Update Automatically, Not Manually Extending The List On The 2nd Sheet

Nov 18, 2008

I have a list (external), which will be updated every month from an external source with new numbers and possibly a new size. This will be a count of services people use. On a 2nd sheet I need to allocate a cost to these services (pivotdata). This works fine if the list stays the same size, but it most probably won't so I need it to update automatically, not manually extending the list on the 2nd sheet. In brackets are the named ranges of the data in the spreadsheet.

Delete Value Of Dependent List Automatically When Mother-list Gets Manually Deleted?

Feb 8, 2013

I'm currently working with 3 dropdown lists depending on each other using data validation and =indirect(). I arranged them like in a top-down approach where you have a mother-list and child-lists (categories-->subCategories-->subCategoryCriteria). The user should easily chose first a category then a subCategory etc... This part works perfectly

My question is: when a user chose in the dropdown list e.g. a category, a subCategory and a subCategoryCriteria and he now maually deletes the value in the highest level, which is the Category (mother-list), all sub level values like subCategory and subCategoryCriteria will stay. It shouldn't be that way, because it's not logical. If you turn a tree upside-down (top-down approach) and cut one of the higher positioned trunks, all lower positioned trunks will fall off as well, right? So, my question is: can I use a conditional formatting or a formula to delete or fade out the value in the lower lists when the higher list value is being deleted?

I tried to use If-formula in combination with indirect in data validation, like =IF(A1="";("");INDIRECT(B1))...just and example.

The value doesnt need to be deleted, it could also be automatically face out like white on white or something. It's just confusing for the user if he deletes the highest choice and the lower choices still stay.

Data Validation List - Automatically Update Cells Where Used

Apr 15, 2011

On Sheet2, data validation is applied to cells D21:D70 to limit data to values to a list, which is a named range on another worksheet. There are ranges on two other worksheets with the same data validation rule. The range for the list is ‘Sheet1’!D12:D26 (which is named “Processes”).

On Sheet1, the user enters a list of their processes. Then on Sheet2 (and the other sheets where the data validation is applied), they select one of the processes from the list. This all works fine until they go back to Sheet1 and modify one of the previously entered values.

For example, "Brush Teeth" is entered as one of the processes on Sheet1. It is then selected on Sheet2. Then, the user goes back to Sheet1 and changes the value to "Brush Hair." When you return to Sheet2, the value is still "Brush Teeth." It can be manually be changed by selecting “Brush Hair” from the drop-down list (“Brush Teeth” is no longer available), but it doesn’t automatically update.

Data validation was applied to a single cell (A3) and the list was on the same worksheet (B1:B3).

Option Explicit
Private oldValue As String
Private Const DVCell As String = "A1"
Private Const dataList As String = "B1:B10"

[Code]...

'This is worksheet event code, which means that it needs to be 'placed in the appropriate worksheet code module, not a standard 'code module. To do this, right-click on the sheet tab, select 'the View Code option from the menu, and paste the code in.

On Sheet2 (I assume I need to add this code to every applicable sheet), I tried editing the first part of the code as follows (changes in bold), but when I click on any cell on Sheet2 that has the data validation rule applied, VB returns the error “Run-time error ‘1004’: Method ‘Range” of object ‘_Worksheet’ failed.” If I go into the debugger, the second instance of “If Not Intersect(Target, Range(dataList)) Is Nothing Then” is highlighted.

How To Take Data From One Sheet To Automatically Update Another Sheet

Feb 2, 2014

i have two sheets, sheet 1 is a list of some items i sell on my website and the stock quantity.sheet 2 is a list of what my supplier has in stock.i want a quick way of my stock values on sheet 1 in column G to match the stock values on sheet 2 column E.

the product codes are the same (sheet 1 is column E for product codes, on sheet 2 the codes are in column B).

on my website (sheet 1) the products size options (column J) are more detailed than that of my suppliers (sheet 2 column F)

for example, my sheet (sheet 1) will say on some items for example MEDIUM: DRESS SIZE 10-12 but my supplier sheet will just say medium also my sheet (sheet 1) will say ONE SIZE or PLUS SIZE where as my suppliers (sheet 2) will be blank however this means that there is only one stock value to update anyway as there is only one size option

is it possible to magically make sheet 1 match the relating stock values from sheet two?

so on sheet 1, item 10035 Child Gangster Suit in size small would change from 7 to 13 and item 10001 Jumbo Syringe would change from 11 to 20

i would also need the updated values on sheet 1 to be highlighted so i know if any have been missed, for example my supplier may have stopped supplying an item in medium but obviously i would still have a stock value for it on my sheet so therefore that value wouldnt be updated so i would need to be made aware of this so i can then remove the option (which has to be done manually) on my website...

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?

Manually Update Cells With Formulas And Macros

Sep 2, 2008

why I must update all cells, with formulas, manually after I do something with the workbook. I'll try to make an example.

