I am trying to use a drop-down list to alleviate errors in a worksheet but was wondering if it was possible to remove an item from the list once it was selected... Here is what I mean:
The drop down list shows:
and there are five columns aside one another with these same options. What I want to know is if I choose resume for the first list, is there a way that I can make that option unavailable in the following four columns and show this:
Or if I use any selection from the drop-down list, it would be removed from the other 4 columns.
I'm trying to create a drop down list which returns values based on what has been selected in the previous drop down list in the adjacent cell, e.g. if 'Apples' is selected in the previous cell then you should only be able to select from 'Gala, Granny Smith', or if 'Oranges' is selected you should only be able to select 'Seville, Blood Orange'. Is there a formula which would do this, or can I use a pivot table somehow? I'm totally stumped.
I need to have a drop down list which displays a different set of values depending upon the value selected by a previous drop down list. ie. (drop down box 1)= x, y, z. (drop down box 2)= either x1, x2, x3, or y1, y2, y3, or z1, z2, z3. I can produce a single drop down box thats not a problem but linking several drop down boxes is beyond me .
I am trying to create a fairly simple spreadsheet with about 8 columns and about 400 rows. One of the columns features a drop-down list with about 8 or 9 different options. Dependant on which option is selected, i would like the entire row to change colour with that option.
For example: FAILED - whole row changes red SUCCESSFUL - row has no fill Tested - row changes to orange
I am trying to generate a list based on the value of a cell. That list will then be used as the range for a drop-down list. Example: Cell A1 returns a value of 15 A drop-down list displays the values 1 through 15. Cell A1 changes to 20 Drop-down list displays the values 1 through 20. I assume I'll need a two-step macro to accomplish this but I can't figure out the logic to populate the drop-down.
why my drop down list defaults to the middle of the list when first clicking on the arrow that opens the list? I created an alphabetical list of all US airports but when I open the list, it starts at "D" instead of "A" which is the top of the list.
I'm currently developing a calendar that has a list in it with lets say 4 options. What I want the calendar to do is calculate at a specific 'cell' the number of entries that are selected during the month.
The idea is to have a drop down on each 'day' and a counter that calculates the number of times one specific options has been selected. Once the option has been selected the 'day' will change to the corresponding color.
I'm building a Excel 2003 workbook that needs more than 3 conditional formats. I've tried the code given in the FAQ: Get Around Excels 3 Criteria Limit in Conditional Formatting but this only works on cells being modified directly. I've also tried the code in the post: VBA Conditional Formatting - Refresh when data changes but neither does the job I need.
I'm using a Format Control to present the user with a list of choices. When the control changes the target cell I want to apply a conditional format to that cell. This image shows the form. When the Format Control selection (in B2) is changed I want to apply conditional formating to the target cell (A2).
There will be up to 10 choices and therefore conditions.
I have a workbook with around 35+ sheets on it and I was wondering if its possible if I could put these sheets in a drop down list in say cell A1 so it would be easier to navigate the sheets. Is this possible with out using VBA code if so how would I go about doing it?
I currently have a drop down list in sheet 1 and the list is being refrenced from sheet 2
Lets say the drop down list is for fruits and my current list in sheet 2 has 4 items Apple, Grape, Mango, Peach.
Now this is what I need :-
1 ) lets say a user wants to enter Orange (which is not in the list ) he can still do so by entering it manually into the cell.
2) Once Orange is entered which is not in the LIST in sheet 2 then that new name gets added to the LIST in sheet 2 so that next time that name appears in the drop down list automatically. eg Apple, Grape, Mango, Peach, Orange [ but Items should not get duplicated eg Apple, Grape, Apple, Mango, Peach, Apple
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?
im trying to create a spreadsheet for different makes of cars, here is what i want to do.
in cell one i want a drop down list for various makes of cars, in cell 2 i want another drop down list for the different models from that manufacturer (depending on which on I choose in cell one), in cells 3 and 4 I want different information depending on the make an model of the car. I have got 1 sheel with all this info on it but I dont know how to make it all work nice and neatly with drop down lists.
