    Data validation list automatically shows the first item in the list

    Hi,

    I am trying to create two Data Validation lists (one dependent on the other). When i change the value in the first drop down i would like the other drop down to show the 1st items in the list. Any ideas?

    Thank you...

    Hi

    This is possible on a userform but not on a sheet.

    Hi, thanks for the reply. I think i have found an acceptable solution. I have said, that i want to see the word <select> instead of 1st item in the dependent list. With this option I removed, at least, the previous selection from the drop down list.

    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    If Target.Address = "$D$4" Then Range("D5").Value = "<select>"
    End Sub
