Cells Left Blank When Using Data Validation

Mar 4, 2003

I am using Data Validation and I don't want the user to go past a cell without putting in an entry. When I leave the box (ignore blank) unchecked it doesn't do anything after I have protected the document.

Fill Blank Cells With Data On Left

Dec 14, 2007

I have a macro that creates mutiple, though varing numbers of, columns. Once the columns are created, a blank column is set up to the right of them. When the data is ideal, only one cell in each row created by the populated columns will have data in it. So lets say that in this example, the macro created 23 columns of data. A1 is blank, B1 is Widget, and C1 through the end are also blank. I need a macro that will look at the rows and find the populated column and copy that string of data to the blank 24th column (to the right) created after the poulated columns. So X1 (the 24th column) will have Widget placed in it.

Now I need it to do one other thing. In another example, let say there are 5 columns created this time. In the third row, there is data in A3 and D3. If they are the equal to each other (A3 value being 143256 and D3 value being 143256), then I need the 6th column created to have 143256 placed in it. However, if the data differs ( A3 value being 143255 and D3 value being 143288) then I need the word "Scrap" to appear in the sixth column.

Excel 2010 :: Shifting Cells Left And Then Up If Left Cell Is Blank?

May 8, 2014

I have a 2010 excel sheet containing 14 columns and 45082 rows in total. I am quite illiterate when it comes to writing macros but I know that what I need can be achieved with a set of codes.

To be more clear, I inserted two tables below. The first one represents the current data structure, and the second one is the way I want my data to look like.

Current data structure looks like
Variable 1
Variable 2
Variable 3

Macro To Check Validation Dropdowns Left Blank

Oct 27, 2008

Got a table where I've placed Data validation - List on them.

Placed a macro on a button so that the data on the table where the validation list is placed is transfered to another sheet (same workbook).

What I need is a to modify the macro assigned to the button so that when the button is clicked to activate the macro:

a.) Can identify if there are any blanks on specified cells with validation list
b.) Stops the macro from copying the fields to the other sheet
c.) Alert the user of the blanks (an alert stating there is a blank would suffice)
d.) Alert should preferably be similar to a Stop alert from Data Validation.

Can anyone help? Been reading through several threads but don't seem to find anything that could help me - tried reading a Visual basic thread and now i've got a headache....

Data Validation List With Only Non-blank Cells

Aug 21, 2009

I have a list in one worksheet which comes from "=SALESMEN!$D:$D" but the list is extremely long with blank values. How can I make the list only show values from column D which are non-blank?

Currently the list goes up to 30, however I want to use all of Column D from the SALESMEN worksheet, that way if I add to it, the names will automatically be added to the list in the other sheet.

Countif Left Cells Are Blank?

May 19, 2014

how to set up a formula that would count the number of numbers in a column, only if the cells before those cells are blank. In plain English: total the number of occurences in each column, provided the value in cellrow is the first occurence in that row starting at column A. E.G

A
B
C
D
John
x
x
Dave
x
x
Kyle
x
x
Bob
x
x

Count would return under Column A, 1; under Column B, 1; (because row John has a value in AJohn it is ignored), under Column C, 2; under Column D, 0.

If Blank Cells, Paint Yellow. If Cell To Left Is Less Than A Number, Don't Paint

Sep 8, 2009

I have a spreadsheet which contains 39 columns with a header row. The number of rows varies per spreadsheet. I'm running into a problem with highlighting(painting yellow) cells. Really the problem is selecting the cells to be highlighted. The macro is skipping some of my code completely and in other cases leaving some cells unhighlighted.

1. All blank cells in row AG should be painted yellow.

2. If column AF contains a cell with number 900 or greater, then the cell in AG (same row) should NOT be painted yellow.

3. All blank cells in rows AC and G should be painted yellow. Some spreadsheets may not contain blank cells.

Problem with the VB is not performing the code after the first command. It will highlight MOST of the cells in AG but for some reason it is leaving a few blank ones unhighlighted. The blank ones are usually at the bottom of the rows. I have no idea why it would miss these.

I believe the "ucase" tag is incorrect since its looking for a number but I am not sure what to put in its place and if I use something else should I dim it as ""?

I've attached an excel spreadsheet which contains a sample to this problem. I've also attached what it should look like if my code worked.

