Kutools for Excel

Boosts Excel With 300+
Powerful Features

With Kutools for Excel, users gain access to three distinct types of advanced drop-down lists. (Multi-select Drop-own List, Drop-down List with Check Boxes or Searchable Drop-down List.) Often, you might need to assess the scope of these lists within your current workbook or worksheet, whether to modify or delete them. To address these needs efficiently, Kutools for Excel introduces the Advanced Dropdown List Manager feature. This powerful tool compiles a comprehensive overview of all advanced drop-down lists present in a selected worksheet or across an entire workbook. It also enables users to filter for a specific type of drop-down list. Furthermore, it provides the flexibility to edit or remove any advanced drop-down list directly from the interface, streamlining the management of your drop-down lists with ease and precision.
