I'm trying to use data validation to restrict the user to only selecting values in a list which I create. Right now, the list is a named range. I'd like to get rid of the range and just use a named list. I create a name using the following as my list.
Insert > Name > Create Name: Fruit
Refers to: banana,apple,orange
When I try to use the name Fruit in my data validation, I get the message "The List Source must be a delimited list, or a reference to single row or column." I thought my name "fruit" was a delimited list.
I have a List of Different Fruits in Cells A1 to A5
Apple Banana Orange Strawberry Cherry
And I use data validation list in 5 different cells from Cells C1 to C5 then in every cell the list will show all the fruits,
But I want that if I select Any Fruit in cell C1 that should not be included in the remaining 4 cells, and the fruits selected in Cells C1 and Cell C2 should not be included in the remaining 3 cells and so on....
I Used the formula
But this works fine if I select Apple in the Cell C1, then the List of C2 Shows all Fruits other than Apple, But if in Cell C1 I select any fruit other than Apple it does not work... (Using Excel2007 & Win XP)
I have 2 columns First Name & Surname. What I want to do is create a data validation list on the surname which results in the 2nd data validation list only showing the first names which link to one of the surnames.
i.e. If I selected Smith in the 1st validation list then I would only like to see 'Paul' as an option in the 2nd list
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
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.
I would like to exclude blanks from the source of a validation list, I have found a really neat solution for vertical list in this topic, I have modified it, but I have missed something, the formula is not working.
i mtrying to get a validation list change depending on what is chosen in another list. I have attached an example, Yellow box is my validation and weather List 1 or List 2 in chosen I want the red box to be a choose of the list attached to those options. I've tried to put an If in there but Iím al a loss.
The idea is to create a liquor order sheet which takes items and prices from a liquor inventory workbook, which is part of the same file. i'm sure that you can do it all fancy with a macro, but unfortunately i'm not super experienced with excel. so i helped myself with what i know a bit -> drop down lists. I created an extra sheet which has 4 ranges on there... the liquor type (liquor, beer, wine), and the 3 sub classes for each type (red/white/blush/sparkling for wine, draft/import for beer and so on and so forth). On the inventory i named the range of all white wines "white", of all red wines "red" ..
On my order sheet i created a drop down list for type and created 2 more via "indirect" .. so when you select "wine" in the first one, the 2nd one will ask you for white/red/blush/sparkling and the last drop down then for the exact item according to the range on the inventory.
Hope what i did so far is understandable ^.^
Now my problem is that i want the unit cost to be copied when an item is selected. So you select "beer" in A1, "import" in A2, "corona" in A3... and the price for corona (which is written in a cell on the inventory sheet) should show up in A4.
I attached a screen of the inventory sheet so that you can see how it is structured.
I have a workbook that uses data validation from a list. The same list is used in several of the individual sheets. Can one use just one list for different sheets, as I'm having to create separate list for each sheet, which when an overall change needs to be made it is easy to miss one.
I have a cell "project titles" entered in sheet1 that populates into sheet 2 - column "Project titles".
I need to keep the values in this column unique. So can I create a data validation such a way that I won't be able to enter values into this cell that are already on the list. This way I can avoid entering duplicates.
I am trying to create a data validation list with a bar graph. I have tried using the IF and Vlookup formula, but its not working for me. I would like to be able to select classroom # from the drop down menu and the bar graph update selected with studentís name and selected data information. I have attached the file.
I am trying to set the below table up as a validation list. I am having issues with putting it in as list as it creates a new line every time a ď,Ē (comma) occurs. I know I can use the custom and pull the list from a table, but I canít use this option (the reason I canít use the table, if interested, is because the single sheet with the validation contains about ~35,000 line items that are being split up into ~200 different sheets. Each sheet is then sent as a separate emailÖthe problem with using the table is that it would on a different spreadsheet to begin with. The email only sends one sheet. As such, it would no longer be able to reference the table).
A - Less than $25,000 B - Between $25,000 and $49,999 C - Between $50,000 and $99,999 D - Between $100,000 and $249,999 E - Between $250,000 and $499,999 F - Between $500,000 and $999,999 G - Over $1,000,000
Workbook1 contains validated list which is defined by a Range name and also its data is pulled from workbook2. I am unable to change the value of the validated list from drop down when i close workbook2, infact the validation drop down list do not drop at all so that can select values from it. But if i open the workbook2 i am able to change the values of the validation list.
I want the dropdown list to be active when i close the second workbook.
Can I have a cell rage.. say A2:E20...and every cell in it has a drop down data validation list, from data inputted into L2:L27 (For examples lets say L2 is A, L3 is B, L4 is C, L5 is D and so on).
if somewhere in the range A2:E20, say B6 I was to select D from the drop down list, I want the remainder of the cells in range A2:E20, to have the drop down list without the value D in it, and so on, so the more cells in the range I fill from the list, the list for empty cells gets smaller and smaller until there are none left.
I was wondering if there is a way to see all the choices on a drop list. Currently the drop list only shows 8 choices but I am wanting to see all 32 choices eliminating the need to scroll the list. I have attached a picture.
I have created data validation list which has 3 flags (Yes, No and Blank). Normally the user will select either Yes or No from column C but i want each time there is no value in either row A or B; i want the code to automatically to select Blank. So basically every time row A or B are blank i want the corresponding row C to be selected "Blank". See attached for more details.
I'm attempting to get the sum for an entire row when one particular option is selected from a data list. I'd like to get a numerical total for each cell in the row that has "REQ" selected from the list.
The range of cells that could contain "REQ" are D2:BA2. I'd like the total number of "REQ"s to be listed in A2. And the source for "REQ" is BB2.
This doesn't give me an error but the value remains at 0 in A2 when some cells do have "REQ" selected.
I came across these two threads but I still couldn't get it going.
Sum items from Data Validation list Sum a range if a cell contains a text string
Is it possible to set up a cell to either return a vlookup result or allow a specific data validation list? For example, if precedent cell is blank, then I want to perform a vlookup and return result, but if not, then only allow a choice from an unrelated list.
