Well, isn't it always funny how things work out? Sometimes things that
would seem to be easy turns out to be difficult.
So, let me get this straight, you have a drop down list, select an item from
that list and you want the price of that item to pop up?
Let's say A1 is your drop down list (assuming that you have this info
defined). Also, let's assume that you have 3 items in your drop down list,
guns, butter, and bicycles.
In another cell (say B1, maybe off to the side or something, used as a
"scratch pad"), put in the formula:
This will store the value as selected from the list.
In another cell, where you want the price to be listed, use a VLOOKUP and
have your guns, butter, and bicycle prices arranged already.
a b c
1 gun gun =vlookup(b1,a5:b7,2)
5 gun $300
6 butter $2
7 bicycle $100
Hope that helps, cheers!
