Completamento automatico durante la digitazione nell'elenco a discesa con uno strumento straordinario

Poiché VBA è difficile da gestire per molti utenti di Excel, qui consigliamo il Elenco a discesa ricercabile caratteristica di Kutools for Excel per aiutarti a completare facilmente un elenco a discesa automaticamente quando digiti il ​​primo carattere.

Note:: prima di applicare la funzione, assicurati di aver creato elenchi a discesa nel foglio di lavoro. In questo caso, gli elenchi a discesa vengono inseriti in D3:D9.

1. Clic Kutools > Menu `A tendina > Elenco a discesa ricercabile > Impostazioni.

2. Nel spuntare Elenco a discesa ricercabile finestra di dialogo, è necessario effettuare le seguenti impostazioni.

2.1) nel Applica a sezione, specificare un intervallo o un foglio di lavoro in cui si desidera applicare la funzione di elenco a discesa ricercabile;
Tip: Dopo aver selezionato Ambito specificato pulsante di opzione, puoi scegliere Foglio di lavoro corrente, Cartella di lavoro corrente or Tutte le cartelle di lavoro dall'elenco a discesa in base alle proprie esigenze.
2.2) nel Opzioni sezione, scegli il file Corrisponde solo all'inizio della parola opzione o il Che tiene conto del maiuscolo o minuscolo opzione o entrambi;
Corrisponde solo all'inizio della parola: Seleziona questa opzione, vengono visualizzati solo gli elementi che iniziano con il carattere digitato e il primo elemento abbinato verrà completato automaticamente nella casella di riepilogo. Deseleziona questa opzione per visualizzare gli elementi che contengono il carattere digitato.
Che tiene conto del maiuscolo o minuscolo: selezionare questa opzione per eseguire la corrispondenza con distinzione tra maiuscole e minuscole con i caratteri di digitazione.
2.3) Fare clic OK.

3. Dopo aver terminato le impostazioni, è necessario abilitare la funzione facendo clic su Kutools > Menu `A tendina > Elenco a discesa ricercabile > Abilita elenco a discesa ricercabile.

Ora, quando fai clic sulla cella dell'elenco a discesa, viene visualizzata una casella di riepilogo con tutti gli elementi. Devi solo digitare un carattere nella casella di testo per visualizzare tutti gli elementi corrispondenti e utilizzare il Up or giù freccia per selezionare l'elemento che ti serve o lascia che il primo elemento corrispondente riempia automaticamente la casella di riepilogo, quindi premi il tasto Entra per completare automaticamente la cella dell'elenco a discesa con l'elemento corrispondente. Guarda la demo qui sotto.

Fare clic per saperne di più su questa funzione.

    Yeah, basically completely useless.  Want the cell to auto-complete when typing in a cell using list data validation.
    Tried this, and now I have to start over from scratch because I can't Undo it.  Thanks.

    It works as it should be except for two things, first, there is no validation after insertion. i.e. if I typed anything at the combo then clicked enter it will accept the typed value while it should not do this since the data validation is being used to prevent such behaviors and make sure that the entered data is from selected range. Second, at the data validation list, sometimes I use big range with empty cells and select ignore empty at validation list but the combo takes all the range and shows it, will be nice to remove the empty cells from the combo range.

    Thanks & hope you can implement these things to make it perfect.

    If you use this method with one combobox/sheet i guess it's flawless.

    I used this method with three comboboxes on one sheet with 3 different ListFillRange.
    Dropdown keep showing up on different combobox than what i'm typing in.
    1. I type and select correctly from the first.
    2. When i go to second combo, the third dropdown pops up.(I have to select the"", as it is still empty)
    then i can search my second combobox.
    3. When i go to the third, the first dropdown pops up, I reselect the only item(as there is only one that was already selected in the first step)
    After this i can add the content in the third dropdown.



    All subs are on sheet1's vba window.
    Now i'm trying to spit code in different modules, but can't really make it work.
    Search works, but i always have to push the dropdown arrow to see available results to select. Dropdown doesn't pop up at all.

    using 365, but i have to make "sheet" work on excel 2010

        Hi there, this is a great solution, but for some reason, in the original code, the combox was hidden when the cell with the data validation was not active, and only visible when the cell was selected.
        With this code, we get undo back, which is perfect, but the combox does not auto-hide again when you click off.
        Do you have a solution for this?

