Create list to choose from
I'm just trying to create a short pulldown list in a spreadsheet. Instead
of having to retype repetitve selections for this spreadsheet that gets used
a lot, I'd like to create a pulldown list, but I'm not sure which kind of
list to choose and I'm not sure how to enter the list.
Can anyone help.
Thanks a bunch.
i'ld go with data / validation

A workbook I've created has quite a few Data Validations. By accident I
found out that when the input message is showing, you can use the mouse to
shift it to wherever you want on the sheet. Once that is done, all other
data validation messages will appear in that same spot (which is not always
a bad thing)
The messages will no longer be shown in their default position (next to or
near the active cell that causes the validation input to appear).
Is there a way to restore that default setting?
AFAIK, once the input message has been moved, you can't reset it to its

You can do that if you set the owner draw flag. It is pretty easy.
