I've created seven names in my data validation source list on Sheet 3 in the following range of cells, A2-A7. My data drop down validation list is located on Sheet 1, A2 in the same workbook. I would like to trigger a macro based on the name I select in this drop validation drop down list that will fill out an address, telephone number, and email address in the following cells next to my data validation drop down list on Sheet 1: B2, B3, and B4. I want it to be designed so that users will select a name and have that person's corresponding address, telephone number, and email address fill right next to their name on the same sheet.
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..............
Can I have a cell rage.. say A2:E20...and every cell in it has a drop down data validation list, from data inputted into L2:L27 (For examples lets say L2 is A, L3 is B, L4 is C, L5 is D and so on).
if somewhere in the range A2:E20, say B6 I was to select D from the drop down list, I want the remainder of the cells in range A2:E20, to have the drop down list without the value D in it, and so on, so the more cells in the range I fill from the list, the list for empty cells gets smaller and smaller until there are none left.
I have a very detailed spreadsheet with drop down lists. I would like to block other cells if previous cells have certain selections. I have 7 columns of data that get inputted throughout the month. These cells have drop down selections that I have created. Is there any way to create a drop down menu AND another data validation? So If a selection is made, then the next cells will be blocked, using data validation "custom"?
It is basically a simple sheet that lists the price (Column C) of different items (Column B) based on their Category (Column A).
I am trying to have an automated pricing sheet (on different sheet) utilizing data validation and drop down lists.
For example each row should have this, the drop down list in the first columns should list all the Categories available (This part works fine for me and i can take care of the duplicates).
Once that has been selected, i have now the option of selecting using drop down list also (in second column) the items corresponding to the Category selected in first column (Only the items that are part of that specific category should be listed in the drop down list).
Once the item has been selected, the price of that respective item should be listed automatically in the 3rd column.
I have giant excel spreadsheet that I am trying to clean up. I want to make one of the columns (with around 3000 rows and may of them are the same) into a drop down list. However, when I try doing so from the data validation tab, I get duplicates, triplicates, etc. of the same item.
I am in the process of creating a database, and have used 'Data Validation' to create drop down lists in order to obtain information quickly from the database.
I have encountered an issue where if I have a list the resembles the one shown below, the drop down list will show spaces.
This is particularly an issue for myself and my database because there is over 1,000 items in the list, and there are countless empty cells within the list. I have tried sorting the list, BUT because the database is quite large, sorting it will disrupt other functions of the database.
Ideally, I would like the drop down list to show only entries within the list that are not empty so the drop down list is entirely relevant, and more user friendly.
When it huge list of data for drop down list, it is too much time consume. If i type a letter, it will show all those quarry or data which start with that letter. It need not to scrolling huge list.Scrolling is barrier for use of data validation for me . I tried all dependable data validation.
I have a data validation in a cell that works like this : if a control cell has the value "F" it validates the input with some dates in a custom list, if not it does nothing.
The formula looks like this :
=IF(F2="F",datelist,"") It works fine but I also want it to display the drop down list when cell F2 = F, now all i can do is type a value and it checks if it's ok. Can I do this without using vba ? I will send this to other persons and I don't want the macro warning to pop up when they open it.
I want to control what a user enters into a single cell based on others.E.g.
A B 1 20 500 2 50 500 3 75 500 4 100 300
Column A is a thickness and column b is a width what I want to happen if the user enters a thickness in cell D1 and a width in cell D2 I want an error to pop up if for instance the user enters 100 as a thickness to only allow a maximum of 300 in the width. likewise if the user enters a thickness less than 100 in cell D1 to allow him to enter up to 500.
I'm using Microsoft Excel for Mac 2011. I'm creating a drop down box from List within Data Validation. It's only letting my create a list of 17 names. My longest list is 63 names. What do I need to do to create a list that will support that?
I have a table created that uses countifs formulas to pull data. I want the data to change based by client - so I created a drop down list with each client's name, and thought I could add a criteria to the countifs formula based on the client's name in the cell- but I get a value error.
I have the following function in cell (table 2 column C) where I want to find a contact name from my table TMI if 3 criteria are true (client, account, NAM) For each contact I have 1 true combination of client/account/NAM but for each client/account/Nam I can have several contacts.
I'm trying to create a spreadsheet that has a data validation in it. I have a drop down list that has to options to select; Yes and no. Every time I create a new row to add more information I have to go through the process of creating a new data validation for for each cell in this coloumn.
Is there anyway of creating a way that every time I insert a new row, a data validation list box will appear in the coloumn that I want it in?
I would like to be able to make the same thing and select items for my drop down list, that are not blak and follow a specific condition. But I don't know how to include the condition in the array formula.
The condition I need is follow:
I want to have a dropdown list with Items that are not blank, and First N > Last N.
I am trying to do 2 things involving data validation. 1) Count the number of entries in a data validation dropdown list and display a result. 2) Use an If statement to pull the formatting from a cell into another cell.
An example would be if Cell A1="A", then show the drop down list associated with cell or sheet "!ryanB2". Alternatively, I would like to also display the number of entries in the drop down list.
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.
I have a range which will change in size & in content, & I want this to be a Named Range at whatever size it is.
Reason I want to is because I want to make a Validation List with this dynamic range. I also want a Validation list which lists the content of 2 or more dynamic ranges which may or may not be on the same worksheet - is this possible?
i.e. First dynamic range: called "Milestones" at A11 Second dynamic range: called "Activities" at A25 & make a Validation list that will list content of both
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
