      Hi Nadine,
      The problem didn't cause by the code.
      You need to format the column cells to date format before or after creating the drop-down list.

    Hey, thanks for this! I have managed to get it to work, but like in Cartson's comment: I need to keep selections to the list. It populates ok, but if I enter a word not in the list, it still accepts it. The VBA code you replied with doesn't work unfortunately


    Like in Data Validation/locked cell, can it create some error or not allow the typed entry not in the list?


    Any help is much appreciated

      Hi Ben,
      Sorry there are mistakes in the previous reply.
      After inserting the combo box, open its Properties window, change the Name to TempCombo, and then select 2 - fmStyleDropDownList from the Style field, and finally apply the below code. From now on, it won't allow entering word not in the list.

      Dim xRg As Range
      Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
      Dim xCombox As OLEObject
      Dim xStr As String
      Dim I As Long
      Dim xWs As Worksheet
      Set xWs = Application.ActiveSheet
      On Error Resume Next
      Set xCombox = xWs.OLEObjects("TempCombo")
      With xCombox
      .ListFillRange = ""
      .LinkedCell = ""
      .Visible = False
      End With
      If Target.Validation.Type = 3 Then
      Target.Validation.InCellDropdown = False
      Cancel = True
      xStr = Target.Validation.Formula1
      xStr = Right(xStr, Len(xStr) - 1)
      If xStr = "" Then Exit Sub
      Set xRg = Target
      With xCombox
      .Visible = True
      .Left = Target.Left
      .Top = Target.Top
      .Width = Target.Width + 5
      .Height = Target.Height + 5
      .ListFillRange = xStr
      .LinkedCell = Target.Address
      End With
      xCombox.Activate
      Me.TempCombo.DropDown
      End If
      End Sub
      Private Sub TempCombo_KeyDown(ByVal KeyCode As MSForms.ReturnInteger, ByVal Shift As Integer)
      Dim xSel As Range
      On Error Resume Next
      Select Case KeyCode
      Case 13
      xRg.Offset(0, 1).Select

    Hi every one i noticed a few questions asking if there is a way to limit this to one column but i didn't notice any answers, was this ever figured out? i have multiple drop downs in my work sheet and they are all being affected by the macro where i only want column H to be affected.

    When I paste the VBA code, do I need to change the Worksheet code editor to the Worksheet and Before Double Click? I changed those 2 fields and it populated codes into the code editor screen. So where do I paste the VBA code? after those? Before those? do I delete those 2 codes that autofill and then paste? I tried that but then the Worksheet changed back to General and Declarations and the code doesn't make my cells autofill. What am I doing wrong???

      Hi Denise,
      Just right click the sheet tab (the worksheet contains the drop-down list you will make it autocomplete) and select View Code from the context menu, when the code editor opening, paste the code directly into it.

      You'll have to make a table of the dynamic dataset and assign it to the 'ListFillRange' within the properties of your combobox.

    MR Excel · 2 years ago
    Anyone looking for a simple dropdown input form in excell based on a list; i used Data.. "Data Validation" and then choose Allow: "List" and pointed the source at the list.
    This does not do the auto complete but does avoid any macros or dev and just uses native simple Excel features.

      Good day,
      The dropdown list mentioned in the post is the Data Validation dropdown list.
      After creating the Data Validation dropdown list in the worksheet, go ahead to apply the steps from 2 to 10 in the post.

    Hello, this worked great for me until I tried to create dependent drop-down lists. I wanted my selection for my drop down list in cell C2, for example, to depend on what I selected from my drop down list in cell A2. When I use an index-match formula to create this dependent drop-down in C2 (c/p the formula into the data validation interface with "List" as my allowed value), my index-match formula becomes part of the drop down list's options. Any ideas?

    Good day, how to write words that are in the drop-down list, this option that you gave me serving me a lot, but additionally I would like to know how to write for example "ACETAMINO" 905701 ACETAMINOFEN AUTOMATED, and bring me all that word that contains my drop-down list
    With this option to consult the data requires me to start by typing in the order of the sentence, that is, having to write 905701 ... as I have a drop-down list of 1000 rows who consult the data we will have to memorize all the data and that would help.

