    Cell Validation (XP)

    Does cell validation work if the list is on another sheet? I have tried and can not get it to work. Apparently both the cell and list have to be in the same sheet.

    Regards,
    John

    I found a solution where you can enter a range name from the other sheet.

    You can define a name for the list, either in the Name box on the left hand side of the formula bar, or through Insert | Name | Define.
    You can use the name in the Validation dialog. Let's say you gave the list the name MyList. You'd use the formula =MyList in the Source box on the Validation dialog.
