Data Validation :: Dependent Lists

Oct 14, 2008

See the attached example. I have created a dependent data validation. The list available in B2 is dependent on the item chosen in Cell A2.

What I would like to know is how do I expand this validation down columns A and B. I don't want to have to add the validation in each cell individually!

Data Validation Dependent Lists?

Dec 31, 2012

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.

Dependent Data Validation Lists

Sep 10, 2009

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.

Data Validation :: Dependent Lists ..

May 26, 2006

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.

Limited To 5 Dependent Validation Lists

Oct 4, 2006

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.

Multiple Dependent Data Validation Lists

Sep 12, 2007

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.

Duplicate - Dependent / Related / Interconnected Data Validation (Dropdown Lists)

Jun 6, 2014

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.

3 Dependent Dropdown Lists / Combined Selection Provides Specific Information

Nov 11, 2013

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".

Filtering Based On Values In 3 Dependent Dropdown Lists

Feb 6, 2014

I have a dynamic dropdown list in B3. The dynamic dropdown list in B4 is a result of my choice in B3, and my dynamic dropdown list B5 is a result of my choice in B4.

When changing a value in B3 the dropdown lists B4 and B5 will be reset. This is done by this VBA Script in my worksheet.

Dependent Dropdown Lists Based On Dynamic Data Range?

Apr 19, 2013

I have data that resembles (I have also attached an example workbook as well if that is easier)

Column A.................Column B................Column C..................Column D.............Column E................Column F
Year.......................Quarter...................Month..................Product-Code...........[data A]................[data B]


I am hoping to have, on another sheet, a series of dependent drop boxes- Year, Quarter, Month, SKU- which after selecting then displays 'dataA' & 'dataB'.

So you could select- List 1: 2013 ----> List 2: Q1 ----> List 3: Jan ----> SD-21.................and then 13% and 0.05% are displayed.

The data will be continuously added to and so needs to be based on a dynamic data range.

I know that a pivot table is the perfect way to do this, however my bosses have requested that I do not use that format so it is easy for all staff to access.

So I think I need to construct some sort of dashboard sheet, I have experimented with OFFSET from other posts, but so far have had no joy.

Excel 2007 :: Multiple Dependent Lists Based On Selection In 1st Column?

Jun 1, 2011

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.

Auto Populate Data Values Based On Dependence Of Two Drop-down Lists?

Feb 1, 2013

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.

Linked Validation Lists & Lookup Based On Choice

Aug 12, 2007

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

Lock/Unlock Cells Based On Criteria From Validation Lists

Apr 24, 2008

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.

Data Validation Dependent On Another Cell Being Completed?

Jan 27, 2014

I've got a password protected spreadsheet with only certain cells unlocked to allow users to complete them. I need the following to work on Excel versions 2003, 2007 & 2010.

Cell E3 has a drop down list with types of car to choose from. One of the car types is "Pool_Car".

Cell D12 should only be used if "Pool_Car" is selected from the drop down list. If any other car type is selected, and the user tries to enter a figure in D12, I need an error message to appear.

E3 & D12 are unlocked cells.

I'm happy for D12 to become locked & only allow it to be unlocked if "pool_car" is selected, but I've looked elsewhere, but can't find VBA or data validation to work.

How To Get Multiple Dropdown Lists To Populate Results In Named Cell

Sep 28, 2012

I was just given a task at the office of creating a in depth excel spreadsheet. Here is what I need:

I have one drop down list that represents the state a person lives in.
I have another drop down list that represents the the type of property it is.

If you select CA in drop down 1 and Multi Family in drop down 2 you get the end result in (specific) cell.

Then if you select AZ in drop down 1 and SFR in drop down 2 you get different end result in named cell.

How can I get items within 2 different drop down list to call up the end result in a 3rd cell?

Dependent Lists

Jun 27, 2005

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?

Dependent Drop Down Lists ...

Jul 6, 2009

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 ....

Dependent Dropdown Lists

Dec 28, 2006

I have been able to use the previous information to create dependent drop down lists but I have been unable to apply the settings to entire columns versus just one cell.

Is there a way to get the dependent lists to correspond to the cell beside it without having to manually type in each cell name?

Creating Lists Dependent On Each Other

Jul 29, 2006

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:


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:


into one cell, then it is very simple, but I do need the seperation between cells due to the description column.

VBA Code For Locking Cell Disabling Dropdown Validation Lists

Mar 28, 2012

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

Lookup Or Dependent Dropdown Lists?

May 20, 2014

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.

Semi-dependent Drop Down Lists

Jul 30, 2009

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.

Coated steel

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:

Coated steel

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.

Creating Dependent Dropdown Lists?

Sep 23, 2011

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.
