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.
