Fill Drop Down with List




I am trying to use a list I created of employees in a drop down box on a
different worksheet but can't seem to get it to work.

The worksheet my drop down is on is: Schedule
I want it in D9 and make it visible only when it's clicked on. When another
cell is clicked, I want the drop down to disappear but the text to remain.

The worksheet my list is on is: Data
The first cell has a header Employee C1
The list ranges from C2:C16

How do I get the list from Data worksheet to feed the drop down in Schedule?

Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks!!!

Unless you want to house your lists on the active worksheet, you will need to
name your list. Go to your menu Insert|Name|Define.
The variable name I chose is EmpList
This refers to: =Data!$C$2:$C$16

Then, in your cell on Schedule, instead of choosing List and
=Data!$C$2:$C$16, you would choose, List and =EmpList.

Hope this helps.
