I am trying to create a document or template for vehicle maintenance. Since I am let's say "challenged" when it comes to certain aspects of computer technology, maybe someone can help. What I am trying to do is create a vehicle maintenance schedule. I want to include a "drop down menu?" in the document. For example in the oil change box I want to be able to have a drop down menu so I can see when the last time the oil was changed for a specific vehicle. I'm sure this can be done. My question is how. My Microsoft Office has Word, Excel, Power Point. Please let me know if this can be done.

I think you may need to use Access for that. I will check back to see if I am wrong. Would love to know if it can be done with the other programs, as I have never taken the time to master Access.

====================

Yes it is possible in Excel with a few custom scripts or macros. Do a google search for excel templates....you might hopefully find one you'll need to modify a little bit.

Unless you want to go through learning Access

Did you happen to check the Microsoft site?

See:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/te...ance&av=TPL000

Some of their templates are very useful. If you don't need to recreate the wheel then don't. :-)
