Create list to choose from
I'm just trying to create a short pulldown list in a spreadsheet. Instead
of having to retype repetitve selections for this spreadsheet that gets used
a lot, I'd like to create a pulldown list, but I'm not sure which kind of
list to choose and I'm not sure how to enter the list.
Can anyone help.
Thanks a bunch.

...Sort and sum data in a table
I have a table of names, with multiple entries of each name. Each name has 5
columns of data that needs to be summed up.
If I use a pivot table, it does not allow me to have column A as the name, B
the sum of column B, C the sum of C, etc. It forces the data into individual
rows, which is not good.
Is there a way to create a list of unique names, and then sum up each column
of data for each of these names?
Thanks in advance
Perhaps you need to put the name header (column A) into the row area of the
pivot table, and each of the B, C, etc., headers into the data area, for

I was wondering if someone might know if it is possible change the

another line was some other color. If not, I guess I will have to use
individual label controls for this. I would rather use a listbox though.
You can do that if you set the owner draw flag. It is pretty easy.