    Hi, bro. Thanks for the macro.
    I wanna know if you can edit this code to make autofill for emails.
    Ex: If my mail is victor@gmail.com and I write victor, and then @, when I write @ I got the common options (domains) for emails, like gmail.com, hotmail.com, outlook.com, etc.
    Is this possible?
    I would appreciate it very much.

      crystal · 2 years ago
      Good day,
      The code also works for email address. For the email address "victor@gmail.com", when typing "victor" or only the initial "v" into the cell, the entire email address "victor@gmail.com" will be atocomplete in the cell.

    Hi, thank you, great code. Is there a way to modify your code so that after typing "ana" I still will see "Nana" as a choice? Now it will narrow the choices to anything that starts with "ana". So now it is "ana*" but would be great if it could be "*ana*".

        The code you provide can help to clear the combo box cell value automatically when reselecting it. What do you mean overwrite it? Why not reselect or retype the new value in the combo box cell manually?

    HI I like the code very much. But I was using named ranged as the Source (i.e. Source: =itemlist) for data validation and it works properly before I insert the VBA code. However after I insert the VBA code into my worksheet, my drop-down list shown only 1 selection i.e. 'itemlist' in the Source. I know it works well if I use excel cells e.g. A1:A16 as the Source when setting up data validation, but I was prefer for using named ranged as the Source.

    Is there any solutions? Thanks.

    Hi thanks a lot for the code, but the drop-down listing only appears for the data validation lists where the "Source" comes from reference to excel cells (e.g. cell B3:B10), for those where the "Source" listing is text-based (e.g. "Yes,No") the combo box will fail to show the list of options available although a manual input can still be done.

    Can you help out on this issue? Thanks.

    Thanks for this great code. I do have a question about if it would be possible to change the color of the linked cell if the person chooses a value from the list or if they type one of their own? For example, if I choose a value from the list the linked cell would show green text when I left the cell. If I typed my own value, then the linked cell would show red indicating I didn't choose one of the values from the list. Is this possible?

    Thanks for the wonderful code.
    I have a question.
    My cells in excel are of the nature x4x - y4y. The answers from the drop down are filtered only for the words matching the first half or starting with the alphabet xx but if i search for y4y, it will not show in the results.
    Is there a way to include the second half in the search as well?
    Also
    How can i modify the code so that the results shows all the alphabets from the search menu?
    Ex: If am searching for the word "example", but i input "ample", I would like to have the word "example" shown in the list as it contains the part of the search request.

    Hello.
    How is this used for data entry? The primary reason to use data validation is to regulate your data input to have normalized results. I can think of how to use this for a search box, but not for what I would expect data validation to accomplish.
    Is there a way to put your data from the box into a new row?

    I have been using this code for months and love it, however I would like to use an if statement in my data validation source. I have the formula and it works without this vba code, but when I put the vba code back into the workbook the combo box doesn't show any values, just one blank box. Is there a way to incorporate an if statement for which list the code will look at.


    Example of my formula with bad formatting.
    =if(A1="x",named_range1,if(A1="y",named_range2))

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi

    Thanks this worked for me...I used a Named Range in a table so had a bit of a hiccup but found this youtube video to help out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwA2gAbEXic&feature=youtu.be

    I was curious to know why in your code that you made reference to the Combo

    Set xCombox = xWs.OLEObjects("TempCombo")


    But you then also just used Me.TempCombo.DropDown ? Was there a reason you just didnt use Me.TempCombo??
    • To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.
      crystal · 3 years ago
      Hi Glen,
      In this case, we are using combo box to assist the auto-complete operation in data validation drop-down lists which already created in the worksheet. So I use the TempCombo.DropDown instead of TempCombo.

Further, i have 2 additional copies of this model, and would like each of the drop downs to work separately, to allow the user to select items to compare between each model. Is there a way to do this? When i try the steps outlined, each of the combo boxes are linked to the same list.

    Now its only searching for the first letters. Is it possible that it also search for complete words in the middle. Example PEFC Thermopal white. If i write white that it search for every row with white in it. It's the same question what @Rusty asked below ''I too would love something like Kumar indicates. Let's say one of the values in the drop down list is "John Goodman", is there anyway for the combo box to select and populate "John Goodman" as the user types just "Goodman"?
