Hello All
I have a worksheet that is a timecard lookalike and have dropdown lists for the start and finish times using DATA VALIDATION with times every quarter of an hour I have to use the mouse at present to click on the down arrow to the right of the cell to start the process of selecting a time and was wondering if there was an easy keyboard equivalent .
Thanks in anticipation

Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.
