    Data validation drop down with calendar selection

    Hi there,

    I'm trying to figure out whether there is any way of getting a calendar drop down option in Excel 2016? Rather than free-typing a date, a month-by-month calendar would drop down (almost like a Validation circle) and a user would then select one date from the calendar.

    Any help/ advice would be greatly received.

    Thanks,

    Thanks so much tim201110 - that's exactly what I needed!
    How do I copy this into my current spreadsheet - is it saved as a macro or something else?

    It is better to copy your wb in the file if you are not familiar with VBA

    you are welcome
    IMHO
    i never like date pickers
    and prefer digital pad on keyboard. just digits and slashes. one does not need to put in a current year, excel understands.
