if you would send an example that would be helpful

Customer reply replied 30 days ago
I want a code that will use the (4) named ranges shown on the attached spread sheet
Microsoft Office Technician: The-PC-Guy, Computer Manager replied 30 days ago

not entirely sure what you are trying to do where is the user form?

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 30 days ago
The user form will have (3) combo boxes , one each, for "Category", "Sub-category" & "Vendor". It will along with other inputs, add the info into a new line in a table. Remember what I sent was only a sample of how I created a dynamic list for cascading drop down boxes using (4) named ranges. These (4) named ranges are what I need help with in writing code. Every example I have seen wants me to have a complex list with all of the combinations to achieve what I have done with just my (4) named ranges.
Microsoft Office Technician: The-PC-Guy, Computer Manager replied 30 days ago

well I would need a better example, i would need to see the userform and what you mean by having it added to a new table.

I would be most likely using arrays to do lists for combo boxes, I think the idea, is you choose 1 value in the first box then based on that selection, populate the 2nd box and so on. I would probably do that with arrays.

If you could send me a better example that shows the user form and what you mean by populate the table.

I think I see what you have done with the lists sheet, that shouldn't be hard to replicate into combo boxes, but yes the better example file with the user form would help

Hoow do I get back to you later. I need to go out now. I can give you the exact spresdsheet but when i tried to attach an .xlsm file your site would not accept it.
Microsoft Office Technician: The-PC-Guy, Computer Manager replied 30 days ago

me to, its lunch time.

just bookmark this page and you can get back to me.

If you put the xlsm in a zip file that works. I do that all the time

Ok
Microsoft Office Technician: The-PC-Guy, Computer Manager replied 27 days ago

havent heard back from you in a few days. Have you been able to get the xlsm into a zip file

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 26 days ago
I've been busy with something else but will send you a zip file of the actual xlsm (in a sample version).
Would like you to first enter data into the table as if there was no macro involved. Just so you can see how I want it to work when the input is done using the user form (in particular how I want to structure the dependent drop downs)
Microsoft Office Technician: The-PC-Guy, Computer Manager replied 26 days ago

how ever you should like me to make it work, don't worry about actually programming it, but just provide some visual example of what you want it to look like, and how you want the data to be stored. Perhaps include some text description of what you want to have happen when things are done wioth it

See attached and please read Instructions. Especially those on tab "Explaination". - Thanks
Microsoft Office Technician: The-PC-Guy, Computer Manager replied 24 days ago

now im even more confused forget about the named ranges and formulas for the moment.

lets bottom line this

1. the entry form will be used to populate the sample sheet, and the entered data should goto the next available row on that sheet when the enter data button is clicked, yes or no?

2. to populate the drop downs by default when the form is opened it would be popluated by the categories list in column A of the lists sheet, yes or no?

3. Then box under that payee will be populated based on the selection from the category box by using the appropriate column on the lists sheet? Yes / No?

What else is to be populated by the program when the form is opened?

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 23 days ago
1. yes
2. yes
3.yes
Click the DATA ENTRY box to open the user form.
Fill in the boxes & you will see that nothing comes up in the Payee box. Finish the forn & click ENTER - CLOSE and you will see the new data iwll be added to a new row in the table.
Microsoft Office Technician: The-PC-Guy, Computer Manager replied 23 days ago

so esentially the only code you need me to do is for filling in drop downs in the form when it is loaded

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Microsoft Office Technician: The-PC-Guy, Computer Manager replied 23 days ago

actually the only thing you need me to make work is the payee box, and that is based on the selection in the box aobve it,

right?

but it must be done using the named ranges ValData, Counter & UseList. I don't want to add other lists or add all the combinations to the VBA code.
Microsoft Office Technician: The-PC-Guy, Computer Manager replied 23 days ago

depends on the named ranges, I may need to create a new named range to make it work, or may just use some sort of arrays, either way it will work.

I will need to charge an additional fee to do this
