Pick From List Or Combo Box And Return Definition In Cell To The Right..
Jan 18, 2009
In my attachment, I have a worksheet where I need to pick a rating from a combo box or list (Expert, Leading, Applying, Learning, Under Performing). I will be picking this rating 10 different times on this worksheet and the selections will not be the same in all cases so the definition I need won't always be the same.
I would like to return the definition (definitions are detailed on another worksheet, Data Elements) to the cell to the right.
I've tried IF statements but when I make one selection from the combo box, all the combo boxes select the same thing. I've also tried vlookup but can't figure it out and can't find an explanation in layman's terms.
How can I add multiple cells (ranges) to a listbox, and when the user clicks one, it will activate that cell in excell. I thought about have the list box for the text, and a corresponding array that holds the actual range or address, but I cant get it working.
Long version: I have a search feature that, when you type a name, it searches through a column and finds the name. Now if there are multiple matches to your string, I want it to add the full name to a listbox, and have the user pick one from the list to activate.
So basically, if I search for the name "john" but theres multiple people with that name ("john doe", "john smith", & "john mazz"), it would add the three to a list box, I would pick one from the list, and it would activate that cell.
I have everything done except that last part. I have it adding multiple matches to the list box, but I cant figure out an easy way to activate the correct cell when double clicking the item in the list. I could have it search again for the selected full name, but there is likely to be a case where one person is entered twice.
I need a list in my form, simple "Name/Number" list (only two options) but i don't want it to refer to any cell in the worksheet. I want to input a text in a textbox and with the selection in the list above i want to have multiple choices at how to approach the text (if i input a name i want it to be different than if i input a number). All the info i came up on the web refers to lists made upon a range of cells. How can i make a list without involving ranges of cells?
I am managing a group of sales reps and when they sell a product they receive commissions I am trying to develop something in excel that in cell B5 there will be a drop down that they can choose one of three products (call them A,B,C) then in C5 another drop down will be there w/ two options (new, refurb), then the result will be in D5 depending on the selections. The parameters would be:
Product A new = $10 B new = $20 C new = $30 A refurb = $5 b refurb = $15 C refurb = $25
So if the rep dropped down in cell B5 Product B then dropped down in cell C5 Refurb, the result would appear in D5 and would equal $15.
My organization whats to provide other a excell spreadsheet ( see sample attached) with pick list for certain cells. We have successfull completed adding the pick list. HOWEVER, at times we would like the end user to be able to pick multiple choices form the the pick list
In the example - in column c the user can pick from the drop down list A B V or W
However we want the end user to be able to select any combination, single choice, multiple choice ect
In this example with the above pick list created
How can the end use pick A and W or A, V and W etc
Have column A which is list of names and column E which shows how much each name owes. I want to compile a list of names and amounts owed for the 15 biggest debts (ie. 15 lowest numbers as they are negative values).
Is it possible on Excel to make a drop down menu which picks records out of a list?
I've a big spreadsheet. Thousands of records. About 100 responsible are listed responsible for them. I've highlighted stuff for them to fix, I'll be emailing it out to them, and they'll need to isolate the dozens of records they are each responsible for.
They are, erm, technologically challenged. I want to keep it simple, put one menu on the screen and say
'Pick your name from the list.'
George W picks himself, and then it lists his records but not anybody else's.
Can Excel do that? (Rather, probably, but where do I start?)
I am trying to create a quiz for myself for studying a foreign language. and I am trying to create a command button, so that when clicked, it will randomly pick from a list of names (located in another sheet) and place the name in a desired cell.
I have a worksheet in which Col. A contains the names of London boroughs and col. B contains the name of each Ward in that borough. I'd like to create a list (or combo) box showing all the London boroughs, and a second list (or combo) box which will show all the Wards for the Borough selected in the London list (combo) box. I'd also like the option to be able to select all the Wards for the borough selected so that they can be used in a chartgraph.
Basically i have a data compilation of the sales for each sales agent for each month. I'm trying to create a simple, controlled table where the user can just choose which Employee(List Box) and the Month(List Box) and it will display their TOTAL Sales, the catch is TOTAL sales will be the sum of sales from previous months up till the chosen month.
How do I go about inputting the function in the TOTAL cell?
I would like my combo box list to change base on the value of A1. That is, I have its input range being B1:F1 - "Year 1", " Year 2" etc.
Example: -If cell A1 is the value "10" then the combo box default list item would be "Year 1" (which is cell "B1") -If cell A1 is the value "20" then the combo box default list item would be "Year 2" (which is cell "C1") ETC...
