Hi I currently have the following code that when I click on a pulldown menu it zooms in then when you clicks of zooms out.

What I want is to still zoom in but once I click on selection it zooms out and selects range B1:s10 and copys the selection.

I'm not sure if its possible to zoom out and the rest on selection, so the other option is once item is selected from the pulldown and clicked on another cell to zoom out (like it does now) then select the range and copy.

Thanks for the help.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)


On Error GoTo LZoom
Dim xZoom As Long
xZoom = 73

If Target.Validation.Type = xlValidateList Then xZoom = 130

LZoom:
ActiveWindow.Zoom = xZoom

End Sub

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

try adding this sub

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    On Error GoTo LZoom
    Dim xZoom As Long
    xZoom = 73
    If Target.Validation.Type = xlValidateList Then
        With Range("B1:S10")
            .Select
            .Copy
        End With
    End If

- the selection event was not changed by my code and should work exactly as it did before
- I tested and zoom to 130% occurs in A2 if it contains Data Validation

Your sheet module should now contain both these subs
Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    On Error GoTo LZoom
    Dim xZoom As Long
    xZoom = 73
    If Target.Validation.Type = xlValidateList Then xZoom = 130
LZoom:
    ActiveWindow.Zoom = xZoom
End Sub

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    On Error GoTo LZoom
    Dim xZoom As Long
    xZoom = 73
    If Target.Validation.Type = xlValidateList Then
        With Range("B1:S10")
            .Select
            .Copy
        End With
    End If
LZoom:
    ActiveWindow.Zoom = xZoom
End Sub
