I need to create a decision tree but cannot find the correct command for my formula. I have a list of questions in my excel spreadsheet. I want to hide all but the first question. Based on the yes or no answer for the first question, I want it to unhide the next question in the sequence. If A1 is yes, then unhide B2. If no, unhide E2. Then I want to continue the question trend until the final answer or instruction is determined. Can someone help me write the formula correctly?
 

Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

Rows cannot be hidden and unhidden by the use of worksheet formulas. Also, because B2 and E2 are both in Row 2, it is not possible, by any means, to have one hidden and the other visible. So, in your scenario, both B2 and E2 would be unhidden if A1 is 'yes' or if A1 is 'no'.
