Hoe automatisch aanvullen tijdens het typen in de vervolgkeuzelijst Excel?

Als u een vervolgkeuzelijst voor gegevensvalidatie heeft met grote items, moet u omhoog en omlaag scrollen in de lijst om de juiste te vinden, of u kunt het hele woord rechtstreeks in de keuzelijst typen. Als er een methode is om automatisch aanvullen toe te staan ​​bij het typen van de eerste letter in de vervolgkeuzelijst, wordt alles gemakkelijker. Deze tutorial biedt een VBA-methode om u te helpen dit te bereiken.

1. Open het werkblad met de cel van de vervolgkeuzelijst die u automatisch wilt laten aanvullen.

2. Voordat u een keuzelijst met invoervak ​​invoegt, moet u het tabblad Ontwikkelaar aan het Excel-lint toevoegen. Als het tabblad Ontwikkelaar op uw lint wordt weergegeven, ga naar stap 3. Ga anders als volgt te werk: Klik op Dien in > Opties om de te openen Opties venster. In deze Excel-opties venster klikt Lint aanpassen Controleer in het linkerdeelvenster het Ontwikkelaar vak en klik vervolgens op het OK knop. Zie screenshot:

3. klikken Ontwikkelaar > Invoegen > Combo Box (ActiveX-besturingselement).

4. Teken een keuzelijst met invoervak ​​in het huidige werkblad. Klik er met de rechtermuisknop op en selecteer Woningaanbod vanuit het rechtsklikmenu.

5. In de Woningaanbod dialoogvenster, vervangt u de originele tekst in het (Naam) veld met TempCombo.

6. Zet de ... uit Ontwerpmodus door te klikken Ontwikkelaar > Ontwerpmodus.

Pas vervolgens de onderstaande VBA-code toe

7. Klik met de rechtermuisknop op de huidige bladtab en klik Bekijk code vanuit het contextmenu. Zie screenshot:

8. In de opening Microsoft Visual Basic voor toepassingen venster, kopieer en plak de onderstaande VBA-code in het codevenster van het werkblad.

    Dim xCombox As OLEObject
    Dim xStr As String
    Dim xWs As Worksheet
    Dim xArr
    
    Set xWs = Application.ActiveSheet
    On Error Resume Next
    Set xCombox = xWs.OLEObjects("TempCombo")
    With xCombox

    End With
    If Target.Validation.Type = 3 Then
        Target.Validation.InCellDropdown = False
        Cancel = True
        xStr = Target.Validation.Formula1
        xStr = Right(xStr, Len(xStr) - 1)
        If xStr = "" Then Exit Sub
        With xCombox
            .Visible = True
            .Left = Target.Left
            .Top = Target.Top
            .Width = Target.Width + 5
            .Height = Target.Height + 5
            .ListFillRange = xStr
            If .ListFillRange = "" Then
                xArr = Split(xStr, ",")
                Me.TempCombo.List = xArr
            End If
            .LinkedCell = Target.Address
        End With
        xCombox.Activate
        Me.TempCombo.DropDown
    End If
End Sub
Private Sub TempCombo_KeyDown(ByVal KeyCode As MSForms.ReturnInteger, ByVal Shift As Integer)
    Select Case KeyCode
        Case 9
            Application.ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Activate
        Case 13
            Application.ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Activate
    End Select
End Sub

9. druk op anders + Q toetsen tegelijk om het Microsoft Visual Basic-toepassingen venster.

Vanaf nu, wanneer u op een vervolgkeuzelijstcel klikt, wordt de vervolgkeuzelijst automatisch gevraagd. U kunt beginnen met het typen van de letter om het corresponderende item automatisch in de geselecteerde cel te laten voltooien. Zie screenshot:

Hoe maak ik een vervolgkeuzelijst met meerdere selectievakjes in Excel?
Veel Excel-gebruikers hebben de neiging om een ​​vervolgkeuzelijst te maken met meerdere selectievakjes om meerdere items uit de lijst per keer te selecteren. Eigenlijk kunt u met Gegevensvalidatie geen lijst met meerdere selectievakjes maken. In deze zelfstudie laten we u twee methoden zien om een ​​vervolgkeuzelijst met meerdere selectievakjes in Excel te maken. Deze tutorial biedt de methode om het probleem op te lossen.

