What is =ROMAN(40) in Excel?
The Roman numeral for 40 is XL. Bill "MrExcel" Jelen's 40th book was called MrExcel XL.

Make a list of what you want to appear in the dropdown. It's best to name the list (Insert Name Define) say TheList.

Select the cell where you want the drop down and choose Data, Validation from the menu. In the allow box choose List. In the Source box type =TheList and click OK.
