excel 2010

hello,
I am working with someone at work who has an Excel 2010 document. In his document, he has a drop down box from a pivot table. When he clicks on the drop down box, a large list of our doctors is listed, and he has to choose each individual doctor, which populates the fields in the excel document with that particular doctor's information, then he can print out the document for that doctor.
He has to do this for each doctor on the list, and it's a BIG list.
So, is there a way to automate a process like this through Excel?

Well I don't know about automation, but I expect the dropdown you are talking about is at the top of the pivot table.  This is the Filters Option,  If you drag that field out of Filters to Rows, you will see all the doctors at one time.  

If you want to only show one doctor per page, you can also use the Show Pages option which will create a new tab for each doctor.  Using the Pivot Table Menu go to Analyze tab (at top of page), Go to Options on the left, Use the dropdown and pick Show Report Filter Pages..
