    Populate Multiple Cells based off one drop down

    See my attached spreadsheet for an idea of what I'm trying to build

    I would like to have a drop down in cell A2, that displays several names. When a name is selected, it will automatically populate the cells in B2 & C2 with a home and cell phone numbers.

    In E2-G6, I've given examples of the phone numbers to be displayed. Note that not every person has both phone numbers.

    Is this something easy to set up?

    This looks like its pretty good. I'll have to go through this to understand the formula better so I can apply it to other lists too. Thank you so much.
