    Small issue with data validation

    Hello,

    I have developed a dropdown list composed of the following elements:
    Planned Compliant
    Verified Compliant
    Not Compliant
    Planned Compliant per Waiver (see note)
    Verified Compliant per Waiver

    Then by using data validation i assigned to each the following colors:
    Planned Compliant ----- yellow
    Verified Compliant ----- green
    Not Compliant ------ red
    Planned Compliant per Waiver (see note) ----orange
    Verified Compliant per Waiver ------blue

    Ok so everything works a part the fact that when i choose:
    Verified Compliant ---- the colour is green
    Verified Compliant per Waiver ---- the colour is green instead of blue

    Whant should i do? Apparently the system is confusing ''Verified Compliant per Waiver '' with ''Verified Compliant'' since they are very similar.


    Thank you
