Custom Lists

Custom lists are an excel feature that saves time when entering data.

In the example below “Monday” is entered in cell B4. Using the autofill feature explained previously to copy the cells contents, it fills the other cells with the remaining days of the week and then repeats.

Filling the days of the week

This works because the days of the week are stored as a custom list. To view the custom lists click the Office Button > Excel Options and then the Edit Custom Lists button.

Edit custom Lists

There are lists already setup for abbreviated days of the week and months too.

It is possible to create your own custom list. Simple type the items of the list in the List entries box separating them by pressing Enter, or select a range of cells that contain the list entries and click Import. The image below shows both methods being used.
