:eek: How do I create a list for my form where I can go to a cell and click a down arrow to see the contents of the list then select a item on the list to be displayed in that cell? :biggrin:

Spell Check in Excel
Press F7 to start spell check in Excel. Be careful, by default, Excel does not check Capitalized Werds (whoops)

Select the cell (where your dropdown will be) and go to data --> validation, choose to allow list where the source is the range of input values, and click OK.

Yes, but you have to assign it a name first.

To create a named range, just select your list and type a name for it in the name box (or, go to insert --> name --> define).

Then, use =my_list (or whatever your list's name is) as the source of your list in data --> validation.
