    Dynamic Data Validation List Based On Criteria In Another Column

    I have a named range "EmpList" it gets it information from column F. In Column G, it states whether or not the employee in F is on the active roster.

    I would like the list to include only those names on the active roster.

    I am currently using the formula

    =OFFSET(Schedule!$F$341,,,COUNTA(Schedule!$F$341:$F$1000),1)

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Hi, Try COUNTIF instead of COUNTA,

    =OFFSET(Schedule!$F$341,,,COUNTIF(Schedule!$F$341:$F$1000,"?*"),1)

    Or please attach a dummy file.

    Thank you for the quick responses.

    I used Martin's example and it works perfectly.

    Have a great day.
