    Solution to populate cell with "X" by selecting "R"

    Members Hi,

    I'ld like to prepare a quality sheet - to be updated by my team members - daily.

    The sheet will have the name of the each member along with the key fields - 7, they will be checking.

    Suggest a solution wherin 'X' should be populated in the cell where in they find any issue - 'X' should populate by pressing any specific key on hte key board (may be R) .

    Appreciate your help to determine how to get the "X" populated by pressing R.

    Thks,
    Nirola

    You could do this with a macro and assign a shortcut key of ctrl + r

    use datavalidation, then you always get the right input.

    excel 2007:

    Data => Datavalidation
    Notice my main language is not English.

    I appreciate it, if you reply on my solution.

    If you are satisfied with the solution, please mark the question solved.
