Drop Down Menu Based On Vlookup Results?

Feb 2, 2013

im trying to create a drop down menu that changes depending on the results of a vlookup. example: I have a vlookup function that populates a field with a product name based on the part number, however in some cases there are multiple products with the same part number. is there a way to create a drop down menu that contains all the product names shared by the same part number based on the part number that was entered?

Dropdown VLookup Menu Returns Multiple Results?

Oct 11, 2011

I'm attempting something new, a dropdown menu using vlookup to find data . If i use the simple example below, using data from B-D on 1 worksheet, where i want to find people by county:

A B C D
Search by County Name County Town
John Sussex Brighton
Eric Yorkshire York
Jim Cheshire Manchester
Liz Sussex Hove
Sarah Avon Bristol

I've created a dropdown menu on a second worksheet,A2, by county search, to return a persons name,county and town. The problem is if i select Sussex i will get 2 names who live in different towns within Sussex. I've created a simple vlookup which works fine, but because of Sussex having 2 results, i created a second vlookup for the second result to appear in the cell underneath.

The problem is that for the results that only have 1 result, the second vlookup returns a the same result as the first result, which i dont want.

Is there a way where multiple results will be shown if they exist, but for one result to appear if only one result exists?

Drop Down Box / VLookup Not Giving Results

Jan 8, 2009

I am making a company wide estimate sheet and having trouble with the drop down box. I have a drop down to pick the branch, but when I name the source it only says branch, even though I named the data on the branch sheet. I would like to be able to pick the branch initials and have it populate the phone and fax number under the main heading but am getting a error there.

Also for the labor is it possible to have it insert the correct labor into the formulas at the labor lines according to which branch is picked from the drop down.

VLOOKUP Multiple Results In A Drop Down List

Feb 12, 2009

I am using the VLOOKUP function to pull multiple columns of information from another sheet in the same workbook based on a name. The sheet it is pulling from is a query. I am looking up product names, and in the query there may be multiple results that the function can find.

VLOOKUP only returns the first result that is found. What I am trying to do is get it to dump all the results into a drop down list in one cell. If I attach a drop down to one of the columns of information I am retrieving, then I can select which of the entrys to display, right? I think this should work I just don't know how to go about setting it up to do it.

How would I set up a VLOOKUP formula that attaches a drop down list containing all the results that the function finds?

Formulas Based On Results From Dropdown Menu?

Dec 23, 2013

I am building a sheet that facilitates managers at our company decipher information that is given to them on a daily workbook I created.

I want to have a drop down menu in Col J, that refers to the major questions they will ask.

Time started (Before)
Time Finished (After)
Number of Cards (More than)
Stops Per hour (more than)
Amount of Time Taken (More Than)

I have set up in Col (K) a secondary drop-down list which based on the question selected in (J) will offer options for the answer E.G Time questions will make (K) refer to options based on time and selections based on amounts will offer numbers as an answer.

The elements in brackets are the parts of the formula that create the search option. E.G If select 'Time Started' it will search for all records that started before the time selected in the next col (K)

Right if that makes sense.. I have completed this. so I have the following: A question drop down list in (J), and an answer drop down in (K) which is dependant on the type of question asked. (I have attached an example)

I want to now have a totals box after the question where it displays a total amount of cols that are true to the details in the question.

After that (if possible) I will want to use conditional formatting to highlight the ones that reflect to the question.

Realistically if possible i wouldnt mind creating a question box, a box that allows them to select 'more than', 'exact' or 'less than' and then the specific value. Basically a conditional formatting box for dummies within the worksheet. Attached is a demonstration.

Changing Values Based On Drop Down Menu Selection

Dec 15, 2009

Attached is the file i am working with. The table spanning from A:AA5:16 contains hours worked per day of the week with respect to the Project chosen from the drop down menus in A7:16. Cells in the range of F,K,O,R,U,X,AA7:16 total those hours worked on a daily basis. The table below should sum the total hours worked per day according to the Project selected in A19 from the drop down menu, with respect to the Project(s) chosen in cell range A7:16. For example, if i am looking for total hours worked Monday on Project RSB i select "RSB" from the drop down menu in cell A19, i want cell F18:19 to be the sum of cells A7 and A9, with respect to the Project selected from cells A7:16. If I select "FRG" from the drop down in cell A19, i want cell F18:19 to reflect the sum of cells F8 and F10.

Hiding Specific Columns Based On Drop Down Menu Value

Dec 17, 2009

I have this model I created where I have two tabs. One tab is an input tab using validation and drop down menus and the other is a display tab. I simply want to hide certain QTRs based on the value of one of the drop down menu results. I tried writing the VBA code below but am a novice when it comes to code. Can somebody please help me fix the below code so that it works properly.

Public Sub hide()
If Worksheets("input").Range("b14") = "Q1" Then
Worksheets("Group P&L").Columns(c, d, e, h, i, j, m, n, o, r, s, t, w, x, y).Hidden = True
ElseIf Worksheets("input").Range("b14") = "Q2" Then
Worksheets("Group P&L").Columns(c, d, h, i, m, n, r, s, w, x).Hidden = True
ElseIf Worksheets("input").Range("b14") = "Q3" Then
Worksheets("Group P&L").Columns(c, h, m, r, w).Hidden = True
ElseIf Worksheets("input").Range("b14") = "Q4" Then
Worksheets("Group P&L").Columns.Hidden = False
End If
End Sub

Vlookup To Access Data Based On A Drop-down List...

