# Input In One Cell To Enter Data To Another Cell

Feb 21, 2014

If any text or number is added to a specific cell then a letter "P" is entered into another predefined cell.

Example:

Cell A1 is normally empty but if a number or text is added to cell B1 then a letter "P" is automatically placed into cell A1.

## Input Data In A Cell And Press Enter - Auto Save?

## Go Immediately To A Particular Cell After Inputting Data In Another Cell And Hitting Enter Options

Feb 20, 2010

I'm inputting data in E3 and after I hit enter I want B2 to be
selected. But only for E3 and only in one worksheet. And possibly a
further step... Sometimes the formula in B2 has picked up data from
another place depending on what value was entered in E3. If it's done
this then I won't need to go to B2, I'd want to go to A8 after E3

## Macro To Enter Data Without Using Input Box

Aug 25, 2012

I need a simple macro to enter data for hours worked, but don't like the inputbox.

I need to enter the Emp Nbr in B1.
AM in Time in B3
AM out Time in B4
PM in Time in B7
PM out Time in B8

I then write down the hours worked and

When I enter an new number, I want it to put 0 in B3,B4,B7 and B8

(see attached) Oops can't post. There is probably a better way to calculate the sub-totals, but this works except on an enter of 1200

## Enter Fixed Data Pattern Based On User Input

Jun 21, 2012

I've been going round in circles with this for hours and have got no-where. I 'm trying to get Excel to paste in a set pattern of data based on an input cell.

In row 1 I have months starting in cell B1. B1 = April 12, C1 = May 12, D1 = June 12, and so on

The user would enter the data in column A, starting in row 2

If the date in A2 = May 12 then Excel would enter 10 in cell C2, 20 in cell D2 and 30 in cell E2. If the date in A2 is changed to June 12, then the previous data would be cleared and Excel would enter 10 in E2, 20 in F2 and 30 in G2.

Date would be entered in A3, A4, A5 etc and I would want it to post the same fixed data depending on the date the user enters in teh relevant row.

I've tried IF statements and also some code but can't even get near it working.

## Input Data Then Clear Cell But Save To Another Cell?

Jan 29, 2014

I want to be able to see the average rating for each employee.. Is there a way to put in the rating from one survey and have it automatically add it another cell and then have it clear the first cell?

Here is an example of what I would like to do: Say we get 2 surveys with one rating of 5 and one rating of 10... If I input the 5 into cell Q4 and have it automatically put into cell R4 and then it gets deleted from Q4 but saved to R4... and then I can add the rating of 10 to Q4 and it automatically ads it to R4 and clears Q4 and totals R4 to an average of 7.5.

This way, with each new survey I can just input each rating to Q4 and have it cleared for the next rating and then have an average rating of all the surveys in R4... we do not need to keep track of how many ratings we are getting, just the average rating.

I have attached the excel sheet if you would like to take a look at what I am trying to do..

## Enter Data In A Formula Cell

Mar 12, 2007

Is there a way to add data into a cell that already had a formula? Lets say in cell A1 we have a formula like "=A1*A2". Would I be able to some how enter a value into cell A1 without changing the formula?

Example: enter value "5" into A2 and value "10" into A1 which would result in A1 value being "50" after value is entered.

I know that this creates a circular error but is there any other way to accomplish this?

## Enter Data Into One Cell From Formula In Another?

May 14, 2013

I know I can put an IF formular into B1 =if(A1="sat",D/O,0) but obviously if people enter data to this cell i.e time they worked the formula goes is there anyway I can put a formular into C1 but have the result entered into B1?

A1 sat
B1 D/O
C1

## Enter Data In Cell, But Keep Formula As Well

Mar 27, 2009

Is it possible to have a formula in a cell which can be overwritten by manually entering in a number, but if the manually entered number is deleted, the formula remains in the cell.

## If A Cell Is Empty Then Enter Data From Another?

Jul 26, 2006

I have an excel sheet with a few columns, Column (1) has data entered for ever row (with a name.) Column (2) has a few random cells with data (names) about 30% and the rest are left blank. What I need, is to have a formula in a new column (3) that will put in the the data (names) of column (2) and then if there isnt data in column (2) then it will put the Data (names) from column (1). (ps, If i cant get this figured out, we have to buy a custom interface and it will cost around \$7000,)

## Enter Data In Textbox And Go To Cell Containing That Text

Oct 19, 2011

I have a very long spreadsheet with about 3000 rows. lets say for simplicity that column A contains a list of product ID numbers. I am looking for some macro code where I can just type in the product ID into a textbox, then hit enter (or a 'go' button) and then the cursor will move to the cell containing the part number.

