Excel 2007 :: Restrict Cell Input Based On Another Cell Value

Jan 22, 2013

I am working in both 2003 and 2007 Excel.

This is a simplified version of my worksheet:

I have two cells, A2 and B2. When I enter a numeric value into B2, I want it only allowed when certain text values are in A2. I.E.: Allow any value in B2, but only if A1 is either "SYDN or "ADEL".

Now using info found in an old post, I can achieve this with a combination of data validation and code:
=OR(A2="SYDN",A2="ADEL") for the validation and for the code:

[Code] ......

The only problem is I also need to reset B2 if A2 changes to invalid data as a result of some other input to that cell (A2). In other words if B2 is showing "1" already and A2 were to change from "SYDN" to say "LOND", then B2 needs to be cleared. If A2 changed to "ADEL" then it doesn't need to clear but it is ok if it does because it is fine to re-enter "1" into B2 again.

I have attempted to attach a sample worksheet : Xl0000003.xls‎

Restrict Cell Input Based On Another Cell Value

Jul 27, 2009

I've written a spreadsheet and am wondering if there is a way to permit data entry in a cell, contingent upon another cell being populated.

In simple terms, you can't enter data in cell X, until cell "Y" has been populated with something.

Restrict Input Of Zero

Jun 19, 2012

I'm trying to write a macro that will not allow a number to be zero. I have a macro that references a cell that if it is input to zero will create a loop that goes on forever. The thing is this cell will never have to be zero, so is there a way that I can write a macro that if this cell is zero, it gets reset to its previous value?

Clear Data Depending On User Input And Move Cells Forward Without Deleting Data Table

Oct 25, 2012

I have an month input in cells B2 (user can enter values from 1-5)

I then have a data table that has month 1,2,3,4,5 running across range G9:K9. the data is held in range G10:K19.

So if user types in 4 in B2, what should happen is that months 1,2,3 and 4 the data for these months should be cleared and data in month 5 moves forward into month 1.

So basically, anything left of the month entered is B2 should be cleared and replaced with anything right of the month in B2.

1
2
3
4
5

£11
£133
£29
£193

Restrict Cells Text To X Characters Based On Corresponding Cell

Apr 14, 2009

I'm am trying to restrict the length of data that can be entered into a cell based on a drop down in that row. I have achieved this, but what I need to be able to do is use data validation to restrict the cell length to one of two values - so for example the length can only be 6 OR 9 characters long.

I cant see how to do this. At present the best I can do is rectrict to between 6 and 9 - but this would allow 7 and 8 which is not allowed.

Insert Formula Depending On Cells Depending Of Variables?

Jan 27, 2014

In a macro I want to automatically insert a formula in several cells. The formula depends on other cells, and I want to be able to manipulate these cells with variables. Here is my code:

[Code] .....

All my variables are declared:

Sheets("DATOS YTD 2014").Cells(I, Semana + 1) is the cell I want to be able to chose due to the variables
Sheets("DATOS YTD 2014").Cells(I, 3) is the reference cell for the VLOOKUP formula, that will vary with I
SheetMonth.Range("B3:W172") is a range in the sheet SheetMonth which is fixed

The error message I receive is the following: "Run-time error 13, Type mismatch"

I precise that the next step is to make the ",6," part in the vlookup formula also variable... but I guess once my current issue is solved this one will be a piece of cake.

Generate Table On Another Sheet Depending On Input Data?

Apr 15, 2014

I am tracking business hours of various business locations. I would like to be able to enter the businesses operating hours on the "overview sheet" and, based on those hours, have a table generated on another sheet that "autofills" based on the date entered on the "overview sheet". For example:

I would enter the operating hours of the business on the "overview sheet" and it would look something like this:

Day
Open
Close

[Code]....

I want a table for each day created. I would then manually enter the data for the "Ranking" column. The issue is that I have numerous location I want to do this for and all with varying hours of operation. It is very tedious to manually create the tables.

'shift Cells Right' Depending On Value Of Cell

Jan 4, 2010

I need a macro that will "examine" the text of column B for every row checking to see if the text "Proper Text" is in the cell and if not, execute this code for that cell and then move on to perfrom the same until it finds an empty cell:

Selection.Insert Shift:=xlToRight
Range("B2085").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Click for detail image"
With ActiveCell.Characters(Start:=1, Length:=22).Font
.Name = "Arial"
.FontStyle = "Regular"
.Size = 10
.Strikethrough = False
.Superscript = False
.Subscript = False
.OutlineFont = False
.Shadow = False
.Underline = xlUnderlineStyleNone
.ColorIndex = xlAutomatic

Note that "B2085" above is the cell number that the script stops on to execute this code.

Highlighting Cells Depending On A Value In Another Cell

Aug 19, 2006

Have a spreadsheet shows 4000 warehouse locations (location of products). Each cell is a location in the warehouse (ba050, ca809, etc, actual warehouse locations, not grid ref); some products have more than one location, the locations are always next to each other. I import a text file into the workbook which tells me which product has more than one location (2, 10, 50, etc), thats all Im interested in ( multiple locations).

What Ive done so far is to use vlookup to look at locations in file and allocated the number (the number of locations that product has) next (next column) to the cell that correspond to that location. What I need is a macro or formula that will look at the number and than highlight that many cells up or down the column, according to the number in the cell to the right (5 in cell, highlight 5 cells, 50 highlights 50). The warehouse runs up one aisle and then down the next and so on. So I need to be able to highlight cells up one column and then down the next and then up, then down and so on.

Multiple locations change on a daily bases, so need a quick way of updating 4000 locations.

New to excel dont know if this is possible or not. Learning as I go.
Need some assistance.

Sample below.
Only interested if a number is returned, ****** can be ignored as will hide all columns expect ones with locations. So:

BA020 returned value of 4, so would like to highlight (any colour) BA020, BA029, BA040, BA049.

BB780 returned value of 2, so would like to highlight BB780, BB789.

POSSIBLE?

BA090 2 BA100 **** BB749 **** BB739 ****

BA079 **** BA089 **** BB760 **** BB750 ****

BA070 **** BA080 **** BB769 **** BB759 ****

BA059 **** BA069 **** BB780 2 BB770 ****

BA050 **** BA060 4 BB789 **** BB779 ****

BA039 **** BA049 **** BB800 **** BB790 ****

BA030 4 BA040 **** BB809 **** BB799 ****

BA019 **** BA029 **** BB820 **** BB810 ****

BA010 **** BA020 4 BB829 **** BB819 ****
