making a drop down box



i made a list for a drop down box,I have 40 items counting the title of the
box.I used the data validation button & the box works fine.all 40 items are
in the box but the list is still visible.How do I make it so the list is not
visible but the items remain in the box?

Are you sure you used Data Validation>Allow>List>In-cell Dropdown?

The arrow and list are invisible until you select the cell.

Maybe you used a ComboBox from the Forms Toolbar or Control Toolbox.

Both those remain visible.
