Is there a way to define the source of a dropdown list to show available tables in a database?

Any help is appreciated!

You could probably have a macro run to get that information. What kind of a database are we talking about? Is the database in a fixed location? Is the workbook to be used on different computers, and if it is, do they all have access to the database using the same path?
