I want to either retain validation in a cell when I paste data into it - or
I want to apply a validation to a cell which already has data in it.
The validation only seems to work when you apply the rule to an empty cell then manually enter data into it. I ideally want to be able to paste multiple columns into validated columns to check for format compliance.
I am trying to secure a worksheet using data validation. I want to prevent users pasting over data validation fields, however I want to allow users to be able to still use the copy/paste feature as long as the data is valid.
Attached is a sample that I found on the forums. The current code does not allow any paste functionality.
I have created a daily operating room schedule in which each time slot has a drop down box for the Doctor doing the procedure and the Group of doctors from which he/she came.
It is a yearly schedule with each day of each month duplicated on a tab for that month - the same daily schedule for each.
I have been able to duplicate each day right up until the 25th of the month in which I attempt to save the spreadsheet and am given an error stating it can not save some of the data, though the data appears to be intact (the validation drop down lists)
Upon closing and reopening the spreadsheet, all of the cells that contain validation including and after the 25th of the month are simply gone.
I have attempted to attach a copy of the file but I keep encountering an error with the database.
I've got a table that has to be manipulated by multiple users. Within the table I have several column ranges with validation lists (in drop down boxes) in order to limit responses. However, I'm finding that most of the users are pasting data in from other sources that may not have been in the validation list, or may be in a different format, etc., and it essentially undermines the reason for using the validation.
I've tried protecting the sheets using various options and tried looking around online for a solution, but I'm not finding how to get around this.
A2's validation is dynamic as it's selectables varies based on the selection made by the A1 Validation. (=indirect(a1)).
My problem is this....once if have selected from both validations...if I go back and change the A1 validation to a blank (or empty value) or clear the contents on that cell....validation A2's value remains as it was. I would like it to recognize that A1 is blank and also become blank (or goto an empty value).
I would like to know if it's possible to populate a data validation list based on what is selected from 4 validation lists?
for example: On sheet1: If 'Group1' is selected from data validation list1 then data validation list5 will show a list of all items from Group1. If 'Group2' is selected from data validation list2, then data validation list5 will display all the items in 'Group2'...
I'm trying to figure a to enforce dual data validation on a single cell. That is, I need to restrict the user to entering only a decimal value, only if a particular other cell (say A2) is blank. To put it another way, if A2 is blank, the user can enter a decimal value, but if A2 is not blank, the user cannot enter anything. I can use Data Validation to enforce either the decimal restriction or the ISBLANK, but I'm not sure how to make them work together.
I have 2 columns First Name & Surname. What I want to do is create a data validation list on the surname which results in the 2nd data validation list only showing the first names which link to one of the surnames.
i.e. If I selected Smith in the 1st validation list then I would only like to see 'Paul' as an option in the 2nd list
I have a macro that is checking to see if a column meets my criteria. If it does I have it set up to copy the entire row and paste it to the next sheet. How can I write the code to tell it to paste to the next available row on that sheet?
If I want to "Insert Copied Cells" in place of Yellow on Row1 and shift the cells down, the rows would look like this:
How can I make it so the rows would be the following during such a paste:
This is because I have hundreds of cells that I need to insert as columns all the while pushing complete rows down. If you're trying to understand why, it will be for some online marketing purpose as demonstrated here in this sheet: [URL] ...
I have the following which works as it should. However I want to tweak it so that instead of the Environ Username getting pasted into the sheet under the last used row in Column U, it pastes the environ username in the first blank row it finds in Col U starting from row 1 and looking down.
I've got cells which change after I use Solver to do simulations, These cells after the calculation is run I'd lke to paste into a seperate sheet and row for example (in preparating of charting them for example)..
I would like to paste it as folllows for example... .. but problem is, let's say the below list are in column A of the new sheet, than column B would be the first output of the calculation in the other sheet, column C would be the second output from the calculation in the other sheet. and so on..
I don't know the first thing on scripting, but I'd like to click on button where the calculations are made which when clicked on ,will paste to the other sheet in this sort of manner below.
Each calculation will use another column.. so the script must recognise there is other columns to the left already filled, ie. B, C, D, E F, coresponding to the results of calculations already performed.
I am trying to use the code below to select certain information from different areas of each sheet in the workbook and paste it onto the List sheet one after the other so I end up with a long list made up of short lists off each sheet. The macro runs through each sheet OK. each sheet has the correct area I want to copy highlighted, so I know it's selecting the right area for copying, but the 'List' sheet is blank, i.e. nothing has been copied to it.
This macro is one I'm trying to put together from other macros I already have, and they all work
Sub Generate_Repair_Kit_List() For Each ws In Sheets ws.Activate Const testColumn = "A" ' change for your data Dim lastRow As Long Dim topCell As Range Set topCell = Range(testColumn & 1) ' top of column lastRow = Range(testColumn & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row 'work up from the bottom until we hit 'a cell that has a border on the bottom edge. Do While lastRow > 1 lastRow = lastRow - 1.........
I had some of values in Column A, B & C for ex: column A has brand name, column B has model name and Column C has sub_model name here i have a limited values i need to make it as drop down list but i had a problem with the below formula.
I have two files: let's say File1 and File2.File1 has one column: datas are in a text format.I copy this column. I want to paste it in my second file.File2 is closed.I open it and i paste my column. Here's my problem. If i let my first file opened, there's no problem(!!): my column is pasted as i want. My datas keep their original format. But, if i close my first file and after, i open File2 and i paste my column, then my datas lose their original format.My column takes a numeric format.I can see it because my datas are on the left in the column.And i can chek it by a sum: if i do 400+200, for example, the result is 600. In the first case(text format), the result is 0.I don't understand why.If someone can explain me this situation, i'd be happy.I repeat: my second file is closed. I open it after my copy in the first file.
I regularly copy into notepad then copy that into excel because I don't want to carry over the text formatting. Is there a better way to do this? To set up the cells so that they don't try to carry the formatting over?
I have a graph, that I would like to be able to copy from one sheet and paste into another, is there away of doing this without dropping the data i.e. every time I copy and paste the graph clears, I don't want to copy the spreadsheet data as well as the graph is purely for a visual
I am using excell 2007 and am having a few problems with conditional formatting. I am trying to do the following. i have 6 cells in 6 columns ( c2, d2, e2, f2, g2, h2 ) each with figures 17.14+ Now i am trying to add a formula so when ever i insert a number in the cell below e.g c3 i want the cell c3 to turn green or red depending on the value in the above cell (c2). so in all:
c2 has the value 17.14 if i insert the value 17.14 or less in cell c3 i want the c3 cell to turn green. if i insert the value 17.15 or more i want the cell to turn red. now i know how to do this in the conditional formatting feature but i want to do this will all the cells refering the the cell above. i also do not want to create 6 diffrent conditional rules.
Is there a formula i can use that can be pasted into each cell and the cell number edited?
I am trying to copy information specifically addresses into an excel spreadsheet to turn into labels in a mail merge. My first column is a name and then the next column is the address. I need the address to be in one box, in three or however many lines, instead of three different rows because when I go to merge it into word, it comes out has several different labels and not all the information on one.
