search field within dropdown

search field within dropdown

Price: FREE

I'm sure this is just a setting somewhere, but I'm having trouble finding it. when I'm in a pivot table, and adjusting the report filter, a drop-down list with all my options appear. I remember when working on other versions of excel there was a search box at the top of this drop-down box. I would be able to type in a portion of what I was looking for, and return only the fields that have what I typed in. the version I'm working on now does not have that "search box".
any help on how I might be able to turn on that setting?

Populate a dropdown field from another sheet.

Free: Yes
Tags: Excel ›

Goal:
I want to auto-populate a field with data from another sheet, but the kicker is the field I want to populate has a dropdown and I want to keep this.
Problem(s):
1) The field being populated has a drop down. Normally I would use a simple VLookup to bring the data in, but the dropdown limits this.
2) I want to keep the dropdown. I want to keep the ability for people to change the populated data, but also want to restrict their options.
3) Have very limited experience with Macros (VBA). Is this going to require VBA?

Search Field

Free: Yes
Tags: Access › Excel Tables

Does anyone have any idea how to create anything similar to a 'search field?'. This would be a means of right-clicking into a field and entering a word or partial word to search for records meeting that criteria or something better.

Currently, this field stores a variety of search words in the format and for example:
INVOICES/RECEIPT/BANK/PAYMENT/

Entering any of these words in that field will return all relevant records but I am not sure this is the best way to do it.

Dynamically load DataValidation List through Source field?

Free: Yes
Tags: Excel ›

I'm using the Data, Data Validation, List option to create a dropdown list in a cell that references a range in my worksheet.
However, the worksheet is very large that populates the dropdown.
Is there a way to filter or dynamically populate the dropdown using a wildcard such as using a function =VLOOKUP("A*", =$J:$J, 1,False) in the Source field to populate the dropdown with just the names that start with "A".

PowerField: tuned search field

Free: No
Tags: Flash › Excel Search

PowerField is a tuned search field. Except from the default search capabilities, Powerfield can also solve mathematical equations, convert between different units and currencies and used as a launcher too!
Main idea:
Search is something which we can not live without ant this is the main reason why every web-page, blog, service and program has a text field for this purpose!
As everything evolves, this textfield has to evolve too. Why do I have to leave a webpage in order to calculate a total or in order to make a currency conversion?
Why I cant do those easy but valuable operations in the same textfield I use for searching? The answer to this question is PowerField!
