Google Sheets dropdown lists based on the answers of another
1
HI there, 
I'm trying to make a sheet that has multiple drop down cells but I want the second drop-down to show different options depending on the answer to the first. Eg. If drop down 01 answer is Food and Drink then dropdown 02 to show Restaurant or Cafe.

Is this possible and I hope it makes sense.

Thank you in advance.

Hello,
 
Yes it is possible but consider sharing a copy of your Google sheet or a sample Google sheet so that I or others (in case I’m not around or unable to help) can further assist you.
 
 
 
Thanks,
James :)
 
PS,
 
Have one tab sheet show your lists of "Food and Drinks" in one column and "Restaurant or Cafe" in the second column.

 Ok, so if I'm completely honest, I've never had to do anything even remotely clever on sheets/excel so please treat me like an idiot 😆

Link to a sample copy of the sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1la_RqIe9jukUAzT34jUpS16fOSHWtC4bRL5lr8-NSUA/edit?usp=sharing

So I created the list in J using the data validation tool. How do I get cells K and L to display different lists depending on what is selected in J?

Thank you in advance. The help really is appreciated.
