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..........................

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.

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
MsgBox "You must enter one of the following in this cell:"
With Application
.EnableEvents = False
.EnableEvents = True
End With
End If
End If
End Sub

Userform ListBox Within Range To Add Addition Row Within Range Restriction

Apr 28, 2014

I can’t seem to add the “Insert New row” or where to add or maybe I’m not even doing it right. I have a worksheet with 4 column and need to only function in these columns as I have information doing something else.

In Column A, B, C and D are my main column for the following functions:

Column A will act as titles
Column B will act as sub titles (There can be multiple sub titles withing the same title, needs to be added on an as when requirement)
Column C will act as possition (There can be multiple position withing the same sub Title, needs to be added on an as when requirement)
Column D will act as sub position (There can be multiple sub position withing the same Position, needs to be added on an as when requirement)

All columns will react to what is in Column A. I have the following code for column A:

[Code] .....

This will look in my next available row to see if it is a blank row then add my information from my userform listbox.

I have tried to add the same procedure to my column B but don’t even come close to what I need in this function.

I need that when I double click my sheets cell in accordance to the following code:

[Code] .... show my userform then to add the information but only to look in Column A to D and not pass this column.

I have added a Workbook to add the other information has it could get long to actually explain but to quickly explain:

I will need to add a title (already set up with a userform, listbox and on click of this listbox it will transfer the information to my sheet) This will look in my Column A to see where is my next available blank row and add the listbox value to it. If I double click column B, next to the columns A title, I need to add this information on the next available blank row but to create a Insert new row as there could be addition information going in column A or B and so on... I presume it will be the same code for C and D as this has to function the same way.

Validate A URL

Dec 6, 2007

We have an internal web site that has files I need to download daily. The filenames have date strings in them. I've setup some formulas to make the url based on the NEXT dated file I need to download.

And I don't have direct access to the drive the files are stored on, I can only get them through this web site.

Right now, I have individual macros for each file I need. They'll follow the url and download the file if it's there, or return a message to me if it's not. But there are several different files. I have to run each macro one at a time, at different intervals during the day until they get downloaded.

Is it possible to make a macro loop through all the URLs (I have them stored on a sheet, called "FileDownloader" in Range G2:G10) and check if the URL's are valid (without actually attempting to download the file). I can then make some kind of dashboard to tell me when the files are ready for download.

VBA To Validate Entry?

Feb 25, 2014

I have a range of cells (A1:A50). If "Hello" is written in any of those cells then a MsgBox says "Are you sure?". If vbYes the cell is colour coded blue. If vbNo then it is red.

The problem I have is that "Hello" may already exist within the above range. I only want the above to fire on the cell that has just been changed within the range.

I have some code but it checks every cell within the range whenever any cell is changed within the range. Whereas I just want it to fire on the active cell if that makes sense?

Validate Date Entry

Mar 27, 2014

I have a ComboBox on a UserForm. One of the fields that I fill in is a date.

After the date is entered I want to check if it's a valid date.

Private Sub cboEnterDate_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
' Make sure a valid date was entered, it must be in the format 2013/10/21.
On Error Goto ERR

'If Not IsDate(cboEnterDate.Value) Then

[Code] .....

MsgBox "The date entered is not a valid date", vbInformation
Cancel = True
End Sub

The code:
'If Not IsDate(cboEnterDate.Value) Then
execute the If routine if I enter the date 2014/03/33

When I enter the date 2014/03/0001 it do not see it as an invalid date and exit the routine.

The code:
If Not IsDate(FormatDateTime(cboEnterDate.Value, vbShortDate)) Then
send the execution to the ERR routine if I enter 2014/03/33

When I enter the date 2014/03/0001 it do not see it as an invalid date and exit the routine.

How can I get the validation to catch the 2014/03/0001 as an invalid date as well.

Validate Cell Values?

Apr 7, 2009

I would like to simply validate the value entered to a cell against cells of a number of columns. Id like it to return a vlue to be able to report it in another cell as below. (had to cmma separate the columns, can't get them aligned in this editor)

A, B, C, D, Q, R
1, b, 1, 2, 1, existing


A, B, C, D, Q, R
1, b, 1, 2, 5, not existing

So the user enters a value in cell Q to check against the other columns and return a value to R. Additionally, the cells to be validated (A - D) may contain more than one character, i.e. cell A could = 1b2.

Duplicate Entries, Validate Only One

Jan 22, 2007

In my spreadsheet, on ( sheet A) I pick up a value to a range (O2:O22) from other worksheet (sheet B), the value is validated when a cell in the same range but other column (A2:A10) reach a specific criteria.

But in the same column if the criteria is typed again I gone a have the same value on range( O ), and I dont want that, because this value represents a total for a day, and is to be added to other cell.

I'm using this, to pick up the data
(A2:A10) Criteria
(O2:O10) value picked up

on SheetA, Sumif(sheetBA10:A40,A2,SheetBK10:K40)

How can I count only one of the values picked up from sheet B?

Textbox - Validate For Numbers Only

Apr 24, 2007

I have a VBA user form that asks for user's input. The form has 3 textbox. I would like to check for the entry & make sure that it's numeric & not null. If it's not numeric or null, I'd like to display a warning message & highlight the textbox & ask for entry again.

Here's what I have but it's not really working. The warning message will come up but the next textbox is highlighted:

Private Sub TextBox1_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)

If Not IsNumeric(Me.TextBox1.Value) Then
MsgBox "Please Enter Only Numeric Values"
End If

End Sub

Private Sub TextBox2_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)

If Not IsNumeric(Me.TextBox2.Value) Then
