excel and drop down lists

Last Modified: 2014-12-28
I have an excel spreadsheet with a drop down list (data validation) which is being fed from a sql connection
I want to be able to select a value from this list and get the corresponding row vale in another drop down list showing up on the same sheet

Can someone please give me a scenario to do this

I am familiar with excel and data validation so I only need to know the sequences involved
