    Lightbulb Multiple Drop Down lists which allow multiple selections

    Forgive me - I am a total beginner at this stuff.


    The issue is that I have several drop down lists where I want to be able to select multiple options.
    I have successfully done this for one of the lists.

    But - I am unable to re-define the range - atm it is working on Column 4 - I want to change this to allow the drop down lists at 4,5,7,8,9 all to have drop down lists able to select multiple options.

    The following is the VBA I used.

    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    ' Developed by Contextures Inc.
    ' www.contextures.com
    Dim rngDV As Range
    Dim oldVal As String
    Dim newVal As String
    If Target.Count > 1 Then GoTo exitHandler

    On Error Resume Next
    Set rngDV = Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeAllValidation)
    On Error GoTo exitHandler

    If rngDV Is Nothing Then GoTo exitHandler

    If Intersect(Target, rngDV) Is Nothing Then
    'do nothing
    Else
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    newVal = Target.Value
    Application.Undo
    oldVal = Target.Value
    Target.Value = newVal
    If Target.Column = "4" Then
    If oldVal = "" Then
    'do nothing
    Else
    If newVal = "" Then
    'do nothing
    Else
    Target.Value = oldVal _
    & ", " & newVal
    ' NOTE: you can use a line break,
    ' instead of a comma
    ' Target.Value = oldVal _
    ' & Chr(10) & newVal
    End If
    End If
    End If
    End If

    exitHandler:
    Application.EnableEvents = True
    End Sub


    Is anyone able to help??? Please!
