Difficult Excel Formula - Populating Data from Drop Down Menu


New Member
May 8, 2014
Hi All,

I am trying to create a formula to have data populated from a drop down menu but I am unable to get it to work correctly.

Depending on which department you select, the data should automatically populate, but I am not sure what kind of formula to use given how my data is currently displayed.

I am currently using the below formula that pulls in any data that has a value associated with it.


My issue is, how do I use this formula as well as another formula to pull in the data I need depending on which Department is selected?

Drop Down Tab:
Department #500
Revenue IN from:
Corporate Communications200Domestic
Washington DC300Domestic
Silicon Valley400Domestic
Santa Monica500Domestic
New York600Domestic
San Diego800Domestic
San Francisco900Domestic

I am not sure how to upload an excel file or how to share one through DropBox. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank You!
