Hello,
There is a  source sheet that has the relationship between –
Region, country, state, county, city.

How do I do a dependent drop down from this data for the above?

Thank you

Hello itJockey,

thank you for your help so far. I want it to read directly from raw data that has that relationship. Example of raw data is similar to here >>
http://www.contextures.com/xlSampleData01.html


Now how do i set it up - i am staying away from any manual creation as this report will be daily and needs to be refreshed for the 5 drop down metrics.

Also your data has only one city under any given condition - whereas in real world  - its one to many

Am I right in thinking that you want the successive dropdown lists to be shortened by the previous selection? For example you choose Americas in the Region and the Country list is filtered for only those Countries in Americas region. Then the State list is filtered for only those states in the Country, and onward for county and city.

Thanks

Also, by the way in the UK we do not have States; we only have counties. So straight away there is going to be a problem with you lists. Then again it could be a potential saving as you could combine the two lists into one, "State/County".

Thanks

See below for a couple of examples of the equivalent structure in the UK.

Where I am currently sat:
Region:    Europe
Country:  UK (or would it be England; as opposed to Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland)
County:   Somerset
District:  South Somerset
Town:     Yeovil

Where I live:
Region:    Europe
Country:  UK
County:   Somerset
District:  Sedgemoor
Town:     Bridgwater

Thanks
