Thread: Creating a VBA code for a cell with a dropdown list to allow multiple selections

    Creating a VBA code for a cell with a dropdown list to allow multiple selections

    I have a worksheet where I have several vba codes built in already, but I have one cell where I put a dropdown list that I need it to be able to select multiple items from the checklist. Every code I have tried only allows me to localize the solution to once cell, but I need it to go down the whole column. Whenever I have tried to make it a column selection it still only works in the one cell. The column I need it in is I starting in I2 and going down the rest of the column. I already have a data validation in the cells so the checklist works in all of them for a single selection. Any help would be awesome.

    I think you'll need to attach a workbook containing your setup and what you want.

    Creating a VBA code for a cell with a dropdown list to allow multiple selections

    I was unable to upload the file for whatever reason it would never show in the attachment tool so I built a quick replica below and then pasted my current VBA codes. In Column A (Far left) I have a dropdown with the options I put in there. I also have a vba code in there to allow a cut and past based on a trigger of the selection status to move it to one of the 5 workbook tabs (later I will need to figure out how to make more than just the completed option work to include Denied and Mistake-Abandoned). The tabs I have from left to right are Overview, Pending, Completed, Denied, Mistake-Abandoned. In column I there is another dropdown with the options I pasted in there as well. This dropdown needs to be able to have multiple selections made instead of just making the selection once. I need to be able to add steps as they progress all localized to one cell. I used data validation for the dropdown and was able to get it working in cell I2 but have been unable to make that coding go all the way down column I. I need it to be in every cell in column I with the same dropdown options. The columns are A-N.
