    Which formula would work best in this case?

    I am setting up an invoice ticket for construction. We have different employees with different trades, which also means a different payscale. I am trying to set it up so that once their trade is entered, the value of that trade is automatically entered in a cell next to it. I thought the IF formula would work, but I am not using all values so I can't get it to work properly.

    Example:
    I11=Trade (I've created a drop-down list with all five trades that apply)
    L11=Hourly Rate (As it stands I manually enter their rate)

    So in a perfect (Excel) world, if I choose "Foreman" from the drop-down menu, the L11 cell will be automatically filled with the Foreman's hourly rate.

    THANKS!

    Sorry to be a pest, but you need to do a bit better.....
