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.

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.

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.

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.

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 -

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.

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)

Created Validation Drop-down List - Can I Make The Row Now Change To The Colour That Relates To The Selection From The List

Jan 13, 2009

I am trying to create a fairly simple spreadsheet with about 8 columns and about 400 rows. One of the columns features a drop-down list with about 8 or 9 different options. Dependant on which option is selected, i would like the entire row to change colour with that option.

For example:
FAILED - whole row changes red
SUCCESSFUL - row has no fill
Tested - row changes to orange

etc.

Is this possible within Excel 2003?

Validation List Based On Named Range Not Restricted To List

Dec 15, 2007

I am attempting to use a named range as my Validation data source but have two questions:

1) It seems when you use a named range as a source the user can enter in any data they want in that cell. I really only want the user restricted to the list I give them. If I enter the list manually in the source box then it works but I really want to use a named range

2) My range is fixed to 10 cells and the user can enter in as many variables as they want (up to ten). When a user clicks on one of the cells that the validation is set to read the range the user has to always scroll to get to the top. When selecting the cell Ecel always defaults to the bottom choice in the list. I want to minimize the VBA because Mac users will be using this and VBA seems to be touchy with macs.

Validation List: Wide As Widest List Item

Oct 28, 2006

I am trying to make some of my data validation dropdown list boxes narrower. I was told one way to do that is to use combo boxes. (If there are any other ways, please let me know!)

I don't think my combo boxes are working. I had tried to make a combo box appear in each data validation pulldown cell by using this tutorial:

http://www.contextures.com/xlDataVal10.html

I followed this tutorial word for word, but when I try to test the code at the end by double-clicking on a data validation pulldown cell, no combo box appears.

List Data Validation

Mar 18, 2009

The idea is to create a liquor order sheet which takes items and prices from a liquor inventory workbook, which is part of the same file. i'm sure that you can do it all fancy with a macro, but unfortunately i'm not super experienced with excel. so i helped myself with what i know a bit -> drop down lists. I created an extra sheet which has 4 ranges on there... the liquor type (liquor, beer, wine), and the 3 sub classes for each type (red/white/blush/sparkling for wine, draft/import for beer and so on and so forth). On the inventory i named the range of all white wines "white", of all red wines "red" ..

On my order sheet i created a drop down list for type and created 2 more via "indirect" .. so when you select "wine" in the first one, the 2nd one will ask you for white/red/blush/sparkling and the last drop down then for the exact item according to the range on the inventory.

Hope what i did so far is understandable ^.^

Now my problem is that i want the unit cost to be copied when an item is selected. So you select "beer" in A1, "import" in A2, "corona" in A3... and the price for corona (which is written in a cell on the inventory sheet) should show up in A4.

I attached a screen of the inventory sheet so that you can see how it is structured.

Data Validation - List Box

Sep 9, 2009

Hello, could some one please help me with the following:

I have created a drop-down list for the range : C3:C65000 using Excel 2003 and Windows XP Pro. I did this using Excel's Data Validation Tool. The settings I used are as follows:

Allow: List
Source: =GROUPS
Check Box Ignore Blank is Ticked
Check Box In-cell dropdown is Ticked

GROUPS = GROUPS!$A$2:$A$29

Now all this works well, such that when I click in the cell range : C3:C65000, then a dropdown list appears - showing a list of all my groups.

However, when I click on any of the dropdown lists in this range, the width of the dropdown list is only as wide as the column. Column C has a width of 20.

What I need please is for the dropdown list to be as wide as the list of information showing in the dropdown list. If some one could please explain on how I can achieve this - that would be great.

Too Much IF In Data Validation List Source

I started in the Data Validation List Source to fill in IF function but 32 inputs are not accepted and too much caracters in the source.

The formula is starting like that:

IF(A57=$M$81,Failure_C04,IF(A57=$M$82,Failure_C05,
IF(A57=$M$83,Failure_C06,IF(A57=$M$84,Failure_C07............
