There are 4 lists possible based on the contents of D4:

If cell is 1 = list (on datasheet tab) should be limited to range A42:A71 only

If cell is 2 = list (on datasheet tab) should be limited to range A72:A87 only

If cell is 3 = list (on datasheet tab) should be limited to range A88:A90 only

Hi.

I'm a beginner when it comes to VB Script and so I am struggling to work this out. I basically have a worksheet that contains information about different staff members. The sheet is set up so that column A (from row 8 on) is their name and columns B to L (also from row 8 on) are other staff attributes. Due to several reasons, there is more than one listing for each staff member (up to 40). The database is supposed to be there so that any staff member can come in and look up their information (or that of any other staff member). However, with so many listings and so many staff members, it becomes an unmanageable database. I could just create filters so that staff members could simply filter out other employees; however, this would create issues. Instead, I have created a cell above the table (say C2) where staff members can enter their name via means of a data validation list (which is linked to a list of staff members on another sheet). I would then like all rows in the table to hide except for those where the name in column A = C2.

I have searched this on the net and I keep seeing similar responses that all say it's hard when there is data validation / formulas involved. Is there a way this can be done?

Cheers

Hi all,

I am trying to develop a cost calculator based on several drop down lists. I have used the following formula:

=AVERAGEIFS('Scope Of Work'!I:I,'Scope Of Work'!C:C,C6,'Scope Of Work'!F:F,'Cost Calculation'!D6,'Scope Of Work'!G:G,'Cost Calculation'!E6)

Cells C6, D6 and E6 in the Cost Calculation Tab are all drop down menus based on data validation. The formula works when all 3 cells have a selection value but I also want it to calculate if only one or two of the drop down lists have been populated, any ideas?

Thanks,

Hello,

I cant seem work out a solution for what I'm trying to do. I have an Excel workbook that has multiple sheets. On sheet 1 i want the data from cell "G3" to be copied onto sheet 2. But i want the location on sheet 2 to be based on whatever was entered into cell "D3" on sheet 1.

For example: Sheet 1, cell D3 I have the name John, in cell G3 i have 68. I want "68" to be pasted in sheet 2 in cell B26.

But if the name in Sheet 1 cell D3 is Suzie, then I want G3 to be pasted in Sheet 2 in cell D26. So I would need to identify the paste location for each person.

I want the data to paste to the next cell so that the next entry can be pasted below the last entry for that person (for John the first entry would go into cell B26, then the next entry would go into cell B27 and so on).

But i want it to be a specific range, i dont want data to be pasted past 20 cells (cell B45). If possible a message box could be created to let the user know that the max is reached.

I would appreciate anyone's help with this as i have been struggling for awhile to try to get this. Thank you

Hi there
sincerely hoping & wondering whether someone out here could help me by offering me your solution or suggestion ?

My situation is as follows:
In my worksheet there is about 600 cells scattered all over the sheet that are to represent different monetary value figures, that I have used NAME MANAGER to define as MONEDATA1, MONEDATA2, and MONEDATA3 (each holding around 200 cells, which is the approx.limit allowed by NAME MANAGER for Excel 2010). Thing is, my work revolves around dealing with 12 different countries of currencies, and so all these monetary cells, in CURRENCY format, thus need to be 1 out of 12 different currencies with respective currency signs, at any one time I do some calculation. So, they must convert into 1 of those 12 currencies, each time determined by a selection from a single dropdown list of 12 currencies located at the top of the worksheet in one particular cell I data validated, which is $C$6.

Now, I just need the worksheet to convert all the 3 groups MONEDATA1, MONEDATA2 and 3 simultaneously, instantly when 1 of the 12 currencies is chosen in $C$6, by using a VBA code. Is there a best way to resolve this need ?

Could you help me with the above problem ? Thanks in anticipation and advance ! Greatly appreciated any help.
cheers & have a nice day there,
Jason.

I am trying to create a validation list in Excel, but the problem is that it won't let me do this because the dropdown I want to create is on a separate "sheet" than the data that it needs to contain. I am doing it this way, because there is more than one range I need to pull data from.

Is there any way to do this? I would prefer not to have to copy the data from the first sheet to a "hidden column" on the second sheet, but if there's no other way, then I guess I am stuck.