Nov 14, 2008

i have been looking around here and it seems like my problem is similar to many's regarding the vlookup function. to me, what i'm trying to do sounds simple enough, but it can't get it to work. i have a table that has three columns, Item Number, Item Description, and Amount.

Each item has it's own number, a corresponding item description, and ammount (obviously), but there are some repeats. What I want to do it input the Item Description, and have one field automatically pull up the Item number, and the next field, pull up the price. I am using a drop-down list for the Item Descriptions utilizing data validation. here is formula that i have been trying to use that is not working: =VLOOKUP(B2,Sheet1!$A$2:$C$18,1,FALSE). i have attached a trial worksheet that i am using to work things out on.

More Drop Down Menu

Jan 7, 2009

I can weld together a bare chassis, or a complete turn-key car, or anything in between. With that I am putting prices next to every option, and part n piece that goes on the chassis. This is fine when I choose welded chassis under car type and just add a few options to it.

However if I choose turn-key or even roller, there are items that i need to choose between like rear coilover manufacturer and what not, but I dont need to add that price in considering its already included in the turn-key price of $135,000.00

So my question is, if I choose bare chassis, can I leave everything the same, but if I select turn-key, can I make it so it does not include that price in the bottom total cost of the car?

How To Recalculate With Drop Down Menu

Jul 30, 2009

I want to make a drop down menu whereby each choice in the drop down would re-calculate my workbook.

Let me explain:-

I want to make a drop down menu in sheet 1 with 3 choices.
The 3 choices come from sheet 2 (row 1, column A, B, C).
I have data in sheet 2 in rows 2 through to 6 in columns A, B, C.
I have sheet 3 that currently uses the data from sheet 2 row 2 through to 6 for column A.

I want to be able to use the drop down menu in sheet 1 to choose either column A, B, or C in sheet 2 and then re-calculate the data in sheet 3 accordling.

I have the drop down menu made now.... but how can i re-calculate the values in sheet 3 after choosing a choice in the drop down?

Resetting Drop Menu's

Nov 1, 2009

If I change the country in cell B2, I would like to have that the cells D2, E2 and F2 show the same name as cell R2. (This is always the first option of the drop menu's)

Cells D2, E2 and F2 are made by using the validate option in order to get drop down menu's.

The source information is in the hidden columns I-Z.

So for example:
if I change cell B2 to Belgium, I would like to see that D2, E2 and F2 also show Belgium immediately. I can then select the place I want to move from Belgium to by using the drop menu in D2 (for exampla Belarus).

As I selected for D2 Belarus, this has to be shown in E2 and F2 also.
I can now select E2 (for example Austria).

If Austria is selected in E2, I want to see this also in F2.

To recapitulate:
If I select Belgium as starting place, I want to see in movement 1,2 and 3 also Belgium, as there hasn't been anymovement yet.

If I let my army go from Belgium to Belarus, I want to see for the two remaining movements Belarus (as this means that the army remains in Belarus)
If I let my army go forward after Belarus to Austria, I want to see in the last movement phase Austria (no movement). If I still want my army to move I can still adapt it.

Functions Using A Drop Down Menu

Dec 10, 2008

I've attached the xlsx file with this post. Now I've created a drop down menu with the 3 values I want to choose from. These values refer to the table situated directly above the drop down menu. Basically, in the end I need to calculate a 'Throughput' value which is supposed to depend on what I choose in the drop down menu.

For instance, if I choose 'Paddy' in the drop down menu, I want the corresponding bulk density and velocity values selected (same row). Similarly for the adjacent table, if I choose model 400/180 in the drop down menu, I would like the corresponding bucket capacity to be selected. I know my question is rather lengthy, but I'm sure the solution is rather concise. I just can't seem to remember or search for the solution!

Drop Down Menu Values

Jan 7, 2009

I have setup a worksheet with multiple drop down menu's, all with different available options to choose from. If I go to the 1st drop menu and select say option 2, is there a way I can assign a dollar value to option 2 so that when I select that option, it posts the dollar value next to the drop menu? Then go to the 2nd drop menu select say option 4 or whatever, and do the same with the value.

That way at the end of the list of drop menu's I have a total of what the options that I have chosen for this particular piece to have and have a running total of what it costs?

To get the drop menu's I just listed a bunch of options for question 1, then went to data, validation, list, and selected those options. Then did the same and so on for other options.

Select Macro From A Drop-down Menu

Apr 16, 2009

I have several pre-configured macros that I would like to choose from using a drop-down menu. I know this is possible within the excel built-in ribbon, but I need to have it only in the spreadsheet. The macro will be importing a csv file. I have several different csv files that I need to be able to choose from and a drop-down list seems to be the best choice. The other option could be to have the macro prompt me to select the csv file of choice. Below is a sample of the macro that I would be using. Is this possible?

With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:= _
"TEXT;P:A Harvest of HealthImportVendorsA-N.txt", Destination:=Range( _
"$N$1"))
.Name = "A-N_7"
.FieldNames = True
.RowNumbers = False

Different Controls Set Using A Drop-down Menu/combo Box?

Jul 5, 2006

I am building an excel application that will allow the users to tick boxes which acknowledge completition of tasks. I then count up all the tickboxes to give them a score. However, I want to have multiple modes, so users can have different sets of tickboxes. Ideally, I would have a drop-down menu/ combo box at the top of the page with the 4 modes in, and then when selected the appropriate tick-boxes are shown. I considered creating 4 tickboxes in every location, and just showing them (object.hide/.show) when the option was selected in the combo box. I am currently using Excel Form Tickboxes, and counting themall, but if I did this method I would need to count them for each mode. would I need an array?
