We can't really come up with a list…that shows all of these cities over here…but why not have some individual list…that relate to each state…and if we combine this with a data validation feature…that allow us to create dropdown list,…there won't be any typing at all required…in column B or in column C.…Now, as you set this up,…it's ideal to have that information…like we see here the state codes…and all those city names right here close by.…Eventually we could move this off to the side.…
