Default Drop down lists that auto create and then filter the next drop down list

I'm trying to set up a spreadsheet using drop down menus

I currently have some 120 rows.

In the first column the are 4 possible choices of form (approx 30
records will have this value). However these values will change
regularly and I dont' want to keep looking to see what they are.

In the second column are names.

When I select the form I only want the second column to have the names
of people from that form.

I can do this using Autofilter if the records are on the same sheet
but I would have to hide a lot of rows and columns that I don't want
the user to see. I would like do the filtering on one worksheet, while
the data is held on another. On the first worksheet I would display a
range of graphs etc. based on the data found

Does that make sense?

Thanks

See Debra Dalgleish's coverage of Dependent Lists:

Is that something you can work with?

Post back if you have more questions.
