Hi Everyone,

The sheet is "Raw" and the range is AB21:AB300
i need a macro that is triggered when someone selects one of the following options from a dropdown box
Option 1
Option 2
Option 3
Option 4
Option 5


So heres what i need,

If some selects any ofther data from the dropdown box in the above range do nothing,
if they select one on the 5 options above then
open an input box Saying "Please Name This Section?"
and an input area to type a tile like "home"
then whatever they type get put into the cell they selected the dropdown in?

hope thats clear,
please help if you know how to do this

Thanks

Tony
 

Excel Facts

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

Some clarification questions.
If "Option 1", "Option 2", "Option 3", "Option 4", or "Option 5" is typed into a cell in the range AB21:AB300, you need an input box to pop up.
Is this what you mean?
And after the user types something into the input box, what action do you need with the value typed in?

Hi,
Cell Range AB21:Ab300 are dropdown boxes that include the options of "Option 1", "Option 2", "Option 3", "Option 4", or "Option 5" as well as other option,
now the idea is because we dont want to have a huge list of all possible words we use the "Option" as blank titale and then create our own title

So if someone selects "Option 1" it says what name do you want to use and changes the cell that had "Option 1" to the wording they input into the input box?

hope thats clearer

thanks

Tony

Sorry, I'm still not clear about what you want the macro to do.
It sounds to me like you just want the macro to replace "Option 1" with what the user types into the input box.
This is no different from just when he or she types the value into the cell directly, so I guess this isn't what you're looking for.
Do you mean you have a list of replacement expressions for each option and when an option is selected, replace it with the wording that has previously been prepared?
But in that case, you don't need an input box.
Can you maybe explain what you want to do using images or something?

Hi, I think I've made a hash of explaining this,

nevermind I'm going to try a different option for now,
thanks for trying to help
