I have been working on improving a data sheet that narrows down choice options but hit a snag.
The columns so far have been drop downs via indirect substitute formulae that have been dependent on the previous column content. The one that is needed now needs to limit the range of responses available in the drop downs to 2 sets of options depending what is chosen in the previous column. There are a significant number of responses that can go into the previous column (see example attached as column F on the Reports tab - Jobs), and depending on these it needs to allow either the top half of the table in the data tab - showing D2:D17 to show in the drop-downs, or the lower half, showing D18:D23. Column C on the Data tab would be the responses that would show on the Report tab column F.
This is just a sample sheet and there is significantly more data in the actual sheet that needs to be capture, though only 2 range options.Sample.xlsx