If I make a macro that enters =sum("F1:F10") it says #NAME? when its done, but if I dubbleclick it and press enter it calculates the cell like its supposed to. I've tried to press alt + ctrl + F9, but that doesnt work.

Is there a command to dubbelclick the entire workbook and then press enter if you know what I mean?

Manually Enter % And Update Price (Formula)

Jun 9, 2009

I'd like to be able to add 10% to column D and have the prices in A, B, C change accordingly. Is there a formula for this?

A B C D
2009 Distributor CASE Price2010 Distributor CASE Price2010 Distributor EACH PriceVariance from 2009 price135.00148.000.0592108.25100.000.040062.8875.006.250066.6096.008.0000


PS: Right now I have it set up working the opposite way, the prices are entered and my formula tells the user by what % the price has changed. The user wants to be able to tell the formula what % is desired and have the prices change accordingly.

The formula I am using for the way column currently calculates is:
=IF((G2=0),"",(((G2-F2)/F2)*1))

Automatically Update Master Sheet With Information From Other Excel Sheets?

May 16, 2014

So, I'm setting up an accounting book. There's a master sheet that needs to pull from the other sheets that are made. The problem is, with each new sheet that is made, I have to update the formulas on the master. I would like that if I made a new sheet, the master would automatically pull from it.

Example:

Master pulls renter fee info from May 3rd, May 7th

I create sheet (May 15th)

Master pulls renter info from May 3rd, May 7th, May 15th

Automatically Update Only With Numbers (ifnumber-update And Go To Next Cell)

Oct 18, 2013

Let's say that in column A I have numbers,"Yes" and "No". I want in column B to have only the numbers from column A, in the same order without any empty ranges, and everytime I add in column A a new number, column B to update automatically with that number. Let's have an example:

A B
Yes 12
12 13
No 10
13
No
10
Yes

And if I want to add in column A:
A B
Yes 12
12 13
No 10
13 25
No 15
10
Yes
25
15

So the column be will update automatically. I already tried =IFERROR(INDEX($A$1:$A$10,SMALL(IF(ISNUMBER($A$1:$A$10),ROW($A$1:$A$10)),ROWS(B$1:B1))-ROW($A$1)+1),") but using this many times get's my file very heavy and the excel is working slow.

Autofill; Copy Down It Doesnt Automatically Update The Cell References Because It Want To Update Them By Column Number Instead Of Row Number

Dec 11, 2008

I have a basic formula =C17+'Asset Depreciation 2008 Onwards'!C24, and I want to copy it down just using the drag function. Problem is that the second reference range of cells are in rows and hence when I copy it down it doesnt automatically update the cell references because it want to update them by column number instead of row number. IE I want it to display =C17+'Asset Depreciation 2008 Onwards'!
D24, instead of C25. Do you know if there is any way of telling Excel that I want it to increase the column number by 1 every time, instead of the row number for this part of the formula?

Dropdown List And Transferring Data To Another Sheet Automatically

Dec 27, 2012

it has been eye opening to say the least. I have a question however, I am in the process of creating a workbook of different things for my construction company and I am stuck. Is there a way that I can pull a cost code from a drop down and have whatever data is inputted into the cell to the right automatically transfered to a budget report (another sheet)? Example - Inputting time for my crews - select a code from the drop down list say for "concrete" Then I input the crews hours per day in subsequent columns and then sum it up at the final column. Can the sum of the hours worked doing "concrete" then automatically be transposed to the budget in the "concrete" section?

Single Cell Value From Either Dropdown List Or Enter Manually Depending On Selection

Jun 22, 2014

I have a cell in my spreadsheet that I use to control the size of a column. I formatted the cell as a number and added data validation to make sure the number is greater than zero. Then I realized that I need to also allow for the option of auto sizing the column as well. This would require a data validation list type with something like True and False for the choices.

What I want to be able to do is have it both ways. I want a drop down list in that cell with the options Auto Size or Custom. If Auto Size is selected the cell value gets set to that. If Custom is selected I then want to be able to type in a number.

[URL]

Is there a way to setup a cell such that the value is either an item from the drop down list or, entered directly (depending on the list selection)?

I know I can do it with dependent lists but that would require two cells, one for the auto size mode (true/false) and the other for manual width value.

VBA Code To Populate A Cell Automatically Whenever Another Cell Is Filled In Manually?

Mar 29, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with 6 hidden columns (B to G). Rows 1 to 14 are frozen and have data that comes from another work book and these rows will be protected. The user will enter data from H14 to U14 and then H15 to U15 for the next row and so on down the sheet. The number of rows of data over a week is variable, a minimum of 21 rows (3 per day) but no maximum.

When the user starts entering new data in the column range H to U I would like to automatically populate the 6 hidden cells on that row with information from particular cells in protected rows 1 to 14. For example B14 would populate with the value from I4, C14 would populate with the value from I5, D14 from I6, E14 from I7 and so on whenever someone enters a value anywhere from H14 through to U14.

