How do I create a multi-row list box in Excel 2010

I have 2 columns of values in excel, lets call them Selection1 and Selection2.

I want to provide users with a drop-down that allows them to select either 'Selection2' or 'Selection2'.

Based on their selection, a series of cells would be updated with the values associated with either 'Selection1' or 'Selection2'.

Appreciate any help.

You can click Data ==> Data validation option. in the dialog box you select List option and say from where it has to pick. Please find the image for your reference.

instead of relating them to cell contents, you can also type the values in the data validation box :

option1 ; option 2

the user will then have to choose between option 1 and option 2

Can you post an example workbook showing which cells you want updated based on the drop down list?

Refer to the attached screen-shots.

I have 2 columns, titled 'Selection1' and 'Selection2'. Each of these have a series of data-rows associated with them.

I want to create a drop-down that allows users to choose either 'Selection1' or 'Selection2'. Based on their selection the associated data cells below will update.

User has selected 'Selection1' from drop-down
 User has selected 'Selection2' from drop-down

you can use the formula like, =IF($H$4=$D$4,D5,IF($H$4=$E$4,E5,"None"))

Please refer the sample workbook.
