VB To Activate List Drop Down Boxes When Data Is Entered In A Cell

May 20, 2009

I have a Validation drop down box (column B) and a defined range drop down box (column E linked to the Totals tab with A2-A31 defined as Products) that I need to activate everytime data is added to a new line in column 'A' and cells in column 'B' or 'E' are selected. Additionally, they need to activate if the cells in column 'B' or 'E' are selected for any of the old data so changes can be made. This will help reduce the overall file size and calculation time for a year's worth of data.

There is already some code on the worksheet that looks like it can be adapted if someone knows how to code in the drop down boxes.

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.

List Box Of Ranges, Pick One To Activate That Cell

Mar 30, 2007

How can I add multiple cells (ranges) to a listbox, and when the user clicks one, it will activate that cell in excell. I thought about have the list box for the text, and a corresponding array that holds the actual range or address, but I cant get it working.

Long version:
I have a search feature that, when you type a name, it searches through a column and finds the name. Now if there are multiple matches to your string, I want it to add the full name to a listbox, and have the user pick one from the list to activate.

So basically, if I search for the name "john" but theres multiple people with that name ("john doe", "john smith", & "john mazz"), it would add the three to a list box, I would pick one from the list, and it would activate that cell.

I have everything done except that last part. I have it adding multiple matches to the list box, but I cant figure out an easy way to activate the correct cell when double clicking the item in the list. I could have it search again for the selected full name, but there is likely to be a case where one person is entered twice.

Data Input Form Not Validate List Boxes

Dec 8, 2009

I am creating a spreadsheet where the user enters food they have eaten that day. The way this is done at the moment is with validated list boxes, one depending on the other using the indirect function. I want to be able to make this into a user input form. Is there a way of adding these validations from the spreadsheet, to an input form.
I want the input form to have an input for the day, food group, food item, and quantity of the food. The food item needs to depend on the food group.

Sorting With Drop Boxes

Oct 22, 2008

Adding new items to the list, and then sorting them, I've found that the drop down boxes which I was oh-so-happy to utilize... don't move with their relative rows when the item name or department is sorted. IE. The option to select Supplier 3 for Thing 4, stays where it is if you sort by department, giving incorrect options. how to sort this while moving them, or on an alternative menu box system which would sort?

Multi-Layer Drop Down Boxes

May 14, 2009

I have a file that needs 3 drop down boxes.
Box 1 = Room Style
Box 2 = Unit Number (based on Room Style)
Box 3 = Building (based on Unit Number)

I know how to get Box 1 and 2 with data validation, but I don't know how to get Box 3. Right now, my data list has Box 1 data in Row 1, and Box 2 data in the following rows, in the appropriate column.

File attached.

I don't have the Building info in there yet because I didn't know where/how to put it in. But, if you picked Manchester, 131, Box 3 needs to be B1N.

Aug 3, 2009

Column A - I want to make drop down boxes #1-30 - which would represent quantity
Column B- That will be 30 rows of dollar amounts
Column C - To be able to calculate the quantity x dollar amount

I'm able to create the drop down boxes with the numbers, but say I choose the number 5 by the dollar amount 200.00 It won't calculate 5 x 200.00....

I've been trying the formula you would use to find an average, and i've tried the if statments, but my drop down box isn't being recognized.

Drop-Down List: Generate A List Based On The Value Of A Cell

Jan 7, 2009

I am trying to generate a list based on the value of a cell. That list will then be used as the range for a drop-down list. Example: Cell A1 returns a value of 15
A drop-down list displays the values 1 through 15. Cell A1 changes to 20
Drop-down list displays the values 1 through 20. I assume I'll need a two-step macro to accomplish this but I can't figure out the logic to populate the drop-down.

Jump To First Entered Character In Data Validation List

Jan 5, 2014

This is my data validation formula:

=INDIRECT(VLOOKUP(H104,cat_opt_Table,3,FALSE))

Some of the lists will have up to 200 lines in them and I'd like to find a way to simply to jump to the first letter entered in the data validation cell.

Does the list need to be alphabetized?

Could it be something that is entered into the data validation box? This spreadsheet has data validation in 35 columns.

Using Drop Down Boxes And Not Being Able To Select Previous Values

Dec 10, 2009

I am wanting to configure approx 100 drop down boxes to all point to the same range of data, approx 40 names, but once the name has been selected, none of the other drop down boxes will be able to select that name.

eg.
range:
Dave
Mike
John
Steve

select Dave in drop down box in cell B5. Next cell, B7, I want a drop down box without Dave in it.
If i then change my mind, and select Steve in cell B5, it will automatically adjust cell B7 to allow Dave as he is now no longer selected in cell B5.

Drop-down Boxes Make File Size Too Large

Aug 31, 2009

I'm using Excel 2007. I have a cell with a dropdown box that has the values 1 thru 10. When I save the file (as an Excel 97-2003 compatible .xls file), it's 17kb which is normal. I want multiple dropdown boxes going down the same column, so that every time the user goes to the next row, another dropdown box will be displayed. I copied the cell with the dropdown box, selected the entire column, and pasted the dropdown box.

This time when I save the document, it's over 2MB in file size. I've seen other spreadsheets with several columns of dropdown boxes spanning thousands of rows and they stay under 30kb. I don't know what they did differently to keep their file size small. Why is my file size so large and how do I fix this? Do I need to use a 'paste special' function?
