    Conditional formatting with named ranges, need help!

    Hi

    I may be going about this the wrong way, but not sure as i'm not too advanced on excel. I'm using data validation for three drop down menus, and within these are the named ranges. But the named ranges i want to use all have the same headers and so i cannot give the ranges the same name. If you have a look at the attachment, you should understand better. I need to be able to select one of the peachy coloured headers and in turn one of the green headers and then one of the sizes in white.

    i need to input this data within cells A20 - A22 but the info is from column E onwards. Info is just on sheet 1, ignore the others.

    Help would be appreciated!

    Thanks

    Pete

    Hi Pete,

    I've created the conditional validation that you are looking for. I'm not sure if there is any easy way this can be done. My solution is little complicated as I used Hlookup,concatenate and Define function.

    Please check the attached sheet. Hope this helps.

    Warm regards

    Hi Ishtiyaq,

    Thanks for your reply. I managed to figure it out myself eventually, but appreciate your answer and the spreadsheet
