Transpose Named Range For Combo Box List

May 29, 2006

I have been trying to make a combobox for which the list is a named range. However, this range needs to be transposed. ListFillRange doesn't seem to let me transpose the list first. I've tried transposing the list somewhere else first and then adding it, but it seems to want a range as opposed to a reference to a range. I'm so confused now. This is the basic code that I wish would work.

ActiveSheet. OLEObjects.Add(ClassType:="Forms.ComboBox.1", Link:=False, _
DisplayAsIcon:=False, Left:=253, Top:=472, Width:=117, Height:=20). _
Select
Selection.ListFillRange = "=transpose(Stream_Data!StreamList)"

While I'm at it, could someone explain to be how to refer to a combobox. ie. when you create it, you don't name it so how can you refer to it. That's why I have used the selection tool above to add the list.

Validation List To Combo Box Without A Named Range

Dec 5, 2007

I'm creating a sheet that takes three Validation Lists into account. The first two lists are based on named regions. The third list uses the first two lists to narrow a search down so that the user can pick what they want from a smaller selection. I'm using the code from Contextures.com to allow the user to double click the validation list to pop up a Combo Box. This allows me to show more than 8 selections at a time and also gives a little freedom on font and font size.

http://www.contextures.com/xlDataVal11.html

Since the third list is not based on a named region but rather code to compare the two previous lists, when I double click the third validation list a blank combo box pops up. it possible to pop up what ever lists are in the validation boxes.

This is the code that I have in the third validation box which States "The Source Currently evaluates to an error" but works fine for some reason. =OFFSET(CategoryStart, MATCH(B4, CategoryColumn, 0) - 1, IF(A4 = "Description", 2, IF(A4 = "ExtDescription", 3, IF(A4 = "PartNumber",4))), COUNTIF(CategoryColumn,B4), 1)

I tried making a named region that was based on the code, so that the list could change as the user selected different options from the first two lists. This gave me the same problems as I had before.

I've got a Combo Box that I want to be able to attribute Hyperlinks to. I would like to be able to select one of the options from the Combo Box and have the Hyperlink fire automatically. The conditions are:

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.

Data Range Or The Cells To Display The List When The Combo Box Is Clicked

Apr 30, 2009

I know how to turn the autocomplete on and off but I dont have a clue where I configure the data range or the cells to display the list when the combo box is clicked.

I am assuming that this is done in the Edit mode at "linkedCell" and LisfFillRange ... yet I cant get this to work.

ComboBox Add Entry To Named Range If Not In List

Feb 4, 2014

I am trying to work up a referral tracker for my wife's employer. I have Named Ranges on sheet 2, a running log on sheet 1. I also have a userform that is being populated from the ranges on sheet 2. I have the project mostly functional, except for a feature I would like to add in. I am interested in adding to the named range that is being accessed if the entry is not in list, via the combobox1 on the userform. Also, if possible, I would like the list to re-sort behind the scenes so the added entry is properly located in A-Z format for next time. After searching the web a bit, I found some code that might work with some tinkering, but currently I am having issues with it. Here is the bit I am trying to use.

[Code] ....

I have been getting 424 Object Errors and a few others as I continue to mess with this. I am also attaching the project if someone may see a better way of getting the task accomplished. The overall scope of this is to log all referral sources so monthly and yearly reports could be made.

List Unique Values From A Named Range

Dec 4, 2007

I am trying to find a way to create a list of unique items from a named range. I have found a few solutions using filters for ranges that are contained in the one column but not named ranges that contain multiple rows and multiple columns.

Is there any way to copy all of the unique items from the named range to another location? Lets call the named range Table1 and it spans from B2 to J100.

Data Validation List With Criteria Using Named Range

Oct 30, 2012

I have been tasked with creating a data validation list. My data is contained on a separate sheet from my data validation list. I am using a named range to use the data for my data validation list. However, I am looking to add a criteria to my data validation list so that it only is populated with values based on another column on my data sheet.

For example, if I have a data sheet called "Employee" and I have two columns. Column A is a list of employee names and I have named a range in column A as "EmployeeName". Column B is used to define the category of employee. This value is a letter, for example, "A", "B", "C", or "D". This column does not have a named range as I don't know if I need one to get this to work.

I would like the data validation on one sheet to use a list of employees of a particular class from another sheet. Straight forward validation is easy using a validation list with a formula =EmployeeName. But how do I only list employees that have a category "A"? For some reason, I cannot get some of the formulas I have found while searching this message board to work.

