## Excel 2007 :: How To Combine Info From Columns Into 1 List

Oct 4, 2011

## Dropdown List Created From 2 Columns Of Info?

Mar 24, 2014

I have a list of names in column B, I can easily put this into a list

I also have a different list of names in Column C

These two list are feeding from sharepoint and are updated regularly

What I want to do is create a drop down list that will list all the names in Column B and Column C, while keeping the initial lists in there separate columns

I have been trying to find a formula to lookup both columns and return all the names into another column (E) using the formula below

=IFERROR(INDEX(\$B\$2:\$C\$600,MOD(ROWS(E\$2:E2)-1,ROWS(\$B\$2:\$C\$600))+1,INT((ROWS(E\$2:E2)-1)/ROWS(\$B\$2:\$C\$600))+1),"")

the plan been to just put column E into my drop down list, but this formula is returning alot of blanks between Column B + C in the list (there might be 100 names in column B and only 30 in column C)

To try remove the blanks I tried another formula pulling the info into Column F,

=IFERROR(INDEX(\$E\$2:\$E\$5000,AGGREGATE(15,6,(ROW(\$E\$2:\$E\$5000)-ROW(\$E\$2)+1)/(\$E\$2:\$E\$5000<>""),ROWS(F\$2:F2))),"")

But while this did remove the blanks (about 500 blanks) it left me with about 70 "0" errors.

## Combine Rows With Similar Info In Dropdown Menu Or Selection For User

Nov 29, 2012

I have a spreadsheet that has a long list of charges... some of those charges have multiple codes attached to them... when this happens I am wanting to group them together and let the user pick which one they want to view at one time.

Here is a very small example of what exactly I am referring to... with charge #14 I am wanting it to combine and let the user pick between 2565 and 2566. The problem is that the values can range and will not always be 2565 & 2566 and there is 10,000 + records similar to this.

## Feeding Dropdown List Results Into Different Spreadsheet

Jun 25, 2014

I have to create a series of drop down lists with choices on it for people at the company to fill out to see how much time they spent on each type of project. The plan is to have people fill out a "daily form" to see how much work they did that day, and have the results of that feed into a "monthly form" to sum up how much they worked that week. One of the aforementioned drop-down lists have them choose between three categories of work, M, N and B.

I have to make it so that in the monthly form, the results from the daily form segregate themselves into the different M, N and B tables in the monthly sheet. To make it more clear, on the daily sheet, there is just one huge table. For each row, they are to input what type of work they did, how long they worked, etc. On the monthly data table there are three different tables, one for M, one for N, and one for B. I want to have the entries from the daily spreadsheet to feed themselves into one of the three tables in the monthly spreadsheet depending on whether M, N or B was chosen.

## Creating A Dropdown List Using Matching Data From 2 Columns To Populate The List

Jun 11, 2013

I'm creating a spreadsheet to keep track of my costs of production in an online game. Within the game there are a range of spawned resources that appear for only a short time before being unobtainable these resources have specific types that is shared between multiple spawns of the resource but each resource spawn has a unique name.

My first worksheet lists all the resources and their various qualities and the later worksheets are meant to allow me to choose from a list resources matching the requirements of the item I'm looking to craft. The example i have shown in the second picture requires Tatooinian Fiberplast and Lokian Wild Wheat to craft so in the Chosen Resource column I would like to have a drop down list allowing me to select the named resource type i would like to use - for Tatooinian Fiberplast the only thing on the list should be Omnitwixi and for the Wild Wheat it should show Fizi and Krad

## Calling Multiple Columns / Rows From Dropdown List

Feb 4, 2013

I have a drop down list, using data validation, calling from a range name on a different sheet(\$1). Works great. I see my list of choices.

What I want to do next is for another named range on another sheet(\$2) to be called when I select one of the options from the drop down.

So say the drop down is in I71, when I pick an option from that list it will populate (B72, B73:G73, B74:G74...etc...) from a named range I have already defined on (\$2).

Where would I put the (if I71=Range1, then paste this info into the (B72, B73:G73, B74:G74...etc...) on \$1 ?

## Creating Dropdown List That Returns Defined Numerous Columns Of Data

[Code] .......

We use excel for scheduling purposes and each and every day we fill out a floor chart with who is working that day. As it stands now we have to print out a template and hand write all names or type them in and print it out. What I would like to try and do is define each set of names and allow for easy access to auto fill these names. I feel it needs to be a simple process as not all of our managers experienced in excel or formulas. What I would like to try an accomplish is in sheet 1 cell A1 to be able to create a drop list or formula that that would let me return all the names for a given day.

For the purposes of this discussion we can just define each list as the day that is the header ( IE A2:A4 on sheet 2 would be defined as "monday". Also, I already have the names autofilled based off of what the our schedule has. I'm curious if I could create a drop down list with each day of the week as an option, and if they select Tuesday it will then return all the names defined as Tuesday in a column below.And the next day be able to return Wednesday names and so on.

I'm not stuck on it being a drop down list. Maybe if they could just type and =(defined name) in the box above and it would return all the names.

I have tried an =(defined name) and it does return the value but only for the first cell and it has to be in the same row for it to return the name. Which doesn't work because I would like the names that are being defined on a separate sheet.

## Hide / Unhide Columns In Multiple Worksheets Based On Item Chosen In Dropdown List?

Feb 26, 2014

I am hoping to create a drop down list of months in one sheet, and when I select a certain month, columns in about 10 other worksheets in the same workbook will either hide or unhide columns...

The spreadsheet is laid out with columns (C-N) for each month in the year, for actuals, then columns for budget and budget variance (O-P), then YTD Actual, YTD Budget and YTD Variance. When I select September, for example, I want October-December to hide, and leave Jan-Sep unhidden, while keeping the budget, YTD and variance columns.

Is there a VBA code that can achieve this?

## Combine Two Macros For Dropdown Boxes

Feb 25, 2014

I have a spreadsheet I use to track reprimands for our employees. Reprimand Counseling Spreadsheet Example.xlsm. Previously, I had to read the entire reprimand in order to determine the policy violation(s) and then manually enter those reasons into the cell. We have a new standardized form, where the manger selects the reason(s) for the reprimand. I wanted a drop down box that I could select multiple reasons for the reprimand and have all the reasons appear on the same line, as well as being able to remove a reason from the line by selecting it again (so I wouldn't have to start over, in case I selected the wrong reason). I was able to find this code, on [URL] .... to accomplish that.

I also need to be able to manual edit some of the reasons. For example "Missed Meal Period(s) #___". I will need to be able to edit that item to read "Missed Meal Period(s) #2". I was able to find this code, on the same website as the previous code, to accomplish that. However, this code includes a line break, which I do not want.

Edit Same Cell

[Code] .....

Since I need the code to work on each worksheet (CIVI - SOCR), will I have to enter the code on each worksheet or is there a better way to accomplish this? Is there a way to combine these two codes, while simultaneously removing the line break? I need to select multiple reprimand reasons in the same cell and edit the reasons, if necessary. I've read and reread that article for hours, but I can't get it to work.

I am trying to set up a spreadsheet with linked dynamic drop down lists, based on a table.Using the OFFSET function, I have managed to get this to work if the table is on the SAME sheet at the drop down lists.

I don't want to use the 'name based on the previous column' idea, as the table is large and will change weekly. the drop downs show all values, even duplicates, which I would like to get rid of.
