    Question Autofill a cell based on Drop-down List Selection

    Hi,

    If there is drop-down list containing various values, based on the value selected on the drop down list there should be a value which should be auto completed on another cell. I have seen many tutorials and they were all based on indirect function(where based on the selection made in the drop down list, few more selections appear in another drop-down). But i want the autocompleted value to be set by default along with the other regular depending cascading lists.

    eg. cell A2 contains a list of book titles. when i select a book from A2, B2 should contain a default value of "xyz" which is common for all the books, c2 should contain another drop down which is relevent to the type of book selected from A2

    Thanks.

    I think you are thinking about this in a way too complicated way.
    What I believe you are after (correct me if I am wrong) is in B2 for example you just need a formula like...

    i.e. if A2 is blank then leave B2 blank otherwise show xyz
