Quick question.

When i select a cell and then I select data/validation, and then i choose to create a pop down list of options, i write the options in the list line. Then when I pop down the button to see the list, The list is in microscopic font size. Once i pick something from the list (which i can barely read it is so small) it appears in the cell in the proper size. But while in the "pop down list view", i cannot read the entires.

How do I make the list font size appear larger when popped down?

Thank you,

Glenn

You can't. You can only change the zoom level of the sheet to make them appear larger.

If this is a major problem for you, I would suggest going with a combobox instead of the validation list.
