Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

You can't refer to an "address" on another sheet.
If you want to refer to range on another sheet then you must give that range a RangeName and refer to that rangename in the source box.

Click on Data-Validation-Allow - List- Source =rangename

OK,
I have been able to start the list box and reference the list I want in the list box.
Now,
Is this possible? I would like to option to pick more than one item from the list box and have it print in a cell below, and continue on for x number of choices.
This way I can write a macro to read this list and and pull the associated data out of a another worksheet.
Any help would be appreciated!
Thank you
