IF Formula And Validation List (2007): Kick Over To "N/A"

Oct 22, 2009

In a single cell, I'd like to include an IF statement and validation list reference. The goal: if a cell is a certain value, I'd like all of the following cells in that record (row) to kick over to "N/A". These other cells currently reference a validation list. Otherwise, I'd like the drop-down lists to be available.

My thought was: =IF(a2="Support","N/A",...). For the ... false value placeholder, I was hoping to be able to reference the validation list. The error I'm getting when I try the IF statement in a validation list cell is: "The value you entered is not valid. A user has restricted values that can be entered into this cell."

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 :: 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)

[code].....

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.

Data Validation And List With Formula?

Jun 29, 2014

I am trying to make a simple planning sheet.

I have a workbook with 2 sheets.

1.sheet contains Columns : DayDateTimeClassTeacherCovered

2. sheet contains the availability of teachers. so all columns start with a date and the rows contain the name.

A row therefore looks like this.

7/1
Harley

Lidia
Livia
Thais
Salete
Carla

My issue: The 1.sheet has a column Teacher, now in this column I want to have a drop down list. (E2, E3, E4, E5 ... etc..) This list is depended on the date which is in column B.

Essentially I want the list to look up date in its row go to the second sheet and give me all the possible names in it. That is all.

Kick User Off After Inactivity

Sep 2, 2004

I picked this code up off this board but it isn't quite working. After 5 minutes it activates the message. However, if no option is selected by the user, it just sits there because it is waiting for a user response and doesn't actually save and close the workbook.


Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.OnTime (Now + TimeValue("00:05:00")) - TimeValue("00:00:30"), "Message"
End Sub
Sub Free()
ThisWorkbook.Save
ThisWorkbook.Close
End Sub
Sub Message()

Cuser = Environ("username")
continue = MsgBox("This workbook will save and close in 30 seconds unless you press NO.", vbYesNo, "Hello " & Cuser)
If continue = vbNo Then
Application.OnTime (Now + TimeValue("00:05:00")) - TimeValue("00:00:30"), "Message"
Else
Call Free
End If

End Sub

Selecting Named Range From Dropdown Validation List To Use In Formula?

Jan 18, 2013

Basically on a summary page, on sheet 1 say I have a formula which picks up the unit cost (I have this as an array across 5 years)

What I then want to do is multiply this by a volume driver. I have a list of these drivers on a seperate page, so for convenience lets say DRIVER_01,DRIVER_02 etc. These are also 5 years arrays.

So what I want to do it be able to select which driver I want to use for volume on the summary, from a drop down box I have set up, and then the formula pick up that named range, and not just recognise it as a text cell.

I need the ability to change the driver in the future, hence the drop down box. I can also get the unit array part to work fine, I'm just struggling to get this driver array to work..............

Use Of On Time To Kick Inactive Users

Apr 16, 2014

I use the 'on time' function to kick users out of a shared workbook after 30 minutes of inactivity (i.e. no cells updated). Technically it works, as it does kick out the users.

However the time after which it does so seems to bear no relation to the time I have instructed. Sometimes shorter, sometimes longer! If it is was always longer, I would be happy that there is an error in my code somewhere (i.e. the time value is resetting on an unexpected event that I need to find and alter).

Validation List To Depend On Another Validation List

Sep 9, 2006

I'm not sure if its possible to do what I want. I'm trying to do it without VBA as my users might have a high macro security setting.

I have a validation dropdown in A2 where they pick 'yes' or 'no' for FLSA. I would like B2 to be a dropdown (validation, listbox, whatever) that would change based upon A2. If A2 is 'yes' I want to use the data in A5:B7 and if its 'no' use A10:B12. Ultimately I want B2 to equal one of the numbers from A5 - A7 or A10 - A12. However when they click on the drop down they see the combo of column A and columb B as column A has no meaning for the user.

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.

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.

Excel 2007 :: If Then Else And Validation

Feb 14, 2012

I am failing on the logic and syntax to achieve the following. Basically it has to take the sum of 1, or 2 fields and validate it against the value of a 3rd field. I can get it to work for 1 field if DefPercent = 100 but not when looking at the total of 2 fields if DefPercent < 100.

Fields:

- DefPercent (if = 100 LiabilityAmt2.Enable = False) (this works fine already)
- TotalLiability
- LiabilityAmt1
- LiabilityAmt2

Output Required: logic only

If DefPercent = 100 And TotalLiability LiabilityAmt1 Then
MsgBox "error....."
Exit Sub
Else continue

If DefPercent < 100 And TotalLiability LiabilityAmt1 + LiabilityAmt2 Then
MsgBox "error...."
Exit Sub
Else continue

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.

Excel 2007 :: Data Validation With 24:00 Times?

Jan 29, 2014

I have a spreadsheet which monitors the hours employees work - one of the rules is that an employee must have 12 hours rest between shifts...

I am using the below Data Validation formula in column I to highlight when an employee has less than 12 hours rest and an alert to appear

=OR(AND(I4-B4=0.5),AND(I4-B4>=0,I4-B4>=0.5))

Now this works perfectly with the exception of when an employee finishes at say, 18:00hrs on a Friday, and starts at 22:00hrs on a Saturday - Excel Calculates the Rest hours as 04:00, when it should be 28:00

I've had a suggestion to use the following:

=I4+I2-B4-A2>=0.5

(I2 being the saturday date, A2 being the Friday date) - this does work but only for Cell I4, If I copy the Data Validation down the column all cell references change - is there a way to keep the I2 and A2 in the formula without having to retype in every row?
