Hur skapar jag en sökbar listruta i Excel?

För en rullgardinsmeny med många värden är det inte lätt att hitta en riktig. Tidigare har vi introducerat en metod för automatisk komplettering av rullgardinsmenyn när du anger den första bokstaven i rullgardinsmenyn. Förutom funktionen för autoslutförande kan du också göra listrutan sökbar för att förbättra arbetseffektiviteten för att hitta rätt värden i listrutan. För att göra rullgardinsmenyn sökbar, gör som nedanstående handledning visar steg för steg.

Skapa en sökbar rullgardinslista i Excel

Till exempel är källdata du behöver för listrutan inom intervallet A2: A9.

Denna metod kräver kombinationsruta istället för rullgardinsmenyn för datavalidering. Gör så här för att skapa en sökbar listruta.

1. Om du inte hittar Utvecklare i menyfliksområdet, aktivera fliken Utvecklare enligt följande.

1). Klicka på i Excel 2010 och 2013 Fil > Tillbehör. Och i Tillbehör dialogrutan, klicka Skräddarsy bandet i den högra rutan, kontrollera Utvecklare och klicka sedan på OK knapp. Se skärmdump:

2). Klicka på i Outlook 2007 office knapp> Excel-alternativ. I Excel-alternativ dialogrutan, klicka Populära i höger fält och markera sedan Visa fliken Utvecklare i menyfliksområdet och slutligen klicka på OK knapp.

2. Efter att ha visat Utvecklare klicka på fliken Utvecklare > Insert > Combo box. Se skärmdump:

3. Rita kombinationsrutan i kalkylbladet och högerklicka på den. Välj Fastigheter från högerklickmenyn.

4. I Fastigheter dialogrutan måste du:

1). Välj Falsk i AutoWordVälj fält;
2). Ange en cell i LinkedCell fält. I det här fallet går vi in ​​i A12;
3). Välj 2-fmMatchEntryNone i MatchEntry fält;
4). Typ Dropdownlist i ListFillRange fält;
5). Stäng Fastigheter dialog ruta. Se skärmdump:

5. Stäng nu designläget med att klicka Utvecklare > Designläge.

6. Välj en tom cell C2, ange formeln nedan i den och tryck på ange nyckel. De drar ner den till cell C9 för att automatiskt fylla de markerade cellerna med samma formel. Se skärmdump:

=--ISNUMBER(IFERROR(SEARCH($A$12,A2,1),""))

Anmärkningar:

1. $ A $ 12 är den cell som du har angett i fältet LinkedCell i steg 4;
2. När du har avslutat ovanstående steg kan du nu testa det. Ange en bokstav C i listrutan, du kommer att se alla celler som innehåller C är fyllda med nummer 1.

7. Välj cell D2, ange nedanstående formel och tryck på ange nyckel. Dra sedan Fill Handle i D2 ner till D9 för att fylla intervallet D3: D9.

=IF(C2=1,COUNTIF($C$2:C2,1),"")

8. Välj cell E2, ange nedanstående formel i den och tryck på ange nyckel. Dra sedan Fill Handle i E2 ner till E9 för att fylla cellerna. Då ser du att cellerna är fyllda som nedan visar skärmdump.

=IFERROR(INDEX($A$2:$A$9,MATCH(ROWS($D$2:D2),$D$2:$D$9,0)),"")

9. Nu måste du skapa ett namnintervall. var god klicka Formel > Definiera namn.

10. I Nytt namn dialogrutan, skriv Dropdownlist in Namn rutan, skriv nedanstående formel i Refererar till och klicka sedan på OK knapp.

=$E$2:INDEX($E$2:$E$9,MAX($D$2:$D$9),1)

11. Aktivera nu designläget genom att klicka Utvecklare > Designläge. Dubbelklicka sedan på kombinationsrutan som du skapade i steg 3 för att öppna Microsoft Visual Basic för applikationer fönster.

12. Kopiera och klistra in nedanstående VBA-kod i kodredigeraren.

VBA-kod: gör sökruta till sökbar

Private Sub ComboBox1_GotFocus()
	ComboBox1.ListFillRange = "DropDownList"
	Me.ComboBox1.DropDown
End Sub

13. Stäng Microsoft Visual Basic för applikationer fönster.

Från och med nu, när du börjar skriva i listrutan, börjar den tvetydig sökning och bara listar relevanta värden i listrutan.

Anmärkningar: När du har stängt och öppnat kalkylbladet tas VBA-koden du skapade i steg 12 bort automatiskt. Så du måste spara den här arbetsboken som Excel-makroaktiverad arbetsbokformat.

