Excel AutoFill

Basic excel question. How do I have cells auto populate based on another cells value. Example if the user enters Baseball then another field will enter a Y for team sport.

Thank you.

You can use an event which requires code, or you can use a formula.

So if column A has Baseball and you want Y in column B, then enter this formula and drag down:


This will autopopulate column B with a Y when you enter in Baseball in column A.  When something else is entered or nothing at all then column B remains blank.

Thank you I knew it was simple I just don't have that much experience with Excel.
