Shrink Validation List As Selections Are Made?

Feb 19, 2012

I have been working on this data entry and validation tool for work for a while now. I've got most of it down and works just as I want it to. However, I have made some validation lists for people to select and animal ID when entering some data. Once the animal ID is entered I want to remove it from the source data and the list to stop people entering a duplicate number for the same event.

I'm not sure how easy/difficult this will be but the whole reason for this project was to stop people entering the same data and only allow them to enter data that I pre-define. Its to cut down on mistakes where somone will enter the wrong ID and then finding the correct ID becomes difficult due to having over 4000 animals on site.

Changing Chart According To 3 Selections Of Validation Data (list)

Nov 28, 2012

I would like to find out how can I create a chart, where it is interacting with the selection of 3 drop down list (created from data validation-list option). It will show up to 12 months of data.

First list would have only Male & Female, 2nd list would have 1st Class, 2nd Upper, 2nd Lower, 3rd Class and Pass Only, 3rd list would have all the months of 3 years.

My data is from J9:U22. These data needs to be changed accordingly, reading from D45:U58.

For the graph, if I select Male, 2nd Upper, and Jun-2012, I want it to show only this selection, where the period will be from Jul-2011 till Jun-2012.

Previously I have done one, with only 1 selection of drop down list, where I used Vlookup. Now involves 3 criterias.

Or is there an easier way to do it?

Data Validation List - Country Names Are Selections But 2 Digit Codes Need To Be Result

May 7, 2014

I've written a procedure that loads a list of country selections in a dropdown (see attached/vb editor/ThisWorkbook).

The problem is the valid values for this column need to be just the two digit country codes, not the country code +dash+country name. The reason the dropdown selections include both the two digit country code and the country name is because most users will not know the two digit codes. Presenting the selections in this fashion will make t much easier for the user to make the proper selection.

So here is what I need: When the user makes a selection from the dropdown list, the resulting value needs to be the two digit country code only. Is there a way to incorporate this formula .... =MID(B2|1|2) ... in the vba procedure which runs after the user makes a selection? Or, is there another way to accomplish this?

Counting Selections Made With Control Toolbox Controls

Apr 12, 2007

I am attempting to put in some dropdown boxes and text boxes and maybe some other items using the control toolbox in Excel. After a selection is made I would like to count that particular item. I was using the validation method in which all I needed was the following to sum up the selections made: =SUMIF(G:G,"Monday",I:I)

Now I realize this will not work due to the fact the control toolbox controls are embeded and merley sit on the cells. How do I sum selections made using drop down boxes that are derived from the control toolbox? If someone can give me an example to try or point me to a place to find such information that would be great.

Make Chart That Will Constantly Change As Different Selections Made By Person?

Jun 18, 2014

I have created a spreadsheet which uses data validation to allow a user to select a company, start Date, end date, and projected months in order to output different figures. I have attached a spreadsheet to this post in case that was hard to understand.

Since there is data validation, indexing, and matching going on, as different selections are made, various tables change as a result. What I mean as you open the example sheet and start messing around with the data validation boxes.

The problem I am encountering now, is creating a chart that will also keep changing as the user changes their selections in the data validation boxes. I am unsure if this is even possible, but I figured it was worth a shot to ask. On the example sheet, I have included a graph similar to the one I want, but it only contains data in a certain range of cells, rather than dynamically changing to accommodate whatever data is outputted.

Here is what I am looking for in the graph:

1. Whatever dates are selected by the user in the data validation boxes, along with the projected dates will be on the x-axis.

2. The PMPM figures associated with the selected dates, and the projected dates on the y-axis.

3. Ability to make different selections from the data validation boxes and still have a dynamic chart that keeps updating itself.

Formula To Find Value Of Cell Based On Selections Made In Two Other Cells?