Maak een vervolgkeuzelijst vanuit een andere werkmap in Excel
Het is vrij eenvoudig om een ​​vervolgkeuzelijst voor gegevensvalidatie te maken tussen werkbladen in een werkmap. Maar wat zou u doen als de lijstgegevens die u nodig hebt voor de gegevensvalidatie in een andere werkmap terechtkomen? In deze zelfstudie leert u hoe u in detail een vervolgkeuzelijst kunt maken vanuit een andere werkmap in Excel.

Maak een doorzoekbare vervolgkeuzelijst in Excel
Voor een vervolgkeuzelijst met talloze waarden is het vinden van een goede geen gemakkelijke taak. Eerder hebben we een methode geïntroduceerd voor het automatisch aanvullen van de vervolgkeuzelijst wanneer u de eerste letter in de vervolgkeuzelijst invoert. Naast de functie voor automatisch aanvullen, kunt u de vervolgkeuzelijst ook doorzoekbaar maken om de werkefficiëntie te verbeteren door de juiste waarden in de vervolgkeuzelijst te vinden. Probeer de methode in deze tutorial om de vervolgkeuzelijst doorzoekbaar te maken.

Vul automatisch andere cellen in bij het selecteren van waarden in de vervolgkeuzelijst van Excel
Stel dat u een vervolgkeuzelijst heeft gemaakt op basis van de waarden in celbereik B8: B14. Wanneer u een waarde in de vervolgkeuzelijst selecteert, wilt u dat de overeenkomstige waarden in celbereik C8: C14 automatisch in een geselecteerde cel worden ingevuld. Om het probleem op te lossen, zullen de methoden in deze tutorial je een plezier doen.

    It works as it should be except for two things, first, there is no validation after insertion. i.e. if I typed anything at the combo then clicked enter it will accept the typed value while it should not do this since the data validation is being used to prevent such behaviors and make sure that the entered data is from selected range. Second, at the data validation list, sometimes I use big range with empty cells and select ignore empty at validation list but the combo takes all the range and shows it, will be nice to remove the empty cells from the combo range.

    Thanks & hope you can implement these things to make it perfect.

    If you use this method with one combobox/sheet i guess it's flawless.

    I used this method with three comboboxes on one sheet with 3 different ListFillRange.
    Dropdown keep showing up on different combobox than what i'm typing in.
    1. I type and select correctly from the first.
    2. When i go to second combo, the third dropdown pops up.(I have to select the"", as it is still empty)
    then i can search my second combobox.
    3. When i go to the third, the first dropdown pops up, I reselect the only item(as there is only one that was already selected in the first step)
    After this i can add the content in the third dropdown.



    All subs are on sheet1's vba window.
    Now i'm trying to spit code in different modules, but can't really make it work.
    Search works, but i always have to push the dropdown arrow to see available results to select. Dropdown doesn't pop up at all.

    using 365, but i have to make "sheet" work on excel 2010

        Hi there, this is a great solution, but for some reason, in the original code, the combox was hidden when the cell with the data validation was not active, and only visible when the cell was selected.
        With this code, we get undo back, which is perfect, but the combox does not auto-hide again when you click off.
        Do you have a solution for this?

        Thanks,

    Love this! Thanks so much. Got a small issue though. I like to tab from one cell to the next, but when I get to the cell with the drop down list, I can tab into the cell with no problem, but once I'm in, it won't let me tab back out. I have to physically move the mouse over and click into the next cell. Any fix for this? Kind of disrupts my rhythm, which is why I loved this autocomplete function in the first place. ;o)

    This is a great find, however, I have one little issue: I like to tab through the cells as I am entering data. I can tab into the cell with the drop down menu just fine, but once I'm in that cell, it stops me from exiting the cell with a tab. I have to physically move the mouse to the next cell and click on it. Is there a fix to be able to simply tab in and tab out of the autocomplete cell? Thanks.

