I cannot reproduce this behavior. It always starts at the top for me.
Is this a standard data validation drop-down on the worksheet, or is it on a user form?
How exactly was it created?
How is it being populated?
Also, which version of Excel are you using?

Note that if the cell already has a selection (so it is not empty), when you click on the drop-down, it will start with your selection (that is expected behavior).
But if the cell is empty, it should start showing the options from the top.

How exactly are you referencing that other table in the Data Validation?
Are you using a range reference, table reference, or named range reference?
