    Only allowing someone to sign off on an excel checklist if everything has been answered?

    Hi

    I am creating a checklist that is in excel and our staff has to tick off every box.

    At the end of the checklist, they have to sign off with there initials and a date.

    Is there a way in Excel to have some kind of error message pop up or prevent someone from entering info into a box if it hasn't they haven't answered every previous question?

    I was thinking this should be in the data validation area, but I cant find it.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Rule 03: Cross-posting Without Telling Us

    Your post does not comply with Rule 3 of our Forum RULES. Do not cross-post your question on multiple forums without telling us about your threads on other forums.

    Post a link to any other forums where you have asked the same question.

    Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. The last thing you want to do is waste people's time working on an issue you have already resolved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser) to the cross-post.

    Read this to understand why we ask you to do this.

    I have added the crosspost reference for you today. Please comply with this and all our rules in the future

    Hello ExcelAccountant123 and Welcome to Excel Forum.
    As I do not see an answer on the Mr.Excel site I'll propose one here.
    1. Use the following custom data validation for cell G21: =COUNTIFS(F6:F18,"Question*",G6:G18,"?*")=7
    2. Use the following custom data validation for cell G22: =G21<>""
    Note that Input Messages and Error Alerts, which may be changed to suit, have also been modeled for both cells.
    Let us know if you have any questions.
    Consider taking the time to add to the reputation of everybody that has taken the time to respond to your query.

    It occurs to me that the first formula will not be specific to the answers "Yes" and "No".
    For the formula to the data validation for cell G21 try the following instead: =SUM(COUNTIFS(F6:F18,"Question*",G6:G18,"Yes"),COUNTIFS(F6:F18,"Question*",G6:G18,"No"))=7
    Let us know if you have any questions.
