I cannot seem to add more dependents using this code. I think it is in the "If / then / else" structure that it is limited to only those three "groups". But I need to be able to add at least one more dependent list to the code.
I am trying to make two dependant lists in Excel. Using data validation lists, is it possible to, for example, select a country from one list, then select a city in that country from another list. For example, if I select France from one list, I only want the list of cities to include French cities, rather than the entire list of cities in the list.
I have an Excel spreadsheet with two lists of data, the first is a list of groups and the second is a list of sub-groups, each group containing a number of sub-groups, each sub-group being unique and belonging to only one group.
Elsewhere on the sheet, I have used Data Validation (using 'list') in 2 columns to provide a drop-down selection in cells which the user must complete. The first column refers to the first list (groups), the second column refers to the second list (sub-groups).
However I would like to make the values which appear in the second drop-down list dependent on the value which has been selected in the first. That is: make the user choose a group in the first column and then make the choice of available sub-groups in column 2 restricted to those sub-groups which belong to the selected group.
Is there any way to make Hack#24 work with more than 5 lists? I followed the information in the book and was able to get 5 secondary cells to have a drop down list that was dependent on the primary cell selection (also from a drop down list). But when I tried to apply this to the next six primary and secondary cells it would not work.
I've looked at the data validation tips and understand how to make a second dropdown dependent on the 1st, but how about a 3rd dependent on the prior 2 selections and so on.
I would like to have dropdowns based on a dataset of 4 columns (Location, Department, WorkGroup, Employee) that frequently gets updated. I would like to have the user select a location then a department then workgroup and employee. I would then fill in a worksheet with other pertinent information. I can get the 1st two dropdowns to work, but haven't found the key to being able to continue to drill down based on the 1st two options.
I have an Excel file with two different visible sheets (dashboards), each with different types of charts, which are pulling from the same data tables on a hidden sheet. I have a data validation drop down list on one of the dashboard sheets, which lists 7 items. Once one of the 7 item is selected, both dashboards update, which is what I want. However, I'd like to be able to have duplicated, related validation drop down lists. So if someone is looking at the first dashboard sheet and they select a new item, when they go to the second dashboard and see that same item, they could on that second dashboard select a new item without having to go back to the first dashboard.
I'd provide an example if I could, but cannot. I've tried searching on the forum for something similar, but most often the topic of dependent data validation is on two different types of drop downs with the second being dependent on the first, whereas I'm looking for two drop downs that are interconnected and can update in sync.
I'm trying to create a database where when 3 dependent drop down list selections are combined, information is displayed.
I've tried VLOOKUP and INDEX/MATCH but to no avail.
Attached is the spreadsheet and what I am trying to accomplish. On the first sheet ("budget form") is a table named "Event Costs - room hire". I have created three drop down lists that interact based on what you select. Some rooms offer different services and so are dependent on the selection.
However, I want the final box to display the price depending on what is selected in the previous 3 lists. The amounts and a table I have created is in the "Product Database" sheet and the table is labelled, "Room Hire Control C".
What I am looking to do is this... (using Excel 2007)
I need to have more dependent lists based on the selection in Column A. (My column B is already set up and works perfectly using INDIRECT)
For example: Column F would be a dependent list of colors based on the sales rep chosen in Column A Column I would be a dependent list of managers based on the sales rep chosen in Column A Column M would be a dependent list of part numbers based on the rep chosen in column A
without using VBA? (If I HAD to - okay, the other person maintaining the sheet would be lost....) I haven't been able to find anything close to what I want to do online - maybe I am just not using the correct terms.
I need to populated a specific range of cells based on a value of any kind in a header cell. Attached is a sample of the end results. Please remember each header cells needs to determine what happens the range of cells below the header cells.
I am trying to create an easy fill spreadsheet for a game. I am looking to have data values auto fill based off of the entry of 2 prior drop down menus.
I would like to have values for "Move", "Str", "Spd", "Skill", "Armor", and "Value" auto populate after the "Race" and "Role" has been selected. Data for these auto fills I have put on Sheet2 while the main file itself is on Sheet1.
If possible I would like to have Value increase by 5 for every level in "Rank" on the sheet.
I'm trying to continue on this post: Populate Cells After Choice From Drop-Down
I'm trying to expand on CNL's idea. What I need to do is create a spreadsheet that autopopulates two blocks based on the dropdown box that preceedes it. I've got it to partially work, but can't figure out the next step. The differnce between my sheet and CNL's sheet is my drop-down is an indirect data validation.
