    formula to auto delete number in dropdown list when number appears in another cell

    Greetings Everyone,

    I'm making a Excel 2013 spreadsheet that has formula in a column that auto enters a number 1-40 when something is entered to the left of that cell. There are 300 rows in the spreadsheet. I would like to make a drop down list in a column cell to the right that would delete that number in that cell from the drop down list.
    For example cell C1 has 39, that 39 then is deleted from the drop down list. C2 has 22 in it, click on the drop down list cell and it shows 1-40 less 39 and 22.

    Hope this makes sense. Thank you for looking.

    Attach a sample workbook. Make sure there is just enough data to make it clear what is needed. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are demonstrated, mock them up manually if needed. Remember to desensitize the data.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and use the paperclip icon to open the upload window.

    Hi

    One of our members (thanks Ice Station..) has noted that you've added your email address in this public forum. That's not usually a good idea and an attraction for spammers. You may want to consider removing it and working out how to upload your file.

    In Logging Sheet in S7
    copy paste below then hold control and shift and then hit enter to make it array formula
    =IFERROR(INDEX(ROW(INDIRECT("1:40")),SMALL(IF(COUNTIF($K$6:$K$302,ROW(INDIRECT("1:40")))=0,ROW(INDIRECT("1:40"))),ROW(A1))),"")

    drag the formula down upto 40 rows

    Select P7 to P302 , go to data validation ---> select list ---->IN SOURCE BOX copy paste =$S$7:INDEX($S$7:$S$46,MATCH(TRUE,ISTEXT($S$7:$S$46),0)-1)
    click Ok

    You can after words hide column S Or select white font color for column S
    Hope this helps
