Dependent Dropdown List

Microsoft Microsoft excel 2007 (pc)

Specs: Windows Vista

I'd like some help with a problem. I've a data
set that looks like this:

Col 1 Col 2 Col 3 Col 4
A 2 100 X
A 3 200 X
A 4 300 Y
A 5 400 Z
B 3 300 X
B 4 400 Y
B 5 400 Y
B 6 500 Z

I need four data entry cells for Col1 - Col4 with
in-cell dropdown list. If a value in Col1 is
selected, only the possible values should
appear for Col2. When Col2 is selected, the
possible values from Col3 should appear and
so on. For example: A, 3, 200, Z selection
should not be possible.

Thanks for all the help in advance!

The trick here is to use the INDIRECT function and Named Ranges.

Instead of detailing all of the steps in a response, I'll suggest that you review the instructions found here:
