    Replacing content from Dropdownlist

    Hi i had created a drop downlist (Data Validation list) which consist of the city names and a masterlist of the respective City id to the city names on a different work sheet (same file).
    But i would need to configure in such a way that when i select the city from the drop downlist it would appear as number ( City ID) on the excel file.

    Could any1 guide me on tis?

    which would be

    and value is
    i just used your names better if they were more descriptive
    say matchrng = b2:b10
    indexrng = a2:b10
    but i suspect this could just be done with a simple offset
