In the attached example in cell B1 you can select between 2 sites.  When it is populated the drop down menu in cell B2 is populated from a dynamic list found in column “H”.  The issue is that the one of the options is “All Buildings”.  If it is in the list I need it to be first on the list.
Example:
1
2
3
All Buildings
X-1
X-2
Y-4

Desired Out:
All Buildings
1
2
3
X-1
X-2
Y-4