I know Ctrl+F will do the job for me, but because of the frequency that I do these searches, a text input box would be easier still.

The nearest solution I could find was the one here Find text but its a bit 'overkill' for my needs.

## How To Enter Date In Separate Cell By Using Data Validation

Aug 19, 2013

I have used data validation to colour rows in one of my spreadsheets at work. The column that uses the data validation is the first column and has a drop down list of 5 words. One of which is collected, which currently indicates when the card has been collected by the individual in question and no further attention is required. It colours the rest of the row green. There is also a column that is entitled 'Date Collected'. Instead of having to input this manually, is there a way to automatically enter the date to be the date that the 'Collected' value was selected?

The title is misleading, I realise there will need to be some sort of IF statement in the 'Date Collected' column. It's been a long day already.

## Command Button To Print/enter Cell Data

Dec 29, 2009

Is it possible to create a command button to print the sheet, and, have a prompt come up and ask you to enter a date? Then that date is entered in a cell and the sheet prints? Just not sure where to start. I know how to make the command button and get to the view code for the button.

## Enter Data From Userform Into Cells Starting From Specific Cell?

Feb 3, 2014

I need to add something to the code below to have my first row of data entered into cell "Q8". As it is now the data is starting on row Q9 instead of Q8, but the rest of it is filling in correctly.

## Excel 2010 :: Data Validation - Restrict Value User Can Enter Into A Cell

Oct 2, 2012

I'm using Excel 2010, and I need to restrict the value the user can enter into a cell (E9).

In cell E3 is the screen width (pixels). eg 6024
In cell E5 is the preferred width of a window. eg 450

The user, in cell E9, enters an x coordinate for which they prefer the top left corner of the window whose width is specified in E5.

If the value that the user enters in E9, added to the width entered in E5, exceeds the value of E3, (if E9+E5 > E3) then the value should be disregarded (window will be off right of screen) and the user re-enter.

I'm not familiar with the use of data validation, so I'm uncertain as to how to use it in this circumstance.

## Run Macro After Cell Data Input

Jan 24, 2012

I want to run a macro that unhides 15 lines (line 20 to 35) when data is inputed on cell 'F6' and to run another macro called "search" (i have already finished this macro) which will fill in information on the unhidden lines from above.

## VBA If Range Value = Something AND Another Cell Has No Entry- Prompt The User To Enter Data- My Code Is Not Working

## Autoupdate Cell Comment Based On Cell Input / Dynamic Cell Comments?

Aug 16, 2013

I'm wondering if it is at all possible to have a cell comment automatically update depending on what data is input in the cell (via user input, VLOOKUP, etc.)?

For example, if cell A1 contains the text "CHARLES" with a comment saying "Employee of the Month", and is then subsequently updated with the new text "JOHN" (again, via direct input, a VLOOKUP, data validation, etc.) is there a way to have the comment automatically update to say something else, such as "Team Lead" for example?

I've considered using VBA to accomplish my goal, but am unsure how to compose an effective code to do so. I've also considered perhaps creating a named table filled with all the different comment possibilities I would like to have used in this cell and then inputting a formula in either cell A1, or the comment contained therein, that would then call the corresponding text from that table based on the data in cell A1. Honestly, I'm not sure that what I'm trying to do is even possible;

## Data Input Cell Progress Indicator?

Jul 24, 2014

I want to put progress indicator for data input in Excel.

The data input is in cell A1 until A10, and B1 until B10.

So, I need two progress indicator (for cell A & B).

## Using A Cell On Another Worksheet As Input For Data Validation

Oct 13, 2008

Situation: I have an Excel file with multiple worksheets. Each of these worksheets contain the same rules for data validation in a certain column (G).

Problem: If I want to add an item to the data validation lists I have to edit every single worksheet. I've tried making a seperate worksheet containing data validation items and using that as the source for the data validation rule, but Excel doesn't allow me to switch worksheets while defining the source.

In other words, I want to manage my data validation rules of multiple columns in multiple worksheets in one central location.

## Highlighting Changes In Cell After Data Input Macro Run

Jun 27, 2013

I work for a marketing agency where technical savvy-ness is really limited. We analyze a lot of web page elements. I have a program that exports this data into a csv file and I've created a template for the user to add this sheet. This data is primarily text. I've created a button on another sheet that runs a macro that extracts data from the first sheet onto the second sheet in a particular format for ease of reading and editing it. That part is all good, this macro works and the button works. Now I'm trying to have it such when a person edits one of these cells, it highlights the changes on this newly sheet using VBA (the highlighting changes function just turned out to be too messy and buggy for what I want). I have this basic change macro that I have on the sheet currently:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Const WS_RANGE As String = "A1:H500"

On Error GoTo ws_exit:
Application.EnableEvents = False
If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Range(WS_RANGE)) Is Nothing Then
With Target
.Interior.ColorIndex = 30
End With
End If

ws_exit:
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

This works as well. However, my problem is that when I run the data button macro, of course excel reads this as a change to the cell and highlights it as a change before any actual changes are made. How can I have it so I run my data macro, and the cell changes are highlighted only *after* the user goes in to edit the text data plugged in from the data macro?

