Can these be created in excel?

I would like to be able to pick names from either a drop-down or picklist and then run formula to give me related values.
 

Excel Facts

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Welcome to the Board!

Sure. The easiest method is with Data Validation.

Type a list somewhere (it can be on a hidden sheet), then highlight it and goto Insert-->Name-->Define and name it.

Then goto the cell where you want the drop-down and goto Data-->Validation-->Allow-->List-->Source-->"=ListName" (no quotes).

Hope that helps,

Smitty