Hi,

New here. I dug up a thread that Zack Barresse solved many years ago. I am looking to do the exact same thing. The link to the thread is below. My file is infinitely more complicated than what that user was asking for so I need a bit more help tuning the VBA. Link: http://forums.techguy.org/business-applications/710581-automatic-email-alerts-using-excel.html

Some specifics:

- I am using Outlook not Express
- Excel 2007
- All the functionality is complete for monitoring several live streams of securities data with several trade indicators.
- It is consolidated onto one sheet for manual monitoring (Picture below). Basically takes copious amounts of data and reduces it to just IF and AND functionality for the triggers for easy use from all the other sheets.
- The workbook will be open and running/refreshing on its own 24/7 as it is now.

I am a busy guy, I just need the VBA to automatically email me remotely when any of the 7 currency pairs causes a trigger when I am on the go. I can log trades from an app on my phone.

One other hurdle would be that if say (Using percentages to keep it simple) that a trigger would be if something reached as high as 80% to send the notification email. But where the system refreshes every 60 seconds it shouldn't send another notification each time it remains at or above 80%. Just the once. It may remain there for hours and that is a lot of emails.


Thoughts? and many many thanks in advance.

Hi all,

I have a workbook containing 30 worksheets. The first sheet is named Master, while the other 29 worksheets are named with cities where we held branch offices (Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Washington D.C., etc.)

I am trying to write a macro that will copy the contents of a row in the Master sheet to a particular worksheet based on the contents of the cell in that row that contain the location.

To illustrate:
Master sheet:
Columns are: Staff Name, Location, Project status

We have over 5000 staff.
I am trying to write a macro that will copy each staff's record to the worksheet corresponding to his/her location, depending on their project status.

So I am planning to use macro buttons labelled A, B or C (these are the values in the Project status column). So when I click on the button labelled A, the macro will go through all 5000 employees, and for those employees whole project status is "A", will copy that employee's record into a worksheet depending on his/her location.

For example:
Staff name, Location, Project Status
Joe Doe, Los Angeles, A
Jane Davis, New York, A
Mike Smith, Los Angeles, C

When I click on the macro for "A", it should copy Joe Doe's record into the worksheet labelled Los Angeles and copy Jane Davis' record into the worksheet labelled New York.

Thank you so much for your help. I've been searching all over the place for the command to use to reference the worksheet.

Sounds like a simple thing but I’m having troubles finding an easy answer. Still searching ….

I want to create a catalogue for a customer of mine (basic – but might be more extensive later)

– showing a thumbnail picture and then a short product description. Then he can go into the doc and correct the descriptions etc.

Not sure if excel or word or other is the best place.

He has over 200 product pictures stored on disks and folders on hard drive. I have corresponding description in excel based on a code that is the photo name (+.jpg).

So, I have the product files name as HB1000.jpg and all I want to do is show the picture (say at size 100x100)

Ideally I’d like to build a reference based on the code and not have to insert each file.

Thoughts??

So far – tried creating a formula/reference in excel with “Code” HB1000 (Cell A2) and image cell contains “=c:\productimage\”$A2$”.jpg” - can not get the pic to display

Hiyo.
To begin with, I just want to check if this is viable, and if so, which solution is best/easiest...

Office 2010.

Current situation:
An Outlook rule moves certain messages to an Outlook folder.
A macro button is used to run code that prints the attachments of all messages in that folder.
Think it then deletes the messages.

Required situation:
Instead of printing all attatchments, the macro needs to look at a specific column of data in an Excel file.
If a value in the Excel column matches (or part matches) the filename of the attachment, the attachment is printed.
All attachments with filenames that do not match the Excel list are left alone.

Alternatively, switch it round, so the macro is in the Excel file, and it checks the values in the column against the attachment filenames of messages in that Outlook directory, and prints those that match.

Alternatively, write something in Outlook code, perhaps using a form control, whereby the user can enter (paste in) the batch of values, and it then prints attachments accordingly, rather than trying to forge a link between Excel and Outlook.

Alternatively... use some 3rd party tool that accepts the batch of values and interacts with Outlook to print the attachments, bypassing the need to write and manage code.

Or something else?

Cheers.
 

A:Outlook/Excel - Print selected attachments based on Excel list

Alternatively... modify the existing Outlook macro to save all attachments to a dir on the PC instead of print, and then write an Excel macro to check the files in the dir instead of the Outlook folder.

Hi,

I am hoping someone here can help me with a macro I am using to allow me to select multiple items from a validation list in MS Excel - see example attached. Both of these I think were from threads here on TechGuy...

The idea in the attached is that in columns A and C I can select multiple items from the validation lists however in Column B the validation list should function as normal (i.e. only allow 1 item to be selected from list).

