VBA Macro To Create Multiple Data Validation Lists From Variables & Named Ranges

Nov 10, 2008

I cant seem to find the correct syntax for creating 14 validation lists using array members as the source of the named ranged. The validation lists are stored on a different worksheet, the Named Ranges are created fine, as are the ranges that are having the validation applied. The Syntax I am having a problem with is

Public Sub assignDVList(WSD As Worksheet, sListName As String)
Dim DVListName As String
DVListName = "DV" & sListName
Application.Goto Reference:=sListName
With Selection.Validation
.Delete
.Add Type:=xlValidateList, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator:= _
xlBetween, Formula1:="=" & DVListName

It is the Formula1:="=" & DVListName that is creating the headache. The sub is called as the array moves through the columns, using the header row as the Name for the Named Range, and the data Validation worksheet uses the same naming except it has DV in front.

Creating Cascading Data Validation Lists / Comboboxes Without Named Ranges?

Jul 28, 2014

Is there a way to add cascading lists (from data validation or form/activex controls) to my excel spreadsheet WITHOUT using named ranges? Maybe structured references?

I need to avoid the named ranges because it will cause my workbook to have duplicate named range titles which I cannot avoid.

As a general example my issue arises because I have something like this where the titles are the same but they map to slightly different data. These also have to be cascading because the titles align to another list which I do not show in the example. I also considered using pivot tables, but the issue there is that the data validation lists repeat in the same worksheet. So I would have 3 cascading lists in row1 dependent on each other, but the same 3 lists in row2 dependent on row2 but not the previous row.

Dependant Validation Lists With Dynamic Named Ranges

Jun 18, 2008

in a sheet I have two cells using data validation and dropdowns - the source for the first cell is a static named range - no problems. The source of the second cell is dependent on the value in the first cell and the sources are dynamic named ranges.
The dynamic ranges in cell#2 is named according to the value in cell#1 and I therefore have referenced the ranges using the INDIRECT function - but this only works with static ranges.

In the data validation source field for cell#2 I have the following formula:
=IF($A$1="",the_full_range,INDIRECT($A$1))

Apply Data Validation Using Multiple Named Ranges

Oct 20, 2009

I am trying to apply data validation to a column of cells using named ranges. However, each row has a unique associated named range. For example:

A_______B
Birds____*
Dogs____*
Cats____*

I can easily apply data validation to these three rows separately using named ranges.
Ie three separate named ranges:
=Birds
=Dogs
=Cats

However, I need a way to quickly apply data validation to column B using different named ranges for each row because there are about 2,000 rows. Is there a way to reference text in the cells of column A that contains the name of the named range? Or maybe a bit of VB code that could do it quickly?

Data Validation List With Multiple Named Ranges?

Mar 25, 2014

Can you create a Pull-down List that contains data from Multiple Ranges.

If I have a List of Names Running down column A (A2:A10) another List of Names Running Down B (B2:B25) and a Third down C (C1:C15) each of them named Ranges ("List1", "List2" & "List3"), can I create a Pull-down list in Cell A1 that would include the names from all three ranges?

Create Unique Lists From Multiple Ranges

Mar 12, 2008

I have values in Worksheet 1, spread over A1:D25 and A200: D250.

In worksheet2 I have values again from A1:D25 and A200:D250.

Is is possible to only get the unique values of those 4 ranges with the advanced filter? They all need to be shown in eg worksheet 3 starting in A1, (so kinda merged in a sense)?

Is that a thing more for a UDF, or is there a excel function/option that does exactly that?

I have been looking for ages for that kind of function/option, since I thought it must be possible. But this sure does not look to be a standard functionality, or is it?
Is there a (free) add-in that might do this kind of thing?

I found this code on some office help page:

Sub SortAllRangeData()
' Place column header for temporary sort area.
Range("IV1").Value = "Numbers"

It kinda does what I needed, but it lists the actual data in the same spot it used to be. I want to be able to list the sorting in a different column on a different sheet and in 1 column only. Is this difficult to modify so it becomes a UDF or is this something totally different?

Dependent Data Validation With Dynamic Named Ranges?

Aug 7, 2014

I am unable to use dependent data validation lists using the INDIRECT function when the initial named range is a dynamic one.

See attached.

The named ranges 'Men','Women','Children' are all dynamic based on number of entries in each column order to accommodate a growing list, whilst also not having blanks in the dropdown (hence I haven't used entire column ranges). The named range 'test' is a static one.

Column H has a dependent data validation based on entry in Col G. This works for the static list, but not the dynamic one!

Dynamic Named Ranges And Indirect Data Validation INCOMPATIBLE?

Sep 25, 2009

I can use a dynamic named range and a direct reference to the name and the DV works.

I can use a standard named range (not dynamic) and an INDIRECT() reference to a cell with the name of the range in it and the DV works.

But if I try to use a dynamic named range and an indirect reference to a cell with the name of the range in it, the DV fails.

Any workarounds out there? This project includes a LOT of DV lists, getting them to self-maintain is important if I can do it.

Macro To Create Named Ranges Based On A Header Row.

