Created Validation Drop-down List - Can I Make The Row Now Change To The Colour That Relates To The Selection From The List

Jan 13, 2009

I am trying to create a fairly simple spreadsheet with about 8 columns and about 400 rows. One of the columns features a drop-down list with about 8 or 9 different options. Dependant on which option is selected, i would like the entire row to change colour with that option.

For example:
FAILED - whole row changes red
SUCCESSFUL - row has no fill
Tested - row changes to orange

etc.

Is this possible within Excel 2003?

Using Drop Down List As Selection Criteria For The Next Cell

May 31, 2008

One worksheet will have a library of job elements for assembly process with standard times on it.For example:Pick up a bolt(0.621m),install gasket(0.231m) etc.
The main worksheet will have a dropdown list which will list all the job elements discussed above.It will also have the quantity.So in otherwords,to pick up one bolt the time would be 0.621 minutes.But if anyone picks up 4 bolts the time would be 2.115 minutes,which can be calculated by the formula.So I want to display the job element,qty and the time in three separate rows.This worksheet will also calculate the total time for the assembly of the components which might contain more than thousand job elements.
My question is how do I ensure that picking up any of these job elements will give me the correct time.Is this something that can be done by formulas or anything thats built in excel or I need to run a macro or VBA to run some codes for IF...ELSE....THEN statements.There are too many conditions like If pick up one bolt time is 0.621 minutes,if pick up 4 bolts time is 2.115 minutes or if pick up a gasket time is 0.231 minutes.

Show List Depending On Drop Down Selection

Dec 18, 2006

Im currently creating a spreadsheet for my work, with common problems and solutions to one of our websites.

When the spreadsheet is opened, the user will click a button depending on what sort of problem he/she is having. In the example attached, if the user clicks on "make payments" a form will appear. This will have a list of problems.

if the user choses problem 1 from the drop down list, then I would like the list of solutions to problem 1(from the MPData sheet) to show in the box below. The same goes for problem 2, problem 3 etc.

Updating Cells Based On Drop Down List Selection

Jun 8, 2007

I have created a pricing sensitivity for a list of products. In cell C3, users can select a product (i.e. Apple, Elmo, or Bowl) and based on this selection, a range of Prices and Units are then updated and the Revenue for each price point calculated. A few lines beneath this, I have a little summary table that lists all the products. I'd like for users to be able to enter in the optimal price point for each item and then have the Units and Revenue for that selected price point for that specific product automatically update.

For example, if I select Apple from my drop down list my price choices are $5, $10, $15; units are 100, 85, 70; and revenue are $500, $850, and $1,050 respectively. On the summary table, I would like units 85, revenue $850 to update automatically if I select/input a $10 price. This would happen for all the products so at the end I want to be able to calculate a blended revenue mix given my pricing changes.

Return Value Based On Selection Chosen From Drop-down List In Cell Next To It

Jul 2, 2014

I need VBA code to do the following:

When cell H2 = "Weekly", I need cell I2 to return "50".
When cell H2 = "Bi-weekly", I need cell I2 to return "25".

The value in Column I should change as soon as the value in Column H changes.

NOTE: The value in Column H is chosen from a Data Validation List.

I'm assuming offset is the best option?

Auto Fill Cells Depending On Drop Down List Selection

Sep 22, 2008

I am trying to make a calendar spreadsheet to enable me to track allowance payments i am due from my company.

This payment is worked out by three conditions - where i am working (7 regions), how many days of the week (4,5,6 or7) and how many hours (<7,8-9 or 10-12)

I have made drop down lists to select each of the values for the three conditions and want to show the total for them

i can total the entire spreadheet for the month up using fairly large "COUNTIF" statements, but i want to be able to show what the exact amount is in each cell not just a complete total.

i.e. i am away for 6 days i get 15 extra, if i am in Europe i get another 50 and if i work 12 hours i get 30.

I want to be able to calculate this total in each cell for that day.

I can send a copy of the spreadsheet i have got at the moment if that will make things clearer than what i have tried to explain.

Automatically Update A Selection In A Drop Down List From A Cell Value Change

Jul 31, 2008

I have two worksheets...

Sheet 1
A1: description
A2: Target Iteration
A3: Concat A1, A2.

Sheet 2.
A1: Drop down datavalidation list selected from A3, sheet 1.

On sheet 2, a user can select from the list. If a user changes the value in A2, sheet 1, I want the value that is associated and already selected in A1, sheet 2 to automatically update. There is a 1 to many relationship with the concat and the drop down. In that, sheet 2 can have multiple rows with the same value from sheet 1 A3. Is there a way when A3 sheet 1 changes, to search in A:A in sheet two and update the values for those records that match the original value in A3, sheet 1?

Return Cell On Separate Sheet Based On Selection From Drop Down List?

Mar 18, 2014

I am trying to create individualized worksheets based off a master worksheet. I have different committee names that I want to appear on the individualized sheets, based on whether the person is apart of that committee or not. On my master sheet, I choose the persons name under the committee and I want that committee name to show on the individualized sheet. For example, I want A1 on Master to show on Name 1, B3 and A10 on Master to show on Name 1, C3. Can I write a formula to achieve this or or am I asking too much? In my actual file, I will have about 10 names and 5 committees with one person being on up to all 5 of the committees.