The easiest would be to have my data in one long list, but my goal is to make it easier on the user to find the specific procedure (I'm trying to build a budgeting spreadsheet for a medical office). So in box A15 there is a list of the different service area, which gives a list of choices in C15 based on the choice selected in A15. My goal is to have G15 and G16 list the cost and charge respectively.
M1 - O3 is the data for Radiology Q1 - S4 is the data for Labs U1 - W4 is the data for Office
I am trying to create validation drop down list for a cell, however I want different drop down lists which are depenent upon another cell.
in Cell A1, I want the options "A", "B","C" etc If cell A1 = "A", then drop down validation for cell A2 = 1,2,3,4,5 cell A1 = "B", then drop down in cell A2 now equal 6,7,8,9, 10 cell A1 = "C", then drop down in Cell A2 now equal 11,12,13,14,15
I'm looking for a solution to a problem and from what I've read in the forums so far, this is the place to come. I first want to say that I have tried to solve the problem by using guidance from other similar threads and adapt those answers to my needs, but as my understanding of VBA is non-existent this was somewhat difficult. I don't want to post a repeat question and I hate wasting people's time if unnecessary, but I can't do this on my own.
That being said, here is the problem;
(I have attached a simplified copy of the worksheet I am working on for reference)
I would like to lock a particular cell in my spreadsheet based upon the selections made from two drop down validation lists (Cells “C4” & “D4”)
Essentially, if a correct choice is made in both, then the cell “E4” becomes unlocked for editing. If however, the correct selection is made in one list, but not the other, I need the cell “E4” to remain locked and a message to appear to prompt the user to correct their mistake.
Furthermore, both the validation lists have a whole range of selections that are very similar but have subtle differences;
"Soft Eye by Talurit" "Soft Eye by Splice"
Is it possible to write a VBA code that performs a similar function to the =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("**",))) formula, so that if any choice that contains the word "Soft" is selected from either or both lists then the cell “E4” becomes unlocked, but if the selection does not contain that word then the cell remains locked?
If anyone could provide a code to make this happen, I would be very grateful! But please explain how to do this, as the word “Soft” won’t be the only parameter and I may need to alter the code so I need to understand the principle behind it; For example, on the spreadsheet, if in the ‘Inboard End’ list a ‘Soft Eye’ is selected and on the ‘Outboard End List’ a ‘Soft Eye’ is selected then cell E4 is unlocked for editing. If in the ‘Inboard End’ list a ‘Soft Eye’ is selected and on the ‘Outboard End List’ a ‘Fused and Tapered’ is selected then cell E4 is unlocked for editing, but if in the ‘Inboard End’ list a ‘Soft Eye’ is selected and on the ‘Outboard End List’ a ‘Standard Eye’ is selected then cell E4 remains locked and an error message appears to alert the user that his/her choices are incorrect. If however, "Soft" is not selected in either list then cell E4 remains locked (it has to be selected in at least one of the two lists to allow editing).
This is a work in progress (not all the formulas that will eventually be used have been entered yet, so please excuse the untidiness of it all) and the choices are likely to change based on input from my colleagues, so I need to understand how the VBA works in order to alter it accordingly, but I don’t want to put any more work into this (it’s still in the early stages) if it isn’t possible to achieve these needs.
I've created a dependent list in Excel using Data validation. The first list is independent and the second list depends on the first list. I'm facing one problem in this. After selecting a element in first list and corresponding element in second list, if I want to change the first list again, I can go and change the value. But the value in the second list remains the same. I want the second list to be empty when I' selecting the first list again. How can I do this?
I have been searching on this for a little while now but have not been able to find a solution to my problem. I have been asked to create a series of dependent dropdown lists using excel so that we can use these for inventory imports into a asset system. The catch on this is that nobody here really has any idea on how to make these dependent lists reference each other correctly. The reason for that is because the fields all have spaces in them and I do not know how to get a list name with a space in it or to create the proper translation for it. An example of this would be something like what I have written in below ....
how to do this and I just can't seem to figure it out...I've come close, but something always seems to be incorrect when I try to do it.
So what I have is 5 column sheet (please see the attached file). What I would like to do is have the 1st column (Main Folder) be a drop down list and have the other 4 columns dependent on the 1st.
