    Populate column based on selection from a dropdown

    Hi,

    I have reviewed a few answers to similar questions on the site but I'm afraid I haven't found anything that quite works! Hence I have registered!
    I describe my problem below and have simplified it a little, I hope its clear enough...


    Worksheet 1
    Column A is a list of 10 items
    Elsewhere on the sheet is a cell with a dropdown containing 3 options; low, average, high

    Worksheet 2
    I have (on another worksheet) the same list of 10 items with a low price estimate, average price estimate and high price estimate next to them.

    I would like to select, say, "high" from the dropdown on Worksheet 1 and have Column B populated with the corresponding data from the high price estimate pulled from Worksheet 2. If I then changed the dropdown to "Average" the prices would switch to the average prices etc.

    I will be hugely grateful for any help anyone can give me, many thanks!

    Re: Populate column based on selection from a dropdown

    I'm a little confused with what you want. I'm just taking a guess that you have High, Low and Average somehow marked. The other possibility is that you have 3 columns marked Low, Average, and High. Glenn Kennedy already answered that possibility rather nicely.

    I don't know what the values are that you have but maybe this will help you.

    That is exactly what I had in mind!
    As newdoverman points out, I probably wasn't very clear in how I asked the question but you managed to decipher it and provide the solution. Well done!
    Many thanks Glenn
