  9. Hello, I've been looking on your videos (there's a ton) but I can't find the one that explains how to insert formulas inside databases. In one of your videos you are using a database where when you enter a name there's an arrow in each cell where you can choose which name is entered in the cell trough a drop down. Also another column is filled (I suppose with a vlookup) with the city corresponding to the person what was entered. Which from your videos explain how to do all of that?

    Thanks a lot for your videos, they are AWESOME, you are the boss!
