    Is it possible when using Data Validation / list, to allow user to tab in the cell that has been formatted with Data Validation and then enter additional data along with pre-selection from list.

    IMHO
    The only manner in which this can be achieved is as follows:
    • Column A :- Validated data
    • Column B :- Free form data
    • Cell C1 :- Formula =A1&B1

    It is indeed possible - you just turn the error alert off.
