Dropdown box list is not showing text

Anybody got any idea why my dropdown boxes are not showing text. They are the exact size of the list that should feature, it's like the font is in white (It's not, I have checked).

See the attached screenshot...

Figured it, I had changed the table heading in excel, but it was still showing the old excel table heading in the 'value' field, under 'items', simply changed it. Thanks for pushing me in the right direction.

You might need to provide more information to get an answer. Can you post what is in the "Items" field of your dropdown or post an image of it?

The dropdown source is an excel table named 'Contracts_DB; as per the attached screenshot.

I have tried both refreshing and removing and reinserting the data source.

Sorry, where do I find the 'items' field?

If you click on the dropdown box and go to advanced, there should be a field called "Items" 

 

Can you screenshot or post what exactly is in there?
