Hey Mr. Excel guy, I hope all is well today.

I a developing a budget for myself and on the right side of the spreadsheet is a column of general expenses in text. Next to those individual expenses are numbers 1-10. I have Column C designated for the appropriate 'expense ID' that will come from that list on the right side of the spreadsheet. In column D, I would like to be able to type in the number (For example, '1') and have it pull into Column C the appropriate expense name that it correlates with on the right side of the spreadsheet.

I hope this makes clear sense. Thank you a ton for the help!!

Have an awesome day. Please let me know what you find!

Cheers,

Primo
