I have a drop down list of Doctors names that staff pick from on a form (over 90 doctors). It will just be 1 name that is chosen from the list. I need the doctor's email address to populate in the sheet (not on the form) in the cell next to the name. I have a separate sheet with the doctor's names and email addresses. I cannot figure out the formula! Any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    Hi @Kari G

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You could use cross-sheet formulas combined with either a VLOOKUP or INDEX/MATCH structure to connect the sheets, and when you update the source sheet, it will reflect on the destination sheet.

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