      Hi Jerome,
      The Tab key still works well in my case after applying the code. Which Excel version are you using?

    I am using this code and a data validation with drop down lists for easy acces to what i need because i need the data to remain in excel boxes for other formulas to use it. However one of the combo boxes has almost 1500 items in the drop down and I'd like the user to be able to start typing a word in the combo box and get a list of suggestions to choose from based on the word entered for example if they type 'joh' in the combo box I want to show them a list of all the choices in the drop down that contains 'joh' so they can select the one they want. Now i can find the first 'joh' but it shows me like a list with what is near this 'joh', not specific all that contain 'joh'. Can i modify this code so can be used for what i want? Thank you and please help

    The Combobox works fine when 1-MatchEntryComplete is selected ,when I changed the selection to 2-fmMatchEntryNone in the Combobox properties it did not work ,i.e It does not auto select as I start typing. Is there a fix for this?

      Hi Don P.
      Only the 1-MatchEntryComplete option can make it work. Sorry can't help you for that.

      Hi Kuku,
      When the drop down list auto prompt, you can see the cursor displays inside the cell. It allows you to manually select the contents in the cell and then copy and paste with shortcut keys. Please have a try. Thank you for your comment.

      Hi Charlis,
      Actually when the drop down list auto prompt, you can see the cursor displays inside the cell. It allows you to manually select the contents in the cell and then copy and paste with shortcut keys. Please have a try. Thank you for your comment.

    Hey guys, I'm having an issue where it doesn't let me type what I want to search for letter by letter. It just shows the whole word automatically and highlighted, and I start to type it moves it to the next closest word. is there anyway to not have it highlight the whole thing?

    hi when i use the VBA code on a column that has dates it changes it to a number. can anyone help
    • To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.
      crystal · 1 years ago
      Hi Nadine,
      The problem didn't cause by the code.
      You need to format the column cells to date format before or after creating the drop-down list.

    Hi, Thaks for the code. Could I check if this formula can include an ignore blank function? This code took away my ignore blank function for my data validation. Please advise thanks

    Hey, thanks for this! I have managed to get it to work, but like in Cartson's comment: I need to keep selections to the list. It populates ok, but if I enter a word not in the list, it still accepts it. The VBA code you replied with doesn't work unfortunately


    Like in Data Validation/locked cell, can it create some error or not allow the typed entry not in the list?


    Any help is much appreciated

      Hi Ben,
      Sorry there are mistakes in the previous reply.
      After inserting the combo box, open its Properties window, change the Name to TempCombo, and then select 2 - fmStyleDropDownList from the Style field, and finally apply the below code. From now on, it won't allow entering word not in the list.

      Dim xRg As Range
      Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
      Dim xCombox As OLEObject
      Dim xStr As String
      Dim I As Long
      Dim xWs As Worksheet
      Set xWs = Application.ActiveSheet
      On Error Resume Next
      Set xCombox = xWs.OLEObjects("TempCombo")
      With xCombox
      .ListFillRange = ""
      .LinkedCell = ""
      .Visible = False
      End With
      If Target.Validation.Type = 3 Then
      Target.Validation.InCellDropdown = False
      Cancel = True
      xStr = Target.Validation.Formula1
      xStr = Right(xStr, Len(xStr) - 1)
      If xStr = "" Then Exit Sub
      Set xRg = Target
      With xCombox
      .Visible = True
      .Left = Target.Left
      .Top = Target.Top
      .Width = Target.Width + 5
      .Height = Target.Height + 5
      .ListFillRange = xStr
      .LinkedCell = Target.Address
      End With
      xCombox.Activate
      Me.TempCombo.DropDown
      End If
      End Sub
      Private Sub TempCombo_KeyDown(ByVal KeyCode As MSForms.ReturnInteger, ByVal Shift As Integer)
      Dim xSel As Range
      On Error Resume Next
      Select Case KeyCode
      Case 13
      xRg.Offset(0, 1).Select
      End Select
      End Sub

        Hi Cristal, great answer. Now if on the same worksheet I want to add another combo box that calls data from a third sheet, how would the code look like as I tried and got no result. I will appreciate your support. Donald
