Display Text In A Cell

Jan 16, 2009

irst Problem:

I need a little help with the same employee time sheet that I am working on in Excel 2007. I have a dropdown box in Cell E1 that lets the employee select their name. Example, if the choices in the drop down are: Smith, John Jones, Paul Nelson, Bob and Hall, Bill. So the names are Last Name, First Name. Once the employee chooses their name, I would like Cell G1 to display "Hello (E1). Welcome to AA Company." (where E1 is the employee's name but First Name Last Name - so it is reverse order of the choices in the dropdown). If E1 is left blank, I would like Cell G1 to display "Hello. Welcome to AA Company."

Second Problem:

How can I get rid of #VALUE! in a cell without messing up the formula of that cell or the cell it corresponds to??

Cell Will Not Display All Text Characters? !

Aug 14, 2008

I pasted in 1369 characters (including spaces) to a cell, and NO MATTER what I try, all characters will not print.

If I have the cell up for formatting on the function line, all text can be seen, but for some reason it cuts off the last sentance or more and will not show it in print preview.

I've tried all kinds of cell text formatting, cell merging, etc. with no luck. The only work around I found is to just have the "missing text" on the following row.

How Can I Display Another Cell As Hyperlink Text

Oct 16, 2008

I have a workbook that has a main sheet which provides stats from other sheets within the workbook. I have a hyperlink which goes to a certain place of sheet 2 and the displayed text shows the contents of a cell on sheet 2.

I know it's possible to have the hyperlink go to a certain cell on another workbook as opposed to worksheet, but I cant display the contents of a cell on another workbook as the text on the hyperlink.

Display Text And Its Formatting In Other Cell

Oct 9, 2008

Without using a copy/paste macro, is there a way to display the text and its formatting from another cell? Obviously, the usual formula "= A2" only brings the text from that cell. Example:

A3: un-am-big-u-ous

G4: = A3 (but I want the font formatting used here as well)

Display Text If Another Cell Filled

Apr 26, 2007

Is it possible to display text based on the contents of another cell?

I am creating a report that includes all our data for the year per month - this builds dynamically every time i create the next months report.

So far i have data for,

Column A-- Column B
Jan - have data
Feb - have data
March - have data
April - no data yet...

In this example i would want the following text to appear in another cell,

Statistics: January - March 2007

It would dynamically update to January - April 2007... once April cell had data.

It's probably very easy but after several attempts i can't get it working as such.

Display Text When Hovering Over Cell

Aug 16, 2007

I have a cell with a number in it. The number refers to a cost center and is validated by using a drop down menu. In another sheet I have a table that gives a text description of the cost center. Is there a way this description can be shown when I hover the mouse over a cell with a cost center number?

(I can of course use vlookup and display it in the next column, but I am wondering if there is a way to show it only while hovering.)

Excel - Display Text In Cell But That Cell Have Different Value?

Jul 31, 2013

excel help.jpg

Basically it is a training matrix.

basically I need A30, A32, A34 and A36 cells to display the characters they are currently displaying but when i copy and past any of them into a new cell on the matrix for example into cell B11 I want to be able to SUM the total of that column and display it in cell B24

So to recap, I would like A30, A32, A34 and A36 cells to hold 25, 50, 75 and 100 as there value but this can not be displayed it is just a value which i can use to calculate.

I am ok if i have to link the cells with another worksheet but i have tried doing this also i dont know if i need to use VBA.

Display Text In Cell Only If Value Exists In Different Cell?

Jan 3, 2012

Let me see if I can make this succinct and clear. Cell AQ2 (where the formula below resides) looks at the value in cell E2. It then references table $K$3:$U:$100 on sheet "LookupTables" to get the value to display. It does this (and works great) with the formula below:


I would like to add one more argument. I would also like it to reference cell U3 in the LookupTables sheet and if there is anything in that cell to go ahead and complete the formula, but if there's no value in that cell, it should return no text and be blank

Display Named Range Contents Based On Text In Cell

Aug 24, 2009

I have some dynamic named ranges in sheet1, and in sheet2 I have data validation dropdown list which has the names of all the DNR's in it.

What I want it to do (in sheet3, no less) is for the user to be able to pick a named range from the dropdown list, and have a particular column in sheet3 then display that entire named range.

I have made a 'data' worksheet which is the source for the data validation in sheet2. Each item in the list identically matches the name of each of the named ranges. I was hoping to be able to use some form of =INDIRECT but alas, no such luck.

So it's almost like a copy and paste function I'm after, where:

If you pick "Schedule_From" out of the DD-list, then DNR 'Schedule_From' is what is pasted in Column B in Sheet3.

DON'T want to use a PivotTable.

How To Hide / Display Text

Feb 13, 2013

I am trying to hide/display text by using form fields. I swiped the idea from a spreadsheet I obtained from a vendor and thought I would extend it to suit my purpose.

When I check the box for "table one", I'd like for the data that I have associated with it to display. When I uncheck the box, I would like for that data to be hidden. The goal is to be able to choose one data source and see at a glance which fields come from that source and what their names are. The formulas that currently exist for the cells in column I do a nice job of putting text in a field when the box is checked, but I don't want to have to rewrite the formula in the cell if/when the source of the data changes. It's a lot of long schema/table/field names. Maybe that's the only way, though...

I scrubbed and mocked up column J to try to demonstrate. It's sorta color coded.

And it might be that using form fields is not the best way to hide/display text based on source type.
