Default time sheet drop down lists

We are getting close. This formula works great unless there is a drop down
list, which I still need. When this formula is entered into a cell with a
drop down list I get a #value error. Any suggestions?

OK, try this:

Assume you have a list of times in 15m increments in the range G1:G20. This
list is the source for your drop downs in A2 (start time) and B2 (end time).

As the source for the drop down in B2 use this:


So, if you select 9:00 AM as the start time from the drop down in cell A2
the drop down for cell B2 will start at 9:15 AM.

I would like to be lazy and not half to scroll from the top

I understood that much!

Let me play around with an idea I have.

Hey Biff,
So much for being clear. Let me try again.
I need to enter a start time in the first column. Then when I enter the
time I would like to be lazy and not half to scroll from the top of my
list shown in the drop down to a time after the start time. Example:

1st column start time
3:15 pm
2nd column end time
3:30 pm or later

After re-reading your post about 10 more times, I think I misunderstood
first time around.

Why not just create separate lists. One that only contains the possible
start times and another that only contains the possible end times.

So, there is a particular end time that corresponds to a particular
time? If so, why not just use a lookup formula?

I have set up a time sheet in which e6:e14 has a drop down list of
15 minute increments. This is the start time. I have g6:g14 with
setup only this would be end time. Is there a way that when I enter
start time I will be able to enter the end time from the drop down
without having to scroll down from the begining?
