Validation Gone If Pasting

Oct 27, 2006

I think this may have come up previously, but..

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.

Prevent Pasting Over Data Validation

May 27, 2014

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.

Error When Copying And Pasting Fields With Validation

Feb 24, 2009

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.

Zip file with xls file has been added

Preventing Pasting Of Data Over Cells With Validation Lists

Aug 31, 2006

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.

Clearing Validation Values Based On Another Validation

Nov 11, 2008

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).

Data Validation :: Selected From 4 Validation Lists

Sep 26, 2007

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 do not want to use a combo box for this)

Nested Data Validation: Figure A To Enforce Dual Data Validation On A Single Cell?

Aug 19, 2009

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.

Data Validation Used To Create Separate Data Validation List

Feb 15, 2014

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

Moving Whole Row Down When Pasting?

Jul 9, 2014

Let's say there's a couple row:


Here's a column I will be pasting:

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] ...

Allow Typing But Not Pasting

Jul 12, 2007

On a sheet of my workbook, I need to allow typing but not pasting. I'm using Workbook, because I'd just as soon not allow pasting anywhere.

If the data is copied from within Excel, this seems to work:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub

but if the data is copied from somewhere outside of Excel, it pastes it anyway.

Copying And Pasting

Dec 1, 2007

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.

Macro Not Pasting

Jan 11, 2009

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
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.........

Lost Format After Pasting

Oct 11, 2007

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.

Duplicate Rule Without Pasting

Dec 22, 2009

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?

Copy And Pasting Into Excel

Jan 4, 2013

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.
