I have January - December in a drop down list that I've created. I have 6 cells below the drop down(representing 6 additional months) that I would like to have auto create when I select the Month from the drop down. Is there a formula that I can put into the cell below to add 1 month?

Example:

I select March in the drop down

April
May
June
July
August
September

April - September would auto populate.

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},$Z$1:$Z$99,$Y$1:$Y$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

Not easily with the text. You'll need to have March actually be 3/1/2015, and use a custom number format so it displays it as March. (format cells and change it to custom and type mmmm)

Then you can use the following formula, assuming your drop down is in G2. The formula finds the last day of the month, and adds 1 which brings you to the first of the next month.

=EOMONTH(G2,0)+1