    Hi, I made an action list for internal use with automatic email reminders in Excel, based on macro and vba. in a cell you select which person to send the reminder to, in a next cell you select which person to CC etc. Is it a good idea to copy this dropdownlist a few 100 times to every possible entry that I supply ? And is it possible to add a rule: Per row a particular person can only be selected once?

    How can I use this? I have two problem
    1st I would like use ComboBox1 for a full column, so I have D column, it should see empty.
    When I click into a cell in D column example D7 or D8(etc) I should get a Combo in D7 or D8 etc cell and after select just see the result, not the combo too.

    But how can I add combobox dynamically to D2, D4, D11 etc when click or before.
    I need for I can search with typing too, so simple(not active-x) combo is wrong.

    2nd how set padding? - my combo text when I search is not see whole because itt has padding.

    3th if my source is C column, how drop empty elements from list

    I may have misunderstood how this function is supposed to work, but i can only get the combo box search to populate one cell, A12 (using the example from the tutorial). If i click into A13 to populate the next cell with a different value from the drop down, it just replaces what i have in A12 and does not populate A13. I need this search to apply to any cell in column A from A12 down. Have i done something incorrect or does this combo box search only allow a single cell in the workbook to be populated with the result? Will be grateful for any help with this.

    Hello, thanks for the tutorial! I'm having an issue where every time I type in the combo box, "DropDownList1" disappears from the "ListFillRange" property. So long as I don't type in the box, if I retype "DropDownList1" in the property, the box does show suggestions. I have looked everything over and could not find any errors. Is this a common problem, and is there a way to fix it? Thank you for your time!

    I've had an ongoing issue with all documents I've used this method on. A shadow of the drop-down box reappears underneath it each time I click into another cell within the spreadsheet and begin typing. It's beyond just a nuisance because when the shadow drops down, it prevents use of any additional searchable drop-down boxes. Please help!!! This is affecting multiple documents we use throughout our organization.

    I, like Cristina above, would also like to know how to make multiple combo boxes for one sheet. I tried but when I begin typing in the second combobox two things happen: 1. no drop down list appears, and 2. the simple act of typing in combobox2 activates the selection from my original combobox1 and highlights it in the drop down from combobox1. I checked to make sure all of my coding says combobox2 for combobox2 etc. for the other boxes but there is a disconnect that I can't figure out.

      I can't fill in 'DropDownList' in the 'ListFillRange'.... What's the catch? I don't understand the solution of imad.
      Thanks.[/quote]

      I posted this answer above for IMAD and saw this posting down here for MAARTEN so I figured I'd post this for him too.

      I have seen this "how to make an autofill / auto suggest DDL / combo box" on a few different sites and they ALL want you to put "something" in the ListFillRange Properties field [b]BEFORE[/b] they have you [b]create a named range[/b] by clicking Formula > Define Name ....... and the [b]ListFillRange will always go blank in the Properties window[/b] UNTIL you define the name (Formula > Define Name)

      THAT is why i think IMAD, above and MAARTEN below (here) was having the problem - not 100% sure though.

    So I Finally got it to work! I attached the linkedcell to a vlookup and got all the information pulling into a row. I was wondering if there could be any extension on the vba to actually filter the table as we type?

    Mine isn't working. My dropdownlist label was not working in the "properties" for the combobox. Everytime I entered it, it disappeared. So I used "test" instead. I adjusted the macro with the word test instead of dropdowmlist. Let me know if there is something else I can do? Search not working.

      I have seen this "how to make an autofill / auto suggest DDL / combo box" on a few different sites and they ALL want you to put "something" in the ListFillRange field BEFORE they have you create a name range by clicking Formula > Define Name and the ListFillRange will always go blank in the Properties window UNTIL you define the name (Formula > Define Name)

      THAT is why i think IMAD, above and MAARTEN below was having the problem - not 100% sure though.

    For some reason when I click a selection from the drop down list after typing a few characters the drop down main value becomes blank... any idea why this would happen and how to get it to stop?

    I have a command button that I want to click to then put the selection into the next available cell in a given range, but again the value blanks out when I click on it.

      I have the exact same problem. I did everything right but the dropdownlist label just goes blank everytime I press enter. If you figured it out, please do share!

    Excellent post. Could you please explain how do you copy the same drop down list to multiple cells. I want to create an expense report and I want to be able to select a different expense on each row from the same drop down list. Thank you.
