Creating a dropdown list from values in a column on another sheet

Answered - Pending Review

I am trying to create a simple dropdown list of values to select from a customized list of values in another sheet. This list will change over time, so I want to use this reference sheet to update the list values. I have setup the list in Sheet Reference Manager and there is only one column of data in the reference sheet which contains the values for the dropdown list. However, I am at a loss as to what formula to use on the primary sheet column so that it is using the values from the referenced sheet. Thank you for assisting.

    Hi @jeffvinsant

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Unfortunately, it's not possible now natively, but it's an excellent idea!

    Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment.

    Here's a possible workaround or workarounds

    • Use the Premium App, Data Shuttle to "sync" dropdown lists.

    Is that an option?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
