    Thumbs up Unique drop down list option for each column

    Hey,

    I am trying to make columns that have one unique option.

    First check this image: https://i.imgur.com/uxwX57G.png

    Like you can see there is the option to take the circle icon in the DDL.

    But I want it only to be possible at 1 cell per column.

    example: the circle icon is selected at the first row cell. When I select the circle icon in the third row. The first row cell gets empty.

    Thanks for reading,

    hope you can help me.

    If I understand correctly you cannot have both a value and a formula in a cell.

    So you select row (column with WI4) with a circle then select ow 3 and add a circle in the same column ?

    If you want row 1 entry cleared you will need to use VBA.

    Re: Unique drop down list option for each column

    It looks like you have used Windings2 font

    Place this code in the SHEET module

    Working example attached
    - in Windings2
    O and P are the tick and cross
    8 is the symbol not to be repeated

    Did you use a combo box to allow the font to be amended in the dropdown?

    Thanks a lot!

    I don't know alot about macro's and visuals basic (and excel :p) but there was one bug in the code.
    => when I want to choose a value it always became an 8.

    I fixed it with a litlte change.

    Re: Unique drop down list option for each column

    Is it also possible to change the 'O', 'P' & '8' to icons in the DDL?

    Re: Unique drop down list option for each column

    Your image shows that you have already got a DDL with icons. To avoid having to re-create...
    Please attach your workbook and I will modify the code to match your file
    - Click on GoAdvanced
    - Look below and click on ManageAttachments
    - Follow instructions on screen

    Re: Unique drop down list option for each column

    I am away from PC (and cannot verify) but from memory the file you attached did not include icons in DDL. I meant the original file with unicode icons in DDL. Sorry for not being clear.

    Per Post#1 picture - with icons

    Dropdown1.jpg

    Per Post#8 attachment - without icons

    Dropdown2.jpg