Feb 2, 2014

I am making a form with drop down boxes and auto fill to make things easier. I have one Box for the Company selection another box for the occupation selection and I need a formula to find a $ value based on the selections made in these two cells. If I could establish the actual cell reference of the selected data in the second drop down list. The data will be much larger than this example and will live on a separate sheet.

Update Validation Selections

Sep 25, 2006

updating validation selections. I have attached an example of a bigger worksheet I use.

Sheet data: this sheet contains the raw- date. Data will be added and changed continiously.

Sheet pivottable: this sheet is used to sort the drowdown list and filter out double entries. A Dynamic named range is set to the pivottable

Sheet form: in this we will choose a code by a dropdown list and the column data 4 is filled by a vlookup formula.

If the data is changed in the sheet data and weíve refreshed the pivottable, the code on sheet form contains previous data, so the vlookup formula canít find the data (resulting in n#a depending on using a ISERROR formula)

The following solutions Iíve already tried:

- A userform with a lisbox/combobox in combination with listindex and an index formula. The problem is that when I sort the pivottable the index and data do not match.

- I also used the information in this thread but this didnít work.

Maybe I have to change the construction of my worksheet, but it is important that it works.

Multi-Selection List Box Selections

Feb 13, 2008

I created a userform for budgets. Currently the way that the user selects the year for a particular line item is a combobox. The combobox is filled from a textbox, where the user inputs the project duration. For example if the user put five years into the textbox, the combobox would have years 1,2,3,4,5, and a default of all years. I want to change the combobox to a multi-selection List Box. I changed the sub that loads the current combobox to this:

Public Sub ComboLoad(cboExpense As ComboBox, cboJob As ComboBox, _
ltAp As MSForms. ListBox)
Dim i As Integer
ltAp.Clear
If Len(UserForm2.txtYears) = 0 Or Len(UserForm2.txtYears) = "" Then
ltAp.AddItem ("All Years")
Else
For i = 1 To UserForm2.txtYears
ltAp.AddItem i
Next i
ltAp.AddItem ("All Years")
End If
ltAp.Text = "All Years"
'ltAp.value = "All Years"

I used to be able to select a value for the combobox, (the default of all years), but I get an error if I include that part of the code now. I wanted to know how I can make this selection by code. Also, the bigger question for me is how do I deal with multiple selections that may or may not be sequential. As an example, for the travel section, there may be a particular expense that will occur in yrs. 1,3,5. I found some info about referring to the position in the array, but it seems like this will constantly change. I could imagine doing case scenarios, but it seems like there would be too many potential possibilities to cover.

Swap 2 Mouse Click Selections After Resizing Selections

Jul 7, 2013

I am trying to take two random Mouse click selections and swap a set of ranges associated with the cells that are selected. For example if the user clicks on A1 it will resize(3,22) and store the selection as a variable to be swapped with another selection. Here is what I have so far but I keep getting a object required error on rngEmp1.

VB:
Sub SwapGroup()
If Selection.Cells.Count < 8 Then
MsgBox "Please Select two Groups to swap. Press and hold 'Ctrl' in between your selections", , "Swap Groups"

Can One Item Be Made To Stand Out In Dropdown List Combobox On Custom Userform?

Oct 12, 2013

I have a list of employees that can be assigned to tasks, the list is large enough that I cannot remember who is assigned to what.

All the employees assigned major tasks are automatically filtered out but these are employees with administrative tasks that should only be assigned as a last resort. I would like to assign the employees with administrative tasks a gray, italic, strike-out or some other font to indicate that they are different.

I assume this is done during the Add Item process...

Creating SUM In Table Based On 2 Selections From Dropdown List

Aug 19, 2014

I'm creating a new spreadsheet for different fines we have as a football club.

I have a table frozen at the top which looks like this:

Fine 1 Fine 2 Fine 3
Player 1
Player 2
Player 3

Then also I have a list below this with the date and specific fines:

Date Player Fine Amount
(drop down (drop down Entered manually
list of players) list of fines)

I am wanting the amount of the fine to be entered into the table at the top of the spreadsheet automatically based on the 2 drop down list entries. I would also need the table to keep adding the fines together once new entries are made.

