Hello,

You don't provide much background. What version of SharePoint?
In what context do you want to use " a rollup or drop list, within a list, content editor webpart.etc " ???

If these items are all in the same list, you can create a new list column for the category and assign each list item a category value of either

- lectures
- case summaries
- case presentations

Then you could use SharePoint Designer to create a DVWP  or List view that lists the items grouped by the category.

Please explain the bigger picture.

cheers, teylyn

Hello I am using 2207, and would like a drop down list.

Whichever is easiest to create, in a list for content editor web part.

For example the Dr will have lots of information under a few categories; if I can create a list that I can click on and lectures and a drop down list will appear and when I click on another option like case studies, the lectures sections will roll up and the drop down list for case studies will appear.

Thank you

A drop-down list is used to select items in a form. Is that what you want? If not, it's not a dropdown.

From your screenshot it looks like you want to create a grouped view of a list. As I said above, create a list view with items grouped by list column, or, for more functionality options, create a Data View Web Part (DVWP) with SharePoint Designer.

You can open or close groups by clicking the + or - buttons for the groups.

Comment http:#a37123180 contains the answer to the question. The asker is not using the correct terminology. A drop-down is different to what the asker describes as the desired result, which I interpret as collapsible sections in a SharePoint list view, which can be done with grouping columns.
