i am trying to use data validation for a single column.

I already have the list of possible values on another sheet "Analysis"

I can't seem to select this other sheet when choosing my validation list.


Is there a way round this?

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

Name the range and use the name in the validation box instead of the range in normal notation
