  • Hi arun,

    The reply by David in this thread should answer your question:

    Excel Web Apps - Create Drop down or allow selection from list

    the Office Web Apps Server   product does not yet support that functionality.  Office365 and OneDrive   are able to utilize all our latest features, so there is not always parity   between the cloud-based solutions and the on-premises solutions.  This   is unfortunately one of those cases.

    For the on-prem products, you   should expect to see these updates in a coming release, but how and which   release is not yet known.

    We love being able to release   the latest and greatest more quickly to our cloud services such as Office365   and OneDrive.  We're always looking into ways that we can do the   same for on-premises customers while still operating under the constraints of   maintaining the quality and stability of your environments.

    We are trying to better understand customer views on social support experience, so your participation in this interview project would be greatly appreciated if you have time. Thanks for helping make community forums a great place.
