Pardon my ignorance,

-Data-valiation-allow list-source-
(as my source is in other worksheet, excel does not allow me to click the source sheet ), what is the process to select it (without coping the source somewhere in the worksheet )?

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

Hi

Try creating a defined name to cover the data and have the list refer to the defined name.
