Hi

I have the following data in a spreadsheet and currently use the auto-filter to filter down from the column "Section" to give me the number IntItemID, so a user would be selecting an option from each of the columns until they got to a unique "Item ID"

The Excel sheet has 3353 seperate IntItemID's, so you can see why its not so user-fredindly at the moment.

I am trying to create a form to allow users to easily get the ItemID when usign a selection of drop downs rather than the auto-filter, i have successfully done a similar thing on another sheet with Data Validation, but only with two variables, not the 6 as show on this sheet.

The section column has only 3 variables, structures, MEICA and Pipework

Any advice would be greatfully received.
