"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Those dropdowns and checkboxex are inserted automatically when you apply a filter to your data set.
On any worksheet where you want to setup the same dropdown with checkboxex, follow these steps...

1) Select any cell in the header row.
2) Go to Data Tab --> Click on Filter and this will apply the same dropdown options within your column headers.


1) Select any cell in the header row.
2) Press Ctrl+Shift+L. It's a shortcut key to apply filter on a data set.

Note: Remember that pressing Ctrl+Shift+L again will remove the filter you applied to the data set.
