Hi,

I have a very basic working knowledge of Excel, but currently a bit stumped as to where to go to find out how to a) insert a drop down menu and b) transfer information from one worksheet cell onto another eg Sheet 4 A104 to Sheet 7 B18. I have tried a couple of formulas but they just flash up #value, so I don't think I'm applying them correctly.

If someone could point me in the right direction for an article on the site, or just let me know how to do either, I'd be really grateful. I am on an administrator controlled computer, so can't download any extras.

Thanks again for all your help!

Welcome to the Mr Excel board!

1. For the drop-down menu, have a look in the built-in Excel Help for 'Data Validation'.

2. For the second question, on Sheet 7, select cell B18, type an = sign, click on the sheet tab of 'Sheet 4' then click on cell A104 and press 'Enter'. Have a look at the resulting formula and you should start to learn how this works.

Not sure if that means you found what you needed or just being polite. :biggrin:

Anyway, if you do need more detailed help, please post back again with more detail of what you require.
