    Dropdown list dependent on 2 criterias

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to create a list dependent on 2 criterias. But i would like to avoid dependent drop-down lists, since i have about 1000 rows of data and 400 unique productcodes.

    As presented by my mock data, there are 3 columns of interest:

    Column 1: Region
    Column 2: Productcode
    Column 3: Category

    Actually i would like the function like Vlookup, but then return mutiple values correspondonng to the criterias.


    I hope I have explained my problem satisfactory.

    Example is attached.

    Best regards

    I've created helper column G like:
    into G2:
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    That's array formula so you have to accept it with Ctrl+Shift+Enter not just Enter.
    Then drag it down for ex. 10 rows down.
    Marked G2:G10 (as down as you drag it down as above) and name this range for ex. as dropData.
    Then recreate this range as dynamic. Formulas / Name manager and change refres to for dropData into:

    Formula: copy to clipboard

    then ifor cell C2 in Data / Data validation choose Source as:
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    Check attached file.

    Thank you so much! Just what i needed!
    Do you know if there's a way to only return unique values in the "Helper" directly in the formula?

    Otherwise i have a new formlua returning unique values:

    I don't see duplicates on helper column? Do you need check for unique?

    Yes I am in the process of cleaning up the data. But for the time being, I would like to check for unique values
    for example if USA123 is chosen, 2 times Clothes comes up.

    Simplest way is to apply helper2 where you can extract unique, as you suggest in post #3.
    Check attached file.
