Using a Check Mark to "Reset" a field-Not using VBA

I am creating a "simple" worksheet. And I'm curious if there is a way to reset a field/dropdown box using Conditional Formatting, NOT VBA.
So for instance. in the "Transportation Mode" section, in the Travel Request TAB, there is a check-mark and a "hidden" field appears and then the user can select a choice within that field. Can I make it to where if the check-mark is unchecked then the hidden field goes back to the main option "SELECT ONE"?

Also, if it is not too much, a second question - Can I create a check box that can hide/unhide entire sections of the form if not needed or in use? For Instance, on the Travel Voucher Tab, Can I hide the LEG2 section entirely, unless needed.

This is a work in progress so there may be errors or issues.

Thank you for all your help

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

Hi Tacnola,

I may be wrong, but I don't think there's a way to reference a checkbox in a worksheet without a bit of VBA code. You may wish to dedicate a column to as a "Check Field" And if the field has a value in it, that can trigger your formulas to populate accordingly.

Same issue with your second question - I don't think there's a way to go about programmatically hiding ranges of a worksheet without a bit of programming.

Sigh**...I was afraid that was going to be the answer. I was hopeful though!!! Thank you for your quick response