        Thanks,

        Alistair

      Hi Sandeep Sharma,
      In the Properties dialog box of the Combo box (step 5 of this tutorial), please find the ListRows field and then change the number 8 to 12 under the Alphabetic tab.

    How can I Use Tab/Arrows/Enter to move to another cell once the current cell is filled? Thanks

      crystal · 1 years ago
      Hi Jonas,
      The Tab key and the Enter key can work normally. But can't help with the Arrows yet. Sorry for the inconvenience.

        Hi crystal this works great, but I cannot tab or enter to move to the next cell. I have found no command that lets me move to another cell. I have to click the next cell to categorize the column. I have used the code updated 2020/05/19 above in the comments. Please help :)

    Hi Guys, are you able to share a code which i can use so that the autocomplete is used on the same column i.e H in every sheet within the workbook.
    • To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.
      crystal · 1 years ago
      Hi,
      If you only want the column H to be affected, please try the below VBA code. But it is only available in one worksheet. For multiple sheets, you need to add the code to each sheet code window. Hope I can help.

      Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
      'Update by Extendoffice: 2019/8/14
      Dim xCombox As OLEObject
      Dim xStr As String
      Dim xWs As Worksheet
      Dim xArr
      Dim xRgStr As String
      Dim xRg As Range
      xRgStr = "H:H"

      Set xWs = Application.ActiveSheet
      On Error Resume Next
      Set xCombox = xWs.OLEObjects("TempCombo")
      With xCombox
      .ListFillRange = ""
      .LinkedCell = ""
      .Visible = False
      End With
      Set xRg = Intersect(Range(xRgStr), Target)
      If xRg Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
      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
      With xCombox
      .Visible = True
      .Left = Target.Left
      .Top = Target.Top
      .Width = Target.Width + 5
      .Height = Target.Height + 5
      .ListFillRange = xStr
      If .ListFillRange = "" Then
      xArr = Split(xStr, ",")
      Me.TempCombo.List = xArr
      End If
      .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)
      Select Case KeyCode
      Case 9
      Application.ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Activate
      Case 13
      Application.ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Activate
      End Select
      End Sub

    Love this! Thanks so much. Got a small issue though. I like to tab from one cell to the next, but when I get to the cell with the drop down list, I can tab into the cell with no problem, but once I'm in, it won't let me tab back out. I have to physically move the mouse over and click into the next cell. Any fix for this? Kind of disrupts my rhythm, which is why I loved this autocomplete function in the first place. ;o)

    This is a great find, however, I have one little issue: I like to tab through the cells as I am entering data. I can tab into the cell with the drop down menu just fine, but once I'm in that cell, it stops me from exiting the cell with a tab. I have to physically move the mouse to the next cell and click on it. Is there a fix to be able to simply tab in and tab out of the autocomplete cell? Thanks.

      Hi Jerome,
      The Tab key still works well in my case after applying the code. Which Excel version are you using?

    I am using this code and a data validation with drop down lists for easy acces to what i need because i need the data to remain in excel boxes for other formulas to use it. However one of the combo boxes has almost 1500 items in the drop down and I'd like the user to be able to start typing a word in the combo box and get a list of suggestions to choose from based on the word entered for example if they type 'joh' in the combo box I want to show them a list of all the choices in the drop down that contains 'joh' so they can select the one they want. Now i can find the first 'joh' but it shows me like a list with what is near this 'joh', not specific all that contain 'joh'. Can i modify this code so can be used for what i want? Thank you and please help

    The Combobox works fine when 1-MatchEntryComplete is selected ,when I changed the selection to 2-fmMatchEntryNone in the Combobox properties it did not work ,i.e It does not auto select as I start typing. Is there a fix for this?
    • To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.
      crystal · 1 years ago
      Hi Don P.
      Only the 1-MatchEntryComplete option can make it work. Sorry can't help you for that.

      Hi Kuku,
      When the drop down list auto prompt, you can see the cursor displays inside the cell. It allows you to manually select the contents in the cell and then copy and paste with shortcut keys. Please have a try. Thank you for your comment.

      Actually when the drop down list auto prompt, you can see the cursor displays inside the cell. It allows you to manually select the contents in the cell and then copy and paste with shortcut keys. Please have a try. Thank you for your comment.

    hi when i use the VBA code on a column that has dates it changes it to a number. can anyone help
    • To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.
      crystal · 2 years ago
      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.
