Working with Macros in Excel Spreadsheets?


Clement Chou
 

Hi all. Just trying to figure something out... in a workbook I'm
reading for a menu guide for an audio device, there are combo boxes to
select the different menus which I want to be displayed as tables.
However when I make my selections, even though the combo boxes are
accurately reflecting my changes, the tables don't switch and stay at
defaults. Is there something I am missing? Or is there another program
I can use to accomplish other than excel 2016? The document is below
just for reference in case someone wants to see what I mean. Thanks!

Hi.

Without looking at your example I would use a vlookup formula

Cheers

You're going to have to explain a bit more than that... because I have
no idea what that is. lol. This same document is perfectly accesible
in excel when using JAWS, however. I just wanted to see if anyone knew
what the issue was and if there was a way to do it with NVDA.

Hi,
To open combo boxes, you need to use Alt + Down Arrow. On my computer, once I hit Enter to make a selection, NVDA stops talking. The easiest way to get it to behave properly is to maximize the sheet. This happens for me after every use of an Excel dropdown. It has happened for a very long time.

I can get the combo boxes to work properly and browse choices, but the
page doesn't seem to ever reflect those changes. Wondering if someone
could look at the document in question?