So for example, if I choose Business Hierarchy then in the Subfolder, Subfolder2 there should be nothing shown and under the Attribute column, there should be:
ALL BUSINESS SEGMENT REGION AREA OPERATING MARKET COMPANY MASTER COMMUNITY COMMUNITY
shown to the user.
Or if I were to pick Unit from the Main Folder, then in Subfolder Unit, Unit Options, Unit Budgets, Dates, etc. should be shown while in Subfolder2 the items for Corresponding to Dates should be shown.
Currently the description box is blank, but will be needed to correspond just with the pertinent main folder selection as well.
Please let me know if you guys have any suggestions, I greatly appreciate. I'm still learning how to do this kind of stuff, so please forgive me again for having trouble with this.
I also understand that if I were to cluster the information in the Attributes column into single cells such as:
ALL BUSINESS SEGMENT REGION AREA OPERATING MARKET COMPANY MASTER COMMUNITY COMMUNITY
into one cell, then it is very simple, but I do need the seperation between cells due to the description column.
I am currently working on spreadsheet which is using a mix of Conditional Formatting, Validation and a bit of VBA code.
The spreadsheet is a log of vacancies and applicants, When "vacancy" is selected in A I have introduced some VBA code to lock down cells S:AT on the same row.
The code is working but the issue is it is stopping you using the drop down validation throughout the sheet, if you click the arrow that appears on the cell nothing happens, However you can still access the dropdown by right clicking and choosing the 'Pick from Drop-Down List' Menu Item.
The validation is set up by ranges from another Worksheet.
The Code I am using is:
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange1(ByVal Target As Range) Dim myrow Dim StarLock, EnLock
I'm trying to simplify a template we use regularly at work. On the front end page, the one that eventually gets turned into a PDF and sent to a customer, I have a selection of drop downs, which I am pretty comfortable with. I also have some other fields that are populated by vlookups, and again, I have no problem there. What I am struggling with is creating a second drop down list that only has options relative to the first drop-down list. From what I gathered by searching on this, I may have to change the format my data is in, note that I have a pretty basic knowledge of excel.
Master Data (from where I want all the drop downs to come from) - see attached screenshot.
So, on front end, I have a drop down that selects from column A. Beneath that there are two rows that auto-populate depending on what company was selected in the drop-down. What I want is a second drop down list from D, E & F.
So, If I select ABC Limited in the drop down menu, the second drop down should only have John, Jim & Jane as options.
Is it possible to do this with the data in the format I have, or would I need to change the format? I have +/- 500 entries to do, so obviously I'd like to not change my format if possible.
I have been having alot of trouble and have read alot. I can't seem to figure out the problem. I am currently working on an excel sheet that will select a name from the first drop down list. Based on that name five other list will be generated just on the first selection.
I'm trying to make a number of cells dependent to a drop down list. However, these cells would also be drop down lists and while they'd show a value automatically determined depending on the drop down list, the user would still be able to choose another value.
Aluminium Coated steel SS304 SS316
This would be my initial drop down list.
In the same sheet, I could choose the materials for the machines shaft, fasteners, anchors, chains, sprockets, nozzles, etc. These materials would be, again:
Aluminium Coated steel SS304 SS316
in 90% of the cases, having the machines frame at SS304 would mean the rest of the materials would also be SS304. However, depending on the needs, the anchors could be SS316. So basically I'd like that the options all be in the same material as the frame, but with the possibility of choosing another material through a drop down list.
I am trying to get a listbox I created in from DataValidation to be dependent on another list.
For example, when I select Course 1 (a list item) from the Course List drop-down, I want the cost to auotmatically populate in the Cost drop-down (the other list).
How do I get this to happen? Here is the code I created in VB, and I am not sure if this is the right course of action:
Sub Automated() Sheet1.Cells(2, 1) = "MATLAB" If (Sheet1.Cells(2, 1) = "MATLAB") Then Sheet1.Cells(2, 3) = "31" End If Sheet1.Cells(2, 1) = "INCA" If (Sheet1.Cells(2, 1) = "INCA") Then Sheet1.Cells(2, 3) = "41" End If
I don't want to use the user form, however from VB. I want to use the regular drop-down. The code seems to work, but, each list item in the drop-down is not pulling the data I want it to. I need to activate the drop-down as a click event somehow. It's just recognizing the cell A2 as a whole and not the individual list items. I want to each list item to be their own object, and to automatically populate the cell C2 with their cost when they are selected.
