Populating Combobox 2 With Items That Match Criteria From Combobox 1

Mar 30, 2009

Am trying to get dynamic population of 2nd combobox based on match from criteria in combobox 1.

if column a = bears and column b = colours of bears then

when I select bears in combobox one, combobox 2 would populate with colors of bear.

I am think of having a combobox 1 change event that evaluates each row in a specific range (does it match the criteria?) if so, then add 2nd cell (column b) of that row to the combobox 2.

I know it would probably involve match and offset, add item and loop, but I am not sure what the syntax is.

Populating Combobox From Value In Another Combobox

Dec 30, 2011

I am trying to populate a combobox (CboMilestones) based on the project number that appears in CboProjNum. I need the values of certain columns to be added to CboMilestones. My spreadsheet is laid out in a paticular order based on a SQL upload that I will have to perform (1st column = project number, 2nd column = milestone 1, 3rd column = must be blank, 4th column = forecasted date, 5th column = actual date, 6th column = Milestone 2, 7th column = blank, 8th = forecasted date, 9th column = actual date....this repeats all the way to milestone 160) I need CboMilestone to populate with all the milestones on the row of selected project number, and then I need TxtADate and TxtFDate to display the dates of the selected milestone for the selected milestone.

Below is a pic of my spreadsheet and a pic of the code i have so far.

ComboBox Not Populating

Jun 1, 2007

I have a combobox that is not populating correctly. The design of it uses an existing list (which changes every month) to populate the contents of the combobox. I want the user to be able to select a location from the list if it is already on the worksheet, rather than having to key in the location name for every single record. This Sub worked just fine and dandy for me until I deployed the workbook to the end user. Then this particular combobox decided not to work.

I have been over this code many, many times and I am almost positive that it's just a matter of my not being able to see the obvious. Perhaps another set of eyes looking at the code will be able to see what I can not.

Sub get_Locations()
Dim allCells As Range, Cell As Range
Dim noDupes As New Collection

' get the first from last row #--the last row is a row of record counts and sums.
endRange = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count - 1

ComboBox1.Clear ' This will clear the combobox.
If endRange 65536 Then ' If the row number is not the end of the worksheet, _
there must be something already on the worksheet, so build the list.
On Error Resume Next
' Get unique values in range by checking each cell in range.
For Each Cell In Range("D12:D" & endRange)
noDupes.Add Cell.Value, CStr(Cell.Value)
Next Cell
On Error GoTo 0

' Sort the collection alphabetically within the combobox
For i = 1 To noDupes.Count - 1
For j = i + 1 To noDupes.Count
If noDupes(i) > noDupes(j) Then
Swap1 = noDupes(i)
Swap2 = noDupes(j)
noDupes.Add Swap1, before:=j
noDupes.Add Swap2, before:=i
noDupes.Remove i + 1
noDupes.Remove j + 1
End If
Next j
Next i

' Add items to combobox in their new alphabetical order.
itemIndex = 0
For Each Item In noDupes
UserForm2.ComboBox1.AddItem Item, itemIndex
itemIndex = itemIndex + 1
Next Item
Else ' otherwise there's no list to populate and the default row is 12
endRange = 12
End If
End Sub

And just for the record, all object references (cell ranges, comboBox, etc.) are valid and correctly named, so I know it's not there. I also recognize that I have overspecified things by using "UserForm2", but I have done that in the hopes of finding the problem. And the code does execute at the proper times, populating "noDupes" correctly. The problem seems to occur near the end, in the block where noDupes is added to ComboBox1.

Populating Combobox

Jul 3, 2006

I have a spreadsheet with loads of different columns on it, I am using a userform to control the spreadsheet. I have one form that allows me to add data to the spreadsheet and another that allows me to search it.

If one of my colums was a list of "counties" what I want to do is to have a combo box that displays all the counties listed so I can pick a specific one and and search it.

This I can do, the problem arises if a new county is added to the spreadsheet it will not be displayed in the combobox because I am using the additem "....." function to populate the box.

