VBA Restriction To Cell Input Dependant On Other Cells

Oct 2, 2007

I have a sheet where I want to not enable someone to enter data in a cell unless there is data entered in a range of other cells.

Range A1:A5 compulsory data to be entered
Range A6:A20 No data can be entered can be entered unless A1:A5 is filled in

Does someone have some code that can enable me to do this?

Variable Locked Cells Dependant On Cell Change

Jan 12, 2010

I'm trying to make a spreadsheet more secure to prevent unintentional changes.

What i'm looking to do is to lock all cells so no changescan be made unless the user clicks column A.

Column A should remain unlocked and when the user clicks it i would like the entire row unlocked for editing (but only after column A is clicked)

I will run a macro to lock the entire sheet again once the sheet closes.

Highlighting A Range Of Cells Dependant On Data In Any Of Those Cells

Jul 20, 2009

On the attached sheet I am trying to indicate that enough data has been entered by highlighting the entire column. Any 3 cells in Rows 7-13 and 18-36 will be filled in with any of the values from cells O6-O11 (hidden). When the total = 6 i would like to highlight the entire column to indicate it has been completed.

The aim is two fold: to ensure that the correct number of points is allocated in each race, and secondly to indicate which column is the next to be filled in (as human error sometimes misses the column and adds the points to either the previous or next columns). You could call it idiot proofing the sheet. At present i have the cells in Row 37 conditional formatted to show this, but would much prefer the entire column to highlight.

Conditional Formatting Dependant On A Range Of Cells

May 21, 2009

On attachment, I am trying to highlight values in column AA dependant on any values appearing in range AF4: AQ8 less 15 minutes. eg at present the value in AA29 is 13:22. I would like this cell to highlight as it is greater than 15 minutes before AH4 at 13:25.

The purpose of the sheet is to highlight any times in column AA that fall within 15 minutes of the start of a major meeting. These major meetings are pulled from another sheet, and a drop down box is used on that other sheet that then transposes the major meeting times to this sheet. I have tried an "Or' statement in a conditional format, however an error message appears around not using a range in a conditional format.

Validate List - Restriction

Jul 1, 2009

I have a sheet that contains two values in seperate columns that I need to concatinate into one value for the drop down. If I use one value my code works but doesn't show all the values. If I use both values I get a 1004 - Application Defined or object defined error. I bolded the section that if I add I get the 1004 error. Is there some sort of restriction when creating the validate list for a drop down? My list is not reaching 65000 characters which is the string cut off.

Dim intAdEventCol As Integer, intAdEventNmCol As Integer, intRow As Integer
Dim intLastRow As Integer, intLastCol As Integer
Dim strAdEvent As String, strAdEventNm As String
Dim strAllAdEvent As String

Do Until intRow > intLastRow
strAdEvent = Worksheets(gstrcDataWorkSheet).Cells(intRow, intAdEventCol).Value
strAdEventNm = Worksheets(gstrcDataWorkSheet).Cells(intRow, intAdEventNmCol).Value
If intRow = 2 Then..........................

IF Formula That References A Cell And Returns A Different Result Dependant On The Number In The Cell Being Referenced

Oct 2, 2009

I'm trying to do a formula that references a cell and returns a different result dependant on the number in the cell being referenced.

For example I've said if A1 has a 3 in it then put the word TEST as the result, plus if it has a 4 put the word RESULT.

What I wrote as my formula is as follows-


It works fine when I only use one result but goes wrong when I add two. If I change the words I want to show to numbers it comes up fine but with words it just returns a Value error.

Automatically Shade Cell Dependant Upon Text In Aother Cell

Jul 13, 2009

Im writing a spreadsheet that will act as a hotel room booking diary. There will be 52 sheets (representing each week of the year) and each sheet will therefore represent one week

Each sheet will look at operate the same. Running horizontally will be the days of the week and running vertically will be each of the bedrooms. There are 22 bedrooms in total and each room will have 12 cells allotted to it for each day - lets call this a 'block' and presume that the first block runs from C10 to c21. The final of these cells C21 will have a validation and the user can select 'PAID' 'TO PAY' or 'INVOICED'

If the user selects 'PAID' in C21 I want cells C10 through to C21 to shade GREEN
If the user selects 'TO PAY' in C21 I want cells C10 through to C21 to shade RED
If the user selects 'INVOICE' in C21 I want cells C10 through to C21 to shade YELLOW

Formula For Obtaining Value A Dependant On Cell X

Jan 16, 2010

so basically, im trying to find a way to get cell G3 to have Value X dependant on value from Cell G2. e.g. if cell g2 is 8 and 9, g3=10 if g2 is 11, g3=20 and so on. i dont mind having to add a preset table of values if we need, but it would be set on sheet 2.

