We need to be able to format a cell as a combo (dropdown) having supplied a list of valid values e.g. format cell 0,1 as a dropdown with these possible values (A1, A2, S3). This can be done in Excel using Data | Validation | Settings | Allow = List, Source = A1,A2,S3. We need to be able to do this using the API. We are using jakarta-poi-1.5.0-dev-20020416-bin.zip. I have looked in the 1.7 version but there is no method on HSSFCell for this. Regards Craig

Enhancement. Not on anyone's radar at the moment.
