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!

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.

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.
