I have a questionnaire that may have additional questions depending on the answer.  For example, if the answer for question 1 is “Yes”, then I want the row that contains question 1.1 to unhide.  If the answer is “No” or “Blank”, then I want to make sure the row that contains question 1.1 is hidden.  Please see the attached sample file.

You would need a macro to do this. To reduce macro coding and increase flexibility it could be more convenient to enter the response for display and the row to display in predefined columns. I have attached a sample file with the following code

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Count > 1 Then
    For Each cel In Target
        Call Worksheet_Change(cel)
    Next cel
End If
If Target.Column = 3 Then
    If LCase(Target.Value) = LCase(Target.Offset(, 2)) Then
        Cells(Target.Offset(, 3), 1).EntireRow.Hidden = False
    Else
        Cells(Target.Offset(, 3), 1).EntireRow.Hidden = True
    End If
End If
End Sub