Fill Table Using Drop Down List Data Selections

Jul 10, 2009

I have a couple of drop down lists of data created from lists as well as fields next to it.

What I want it to do is take that data, which is name, start time, end time, days worked, queue (or work type), and fill the table next to it which is just a 30 minute by 30 minute schedule sheet with days of week 1 and week 2 on top.

I figure it would be easier to have a GO button to do this.

I will attach an example of what I mean, but please, if you guys find that there is an easier way to do this, just let me know, I feel this might involve some code/macros instead of excel functions

Excel 2007 :: Shrink / Trim Worksheet To Rightmost / Lowest Filled Cell?

Aug 19, 2014

Assume I filled some cells of a worksheet (in Excel 2007).

Now I place the cursor in one of the cells and dragged the cursor to the right side. As a result more and more empty columns are automatically added at the right side even I do not enter something. Similarly rows are added at the bottom when cursor is dragged downwards.

Correspondingly the horizontal (and vertical) slider shrinks because the dimensions of the matrix grows.

Is there a menu/function which let me do the opposite?

Something like a trim/shrink function which cuts/deletes all empty columns beginning from the right side resp. rows from the bottom?

.... but not from the left and topmost side.

Validation List To Depend On Another Validation List

Sep 9, 2006

I'm not sure if its possible to do what I want. I'm trying to do it without VBA as my users might have a high macro security setting.

I have a validation dropdown in A2 where they pick 'yes' or 'no' for FLSA. I would like B2 to be a dropdown (validation, listbox, whatever) that would change based upon A2. If A2 is 'yes' I want to use the data in A5:B7 and if its 'no' use A10:B12. Ultimately I want B2 to equal one of the numbers from A5 - A7 or A10 - A12. However when they click on the drop down they see the combo of column A and columb B as column A has no meaning for the user.

Named List: Data Validation To Restrict The User To Only Selecting Values In A List

Jun 15, 2007

I'm trying to use data validation to restrict the user to only selecting values in a list which I create. Right now, the list is a named range. I'd like to get rid of the range and just use a named list. I create a name using the following as my list.

Insert > Name > Create
Name: Fruit

Refers to:
banana,apple,orange

When I try to use the name Fruit in my data validation, I get the message "The List Source must be a delimited list, or a reference to single row or column." I thought my name "fruit" was a delimited list.

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?

Excel 2007 :: Data Validation List Depend On Another DV List

Apr 29, 2012

I have a List of Different Fruits in Cells A1 to A5

Apple
Banana
Orange
Strawberry
Cherry

And I use data validation list in 5 different cells from Cells C1 to C5 then in every cell the list will show all the fruits,

But I want that if I select Any Fruit in cell C1 that should not be included in the remaining 4 cells, and the fruits selected in Cells C1 and Cell C2 should not be included in the remaining 3 cells and so on....

I Used the formula

=IF(C1=A1,OFFSET(A2,,,COUNTA($A$2:$A$5),1),0)

But this works fine if I select Apple in the Cell C1, then the List of C2 Shows all Fruits other than Apple, But if in Cell C1 I select any fruit other than Apple it does not work... (Using Excel2007 & Win XP)

Validation List Based On Named Range Not Restricted To List

Dec 15, 2007

I am attempting to use a named range as my Validation data source but have two questions:

1) It seems when you use a named range as a source the user can enter in any data they want in that cell. I really only want the user restricted to the list I give them. If I enter the list manually in the source box then it works but I really want to use a named range

2) My range is fixed to 10 cells and the user can enter in as many variables as they want (up to ten). When a user clicks on one of the cells that the validation is set to read the range the user has to always scroll to get to the top. When selecting the cell Ecel always defaults to the bottom choice in the list. I want to minimize the VBA because Mac users will be using this and VBA seems to be touchy with macs.
