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

Dan - thanks for the reply.

able to limit inputs to only a list of possibilities. What concerns me is
the crashing. Have any other users found this problem?
