Default Drop down list

I think that www.contextures.com has some assistance to offer. Look at this
first:
http://www.contextures.com/xlDataVal02.html
and if that's not exactly what you need, take a look at
http://www.contextures.com/tiptech.html
and go down and look for Dependent List references, she has several.

Default Drop down list

Thankyou your suggestion, I did follow the instructions on the page you
provided, though when I try to create the third column, it doesnt provide the
info as it should, im not sure if the redundancy of info is interfering with
the results. If its not too much trouble, I would like to email you the
workbook, for you to take a look at it, so i can correct and/or make changes
to the format i want to accomplish.
Thankyou
