different spellings I imagine making a choice from a list, list that would be able to "learn" new entries.

Example: When I type the "D" of "Dupont de Nemours", Excel would propose all entries beginning with a "D", and if I introduce a name that doesn't still exist in the list, I should be made attentive to that fact and proposed to add that name to the list.
