Data Validation / Drop Down Menu With Paste Special

Jan 18, 2009

I know how to use the copy and paste special to copy a formula from one row down many rows in that same column. When I do this the formula will automatically change by 1 number {such as =IF(ISBLANK(C5),"",VLOOKUP($C5,Sheet1! $B$3:D4891,3,FALSE)) then when I click on copy and pasted special each following row will change by one number ---- to =IF(ISBLANK(C6),"",VLOOKUP($C6,Sheet1!$B$3:D4892,3,FALSE))

Can this also be done if the row you want to copy and paste is a row with data validation / a drop down menu? I simply tried using the same process for a row that has data validation the row with the validation has for the source =INDIRECT($B$5)

Is there a way to copy this down about 20 rows and have the ($B$5) change in each row by one number {such as ($B$6 THEN $B$7, ETC...) Or do I just have to do the whole data validation process for each row?

Data Validation / Drop Menu With Hyperlinks?

Sep 20, 2007

I need to put together a report for work.

What I want to do is this:

Create a drop menu. The options within the drop menu to be links (either to another Excel worksheet within the same workbook, or a WORD document).

I know how to create a drop menu, that is simple, but am not sure how to do the hyperlink aspect.

It seems when I actually insert>hyperlink onto the actual text of the drop menu (on the other sheet where i created the drop menu data), the hyperlink is not active in the actual drop menu itself.

Can The Paste Special Menu Be Altered

Nov 25, 2008

if the Paste Special pop up menu can be altered?

I am sure this is not the correct terminology... I am referring to the options that are available when you select Paste Special.

I want to change it so that the only option under Paste is Values. Can this be altered via VBA or is there an option somewhere within Excel to alter this menu. Hope this makes sense to whomever is reading it...

Right Click Menu - Adding (Paste Special)

Dec 30, 2008

I want to add Paste Values to the right click menu in Excel 2007. Can this be done without recording a separate macro to run it? What I mean is If I add the command itself to the right click menu, can it run of of the standard RightClick -> Paste Special -> Values option, or must I record a macro that does those steps each time?

Copy Paste Special As Values Based On Validation Cell Contents

Jan 27, 2007

Need VBA macro that will copy & paste (Special > AS VALUES) from one of two (Data A & B) sheets based on the contents of a validation cell ($D$4) in a third (Report) sheet? The destination starting cell would be $F$11. ALSO - I'd like to have the Named Ranges "DataAExtract" & "DataBExtract" used in the code (for the COPY region) so I can see an example of how to reflect my actual named ranges in my working file.

The reason for doing this is that the "c.Characters...." lines in my conditional formatting macros (attached) are not working on cells containing formula output (in my working file the Report page is all populated by VLOOKUP results), but the macros run fine on hard-coded values. In my attached workbook, I'd like to have the "NEW" macro for the copy & paste step fire first in the sequence of macros running after the FORM button-click (control located in cell $D$5 of the Report sheet), whether that's by writing a new macro and calling mine before the new one ends, OR by consolidating all of my macros plus the new one into one smooth progression.

With this low-tech approach I can get updated VALUES into the report area once the user selects a data source and a customer on the report sheet. The COPY ranges in my working spreadsheet will update based on the selections made in the report page. I tried recording a macro and then modifying the recorded code to add the "If > Then" functionality I'm looking for, but I'm pretty green when it comes to VBA code and syntax.

Excel Macro To Copy Data From Array And Paste To Separate Sheet Paste Special Transpose

Jan 29, 2014

I would like to implement specific cell ranges from two specific worksheets each within 33 workbooks (which all have several tabs) into a summary page in a separate workbook.

The cell ranges are going across my spreadsheet in rows and I would like for them to transpose into a columns depending on the data which I have separated by catergory on the summary page. They are all on the same location in each workbook which is separated by country. The cell ranges are E26:P37 and I would like to transpose them and have them put below eachother without overwriting for my format on the summary page, how I can put this together in a macro?

Show A Certain Cell Depending On Data From A Drop Down Menu.

