data validation across worksheets?
Following procedure to link Data Validation list to another workbook - dialog box message appears "You may not use references to other worksheets or workbooks for data validation criteria". I am using Excel 2003. Any
I would like to post a question to the forum but do not know how to?
I am trying to control a Worksheet name as I have a front sheet which I would like the user to select from a validation list and have some code transport them to a worksheet. Hence the need to control the name of each worksheet so that they can only be one of the list in the validation list?
I'm trying to create a drop-down box containing a list which is stored in a different workbook. I've tried following the instructions in the help files which seem to suggest this is possible but I get the error message "You may not use references to other worksheets or workbooks for Data Validation criteria"
Am I trying to do the impossible?!
I've been able to do it using a forms control but I haven't used these much before so I'd prefer to use data validation if I can.
I've been playing around the list command in validation and I was wondering if there was a way to use ranges from 2 different worksheets to be the source to select from. I've tried using the name box command to name the cells and create a union, and that wont work, and something like the 3-D command wont work because I've already programmed a few macro's that are referencing those
I would like a list for data validation, but the list could be from different tabs.
with validation criteria, allow custom:
all data will be in column A, but different tabs. when I use the above formula, I get an error message indicating that I cannot use references to other worksheets or workbooks for Data Validation criteria. But if I use the formula "=items" it references the list from a different worksheet.
any suggestions to get past this?
