I just want to create a combo box that will allow my manager --- not so good at using menu commands or the scenario manager --- to choose one of five different budget scenarios. I can't seem to get the actual scenarios to change when the selection is made from the combo-box.
I want a table to display data based on which month i select from a drop-down list, the data is of course extracted from a different table. For example, in my final table( highlighted in yellow), i want to display the revenues, cost of goods sold..etc of April in this table when i choose April from the drop-down list, the data of the entire year is located in another table that i plan to hide, as we only need to review one month.
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.
I need to have a drop down list which displays a different set of values depending upon the value selected by a previous drop down list. ie. (drop down box 1)= x, y, z. (drop down box 2)= either x1, x2, x3, or y1, y2, y3, or z1, z2, z3. I can produce a single drop down box thats not a problem but linking several drop down boxes is beyond me .
I am making a program that needs some macro but I don't know much about it. There are a couple of things I am trying to accomplish and I'm supposing it would be easier to let you look at the actual program so I uploaded it.
In the drop down boxes in column C there are trucking companies listed. Each trucking company has different trucks with different numbers that pull different numbered trailers. When I select say, "T & L" from list c8 I need the lists in that row E8 & G8 to display only the information related to that trucking company and no others (as opposed to every trailer number and truck number on the lists in row 100). Only T&L drives a truck with the number 08 pulling a trailer with the number 564, etc. I need the same thing to happen for the truck list E8. When a particular truck is selected the lists in g8 narrow to the numbers of the trailers that that truck have pulled in before. So e8 (truck number 88) makes g8 list trailers 8855 and 8445 because that driver only pulls those trailers.
If you can kindly help me with that macro to work for a sheets in the workbook that would help a lot. The only thing is it's useless unless the program can learn new trucking company names with their respective trailers and trucks (we get new ones sometimes). I created the "ADD" sheet to be able to add new trucks, trailers, carriers (companies) and employees. If c8 doesn't have say "t&L" trucking company in it I can go to the add tab and type into cell a4 the carrier, d4 trailer number, g4 truck number, etc. I need that information to add itself to my list on the "page 1" tab into the orange colored list a100:a200 while the trailer goes to e100 and truck c100. The above paragraphs macro would then be able to sort the data in the list when a carrier is selected.
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
how i am able to change scenarios using data validation. e.g I have 3 scenarios, i want to be able to show different scenarios using the data validation button. Also in the 2003 excel version i am able to have a scenario toolbar shortcut, how can i have this toolbar shorcut in excel 2007?

i want to be able to change values for each year using data validation/drop down list?
1 last question i also want to know how i can circle certain data for training purposes.
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.
why my drop down list defaults to the middle of the list when first clicking on the arrow that opens the list? I created an alphabetical list of all US airports but when I open the list, it starts at "D" instead of "A" which is the top of the list.
I have a spreadsheet I work with which contains a formula that needs to take an item ID letter/number combo, substitute the preceeding letter(s) with leading zeros (if the initial numerical characters are fewer than 5) to make the result return a 5-digit number.
The original ID can be in several possible formats (beside each I will post the desired result): V7684 07684V366 00366V88 00088V60827 60827VS57871 57871VS67 00067
I have the following formula which works like a charm for all except the last example: =IF(LEN(K2)>5,(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(K2,"VS","),"V",")),(REPT("0",5-LEN(K2))&(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(K2,"VS","0"),"V","0"))))
If the first 2 characters are letters ("VS") and there are fewer than 5 numerical characters, the formula results in a 4-digit number, rather than 5. Using the above example, VS67 returns 0067 instead of 00067.
P.S. I just tried =IF(LEN(K2)>5,(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(K2,"VS",""),"V","")),(REPT("0",5-LEN(K2))&(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(K2,"VS","00"),"V","0")))) which only works when there are 3 or fewer numerical characters.
It's a quarterly schedule for utility meter readers, divided up into days across the top, and routes/areas down the side. There's a space with each route for the employee ID to go, depending on who's doing it.
Down the bottom of the sheet, there's a few empty lines for all the available employees who haven't been allocated to a route.
On the second sheet labelled EMP LIST, is all the employee IDs. It's also got the areas they work- it's for something I want to implement later.
I can put all the employees into a single column list, then use basic DV to give a dropdown menu by each route, to assign an employee to it. This is pretty straight forward. I've also been playing with this in combination with a countif, so that employees already assigned do not appear in the list.
