Dropdown List Question

Hello:
I have three dropdown lists that are populated from a different worksheet. They work without an issues. What I would like to do next is a little more complicated for me. Let's say the dropdowns are "Style (A2)", "Color (B2)", and "Size (C2)". Upon selection of each dropdown, I am populating cell F2 with the selection from A2 (=A2), cell G2 with the selection from B2 (=B2) and cell H2 with the selection from C2 (=C2). What I would like to do after that is have the next selections from cells A2,B2 and C2 populate the next cells down (i.e., F3,G3 and H3) and I would like this to continue as long as the user keeps making selections. Is this possible? Thank you!

You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

Yes, but you will need to use macros rather than linked cells. Where are your dropdowns from - Control Toolbox or Forms Toolbar?

Hello, Andrew:

The dropdowns were created using Data Validation.

Thanks!

I am populating the other cells by using =A2, =B2, etc.
