Hello, I'm trying to make a drop down list that shows only items in column A that have > 0 value in column B. For example, my column A has items A, B, C, D, E, F with values in column B as 0, 22, 20, 50, 0, and 50. I want to have a drop down list (Data Validation list) that would only show B, C, D, F because they have a value over 0. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

if you want a VBA solution, this should get you started. It is by no means robust, but the general idea is there. You would have to call this from some event (worksheet change within that target table etc).

Code:
Option Explicit

Sub cond_DataVal()

Dim sourceRange As Range, tCell As Range, outputRange As Range, valRange As Range
Dim excludeVals, tVar
Dim tStr As String, valStr As String

On Error GoTo exitSub


With ActiveSheet
    Set valRange = .Range("A2:A15") 'or whatever
    Set sourceRange = valRange.offSet(0, 1)
    Set outputRange = .Range("C2")
    excludeVals = Array(0)
    
    
    'this is a loopy and slow way to do this, but it shouldnt be TOO slow
    For Each tCell In sourceRange
        tStr = CStr(tCell.Value2)
        For Each tVar In excludeVals
            If tStr = CStr(tVar) Then GoTo nxtCell
        Next
        
        valStr = valStr & tCell.offSet(0, -1) & ","
nxtCell:
    Next
    
    'this adds the data validation
    With outputRange.Validation
        .Delete
        .Add Type:=xlValidateList, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator:= _
        xlBetween, Formula1:=Left$(valStr, Len(valStr) - 1)
    End With

End With
exitSub:
End Sub
