Default copy drop down menu into another cell?

Hi-
Can you copy and paste a drop down menu in Word 2007 to several cells in a
table? I'm creating a report card and need to copy a drop down menu
containing grades to several cells by subject. I can't figure it out so far.

Thumbs up Answer: copy drop down menu into another cell?

Hi Mark!

Yes, you can definitely copy and paste a drop down menu in Word 2007 to several cells in a table. Here's how you can do it:
  1. First, create the drop down menu in one of the cells in the table. You can do this by selecting the cell, then going to the "Developer" tab in the ribbon (if you don't see this tab, you may need to enable it in the Word options). Click on the "Drop-Down List Content Control" button in the "Controls" group, and select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.
  2. In the "Content Control Properties" dialog box, you can enter the items you want to appear in the drop down menu in the "Drop-Down List Properties" tab. Click "OK" when you're done.
  3. Once you've created the drop down menu in one cell, select the cell and press "Ctrl+C" to copy it.
  4. Next, select the cells where you want to paste the drop down menu. You can select multiple cells by clicking and dragging your mouse over them, or by holding down the "Ctrl" key and clicking on each cell.
  5. Finally, press "Ctrl+V" to paste the drop down menu into the selected cells. The drop down menu should now appear in each of the cells you selected.

That's it! You should now have a drop down menu that appears in multiple cells in your table. Let me know if you have any other questions or if there's anything else I can help you with.

I assume you're using a content control. Click the handle on it, then press
Ctrl+C to copy it to the clipboard. Click where you want it copies, and
press Ctrl+V (paste). Then modify the properties--if needed--to reflect the
fact that it's for a different subject than the one you copied (in Design
Mode, right-click the control and choose Properties).
