Single Cell Value From Either Dropdown List Or Enter Manually Depending On Selection

Jun 22, 2014

I have a cell in my spreadsheet that I use to control the size of a column. I formatted the cell as a number and added data validation to make sure the number is greater than zero. Then I realized that I need to also allow for the option of auto sizing the column as well. This would require a data validation list type with something like True and False for the choices.

What I want to be able to do is have it both ways. I want a drop down list in that cell with the options Auto Size or Custom. If Auto Size is selected the cell value gets set to that. If Custom is selected I then want to be able to type in a number.

Is there a way to setup a cell such that the value is either an item from the drop down list or, entered directly (depending on the list selection)?

I know I can do it with dependent lists but that would require two cells, one for the auto size mode (true/false) and the other for manual width value.

Use Or Not Use Dropdown List Depending On Another Cell Value?

Aug 18, 2014

I would like to use or not use a dropdown list in data validation depending on the value of another cell. The application is to be able to choose a state from the dropdown list only if the country selected in another cell is "US". If the country is not US then I want the user to be able to fill in free text and there be no dropdown list. I know it's possible to have a dropdown list and allow entries without it being on the list but I need the dropdown list not to appear at all if the value is not US.

Applying Certain Formulas Depending On Dropdown Selection

Dec 6, 2013

Any way to apply a formula to a cell depending on what choice is made from a drop down box in a cell that it refers to.

Hypothetically:

I have a drop down box in A1 with 2 options: Cookie Making Costs - or - Cake Making Costs
In cells A3 through A10, I have cells with the costs for all the ingredients (and B3 through B10 for cake ingredients).
If I select Cookie Making Costs, I would like B1 to apply a formula that sums up all the costs associated with making cookies "=sum(A3:A10)"
If I select Cake Making Costs, I would like B1 to apply the sum of the cake ingredients "=sum(B3:B10)"

3 Different Tables - VLookup Depending On Selection From Dropdown

Jun 12, 2013

I have 3 different tables on a sheet which I want to do a vlookup on depending on the selection from a dropdown.

I created the ranges I want to use in 3 cells and tried to reference the cell rather than the range. Excel no likey:

=vlookup(B2,A1,2,FALSE) instead of =VLOOKUP(B2,D1:H14,2,FALSE)

Is there anyway I can do what I am trying to do?

Excel 2007 :: Populate Another Cell Based On Selection In Dropdown List

Mar 7, 2013

[URL]....When I select a name in column B, it populates column C's dropdown with that name's list of units. When I select a unity type in column C, I'd like it to automatically populate column E in the same row with the value associated with that unit. The values associated with a particular unit can be found to the right of the sheet. So if in row 2 I select Blake in column B, then Unit 5 in column C, I'd like column E to be populated with 14.

Edit: using Excel 2007.

I attached stripped down version of the sheet which is small enough to post. None of the things I removed should affect the topic at hand. The full sheet is available at rapidshare.

Example =Jan!M6, =Jan!N7, =Jan!O9 etc.

I know I should be able to automatically enter these same cells for the remainder of my worksheets with out manually going in and typing each one (there are a lot of entries.) I just can not remember how to do it. The next sheet is named "Feb" and "Mar" etc.

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.

Dropdown List Selection

Jan 30, 2007

I am trying to make a spreadsheet where I use a drop down menu for several of my vendors. When I select the Vendor's name from the drop down menu (for example in A1), I would like A2 to display that vendor's phone number. But when I switch vendor name from drop down list in A1, A2 would need to reflect the new vendor's contact info.

Create Dropdown List By Selection

May 6, 2014

I am trying to create 2 drop-down lists (based on named ranges), where the contents of the second selection change based on the first selection. On one sheet, I have a list of equipment that is quite long, but is broken up by categories. I have named ranges for all the category names, and the equipment in each category. On the other sheet (user side) I made the first drop down the list of categories, and would like the 2nd drop down to be the pieces of equipment that correspond with the chosen category. I have tried using data validation and nesting IF formulas, but it only works for the first 4-5 categories, bc my formula is longer than the Source field allows in Data Validation. Any other way I can make this work? Can I use a macro for this? If so, how to write it as this would be my first macro

Dropdown List Selection Fills Two Cells

Dec 26, 2008

how to create drop down lists which is making a sales forecast template for my small company look pretty jazzy. Of course, now I want more out of it and can't figure it out.

I successfully added a drop down list for a sales person to pick a supplier, let's say their selection populates cell E4. Once selected, the next cell over (F4) gives them another drop down list with the products made by that particular supplier. The next cell over (G4) is in a column titled "Unit Cost", how can I make the Unit Cost cell populate automatically when the product selection is made in F4?

NOTE: My "lists" are on Sheet 1 along with my working spreadsheet. I have a Suppliers List, Products List (for each supplier), and anticipate I will need a Price List for each Product List, right?

Once I finish the spreadsheet can I cut and paste all the data to sheet 2 (I put it 100 rows below my spreadsheet to hide it)?

Manually Enter % And Update Price (Formula)

Jun 9, 2009

I'd like to be able to add 10% to column D and have the prices in A, B, C change accordingly. Is there a formula for this?

A B C D
2009 Distributor CASE Price2010 Distributor CASE Price2010 Distributor EACH PriceVariance from 2009 price135.00148.000.0592108.25100.000.040062.8875.006.250066.6096.008.0000


PS: Right now I have it set up working the opposite way, the prices are entered and my formula tells the user by what % the price has changed. The user wants to be able to tell the formula what % is desired and have the prices change accordingly.

The formula I am using for the way column currently calculates is:
=IF((G2=0),"",(((G2-F2)/F2)*1))

A Column Of Cells Where Manually Enter In A Date

Jan 4, 2010

I have a sheet where I have a column of cells where I manually enter in a date. the format is d-mmm-yy. Before the end of the year rolled around I was able to enter in say only 12-31 and it would automatically change that to 12-dec-09, now when I do that it spits out 12-dec-10. It's not a big deal to type in the extra -09 to get it right but was wondering if there was a quick/easy fix to get it to know that I don't want a date in the future?

All dates I type in will be in the recent past...never more than 3 months or so old and never later than today's date.

Excel 2007 :: How To Create Dropdown List But Options Reducing After Every Selection

Aug 17, 2011

Is it possible to do a drop down list that allow user to select pre-defined selections but everytime when a selection is chosen, the list reduced?

Example,

I have can choose Apple, Orange, Durian and Mango.

The drop down can only select these 4 fruits.

So there are 4 cells in Column A1, A2, A3, A4.

A1 selects Mango and then A2 will only have 3 options to choose. So until the last cell, he can only choose the last fruit left.

A1, A2, A3, A4 are not selecting in descending order thus it could be A3 selecting first, then A2 and then A4.

I'm using excel 2007
