How to direct user to enter certain cells from drop down list?

How do i direct the user to enter certain cells after a certain data

I want to make it such that unless the respective option in the drop
down list is chosen, the user cannot enter in the corresponding cells.

Thank you.

Multi-User Access to Data in Outlook
In the office where I work, we manually track data that comes in via fax and email on a hand-written log. Does anybody know how to place that log into MS Outlook so that everyone in the office can access the data. Currently, if a client calls for the status on a particular file, who ever answers the call must track down the log book. If the information was somehow available in Outlook, then all they would have to do was open the folder and check the status. Any ideas?

public calendar share view incorrect for one user

New Windows 2003 User can not get Exchange 5.5 Public Folder
To whom ever: I have been testing an Outlook addin and we had to test some functions for a mobile user. The administrator created a new user on the Windows 2003 Domain.

public lists
is ther a way to block outside (spammers) to send to group lists? Hi Mike, If you are running Exchange 5.5 only, then you could remove the SMTP Address from the Groups and nobody outside of your Exchange Organization would be able to send to them. If you are using Exchange 2000, then you could create a new Recipient Policy that only applies to distribution groups. You could then set it to give the distribution groups an email address of alias@domain.local instead of This will prevent anyone from outside from emailing those aliases. -- Thanks, James Burrage This posting...

Deleting User Accounts
When a user account is deleted in the application of DYN GP, does the database account need to remain in the database or can it be deleted? If it needs to remain on the database, can the rights be changed to a db_reader instead of db_writer? For GP versions 9.0 and later, deleting the user in GP should also delete the SQL user. For earlier versions, it's possible to delete one without the other depending on your settings. In either case though, nothing in GP needs the SQL user to remain there, so unless you have some reporting or other products using that SQL login, you can dele...

Use cell value as cell address
Hello everyone. I have a worksheet "Main" of 39,000 rows in which column B contains a number between 1 and 7,500. Column C is an empty column I have added.
