    Hi, I am new to this forum

    I would like to ask if you could help me with my problem. I am currently creating a progress monitoring report and I have data which looks like this:


    On sheet 1 Column A, let's say I have the name of my staff


    Staff Report
    AAA Report 1
    AVM Report 2
    AAA Report 3
    RGR Report 4
    AVM Report 5
    AVM Report 6





    On sheet 2, I have a dropdown cell for Staff and a dropdown cell for Report.


    What want to do is when, for example I chose Staff AAA, I will only see all the Reports of staff AAA to the Report Dropdown.

    Staff <Dropdown list>
    Report <Dropdown list>

    Hi there, and welcome to the forum. I've moved your post to a new thread, rather than keep it attached to the one you used originally.

    What you're looking for here appears to be a dependent drop down list. It would mean make some changes to your layout, but my suggestion would be to read Debra Dalgleish's tutorial on the subject. It's excellent, and you can find it here: http://www.contextures.com/xlDataVal02.html

    If you need any help implementing the technique, the by all means post back to this thread. Don't be afraid to attach a sample workbook as well. (You can do this by using the Go Advanced feature of the reply, and attaching your workbook there.)

    Cheers,