Adding Blank In Data Validation List?

Mar 17, 2006

I have a spreadsheet with some cells setup with a drop-down list containing Y, N or N/A

This is being used on a TabletPC but if I make a mistake or need to change back to a blank field I have to invoke the soft keyboard, activate the cell and hit backspace then close the soft keyboard - quite a long-winded procedure just to change an incorrect choice!

What I would like to do is add a blank to the list so if I have to revert back to a blank I can just use the stylus to choose a blank from the chooser list.

How do I add the option of inputting a blank from the Data Validation List bearing in mind I am using the Data Validation Source box for entering my choices directly and not specifying a range of cells?

I have tried adding "" and even a space to no avail.

Data Validation - Blank Cell Not Working

Sep 11, 2013

I have a tracking sheet... in that I got in column C say "priority" there I have a drop down list date say P1, P2, P3

Now I need to restrict that if a user enters a data in the C2 and trying to enter a data in D2 leaving the drop down list data blank in C2. A error message saying "pls select priority forst" etc...

I got the following solution from moderator:

You can apply the Custom Data Validation formula =LEN(C2)>0 to D2, making sure that Ignore Blank is unchecked.

It works but, when I enter something in that cell it gives the error message and when I click OK or Cancel it just ignore the conditions and leave the data what ever I entered and moves further.

Macro Copying Row To Next Blank Row On Another Sheet With Data Validation?

Mar 19, 2013

I am currently working in an excel file for which i want to create a macro. I am using colomn F as the base from which it should be determined whether a row should be copied. In colomn F the user can select three options through data validation. If 'completed' is selected, the whole row should be copied to the second sheet, and each copied row should be pasted to the next empty row. The data on the source sheet starts at row 11 and should be copied to sheet 2, starting from row 11 as well.

Return Data Validation Without Interspersed Blank Rows?

Jun 17, 2014

I have a list that has blank rows mixed in. I'd like to return a list without those blank rows to be used as a dropdown menu for a budgeting tool.

I tried using the offset formula from the link below but this just cut off my list after the first blank rows showed up.

My current list looks something like this:

5000-Salary
5000-01 - Hourly

Prevent The User From Saving The Data Input From The User Form If Any Of Those Three Fields Is Left Blank

Feb 9, 2010

I have a user form that has a combo box "City" two text boxes one called "Flight" and the other "Date". What I'm trying to do is to prevent the user from saving the data input from the user form if any of those three fields is left blank. The code that I have so far checks all of the required fields, if any are left blank a message notifys which field(s) is left blank and return the focus back to that field. But the rest of code also fires.

What I really need is either to stop the code if any fields are blank and return the focus back to the blank field, the user completes the field(s) and clicks the save again, or better yet, pause the code until all the required fields are completed and then complete the save. (There is actually another 200+ lines of code in this sub, but I deleted it to keep the post a little shorter.)

Imported Data Creates Blank Cells That Aren't Really Blank

Feb 21, 2006

Here's what I'm attempting to do: For each column, X,Y, Z, I am attempting
to count nonblanks. However, the data was imported from Access and Oracle,
and Excel treats what appear to be blank cells as nonblanks. I've tested
this theory by highlighting a couple of "blank" cells and deleting them, and
my count changes. So, can I get Excel to put a value into my "blank" cells,
so then I could filter it out, or create a formula that would only count
dates in my columns (which is what I'm after).

This is what I'm looking at:

A B C
1 2/4/2006 2/6/2006 ("blank")
2 ("blank") 12/13/2005 1/7/2006
3 2/20/2006 1/15/2006 ("blank")

In each column if I use a COUNTA I'll get a total of 3, instead of 2 for A,
3 for B and 1 for C.

Blank Or Grey Area In The Left Of The Screen

Apr 30, 2008

I am running into a seemingly random event upon executing a rather long program in Excel VBA: a square area turns gray in the left of the screen in Excel, making invisible everything under it, and affecting every sheet and workbook open. The only way to get rid of it, so far, has been to restart Excel. I thought it pertained to a faulty Office installation (XP/2002), but then it also happened on another machine (with Excel 2003) where I installed the application.

