Clear & Replace Validation List Based On Value Chosen From Another

Mar 17, 2008

See attached spreadsheet, in sheet 1, yellow columns are for restricted cells and Sheet 2 contains the lists for such columns' validation range. Sub-Strategy is dependent on the choice made from Main-Strategy, e.g. if Main-startegy = EquityHedge, then the choices for sub-strategy can only choose Long Biased, Low Beta & opportunistic. But I also have a "Other" category under Main Strategy, Sheet 2 cell G1, if this is chosen then I would like to remove the data validation in the sub-strategy column, (i.e. u can input anything for sub-strategy) how can I do this?

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?

Update Validation List Depending On Another Value

Mar 14, 2007

I have a drop down list in a column where i want the user to select one of the options which is an action to be taken. The actions would be dependant on the what the persons performance rating was, so for example, if the person has Exceeded their performance targets, the only 2 applicable actions would be High Potential and Emerging Talent. Please see attached file for the actions related to the peformance rating.

I want the validation list of actions to change accordingly depnding on what the persons performance rating is. So in the example attached, i want to look up the rating in column A and have the options appear according in the same row in column B.

Validation List To Change Columns Values

Mar 24, 2009

So I've got a drop down list in cell B73 That when I change the selection I want it to copy the cells below it (B74:B94) from one of the charts above it. Through the power of Google I found this: http://www.eggheadcafe.com/conversat...eadid=29484871, someone who had the same need as me, and edited it accordingly to my needs. It however, is not working. I started with Case 1-7 and changed them thinking they need to be the same as the list but that hasn't fixed it either. File is attached, and below quote is what the VBA coding currently says.

Data Validation List Based On A Table That Can Change?

Jan 11, 2013

I am building an Excel file that will be used to track information and at the core of it all is a list of people from different offices where the number of people per office can change and/or a person leaves the company and is replaced by another. I'll simply:

Column A Column B
Office Employee
Hamilton Emp 1
Hamilton Emp 2
Hamilton Emp 3
Toronto Emp 4
Toronto Emp 5
Toronto Emp 6
Toronto Emp 7
Toronto Emp 8
Waterloo Emp 9
Waterloo Emp 10

This will be all on Worksheet 'Info'. I have a Worksheet for each Office and named them accordingly. On each worksheet I want to use Data Validation on a column, we will call it 'ChosenOne', set it as 'List' and have the Source pull all the employee names that belong to that office and use them as a selection

ex: Hamilton Worksheet, 'ChosenOne' would show Emp 1, Emp 2, and Emp 3 in the list.

If Emp 3 changed offices to Waterloo 6 months from now I would like to change A4 from Hamilton to Waterloo and the formula would not have to be changed and the next time someone selects 'ChosenOne' it would only show Emp 1 and Emp 2.

Of course this means on the Waterloo Worksheet, 'ChosenOne' would show Emp 3, Emp 9, Emp 10 now.

So basically I am trying to not specify a specific named range for each office and am hoping there is a way to poll information from a Table (or any other tool that can simplify this).

I would be ok with something like:

Column A Column B
Office Employee
Hamilton Emp 1, Emp2, Emp 3
Toronto Emp 4, Emp 5, Emp 6, Emp 7, Emp 8
Waterloo Emp 9, Emp 10

and just move Emp 3 from B2 to B4 but I don't know if a list can be created from multiple items in a single cell seperated by a , or ; or :.

Change Validation List Value And Copy / Paste From Dependent Cells?

Jun 12, 2014

I have a sheet which autofilters according to a validation list in cell E2 using the code.

I have then used subtotal arrays to calculate the mean, median, max, min and total count for whichever values the filter shows.

What I want to do next is have a code which will select each possible option from the validation list (triggering the autofilter) and copy and paste the values from each dependent formula into a new sheet.

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)

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.

Validation List To Depend On Another Validation List

Sep 9, 2006

I'm not sure if its possible to do what I want. I'm trying to do it without VBA as my users might have a high macro security setting.

I have a validation dropdown in A2 where they pick 'yes' or 'no' for FLSA. I would like B2 to be a dropdown (validation, listbox, whatever) that would change based upon A2. If A2 is 'yes' I want to use the data in A5:B7 and if its 'no' use A10:B12. Ultimately I want B2 to equal one of the numbers from A5 - A7 or A10 - A12. However when they click on the drop down they see the combo of column A and columb B as column A has no meaning for the user.

If a specific word is entered in a cell I want a list to show in another cell. This is better explained in an example. In cell A2 I have a validation list of names, eg.
