Populate other cells based on drop down value

Hi All,

I need your assistance with drop down values.

I have sheet 5 with data. Columns A to H.
In sheet 1, C2. I created a drop down list from range Sheet5.A2 to A100.
The drop down works okay in Sheet1.
The question is, how can I automatically populate Sheet1.C3 with a value range from Sheet5.B2 to B100 based on the drop down value.

Thanks.

Hi,
I get a blank value with this
=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(C2,Sheet5!A2:B100,2,0),"")

Any other suggestions?

You will get blank in C3 if the value selected in C2 on Sheet1 is not found in A2:A100 on Sheet5.
Are you sure that the value selected in C2 on Sheet1 is there on Sheet5 in the range A2:A100?
