DROPDOWN LIST USING IMAGES IN EXCEL

How can I create a dropdown list using images instead of text.  On the attachment on cells D5:D7 I have three symbols.  So I would like to create a dropdown with those images and selecting them to enter into a cell using something like data validation list....something like that.

it won't be possible using the normal way, but you can try do a research if this is possible by using an ActiveX control?

Hi Luis,

As Ryan mentioned, it would be difficult to have image in your drop down list unless you use third party application.

Check attached, if this may help you.
