Quickly create custom lists and fill cells with them in Excel

Sometimes, we often need to enter some sequence values in order in Excel cells. We can drag the fill handle to fill the cells with the default values in Excel, such as Sun, Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat. But if you need to use other sequence values again and again, you can create your custom lists and fill them into cells vertically or horizontally with Kutools for Excel's Fill Custom Lists.

Click Kutools >> Insert >> Fill Custom Lists. See screenshots:

1. Select the range that you would like to fill with your custom lists.

2. And then apply this utility by clicking Kutools > Insert > Fill Custom Lists, in the Fill Custom Lists dialog box, click Edit list to create a new custom list values as you need.

3. In the opened Custom Lists dialog box, click NEW LIST item from Custom lists, and then input your custom list values one by one under the List entries box, (Note: When you enter the words in the List entries box, you should separate them with the separator comma or Enter key.) See screenshot:

4. Then click Add button to add them into the Custom lists, see screenshot:

5. Click OK to return back to the Fill Custom Lists dialog, select your new created list values, and then choose the fill order from the Fill vertically cell after cell drop down list. See screenshot:

6. Then click Fill Range or double click the selected item, and the selected data list has been filled into the cells in their order vertically. After finishing the operation, close the dialog box.


If you have a list of the data values in your worksheet which you want to add them into the Custom list, you needn't enter the values manually one by one, you just need to import the values into the list. Please do as follow:

Select the range of values that you want to use, and in the Fill Custom Lists dialog box, click Edit list button, then in the popped Custom Lists dialog, click Import button, and the selected cell values will be inserted into the Custom list, you can use the item anywhere.


If the range you want to import is include multiple rows and columns, an Import Custom Lists dialog is popped after clicking Import button. If you check Columns, the range you select is imported as lists by columns, if you check Rows, the range is imported as lists by rows. See screenshots:
