Hi, I'm a beginner with excel. I'm trying to figure out how to make a calender pop up when clickingon a drop down menu. I have office 16. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I strongly suggest that instead of a calendar drop-down, you use a date drop-down. The first allows any date. The second limits the input date to those included in the drop-down.
