Year Dropdown

Hi,
Is there another way to do dropdown for such a long years e.g. 100 years instead of writing the year one by one in item dropdown?

Any helps much appreciated.
Thanks!

Re: Year Dropdown

Yeah, open up Excel, write the first 3 numbers (1,2,3) in column A1:A3, highlight those 3 cells and then drag the full handle down until you reach 100. Write A1&”, “ in cell B1. Then join all of those cells by writing B1&A2&”, “ in cell B2 and dragging the full handle down to row 100. Then paste special values on the last row and then you can copy + paste into PowerApps. All you gotta do from there is write the square brackets on either end. Takes less than a minute.
