Named List: Data Validation To Restrict The User To Only Selecting Values In A List

Jun 15, 2007

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.

Excel 2007 :: Data Validation List Depend On Another DV List

Apr 29, 2012

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

=IF(C1=A1,OFFSET(A2,,,COUNTA($A$2:$A$5),1),0)

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)

Data Validation Used To Create Separate Data Validation List

Feb 15, 2014

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

First Name
Surname

Paul
Smith

Paul
Jones

Tony

Created Validation Drop-down List - Can I Make The Row Now Change To The Colour That Relates To The Selection From The List

Jan 13, 2009

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

etc.

Is this possible within Excel 2003?

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.

Validation List: Wide As Widest List Item

Oct 28, 2006

I am trying to make some of my data validation dropdown list boxes narrower. I was told one way to do that is to use combo boxes. (If there are any other ways, please let me know!)

I don't think my combo boxes are working. I had tried to make a combo box appear in each data validation pulldown cell by using this tutorial:

http://www.contextures.com/xlDataVal10.html

I followed this tutorial word for word, but when I try to test the code at the end by double-clicking on a data validation pulldown cell, no combo box appears.

List Data Validation

Mar 18, 2009

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.

Data Validation - List Box

Sep 9, 2009

Hello, could some one please help me with the following:

I have created a drop-down list for the range : C3:C65000 using Excel 2003 and Windows XP Pro. I did this using Excel's Data Validation Tool. The settings I used are as follows:

Allow: List
Source: =GROUPS
Check Box Ignore Blank is Ticked
Check Box In-cell dropdown is Ticked

GROUPS = GROUPS!$A$2:$A$29

Now all this works well, such that when I click in the cell range : C3:C65000, then a dropdown list appears - showing a list of all my groups.

However, when I click on any of the dropdown lists in this range, the width of the dropdown list is only as wide as the column. Column C has a width of 20.

What I need please is for the dropdown list to be as wide as the list of information showing in the dropdown list. If some one could please explain on how I can achieve this - that would be great.

Data Validation From A List

Aug 29, 2008

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.

Too Much IF In Data Validation List Source

Apr 8, 2014

I try to find a solution (with or without macro) to assign different ranges named "Failure_C..." in a data validation source depending on the value of another data validation list (32 values called)

I started in the Data Validation List Source to fill in IF function but 32 inputs are not accepted and too much caracters in the source.

The formula is starting like that:

=IF(A57=$M$78,Failure_C01,IF(A57=$M$79,Failure_C02,IF(A57=$M$80,Failure_C03,
IF(A57=$M$81,Failure_C04,IF(A57=$M$82,Failure_C05,
IF(A57=$M$83,Failure_C06,IF(A57=$M$84,Failure_C07............

Data Validation And List With Formula?

Jun 29, 2014

I am trying to make a simple planning sheet.

I have a workbook with 2 sheets.

1.sheet contains Columns : DayDateTimeClassTeacherCovered

2. sheet contains the availability of teachers. so all columns start with a date and the rows contain the name.

A row therefore looks like this.

7/1
Harley

Lidia
Livia
Thais
Salete
Carla

My issue: The 1.sheet has a column Teacher, now in this column I want to have a drop down list. (E2, E3, E4, E5 ... etc..) This list is depended on the date which is in column B.

Essentially I want the list to look up date in its row go to the second sheet and give me all the possible names in it. That is all.

Dropdown List Using Data Validation

Feb 25, 2014

I have a list on one worksheet and I use a dropdown list from Data Validation to select the name required.

My list is so long that I would like to be able to type a letter or two to access to the name quicker instead of scrolling down.

I copied a formula that worked for someone else that put this formula in the data validation

(IF(I36<>"",OFFSET(Player,MATCH(I36&"*",Player,0)-1,,SUMPRODUCT((MID(Player,1,LEN(I36))=TEXT(I36,"0"))*1)),Player))

I do not wish to use VBA is possible.

Creating A Data Validation List

Feb 19, 2010

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

Dropdown Data Validation List

Mar 6, 2013

I have a query with data validation.....

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.

Sum Items From Data Validation List?

Jan 6, 2012

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.

=COUNTIF(D2:BA2,"*REQ*")*SUM(D2:BA2)

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.