Whiteboard 16mm Colourboard 16mm Colourboard 18mm Veneer 18mm Veneer 19mm Veneer laid up 40mm Painted 16mm Painted 18mm.
When I select one of these items I need CELL A1 to return just the thickness. EG: I hit dropdown list and select Whiteboard, CELL A1 then displays 16mm. Or I select Veneer laid up and it displays 40mm. I would imagine this formula would be quite long as I would have these 8 items in it.
in the attached spreadsheet I have multiple sheets. On the tab "Tech IDS", column A is named "Name" and column B is the tech ID that is associated with the name in column A. Column B is validated as List=Name. Now under the tab "CAL Form" under Column A I need to type the tech's name. Now under the tab "CAL SHEET TEMPLATE" the name that I typed corresponds with a given cell (i.e. B2='CAL Form'!A2). Notice though that I2 does not give a tech id b/c of DV dropdown list meeting its limit. Look at I68, Bob's id appears b/c he fits within the limits. My question is... how can I still use the list with more names or can I modify the formula (=INDEX(ID,MATCH(B68,Name,0))) to include another Match search?
My requirement is to implement a drop down list having two values "Yes (Recommended), No", I want the value "Yes (Recommended)" to be default value for all cells on which this validation is put. But also need a message box to be displayed if the user go ahead and select "No" the message box should be like "If you are not certain about this feature please click on 'Cancel' and contact you List Provider." and have 'Ok' and 'Cancel' button on it.
I have been using this formula in my report for a while now and i have just updated the table at which it looks at. The table consists of 3 columns - store, store number & division. The value at what vlookup looks for is the store and i have sorted this alphabetically.
But now when i choose the store from a drop down list i get nothing populated in the cell with the formula!!!
Something happened my excel sheet and my drop down lists are no longer working the way they used to. In the simplest terms I had two columns of data.
Column 1 "names" and column 2 is "years".
The top cell of each column had the title (i.e. name & year). These top cells used to have drop down lists with the little arrow. If I clicked on the cell Named "year" it would give me a drop down list of years. And if I clicked on a year in this list it would change the whole sheet to only display the data associated with the selected year.
I've created several dynamic range drop down lists and used DV procedure. They work fine, but when I drop down the list in a cell, the top item does not show. I have to scroll up to bring into view and select. How do I make the list show the top item.
I have an excel file where different people have to make their comments. So far I have sent out the files on email and they sent it back and then copied their comments to the original file, but from now on I would like to share the file and let them to write in their comments.
In order to make it professional I would like the file to work as following (lets suppose that I am Mr.X and I have to write my comments in row 2,6 and 9):
1. When I (Mr.X) open the excel file, there is a pop up message box with a drop down list saying: "Please select your name:"
2. In the drop down list I select my name (Mr.X) and I press OK.
3. Then I get logged in the file and I will see rows 2,6 and 9 only.
4. After making my comments I save the file and log out.
As for the example lets assume that there are 3 people who are making the comments. Mr.X /rows 2,6 and 9/, Mr.Y /rows 1,3 and 8/ and Mr.Z /rows 4,5 and 7/
I have a spreadsheet that has 5 columns. The first row is the Header row, the second row is for the data input, here are the columns:
Column 1: Company Name, I have a drop down list associated with this column.
Column 2: Sales Person, I have a VLookup function to check for the company name in Column 1 and fill in with correct Sales Person.
Column 3: Total Sale, Manual input.
Column 4: Commission %, I have a VLookup function to check Company Name and fill in the correct Commission.
Column 5: Commission, Basic function of Total Sale * Commission %.
I have a macro created that when run it will take all the information from row 2 and move it to row 3 and at the same time inserting a blank row 2 with the functions for me to fill out new information.
The problem that I am having are 2 things:
1: When running the macro the functions will get applied to the newly inserted row but the drop down list for the Company column doesn't.
2: I would like to be able to start typing in the company name i.e "F" and have it jump to the F's in the drop down list.
