Change One Variable When Dragging Down A Column To Auto-complete?

Feb 25, 2013

How do you drag down a column to auto complete the values but do it so it only changes one variable.For example, I am dragging down =IF(ROW()<=$B$5,MOD(E2*B1,B2),"") down my column.

However, I only want the "E2" value to change, and I want B1 and B2 to stay that way. Whenever I drag down, it keeps changing all three values. Is there a way to make it just so that the E2 value is the only one that changes?

Change The Column When Dragging?

Apr 6, 2014

How can I have it so the column (letter) changes in succession rather than the row (number)? Here is my formula :

=SUMPRODUCT(('Web Queries Reference'!A$2:A$600<>-1)*('Web Queries Reference'!A$2:A$600))-0.01

I would like it to be this once I drag the cell formula down to the next row :

=SUMPRODUCT(('Web Queries Reference'!B$2:B$600<>-1)*('Web Queries Reference'!B$2:B$600))-0.01

Auto Complete And Auto Delete With Data Validation

Jan 7, 2008

Within a data validation selection, are you able to do both Auto Complete and Auto Delete? I have this posted at another forum [url]but have not been able to find a solution (a copy of the file, test. zip is there as well). I am not sure it is possible, or, at least I have been unable to get it working. I can do each, but not both.

I have also been utilizing:

Auto Cell Dragging.

May 9, 2006

I have an excel workbook with two sheets:
1. Data.
2. TR.

Once the choices are made (dropdown lists) and the button is clicked, TR sheet is filled. I need a macro that would drag the cells of E4,J4,O4,T4. To the cell beneath them, once data is filled in either C or D, H or I, M or N, R or S. The dragging of the cells will display the results (column E,J,O,T), thus, totals will appear in the CONS sheet.

Variable Effects Of Dragging

Dec 28, 2009

I have found an inconsistency in different PCs with respect to the method of producing incrementation when dragging a grab handle to an adjacent cell. In some PCs just dragging produces the effect, in others a key has to be held down during the drag. I'm sure there are detailed instructions about such a setting, but I have been unable to find them.

Combobox Auto Complete

Jan 18, 2003

I have a worksheet named, "Database2". There are hundreds of names in colum B starting in row 3 of this worksheet.

In the same Workbook is a worksheet named, "Records". I want to create a userform with a combo box, an "Enter" and "Cancel" command button. When typing begins in the combo box I need it to recognize the name from the "Database2" list in colum B and executes auto complete. When the "Enter" button is clicked I need it to enter the name in the first available row in colum B starting in row 3 in the Worksheet named "Records".

Data Validation Auto Complete?

Nov 29, 2006

I'm using a very long validation list for a drop down menu. Is there anyway to setup the drop down so that one could start typing and the list would immediately eliminate to less options?

For example, my list consists of 3000 plant names. Instead of scrolling down to choose a plant that begins with a letter P, is there anyway to start typing "P" in the cell and have the list pop up and jump down to entries that begin with "P"?

I know I've entered data with such a function but can't figure out how to set it up?

Using Auto Complete Handle (+) With Formulas

Apr 24, 2009

I have the following formula in a cell C6 : "='Data Dump'!G20". I want the adjacent cell on the right (C7) to be "='Data Dump'!G21" and C8 to be "='Data Dump'!G22" and on and on. I'm trying to use the Auto complete handle on the bottom right hand corner of the cell (which looks like a + when the cursor is over it) to drag the formula so that the "Data Dump - G" values increase as I go (g21, g22, g23 and onwards). However, rather than the numerical part of the cell incrementing, the character (letter) does so instead, so I get H20, I20, J20 and onwards.

Vba - Context Sensitive Auto-complete

Jan 16, 2007

I had to crash Excel because it had got itself into a pickle - run out of memory or something anyway it was chasing itself up it's own backside.

I rebooted to restore memory and ever since then my Context sensitive auto complete on VB statements, subroutines and functions has vanished and I can't figure out how to get it back.

How to restore this as I have some seriously complicated routines that are MUCH slower to code if I don't have this option.

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!

Creating Drop-down Menu: Using Auto Complete

Dec 6, 2006

I have created a list in a Microsoft Excel Workbook (names and corresponding numbers) and named the list.

Then, I created a drop-down menu through Data/Validate/List that included the names.

I can look the names up in the drop-down box, but I would like to be able to type a few letters and Excel auto complete the rest of the name. For instance I would type Ja...and James Doe would come up with the mes Doe in black (highlighted).

Is there a way to do this in Excel?

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

Auto-complete Feature Cell Drop Down

Jun 1, 2007

I found this code for an auto-complete function from this website: [url]
It works well, but see the web example before using it. You have to name a range MyList with your potential values for it to work.

Currently, you have to click the drop-down arrows to see the potential entries. I want to make it so that after the user enters the first 3 characters it will automatically "drop-down" and show the potential entries. This will save a trip to the mouse and let the user see whether their entry is in the system.

Option Explicit

Dim i As Long

Sub KeyEventOn()
For i = 65 To 90
Application.OnKey "{" & i & "}", "'MyValidation """ & i & """'"
End Sub

Data Validation List Auto Complete

Mar 21, 2008

I am using the same VBA that is discussed in several threads on the internet to create a combobox on top of underlying excel validation. The most relevant post I have found on this site is linked below, however I am told that it has expired and I can not reply to it so I started this new thread.

Data Validation Autocomplete Via Combobox Modification

The VBA code discussed in the above linked thread is working pretty well in my excel file which has MANY different fields being validated. However, there is a problem that I can not seem to get past. Specifically, the combobox is currently showing the validated data behind it, but will also allow IN-valid data to be entered. Is there a way to stop this and force only valid data to be used (i.e., is there a way to force a "re-validation" on exit from the combo box)?

How To Change Reference Cells Specific Amount When Dragging

Aug 14, 2014

So I'm dragging my formula down one cell and as expected the reference cell changes the same amount when I really want the reference to shift Down that column 11 cell so when I take my formula

=IF(ISERROR(LOOKUP(21474836472147483647,'Revenue Book'!L5:L11)),"",(LOOKUP(21474836472147483647,'Revenue Book'!L5:L11)))

when I drag it down one cell the reference should look like this

=IF(ISERROR(LOOKUP(21474836472147483647,'Revenue Book'!L16:L22)),"",(LOOKUP(21474836472147483647,'Revenue Book'!L16:L22)))

Filling Down A Column Without Dragging Over Every Cell?

Nov 8, 2003

I have a spreadsheet that will eventually consist of tens of thousands of rows. Several columns contain formula's. Rather than having to "highlight" a cell and then "drag" all the way down the column over thousands of rows before finally using the "fill down" function I am needing a method to short cut this process?

Is there a function that allows you to, say, nominate a range of cells that you can fill down over? For example, starting from the last row with data entered into it down to say row 12500 i.e. D22:D12500.
