Hi ,

I want two things in my data validation file.

1. My drop down contains many values i want to quickly select values ex. I have values starting with A, B, C, D, X...
I want to select values starting with X by pressing X ... same logic for all the other values.

2. New values in drop down Ex. I have Values A,B,C exist in List I want to add new values say M, i want it to be added in the fixed list of values by having proposal options in the drop down where i can write my new values so that it can be added the list as well as current value.

I hope you all understand it properly and reply it.

Regards,
Prangnesh

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.
