Dynamic drop down list with array source

On the beginning I would say it is not good solution. I’ve spent so many hours to improve my VBA code in the end chose simplest solution. Despite Excel will save data from array to sheet via drop down list and dynamic list will be removed is very likely list error will appear when workbook is opening.

Error says: „Removed Feature: Data validation from /xl/worksheets/…”. After my experiences to make proper code I think error will always appeared because array is not constant – it is saved in memory. When Excel is opening dynamic list is trying to get data from the source but source has not been created yet.

I’ve tried to remove dynamic list when Excel closed but even though list has been removed code still was pasted to VBA console. Even dynamic list is not running when Excel starts error is showing. It is strange for me.

The best solution and the simplest one is add source of dynamic drop down list in the Excel sheet. Error “Removed Feature: Data validation from /xl/worksheets/…’ is disappearing.

Adding  dynamic drop down list with array source:

Dim LastRow As Long

‘ Finding last row in needed range
With ThisWorkbook.Sheets("SheetName")
    LastRow = .Cells(.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
End With

' Cleaning previous dynamic drop down list, more columns than real list range
ThisWorkbook.Sheets("PSheetName").Range(Cells(10, 5), Cells(LastRow, 11)).Select
With Selection.Validation
   .Add Type:=xlValidateInputOnly, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator _
   .IgnoreBlank = True
   .InCellDropdown = True
   .ShowInput = True
   .ShowError = True
End With

' Adding dynamic drop down list to column E
ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Plik Wsadowy - Obrotówka").Range(Cells(10, 5), Cells(LastRow, 5)).Select
With Selection.Validation
   .Add Type:=xlValidateList, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator:= _
   xlBetween, Formula1:=Join(AktywaPasywaArray(), ",")
   .IgnoreBlank = True
   .InCellDropdown = True
   .InputTitle = "Please choose item:"
   .ErrorTitle = "Wrong item:"
   .InputMessage = "Please choose item from the list."
   .ErrorMessage = "Typed item is not allowed."
   .ShowInput = True
   .ShowError = True
End With
End Sub

Cleaning drop down list:

' Cleaning previous dynamic drop down list, more columns than real list range
ThisWorkbook.Sheets("PSheetName").Range(Cells(10, 5), Cells(LastRow, 11)).Select
With Selection.Validation
   .Add Type:=xlValidateInputOnly, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator _
   .IgnoreBlank = True
   .InCellDropdown = True
   .ShowInput = True
   .ShowError = True
End With

Delete commas from drop down list. Source element can’t have commas:

Dim dList As String

dList = Range("B14").Value

'~~> Replace comma with a similar looking character
dList = Replace(dList, ",", Chr(130))

With Range("D14").Validation
   .Add Type:=xlValidateList, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator:= _
    xlBetween, Formula1:=dList
   .IgnoreBlank = True
   .InCellDropdown = True
   .InputTitle = ""
   .ErrorTitle = ""
   .InputMessage = ""
   .ErrorMessage = ""
   .ShowInput = True
   .ShowError = True
End With

  87. Thanks for tutorial.
    I creted data validation list with VBA.
    Using the VBA code snippet, drop-down lists that filled with unique and the sorted alphabetically values can be created.
    The items of the drop-down lists can be populated in from the same sheet or from other sheet.
    When a modify is made to list items (add, delete, etc.), this modify can automatically be seen in the drop-down lists.
