Drop Down list with colours
Is there any way in Excel to create a drop down list which contains colours?
For example to show RAG status (i.e. Red Amber Green).
At the moment I can only show text in the drop down list.
Would anyone know a way of working around this?
Thanks Roger, and Chip, for replying.
I was playing around with it and found that I could conditionally format the
cell depending on the text selected - so if I choose "RED" it goes red. It's
just about enough to work for what I intend to use it for, but I'll
experiment with your suggestion in case I need to develop thi...Drag and drop with CRichEditCtrl
I have an application that makes heavy use of the rich edit control.
One of the things I needed to do was to customize text when it is
pasted or dropped onto the rich edit control. This wasn't too hard to
do: I have an object implementing IRichEditOleCallback attached to the
rich edit, and in the QueryAcceptData() method I modify the data as
needed before adding it to the control.
My problem comes with drag and drop, specifically with the "move" drop
operation. Following the MSDN documentation, my QueryAcceptData()
method returns S_FALSE to indicate that it's processed the d...Drag n' Drop emails to a Java application
We are developing a Java application where we want to import information
received in e-mails. The email client are Outlook 2003 (at least for
now). The best way would be to be able to drag the e-mail to the Java
app and then access/parse the e-mail in the Java app.
I have searched the web but can not find anything useful.
Do I have to use COM and/or OLE for doing such operations?
Please help me!!
...Drop Downs and lookups from other sheets
I have a workbook where the front sheet is a display page and the three
sheets behind are reserved for data tables. What I want to do is have one
cell in the front page which is a drop down and selects names from one of the
tables on the other sheets. From there I can use Vlookup to populate the
info from the tables on the front page based on that name. The problem is I

I'm exporting data as XML from an Excel spreadsheet. Cells with plain
text in them work fine, but cells with a selection from a drop-down list do
not. The XML file shows everything is there, except data from cells with
drop-down selections. No error message generated, just no trace of the data.
Fixed the problem. Found out that the drop-downs were actually objects
placed on top of the cell, the options were not coded into the cells

I created a drop down list using the data, validation menu. It works well.
However, I only have two items in the list and I am wondering if there is a
better way to alternate between them. With the drop down list it takes a
couple of clicks. First you select the cell, then you click to drop down the
list, then you highlight the item, then you click on it.
Is there a way to select the alternate item with fewer clicks?
You need only click the cell, click the dropdown button, then click the desired item. Three

You can use a template for new workbooks and new sheets that includes the
headers and footers you want. See Help for more information. But this will
affect only new workbooks and worksheets, not existing ones. For them, you'll
have to change each one manually.

You can use a CImageList and store a drag image. Look at functions
like CImageList ::BeginDrag, CImageList::BeginDrag |
