I have two columns, Account Number and Account Type. I already use Data Validation on Account Number to make sure it is numeric and on Account Type to make sure the user picks from a drop-down list. I want it so that if a user inputs an account number, it forces the user to automatically pick from the drop-down menu in the account type column, otherwise post an error.
I have a sheet in a work book which will act as the "Purchase Order" sheet. I would like to have the sheet include a drop down which would allow me to choose from a list of vendors which would print on the purchase order.
I have a sheet that has drop-downs with totals affiliated with each option. This is a time recording sheet and I would like for each drop-down type to be totaled accordingly. Any help with an equation would be greatly appreciated.
If you have any suggestions, I can send you the document for review.
Is it possible for data like "ABC /sdfsd/sdfs/sdf/sdf/sdf/" to be viewable in a drop down but when selected to appear only as "ABC" in the spreadsheet? I need to be able to see the full line of data when selecting my choice from the drop-down but for readability-sake in a printable spreadsheet only want "ABC" to be displayed.
can you have col A contain a drop down and then column B include an if then statement that would result in another drop down? IE. Column A has drop down with options of "A", "B", and "C", if the user selects "A", then a drop down would appear in column B containing options "1", "2", and "3". But if the user selects "B" in column A, then a different drop down appears in Column B with options "Yes", "No", and "Maybe"...etc....
First post so please excuse me if this has been covered before but I am trying to get the results of a dropdown menu in one worksheet to become the criteria for a filter in another worksheet (both in teh same workbook).
I thought I could just add a reference to the dropdown cell into the autofilter (in VBA editor) but it doe't seem to be that simple.
trying to shred the last bits of fat for the summer and thought I'd try a Keto diet, this depends heavily on not eating very many carbs, as well as keeping your total Kcal intake below maintenance.
This makes for a fairly tricky diet, as most things you generally eat contains alot of carbs, so I thought I'd make planning my meals easy, by creating an excel sheet, with drop down menues for different foods/drinks as well as their nutritional content.
I''d like it to look something like this, with the dropdown list under "Food" ....
I have an analytics sheet where I have a client name chosen from a drop down via validation. The problem I am running into is that while I want information from a data table to populate a cell based on the selection from the validation, I also want the cell to populate based on a second drop down box (basically selecting a time frame). Take the example data table below:
Client Jan 2009 Jan 2009 Target etc etc Client A 1111 1290 Client B 900 750
I would like the user to be able to select Client B and then, from a separate drop down, also choose, say, Jan 2009 Target and then another cell would populate with, in this case, 750.
I'm having a difficult time figuring out out to coordinate two cells together.
If a "1" or "2" is entered into cell A1, I would like cell A2 to have a drop down menu show a "0". If a "3" is entered into A1, I would like B1 to have a drop down menu show "1" or "2". If a "4" is entered into A1, I would like B1 to have a drop down menu show "3" or "4". Lastly, if a "5" is entered into A1, I would like B1 to show "5" or "6".
I don't know if this is possible without using VBA.
I am building a template in Excel and I want an error message (or any message) to appear to the user if they select from a static drop-down the same option in column I as in column J (i.e. they have to pick something different in each case).
Issue is I can't exclude any options from the second validation because, essentially, it's the same list. So if, on one row, a person picks "Bill" in column I, they can't pick "Bill" in column J. However, if they have picked "James" in column I, they can pick "Bill" in column J.
Don't know if this is well explained enough but would appreciate any tips on this - I've tried messing about with validation, conditional formatting, putting an IF statement in the next column and so forth but I haven't found a method that isn't convaluted and easy for the user of the template...
I've created a spreadsheet that has two drop down lists. Based on what the user selects from the first list, the second list is populated. It's working great except for the items in the first list that use special character, such as a -, or &. If necessary I can upload a small example of how I have my sheet set up, but I think I found it on this site!
Now he has another task that I am not having any success with. He has asked if we can make an Excel spreadsheet that allows us to access a list of customer units from a drop down menu which is in another workbook, and once you choose that particular unit, another drop down menu will allow only those customers who are assigned to that unit to be selected from that sub-menu. I hope that makes sense.
Say customer A1 (we will call him Delta Co, 2-1 Aviation) is selected from this first drop down menu (which I haven't figured out how to make yet either). Then this selection would access another worksheet in that other workbook with a new drop down menu with only the four customers in that unit. As an example we will use the names SSG Wilson, SGT Jackson, SFC Jones, and SGT Phillips.
So when the Supply Tech here opens the spreadsheet, the first drop down menu, he will select Delta Co, 2-1 Aviation. Then the next menu will only show four names, and he will select SFC Jones.
Once we get this going, I may be able to figure out the other things the commander wants, if not I will be back.
I am trying to build a spreadsheet containing data validation (drop-downs). So far, so good.
* I want to have various cells show dropdowns based on the value of a cell (per row) which itself can be changed by the user using a drop down.
* I want to have the same various cells show dropdowns that are also based on the value of a cell which has a fixed value per column (in other words, a header).
I have tried a lot of different approaches, including using the INDIRECT function, named ranges, dynamic ranges using a table, INDEX and MATCH. All have failed.
The main issues I see have to do with the fact that my data has several possible values for each given header and classification. Also all values are not unique.
The best result I have ever got returned a dropdown list based on the header bot returned the entire column rather than limited to the classification values. So for example I had all instances of 'Main Colour' to choose from, not just those of the classification value.
I'm currently developing a calendar that has a list in it with lets say 4 options. What I want the calendar to do is calculate at a specific 'cell' the number of entries that are selected during the month.
