    Excel 2008 - Data Validation Drop-down List
    Hi All,

    I'm new to this thread so apologies if I have posted in the wrong place.

    I use Office 2008 for Mac OS X 10.5.8. I currently use data validation to create drop down lists in Excel (version 12.2.0) but canít figure out how to create a drop down list that allows me to select multiple options within the one cell.

    I have searched online and found the answer for PC based Office 2008 (right click on sheet tab and select view code), I don't have this option in the version of Excel I'm working with, can anyone assist?

    Welcome to the Mac forums. I moved your post to the correct forum as it really does not belong in "Running Windows.......".

    You're confusing versions of Office... There is no Office 2008 for the PC, there is an Office 2007 and Office 2010 versions. Also, the latest version of Office 2008 for the Mac is at 12.3.0. You're missing an update.

    I haven't used Excel in a long time and currently do not have it installed in my version of Mac Office. Hopefully someone who is up to date with Excel can assist you.
