How To Create New Workbooks Based On Validation List

Feb 22, 2012

Every two weeks: During Payroll, we have a list of managers and specific employees under that manager.

The managers name is in Column A and they repeat.

Normally we filter that manager, copy and paste the data into a new Workbook, save it, and send the info out to that manager. We do not want other managers to see the information provided to the specific manager.

This is a long tedious process as there are close to 30 managers.

1. Is there a way to run a macro (presumably based on a validation list) to filter, copy the worksheet into a new workbook for each of the 30+ managers?

2. Is there a way to save each with a specific name like "Payroll Feb11 - Manager Name.xlsx"

Create Multiple Workbooks With Names Based On List

Sep 2, 2007

I have some very tedious work to do in Excel:

table looks like following:
DepID name function
S1 a YY
S1 b XX
S1 c ww
S2 d oo
S3 e ii
S3 f ll
S4 t mm
. . . . . .. . . .
. . . . . .. . . .
. . . . . .. . . .

S7999 u ee
S7999 w aa

My task is to create new folders for each department according to DepID, which means if there are 7999 departments, I have to create 7999 folders, any VBA code can do this?

Data Validation To Create Dropdown List

Sep 12, 2012

I am in the process of creating a database, and have used 'Data Validation' to create drop down lists in order to obtain information quickly from the database.

I have encountered an issue where if I have a list the resembles the one shown below, the drop down list will show spaces.

This is particularly an issue for myself and my database because there is over 1,000 items in the list, and there are countless empty cells within the list. I have tried sorting the list, BUT because the database is quite large, sorting it will disrupt other functions of the database.

Ideally, I would like the drop down list to show only entries within the list that are not empty so the drop down list is entirely relevant, and more user friendly.

Create Data Validation List From Previous Selection?

Nov 15, 2011

I have a large set of data that I need to use for data validation in drop down lists. The data is arranged in 4 columns and entries within each column may repeat numerous times. The four columns are as this..

Category Subcategory 1 Subcategory2 Subcategory3

The first data validation will come from the first column. Once this is chosen the second drop down should populate with the subcategory that correspond to that category stored in column 2. once that is chosen the thrid data validation should populate with the corresponding subcategory from column three etc.. This is a small sample of the data in the columns.

Create Range List Code For Data Validation

Sep 29, 2007

I am using following code to apply data validation list. However this code gives error Intermittently. The error message is 'Application defined or Object defined error'. Also this code looks little cumber some. Will really apprciate if any one can put some ligh on why is this error appearing sometimes. Do I need to change something in the code or add few extra lines. I feel following points will be necessary when you check my code

1. The data of validation list is stored under the column heading 'Reported_By_List'
2. Validation is applied on the range under the column heading 'Reported Through'
3. Start and last Cell Address Of the cells of the column in which data of validation list is
stored are extracted into the variables 'StartCellAddress1' & 'LastCellAddress1 '
4. Start and last Cell Address Of the cells of the column on which data validation will be
applied are stored are extracted into the variables 'StartCellAddress2' &

Sub Validation1()

Dim wsName As String
Dim RValue As String
Dim WorkBookName As String
Dim StartRow As Integer
Dim StartColumn As Integer
Dim LastRow As Integer
Dim CellAddress As String
Dim ColumnAddress As String
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
WorkBookName = ThisWorkbook.Name
wsName = ActiveSheet.Name...........

Validation List Based On Named Range Not Restricted To List

Dec 15, 2007

I am attempting to use a named range as my Validation data source but have two questions:

1) It seems when you use a named range as a source the user can enter in any data they want in that cell. I really only want the user restricted to the list I give them. If I enter the list manually in the source box then it works but I really want to use a named range

2) My range is fixed to 10 cells and the user can enter in as many variables as they want (up to ten). When a user clicks on one of the cells that the validation is set to read the range the user has to always scroll to get to the top. When selecting the cell Ecel always defaults to the bottom choice in the list. I want to minimize the VBA because Mac users will be using this and VBA seems to be touchy with macs.

The number of workbooks I need is not fixed. It all depends on how many names are in column C.

Macro To Create Multiple Workbooks Based On Data

Jul 31, 2013

I have a worksheet with the following columns:



This is a relatively long list - 1000's. What I'd like to do is create a macro that sorts by brand, and at every change in Brand, copy the user details (Username, firstname, lastname, email) to another workbook with those labels at the top of the table. Upon completion, it saves the workbook with the name of the appropriate brand.

E.g. I'd have 3 workbooks:
- BrandA.xlsx - with the 2 user listed
- BrandB.xlsx - with the 1 user listed
- BrandC.xlsx - with the 1 user listed

The attached file (a copy of my main one) has a list of our engineers, and what stock they carry. The stock parts are the 64, 65, 66... numbers.

I need to create a list from this (as underneath the main table), for all instances where there is a 'Y' in the columns next to each engineer. So if an engineer has 3x pieces of stock, they need to appear in the list 3x times. If they have 1x piece of stock, they appear in the list once.

Data Validation List Based Off Cell Value

Apr 25, 2014

I'm trying to have a Data Validation list issue where I want to populate a second list based upon the value of the first list.

In this instance I have a Department in the drop down and Employee Name in the second drop down and I want people to only see Employee names if they're allocated to a particular Department. I've been able to do the list using the INDIRECT function, however that only works when there's only a small sample of both names & depts, however I'm looking at populating this document with around 3000 people and over 250 departments, so I would like to be able to use Column J on the Source Tab to populate the details on the Manager Entry tab.

I have attached a sample spreadsheet if I've not explained very clearly.

Update A Validation List Based On Value Of Another Cell

Mar 5, 2009

In sheet 1, there are two columns, Category and Subgroup. The cell validation for Category is pulled from the category list on sheet 2. Basically, what I want to happen is depending on what is selected as the category, only the related sub-groups would be populated in the sub-group validation dropdown list. In other words, if Fruit is selected as the category, I only want Apple, Orange, Pear, Banana, etc to be in the validation drop down list for the sub group. If vegetable, then only Corn, Green Bean, Cucumber, and Peas should be shown.

I've included two options for the relationship list as I'm not tied to either style and not sure which would be easier to work with.

Return Value Based On Validation List Choice

Nov 14, 2006

I have created a cascading data validation list, and I would like to have an adjacent cell auto populate according to the dropdown selection.

Data Eg:

Oranges 1100
Apples 1101
Pears 1102
Grapes 1103

If the user selects "Pears" from the dropdown list, I would like the adjacent cell to populate with the numerical code for "pears", in this case 1102. I am designing a new expense report form at the office, and I am at a standstill with this problem.

Run Macro Based On Validation List Choice

Sep 3, 2007

I'm looking for a method, vba macro or Excel code, to preform the following task:
In the C column the user chooses one of several options from a menu, let's call these options 1 - 10 (this part is already done). Depending on the choise, different things are supposed to happen:

For 1-9, the formulas for cell A - Q on the current row should be copied to the next row (but with +1 in row number in formulas of course).

For 10, 3 blank rows should be created (well they already are blank..), on the forth row down, A3 - Q3 should be copied exactly. On the fifth row, the same formulas thing that was created for choise 1-9 should be created.

Since the real xls-file is too big already and it contains some sensitive information, I can't attach it here, but I made a small and similar xls-file, that better explain what I want to do.
