Is it possible to Index a range from a sheet NOT on the workbook, you are to use the drop down list on ??
 

Excel Facts

Highlight Duplicates
Home, Conditional Formatting, Highlight Cells, Duplicate records, OK to add pink formatting to any duplicates in selected range.

Yes, if you use named ranges.

Define a named range to refer to '[other workbook.xls]sheet name'!range

and use that named range as the source for your data validation list.