I have a list of combo boxes embedded on a worksheet and I would like to have them accessible through an array. I am an old VB 5 coder and this was a method I used very often and found it to be quite the time saver, but I cannot find a way to do this in excel.
I use ComboBox to add items to the ListBox in userform
I am tring to loop through the ListBox to check each name in the ListBox, so ifthe name chosen by the ComboBox exists in the ListBox then donot add it, but both codes do check the number of the item in the ListBox.
I need to check the name of the item?
With ListBox1 For i = 1 To ListBox1.Value If i = ComboBox1.Value Then MsgBox "u cannot add this item" Exit Sub Next i
For i = LBound(ListBox1.List) To UBound(ListBox1.List) If i = ComboBox1.Value Then MsgBox " u cannot add this item" Exit Sub Next i
.AddItem tot.Value .List(.ListCount - 1, 1) = ComboBox1.Value End With
In the first vlookup it picks up a value. I need to do the same vlookup function but it should also pick up another value in column 9 and should add value in column 7 and 9 and return it. Employee id numbers are in column E in the first page.My formula checks for the employee id in Su sheet and retrieves the value from the seventh column. I need to retrieve also from 9 th column and add them together.
I need to define a specific calendar quarter and year, and want to do so using a combo box for the quarter (e.g. 1st Quarter, 2nd Quarter, 3rd Quarter, 4th Quarter) and a list box for the year (so the user can select any year desired).
The selections in each item should then somehow define the quarter's date range so I can use it in my SUMPRODUCT calculations.
User selects '1st Quarter' from the Combo Box User selects '2004' from the List Box
CurrentQuarter range is somehow defined to equal 1/1/04 through 3/31/04.
If this isn't possible, then perhaps two ranges can be defined based on the user's selections:
QtrStart is set to 1/1/04 QtrEnd is set to 3/31/04
I have a combo box, from the control toolbar, that I have populated with a named range in the properties of the combo box. The items in the named range vary when an earlier combo box is selected. There are always at least 2 values populated in the named range, but can be as many as 22 values. What happens is when there are only 2 items in that range, the drop down list from the combo box shows 20 blank lines! I have been searching for how to "ignore empty cells" in this range, but cannot find it. The empty cells are always before and/or after the populated cells, if that helps. The range is updated via VBA, not formulas, if that is helpful as well.
I trying to do a sheet with one combo box (dropdown list) where I want the user to be able to choose "add rows" to make more boxes appear. My idea to solve this was to put all the boxes in the sheet, and then create a macro that either hides or shows the rows with the extra boxes. Now I have a problem that hiding the rows just does that, and only that. The rows disappear, but the combo boxes stay visible (but ends up on top of eachother).
I have been trying to make a combobox for which the list is a named range. However, this range needs to be transposed. ListFillRange doesn't seem to let me transpose the list first. I've tried transposing the list somewhere else first and then adding it, but it seems to want a range as opposed to a reference to a range. I'm so confused now. This is the basic code that I wish would work.
While I'm at it, could someone explain to be how to refer to a combobox. ie. when you create it, you don't name it so how can you refer to it. That's why I have used the selection tool above to add the list.
I want to create a form and use VBA to make a combo box list all the sheets in a book. Is it possible to select multiple entries like in HTML? I would like the user to be able to select the sheets they do not want to delete before a macro runs.
I'm creating a sheet that takes three Validation Lists into account. The first two lists are based on named regions. The third list uses the first two lists to narrow a search down so that the user can pick what they want from a smaller selection. I'm using the code from Contextures.com to allow the user to double click the validation list to pop up a Combo Box. This allows me to show more than 8 selections at a time and also gives a little freedom on font and font size.
Since the third list is not based on a named region but rather code to compare the two previous lists, when I double click the third validation list a blank combo box pops up. it possible to pop up what ever lists are in the validation boxes.
This is the code that I have in the third validation box which States "The Source Currently evaluates to an error" but works fine for some reason. =OFFSET(CategoryStart, MATCH(B4, CategoryColumn, 0) - 1, IF(A4 = "Description", 2, IF(A4 = "ExtDescription", 3, IF(A4 = "PartNumber",4))), COUNTIF(CategoryColumn,B4), 1)
I tried making a named region that was based on the code, so that the list could change as the user selected different options from the first two lists. This gave me the same problems as I had before.
is it possible to have a cell return all matches from a list and have the list of matches reduce as you type, then be able to select one item from the list? this is a typical feature on internet sites, but can it be done in Excel?
