    Linking a dropdown box to an array of filtered data

    Greetings,

    I have an array of data that I want to be able to filter based on the selection in a dropdown box. For instance, If I select district manager, I want to show the data of only the people who are successors for district manager. For my own reasons I want to use this method rather than just applying the standard filters to the column headings. I have attached a sample workbook for anyone to work with.

    Thank you in advance for your assistance

    This is exactly what I need. Thank you. How come when I try to apply the formulas to my worksheet I keep getting prompted to select a file to update the data?...............

    Well, of course the sheet names in the formulas I used (Filtered, Data and Lists) were only applicable to my particular workbook. I assume you've amended them accordingly?

    whoops ok I fixed that. However, with the amended formula it still doesnt populate the cells when I select a position. Any other suggestions?

    I'd really need to see the sheet (or a sample therof) to be able to suggest anything.

    Regards
