I have created a column which has in-cell drop-down menu referring to another list. I used Data Validation to do this. It worked. but today when I opened up the workbook again, the dropdown button has disappeared. All the settings are the same. i can not figure out why. please help. Thanks!

Format cells as currency
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+4 to format cells as currency. (Shift 4 is the $ sign).
Hi there

Frequent problem, at least up to Excel2000 that I use. Sometimes you can get the list dropdown arrow back by juggling around with window minimising, but most times you just have to close down Excel and reopen it.

Thanks. I ended up copy the whole sheets to another blank workbook. and it works now. it seems something /the link was broken in the original sheet.
