Hi there - how do i link data in excel? My problem is that I want to assign attributes to names in a drop down list. So if i chose x in the drop down list, then attributes a,b,c will appear in the next column. and when i chose y in the drop down list, then attributes d,e,f will appear in the next column and so on... can anyone help me please?

Are you asking about Dependent Validation Lists?

A pretty good explanation can be found here:

I like that explanation because it also explains how excel automatically deals with Named Ranges that have spaces in them.

If you Google "Dependent Validation Lists" you'll get lots of other hits.

Please point out the part of the OP's question that made you think that this was an Access related question.

Maybe I missed it.

I will assume - for now - that this was not just an attempt to get your web site mentioned in a Help forum.
