    excel dropdown population and fetching values from another sheet in same file

    Hello Experts,

    I need 2 dropdowns in my excel sheet.
    First dropdown will have Yes and No values.


    The 2nd dropdown should be populated if the first dropdown is selected as Yes or else the 2nd dropdown should not be populated.

    The 2nd dropdown will have 4 values A,B,C and D.

    Now when 1st dropdown is selected with Yes this populates the 2nd dropdown with A,B,C or D values.
    Now when A,B,C,D is selected in the 2nd dropdown the value must be fetch from the 4 cells of A,B,C,D which are in another sheet in the same excel file into Year 1,Year 2,Year 3. If No value is selected in the first dropdown then the 2nd dropdown should be disabled and Year 1,Year 2,Year 3 columns should be 0

    Hi,

    Can you clarify please.

    Are the values in the 2nd drop down literally the characters "A", "B", "C" or "D"

    What do you mean by the value must be fetched from 4 cells A,B,C,D.

    If you could mock up a simple workbook that contains the selections and the results with notes explaining how you get the results that would help considerably.

    Hi,

    I'm still not sure what you mean by Year 1 2 & 3.

    This formula in C3 on sheet 2 will return the appropriate value from B15:E15 on sheet 1, but I don't understand when you would want row 16 to be used.

    Formula: copy to clipboard

    Re: excel dropdown population and fetching values from another sheet in same file

    Thanks Richard,This is exactly what I was looking for,
    row 16 is a redundant row which is not being used.
    Just one more question - How can I disbable the 2nd dropdown list when No is selected for the 1st dropdown?

    Thanks alot for your help!
