I want to create dependent drop down list but at the same time I want them to be automated (if possible). For example, say I've got a list of 5 car makers in my main drop down. Then I'll get to choose the models in the 2nd drop down. Once I've selected a specific model, I want the features/details of this model to show up in the 3rd or 4th column.

 

Can this be done?

Hi,

 

This is can be done by some tricks in data validations which involve the named ranges and INDIRECT function.

Watch this video to learn these tricks.
