    Need Help Creating a DropDown List that Dictates the DropDock Options for Another List

    I am well aware of how to create a drop-down data validation list; however, I am facing challenges with creating a drop-down list that only displays relevent options from another drop-down list. For example: there are 4 total options for each selection (yes, no, often, and infrequently) but some of the selections only have 2 relevent options (yes, no).

    I am trying to display a drop-down list that once the selection is chosen, only the relevent options will appear in drop-down list #2. Thanks.

    What you are referring to are called cascading combo boxes. Here is a good tutorial that will help you.
