    Cell value dependent on a drop down menu

    Greetings, Im trying to figure out how to do the following, any help would be appreciated.
    Basicallt, i need to enter in a drop down menu a finished product and de-construct it into inventory needs

    Cell A1 and B1 are drop down menus with the same choices. Let's say choices are 1; 2; 3 (finish product)


    Cells D1 to F1 are materials

    I need to return values to multiple cells depending on choice made in A1...

    IE: i need +3 in D1 and + 4 in F1 if drop down =1
    I need +5 in E1 and +6 in F1 if drop down =2
    I need +7 in D1, +8 in E1 and +9 in F1 if drop down=3

    Thanks

    Not sure if this will work, try

    in D1
    =IF(A1="","",LOOKUP(A1,{1,2,3},{3,"",7}))

    in E1
    =IF(A1="","",LOOKUP(A1,{1,2,3},{"",5,8}))

    in F1
    =IF(A1="","",LOOKUP(A1,{1,2,3},{4,6,9}))

    Ensure you describe your problem clearly, I have little time available to solve these problems and do not appreciate numerous changes to them.

    Formula for D1 =IF(OR(A1=1,B1=1),3,"")&IF(OR(A1=3,B1=3),7,"")

    Formula for E1 =IF(OR(A1=2,B1=2),5,"")&IF(OR(A1=3,B1=3),9,"")

    Formula for F1 =IF(OR(A1=1,B1=1),4,"")&IF(OR(A1=2,B1=2),6,"")&IF(OR(A1=3,B1=3),9,"")



    Or

    Formula for D1 =CHOOSE(A1+B1+1,"",3,"",7)

    Formula for E1 =CHOOSE(A1+B1+1,"","",5,8)

    Formula for F1 =CHOOSE(A1+B1+1,"",4,6,9)