I can understand that a worksheet change event would be useful to do this but I guess then it wouldn't want to run every time each cell is populated so I think if it had to activate on a single cell change then the cell in column L would be best. Also, as I understand it, there can be only one block of code per sheet that operates on a worksheet change event, have I got that right? If that is the case then I assume all the code to populate the hidden cells on each row will need to be in this block of code.

Move Data From Multiple Worksheets To Single Sheet Without Manually Entering Each Cell Id

I have a number of worksheets and need to move data from the same cells of each work sheet to a summary worksheet. I manually entered the cell id's for the first sheet.

Example =Jan!M6, =Jan!N7, =Jan!O9 etc.

I know I should be able to automatically enter these same cells for the remainder of my worksheets with out manually going in and typing each one (there are a lot of entries.) I just can not remember how to do it. The next sheet is named "Feb" and "Mar" etc.

Add Data Monthly And Then Have To Manually Update The "source Data" To Reflect The Added Data On Chart

Apr 28, 2009

I have a column line chart to which I add data monthly and then have to manually update the "source data" to reflect the added data on chart. This is a rolling graph, which mean that I have to remove data for one month(from last year) and then include the new month's data. Is there any way on automating this process...like a macro or something, so once I add the data excel automatically removes one month of old data and make changes to include fresh data. Eg Currently chart is based on data from A2:F2 and I add new data to cell G2. I need something which automatically update the source data to cell B2:G2.

How To Automatically Update The Month Name

Apr 14, 2014

We have a worksheet that contains twelve different charts. Once a month, we load data into anotheer worksheet and run a macro and it produces the twelve charts. The problem is that we have to manually update/change the month name in each chart title every time we run the macro to produce the charts. Is there a way to automatically update the month name so that we do not have to manually do it? For example, the current chart title is "xxxxxx - March 2014"....when we run the charts for April, we have to manually change March to April in each of the charts. Can this be done automatically?

Do Not Want Cells To Update Automatically

Jul 7, 2009

This what my excel sheet looks like that i am using the date ant time cell is set by using the now formula to get the current date and time, but I only want the date tiem change for each row when it changes.

For example when the data for the first row changes all the dates and time change, but I only want the effected rows time to change not all the times and dates, this progam is set up to monitor inventory and when some makes a change to the inventory I need to now when the that data was recorded but do not want the users to have to enter the data and want it to be enter automatically that is why i am using the now function. The data may not change at all for a couple days that why I need to be able to keep the Date data from changing automatically.

Automatically Update The Values.

I have a worksheet with a cell that references another cell.
Cell A1 references cell B1, and the value of cell A1 is "=B1"

When I type anything in B1, A1 won't automatically update to reflect what I've typed. The only way I can get it to update on the fly is to save the workbook. Even when I close the workbook and reopen it, it still won't update to what I've typed in B1. Is there a setting that keeps it from autoupdating?

Adding Up And Update Automatically

I require a total amount of 'cost price' items we have in stock.

As you can see from sheet 1, 'Adidas', the total is 43.00. However that is not the cost of stock, as some items are not in stock, as per Column I. (The cost is actually 36.00).

How can I make a total to include just items in stock? Bear in mind new stock is inserted between others in order of Model so the forumale would need to update automatically, and there are several hundred sheets, not just 2.

Links Do Not Automatically Update

Sep 11, 2013

I have a dashboard (CW Dashboard.xlsx) that is linked to 3 main spreadsheets. In each main spreadsheet, there are 5 tabs. One tab contains raw data, the other 4 tabs contain tables: 2 tabs with formulas based on the raw data tab, and 2 tabs linked to 20 other spreadsheets (for now). I separated the raw data into 3 spreadsheets because Excel was calculating way slower than my patience would tolerate. All spreadsheets are Excel 2010. All spreadsheets reside on our network drive.

The links update as expected on the 2 tabs that are linked to the 20 different spreadsheets in each of the three main spreadsheets.The CW Dashboard does not update. I get #REF! in each cell (although when I click in the cell, the link shows no error). I am using VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP in this spreadsheet. I can of course open the source documents from within the Dashboard and the links then work as expected. However, I would prefer the eventual users of the Dashboard not have to open 4 s'sheets.

Automatically Update To New Version?

Sep 25, 2009

I have an excel based appliction that I distribute to about 150 people in the US, London, Hong Kong and Singapore. Distribution is currently done by email containing a link to a Sharepoint site (the email has the link, release notes, etc). The end users open the file and save it to their desktops, overwritting the previous version. I'm finding that many users are not updating their versions as they should be.

So what I'm wondering is if there's a way to have this process automated - so that when the user opens the file, it checks a repository (sharepoint or otherwise) for a more current version, then prompts the user to download it.
