    I am attempting to create a list of names in a particular cell in an Excel spreadsheet. I want to pre-populate this cell with names that the user can select by simply clicking an arrow or something of this nature. How can I complete this task? How can I create a list that is attached to a cell that the use can scroll and select from?

    Hi Bimmer:
    One of the ways you can do this is ...
    1) let us say you want to facilitate picking up an item: Cell C1 from a list of items that are in cells A2:A9 ... Author, Bimmer, MrExcel, Create, List, Good, Better, Best
    2) Click on cell C1, then DATA|VALIDATION|SETTINGS ... Allow:List; Source: = $A$2:$A$9; OK!

    Now when you go to cell C1 ... you will see a drop-down arrow, when you click on that arrow, you will be able to find the list-items to pick from.

    HTH!

    Regards!
