Static Value from Drop down menu Excel

There is for that I attached. At the right corner of the page, there is a dropdown for bank accounts

Each bank account has a different savings interest rate

At each line, a transaction type is added with various info.

The layout is such that there is a dropdown for bank accounts at the top right of the worksheet.
New balance and transaction will be posted as shown. Each time a transaction is registered in a new excel row, interest is computed depending on the rate categories for different account types entered in
Now the problem is every time I change the dropdown value of E2 (to add for a new transaction), it changes the values for ALL the previous rows in the interest computation. I don’t want that, once a row is filled, the value of the account type [for that specific row] stays static (doesn’t changes)  
Reality is that each row has a possibility of referring to different bank account type.
I know that having the bank account type field [E2] in each row will help in this case but unfortunately that’s not the layout. The bank account type field can only be at the top left of the worksheet

Thank you

I think this is not possible.

As I see it, you will need a dropdown for each individual row.
You must have something or some value on each row that points to the required bank

You just need to save the BAL (Bank Account Ledger) with each row, then do your vlookup based on that.

See attached.

The best way of doing what you want is with a Form.

If you use VBA and a user-form, then you can have dropdowns and all the other bells and whistles. The macro associated with the user-form would add the data to a growing table of data.

If you don't want to use VBA, then you can still use a Form--but Microsoft chose not to put the tool on the ribbon. You can add it to the Quick Access Toolbar, and then use it to enter your data, however. http://spreadsheets.about.com/od/datamanagementinexcel/ss/090717_data_form.htm    While this type of Form can add new rows of data to list, it doesn't have the nice dropdown feature that you initially inquired about.