This is about as far as I've managed to get with it.
I need to get the employees who aren't assigned to anything to appear in a list below the routes. I'm fairly sure this is just another countif, but I'm not 100% on the exact formulas.
I also need the list in the dropdown menu to reset for each day of the quarter, i.e. if I assign an employee to a route on the 30th day of the quarter, their ID will disappear from the list for any other route for that day, but will still be there for the other days of the quarter.
So far the only way I've managed to do this is by duplicating the employee list for every day of the quarter, which is going to get very cluttered, and also makes staffing changes difficult. I'm hoping there's an easier way to do this using one data set.
I've added an example of the sheet. It's one week and it's only got about 1/3 of the routes we would actually have on any given day.
I have a workbook with around 35+ sheets on it and I was wondering if its possible if I could put these sheets in a drop down list in say cell A1 so it would be easier to navigate the sheets. Is this possible with out using VBA code if so how would I go about doing it?
I currently have a drop down list in sheet 1 and the list is being refrenced from sheet 2
Lets say the drop down list is for fruits and my current list in sheet 2 has 4 items Apple, Grape, Mango, Peach.
Now this is what I need :-
1 ) lets say a user wants to enter Orange (which is not in the list ) he can still do so by entering it manually into the cell.
2) Once Orange is entered which is not in the LIST in sheet 2 then that new name gets added to the LIST in sheet 2 so that next time that name appears in the drop down list automatically. eg Apple, Grape, Mango, Peach, Orange [ but Items should not get duplicated eg Apple, Grape, Apple, Mango, Peach, Apple
I have Excel 2003 installed on the companies computers. Many people use an Excel file and I am trying to make their work easier. There is on command which has a dropdown list made by me. What I would like to find out is that is there any possibility to make Excel help the user to choose from the drop-down list (the list is quite big). Is it possible to select a cell in this column and type in the cell and then Excel help the user. I mean (this list contains country names in abc order) if the user types S and W then Excel auto-corrects it to SWEDEN. Can this be done with Excel 2003?
im trying to create a spreadsheet for different makes of cars, here is what i want to do.
in cell one i want a drop down list for various makes of cars, in cell 2 i want another drop down list for the different models from that manufacturer (depending on which on I choose in cell one), in cells 3 and 4 I want different information depending on the make an model of the car. I have got 1 sheel with all this info on it but I dont know how to make it all work nice and neatly with drop down lists.
Whiteboard 16mm Colourboard 16mm Colourboard 18mm Veneer 18mm Veneer 19mm Veneer laid up 40mm Painted 16mm Painted 18mm.
When I select one of these items I need CELL A1 to return just the thickness. EG: I hit dropdown list and select Whiteboard, CELL A1 then displays 16mm. Or I select Veneer laid up and it displays 40mm. I would imagine this formula would be quite long as I would have these 8 items in it.
in the attached spreadsheet I have multiple sheets. On the tab "Tech IDS", column A is named "Name" and column B is the tech ID that is associated with the name in column A. Column B is validated as List=Name. Now under the tab "CAL Form" under Column A I need to type the tech's name. Now under the tab "CAL SHEET TEMPLATE" the name that I typed corresponds with a given cell (i.e. B2='CAL Form'!A2). Notice though that I2 does not give a tech id b/c of DV dropdown list meeting its limit. Look at I68, Bob's id appears b/c he fits within the limits. My question is... how can I still use the list with more names or can I modify the formula (=INDEX(ID,MATCH(B68,Name,0))) to include another Match search?
My requirement is to implement a drop down list having two values "Yes (Recommended), No", I want the value "Yes (Recommended)" to be default value for all cells on which this validation is put. But also need a message box to be displayed if the user go ahead and select "No" the message box should be like "If you are not certain about this feature please click on 'Cancel' and contact you List Provider." and have 'Ok' and 'Cancel' button on it.
I am trying to use a drop-down list to alleviate errors in a worksheet but was wondering if it was possible to remove an item from the list once it was selected... Here is what I mean:
The drop down list shows:
Resume Transcript SAT ACT GPA
and there are five columns aside one another with these same options. What I want to know is if I choose resume for the first list, is there a way that I can make that option unavailable in the following four columns and show this:
Transcript SAT ACT GPA
Or if I use any selection from the drop-down list, it would be removed from the other 4 columns.
