Hi, everyone.

I don't know if this is a possibility or not but I'm hoping someone can help. I'm looking to see if it's possible to set a formula/equation/conditional formatting so that what's entered in one column will autofill another.  

Example: I have a column called Access Requested (dropdown) and another called Type of Credential.  When Press is selected in the Access Requested column, I want the Type of Credential column to auto fill in Press Pass.  

Any suggestions?  Nothing in conditional formatting seems to help, though I am using this for other purposes.  Thank you all in advance!

    Hi,

    Try this.

    Place the below formula in the "Type of Credential" column.

    =IF([Access Requested]@row = "Press"; "Press Pass")  

    The same version but with the below changes for your and others convenience.  

    =IF([Access Requested]@row = "Press", "Press Pass")

    Depending on your country you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did it work?

    Happy New Year!

  • Hi, Andrée.

    This worked!  Thank you :) I was even able to continue the string so now all 5 drop down options Access Requested auto populate.

    I really appreciate your help!!
