I have a workshhet that can contain multiple rows with the same values in one of the columns. I want to create another worksheet, that will be hidden, that will be the source for a data validation list on a third sheet.

I prefer to do this with a formula instead of a macro because our company's security policies will prompt the user if the workbook contains macros. Can someone assit me with how this could possibly be accomplished.

As an example, sheet1 may contain the following values in column A:

A1
A1
A1
A2
A2
B1
B1
B1

I want to create a column in sheet2 that will contain:
A1
A2
B1
