I have an excel column where a drop down validation is performed on a list on a separate sheet. I would like to allow the user to start typing in the cell and have the names on the reference list begin to fill in cell. For example, on the list I am validating against there may be a Smith, John, Scythe, Jane, and Mary, Typhoid. Instead of tapping the drop down, I want to be able to type "S", have both of the "S" last names appear in the drop down, type "m" and have Smith, John be the only option left. If invalid data is entered, nothing should save (or some other default behavior similar to validation should occur). I am trying to avoid using the drop down selectors because the users are on tablets and find the drop down cumbersome
Is this possible, and if so how?
