    Drop down lists (Excel 2003)

    I feel foolish asking this, b/c I used to know the answer but have forgotten...if I have drop down list, I know I can scroll thru it to make a selection....I recall that I can also open the list and use the arrow key to scroll thru it to make a selection, but I can't remember the key to hit (spacebar ? control ? etc) that will 'open' the list and make it 'scroll-able' using the arrow keys....can someone give me a reminder..thanks.

    Is it a Validation dropdown list? If so, press Alt+down arrow to make the list drop down; you can then use the up and down arrow keys to select an item and press Enter to confirm your choice.
