Hello all,

I am trying to create a drop down list off all projects from a table, but based on their status. If a project is live, it should not appear in the dropdown list
On sheet 1 I have a table with projects and their status
ProjectStatus
HorseIn Progress
CowIn Progress
PigLive
ChickenOn Hold
DuckLive


on sheet 2, we organise the projects that are in the backlog. Now, projects that have already gone live should not appear here, and should not be an option in the dropdown. in the example above, the drop down list should only show Horse, Cow and Duck.
I've been trying to achieve this in the "Data Validation" --> "list" and then work with IF. However, I've only managed incorrect formulas. Is this at all possible? and if so, how exactly?
 

Excel Facts

What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.
Hi & welcome to MrExcel.
You could add a helper cell on sheet1 like

Cell Formulas

D2:D4D2=UNIQUE(FILTER(Table2[Project],Table2[Status]<>"Live"))
Dynamic array formulas.


And the use
Excel Formula:
