    Create Data validation list from matched criteria value results

    Please see attached example workbook. Im trying to figure out how to create a Data validation list that will look up two criteria values and populate a list with all results.

    In the example workbook on sheet Main Id like the Data Validation lists in the yellow marked area, for example cell B4 to look up the location value in cell B1 and the product value in cell A4, match these two values (LO01 & BBT20) in sheet Data column A & B and return values of column C and use the results as the Data Valuation list in cell B4 on sheet Main.

    In this example sheet Main cell B4 would result in a Data Validation list of the following;

    DD0012.01
    DD0012.02
    DD0012.05

    Thanks in advance

    Luke

    Hi Luke,

    The topic is called Cascading Validation Lists and Hifliers did point you in the right direction. Now you get to read about it at:

    http://www.excel-user.com/2011/02/ca...ion-lists.html

    I think this is what you are asking for, but if not keep asking and give us an example of what you expect to happen.
    One test is worth a thousand opinions.

    Hi MarvinP

    Ok Luke,

    See the attached that has lots of fancy features. It starts with creating an Advanced Filter on the Data Sheet. I have formula in E2 on the Data sheet so it will filter whatever you have on your Main sheet in B1.
    Then there is an Event code behind the Main sheet, so when you click anywhere on the sheet it will fill in the Product name on the Data Sheet in F2 so the Advanced filter can fire.
    The Advanced Filter will reflect what is your Location and Product and do it's work and give what you want on the Data Sheet in Column K.

    Lastly I've created a Dynamic Named Range (DNR) called "BatchList" which I use as the Validation List.

    Lots of fancy and tricky stuff in here. Hope it works for you.... See the attached.. It should work for much bigger datasets.

    MarvinP,

    Thanks for sharing this info, it took a bit for me to apply it to my official workbook and get everything running as intended and I'm very pleased with the results. However the Main sheet in the workbook has now lost its ability to copy/paste, maybe due to the event code..? Do you have an idea of how to fix this? Or can the event code be changed only to trigger off of the cells needing dropdown lists, so that the remainder of the sheet can still use Copy/Paste?

    Luke

    Re: Create Data validation list from matched criteria value results

    I add the following change to the code and everything is working perfectly. Thanks again for all your help!

    Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    If ActiveCell.Column <> 4 Then Exit Sub
    Sheets("Data").Cells(2, "F") = Cells(Target.Row, "C")
    Call AdvFilter
    End Sub
