## Auto Fill Cells Depending On Drop Down List Selection

Sep 22, 2008

I am trying to make a calendar spreadsheet to enable me to track allowance payments i am due from my company.

This payment is worked out by three conditions - where i am working (7 regions), how many days of the week (4,5,6 or7) and how many hours (<7,8-9 or 10-12)

I have made drop down lists to select each of the values for the three conditions and want to show the total for them

i can total the entire spreadheet for the month up using fairly large "COUNTIF" statements, but i want to be able to show what the exact amount is in each cell not just a complete total.

i.e. i am away for 6 days i get £15 extra, if i am in Europe i get another £50 and if i work 12 hours i get £30.

I want to be able to calculate this total in each cell for that day.

I can send a copy of the spreadsheet i have got at the moment if that will make things clearer than what i have tried to explain.

## Auto Fill With One Of Two Drop Down Lists...?

Jan 2, 2010

I am trying to do this in several cells/several ways, looking for the generic formula, here is one example:

If User selects "Expenses" in
'Activity' B3
from drop down list of "Expenses" or "Income".

I want C3 to populate with drop down list - the words to choose from are listed in 'Expenses' B1:AI1

If User selects "income" in
'Activity' B3
from drop down list of "Expenses" or "Income".

I want C3 to populate with drop down list - the words to choose from are listed in 'Income' B3:AI3

## Auto Fill Based On Drop-down Choice

Dec 13, 2007

I'm working on a workbook that already exists and that contains multiple worksheets (A,B,C,D,...), each with specific info (each row consists of an item name (item 1, item 2, item3,...)and all characteristics of this item).

We now want to add a help page for each worksheet :
A => A help
B => B help
...

So for each item (=row) in sheet A, there should also be an according row with additional info in A help

First, I used static hyperlinks to switch from the item in A to the corresponding help in A help. However the item list can be extended in the future (meaning rows inserted) and this will cause these links to fail. Therefore I switched to dynamic hyperlinks by inserting names (in stead of the original cell names) for each item in both A and A help. This involves a lot of work since you have to give all the involved cells a unique name and you have to refer to this unique name when you set up the hyperlink.

## Drop Down List Auto

Nov 3, 2008

I have Excel 2003 installed on the companies computers. Many people use an Excel file and I am trying to make their work easier. There is on command which has a dropdown list made by me. What I would like to find out is that is there any possibility to make Excel help the user to choose from the drop-down list (the list is quite big). Is it possible to select a cell in this column and type in the cell and then Excel help the user. I mean (this list contains country names in abc order) if the user types S and W then Excel auto-corrects it to SWEDEN. Can this be done with Excel 2003?

## Fill Table Using Drop Down List Data Selections

Jul 10, 2009

I have a couple of drop down lists of data created from lists as well as fields next to it.

What I want it to do is take that data, which is name, start time, end time, days worked, queue (or work type), and fill the table next to it which is just a 30 minute by 30 minute schedule sheet with days of week 1 and week 2 on top.

I figure it would be easier to have a GO button to do this.

I will attach an example of what I mean, but please, if you guys find that there is an easier way to do this, just let me know, I feel this might involve some code/macros instead of excel functions

## Drop Down List To Fill Adjoining Cell With Corresponding Data

## Auto Complete With Drop Down List

Feb 21, 2008

I have developed a spreadsheet that allows a user to "Autocomplete" a name by doubleclicking on a cell and typing in a few letters of the person's name.

I named the range that I want to appear in my list and I created the combobox in sheet 1, not in a userform. My problem is that when I doubleclick on a blue cell in Sheet 1 and type in a few letters of the person's name, the name doesn't fill into the cell. I have already specified a ListFillRange, so the Combobox knows what I am looking for. For some reason, the drop-down list is hard coded and won't populate the name that the combobox has already found. I don't receive any errors from the code that is already in place. If you could help me figure you how to get the names to populate in the blue cells, I would greatly appreciate it.

Attached is an example. If you try doubleclicking and typing in, say "Doe, John" in one of the blue cells in Sheet 1, you will see his name, but when you hit enter it won't populate. The cell stays blank!

## Auto Date Stamp With Drop Down List?

Feb 18, 2009

I'm producing a new spreadsheet to track issues and thier completion. I've used the code I have on another spreadsheet, that I got off this site, thanks. What I would like to change are the following:

1) The status column (F) uses a drop down list, located in cells Z1 to Z5.
When an option is selected, the date updates in column G automatically.
What I would like is for the date to only update in column G if the drop
down list is changed to Completed.

2) If the status is changed to completed by mistake, and then changed back
I would like the date to disappear.

Finally, can I make the date columns jump automatically so the person entering the data goes from column F to column H.

## Drop-Down List With Auto Complete As You Type

Aug 12, 2009

I have a large list of data records, 600+, and would like to use List Validation but find EXCEL's default Validation not appropriate for such long lists. What would be perfect is similar to what you get in Access, when you type in part of the record string required, a drop-down list appears and shows you the record entries that have that string within them and not necessarily in character order, quickly wittling down to the few records that apply and then use your arrow keys to move and select the correct record, etc. Example, I own a salon, and many shampoo ranges have many similar products:

Superstar
Superstar Blow Dry Lotion
Superstar Leave In Conditioner
Superstar Shampoo
Superstar Conditioner...........

## Drop-Down Lists: Can We Fill 2 Columns At The Same Time?

May 13, 2009

Is there a way to have a drop-down list fill two columns (actually, two adjacent cells) when a selection is made from the drop-down list? Maybe using an array in the source formula?

If Intersect(target, r) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
If target > 0 Then....................

## Fill Cells (on Sheet4) Based On Value From Drop Down On Sheet1?

I would like sheet 4 to be filled by information from both sheets. first line would have item chosen from drop down and the next line would be sheet 3 column B.

It is for a catering company. Sheet 1 (menu) is the creation sheet. I would like to use a drop down list to choose from a long list of appetizers. Those of which are on sheet 3 (app list) and held in column A (1-42). As that occurs, I would like sheet 4 (prep list) to generate a list of operations.
