Data Validation control

EE Professionals,

How do you control the size of the font or position in a validation drop down box?  It seems that everytime I draw from a list, I get a different font size or positioning.  Is there a simple way to control this?

Would you kindly upload an example of the problem you're having - sounds like something in there is providing some inconsistencies.

Thanks!

Dave,  Greetings!  Still working on my project.  I had a problem trying to control the size of the font in the dropdown text box.  After researching all of the information that jcim provided, it looked like the only way to gain control of this aspect was to add a "combobox" which also adds more complexity (for me).  Then I stumbled on a odd fix; I increased the zoom size and the entire sheet expanded.  I then rezoomed it back to a smaller size and the text box then expanded the size of the fonts.  Wierd....but worked.  I guess what they say is it's better to be lucky then to be good!

I think I'll leave this one alone and let the demons in the machine have this one.

Thanks,

B.

Problem of resizing text within a listbox is not clear from Microsoft on how to do it without a combo box control.  jcimarron provided good guidance although it could have been more detailed and with more potential fixes, workarounds or references......... And Dave was kind enough to try to step in.
