Default restricted values that can be entered

When entering information into a cell, excel comes up with a error messages
that states " The value you entered is not valid. A user has restricted
values that can be entered into this cell". The cell is formatted as General
and is not protected.

Select the cell and issue Data | Validation. You will see that someone
has entered rules restricting permissible values. From the three tabs
in the dialogue box you should find out what the rule is.

click on data then validation and see what restrictions are in place..

a intresting floor with excell is that even with data validation on it does
not stop you typing data into another place and pasting it into the protected
cell

I just sign up to say thank you, because i was struggling to find a solution for my problem (type any text where cell already has a list configured) and you just gave me what i need.
