This article was previously published under Q105412

SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft Excel, you cannot drag, cut and paste, or copy and paste the drop-down lists that are created when you use the AutoFilter to sort a list.

WORKAROUND

If you want to move the AutoFilter drop-down lists, you must move the data and click the AutoFilter command again.

STATUS

This behavior is by design of Microsoft Excel.

MORE INFORMATION

Although it is not possible to drag, cut, or copy AutoFilter drop-down lists, you can move them if you insert or delete columns or rows that are to the left of, or above, the list range. For example, if there are AutoFilter drop-down lists in cells E10:G10, and you delete column A, the lists shift one column to the left; similarly, if you delete row 7, the lists shift up one row.
