    Count sheet with combo dropdown

    Hello,

    I work as an engineering intern, and one of my assignments is to record the number of fixtures on a pipe stretch. I thought I could save some time by making a dropdown-menu, able to select different kind of fixtures at a point and either assign a count to this (somehow from the dropdown menu). Im struggling with multiple selections. I can try to illustrate what i have in mind:

    Type of fixture at point:
    Sink---------------------------------> Hot, cold or both --------------------------> Count
    Shower
    Cleaning sink.
    etc.

    Is it possible to somehow get a table out of this, where I can extract the amount quicker than listing all the fixtures and write down the count for each? If you have other suggestions to counting these items I would gladly hear them.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi and Welcome

    Interesting problem.

    I have developed a solution for you using four macros.

    Change A1 to add a fixture

    Click on Column B to Delete a Fixture.

    Two Macros are in a standard macro module.

    Select the developer tab
    Select view and then project explorer
    Select your project
    Select insert and then module
    Paste this code in the module that opens and close it.

    The other two macros go in a sheet specific macro module.

    Right Click On Your Sheet Name At the Bottom Of Excel and Select View Code
    Paste this code in the module that opens and close it.