The idea is to have a drop down on each 'day' and a counter that calculates the number of times one specific options has been selected. Once the option has been selected the 'day' will change to the corresponding color.
to make the user experience better by inserting the " Stock Search" sheet to speed up the process. The spreadsheet attached is a simplified version of the current version, where it would normally have many many more sites, areas and models of cars. The existing process means the user has to trawl through the sheet where they are only interested in what sites in their area has stock. I can not change the format of the "Red" and "Yellow" sheets so hoping to insert another sheet to do the work.
I am hoping to have on the "Stock Search" sheet a few drop down boxes.
The user will select
1. Area 2. Type of Colour (the type of colour selected should link with the sheet name in effect, so only stock within the "Red" sheet will be shown if the "Red" colour is selected from the drop down box) 3. Model of Car
This will then give the resulting Store/Stores with stock (value 1 or above) with those conditions met which is showing in the relevant sheet
So as per the attached sheet, if a user selected Area "South West", "Red", "Renault Megane"
then SO10 Clifton 1 and SO15 Yeovil 3 would be shown in a list.
I have a fantasy baseball spreadsheet I've built. It includes player projections and people can input their league details. It then creates custom player cheatsheets for the user. There are a number of form options including buttons and drop-downs.
I've created this spreadsheet for a few years. For some unknown reason, since I finished version 2.0 of 2007 a few people have emailed me indicating they cannot see the form options. I still see them in my version of Excel. I definitely would have received more emails if this was impacting everyone, so it appears to only hit a few people. I asked about the version of Excel these people have, and that does not seem consistent. Plus, version 1.0 works for them. I only made some formula changes between 1.0 and 2.0.
Has anyone ever seen an issue like this before? Any idea why this might be happening?
The file download is available at the following address (download link on the right):
There are 2 spreadsheets in the download file. The Compiler is the one with the reported problem.
I am trying to do here is select a value from a drop down which is linked to a formula which triggers the macro shape..i have all that down already... but the problem is that I will have multiple values in the same drop down and I needed to figure a way to delete the previous macro shape in that range. And so i have created the delete all shapes code below but it seems whenever I use the code it deletes the data validation drop downs
here is what I have so far...
Function Macro() ' DELETEALLSHAPES ' ' ActiveSheet.Shapes.AddShape(msoShapeRectangle, 220.5, 105.75, 92.25, 51#). _ Select End Function
I have 8 values in a drop-down list that I've created with excel " Validation" function. Each one of these values changes my data in the sheet. I'm trying to set up a macro that will choose each one of these values and print out the sheet when each new value is chosen.
Those lists will be called up based on 7 values in column “D”: “G” “152” “J” “X” “D/E” “V” “R”
So far I have only been able to get this to work for the first category “G”. When I change the value of column “D” from “G” to “152” I no longer get a drop-down. Here is the formula I am using in the List function of validation.
I have a workbook with the twelve months of the year as seperat worksheets. a thirteenth worksheet is a "total" page. I have three different names to choose from a drop down list in collumn E. I need a formula that will say something like, "if JanuaryE4 = John Doe, total page A1= January A1" Is this possible?
is it possible to do the following with a drop down list, without requiring VBA? I would like to have 20 products to choose from in a drop down box. When the user selects one of the products, a more detailed product description will appear in the same cell where the drop down list is. For ex: If the user chose "chair" from the drop down list, what I would like to appear in the same cell is "chair - model T654".
I'm designing a spreadsheet for users to enter the length of journeys that they've claimed on their expenses. In order to ensure consistency between users, I want to add two drop-down boxes or listboxes that will offer a list of common locations (eg. office A, office B, office C, customer A): one for the start point, and one for the finish point. These will be referenced by a lookup table that will automatically fill in the journey distance.
However, users will also need to be able to input other locations themselves (ie. if a journey starts at home, not at the office). If I use data validation to create the drop-down box, it will only allow the values on the list; is there something that functions like validation in offering the user a range of options, but also allows other values?
I have a drop down list that shows phrases for different math functions, like "divide by 2," "divide by 4," divide by 8," etc. When one of these items is selected, I want it to perform that specific calculation on a range of nearby cells.
However, I also want the user to be able to see the original value of the cells if they select "show original value" from the drop down list.
I have attached a workbook as an example. I think macro would probably work best.
We have several salespeople who maintain a workbook tracking their workflow. I want to compile the customer account number, account name and deal number for each rep to another workbook. A new sourcebook is started each week. This code is in the target book
Public sourcebook As Object 'the workflow workbook
Dim wsc As Double 'the number of pages in the workflow
Dim col As Long 'the column in this workbook for returning values
Dim IntEndRow As Double 'the end row in this book
Dim SrcEndRow As Double 'the end row in workflow
Dim findval 'the column workflow where the sourcedata is found
My code allows the user to select a workbook and then loops through each sheet in that book searching for the column which has the info I need, this changes on each sheet as the reps each deal with different types of customer as so take different details. I solved this by having column headers in the target book and searching for them in the sourcebook.
This code works when I step through it but falls over at the "Set sourcebook" line when I run it where it returns a breakpoint error.
I want to make a chart with the time in x axis and all of the S in the y axis. The problem is I want to be able to choose which S that I want to put in the chart. Example, I want to make 2 chart with S2,S3 and S5 in the first chart and S1 and S6 in the second chart. What I want is when I click the button 'chart', a pop-up appear and ask which S that I want to include in the chart.
