    Calling multiple columns/rows from drop down list

    I have a drop down list, using data validation, calling from a range name on a different sheet($1). Works great. I see my list of choices.

    What I want to do next is for another named range on another sheet($2) to be called when I select one of the options from the drop down.

    So say the drop down is in I71, when I pick an option from that list it will populate (B72, B73:G73, B74:G74...etc...) from a named range I have already defined on ($2).

    Is this possible? Where would I put the (if I71=Range1, then paste this info into the (B72, B73:G73, B74:G74...etc...) on $1 ?

    Any help with this would be much appreciated.

    Re: Calling multiple columns/rows from drop down list

    I have uploaded an example of what I'm trying to accomplish.

    The main sheet is where I want the data from topics to populate to.

    Each red area (topic) is a named range (topic1, topic2, etc.).

    I want to use the dropdown list on the 'main sheet' in G1 to pull one of the ranges I created on the topics page and copy that data into the Green area on the main sheet.

    Im not sure what I should be using or where to put it? A VLOOKUP possibly?
