    multiple validation in a single cell

    Is it possible to set multiple validation for a single cell in excel? Its
    pretty straight forward to set a single validation so that a message is
    displayed when incorrect data is entered. However, adding another validation
    seems to delete the old one. Thanks in advance.

    Hi

    you can do some of this under data / validation - custom
    but without more details we can't give you a specific answer.

    Re: multiple validation in a single cell

    the sort of things i'd like 2 do r:

    - validate that the number entered is smaller than 2400
    - validate that the last 2 digits are never greater than 59
    - validate that the the number enetered is smaller/greater than other
    entries made in other cells, etc, etc.

    i can manage to do these individually as u sugested belo, i.e. using data ->
    validation. however, how can i do them all at the same time for a single cell?

    thanks.

    Hi

    well here's the formula to meet the first two criteria ... as you didn't
    specify the rest, hopefully you'll be able to figure it out from here
    choose
    data / validation
    choose
    custom
    type
    =AND(A1<2400,VALUE(RIGHT(A1,2))<=59)
