    Autopopulate cellls based on dropdown

    I have a named range "Title" on my "Settings" worksheet.

    In two separate worksheets ("Direct" & "Partner"), I want to be able to auto-populate a group of cells on workbook open.

    Essentially, if Title="Quote", I want the group of cells to be blank so that the user can enter whatever text they want.

    If it is NOT "Quote", I have specific text (located in my "Data" worksheet) I need hard coded into the cells on workbook open or delete, etc.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Attach a sample workbook. Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and use the paperclip icon to open the upload window.

    I'm just trying to figure out the appropriate macro to accomplish what I want, which seems quite simple (but I don't know VBA very well).

    Basically,

    If Sheet("Settings").Range("Title") = "Quote"
    Then
    Sheet("Direct").Range("B30") = ""

    If not
    Sheet("Direct").Range("B30) = Sheet("Data").Range("P14")


    I realize this is not correct code, but hopefully someone will understand what I'm trying to accomplish.

    Thanks!
