    I have data in cell a20 -a60 I'm using data/validation/list. I want to put every 6th or 7th cell(a26,33,40,47,53) in drop down list (without having to type the contents of the cells.

    Hi gumby:
    I would do it this way:
    1. Highlite A20:A60 ... DATA|VALIDATION|Settings|Allow|List
    2. Create source list, say starting in cell D24 ... =A26, in cell D25 ... =A33, in cell D26 ... A40, in cell D27 ... =A47, in cell D28 ... =A53
    3. and the necessary information related to Input_message, and Error Alert

    There may be other ways of doing it -- but this way should do it.

    Please post back if it works for you ... otherwise explain a little further ... and let us take it from there!
    Regards!
