Come eseguire il completamento automatico durante la digitazione nell'elenco a discesa di Excel?

Se si dispone di un elenco a discesa di convalida dei dati con elementi di grandi dimensioni, è necessario scorrere l'elenco verso l'alto e verso il basso solo per trovare quello corretto oppure digitare direttamente l'intera parola nella casella di riepilogo. Se esiste un metodo per consentire il completamento automatico quando si digita la prima lettera nell'elenco a discesa, tutto diventerà più semplice. Questo tutorial fornirà un metodo VBA per aiutarti a raggiungerlo.

Come creare un elenco a discesa con più caselle di controllo in Excel?
Molti utenti di Excel tendono a creare un elenco a discesa con più caselle di controllo per selezionare più elementi dall'elenco alla volta. In realtà, non puoi creare un elenco con più caselle di controllo con la convalida dei dati. In questo tutorial, ti mostreremo due metodi per creare un elenco a discesa con più caselle di controllo in Excel. Questo tutorial fornisce il metodo per risolvere il problema.

Crea un elenco a discesa da un'altra cartella di lavoro in Excel
È abbastanza facile creare un elenco a discesa di convalida dei dati tra i fogli di lavoro all'interno di una cartella di lavoro. Ma se i dati dell'elenco necessari per la convalida dei dati si trovano in un'altra cartella di lavoro, cosa faresti? In questo tutorial imparerai come creare un elenco a discesa da un'altra cartella di lavoro in Excel in dettaglio.

Crea un elenco a discesa ricercabile in Excel
Per un elenco a discesa con numerosi valori, trovarne uno corretto non è un lavoro facile. In precedenza abbiamo introdotto un metodo di completamento automatico dell'elenco a discesa quando si immette la prima lettera nella casella a discesa. Oltre alla funzione di completamento automatico, è anche possibile rendere ricercabile l'elenco a discesa per migliorare l'efficienza lavorativa nel trovare i valori corretti nell'elenco a discesa.

    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*".

    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.

    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?

    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 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??

      crystal · 2 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"?

      Having this same issue. Would love to know if you ever found a solution. Using this code for a database at my place of business. Used by several different employees with the idea of keeping down mistakes made through typos.

    Doesn't work with data validation for me. It seems to be focused on manually input drop down lists, not drop down generated when you use Data Validation.

      Good Day,
      It is a data validation drop down list provided in my case.

    OK got this to work with one problem, 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.

    I think it is something in the properties or VBA but not sure

    I also want to go to right cell after I hit enter as this is how I have it set up


    Thanks

      Dear Carsten,
      Please change the Style field to 2- fmSpecialEffectSunken in the Properties window of the Combo box, and then apply below VBA code. Hope I can help.

      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
      End Select
      End Sub

    Hay alguna forma de mover el Combo? Como se encuentra directamente abajo de la lista desplegable al apretar Enter (una vez seleccionado el dato de dicha lista) te selecciona el Combo y termina mostrándote dos listas.

    This code seems to work sometimes for me - but not consistently. I have a document with multiple lists and it will auto populate most of the time but not all of the time. It seems to have a problem auto populating when there was no information in the cell prior - however data validation extends the entire column. Please advise a fix.

      Dear Alicia
      The code works well in my case. After auto populating, you need to clear the selection in the drop-down list to activate the next auto populate operation.

    I am using this script which works well with text but not with numerals. Here are some screenshots; 1 is the code, 2 is working by alpha, 3 is not working by Number. Ultimately I would like to be able to search by name or number (Col A or Col C). To work around the separate column issue, I copied the same date and transposed the data in those cells.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Dear Robert,
      What do you mean "is not working by number"? The code works well with text and numerals in my case. And I saw the case in your picture 3, the related whole number 40726 is automatically populated when you type 407 into the list box. Please let me know if I missed something in the case.

        Yes, however the data associated with that number (as in photo 2) does not populate.

    Hello, Is there anyway to make the drop down menu only show results that match what you're typing? For example; I am using this to select items for an invoice template and I have a dew wines that start with 'Gaja'. As I type Gaja the top result shows in my list of 20 results but the other options are below it and I have to use the mouse to scroll down to those or type the name of the wine until it is the only option. I would like to type 'G' and then be only shown all items with G. Then type 'Ga' and only see items with GA and so on.

    I must be missing something but where do you specify what cell range actually compromises the dropdown list? I can do this using a combo box rather than activeX but can't get the autocomplete to work with a combo box.

    Hi,

    My drop-down list has an custom format of mmm-yy. When I use the combo drop down it turns my entries i.e Jan-17 into number values . Applying a format doesn't fix that.

      crystal · 3 years ago
      Dear Karan,
      I tried exactly as you mentioned above, but it works well in my case. The combo box still keeps the date format.
      Which Office version do you use?

      crystal · 3 years ago
      Dear Mike,
      You need to change the name of the combo box to TempCombo in the Properties dialog box as we mentioned in above step 5.
