Populate Multiple Text Cells Using Corresponding Drop Down List?
Jul 5, 2014
The list is a crew list and I'd like to be able to select the foreman, but I'd like the crew cells to be populated with the information corresponding to that specific foreman. I've named the data range and created the drop down list but i cant figure out why the crew column wont populate with the crew. I am using a different sheet for my data.
I tried VBA but I am hoping I can use Index and Match.
I am attempting to populate a row of several cells on a worksheet using a drop-down list, using data from a seperate worksheet in the same workbook. The worksheet containing the data will be hidden (I do not think that matters in this case). Do I place a VLOOKUP function in the first worksheet cells? see attached sample
As a follow-up question, as time goes by, the data in the source worksheet will be appended with new items (additional rows of data). As each new item is added, will I need to edit the formulas, or is there a way for Excel to dynamically add the new data? This might be stretching my wish list a bit but I thought I'd ask.
I have a rather simple problem (tough for me!). I am setting up a food log. I would like to have one column with common food items that I have in a drop down list. The list would be about 20+ things. The other columns would have relevant nutritional info such as calories, fat, carbs, etc.
The problem is how do I make the values in the other columns change depending on which food item I pick from the drop down list?
For example, if I choose bread from the list, how would I get the columns for carbs and calories to change accordingly.
The IF function would be too hard because I couldn't nest 20+ IF functions in the formula for each cell. Also, the drop down list would change as my diet changes, possibly reaching 50+ things.
Also, I would like to manually enter a serving size that would alter the nutritional values in each column (for example 0.5*Calories or Carbs).
It seems so simple in my head, but I can't figure out how to get it to work.
If I choose 1 thing from a list I want it to then fill in many cells with info.
For example: I have a color list to choose from, once I make my choice cells near it fill in with 1.5lbs yellow, 2lbs blue, 4lbs red,.....or what ever I have established as the "recipe" for my color choice. When I choose a different color from my list these cells each fill in with different values.
im trying to create a spreadsheet for different makes of cars, here is what i want to do.
in cell one i want a drop down list for various makes of cars, in cell 2 i want another drop down list for the different models from that manufacturer (depending on which on I choose in cell one), in cells 3 and 4 I want different information depending on the make an model of the car. I have got 1 sheel with all this info on it but I dont know how to make it all work nice and neatly with drop down lists.
I have been using this formula in my report for a while now and i have just updated the table at which it looks at. The table consists of 3 columns - store, store number & division. The value at what vlookup looks for is the store and i have sorted this alphabetically.
But now when i choose the store from a drop down list i get nothing populated in the cell with the formula!!!
I'm need to add a droplist with periods 1,2,3,4 etc... that references a cell then populates that same reference in a cell raange. Example: cell E1 contains the droplist with periods 1-4 as choices to select from, when you select period 1 it populates the dates jan 15 in cells E4:E7, if you select period 2 it populates dates jan 31, etc. how to add the droplist, how to expand the list, show the formula and how to expand it as I will have more data than this short example.
I have a form with a main list box and several other list boxes. I drag and drop records from the main list box to the others. When I drop a record onto one of the list boxes, a corresponding worksheet is updated with the same record. This works just fine.
The problem I have is:I close and re-open the form after having added some dataDrag/Drop a record to the list boxThe worksheet won't find the first empty rowExample: If the worksheet already contains 4 rows of data, I have to drag/drop 5 times before the fifth row will be updatedI would like to drop the data the first time and have the first blank row updated
1.) I have tried variations of "xlUp", "xlDown", and SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell) in the "Worksheets("Monday")... line of code; all to no avail.
2.) The cells contain formatting (borders)
Here is the relevant code:
'Copy items from the list box to the worksheet For intI = 1 To ListBox2.ListCount For intJ = 1 To ListBox2.ColumnCount If IsEmpty(Worksheets("Monday").Cells(intI + 1, intJ)) Then Worksheets("Monday").Cells(intI + 1, intJ).Value = ListBox2.List(intI - 1, intJ - 1) End If Next intJ Next intI
I'm trying to create a drop down list which returns values based on what has been selected in the previous drop down list in the adjacent cell, e.g. if 'Apples' is selected in the previous cell then you should only be able to select from 'Gala, Granny Smith', or if 'Oranges' is selected you should only be able to select 'Seville, Blood Orange'. Is there a formula which would do this, or can I use a pivot table somehow? I'm totally stumped.
