What i want to do sounds simple but I haven’t found a solution.
If name/type is “cable” I want a dropdown list for “att” allowing only code1 values.
If name/type is “htrc” I want a dropdown list for “att” allowing only code2 values.
What I’ve tried is:
- defining a named range called “codes” for $A:$A on sheet1
- data validation for B2 on sheet2 and used formula: =IF($A2=”cable”;INDIRECT(codes=”code1″);INDIRECT(codes=”code2″))
When I’m entering that I’m getting a message saying “The Source currently evaluates to an error. Do you want to continue?” and the dropdown is blank…
We create the drop down list and we use the “OFFSET”, “MATCH”, “VLOOKUP” and “COUNTIF” in data validation.
