    Post Conditional Data Validation Amount

    Hey ..
    I've been having this issue. I've tried alot of things but nothing seems to work.

    In Column G I've a Data Validation Drop Down List with "BB" And "BS" as two options. For every "BB" or "BS" in Column G there is an Amount in Column H
    .

    What I want is.

    Incase the option "BS" is selected in Column G only an amount greater than 0 can be entered in Column H.
    Incase the option "BB" is selected in Column H only an amount less than 0 can be entered in Column H.

    Is this possible using Data Validation or any other technique ?

    hi Meunixx, welcome to the forum. yes you can use Data Validation. say you want it in H2:H10.
    1. select from H2:H10
    2. go to Data -> Data Validation -> Allow: Custom -> Formula:
    =IF(G2="BB",H2>0,H2<0)
    3. press OK & you are done

    Re: Conditional Data Validation Amount

    Sir,

    The problem is solved.
    But now there seems to be another problem.

    Suppose if I enter "BB" in column G and enter an amount less than 0 in Column H it'll accept it.
    But then after entering a (-) amount I change "BB" to "BS" its still accepting it without giving any error.

    Is it possible to plugin this loophole ?
