Unless I'm missing something, this isn't wildly different from 2007 to 2010, but here goes...

Attached sheet also has these instructions in, but for quickness, here they are as well:

      Creating a dropdown
1      Make a list of the entries you want to allow - see Sheet2
2      Select this list, and make it a named range eg - CodeList
3      Select the cell you want the validation to apply to - C5
4      Go to the Data menu, Data Validation, Data Validation again, and select the List option
5      Set the Source to be =CodeList, as per screenshot below
6      Create a simple VLOOKUP function based on the CodeList range to include the full names
7      If you want these to become permanent entries, use Copy.. Paste Special.. Values
8      … but you may want to keep a "spare" copy of the validation cells somewhere else

thanks for the points and grade.  By the way, you have to turn OFF the Data Validation on the final copy of the cells if you want to keep them from being changed accidentally...
cheers, Danny.
