    Data Validation --> Return Multiple Values via VLookup from Dynamic Data

    Hi Guys,

    I have a similar problem as the below thread except my data is dynamic and I can't sort the data.

    http://www.excelforum.com/excel-gene...html?p=3020736

    My data is as below, I have one Data validation displaying unique values from 'List' and then I am trying to do a second Data Validation based on 'Version' which only shows the unique values based on the selected entry in 'List'.

    Hopefully my description makes sense, I would appreciate some assistance.

    Thanks

    Hi No_Guru,

    Winon, thank for your response. Please find uploaded file.

    Cell F2 generates a few blank rows
    Cell G2 produces one correct entry and then the rest are either the values below the correct value.

    Thanks

    Wher,

    That is perfect, thank you ...

    One question ... When I have already already assigned/placed a value in the Select dependent field (G2) and then I change the Select (from unique list) (F2) ... How can I get it to flag that the value in Select dependent is invalid?

    Thanks

    Re: Data Validation --> Return Multiple Values via VLookup from Dynamic Data

    Wher, I'm just trying to look at the code for the data validation on F2 which has '=_val' under the source but I can't see find '_val' has been designed/constructed. I've looked under the VB Editor and macros but I can't find where '_val' has been coded.

    Sorry, just found it under named ranges ... I did not know that one could do that.