How To Show All Results If Parameter Field Left Blank

Nov 3, 2013

I have three search boxes in XL , two are search from and to dates and the other is search be ref.

I can currently search by dates and ref but would like to show all records in the specified dates if the ref field is left blank.

I am using the query writer and referencing back to cells in XL. I don't use the wizard or SQL. I have tried many options and think I should be using a OR statement with a wildcard but can't seem to get the result, does the wildcard just show the blank cells in the actual data?

Apply Conditional Formatting To A Cell When It Is Left BLANK

Nov 30, 2008

I'm trying to apply conditional formatting (shading) to cells that are left blank.

(Purpose: I am designing a research template for a client to complete with data and want the spreadsheet to show them where they've "missed a bit"!)

(When I go to the conditional formatting box, it asks me to specify when "cell value is"..."between/not between/equal to/not equal to" etc. But there's no option to specify when the cell is blank.)

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.

Copy Data In Non-blank Cells Within Range And Paste Into Cells On Another Worksheet

Jan 19, 2012

I have data in some of the cells within range A26:A39

These cells are populated via an IF function on another worksheet. Even though the cells appear blank (as in the value returned is ""), there is a formula in these cells. I think it's called formula blank?

I am looking for a way to copy the data from the cells within the range which are not blank (ie: not = "") and paste this data elsewhere on the sheet in a list with no blank spaces in between.

I anticipate that there will be 4 non blank cells within this range.

Ideally I would have data from the nonblank cells copied and pasted to cells
A40
A41
A42
A43

Clear Cells With Data Validation But No Value

Mar 10, 2014

In Column C, I have a variable range (usually like, C5:C100000) that has data validation in it. However, only about 10% of the cells have a value from that data validation list in them (which is what I want). I'd like to write a macro that only cleared out the cells with no value in them, so that they no longer had any data validation in them. Is this possible?

Clear Data In Cells With Validation

Jul 8, 2008

I have several cells on a worksheet which contain data validation and force the user to select from a list, and several other cells with free user input. I want to use a macro to clear all data, and return the cells containing data validation to blank. (I have a blnak row at the top of all my lists, so there is a selection for "blank".)

I have no problem clearing the cells requiring user input, but my recorded macro would not select the cells with validation and return them to blank.

The first cell containing validation that I need to clear is M39. I have my code listed below for clearing the other cells. If I could get a clue on how to return M39 to blank, I could figure out the rest of the cells.

Drill Down Data For Validation Cells

Oct 16, 2008

Attached is the spreadsheet I am working on, log sheet and example sheet. As you can see from the example sheet I have location, Equipment type, equipment id and some others. As you can see on the log sheet, at the moment people select the information from validated cells, but if they select Point Machine from the equipment type list they have to scroll through all the equipment IDís when they only really need to see 10 equipment IDís relating to Point Machines. Is there a way to get the validation cells to do this or is there another way. I am very very new to VBA if this is an alternate way to do this.

Data Validation In Range Of Cells

Nov 6, 2009

In need data validation in a range of cells (lets keep it to A1 for the example please). The data being entered is a 9 digit number, which needs to satisfy the following:

The 7th and 8th characters should be equal to an even number and be greater than zero, but less than 35.

Example 1: If 123456789 is entered in the cell, this would return an error because 78 (although being an even number) is above 35.

Example 2: If 987654321 is entered in the cell this would be allowed as 32 is an even number and less than 35.

I have a list and set cells with a List Data Validation so you can choose them from a drop down menu. What i want to do is when you choose one of the option is the cell next to it come up with other option relating to the previous. E.G.

Data Validation - Copy / Paste Over Cells

May 1, 2014

I want to prevent copying and pasting over cells with data validation as this means the validation is overwritten. To get around this I've selected all the cells with data validation and unlocked them, then protected the worksheet with all boxes ticked apart from format cells, columns and rows.

This prevents copy/pasting from overwriting data validation but it doesn't prevent data being pasted in that doesn't meet the validation criteria.

So for example, say -1 is in cell A1, with no data validation. In B1 there is data validation, which doesn't allow negative numbers to be entered. If I copy and paste A1 into B1, the data validation isn't overwritten, but it doesn't stop the non validated data (-1) from being entered! If I then double click on B1 and press enter it recognises the validation criteria is not met.
