Hi I am using numbers and i what to use pop-up menu with roughly 3 - 5 prices per pop-up menu. I want to put a description next to the price so i remember what the price refers to. Here is an example
$15 basic food
$20 premium food
The problem i have is when i had text to the description it returns me an error message
The operator "*" expects a number, but the cell contains a string

I think you have to define the cell as " text " to achieve that, but than you may encounter issues when you use the cell for calculation.
You may need a bit of extra ' spreadsheet magic ' to use the cell for calculation.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
