Could you please send me the file to have a look at it. To do so go to and upload it. You will then get a page that has the download link. Copy the download link and come back here and paste it in your reply.

Ok I think you are referring to "Filters" and not Drop Down controls. If so, Filters in Excel can only be applied in the columns. However I may be able to find a workaround if you can show me a sample output sheet showing how you would like to see the data when 'filtered' on Months for example.
