I have a table full of text phrases (Summary/Category). I want to easily enter those phrases in a different table (DATA/Enter the category) using a pop-up menu.

 

I would like to items in the pop-up menu to be generated based on the contents of the Summary/Category cells.

 

Possible?

    Tracy,

    Pop-up menus in Numbers '09 are a pain.  The explaination I provided was for Numbers 3.0.  I missed the clues in your earlier posts that you were using Numbers '09.

     

    In Numbers '09 select a cell you want to format as a pop-up, then use the dialog you posted and double click the items the change the name.  Use the "+" to add new items.  once you have the pop-up set up, copy that cell and paste in the others cells, then change the selection as needed

    I see. It won't generate them, but I can edit them by hand. That should work for now.
