Validation List to range


I am looking for some code to do the following

I have a validation List (Open/Closed). I would like on entry to the spreadsheet this list to be extended down the column to as far as Column A goes

So if today there is 20 rows, all 20 rows have that validation  on entry, if tomorrow it is 15, then 15 rows have validation and if the day after there is 25 rows, then 25 rows have validation.

It would be easier if you upload a workbook
You can copy the formula for all row of column A. You can do that by dragging the first cell with the validation by selecting and than dragging from the bottom right edge of the cell. After that you should never have to worry about extending this.

I never used the second answer as i worked it out myself. Had i not and loaded the WB, from our previous dealings, you would have came good :-)
Saqib Husain, SyedEngineerCommented:
Honestly such questions which do not have any technical value should be deleted rather than awarded. These questions are supposed to form EE's knowledge base and should have technical value.

You could, however, post your solution and then accept your own answer. This way the question and the solution becomes a valuable part of EE.

I was actually going to split the points between me and wasiftoor but couldnt see the button to award myself points, so presumed that was no longer an option on EE. Now I know that i can post myself and award points, that is what i will do!

Saqib Husain, SyedEngineerCommented:
To be able to include yourself in the acceptance there must be a comment from you. Since you had no comment therefore you could not see the button. You should have posted your solution and then the button would have been there.
