Rotating Text and Using the Fill Handle to Create a Series
Custom Fill Sequences
You can create your own
custom lists for use with the
i ll handle. For example, if
you often type in the same
list of products or names
into Excel, you can create
a custom i ll sequence.
You then can type the
i rst product or name and
then use the i ll handle
automatically to i ll in the
remaining products or
names. To create a custom
i ll sequence, open the
Excel Options dialog box by
clicking the Options button
in the Backstage view. Click
the Advanced tab (Excel
Options dialog box) and
then click the Edit Custom
Lists button (Excel Options
dialog box).
