Restrictions On Drop Down List If Cell Is 'a' Then Other Cell Must Equal 'b'

Jul 15, 2009

I have two cells, both of which have drop down lists for options 'a' & 'b'. When one equals 'a' the other should be restricted into only saying 'b' and vice versa. I would also like the user to be reminded that he can only select 'a' once from the two menus. Ideally I would like to do this in a formula rather than VBA?

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.

Conditional Formatting - Highlight Cell With Value If Equal Value In List

Oct 15, 2012

I have 3 rows with numbers across several columns, each cell holding one number only. For example:

R1: 1101 - 1102 - 1103 - 1104 - etc.
R2: 2101 - 2102 - 2103 - 2104 - etc.
R3: 3101 - 3102 - 3103 - 3104 - etc.

A little further down I am having a list where the end user will write down the exact same number. Once the same number has been written into the list, I would like the number shown in the top rows (row 1 to 3) to be highlighted in green, basically telling the user that the number has been entered into the list below and is ok now.

How can I manage this via conditional formatting?

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.

Count If A Cell Is Equal To Cell In Different Spreadsheet And Is Less Or Equal Zero

Apr 17, 2014

How to correct my formula because it does not work?

Here the formula: =COUNTIFS(Data!C2:C24005,A17,Data!M2:M11149,"<=0")

I need to insert the formula in column C (Findings tab) which counts the rows in Column M (tab named "Data") that equal A17 (Column A in "Findings" tab) and which are less or equal zero. In addition if I drag the formula down I want to only the values be entered in highlighted in blue cells in column C (SKUs With Zero Sales in "Findings" tab) and empty cells in not highlighted cells. I attached images of these two tabs: Data and Findings.

Using Drop Down List As Selection Criteria For The Next Cell

May 31, 2008

One worksheet will have a library of job elements for assembly process with standard times on it.For example:Pick up a bolt(0.621m),install gasket(0.231m) etc.
The main worksheet will have a dropdown list which will list all the job elements discussed above.It will also have the quantity.So in otherwords,to pick up one bolt the time would be 0.621 minutes.But if anyone picks up 4 bolts the time would be 2.115 minutes,which can be calculated by the formula.So I want to display the job element,qty and the time in three separate rows.This worksheet will also calculate the total time for the assembly of the components which might contain more than thousand job elements.
My question is how do I ensure that picking up any of these job elements will give me the correct time.Is this something that can be done by formulas or anything thats built in excel or I need to run a macro or VBA to run some codes for IF...ELSE....THEN statements.There are too many conditions like If pick up one bolt time is 0.621 minutes,if pick up 4 bolts time is 2.115 minutes or if pick up a gasket time is 0.231 minutes.

Drop Down List Based On Cell Content

I'm trying to find a macro that will allow me to enable several drop down lists in the same cell based on the content of another cell. In other words:

If cell A1 is the data entry cell, and the user enters "cat"
Then cell B1 will display a drop down list of previously grouped options: "mouse, bug, bird"

If in cell A1 the user enters "dog"
Then cell B1 will display a different list of previously grouped options: "mole, rabbit, kibble"

Return Value Based On Selection Chosen From Drop-down List In Cell Next To It

The value in Column I should change as soon as the value in Column H changes.

I'm assuming offset is the best option?

VB To Activate List Drop Down Boxes When Data Is Entered In A Cell

May 20, 2009

I have a Validation drop down box (column B) and a defined range drop down box (column E linked to the Totals tab with A2-A31 defined as Products) that I need to activate everytime data is added to a new line in column 'A' and cells in column 'B' or 'E' are selected. Additionally, they need to activate if the cells in column 'B' or 'E' are selected for any of the old data so changes can be made. This will help reduce the overall file size and calculation time for a year's worth of data.

There is already some code on the worksheet that looks like it can be adapted if someone knows how to code in the drop down boxes.

Automatically Update A Selection In A Drop Down List From A Cell Value Change

Jul 31, 2008

I have two worksheets...

Sheet 1
A1: description
A2: Target Iteration
A3: Concat A1, A2.

Sheet 2.
A1: Drop down datavalidation list selected from A3, sheet 1.

On sheet 2, a user can select from the list. If a user changes the value in A2, sheet 1, I want the value that is associated and already selected in A1, sheet 2 to automatically update. There is a 1 to many relationship with the concat and the drop down. In that, sheet 2 can have multiple rows with the same value from sheet 1 A3. Is there a way when A3 sheet 1 changes, to search in A:A in sheet two and update the values for those records that match the original value in A3, sheet 1?

Return Cell On Separate Sheet Based On Selection From Drop Down List?

Mar 18, 2014

I am trying to create individualized worksheets based off a master worksheet. I have different committee names that I want to appear on the individualized sheets, based on whether the person is apart of that committee or not.

For example, I want A1 on Master to show on Name 1, B3 and A10 on Master to show on Name 1, C3. Can I write a formula to achieve this or or am I asking too much?

VBA - Delete Column If Cell Value Of Range Is Equal To Another Cell

Nov 5, 2013

I would like to create a VBA code where it will delete the entire column if the cell value is equal to value in D2

For example:

Sub Delete_Columns()
Dim rng As Range, cell As Range, del As Range
Set rng = Intersect(Range("G2:S43"), ActiveSheet.UsedRange)

For Each cell In rng
If (cell.Value) = D2 _
Then
If del Is Nothing Then
Set del = cell
Else: Set del = Union(del, cell)
End If
End If
Next cell
On Error Resume Next
del.EntireColumn.Delete
End Sub

======

But I think this line is wrong but I am not sure how to fix it - If (cell.Value) = D2 _

Making 1 Cell Equal Another Cell Including Its Comment?

May 18, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with some cells which return values using INDEX and MATCH to bring back the entire details of a person based on there membership number. However I require the comments to be attached with the returned values. The comments have there image in, rather than just text.

I have found some answers with vba, which do the process, however you had to manually enter the cell, from which the comment was to be copied from, into a pop up box. This involved finding the box myself to then select the box to take the comment from. In doing this I had found and read the comment, which is the is the process I'm trying to bypass.
