I have a spreadsheet to record financial transactions, and to save typing,

Range, Calc crashes. On re-opening, I find that it has saved the changes I
made, but I can't stop the crashes.

Any ideas?

     Usually when are typing in a spreadsheet, Calc will suggest a word
based upon what you have typed in one of the cells before So, I'm not sure
you need a drop down list.
     Also a simple database for your expenses will do what you want
including the use of drop down lists.


Dan - thanks for the reply.

Perhaps I am using a sledgehammer to crack a nut, though it is useful to be
able to limit inputs to only a list of possibilities. What concerns me is
the crashing. Have any other users found this problem?