Validate Cell Entries To Named Range List

Apr 28, 2009

I have been trying to figure out how to use a named range (on another sheet) to validate the user entered data in a specific column. All my attempts at utilizing worksheet_change event have ended in errors. I've created a simple workbook that shows what I'm trying to do and have attached it to this message. The 'Sample (Data)' worksheet has the data table that would be completed by the user. On the 'Validation' worksheet I have named the range to be used to validate the data as 'rngVal'. So when something is entered under the 'Expense Type' heading, the code would verify that the value entered was contained in the 'myVal' validation list. If it was not present in the list, a msgbox would instruct you to try again. After stealing bits of knowledge and code from many of the posts on this site I cobbled together the following (which results in an error at the 'set rngFind' line):

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rngFind As Range
'Set Target = Cells(ActiveCell.Row, ActiveCell.Column)
Set rngFind = Range("rngVal"). Find(Target.Value)
'If data in column C changes, do the following
If Target.Column = 3 Then
'If the value is found on the validation list, do nothing.
If rngFind Is Nothing Then
Else
MsgBox "You must enter one of the following in this cell:"
With Application
.EnableEvents = False
.Undo
.EnableEvents = True
End With
End If
Else
End If
End Sub

Dynamic Named Range Drop-down List To Exclude N/A Errors?

May 7, 2014

I have a dynamic named range which allows me to have an automatically growing drop down list in B1 as more cities are added in column A. however, my workbook will have N/A errors to begin with before cities are added.

is there a way for my drop down list in B1 not to include the N/A errors and only the cities? of course when the next N/A error turns into a city, i would like the B1 drop down list to recognise this and include it.

Using Cell Reference As List Title When Transposing Named Range

Jun 21, 2014

I am building an interactive sheet to profile a number of divisions based on a summary sheet of about 1200 rows and 90 columns of profiling criteria

I have attached an example but essentially:

1. I would like to be able to select from a list a value which would also be a named range title
2. Have the range information transposed into a row

What works:
1. I can transpose the range information when I use the following formula
I used OFFSET(Governance,COLUMN()-MIN(COLUMN(HGovernance)),0)

The problem:
I cant get it to use a cell reference (i.e. When I select Governance out of a Drop down list of Finance, HR, Governance etc). Having to type in "Governance" to bring back governance range information is fine, but not great when I am trying to profile the Finance or HR division as it then becomes too manual.

Selecting Named Range From Dropdown Validation List To Use In Formula?

Jan 18, 2013

Basically on a summary page, on sheet 1 say I have a formula which picks up the unit cost (I have this as an array across 5 years)

What I then want to do is multiply this by a volume driver. I have a list of these drivers on a seperate page, so for convenience lets say DRIVER_01,DRIVER_02 etc. These are also 5 years arrays.

So what I want to do it be able to select which driver I want to use for volume on the summary, from a drop down box I have set up, and then the formula pick up that named range, and not just recognise it as a text cell.

I need the ability to change the driver in the future, hence the drop down box. I can also get the unit array part to work fine, I'm just struggling to get this driver array to work..............

Making Named Range The Last Active Value Used Within Another Named Range?

Jul 19, 2013

I'm trying to make my named ranges remember the values of the last active cells used within another named range. The purpose of this is to make my charts dynamically change dependant on two criteria selected. My spreadsheet currently updates itself as and when I change the active cell within a single named range, dynamically changing the chart data by using Lookup based on the active cells value. However I want to get away from having several charts showing, I would like to have a single chart which dynamically changes based on a second selection. So the first selection is for a department (Facility) which changes the chart data relevant to that department, the second selection is to dynamically change the chart shown for the pre selected department.

Picture2.jpg

Using the following code when updating just one criteria with several charts

VB:
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)

If Not Application.Intersect(ActiveCell, [MeasureType]) Is Nothing Then
[valMeasurePicked] = ActiveCell.Value [code].....

which works fine but I'm not sure how to add a second selection criteria because my code uses Activecell. I thought that the VBA needed to set the last used value of a range as a variable and therefore allow the second criteria to be selected but am not sure how to put it into practice.

Combine Two Named Ranges Into 3rd Named Range

Mar 14, 2013

Merge two columns into one list in excel

I would like to combine List1 and List2 into a 3rd named range called List3. I was wondering if this were possible without using any additional cells/columns (i.e. I don't want to use Column C like in the example shown in the link above).

Here's the formula from the example:

Code:

=IFERROR(INDEX(List1,ROWS(C1:$C$1)),IFERROR(INDEX(List2,ROWS(C1:$C$1)-ROWS(List1)),""))

I've played around with it, but could not come with any that worked.
