Hi All

Just a quick one... Just wondering whether it is possible to have data validation 1 sheet and the source data on another?

If so, how??

Thanks

Andrew

I've tried this, but now the cell in which the validation is allows someone to overwrite in that cell without giving an error.

I've password protected my worksheet it still allows/accepts typed in data.

I only want to allow the lists. Is there a way to block this?