I have 4 sheets: 1 called main 1 called states 1 called counties 1 called people
On "main" I have 1 drop down box and 1 cell:
the drop down lists the states from "states" sheet the cell, which i would like to have as a drop down is supposed to be listing the counties in the state selected from the 1st drop down. right now it is setting the value to TRUE for testing purposes.
then when the county is selected, it will display the people in that county listed in "people". So far I can only get the 1st drop down to list the states. that's the easy part. i need to getting the counties to list in another drop down based on what state is selected.
Im a fairly basic VBA user who has just purchased the code for J-Walk's Enhanced Data Form.
On other threads in this forum I have noticed a lot of people asking how to make the contents of one drop-down box dependant on the selection in another. I am trying to do the same thing but with the criteria section of the EDF form.
Is this possible? What does give me hope is that a simple Autofilter - whilst not as aesthetically pleasing, does the job well.
Currently I have columns fixed or assigned to the names of insurance providers/companies.
In each column below the name of the Insurance Company, a combobox containing the plans that company offers. Choose a plan, and the rest of the column is filled in using vlookup.
Now to save space, IE opposed to having 13-15 columns one assigned to each Insurance Company/Provider. I am looking to have only 3-5 columns with a first initial combobox in which one chooses the Name of the Company/Provider, and in turn populate the original combobox and vlookup functionality I already have built in.
Here is an example of what I am working with. [url]
I need to have a drop down list which displays a different set of values depending upon the value selected by a previous drop down list. ie. (drop down box 1)= x, y, z. (drop down box 2)= either x1, x2, x3, or y1, y2, y3, or z1, z2, z3. I can produce a single drop down box thats not a problem but linking several drop down boxes is beyond me .
I have form with a list box lstEmpName which is populated from a sheet "Records" range a1:a35. This is in the UserForm initilize sub.
When a name is selcted I want the corresponding payroll number (found in Records range B1:b35) to auto popuate the txtPayroll box. I've had a go at some code but it's not working in the Userform Initialise sub and I don't even know if this code would work.
I've managed to create a drop-down list with the following possibilities:
Yes No Others
When the option Others is selected, I would like the user to be able to input additional information in a new line with wrap text formt (this new line should be hidden when either Yes or No is selected).
I'll set up the situation first: I have a group of cells (arranged in a esthetic manner) across several rows of columns. For example, column A1 to N1, rows 1 to 5.
I'm hoping to set up a drop-down list in a cell (we'll use A2 as an example), with different options that will determine what text is displayed in different cells in the group when the user selects it.
For example, if I selected option 2, it would display different text in cell B4 than if I choose option 1. Again for option 3, etc.
If this is at all possible, there is an additional question. Can this format also insert drop-down lists, instead of text, in select cells?
I am using the VLOOKUP function to pull multiple columns of information from another sheet in the same workbook based on a name. The sheet it is pulling from is a query. I am looking up product names, and in the query there may be multiple results that the function can find.
VLOOKUP only returns the first result that is found. What I am trying to do is get it to dump all the results into a drop down list in one cell. If I attach a drop down to one of the columns of information I am retrieving, then I can select which of the entrys to display, right? I think this should work I just don't know how to go about setting it up to do it.
How would I set up a VLOOKUP formula that attaches a drop down list containing all the results that the function finds?
I am trying to auto-populate text in cells in area A, based on data I enter into other cells in area B. I want the area A cells to be for display only, as all editing will be done in area B. The problem is: how do I do this such that the text I write does not get cut off if is longer than the column width? See the attached document for a clear example and description of what I am trying to do...
I am trying to setup a file that has three tabs - LIST, COLOR AND PLANT.
I want to be able to select a color or colors (red, blue, yellow, green) and a plant or plants (tree, shrub, flower, grass) using radio buttons, maybe?
If i chose red and blue for a color and chose tree, shrub and grass for plants, i would like to populate the LIST tab with these items.
I'd also like to give an associated value to each color and plant. for example, for the colors, i could choose values between 1, 2 and 3. if i chose red 1, it would add "red 1" to the LIST. if i wanted to later change it to 3, i could do that on the COLOR tab and the LIST tab would update automatically.
The first part (code#) is a code for an item. The second number is the quantity of that item. What I need to do, is to be able to populate a master list which will pull the quantity of each item and sum them up. In the above case, the master list would look like this:
I have a drop down list with 6 recipes. When I select chocolate for example I want that to automatically populate different cells in the worksheet based on a standard I have created for that recipe. The recipes won't change they just have different ingredients and I want that to show up depending on what I select on the drop down list. I went into VBA and worked a little with this starting code:
If Target.Address = "$F$3" Then Target.Offset(0, 1).Value = "1"
but It wouldn't populate separately based on what I had selected in the drop down it would just populate all 6 recipes the same.
