Hi,

Would like to ask the forum members whether cross validation is possible in Excel.

For Eg: If I have names in Sheet1 and I want to validate a cell in Sheet2 to show the names which are there in Sheet1.

Thank You

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.

Yes, I believe you can do this by using named ranges.

Give it a go.

As GorD said, create a named range via --

Insert | Name | Define

Then, for your 2nd sheet, activate --

Data | Validatin | select List from the Allow box | enter your named range in the Source box and check In-cell dropdown
