    Drop down list of numerical range instead of every whole number

    Hi everyone,

    I have a ranking list of 500 or so names, all listed down from 1 up to and including 500. It's quite a long list, so I'm trying to cut it down in intervals of 50 so it's easier to read.

    Is there a way I can have the drop-down to show (1-50, 51-100, 101-150, etc.) instead of (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, etc.)? That way, I can keep the list to 50 rows instead of 500.


    Thanks!

    Please attach a sample workbook (not a picture or pasted copy). Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. 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 shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and then scroll down to Manage Attachments to open the upload window.
    let Source = #table({"Question","Thread", "User"},{{"Answered","Mark Solved", "Add Reputation"}}) in Source

    If I give you Power Query (Get & Transform Data) code, and you don't know what to do with it, then CLICK HERE

    you need as minimum a selection of the offset, additionally a selection of # to show
    data validation formular can be

    where $A$1 is the header of your list you want to show
    $F$S is the offset of your list (beginning with 1)
    $G$2 is the number of values to show in the dropdown

    cheers,

    Wow yeah this is exactly what I mean! Thank you! But when I choose a different option in the drop-down list, I don't see the numbers. Is there a fix for this? I've tried to play around with it but I'm afraid I simply don't know how.
