This is a simple question for most of you. I am trying to create a drop down box for Column A. There are 6 different choices. Line, Substation, Generator, General, Tie Line and All Lines. Since some of these involve 2 words I understand it gets a little more complicated. Also All lines is both Tie Line and Line. I think I have to use a look up table, but not sure how.
Thanks,
Joe

Try this using excel list. Select your data that you want to be in the drop down and then data list (screen scot enclosed also.

You can also add new records to the list (and dropdown) box by just typing in the bottom cell in the list.

That's perfect, except how do I select all lines. This would equal line and Tie Lines. I know how I do it with the custom feature but is there a way to just select all lines.

The most simple way would be to merge your labels so instead of having

Tie Lines
Lines

Change them all to:

Lines/Tie Lines as a combined category. Alternatively, it is possible to write a macro to set the custom filter to = "lines" and "tie lines" and assign this to a button but this is a little more complex.
