I'm trying to update cells via the API and one the cells is in a Dropdown list column. However, when the API tries to add a value to the cell.
I'm getting a 1042, "The value for cell in column 7098131356849892, beagle, did not conform to the strict requirements for type PICKLIST."
However, I've checked the sheet, the value does not exist in the Dropdown list but column is not strict, so I thought I'd be able to add the value in. So simple question is the Dropdown list always strict? Before I attempt to update the cell should I update the column?
