Sub GSDDropDown()
Dim i As Integer
i = 4
Do While i < 23
If Range("F" & i).Value = Range("A1") Then
Range("Z" & i).Validation.Add Type:=xlValidateList, Formula1:="=GSD_Sub_DropDown"
Else
Range("Z" & i).Value = "N/A"
End If
i = (i + 1)
Loop
End Sub

:confused:

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

Works fine for me....do you have the Validationlist..
1. in the corerct location
2. is it populated with the correct data
3. make sure the name in the namelist is the same as the one in the code

If not, what is the actual problem ?

Code:
 Sub GSDDropDown()
  Dim i As Integer
  i = 4
  For i = 4 To 23
  If Range("F" & i).Value = Range("A1").Value Then
  With Range("Z" & i).Validation
          .Add Type:=xlValidateList, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator:= _
          xlBetween, Formula1:="=OFFSET(SUB!$R:$R,,,COUNTA(SUB!$R:$R)+1)"
          .IgnoreBlank = True
          .InCellDropdown = True
          .InputTitle = ""
          .ErrorTitle = ""
          .InputMessage = ""
          .ErrorMessage = ""
          .ShowInput = True
          .ShowError = True
  End With
  Else
  Range("Z" & i).Value = "N/A"
  End If
  Next i
  End Sub

However, when I rerun the codes above, the vba will give me error message. I tried to use the following codes to clear the data validation but it didn’t work. I can rerun the above codes only if I clear the data validation manually by clicking a popup message box regarding multiple validation. Any idea ?

Code:
 Sub macro2()
  Range("Z4:Z23").ClearContents
      With Selection.Validation
          .Delete
          .Add Type:=xlValidateInputOnly, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator _
          :=xlBetween
          .IgnoreBlank = True
          .InCellDropdown = True
          .InputTitle = ""
          .ErrorTitle = ""
          .InputMessage = ""
          .ErrorMessage = ""
          .ShowInput = True
          .ShowError = True
      End With
  End Sub

Thanks,
