Hi everyone,

I need to create a dropdown list in Excel 2011. In one of my worksheets I have 2 columns as follows:

1  Size group a
2  Size group b
3  Size group c
4  Size group d

The first column will just contain numbers while the second column holds the text. I need a way to create a dropdown menu so that I see both columns in the dropdown but when I choose one of the items in the drop down, I only want the number in the first column to appear in the cell.

I just wondered if there is anyway to do this in excel without using user forms?

Appreciate any advice.
