    Question Validating Lists with associated data

    Hi

    I want to use excel to valid a range from another worksheet (Employee) and allow as a drop down box.

    The range of employees each have a number next to them so:
    A_____________B
    Employee______Rating
    Employee 1_____5
    Employee 2_____3
    Employee 3_____8
    Employee 4_____2

    .... and so on.

    So I can validate and allow for a drop down box for the employee but I don't then know how I can then bring their rating number across with it, so that the rating occupies the next cell along from the validating cell.

    Yes, thanks. Both work as I want them to although I note the difference is one uses a range and the other specifies the data.

    Can you just explain in the context how the vlookup funciton operates?

    Also can I lock the auto populated rating cell so that a/ the code cannot be overwritten and can only include the correct figure?
