    Post Data Validation with different columns

    Hi,
    Can somebody assist me.

    I am working on the worksheet and trying to use the data validation. I need to consolidate all the data in the GroupName1,2&3 from the Goal Worksheet then put it as a dropdown list to Percent Worksheet - Goal Name. See attached

    Thanks,

    Raz

    Please attach an Excel workbook, not a .zip file. We don't need to see your entire dataset, just a representative sample.

    As I said, we do not need to see the entire dataset. Please trim it down to a basic sample file and post that.

    Since you have a newer version of Excel you could use Get & Transform to make your list.
    1. Select a cell in the table (it is actually a range formatted as a table) on the "Goal" sheet and press the Ctrl and t keys.
    2. Name the table: Table2
    3. On the Data tab select: From Table/Range
    4. In the Power Query Editor > On the Home tab select Advanced Editor
    5. When the Advanced Editor window opens replace what is inside with the following:
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    6. Select Done
    7. Select Close and Load to... then OK
    8. Select the new table (modeled on the DVList sheet) as the list for the data validation
    Let us know if you have any questions.