Here is the code I am using:
Code:
Option Explicit

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rngDV As Range
Dim oldVal As String
Dim newVal As String
If Target.Count > 1 Then GoTo exitHandler

On Error Resume Next
Set rngDV = Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeAllValidation)
On Error GoTo exitHandler

If rngDV Is Nothing Then GoTo exitHandler

If Intersect(Target, rngDV) Is Nothing Then
'do nothing
Else
Application.EnableEvents = False
newVal = Target.Value
Application.Undo
oldVal = Target.Value
Target.Value = newVal
If Target.Column = 1 Or 3 Then
If oldVal = "" Then
'do nothing
Else
If newVal = "" Then
'do nothing
Else
Target.Value = oldVal _
& ", " & newVal
End If
End If
End If
End If

exitHandler:
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub
Where the "If Target.Column = 1 Or 3 Then" determines the columns to operate on.

This works fine if I just opt for ONE column e.g. "If Target.Column = 3 Then... Read more

Hmmm... I THINK I may have found the answer and am using:

The email will be sent to a recipient listed in another cell column and cc my coworker. I also need a code to change the data in another cell to "Approve, Email Sent" when the same cell date is between 7 and 1 days from the current date and "Expired, Email Sent" when the date equals the current date so that an email will only send if this cell does not equal "Approved, Email Sent" or "Expired, Email Sent" so that emails are not repeatedly sent every time the spreadsheet is opened.

error check the input number (show error if the value is smaller than 0 or larger than the corresponding value) ... I can write the error check by myself, so no need to do this step
subtract the number from the corresponding cell (i.e. user clicked a button located in cell A9, input 9,24 pieces in a dialog box and there are 15,97 pieces in P9 => the pieces in P9 should change to 6,73)

In her Mileage Log form, each cell in the "Starting Location" (Column B) and each cell in the "Destination" (Column C) has a list of addresses from which she can select. The lists are generated from the DATA Sheet mileage chart

As an example and in other words, if we select the address at 417 Victoria Dr., Kerrville in Column B and select the address at 110 Ash, Ingram in Column C. By looking at the mileage chart on the DATA Sheet, we see the distance between those 2 places is 10.6 miles. Presently, we have to enter that mileage manually in Column F.

Is there a way to have excel get the mileage number from the DATA sheet based on the locations selected on the Mileage Log sheet. I could probably use a lot of nested IF statements but that would be real cumbersome and very hard to modify as she has clients come and go from time to time in which case I would have modify each IF statement. I'm sure there is a better and simpler way.

A:Automatic Email from Excel based on Date in Cell

Hi all,

I was wondering. I have an Excel sheet in which people can select some few things.
For example Type, Gender.

Depending on what's selected here, another validation list is filled in with values (male gives other values then female).

Now I would like that when a Type and Gender are selected, the first item from the new to select values is displayed automatically.

So is it possible that a validation list automatically displays the first item instead of staying blank?

I've searched the internet for a solution, but I can't find any.

Thanks in advance.

Any suggestions for removing blanks from an Excel 2000 drop-down validation list?
Data validation procedures I found at the MVP site work fine in a new (empty) spreadsheet but cannot get it to work in a spread sheet that already contains lists. Lists are named ranges in several columns but on the same worksheet. The data validation area is on a separate worksheet.
In one column, the drop down works fine but in another column the dropdown starts at the bottom and I must scroll up past blank lines to see the list.

Hope this helps:

Sheet 1 = columns that will contain validation cells
Sheet 2 = Named Range 1 in col. 1, Named Range 2 in col. 2 . . .

On Sheet 1:
col 1 dropdown list =OK
col 2 dropdown list = blanks and must scroll up to see beginning of list (only 3 items in this list)

Thank for any help you can provide.

Hi There

I'm not sure if this is possible or not. I checked the internet and coud not find a solution. I have created a very simple dropdown list with only 2 entries. I typed in the entries in the list source box. Is there a way that the user can also type in any other entry of his/her choosing to the cell without the message appearing saying that the entry is not valid?? If it is not possible please let me know.

Thanks

i have a spreadsheet that updates with data from a number of different sources. i need to filter only the relevant data that i need. i'm almost there but need to find out how to pull 2 more pieces.

in the attached spreadsheet the cells i need are in column R and T. I need to know the corresponding "name" and "size" of the data that is in column S.

unfortnuately the actual values don't show up in the spreadsheet b/c they are live data feeds but the formulas written up until now are still there.

in a nutshell what i'm doing is getting 5 price feeds and i need to filter out which is the highest updated within the last 2 minutes. i actually have the only the price figured out in column S, but i also now which name and how big the size is related to that price.

your help is very appreciated.

