Depending on how strict you want this to be, you can, for example, assign a column for the user to enter values and let them put whatever they want and have that list applied to a combobox through a named range.

You could also make a VB UserForm that manages all of this more effectively but you'll have to give a way for users to add text, remove text, maybe change text, then when done, push to Excel.
