Macro for selection choices

EE Pros,

I have a simple WS that should have 2 options for a selection in two cells.  If the button/macro is currently selected,  it produces a 1 or a 2.  If it is 1, then it should allow the user to select a choice by a predetermined drop box.  If 2, it should take the selection from another set of two cells.

Attached is the WS.

Thank you in advance.

Place the following code on Maturity_Model Sheet module for change event and see if this is what you were trying to achieve....
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.CountLarge > 1 Then Exit Sub
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("D29:D30")) Is Nothing Then
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    If Range("L49").Value <> 1 Then
        Application.Undo
        Range("D29").Value = Range("L64").Value
        Range("D30").Value = Range("M64").Value
    End If
    Application.EnableEvents = True
End If
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Neeraj,

Greetings and thank you for jumping in.

I think I may not have been as clear as I should have been in describing what I was looking for.  I added your code and it does work..... but not exactly how I imagined it would.  And it may have to do with the enable events line.

When you select the button (Use Selection), I'm trying to get it to toggle between the choices.  If there is no selection from the dropdown or there is no selection from L64, M64, the cells in D29 and E30 would simply be blank.

Does that make sense?  Sorry I wasn't more clear up front.  Hopefully that is an easy fix.

Does this work for you?
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.CountLarge > 1 Then Exit Sub
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("D29:D30")) Is Nothing Then
    If Target <> "" Then
        Application.EnableEvents = False
        If Range("L49").Value <> 1 Then
            Application.Undo
            Range("D29").Value = Range("L64").Value
            Range("D30").Value = Range("M64").Value
        End If
        Application.EnableEvents = True
    End If
End If
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Not quite.  It still doesn't "toggle" between the two selections when the button is pushed.

Well I am not able to understand your requirement correctly.
Do you have issue with the toggle button or the change event code?
BTW I have inserted a toggle button on the sheet, please use that button and let me know what else you want it to do.
