Hi,

'H5:H12 will have formula to determine selection - =IF(COUNTIF($C$5:$C$12,G5),"",G5) --enter this formula in G5 and drag till G12

in a standard module:

Sub Validation()
With Sheets("Sheet1")
With .Range("C5:C12").Validation
.Delete
.Add Type:=xlValidateList, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, _
Operator:=xlBetween, Formula1:="=$G$5:$G$12"
.IgnoreBlank = True
.InCellDropdown = True
.ShowInput = True
.ShowError = True
End With
.Range("H5:H12").Formula = "=IF(COUNTIF($C$5:$C$12,G5),"""",G5)"
End With
End Sub
