    Data Validation, Lookup, multi lookup, referancing and other.

    Hello all,

    everything is explained in the attachments, Please have a look.

    Just heads up, The past week was the first time I've tried using excel as it was intended to be used. So excuse my ignorance if I ask too many questions.

    We need to set up what we call "Manpower Distribution Table" that represents employees workload vs. active projects.

    ALL Projects and employee names are list data-validation cells that are grabbing information from other cells on the same sheet. reason being is that I would like to keep file easy to use as new employees/projects enter and leave the company.

    And the reason that projects is broken in two columns is i want to keep the sheet short (big list of employees)

    My boss is not an excel user either so I would like to keep this file as simple as possible (idiot proof) with only names and percentage to input.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    My apologies, I thought screen grabs would suffice.
    There you go.

    You're over complicated.


    Try this simplify/elegant version:

    =SUMIFS($F:$F,$D:$D,M$7,$E:$E,$K8)
