September 18, 2009, Newsletter Issue #325: Use Excel´s Custom Lists feature

Tip of the Week

If you regularly have to type or copy in the same list of information, whether it´s a list of people, clients or whatever, Excel has a handy Custom Lists feature which can save time and improve consistency.

Type your list once (with one entry per cell) and then select the cells. Select Options from the Tools menu and choose the Custom Lists tab.

Click on the Import button and click OK.

Now whenever you type one entry and drag the fill handle down, Excel will complete the list for you.