Value from cell G2 will always be between 4 and 20, set by the user. what i want is that each of those values gives G3 a pre-planned value.
if g2 has value 4. g3 value would be -5
if g2 has value 5. g3 value would be 0
if g2 has value 6. g3 value would be 5
if g2 has value 7. g3 value would be 5
if g2 has value 8. g3 value would be 10
if g2 has value 9. g3 value would be 10
if g2 has value 10. g3 value would be 15
if g2 has value 11. g3 value would be 20
if g2 has value 12. g3 value would be 20
if g2 has value 13. g3 value would be 25
and so on until it reaches g2=20

i was thinking of setting a table on sheet 2 for the g3 values, and get an IF function to do something like IF g2 = a then x, if g2 = b then y etc etc. im just not sure how it would work, unless an INDEX function would work better?

Copy Picture Dependant On Cell

Jan 9, 2007

I am trying to make an Excel sheet with a frontpage sheet and a data sheet. In the data sheet I have several columns with data and then in the end a cloumn with pictures. On the front page sheet I can easily with VLOOKUP formulas transfer the desired data from the data sheet to the front page sheet but I cannot seem to figure out how to copy the picture. When I try to copy the cell with the picture in it, the formula only copies the cell value, which is "0" because the only thing which is in the cell is the picture. how to copy a given picture from one sheet to another based on the information in another cell like a "Vlookup" formula?

Cell Format Dependant On Rows

Mar 13, 2007

I have

Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)

If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1:A10")) Is Nothing Then
With Target
Select Case .Value

Case "(None)": .Interior.ColorIndex = Null
Case "One": .Interior.ColorIndex = 38
Case "Two": .Interior.ColorIndex = 18
Case "Three": .Interior.ColorIndex = 35
Case Else: .Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone
End Select
End With
End If

End Sub

My problem is that columns A to H are yellow(36 I think) and are merged cells.
And Cells AW2 to BD2 are also yellow. The cells inbetween are white.

At the moment when the Cell value is "(None)" the cells turn white, I dont want this. I would like them to go to default.

Save A File Dependant On Cell Reference

May 21, 2007

i have a order form that is customer dependant. the cust name on the form is manually entered by the user within a msg box. i have specific cusotmer folders on a shared machines C drive where i would like to save these excel docs to.

i understand that the cust name must match the name of the file and there needs to be a way to save those that do not have specific folder matching what was entered as the customer name.

the overall goal is to have the file name saved as CustomerNameDeliveryDateInvoiceNumber.xls where CustName is from cell "M3", delivery date is "Q7" and InvoiceNumber is "Q1".

Sub OrderFormSave()

Dim strCustFileName As String

savefile = "\SrSharedDocsCSPSharedFILESCustomerOrderForms & strCustFileName & "

ActiveWorkbook.SaveCopyAs savefile

Altering Cells Automatically With One Cell Input

i have on sheet one a cell that requires an order number ( e.g something like j2345a ) what i would like to do on sheet 2 cell c10 i would like to extract the letter after the 4 figures so that what i would see in that cell is j2345.

what i should add is that the letter after the four numbers isnt always an "a" so it could be any letter that needs to be removed

i also need cell c10 on sheet 2 to remain empty if there is nothing entered in cell e8 of the first sheet

Column X has, with spaces between 4 possible contents:

St1 St3
3Q today
FM today
1Q today
NM today
3Q today

and so on for 1500 rows.

I can write this in Lotus in about 2 minutes, but VB has me stumped. I hope someone can put me on the corrrect path.

Protect Or Unprotect Cells Based On Cell Input

Nov 21, 2006

I am working on my spreadsheet and was wondering if anyone knows if cells can be Protected or Unprotected based on the value of another cell?

Here is what I am looking for:

If cell "A16" on the "Input Sheet" equals AR then Protect Cells J16, K16, L16, M16, N16, and O16

If the value of A16 on the Input Sheet DOES NOT equal AR then leave those cells unprotected.

Has anyone ever done anything like this? On my spreadsheet it would allow the user to skip the unnecessary cells as opposed to having to Tab through them. Not a big deal but definitely would be a time saver and a lot more user friendly.

If you have any questions or concerns just let me know. I will wait to see what the Excel Guru's come up with.
