Hi
Im trying to restrict the values that can be entered into a cell depending on another cell. An example of my workbook is Column A = Product Purchased with data validation from a list of meat, fruit, vegetables, other, No. and column B = quantity bought.

I want to validate the cells in column B so that if products were purchased (column A = meat, fruit, vegetables, other) any number can be put in, but if no products were purchased (column A = No) No values can be entered

Im trying to use an if formula within data validation but I cant get it to work.

Any help much appreciated!

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand
