Try this, it uses data validation for the dependency.  It's also has a dynamic range, so you can add as many values you want to each of the 4 columns on the Lists sheet.

sydneyguy,

Perhaps something like the attached file might be what you're looking for. It has three stages of dependant dropdowns.
