Default data validation list drop down text format too small

I am using data validation to check data input against a list in a work sheet
but the text in the dropdown box is size 8 and too small to read. Standard
format for the work book is size 12. How can i change the text size in the
drop down box to size 12

give it a go.
Once again Thank you.
