    validation list on another spreadsheet (2000)

    Sorry if this is a eally easy one or one that has been addresses 10,000 times already, but is there any way have the source for data/validation/list pointing to another sheet? It seems that it can only be data on the same spreadsheet as the cell that you want to have the validation rule, and I need to point to another sheet and get the drop down values from info on another sheet...possible??? Thanks so much in advance!!

    Use these steps:

    - Create the list
    - name it (Insert, name, define)
    - go to your cells that need the validation
    - enter the defined name as the listsource.
