Hi there, I've a databse of music, songs, artists and albums, and I want to be able to rate them using a "star" system like that used in such programs as iTunes.

Can this be done and how?

Regards.

In part of the sheet you're not going to use type the values you want to be able to select.

For example using column C

C1 - "Awesome"
C2 - "Good"
C3 - "Average"
C4 - "Poor"
C5 - "Wish I was deaf"

For all the cells you want to turn into a drop down menu, hen go to the data menu and select validation.

One of the options will be "List", then select the cells you just typed into.

cbzdmh,

I just found that you don't need to put the values in cells. You can just go to data validation - List and enter them into the source box separated by a comma

Awesome,Good,Average,Poor,Wish I was deaf

then copy cell as needed.