Populating Combobox In A Form

Feb 27, 2014

I have two types of lists that has to be populated into comboboxes. First type is in a column with a header - lets say A1:A20. For them I`m using a following script:

For Each cell In ThisWorkbook.Sheets("NACE").Columns(1). _
Resize(Rows.Count - 1).Offset(1). _
UF1.industry.AddItem CStr(cell.Value)
Next cell

With them all is fine until I need to start for example from row 26. (lets say range to populate is T26:T32) Then I`m lost. changing Offset(1) to Offset(26) doesn't work and I`m getting an error. That however can be handled with a workaround - creating another list that starts from the top. So I gave up on solving that. I need to populate a list from a range that is a row - B5:B20

I've adjusted the script to:

For Each cell In ThisWorkbook.Sheets("prod").Rows(5). _
Resize(, Columns.Count - 1).Offset(, 1). _
UF1.PS.AddItem CStr(cell.Value)
Next cell

Because of some strange reason the script doesn`t see the number 1 in cell B5 and unless there are some more numbers in the following cells, it gives the "no cells found error".

Populating A Combobox Manually

Aug 1, 2006

I'm sure there is an extremely simple answer to this question, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

I am adding a combobox to a userform using the controls toolbox. How can I populate the combobox without a macro?

I do not want to add extra code to the UserForm_Initialize() event because this would just add clutter (I have seen numerous examples using .AddItem)

I would like to just change the combobox by hand.

Combobox Not Populating Correctly

Sep 12, 2006

I have a userform with a combo box that is populated from a list in a sheet called Clients. The userform is in the same workbook as the Clients sheet. This workbook called "Client List.xls" and is set to be hidden from view. I've created a menu bar icon that loads the "Client List.xls" workbook, and on open runs the initialize procedure. The problem seems to be caused by the "Clients List.xls" being not the active workbook. Is this the case? Is there a way around it? If I unhide the workbook and make it the active workbook, the code works great.

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Dim rngClients As Range
Dim wsSheet As Worksheet
Set wsSheet = Workbooks("Client List.xls").Sheets("Clients")
With wsSheet
.Range(Selection, "A1").Select
End With
Set rngClients = Selection
With cmbClients
.RowSource = rngClients.Address
.ListIndex = 0
End With

VBA Populating Combobox From Unsorted List?

Jan 26, 2014

I have built a Userform that is for a Liquor Inventory. I would like to scan each bottle's UPC Code and pull it from a range list that is set up in (Combobox "UpcBarCodeBox"). That information is stored on a sheet "Liquor & Wine Inventory" in Column "A" (Unsorted). Column "B" is the name of the liquor which is also the column that everything is sorted in alphabetical order. What I would like to do is populate several textbox's that I have set up so that I can input missing data or data that needs to be updated. The problem is I would LOVE to keep the list sorted by Liquor Names (Column "B") and not by UPC Bar Codes (Column "A"). From my research I have found that Index and Match might be the way to go but I can't seem to get it to work right. Since I am still learning VBA, Some things still escape my grasp.


Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Me.UpcBarCodeBox.List = Worksheets("Liquor & Wine Inventory").Range("A5:A205").Value

Populating Worksheet Column From Combobox

Sep 3, 2009

I have a userform with comboboxes and listboxes etc. The comboboxes have drop down lists which are populated from data in columns from a worksheet.

1.) During the execution of the userform, a value is selected from the combobox, which is place in a column on another worksheet. So far so good. If I select the same value again, nothing shows up in the row below the first selection. If I choose a different value it shows up. I have tried using different properties of the combobox but have not been able to get around this.

2.) I would like, when the excel file is opened that the userform is ready to go, ie enter data. I have tried putting the
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
End Sub

in "ThisWorkbook" module but have had no success with it.

Populating Directory Information Into Combobox?

Jan 24, 2013

I am having an issue with some code that I am using. I am using the code below to pull a list of folders within a specific directory. I run the code two different times, once on initialization and then again when the combobox values change. The code works well when it is run in initialization. However when the combobox is changed I wind up getting all of the folders listed in the combobox twice. I do not understand why this part of the code gets executed twice.

Here is the initialization code

Dim FileList, FilePath As Variant
mypath = "c:"
MyName = Dir(mypath, vbDirectory)

Populating Combobox (ActiveX) Using Variable

Mar 19, 2014

I have 100 combo boxes on an excel sheet, they are divided in three sets (1-25, 26-50, 51-100). Each set has the same value within the set, but is different from the other.

Right now I am able to populate the combo boxes using the following code

ActiveSheet.ComboBox1.AddItem "Value1"
ActiveSheet.ComboBox1.AddItem "Value2"
ActiveSheet.ComboBox1.AddItem "Value3"
^ This is time consuming and error prone. Is there a way I can use a variable to populate the combo boxes?

I have been able to find the following code, but it does not work.

