Data Validation and drop-down list using IF, AND and what else?

Hi,

I would very much appreciate your help with the following:
- in the same sheet I have a column named "A" with cells A1, A2, A3, A4, one named "B" having cells B1, B2, B3, B4 and one named "C" which is populated with checkboxes.
I need to create a drop-down list which should show the records from "A" but only when 2 conditions are met, one from "B" column and one from "C" (so both conditions should be met).
For instance, when I have "B1" in the column B and checkbox selected in "C1", "A1" should be visible in the drop-down list. For "B2" and checkbox checked in "C2" it should also add "A2" in the drop-down list and so on. If allthe checkboxes are checked in the C column and all the cells populated in B column, the the drop-down list should show "A1", "A2", "A3", "A4". If, inthe example above, the checkbox in "C1" is unchecked, then the value in A1should not be visible in the drop-down list. If the "C1" is checked but novalue in "B1", then the "A1" will not be visible in the drop-down list.

I hope someone can suggest a solution to this.
Thank you very much for help.

Regards,
Alin

hello Alin,

Dim Obj As OLEObject
With ActiveSheet
For Each Obj In .OLEObjects
If TypeOf Obj.Object Is MSForms.CheckBox Then
If Obj.Object.Value And .Cells(Obj.TopLeftCell.Row, 2) = "xx"
Then '---->adapt "xx"
y = .Cells(Obj.TopLeftCell.Row, 1) 'add "y" value in the
drop-down list.
End If

Hello Isabelle,

Thank you very much for your answer. I'm not so familiar with code and programming so I don't know how the code you've sent me should be properly used.. I understood the "logic" of the code but I don't know what and how shouldI adapt it to my worksheet. In case you could enlighten me and explain me what exactly should I change on that code to match it to my worksheet then I would be grateful to you.

Thank you very much anyway.

Regards,
Alin

hello Alin,

one last question before changing the macro, your CheckBox was created
from ActiveX or Form?

Hello again Isabelle,

Hi Isabelle,

Thank you very much for your help with this. I will go through that website and hopefully I will learn how to use the formula you've sent me. :)

Wish you all the best.
