Pick List Question

Hello -

I am trying to develop pick lists for a questionnaire I am putting together using Excel.

Here's what I am trying to do:

Picklist would show:
25% - if income < \$25,000
30% - if income between \$25,000 and \$40,000
and so for

But...
the values I use from the picklist for calculations have to be:
25%
30%

I am stumped - any help be appreciated.

Thank you

Workdays for a market open Mon, Wed, Friday?
Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.

Welcome to the Board!

You can use Data-->Validation for the list (use a named range otherwise the commas will throw it off), then a Change event to pull just the percentage:

Excel contains over 450 functions, with more added every year. That’s a huge number, so where should you start? Right here with this bundle.
