Default Simple Yes/No drop down box

Hi, I am looking to create a simple drop down box which has yes or no as the
options. For the life of me i can't remember how to do it.

Thanks

Default Simple Yes/No drop down box

Select the cell and then click on Data | Data Validation. In the
dialogue box for Allow click on List, and then in Source you can type
"Yes,No" (without the quotes) and ensure that In-cell drop-down is
checked. Click OK and then you have it.

Hope this helps.

Pete
