    Drop down menus that populate other cells with info based on choice?

    Is there a way to populate other cells with info based on a user's drop down choice? For example, if I chose from a series of names from a drop down, cells below with address, phone number etc. for each person would fill based on the selection? Thanks!!

    Welcome to the forum.

    Attach a sample workbook. Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Yes that can be done, either with the VLOOKUP or INDEX/MATCH functions.

    As mikeTRON says, if you can attach a sample workbook it will allow people to see how your data is structured and advise you on the best approach.
