I am using Osborne books and have come to a bit I am stuck on,

I need to format a cell so I can have a drop down box with the months in (Jan, Feb etc)

How do I do it :crying: tried so many different ways, I dont use excel to this level on a daily basis

    Awesome thanks I will look when I get home tonight,

    Have you done Spreadsheets, or anyone else done it, how long did it take you to study for it?

    Yes, i have completed the Spreadsheets unit. I revised for a week, a few hours a night. I was already an advanced Excel user so I was quite familiar with most of the functions.

    Trying to vlookup between sheets?? Will I get asked this in the exam, I havent been taught it.

    If it is on the syllabus and indeed on the learning zone, I would suggest that it is examinable and would therefore urge you to practice this function alongside the others which you need to learn.
