Hello,

as a general rule, you should always develop in the older version if you plan to use the spreadsheet across different versions.

Without seeing any of your code it's kinda hard to tell you which lines will not work in 2007.

Maybe you could be convinced to post your code and/or your file?

cheers,

If your data validation refers directly to a different worksheet, then it will not work in 2007 or earlier. You need to name the source range and then refer to that range name in the data validation. See here for example: http://www.contextures.com/xlDataVal01.html
