Data Lookup, Edit and Save

Hey everyone,

First post but hopefully shouldn't seem too novice!

Basically I am building a spreadsheet which has a 'Front of House (FOH)' tab. This FOH tab will serve as easy access and edit for data.

At the top of the FOH tab there will be two dependent drop down lists (already done). From selecting the contents of these two drop down lists I would like all the information from background tabs for this selection to come up on the FOH tab. So say I select Fruit > Oranges, I would like information from the 'Fruit' tab and in that tab the 'Oranges' row to come up on the FOH screen.

Then, if possible I would like the user to be able to edit this information on the FOH screen and then all these changes to carried into the background tab. So say when the information came up on Oranges it said we had 21 in stock and we in fact had 34 in stock I would like the person to be able to input this information and the Fruit tab Orange row is amended as well.

Is all this possible or half possible? Thank you so much for any replies!
