it works good tom, for the new, used and repo column its great, i was trying to do it to a couple other columns, for example, make, and there might be 20 units, different makes, and then we might add a new unit a week later, i see that the select below the last one is blank then others are #n/a, since there will be a variable, and we will add other units, is there a way to hide the #n/a - i tried condition formatting having it turn white *font* if that cell contains #n/a but that doesn't appear to work..additionally tried a formula the if(d14="","", then the formula, neither worked...just didn't want to have to change the data dropdown each time it changes....
..is there another way?
In the formula I gave you, in H8 you can enter
=IFERROR(INDEX($E$7:$E$26, MATCH(0, COUNTIF($H$7:$H7, $E$7:$E$26), 0)),"")
using Ctrl+Shift+enter. then drag that formula down. It will suppress the #N/A formula and still work.
Is that what you are asking for?
