Hello,

I am trying to make an ifs statement that works with data validation.

I want it to be:

IFS(A1="Location1","Fred",A1="Location2","Mike",A1="Location3", *drop down of 3 names*)

(If A1= Location 1 then A2 autopopulates to Fred, same with location 2 and Mike, Location 3 I want a drop down of 3 names in A2)

Any ideas on how it would be able to work?

Thanks!

With formulas, the “auto populate” part of you requirement cannot be done. An alternative would be to have “Fred”, “Mike”, or the 3 Names in the drop-down list. In any case, you have to select the name from the drop-down list.
