Data Entry Popup List Kit

Use this Data Entry Popup List kit to quickly add popup lists to your workbook. Then, click any cell that has a drop down list, and click the popup to choose items.

This short demo shows how the popups work - it's quick and easy to enter data this way!

Better Than Drop Down Lists

Drop down lists make data entry easier, but these popup lists are even better!

  • Use any font or font size, to make the list easier to read
  • Make the list longer to see more of the items at once
  • No typing necessary -- just scroll, and click the item(s) that you want
  • In a long list, type one letter, to go to that section of the list
  • Set rules per column - multiple selections, or limit to one selection
  • Let users add new items in some columns (or not!)

single or multi select

Basic Excel Skills

To set up the popup lists, you don't need any programming skills. You just need a couple of basic Excel skills, to get your Excel file ready:

  • create named ranges for the list of items that appear in the popup list
  • create drop down lists on the worksheet, where you want to popups to appear

NOTE: The popup lists will work with most dependent drop downs too, if your workbook has those

Easy to Customize

Once your workbook is ready, open the popup kit's Setup file, to quickly customize the popups. When the Setup file opens, you'll see a DVMSP tab at the top of Excel, to guide you through the Setup steps

In the Setup file, it's easy to customize your popups -- just select the options that you want, from drop down lists

customize the code

Then, simply select the workbook and worksheet where you want the popups to appear, and click OK.

The Setup file puts all the pieces into your workbook automatically, and you're ready to go!

Customer Reviews

Here is what our customers say about our Data Entry Popup List kit:

  • "This product is great, easy to use and customize to fit your needs. The autocomplete feature makes it easy for our employees to find what they are looking for in long lists.
    This is a clean simple solution to a problem we were having. By adding a few macros we were able to make a form with drop downs reset after each use.
    Have only had to reach out to get support once but heard back in under 10 minutes with the solution and had it fixed in another 5. What you get for the price is unbeatable. Highly recommended." -- Carl E., ulrich medical USA
