Hello,

Hoping someone can assist in developing either a macro or a formula which looks at a drop-down list in Column A2 in the attached sample and will display all related text in column R associated with that selection starting at column B2.  For example, if selection 1 is selected from the list, starting at column B2 down it should read ABC, DEF, HIJ, DEF.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

you can alway use ActiveX combo and event driven macros too to do this.
i did produce and example of that, but you have already accepted a solution.

ActiveX combo and a macro, which is not as simple to create in the first instance, but will give you more power and flexability in a coded solution utlimatley.
