Drop Down List Which Displays A Different Set Of Values Depending Upon The Value Selected By A Previous Drop Down List

Oct 26, 2009

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 .

Drop Down List Which Returns Values Based On What Has Been Selected In The Previous Drop Down List In The Adjacent Cell

Mar 19, 2009

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.

Show List Depending On Drop Down Selection

Dec 18, 2006

Im currently creating a spreadsheet for my work, with common problems and solutions to one of our websites.

When the spreadsheet is opened, the user will click a button depending on what sort of problem he/she is having. In the example attached, if the user clicks on "make payments" a form will appear. This will have a list of problems.

if the user choses problem 1 from the drop down list, then I would like the list of solutions to problem 1(from the MPData sheet) to show in the box below. The same goes for problem 2, problem 3 etc.

Auto Fill Cells Depending On Drop Down List Selection

Sep 22, 2008

I am trying to make a calendar spreadsheet to enable me to track allowance payments i am due from my company.

This payment is worked out by three conditions - where i am working (7 regions), how many days of the week (4,5,6 or7) and how many hours (<7,8-9 or 10-12)

I have made drop down lists to select each of the values for the three conditions and want to show the total for them

i can total the entire spreadheet for the month up using fairly large "COUNTIF" statements, but i want to be able to show what the exact amount is in each cell not just a complete total.

i.e. i am away for 6 days i get 15 extra, if i am in Europe i get another 50 and if i work 12 hours i get 30.

I want to be able to calculate this total in each cell for that day.

I can send a copy of the spreadsheet i have got at the moment if that will make things clearer than what i have tried to explain.

Pre-determined Values In Drop-down List

Oct 5, 2009

I am trying to figure out how to build a drop-down menu with VBA that has 2 built in choices, 'call' or 'put', and based on the selection in the drop-down list (call or put), the value in the cell directly to its left will be 1 (if 'call' is selected) or 2 (if 'put' is selected).

I have tried doing this with the data validation tool, but the problem I have run into is that I do not want to store the items in the drop-down list (call or put) anywhere in the excel sheet.

How To Return Corresponding Values Based On Drop-down List

Jun 3, 2014

I have created a drop down list of various material sizes what I am needing to do is to select a material size from the drop down list and a corresponding value is input into the cell. So on say sheet two (Data Sheet) I have Cell A1 25x25 with Cell B1 100, Cell A2 30x30 with Cell B2 120 and so on. On sheet 1 Cell A1 has my drop down list being the material size ie 25x25, so what I need to happen is if I select 25x25 then Cell B1 is 100 or if I select 30x30 then cell B1 is 120.

How To Look Up Based On Two Values Generated From Drop Down List

May 10, 2009

Ok what I am trying to do is lookup a value in a table (kinda like one below but alot bigger). What I plan on doing is creating a drop down list for the rows that show "A, B, C etc) and then another drop down for (AA, BB, CC etc).

So lets say the 2 drop-down list are set to C and BB
I want to be able to fill another cell with the value -134

I would use If statements but like I said the table would be alot bigger than example. If possible I would rather not use VBA due to work security settings.

a b c
AA-110-110-129
BB-115-115-134
CC-117-133-136

Setting Default Values In A Drop Down List

Feb 14, 2007

I want to automatically set default values in a row dependant on the value chosen in a list. Some of the default values need to be lists where the user can chose to update to a non-default value.

I have tried using a double drop down list. However if the default list value is changed then the dependant list value is changed, the default list is not automatically updated.

Using Drop Down Boxes And Not Being Able To Select Previous Values

Dec 10, 2009

I am wanting to configure approx 100 drop down boxes to all point to the same range of data, approx 40 names, but once the name has been selected, none of the other drop down boxes will be able to select that name.

eg.
range:
Dave
Mike
John
Steve

select Dave in drop down box in cell B5. Next cell, B7, I want a drop down box without Dave in it.
If i then change my mind, and select Steve in cell B5, it will automatically adjust cell B7 to allow Dave as he is now no longer selected in cell B5.

Created Validation Drop-down List - Can I Make The Row Now Change To The Colour That Relates To The Selection From The List

Jan 13, 2009

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

etc.

Is this possible within Excel 2003?

Drop-Down List: Generate A List Based On The Value Of A Cell

Jan 7, 2009

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.

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

Drop Down List Auto

Nov 3, 2008

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?
