Hi all ,

I hope this isn't asking too much, but i need some help. Unfortunately i cant post my own code on here due to my work restricting me.

Anyway:

I have 2 workbooks, lets call them wb1 and wb2, I am looking to get data from wb1 to appear in a drop down list and textbox on wb2. here is what i mean.

TitleTextCategories
name 1aacat 1
name 2bbcat 2
name 3cccat1
name 4ddcat4
name 5eecat3
name 6ffcat3

<tbody>
</tbody>

this is the spoof info i need to show. I need some code to do 2 things:
1, look for a category, and if it matches display the title in the drop down list.
2, when you select the title from the drop down list, show the text in a text box.

I hope that someone will be able to help.

Thanks in advance from a 1st time poster :)