Updating Cells Based On Selection From Drop Down List Data Validation

Dec 13, 2009

I'm using Excel 2007. I would like to seek some advise on how i may update cells after selecting a month from a drop down list.

i have created a simplified version of what i intend to have. One the 1st tab 'Cash Budget 2009', i have filled up a table with numbers, sorted by months. On the 2nd tab 'Dec09', i would like to create an expense table, to be able to be selected by month. So i have created a drop down list based on the months that are created in the 1st tab.

Upon selection of the month from the drop down list, i would like the cells to display (fetch) the data from the 1st worksheet. It would also be helpful if the name of the 2nd tab can be updated to read as the month that is being selected.

Drop Down List Which Returns Values Based On What Has Been Selected In The Previous Drop Down List In The Adjacent Cell

Mar 19, 2009

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.

Cant Pull Data From Another Sheet After Drop Down List Selection From Another Sheet

Jul 31, 2009

I have an excel workbook with two sheets. Sheet 1 has a list of people names, rank, address, and phone numbers. Sheet 2 has boxes where a user can select a last name from all last names in sheet1. What I want to happen after the user selects the last name in sheet 2 is for it to automatically fill in the rest of the data (ie Rank, First Name, Address, city, Home phone number, Cell Phone number). What do I need to do in order for this to work?. Attached is a very small example of my much larger project.

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 .

Populate Drop-Down Based On Another Drop-Down Selection ...

Dec 5, 2007

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.

Populate Drop-Down Based On Another Drop-Down Selection

Aug 7, 2008

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.

Restrict Drop-Down Selection Based On Selection From Another

Jul 20, 2007

I want to have a drop down list in a cell so that the value in the cell can be only selected from two columns of data. Additionally once the data from the first column has been selected I want to be able to limit the inputs the user can select from in the second column.

e.g. In cell C115 I want to have the value BDS05.

I want to be able to select the value BDS from a drop down list of values and once that value has been selected I want to be able select 05 from a list of values from 01 to 14
If I select BCS as the first value then I want the second set of values to be limited to 01 to 02 etc.

I have read about combo boxes and list boxes and I'm a bit confused about the best way to achieve this (or even if I can).

Returning A Value From Two Drop Down Lists?

Apr 20, 2009

I try and simplify a list of flights and their respective distances, so its easy for users to enter new flights into a database. Its not too much complication, but needs a formula i'm not sure which one though, either a pivot table or use of an OFFSET formula? Anyway a description of the attachment:

entries for all offices: title headers are self explanatory, with a drop down list at cell C42, referring to Destinations!G4:G88 (a range called airportlist)
cell D42 referrs also to the same range, airportlist. numbers of flghts: totals of how many flights are booked per office, i've got this one sorted. total flight distances: self explanatory.

destinations: a list of every flght the company takes, for each route of travel. also i've researched out the distance each journey covers. i've then compiled a list of each airport used, so i can make the drop down lists which are then used on the "entries to all offices" sheet. (this is the airportlist range).

on the "entries to all offices" sheet, i've made the sample drop down lists on cells C42 and D42, and what i'm hoping is that cell E42 displays the distance between the two cities displayed in C42 and D42.

so my magical formula needs to take the value in cell C42, then on sheet "destinations" needs to pair it to a row matching the value in cell D42, then take the resultant distance in that row and dump it in cell E42.

Populate Drop Down Based On Selection Of Another

Feb 7, 2009

I have a dashboard that uses three pivots based off of a single data source. Each of the pivots is designed to work off of their own drop down list.

the first drop down list allows the user to select a lease date. The associated pivot will update with all servers assocated with that lease date.

the second drop down list allows the user to select a server. This list is limited by the lease date selected in the first drop down. The associated pivot will update with the partition information for the server selected in the drop down.

the third drop down list allows the user to select a partition. This list is limited by the server selected in the second drop down. The associated pivot will update with the detailed partition data for the partition selected in the drop down.

All of the above works, the issue is that when a new lease date is selected in the first drop down list, the current entries for the second and third drop down list are still reflecting the old lease date information. When you click the drop down the correct data is there, it is just not automatically populated.

Is there a way that when the user selects a new lease date in drop down one, the first server in the new list is automatically populated in the second drop down as well as the first partition in the third drop down?

Change Row Color Based On Drop Down Selection?

How do I change the color of a row, based on the users selection from a drop down box in that row? I have four driving types in my drop down , Towing - Town Driving - All highway - Mixed. I would like each driving type, if selected, to change the color of the entire Row of Data to a different color. I have been able to use conditional formating to change the drop down cell itself, but that is it.

Data Validation: Restrict Drop-down Selection

Sep 4, 2009

I have two fields that do the same thing [preset selection vs custom entry], and I need to restrict one from holding any data if the other already does. One field is a drop-down menu, and the other is a decimal entry. It was easy to restrict the decimal from being entered if a drop-down selection has already been made - Data Validation prevents any entry unless the drop-down cell is blank. It's not so easy to restrict the drop-down, however, as it already uses List-type Data Validation to allow only values from a specified range.

Does anyone have any ideas for allowing the drop-down to function as normal if a specific other field or range is blank, but not allowing a selection to be made if that specific field or range already has data in it? I've attached a simplified example worksheet.
