I have this problem that I can't get the value selected in a drop down list in a cell to update automatically after updating the list value.

1) Original list

2) Updated Product Item C to Item C aa, but it do not update automatically even though I use the data validation formula with automatic update of drop down list.

Is it possible to automatically update or refresh cell value selected from drop down list without re-selecting value in list?

Thank you in advance.

Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney

After you select ItemC, then you changed the List to ItemCaa, it will not get refreshed. However, if you click drop down list again the list is updated, right?

I don't know if it is possible the update the displayed ItemC without clicking the drop down list again.

No because it is put in the cell as a value when you click it in the dropdown (the same as if you done a copy/pastespecial value)

I suppose you could put in a trigger for detecting changes in column A in the worksheet's event handling, and then have it update the values in column C based on what changed. I think you'll have trouble doing it using only data validation though.

So Event Handling should be through VBA coding or is there any shortcuts for this?