Jan 2, 2009

I have created a color coded calendar on a spreadsheet for work that shows when a book will be published depending on when it comes into our warehouse, this is on sheet one.

I would like on sheet two to have some kind of filter or statement that would eliminate the need to look at the calendar, I.E. the user would just have to type in the date or select the date from a list and excel would show you what day the book would publish on using the data from sheet one.

I can imagine that this is hard to picture so i have attached the file as well.

Automatically Fill Data Depending On Choice From Drop-down Menu

Dec 28, 2007

I have three lists in the first sheet 'Food', 'Quantity', 'Points Value'
Each food (i.e. tuna, pasta, anchovies) has a quantity (i.e. 40g) and a points value (i.e. '50'). The first list ('Food') has been copied as a drop down list in the second sheet. When selecting a food, I would like the cells 'quantity' and 'points value' to pre-fill - taking the data from the first sheet.

i.e. if say Anchovies has the quantity value '30g' and Points Value '2' on the first sheet, then in the second sheet if anchovies was selected from the drop-down menu, these values would add themselves. how to do this? I have attached a sample file shwoing what I want to do.

Dropdown Menu Data Validation?

Sep 12, 2012

I am trying to create a drop down menu in Excel to display certain values but it's not working. I want to input certain data in the cells. eg, 019, Quebec, Agent, Direct etc. I want to create a drop down list where if 019 is selected, all 019 entries would show up hiding all others. When nothing is selected all values would show up. I created a list but if I have 10 "Agent" entries in the cells, the drop down list also shows 10 "Agent entries rather than letting me select "Agent" and then displaying all agent entries below. I don't know if it makes sense but I basically want to make it easier for people to look for certain entries that they need rather than going through the entire spreadsheet to find all 019's.

Copying Data In Reverse By Using Formula / Paste Special?

Jan 10, 2014

know while doing paste special whether we can copy the data in reverse manner instead of regular pattern. Here, I would like to explain my query in detail.

As you all aware that we use paste special command for multipurpose requirements such as breaking the links/transpose etc. But, here I need to copy the data from last row figure as first in the same context first one as final.

Ex: if Data is 123456 and if we paste the data by using paste special, data will be same may be in in row /column. Here, I wanted to copy the data as 654311 which means reverse. Hence, kindly guide me whether is there any command/formula for doing the same.

Excel 2010 :: Dropdown Data Validation Menu Doesn't Work When Opened On Different Computer

Aug 19, 2013

Using Excel 2010, I set up a simple workbook with a spreadsheet on one page and the ranges for data validation on another. I successfully linked the fields in the "Category" and "Tender" columns with the data on the second sheet, making nice drop down menus. Everything works fine on my computer. However, when we open the workbook on a different station, the drop down menus disappear. If you highlight any of the "Category" or "Tender" fields, the little drop down prompt is missing; they behave like regular, un-formatted fields. It appears that the data validation became un-linked.

We tried opening versions with certain fields locked (Mainly the Total, Breakdown, and Summary areas, but the fields with data validation were still editable), and also completely unlocked documents. Every time, the drop down lists were lost when opened on different stations.

I've attached the completely unlocked version : 00_FLEX TRAVEL EXPENSE REPORT_v3.xlsx‎

Forget to check a box or something? This seems way harder for me to figure out that it should be!

Data Validation: Restrict Drop-down Selection

Sep 4, 2009

I have two fields that do the same thing [preset selection vs custom entry], and I need to restrict one from holding any data if the other already does. One field is a drop-down menu, and the other is a decimal entry. It was easy to restrict the decimal from being entered if a drop-down selection has already been made - Data Validation prevents any entry unless the drop-down cell is blank. It's not so easy to restrict the drop-down, however, as it already uses List-type Data Validation to allow only values from a specified range.

Does anyone have any ideas for allowing the drop-down to function as normal if a specific other field or range is blank, but not allowing a selection to be made if that specific field or range already has data in it? I've attached a simplified example worksheet.