I am working with the attached spreadsheet in Excel 2010 and am trying to figure out how to code certain parameters that will make Excel send myself, my client or other individual an email (with text in body) if certain dates have not been entered into particular cells, or if a cell has exceeded a certain number of days in a particular cell. I have attached a sample spreadsheet and have listed at the bottom 8 points in which I need an email sent, what the trigger is and what the action (email sent to) is.

I just know enough to be very dangerous with Excel but have found that there is a way to code in Excel to send emails which would greatly help my business but I just don't know that much about codes at all.

Can anyone please help me??

Thanks!!

Hi All,

I have had a look around this site for help and found similar posts but nothing exact or that i can get to work. I'm working on Excel 2010 and i want to do the following unhide or hide a value based on a cell value e.g. -

If Cell "C40" = Yes

Unhide Rows 42 - 47

If Cell "C40" = No or BLANK

Hide Rows 42 - 47

Any help would be much appreciated, I assume this needs to be done in VB by right clicking on the sheet>>Show Code then adding it in. Do you just save then and it should work automatically ?

Thank you

I would like to know a method to solve an otherwise repetative task in Excel for me.

In my Excel spreadsheet, I have many columns relating to customer orders etc. Each customer (finite number (~40)) has its name (customer1, and customer2 etc) input to a cell, I then must fill out the customer account number (ac001, ac002 etc). The customer name and number already exist on another sheet.

How can I automate the process of when I input the customer name, excel then fills in the customer number in the next cell?

Many thanks

Hi folks, not sure if this is possible or not but I'll try to explain what I'd like to do.

On the first sheet, I have a simple sheet to be filled in daily. The date is changed, and then daily pick figures and hours picked are updated by the relevant department.

I then have to manually put all of the data into the second sheet, which acts as a log of previous pick figures.

Is there a way the second sheet can automatically be filled in when the date is changed and new figures are put into sheet 1?

I hope I've explained this well enough, I'm trying to teach myself excel as I'm going along! Thanks.

Edit - I've had to delete peoples names' for obvious reasons, initials in sheet 2 will correspond to people in sheet 1.

A:Auto mail from Excel to Outlook based on date in cell

Hi there, welcome to the board!

You'd want a location to mark when an email was sent. I'm assuming you want a worksheet change event for this, which will basically always run when a cell on this specific worksheet is changed. There are other events you could use to fire it off, like the calculate event. You could, if you wanted to, assign this functionality to a button, but then it wouldn't be automatic.

The below code does what you ask. It goes in the worksheet module of the worksheet your data is on. To get to it, right click the sheet tab name and select 'View Code', then paste this there.

EDIT: The locations to mark when an email was sent (btw) were columns K and L, as you'll see them set as constants at the top of the code. You can change those letters to any column you want to house it in. It just puts the current system date in those cells, and that will be checked when the values in column J are checked. If nothing is there it assumes an email hasn't been generated yet and will do so. But if it has a value - any value, it will ignore that row.

Also, I assumed a 'yellow' highlighted value was your first reminder, and a 'red' highlighted value was your second reminder. It uses this as text in the subject and body of the email.
Code:
Option Explicit

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

Const ReminderOne As String = "K" 'column letter
Const ReminderTwo As S... Read more

Afternoon everyone,

For the first time that I've gotten Office, I'm using Excel, and it's turning out to be a lot harder than I would have liked.

I basically have a template spreadsheet that will be used to import contacts into Access. There are certain fields that have to be limited to a list provided (I got as far as using the Data Validation to set the list, picking a list from each individual worksheet), but I'm having difficulty to find a way to limit entries ONLY to the drop down list I've designated.

Would anyone know what has to be done in order to limit it to the list? I've been searching all over the internet, but I can't seem to find anything that is helpful.

Thank you for your time.

Hello,

A pretty inexperienced VBA'er here.

I have 2 named ranges:

- LastStatus = "J8:J500"
- CurrentStatus = "K8:K500"

What I would like to do is create a loop to copy the cells in CurrentStatus over to the LastStatus column if and only if there is a value in CurrentStatus (column K). If there is no value in column K and there is a value in column J, I do not want change the value in column J.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