Oct 14, 2009

I need a macro that can set up some named ranges using the text in the header row and the sheet name. The header row will always be in row one, but the number of columns will be dynamic. The amount of rows in the range will need to be dynamic also. To clarify, every used cell stating in row 2 in a column will be the named range with the sheetname+text in row one of the column the actual name.

Macro: Create Named Ranges. Unknown Columns/Rows

Sep 9, 2006

I need to make named ranges from an unknown number of columns(at least 1) each with an unknown number of rows. Each column has the name of the named range as the first row, and then a variable number of rows containing part numbers.

I can do it 1 by 1, but id rather do it in a loop so that blanks dont cause errors. there will be different people using versions of this sheet with different model/part number information What i've tried: Count number of colums with row 1 containing data (11 max, which is more than will ever be used) add into array(I know i dont really need to add into the array, but i might use it later for some other code). The problem i'm having is finding the range of rows that need added to the named dynamic range and adding it.

modelcount = Range("G7") 'G7 (for now) contains =COUNTA(H1,I1,J1,etc)

For i = 1 To modelcount
Redim Preserve Models(0 To i)
Models(i) = Cells(1, i + 7)
Range1 = Cells(2, i + 7).Address(xlA1)
lastRow = Cells(rows.Count, i + 7).End(xlUp).Row
Range2 = Cells(lastRow, i + 7).Address(xlA1)
Reference = Cells(2, i + 7).Address(xlA1)
ThisWorkbook.Names.Add Name:=Models(i), _
RefersTo:="=OFFSET(Reference,0,0,counta(Range1:Range2),1)", Visible:=True
Next i

This gets me the range i need, but doesnt create the named range properly. If i go to insert>names>define, the named ranges are created, but they dont relate to the data in any columns. It shows the variable names rather than the cell range the variable represents.

Multiple Dependent Data Validation Lists

Sep 12, 2007

I've looked at the data validation tips and understand how to make a second dropdown dependent on the 1st, but how about a 3rd dependent on the prior 2 selections and so on.

I would like to have dropdowns based on a dataset of 4 columns (Location, Department, WorkGroup, Employee) that frequently gets updated. I would like to have the user select a location then a department then workgroup and employee. I would then fill in a worksheet with other pertinent information. I can get the 1st two dropdowns to work, but haven't found the key to being able to continue to drill down based on the 1st two options.

Dynamic Named Range As Validation Lists

Nov 13, 2006

In the attached example I have a column of data on worksheet 2. Extra rows will frequently be added and removed from the column. I want to use that column of data to populate a validation drop down box for a whole column of cells on sheet 1. (Target cells coloured yellow for demonstration purposes)

I donít want the validation drop down to be full of blank rows so I set up a dynamic named range to refer to the column on Sheet2. It all works really well...but...only for cell D6 on sheet 2. It doesnít work on any of the other target cells on sheet 2 or on sheet 1. I have been looking at this for far too long and it has begun hurting my brain.

Macro To Print Multiple Named Ranges To Single PDF?

Apr 29, 2013

What I have is a large number of sheets in a workbook (26 to be exact). Each of these sheets has one specific named range. The file itself is quite large so I would like to print these ranges to a single PDF file. I did my best to search for this topic in the forums and while I did find some macros that were close, there was some sort of piece of code missing. Also, will how I list the named ranges determine the order of how they will show up in the PDF File?

Dynamic Validation Without Using Named Ranges

Nov 24, 2008

I have a question regarding dynamic validation. I have attached a sample spreadsheet to clarify if my explanation doesn't. I have a list of codes that map to a list of other codes that are not one to one mapping. I would like for the other users of this code to populate what the correct code on our side is but without having to go thru the entire list in a validation field. (if that makes since)

Using validation before in a similar instance i used indirect to grab a named range to help shorten the list for them. However in this case that would be a ton of ranges i would have to set up! I've tried Match, countif and index in an offset formula in the validation list but can never get it to work!

I'm trying to make my worksheet generate a bunch of named ranges whenever it is activated. However, I'm getting a "Not a valid name" error on the line in red. The value of r is a string, so I really don't see what the issue is. Another time, I got a object defined error, but I think I've declared everyhing too. That line is very similar to the line above, and tends to work once (the first time around the loop). After that, I get the errors I mentioned.

Template Using Validation Tool To Create Dropdown Lists

Sep 17, 2012

I have been working on a template using validation tool so as to create drop down lists. Now I have to select data from a combination of two fields.

Example: I need info from Dataset A and Dataset B to create a new drop down list from Dataset C.

I tried with If AND formula =IF(AND(B4="Test";B6="de10");"ok";"no") where due to the selected values I got Ok as a return answer. However I need to have a dropdown list of relevant values selected and I am having some issues.

When I name my group (Dataset C) as DE10 so that it can be linked to DE10 value (dataset B) so that I can do a validation then I get an error as DE10 is an excel field name; therefore I thought of the IF AND solution as I was thinking of doing so that I can name Dataset C as XYZ (instead of DE10) on the data sheet however I am having some trouble in getting the drop down list to work.

Basically I need a drop down list from dataset C when certain info is picked from Dataset A and Dataset B.

