# Excel formula help

Hi, new and need help with a formula.....
If in cell A1 I create a drop down menu such as Monday to Friday. Then i need a formula in cell B1 that will display whatever the data is in cell C1 if Monday is selected, C2 if Tuesday is selected, C3 if Wed is selected and so on. Is there a formula capable of doing this?

Hi,

`=IF(A1="Monday",C1,IF(A1="Tuesday",C2,IF(A1="Wednesday",C3,IF(A1="Thursday",C4,IF(A1="Friday",C5,"")))))`

Or one of these formulas if you have Excel 2019 or Office 365:

`=IFS(A1="Monday",C1,A1="Tuesday",C2,A1="Wednesday",C3,A1="Thursday",C4,A1="Friday",C5,TRUE,"")`
`=SWITCH(A1,"Monday",C1,"Tuesday",C2,"Wednesday",C3,"Thursday",C4,"Friday",C5)`

Hope that helps

You may also use LOOKUP like this:

=LOOKUP(2,1/(
{"Monday";"Tuesday";"Wednesday";"Thursday";"Friday"}=A1),
C\$1:C\$5)
