Template Builder in Excel

Hello, I'm trying to build a template in excel where a user is presented with an option in a drop down list and based on the selection a list of items is created.  Example: I select "pc checklist" from a drop down list and a list of items pertaining to "pc checklist" is created for the user in the spreadsheet.  Trying to figure out best approach to take to build something like this.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I see martin has posted an example but I haven't time to compare as I'm off to work.

I'll post mine and provide explanation if required.

It uses Data validation, the INDIRECT formula and Named Ranges based on a Table.
