I'm having a problem with my cell validation. I either want the cell to be Blank or contain "x". I've selected <custom>, checked the ignore Blanks box and entered x for formula. After appying, the cell appears to work until any value is entered at which time the error window is displayed. What is wrong with this?

Select "List" from the Allow options, then uncheck the In-cell dropdown box. In the Source field put simply "x" (without quotes)
