Font size in data validation drop down lists
I am using data validation lists to control user inputs to a spread sheet.
How do I change the font size inside the drop down list?
I have tried changing the font size on the sheet itself & changing the font
size on the list page. I can't seem to find a property setting for this
font size. The only way to make it appear larger is to zoom in on the page.
In a data validation dropdown list, you can't change the font size.
There are a couple of programming workarounds here:

I need to increase the gap between my labels on the X axis in a scatter plot.
They are too close and I can not read the labels unless i make them 4pt and
zoom in to 200%. There are about 200 points on the X axis at .2 increments.
I would like to be able to have labels for whole numbers only.
I can not use a fixed set of values by generating a dummy X-axis since the
range changes as I apply the different filters.

Actually the title of this question is a little misleading, sorry. This
should be fairly simple. I run 5 different reports for 2 different shifts
based on certain product catagories that were produced the previous day.
Sometimes there is data for those reports and sometimes not. Instead of the
report opening in preview, I would rather just have a MsgBox pop up that says
there's nothing to report. Other than date and shift information, I'm
pulling up the product SKU, description of the product, start and end time,
qty and so on. please help! Thanks

I am creating a a form for data entry and want to know if there is a way to

that the end user can continue entering additional data.

the above as I have never done this before?
Maybe just Data|Form would be sufficient.
