Hello, I am having trouble wrapping my head around some things with both
spreadsheet and database. I haven't worked with either since I graduated in
2007, so I don't really know what I'm doing.
My project is to create a fully interactive and (as much as possible)
automatic character sheet for a roleplaying game.
Right now I have a crude but functional sheet that is able to work with
everything vital except equipment variables. 

I attached a picture of what I am trying to accomplish that has me
confounded at the moment. I want to, in the weapon and armor tables, be able
to populate the whole row with relevant data simply by selecting an item in
the Name columns. For example, if I enter Broadsword in the weapon name
column I want it to automatically fills  the rest of the row with its
damage, size, reach and so on.
For the moment I've simply created drop-down lists with all the possible
variations for each field and ask the user to refer to the rulebook and
extra sheets I'm creating, as a quick reference to select the appropriate

Another thing I want to do, but isn't really necessary, is make the sheet to
automatically subtract your total bonus skill points as you assign them to
skills; I simply can't figure out a way to accomplish this. I embedded my
spreadsheet file to this message if you want to dig into the details; I
welcome any advice on how to make my functions more efficient.
