Hi Guys,
I would like to create an autocomplete drop down list on certain columns in my invoice.

The list of items can be found in the worksheet Zones + Tolls

The dropdown lists need to be in Column E, column F and column M for the list of Suburb / Zones.

The dropdown lists need have an autocomplete feature, so that if I type alp, the list shows me the item that begin with alp, etc.

Also the lists should always show the content, when selected in capitals, regardless of whether I have the caps lock on or off.

I have attached my blank template, so that whatever is needed can be added to the template.  I have tried data validation, combo box and can't understand it and even had the entire list below the cells and it doesn't always work.

Also, as this is an invoice template I use, I would also need the ability to when I copy entire rows to insert new rows, that the dropdown list automatically is added into the new inserted rows.
