[NB: I re-structure my question since people got misled from my previous one]
What I really wish to ask is:
I wish to use data validation for a particular cell. But it doesn't work if I
choose "custom" in the "allow" box.
1) In Data | Validation | Settings Tab | Validation Criteria, there is an
2) I chose "custom", there is a formula.
3) I type in some formula, eg:
=J3 (Just Reference)
=J3-J1 (Reference-type formula)
=round(J1) (Function-type formula)
None of them can activate the validation function.
No matter I enter any number, it doesn't stop me.
What's more, even if I use formula auditing toolbar and clicked the icon -
"Circle Invalid Data", it still won't work.
Do you know why?
How to use data validation of "custom"?
