    Matching value to column and row dependency list.. Please help

    Hi All,

    I've been struggling with dependencies, so I have two sheets.. the first sheet contains a simple table:

    Employee Username Status Status Note
    Alex
    Josh
    Sarah
    David

    This is the second table:

    Employee Username Active Password Change Days Since Change
    Alex al2 Y Y 20
    Alex alex Y Y 11
    Alex aa2 N N 0
    Josh josh2 Y Y 10
    Sarah ssarah N N 0
    Sarah sarah Y Y 1
    David David Y Y 4

    The problem is in the first table as I don't know how to populate the "Status Note" column which depends on these two columns
    The column Username which is a dependent list from table 2 that contains the username associated with each employee selection
    The column Status which is a dropdown list that contains (Active, Password Change, and Days Since Change)

    For example if the following is selected for user Alex: al2 and Active how can I make Excel display Y in the status note column
    Employee Employee Username Status Status Note
    Alex al2 Active Y
    Josh
    Sarah
    David


    Any help is greatly appreciated ! Thank you in advance

    Hi Sarah112,

    Assuming that the username is unique and cant be duplicated, you can just use vlookup to search for the status, or there is something i miss?

    See attached file and tell me if there is something wrong.

    Hi Jul Stev,

    Thanks for your reply. This function would work if I was only trying to base the result on the username column.. but I want to find the result based on the choices made in two columns B & C drop down lists (Username and Status).. I've attached my file.. For example when I select al2 in column B and Days Since Change in column C I would get 20.. I wasn't able to make this happen and get the result I want in column D
