#### Calcs & Data Validation

```Looking for an easy way to complet the following. I imagine their must be a
quick & easy method.
Cell A5 has a drop down list which corresponds to a range on another
worksheet. It has 300+ entries. In cell B5 i will enter a number/qty. What i
would like is that as each of the items in the list has a corresponding cost
(on other worksheet),  i would like to know an easy way to calculate the cost
(in C5) based upon the qty entered (B5) & the cost of the item selected.
I have done it before with 'IF' function for a small selection, but figure
there must be an easier way with 300+ items.
Hope i havent made this to confusing

Thanks in advance for any assistance
```

```See if this is what you had in mind...

Assuming each item in the list is unique.

Sheet2 A2:A300 = items
Sheet2 B2:B300 = price

Sheet1 A5 = drop down list of items
Sheet1 B5 = qty
Sheet1 C5 = formula:

=SUMIF(Sheet2!A\$2:A\$300,A5,Sheet2!B\$2:B\$300)*B5

Evening the data
Have potted some line charts from data tables relating to vehicle flow volumes. The maximum allowable flow is 24000, however, actual volumes exceed this. I can limit the chart to only show up to 2400 but does anyone know a way to automatically re-distibute the 'excess' flow and include it below the maximum volume and to the right of that point?? Does that make sense???? Thanks I don't quite see what you're after.
