My drop down menus in excel are not working at all. A pale blue outline appears instead of the menu. They were working fine yesterday... any ideas??
 

Excel Facts

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

You stand a better chance at getting a useful response if you explain what "drop down menus" means to you...

- Data Validation?
- ComboBox activex?
- ComboBox Forms?
- AutoFilter custom?
- Pivot Table field filter?
- Custom command bar menu?
- UserForm?
- Something else?

Also, what did you do reasonably immediately before noticing this "pale blue outline", did you run a macro, filter a range, chant an evil incantation, or something else.

Finally, it is always useful to include the version of Excel you are using and the operating system version.