Dim ComboBox As ObjectFor ComboBoxCalc1 = 1 To 25
Set ComboBox = ComboBox(ComboBoxCalc1).Select
ActiveSheet.ComboBox(ComboBoxCalc1).AddItem "Value1"
ActiveSheet.ComboBox(ComboBoxCalc1).AddItem "Value2"
ActiveSheet.ComboBox(ComboBoxCalc1).AddItem "Value3"

Populating Combobox In Userform - How To Filter

Mar 22, 2014

I have a Userform where I use a ComboBox to populate raw A from a worksheet.

I use this form to update new data that relates to the selected item in the ComboBox.

In that user form, when I select an item from the ComboBox, I idetifay it's raw and display the data from columns B,C...to I in text boxes on the Userform.

I then set the "Enable" property of the text boxes that has data to "False" so that field cannot be updated again.

What I do today is if all the fields where updated, a message box will say "All fields are full" and I clear the form.

Now I want to improve my selection by removing items from the ComboBox if all the "needing update" columns are field.

By this I want to filter out the items that where already updated before and only show the ones needing update.

Here is what I have, I need to change the UserForm_Initialize section so it will only show the rows needing update.


Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
'Populate "Cards" Combobox.
Dim rngCards As Range
Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = Worksheets("Rejects")

Populating Combobox Based On Selection Of Another

Dec 25, 2009

I have a problem involving two combo boxes in a user form.

I need to populate different “lists” to combo 2, based on a selection in combo 1.

I browsed through the forum but could not find any solution that made sense to me.

Here are the specifics:
Combo 1 (called Cbo_Act) is populated with a list based on a named range in one of the sheets. The range is named “activity” and holds 2 records (“Income” & “Expense”).

This list is loaded as part of the form initialization.

If the user select “Income”, I need combo 2 (called Cbo_Act_Type) to show a list of various income types (derived from a dynamic named range called “Income_type”) and if the user selects “Expense”, I need the same combo box (Cbo_Act_Type) to show a different list, specifically – a list of various expense types (derived from a dynamic named range called “Expense_type”).

I know that this should be with a Cbo_Act_Change () routine, but for the life of me, I can’t figure out how to do it.

First, I populate the 1st combobox on the userform initialization. I can get the first 2 comboboxes to populate correctly, but I can't seem to get the 3rd combobox to populate correctly.

The 3rd combobox takes the selection from the 2nd combobox and searches column "A" in the worksheet "Chassis Specs" and populates the 3rd combobox with data from column "B", there will be repeat items in column "A", but all those occurances should populate the 3rd combobox with the data from "B".

Alphabetize Combobox Items

Jan 19, 2010

I have a significant number of comboboxes on a multipage userform. Almost all of them are populated dynamically (it takes the user choice from one combobox, looks for that value on the spreadsheet and if it finds it, it takes whats in the next column and adds it to another combobox).

My problem is that all the items in these other comboboxes are not in alphabetical order. I'd like to find some code that will work for all my comboboxes so that I don't have to have the same code over and over again for each field.

I found the code below and that works to alphabetize the dropdown, but I still have to use it over and over again and change it for each fieldname (in red). I tried to use a variant and just make the value the same as each fieldname before it calls the sub and whats in red below was just my variable but that just crashes my excel.

Loop Through Combobox Objects To Add Items?

Mar 27, 2013

method of looping through objects to make changes.

I have 12 comboboxes on a userform which I have set to dropdown list and want to populate during the userform initialization. Each combobox is called "pt*" where * is a number from 1 - 12. I have currently set up my code with 12 lines, one for each combobox to apply the same dropdown list to each of the 12 boxes.

pt1.rowsource = ptsource
(where ptsource contains a range reference on the worksheet)

I'm interested to learn how to improve my code to loop through 1-12 and apply the rowsource to each combobox.

I did search through some past questions but could only come up with a method which seemed to step through every combobox on a worksheet rather than userform and in my case, I have two other comboboxes on the userform which I do not want to add this rowsource to, only the "pt*" named comboboxes.

I am trying to create a user form (in VBA) with a combo box that has each centre name appear only once (despite the fact that in the database each occurs multiple times). When a specific centre is selected, this brings up all the different training types associated with that centre in a separate list box. When that training type is selected, it should bring up all of the experts in that training type (for the specific centre). I should mention that the range is static (though the data is always contiguous) as the database is updated on a going forward basis.
