Load dropdown list based on the selected value in other dropdown list


#1

Hi,

Please find the attached excel sheet(template6.zip (9.7 KB)
) and review “Holdings” and “Reference Data” sheets.

My requirement is to load two dropdown lists in “Holdings” sheet for “BroadCategory” and “Granular category” columns. Both dropdowns for “Broad Category” and “Granular category” willl load the data from “Reference Data” sheet. But the second dropdown “Granular Category” has to load the data based on the selected value in First dropdown.

For ex:
Broad Category- dropdown will load these 3 items from “Reference Data” sheet.
BC1
BC2
BC3

Granular Category
BC1 – If BC1 is selected in first dropdown then it should load below items.
----GC1
----GC2
BC2 --If BC2 is selected in first dropdown then it should load below items.
-----GC3
-----GC4

Both Broad Category and Granular Category values will be there in “Reference Data” sheet.
(It’s similar to what we see as cascading dropdowns for country-state hierarchy.)

Please provide a solution as soon as you can as it is urgent for our client.

Also, I will be importing this data back to my application later, so i will be needing the values (or even Ids) selected in dropdown , so please consider that too.

Thanks,
Prathap
