    Question Dynamic Data Validation in VBA

    I'm looking to write a VBA code to dynamically apply a "list" type data validation constraint to a range of cells. I recorded a macro to try to reverse engineer it to do what I want, and I'm running into trouble. This is my current code:

    I'd like to be able to dynamically assign this range (something like this):

    Excel does not like this syntax.

    Does anyone know how I can tweak this to allow dynamic range selection for the Formula?

    THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!

    Something like this might work. Build the address as a sting:

    Re: Dynamic Data Validation in VBA

    Not meaning to hijack this query, but is it possible instead of using a list resident on a sheet for the "Formula1" parameter, to use the contents of a VBA array variable?

    Thanks

    Postscript:

    Solved this one myself by instead of using a VBA array variable as originally intended, using a VBA string variable which by looping I made into a comma separated list, then used that string variable as "Formula1" and it works. Which is a novelty for me!

    @greencroft: Welcome to the Forum, unfortunately:

    Your post does not comply with Rule 2 of our Forum RULES. Don't post a question in the thread of another member -- start your own thread. If you feel it's particularly relevant, provide a link to the other thread. It makes sense to have a new thread for your question because a thread with numerous replies can be off putting & difficult to pick out relevant replies.

    It's strange how so many say something like: Not meaning to hijack ... , then go right ahead and do it anyway!
