Is there a way to have a user on sheet1 pick from a pull down of a data validation on sheet2? I have important information that is linked to only sheet2 within a data validation. I want to be able to reference it in sheet1 to have the user pick, then it toggles them on sheet2. Is this possible?

I don't fully understand your requirement. If the following does not answer your question, please restate your requirement.

If you use a named range to define the list for your data validation, you can use that named range for data validation on any page of that workbook.

I was wanting the user to beable to pick from an already setup data validation on sheet 2 from sheet 1. The more I think about it; it would prob. be easier just to move the data validation to sheet1 and then the result be linked over to sheet2.