## Using Cell Reference For Data Table Input

Jan 27, 2014

I have a data table that looks like this:

RATE
Monthly
289.68
1.00%
262.81
2.00%
276.04

[Code]....

all the RATE numbers are manually entered.

now, if i reference the 3.00% number under the RATE column to the INPUT cell that I entered when I setup the data table, this happens:

RATE
Monthly
289.68
1.00%
262.81

[Code]....

this is obviously not correct, it is the value for the entry above.

and...

if i make ALL of the RATE cells then relative to the 3.00% one... (in other words 2.00% is actually =A5-0.01 and 4% is actually =A5+0.01)

i get...

RATE
Monthly
289.68
1.00%
262.81
2.00%
250.00

[Code]...

this is weird b/c the number for the first one and last one never change, but all the ones in-between change.

incidentally, the formula which is being solved is simply a 30k loan pmt for 10yrs ( =PMT(RATE/12,120,30000)*-1 )

## Data Table - Input Cell On Different Sheet

Mar 12, 2008

Is there a way to create a data table where the input cell is not on the same sheet as the table? I've tried using a named range, and can't make that work.

I usually work around the problem by putting my data tables on my assumptions sheet, or creating a new input cell on the data table sheet, and linking the original input cell to it,

## Calculate Data Input And Assign This To Cell

Aug 6, 2008

Is is possible to create a calc for simple data input and assign this to cell U31 so that everytime user selects this cell then the calc pops up.

I didnt want to use an add-in in case other users don't have this add in on their computer.

## Restrict User To Input Certain Data Without Referring To Another Cell?

Nov 27, 2013

I want to restrict user from entering alphabets like I,O,Q and S in a cell. Can we do this using data validation or any formula because I don't wan't to use drop-down list or refer to values in other cells either.

## Autofilter Column Of Data Based On Cell Input?

Jul 30, 2014

I have a table of data which I would like to filter based on a manual cell input instead of the autofilter option.

The table has tickers in column B and has information from column B to U. I would like to filter the data based on a manual ticker that I enter.

## How To Leave Cell Empty When There Is No Data Input After A Formula

Jul 28, 2014

When i use

Code:
=IF(ISBLANK(I31);"";I31-IF(ISNUMBER(J31);J31;0))
The cell gives me an error, i think because I31 has a formula that returns no value.

How can i stop the formula if cell I31 gives me no data??

## Auto Change Row Color After Cell Data Input

Jun 4, 2008

Not sure if this is possible or if I would need to run a VB macro. image multiple columns with text headers.

'A'=Project Number 'B'= Date 'C'=Description etc etc etc 'S'=Cancelled (i actually use up to 'Z' on the columns for various other data)

I have added a Conditional Format on the cells in column 'S' that if the cell data = Y then colour the cell RED. This at first glance will show that the project has been cancelled. What I would like it to do is to colour the complete row (shaded grey for example) this would then show up more easily with the amount of data that is on my sheet.

## Input In Multiple Cells To Generate Input Into Single Cell?

Feb 22, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with 5 columns. A1 to A5

Entries are made into columns A2 to A5 but only ever one entry across all cells

If an entry is made into A2 to A5 the I need a "P" to be placed into A1

## Input Box To Create And Input Info Into A Formula Which Then Populates A Cell With A Value

Jul 24, 2014

I am trying to create a macro which gives me an input box. I need to enter 2 numbers into the input box. It would be as follows:

Input Box Msg 1 - "What is your labor cost?" (NUM1)
Input Box Msg 2 - "What is your productivity rate?" (NUM2)

Then I need the macro to take this info and enter it into a formula which changes according to the row which you are on. (I need the macro to work based on which ever cell I currently have selected). The formula would be this if I currently had a cell on row 10 selected:

=(NUM1*(NUM2*\$H10))/\$H10

So, if I currently had cell L10 selected, and I ran the macro and put 100 in for "NUM1" and 10 for "NUM2" and my sheet had 20 in cell H10, then the macro would enter the number 1,000 into cell L10. If I had L500 selected, then the macro would enter the final number into cell L500 based on what value H500 contained.