Adding Named Ranges - Use Offset Or Create Using VBA

Create Named Ranges From Column And Row Headers

May 6, 2013

Is there any way in Excel to create single-cell named ranges from a combination of the labels in the rows and column of a spreadsheet.

Here is an example:

CompanyA
CompanyB
CompanyC
CompanyD

Sales
100
200

[code]....

I would like the first cell (containing the 100) to have a defined name of (something like) "SalesCompanyA", and the second cell to be "SalesCompanyB". And so on - e.g. the cell with 300 in it should be "CostCompanyA".

I can do it manually, but I have a huge spreadsheet & was hoping it could be automated. Just to be clear, it needs to be a single cell range. I know you can create a range from a selection - but this seems to create ranges of the entire row and/or column.

Create Dynamic Named Ranges With Code

Oct 13, 2007

I am employing code to label dynamic ranges that takes the form of,

ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="dms", RefersToR1C1:="=OFFSET(DMS!R10C5,0,0, COUNTA(DMS!C5),COUNTA(DMS!R10))"
'dms_j
ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="dms_j", RefersToR1C1:="=OFFSET(DMS!R11C10,0,0,MATCH("" * "",DMS!C10,-1),1)"
'dms_p
ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="dms_p", RefersToR1C1:="=OFFSET(DMS!R11C16,0,0,MATCH("" * "",DMS!C16,-1),1)"
'dms_r
ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="dms_r", RefersToR1C1:="=OFFSET(DMS!R11C18,0,0,MATCH("" * "",DMS!C18,-1),1)"
'dms_t
ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="dms_t", RefersToR1C1:="=OFFSET(DMS!R11C20,0,0,MATCH("" * "",DMS!C20,-1),1)"

The dynamic ranges are getting entered but the problem is that the range "dms" overshoots by six cells into blank cells at the bottom of the table, and the rest of the ranges overshoot by ten cells into blank cell area. I have deleted, cleared and destroyed everything around the table and re-sized the active area to no avail.

Create Chart Using Dynamic Named Ranges For Series

Jul 27, 2012

I've created my dynamic named ranges using the OFFSET function, ex.

="OFFSET(SAMPLE!$D$4,1,0,COUNTA(SAMPLE!$D:$D)-1,1)"

I'm now trying to get my chart to use that range. I read at [URL] .... that I need to make sure my series reference is a fully qualified reference. So I've entered that series reference using the name of the workbook followed by the range name (=2012-PIRS.xlsx!SAM_CLAR2DEL). I have two copies of my workbook (one as xlsm with VBA project, and one with xlsx without VBA) and I can't get Excel to accept the series value in either workbook.

ERROR MSG:
The formula you typed contains an error. Try one of the following:
- Make sure you've included all parentheses and required arguments.
- To use a function, click Insert Function on the Formulas tab (in the Function Library group).
- If you include a reference to another sheet or workbook, verify that the reference is correct.
- If you are not trying to enter a formula, avoid.........

Dynamically Create Named Ranges Based On Cell

Dec 16, 2007

I am looking for a solution to dynamically create named ranges according to the contents of cells in a particular column. The following code works for 1 word names, but in many cases the title cell contains numerous words separated by spaces. Is there a way I can adapt this code so that it will name the ranges with the spaces removed? For example, where cell C2 contains the narrative 'Sales Ledger Control', I would want the range name 'SalesLedgerControl'.

Range("R2:Z2").Name = Range("C2")

The named ranges are referred to in numerous other worksheets, where selecting a particular narrative from a listbox creates a dependant drop-down in the adjacent cell (eg if Sales Ledger Control is selected, the dependant list contains names of customers). FYI, the data validation in the other worksheets ignores the spaces in the range names, ie: =INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE(G2," ",""))

It would not take me long to name the ranges manually, but a macro is preferable because the narratives in the title cells will often change and the range names will obvioulsy also therefore change.

Can Automatically Create Named Ranges Based On Adjacent Cell Values?

Jul 11, 2013

Macro that could look at a row and take the values of two cells, combine them and then create a range name for a third cell in the row.

For example; for row 5420, in column C there is the word Florida, in column D there is the number 6235, and in column F there is a sentence or two. Is there a way to automatically create a named range for the cell of column F that would be named FLORIDA6235? And if so, can the macro do this for every row even if the word and/or the number changes.

I have roughly 28,000 rows and nine columns that I am working with. That's why I was wondering if there was a way to automate this. There are 10 states and I don't know how many different numbers attached to the states, however there are many state and number combinations that repeat, so there would be several rows with Florida in column C, 6235 in column D but a different description in column F.

How To Get Multiple Dropdown Lists To Populate Results In Named Cell

Sep 28, 2012

I was just given a task at the office of creating a in depth excel spreadsheet. Here is what I need:

I have one drop down list that represents the state a person lives in.
I have another drop down list that represents the the type of property it is.

If you select CA in drop down 1 and Multi Family in drop down 2 you get the end result in (specific) cell.

Then if you select AZ in drop down 1 and SFR in drop down 2 you get different end result in named cell.

How can I get items within 2 different drop down list to call up the end result in a 3rd cell?
